Liberty University Expansion

Liberty University Expansion - The largest Christian university in the world is about to get a bit bigger.

Liberty University is announcing a major expansion on campus that will carry a hefty price tag, but an exact total still isn't known.

The University says its ultimate goal is to be for Evangelical Christians, what Notre Dame University is for Catholics. The school's chancellor says now is the time to start reaching that goal.

"Construction prices have never been lower and frankly we just need the space," said Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr.

Recession or not, Liberty University is about to begin a major campus expansion. Chancellor Falwell says it will change the look of campus.

"Financially our school has grown and improved as much as you've seen physically, and we are in a position to really move to the next level," said Falwell.

Falwell says the changes include a brand new: health sciences building, visitors center, inter-mural fields and parking lots.

Construction would also include demolishing some older buildings on campus and creating a traditional college green.

A pedestrian bridge across Wards Road is also in the works, in conjunction with the city of Lynchburg.

"It's sort of a rearranging of a lot of our academic programs, shifting of locations and a beautifying of campus," explained Falwell.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
