I'm glad to see that we were not the only ones puzzled by this mysterious team. Looks like we were ahead of the pack by a couple of years.

So many questions about College of Faith but I think the biggest - by far - is how do well-established schools like Texas Southern, Davidson, West Alabama, Arkansas-Monticello, etc. justify scheduling them?

If anyone has additional information, I would appreciate clarification of the following:

Did the West Memphis, Arkansas 'College of Faith' team play just for one year (2012)?

Where was the 2013 team of the same name based, and what nickname(s) did they use?

The reddit thread I mentioned above notes a "University of Faith" based in Florida - did a team of that name play any games in 2014, in addition to the "College of Faith" (Charlotte NC) that played a few games?

(Some of this is probably covered in that reddit thread but I was trying to avoid reading through 700 messages)

From what I can gather, there's some sort of religious exemption to state recognition/certification that these "College/University of Faith/Live/God's Chosen" schools are exploiting to pull off what appears to be a scam.
