Liberty coach Hugh Freeze has been continuing to show up on game days even though he’s dealing with major health issues. On opening night he literally worked from a hospital bed up in the home press box in a shutout loss to Syracuse. Last week he employed a dentist’s chair so he could be on hand for a three-touchdown defeat to Louisiana-Lafayette.
Tonight he’ll be much closer to the sidelines, perched atop a makeshift platform with a nice office chair. It’s not anything outlandish. In fact, it’s a workspace a lot of Americans can relate to — you know, minus the music stand.
The Flames are hosting Buffalo. All of this dedication to the job would be a little sweeter if it resulted in a win.
It will be interesting to see how vocal the peanut gallery perched just over his shoulder will be should things go south.
