RE: Bowl Game
The Orlando Sentinel’s Brant Parsons and Stadium’s Brett McMurphy both have Liberty in the Cure Bowl as a replacement for the AAC, and both reporters have the Flames playing former Big South Conference rival Coastal Carolina.

Ideally this wouldn’t be a replacement game for the AAC if we were a member of that conference and they wouldn’t then need to worry about losing a bowl slot. Thus the AAC should ask us to join! Eh eh eh, see how that works!?!03-lmfao

If we are 7-5 the Cure Bowl has to take us if they can’t fill the spot.

7-5 with two FCS wins is the same as 6-6 with one FCS win as far as the selection goes.

I understand that. That would mean we had 5 FBS wins and 1 qualifying FCS win meaning we were bowl eligible. Due to our agreement with the Cure Bowl they would have to take us over a 5-7 team.

RE: Bowl Game
So with another week of data on the books, I’ll go ahead and say that if Liberty beats both UMass and New Mex. State, then the Flames will definitely be in the Cure Bowl on December 15th. There’s simply not going to be any other option, unless they take a 5-7 team instead.

RE: Bowl Game
Agreed. But those are big “ifs.” I think we’ll splint those two games, most likely losing to UMass and beating N.M. State at home. We are going to hammer Norfolk St. to end the season. But we’ll get punched in the mouth hard a couple times at UVa and Auburn.

Still, can you imagine the positive momentum we’d gain from a bowl game our first year?

RE: Bowl Game
The game @UMass is a toss-up IMHO so I definitely wouldn’t be too surprised at the outcome, win or lose. But my honest intuition is that Liberty will be up for the game, well-rested from the Bye week, and come back with the W.

Know for sure in 3 days!

Could be that they have come to the conclusion that a bowl game for Liberty this year is highly unlikely due to the fact that only 78 teams can go to a bowl this year and 48 teams already have enough wins to go to a bowl game which only leaves 30 teams that have qualify for a bowl game and there are 29 teams that are only 1 win away from that magic number with another 20 teams besides Liberty that are only 2 wins away.
Remember Liberty can only go to a Bowl game this year if every 6-6 team has a bowl game and before the highest APR 5-7 team is awarded a bowl game.
The Cure Bowl has to take a 6-6 team over Liberty this year even if Liberty does not lose another game this season.

RE: Bowl Game
@ArmyMike: point taken.

I admit the loss at UMass was so heartbreaking that I just didn’t have the energy or desire to talk about it. Just sort of numb for a few days.

Anyway, the main thing now is play as hard as possible against Auburn, then WIN the last two games and finish 6-6.
