The strangest story of this young college football season refuses to die. No, it keeps living and only gets stranger.
After coaching Liberty’s season-opener from a hospital bed inside the Williams Stadium press box, Flames head coach Hugh Freeze is unsure if he’ll make the trip with the team for this Saturday’s game at Louisiana-Lafayette.
But if he does, according to multiple reports, he’ll coach not from a hospital bed but a dentist’s chair.
Update on the best story in college football this season: Source tells me Liberty is overnighting a dentist’s chair to Lafayette, LA for Hugh Freeze to sit in to coach from the press box tomorrow.

Yahoo‘s Pat Forde confirmed DeArmond’s report that Liberty is preparing to have Freeze coach from a dentist’s chair in the event he makes the trip.
Update: The chair has arrived.

Pat, does it raise high enough for me to see the field and swivel 180 degrees and get stuck there if we aren’t moving the ball ?
