Don't whine; just win. Need to get the confidence and unselfishness back that we had at the beginning of the season. Planning on making the trek to Jacksonville for the tournament. Hopefully, there will be enough tickets available. Go Flames! #lightemup
I fail to see any selfishness or lack of confidence in this team. Conference wins on the road are hard to come by, which is why as fans, we have every right to point out the inequities in our having to play more than our share of road games. If our team and coaches were "whining", that would be counterproductive. They are not.
Manson pointed out something that had not occurred to me. While I still think it is stupid and totally unnecessary, there are scenarios where N Bama and Bellarmine being in the tournament could play out in our favor. In the unlikely (but far from impossible) event that they end up playing each other in the final, because we are a lock to have the highest NET ranking, all we would need to do is make the semis to gain the automatic bid. As Liberty fans, we basically should be pulling for those 2 teams any time they are not playing us. It would still be an embarrassment for the conference, and they would be far better off to just not include teams in the tournament who are not eligible for the bid.
