LFSN reporter Nick Pierce had a chance to visit with Flames Offensive Coordinator Joe Dailey during Liberty's annual bye week, recapping the first half of the season.
Liberty's offense got off to a hot start in 2017, as the Flames averaged 536.0 total offensive yards per game and 49.3 points per contest during its first three games of the season. The lofty numbers helped Liberty start its season 3-0 for the seventh time in program history and the first since 2008.
However, the Flames have been limited to 327.0 total offensive yards per game and 8.5 points per contest during of the last two contests with both games resulting in losses.
Liberty's offense continues to be powered by its passing games as the Flames' 331.4 passing yards per game accounts for 73.3 percent of the team's total offense this season.
Despite the lofty passing yardage numbers this season, Liberty has had a player finished with 100 rushing yards in three of the first five games of 2017 (Baylor – Carrington Mosley: 122 yards; Morehead State – Kentory Matthews: 103 yards, 2 TDs; Indiana State – Carrington Mosley: 102 yards, 2 TDs).
