Air Force called practice off today, for the second straight week. Smart move, there’s no need to run a veteran team into the ground in August.
Here’s some links to stories in The Gazette this week:
- Air Force wants to improve on special teams. I know adding the title of special teams coordinator to Ben Miller’s job description probably isn’t a big deal, but it’s symbolic at least. Calhoun didn’t have a special teams coordinator for any of his first four seasons.
- Speaking of special teams, had a fun time breaking down film with Jonathan Warzeka for this story on the art of being a kickoff returner. He’s one of the best at it.
- Here’s an update on Tim Jefferson, and his lack of interest in setting individual records.
- A couple notes today, led off by defensive end Ben Kopacka’s recovery from knee surgery.
