  • How would you sum up Air Force’s football season?

    Mon, November 26, 2012 by David Ramsey with 126 comments

    A success? A failure? Somewhere between the two?

    After the most tumultuous offseason in the program’s history, Air Force managed six victories.

    But those six victories were not especially impressive.

    Are you satistfied?

    Let me know.

  • Does Air Force have a chance for upset?

    Sat, November 24, 2012 by David Ramsey with 21 comments

    The Falcons are 17-point underdogs today against Fresno State, and that line seems a bit harsh for a team that nearly upset Michigan at The Big House.

    Do the Falcons have a chance today?

    Let me know what you think.

  • How do you feel about Air Force’s bowl bid?

    Sun, November 18, 2012 by David Ramsey with 47 comments

    The Falcons have earned six wins this season, but let’s take a look at the six wins. Air Force’s victims have lost 46 of 66 games. One of those victims – Idaho State – is 1-10 and has allowed 50 or more points eight times. (Idaho State held Air Force to 49 points.)

    The Falcons are playing in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth Dec. 29.

    Is this a bowl-worthy team?

    Let me know your thoughts.

  • Air Force struggling against Hawaii – are you surprised?

    Fri, November 16, 2012 by David Ramsey with 33 comments

    Must say, I am surprised. Falcons have only 94 yards on the ground, at an average of 3.4 yards per carry, against one of the worst rush defenses in college football.

    It’s 7-7 with 2:01 left in first half at Falcon Stadium.


  • Beautiful day in San Diego for SDSU-Air Force

    Sat, November 10, 2012 by David Ramsey with 43 comments

    I know; it’s almost always beautiful in San Diego. But forecast had been for rainy day.

    The Falcons are 71/2 point underdogs, but this Air Force team plays at its best when the odds are against it.

    SDSU is on a five-game winning streak, but barely defeated Nevada and Boise State. There’s reason for the Falcons to be optimistic.

    And reason for the Falcons to be worried. SDSU clobbered Army, 42-7, earlier this season while stifling the Black Knights rushing attack.



  • What does Air Force’s loss to Army say about Mountain West?

    Mon, November 5, 2012 by David Ramsey with 23 comments

    The Falcons are 4-1 against Mountain West opponents.

    And they’re 0-2 against Navy and Army.

    The Black Knights pulverized the Falcons, 41-21, on Saturday.

    What do the defeats to Navy and Army say about the strength of the Mountain West?

    This is – and I think this is obvious – a down year for the conference. There’s not a team in the national top 25.

    How weak is the conference this season?

    Let me know what you think.


  • What was wrong with the Falcons today?

    Sat, November 3, 2012 by David Ramsey with 57 comments

    Was this the worst performance of the Troy Calhoun era?

    (I’d say yes.)

    Army played a superb game, but Falcons looked confused.
