Air Force notes: Players again available to media

After a one-day ban, Air Force’s scheduling conflict was resolved and players were once again allowed to talk to the media.

Coach Troy Calhoun said that a schedule change, moving dinner at the academy back by 15 minutes, allowed the players more time to fulfill media requests.

“We had some help from the people up at the dining hall, Mitchell Hall,” Calhoun said. “We’re grateful for them.”

 

Radio agreement

Air Force agreed to a multiyear agreement with 104.3 The Fan FM radio in Denver for the station to become a radio affiliate. The station will begin carrying Air Force broadcasts starting this year, and have a weekly interview with Calhoun.

The move gives the Falcons more in-state exposure.

“The partnership with The Fan will help us reach our fans in Denver and gives us much wider distribution in our great state for Air Force football games,” athletic director Hans Mueh said in a statement.

 

Switching around

Starting tailback Wes Cobb has spent the last couple of days of practice working at fullback, but Calhoun said that is to keep Cobb sharp at fullback if he is needed there. Calhoun said other players, particularly offensive linemen, are working around at different positions to work on versatility.

“He’s got to know both spots,” said Calhoun, who added that Cobb is still primarily a tailback.
