    Updated: Mon, Oct 13, 2014

    Air Force scored 13 points on its football trip to Wyoming. Since then, Wyoming has lost three of four games with the lone win coming over Florida Atlantic. In the Cowboys three losses, they've surrendered 142 points, or just over 47 per game. Remember, Air Force stumbled to only...

  • Ramsey: 'Ugly' win by Broncos? No

    Updated: Mon, Oct 13, 2014

    Already hearing from Broncos fans who are calling Sunday's win over the Jets "ugly." I don't agree. A 14-point road victory over an opponent that played with obvious hunger is not ugly. The Jets played well, especially on defense. The Broncos played better. The Peyton Manning era...

  • Ramsey: Ronnie Hillman's return to respectability

    Updated: Mon, Oct 13, 2014

    Ronnie Hillman is not the second coming of Terrell Davis. Or Floyd Little. Or Clinton Portis. But he is a legit NFL running back. I've said this ever since Hillman was drafted, and I've endured light-hearted persecution as a result of my support. To explain: I watched Hillman rip the...

  • Ramsey: Haviland's sunny CC forecast remains intact, for now

    Updated: Fri, Oct 10, 2014

    Mike Haviland has shown genius and boldness in selling his Colorado College team. We watched a horror hockey show in 2013-2014, but Haviland found the courage to watch footage of every second of the Tigers epic collapse. He found reason for hope in the horror. He saw 17 "winnable"...

  • Ramsey: Coach's son revives Air Force football

    Updated: Tue, Oct 7, 2014

    The play diagram showed imagination, especially coming from a third-grade mind. As Preston Pearson, football coach, watched 8-year-old Kale plot offensive strategy on a chalkboard, he was impressed. Sure, Kale mimicked his father, but there was promise in the imitation. This play...

  • Ramsey: Broncos' Demaryius no longer a Doubting Thomas

    Updated: Mon, Oct 6, 2014

    DENVER - Let me tell you why Demaryius Thomas kept dropping passes. When Thomas first allowed an accurately thrown ball to slip through his fingers this season, he struggled to return to the huddle. A draining thought invaded his mind and refused to depart. "I let down Peyton."...

  • Ramsey: How did Peyton Manning tackle Calais Campbell?

    Updated: Mon, Oct 6, 2014

    Answer: Not very well. The biggest mystery of the Broncos 41-20 win over the Cardinals is why Campbell went down after being barely grazed by Manning. Campbell was rampaging toward the end zone with a second-quarter interception. Manning tackled Campbell, even though No. 18 failed...

  • Ramsey: Mueh disagrees with ejection call against Navy

    Updated: Sun, Oct 5, 2014

    Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh disagreed with officials’ decision to eject defensive back Justin DeCoud in the second quarter. DeCoud was penalized  for targeting Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds.  “I still believe it was a clean hit,” Mueh said. “He’s a great young...

  • Navy football coach shows class after Air Force defeat

    Updated: Sun, Oct 5, 2014

    Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo was gracious in defeat, giving credit to the Falcons. “Air Force beat us,” he said repeatedly. But he did wonder how the game would have ended if Nick Sloan had made a 38-yard field goal to end the first half and if quarterback Keenan Reynolds had hit an open...
