  • Ramsey: Air Force basketball struggles with early questions

    College basketball games in November are tough to decipher. Are we watching a version of a team that will vastly improve as players gain confidence and a better understanding of each other? Or are we watching an early version of the truth - maybe dark, maybe bright - about a team? Air Force's basketball team is hoping it's the former. For...

  • Ramsey blog: Air Force football support weak? Fans respond to column

    Wrote a column that ran in Sunday's Gazette about the small crowd at Falcon Stadium for Air Force's frigid game against Nevada. The prime point of the column is that players compete with intensity no matter how many fans are in the stands. (In this case, there weren't many fans. Maybe 500 at the end of the game.) Fans in Seattle believe they...

  • Air Force Academy athletic official arrested in Colorado Springs prostitution sting

    A top Air Force Academy athletic official was arrested in a Colorado Springs prostitution sting, police confirmed Tuesday. Dermot J. Coll, who abruptly resigned his position as head of the academy athletic department's fundraising arm Friday, was cited for allegedly soliciting sex for cash from an undercover police officer three days earlier....

  • Air Force men's basketball team has turned to freshman at the point

    Freshman Matt Mooney has been the starting point guard for Air Force in his first two college basketball games. So life is good, right? Well, not entirely. Because the Falcons have leaned on Mooney to open the season, they have also placed increased scrutiny on him. At the end of practice, players' names are called out with the number of...

  • Rushing ready to take role as Air Force's starting tailback if Owens can't go

    Devin Rushing saw Jacobi Owens in the training room, but he didn't want to ask about the injury. He was tempted to, of course. If Owens, Air Force's 1,000-yard tailback, can't play Friday at San Diego State, Rushing will make his first career start. Still, Rushing couldn't bring himself to ask Owens about the status of his injured right foot....

  • Air Force QB Kale Pearson making most of last chance

    When Kale Pearson first realized he would have just one season to start at quarterback for Air Force, he said a flip switched in his mind. This occurred last winter when Pearson, injured in the 2013 season opener, was told he was an unlikely candidate to receive an extra semester - an accommodation granted on rare occasions to cadets who see...

  • Air Force beats Nevada in frigid overtime thriller

    In a game that saw a 83 points worth of big plays on each side, it was an offensive lineman jumping on a loose ball that made the difference. Air Force right tackle A.J. Ruechel covered up teammate Devin Rushing’s fumble in overtime, and three plays later the Falcons scored the go-ahead touchdown in a 45-38 thriller over Nevada at a frigid,...

  • Air Force notes: Injured Nevada receiver stays in Colorado Springs

    Nevada kept Hasaan Henderson in Colorado Springs for observation after a hit kept him on the ground and led to a stoppage of about 8 minutes before he was carted off on a stretcher. Henderson had movement in all limbs and was alert, but the team kept him behind to be safe. Henderson was initially stood up by cornerback Justin DeCoud after...

  • Ramsey: Air Force wins in a classic, but something big missing

    During a recent visit to Seattle, I was engulfed by Seahawks fans wearing No. 12 jerseys. You know, the 12th man. An allegedly important piece of Seattle's march to NFL supremacy. These deluded fans overrate their importance. They never made a tackle, caught a pass or scored a touchdown. They are spectators and nothing more. Air Force's...

  • Air Force hockey hands Robert Morris first loss of season

    MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Scott Holm scored 29 seconds into overtime, and Chris Truehl made a career high 44 saves, as Air Force beat 17th-ranked Robert Morris, 2-1, in an Atlantic Hockey Association game Saturday. Holm's overtime game-winner was his second of the season. Air Force improved to 3-6-2, 2-2-2 in the AHA. The Falcons ended RMU's...
