  • Ramsey: Brothers, now opponents, brace for Pine Creek-Falcon playoff game

    Talk about complicated. On Saturday, Tim and Chaundra Toussaint will lead a group of 15 to 20 family and friends into Falcon High School's stadium, where this group will face a convoluted afternoon of high school football. Tanner, the Toussaint's 15-year-old son, starts at center for Pine Creek. Austin, the Toussaint's 17-year-old son, is...

  • 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's Calhoun says Pumphrey resembles Barry Sanders? Here we go again

    Barry Sanders is one of the top half-dozen running backs in football history. Donnel Pumphrey of San Diego State is one of the top half-dozen running backs currently laboring in college football. Is there a comparison between the two? Well, sure. You can compare Sanders to Pumphrey the same way you can compare Mount Evans to some hill in...

  • Air Force's Calhoun a semi-finalist for major coaching award

  • 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...

  • Ramsey blog: Bzdelik, failed college coach, reveals his preference for NBA

    Jeff Bzdelik recently completed an utterly disastous coaching tour at Wake Forest, which hired him - for reasons that will remain forever mysterious - after his utterly disastrous coaching tour at the University of Colorado. Bzdelik, or Buzzy, now labors as assistant coach for the Memphis Grizzlies. He was never meant to labor on a college...

  • 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...

  • Ramsey blog: Colorado College tumbles even deeper into college hockey abyss

    You don't need a fireman to tell you your house in on fire. And you don't need to be a hockey expert to realize the current edition of the Colorado College Tigers is in serious trouble. In the past seven games, all losses, the Tigers have been outscored 38-9. In the Tigers last 12 losses, dating back to last season, they've surrendered 65...

  • Ramsey blog: Rams coach Jeff Fisher knows - and fears - Peyton Manning

    Rams coach Jeff Fisher is extremely aware of the dangers Peyton Manning poses for a defense. As coach of the Titans, Fisher faced Manning's Indy Colts 19 times. Fisher lost 13 of those games, and he doesn't sound optimistic about Sunday's game in St. Louis. Fisher has tried everything to stop Manning. Nothing worked. "It’s like playing a...

  • Ramsey blog: What about Josh Kroenke's role in Nuggets collapse/surrender?

    Brian Shaw is currently suffering through comparisons to Josh McDaniels. The NBA coach who seemed most likely to succeed is overseeing a Nuggets disaster. But what about Nuggets president Josh Kroenke? He's the main reason the Nuggets have fallen, once again, into the NBA basement. Kroenke fired George Karl, who won 50 games every season...
