  • Ramsey: Colorado College's Mike Haviland needs to rule backyard first

    Spend a few minutes with new Colorado College hockey coach Mike Haviland, and you'll hear him talk repeatedly about a fresh start for his Tigers. CC will play with more vigor and more focus. They no longer will take nights off. "We have a whole new culture here," he announced a few seconds before saying "the culture has changed." As Haviland...

  • Ramsey: Too bad Phelps failed to learn from mistake

    Michael Phelps always says the right thing when he gets in trouble. Let's hope he actually starts doing the right thing. In 2004, he promised to "take responsibility" for his actions after being busted for DUI in Maryland. In 2008, he promised he would not repeat his "regrettable" behavior after a photograph was published of him smoking...

  • Ramsey: Air Force defense silences critics, for now

    Last week, I wondered if Air Force's defense would finally stand up after spending all of last season in a state of extreme generosity. The Falcons delivered a resounding answer: Yes. Air Force's defensive performance in the first three quarters against Boise State was magnificent, and even the fourht quarter, when the Broncos rallied to...

  • 5 biggest wins during the Troy Calhoun era at Air Force

    Air Force Academy head football coach Troy Calhoun is 52-42 overall after taking over the Falcons' program in 2007. Here are his five biggest wins: 1. Air Force 20, Utah 12 – Sept.8, 2007 In Calhoun’s second game as Air Force coach, the Falcons defeated the Utes in a defensive battle in Salt Lake City. 2. Air Force 20, TCU 17 (OT) – Sept....

  • Ramsey: Huge win lifts coach Troy Calhoun and his Falcons

    This Air Force football team has been shouting since August. They said they were an entirely different group of Falcons. They had waved farewell to the humiliations of 2013. They were ready for a Mountain West revenge tour. Almost nobody listened to the Falcons. Even fewer believed them. Until Saturday evening. An embattled coach and his...

  • Ramsey: Pine Creek lets rest of 4A know it means business

    Living at the top of Colorado 4A football has only added to Pine Creek's hunger. The unbeaten Eagles marched into a beyond-packed Vista Ridge stadium Friday night to face the also-unbeaten Wolves. It had all the ingredients for a dramatic Friday night football game. It wasn't even close. Pine Creek rolled to a 41-7 victory, cementing its...

  • Ramsey: Air Force's defensive woes are no joke

    He wears a cadet uniform to a press conference. He talks about recruiting bears and bucks to serve on the scout team. He wonders if his defensive backs realize they are wearing football shoes instead of combat boots. Troy Calhoun, suddenly the man of laughs, is performing a masterful job of deflecting attention away from the question that...

  • Ramsey: 'The Drive' vanquished the Cleveland Browns and lifted John Elway

    EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in a weeklong series covering six of the most memorable moments in Denver Broncos history. On a cold day in Cleveland, a group of 11 men gathered on the edge of Lake Erie and vowed to arrive at a distant goal. They embarked on a march that will live as long as men and women talk about football. But at first...

  • BRONCOS MEMORIES - Ramsey: Denver trashed powerful, scary Raiders

    Let's take a trip to the past, back to a vastly different time. Disco and polyester ruled the land. A gallon of gas cost 62 cents. The Soviet Union remained intact. Elvis Presley died. Three Brady sisters in California welcomed a baby brother into their lives. His name was Tom. In this far-away time and place, the Oakland Raiders prowled...

  • Ramsey: Broncos misery began to end when Little flew to Colorado

    As the sun rose over the Colorado plains on March 14, 1967, the Broncos ranked as The Front Range's prime public embarrassment. If you're trying to imagine how far the Broncos had tumbled, just think of the present state of the Colorado Rockies. The Broncos had won 12 of their previous 56 games. They had briefly worn vertical striped socks...
