  • Ramsey: UCCS supporting cast carries Mountain Lions to RMAC semis

    UCCS guard Alex Koehler stands 6-foot-1, maybe, but he showed the courage to invade the land of giants. He emerged triumphant, rising above Colorado Mesa's Ryan Stephan for a crucial tip in the lane with eight minutes remaining in the second half. Koehler and the Mountain Lions battled to an 82-71 victory over Mesa in a Rocky Mountain Athletic...

  • Ramsey blog: Can Nuggets find a way to dump Josh Kroenke?

    The Nuggets liberated Brian Shaw today in much the same way the Rockies recently liberated general manager Dan O'Dowd. Both men have arrived at better, saner destinations in their lives. Nuggets fans remain in a bad destination, largely because Josh Kroenke is running the franchise. Josh, as you probably know, enjoys the strongest kind of...

  • Ramsey blog: CC Tigers must prove improvement with victories

    Colorado College's hockey team has a strong chance to improve next season under the direction of coach Mike Haviland, who is struggling to transform the program. The Tigers did not improve this season. They endured one of the worst seasons in the school's history last season. They have remained at essentially the same level this season....

  • Ramsey blog: Manning's 2015 contract not about yesterday. It's about right now

    Peyton Manning is scheduled to earn $21.5 million (with bonuses included) in 2015. Some would argue it's ridiculous for the Broncos to ask Manning to take a pay cut. (This is, by the way, not one of those straw man arguments. I've heard these someones defend Manning's huge 2015 payday.) Look at all Manning has done for the Broncos, these...

  • Ramsey blog: BYU went independent, became irrelevant

    BYU considers itself the western equivalent of Notre Dame. Unfortunately for BYU, nobody else considers the school the western equivalent of Notre Dame. When the Cougars declared independence from the Mountain West, they didn't realize they were also making another declaration: It was their declaration of irrevelevance. Now, the Cougars...

  • Ramsey: Lewis-Palmer's Charlie Hovasse conquers opponents with an exotic knee

    As Charlie Hovasse kneeled at the scorer's table, he realized he had triumphed. He had not yet entered the game Feb. 4 against Vista Ridge. He had yet to score a point, grab a rebound or help his Lewis-Palmer Rangers to a victory this season. He still knew. "That was the happiest moment," Hovasse says. "I thought about the challenge that I...

  • Ramsey blog: Nuggets are down, but that's kind of normal

    I've been watching the Denver Nuggets play in downtown Denver, or on the edge of downtown Denver, since 1971. We go back a long way. When I first started watching the Nuggets, they weren't the Nuggets. They were called the Rockets and played with a red, white and blue ball in the defunct American Basketball Association. The Nuggets are in a...

  • Ramsey: Nuggets should take caring lessons from Tom Brady

    DENVER - A long time ago, before Tom Brady became Tom Brady, he was standing in a long line with his parents at Angelo's, a mega-popular restaurant in Ann Arbor, Mich. Workers at Angelo's made sure the best Michigan athletes didn't wait in line. Those workers walked right past Brady, who never quite became a star for the Wolverines. The snub...

  • Ramsey: Fallen CC must emulate steady, mighty DU Pioneers

    Over in a corner of the ice at The Broadmoor World Arena, a gang of Pioneers were hugging and shouting and celebrating yet another goal. Everyone else in the building was mute, stunned by the realization the Gold Pan would soon be returning to Denver. Yes, the Evil Empire of the North had triumphed. For two periods, Colorado College showed...

  • Ramsey: Colorado College Tigers face tough battle to retain their Gold Pan

    A year ago, a late light brightened Colorado College's historically awful season. The Tigers struggled to do anything right during 2013-2014, and a mountain of failure cost Scott Owens his job. But the Tigers did one big thing right. They conquered The Evil Empire of the North. Yes, the Tigers triumphed over Denver and won the Gold Pan,...
