  • Ramsey: Losing separated Scott Owens from Colorado College

    Scott Owens walked into the Colorado College student center, and a party started. CC students waved, took turns shaking his hand and shouted encouraging words. He reigned as The King of Campus. This was nine years ago, a few days before Owens led his team to his only journey to The Frozen Four. Today, Owens remains the same expert...

  • Ramsey: 36 straight strikes give Colorado Springs man rare 900 series

    When the message arrived at The Gazette newsroom announcing bowler Amos Gordon had rolled a 900 series at Fort Carson's Thunder Alley, skepticism was abundant. I expected the next call to inform us a local slow-pitch softball hitter had launched an 857-foot home run. "I'm very surprised, too," Gordon told me Monday night. "I was just trying...

  • Ramsey: Sky Sox, and Rockies, must focus on winning today

    Glenallen Hill spoke radical words for a minor league baseball manager. "Winning," he said, "is extremely important." Yes, you heard him right. Hill, leader of the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, believes winning is a big deal, a top priority. Minor league baseball is a complicated creature. Nobody wants to remain where they are, and everyone...

  • Ramsey: Colorado College is prime spot for new hockey coach

    Colorado College's hockey program is in shambles after winning seven of 37 games, but there's reason for hope. Leading the Tigers is one of college hockey's choice coaching jobs. And that job is open. Scott Owens left the job vacant Saturday, when he departed after 15 seasons. He once won big at World Arena, giving CC fans strong reason to...

  • Meet the one person who IS NOT a candidate to replace Scott Owens as CC's next hockey coach

    Air Force coach Frank Serratore said he is not interested in the vacant Colorado College coaching position. “I’m going to get fired someday, but I’m going to let Air Force fire me,” Serratore said Sunday night. “I like where I’m working.” Serratore just completed his 17th season at Air Force.

  • Ramsey: College basketball's one-and-done rule is a joke

    Colorado coach Tad Boyle can't stand the "one-and-done" rule that drains college basketball, results in an inferior NBA product and robs basketball fans. "The thing that bothers me about it is that it's a farce and has nothing to do with what we're trying to do, and that's educating young people," Boyle said. "I don't know what to do about...

  • Ramsey: Pete Rose deserves a spot on the Hall of Fame ballot

    We dwell in a bizarre baseball world. Barry Bonds just completed a cameo appearance as hitting instructor for the Giants. Mark McGwire works as the full-time hitting instructor for the Dodgers. Bonds and McGwire used performance-enhancing drugs to fuel their collection of home runs. They were key players in a cheating scandal that rocked...

  • Ramsey: Former DU coach Gwozdecky strongly endorses Owens as CC leader

    George Gwozdecky once ranked among Colorado Springs' most despised invaders. For 19 years, The Double G led the University of Denver hockey team into World Arena, where Colorado College fans shouted mean, obscene words at him and, once, tossed a full glass of soda at his head. Now he's being mentioned by CC fans as a possible replacement for...

  • Ramsey: Former Air Force, CU boss Jeff Bzdelik should never have been a college coach

    Three troubling mysteries of modern America: Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone in the murder of John F. Kennedy? Why is Madonna popular? What was Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman thinking when he hired Jeff "Buzzy" Bzdelik as basketball coach in 2010? Buzzy, the former Air Force and Colorado coach, labored nearly two decades with...

  • Ramsey: God, and we, should be concerned about more than games

    Mom was stunned. She had just listened in the late 1970s to a Bible-school teacher offer parking advice. Pray as you approach a busy mall, the teacher said, and The Creator of the World will provide a choice parking space. Mom and dad often pondered how to make what was important to God important to them and their five children. It never...
