  • Ramsey: Four reasons why Air Force can conquer CSU

    The Falcons believe, despite a mountain of contradictory evidence, they can defeat Colorado State. Yes, the Rams just dropped 58 points on New Mexico. And, yes, these Rams have won 10 of 11. Air Force players fail to care. They cling to a steely belief in their ability to bend reality. I don't share their faith, but the Falcons have been...

  • Ramsey blog: Join me in rooting against Valor Christian

    Valor Christian's football team has won five straight state titles, starting at 3A and moving up to 5A. The Eagles are 26-0 in playoff games.

Fans were upset by the line's performance in a bumbling 22-7 loss to the Rams. After the Broncos offense scored 39 points, and rescued the team's struggling offense, Montgomery revealed the...

  • Ramsey: Broncos' C.J. Anderson, recently Mr. Anonymous, bulldozes Dolphins

    DENVER - The end zone beckoned, and C.J. Anderson wanted to answer the call. After dancing into the open field, he could see the destination where every running back yearns to roam. "Oh, it was very tempting," Anderson said. "In my head I was saying, 'Go, go, go.'" But in the back of his mind, he heard stern, sensible words spoken in the...

  • Ramsey: It appears the Falcons have finally caught Tigers

    The horn sounded, and Air Force fans rose in unison at Cadet Ice Arena for a brief, loud moment of celebration. The Falcons had accomplished what once would have been unthinkable. They had thumped Colorado College, 3-1. Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh stood on the edge of the ice when the game ended. He remembers the old days, when CC...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...
