Kamryn Williams gives interviews with the same confidence in which he plays basketball for Air Force, rarely hesitating the slightest bit. But he gave a long pause after being asked how the Falcons, missing their point guard, matched their lowest turnover margin of the conference season.

Air Force Falcons season preview

It was a rough year for head coach Troy Calhoun and his Air Force squad in 2013. The Falcons failed to win a Mountain West conference game and Calhoun, the first graduate to become head coach, had the lowest offense production in seven seasons as head coach (24.7 points per game), and the defense also gave up the most points per game (40.0) since Calhoun took over in 2007.

Proposed rule change has landed Air Force coach Calhoun in national spotlight

Two years ago, when Troy Calhoun took over as chair of the college football rules committee, his wife, Amanda, had one question for him - why would you do that? On Tuesday, as Calhoun faced national media over what has become a firestorm of controversy over the "10-second rule" that his committee has proposed, it was easy to tell he wished he had listened to his wife.

DeLovell Earls playing starter's minutes in a reserve role

DeLovell Earls made it clear when he returned from a leg injury that he desperately wanted to return to the starting spot he earned last season. That hasn't happened, but unlike last year Earls is playing starters' minutes. In two road games this past week, the junior co-captain showed his value now that he seems fully healthy and fully accepting of his role as the sixth man. ...

Air Force football closes the book on last season as spring practice begins

Events that occurred between Aug. 31 and Nov. 30 were a taboo subject as Air Force began spring football practice on Wednesday. "It's 2014," safety Christian Spears said. "We don't have much to say about last year." The Falcons' 2-10 season was one in which almost all that can go wrong, did go wrong. A young roster was slow to develop, the team cycled through four quarterbacks...

Air Force Falcons begin spring football practice with strength in mind

It's not surprising that strength is the first thing Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun is asking for in the process of leaving behind the worst record in the academy's 57-year history. The Falcons finished 2-10 overall (0-7 Mountain West) last fall and began spring practice Wednesday trying to begin the road back to winning seasons. "We will be a stronger team physically,"...
