AIR FORCE RUMORS & GOSSIP
Packages From Home Founder Kathleen Lewis presents a group of airmen from Luke Air Force Base with tickets to this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race on behalf of Crown Royal.
Imagine seeing your name all over one of the country’s largest sports venues, and having an event officially renamed in your honor. For the eighth year, Crown Royal will make that dream a reality,...
Two teams, the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Air Force Falcons, will matchup
for the second time this season. Nevada won the first matchup in Reno
69-56 in OT, so the struggling Falcons will seek revenge.
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...
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...
Titles and responsibilities received a thorough makeover as Air Force released its new coaching roster in advance of the beginning of spring practice.
Mike Thiessen will take over as the sole offensive coordinator - a position he split with three others last year - and Steve Russ will be the defensive coordinator.
The major position shifts include Matt Weikert from defensive line...
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....
The Air Force Falcons could have used a little more of Tre' Coggins against No. 5 San Diego State on Saturday night.
Coggins was held to nine points, nearly seven below his average, as the Aztecs beat the Falcons 64-56.
Coggins had scored 29 points in a home loss to SDSU on Jan. 13.
''They were really on him,'' Air Force coach Dave Pilipovich said. ''...

Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun has added new assistants Ron Vanderlinden and Tim Cross to his staff.
Titles and coaching assignments haven't been determined.
Vanderlinden joins the Falcons after 13 years at Penn State, where he coached linebackers, and Cross joins Air Force after spending the last three years as strength and conditioning coach at Texas. Before that,...

Alec Wirtjes has spent plenty of time studying the Air Force Falcons offense. And that was before he decided to play for them.
On Friday, Wirtjes told The Gazette he would be signing a letter of intent to play with Air Force on Wednesday, national signing day.
"I live right across the street (from the academy)," Wirtjes said. "Since I moved here in seventh grade...
Seahawks cheerleader Alicia Quaco is much more than a pretty face on the sidelines. The "Sea Gal" is also an Air Force first lieutenant.
The Air Force Academy defended its use of confidential informants after a former football and soccer player said he was expelled because of misconduct linked to providing information.
The academy said informants provide vital information about criminal activity, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported this week. They are instructed to deceive classmates, professors and commanders...
It costs $230,000 to put on an Air Force-Navy football game these days. What with the government being shut down and all, that was going to be hard to come by.
Fortunately, the United Services Automobile Association is picking up the tab.
"They're picking up the bills for everything we need," Air Force Academy Athletic Corporation CEO Derm Coll told USA Today.
After all of the fear that the government shutdown would interfere with the Navy-Air Force game this week was alleviated last night, the hype machine for the matchup is cranking back up. Several Air Force cadets have created a song, titled ‘Sink Navy’,to the tune of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’. Of course, they made a music video and put it on YouTube:
This comes less than...
The Air Force at Navy game nearly was a casualty of the government shutdown.
And maybe that also explains what happened to Air Force's spirit video this weekend in advance of the game.
You know how these things go, you and a few of your friends are really pumped for the big game and you think let's turn Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," into an awesome music video...
