Colorado State and Air Force have long held a bitter MWC rivalry, and it came to a head early in the second half today in Colorado Springs as a loose ball led to a headlock, spine punch, three technical fouls, and an ejection. »
Asher Clark remains the second leading rusher in the history of the Air Force Academy. He was kicked out of school in 2012, less than a week before he was to graduate, on charges of smoking synthetic marijuana. How the academy nailed Clark, and several other athletes on charges ranging from drug use to sexual assault,… »
The first government shutdown in 17 years is the result of Congress failing to pass a budget; without it, the government doesn't have the authority to spend money on anything but "essential" services. Sports are apparently not among them—the service academies have suspended all sporting events effective today. »
"Popo" played four years of basketball at the Air Force Academy, where in 1970 he earned a bachelor's degree in Soviet studies. But doesn't this tell us so much more about where the young cadet was headed in life? It's basically a droll outline for every one of his eventual encounters with sideline reporters. »
Dave Christensen was suspended for a week and fined after this meltdown following Wyoming's loss to Air Force, in which he accused his counterpart of having the Falcons quarterback fake an injury to stop the clock. Our favorite quote, very to-the-point, was Christensen's accusatory "You have no fuckin' ethics, Troy." »
Dave Christensen's punishment was handed down yesterday for this, and it's rather steep: a one-game suspension and a $50,000 fine. The decision was made by the school's athletic director with the full support of the university president, according to a statement the AD issued that said some things about "values" and… »
Last Saturday, Wyoming lost a conference game to Air Force by a score of 28-27. It was a tough loss for the Cowboys, as they squandered a 10-point halftime lead. After the game, Wyoming's head coach, Dave Christensen, was very angry, and he unleashed an expletive-filled rant on his counterpart, Troy Calhoun.… »
According to the Cadet Third Class (that's Air Force for 'sophomore'!) who sent this along, a big wank-y banner has been hung in the Air Force Academy's dining hall ahead of tomorrow's big Army game. Is this the type of young men we want waging our wars in the future? Deadspin says: god yes. »
With three years remaining on his contract, Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry just announced that he won't be returning as coach of the Falcons. He has been coaching the team for 23 years and even won national coach of the year honors in 1985. Recently, he had fallen on hard times and many had accused him of watching… »

1. Antoine Hood Is Cooler Than You. Not only was the Falcons' starting guard voted to the 2005-2006 Mountain West all-conference first team by leading Air Force in scoring at 14.8 points per game and assists with 78, but he will always be more popular then you. He currently has 1,031 friends at the United States Air… »
Fascinating column on the addictive, compelling site Black Athlete Sports Network comparing the situation involving Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry's comments on black athletes and the Astros' dubious distinction of being the first team since the 1956 Yankees to make the World Series without a single black player. The… »
OK, so we've been watching the video of Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry's comments about African-American players, specifically that ""they run extremely well." First off, DeBerry — who we have a sneaking suspicion would be getting a bit more leeway if his team hadn't lost five games already this season — is clearly… »
