AF-FST

Post by bluegrouse » October 12th, 2019, 7:02 pm

Good game. Surprisingly tiny crowd. 60 degrees and a good team. Empty stadium.

I still have no idea if we’ll be able to beat either of these teams. They should be fun games, though

AF at AF will be a very tough game.

FSU at FSU will be a very tough game.

So, I think Fresno might not be good.

May be true but I do think AF is better than they have been.

Fresno looked pretty good in the first half. They had 466 yards in the half.

Very impressive half by AF tonight. FSU just threw in the towel. Total domination.

11+ minute drive to end the game. Something like 25 minutes to 5 minutes TOP 2nd half. Crazy.

That sounds about right YoungBlood. I like our chances at Fresno much more than at the Academy. Interesting how the league is playing out this season. Wyoming mostly played quite well against the Aztecs.

After the game, Calhoun said he doesn't think air Force is a good fit in the Mountain West conference.

Weird. I don’t think Calhoun is a good “FIT” for Air Force.

I’m actually shocked he feels like that. Maybe he can go independent like army and navy. It actually works for their model.

Of all the coaches in the MWC he's the one that has consistently been an A$$ every time I hear him open his mouth.

I appreciate the Air Force Academy and all that they do for our country that being said Coach H

Calhoun is an outright prick. He is the coach that I despise most in the conference. I hope the Aggies go and lay the wood on those guys but it will be a tough game cuz they do have a good team this year.

Air Force is a name institution and a decent draw where ever they travel. The reality is that schools in the west are not just down the highway an hour or so. Flying to the next contest is a given for them unless CSU and and an OOC game with Colorado are involved.

Taking the emotion and knee jerk reaction away from his comments, I just can't see where the AFA would ever plant their flag.

He has something of a point:

11 of the 12 MWC schools are state sponsored.
AFA: Federal

5 of the 12 MWC schools are land grant universities.
AFA: Nope

10 of the 12 MWC schools are over 100 years old. Six are over 120 years old.
AFA: 65 years old, barely qualifies for Social Security.

11 of the 12 MWC schools draw the vast majority of their students from the western US, if not from their own state.
AFA: Nope.

Having said that, I think the Academy is a great institution, and a huge asset to the conference. Because of the inherent limitations, they will almost never compete for a conference championship in the revenue sports, but they are always competitive in EVERY sport.

Calhoun is a massive jerk. Dirtiest, whiniest coach in the conference.

We always talk about Hawaii or SJSU leaving the conference, but maybe AFA would be the one to walk away.

Other than independent, where would they fit.

Umm.. Where does he think they fit?? If he is annoyed with travel, what conference would be better? If he is thinking they should be P5, so does every upper-tier G5, get in line.

Do head coaches even get a say in what conference they belong to?

I'm fine with Calhoun finding a better gig somewhere else. He isn't a good fit in the conference. He is the whiniest coach of them all (he even beat out Caragher before he was fired). He is always pulling lame crap too. I remember last year when his players would walk off the field to slow down our offense.

i have no remorse for team when it comes to scheduling and travel. In 2014 the aggies played at Hawaii on a Saturday and then followed that up by playing at WYO the following Friday. They basically gave us 4 days in between. Tell that is not taking the shaft in terms of scheduling. The team went out and won both of those games. AF's travel is not back to back so he can't stop his dam whining.
