Could Air Force Leave The Mountain West?
Troy Calhoun wonders Mountain West viability for the Falcons?
Air Force as an independent?
Air Force is having a nice bounceback season as they are sitting at 4-2 after its 43-24 win over Fresno State.
The Falcons are looking like they will back in the postseason after missing last year, but head coach Troy Calhoun had some interesting comments about the future of the Falcons being in the Mountain West.
“We are in a league where to be blunt, I don’t know if it’s the route maybe we should go,” Calhoun said in his post-game press conference. “Yet for our guys, the way they played tonight and the preparation and just the focus all week long was pretty strong, which is a really strong indicator of the quality of the leadership that we have.”
This comment is not the first time that Calhoun has said that maybe the Mountain West and Falcons are not a good fit.
“I just don’t know if it’s really a match. I don’t know if it’s best. I don’t know if… Now, we are. And we’re lucky to be, just the quality of the schools of the other member institutions that are a part of it.”
