"Go during your thirteen year now as the head coach at the airforce academy you been denied bowl games he won the commander in chief's trophy four times your recruiting practices are unique in college football because of the realities of being a service academy there are no quick fixes what is the difference for a really good Air Force team in terms of roster make up is it about veteran upper classmen players. I I wish I had that formula. and I have some clients you know and yet you know first and foremost we're going to respect the standard to the United States Air Force Academy enough that's you know the test scores the GPA the conduct its involved as a young person while you're here at the academy and then certainly the the way that you're going to serve if you are able to earn a degree from this school so you know we would be in mourning else just the raw realities we try to make sure that very very clear with a young person and even their parents or their family to distant terms and how hard it is here I mean academically to take eighteen or twenty one semester hours the day you walk in the door to begin basic training that's five and a half weeks were the day yeah when you do arrive were cut all your offer and take your phone and and away we go from that point and in so he and then inevitably hi I'm in all. I really am in terms of. the daily schedule for a student here at the Air Force Academy cadet I should say here at the airforce academy and yet somehow they're still able to to be involved in sports and in a in a really competitive league to step towards astounding. part of the job of knowing what your players are doing in service to the country upon graduation what is that part of the job mean to you in terms of preparing young men and shaping them in the ways that football does well made out also you know that's probably the one thing that is kind of me here you sat down with you look in the eye balls at Kim Jefferson at Woodward academy when he's in high school and lo and behold here years one of the top the one pilots in in the Air Force right now or you know you watch Brady a mac made twenty three tackles and two thousand eleven back at navy in an overtime win and now he's one of the best fighter pilots in all the for Sir tier two and two thousand nine rushes for over a thousand yards and has been just tremendous as an F. sixteen pilot or Travis decker was an outstanding tidy and it the Packer said a look you can play for sad after going through some of those initial many camps and yet he decides to go to Georgetown and is now a doctor in the Air Force that. that's not all bad now that's really cool stuff are a coach seven wins now this season for the mountain west conference against power five opponents after Air Force beat see you from what you have seen so far and preparing for Boise state what is stood out to you about this mountain west conference so far in twenty nineteen you know I really haven't had a chance to see LOC two of them the the one this past week this past Saturday in in the other one obviously the Florida state Boise state game those two we have viewed and viewed pretty extensively. you know he it takes some of the other some small things that kind of have to fall in place a little bit I think you better have very veteran teams because those are probably going to be games are going to be close it's rare that you see you know fifteen or twenty point land so you got to have some guys that have been out there and play a lot of football just situationally that have great awareness and but but it it is it you know it's a and yet you look talent wise you know you look here in recent years she had a good number first rounder high level draft picks you know you think back just fifteen months ago you know the linebacker that goes to balance with the nineteenth pick and the the quarterback that goes to buffalo like with the six pack and in that very same drafters tailback that goes to Seattle like with the twenty seventh. so I mean great great town this lake in a and I think morning else the investment that's made by a handful of schools in the sport of football I think it's obvious at Colorado state that's the case Boise most certainly Utah state and then just the access the talent that's there when it comes to Fresno and seen the state tale non conference is been successful let's get into conference play big one of the Mountain Division Friday night Air Force at Boise state the falcons to win as they get ready to take on number twenty Boise state head coach Troy Calhoun coach congratulations on the early success best of luck this week"
