Calhoun Says Air Force Media Blackout Was About Academics

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) – Air Force football coach Troy Calhoun says he cancelled all postgame interviews after the Falcons’ tough loss at Michigan last weekend so he could get his players back to spend more time on academics.

Calhoun said his decision to make himself and his players off-limits after the Falcons’ 31-25 loss at Ann Arbor had nothing to do with anything that happened during the game.

Calhoun said he “brought a bunch of instructors on the trip” because “we have a bunch of exams and papers and projects” that are coming up. He said he also wanted his players to spend a few minutes with their families after the game before flying back to Colorado Springs.
