Dave Christiansen summed him up perfectly:

Look at me, Mr. Feckin' Howdy Doody! You have no feckin' ethics, Troy! No feckin' integrity! Whooooooo!

I read an article that said they don't have a defensive coordinator. It's not that they're refusing to divulge a hire, it's that they didn't make a hire. That's even more strange in my opinion.

It lacks integrity in my opinion. You work at a public institution (more importantly a military academy) but can't just be honest and forthcoming as to whether the team has hired a defensive coordinator, and, if so, who is it. I get that the assistants at Air Force are paid with private funds but just be honest and stop playing hide the ball. I believe he acts like a clown and it reflects poorly on Air Force...just the same as I thought Christensen conducted himself poorly and it reflected poorly on Wyoming.

Agreed, class act and had some very successful teams with less-than-ideal talent.

I've talked with former AFAplayers (current AF officers) that played in that infamous Howdy Doody game. Troy did have his qb fake the injury.

Well, class act until the last few years. Got a little racist towards the end.
On Tuesday, in discussing last weekend's 48-10 loss to TCU,
DeBerry said it was clear TCU "had a lot more Afro-American
players than we did and they ran a lot faster than we did."

"It just seems to me to be that way," he said. "Afro-American
kids can run very well. That doesn't mean that Caucasian kids and
other descents can't run, but it's very obvious to me that they run
extremely well."

LOL Kinda reminds me of the comments made by Jimmy "The Greek" that got him fired by CBS in the late '80s.

Oh for sure. Howdy Doody is a clown. That rant was embarrassing, but at the same time freaking hilarious. Very memorable, to say the least

That's what I'm leaning towards. Calhoun just wants to save face because he screwed up. He probably thought he had a deal in place with a particular coach that fell through and now they are scrambling. You know kinda like how it was guaranteed we were getting some QB transfer ;)
I'm good for 3!

Of course he did. That was evident to everyone in the stands when he (Howdy Doody) and all the other coaches were signaling for the QB to kneel down as the clock was running. Not sure Dickface's reaction at the end was totally warranted, but I understand there was a lot of talk prior to what was captured.

I kind of wished they (Howdy Doody & Dickface) would have thrown down. That would have been spectacular, and I am somewhat certain Dickface would have won.
Dear Karma,

I have a list of people you missed...

It really bugged me how the media gave Calhoun a pass on that because of DC's outburst. I don't recall him ever being asked directly by anyone if he had his qb fake it, which would've at least forced him to lie and made him look like an asshole. Not to mention breaking whatever their code is at AF. If I recall though, the game wasn't televised so that didn't help.

And like many I still find the rant as hilarious as the day it happened. If you're having a bad day, find the remix version where the guy sings everything DC said real slow and high pitched...if you're not laughing after that you need to find your sense of humor.

Anyone watching the game, including the people sitting around me in real time, could see it was an obvious faked injury. Changed the course of that game.

Troy Calhoun is trash. It did change the course of the game, and the next year he sat on the rules committee and changed/ or tried to change the rules for a runoff on injuries because he was exposed. It’s getting up there in seasons ago but a player (Wade Betschart maybe? A FB/TE/HB in the Glenn years?) was cut up by Air Force helmets ( ie sharpened clips, certs, or something). Glenn turned it in to the NCAA. He’s a dirty coach.
