The Mountain West Conference is filled with high-quality football. Two members of MWC, Air Force and San Diego State, meet on Thursday night to pour in a few gallons of bad football. The MWC appreciates the gestureand cringes at the thought of these 2 teams playing like theyve played all year long! But; a winner we must find between these 2 schools so Lets get busy!
Air Force is 11th in the nation in rushing. They cant pass the ball so every single possession is run, run, and run some more. The only good things in the air for Air Force is a Rocky Mountain High. It is also the reason the Falcons are 1-5. You would think a college created for dominance through the air would developsometimean offense that suggests domination through the air? Perhaps their Air Forces domination is defense through the air? Nope! Air Force stands 99th in passing defense and 120th in points allowed! Rushing defense? Nope! Air Force is 111th in rushing defense. So, lets see what we have: Cant throw the ball; Cant stop others from throwing the ball; Cant stop others from rushing the ball; Cant outscore anyone (91st in points allowed)hmmm? Maybe, just maybe, Air Force is overrated? Nope! Air Force is right where they should be1-5!
Not to be outdone, San Diego State has tried desperately to become the worst passing defense known to man. Although the top prize for that has been secure (through week 7) by Texas State, the Aztecs are charging to the rear of the pass defense polls sitting tied at 116th but in reach of the against the pass Lampshade! An unnamed defensive coach put it best, We suck stopping the pass but we dont suck enoughHey! Have you seen our Red Zone numbers? San Diego is dead last in Red Zone defense at 118th (WOOHOO! Go State!)8 full spots below mighty Air Force at 110! Two teams in the same conference with 2 identical defensesthey both vow to be, at the end of the season, the worst defenses in college football! This weekend is Wear your yellow and kelly green striped wristbands, towels, penalty flags, sucks, and that cute little ribbon as we honor and support White Blood Cell Awareness Thursday in support of the bodys greatest defense against disease; White Blood Cells!

Air Force is 11th in the nation in rushing yards. But thats like being first in the nation in eating cold pizza for breakfast when you dont have a fridge! Air Force should be number 1 in rushing anything inside the Van Allen Radiation Belt because the Falcons are so terribly inept at throwing the ball! San Diego State is 85th in the nation in rushing the ball and a Not so bad 45th in the nation in passing! The phrase balanced attack seems to characterize the Aztecs offense but to be more precise; SDSU is less balanced attack and much more okay, lets trying running it nowokay, that didnt work, lets try throwin it nowokay, lets do the running thing again! Air Force does do 1 thing pretty good; they are 3th in the nation in penalties!! The problem isPenalties is upside-down world as the vast majority of the really good teams like Oregon, UCLA, Louisville, Florida, Baylor, and Texas A&M sit near or right at last in the nation! Nice guys and nice Flyboyz finish last. I believe Air Force has wayyy too many gentlemen on their teamwhich is very weird? Shooting down fighter jets, dropping bombs, and being in-charge of intercontinental ballistic missiles intuitively seems better suited to the violent rather than gentlemen! We need some straight-up Bangers and Ballers on that Falcon team showing them the meaning of Cap that Kat!! Interesting dichotomy
San Diego State is the clear and present favorite for this Thursdays encounter. At General Tsaos No MSG Falcon Stadium (satire: it seems everything is for sale for a 2-bit hustler with Bank!) 55,000 or so seats should be filled watching the Aztecs control the air corridor and imposing their will over the Air Force (pssst, stub hub stills has 45,000 or so tickets available [joke]). Air Forces only chance is if the San Diego defensive coaching staff lusts for the prestige of being the Lampshade Defense that Texas State currently has possession of. The Falcons will try hardALWAYS!…but this is really a No Contest.
Tims Pick to Cover the Point Spread: San Diego State Aztecs -4 (HEAVY!)
