Rants & Raves: Air Force Edition
LARAMIE -- Tisk, tisk.
So many non-believers this week in Cowboy Nation. One gentleman even gave up on the home team the very second Air Force took its first lead of the night with nearly 10 minutes still remaining in regulation.
You'll see his Tweet in a minute, which he later retracted before swallowing an entire black crow, feet first.
Empathy was the theme for some of you when this season kicked off. That moved right into anger when the Pokes laid an egg in Champaign. Since, Wyoming has rattled off three straight victories, including tonight's 17-14 upset over Front Range rival Air Force.
Don't worry, doubter. You're not alone.
UW was a 15-point underdog coming into this one. Air Force rolled over its first two opponents by a combined score of 89-27. Who could blame you?
Let's take a look at some fan reactions from Wyoming fans across the globe after this one:
David Smith (Facebook) I hope he feels better fast. Kid is special and everything that's right about college football. Cowboy tough

Murray Hill (Facebook) Yikes! I think the Falcons found their groove. That was not so good.
Matthew Blaylock (Facebook) The Cowboys have a look tonight on both sides of the ball that I have not seen in a long time. It is a good thing and finally nice to see!!
