During his press conference at the Mountain West Conference's football media day on Tuesday, Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun acknowledged that he and his staff have a lot of work ahead of them. The Falcons, who were picked to finish sixth in the MWC by media members, return a total of five starters. They're also limited to just 23 preseason practices.
