Air Force Falcons head coach Troy Calhoun is preparing for the 2011 Military Bowl and apparently on his to-do list was to purchase some tickets for the bowl game. Calhoun who is a graduate of the Air Force Academy bought 200 tickets to give out to Cadets so that they can attend this game in Washington D.C.

A very nice gesture from Calhoun to allow some Cadets who may not have been able to go to the game make the trip. This goodwill toward his alma mater is probably why Calhoun is not likely to leave Air Force for any other head coaching job.

Air Force takes on the Toledo Rockets in the 2011 Military Bowl which is being played in Washington D.C. on Dec. 28 with a 4:30 p.m. ET kick and will be shown on ESPN.
