Tengan steps down

June 27th, 2008
By

 Delbert Tengan  has resigned as head coach of  Saint Louis School's fooball and basketball teams. He told his coaches last night, then made it official in a news release circulated to the media this afternoon. He will remain as a physical education coach.

It is a sad outome for Tengan,  who has been involved with Crusader athletics for 25 years. Tengan's football teams lost only two games in the last two years. For UH fans, Tengan was a friend of the program.

According to wideout Malcolm Lane, former UH cornerbacks Gerard Lewis and Myron Newberry are mulling an opportunity to play in the German Football League. Lane, who lived in Germany for several years, said the caliber of play is very good. Lane also said the demise of NFL Europa has created a market for the GFL to expand.

Here's a photo from last year's German Bowl:

Dylan Linkner has a dream.
What he needs is time to sleep.
"My day consists of waking up at 5 in the morning," said Linkner, a non-scholarship wideout. "I come over here, and lift early in the morning."
He lifts weights, then participates in conditioning drills. After that, he goes to Kapi‘olani Community College, where he is taking a 2-hour summer school class. Then it's home to Kailua to do homework or take a quick nap. He then serves as a bus worker at a Waikiki Restaurant from 4 p.m. until midnight.
"I don't get home until 1," Linkner said. "I don't fall asleep until 1:30, 2. I get right back up at 5 for the same workouts."
Is it worth it? "Of course," said Linkner, who is perpetually upbeat.
Linkner's father, Jim, is Keali‘i Reichel's sound engineer. Last week, Jim Linkner won another Hoku award.
Dylan Linkner wants to make it on his own. He wants to pay for his tuition. He wants to be responsible. That meant that last summer, when his teammates were working out, he was stocking shelves at Longs.
Linkner, who finished spring training as the No. 2 right wideout, set a goal of earning a football scholarship.
Yesterday afternoon, he managed to compete in unsupervised workouts. He ran hard. He made every catch.
"I'm working hard," Linkner said.
In training camp, he wants to prove "that I'm worthy, that I can get that scholarship."
But if that falls through, "I want to make sure I have money to pay for school," he said.

It's good to see that Laupepa Letuli has fully healed from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for all of spring training. He had suffered the injury while running the 40-yard dash on Cooke ... er, Ching Field. Letuli, Aaron Kia and Ray Hisatake are competing to be the No. 1 left tackle. Last year's starter, Keith AhSoon, is moving to left guard.

Shane Austin also declared himself healthy. He suffered a fracture in his right foot on the last play of the Warrior Bowl. His foot was in a cast and then a medical boot. Now he is able to practice without any medical support for his foot.

  15. WarriorMojo:

    ST, thanks very much for the update on Laupepa. I'm telling you this guy NEEDS to start for us somewhere on the O-line. He's got the feet to play tackle and the muscle to play guard.

    Pepa, please do whatever you gotta do to take care of those hammies. This is your year to set yourself up so that you get chance next year for All-WAC or All-America honors, even the Outland award. Your freshman season was cut short by that freaking Utah State cheap shot. Your sophomore season didn't get off the ground because you pulled your hamstring in fall camp. You did finish very strong in the Sugar Bowl, but then your hamstring acted up again in Spring ball.

    You've been teasing us with glimpses of your talent for two years now. Let's get it done full time this year, brother. The sky's the limit for you. Get it done.


  16. Koauka:

    Good morning ST and gangees!


  17. Ralph:

    finally, after three system restore attempts my computer is back on line. I guess it takes 'Pepa's appearance to get WM back on the blog and pumping his fists..


  18. Ralph:

    Homey, haf to do the system restores....back to Firefox 2...are there glitches with Firefox 3


  19. Ralph:

    where's everyone! not even Esme


  20. MeiLing:

    Mornin' ST! Mahalo for the great pics!

    Good luck to all of the guys in making the team & success in taking care of business on the academic end.

    Aloha Kakahiaka to the Tsaiko world! Have a great day in Hawai'i nei!

    Going to services today for a sweet woman I used to work with who didn't make it in her fight against cancer. Make memories! Make memories while you are here with your 'ohana & Tsai-kotic friends.


  21. Garret:

    I agree with WarriorMojo--a healthy Letuli would be a huge boost to the OL for the season! Thank you for the great news that his hamstring is fully healed! Best of luck to Letuli and the rest of the OL for their offseason workouts as they prepare for a really competitive Fall camp!


  22. Garret:

    Best wishes to Dylan Linkner...he's working really hard to make it on his own. It is hard for walk ons to take care of school, athletics, AND work also. Scholarship athletes are loaded with work when they just have school and athletics, but many walk-ons have to try to earn a scholarship while working too!


  23. Garret:

    bighilofan2,

    Thank you for taking care of the JUGS machine!


  24. Garret:

    The ATV accident cost that UCLA OL the season…and possibly his career. He really has hard luck with knee injuries.

    UCLA announced offensive tackle Sean Sheller will miss the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament and the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Sheller suffered the injury Friday while driving an ATV in Lake Havasu, Ariz.

    The redshirt sophomore was the projected starter at right tackle.

    Sheller (Walnut High) did not play in 2007. He suffered a tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in fall training camp of 2006.


  25. Garret:

    I wish UH had rich alumni like this Oklahoma State donor. The amazing thing is that this donation is just the 2nd or 3rd biggest donation annonced this year to Oklahoma State.

    This fall, under the impression he was selling a west end zone football suite, Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder met with alumnus Malone Mitchell.

    As Holder was giving his usual OSU sales pitch, the one where the AD gives his vision of the future and talks about the athletic facilities he plans to build, Mitchell stopped him.

    “He interrupted me and said, ‘Look, here’s what I have in mind,’” Holder recalled. “I about fell out of my chair.”

    What Mitchell and his wife, Amy, had in mind — with a few minor tweaks — came to fruition this month. The couple donated $57.2 million in stock to OSU, half of it to academics and half to the athletic department.


  26. Garret:

    It is amazing how many players have left Louisville!

    That's 21 players, scholarship players only, and doesn't count those that signed and never made it to campus. That's an entire recruiting class.


  27. FloridaTed:

    Morning, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    Just peaking in to say Aloha. Thanks to our leader the upcoming dog days of summer without sports are bareable.

    Off to work, I'm doing way too much of that lately in my old age, lol.

    Have a great day, everybody.

    If the Federal Government takes action on artificial turf, a lot of practice fields and stadiums could be in trouble. Replacing all of that turf would cost a ton of money...

    A U.S. senator from New Jersey is urging the federal government to take action on artificial turf sports fields containing lead.

    Sen. Bob Menendez sent a letter to the Consumer Product Safety Commission Thursday that urged the agency to expand its investigation into possibly hazardous lead levels in artificial turf.

    Thursday's call for action by Menendez comes a week after the federal Centers for Disease Control issued an advisory recommending that worn, frayed sports fields containing nylon fibers be tested for lead.

    A California environmental watchdog group reported this week it had found excessive amounts of lead in several brands of artificial turf. It warned some of the biggest manufacturers and sellers that it would sue unless they recall or reformulate their products.


  29. Garret:

    RGM was mentioned in this article.

    While that may have been the impetus to get started, White, a junior at Cal State Los Angeles, has quickly risen through the ranks to earn a place in the 200-meter dash at the United States Olympic Trials, which start today and run through July 6 in Eugene, Ore.

    Not bad for a guy that only took up the sport when he started college three years ago.

    "It was a chance to better myself," he said. "If they're going to pay me to go school, why not do it?"

    White spent his freshman year at Garey High School, but transferred to Rialto the following year when his family moved from Pomona to San Bernardino. He excelled in football, playing tight end on the same team with Ryan Grice-Mullen, who went on to star as a wide receiver at the University of Hawaii.


  30. Kekoa:

    Note to Coach Bulla: Lisa Strand told me last night that she is anxiously awaiting to reunite with the "Menhune Matchmaker of Manoa." She also wondered why she has been 'ono' for watrcress lately...Hmmm.

  46. djmitcho:

    Nah, da air is clean today. If there is a forest fire somewhere in the state, we usually see da effects, but nothing from dat far away. It looks like summer is finally here too.
    Upper 80's today, mid 90's tomorrow, really high 90's on sunday.


  47. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    HI HO prep.


  48. Kekoa:

    PB ~ Oline was minor concern during spring because it looked a little thin in spots. Now that da boyz are starting to focus on preparing their bodies for combat, da attitude adjustment has narrowed to lean & mean. Starting positions will mean open warfare soon.

    Think back to wen you wuz battling for a spot. Rememba how you stahted to buss okole to not just win it...but to own it! Left no doubt. :evil:

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    We have officially hit the 100 mark for the upcoming party. There are 25 more spaces available. I have also received payments from a bunch of people. I will be emailing you guys confirmation soon.


  58. Pauoa Boy:

    Kekoa, nah I still get the eye of the Tiger as I play sports year round. In fact couple years ago when I was back home at K-Bay playing football on the base team, my friend and I sent in one highlight video to JJ. Was trying to see if my friend could get looked at as a Kicker. This was during Ayat years. Anyway, my buddy was nicknamed "The Leg" cause he could boom consistent 40-50 yard field goals with accuracy. Plus his name is Tim Legros, big kid 6-3 245lbs. and can blast the ball. We actually won the military challenge contest they have down there during the Pro-Bowl back in 2004. Not sure where he is now as couple scouts actually was looking to recruit him.


  59. Pauoa Boy:

    Off to run errands be back in the p.m.


  60. Stretch:

    It looks like we will be having a good representation from the Advertiser Staff. I wonder if someone there can convince Juju to get her "lazy arse" (jojo's words) to drive to town and join us??


  61. djmitcho:

    I wish I could attend the blog bash and actually meet all the crazys that live in this blog. Hopefully I can work things out to make it to the OSU game and meet some of the Tsaikos. If not, I will be going to the BSU game in October.

  63. Kekoa:

    PB ~ Funny you should mention Pro-Bowl challenge. That comp started in 1984 with Ft Shafter Sports office in the lead as suggesting something for the players to do other than just visiting the troops up at Tripler and around the other installations.

    We started with Golf out at Leilehua. Then, the trash talking led to a friendly Softball game. Eventually there was a round-robin challenge on in Golf, Softball, Bowling, Basketball and Volleyball. By 1989 it even included sports for their wives to compete in with their husbands. Did I say friendly? Whoever said Pro Bowl players treated this trip as a vacation musta been snortin' Ajax!...Shoots, it was war! They hated to lose at anything, and we just loved handing them the 2nd place trophy in everything!


  64. bighilofan2:

    DYLAN LINKNER,

    an even wen yu doing everything right, do all da extraz, God is Good, lie dat,

    still yet, it takes luck too. Luck, meanin tings ova which you have no control. but its really good to plan and do what you can to control wat you can. fo dat yu get da biggest props, Dylan. keep it up!


  65. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    Pauoa Boy- da kulolo is fresh, homemade kine from my nay-bor across da street. Not too sweet - jes right!


  66. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    Congrats to his DAD for da Hoku

  68. djmitcho:

    Liz,
    Kulolo sounds good right now. After da concert last nite, we had a potluck with da Pacific Islanders Association and da Makaha Sons and someone made some mean haupia pie and a lilikoi dessert and it broke da mouth.


  69. KelliM:

    Wow! I didn't know his schedule was so demanding. I give him a lot of credit as well as well as all the other students who somehow manage to go to school and work to pay for their own tuition.


  70. Buffoman:

    After reading about the recently completed draft, I've come to the conclusion that the NCAA or NBA rule to have to go to college for a minimum of a year makes no sense. It doesn't do anything for the college game and makes a mockery of that rule.

    If the NBA wants to draft a HS freshman (and they can get a labor waiver) they should do it. Heck, colleges are making offers to 8th graders!

    If the system is going to be driven by a market system (TV packages, merchandising, etc..) and not necessarily education (college) or old school loyality to teams or cities, we should step aside and let the market dictate the outcome.

    If it comes a day where the NBA is populated by sometime ill educated young people (notice the skyrocketing drop out and non-graduating rates of our cities) as young as 16 or 17 because the team feels that that is what they want and the public will pay to see, let it happen. The game is so overpriced as it is, it'd be interesting to see if the general public would be able to afford a ticket to see this post high school teenagers play ball.

    The landscape for the college game would also change as all of the basketball talent would go directly to that NBA pool unencumbered and maybe, just maybe those young people going to a college or university would actually go to get an education, thus not adversely affecting a college's ability to allow these young people to transfer without hurting the ARP (or whatever that thing is that affects scholarships).

    Sounds simple, but with the top picks all being the "one and out" young people, why prolong the charade?


  71. 808Chef:

    Yo you Stretch! What's the email again to reserve for the party? I like put down 3. Mahalo Stretch!


  72. Stretch:

    808chef - tsaikoparty at yahoo


  73. Loa:

  74. Kekoa:

    BHF2 ~ Nope, actually we're cousins, but for some strange reason he always called me 'Unko' and now I know why!...Bwahahaha. His sisters are Bulla's age, and I got a few more years on them. In fact, by the time Pono grad from UH, I had already *grad* and retired from the Army!

    One of my grandgirls is a 17 year old Jr. playing HS VB in Cal. She's 6' 2" 225 MB/OH that hits harder than most of the LB's on the Football team!


  75. bighilofan2:

  80. Stephen Tsai:

    Mornin', folks.
    I'm tired because I was going through unmarked VHS tapes in our house. (I'm transferring them to DVDs.)
    Anyway, I came across the Hawaii Bowl game against Houston. Aside from the great fight, it was interesting to see some of the names. I mean, Tim Chang throwing a scoring pass to ... Clifton Herbert? And Travis LaBoy was ineligible to play in the game. Dane Uperesa was a backup.

    morning everybody and howzit tsaiko nation

    d1 try click on this for a morning riser bwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


  82. bonar:

    Buffo: I see your point. I don't know much about the rule and impetus for it, but if the NBA requires one year of college would that help teams gauge the ability of the kid to move up within that one year, and if they feel he's a longshot, "counsel" him to continue in school and receive an education? On the other hand, if high schoolers flood the NBA, would they then be at a "point of no return" and ineligible for a schollie?


  83. Stephen Tsai:

    All of the nostalgic folks should watch the American Life channel (604 on digital).
    It shows everything from Land of the Giants to Hill Street Blues to L.A. Law to Batman to the Green Hornet.
    OK, OK, confession time: Batman is my all-time favorite show. I actually belong to the Yvonne Craig Fan Club. During the Alabama trip, I almost went to the Batman Convention in Atlanta instead of the walk-through in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
    So, back when I was a newlywed, we bought a Sony Betamax machine. (They used to cost $600 back then. On my student budget, that was like a gazillion today.) Every Saturday morning KHON aired reruns of Batman. So I'd get up at 6 a.m., tape an hour (they showed back-to-back episodes, although it became off sync since there are three three-part storylines during the show's run), then I'd go back to sleep. I had every tape on Beta.
    Of course, Beta gave way to VHS. So Wena stored the Batman Beta tapes under the house. One day we heard noise down there. Our boxer had gone through the box of tapes. The dog actually had the tape part danging from his mouth.
    Sad day.
    But I digress.
    OK, back to UH football ...


  84. midori7:

    ST:

    What other games do you have on VHS???

    Do you have the Miami of Ohio game?


  85. gigi-hawaii ©:

    ST, Batman??? I prefer Superman.


  86. Stephen Tsai:

    Midori7:
    I'm not sure if I have the Miami game. I think I have most of the 2005 and 2006 seasons on VHS. Then I have the coaches' DVDs — sideline, end zone — of the past few seasons. Those DVDs are at the office, although I'd better move them home, if we were to ever go on strike. If I find some LaBoy games, I'll give them to you, Midori.


  87. Stretch:

    ST - does LaBoy have nice forearms??


  88. Stephen Tsai:

    Re: Superman.
    His clothes are supposed to be super resistant because they came from a blanket from Krypton. How was Ma Kent then able to sew the clothes? How did the needle penetrate the material?
    See? That's why a millionaire who works in a cave, wears tights and hangs out with a young ward is so much more believable.


  89. Stephen Tsai:

    I wonder if George Foreman has nice forearms.


  90. Stretch:

    ST - I realize why forearms are important to midori. They need to be nice looking so when pictures are taken with the arm behind her, it compliments the back of her head.


  91. gigi-hawaii ©:

    I never heard about a blanket from Krypton. That certainly wasn't in the 3 Christopher Reeve films.

    BTW, I absolutely adored Superman 2, when he kissed Lois Lane. What a beautiful, touching scene.


  92. djmitcho:

    ST,
    I loved Batman when I was growing up. I still try to find reruns of that show on tv


  93. (Jesse) James:

    Good morning Tsaikos...another nice day in Hawaii Nei....

    Wena:

    AJOE,
    Thanks so much for helping Bren and me yesterday with the t-shirts. I don’t know how you can stand on your feet so long.

    That's because A-Joe has big feet....I think size 14s in bowling shoes....MWAHAHAHHA


  94. (Jesse) James:

    ST...I think Ma Kent used a needle that Pa Kent made from the remains of Superman's ship when it landed in that field...

    Actually, I thought that only his cape was super resistant to stuff.....


  95. (Jesse) James:

    Kudos to Linkner for all his hard work. I can remember doing the same thing when I was in college....it was hard but worth it. Keep it up Dylan and don't be discouraged.

    Well, the Warriors all have their workouts set.

    Here’s something for us Tsaikos….

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=af2j59zzX3Q

    The guy kinda sounds like dpk

    ________________________________________________________________

    Ya wanna know something funny d1? We used to have a copy of that record in our home, and my brother and I used to play it all the time and do the exercises. We'd also play it just for the hell of it and listen to the song.

    Go you chicken fat gooooooo!


  98. Kekoa:

    James (Jessie type) ~ No make fun of A-Joe's feet. Rememba dat comic wit da stage name of "Luau Feet?" He here anybody talkin' stink lil'dat about feet, you goin' die!


  99. Kekoa:

    That's if he listens with his 'hear.'


  100. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Good morning all 'yall! :)

    I had the chance to meet Dylan's dad at a practice last year and he was the nicest guy. He must be very proud of Dylan, good and industrious young man that he is. The hard work and sacrifices of so many Warriors are the reason we have such a strong program. I hope Dylan sees a lot more playing time this year, he's worked hard for everything he's gotten.


  101. al:

    hah.....never heard of the blanket!???
    they you are not a real fan.

    a true fan knows that the real story of superman is told in the dc comics. yes the blanket and jj is right that father kent did find a splintered piece of metal to make a needle. i believe that other pieces of the capsule was used to cut the material.


  102. d1shima [sez:]:

    al,

    i heard that batman was gay.

    BrokeBat Cave?


  103. Stretch:

    al - are you trying to say that similar types hang together??


  104. d1shima [sez:]:

    dpk,

    haha
    Eh, wait. Da ting said that JFK distributed those records to schools across the nation; how you guys got 'em?

    Since Stephen started True Confessions.
    I was one of the keeds who nevah touch my toes all the time; and ten sit-ups? Fo'get it!


  105. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    I think our O line is going to end up to be a very strong unit. Just looking at the depth at left tackle listed above is very encouraging. I can't wait to see guys like LaCount added into the mix. There are a lot of question marks about the offense in general, but as with the O line, there is a lot of talent and a lot of depth there. I am certain the offense is going to to be much better that people expect. All of the stuff about the QB situation not with standing, lets face it, Graunke is going to be excellent back there, he showed he can get the job done last year. And behind him again, lots of quality depth. The RB spot is in good hands too. I think our recievers are going to blossom quickly into an outstanding group as well; I predict that Kealoha Pilares is going be an awesome reciever. With his smooth gliding running style, and his ability to make tacklers miss, imagine what his YAC stats are going to look like.


  106. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    d1,
    We wen boost 'em from my first grade teacher! :lol: Actually, the school gave us a copy because we were all in judo, and they wanted to help us keep fit. ;)


  107. Stephen Tsai:

    How come when Clark Kent uses his X-ray vision, he doesn't melt his fake glasses?


  108. al:

    is it my eyes?
    or is coach jones carrying a few more pounds around the opu?
    always knew he could have been a real good tsaiko.


  109. Stretch:

    al - too much steak in texas!! Also, I am very glad he didn't wear a SMU shirt.


  110. gigi-hawaii ©:

    haha anybody gravitate toward the LOVE comics as a kid? I preferred those to the superman comics. Yeah, I guess I became a Superman fan late in life -- all because of Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder.


  111. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    al,
    I noticed Coach Jones' "Tsaiko-Bump" on the news last night. I think it's probably because he's so sad about leaving Hawaii that he's eating more and sedating himself with food. Or not... :lol:

    BTW- Let's remember that term, "Tsaiko -Bump". It sounds better than other descriptors used to describe many of the Tsaiko men.


  112. al:

    he made those glasses from materials that came from krypton.

    superman had lana lang, lois lane, et al always trying to hang on to him and the like.

    batman, on the other hand never had a female fling. however, robin, a minor boy was his "sidekick". he was also raised by the butler, Alfred Pennyworth, who never married nor had a fling either.

    hmmmmmmm.


  113. al:

    stretch....there you go stretching the truth again. stop instigating things here. wena is solid proof that tsai is straight.


  114. al:

    dpk.....quit trying to flatter yourself. we don't have a bump, bumps are for girls.
    we are fat, let's just face the facts we're just fat.

    btw, how's the diet contest going????


  115. Stretch:

    al - hey, just asking what you meant by your comment.


  116. gigi-hawaii ©:

    I noticed June Jones' belly last season. He tried to accommodate it by wearing his aloha shirt outside his pants, not tucked in.

    Hmmm. He's still handsome though, don't you think? What a face!

    oh well , better than being smu'd.


  121. d1shima [sez:]:

    duffer,

    Freshman at SDSU?
    All I can say is tell her to stay away from the dorms who have jobs posted for "distributors" :shock:


  122. al:

    duffer......she should apply for "work study" program. have them call the financial aid office at sdsu and ask. they would have to do the fafsa forms and stuff.

    if she qualifies, most out of state students will, unless they are really well to do in which case no need job, they will get her an on campus job making about ten bucks an hour.


  123. al:

    duffer.....number 2 has friends there. i'll ask later, too. i believe they also are working pt.


  124. gigi-hawaii ©:

    wow $10/hr??? I was paid $1.45/hr when I worked/studied at UHM.

    back when the earth's crust was cooling...


  125. (Jesse) James:

    gigi...how were the dinosaurs back then???


  126. d1shima [sez:]:

    gigi,

    yeh, but tuition for a semester was less than what you and hubby got for your dinner in Japan


  127. A-House:

    bighilofan2:

    Much thanks for your efforts in getting the JUGS machines repaired prior to fall practice.

    It's your initiative that brought the matter to the attention of the "right" people and starting the process of contacting the repair person - maybe, he will fix for free and take a "tax credit" for his time and materials making this his contribution to UH football.

    Contributions can come in many different mediums other than cash!

    Again, another great Tsaiko moment by a great Tsiko-person.


  128. d1shima [sez:]:

    al,

    Can still try for work study but most schools include that in their fin aid packages that already went out.


  129. al:

    i bet tuition was 92 bucks a semester, too.

    1.45 hr. are you telling us the truth about your age??????


  130. gigi-hawaii ©:

    James, this was PRE- dinosaurs.

    D1, I had a 4 yr state schollie. Tuition was just $110 a semester back then.


  131. al:

    changing the subject......

    what would be the cost to build a new stadium?

    we will be spending 185mil to renovate, will the stadium still be structurally sound long enough to recoup most of the cost to spruce it up?

    how soon will the action plan start? or will the state drag its behind as usual?


  132. Garret:

    what would be the cost to build a new stadium?

    Al,

    Very good questions, especially since the state is putting off the big revenue generating additions (which will add high-priced seats) until some undetermined time in the future. We all know that the cost of those additions will be higher than what is being estimated now, so that $185 mil will probably end up being well past $200 mil before they are done.

    I'm an alum of Stanford and went to a number of games (plus had my graduation there) at their old stadium. They recently built a 50,000 seat stadium for between $90 and $95 mil!

    The Southern Bleacher Company, based in Graham, TX, has constructed, in part, a brand new football stadium for the University of Stanford in California that is scheduled to open in September of 2006. In June of 2005, Stanford University's Board of Trustees gave preliminary approval for a major re-building of Stanford Stadium; the 85,500-seat facility has been the home of Stanford Football since 1921.

    The trustees approved a concept plan presented by the Department of Athletics that will modernize almost all facilities within the stadium, and reduce the stadium's capacity to 50,000 seats for the purpose of bringing spectators closer to the field.

    The re-building of Stanford Stadium cost approximately $90 million.


  133. Garret:

    The NY Times wrote about Stanford's new stadium. It made sense for them to make the new one have less seats than the old once because they never sold out anyway.

    The rationale behind Stanford University's $95 million project to shrink the campus football stadium is not intuitively obvious.

    But athletic department officials think it will help the university make more money.

    "It looks funny, but we hope to increase our income, twice at least," said Ray M. Purpur, senior associate athletic director at Stanford and a major fund-raiser for the project, which was begun almost immediately after Stanford played its last home football game in November. The project is to be completed for the fall season.

    The university has mounted Web cameras for Stanford football fans to monitor the renovation project (stanfordstadium.com). Construction work has proceeded for 16 hours a day, to make sure that the new stadium is ready in the fall.


  134. Garret:

    By the way, the stadium is right on campus and is used for many things such as graduation. They built it right where the old stadium was, and they worked 16 hours per day to get it built between football seasons. They were actually to build a brand new 50,000 seat stadium where the old stadium was for between $90 and $95 mil without missing a football game!

    A rough winter actually caused the stadium to not be ready for the SJSU game, but that was the only game that had to be relocated.

    The capacity of the renovated stadium was set to be approximately 50,000 seats made by Ducharme Seating. Work began literally minutes after the Cardinal's last home game of the 2005 football season, a close loss to Notre Dame on November 26. Bulldozers began tearing out the natural field turf in a ceremony held while attendees were still in the stadium for the game.


  135. koakane™:

    al,

    after reading the stadium renovation article, had the some questions also

    what kind of view will they will be getting for fb games from the special boxes in the four corners?

    yes plus the structure integrety

    btw what happen to the contractor who stated this steel will never rust?


  136. Garret:

    Back to work...I happened to check in and saw what Al wrote and figured I should point out what happened at a school that I know something about.


  137. Stephen Tsai:

    I guess I've spoiled Al with too many photos of Steele Jantz and Daniel Libre. Now all he notices are abs.


  138. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    al,
    I'm secure enough in my masculinity to use the term "Tsaiko-Bumps". I unnerstand if it make YOU uncomfortable. Besides, I'm beyond fat. I'm "Uber-Flabben". Don't ask about the diet...


  139. Garret:

    They were actually to build a brand new 50,000 seat stadium where the old stadium was for between $90 and $95 mil without missing a football game!

    Correcting my post: a bad winter meant that they missed one football game due to the construction.


  140. Stephen Tsai:

    What did Superman do with his Clark Kent clothes after he changed in the phone booth?
    And, uh, isn't a phone booth transparent?
    At least Batman had the decency to change at home.


  141. koakane™:

    D1, I had a 4 yr state schollie. Tuition was just $110 a semester back then

    gigi besides cave wall drawing and fire building what oddah subjects you took?


  142. Garret:

  148. Rob25:

    OK if we are making requests for DVD's then I want the set that oldie donated. Who do I have to make nice to for those?

    Ronnie - You gotta give me whatever you get!


  149. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:

    Am waiting for my ride into town right now so i don't have much time to go into details about Aloha Stadium. However, the best independent financial analysis of building another stadium on the same site is about $180- $200 million today's dollars; in a location between the current one and the Mapunuapuna/Iwilei area is about $220 million today's dollars; West O`ahu campus, anywhere from $280 to $350 million. The issue is not so much the cost of land or even the on-site amenities but the infrastructure upgrades and additions.

    Based upon conversations with many, many people in many, many capacities, there is little support at this time to building a new stadium in West O`ahu because the population nexus will never be out there

    There's the horn - gotta go - back very late this evening. Is there any interest in getting the documents for the Bash Display?


  150. Ronnie:

    Hi Rob!

    I'll share with you! and I'll give you 14 blank DVDs to copy your set, if you figure out what we have to do to get one ;)

    By the way, thanks for mentioning my request for the Boise game. I now know that d1shima may go and d1shima is planning to go. I won't have to scream, I mean cheer, alone!

  153. Rob25:

    Hey Ronnie-

    Back to the grind, huh?

    We gotta get our hands on those...not like we don't get enough football. Is there ever too much? Might have to watch Rolo pick apart BYU with Chad Owens again this weekend.

    BTW Ronnie, Chad was on Artie's show this morning. Just had his surgery two days ago and will be heading back to Hawaii in July. Maybe you need to make an emergency trip home. You can just call him. LOL


  154. Jason:

    Ah, Laupepa Letuli. I'm with WarriorMojo, I think he's going to be a very, very good one. All he needs to do is keep healthy and get on that field.

    I might have mentioned this before, but I won a whole bunch of comics once as a door prize at a party for my Dad's work when I was young. I went looking for them one day; Dad had thrown them all away. I never even got to look at them. Ah, and I had hoped that there were some rare ones accidentally left in there. ;-)


  155. Jason:

    Quick NBA Draft post, just the one and I'm done talking about the Pacers: who the heck grades their draft as a D? I say it was a resounding A+!

    Repost:

    Okay, I have compiled a list of photographs and videos, and the people in them. Same as last time — for those that went to Genji last night, I will send you a link to a private album that contains all of these photos and videos.

And if you would like to give permission for your photo/video to be posted in a public album to be shared on the blog, please let me know as well. E-mail me at jnagaoka (at) hawaii.rr.com, and I will send you the link to the private album.

    (At the same time, if you could update me with your blog name and preferred e-mail addresses, as I am updating my Windows Mail Address Book. This goes for everyone; I'm not going to add you to my list if you don't let me know what your preferred e-mail addresses are.)

    I was short one ticket at the time.

    Let's everybody let SeveM put our names on his travel list to see how big the party will be and then work with Calvin to juggle tickets.

    hokay?

    So UKU@la and Calvin from Kona is attending? Please cc me on your Oregon game travel plans so I can update the page. The logistics on this one is almost as diverse as Florida, but I see a pattern of possible carpools and tailgate/cattle calls.

    BTW, speaking of Calvin, I have added our karaoke video star to the Genji dinner/karaoke call page along with a few more photos at...

    koakane,

    Not unless you heard some breaking news.


  160. al:

    back to work now....

    thanks garret on the stanford stadium. i didn't go in but did see it from the outside but it is quite a gem that stanford arena. my son got to work several games as an usher for an fundraising project there. he said it is quite awesome.

    so, my next question is.....did the powers to be do any kind of research at all? wouldn't the stanford project be one to look at?
    wouldn't the inclusion of box seats, strategically located by a top priority?
    why would we want to build something that won't take us into the next decade at least?

    you want to be bigtime, then you gotta do bigtime stuff.

    the problem is really because the university of hawaii does not own the stadium or control it. that is why we have archaic thinking in times where we need greater vision.

    john a. burns....where are you?


  161. al:

    superman changed at the speed of light after all he was faster than a speeding bullet, therefore, no one could see him actually change.

    his regular clothes were compressed to but a handful of fabric by his hands which could turn coal into diamonds.

    batman, did change at home in his secluded bat cave with the help of his two male servants, alfred and robby.


  162. SteveM:

    I read Superman and Batman a lot too. But my favorite comic was Stan Lee's "Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos" (later Nick Fury became the head of SHIELD). Sgt. Fury got me reading other Marvel titles like Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Dr. Strange, Captain America, Thor, Ant Man...

    My comic book piles got thrown out by my parents too... :(


  163. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Does everybody remember the state offering the stadium to UH a couple of years back and "The Fumbler" turning them down? I wonder if the state would make that same offer after the stadium is refurbished and repaired?


  164. MeiLing:

    Calvin, LizK,

    Are you getting tickets thru UH? Any idea what section & rows you have tickets for right now? $46 for a ticket thru UH? I'm gonna check with one of our former students who's at OSU to see if he can get me a ticket.

    I'm trying to firm up plans for September & it looks like I'm gonna ship my car out of Fremont, CA. I need to be in the Bay Area the week following the OSU game. Sooo, I might drive up to Corvalis for the game & then go back down to Oakland. Just don't know if I'll have my house wrapped up by the week before the game. If I go, I'll be staying at a friend's house.

    Guten tag, guys!

    Midori7 and Ronnie,

    If you don't mind a strictly amateur job of transferring our VHS copy of the 2001 UH vs Miami of Ohio game to a DVD with all commercials included, we would be happy to burn you each a copy, Please let us know.

    sj and myki

    al:

    Russ Saito, I think that's his name of DAGS, previously mentioned that it would cost the State about $300,000 to build a new stadium - believe this includes land acquisition cost.

    I believe, with good engineering, a new stadium can be built in the "lower parking lot" at the existing stadium site.

    Stadium level should be raised so the lower level can be used to park all the buses, police vehicles, staff and emergency vehicles, create loading zones for food, etc. and eliminate the "flood" hazard.

    It should also include "over head" walk ways to eliminate pedistrain traffic on Salt Lake Blvd and Kahuapani. This allows direct access/exit to the stadium.

    Old stadium can be razed and turned into a parking lot or park if a "multi-level" parking lot is built at the old 50th State carnival site. Lot would have multiple vehicle and pedistrian entrance/exist to eliminate crossing traffic on Kam Hwy. Again, build overhead bridges to cross Salt Lake blvd. Hopefully, this structure will help to eliminate all the "neighborhood parking".


  169. WarriorMojo:

    Jason, every time I see that list I keep thinking "Wow, somebody must really like 'Photograph' if they sang it so many times. But was it the Def Leppard song or the Ringo Starr one?"

    And then I think "Oh, they must have had a contest to see who could sing it the best. But was it Def Leppard or RIngo?"

    And then at some point, as I keep reading, I realize what's going on and I feel really silly.

    Ronnie:

    djmitcho posted earlier today that he may attend the Boise State game


  171. BG:

  173. Stephen Tsai:

    Oldie's donation will be a door prize at the party.


  174. Stretch:

    PB - Great News!! Looking forward to seeing you again. I will give g-nalo the good news.....that he has to pay for you.


  175. homey ®:

    PB - "back door action"? I nevah no marines wuz li' dat!!! :shock:


  176. homey ®:

    If is wasn't for Superman, Batman, et al, there would be no Under Armour.


  177. WarriorMojo:

    Someone posted on the SportsHawaii Board that Tengan stepped down at St. Louis last night. Hmm.....


  178. Stretch:

    homey - don't forget Mr Incredible


  179. Pauoa Boy:

    homey - Marines are not laddat but had to play AF rules to get the hook ups. No ask, No tell :smile:


  180. Pauoa Boy:

    Stretch - Nah I can send you the money since I bringing my bro too. No like him have to pay for us.


  181. Stretch:

    PB - no ask, no tell?? I thought that is the entire military rules


  182. homey ®:

  188. d1shima [sez:]:

    Mojo,

    The post on the oddah side says, "has left" which, from what I understand, is more accurate than "stepped down"

    'nuff said.


  189. d1shima [sez:]:

    Well, maybe Kenny Endo is a lurker!

    Ralph - No major problems with Firefox 3

    As mentioned by others, it is safer to keep at least 2 browsers on your system. Download Opera as another backup browser so at least you can download applications if your main browser is having problems. Give Firefox 3 another try. I'm almost certain that the problems you had were coincidental. If you feel comfortable you should also get a registry cleaner to get rid of orphan registry keys. There are free cleaners out there.


  191. homey ®:

    So does that mean STL is headed in the right direction?


  192. d1shima [sez:]:

    Does the former coach leaving mean that for UH?


  193. homey ®:

    Cornering the European market...UH cornerbacks Gerard Lewis and Myron Newberry...DOH! I get it! Damn these sportswriters are so cryptic. :lol:


  194. Pauoa Boy:

    Coordinatahs of dah Blog BashAu'ryte so what do I need to bring to this Blog Bash besides myself. I'm hearing dat gotta bring memoribilia or sumtin, maybe couple bottles of "DA JUICE", some beer for inu pia or sumtin, what's the 411 scoops...


  195. homey ®:

    d1shima - :wink:


  196. g-nalo:

    Stretch - Nah I can send you the money since I bringing my bro too. No like him have to pay for us.

    PB - all your efforts getting here.......impressive. good thing i'm already in cause if San Diego can, Oahu should. haaaa

    send in for your brother only and that should make it a good compromise.


  197. homey ®:

    PB - Roast duck from Nam Fong.


  198. Stephen Tsai:

    Stretch:
    According to people in Manoa who have ties to the program — am I dropping enough bread crumbs? — Tengan did indeed tell his coaches he was going to resign.


  199. (Jesse) James:

    ST...but is he being forced to "resign" or is it of his own free will????


  200. A-House:

    ST:

    Does this mean that UH may not benefit from getting St Louis players in the future?

    Hope the next coach will also be a strong supporter of the Warriors!


  201. Stephen Tsai:

    Sounds like it was a fed-up thing.
    There's a news conference in an hour.


  202. BG:

    We're all excited for your supa good news!!! We all know RHIP...but, sometimes, the underground, back alley, "supply sgt" route is way more effective! lol

    Still get a couple more tidbits to smooth the way over and back. I'll be in touch.

    Guarans you win the award for longest distance traveled to make the pah-tay! Unless some Tsaiko from east coast or Korea (TChahng) or China (G) shows up. Wow! How cool would that be?!! :D


  203. BG:

    Opps! Previous msg was for Pauoa Boy


  204. Koauka:

    Sad, really sad for the Crusaders. The current administration needs to get a grip on the operation of the ENTIRE school.

    Sorry Bulla, d1shima, that's the way I see it. Delbert Tengan is not Cal Lee nor Cal Lee is Delbert Tengan.


  205. Imua 808:

    stepped down, resigned, left the field, smelling the coffee, better opportunity....blah, blah, blah

    i did the post after confirming with very, very reliable sources. the word is that DT was upset he was not GIVEN the AD post, was insulted and you would not believe the 'going on's' up there.

    d1 and Bulla might be able to shed some light, but i hear that it is a big sigh of relief from the alumni to the lower school athletes....

    thanks coach, now good bye.

    he did win back to back ILH champs, and led the team to consecutive 2nd place finishes in the State Championship game losing to Kahuku and Leilehua in the last 98 seconds of each game. Congratulations, and good luck in your future endeavors.


  206. d1shima [sez:]:

    Pauoa Boy,

    Great news. Look forward to seeing you again.


  207. Bulla:

    jesse,

    no one is forced to do anything. one would only hope that as a 'coach', he would keep the players interests' first and foremost. cancelling practice because 'the administration has not announced a new head coach', is a fair representation of the individual. good bye and good luck!

  225. homey ®:

    gigi - don't forget to bring your single beer.

    I was also thinking of you losing golf balls. Do you hit it far enough to lose sight of the ball or for that matter to reach beyond the rough? If not then you should definitely challenge the hubby.


  226. Pauoa Boy:

    koakane - can but member I stay in Sacramento still and not San Diego yet where Garret and Ronnie stay. Anyway, need me for bring sumtin let me know what I gotta bring.


  227. midori7:

    sj-macro & myki:

    That would be AWESOME if you could burn me a copy of the Miami-Ohio game! Thank you!!!

    Pauoa Boy:

    looking forward to meeting you at the Blog Party!


  228. gigi-hawaii ©:

    The only thing hubby is worried about is the ravine. Worried his ball won't fly over it to the other side. LOL. Per Liz, we women will be on the other side when we hit our ball.

    Judging from practice, my ball might go sideways into the forest, so sure, I'll lose some balls.


  229. homey ®:

    PB - I already mentioned the roast duck, you can also add in hamachi.


  230. gigi-hawaii ©:

    QUESTION RE DRINKS -- Are we supposed to bring our own? Or will they be provided with the food?

I gotta tie a string on my finger or something so I remember.........2nd thought, maybe a post-it with a note. Knowing me, I'd go home and look at the string on my fingah' and ask myself, "Now why did I do that?!?".


  249. Pauoa Boy:

  250. homey ®:

  262. Pauoa Boy:

    Tengan gone......as SL football/basketball coach, but will still teach PE...is that an oxymoron of sorts?


  270. homey ®:

    Fruit bowls are fine.


  271. homey ®:

    Bulla - Well at least now he'll have time to do things he couldn't do because of his busy schedule.

  274. homey ®:

    Dancing is allowed! I plan to dance.


  275. homey ®:

    I wouldn't say a cut in salary. You get paid for what you do.


  276. gigi-hawaii ©:

    homey, who you gonna dance with? your wife going to the party, too?


  277. homey ®:

    gigi - get plenty to dance with...the Marauder cheerleader, Rob25, UHfan808, Midori7, koakane, James...


  278. Bulla:

    homey,

    if your post is true about getting paid for what you do, would a rebate be too much to ask for? just checking....


  279. Bulla:

    homey,

    i'd start with koakane first and work your way up. after dancing with our body double 'mel torme' it only gets better, haha.


  280. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Can't wait to see homey's moves!


  281. koakane™:

    things sure happen fast on da rugged heights. must be the kamakani that blew the small fire into one huge blaze. bwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


  282. homey ®:

    Bulla - I know what you mean. But alas, just gotta be happy with the situation as it is now. You need a punching bag? Tell lynn to warm up her dancing shoes!


  283. homey ®:

    I mean boots!


  284. Bulla:

    you can see homey's moves at Venus Nite club 3 nites a week, ask for Lucious and he'll get you a front row seat.....what forearms he has.........purrrrrrrrrrrrfect


  285. d1shima:

  288. koakane™:

  289. Bulla:

    homey,

    she'll chew you up like oatmeal, she loves to dance, in fact i think she was dancing at our wedding, can't remember, i fell asleep....her sister who danced at 'da bash', is a former go-go dancer in the cages at Pipeline, head cheerleader for St Louis, and is now a Certified Zumba instructor, haha...must run in de blood....hehe.


  290. Bulla:

    koa,

    just trying to imagine that move step gave me a brain cramp...i'd rather see esme, lyn, and uhfan808 do a tempting step...together...ohhhhhhhh my.


  291. Kekoa:

    Lassie came home this morning after searching all nite. There was a parchment note tied to the collar that read, "Don't come looking agin!" signed, >i>Esme. Whoa...the plot thickens!


  292. Koa-mahu:

    Ehh Koakane! Watch you get going on? I hear you going do something on the wess side. Ehh I like go! you no come visit me anymore. No make me say the stuff on dis blog haa! Only person come visit me is James! Koakane, I going karange your alas. Hmm Maybe das why no no come see me any more. :(

    I better go ross now before I miss da sale on some nice heels. Only place I can find size 16's. Auntie out!


  293. lakerj32:

    Its sad that Tengan is resigning.I think he was a good coach. I'm not much of an ILH guy but St.Louis does send a lot of players to UH. I'd say I'd want him at my High School if Castle didnt have a good coach but Coach Maeda is a great coach.


  294. WreckinEyez:

    Kekoa... Sounds like the dog stopped off and wrote the note himself before even trying to walk through Ewa. LOL


  295. Rich2176:

    Hey All -

    Not to disrupt any sort of linear conversation that may be happening, but I've got a few things to say.

    1. Kathy and Brenda are lurkers. They are Margo's (and ST's) friends from school. They wanted to thank everyone for making them feel "at home" during the party. They could not believe what ST has created, even having RK, et al join in the festivities.

    2. I am so humbled by the love and Aloha that everyone projected. Now, I know why I need to return and live there full time.

    3. Margo is amazing. That cake brought tears to my eyes. I think only Kathy saw me bawling like a baby when I saw it, but after everything that Margo has gone through since October, she wanted to contribute to the party. That is my all time favorite cake and I hope that those who took some home cherished it.

    4. LizK - Shame on you for having so much battery power and back-up memory sticks. Just kidding. I look back at the photos and get a little teary-eyed.

    5. Jason - I'll be your uncle, but PLEASE, never sing "Three Times A Lady" to me

    I had absolutely ZERO internet access in Kona. I haven't really caught up on the blog, but ST said there was some sort of "what's Rich doing looking at his hand" contest. The truth is, I had melted wax from the candle and was trying to get it off. Not easy after 18 holes of golf with Stretch & Sleaze and several more little green bottles. That's the answer I'm sticking with. LOL

    Honestly, I've never been more humbled in my life. Everyone was so genuine and made this haole from LA feel at home. I told Ronnie and Brenda this was amazing.

    Okay, it's 7:40 here in LA. Time to leave the office and get ready for another golf tournament tomorrow. BTW, the JJ tournament was excellent. Played w/ Vince Ferragamo again, and partied w/ Jr. Seau Monday night. What a gentleman. Also, Coach Mac is a quiet leader. Expect good things this season.


  296. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Rich2176- uh... you ain't one haole... nuff said.

    :mrgreen:


  297. Rich2176:

    LizK- Am I in the club now? J/K


  298. LizKauai [Believer]:

    brah - you was in long before me!


  299. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Kekoa- so, wassup with Lassie and Esme???
    hmmm

    Reminds me of my orange cat. I dunno how he gets out but when he wants in, he wanders around my windows to see which one I'm near and asks to get in. We have a 2 story house.


  300. Rich2176:

    LizK - any more Kodak dreams?


  301. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Rich2176- Tsai... I guess I'm too exhausted to dream these days. Where's da beef?
    :shock: :LOL:


  302. LizKauai [Believer]:

    :LOL:= :lol:


  303. WreckinEyez:

    Rich... Haole is a mind frame and an attitude...

    You are not Haole.... We have some of those and you are not one of them.

    You have just as much "island" in you as pride period.


  304. Kazz:

    James,

    Sorry I got your e-mail just now. Ignore the phone message.

    ST,

    Sorry to bother but you got mail. No rush.


  305. Rich2176:

    LizK - So glad you made the trip over for the party. BTW, Mike Tresler is the ULTIMATE gentleman. Glad I've been able to play with him 2 years in a row in Kona.


  306. Kazz:

    Rich is more kamaaina dan me. :mrgreen:


  307. Ralph:

    who is posting a list of those who are official signed up for the bash....email didn't go through, forgot to email like onarock, haven't paid so not official....and where is the Wong room

  333. Garret:

    Al,

    I've been behind on my reading and didn't realize that there was a thread on SportsHawaii that already had mentioned Stanford's stadium. At least my articles were different than what was mentioned there. I had a little different perspective on the situation because I'm an alum so they had (unsuccessfully) tried to ask me to money for the stadium before they were building it and I couldn't believe it when I was told they were going to build it in just one offseason! I was even more surprised when they were so successful in building it and got it done for so little money...especially since the problems with Aloha Stadium were well known then.


  334. Garret:

    I don't know if anyone is around, but I *highly* recommend this site for anyone who has a few minutes of free time. This site has photos of all of the helmets of football teams--NFL, D-1A, D-1AA, D-II, JC, etc.

    This page I've linked to above shows all of the WAC teams. If you scroll down you'll see a collection of UH helmets through its history.


  335. SteveM:

    A-House -- I am not in charge of dress code, but have this opinion: "Tsai-ko" black t-shirts, polo shirts, and ladies tops should always be acceptable wear at a Tsai-ko event. What you wear below that might be subject to articulation. :)

    Also, I would think UH sport wear is always acceptable in whatever color.

    BTW, those wanting Tsai-ko t-shirts should contact James. Photo of shirt and order info at:

    Hope you can make 4-5 sets of DVD's to avoid a bloodbath in the rush to get one. I'm serious...it will be a money-maker. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to pay $100 for a set. It's just too bad that the UH booster club hasn't jumped on it. Tsaikos keep making great suggestions, but getting action from UH takes bhf2 type kick-starts.

    Synch'd to the radio...oh wow! :o

    I cannot believe that the blue turf might have actually been a big factor in BSU getting a good WR recruit out of Texas.

    Mansfield Timberview wide receiver Aaron Burks (6-3, 180) said he has orally committed to Boise State after taking an unofficial visit there last week.

    "Boise State has always been one of my favorite teams to watch," Burks said. "Playing video games as a kid, I was always liked their blue field. The way they've played the last couple of years also attracted me."


  351. Garret:

    Another recruiting note:

    DeSoto lineman Chris Atchison (6-3, 265) said he has orally committed to SMU. Atchison said he chose SMU over offers from Notre Dame, Arizona, Houston, Oklahoma State and Tulsa.


  352. Garret:

    This Houston Chronicle blogger did a great job in analyzing Nevada (since Texas Tech plays Nevada this season). Since we've discussed the Pistol offense so much already, I thought I'd post this part about Nevada's defense.

    The 40 Front is a variant of the 4-4 defense. It appears to be basically a 4-3 alignment, with the strong safety playing further up with the linebackers. Here is the best explanation of the defense I found. It's zone-based, not blitz-heavy, but the defensive line is supposed to be big enough to put pressure on the quarterback by itself. With all the stunts involved, it seems like if run correctly, it would be a tricky defense to face. As last season's results show, though, either the scheme is bad or the execution was.

    They gave up an average of 35 points per game in the WAC, so rest assured that the Red Raiders will put up points in this game.

    Five starters return on defense. On the defensive line, only senior Mundrae Clifton returns. An inexperienced WAC defensive line shouldn't lay a finger on Graham Harrell, and that's pretty much that.

    In the middle, three starting linebackers return. Jerome Johnson, Joshua Mauga and Kevin Porter are all seniors, and should prove to be the strength of the defense. With the quick slants and screens, they're going to be tested severely against Tech's athletic receivers.

    In the secondary, only senior strong safety Uche Anyanwu returns. That appears bad for Nevada at a glance, but even worse when you take into account the way the 40 Front works. If the strong safety tends to play up, that could help protect against the short passes, but it will leave a thin, inexperienced secondary to protect against long- and medium-range passes.

    re-winning the opening game coin toss at Florida

    If your coach Mack and you win the opening coin toss what do you do? The options are simple. But are they? He has the choice of playing offense or defense first starting the game. Conventionally most coaches elect to kick off starting the game. And they would rather get the ball first starting the second half which allows them an extra thirty minutes at half time to study the opposing teams defense. And to prepare and make adjustments against the other team. Strategy wise it makes sense to defer until the second half. Others, like Coach Jones notoriously would want to set the tempo and be on offense first... reasoning that a opening momentum is a boost for the team. So what approach should Coach Mack take? Win the opening coin toss, play offense first or play defense first?

    Giving your team the best chance to win Coach Mack has to defer. And play defense first. He has to tell his players well in advance of game time of what his plans are going to be. And this is the key. He has sit down with his players in the month of June and sell the idea that his team's defense is the backbone of the team. And win the coin toss in Florida and they'll be on the field first in setting the tone for the rest of the team to follow. The reverberations of his team's defense doing well initially sets up the offense and special teams feeding off the play of the defense.

    From the psychological standpoint Coach Mack confiding in his defensive players that unlike how in years past, customarily, it was a for gone concussion that win the coin flip and the offense drew first blood by electing to receive the opening kickoff. Yet hopefully we'll see a different approach where the defense gets their licks in first is better for the development of the whole team (at least morale wise)...Under Coach Jones' philosophy he wanted the ball in his hand. And he wanted to be the first on the board. And the message he was sending to his defense team was that everything was always predicated on the offense. And the defense never did gain the celebratory status compared to that of the offense. Although, the defense was a pivotal reason for the great turn around from last year. But on a Coach Mack team expect a more balanced approach to everything, namely offense, defense, and special teams...and knowing the best strategy to start the game(?). A greater harmony on a team is achieved when the head coach says to his units we approach every situation with an open mind.

    Now if he tells his defensive team no sooner than the beginning of camp and two a days that his defensive players will be put to test first if they win the coin toss. This deliverance of telling his defense that we want you to set the pace. And tempo for the Florida game would bold so well for the team. Getting the juices flowing, heart pumping and excitement started in the players is easily accomplished by saying we want our defense to start off the game.

    The theme for the upcoming season. And camp, I hope, see the players in a frenzy and killer type mania where they smell blood and the have this hunger deep seeded in them. Florida and the upcoming season is fast approaching. From my prospective, I think if Coach Mack announcing to the team that his defensive unit (should Hawaii win the coin toss) will have the honors of drawing first blood on the Florida field will evoke the spark in the team knowing that this is a different approach than from the past.

    Whoa. I hope expectations don't get too high. These are purely amateur DVDs. The reason I offerred them to ST for free was because I know what they are worth. Zero.

    Think of my video editting skills as being on par with ST's photoeditting skills when he first started putting his photos on the blog (not trying to put you down, Stephen).

    I know WarriorMojo was making copies for the Tsaikos at cost some time ago. Please don't expect mine to be of equal quality. It's just fun to watch the game again with Curran and Kekaula's perspective.
