Game day: Funaki to start

September 27th, 2008
By

Inoke Funaki has been announced as the starting quarterback.

* * *

The UH administration remains committed to the Warriors.
Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw attended yesterday's walk-through in the drizzle. She gave a pep talk at the end of the 45-minute workout.
The Warriors closed with a cheer of: "Chancellor!"

* * *
Equipment specialist Al Ginoza is one of the power brokers on the UH campus.
The distribution of everything from jerseys to gloves goes through Ginoza.
The reason nobody is wearing No. 15 or No. 14 is because of Ginoza, in conjunction with associate head coach Rich Miano. (Of course, that's also why three players are assigned No. 58, too.)
Most important, Ginoza selects the quarterback who picks the game balls. Teams supply the six balls they use on offense, punts and placekicks. There also is a backup supply of six balls that are used in case of wet conditions.
Quarterbacks can't gripe about the grip since they're the ones choosing the footballs.

* * *

It was interesting that USC head coach Pete Carroll attended yesterday's Punahou game to watch linebacker Manti Te‘o.
It would have been even more interesting if Oregon State coach Mike Riley showed up, too.
Conspiracy theorist insist the announcement of the two-game UH-BYU series was made with Te‘o in mind.
If so, now is the time for UH to try to sign up Stanford , UCLA and Notre Dame, too.

    first yawhoooooooooooooooooo


  2. Stephen Tsai:

    Sure, it's easy to be No. 1 when you don't show up for the party.


  3. koakane™:

    morning and what a beautiful day it is

    how’s all the tsai-ko’s and tasi-kette’s doing so far”

  4. koakane™:

    that was yesterday today is another day

    and so what you showing up after tgate to continue parting?


  5. addahknowjoe:

    OK. So, if ST gave the pep talk, what cheer would the team close with?


  6. Stephen Tsai:

    While you were in court, Koakane, you missed the action:
    • Calvin from Kona serving as the doorman.
    • A guy trying to steal away the Birthday Girl to his own private party.
    • And Mr. Ball-and-Chains, Stretch, getting summoned home.


  7. addahknowjoe:

    1-2-3- "TSAI-KO!"


  8. Stephen Tsai:

    Addahknowjoe:

    "One, two, three ... GET OUTTA HERE!"


  9. addahknowjoe:

    Eh, how come you guys left before I got there?


  10. Kekoa:

    Hey Pahtna! Getting packed up and ready to blast off for da T-gate. Was going need a another old screwdriver wen I get dere. Also some empty aluminum pans.

    Going bring extra rice jez in case.


  11. Stephen Tsai:

    Joe:
    You would have been proud of Sports. She has some velocity with the darts. Not so much accuracy, but she can bring the heat.


  12. Stephen Tsai:

    Midori plays with, uh, some anger.
    I think that's why they wouldn't let her carry the knife to cut the cake.


  13. addahknowjoe:

    Hawaiian! We getting ready too. 'Sports on a small kine run to the hale ku'ai for last minute rations.


  14. Kazz:

    I don’t know what to say really. Nine hours to the biggest battle of our college lives all comes down to this game. Either we heal as a team or we are going to crumble. Inch by inch, play by play till we’re finished. We are in hell right now, gentlemen believe me and we can stay here and get the crap kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell. One inch, at a time.

    Now I can’t do it for you. I'm in the stands. I look around and I see these young faces and I think, I mean some of us have made every wrong choice a middle age man could make. I pissed away all my money, believe it or not. I chased off anyone who has ever loved me and lately, I can’t even stand the face I see in the mirror.

    You know when you get older in life things get taken from you That’s, that’s part of life. but, you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out that life is just a game of inches. So is football. Because in either game life or football the margin for error is so small, I mean one half step too late or to early you don’t quite make it. One half second too slow or too fast and you don’t quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in ever break of the game every minute, every second.

    On this team, WE FIGHT FOR THAT INCG. On this team, WE TEAR OURSELVES AND EVERYONE AROUND US APART FOR THAT INCH. We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch. Cause we know when we add up all those inches that’s going to make the difference between WINNING and LOSING between LIVING and DYING.

    I’ll tell you this in any fight, it is the guy who is willing to die who is going to win that inch. And I know if I am going to have any life anymore it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch because that is what LIVING is.

    THE SIX INCHES IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE!!!

    Now, no one can make you do it. You gotta look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes. Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. You are going to see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows when it comes down to it, you are gonna do the same thing for him.

    That’s a team, gentlemen and either we heal now, as a team, or we will die as individuals.

    That’s football guys.

    That’s all it is.

    Now, whattaya gonna do?


  15. Stephen Tsai:

    In review, when we start our own gang, Sports is in charge of scouting, Midori is the enforcer, Calvin is the collector. Koakane is the Charlie's Angels' guy who gives the orders but we never see in person.


  16. Stephen Tsai:

    Hey, that's the same speech Kazz gave to his darts team yesterday.


  17. d1島::

    Kazz,

    808%. I like that...


  18. addahknowjoe:

    ST- Hahahah!! It's her lead in with that Lead Foot and follow through.


  19. d1島::

    I wonder if Kazz would use the same speech for Jason's Mathletes?


  20. addahknowjoe:

    I like that.

    Nothing less than 808%!

    So is that how you get them to pose for pictures? They need to be in a "calm submissive" state right?

    Would linebackers be considered "red zone" cases and a muzzle is needed?

    Ok... I admit... I watch it too. :oops:

  79. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:

    If Good Things Happen in Threes, then we are due for a win tonight!! Will follow up on NO. 1 on Sunday,

    T-GATE RECYCLING: Once again, we’ll provide recycling services at the T-Gate which includes taking your contributions from home as well. We’ll be donating the proceeds in the name of Tsaikos to Dole Middle School’s cross-country program under the supervision of Coach Alan Inaba to purchase shoes, uniforms, and event day meals.

    Nearly 80% of the students are in the free or reduced-cost lunch program plus the median five-person family income in the area is under $30,000 whereas at Kawananoka Middle School, about three miles closer to town, it’s well over $50,000 - so proper athletic shoes & uniforms are not a high priority for many parents.

    Coach Alan and his wife and two of his students will be stopping by the T-Gate sometime between 2 pm & 3:30 pm before heading over to the Stadium to see the game. Their tickets are courtesy of a Tsaiko Lurker and the UH Athletic Department. Please welcome them in case DrDoc and I haven’t gotten back yet.

    And Yes! This is Good News #2.

    We’re coming early to help with the set-up including a tarp to cover the grills as well as the pop-up tent, two tables, four chairs, a table-in-a-box, recycling bin, microwave/power strip/cord, and very large trash bags - I think 65 gallon size. Then we’re taking off for a couple of hours to run errands and expect to be back on site around 3 pm or thereabouts.

    See Ya'll

    GO WAHINE!!!! GO WARRIORS!!!!

    Good morning-ish everyone!

    ST -- I was impressed by your words opening the section on the UH Offensive outlook in today's "UH won't be facing Tomey of old" game analysis...

    The pass pocket is not a fixed architectural structure. Its dimensions fluctuate, influenced by the defensive push, fatigue, momentum and, most of all, the synchronicity between the blockers and quarterback....

    Profound...and it flows!

    ...actually, sounds like something pride. would say... :)
    Yup, that good!

    i think it's called gee-po or gi-po, something like that. they're delicious, but they catch on fire if you leave em in the microwave too long.

    Quote from the Salt Lake Tribune about the UH-BYU scheduling. Interesting that BYU has 3 WAC teams out of their 4 nonconference games.

    "It's great to rekindle the rivalry with Hawaii. Over the years the tradition has included fantastic players, coaches, teams and games," said BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe. "Add in terrific fans and stadiums and you have the ingredients of an excellent match up."
    The Cougars' nonconference schedule in 2012 is now complete and includes Washington, Utah State, Boise State and Hawaii.


  96. brew808:

    Hi Garret - Welcome back! I hope you had a most successful trip.

    Yeah - our only hope is that the main scoreboard page on the ESPN website does show the game on ESPN GamePlan. I've got my fingers, toes, eyes, and signals all crossed... hoping for the best.... :shock: :? :shock:


  97. Garret:

    This BYU fan wrote an article that went out of its way to diss UH and the WAC in general. This article is about how BYU could win a national championship this season if a *lot* of things go there way.

    Boise State proved that non-BCS conference schools belong in the mix, while Hawaii proved not all undefeated teams are necessarily worthy. BYU is different. In fact, they really should be given an exemption from mid-major status. Unlike most of these lower-tier schools, the Cougars have tradition and more importantly cash that exceeds many of the major conferences schools.


  98. Garret:

    ESPN's E:60 will have a feature on Brian K!

    ESPN's E:60 will profile Hawaii's Brian Kajiyama, the First Family of Drag Racing and Missouri's Jeremy Maclin in the next episode.

    ESPN's prime-time newsmagazine E:60 will air Tuesday, September 30, at 7 p.m. ET, will include:

    The story of Brian Kajiyama, the University of Hawaii graduate assistant football coach afflicted with cerebral palsy, who was relieved of his role with the team this fall.

    When June Jones and Jeff Reinebold accepted coaching positions at SMU in Dallas, Brian, now a doctorate student, thought he would continue as the team's graduate assistant. All of that changed this fall when he was removed. E:60 correspondent Lisa Salters tells the story of Kajiyama's "Heart of a Warrior."


  99. Garret:

    Hi brew808!

    My trip went very, very well, but I am so tired! I'm used to getting 3 hours or less sleep, but this trip I had the combination of 3 hours or less sleep per night, 7am meetings (4am pacific time!), and 13+ hours of meetings or required seminars without a break. Any break I had in my schedule I used to meet with a company about potential collaborations.

    It was fun being interviewed for 80 minutes by the National Defense Magazine reporter--especially since I got a free breakfast out of it too! I'm guessing that reporter never interviewed someone before who was wearing an aloha-print shirt...but I was going straight from the interview to the airport and didn't want to wear a shirt and tie another day.

    I wonder if the problem for ESPN GamePlan is something silly like how the game is starting on Sunday East Coast Time. I know that one site I use had UH games as being *Sunday* games and not Saturday games when it started this late. I wish they could start UH games 10 minutes earlier until we move our clocks for daylight savings time so that the games could start before midnight Eastern Time.

    oh oh
    fresno lookin' good against ucla


  101. Garret:

    Feature article on RGM! It sounds like his teammates cannot catch the ball reliably, so he might be a valuable contributor soon!

    Ryan Grice-Mullen, a former University of Hawaii Warrior, is a shadow warrior with the B.C. Lions, though he may be ready to step out of obscurity.

    Despite the fact that few Lions fans have heard of him, the 22-year-old receiver who was added to the team's expanded practice roster earlier this month is turning some heads in practice, most notably head coach Wally Buono, director of player personnel Roy Shivers and receivers coach Jacques Chapdelaine.

    "We like what we've seen so far," Buono said Thursday. "Obviously, we'd like to extend the process. A lot will depend on what happens after this game [Saturday night against Hamilton at BC Place]."

    "I don't think I've seen him drop one ball since he's been here," Shivers chimes in.

    That last attribute is especially appealing, since the Lions' receiving corps is suffering from bouts of double-vision, the shakes and flare-ups of Nicolson Disease. That's in reference to Adam Nicolson, the Lions' first-round pick last year who was cut in late August because he kept dropping the ball.


  102. brew808:

    I'm watching the raisins vs. the 'ruins game at the Rose Bowl. The WAC team is ahead and playing well. The views of the stands show lots of red! I have to admit that the raisin nation really travels well - of course it doesn't take much incentive to get the heck out of the San Joaquin Valley.... :D :shock: :lol:


  103. Garret:

    I think that RGM could help BC stop this problem!

    By Buono's count -- and he keeps track of these things -- the Lions have dropped 15 catchable balls over the past two games. Those botched attempts have stalled drives and limited touchdown opportunities. Not only can't they latch their fingers onto the football, but the finger of blame can't be pointed at any one individual.

  105. Garret:

    UH basketball had a couple of big contributors from Canada, but I hadn't realized that UH had been recruiting a LB out of Canada! Credit transfer problems between Canada and UH might be a reason why schools don't look harder in Canada. Cordick would have joined UH before last season...so he would still be a Warrior today if there hadn't been the credit transfer problems between Canada and UH.

    It was difficult for linebacker Daniel Cordick to get college's attention out of high school in 2007. It wasn't because of lack of talent but more of a geographical issue. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Cordick wasn't exactly located in a popular recruiting area.

    Still, hard-hitting recruiting coach Jeff Reinebold somehow discovered Cordick. At the time, Reinebold was at the University of Hawaii.

    The Warriors were interested in the prospect playing in their program but in the end there was a credit transfer issue, from Canada to the States, which ultimately snagged the process.

    In his freshman season, Cordick racked up 12 sacks and lead his conference in that category. Just three games into the season, the standout linebacker is already averaging a sack per game.

    North Carolina began looking Cordick's way first and is continuing to be in talks. Then just a few days ago, Reinebold dialed up his old Canadian friend.

    Now at SMU, Reinebold and the Mustangs are looking for a linebacker in which Cordick could fit the mold with his 6-foot-3, 235-pound frame and 4.59 40 time. Cordick enjoyed hearing Reinebold's voice on the phone again.

    Speaking of RGM and the BC Lions, did you guys see this story about the Saskatchewan Roughriders Fans throwing full cans of beer at the Lions bench? :shock:
    Sask. Roughriders consider beer changes following ugly incident against B.C.

    B.C. defensive back Dante Marsh fired the ball into the stands, and Saskatchewan fans responded by pelting the Lions with full cans of beer.

    Another feature article about RGM.

    Ryan Grice-Mullen, a former University of Hawaii Warrior, is a shadow warrior with the B.C. Lions, though he may be ready to step out of obscurity.

    Skillern, who seemed to be progressing with each passing game, has regressed in the past two weeks because of a pair of lubricated hands. He'll be replaced for Saturday's game by Clarence Coleman, who is returning after rehabbing a strained calf muscle.

    "Receivers sometimes just have those days," Coleman says. "You want to catch them all, but sometimes you can't. When you make a drop you have to block it out and move on."

    [sigh] ...the Tsaiko-gate should approaching full blast and I'm sitting here watching the paint dry (over the stove area) and waiting for the laundry to finish. Haven't cleaned up so much since I was in boot camp :|

    Just kidding, the fire was small and the microwave looks like it still works...kinda. The real job was washing the dishes, cleaning what fell on the floor, watering mom's plants and recording a gazillion hours of Korean soap operas for her.

    Now, if the kitchen de-greasing operation is successful and I can get some good take-out food stashed away for Peaches' and mom's dinner, I might be able to make it to Genji's to watch the first half of the game before they arrive HNL at 7:50 PM tonight... :?

    Maui News feature on Jayson Rego!

    Rego, the 2004 state football player of the year for state champion Kamehameha Schools Oahu, is now a redshirt junior running back for the University of Hawaii.

    Three games into this season, the walk-on is also the Warriors' leading rusher.

    ''Not really, no - I don't think I would have believed anybody who told me I would be this team's leading rusher, but, I mean, I always had faith in myself,'' Rego said Wednesday between classes for his civil engineering major. ''I have been waiting my turn. It took a lot of perseverance. It is hard to explain, but it took a lot of hard work to keep pushing and never really thinking negative. Somewhere someone else has to have it worse than me. It can't really be that bad when I am playing D-I football - a lot of people would die to do that - so I really have no complaints.''

    One of his buddies from Iao, Weber State wide receiver Cody Nakamura, played in that game at Aloha Stadium three weeks ago. Nakamura had a three-touchdown game the week after facing UH.

    ''We spoke after the game - Cody is one of my friends,'' Rego said. ''I am glad to hear he is doing really well, too. He went to Iao Intermediate, just one of a lot of guys who did.''

    When Rego was playing for the Wailuku Rainbows with Nakamura and Rego's cousin, Kaluka Maiava, a current starting linebacker for top-ranked Southern California, he would have found difficulty envisioning that he would one day be the leading rusher for UH.

    ''No way, I would have never imagined that - it was like a dream of mine to come to UH and try to make a difference,'' Rego said. ''When everything started falling into place I was sort of, like, happy.''


  114. Garret:

    A lot of that exposure has come from Rego's dedication in the weight room. He can bench press 405 pounds and in fall camp he benched 225 pounds 27 times, a number that would be pretty good for an offensive lineman at the NFL combine. He also squats ''400 something'' pounds.

    ''Oh yes, I definitely thought about that - contributing this season,'' he said. ''I definitely took the offseason real serious, did a lot of extra things on top of the normal things I had to do. Workout days would be like a double day for me, gym twice a day to get an extra lift in, extra cardio, stuff like that. I also ate right to make sure that the food I was putting in my body was good.''

    That meant giving up rice and fast food.

    ''I focused more on fruits, vegetables and lean protein,'' he said. ''I missed rice a lot when I first gave it up - for, like, those first two months I missed it a lot.''

    With two siblings in college, Rego feels the pressure on his parents, Jayson Sr. and Evelyn.

    ''I think about a scholarship, but we don't talk about it as players, that is more the coaches' decision,'' Rego said. ''My mom and dad come to every game, they are my biggest fans. A scholarship would mean everything to me - it would mean a lot to help them out financially.''

    Rego is set to graduate next year with a civil engineering degree. Keeping up with his schoolwork can be tough when football practice starts at 7 a.m.

    ''I have got a lot on my plate,'' he said. ''I usually try to get in bed by 11 at night, but there are some nights when I don't get in bed until 2 or 3 a.m. and wake up, like, two or three hours later. I just had one of those nights Monday when I had a midterm in engineering ecomomics.''

    Feature article on Yonus Davis.

    The flash and the drive missing since the end of the 2006 season first reappeared at Nebraska on September 6. Running back Yonus Davis led San Jose State in rushing, gaining 58 yards on just seven carries. His 24-yard first-half run featured speed, elusiveness and strength. The 5-foot-7 senior broke five tackles along the way.

    Davis followed up the next week in Spartan Stadium rushing for 143 yards on 18 carries against San Diego State.


  116. Garret:

    Pauoa Boy,

    Sadly, this is not uncommon for ESPN GamePlan. Things were different the past 2 years since UH had a lot of media attention and brought in ratings with people wanting to see Colt and the rest of the offense...but before that I know that it was impossible to see many of the games on the mainland with ESPN GamePlan. I miss the days that Fox Sports would show the games...


  117. Pauoa Boy:

    Garret - For reals but they had the first couple of games on PPV here. Wonder why they would show the Fresno - UCLA game on PPV if was locally televised anyway??? Ahhh lose money...

    i guess i will get a dose of all five in few minutes.

    so, will we see funaki in an option offense today?

    go warriors!


  120. Garret:

    Pauoa Boy,

    You know what I think was funny? UCLA was worried about their attendance this week so they actually took out newspaper and radio ads in Fresno to convince Fresno fans to travel to see the game! UCLA players were *shocked* when they found out that their school was paying for ads to try to get more Fresno State fans at the game! I doubt that JD would pay for ads to convince BYU fans to come to the game at Aloha Stadium!

    You can see the ad at the link I put above. Here is another article about it:

    http://www.dailynews.com/sports/ci_10564244

    The radio ad, in part, said: "Bulldog fans. Don't miss your chance to see history. The Bulldogs are ranked in the top 25 and heading south this weekend looking for their first-ever win at the Rose Bowl against the Bruins of UCLA. ... We'll see you and the 'Dogs at the Rose Bowl."


  121. Garret:

    Natural reaction when hearing that UCLA was trying to get Fresno State fans to attend the game.

    Bruins coach Rick Neuheisel said he was not aware of the ads until he was asked about it after Wednesday's practice, and several players shook their heads in disbelief when the topic was broached.

    "They were inviting Fresno fans to the game?" UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter said.


  122. Pauoa Boy:

    Garret - That is funny...I know we playing SJSU today but I can feel it's going to get crazy in Fresno already...


  123. Garret:

    If you don't want to wait for the Brian K story to be out on TV, you can go to this link:

    http://www.espnmediazone.com/mediacenter/20080926_Kajiyama.html


  124. Garret:

    Pauoa Boy,

    Things are always crazy in Fresno, but with their hopes to win the WAC it will be even crazier! Didn't they miss something like 3 field goals and just lose by 3 points to Wisconsin? If they had been undefeated now, they would have a huge national spotlight!


  125. Committed Road Warrior:

    Wow! Upset city in college football today. Them Fresno folks probably gonna get plenty momentum when they head home to face UH next week.

    Anybody able to help?


  128. madeinhawaii:

    Garret,

    Those 'extra' Fresno fans may have been the 12th man that made the difference in the Fresno win. Very scrappy play on both sides of the field. Fresno will be near impossible to beat in their own stadium.

    But what happened to Florida?

    Michigan's game today kind of reflects what Warriors fans want. A flip-flop of offensive performance.


  129. HiFlyer:

    Re: Oceanic - I still don't know of anyone (ANYONE) that was successful in getting the Weber State game. I heard there were lots of excuses by OCTV - but sorry - no excuses allowed. I did pay to get the Wahine v-ball game last Sat. It worked well w/ a high quality feed. I don't know if they're ready and can handle the traffic for tonight's game. I still am hoping for ESPN GamePlan (and 360) to carry the game - even though most listing don't show it on the schedule. The cold brewski's sound good.... :D :shock: :lol:

    In college ball, no matter what position a team is in, the days of strutting around and thinking that you're all that, are definately over. Just when a team thinks they have arrived, someone knocks them off. We're going to see many more upsets this season. Isn't it just great?

    If our Warriors get their act together tonight, our season is FAR from over.

    wafan - I think my method is more effective. But if you have to follow SteveM's instructions, you might need a volunteer to help pat, slap, pound that sticker on the face to make sure of proper adhesion. Do you need any volunteers? Heheheh!!! :shock: :lol: :shock:


  207. HiFlyer:

    Yup AddahknowSports


  208. TChahng [태한민국]:

    I got eliminated in step 3.


  210. brew808:

    Oh yeah - got to scrub the face first w/ detergent, then TSP and don't hesitate to use Brillo pad or wire brush....Heheheh!!!! :D :shock: :lol:


  211. brew808:

    It's been one hour since Liz posted the group photo. Any guesses on whether AddahknowSports has finished feeding face? And if not - how many more plates has she put away? :D :shock: :lol:


  212. 99club:

    Must've been 'da shrimp, eh? :)

    Penn St. game's best one on right now. Ol' Joe Pa's team looking real good. They got screwed with the early rankings but things will even out for them in the end.


  213. brew808:

    Touchdown Nebraska on 88 yd punt return! Going for 2 pt PAT - no good.

    Va Tech. 28, Neb. 23, 7:52 4Q :shock:


  214. Tombo Ahi:

    rammer jammer is a really great song. woooooooot!


  215. Stephen Tsai:

    Ah, it's a nice day in Halawa.
    Bad news for UH. Kyle Reed showed up.


  216. brew808:

    Weber State came back to make the score look respectable -

    Weber State 21, #17 Utah 37, It looks like da Beast had 3 tackles! :D


  217. Stephen Tsai:

    It sounds like they brought back the JJ pregame music.


  218. brew808:

    ST - How was the T-gate? :D :shock: :lol:


  219. Ronnie:

    I was able to order the game through Oceanic... Let's see how the stream is during the game...


  220. Ronnie:

    Did Colt's parents make it to the T-gate?


  221. chawan_cut:

    i ate too much pizza
    i'd better not fall asleep before the game starts.


  222. brew808:

    Everybody head to Ronnie's place! Got sushi and champagne too! Gotto to put up with the non-stop cheering and hollering! :D :shock: :lol:


  223. brew808:

    Ronnie's - Are they showing anything on the Oceanic feed right now? :D :shock: :lol:


  224. Ronnie:

    Hi Brew! Yep, they are showing the PPV pre-game show. It's on the scout bowl now.

    I suggest people sign up now and not turn it off until after the game...


  225. brew808:

    Me.... I'm still hoping for the ESPN feed.... plus I'm cheap. $12 bucks is two plate lunches or a 12 pack of refreshments. :D :shock: :lol:


  226. Committed Road Warrior:

    After watching the top teams in college football get beat down today, time to switch to Warrior Time!

    Hopefully those who ordered the game through Oceanic will be able to watch it ok. Everything I've been hearing so far is that the Hawaiian Telcom service last year was better.

    I think this is the first game that Hawaii IPTV will be airing the game live through their newly-created web player. Typically they'd show it through the set-top TV box service, however that feed would be delayed until AFTER the game ended. I will update once the web-feed comes up.


  227. Stephen Tsai:

    I never made it to the tailgate.
    I dropped off my food at the office tailgate, then had to go home to shower. Then it was off to the game to make sure I got my socket.

    Allllright! Got the house restored, Chinese take-out din-din on the table, and now heading out to the nabeyaki udon place to watch what I can of the game before Peaches lands! :)


  231. FloridaTed:

    So far, great. The oceanic feed is excellent, the screen is 13 inches and very clear and steady. If it stays that way, I'm very pleased.

    GO, WARRIORS !!!


  232. Committed Road Warrior:

    Good to hear that about the Oceanic feed, FloridaTed.

    So for those wanting to watch the game through ESPN, is the game going to be on Gameplan, ESPN360, both, or neither? It's been all back and forth the entire week, so kind of hard to keep track with that.


  233. FloridaTed:

    brew808,

    I bought the feed through Hawaiiathletics website, went real smooth. Make sure you scrool terms and conditions and mark it as agreed. I'm watching the pre-game show and so far it's flawless. Go for it.


  234. Pauoa Boy:

    Auryte this Oceanic stream better not get hammajangz on me I konna be pissed... :smile:


  235. Ronnie:

    Committed Road Warrior - I did not see it as part of the "Upcoming" games on ESPN360 like I saw the Weber St. game a few weeks ago.


  236. Pauoa Boy:

    So far so good, better stay laddis for the whole game...


  237. Pauoa Boy:

  244. Committed Road Warrior:

    As we look forward to the start of tonight's game:

    Reno leads Vegas at the half, 28-20
    After leading 3/4s of the game, NMSU falls to UNM, 35-24


  245. Pauoa Boy:

    Nice the feed so far, pretty clear...


  246. duffer:

    Roger!


  247. Pauoa Boy:

    Inoke starting??? How come they saying Graunke...regardless lets go boys put the pedal down, full throttle the whole game boys...


  248. Ronnie:

    duffer - i checked my settings and it is set to 1280x800.

    Pauoa Boy - no need filter next week, we won't be on the blog :D


  249. Committed Road Warrior:

    Hawaii IPTV feed looks great, albeit a little small in size with 480 x 320 resolution. Blowing the feed up to full screen makes the quality acceptable (for me, that is).

    Feed itself is consistent and steady, no cutting in or out yet. Hopefully it will stay this way!


  250. duffer:

    Thanks Ronnie.............


  251. Pauoa Boy:

    Aunty Ronnie - Fo shua...I just saying though haha

    C'mon Hawaii what da heo the stadium get to many empty patches, get your arses to the dayum game!!!

    Auryte good job special teams nice tackle Spencer Smith


  286. wafan:

    Eh?

    Kickoff team made a good stop! Is this where we turn the corner?


  287. Ronnie:

    YEE HAW!!!! Special Teams!!! Spence Smith got him on the 18!

    Then a false start = way to go 12th man!


  288. Committed Road Warrior:

    Choke penalties for being so early in the game


  289. not far away anymore:

    Come on big D.


  290. Committed Road Warrior:

    NYUH, I got IPTV running on Windows. So far so good!


  291. wafan:

    SteveM . . .

    Thank you for the directions.

    It will be on my van tomorrow morning after it thaws out. HA!

    Does anyone have any coverage of the Damien/Iolani game?


  292. Ronnie:

    NYUH - did you subscribe to IPTV? Or is it free like ESPN360?


  293. Pauoa Boy:

    Going be one good chess match game...Coach Tomey ate his TRIX cereal, silly rabbit...c'mon Coach Mack give em hell make em choke...


  294. Ronnie:

    Yee Haw!!! Way to stop them!


  295. Pauoa Boy:

    Yes...play wit da passion baby...lick em BIG D


  296. Committed Road Warrior:

    WTH was that with only 10 guys on the last ST's play?


  297. not far away anymore:

    Nice big grab by Aaron Bain. 1st down.


  298. Pauoa Boy:

    woohoo nice pass Funaki...


  299. Committed Road Warrior:

    Nice catch Yoda!


  300. wafan:

    yeah O!!!


  301. Committed Road Warrior:

    Did that shovel pass actually work?


  302. Pauoa Boy:

    auryte lets go offense take it to da hale


  303. chawan_cut:

    the uh website has a link to this site that is kinda like all the live game trackers

    http://www.sidearmstats.com/hawaii/football/


  304. Pauoa Boy:

    LETS GO STEINY DAYUMIT!!!


  305. wafan:

    Take a close look at Curveball. I think he looks like one of the later Curly's.


  306. Pauoa Boy:

    Good way to pin em deep Grasso...lets go Big D lets go...


  307. not far away anymore:

    I'm surprised we haven't seen David Farmer in there yet. Maybe they have a different offensive package with Graunke and Farmer that just airs it out the whole time. Or, maybe Farmer is still hurt.

    Punt UH. 1st and 10 for SJSU inside their 5 yard line.


  308. duffer:

    Ronnie,

    ESPN360 is free????????????


  309. Committed Road Warrior:

    Good job by Grasso and STs to pin SJSU inside their own 5.

    Steinhoff got burned by that DE on that 3rd and long play.


  310. chawan_cut:

    make some noise aloha stadium!


  311. chawan_cut:

    duffer,
    espn360: thats only if your area has it.


  312. Ronnie:

    duffer - if your internet provider carries it, it's free in the US. It is really pretty cool because they keep games on for at least a week so you can watch replays. And it shows all games on ESPN, not just the gameplan games.


  313. hawnstln:

    Oceanic is doing well this week! Their QB blew that one!


  314. Pauoa Boy:

    good job D lets go special teams


  315. Ronnie:

    Big bummer!!! intercepted.


  316. not far away anymore:

    Interception SJSU. Come on Funaki. We can't be turning over the ball like that.


  317. hawnstln:

    bad series for our O. Off sides, holding penalty, (have to punt) holding on the punt return and then an interception. No rythym. Mistakes. No success.


  318. Pauoa Boy:

    Das right Adam...chee huuu baby


  319. not far away anymore:

    Good thing the defense is playing inspired so far. Except for getting beat on the trick play, they have been pretty lights out.


  320. Ronnie:

    Way to go big D!!! Adam is the man!

    another hit behind the line!


  321. Committed Road Warrior:

    Jim Leahey's speech and intonation is like he's waiting for Tyler to enter the game.


  322. hawnstln:

    Nice run, but note how the SJ tacklers are always slapping at the ball. Need to be very careful holding on to the rock.


  323. Ronnie:

    Special Teams has really stepped up this week. The D is it's normal bad self. I think the offense will step up to. I'm hopeful that by next week, all 3 phases will be there for all 4 quarters!


  324. Pauoa Boy:

    No worry Funaki Geff um... just gotta stay relaxed bruddah little bit too amped right now...settle down lil bit and work the offense San Jose not doing nuttin on D...the interception was nuttin...lets go boys!!!


  325. Ronnie:

    Oh what a block for some yards after catch!


  326. Pauoa Boy:

    Auryte Bain...stepping it up tonight baby...good job!!!


  327. not far away anymore:

    Nice 22 yard run by Pilares down to the 2 yard line.


  328. Pauoa Boy:

    Pilares is the man Baby auryte...das my man right dea!!!


  329. Ronnie:

    Yee Haw!!! down to the 2 yard line on a shovel pass!


  330. not far away anymore:

    TD Pilares


  331. duffer:

    Auryte!


  332. Ronnie:

    Another TD for Pilares!

    Way to go Warriors!!!


  333. Committed Road Warrior:

    TD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  334. Pauoa Boy:

    Chee Huu...PILARES IS TEARING CHIT UP!!!

    Eh I seen Farmer...good to have you back bruddah


  335. chawan_cut:

    2 rushing tds???? what's going on here! heh.


  336. wafan:

    Yeah! Pilares!!!


  337. LizKauai (iPhone):

    looking GREAT!
    14-7 Warriors!


  338. Ronnie:

    I like how the student section looked like they were getting into it when the band played Hawai'i 5-0.


  339. wafan:

    When was the last time the Warriors had 2 RUSHING and 0 passing td's in a single game?


  340. bighilofan2:

    I am cautiously optomistic.

    yeeeeeeEEEEEEEEE

    HAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW!


  341. Ronnie:

    great kickoff coverage!!!


  342. not far away anymore:

    Kickoff unit is looking a lot better so far tonight.


  343. duffer:

    Kick coverage is much better this game!


  344. Ronnie:

    Oh oh. #8 is down for SJSU. He's a good receiver. I hope it's not serious.


  345. Pauoa Boy:

    DEFENSE IS PLAYING HUGE SO FAR...DAS HOW BOYS LAY DA SMACK DOWN!!!


  346. hawnstln:

    Ronnie, you're right. S teams looks much better. I just sent a note to Oceanic suggesting that they show the UH section/fans during the game breaks. If you agree, send them a note too.


  347. not far away anymore:

    Nice stop again big D.


  348. Ronnie:

    This is what we have been waiting for!!!

    Way to go WARRIORS!


  349. Ronnie:

    hawnstln - that's a great idea. I'll send one too.


  350. not far away anymore:

    I think we need to have Lane or Mouton back there returning punts. Washington dances around too much. If not let's give Javonte Taylor a chance.


  351. Pauoa Boy:

    Lets go boys no shoot yourselves in the foot with dayum penalties...play with passion but play smart boys lets go!!!


  352. Committed Road Warrior:

    Nice to see Farmer back in action!


  353. Ronnie:

    50 yd punt. not bad. let's go big D!


  354. not far away anymore:

    How do we call a run by Farmer on 3rd and 19? Talk about conservative play calling.


  355. chawan_cut:

    nice punt to make up for all these stupid penalties. just a little too excited over there.


  356. hawnstln:

    Mistake after mistake! Its killing us on our offense drives.


  357. Committed Road Warrior:

    What's with the band still playing during the play?


  358. duffer:

    Face mask...big Break


  359. Pauoa Boy:

    ahh lets go dowling...


  360. Ronnie:

    CRR - I wondered the same thing about the band.


  361. Pauoa Boy:

    nice to see Rocky and Fale on the field lets go boys!


  362. Pauoa Boy:

    nice to see Rocky and Fale on the field lets go boys!


  363. not far away anymore:

    Alright Mouton. Nice sack.


  364. Ronnie:

    SACK!!!


  365. duffer:

    Auryte Mouton


  366. not far away anymore:

    Good stop again big D.


  367. Pauoa Boy:

    BIG D BABY I LOVE IT!!!


  368. not far away anymore:

    Libre back into the lineup.


  369. Ronnie:

    hey, Pollard is in. just goes to show what happens when you play well in the scout bowl.


  370. not far away anymore:

    Bain is having a good game tonight.


  371. duffer:

    Bain makes another catch


  372. hawnstln:

    Bain is having a good game ... same as Fonoti on D.


  373. Pauoa Boy:

    BAIN LOOKING SOLID TONIGHT!!!


  374. Ronnie:

    nice catch for Pollard!


  375. duffer:

    Good scramble Inoki


  376. Pauoa Boy:

  379. not far away anymore:

    Nice run Funaki.


  380. Pauoa Boy:

    Lets go OLINE move your feet...


  381. duffer:

    Let's go offense!


  382. hawnstln:

    2 in a row - mistakes by the O line!!


  383. LizKauai (iPhone):

    dammit! They have to shut up those drums when we are on offense!!!


  384. Ronnie:

    I hear you there Liz.


  385. not far away anymore:

    That Hawaii Self Storage commercial is awesome. A bunch of safes doing the Ha'a in UH helmets. That is classic.


  386. Pauoa Boy:

    Try go TD...but if no can get close let Kelly redeem himself go into the half up by 10...


  387. chawan_cut:

    we shouldn't have to be running for our lives. either the o-line isn't doing it or the d-line is too good. we're lucky funaki can scramble. he should be sitting in the pocket looking for the open WRs.


  388. Ronnie:

    Come on Dan!!! You can do it!


  389. Pauoa Boy:

    Here we go Kelly...Easeh Money baby...


  390. hawnstln:

    I predict the Iceman makes this one. Count me as a Dan Kelly fan.


  391. Ronnie:

    Yee Haw Dan!!!


  392. not far away anymore:

    Malcolm Lane is injured. Return doubtful. Not good. Nice kick Iceman. Hawaii up 17-7


  393. Pauoa Boy:

    Auryte Iceman is back in akshon...


  394. Pauoa Boy:

    Auryte Iceman is back in akshon...


  395. chawan_cut:

    that is the Iceman we all know and love.
    here's to my LAME brother out there!


  396. Pauoa Boy:

    lets go special teams no dumb play


  397. 99club:

    Yesss! Way to go Dan! 17-7 Hawaii.


  398. duffer:

    Liz,

    Send my ALOHA to Fred and Lorna! :-)


  399. Pauoa Boy:

    Lets Go D BIG STOP BEFORE HALF!!!


  400. LizKauai (iPhone):

    Ronnie - one guy near us was trying to start a wave when we were on offense - we had to tell him to wait til we were on Dee! Sheesh!

    What's really bad- I'm so stuffed from the T-gate but there is the smell of something cooking in garlic that is making me feel hungry again!


  401. NYUH:

  408. 99club:

    On 1420 they're talking about Tomey thinkin' that Tyler was goin' to start. Psyche! But they then said Tyler might get some time in the 2d half. Heh, if no need, no need. Rest up while you can.

  413. Ronnie:

  415. 99club:

    Nevada crushed UNLV only 1 week after UNLV beat then #15 AZ St. in OT. Talk about a letdown game for UNLV! Final: 49-27.


  416. hawnstln:

    Those Bulldog fans are going to be jacked up after their win today over UCLA! C U at the 5.5 hour tailgate!!

  418. Committed Road Warrior:

    Start of the Second Half.


  419. Ronnie:

    Yikes! Davis pushed his own player out of the way...


  420. Ronnie:

  440. Pauoa Boy:

    C'mon boys no need get stupid now!!!


  441. LizKauai (iPhone):

    GGma. Dee holding tough. Sjsu is trying tricky stuff. The intensity in the stadium is very good and the fans re making a LOT of noise. We got the ball on downs on our 16 but are making too many booboos and getting penalties.


  442. Pauoa Boy:

    Estes, play smart dummeh...good to get nawts but no need hurt the team...


  443. hawnstln:

    20 yards on the O line ..... at least one was on the O line again.


  444. Ronnie:

    Coach Smith has to talk to his boys... It seems like they are letting SJSU get to them.


  445. chawan_cut:

    godfunnit
    control yourself


  446. Pauoa Boy:

    Lets go Offense play with poise dayumit, lets get it down the field and score on these mofos!!!


  447. LizKauai (iPhone):

    GGma who is your son?


  448. Ronnie:

  449. Bulla:

    aloha brew 808,

    mahalo for the props for the beast and weber state. game was ok, i didn't see much from Utah for being ranked 17 in the country. but talk about feeling like the christians vs. the lions in a coliseum....more red shirts than ideas in the stadium. 49,700 at the game, lotta red, felt like i was sitting in a room full of rotten ume, haha

    63 rows....how do i know, we were in row 62, above the cloud line, had 2 pigeons eating 4 rows below us, haha. very good band, and very loud and supportive fans.

    i was with 'the hawaiians' in the upper rows, had to start my cheer 'a'ole ha'oles', loud and proud!!! :)

    let's go Warriors and let's get that WIN!!!


  450. hawnstln:

    That is our best O play. Funaki off the edge.


  451. bighilofan2:

    Go Warriors!!!

    ahem, i waved my bannah at da tv and hocus pocus an da 4th down incomplete.

    yeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!


  452. chawan_cut:

    wow,
    was that a play action play right there?


  453. Ronnie:

    Once again Funaki makes it happen. Great pickup of the first down.

    Now it's 2nd and 8.


  454. Pauoa Boy:

    What happened to my man Pilares...give him the frikkin ball...


  455. Pauoa Boy:

    Oline block dayumit!!!!!!!


  456. Ronnie:

    Liz - the fans were WAY too loud during that 3rd down play.


  457. chawan_cut:

    i can hear vili doing his stupid yell crap in the background. someone go and smack him and tell him we're on offense.


  458. LizKauai (iPhone):

    3rd and 8
    Inc
    Penalty offside on Sjsu
    1st down in spite of Vili leading cheers in the endzone. Grrr.
    Another penalty on the offense.


  459. 99club:

    1420 says Mouton is questionable to return to the game. They were icing his shoulder on the sideline and he couldn't raise his arm. That's a tough one.


  460. LizKauai (iPhone):

    inoke. Is running for his life. Argh we are 3 and 11.
    Long pass to Bain is Inc. Punting.


  461. Ronnie:

    That was a great punt to pin SJSU in their own 5


  462. LizKauai (iPhone):

    ST has a great punt stop on the SJSU 4!


  463. chawan_cut:

    i thought vili's sons play football. shouldn't he know when to yell and not yell? he's been doing the same stupid things for the last how many years.


  464. hawnstln:

    I agree, where is Pilares? and what ever happened to our passing game? Funaki is not getting protection and when he does throw it is usually way short. Is he hurt?


  465. not far away anymore:

    It's a good thing the Defense and ST have been doing so well. The offense is still out of sync. We need a couple more scores for insurance.


  466. LizKauai (iPhone):

    SJSU is marching. Yikes. For there 4 to their 40


  467. hawnstln:

    If I know Tomey, he is going to try to run this down our throat..


  468. Pauoa Boy:

    C'mon stop playing like dayum idiots...POISE, POISE, POISE!!!


  469. Bulla:

    more penalties, more personal fouls,

    c'mon warriors


  470. 99club:

    Damn personal fouls! C'mon, play smart!


  471. LizKauai (iPhone):

    eeks another personal foul.


  472. not far away anymore:

    What is up with all of the personal fouls? That has to be about the 5th personal foul on us this game.


  473. Ronnie:

    What is up with this?!

    Hawai'i has 11 penalties... The personal foul penalties are killing us.


  474. duffer:

    Come D stop em here


  475. duffer:

    Auryte D

    Run it back!


  476. not far away anymore:

    Defense makes another stop. 4th down even though we got pretty lucky because that receiver was open.


  477. chawan_cut:

    wow, is that short guy a coach?


  478. LizKauai (iPhone):

    SJSU is punting. Fair catch on the 20.


  479. 99club:

    Robert K. on 1420 RE: the personal fouls. "Young men will be running." Laps baby, laps.


  480. Pauoa Boy:

    C'mon Offense, lets get a score...


  481. duffer:

    Let's go offense!

    Score some points!


  482. Pauoa Boy:

    WHERE IS PILARES, give him the frikkin ball!!!...please :smile:


  483. Ronnie:

    This is a llooonnnggg 3rd quarter.

    So, are we being that undisciplined or are the refs calling personal fouls every time we breath too hard? After all, this IS football not ping pong...


  484. duffer:

    Send Pride, Chawan_Cut and Kazz in the game


  485. Bulla:

    offense needs a drive....from the 20, let's roll! funaki gotta make it happen, no excuses....let's go boyz.

    keeper,no pass, incomplete...make it happen


  486. Pauoa Boy:

    Dayumit Pollard that was Touchdown baby dang...


  487. 99club:

    Dang! Almost.


  488. Bulla:

    ronnie,

  489. not far away anymore:

    Ronnie, we're being undisciplined. Fumble Funaki.


  490. chawan_cut:

    dammit funaki isn't doing it.


  491. duffer:

    Goal Line Stand


  492. Pauoa Boy:

  495. Bulla:

    merry christmas from Warriors to SJSU


  496. chawan_cut:

    i think graunke even at not full strength will make better decisions than funaki.


  497. Pauoa Boy:

    BIG STOP D!!!


  498. Ronnie:

    one more time for the D.

    1st and goal on the 8 for SJSU.


  499. Bulla:

    FUMBLE STANDS....D is being tested....big time, watch out for the penalties.......let's go


  500. not far away anymore:

    Come on D. Let's get it back. That is the only thing our D hasn't done this year; get turnovers.


  501. brew808:

    I will be blunt!

    This is one of the most undisciplined teams ever - especial the OL!

    Funaki is NOT a D1 QB. Maybe if this was the option offense like Navy runs, but not in the R&S, or Pro-style offense. He has no arm strength, no touch, poor footwork.

    I simply do not understand lining up in the shot-gun when it's 3rd and less
    than a yard!

    The UH coaching staff remains unproven.

    Leahey continues to make errors - misidentified plays and players, missed calls, phantom calls, etc. It's time Leahey.

    IMHO :twisted: :shock: :(


  502. Ronnie:

    NOW is the time for the drums!


  503. not far away anymore:

    TD SJSU.


  504. not far away anymore:

    TD SJSU.


  505. LizKauai (iPhone):

    yikes. Offense is off. Mebbe time to go to the bathroom.
    Ok! False start. Sjsu back to their 13. Gets 3. 2 new nds goal brokeem by Mouton
    Hike wide open received. Td sjsu pat good.
    17-14 uh


  506. not far away anymore:

    I apologize for all of these double posts. I don't know why it keeps doing that.


  507. duffer:

    Run the option from under the center!


  508. Pauoa Boy:

    Ahhh...lets go boys, 4th quarter, here we go...

    PROTECT DA HOUSE!!!


  509. chawan_cut:

    dammit.


  510. Bulla:

    Higgins 24-30 for 303 yds and 3 TD against the #3 defense in the country tonight!

    GO WILDCATS


  511. chawan_cut:

    funaki, make it up right here.


  512. not far away anymore:

    Fumble Pollard. SJSU gets the ball back again.


  513. LizKauai (iPhone):

    Mouton on the KO is back to their 26. Fumble!
    Sheesh. End of 3Q


  514. chawan_cut:

    DAMMMMMIITTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  515. Ronnie:

    Another fumble!


  516. duffer:

    Let's go WARRIORS!!!!!


  517. Pauoa Boy:

    WOW...lets go boys football is 4 quarters not 3!!! Where the hell is Pilares...Coach put him back in and give him the ball!!!


  518. bighilofan2:

    come on offense. do your part. GET YOUR INTO THE GAME, gunfunit!

    GO WARRIORS!!!


  519. Ronnie:

    The offense looked good in the first quarter, but the penalties really hurt us. Now they have to let the D get the ball back, then calm down, play with poise and put points on the board!


  520. duffer:

    The Defense is on the field toooo long


  521. hawnstln:

    Reference my previous note, they are ripping at the ball. = fumbles. Gotta take care of the ball. where are the f**** offense coaches?


  522. LizKauai (iPhone):

    sjsu is starting to make errors. False start.
    Inc pass (Lucky, he was open) comp.
    1st and 10 on our 30. Cmon dee!


  523. Ronnie:

    Oh no! Adam Leonard is down!


  524. LizKauai (iPhone):

    someone is down. Argh Adam leonard


  525. Pauoa Boy:

    Defense needs to save the offenses arse once again...lets go boys!!!


  526. brew808:

    SJSU is really a lousy team... and UH is playing right down to their level! :twisted:


  527. LizKauai (iPhone):

    here comes the WAVE


  528. chawan_cut:

    Now only if our defense can score for our offense.


  529. jp:

    Running laps ... maybe take out of the game and give someone else a chance. Too many unnecessary 15 yard penalties. Put some kids in that are disciplined and want to win.


  530. Committed Road Warrior:

    This game is starting to get sloppy.

    Can't believe the D is gonna have to bail our O out.....once again.


  531. not far away anymore:

    Defense makes the big stop and SJSU misses the FG.


  532. 99club:

    Wide left! Hee hee. Dodged 'da bullet.


  533. LizKauai (iPhone):

    Throw to the zebra fg no good we need to score NOW!


  534. Pauoa Boy:

    Lets go O drive, protect the ball, give the defense some help!!!


  535. jp:

    Can we trade all of our QBs for Cameron Higgins? :)


  536. LizKauai (iPhone):

    shut up the drums!!!


  537. jp:

    One nice sustained drive would be good ...


  538. hawnstln:

    HELP!!!!!!!


  539. not far away anymore:

    Funaki intercepted again on a very bad pass.


  540. Ronnie:

    another int. that makes 3 for a total of 5 turnovers.


  541. Pauoa Boy:

    Why Funaki, Why...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!


  542. chawan_cut:

    put in graunke.


  543. LizKauai (iPhone):

    another int. A lot of booing


  544. bighilofan2:

    we can still save ourselves if we act right now.


  545. Committed Road Warrior:

    Will we see Graunke come and save the game?


  546. Bulla:

    TURNOVERS ARE KILLING US


  547. duffer:

    Ryan Mouton....Graunke warming up!


  548. not far away anymore:

    Mouton is having a very good game.


  549. jp:

    We were really spoiled with Rolo, Timmy and Colt. Duh!


  550. Pauoa Boy:

    Lets go Offense get your chit together, Funaki get your head out dayumit!!! You guys are killing me!!!


  551. Bulla:

    GRAUNKE IS WARMING UP, FUNAKI WILL BE DONE


  552. jp:

    Sorry I forgot Dan Robinson ... that's in the JJ era ...


  553. LizKauai (iPhone):

    the dee is working OT wish they would just getba dee SCORE already!
    Graunke is warming up.
    Curveball is a good spotter.


  554. duffer:

    the DEFENSE IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!


  555. brew808:

    I'll say it again...

    Funaki is NOT a D1 QB. No arm strength, no touch, poor footwork. He never looks off his receiver. That last INT was tossed flat-footed. And this isn't the only game that he has simply not performed! :twisted: :x :shock:


  556. Pauoa Boy:

    Mouton is beastin this game...

    Is Pilares hurt or something, where the hell is he...he is our playmaker on offense he needs the dayum ball and to be in the game!!!


  557. Bulla:

    How much running does it take to 'reprogram' overly aggressive guys? hard on defense to hold up, but to be so blatant is another thing altogether


  558. not far away anymore:

    SJSU makes a 50 yard FG. It's all tied up.


  559. bighilofan2:

    This is the defining moment for our offensive coaching staff this year. right here. right now.

    Go Warriors!!!!


  560. Committed Road Warrior:

    Tied game.


  561. Bulla:

    17-17, oh boy.

    how many guys are going to call for Mack's head on Monday? TG coming in to save the day? whew, pretty lean in qb's

    BC talking about TG saving the game against Weber State, c'mon, Weber State is a D1AA, wow


  562. not far away anymore:

    Graunke's in


  563. expat:

    If we give SJSU enough chances with good enough field position they might figure out a way to beat us. What do you think?


  564. Committed Road Warrior:

    Graunke in.


  565. Pauoa Boy:

    Here we go Tyler, it's your time to save our arse and shine again...


  566. Committed Road Warrior:

    While I think it's great that we have the other teams thinking and having to prepare for two QBs when they come to face us, it pains me when we ACTUALLY HAVE TO use both of those QBs.


  567. chawan_cut:

    a passing first down!


  568. hawnstln:

    O=line picked up that blitze well.


  569. brew808:

    They can (should) run against SJSU. Pilares and Libre had success earlier....mix in some passes... but don't forget the run! :x


  570. chawan_cut:

    quick release
    quick release


  571. duffer:

    This is a passing offense! No offense to Inoke!


  572. chawan_cut:

  574. Pauoa Boy:

    WOW...what a slam Steiny chee huu!!! hahaha


  575. bighilofan2:

    Our Warriors are scrapping, for sure!


  576. Committed Road Warrior:

    Agreed chawan_cut. That was a blatant penalty on the O-Lineman.


  577. Pauoa Boy:

    I mean Kia haha

  591. Committed Road Warrior:

    Long way to go down the field for the game-winning score.

    We keep playing schizophrenically like this and it's gonna be a long WAC season.


  592. duffer:

    LET'S GO WARRIORS!!!!!

  593. not far away anymore:

    Dang it. Interception SJSU.


  594. Ronnie:

    so, 6 turnovers it is...


  595. Committed Road Warrior:

  596. Pauoa Boy:

  605. chawan_cut:

    ok, this is up to tyler now


  606. LasCruces:

    6 Turnovers? You cannot win like that. Great defense though...


  607. Ronnie:

    6 turnovers are ok if they are in the 1st half and you are still leading - or the other team has a bunch as well, but in this game...


  608. LasCruces:

    Game over man... Crap, what a loss. Hawaii is so much better then this...


  609. duffer:

    Six sacks, six turnovers, hard to beat!


  610. not far away anymore:

    48 hour rule starts now...

    and even though it doesn't look like it, we can still win the WAC and win a bowl game. We just have to believe!


  616. chawan_cut:

    anyone know a kahuna or priest that can bless this team?


  617. LasCruces:

    Oh well, and it doesnt get better next week in Fresno. Gonna get killed...


  618. hawnstln:

    dis is one ugly game. C U at Fresno next week.


  619. duffer:

    ONE SNAP AND CLEAR....FRESNO NEXT WEEK!


  620. brew808:

    If a player is not ready to go - then he should be playing. The coaches end up just fooling themselves. Note the emphasis on FOOL! :twisted: :shock: :twisted:


  621. bighilofan2:

    our offensive coaches gave away the game!

    au'we. no discipline. the way we're losing really sucks.


  622. Committed Road Warrior:

    Does anyone know the announced attendance for tonight's game?


  623. LasCruces:

    Chawan, I think this football team needs an exorcism....


  624. LizKauai (iPhone):

    TO with 51 secs left.
    False start 3rd down


  625. Hoohiki:

    That's the game!!! If you were the coaches what do you tell the team? They must be sick to have lost this game. I feel bad for Coach Mack. Just too many turnovers, too many penalties...the O-line missing assignment, the secondary just a tad bit slow...The Special teams played much better this game. The defense played hard...The offense sputtered again! The penalties and turnovers just killed us!! And the next game is against Fresno!


  626. Pauoa Boy:

    I'm still going be in Fresno supporting this team but dayumit this is frustrating!!! One thing I'm extremely pissed about is where the hell did Pilares go? He better be hurt cause if not WOW, Gerke is frikkin dumb! HEY COACH PILARES IS YOUR BEST RB AND OFFENSIVE PLAYMAKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  627. brew808:

    Good night to my Tsaiko friends! Embarrassing & humiliating night for UH Football! :x :? :(


  628. bighilofan2:

    I understand the pulling Inoke decision. I do not understand putting Tyler in the game, at all. The coaches were just fooling themselves. I agree with that 100%.


  629. Anon:

    Not playing like WAC champions tonight.


  630. Ronnie:

    wow. coach mack doen't look very happy....


  631. chawan_cut:

    ok, here's the true test.
    who will stick with the team for the rest of the season.


  632. LizKauai (iPhone):

    1 sec on the clock. One more play. Pau


  633. not far away anymore:

    I don't know how much we have in the stands this week, but I can tell you that the next home game will have a lot less fans in the stands. Just the way our fair weather fans work. We gave that game away.


  634. Ronnie:

    chawan - the Tsaikos will be there.

    7 down.
    8 UP!


  635. LasCruces:

    I will Chawan... Even though it looks rough, especially at Fresno and Boise, I will be listening intently every time my boys take the field...

    GO WARRIORS!!!!


  636. jp:

    Wow this was after a bye week ... no discipline ... no execution on O ... D is living up to expectation and carried the load tonight ... if not for the D the score would have been worse.

    What happened to Pilares?


  637. NYUH:

    Goodbye Funaki. Time to train up the JCs.


  638. Pauoa Boy:

    As much as I want this team to win and all that...I have watched every game so far and although I believe we can still have a winning season, I have hit reality. Reality tells me this team will struggle to make a bowl game and will be very lucky if they do. It also tells me, with this offense and merry-go-QB system we have going, it is going to equate to a lot of frustrating games and a loooonnnggggg season! I BELIEVE but dayumit show me something Warriors!!! Dig Deep, See you boys in Fresno! I will bring my jersey and some pads if I need to jump on that dayum field!!!


  639. Ronnie:

    I really hope they figure out how to score points...

    The penalties and turnovers have got to stop. Even with the turnovers, we would have been good if we didn't give them over 110 yards in penalties - especially when most of them were personal foul penalty yards.

    Our defense was great! And special teams were great! The time is now for the offense to step up! If we play the game we are capable of, Fresno goes down. If we play like tonight, it will be a long night.


  640. Committed Road Warrior:

    Box Stats:

    Funaki: 16-27 173yds 0 TD 3 INT
    Graunke: 5-9 52 yds 0 TD 1 INT

    Rushing-
    Pilares: 3 car 42yds 2 TD
    Libre: 12car 56yds

    Receiving-
    Bain: 6cat 94yds
    Salas: 3cat 34yds


  641. LasCruces:

    Pauoa, this team might have won its only game of the season already. It is gonna be one LOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGG year......


  642. Hoohiki:

    Next time let Rego play more!! Alternate with Pilares. I'm sure Libre is great but if he only gains 1 or 2 yards, get another guy in there. I can predict where he's gonna run when he touches the ball. How many sacks did they have against us? O-line come on...missed assignments, personal fouls...Steep learning curve..you can improve with each game coming up. Start with Fresno! Man, this gonna be a tough year!!!
    On a brighter note, the Wahine VB are doing well! I think they found their missing pieces in Herring and Farrell.


  643. Garret:

    Don't give up on the team! Don't stop supporting the team! I hope that there is a good crowd for the next game at Aloha Stadium...the team needs the fans more than ever.

    I don't have much to comment on the game--instead of the 48 hour rule, I think I'm going to have the 30 minute rule and try to purge the game from my mind. A few things:

    Lots of injuries. I'm guessing Pilares was hurt. Lots of other players definitely are hurt. Tyler doesn't seem ready to play.

    The coaches did a great job with fixing up the special teams. That was a huge improvement from the previous 3 games--if the special teams had been like they were against Florida, Oregon State, or even Weber State, then SJSU would have won much easier.

    The OL has problems. However, remember that SJSU has an *excellent* DL! They rushed the passer well against excellent competition, so part of the problem with the protection was that SJSU was really good.

    Penalties killed the team and it can be argued that penalties cost UH the game. That is sad, especially if emotions get out of control and the opponent gets free yardage that changes the game.


  644. Pauoa Boy:

    Hmmm...I going sleep already too frustrating to talk about this game anymore...

    No worry I will always BLEED WARRIOR GREEN BLOOD and love this team for life!!!


  645. LasCruces:

    Penalties, no matter how you state it, shows poor coaching....


  646. Hoohiki:

    I'm not overlooking this year beause we've still got a ways to go...but looking ahead to next year...with alot of seniors graduating who are our prime time players, we're gonna have a lot of newbies; talented but newbies. I hope they can fill the shoes or better. Can't wait to see Paipai and all our local boys. Stutzman will probably contribute right away.


  647. Garret:

    Amazing that the #1, #4, #9, #16, #20, and #23 teams this week lost to unranked teams! The #3 team also lost.

    With this type of crazy stuff happening, remember that UH has a chance at Fresno State no matter how negative the feeling may be right now.


  648. Hoohiki:

    Yeah...penalties, especially the personal fouls shows no discipline..The coaches didn't seem to be able to control the team and get them to focus.
    They must have a sports psychologist to get them in the proper mind set for the games.


  649. Garret:

    When Libre replaced Pilares it was announced to the press that Pilares' return was questionable...so he was injured.


  650. Hoohiki:

    Injuries after injuries...just can't catch a break (no pun intended). Imagine Soares just about to come back from his gastroc tear when he sprains his ankle. Adam Leanord was down too. Leon Wright-Jackson appeared kind of gimpy too. Mel DeLaura's got his work cut out for him!!


  651. Garret:

    I guess we should also give our congratulations to Coach Tomey and his coaching staff. That trick play for SJSU's first TD was huge--if you take that play away, UH dominated the first half! Without that single play, UH would have had all the momentum and the game could have been put away in the first half.

    I grew up watching Tomey's teams pull off trick play after trick play. Unfortunately, this time it was against UH. Tomey also got his first win at SJSU against UH.


  652. chawan_cut:

    ok time to sleep. somehow. maybe i'll wake up and this will all be a nightmare.


  653. NEO:

    Aloha Gang-

    Disappointing loss to be sure, but not disappointed in the team... Currently watching the press conference and to see Adam Leonard say what he did, the way he said it was an inspiration. To see how far this team has come, through the adversity of losing their coach, famed quarterback to graduation, and the majority of it's recieving corps, this team still plays for one another, and the love they have for one another is to me, the most important thing. Sure, we're 1-3 right now... Sure the naysayers will come out of the woodwork, as they already have, but if we abandon the team now, what are we? Ship jumpers, fair-weather fans, complete and total losers in my opinion... So my fellow Tsai-kos and true supporters of Warrior Football, while this loss might be disappointing, the team is now at a critical juncture; and we as fans are at a critical juncture as well. We can either fold and become naysayers and fairweather fans, or we can support the team regardless of record. They say adversity builds character, I say adversity REVEALS it. From what I've seen, this team has a lot of character, although truth be told, it hasn't shown up on the scoreboard, but the true measure of a man is not set by wins and losses, the true measure of a man is how he handles the adversity. So, Tsai-kos, what do you say we show our character and keep MAKING MEMORIES?!?!?

    (off the soapbox)
    NEO out


  654. hawnstln:

    Coach Mack on PPV right now!


  655. Hoohiki:

    Wow, NEO...well said! What did Adam say?


  656. NEO:

    A lot of the PF calls were BS too... in key situations... Sure you don't win or lose by the refs but a lot of those were BS-ish. haha, "they should have had 36 points..." very true, with 6 turnovers, the Spartans should have scored a lot more... Credit to UH defense for holding them down to only 20 points... of course we did lose by 3... Stability at quarterback was my question, and I think Coach just answered my questions... overall, very proud of the team, and I think they've improved, the only thing now is to improve the 6 turnovers. If coach reads this, "keep doin' ya thing coach, NEO supports you!!"

    NEO out (again)


  657. Hoohiki:

    Losing a game is not the hardest thing to watch...It's the players' disappointing faces which tugs at you.


  658. Unkanesson:

    Howzit Tsai-kos!
    I was listening to Bobby & Robert, and they said (maybe it was John Veneri) that Pilares got hit on the head when he scored his second TD and may have suffered a concussion. That's why he didn't return to the game.
    Whew, that was a tough loss. The better team lost! Self-inflicted!
    I think they'd better not give them 48 hours this time. They've got to put this behind them right away and get busy preparing for Fresno. Except for the turnovers and penalties, they played better this week. Significant improvements in several areas. They need to build on that, and fix the problems that led to tonight's loss.
    GO WARRIORS!! ONE GAME AT A TIME!! KEEP THE FAITH!!


  659. NEO:

    Hoohiki-

    Adam basically said "I hate losing, I don't hate many things in this life, since you know I've been bless to be able to play football, but the one thing I hate is losing, so I'm real disappointed in that, but I'll tell you that I'm not disappointed with my brothers on the field, to see how we've played as a team, and how we play for each other, I'm real proud of that, to see how far we've come..." Tell you man... I can't believe these players, and all the adversity they've gone through, how well they adjust... I can see it in their eyes that they hate to lose, but at the same time, I can see that they still have that competitive fire in their eyes... One snap and clear...

    NEO out (3rd time)


  660. curveball:

    Just got home and I survived my first Warrior game. I did get a little wounded at the tailgate. Had a great time right up until we lost. Obviously the turnovers and penalties killed us.Just seemed like allot of mental mistakes.It also appeared that the ref's sucked...

    Thanks Liz for the ticket..it was great fun all day...


  661. FloridaTed:

    There is only one player missing on this team right now, Colt Brennen,

    I can't talk about this game right now, too upset and don't want to be negative, but this should have been an easy win. Six turn overs, you can't beat a High School team with that.

    Defense played fantastic, special team was greatly improved, but we don't have a QB, Funaki can't play in this offense come game time, he keeps missing wide open receivers every play and throws right at defenders. Tylers hand still seems to be bad, at least I hope that was the reason.

    If we play like that at Fresno, it will be another nightmare.

    It feels so totally weird not having an offense. If we ever find one, we could be a great team. Off course, now that the team will need the fans the most, they will stay away in droves. Hawaii only has about 30,000 REAL fans.

    But we truly must develop the JC's now, at least as back-ups and if Tyler doesn't cut it in Fresno, we might as well play them, nothing to lose anymore, they can't be worse than what we have now.

    Well, good night gang, I feel drained and frustrated, but off course will root for the next game and the next and the next....


  662. pomai:

    For the second week in a row we have now winner in the TSAIKOS pik's. But we do have a winner in the team, the score might not have reflected it but their hearts did and that's enough for me!!!

    Next up da puppies

    Anyone have the actual turnstile attendance? I bet this will be MUCH lower than the above figure.


  665. curveball:

    There were a lot of empty seats....


  666. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    howzit tsaikos,

    is it just me or are we going from bad to worst?

    that was truly truly sad. we did a great job at giving the game right to SJSU. interceptions and personal fouls. what the hell is going on??? im not one to point fingers but from what i see, especially from the penalties is that the players

    1) have absolutely NO FRICKEN DISCIPLINE-ZERO
    2) no respect for the coaches.
    3) maybe the coaches lack the necessary experience.

    there was that one foul...think it was number 70-something and Brian Smith came over to chew him out...he looked the other way and started walking away from the coach...the coach then follows him, chasing down the player and he continued to avoid the coach turning his head around and walking the other direction. NO RESPECT.

    IMHO yeah its so great that you would have coaches that can relate to players seeing it wasnt that long ago that they were in those position. but i think that some of those coaches are so close in age to the players that there is no respect...they seem them more as peers.

    did coach mack make the right choices in his staff? ....season is young...sort of...so i cant totally say...but if i was just to make a call right now...no...staff seems incompatible.

    its gonna be the 5th game of the season and i dont think we have figured out who our QB is...on that note that leads me to Rolovich.... lets just say if mack said "he is young and although not very experienced, he will evolve to be a contributor to the team" i think people would be more sympathetic....but for him to say "he is one of the best QB coaches i know...well that kinda equates to a lot of things"

    i really dont know what else to say...i hope we change and make adjustments...to be honest...i am a fan, lived through vonappon and will continue to back the warriors through wutever...but i am realistic...at this rate we do not have a winning season....period...lets hope the warriors work hard to improve and get their butts in gear.

    on a more positive note...the defense...........*APPLAUSE* they did excellent!!!!!! =)....they really prevented what could have turned into a ugly score in the end. hats off to them and continue to do what you do guys!

  668. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    ooops it posted twice...sorry haha


  669. Stretch:

    I agree with iwonder. personal fouls on the offensive line are fricken killing us. even last week at OSU, we drive the ball down, score and touchdown and we get a fricken personal foul so we kick off from the 15. the offensive line has no discipline. i hope that the coach can get their attention.


  670. BARKER:

    Hawaii we remember what you did to our logo 3 years ago. No more Colt this year it's.....Brandstater who threw three touchdown passes and as the FRESNO STATE Bulldogs beat UCLA 36-3.
    Next week it gets worse for the Warriors. Good luck in the DOG POUND!


  671. Stretch:

    how can an offensive captain lead the team when he is getting the personal fouls. i understand playing hard with an attitude but it's just stupid. i see it happening in practice and it carrys over into the game. to me, that isn't too much of a "team" player and definately shouldn't be a captain if it continues.


  672. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    hey stretch...long time. yup yup personal fouls have no place in football. be tough by making the plays....everyone can understand emotions..1 or 2 fouls in a high adrenaline game...yeah its fine. but after that its out of control.


  673. curveball:

    When San Jose was on the field already and the warriors came out it looked like there was going to be a riot. San Jose came onto the field and there was a lot of verbal and hand gesturing between the two teams to the point where the refs and the coaches started backing both teams up. It seems to me that Hawaii took it personal and let it interfere with their game. Stupid penalties both d-line and double stupid o-line. Hawaii acted like they wanted to fight more than play ball..


  674. gibu:

    hey tsaikos.

    first i would like to say the defense played great as expected. i liked the emotion on the field. special teams coverage wise was better, but i would want to see a little bit more effort on at least trying to block the kicks. offense has problems. graunke clearly wasnt ready. there were a couple passes where the receivers had to wait for the ball to come to them. there wasnt the usual zip in the passes. i would give the jucos especially rausch reps now. i would like to see the potential in the qb that actually was the number 1 qb wen he was healthy before the season started. once graunke is 100% again then maybe see where we are at, but graunke does not look ready yet. playcalling also needs some work because to me it seemed like on the offensive drive where kelly attempted the 55 yard field goal that every play on first down was the same exact running play. they need to shake it up a little by mixing up the types of running plays.

    if hawaii gets the offense rolling i wouldn't count out a win against fresno. their defense is giving up a lot of points and our defense is starting to heat it up. dont give up warriors.


  675. koakane iphone:

  676. LizKauai (iPhone):

    stretch! Where you stay? Pride says- if you no come practice, you no can play! Bwahaha!


  677. Stretch:

    liz - tell pride i will call them at 530 when I wake up to go golf.

    koakane - btw, where were YOU last night??


  678. al:

    pomai....shouldn't hiflyer be the winner of the pik the score contest?

    since you said that who ever came closest to the uh score first then the opponent.

    so hiflyer got the 17 on the nose and since no one else had picked 17.....he wins.


  679. koakane iphone:

    wea you now my chain broke and I hear your's still short. even Steve Tsai says no olos


  680. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    hey tsaikos...

    is it true that the coaches had to craft a special offensive scheme just for funaki?...i dont think that can be true...because why would you have a 2nd string QB who does not fit into your "regular" offensive package?...i mean i know he isnt the best passer...but is he that much different that they need to make a WHOLE separate offense for him? we are $h&t outta luck if thats the case.

    that would also prove difficult for the o-line i guess...seeing that they have to work twice as hard at remembering different plays for a "graunke offense" and "funaki offense"...

    that just seems a little too far fetched for me....has anyone heard otherwise?


  681. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    people tend to exaggerate about things like this thats why. hahaha


  682. curveball:

    iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    The fact is ..thats what it looked like


  683. jm2375:

    evening Tsaikos.

    Disappointing evening. Not much confidence in the offense. Defense did great. Team need to get working on FSU tomorrow. Short week.

    Nite nite. Esme and out. whooosh.


  684. al:

    koakane, pride....

    mahalo!


  685. Committed Road Warrior:

    Calling it a night.

    See you all later.


  686. jp:

    This probably is more disappointing than the other two loses because we were expecting a win.

    I would think the team knows what they did wrong. Now they just have to correct it and get better in a hurry.

    Imua!


  687. Mike:

    Looks like Rocky might be gone for the season...


  688. haka:

    Questionable thoughts:
    Think this was a tough loss as a fan? How do you think the team feels? Need to vent? Need to lick your wounds? Didn't we know in the deep dark recesses of our minds that this could possibly happen? Didn't we lose a great quarterback and a special "All WAC" offensive unit? Didn't the prognosticators predict this? Don't we have a new coaching staff? How do we define progress in a loss? Isn't it the euphoric hangover of last season that makes us believe despite the reality of it all? Alas, mine is not to ask why; mine is to do or die...as a fan...to believe...and to support. There is no question that time heal our wounds. Go Warriors!

  690. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    haka-

    i feel u..the team must feel like doodoo. whats more is that even if they are getting the short end of the stick coaching wise...they have absolutely no say or grievance process to ask for new leadership (IF this is the case, which i dont think it is)

    ahhh but fortunately for us fans...we do...as public servants these coaches fall under the scrutiny of all taxpayers. we have a right to call it like we see it (whether skewed or not)...including but not limited to asking for their jobs or asking for improvement...accountability...something i wish all of government was held to. hahahahah =P


  691. Mike:

    LizK,

    Be sure to "rehydrate" him properly. He was having blurry vision in the press box.


  692. cocobean:

    Self inflicted losses are the hardest for fans to swallow. Being a retired armchair/monday morning QB, I won't comment on play calling or coaching. But I will say, a self inflicted loss is one of a coach's best teaching tool. When they go over the game film with the team, they be a lot of "coaching/teaching" going on after.
    This was a self inflicted loss, too many mistakes of all type were made. What else can you say.


  693. cocobean:

    meant to say there'll be a lot of coaching/teaching...


  694. las vegas:

    Uhhh, Preseason I had UH with 10 or 11 wins including SJSU

    Keeping positive, UH will win 8 and a bowl game

  696. Bulla:

    good morning,

    you can't turn the ball over that many times and expect to win. i am glad i was not at the game, i would have been more sick than sick. just listening on the radiod to C&K I was sick.

    what's the problem? so many penalties, no discipline, all the yacking, playing like thugs out there. i thought we had evolved from that stereotype from years back.

    i don't know, i'll leave it to the powers that be, but there definitely is something wrong.....did i hear someone say, "Manoa, we have a problem!"

    Get 'r done, and fix it Mack, that's why you get paid the big bucks. The knock on the coaches is youth and inexperience; we need leaders not yes men. If there is no respect, we have anarchy.


  697. 99club:

    Good morning Tsaikos...

    The good news is that we can fix the penalty issue right away. As for the turnovers, if someone told me yesterday that we were going to have as many as we did last night I would of expected to see a blowout loss. Instead, our D kept it close.

    Pomai:
    20-17 Hawaii over Fresno.


  698. Bulla:

    99club,

    i remember the same situation with another team my son played for, it was always 'defense wins games'...but the rhetorical question was 'every game?' haha

    just throwing my 2 sense out there to liven up the room.....basically, we have nowhere to go, but up......seems we're pretty much on the bottom of the barrel and we gotta go to work.


  699. Bulla:

    #700 :)


  700. 99club:

    Yup, we can't always make the D carry the load. I'm sure the guys are in the locker room saying "Eh, a little help here?" :)

    I confess. I fell asleep during half-time. The way they played in the 1st half showed some bright spots on the offense. But, once Pilares left the game with the suspected concussion everything seemed to fall apart. It is obvious with the way the offense is right now the only offensive weapon we have is Pilares. If he is out for any length of time we are in serious trouble.

    Hopefully, Libre and LWJ and Rego will return in full-strength very soon. Otherwise, as one previous poster said, we may have already seen the only win this team will earn.

    Bulla . . .

    Enjoy your time!

    Tried contacting you yesterday but left a message instead. Hope things went well!

    Thank you for the photos of the game last night. Hey! That elevator in the South Endzone used to be where I worked a few of the Islander games taking VIP's up to the pressbox. Talk about claustrophobic. Eh, the job had its ups and downs.

    HA!

    Whoah - the sun did rise this morning... and it looks like this will be a bright and sunny new day.... :D


  704. Stretch:

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Where's ST, Koakane or Pride?? hmmmm..... I guess they are still getting their much needed beauty rest.


  705. Stretch:

    I forgot to post this last night...

    Thank you to the person who "borrowed" my hibachi sometime during the game last night. I guess leaving the hibachi outside to cool off after tailgating is no longer safe.


  706. Stretch:

    Center John Estes added: "We can't turn the ball over six times. That's what it came down to. They didn't beat us. We beat ourselves."

    too bad he doesn't mention the penalties also...


  707. Garret:

    Reading all the stories about the game to archive the quotes is really painful...but I'm proud of how Sol and Adam told the team after the game to stick together and not point fingers. If the team splinters into offense vs. defense and starts to point fingers, the season will go downhill fast...so them addressing the team like this was showing their leadership.

    "No pointing fingers. Unless you played a perfect game, don't dare look at anyone else's performance. We've all got to evaluate ourselves."


  708. Frank25:

    Hey there Tsaikos and Tsaikettes

    Dont know what happened to the Warriors? They need to improvise,overcome.adapt to what is going on? They need to regroup and focus on the next game in fresno.dont think it will be an easy one?
    Everyone enjoyed the T-gate? Rob25 did,how was the grinds?


  709. Garret:

    One thing that stood out to me--maybe just as important as the 6 turnovers UH lost was that SJSU had ZERO turnovers. In the 3 losses, UH opponents have ZERO turnovers...that is a *huge* difference from previous Mack defenses. As Mack points out, UH won games last year when they turned the ball over 6 times and 5 times on the road.

    We did it last year, but we were getting turnovers, also.


  710. Garret:

    3rd down conversions for UH's offense:

    1st half: 3-for-7
    2nd half: 2-for-7

    That doesn't really tell the story because the big stat was 1 turnover in the first half and 5 turnovers in the second half.


  711. Garret:

    Interesting that Mack singled out the OL for praise. Between the sacks and penalties, they sure struggled...but I agree that SJSU's DL is very good.

    Our offensive line played very well against a San Jose defensive front that is one of the best in conference.

    since you said that who ever came closest to the uh score first then the opponent.

    so hiflyer got the 17 on the nose and since no one else had picked 17…..he wins.

    MAHALO al

    you are 100% right, guess I can only plead that it was 4:40 in da morning en da eyes like sit down.

    Locker - broken right thumb. Out 6 wks. Hmmmmm .... throwing hand... just like another QB that should be sitting.... :shock:


  717. chawan_cut:

    here's one positive.
    SJSU's QB is no longer throwing for that crazy 79% completion rate. he only threw for 50% last night and is now at a season rate of 72%.
    colt's record is safe as just like my GPA, its hard to raise a % but easy to drop it.


  718. wafan:

    Almost forgot . . . sorry!

    Good morning all! This is shaping up to be a nice day -- clear skies and temps up in the 70's. Whoo-hoo!


  719. brew808:

    wafan - Sorry about the poor instructions yesterday. I thought you were asking about tattoos, and not stickers! :D


  720. Rich2176:

    So Margo asks me if "my" team won? (It ended after midnight here on the west coast.) I told her they lost a heartbreaker. She asked if I still wanted to go to Fresno, and my reply was - "The team needs as much support as possible."

    Some good positives last night and I think the team is making progress. However, Inoki had a hard time throwing the long ball. I do like his scrambling abilities, but penalties killed some good runs. Receivers finally looking comfortable.

    One thing that bugged me - When Adam was injured and went to the side line, the only person that even acknowledged him was Tyler. Everyone else on the bench seemed wrapped up in their own little worlds.

    Math for today - PENALTIES + TURNOVERS = LOSS

    Honey-do time....laters...


  721. wafan:

    Brew . . .

    Thanks for the correction.

    C_C . . .

    UH threw for a 58% completion rate -- slightly better. BTW, if you are in Silverdale, there is a good Japanese restaurant on the same side as the Silverdale Mall. It is located North of the mall, toward Poulsbo. Sorry not much more help since I forgot the name of the place. But, the food is excellent! And, the restaurant in the bowling alley is more than pretty decent, too.


  722. FloridaTed:

    Morning Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    After sleeping on yesterdays debacle, I can't decide if it's the offensive coaches we should be concerned with or strictly QB play.

    On the other hand, the coaches don't throw interceptions or fumble the ball. It looks like it's some of both.

    What ever happened to quick slants, short passes and such?

    The offense seems to look lost, but again I say, we now truly can appreciate how great Colt was and by just inserting him, this team would be great. Because of that, I must say it's mostly a problem at QB.


  723. d1島::

    Great Morning All!

    Well, it is a beautiful morning in Hawaii-nei.

    Agree with much that's been stated here:
    - need to field a QB who can play within the base offense;
    - lack of discipine is glaring on the OL;
    - defense is a source of pride again;
    - special teams is no longer a point of shame (with the exception of "shanked" FG attempts)


  724. WarriorFan:

    ..."Manoa, we definitely have a problem"! Something is missing...there's like no chemistry..or is it something else that I'm missing.


  725. brew808:

    IMHO - QB's have their own problems. They were not responsible for the personal fouls, holds, missed blocking assignments, and selfish play.... Somehow, the there's a bit too much "me" in the "TEAM". :?


  726. GMA Honey:

    Just an observation this Sunday morning.

    My grandson's soccer team suffers from something similar to the Warriors. They have great players, good players, inexperienced players. They suffer losses because they do not play as a team. Each tries to do it all themselves, they don't talk to each other, support each other, work together. I ask my grandson when he complains about it, well, what are "YOU" gonna do about it?

    The Warriors need to come together and this must come from within the team. Someone or someones need to step up to lead this team. They need to discipline themselves and each other to avoid silly and stupid penalties. They need to work together as a team and if they leave it all on the field, if they have done all that they can do and still lose, then it's all you can ask for. To lose is one thing. To lose this way, well....


  727. d1島::

    TsaikoGate was great, as always...

    Nice to meet curveball. I wish his inaugural visit to Aloha Stadium had a better ending but hopefully you'll be coming back again as the Warriors get it turned around. There's nothing more satisfying than being there when that happens!

    Big mahalo again to Nalani for the CD. We listened to it on the way home - it's great! (too bad you not going be able to make good on the other part :-( ) It was really nice talking story with you and your hubby.
    It was even more funny watching midori7 getting all "gaga" over meeting you! :lol:

  729. KonaGirl:

    Good Morning Everyone!

    I have to vent...stupid, preventable penalties and stupid, preventable turnovers DO NOT WIN GAMES!!!...grrr...

    OK...thanks...

    I think Haka says it all in post #688.

    Reality check time...we lost Colt, Bess, RGM and Rivers along with (and don't hate me for writing his name) Coach Jones, Morrison, McKnight, Suan and Reinebold. We have a "defense-minded" head coach and a lot of NEW coaches on offense. It's obviously taking time to "gel" as a unit and a team. I DO think they will come around and get it together, eventually...I just hope it's sooner than later.

    OK, on to a couple of other topics:

    1) Did anyone have trouble last night with Oceanic streaming video? I'm in California and had to watch the game on my computer. Last year I didn't have any trouble with HawaiianTel, but last night, the audio was great and the picture was good, but the sound and picture never matched up...it was really frustrating. I followed all of the suggested "troubleshooting" ideas, but none worked. If anyone has any advice, I would love it because there are going to be a couple of more games I'll have to watch this way.

    2) Just thinking about the attendance at the stadium. Now that we aren't doing so well, I am sure attendance will be down. Since the stadium is so much bigger than most colleges have, wouldn't it make sense to condense the size? What I mean is close off the upper half (yellow and red sections) and make those people "crowd" in to the lower sections. Everyone is always so scattered about. There are a lot of stadiums, even the LA Colosium, that have sections they don't seat people in which makes the crowd more intimate and noisier too. Just a thought...

    Anyway, it's on to Fresno...if we can get it together this week, we can make it a good game. It's going to be "passionate" so our guys really need to be disciplined to play the game by the rules. If we do, we'll be ok...we are currently sitting with the same record as UCLA and they gave the Bulldogs a good game yesterday.

    LET'S GO WARRIORS!!!


  730. d1島::

    brew,

    I agree with most of what you say with the exception that some of those holding penalties were the result of the QB being too indecisive and holding the ball too long. If no mo' rhythm back there it puts a lot of pressure on the OL.
    Further, and this is not to excuse the stupidity and selfishness of getting a personal foul penalty, but one could see how the frustration of the OL could build because of those holding penalties.
    (JMHO as one who played some OL)


  731. brew808:

    Mathematics is a beautiful thing! Jason and I proposed a formula last season that was quickly cast aside.

    A logical method would be based on the minimum of the sum of the absolute differerences between the guessed and actual scores. This is readity calculated using an Excel spreadsheet or whatever. In addition, there could be more subjective tie-breakers, etc.

    Okay - you guys can ignore this post.... again.

    Jason - your assessment? :shock: :D


  732. bighilofan2:

    Good morning Tsaikos everywhere!

    And Good Morning to our Warriors!

    Yesterday was frustrating. First couldn't go to Honolulu so I had to yell at the tv and wave my bannah in da hale.

    den watching my team implode, dat wuz frustrating, for sure. den reading the comments about what summa yu saw on da sidelines with Coach Brian "coaching" a O line guy, dat wuz sad sad sad.

    But I believe in our team. I'm showing up at the next home game, I promise that to myself.

    I got a suggestion for Coach Mack. We gotta go with one of the JCs now. The QB is the leader.
    We need a leader. I saw give it to the big bradda. Don't second guess yourself. Give him the whip, throw him in the ring, tell him he's there until its over, and let him play. Rausch isn't ready, mentally. I haven't heard him pulling on enough chain to make me comfortable that he's ready.

    I'll stand behind Greg through thick and thin. Tyler and Inoke have had their chance. Sorry, but thats how I feel. I'd rather give Greg a chance to be the man this year and next.

    And I'm standing behind Coach Mack. Whatever you say, coach. I know its as frustrating for you as it is for me. Hopefully you're more frustrated than I. I'm counting on you feeling like that, cuz that gives me hope for tomorrow.

    I thought the game plan from UH's perspective was good, actually. The penalties killed us, and for the O line guy to turn his back on Coach Brian when Brian was venting/coaching, that shows me the young guyz don't feel in awe of the young coach. I suggest Coach Mack give Brian some crappy pills, so he can get fired up samoa. I saw Brian's personality last spring at the coaches clinic. He's gotta project a killer attitude TOWARDS his players. His language skills, speech pattern, maybe the young line guyz think they're his equal. I think Coach Mack gotta work on that with Brian. I dunno, but thats MHO.

    Go Warriors!

    Hi KonaGirl - I think someone else had a similar problem last night - maybe Ronnie? It might have been a bandwidth thing. Sometimes when the networks are busy, the video download struggles to keep up, ending up in synch problem w/ audio and video. Did you try going to the smaller video format (less data and bandwidth) and did the problem persist? Just a thought.

    Frankly, I get very frustrated w/ Mr. Leahey's errors and sometimes listen to the 1420 feed, living w/ synch problems between the video and audio.

    Ha - all this time I thought you were in Kona. Are you in So or NorCal? And are you going to Raisin-Land this Sat? :D

    Hi Brew808,

    Thanks for the advice...I actually started off with the smaller format for that reason and since it was doing the same thing, switched to the better picture instead. I think it may have just been a busy network. I hear you on Leahey, but there's still just something about his voice that makes it feel like home...

    Actually, I'm in Kona as much as possible...home is there, but hubby's work takes us to California and lots of other places for a good portion of the year. We're trying our hardest to make the Fresno game, but work will dictate that...gametime decision.

    Mahalo for the help!

    morning again tsaiko nation

    eh brew808 made mistake yesterday. should have packed a twelve pack da six was no nuff. :P

    Let's face it. UH isn't a very good team. They play with heart (as I suppose all teams do) but this is not their year.

    I'm not writing them off for the year but four games into the season and they have yet to play a complete game. Somebody has to lose but dumb penalties, ill-advised throws, etc. don't help.


  745. hilogreg:

    My son locked himself out of his car so gong to his rescue with a 2nd set of keys all I had was the radio and lost reception at times.....This game made me sick, sick, sick. Turnovers and penalties.... last in WAC how bad is that, let SJSU hang around long enough to win it.
    The coaching staff brings confidence or the lack of it. Coach Mack needs to brings his staff together. I agree with #695 SillyGorn. and whats with the third down conversions. This should be a wake up call. Gives some reps to other QB's until Grunke is healed, Inoke just isn't getting the job done, which is sad .

    Warriors forever

  747. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Greetings and Blessings Warrior Nation! :)

    I'm not the same caliber analyst as some of our more brillliant posters like say, Jason or Pride, but here's my take on things:

    First and foremost, get Tyler healthy. He would not have the kind of night he had with a healthy hand and wrist. When he's healthy, that missing component, the offense, will show up big time. With a little more consistency, Inoke can do the job too, but I think our world turns on a 100% healthy Graunke. IMHO.

    Defense. Now they know what they can do. They'll have to keep playing with that same level of execution and intensity. We can all be proud of their play last night..

    Better play from special teams, but they still need to improve.

    As disappointed as we all may feel, our team can still become a much better one. All of the pieces aren't in place yet, but the defense has set the standard. It's hard to see at this point, but the offense CAN be as good as the defense was last night. Six sacks indicates that your offense is sputtering, and that sets up the turn overs.

    Lots of hard work ahead, but the Warriors can do it.

    First of all,mahalo to all of those who helped make Coach Alan Inaba, his wife Lisa and his first two students from Dole Middle School welcome at yesterday's T-Gate. More on how they got there later on.

    We haven't sorted the HI-5 stuff yet, but it looks as if there'll be another $25 going to his after-school program.

    Second, I asked Jason after the game to write one of his on-point anaylses of last night's game because I'm not comfortable about making public comments about a sport whose inner workings I'm still deep into learning from the ground up.

    Unlike baseball where I probably attended my first game at the age of six months and was playing seriously by the time I was six or seven even though I was a girl, football was really pretty much a mystery until a decade or so ago when digital television became the broadcast/cable standard with incredible camera technologies.

    Having said that, I did share some game observations with Jason last night at the post-game gathering at the cabana about the strong defensive line overall, the horrendous number of penalties, the lack of communication between the coaches & the players, and the key mental errors which set in motion what happened after that.

    Mahalo for those of you who've taken the time to write comments and observations about football which added to my knowledge base.
