Mouse in the house

October 31st, 2008

OGDEN — As it turned out, the Warriors practiced at Weber State's practice facility, courtesy of WSU coach Ron McBride. "Hawai‘i's done a lot for me, it's the least I can do," McBride said. The original itinerary called for the Warriors to have a walk-through in the hotel parking lot.
Speaking of the hotel, the Portland State football team is here in preparation for tomorrow's game against Weber State. Mouse Davis greeted the UH players. Jerry Glanville is somewhere in the hotel. And Erik Pedersen is now a Portland State linebacker.

Punter Tim Grasso recommended a place called Wingers, which serves all-you-can-eat wings and sticky fingers. We asked McBride, and he shakes his head in that no-no-no way.
We go there, anyway, and the food is so-so.
So, while I'm talking, using hand waves for emphasis, I accidently spill my Diet Coke. OK, I basically knocked it over, splashing "Ferd's" lap. He's wearing beige pants.
He's also irked.
I tried to take a picture because it looked like he had shi-shi pants, but I had bbq sauce on my hands.
Then I tried to apologize. But I guess he thought a giggling apology was not sincere. Anyway, if you see "Ferd" around, tell him I'm sorry.

Here's Tim Grasso's list of friends/relatives who will be placed on the ticket list:

Gas is $2.60 a gallon here.

"Iceman" is a little chilly at practice:

During yesterday's practice, slotback Dustin Blount practiced as the scout-team running back. Blount was impressive, using his quickness to surge to daylight from the shadows of the offensive line. And, thus, an idea was born: one coach suggested that Blount, who is redshirting this season, compete at running back next year.

The Advertiser offered buyouts to its employees. Among those who accepted are Wayne Harada, Lynne Chang and Rod Ohira. That's a lot of "institutional knowledge," as they say in our biz. They indeed will be missed. Jim Dooley, however, is not leaving. He's still our best investigative reporter. I apologize for including him on  the original  list.

    RE #5 - Great news. I was checking GampePlan and came up empty. It will also be on ESPN360. You'll need to download the player, but it works really good. Also has some archived games.

    Happy Halloween. Continue getting better Dr. Doc. Safe travels to all....

    Good Morning,

    I see we lost Kelli for the game tomorrow. How about Hooiki and Bananafysh?

    Whitey hasn't come back from his EIS yet, so I don't know the location yet.

    Who's carrying the game locally?

  34. koakane iPhone:

    morning tsaikos

    welcome back video peeps and best wishes to those leaving

    good luck to beast and safe time on the bigger island Eastman clan

    good to hear DrDoc is doing well

    Esme over and out whoooosh

  35. madeinhawaii:

    Morning all,

    Sort of like the changing of the guards with the buyouts. Geeze.. I still remember sitting down in an interview with Wayne Harada in the early 70's for my role in a pidgin-ized version of Ionesco's "The Scoundrel Scapin." As a singer, my sister interviewed with him several times in the later 70's. He's been there forever. I suppose it's an early retirement for him. Hope he enjoys the best of years to come... same with the others who accepted the buyouts.

  36. Buffoman:

    I know it may sound crazy, but in the over used cliche of "must win games", this one is in that category. UH has to wi this one as a momentum builder as it will be the first time in this team's new history of coaches that they would be over a .500 team with a win. That being said, having read the papers, posts here and listening to the talk shows, it sounds like this Utah State team is not given much respect. I only hope that that sense of confidence is not spilling over to the team in their preparation to play on the road.

    A slip here due to ill preparation, due to over confidence and looking to the Hawaii Bowl, counting this game as a win before it is played could spell disaster.

    USC looked past Stanford last year and got burned...badly, no BCS championship game. Stanford was thought to be simply out of the "USC league" but came up with the surprise.

    Hope we're prepared.

  37. SteveM:

    Good morning ST and Bulla!

    Bulla (re #24) is PSU staying at the same hotel as you? That means Jerry Glanville and Mouse Davis...interesting.

    Good to see so many mainland/international Tsai-kos this morning:

    Ronnie, ChinaDrew, wafan, losthawaiian, Baybow, Rich2176, PONO and Pomai ... all within the first 27 posts. I suppose we could include ST and Bulla today too. :)

    Good luck and best wishes to those HA employees taking early retirement. I will miss Harada's and Ohira's columns. *Tsaigh*

  40. bb:

    anyone hear scott robbs aka bobby curran show this morning?

    kanani danielson's real father called in and was not to pleased regarding comments made by media and coaches regarding her name was quite awkward to listen to but much better then some of the callers that call on a regular basis and say the same damn thing over and over....

  41. Stretch:

    bb - I heard that call also. If what he was saying is true, that he was and still is a part of her life, then I can understand his frustration.

  42. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    Happy Halloween Everybody!

  43. Stretch:

    Schools in a Georgia are cancelling class today since there is usually a large amount of TEACHERS calling in sick and not coming to school. They are not able to find enough substitue teachers to cover. Everyone is getting ready for the big game tomorrow between Georgia and Florida.

  44. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

  45. (Jesse) James:

    Good morning "Spook"os and "Spook"ettes....Happy Halloween to all !!!

    buffoman - I agree. We need to take each game one at a time. I have always been one who believed that every game is important and never overlook anyone...look at what happened when we overlooked PSU....among you said, each game is critical at this juncture... LOL

    chawan/Kazz/Garret - I liked your discussion about media bias and "system QB" yesterday. I know TT's QBs have also been labeled "system QBs" by the media and I don't have a problem with that. My only gripe, and I've said it since forever, what is a system QB? Every team runs a particular "system" and therefore every QB will be a system QB.....

    I also didn't like the fact that on the first BCS announcement show, Terry Bradshaw (whom, as a Steelers Fan, I love) and Barry Switzer were talking about Colt McCoy and his terrific stats. They kept going on and on about his completion percentage and touchdown to interception ratio and saying stuff like, "We've never seen that before in college ball" and "Who ever heard of QBs getting so many TDs and so few INTs" That bugged in....breathe out...breathe in....MWAHAHAHHA

  53. d1島:

    Thanks for the DrDoc update. Glad things are progressing nicely. Scary (the date notwithstanding) stuff about his mis-diagnosis.

    Parking lot practice? Hope someone packed the knee and elbow pads!

    Will watch closely as the "new face" of the HA comes into view.
    Is it possible that those who take the buy-outs might still contribute on a free-lance basis? Perhaps even in another media?

  54. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    I got yer nightmareright here, Jesse James, now GET BACK TO WORK!!! "Killer Klown" is watching you...

    Tiebreaker: What will be the Aggie’s longest run?

    UH t-shirt - donated by Ultimate Hawaii Gear Enterprises

    Speaking of nightmares, I went to the eye Doc yesterday and he dilated my pupils, then I had to go shopping at Sam's Club. I must have looked like I was on drugs with my pupils so wide. Then I run into "Kinda Shy" and she said the Athletics Department is going off for Halloween. Another worker in Department is going to dress up as Jim Donovan, and wanted to take a picture with her. Hopefully we get some pics of the costumes and decorations at Athletics on here today.

  64. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    Where's your Halloween name? Just think of the fun we could have here every year if everybody had Halloween names as virtual costumes.

    Auryte Jay!

  75. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:

    OK dpk.

    How's this?

  76. Rob"Jason Witten"25:

    Ok, I'll play along. Somebody has got to take over for the boy. I need my 'Boys to beat the Giants....even if I have to go in and throw a block or catch one of Brad Johnson's poorly thrown passes.

  77. Garret:


    Great news about Dr. Doc! I hope that he isn't too upset about his condition not being found earlier...unfortunately, our health care system pays for very specific things to be looked at and pays the percentages on what is likely to be found. So, some things slip through the cracks. Thankfully, it sounds like Dr. Doc will be okay!

  78. Garret:

    Practicing the parking lot is a lot different than practicing at the stadium (hasn't Mac had the team do walk-throughs at road stadiums?) or on grass. Hopefully nobody slips and the hard surface. I guess the logistics didn't work out to get to the stadium today.

  79. Garret:

    I hope that the Advertiser vets who took the buyout enjoy their next careers or retirement. I'm sure that they will be missed, but at least that was a buyout instead of the forced layoffs that Gannett is planning for 10% of the employees at its newspapers. If the buyouts mean that layoffs can be reduced, that would be good.

  80. Garret:

    Blount at RB could be very interesting...especially since the Warriors have a lot of WRs returning and no RB recruits now.

  81. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:


    Seems like the road walk-thrus have literally been walked thru so slips and falls on the parking lot surface doesn't seem to be too much of a concern.

  82. Stretch:

    The team is staying in Ogden which is about 40+/- miles away from the Utah St stadium. It wouldn't be worth it for them to take the bus that far and back for the 30 minute max walkthru.

  83. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:

    ...besides maybe they can play a game of two-hand touch with the Portland State guys at the hotel.

  84. Garret:


    Your enthusiasm and support of UH is great, I hope you didn't take my post last night in any negative way. Texas Tech QBs were labeled system QBs before any UH QBs, and it hurt them as much or more than UH QBs. Which is really sad.

    However, things are changing because high schools seem to be switching to spread offenses and almost all college programs are doing the same. Michigan's Henne was praised for coming from a pro-style offense, but now Michigan is using a spread offense. So, once almost ALL colleges are using 4 WRs, then they can't use the system label anymore...and each year more and more colleges are using it, which decreases the negative impact of the "system" label.

  85. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    d1- Byootiful! :lol:

  86. Garret:


    I figured the logistics were that way, as I remember the discussion of where the Warriors hotel was. It does make sense to save the time...and I'm guessing that the game-day atmosphere in Utah State's stadium with the number of fans who will show up won't be that intimidating.

  87. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    Very Scary, "Jason Witten"!

  88. duffer:


    What station is carrying the game?

  89. Garret:

    This poor Arkansas high school receiver sure did all he could do for his team and they still lost. This is an example of the high schools using the spread offense...

    Rose Bud, Ark., has a lot of catching up to do as a football team, and Friday night J.D. Felice was the one doing the catching.

    The senior flanker caught 24 passes for 421 yards and had six touchdowns (one of them running) in a 64-55 loss to England. The yards are a national record that is being verified by the National Federation of State High School Associations. The previous record was 414 yards set by Jasper Lee of Delta (Mer Rouge, La.) in 2000.

  90. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    Wouldn't that be more like "two fists" touch?

  91. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:


    the UH game is on PPV

  92. Garret:


    Here is an example of how the entire recruiting process has changed because almost everyone seems to be using a spread offense in high school and college.

    In the era of the spread offense, with three and four wide receivers and the empty backfield, tight ends (TE), fullbacks (FB), and tailbacks (I-back) are becoming a thing of the past.

    You can already see the change when it comes to recruiting.

    Not everyone agrees, but the spread of the spread offense has college recruiters looking for more defensive backs and one less linebacker in recruiting classes. The premier tight end is getting harder and harder to find. The fullback? Forget it.

    "The spread is going to have a major effect on recruiting because so many high school teams are going to the spread, whether they have the personnel to run it or not," said Jamie Newberg, a recruiting analyst for

    "You are going to see the tight end go away, the fullback go away. There will be more receivers. What is going to happen to the pro-style QB and what is the NFL draft going to look like in five years?"

    At least eight schools in the SEC spread the field with four wide receivers. The Big 12 is on the same track, and the ACC features more quarterback-receiver driven offenses.

  93. Garret:

    Interesting that run-oriented offenses in high school are less popular now because the cut block was outlawed in some states.

    One of the reasons there are more spread offenses than option offenses is that some states have outlawed the cut block that goes with the option game.

  94. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:

    I'd hate to have my car parked along the "sidelines" ;-)

  95. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:


    Well that Arkansas HS did pretty well against the whole country of England!

  96. Garret:

    The 7-on-7 leagues in Texas have improved QB/WR skills, and have been great for recruiting. Remember when the Big 10 was known for power running games and a pro-style offense? Now, they are going to spread offenses.

    Warren said the fun with the spread continues into the summer with the 7-on-7 tournaments. The 7-on-7 leagues have become so popular because players can polish their pass-catch skills, and Warren said Big Ten coaches are flocking to Texas to recruit spread quarterbacks.

  97. Garret:



  98. Garret:

    Norm Chow will be recruiting in Hawaii during UCLA's bye week.

    Defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker will be in the San Francisco Bay Area. Offensive coordinator Norm Chow will travel a little farther, flying to his native Hawaii.

    Coaches aren't allowed to discuss recruits, but has reported that UCLA has oral commitments from running back Dalton Hilliard and receiver Roby Toma of Punahou High in Honolulu.

    Punahou is the alma mater of Chow and presidential candidate Barack Obama. More to the point, it is the current home of highly sought linebacker Manti Te'o, who has drawn interest from other programs, including USC.

    The Bruins reportedly have an oral commitment from offensive lineman Stanley Hasiak of Kapolei High. With UCLA ranked last in rushing in the Pac-10, Chow said: "We're focusing on the offensive line, no question."

  99. madeinhawaii:


    If all the teams HS and College go to 4 wide. What chance would smaller, low budget, non-BCS schools have in competing for the big bowl games? Would the greater athleticism in the bigger budget, higher profile schools consistently win out over the guts and heart players of the less endowed schools?

  100. SteveM "Spider-Man":

    I'm in Kid....but the XXL spandex costume doesn't look as good on me as the advertisement photo... :(

  101. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    No Halloween name Garret?

  102. Stretch:

    DPK - can I be "Mr. Incredible" or is that costume reserved only for you??

  103. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    LMAO@ SteveM's Spider Man costume...

  104. Garret:

    When discussing recruits and the number of stars that the recruiting "experts" give, I always prefer to look at the offers the player has and how much the coaches have had a chance to evaluate the player (like at a camp). I think that the coaches do a MUCH better job at evaluating players, especially in a place like Hawaii where scout/rivals/ESPN probably don't attend many high school games.

    Here is an example of a player that a coaching staff liked that wasn't rated highly by the recruiting services. Blake Gideon was a 2-star recruit that Texas gave an offer to last year, and he committed right away. Many fans were extremely critical about this, as there were 4-star players who had Texas as their #1 choice that did not get offers. Now, Gideon is a true freshman and has started at safety all season for the #1 team in the country. He must have been evaluated well by the DB coach--Duane Akina.

    In the car, minutes after getting the scholarship offer from Brown, Gideon and his father embraced. They cried.

    "They were tears of joy, of happiness," Steve Gideon said.

    Now Blake's gone from a two-star recruit that some Texas fans complained about to a starter, a leader of the secondary and perhaps the biggest pickup in the Longhorns' 2008 recruiting class.

  106. Kevin:

    This is meant in good humor - Just to comment on Garret's article on the Arkansas H.S. player - I know mainland people often stereotype us in Hawaii. . .and I really don't mean to do the same, but why does it seem like you have to be from the South to have a name like "Jasper"? :)

    Honestly, does anyone know somebody born in Hawaii with that name? Imagine a Polynesian guy with that. . . Jasper Tuiasosopo. Hmmm. doesn't quite work. :)

  107. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:


    Interesting about the 7-on-7 leagues becoming popular in TX.
    Summer pass league was long-standing in HI until it's coordinator "decided" that it wasn't worth it last summer. He cited low attendance due to the number of kids going to mainland camps throughout the summer.
    I'm sure it had nothing to do with his own tenuous circumstance at the time... :evil:
    Hopefully it returns this coming summer.

  108. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    LMAO again! It's all yours Stretch.

    Or maybe Stretch "The Silent Samurai"...

  109. Kelli:

    Hawaiianbod (Trust): Thank you! I'm kinda upset that I have to take school work with me, but at least I managed to finish most of it throughout the week.

    duffer: Sorry! Maybe I'll come to Maui again sometime.

  110. Garret:

    Of course, Gideon is a coaches son and an extremely tough guy...

    There were a few big hits during a non-district football game his sophomore season at Leander. There was a crack. Lots of pain.

    Blake knew his back was bad, and getting worse, but he sucked it up and kept to himself.

    A bad back meant no football, and that was unacceptable.

    "What's amazing is we didn't find out he had broken his back until three or four weeks later," said Steve Gideon, Leander's head coach.

    "He didn't tell anybody. But all of a sudden, instead of winning every sprint at practice and being the best at every drill, he was finishing last at everything, and I mean dead last at every practice. Finally, one day I asked him what was wrong. He said, 'Dad, my back is killing me.' "

    You want to know Blake Gideon? Know he played four varsity football games with his back broken in four places as a sophomore in high school.

  111. (Jesse) "Jack Sparrow" James:

    okay DPK...I'll play

  112. madeinhawaii:

    Hmmm.. um... oh... ermm.. eh.. ahhh..

    geee... uuuuhhhh..


    sorry.. but..


    put it on...


  113. Garret:


    It is horrible that they would stop the summer passing league in Hawaii! That will significantly hurt the development of Hawaii high school players...and those players will be the backbone of the Warrior program.

  114. Garret "Garett":

    If all the teams HS and College go to 4 wide. What chance would smaller, low budget, non-BCS schools have in competing for the big bowl games? Would the greater athleticism in the bigger budget, higher profile schools consistently win out over the guts and heart players of the less endowed schools?


    It does bring up a BIG problem for the run-and-shoot offenses at smaller schools. Once reason for using the run-and-shoot or 4-wide offense at a school like UH was that it was an equalizer because bigger-budget schools wouldn't be used to facing that type of system. Also, it gave UH an advantage in recruiting because WRs and QBs would want to play in that type of pass-first system instead of the power running systems used in BCS Conferences.

    If the BCS conferences are going to use a similar offense (Texas has stretches of games where their pass/run ratio is WORSE than UH last season), then UH loses that distinguishing factor advantage for recruiting. Instead of choosing between a BCS conference school and passing just 50% of the time vs. going to UH and passing 70% of the time, now the BCS conference school will pass 70% of the time too.

  115. Garret "Garett":


    I chose my Halloween name--I'm going as an engineer in a different field who gets to watch the Warriors practice and do "marketing".

  117. Jay "Da Pilipino Pootball Flayer":


    We found out we're having a boy in March so I'll bring up the name Jasper with my wife. We were expecting a girl, but now we gotta go through the rigamarow for a boys name. His older brother is Jose. So we're going for the whole "J" tribe thing. Thanks for bringing that up.


  118. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:

    Garret "Garett",

    That's fine, but we know that you'll never even show up for fear that there may actually be some work to do!

    Hmmm....maybe I should actually get something done today...

    d1 and bulla, you are st.l school parents. the other forums ( forum, sports hawaii forum) are discussing billy stutzman. talk is he had a monster game and showed his skills off last night against Kamehameha. one quote mentions he is faster than rivers. do you know his times in 40? would like to hear about this future UH wr.

  126. madeinhawaii:


    Ain't it kind of sad though? Now that the 4-wide.. spread or RnS is rapidly gaining a foothold in all levels of amateur football, the gurus of the game are near retirement. We're lucky to have had Mouse Davis, June Jones, and now Ron Lee. Three of the Originals. Along with McMackin who has been around the RnS for just about as long as JJ and Ron.

    You'd hope their experience and legacy with the RnS will be a draw for players and assistant coaches.

  127. Bulla:


    No scare too many kids tonight

  128. SteveM "Spider-Man":

    Kelli -- you know Al and I were only kidding whitey about Starlite (sp), right? It would be a lot of fun and a lot of good food and fellowship to watch a game with whitey and duffer.

  129. Bulla:

    Stutz is a legit 4.5 any day of the week

  130. Kazz:


    No no no, I did NOT take your post last night as negative at all. I just thought I'd dig a little deeper into the homerisms all UH fans share. :smile:

  131. Stretch:

    SteveM - what about Starlite?? Never been there before.

  132. d1(John Belushi Sandwich Shop-owner Samurai)島:


    No worry, beef curry.

    That coaching "tree" get plenny branches.

    Hmmm....speaking of beef curry....

  135. Kazz:


  136. Stretch:

    Nice that the football team will be able to at least practice on a real football field. I wonder if they will get Zip Pac's when they arrive?? Come on Bulla, take care the boys....

    Roderick's grandfather passed away this morning according to Bob Nash on the Artie Wilson Show.

    Take all the time you need braddah, basketball can wait.

  139. madeinhawaii:


    Too bad the Ching/Cooke Field turf won't be completed before the Warriors return home, eh? That would be a welcome surprise.

    MIH - maybe the tekkies are moderating ST? :twisted:

  141. Kazz:

    Soooo... ummm...

    JJ called Papa Leahey to "talk story" about how he has some scholarship players at SMU that "don't want to play"....

  142. Kevin:

    Saw the STL game last night. Not only does Stutz 2.0 have great speed, but outstanding hands, and made some nifty "keep one foot inbounds then dragging toe after the catch" grabs.

    Jay Da Pilipino - what would your kid's last name be? A filipino Jasper would be hillarious. Imagine a guy named Jasper Macadangdang! :)

  143. Kekoa:

    Kazz ~ Well spoken my friend. Roderick's grandfather must have been really proud of him.

    My condolences to the family.

  144. ho-mini-mey:

    Another awesome day in Hawaii nei. Can see the blue skies.

    I forget where Koko Marina stay. That's a damn far drive from Waianae.

    I got an extra ticket for the VB game tonight...anyone interested. Only one though because I am using the other one.

  147. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    I think the blog had problems because of the guys who don't have Halloween names. I'm just sayin'.

  148. Kazz:


    Roderick's grandfather will have MORE to be proud of this upcoming basketball season. He'll have the best seat in the house to watch his grandson make his mark on the court!

  149. Rob"Jason Witten"25:

    ho-mini-mey - Just keep driving towards the east until you almost go off the cliff after Hanauma Bay, then turn around and it's at the next light.

    How big are those poodles?

    My condolences to Roderick's family.

  150. Kazz:

    Rob, just you going? I'll take you up on that offer for the ticket. I wasn't sure I was going to go tonight but I can make it after all.

  151. Rob"Jason Witten"25:

    Kazz, it's yours. Send me your cell and we can hook up before the game or I can leave at will call when I get there.

  152. Kazz:

    Rob I'll email you in a bit.

  153. Rob"Jason Witten"25:

    What's with the moderation now?

    WTH, my comment may take some time to appear? They are always trying to fix something that isn't broke.

    Run 'n Shoot:

    Why the sudden popularity with this scheme at high schools, college, and NFL?

    If this becomes THE "system" to use, how will the computers, voters, etc who are stuck to the "old" system going to act when it comes time to vote for BCS rankings?

    Is this part of the evolution into changing the BCS system into one that will create "new" BCS conferences from the mid-level ones such as the MWC, WAC, etc. or a combination thereof to compete for the "big bucks" in bowl games?

    What role will the sponsors and ESPN take in sponsorships and spreading the $$$ more evenly amongst the BCS bowl games?

    What role will "voters" play for the new BCS rankings? How will this change, if any, the attitude of many "closed-minded" individuals who consistently spew out the "old" dogmas of smash-mouth football even if some have never played the game?

    OR, who really cares????????

  161. FloridaTed:

    Good afternoon, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    Finally back on the blog, after being away for a few days (not that anyone noticed, lol). Lots of good stuff happening the last few blogs. Great discussions and subjects. Great recruiting news also.

    I'm really glad that everything turned out so well for Dr.Doc, that was the best news yet.

    Have some good news to share, in this horrendous economy, any little positive hope is welcome :

    After constant prodding by my Writers club, I've finally send a query and synopsis of my book to a well known Literary agency in California. To my shock and surprise they replied and requested my full manuscript. That doesn't mean a "yes" by a long shot, but considering the 98% rejection rate of queries, that is a huge step forward.

    Now, off course, I'm sitting on pins and needles for the next four weeks.

    Keep your fingers crossed for me everybody. Maybe the Tsaiko Power will work for me, lol.

    Go, Warriors, get two road wins.

  162. Ronnie:

    Congratulations FloridaTed!

    Happy Halloween!

    Ryan Mouton is a Football PIMP! He's one of the best players UH has ever had!

    Dustin Blount to RB, hmmm...he should be a pretty good return man next year too... Hope he hits the weights and Muscle Milk 5'8" 175lbs. RB isn't that big.

  166. homey *Lady Godiva*:

    If UH needs a RB, hope Coach Tuioti takes a trip my way on the bye time. I know he's got the videos and info of the kid, go after em Coach!

  168. Committed Road Warrior:

    So with the bye week between the New Mexico State game in Las Cruces and the Idaho game at home, are some of the coaches going to be staying on the mainland to do some recruiting trips? Or are they all just gonna come home with the rest of the team?

  169. Maverick - a.k.a "Jughead":

    Awesome Ted - Best of luck on your latest ventures.

    Also, happy to hear about practice today on some turf. Gimme a break, jeesh, a parking lot? Is the field covered with a foot of snow?

    This isn't high school

    That is some terrific news and hope the 4 week wait will bring much good news your way.

    Hope to get a copy of your novel someday.

    Looking forward to seeing you again in Vegas ( weekend of 9/15/09 ) and hope Mrs decides to accompany you.

  174. homey *smegal*:

    Good luck to all the 'Tizer buyouts. What was the buyout offer???

  175. FloridaTed:

    Thanks, gang, for the well wishes, Tsaiko-Power, keep your fingers crossed.

    A-House, I plan on being in Vegas next year, but timewise, it's too far down the road to know for sure. I would love to see you guys again, as well a many other Tsaikos. Say hi to the Mrs and Midori.

  176. homey *OBGyn Dr.*:

    Have a safe Halloween everyone.

  177. J-Dog:

    PB, does the RB have any highlights on youtube? Or you keeping it on the DL for now.

  178. J-Dog:

    I don't understand how a division 1 school was planning on using a parking lot to practice on....but then again with UH, nothing surprises me anymore.

  179. Stephen Tsai:

    Hey, Mouton said it was his brother who posted yesterday.

  180. Stretch:

    ST - ask Mouton why he doesn't post himself. hmmmm, do I sense a chat guest coming up??

  181. homey *Barney*:

    J-Dog - PB did post a link to the RB highlights but I forget the link...

  182. Stretch:

    Too bad I wasn't on this trip. It would have been fun to stay in the hotel with the two different teams. I wonder if Ron Lee can sit down with Mouse and work out some new plays...

  183. Rob"Troy Aikman"25:

    Stretch - That would indeed be interesting to see! Can you just imagine the different plays they could come up with? You still got time to jump on a plane...where's your private jet?

  184. Rob"homey's weird"25:

    homey - you venturing out to Hawaii Kai in the am?

  185. homey *geoduck clam*:

    I see Utah St does pretty good offensively in the redzone, when they do get in the redzone.

  186. homey *geoduck clam*:

    Rob "does Dallas" 25 - I'll try and attempt the drive. If I'm not there then that means I'm not there.

  187. Stephen Tsai:

    You'd love it here.
    The rooms are huge.
    The beds are huge.
    One small problem: the toilet is right up against the bathtub/shower. You almost feel like putting you right foot in the shower while doing business.
    OK, OK.

  188. homey *da plane, da plane*:

    At least the game isn't as early as the Florida game. This game isn't in HD is it?

  189. Stretch:

    ST - if you got the ADA room again, it is a sign!!

  190. jm2375:

    Thanks Homey for the visual. #177 eeeewwwww

  191. Stephen Tsai:

    Hey, there's going to be a slight delay, about 2 minutes, I believe on posts because of heavy traffic today.

  192. SteveM:

    What an interesting convergence in Ogden...UH, PSU, and Weber State. It's a wonder Bulla didn't pack his bags for Utah earlier :) Nice of Coach McBride to share their field with UH!

    Looks like a "Ferd" type of story brewing...along with other liquids :|

  193. homey *da plane, da plane*:

    jm2375 - does that mean when you have your annual checkup you'll picture me?

  194. curveball *i cant throw a strike*:

    Mucho Mahalo Coach McBride for taking care of our team when needed.

    This is why coaches don't run up the score on other teams (coaches)
    Where all in this game together, helping these kids ACHIEVE to the next level, no matter what that shall be.
    Count our blessing that our coaching staff, along with McBride and crew share that same Aloha spirit. That made my day and weekend.
    GO WILCATS! ( There gonna take the Big Sky Conference)

  203. las "Shamu" vegas:

    What are "sticky fingers"?

    Maybe for once, I don't need to know.

  204. homey *chawan_cut*:

    jm2375 - just watch the game live at the stadium!

  205. jm2375:

    homey *da plane, da plane* - now that suits you much better!! hehehehe. Good thing chawan is in transit. Wait till he sees this!

  206. Stephen Tsai:

    Nope. Didn't get the ADA room this time.

  207. SteveM:

    ST -- have you seen Bulla yet? I think he has recommendations on a steak house for appetizers, a steak house, and another steak house for dessert.

    I hope the PSU people don't regard him a spy just because he can hide behind a small potted plant. :)

    All the wings you can eat? I don't see what the problem is...

    BTW... Anyone heard of "Dirty Lickenz" in Aiea? They server pupu-type dishes... I saw that 500 hot wings will cost you about 300.00.

    Im just trying to imagine what 500 wings would look like.

  211. Manoa Mist:

    I kinda understand where Ferd is coming from. We were in Macarroni Grill couple months ago, and the olive oil bottle was teetering on the edge. My boss grabs for it, and knocks a full Diet Coke all over the table with a cascading tsunami-like wave pouring over my pants. I was soaked, along with the table cloth. Wise guy waiter comes over, thinks I did the mess, and tells me he's going to bring me a sippy cup.
    Which I would have planted in one of his orifices.
    Bye bye tip.

  218. Jay "The Nature Boy":

    My bad.

    Is this better?



  219. Stretch:

    Jay - yeah, looks good, we don't want DPK getting all pissed off with you.

  220. homey *ex-Chippendale's performer*:

    mih - don't confuse jm2375 because she can't believe buffalo's have such small wings.

    Pass out candy or turn off the porch light and watch Wahine volleyball on tv?

    Tell 'um, "Jus no look down!"

  228. Rob"EmmitSmith"25:

    We stayed at PSU during one of our band trips at Kamehameha. I don't remember too much about the area either except that their drinking water really REALLY sucks.

    Ronnie is better at remembering things. She remembers things that we did when we were younger and she really shouldn't remember them considering the state we were in.

  229. homey *Power Ranger (green)*:

    Wasn't the USU QB a returner before?

  230. jm2375:

    Homey - be a nice guy and pass out candy, then watch the replay later.

  231. duffer:

    Kelli's doing a jojo, but she should do a esme.

  232. madeinhawaii:


    What I do remember of Portland was that I thought it was a small quiet town and so I booked an extra night. The next day as I was sitting down eating when over the news they listed the cities in the US with the highest criminal rates and Portland was it. Suddenly the people on the left.. and the people on the right didn't look as friendly as I thought.. LOL

    AND as for confusing Jm2375 regarding the 'buffalo' wings, she'll be all right just as long as we don't tell he where to look (on the bufallo).

  233. Stephen Tsai:

    Hey, bruddah Kekaula is having quite the travel this year.
    He always gets two seats each flight.
    On the last trip, they assigned him two AISLE seats.
    So funny.
    This time, they gave him bulk-head row. Thing is, the arm-rest doesn't raise in that row. If he sat there, he'd have a permanent wedgie. ("Calling Guyton Galdeira, we need a wedge buster ...")

    I remember watching a YouTube video from 2006 when the team did the haka after the game. The best part of the video is when you can hear the guy next to the camera man yell mockingly to the team "HURRY UP!!! I COLD!!!".

    I think that game in 2006 was when we got the Hawaii Bowl invite. It looked to be around low 50's or high 40's then. I cant remember what month it was though but I'm pretty sure it was pretty close to this time of the year, if not later.

  257. (Jesse) "Jack Sparrow" James:

    Stretch...I guess there could be golden showers in Utah tomorrow eh???? LOL

    Homey - Is there a samoan word USU...??? What's the meaning??

    With stories like that, it's no wonder Kelli's dad is not allowing his daughter to visit the darkside even in the sunlight! :-)

  259. homey *Munchkin*:

    (J)J - USU, v.t. 1. to start a journey, especially early in the morning. 2. to sing a song. pass. usuina.

    USU, v.i. to hold a kava ceremony to welcome some guests. v. to marry.

    USU, n. soprano.

  261. Ronnie:


    October 31st, 2008 at 2:44 pm
    We stayed at PSU during one of our band trips at Kamehameha. I don’t remember too much about the area either except that their drinking water really REALLY sucks.

    Ronnie is better at remembering things. She remembers things that we did when we were younger and she really shouldn’t remember them considering the state we were in.

    It’s funny that I couldn’t remember the name of the school we stayed at, but I remember other things. Like…. I remember having an 8 hour layover at the San Francisco airport while those with names beginning with A through something before S caught an earlier connection. I remember that the roses were beautiful.

    I remember the food wasn't very good to us, so we were thrilled when the driver of the parent’s bus stopped at the grocery store so they could get us stuff to make sandwiches. I remember someone dropped a tray in the cafeteria and I thought it was really rude how people cheered about it. I remember that the parents made us signs for the competition and the bus drivers sat with them and helped to hold up the signs – and told us we would have to walk home if we didn’t win. I remember hearing the other bands snicker at us during the final walkthrough because we were in our band t-shirts and they thought they were our uniforms. I remember that our band director told us that one of the other band directors complained that we ran over our rehearsal time because were intimidating his band. I remember being told that one of the bands we were competing against had never lost a fieldshow competition and others were nationally ranked. I remember thinking we got ripped off when they got to second place and we hadn’t been called yet – and then being called as the winner. I remember that a newscaster that had moved from Hawai’i to Portland with her husband heard that we were competing and came down to the stadium to congratulate us when we won.

    I remember it was really, stinking cold when we marched in the parade. I remember marching over the drawbridge during the parade and looking down at the water – kind of freaky! I remember that a horse of one of my classmates died during the Kamehameha Day parade. I don’t think she even wanted the horse to be in the parade.

    That’s some of what I remember about being in Portland.

    sorry for the long post :oops:

  262. Kazz:

    October 31st, 2008 at 3:15 pm
    Anyone catch Leahey and Leahey show this morning? Papa Leahey was talking about his phone conversation with JJ yesterday.

    Yeah I heard that and I was just laughing at Papa Leahey describing the conversation. JJ apparently told him how he has scholarship players at SMU that "don't want to play", how much he goes to Trader Vick's "just to smell the teriyaki", and how much JJ sounds like he really misses Hawaii but doesn't really say it.

    I kinda laughed how JJ also apparently told Papa Leahey how he has the top QB in Texas coming to SMU next season and then the L&L crew went on about how that kid won't be playing for Texas, Texas Tech, or TCU so how good could he be etc…

    Funny thing though… When L&L went to commercial I caught a caller on the Bobby Curran Show (with Scott Robbs filling in) claiming to be Kanani Danielson's bio father. This caller was talking about how no one has the right to judge the situation in which he took offense to people saying "it was the right thing to do" in reference to Kanani legally changing her last name to honor her stepfather.

    Scott Robbs went on to reiterate that it's Kanani's choice to do so and the fans and the media must respect her wishes. The caller then said that's fine, but at the same time the public shouldn't make assumptions on certain situations they are not familiar with.

    It was a weird call and there is no way for us listening to really believe that was Kanani Danielson's biological father or not, but I just thought that it kinda was an unnecessary call. Personally when she changed her surname I NEVER thought for one second, that "oh maybe her birth father wasn't around or whatever", I mean I may have wondered a little in the back of my mind but at the same time I really didn't care as to "why". So… yeah… take that call for whatever it's worth.

    I just hope Kanani wasn't listening during that time as that caller could have taken the conversation to another level and might have made it uncomfortable for her.

    I dunno… bottom line for me Kanani Danielson is going to be a real special volleyball player for UH in the years to come and I could care less what her personal business is and I'm pretty sure A LOT of the fans feel the same way.

    Garrett #105 - Good post. I've heard many in the know people say over and over - Stars mean nothing. The star rankings actually are affected a lot by recruiting interest. It can sometimes be a self fulfilling prophecy. Some kids get a couple schools interested and all of a sudden, everyone's interested. Another kid might be overlooked, and continues to be so, just because of the lack of momentum on the scouting sites.

    I saw an interesting statistic on #1 ranked players coming out of college and where their career took them. Some were great. Others were flops. Some due to injuries, but many just didn't pan out.

    So I say, don't worry about stars. Let the coaches decide who they want, and who fits their system best, and then let's support our players and coach them up. UH can be very successful in that way.

    I recognized one of the kids as a 9th grader in one of my classes. I know he does not live in the area -- his folks dropped him and his friends off in the neighborhood to collect candy. They will go to other neighborhoods do repeat the action. What a scam! I gave those teens only one piece of candy each.

    The kids actually from the neighborhood got several pieces.

    And, now it is raining and the candy is gone. I should have kept a few for myself. Oh well. Tomorrow the Halloween candy will be really cheap!

  333. Garret "Garett":


    Great news about your manuscript! I hope that you get good news soon!

  334. Kazz:


    I assume I shall run into you at Sunday's basketball game?

  335. chawan_cut:

    yes, home from the sound.

    yes you are correct. i'll be there. wouldn't miss it.

  336. Garret "Garett":


    If UH fans feel a lack of respect about the "system" label, I think Texas Tech has it worse. Not only have they had many more successful college players (with amazing stats) ignored by the NFL and college postseason awards because they were playing in a "system", but so many columnists say that their system doesn't work because they cannot beat Texas or Oklahoma.

    That really isn't fair to Mike Leach and Texas Tech, since Texas gets their first pick of recruits, and Oklahoma and others get their recruits before Texas Tech gets it pick. But when recruits compare Austin to Lubbock, or the academics at Texas vs. Texas Tech, it is hard recruiting for Texas Tech. That doesn't mean that their system doesn't work, it just means that their system gives them a shot to compete with recruits that might be slower or smaller.

  337. Garret "Garett":

    It sounds like Leach is so frustrated that he might actually want the Washington job! He's built an amazing program at Texas Tech, but he might see some limitations there (Lubbock, academics, hard to recruit over Texas/Oklahoma, etc.) that we would avoid at Washington. Leach would dominate the recruiting over Washington State!

    Thing is, Mike Leach has other fish to fry right now. His Texas Tech football team, No. 6 in the country, is about to host top-rated Texas. All it is, is the biggest football thing ever to hit Lubbock.

    As for Leach and the Huskies, don't laugh. Word on the street is Leach is ready to get out of Texas Tech and would be highly interested in the UW.

    He never played college football, one of four such coaches in Division I-A. He said this week he coached Little League baseball for several years, high school through college at Brigham Young, always figuring he'd be an attorney. But nearing the end of law school at Pepperdine, he began to realize he had a coaching itch to scratch.

    So he got a master's degree at the U.S. Sports Academy in Daphne, Ala., in sports science and coaching, and hooked up in 1987 with passing fanatic Hal Mumme at Iowa Wesleyan.

  338. Kazz:

    I think I just heard Afatia Thompson's song on the radio (KUMU FM). I don't know what it's called but the song sounds familiar when he was on L&L a while back and they played a little of it.

  339. Garret "Garett":

    1700 Texas Tech students were camped out since Tuesday to get tickets to the Texas game on Saturday. Mike Leach visited with them and brought them BBQ!

    The throng of Tech students that has continued to gather outside Jones AT&T Stadium in the tent city dubbed Raiderville seemed to draw as much pleasure from his presence as they did from the food he brought.

    Leach, Tech’s head football coach, put in an appearance following afternoon practice to praise the devoted students and fans as the highly anticipated game between the No. 7 Red Raiders and No. 1 University of Texas approaches.

    “I appreciate you guys coming out here,” he said. “It’s really our pleasure to have you here and to have you as our fans, and we really, really appreciate your supporting our team.”

    Then Leach turned the crowd loose on a table full of barbecue.

    Raiderville is not your average shantytown village. Residents have generators running flat-screen televisions, video game consoles and speakers that would rival a rock concert.

  340. FloridaTedAlohaWarlock:


    I'm not not holding my breath yet, but it's a good start and confidence builder, even if that agency does not pick it up. It's only my first try.To even make it past an agents slush pile is the hardest step and even if they don't end up taking it, somebody else might pick it up.

    I have the possibility to go on, but that will be my last resort.

    funny how up to date google can be.....i tried and bit on "hyuntae".

    hahaha. good one stretch.

  345. Kazz:


    Mike Leach's gesture immediately made me think of a "Tomey-ism" in which he had players personally thank the UH fans waiting in line for tickets at lower campus the night before a home game often times after practice as they were still in their pads and uniforms.

    Recently when I attended a UH basketball practice and Bill Amis thanked the fans in attendance for taking the time to come out to watch them.

    It's the smallest things that people will always remember as much as the big things.

  346. Garret "Garett":

    I kinda laughed how JJ also apparently told Papa Leahey how he has the top QB in Texas coming to SMU next season and then the L&L crew went on about how that kid won’t be playing for Texas, Texas Tech, or TCU so how good could he be etc


    The QB JJ got to commit over the summer is named Kyle Padron, 6'4", 200 pounds. He and a lot of other QBs went to JJ's camp at SMU and Padron was the only one who got an offer.

    Drew Allen is a 3-star QB who gave a couple of interviews about how he hoped that he could get an offer from JJ. Drew ended up committing to Oklahoma.

    Drew Hollingshead is a 3-star QB who went to visit SMU a number of times, and his father was actually hired by JJ to be something like their director of high school relations. He couldn't get an offer either.

    The interesting story behind that recruiting is that JJ offered Padron a scholarship before he was a starter in high school. The other teams wanted to wait until he had played a few games in high school, but his performance in JJ's camp must have been amazing to put him ahead of the bigger-name QBs.

    Padron had the unfortunate luck in high school to be behind QB Riley Dodge. Riley Dodge was AP's Texas state 5A Player of the Year and happened to be the son of the head coach...Padron had *no* chance to start in that situation! Kind of like how Colt couldn't start until his senior year in high school.

    Padron put up some amazing stats as a starting QB this season and would have gotten a lot of interest from other schools if he hadn't seen like such a strong commit. In 5 games or so he threw for over 1,500 yards, 128-189 passing, 18 TDs/3 INTs, plus he ran for 300 yards and 6 TDs. Padron is injured now, but he could be back for the playoffs.

    Padron's older brother just transferred to SMU to play, another way that JJ will be able to keep Padron away from the schools that will make a push for him after the season...and I'm curious if a BCS conference school will convince him to switch his commit.

  347. Garret "Garett":


    That was a nice gesture by Tomey! Lots of other schools do that and it is a great idea.

  348. momotaro "chino rheem":

    From a UCLA Q&A. Click on name for link.

    LB Poly DE Iuta Tepa committed to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago but has apparently re-opened his recruitment due to offers from Oregon and UCLA. Does UCLA have a chance at him or is he leaning towards Oregon?

    UCLA has a chance with him, but I don't know to what level. I can see him winding up at Oregon, but I wouldn't rule UCLA out.

  349. momotaro "chino rheem":

    More from UCLA Q&A. Click on name for link.

    What are the chances we land that Tepa kid from LB Poly, the DE committed to Hawaii?

    Decent, but if I was a betting man, I wouldn't bet on it. (Thankfully, I don't gamble ...much.)

    These 4 coaches are excellent, and they are the only D-IA coaches who didn't play college football.

    Texas Tech coach Mike Leach, a lawyer by training, is one of just four current head coaches who did not play college football. The other members of the coaching sub-fraternity are Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson, Kansas' Mark Mangino and Notre Dame's Charlie Weis.

  353. JaM:

    Good evening to all!

    Happy Halloween?

    BigHilofan2: do you know where fb game will be shown in Hilo?

    Will be arriving in the a.m. and may be able to catch the game...

    Now I need to find a hotel...

    be back!

  354. Nalani:

    This is our first halloween in the new house. In Haleiwa, we used to get at least 100 kids every halloween. We bought a lot of candy and now our neighbor tells us they got zero trick or treaters last year. Boo. I hope we get somebody!

  355. Bulla:

    i could have told you about Wingers, haha. you should have came with us to Ruby River, 16 oz ribeye and 2 sides for $21, brough 1/2 home to the hotel...and the place was empty....Haloween night.

    gotta admit, you looked pretty sharp in long pants ST, caught me by surprise going through the lobby. RK with a leather jacket on, wow, it was like a custom tent with sleeves, that thing looked great.

    funny thing about the practice fields at Weber, one is natural, the other is field turf, and the stadium is natural.....huh? yeah, that's what i said.

    hotel has UH and Portland State in the house, on separate sides of the building. a little nippy tonight, turned off the AC and opened the window for fresh air......nice.


  356. Stretch:

    There are not much kids who live around my area in Aina Haina so not too many visitors. That's kind of good so I can watch the vball game without too many disruptions

  357. Stretch:

    I wonder if the two teams knew that the other would be staying there?? The hotel should have mentioned it to both teams. Not sure if it is really a bad thing since there are Hawaii connections with Portland St.

  358. SteveM:

    Read a review on Therapy Sports Grill this afternoon. They have 2 pool tables, darts and karaoke! The reviewer was really high on the sushi too.

    Sing a few for me... and I bet 2 cans of diet coke on Addahknowsports' team.

  359. Bulla 'Shrek':

    ok]dpk, you happy now? haha

    stretch, i did order 90 zip pacs for the team today.....while i was waiting in line at Carl's Jr., the manager came out and asked me 'sir, what is a zip pac?' would they settle for a jalapeno burger next time? next time.....

    haha, GO WARRIORS

  360. Bulla 'Shrek':


    here's the deal after we talked to the GM here, since my better half is 'in the biz'. PSU booked their rooms last week friday, it seems that their travel coordinator is having 'challenges'. wherever she had the team, Coach Glanvill told her no way we're staying there. luckily the Marriott had rooms available. but it gets better, i was talking with a PSU coach, and as of monday, they did not have a return flight after the game. the coordinator 'forgot' about it. hence, they are on a charter flight at 10 pm from salt lake city. ouch.....

  361. JaM:


    Did the same thing 25 years ago bought lots of candy...nobody has been to our house. Only the neighbor 4 kids, but they're all grown up now.

    Many years ago...a new neighbor and I camped out on the main road just to give candy out..sat at the street corner by the stop sign!

  362. Bulla 'Shrek':


    thanks for the props earlier for Weber State, but it is still one game at a time, but it would be nice to go all the way for coach mcbride.

  363. SteveM:

    Bulla 'shrek' -- Kid is asking for halloween costume, so you gotta find something else :)

    I had to take off my "Spider-Man". Peaches told me I could only keep the hood if it cut down on my snoring.... :?

  364. Stretch:

    Shouldn't it be Bulla Barney?? It has a better ring and matches a lot more

  365. Stretch:

    Or is it Barney Bulla??

  366. A-House:

    Saw part of the Farr/Leilehua game and that punter from Farr is good; consistently long and Sky-punts for short ones.

    Anyone got info on him?

  367. Barney Bulla:


    I concur with The Last Samurai are the most wise one you way too young Zatoichi

    dpk had the perfect costuem as cupid, and i was more worried about his arrow than his bow.....twannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggg

  368. LizKauai (iPhone):

    Happy Halloween!
    I'm passing out candy. Get PLENTY kids this year!

  369. FloridaTedAlohaWarlock:

    No kids in my neighborhood either, Ticks off my wife, she's a real holiday person, any kind of holiday.


    What's the team spirit like, serious and focused or light and loose?

    This game the Warriors will put it all together, full blast, at least that's my gut feeling.

  370. Barney Bulla:

    if dpk had black shoes, WC Fields comes to mind, nah, although dpk is the elder statesman, no need to throw the suit and shoes on

  371. Stretch:

    bulla - no worry, his arrow is small, no can feel if you get poked

  372. FloridaTedAlohaWarlock:

    Hiya, LizK,

    I'm not surprised that a lot of kids flock to your house on Halloween.

  373. Stretch:

    The practice on Thursday seemed pretty light and loose. The team was having some fun but I hope they don't take Utah St too lightly.

  374. Pauoa (Da Candy Clepto) Boy:

  376. lab rat:

    WooHooo......the Governors win and the player of the game is my favorite player Justin Vele. He is only a sophomore. I hope UH coaches are giving him a look see. The Govs have one of the best linebacking corp in the state.

    A House the punter does not have the distance but I actually think that the Lelehua punter is better. The Gov kick returner is really good but did not really get to show his stuff tonight.

  377. Da Punchbowl "Killer Klown" Kid:

    Soooooo... Bulla Barney-
    Just the shoes with nothing else?

  378. K. Mouton:

  382. K. Mouton:

    Don't know if this has already been discussed but how come it's so hard to keep guys like Manti Te'o at home? There is no way he should be leaving the island.

  383. whitey "byuntae???":

    al, you watching the vb game, wahines down 2-0.

  384. Stretch:

    whitey - when you see your friends tonight, ask them if "byuntae" matches you

  385. Stephen Tsai:

    Is it my personality, or what?
    Kekaula said he wants to stay in.
    "Ferd" won't answer his phone.
    And Bulla and Mrs. Jaegermeister are calling it a night.
    I guess it's just me and my good buddy Wal-Mart.

  386. Stretch:

    ST - I was just going to post that you must be at Wal-Mart since you are not posting. But was going to wait because it wasn't 1am yet.

  387. whitey "byuntae???":

    stretch, will do tomorrow at the game site. better be good my son.

  388. Barney Bulla:

    it's Utah, home of the mormons and 'bring'em young', even if Izzys was open they'd be closing in 1/2 an hour.

    now Ruby River, you missed out. we can go do something tomorrow night and celebrate 2 victories!!!


  389. Barney Bulla:


    Well done Governors, good job and thank you very much.

    Good season year maybe.......

  390. Stephen Tsai:

    Actually, I went to Macy's, which is a 24-hour super market here.
    (Yeah, real original name, but cute jingle.)
    I had to buy TP because the one in the room is quite gritty.
    Wouldn't you know it: Macy's only had single ply.
    But I bought it anyway.
    OK, this is the new equation: TP=TMI.

  391. Barney Bulla:

    Target is better than Walmart, we went tonight to get some things. it's on riverdale by all of the car dealerships, past the mall. go up to washington, take a right, then take aright on riverdale to get to Target.

    i had fun with mrs b, pumpkin pies for $4.99, granny smith apples for $2.99 for 8 apples, and ketchup was cheap. had to make a 'stop' for the beast and friends, haha

  393. Stephen Tsai:

    Coach Mac (McBride) likes Bulla.
    Or, as he says, "Boo-la."

  394. Barney Bulla:

    you should have asked me, we're on the 8th floor, ooops, that's the Concierge floor, need a key to get the elevator to come of the benefits of having a wife in da biz......big room, big bathroom, got the window open catching some fresh air.....

  395. Barney Bulla:

  399. Stretch:

  400. Stephen Tsai:

    I'm on the first floor, and until this evening, I didn't realize that people can see right in.

    It appears that the lure of "big time" football on the mainland is a special draw to some Hawaii players.

    They want the lime light of playing for USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan St, etc. and playing in a BCS conference.

    Some just want to get off the "rock".

    For the players who choose to stay home or migrate from the mainland, Hawaii has been a very good conduit the NFL. It appears that the 2008 seniors will be a good batch for NFL scouts to watch and draft in April 2009. And, Ryan is expected to be drafted early.

    so i am watching one of my all time favorite times at ridemont high with sean penn. its hard to believe that the show debuted twenty six years ago!!!

    that was sean penn's greatest work.

    and to think jason wasn't even born yet.

  469. letsgowarriors:

    ryan mouton is the MAN! he needs to play D full time. he is our only shut down corner. he gave the O the spark they needed, now put him back on D full time. he should only be playing 10-12 snaps on O if they are going to be playing him both ways.

    mack youre crazy to play him on O full time, he needs to be in top shape and form for the NMSU game!

  470. Justin:

    I believe Mouton will move back to D once pilares is healthy. We will need Mouton's covering ability against a pass happy team like NMSU.

  471. Kekoa:

    Just back from Neighborhood parties. The ceded lands was like being in Disneyland Park's Electric Light Parade, complete with fireworks! I've never seen such a brilliant display of light in my life! Ahhh...but then the police are afraid to come on to the ceded lands to cite anyone, because they might get their life lit up!

    S'all in good food and fun. Plenny candy for the keeds tonight. They wiped us out of about 10 pounds of candy.

  472. jm2375:

    Howzit Kekoa. Leave me any candy?

    Chawan - you still *up*? how come you didn't call me?!? i've been waiting by the pay phone all night. you still need one booty call? call me, k?

  476. 99club:


    Thanks for the memory jog with the old time wrestlers. I was driving a delivery truck one day near Ala Moana and was stuck in traffic. I looked to my left and noticed the front fender of the car next to me, a baby blue Mercedes, had a silver derby attached. It dons on me who would have that on their fender and sure enough as I looked over at the driver there was 'oddjob' smiling at me. Pretty funny. I found out years later that he had won the silver medal in the '48 Olympics in his weightlifing class as well.

    Anyone remember the "Indian Death Match" between Missing Link and Billy Whitewolf (I may be wrong on the second name)? They were chained together with a 10-foot chain and the 'match' got out of hand and they were going at it 'off script.'

  477. 99club:


    Contest #1: 190 yds
    Tiebreaker: 14 yds

    Contest #2: 75 yds
    Tiebreaker: 12 yds


  478. Ralph:

    99 are you up for the texas vs texas tech game.....

  479. 99club:


    Yup! This whole town is up for the game. Thankfully the UH and TX games are not on at the same time. I think Tech'll have a chance if they can pick on those Fr DB's. We'll see.

    BTW, I've got a hunch Boise St. is going to have a tough time down in Las Cruces tonight.

    ST- hope you are getting some sleep!

  481. 99club:


    I found an 'oxygen at altitude' calculator online and the 4500 ft referenced in your article works out to only 86% of the oxygen one would normally have at sea level. I think Denver is 82%.

    In regards to remarks by #41(bb) & #42 (stretch) regarding Kanani's real dad....if he made comments on tyhe radio that he was still a part of her life then he may have not been as truthful...stretch, you cannot know the frustration unless you have been in Kanani's shoes or her family's...Kanani changed her name for reasons that her "real dad" will not accept... he knows why, but only wants to take credit to "glorify" himself! Bottom line, her name is not Herring anymore, it's Danielson!
