Don't know much about geography ...

 What a wonderful world this would be if I actually had the correct state for Butte College.
I wrote that it was in Montana.
It's actually in California. Hey, maybe Washington and UCLA recruiting poachers will go off to the wrong place.
Anyway, a UH coach told me: "I hope you're not a UH grad."
This was like the first time I tried to go to BYU. I didn't realize that Brigham Young was in the opposite direction of Brigham, Utah.

UH's Pro Day, a combine/audition for NFL scouts, is scheduled for April 2 at the Home Depot Center at Carson, Calif. David Veikune, Ryan Mouton, Adam Leonard, Solomon Elimimian and Jake Ingram are among the former Warriors who will participate.

Each player received a workout shirt. Written on the back: WAC Champions in Training. Defensive tackle Keahi Watson is modeling the shirt; the "guns" are extra:

Here's linebacker Waylon Lolotai, who joined the Warriors after a church mission to St. Louis. Lolotai's grandfather was the first player of Samoan ancestry to play in the NFL.

This dog "adopted" running back/linebacker Jake Heun, following him around the school.

Thanks to some donors, the foyer to the UH coaches' offices now has new carpet (check out the H logo), new couches and, as we've mentioned before, four TVs.

Just got off the phone with Riley. He's taking credit for Obama's election. He said that in 1979, he went to Punahou to recruit. He signed Dan Hale and passed on the left-handed shooter. That allowed the future president to go to a Mainland school and eventually embark on a political career. And I always thought Riley's greatest accomplishment was to get Ray Reed to pass the ball.

Greg McMackin and his wife, Heather, have enrolled in Hawaiian studies classes.

Happy (really) belated birthday to Janet Yoshida Bullard, one of the leaders of the UH Alumni Association and a Rough Rider classmate.
