Maui scrimmage is April 11

February 26th, 2009

From Derek Inouchi:

The University of Hawai‘i Athletics Department has announced plans for a football scrimmage on Maui and details for next month’s “Warrior Bowl,” which culminates spring practice.
On Saturday, April 11, the Warriors will fly to Maui to hold an intrasquad scrimmage at the War Memorial Stadium beginning at 11:00 a.m. (tentative), followed by an autograph session on the field.
No state funds will be used to pay for the trip and donations from McDonald’s and Oceanic Time Warner Cable, as well as support from Hawaiian Airlines and Panda Travel, and in-kind support from the County of Maui will cover the expenses.
The “Warrior Bowl” intrasquad scrimmage will be held at Aloha Stadium on Saturday, April 25, at 3:00 p.m. Prior to the game, McMackin and several UH football players will be available for autographs and photos from 1:00-2:30 p.m. on the South Endzone concourse. Fans are encouraged to bring their cameras and items to sign. Parking is $1 and fans can enter through Gate 4 beginning at 1:00 p.m. Admission is free.
Beginning at 3:00 p.m., the Warriors will play the four-quarter “Warrior Bowl.” Fans are invited to sit in the stands on the Makai side of the stadium.
The Warriors open spring practice Monday, March 30, at the Clarence T.C. Ching Athletic Complex, which features a new artificial playing surface. UH has not practiced on the field since 2003.

The athletic department today honored Margie Okimoto, who is retiring after 41 years as the secretary to the athletic director. Among the luncheon guests were Bob Wagner, Vince Goo and Hugh Yoshida.

Here's Vince Goo with his former basketball assistants, Da Houl and Serenda Valdez:

Last season, the Warriors missed Dennis McKnight's loud, crazed-dog, manic coaching style. Maybe the new G.A. — Mike Smith — will fill that void.

* * *

For more than a month, Chris McLachlin has fretted over whether to announce the UH-Stanford telecast. McLachlin's son plays for Stanford. Relax. McLachlin is a top analyst, and quite objective. He'll do the telecast tonight, as he should. It actually would be a weird sight for McLachlin to be in the stands. He belongs on the mic.

  27. Stephen Tsai:

    When I was at UH 100 years ago, and Bulla can back me up on this, the students used to get sideline seats at Aloha Stadium.
    Then they wanted to move the boosters in there, so gradually the students got moved to the side. And now the corner. Or the North end zone.
    For too many years I've heard the students being threatened: Pony up student fees or we're taking your seats and giving them to boosters.
    Guess what?
    Just like Manny Ramirez's phantom suiters, there are no other bidders. If you're a booster and you want a good seat, there already are plenty available.
    Why not go the other way? Tell students a fee gets you x-number of seats and, maybe, access to the weight room and pool, etc. But stop making empty threats.
    Besides, UH doesn't need the students' approval on this. The chancellor or Regents can just impose a fee. What UH needs is the students' suppoort. So it's time to make nice-nice to the student body.

  35. FloridaTed:

    Good morning/afternoon, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    Wow. this coaching staff is sure shaping up very nicely. I'd venture to say, if we'd had this years staff last season, we would have had at least three more wins.

    This could be a really exciting season, especially with Boise coming here.

  41. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Hi CfK!
    We saw you last Sat. :lol:

  42. homey ℞:

    If only the Warriors had a d-line coach named Wesson.

  43. Jason:

    homey: Yeah, it's a proposed $20 U-PASS fee. Right now, I pay $100 for five months of free bus service; they put a sticker on our student ID, and we get the same rights as anybody else with a bus pass. Considering an adult pass is $40 per month, it's a good deal.

    The thing about the proposed U-PASS is that TheBus gets a big bunch of cash up front; in return, we get added night service for the A and 4 routes, and possibly Wi-Fi on buses servicing the UH area. I think they also discussed realigning the bus schedule to better match typical class times.

  44. Paco:

    ST - I agree re: students. One problem I've always had is the seeming lack of support and pride by my friends who are alumni (i'm not). I attributed that to the lack of effort on the part of the administration to involve the students and to grow that pride and love of UH. Ferd made a good point that todays students are tomorrows season ticket holders, donors and supporters. Who knows....there might be a future "Shidler" roaming the campus right now.

  45. Loa:

    howzit homey ℞

    ok, how may caught no. 42?

  46. Calvin from Kona:

    I can't remember if I paid an Athletic fee when I was a student at UH. I paid an optional one in High School. Who knows how they're going to fix this. Increase home pay-per-view games by 200%? Sell huli-huli chicken to pay for admin costs?

    Maybe a Gold-level athletic fee for students that gives them discounted ticket prices in "good seats', increased access to UH athletic facilities, discounts on UH apparel.Regular level athletic fee for students to have limited access to athletic facilities and 10-20% off regular ticket prices.

    Just an idea

  47. FloridaTed:

    Re: Student fees.

    Donovan should just call a meeting with the student council and hash out their differences. He's the kind of guy who can convince them that it will be in everybodies best interest.

    Successful sports programs, especially in the major sports, raise national awareness of a University and, right or wrong, improves the overall image of any University and that's good for everybody.

    With his diplomatic and team building skills, I'm sure he'll be able to build a bridge and find an acceptible compromise solution that will make all parties, if not happy, at least somewhat satisfied in its resolution.

  48. homey ℞:

    Jason - How did you figure out that $100 is free bus service? :lol:

    My daughter in the frigid NW region has a similar U-pass fee. It is definitely a good deal for the student.

    I'm pretty sure not.

    But what was the nature of his medical buyout with the Ravens?

    I tell you,some false pordagees now a days. Akkin like crazed dogs!

  60. Jason:

    homey: It's complicated math, I don't want to confuse your little ICS brain more than I have to.

    Calvin: Eh, you stole my idea! I've been advocating something similar for awhile now. Regular fee gets admission and some benefits, but not guaranteed. "Student boosters" get guaranteed preferred student seating, extra benefits, stuff like that. Those people would be the ones to target as future boosters for ‘Ahahui Koa Ānuenue or Nā Koa.

  61. Calvin from Kona:

    you make me feel like someone so special

    Loa - you could have also said you were thinking about going to the KK's.

    chawan - I think the word "looking" was left out.

  68. A-House:


    Like you idea abut using the Super Ferry to Maui for the Warriors scrimmage on Maui - I would go, but will need my "motion sickness" med.
    Spend a day on Maui and hook up with the Maui Tsaikos - should be loads of fun!

    Doubt if Mrs A-house or Midori7 would go because they are more sensative to motion than me. If the boat is moving, I usually can handle, but would take the med just to be safe so can have fun with whitey and Duffer.

    Let's keep this in mind and see how things work out!

  69. homey ℞:

    WM - I'm thinking he must have been injury prone...shoulder or knee or hamstring...paid off then waived.

    ST remembers. I used to sit between the 40's in orange section with the students when it was the UH student section (friends got student tix). Even Honolulu stadium 110 years ago was sideline 50 yard line for students.

  75. Kekoa:

    Last season, the Warriors missed Dennis McKnight's loud, crazed-dog, manic coaching style.

    ST ~ So Dog Chapman is gonna coach?...j/k...

    Welcome to the Warrior Ohana Coach Smith! I think you're gonna like it here because of the homegrown players you'll be able to develop into quality ball players and men.

    You won't find a more rabid fan base than right here in these islands. We even have a Tsaiko fan that goes by the handle *BG* which stands for Bleeds Green!

    We'll leave it to you to unleash these eager young lions on the WAC world of football!

    Good afternoon Tsaikos!

    Currently at home with sick child (sore stomach). Was at work for 1.5 hrs, missed the monthly show-n-tell aka department meeting... Came home and took a 2 hr nap :D Now I gotta try do some work...

    Coaching staff looking guuuuud.

  78. warriorfanny:

    yeah, OK, so maybe the Gov and Mufi should take the cue and ask taxpayers before they raise taxes...

  79. Kekoa:

    A-House ~ I'll be very honest with you. When the SF is sailing on calm seas, the ride is really smoother than on the H-1 freeway! Take a test sail...they offer a special military discount. They even have the 2nd SF coming in. Soon we could be doing Kauai and Big Isle too!

    So the trick is to pay attention to the 7 day weather forecast prior to sailing. Those that get motion sickness even in their bath tub can always fly over. No problem in that, as long as you get there for the party and the game.

    Those that can make it, drive their vehicles on board - heavily laden - with stuff they can carry for others (get by the excess bag fare the airlines charge).

    If we organize our load list like a special teams deployment, we can bring the essentials for our Maui T-gate in Stretch's truck with Homey in the back feeding the fish along the way! Shoots! everything else we might need our Maui Chaptah can help us with.

    Go Warriors!

  84. Kazz (blkberry_storm):

    Make nice with the students and on the day the fee is imposed have the administrators compete in a dunk tank event.

  89. Garret:

    Welcome to the Warriors Mike Smith!

    Coach Smith is definitely qualified and his NFL experience and his character (according to Mike Leach in the Advertiser today) makes it definitely seem like he'll be a great asset to the Warriors. UH might eventually get more coaches through Mac's ties with Texas Tech and Miami, as it is natural for head coaches to hire players and coaches they worked with before.

    My only (very minor) concern is that I thought that the Wariors would add a GA who would work with the DL, as Ikaika Malloe worked with the DL before he left...and there are a lot of former UH DL who had a lot of success at UH and beyond and might have liked to break into coaching. But the GA position doesn't pay much at all so maybe others weren't interested, and UH still has Dave Aranda for the DL.

  90. Garret:

    The NBA just got a big line of credit, which they used to give loans to 15 of their teams that are having trouble in the current economy. The players have guaranteed long-term contracts, so it isn't like the team can easily cut expenses down...

    The NBA is expected to borrow $175 million Thursday to help teams close operating losses brought on by the economic recession. UPDATE: The league said on Thursday that it borrowed an additional $25 million, bringing the total to $200 million.

    The league will distribute the funds among 15 teams that requested them, with each team getting no more than $13.33 million. The borrowing, which is in addition to the $1.7 billion credit facility used by the league, comes as NBA teams are dealing with lower attendance and a loss of sponsorships.

  91. Garret:

    Sad time in the newspaper industry. The Denver market couldn't support two papers, so they suddenly announced that the Rocky Mountain News will close tomorrow. They were around for nearly 150 years, but they have been trying to find a seller since December and now have given up.

    The Rocky Mountain News publishes its last paper tomorrow.

    Boehne told staffers that the Rocky was the victim of a terrible economy and an upheaval in the newspaper industry.

    "Denver can't support two newspapers any longer," Boehne told staffers, some of whom cried at the news. "It's certainly not good news for you, and it's certainly not good news for Denver."

    On Dec. 4, Boehne announced that Scripps was looking for a buyer for the Rocky and its 50 percent interest in the Denver Newspaper Agency, the company that handles business matters for the papers. The move came because of financial losses in Denver, including $16 million in 2008.

    "This moment is nothing like any experience any of us have had," Boehne said. "The industry is in serious, serious trouble."

    In the past decade, the Rocky has won four Pulitzer Prizes, more than all but a handful of American papers. Its sports section was named one of the 10 best in the nation this week. Its business section was cited by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers as one of the best in the country last year. And its photo staff is regularly listed among the best in the nation when the top 10 photo newspapers are judged.

    Staffers were told to come in Friday to collect personal effects.

    The San Francisco Chronicle might close soon the best case scenario, their workers will take much bigger pay cuts than the Advertiser workers.

    The Hearst Corp. today announced an effort to reverse the deepening operating losses of its San Francisco Chronicle by seeking near-term cost savings that would include "significant" cuts to both union and non-union staff.

    In a posted statement, Hearst said if the savings cannot be accomplished "quickly" the company will seek a buyer, and if none comes forward, it will close the Chronicle. The Chronicle lost more than $50 million in 2008 and is on a pace to lose more than that this year, Hearst said.

    The Chronicle, the Bay Area's largest and oldest newspaper, is read by more than 1.6 million people weekly. It also operates SFGate, among the nation's 10 largest news Web sites. SFGate depends on the Chronicle's print news staff for much its content.

  103. Garret:


    Thank you for posting the Ka Leo article. It sure doesn't sound like the ASUH feels any sense of urgency to help the athletics program! If they go at this slow pace before even starting to prepare the student poll they are requiring, then it will be 2 or 3 years before the athletics fee could be reviewed by the regents!

    So, the students canceled the 2 meetings that they were supposed to meet with the Athletic Department and then they had a 3rd meeting where they formalized their opposition to an athletics fee!

    "I specifically told the subcommittee that it could be more powerful if the students were polled, but we just don't have that much time to get a referendum. ... We can't wait 12 to 18 months to get the results of a poll back."

    "We did exactly what (ASUH) told us to do," Donovan said. "(They) canceled two subcommittee meetings and we tried calling and rescheduling, because we told them that it was very time sensitive for us and we wanted to try to get something to the regents by May or June so that it can be approved for September 2009."

    In a third meeting, the student Senate passed a resolution stating opposition to the implementation of the athletics fee.

  104. Colomaohana:

    Garrett: you think the NBA could borrow that from Shaq? Or maybe just have the highest paid player on each team sell one of their million dolla' homes and put it in a kitty???

    (J)James: Howzit! Yup, I was here earlier....but actually had to "work" for a bit before I come back to play in the Tsai-kos sandbox...

  105. homey ℞:

    May as well just fly over and rent a car.

  106. homey ℞:

    Oh lookie, the crazy lady!

  107. Colomaohana:

    midori7: YES! Tasty Crust is da bomb!! Some "secret" recipe for da' pancakes that they will not reveal....I've been trying since I was a little girl to find out, but no luck..... Those buggahs (the pancakes) are bigger than the plate it comes on (kinda' like MAC 24/7, but not so much extras, and BETTER!)...the T-bone steak is ono too!

  108. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Sorry to read about the ASUH's response to the fee. They should get more constituent feed back before opposing the whole idea. The students on the news seemed to be flexible about it. The ASUH appears not to be.

  109. homey ℞:

    Let's see...pancakes...flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, butter, and eggs. so simple! :lol:

  110. Colomaohana:

    yes homey *twitch twitch*'s me!!! hahahaha..

  111. Garret:


    The ASUH wants more information from the Athletic Department, but they cancel the meetings when the Athletic Department is going to give them the information! So, now they can say that they haven't met with JD and the Athletic Department...when that is the case because they were the ones canceling the meetings!

  112. Garret:


    The NBA owners have much, much more money than the players! The owners also get to sell the team at huge profits when they get tired of owning it...the players only have short careers. If Portland is one of the teams getting a loan from the NBA, that would be pretty funny because they are owned by one of the richest people in the world...the team might be losing money but that owner won't even feel that loss (especially compared to his other losses this year!).

  113. Ralph:

    redo the five year tuition plan, raise the tuition for in state residents equal to that of mainland school charging their in state residents...ASUH doesn't want to contribute to the athletic fund and they don't want to pay higher tuition but expect the taxpayer to fund their education with a larger share of the cost to run UH than the students attending the UH system. Then upper campus can contribute more to the athletic program.

  120. FloridaTed:

    The student council seems to be comprised of all 'academics' who don't give a hoot about a successful sports program.

    Do they even realize how good they have it, compared to tons of other schools?

    Talking about spoiled.....

  121. homey ℞:

    Big C (Colomaohana) - no ack!!!! BTW, did you see an earlier post where someone was asking if you related to the Coloma's in Waialua?

  122. Kazz:

    One way to get students to donate is to have our olinemen and dlinemen walk around campus with the ever so popular "eh, I like borrower dollah".


    Ok... nevermind..

    Back when I was in high school we had a group of kids like that.

    They strutted around campus with their tricked-out Hondas their mommy or daddy bought them and would talk to you individually but would never acknowledge you when they are with their peers.

    (ok now I getting bitter... :twisted: )

  146. A-House:

    Perhaps, the ASUH is just like all the "elected officials" everywhere - they vote based on their own personal ....... or along party lines or ...... except the voices of the people they represent. Wonder what Mark Takai would say? he was ASUH prez way back when.

  147. Rob25:

    Yup...I'm still pointing the finger at Stretch!

  148. Kazz:

  180. Rob25:

    homey: Don't worry...if you and Frank get drunk off of CR or Jaeger Bombs...then you both will be in the back of Stretch's truck throwing up eventually.

    BTW...if there is a Spring game on Maui...I am not taking the SF. It's still too rough for me.

  181. Rob25:

    homey: They are the bomb! Not the Jaeger bomb...but great in their own right.

    Koakane: :shock: What? Hoolaulea is this weekend! Gotta go and get my brownie mix! Guess I will be there on Saturday.

  182. Colomaohana:

    Stretch you two-timing bakatade!!! I'm just gonna have to snatch whatever bottle of liquor out of your hands next time I see you!! Say......CR???!!!

    Okay, homey, its too late to make all nice, brah!!

    Koakane: How juicy? I like knowwwww...

    Rob25: Koakane must be related to ME then....buwahahahaha...hehehehe...*burp*

  183. chawan_cut:

    Seen any Kapolei hurricane baseball yet this season? From your previous descriptions I figure the field must be near your hale.

  194. Kazz:

    What's a "haole brownie"?

    Is that a brownie with some sort of cottage cheese/fruit salad mixed in?


  195. Colomaohana:

    Yes, Kekoa (Howzit, btw!!)...he's so deep, no can see his head...although, it wouldn't take THAT much digging for that to happen...

    *WHACK! And Big C knocks that one out of the park, baby!!!* Thank you thank you...I'll be here all week!

    And I AM the gold that was discovered, don't you know?? hahahaha!!!!!!

    And howz, him, insult and run....typical.....

    the thing i do remember at you were always a hard worker,no really, when you were at Ka Leo, you would always be trying to get the story.

    UH needs student support in the 'meanest' way, so i hope they can strategize to get the BOW-ZO'S' back........

    Hiram Thompson goes down... Curran thinks it's his head, but says Thompson took a shot in his ribs. Thompson stays in the game.

  215. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Re- the UH financial/economic challenges - I'm thinking that Jim Donovan is doing his part to unite and inspire. Doing right by the students (for which ALL off this is set up to help) - and getting their acknowledgment and buy-in should lead to a win-win situation. The efforts need to be supported though.

    Thinking only about money is not going to bring a long-term solution.

  216. Garret:

    On Saturday, April 11, the Warriors will fly to Maui to hold an intrasquad scrimmage at the War Memorial Stadium beginning at 11:00 a.m. (tentative), followed by an autograph session on the field. No state funds will be used to pay for the trip and donations from McDonald’s and Oceanic Time Warner Cable, as well as support from Hawaiian Airlines and Panda Travel, and in-kind support from the County of Maui will cover the expenses.

    The “Warrior Bowl” intrasquad scrimmage will be held at Aloha Stadium on Saturday, April 25, at 3:00 p.m. Prior to the game, McMackin and several UH football players will be available for autographs and photos from 1:00-2:30 p.m. on the South Endzone concourse. Fans are encouraged to bring their cameras and items to sign. Parking is $1 and fans can enter through Gate 4 beginning at 1:00 p.m. Admission is free. Beginning at 3:00 p.m., the Warriors will play the four-quarter “Warrior Bowl.” Fans are invited to sit in the stands on the Makai side of the stadium.

  217. Garret:

    Happy that their sponsors will allow them to have a scrimmage and autograph session on Maui, JD said:
    “We’re Hawai‘i`s Team, so we are thrilled that we’ve been able to partner with McDonald’s, Oceanic, Hawaiian Airlines, Panda Travel, and the County of Maui in making this outreach initiative a reality. Without their support, we would never have been able to take our football team to Maui and have the opportunity to interact with UH fans on a neighbor island.” (UH)

  218. Garret:

    Happy that the Warriors are going to Maui, Maui Mayor Charmaine Tavares said:
    “There is a very loyal UH football fan base on Maui — there were a lot of home-based ‘tailgate’ parties going on in my neighborhood on game day! This will be an exciting opportunity for our youth, as well as our entire community, to experience Warrior football action here on Maui and I’m gratified that the County is able to help make this happen.” (UH)

  219. Garret:

    Happy to be a sponsor of UH’s Maui trip, Oceanic Time Warner Cable VP Norman Santos said:
    “We’re pleased to provide funding for the UH football team’s trip to Maui for this scrimmage. The citizens of Maui will be able to meet Coach McMackin and the players in person and that will certainly get them excited about the 2009 season. Aside from O‘ahu, Maui has the most pay-per-view subscribers, so UH definitely has a big following there and I’m sure the fans will really appreciate the opportunity to spend some time with the Warriors.” (UH)

  220. Garret:

    Happy to be a sponsor of UH’s Maui trip, McDonald’s of Hawaii Region President Veronica Kaneko said:
    ”McDonald’s of Hawaii is a proud Corporate Partner of UH Athletics and we are happy to help support the team’s neighbor-island visit to Maui. In addition to assisting with the travel costs, we will also donate 300 Big Macs and bottles of water for the players and staff.” (UH)

  221. Garret:

    Happy that their neighbor island fans will be able to see the Warriors in person, Mac said:
    “As I repeatedly tell our players, we represent the state of Hawai‘i. We’re very excited about scrimmaging on a neighbor island and allowing our fans on Maui to see us in person. We have many great fans there and this is our chance to thank them personally for their support.” (UH)

  222. Garret:

    Garret, sounds like they are students of the Herman Frazier school of management. Delay, deny. Delay, deny. Delay, deny.


    I hate to compare any UH organization to HF...but this situation is a bad example of UH's student leadership. They reject the student activity fee until they get more information from the Athletic Department...but they cancel BOTH meetings that were set up to get them the information!

    They reject the student activity fee until a student poll takes place...but they drag their feet on setting one up and it won't take place for 1-2 years! In other words, under the current situation they have postponed the Athletic Department support indefinitely!

    The other problem with a student poll is that so few students vote in any election. With a limited student representation voting, it is easy for a faction (like the ones dragging their feet on this) to vote a measure down.

  223. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Yea for Maui!

    Gotta go get annodah feesh.

  227. lopaka43:

    Aloha, Tsaiko ohana.

    Stepping out of the lurking shadows to respond to earlier comments about student support.

    Today's ASUH position is a big contrast to the early years at UH. When the old Honolulu Stadium was converted into a City park, I was at the University. It turned out that the ASUH owned a share of the stadium, having provided student fees to develop the Termite Palace. They got a payout from the acquistion of the land by the City.

    In my experience, the people who run for and win the offices of the ASUH are not representative of most of the students, and often were very flaky. In my time, the turnout to vote for those offices was extremely low. Nobody cared who was Student Body President because ASUH had very little power to do anything. I doubt that any of that has changed much today. As was noted, the UH does not have to have approval of the ASUH to impose additional student fees.

    Back to the outer reaches of lurkerdom, esme whoosh!!

    KapoleiWarrior ~ Sorry for not answering right away. Yes, my hale is right next to the field. When looking out my living room window, I'm actually behind the 3rd base coach.

    Stop in for a tall cool one the next time you're working a game! Just tell mama the game went into extra innings. Heheheh!

  239. FloridaTed:

    Lopaka 43,

    I think you've hit the nail right on the head. Student support overall is sorely lacking and it's quite obvious that ASUH is ran by a negative minded, polititical minority.

    The UH leadership can bend over back wards and won't get any reasonable support from this group either way. They won't become future supportes anyway, but are rather obstructionists.

    So, I would say to heck with them, if they chose to be like that, impose the fees and see what happens. It is my feeling that in the long run, we may end up with more student fans, than if we keep rolling out the red carpet for them and the few just spit on it.

    When I saw all those empty, prime seats in the orange sidelines last season it pissed me off. Sell them to people who want to be there.

    Just my angry two cents, from somebody who would love to be there.

  240. Kazz:

    The UH student body needs more UH sports fans like Jason, Chawan, and Kelli.

    Did I miss anyone?

  241. bighilofan2:

    Howzit Tsaikos.

    Warriorfanny. dats why anudda Smith is gonna turn da tables around.
    dis is no ordinary Smith. dis is da Mr. Smith. Mike Smith.

    don't you remember Clint tellin da crook, when asked whoz in his gang? Clint wen tell "Smith, Wesson and Me."

    i'm excited dat dis Smith is the Mr. Smith Clint was referrin to. so unless you like join Rob 25 and Colomaohana in scratchin for sum luv, you gotta ack nice nice wen referrin to Smith. :lol:

  242. Kazz:

    Hey! The former Coach Goo looks younger than ever! Looks like he's still got A LOT of more coaching years to go... But (ahem) I too digress...

    Congrats to Margie Okimoto! Imagine the stories she could tell...

  243. KapoleiWarrior:


    Will do! I work out in Waianae so my circuit for games is only Waianae, Nanakuli, Kapolei and sometimes Campbell. But I'll look for you next time I'm working that field. (it's almost walking distance to my hale too)

  244. JaM:

    Good evening everyone!

    Welcome to Coach Smith!

  245. Rob25:


    February 26th, 2009 at 11:20 am
    I didn't care for Smith's comment that football isn't for women, children or the faint-hearted. Has he ever given birth?

    I am definitely offended by his comment!!! Go ask the Fresno fans how faint-hearted Ronnie and I were at their game last season!

  246. bighilofan2:

    he said women, not TITA's. We all know that you are Ronnie can hold your own against the Fresno fans

  249. bighilofan2:


    I just get the feeling that Coach Mike Smith is a man's man. that Coach Mack is pulling for him. and the young guy just wants to go out and kick butt, you know what I mean. he ain't into the speech writing. he ain't into the feel goodee say all is nice in da world dis guy just wants to tell it like it is.

    watching vball. idk, Stanford looks better than UH. what's with all the lineup changes?

    homes - you going pay for that remark!! :twisted:

    re athletic fee - I remember back sometime in the 90s when they were proposing tuition increases and students were crying about a $50 / semester increase. sheeesh....

  254. JaM:

    Hey Brie was on the news in the "Where Are They Now" segment for Glenn Medeiros. But it was only for a couple of seconds though.

  255. Brie:

    Hi err'body(:

    Jamie & I saw Aunteh Mei Ling today at UH walking down the stairs.
    But she didn't see us "/ BUT Jamie honked the horn.

    Oh, oh, oh, I saw the football team practicing.
    Very very very very very fun to look at.


  256. bighilofan2:

    anybody know where Gordy Shaw and Chris Tormey gonna be stayin?
    anybody got their email? will they be going to Maui? the team gonna stay over Maui?

    can we drop off guri guri to da team members? maybe we all chip in and get da team and coaches extras. :D

  257. bighilofan2:

    Hiya Brie,

    nice writing. keep posting. we outta space guyz love da info. :D

  258. d1島:

    ... and no fries?!?!?

  259. d1島:

    Congratulations Margie!

  260. d1島:

    Vince Goo, looking good...

    ...inside the UHAD complex....


  261. JaM:

    Hi d1...maybe vg and former staff be back?

  262. Rob25: saying that Ronnie and I aren't women? I'm not a tita...just not very fearful. Okay, I lied...I am fearful of flying thanks to a bad flight into Narita long ago.

    BHF2...he's not a bad guy, but don't like that he thinks women can't handle, I would certainly like to see a man give birth in two hours with no drugs. Human race would cease to exist if it were up to men. Like his never give in spirit though...can do that without insulting womens' ability to handle certain situations. It's all good!!

  263. el guapo:

    In the days ST and Bulla refer to, it was $225 for tuition and $15.40 in fees, total $240.40. I think student season tickets were like $2 per game so total $16. Could buy books for $100 to 150 a semester. On a website I found, the inflation of $240 to today ranged from $625 to $1225 depending on the index used.

    See how much students pay now

    Undergrads pay $2976 in tuition and $163.70 in fees
    undergraduate nursing students pay an additional $995 in fees
    undergraduate dental hygiene, $500 extra
    undergraduate business and architecture, $400

    Jason, have you ever been able to buy a book for less than a hundred?

    But the biggest reason for less student interest IMHO? The change in the law in 1986 that raised the drinking age from 18 to 21.

  264. Brie:


    Haha, for practice we've been practicing at UH for track the past two days and since I'm injured I sit w/ my friend (who's manager) and watch people run and when that gets boring I watch the football players (:

    Sorry I can't really say who I saw, but I can describe them.. Tall, muscular, brown boys, high socks, and football cleats :D
    Most are looking prettay cherray, only one time the ball went fly at some runners on the other side. But they was throwing long anyways, so it's all graavy. Bahahaha.

    OH! & for all the DMS Monarchs out there-
    Monarchs playing in the Maui Tournament thing this weekend.
    Played their first game today against Maui High. DMS 0, MH 7.

  265. Jason:

    I am so tempted to make a las vegas-like joke right now, but I fear for my life. Between Leadfoot, the Cowboys' head cheerleader, Jon Hee's secret admirer, and the book-wielding Rambo ... :shock:

    Think the President would help a local boy with some Secret Service protection? All it takes is an Executive Order. :-D

  266. Kekoa:

    Just back from the *Secret* Pre-Grand opening of the Kapolei COSTCO. Wow!...Talk about really going all out! If they provide the same goodies for the general public tomorrow, they will have won the wallets of all the peeps on the Leeward coast.

    No sales tonite, it was just a chance to walk the aisles and eat all the free fuud that they had out. It was very well planned as they had mebbe 100 workers catering the seperate food station scattered around the store.

    At the Main station, you had a spread of local favorites such as teriyaki chicken, meatballs, pupu pups, rice, salads, veggie trays and jumbo shrimp cocktail.

    At the next station you had a layout of Mexican rice, refried beans, taco shells, veggies, cheese, Arryoz Con Pollo (sp), chile colorado, shredded beef and those sugar cinnamon stick things.

    Then of course there was more local style Hawaiian foods at another station. Back towards the snack bar they served Pizza slices of different types of Pizza including the combo with everything on it. Hot Dog. Kim Chee, Chilla-peppa water! Free Cokes with unlimited refills.

    As you were sitting at a table in the snack bar area, and around the store, there were at least 2 dozen servers with trays of frozen yogurt of all different flavors and vanilla/chocolate and combo swirls of ice cream.

    The Desert table had a layout of the grand opening cake plus a variety of pastries to die for. They even had these little bitty creme puff 'bullets' that were onolicious. The amazing thing was that there was no lines of people. By spreading the wealth, there was room for everyone to make a plate with out any stress...and one "to go" plate as well!

    Hey! Like I said they really went all out to advertise themselves as a new neighbor that brought ther own welcome wagon into town.

  267. JaM:

    whoa..this is weird..Brie and I are posting on 2 separate laptops..hers show post 264 and mine is still sitting on #263 after several refreshes..

    I bet your mom loves it that you are checking out the college guys!!

  269. Kekoa:

    JaM & Brie ~ slip over to COSTCO at lunch tomorrow and check it out! Your office is practically across the street! From the looks of things tonite, this was their dry run for the big day tomorrow.

    Hey, I told you I had special invite to this pre-opening celebration tonite! You should have stopped by the hale before heading home. Target coming up next week, standby.

  270. JaM:

    hey Stretch...look is okay!

  271. Jason:

    Arroz con pollo! Hehe, I learned what that was from watching I Love Lucy as a kid.

    Brie, how old are you again? 12? 13? Aren't you a little young to be checking out college men? ;-)

    I bet she spent all day yesterday looking at those pics of Blount and Miah. Me, I was looking at the turkey meatloaf.

  272. Stretch:

    I am sure Dave Shoji can see weaknesses in the Hawaii game so I wonder if he told his sons all the things to look for??

  273. JaM:

    Hi Kekoa,
    Will be stopping by the Costco tomorrow!

  274. d1島:


    I bet your mom loves it that you are checking out the college guys!!

    She prolly likes that better than vice versa!

  275. Stretch:

    hey Stretch...look is okay!

    lucky for you she is injured, she no can chase them

  276. Rob25:

    It seems like a shame that so many Hawaii boys are playing for Stanford.

  277. Stretch:

    February 26th, 2009 at 8:54 pm

    JaM checking out the college guys?? What would Brie think??

  278. JaM:

    Nope not 12 or 13....I really would like to retire sooner than later...then I will have more time for UH sports!

  279. d1島:


    But not for their parents! A Stanford scholie is a nice thing (even a partial ain't bad)

  280. Rob25:

    Tsai-kos in Las Vegas September 18-19, 2009 &
    Tsai-kos who might be Las Vegas September 18-19, 2009

    las vegas needs to know the estimated number for the Saturday tailgate and optional bus planning. Planning is also underway for a Friday night Get-together Party for all mainland and Hawaii Tsai-kos! :!: Rich2176 needs to know who and how many game tickets are needed. Survey requests for tickets will be turned over to Rich2176 at the end of February or when he is ready.

    I will continue to collect ticket requests until Rich2176 is ready (and tailgate and FRIDAY night party RSVPs indefinitely) via the survey at:

    If you cannot get into the survey or have subsequent changes or ETA & lodging info, please email me at: stevem.hnl (at)

    A summary of the data and plans are posted at:
    Please check if your listed info is accurate. This listing also serves as visual assurance that your ticket/tailgate requests were received.

  283. Rob25:

    d! - At Stanford prices...a partial doesn't help much...especially when you have two boys there. I agree...great for them.

  284. JaM:

    Uhmm if I really check out college guys I would be able to identify more of them...I'm like...he plays football or baseball but can't remember their name...just like my students...remember their names based on what seat they're sitting!

    Sorry, WAS gonna catch the rest of the game, but uh..pau already!

    Hi all!

  287. SteveM:

    I think Brie is at the age where mom will borrow homey's shotgun soon :)

    Hi Brie!

  288. d1島:


    Based on el guapo's info, a 50% Stanford scholie would be enuf for 6 semesters at UH :shock:

  289. d1島:

    ...and then there's that little issue of room and board ;-)

  290. Brie:

    Eeeeeew !
    If my mom was checking out college guys, I would definitely not go to games.

    I'm 15 years 8 months 28 days 21 hours & 15 minutes old as of 9:06pm.
    Mommy helped me do the math, sorry Jason :D

    No worries, not gonnah chase anybody !
    Classy lady huh?

    Our prayers go out to the victims and their families in the car & motorcycle accidents today.
    Forever In Paradise.

  291. Brie:

    HI STEVEM! :)
    How's err'thang?

    Mama don't needa' borrow Homey's shotgun.. She got her own ;)
    She's a good shot too !

  292. Rob25:

    Hey at least Eric and Kawika have a sister that lives there... :shock:
    they can share a home.

    Not all players get equal partial scholies...wonder how they deicde how much to give.

  293. SteveM:

    JaM -- so Brie makes 16 at the end of May... think there's a song about that which Aunt Pam might sing for her. Maybe all of us :lol:

  294. Brie:

    Is it 16candles?!
    And it's probably better than my sister singing Happy Birthday.
    Not even that..
    Happy Bir- then she starts craaackin' up :P

  295. Brie:

    K5 News: GLENN MEDEIROS up next (:

  296. Jason:

    Ah, I love that song ...

  297. d1島:

    Journey is at it again.
    Added a second show.

    ...remember back when they ended adding on multiple concerts here as they kept sellin them out (was it six total?)

  298. Brie:

    My Adv. U.S. History teacher :)

  299. SteveM:

    Brie -- I forgot about "16 Candles"... the one I'm thinking about is the one that was sang to mom... :lol:

  300. Brie:


  301. Rob25:

    Hey I think that I just saw Brie on KHNL!

    Was that her in the skirt in the middle? Okay, I saw her back.

  302. Jason:

    Whoa, there's another song I haven't heard in a long time.

  303. Brie:

    No, I was on the side facing you.
    Wearing long pants on the black laptop (:
    I had the UA Tsai-ko version sticker on my laptop.

  304. Garret:

    The City of Industry is going forward with plans to build a $800 mil football, all they need is an NFL team that wants to move. The Chargers are nearby and will soon have no stadium to play in...

    City Council members in the City of Industry unanimously approved a proposal Thursday for a pro football stadium intended to lure a team back to the Los Angeles area.

    The vote helped clear the way for developers of the $800-million venue to begin talks with NFL teams about a possible move to the industrial and warehousing city 15 miles east of Los Angeles.

    At least eight franchises, including the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings, have been identified as possible targets for relocation, he said. Developers are confident the NFL would approve a move by a team, he said.

  305. Brie:

    0:52 in. Black Apple laptop.

    Free play link time. Please ignore my next 5 posts if you do not want the off-topic stuff.

    They appear to have found the location of a genetic material needed to cure MS! It is awesome that they have finally found the genetic material that can fully restore all the functions required for correcting a dystrophic muscle and turning it into a normal muscle!

    Speaking of ANOTHER song I hadn't heard in a long time. Wow, didn't know Glenn Medeiros was teaching now.

  310. Garret:

    This software really goes after people who steal laptops.

  311. Garret:

    Nice story about parents working to make sure that their kids keep up with school. I love how the writer’s 7-year-old asked for a dog and he told her that she could have a dog when she published a paper in a peer-reviewed journal! Father and daughter worked together and 2+ years later they were able to get their dog.

  312. Garret:

    Denver man was seriously injured when he pushed 3 people out of the way of a truck, possibly saving their lives. Instead of publicly celebrating his sacrifice, they gave him a jaywalking ticket! Couldn’t they have at least waited until he got out of the hospital before giving him the ticket?

  313. Garret:

    Free play links pau.

  314. Brie:

    Hey Garret.
    Do you still have the link to the MS article ?
    If so I would greatly appreciate it if you could send it to me.
    Mahalo nui loa.

  315. Garret:


    For all the free play link articles, just click on my name and you'll get the article.

  316. Rob25:

    I heard about that last story this morning Garret. He was Russell Yamanoha's babooze of the week.

    What was that cop thinking? Isn't it better that he be caring than depraved indifference?

  317. MeiLing:


    Hey, girl! So, who were those guys tossing a football around on Ching field?

    Close game, but no cigar.

    ST ~ Mahalo for the tickets! Gave the spare to a LOL.

  318. Garret:


    He was helping two old ladies cross the street. With the ground fully covered with snow, there wasn't really a way to find the sidewalk!

  319. Brie:

    Thank you very much! :)

  320. Brie:

    Hi Aunteh (:
    They are unidentified football players.

  321. Cindy (or cenn)nGreg:

    that 2nd Journey concert...ticketmaster here we come!

  322. chawan_cut:

    you forgot yourself.

  323. MeiLing:

    Thot the people on the field might be playing intramurals. There were girls in one of the small gyms getting out an intramural game before the men's VB. It's cool if students, in general, can use Ching field. It is very "pretty" now.

  324. homey ℞:

    I bet going get plenty Filipino's at the Journey concert.

  325. homey ℞:

    Brie is almost the same age as my youngest.

  326. Jason:

    Yay, we get to see the new field next Saturday at Relay for Life. I'm looking forward to that. :-D

  327. chawan_cut:

    just saw liz chun and the bball game vs utah state lowlights. they showed usu cutting down the net at their place.
    um, what's the big deal? you get the top seed into the wac tourney? woo!
    they can still lose in the wac tourney in reno and not even get into the ncaa tournament because of their weak schedule!

  328. homey ℞:

    chawan - Too bad it was the WAC teams that gave them a weak schedule.

  329. homey ℞:

    Big C - When my boy was 12 he was taller than me too!

  330. Ralph:

    yeah chawan, UH also played the same weak schedule and look where we sucks to lose so's good you're a super UH fan Chawan but the fact is they kicked our butts and at best UH finishes 5th to 7th place in a weak conference....

  331. homey ℞:

    Ralph - Could be worse, like having the same amount of fans show up for the men's game as does the women's.

  332. Ralph:

    if Nash's team keep on losing and playing inconsistently, the warriors in the future might see a crowd similar to the wbb team....I hope JD intervenes before it happens....mbb must be averaging about 5K per game, not where we want to be in a major men sport especially since JD is giving away free tickets and heavy discounts to students and the maniac boosters and there are part of the tickets distributed...

  333. homey ℞:

    I bet the MBB team has a better record next season.

  334. Stephen Tsai:

    Hey, I did see Brie on TV.

  335. homey ℞:

    DVD time! Goodnight everyone and drive safely.

    Brie ~ I spotted you on the KHNL news and called Aunty Diana into the room. She took a look and said, "Nah!..das not her, Brie is prettier!"

    Please excuse Aunty, she has not been well lately. She has an eye appointment in the morning. I will make sure she gets new glasses.

    Good nite Brie!

  338. Ralph:

    homey no seniors on mbb, what we got this season is what we put out next year unless Nash opens up a scholarship and finds a point guard and the others find a shooting touch to beat a zone defense...

  339. Ralph:

    super ferry offering $39 one way fare to Maui to January.

  340. Ralph:

    it is $57 per vehicle plus tax and hopeful fuel prices don't jump to high, and passengers get an additional $5 discount if you book 14 days in advance....

  341. Kekoa:

    Ralph ~ Wessai Chaptah mtg at Nancy's at 3 PM Sunday afternoon to discuss plans for a Maui T-gate trip, and put something together for Warrior Bowl T-gate. Kazz, BG, myself and Koakane in attendance so far.

    Always open to any Tsaiko's or lurkers that care to join us.

    Rob25, the animal parts served here are top quality. The Tripe stew is one of my faves. The Ox tail is also a winnah. Come on down and getcha a mess of 'em! Yee Haw!

  342. Ralph:

    Myki I brought the solutions you requested to Genji's, I reminded myself that day, but unfortunately by the time I got there I forgot all about...come to Nancy's this sunday with the wessai gangee....

    Awrite- Brie! I went to the link to see you on TV. Mr. Medeiros is my #1 son's classmate from Koloa School - 6th grade. They started a band - I got my son a Fender Rhodes 88 but he eventually gave up and Glenn went on to stardom!

    Speaking of bands, Ukuleleboi- sans ukulele is in a band competing for BandChamps tomorrow:


  345. Wayne Ol:

    I don't understand why the Warriors have to have a scrimmage on Maui with the way the economy is. If anything we should be tightening our belts. God bless McDonald's, Oceanic Time Warner Cable, etc. of helping out, but these companies are also having a tough time too. Just look at their stock prices. It's just a bad time to spend money when you don't have too. A lot of people have lost a lot of money, got laid off, lost their homes, etc. A lot of people are frustrated, anry, and upset with the way things are going. The women's basketball team is in the toilet, the softball team isn't very good, the men's volleyball team is competitive, but can't win, the men's basketball team can't shoot and isn't very good either. Even the Warrior football team, at 7-7 is very mediocre and couldn't beat San Jose St. at home and a very bad Utah State. At UH, the athletic dept. has a lot of problems and some coaches are not doing the job and not recruiting enough good talent. However, the UH Rainbow baseball team seems to have some promise. We will see how they do.
    All in all, the last 12 months have been pretty sorry. It's quite disgusting.
    I'm a big UH fan and can't stand us lose like this. A lot of people are.

  346. RDH Event: Online March 12-13 | The dental blog:

    [...] The Warrior Beat | UH football, University of Hawaii athletics … [...]


    No state funds will be used to pay for the trip and donations from McDonald’s and Oceanic Time Warner Cable, as well as support from Hawaiian Airlines and Panda Travel, and in-kind support from the County of Maui will cover the expenses.
