February 25th, 2010

Avis has selected HiFlyer as the winner of six baseball tickets to Saturday's game between Oregon and UH.

Thanks for playing.

The owner of the Star-Bulletin has purchased The Advertiser.

What does this mean? Not sure. I was at UH and missed the meeting.

From what I was told, everything will be status quo for the next six weeks. After that, maybe I'll have a job in journalism, maybe I'll be happy to super-size your next meal.

We'll figure out a way to keep this going for as long as possible, even if means I have to do it between making fries.

Keep you posted.  Meanwhile, may I have your empty soda cans?

Craig Sutzmann, a former UH receiver and graduate assistant coach, said  he has accepted a position with the Memphis football program.He will learn his specific role when he reports tomorrow morning.

Stutzmann received the offer through Memphis offensive coordinator Eric Price, son of UTEP coach Mike Price. Eric Price was an assistant coach with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Price and Stutzmann got to know each other better when both were speakers at Jason Gesser's football clinic last year. Gesser and Stutzmann were Saint Louis School teammates.

Most recently, Stutzmann was an assistant coach at Portland State.

By the way, Ron Lee, who competed in today's charity walk, said he and his brother, Cal Lee, are not leaving UH:

Not only has UH closed its men's basketball practices this week, it has limited interview periods. The coaching staff and players were available for interviews yesterday, and they will be available after tonight's game, but tomorrow will be a dead period.

Sure, the Rainbows face a crucial must-play-well period. But I'm sure there could be a compromise that would allow the players to focus on games while maintaining an open dialogue with the public.

While waiting to use the SSC for today's shoot-around, Utah State players ran drills on the UH athletic complex concourse:

Tickets sales are going well for Saturday's volleyball match on Maui.

The 500 tickets sent to Maui have been sold. In addition, another 1,000 tickets were purchased through the UH Box Office.

The seating chart shows that War Memorial Gym can hold up to 2,996 fans, although a Maui County Web site lists the seating capacity at 2,500. UH is capping sales at 2,500, although some have questioned whether the gym can comfortably fit that many. In any scenario, the Warriors should have loud support.

I learn something new every day. Not because I'm intelligent or curious. It's because I'm forgetful.

Today I learned that the turnstile count at SSC events only includes those entering with tickets, which are scanned. In the past, especially at Aloha Stadium, everybody counted — the band, the national anthem singer, the youth soccer team working the garlic fries stand, the dorks on press row. All of them enter through the pass gate.

Happy birthday to Florida Ted and Joon Hartman.
