The Warrior Beat

UH 26th in both polls; going bowling

October 31st, 2010

The Warriors received the 26th most votes in the AP, coaches and Harris polls.

Can't explain how Nevada actually moved back into the top 25 polls. There actually is a possibility UH could upset Boise State, but not break into the polls, while Nevada would remain in the top 25. 

Of course, nobody is getting respect these days. John Saunders yesterday mentioned "Boise, Ohio."

 Gritty effort by the Warriors, who received tough-it-out efforts from quarterback Bryant Moniz, slotback Kealoha Pilares, right tackle Kainoa LaCount, running back Alex Green and defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga. Moniz, Green and Meatoga were held out of practices last week because of wear-and-tear ailments. Pilares played the entire first half, excelling as a punt returner, despite tweaking his hamstring during warmups. And LaCount played virtually one-handed; his broken right hand was in a cast.

Perhaps opponents need to rethink their travel plans to Hawaii. Nevada spent less than 30 hours in Hawaii. Idaho arrived Friday afternoon, left last night. It's not easy playing at Aloha Stadium. The surface is faster — and harder. The Halawa winds. Opponents need a walk-through. UH fans should be happy that opposing coaches are stubborn.
