The Warrior Beat

Good characters welcome

February 24th, 2011

An early step in the job-seeking process is the interview, and three former UH football players — Greg Salas, Kealoha Pilares and Alex Green — should do well when they meet with representatives from NFL teams at today's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. 

All have good-character ratings and clean abstracts. All come from good family backgrounds. 

Journeys are easier when the paths are not bumpy.

In most cases, a losing record is the primary cause for a coaching change. That helps extend the honeymoon period for the successor's first season. When June Jones took over in 1999, all he needed to do was win one game to exceed his predecessor. That he won nine games his first year led to "June Jones for Governor" bumper stickers.

Still, tolerant support from fans and administrators does not always translate into success, which is why it is a significant accomplishment that the Rainbow Warrior basketball team is poised to clinch a WAC Tournament berth if it can beat Louisiana Tech tonight. UH has managed to overcome injuries and other circumstances. It's been a good start.

It appears that at the end of UH indoor sports' season, renovations will begin in the Stan Sheriff Center. There's even talk of replacing the scoreboard.

Happy birthday to the queen of marketing, Jennifer Doran.

Also happy birthday to UH's Cheryl Pang.
