The Warriors have posted a tentative roster. It's tentative because it does not include the 2012 recruits and preferred walk-ons. There also is a so-called bullpen, which is a list of players who might be added to the roster.

The goal was to eliminate double numbers. There were more than 30 last year. This year, there are two. No. 8 Taylor Graham must redshirt this season after transferring from Ohio State. No. 21 Siaki Cravens is facing extensive rehabilitation after suffering a severe shoulder injury in spring training.

Also, two numbers that were not issued the past four years — Nos. 14 and 15 — will be used this year. They will be taken out of circulation again if school officials ever decide they should be retired. Tommy Kaulukukui's No. 32 is the only jersey number officially retired by the Warriors.

The UH coaches did a good job at yesterday's free clinic at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. About 130 kids had signed up, including an 8-year-old who dyed his long hair green.
