X factor

September 6th, 2012
By

Billy Ray Stutzmann's injury is disappointing for the Warriors and himself.

He will undergo surgery today to repair a fractured left hand. He is expected to miss about six weeks.

Stutzmann is the Warriors' most versatile receiver. His primary position is the X (on the single side), but he also can play on the strong side and in the slot. He is on special teams, too.

Stutzmann spent the offseason training at Tactical Strength, where Kealoha Pilares went from being a good college receiver to an NFL player. Stutzmann gained 15 pounds while maintaining his speed. Head coach Norm Chow said Stutzmann was adjusting to the bump-and-run press coverages he faced every day in practice.

Trevor Davis and Chris Gant will get the first shot at X.

Chow said he will move slotback Corey Paclebar to the X. Chow said Chinedu Amadi also will get a look there.

    hmmmmm.....


  2. Ipu Man:

    Dat's what I thought!


  3. gigi-hawaii:

    Glad there are options for that spot. Hope all goes well in the next game.


  4. letsgowarriors:

    tell demo to read my email on harding's punts.


  5. gigi-hawaii:

    Wonder if Harding will replace Dunnachie permanently. Seems like he is the more valuable of the two.


  6. Ipu Man:

    Speeding Healing wishes for Stutzmann.
    Billy was a wonderful Ray of light for UH.
    Thanks to him and his parents.


  7. Stephen Tsai:

    Gigi:
    No, Harding is just a temp. Dunnachie is the real deal.


  8. papajoe2:

    Top 10.


  9. Ipu Man:

    Coach Chow said Dunnachie can do those funny kicks, too, but that Harding
    can do 'em left or right footed...


  10. laulau head:

    Top 10


  11. Chicken Grease:

    Perhaps Coach Chow (Dr. C?) can come up with an entire, ahem, uh . . . XIMen unit?

    Ohayoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogozaimasu UH football fans, Tsaikos, all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  12. papajoe2:

    Yea, the commentators didn't notice that he Harding kicked with his left foot the first time. They were too focused on USC expecting a long return. UH did a good job on punt coverage. Harding did a good rolling to the right on the first few punts, then when USC figured it out, rolled to the left.


  13. Chicken Grease:

    Perhaps Coach Chow (Dr. C?) can come up with an entire, ahem, uh . . . X-Men unit?

    H-Men? Ack. Sounds too much like "He-Man"

    Ohayoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogozaimasu UH football fans, Tsaikos, all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  14. Chicken Grease:

    Sorry for that double post.


  15. laulau head:

    Ipu Man says it all...I have the honor of knowing his parents, 2 of the most loving people I have ever met...wishing #5 a quick recovery, and I know being a Warrior, he will come back stronger than ever!


  16. gigi-hawaii:

    CGrease: are you from Ohio?


  17. papajoe2:

    I once coached a soccer player who kicked for a football team. On a bad snap, he was running for his life after chasing down the ball, then got the punt off with his left foot. Maybe it was because of the different spin with a left foot kick, but the other team fumbled the punt and we recovered.


  18. laulau head:

    How did this injury happen?

    Heh. Only when I say "good morning" in Japanese/Nihongo, and the truncated version at that 8|.

    R.I.P. Art Modell.


  21. A-joe:

    Godspeed Billy. You can do this! We await your return.


  22. Stephen Tsai:

    The practice video doesn't really show how the injury occurred.
    He was going for a pass while being defended by Edwards. But it wasn't from being hit or landing awkwardly. I guess sometimes things happen.


  23. Ipu Man:

    I remember linemen playing with injuries with big plaster cases---
    It seemed to help them club the other team better...


  24. Stephen Tsai:

    Ipu Man:
    That might happen on Monday, when Jordan Loeffler returns to practice.


  25. Kukui High School:

    Whatʻs the word on Darius Bright?


  26. Joe Shmo:

    How come you always quick to point out the outside training when uncle tommy is the one gettin the boys ready?


  27. Capitolist/WassupDoc:

    Read Ferd's article on pg 3, Local News, headlined "Senate plans UH accountability meeting" which also describes the Board of Regents own task force set up to address the numerous complex issues surrounding the Department of Athletics, the Manoa Campus administration, and the UH System Administration.

    If you know of well-educated professionals in the fields of business, auditing & accounting who are also committed to the long-term future of University of Hawai`i`s positive participation in NCAA Div 1-A sports, then let the BOR's Executive Administrator Keith Amemiya or Chair Eric Martinson know.

    The task force report will be submitted at the October 18 meeting and will be available to the general public.


  28. Wes'side Warrior:

    Howzit, everyone!

    Healing prayers for Billy Ray!

    Next one up gotta step it up!


  29. madeinhawaii:

    Maybe the injury actually happened during the game, but got noticeably worse during practice?


  30. SteveM:

    Good morning everyone!

    Best wishes and healing thoughts for Billy Ray Stutzmann!


  31. Stephen Tsai:

    Injury happened in practice.


  32. Stephen Tsai:

    There was some thought to moving Bright outside again. But it hasn't worked out.
    Graves is more suited for the Z.
    Alo re-injured his hand. He's redshirting this season.


  33. Ball picker:

    From yesterday ....

    Stretch,

    I'm not a Cowboy "hater" and hope u don't include me in that in that cat. I'm also a Mana Silva supporter of course. Just get disappointed with Romo's performance but damn he did well yesterday. Aloha.

    Go Warriors


  34. Ball picker:

    Ok back to regular programming!
    Just ask DPK. Ok.


  35. Will-I-Am:

    Shmo, i would assume the reason ST always mentions the outside training is because it is common knowledge that the UH trainers are working with the players but we don't always know about the outside training.


  36. tom-warriornation:

  37. (Jesse) James:

    Good morning Tsaikos!!!

    Too bad to hear about BRS but hopefully he heals quickly. Prayers for a successful surgery and recovery period.

    Time for other Warriors to step up!!!


  38. Inyoface:

    Are we thin on receiver's now?


  39. Inyoface:

    Hopefully the backups are sure-handed.


  40. warfan 808:

    Well we need to recruit WRS next year , some big tall, tough ones like salas....hope stuzmen gets back in soon... I saw on rivals .com in the recruiting front page... a section about recruiting troubles of norm chow in hawaii...the guy writing it makes it seem like Hawaii will never be able to recruit well in Hawaii, and that most players turn away from UH ...he doesnt realize that we got a couple 3 star guys from the islands that turned down big name schools and some from the mainland as well, a four star QB next year lined up too... he made me mad because the article kind of seems like hes dissing chow, hawaii football and UH big time on a national stage that recruits look at ...possibly turning some recruits away....
    Anyway There is no comment area maybe ST can contact him and give him some scoops on our recruitin cause the guy is missing somoe info there... he also makes chow seem like he cant recruit which is BS..


  41. Buffoman:

    Watching the introductions yesterday, it sort of tells you that just because you go to a "big name" school you're guaranteed a place in the NFL. The intro of the players showed that a whole lot of those guys came from "directional" schools and small schools. The point being, if you're that good, it does not make a difference where you're playing. The scouts will find you and you will have that opportunity to play.

    It really boils down the the individual (his work ethic, natural talent and ability to learn and perform). That being said, coaching and teaching both on and off the field are big contributors to the development of a player.

    It would be terrific to get the 4 or 5 star HS player, but if we secure our share of these talented, somewhat raw, individuals with tremendous up side to develop with proper teaching, we'll be just fine.

    I have to believe that we now have terrific teaching coaches.


  42. madeinhawaii:

    I think Salas was a Defensive Back in high school and was recruited as such but was asked to switch to slot because JJ saw something special in him.


  43. WarriorNY:

    warfan 808,
    If you were reading the same article I was, Scott Pagano really dissed the UH football program as well. Not cool...


  44. madeinhawaii:

    Got to make like Boise and try to get as many players on the field as possible each and every game. This may impact recruiting as the recruit will know that they will have several opportunities to shine under the lights.


  45. Shorten, share and track your shortened URLs. URL shortener useful when you want to share links or files. It also allows you to track the clicks on any shortened URL!:

    Nice post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I am impressed! Extremely useful info particularly the remaining section :) I maintain such info a lot. I used to be seeking this particular information for a long time. Thanks and good luck.


  46. Inyoface:

    It seems a lot of top Hawaii high school players that go to the mainland and get a taste of the environment always wish they stayed in home after about a year.


  47. koakane:

    morning warrior nation needless to say 8-) what the morning is like

    speedy recovery to BRS and yes should consider red shiRting next year (notice the R) lol

    impressed with Chow on LL last night, he has a definite vision and goal. something mason man told me a few years back. whats more impressive wants to stay within the guidelines set by the athletic dept. yes yes let get an AD like yesterday and not hold this coach up.


  48. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    carry over from yesterday's blog but since warfan808 mentioned it.

    -----

    A recent article on Chow and UH's unique recruiting challenges. It's nothing new per se. But the 2nd Chance U thing is not really a joke. It sounds like it will be part of the foundation of our recruiting efforts.

    I don't see a problem with that so long we can get kids that will take their 2nd chance seriously.

    http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1405215

    Some quotes from the article:

    "Hawaii is paradise, but Hawaii isn't a school a lot of people want to go to for football," said Scott Pagano, a four-star defensive lineman who will leave the island to play college football at Clemson next season."

    "Australia is a fertile place," Chow said. "They don't play a lot of our kind of football over there. They play a lot of Australia football. One of our current Australian players is an ex-professional Australian football player. He helps us in a number of ways. So, yes, we intend to increase our presence there."

    "We need to take bounce-back stories or kids that grew up a little bit after high school and want another shot," Chow said. "We're not like a normal school that can just go into the mainland and take a player."


  49. travel:

    Thanks for the auspicious writeup. It if truth be told was a enjoyment account it. Glance complicated to more brought agreeable from you! However, how can we be in contact?


  50. LizKauai:

    Second chances are great motivators. I'm glad UH is known for that. Mike Edwards could be our next Davone Bess. Praying for all our Warriors and the challenges they face every day.


  51. Shoko:

    For players that leave for the mainland, they either get homesick or they aren't getting enough playing time. Go to bigger schools means a bigger talent pool and tougher competition.


  52. koakane:

    Just had to share and no wise cracks about middle campus cause could be any place. Wait take that back last sentence says educators so that leaves some out bwhaaaaaa.

    A private school recently was faced with a unique problem.

    A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

    Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back.

    Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man.

    She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the maintenance man who had to clean the mirrors every night.

    To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

    He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

    Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

    There are teachers, and then there are educators.

    Nothing wrong with being Second chance U or whatever they call it. No one was a saint at 18 or 19 and we all needed guidance.


  57. Chicken Grease:

    # 52 koakane, I am howling here, hahaahah, too funny!

    Don't mean to hijack, but worth mentioning this newsflash . . . Drew Peterson found guilty of murdering his 3rd wife. Nice to know justice still exists. Law enforcement types, relinquish all sympathy for this guy, you few who have such leanings.

  70. Capitolist/WassupDoc:

    We still have a giveaway - a way too large (XL) dark green Under Armour polo-style shirt celebrating 100 years of UH football. I won it here on the blog in 2010. The sleeves start just above my elbows so if there is a generously-built person who'd like it, I can bring it to one of the T-Gates on September 15 or September 22 or to one of the volleyball matches this weekend.

    If you'd like the shirt, please send an e-mail with your real name and contact information including a phone number to swood at hoku dot com.

    Finally, see my earlier post (#27) regarding nominations to the UH Board of Regents Task Force described in Ferd's article today.

    Hello my friend! I want to say that this post is awesome, great written and come with almost all important infos. I'd like to see extra posts like this .


  76. clyde:

    Y'all should read Ferd's column (good headline, by the way). Kudos to Mark Teruya of Armstrong Produce for providing hundreds of pounds of fruits and produce each week so UH student-athletes can have healthy post-workout snacks. And to Bonny Amemiya for setting up the arrangement.


  77. Ball picker:

    Good one Koakane.


  78. Ball picker:

    Those dorm
    Wahines. Sheeze.


  79. A-House:

    gigi:

    Mrs A-House had the same thought - if Harding is doing really well and Dunnachie is cleared should Coach keep Harding or use Dunnachie.

    A wrong decision to drink and drive may cost Dunnachie his senior on the bench.


  80. A-House:

    WassupDoc:

    your #27 - why does individual need to be "well educated"? person may have a BA, but tons of experience in many different areas that may be more critical than "well-educted".


  81. Shoko:

    Maybe what she meant by well-educated is a person with influence. Sometimes - not always - well-educated and influence tend to go hand-in-hand. Ihave neither. :(


  82. A-House:

    In the locker room this morning, I was chatting with another person and we discussed the "emplty locker room syndrome".

    You have a large room, say 30' x 40', with 250 individual lockers - there are only 4 people inside and they are all clustered together - 2 on top and 2 below.

    auwe, auwe!


  83. Shoko:

    Pitt-Cincy game tonight on ESPN. Pitt lost to Youngstown State (FCS team) by two TD's, yet are only 5.5 underdogs against the Bearcats. Doesn't sound like an enticing game to watch on TV, unless its at a strip club.


  84. A-House:

    shoko:

    perhaps, but I believe she meant with a Masters or PHD or equivilent.

    If you a member of UH BOR, I do not believe that having great influence amongst the general public will be of any benefit to any decision made by the BOR affecting UH and UH-system at large including UH-Hilo, West Oahu, and the community colleges. Yes, there may be or will be a "ripple effect" that may affect the State; ie. who will be the next UHAD. But a decision to "advance $18 million to West Oahu or increase tuition affects only UH-system.

    Having great influential prowess would be most benfical for politicians who seek office at any level.


  85. Warrior Dave:

    #80 say Hello to Mrs. A-House for me. Also tell her that Dunnachie is the better option with his hang time and distance.


  86. Haleakala:

    Alex Dunnachie has expressed remorse for his moment of bad decision. He is working his tail off and Coach Chow has noticed this. I think we should leave it in the hands of Coach as to when AD will get back into the game and not be backseat drivers regarding the punter's position. I have trust in Coach Chow.


  87. Independent Thinker:

    From: http://dailytrojan.com/2012/08/28/norm-chow-suffers-little-success-post-usc/

    ...

    By the time he had left the college ranks for a coaching stint in the NFL, Chow had worked with six quarterbacks who ended up being first-round selections. Depending on your perspective, that can point to Chow’s ability to maximize the talent around him or reinforce the idea that he was in the right place at the right time.

    In truth, it’s probably a little bit of both, but his unsuccessful gigs after USC seem to suggest more of the latter. Case in point: The Tennessee Titans had a grand total of nine passing touchdowns in 2007, the year he was fired from the team despite a 10-6 record overall.


  88. rich2176:

    Speedy recovery to BRS!!

    re#27 - W-Doc - If I was in Hawaii, I'd apply in a hearbeat for the task force. If I can sniff out all of the creative accounting in the entertainment industry on $100m+ projects, I can certainly help figure out $200k. Just from what I've read, I've got a pretty good theory and idea. But, not wanting to risk anything slanderous since I don't personally know several of the parties involved, I'll keep it to myself for now.

    Happy Belated to my GREENIE PAL - STRETCH!!!!!!!


  89. rich2176:

    BTW - I'd do the work for free. UH gave me the tools to go out and make something of myself, so it's one thing I can do to give back.


  90. wafan:

    It is a glorious afternoon! Both jojo and Rich#### showed up.

    Dang!


  91. wafan:

    Quick and complete healing for BRS.

    Too bad . . .


  92. Shoko:

    Thanks for the insights, A-House. I highly respect your opinion.

    Just out of curiosity, since you're a retired Colonel, would you say the education level (Masters or PhD) along with the ability to influence plays a strong role in a person being promoted to a higher rank such as Colonel or General, as well as attributing to one's military success?

    I think, in my opinion, influence - a result of being an effective communicator - can apply to other areas besides just politics.

    It would be a honor to meet in person at the local strip club to discuss further. <--Joke!


  93. Shoko:

    I have a feeling Alex will be kicking when Nevada rolls into town.


  94. jojo ®:

    Liz, up in the air it is for a CC, Kauai style!!


  95. Shoko:

    Rich,
    It's open-season on misconduct. Theories and speculation is always welcome on this blog.


  96. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    #87,

    It's adorable how the article blazes over his most recent success at Utah by saying nothing but;

    "Chow then went to Utah in 2011 where an early-season injury to veteran quarterback Jordan Wynn severely hampered his offense’s capabilities. He then took the Hawai’i job for 2012"

    The article doesn't talk about how after the 4th game of the season his starting QB Wynn was injured and had to sit out the rest of the season. Chow then lead the team to an 8-5 season, including a bowl win against Georgia Tech all the while it being their FIRST season in the PAC-12 conference.

    It doesn't even go into how Neuheisel forced Chow to run the Pistol offense. Chow has said over and over again in his interviews that he is willing to adapt the offense to the strengths of his players. Is this philosophy something brand spanking new? At UCLA they ran the pistol, then ran the pistol, then ran it some more all because Rick was "enamored" with the pistol. It was never about unleashing Chow at UCLA. It was about Rick wanting to be the man. I mean Rick talks more about Chris Ault than he does his own OC Norm Chow whenever he talks about UCLA's offense.

  97. Chicken Grease:

    No be shame if you have "only" your bachelor's degree, OK? Look, you really gotta WORK for your bachelor's, you know? You can't only take courses from your major -- to earn a bachelor's degree, you must needs complete course work from many different fields,, schools, colleges, yes? Bachelor's, you have enough education to be on top of many when you're going to look for a job, I don't care HOW many sources say "a bachelor's is really nothing nowadays." And your other friends who have that degree? They pretty smart, right?

    When the heck was the last time you heard someone get an "honorary bachelor's degree." It's usually that some luminary (and isn't it almost always a celebrity? Right. Brainy celebrities) who get bestowed an honorary Ph.D.

    You have to really WORK to earn your bachelor's degree.

    I know some Ph.Ds (a Grease might be one of 'em![!]) . . . sometimes these guys and/or galsare Piled High and Deep.

    Some of you know that . . . when it comes to engineering, if they gotta do layoffs, the Ph.Ds go first.


  98. Shoko:

    I think Rick is Ault's unwanted offspring from a one-night stand.


  99. Shoko:

    I use to think that someone that has a Masters or PhD were smart people. Then I found out that Greenwood and Apple have doctorates. So, go figure...


  100. tommui:

    In coaching baseball, I would encourage the batter to hit a homerun. As they did not, I quit coaching - after all, no one listened.

    As far as #87 is concerned, I don't know how far or how accurate Coach Chow can thrown a football.

    Often times, the coaching is good but the execution is lousy.


  101. Shoko:

    Okay, going logoff before I say something that will ban me from this blog. Laterz!!


  102. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Aloha Gangeez!

    Chow's gonna write a new chapter for Hawai'i Football - he's done it all and doesn't have anything to prove to sports writers or coumnist or sundry other know-it-alls. Time will tell the tale. Ho'omanawanui.


  103. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Prayers for BRS - I hope he can get a redshirt/medical hardship year out of all of this.


  104. rich2176:

    Shoko - for those that know me, they can attest to the fact that I generally am not shy. In this case, however, I must mind the p's & q's (that's pints & quarts - literally!)


  105. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    "columnists" I meant to say above...


  106. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    In rich2176 we also chrust. ;)

    Rich -
    that package should be hittin' ur office sometime next week.


  107. manoa#1:

    no worries we get miah he's not a starter but he was the only receiver who was'nt playing scared last week and he was balling.

    Utah Qb situation was pure great coaching.
    I miss JJ but you well see when your ready!

    It just struck me that many of Stephen's followers might not be able to access Ferd's column. It's worth a read; try this (SA can't be PO'd if I provide link to one of its own, can it? Ahh, who cares):

  112. Buffoman:

    I don't agree with Manoa #1 on many things but I do admit that he was correct in his observation of Miah. He played like the leader of the Warriors. The guy took some big hits but bounced up and kept playing hard.

    A person essentially assist to make significantly posts I would state. That is the very first time I frequented your website page and to this point? I amazed with the research you made to make this actual post incredible. Wonderful process!


  114. A-House:

    Shoko:

    #92 - I am humbled by your remark.

    A higher degree, IMHO, is glazing over your military record. For example, today's Army does have a "wish" that any LTC being considered for COL should have a MA degree - note I said "should have". I do know that the Army wants that to be the MINIMUM advance educaitonal degree for consideration for COL.

    Experience wise, a LTC or higher should be considered the equivilant positon of VP in a commerical enterprise. Many businesses seek out the retired COLs or GENs for higher VP positions because of their varied experiences of "command" and "staff" positions held giving them a huge edge in planning and execution of any task. This is the very reason that any employer looking for new hires should look at the thousands of young men and women who have held any kind of leadership position(s); even at the squad leader level.

    The very best thing about the US military is the availability of education, training and opportunities for leadership positions; they have definitive programs one must attain to be considered for promotion. In the Army, "branch school" for promotion up to Captain; "command and staff" to Major and LTC; and Army War College for COL and above. Department of Defense guide is any officer completing a War College program should be awarded 21 "master degree" credits; thus, one only needs to complete 3 3 credit courses to attain the 30 credits for a Masters degree.

    The training we received at the Ary War College was equivilant to being a "national advisor" to the Chiefs of Staff or President - our research and presentation was based on this requirement. For example, the area of interest is Sub-Saharan Africa and we are tasked to make recommendations to the President on many areas of interest including humanitarian and militray objectives/goals and how to obtain these including the use of weapons of mass destruction.

    I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to be part of a Corps intelligence and operations sections as well as a tour in the Comptrollers Office, the Inspector General, and command of a special unit with more full "birds" and sergeant majors than an active Army Division.

    Yes, it's nice to be a MA or PHD, but it would be very difficult for them to have the experiences of the many men and women who had the non-leadrship or leadership opportunities be it on "active duty" or "reserve status".

    Doc, #70, you could take your oversized UH polo shirt and make it
    into a nifty shopping bag. Just sew up the sleeves and bottom.
    Straight stich ought to do it. Or do you need a Masters or PHD to do that...
    Oh, and add a strap (I would recommend one of those luggage "rainbow" straps).

    Billy Ray update...

    about an hour ago from Bill Stutzmann Sr.

    Thank you all for the love and support of our son. surgery went well. he got a plate and 8 pins. the dr. said he will be good to go sooner than expected. he gave him a "bionic hand"
    in any case, thanks again. i would like to mention how much of a stand up guy coach chow is. spent time with billy ray last night, called me last night and called billy ray before surgery. had nothing but positive and wonderful things to say.
    IN CHOW, THE STUTZMANN'S TRUST!!

    God Bless you all. thanks to you all and EVERYONE for the prayers . I know they work!

    Thank you my friend for passing on some excellent news about BRS and his successful surgical procedure. I'm really encouraged to hear that they were able to repair the damage straight away! Now with time for healing, he should be ready by practice on Monday, right? Just kidding, of course!

    Mahalo to the parents - Mr/Mrs Stutzman for their faith in Coach Chow. Coach is truly a compassionate man who continually demonstrates his concern for his players every day.
    Let's hope Billy Ray gets back to 100% at his own pace.

    Go Warriors!
    Go BRS!

  144. madeinhawaii:

    Someone mentioned this on Scout.com.

    In 2008, like this year, we had a first time coach opening the season on the road against the then #1 team in the nation. In 2008 we lost 56-10, this season we lost, 49-10. Yet, this time around, our Warriors didn't look beaten and down trodden towards the end of the game. They looked like they were still raring to go late in the 4th qtr. This team wants to play football and won't let the score discourage them. First the attitude, then comes the swagger.


  145. RedZone:

    Wow good news. My best to the Stutzmann clan.


  146. kev-1:

    Great to hear upbeat news about StutzII, but let's not forget the reality of the situation. The guy has a plate and screws in his hand. He is a receiver. Even if he heals faster than expected, he may still have a lot of discomfort and strength issues to deal with after.

    Don't rush it young man. Get yourself completely healthy. I am excited to see who will step up. Somebody will.

    I have a feeling that a receiver or two will excite us in BRS's absence, making his return later in the season icing on the cake.


  147. d1shima:

    Or not


  148. kev-1:

    too positive?


  149. d1shima:

    Coach Chow doesn't strike me as one who plays favorites....there are reasons why Bill Ray came into the opener as the starter.

    2012 UH WARRIOR FOOTBALL THEME:

    "LIVE LIKE A WARRIOR" - Written and performed by Matisyahu

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-M1Y3AfadU

    Feel like the world don't love you
    They only want to push you away
    Some days people don't see you
    You feel like you're in the way

    Today you feel, as if everyone hates
    Pointing their fingers, looking at your mistakes
    You do good, they want great

    No matter what you give they still want to take
    Give your love and they throw it back
    You give your heart they go on attack
    When there's nothing left for you,
    Only thing that you can do, say

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Fight like a Warrior,

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Live like a Warrior

    Some things you should let go, there only gonna pull you down,
    Just like weight on your shoulder they are only gonna make you drown
    We all swing high, we all swing low,
    We all got secrets people don't know
    We all got dreams we can't let go,
    We want to brave, Don't be afraid
    Ohh

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Fight like a Warrior,

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Live like a Warrior

    Your heart is too heavy from things you carry a long time,
    You been up you been down, tired and you don't know why,
    But you're never gonna go back, you only live one life
    Let go, let go, let goooooo, Let go, let go, let goooooo,

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Fight like a Warrior,

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Live like a Warrior

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Fight like a Warrior,

    Today, today, live like you wanna,
    Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire, in a fire, in a fire,
    Live like a Warrior

    No need. Chow get em. He get em. Besides, pretty sure some of the boys got that song on their iTunes.


  154. Kevin:

    Time to get the OUT-DATED "One Time For My Warriors" by Ky-Mani Marley outta here!!!


  155. kev-1:

    speaking of songs . . . I heard the most ridiculous song today on 93.1. Not sure what it was called, but some of the lyrics were as follows:

    something about being "Hawaiian . . . got one foot sand, one hand Heineken" and went on to say "straight from Zion" or something.

    hmmm . . . lyrical genius? sorry if anyone likes that one. I just find it a bit of an unbecoming image.


  156. article directory italiana:

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet the easiest thing to keep in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as other folks consider concerns that they just do not recognize about.

  158. Not an Expert:

    PAC 12, Big 10 and now the Big 12 finalizing a deal with the networks making each team getting 20 million plus a year. The SEC and the Atlantic Coast to follow. The SEC probably getting the biggest deal of them all.

    The 4 super conference and maybe the 5th with the Atlantic Coast to control the landscape of college football. The remaining schools about say 60 are left with the crumbs hoping to be like the super powers of football.

    Only way for the remaining 60 or so is to create their own division of football and secure a format to sell to the networks. Play only among themselves create a playoff and create new formats that will make it an exciting product to watch. Don't allow the 60 super money schools use the 60 non super money schools to their advantage. What happens in doing this only acknowledges that who is the power and who is not. Do not give them the opportunity to compare directly.

    The 80/20 rule will result and interest will be equal. Only difference is the amount of money and TV audience in certain school's area. The 60 non super money schools must stick together so one day their prestige maybe just a shade below if not equal to the 60 super money schools.

    The 80/20 rule of math will be the equalizer over time for the 60 non super money schools. Comparisons will always be made but cannot be to detrimental to the 60 non super money schools because there will be no direct comparison because they will not play one another. The 60 non super money schools can create success and survive being in control and not being used.


  159. Kevin:

    Kev-1,

    I dunno what that is but if those lyrics are correct, it does sound like unoriginal CRAP.

    Dunno when or where this Jawaiian Music came from but somewhere between Kalapana, Willie K, and the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau, CRAP was born and reggae was bastardized.

    Just because some island mokes think they can write music doesnt mean they can because a Hasidic Jew from New York could TEAR THEM TO SHREDS via lyrical originality and musicality while paying homage to his spirituality and religion.

    Independent Thinker:

    "In truth, it’s probably a little bit of both, but his unsuccessful gigs after USC seem to suggest more of the latter. Case in point: The Tennessee Titans had a grand total of nine passing touchdowns in 2007, the year he was fired from the team despite a 10-6 record overall."

    As I recall, Coach Chow was not in favor of drafting Vince Young, but he didn't have the last say in the draft.
    He shouldn't be blame for Tennessee's poor passing attack.

    Oh, and good night (oyasumi) UH Warrior football fans, Tsaikos, all :).


  168. WarriorMojo:

    Kevin and kev-1: interesting discussion re Jawaiian music. I'm not a big fan myself, but I'm not sure I understand the disdain for it. If you think that it just hasn't been done WELL, then okay. I disagree to a point, but that's a matter of personal taste.

    But if the argument is that the music isn't authentic because reggae isn't Hawaiian, then I would definitely disagree. The power and grandeur of music springs directly from its ability to cross cultural and linguistic barriers to speak directly to the human condition. Eric Clapton was just some British kid when he stated playing Black American slave music, which is exactly what the Blues was/is if you go back to its roots.

    So anyway, I honestly think this clip is just about the best thing I have ever seen on YouTube. I have no idea what this song is about -- they could be singing about soggy fruit loops for all I know -- but I swear I do not know of a better female singer/belter than this lady and this dude is an incredible rapper -- and I pretty much have ZERO use for any rap.

    You gotta play this clip LOUD so that the bass line can synchronize with your pulse rate and the horns can mainline your pleasure center. And you also gotta stick with this clip because your initial inclination may be to click the back button because it seems so foreign (which it is).

    But, if you play it long and you play it loud, you WILL find your head bobbing in time somewhere in between the third and fourth minute. If not, if your foot isn't jabbing along to that monstrous bass line, if you aren't having the urge to leap up out of your chair and do back flips all over the room, well, you better check your pulse because you just may be dead.

    WarriorMojo,

    It all sounds the same. Thats what it comes down to.

    I cannot tell one band from the other. The band playing at The Shack in Mililani sounds the same as the 20 others on local music stations.

    Jawaiian has become its own genre and my beef has nothing to do with what is considered "Hawaiian".

    Hawaii had a great musical history with the old groups I mentioned and every one of them had their "sound". Today.... no one sticks out.

    Their musicality is fine. Its ok to listen to, but there are 0 differences between any of these groups and
    too many cover songs that come off as lazy.

    more better UH go get its AD asap, sujpport Chow to keepa going and getting the Warriors into believing in ourselves, play outstanding football, get Hawaii to buy into Hawaii football. We can do better doing good for us.

    A AD, like Rockne, with a great football team, could make deals in filling Aloha Stadium with quality teams. USC, BYU, UW, ORE St, ND, come to mind. also, taking different UH teams to play on outer islands against other UH system teams, at least try to break even. showcase UH-M, reward players.

  189. hossana:

    re: INDEPENDENT THINKER......how about doing some independent research instead of insinuating in your comments that N.C. was not effective after he left USC because 1. he and Jeff Fisher campaigned very hard to get Matt Leinart whom Chow as most familiar with in working with him at USC but the Tennessee Titans owner, Bud Adams or whatever his name is, wanted to go with a Heisman Winner in Vince Young, and the results were disastrous...even Chow remarked that it would be difficult to rein in V.Y. into a pro-set offense esp. into a pocket Q.B. and he was so right....2. at UCLA, all of the top Q.B.'s unfortunately got injured and then Neuheisel switched to a pistol offense emphasizing the running game and never gave N.C. the opportunity to open up the offense....3. at Utah, even with the top Q.B. injured, N.C. was able to navigate the Utah offense into being a productive attack and his play-calling in the bowl game was outstanding which led to Utah's victory.
    Unfortunately, INDEPENDENT THINKER lets his emotions get the better of his reasoning and comes out looking like an IDIOT.
