Day after

September 16th, 2012

Yep, the sun rose again.

That's the thing. The world is on a strict schedule. Whether a football team from Hawaii wins or loses, the sun rises the next day.

* * * * *

• Last night's effort was more along the lines of UH's offensive philosophy: Run to set up the pass; run to set up more runs. The Warriors have enough good backs. They also have rugged linemen. Right guard Dave Lefotu just might be the next Vince Manuwai.

• Nose tackle  Moses Samia is set to undergo an MRI on his right knee today. That's never a good thing.

• Darius Bright is expected to miss at least two games because of a separated AC joint. Bright had a good week of practice, earning the start last night, and showed what a threat he is with post-up moves on slants.  That he will be missed is a good sign because it means he was a contributor. For quite a while, he wasn't in the conversation. The Warriors have enough depth at X receiver with Trevor Davis, Chris Gant, Justin Clapp and Corey Paclebar. If they're in a pinch, Charles Clay, who is doing a terrific job at safety/nickelback could play there.

• Chris "Demo" Demarest deserves a game ball for directing UH's special teams and for recruiting cornerback Ne'Quan Phillips.

• The turnstile total of under 30,000 was disappointing. But put into context, it was not that gloomy. First, few ever heard of Lamar before last week. (Two people actually came up to me to do Redd Foxx impersonations until they realized Demond Wilson's character on Sanford and Son was named "Lamont.") Nevada and the return of Nick Rolovich should increase ticket sales this week. UH had a tough starting point. New season ticket sales started the same week as the revelation of the Wonder blunder. Let's just say, there were a few distractions that week. Walk-ups accounted for about a third of the crowd, including the return of the students.

• Time to start selling mini-packs — ticket packages for two or four games, at discounted prices.

• For some road games, there is a UH tailgate, where food and beverages are sold, and memories are retold. Why not do that for home games? UH doesn't get a cut of the concessions inside Aloha Stadium, but what about a giant tailgate where plate lunches and refreshments can be sold? There could be bands and giveaways. Local fans should experience the fun that occurs on the road.

There were problems with the music during the introduction walk yesterday. This is how it was supposed to go:

    First of many victories to come in the Chow era! Congrats to the team and coaches!


  3. J:

    Journalism professor in college always reminded us that today's another day.

  4. papajoe2:

    top 5. Good morning!

  5. papajoe2:

    Suggestion for even more UH students to attend the game. Have a tailgate at UH. Could be one of those giant tents. If you are a student with ID then free admission. If not then $20. Drinks could be sold along with free or cheap food. Then bus to the stadium about 1-1 1/2 before the game and students with ID are free.

  6. Jon:

    A couple comments:

    The warrior walk was cool.

    I don't mind changes in the way the team comes out of the tunnel but I hate them walking out. It's so passive and reminds me of the way the Sugar Bowl started when Georgia came out like a freight train and the Hawaii players walked out almost looking scared holding hands.

    The scoreboard guy needs to manage replays and stats better.

    I saw the fight and it seemed to be handled well by HPD. I go to all the games and I don't think this is a chronic issue. Yes it was ugly but it's not an every game problem in my opinion.

  7. Stephen Tsai:

    At our paper, we're not allowed to use "tomorrow" or "yesterday."

  8. lava:

    Hopefully the excitement returns to the Warrior football program. Haven't seen it yet, but hoping.

  9. Bryson:

    1 thing me and a friend noticed while watching the game is this team is very disciplined in most aspects of the game...Discipline is one of those intangibles that can win or lose a game for you...Nequan Phillips is gonna be something special he's definetly been Mr.Johnny On The Spot these past 2 games...can't wait to see more new players make an was also good to see UH empty their bench and get a lot of players game time reps...

  10. Derek:

    I predicted 56-0. It was 54-2. Close enough. You could tell Chow's team is very well disciplined. I can't recall a holding penalty. Things to improve on. Scoring TDs in the red zone. Defense played well, but you wonder if some of that is the opponent. Nice to see Edwards return one to the house. This week will be tough, but Hawaii has one thing in it's favor. Chris Ault has never won a game in Hawaii. Rolovich will be back at OC. Game could hinge on a couple of key plays. I see a close one. Hawaii by 3.

  11. gigi-hawaii:

    I can just imagine how nervous and antsy the Warriors were prior to the game. I know I felt that way, myself. I was so disappointed at the slow start. Hubby and I were complaining about the lack of offense. Then, the points kept increasing and we were overjoyed.

    Great game, guys!

  12. gigi-hawaii:

    Kevin: mahalo for posting the link to the Warrior Walk on YouTube. I really enjoyed it. Fun time!

  13. kawika49:

    I took the 10and 1/2 Against Nevada.

  14. LizKauai (iPad):

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

  15. Hank:

    Pleasant surprises for me was the play of Tavita Woodard, John Lister and Lance Williams. Can't say enough about the new found discipline and preparation.

    Go Warriors!

  16. HiFlyer:

    Good Morning All.

  17. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Nevada wont be making the same and numerous mistakes that Lamar made last night. Also can't count too much on special team points.

    If our offense improves a lot by Saturday, we will all be smiling to the rising sun on Sunday. We had 3 chances in a row in the red zone and came out with 6 points. That was concerning.

    If our offense doesn't improve much, our defense will need to play like they did last night to come out with the W.

  18. LizKauai (iPad):

    Speaking of discipline, i like the way a Warrior used his eyes and not his mouth or fist when he received a left hook to the helmet. The the First guy get the penalty. And he did.

  19. RS Awakuni:

    Good game last night. Very entertaining.

    Thanks to LizKauai for her generosity, Stephen Tsai for his personal delivery, and Michelle and Sean Achong for making me aware I had "won"!

    Go Warriors!!

  20. tommui:


    And a good morning it is!

  21. Slugger:

    Good morning, gang!

  22. Whats up:

    Nice win by the Warriors but the Offense still needs some work. I said this before, but the local boys that choose Colorado over Hawaii must REALLY be kicking themselves in the butt. Losing to Colorado State and FCS Sacramento State at home was really bad but the 69-14 drubbing they took from Fresno State was embarrassing. The top local talent really needs to think about it carefully before committing to PAC 12 teams like Colorado, Washington State and Washington.

  23. Stephen Tsai:

    Schroeder admitted that the slow starts were not acceptable.
    Then again, there is rustiness when there's a two-week break between the opener and the second game.
    True tests start this coming weekend. After that, it's four road games in five weeks.

  24. jm2375:

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Nice win last night. Good discipline, no dumb penalties. Hope the guys with the owies heal up quick. The scoreboard guy needs to wake up.

    Need to go in search of a new rajio to listen to the game at the Stadium. At least the stuff coming over the PA system is intelligible now from our new seats. (Although I wish I could turn off Mr. Visperas.)

    Great tailgate. Hope to see the MIA Tsaikos next week: Kevin, Ralph, jojo, M/M Lopaka43, uhfan808, hiflyer (meat doesn't get cut up nice when you're not there!).

  25. tom-warriornation:


    Hawaii-San Diego St in San Diego on Oct. 6: @$22 each for 20 yard line SIDELINE SEATS in the Plaza level one level above the field (or $16 for 20 yard line 15-24 rows up from the field) all behind our Warriors bench (UH ticket office price is $26 each). FIREWORKS SHOW right after the game! This will be a critical conference game and our boys need your support; so far we have almost 200 Warrior fans in our group; including former star RB of UH/Dallas Cowboys Gary Allen, punter Tim Grasso & kicker Dan Kelly of the 2007 team, Stephen “Gonzo” Gonzales (former leading tackler UH MLB in the late 90’s) & families of Sean Schroeder, Trevor Davis and Jared Leaf.

    Hawaii-Fresno St in Fresno on Nov. 3: I have 50 yard sideline seats right behind our Warrior bench for $60 each in Section 31; rows 9 thru 12—you can reach out and touch the players! This will be another critical conference game; so far we have almost 80 Warrior fans in our group.

    email me at:

  26. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Kinda crazy BYU v. Utah game.

  27. iwonderwhytheyhateme:


    Is it the MWC who schedules the conference games? If so, how ridiculous to give us 4 road games in a row.

  28. iwonderwhytheyhateme:


    Should find the recruits Colorado are going after and post highlights of those games on their FB page.

  29. duffer:

    ST on OC 16 now.

    Looking GOOD! :-)

  30. Hilo-Warrior:

    Hawaii is favored by 10.5?

  31. gmahoney:

    Wow, ST!

  32. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    One suggestion I have is to put a set of speakers in front of the student section.

    During those intermissions where they play piped music, having speakers in front will help to give the students more energy.

    Whether it be that stupid Gangnam Style or Call Me song, many students seem to want to get into it but the speakers aren't loud enough.

  33. ewamongoose:

    I fully support a UH bento concession for home games. The quantity and quality of concessions in Aloha Stadium has dropped off considerably since last season. Plus, the concessions at the South end-zone, upper level were not ready with cold drinks even as late as 5 pm.

  34. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    I think if they do a concession tent thing, they have to do it outside of the stadium authority grounds. I don't think they would allow competition with center plate concessions.

    The field across the way might be a possible location.

  35. Na Koa Mike:

    Lamar pre-game and post-game photos including the Warrior Walk, Haka and the team singing the fight song.

  36. kawika49:

    #30 no nevada is favored by 10 1/2

  37. ewamongoose:

    USC now ranked 13th in AP poll.

  38. ewamongoose:

    Is Colorado that bad, losing to Fresno St. 69-14?

  39. tommui:

    NAKOAMIKE: Nice job on the photos!

    Thought one of the pictures showed SJMacro taking pictures of the Warrior Walk!

  40. iwonderwhytheyhateme:


    I wouldn't be surprised if Embree gets canned within the next few games. Their season so far is nothing short of an embarrassment.

  41. WarriorNY:

    Wow, Mike Edwards is #6 in the country in average kickoff returns 38.2 yards per return... Great job Mike!

  42. WarriorNY:

    Scott Harding not too bad #32in the nation in punt returns with a 12.6 average...

  43. Supastoke:

    Does BC has new schedule at 9am according to SA...
    "Oh great WIN" "Warriors"!!!

  44. koakane ip4:

    good sabbath everyone, went church yet?

    the entrance walk onto the stadium field reminds me of the Father Bray Iolani coached teams. he always made his team walk to the sidelines. anoddah nice nastolgic touch by coach chow.

  45. beatnevada:

    The sound system in the stadium is shot. Also, is there a UH mascot? UH must make the games more lively to increase attendance. Copy what other schools do if you can't come up with something on your own.

  46. Capitolist/WassupDoc:

    Stephen - and others:

    The Stadium Authority charges rent for any money-faising activities held in any of the parking lots. In addition, liability insurance is required plus hiring a special duty Stadium Authority employee to oversee the activities. I'm chairing a major recycling fundraiser scheduled in the lower Halawa parking lots next March which will include live entertainment and food sales so I have first-hand information.

    However, here's what I suggest: Get a selection of fantastic food trucks to set up just outside the Stadium and the sponsoring organization can provide roving hand-carried delivery service into the parking lot for a set fee per order.

    If anyone is interested in exploring this option, catch me at one of the T-Gates at Richardson Field.

  47. RedZone:

    The sound system at the stadium is just loud noise. They should turn it off.

  48. jm2375:

    Didn't know you could call a fair catch on a kick-off.

  49. Iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    I'm all in for giving koakane a foam spear and let him roam Thr stadium field drunk. New mascot.

  50. Iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    The girl who ran on the field stumbled to our tailgate after and was harassing some of us.

    She wasn't just drunk, she must have been in something much much stronger. She wasn't all there.

  51. LizKauai (mbp):

    It was great to get together with Kymry and klan to watch the game yesterday.
    Warrior Football has brought a great diversity of humanity into a loving family. For that, I am grateful.
    Prayers and healing energy to those who have lost loved ones and are in need of upliftment.

    And Good Health and Strength to our Warriors!

  52. RedZone:

    Looks like coach Chow found his sideline manager. Warriors were well organized on the sidelines.

  53. Pohakupu:

    Don't you love it when Coach Chow had the First Team return to the field at the end of the game to honor them for their effort and first win of the season. And, have Quarterback Sean Schroeder cradle the game ball to celebrate his first win as a Division I quarterback!

  54. koakane ip4:

    and I am for iwwthm acting stupid oh he did that already by running for a political position. excuse me.

  55. d1shima:

    Lots to love about last night's event....and I call it that because there was much more to it than just the game.

    Who knows? Maybe I may have to make it a point to stick around after the final gun and join in the new post-game traditions. ;-)

  56. gobows:

    i wish the stadium would put the 1st down stats and the score by qtr's back on the scoreboard. i really dislike the color scheme they are using. it's nice, but the info is not easily identified, the green makes the data blend in.

  57. manoa#1:

    we need vili da warrior back .the game is boring without him pumping up the fans.

  58. WarriorNY:


    UH 35 - 13 WarriorNY

  59. d1shima:

    Really nice to see Edwards house a KOR. Since he began doing that I've liked the way he "hits it" from Point A to Point B and that made for some irony last night as he fielded a ball that had rolled dead and went left to the "wedge", cut right at midfield and finally zigzagged at the end for the score!

    Anyway you like do 'em Mike...Hana Hou!

  60. d1shima:

    I have a hard time imagining needing much more than a 52-point W to get pumped up. :roll:

  61. RedZone:

    The defense pumped me up from the first snap. I saw how our lbs filled and said yeah. I knew they were ready.

  62. d1shima:

    Yep. Das why I go keep track of first downs.


    "They did a good job after their fiasco at USC, but we didn't help ourselves very much tonight, either," Lamar coach Ray Woodard said. "I think we made a pretty good football team look really good, and we're not going to beat anybody how we played tonight."

    Lamar's HC is a jerk.

  64. kev-1:

    I know people hated the fake Warrior mascot costume, but I prefer that direction in terms of a mascot. Look at Sparty from Michigan St. He gets the crowd pumped and looks neat. I think where UH messed up the last time they went with a costume, was the costume was a body, but the real guys head. Sparty's head is costume too. Looks better.

    Google Sparty and you'll see him. I think people would be okay with that.

  65. kev-1:

    And no, I'm not talking about the marshmellow man of old.

  66. kev-1:

    SAWARRIOR . . . that's called poor sport. Got his a$$ kicked. Period.

  67. kev-1:

    love the running game at UH. Passing game needs more crispness. I think Schroeder needs more zip. But he's accurate, so I'll take that over a bit more arm strength. He did make a very impressive throw on a roll out that looked like it took a bit of power, though.

  68. Will-I-Am:

    I actually agree with the Lamar coach.
    UH didnt exactly dominate the 1st quarter.
    Lamar kick returner bounces the ball off his chest at the 2 yard line.
    Lamar did not do themselves any favors last night.
    I am sure i am missing some other key plays also.

    I do think we will be much improved next week, and every week after.

  69. Will-I-Am:

    A Hawaiian Sparty would be awesome!
    Whats a good name?

  70. Will-I-Am:

    I agree with the head part. Their facial expression is always in character. They also don't look like a pea head.

  71. A-House:

    3 obsrvations from last nite's GAME:

    1) loved the student section - hope they bring more of their friends to Nevada's game.

    2) quick/up tempo by UH - calling plays, sending them in and no letting time off the game clock like the past 13 years - watched Coach Chow - before the players got back to the huddle, he had already signaled the next play to 2 assistants to relay to Schroder.

    3) Hayden (sp) has recovered from whatever ailed him last season.

  72. A-House:

    also, liked the way many younger players got game experience that will help UH in future games this season and years to come - unlike before!!!

    don't know how many games UH will win in 2012, but expect to see improved play on both sides on the ball come 2013 and beyond with Coach Chow at the helm.

  73. Iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Oh trying to make a difference and working hard for my community is a stupid decision? Guess I should just screw my liver and drink greenies and maybe I'll win a Nobel prize one day.

  74. RedZone:

    I really like our corps of runningbacks. I was really impressed with Lister. Our runningbacks were running thru a lot of arm tackles.

  75. Pomai:

    My only suggestion would be that when they enter the stadium they go all the way down to the south end zone and do the Ha'a in front of the the student section. Would have been nice if the music had played. Also if it was me I would put the drum line right in the middle of the student section.

    My biggest complaint is that I had already paid for the ticket and had to sit through a constant barge of commercials on the jumbothron, and I really don't like the commercials when the teams are lining up to snap the ball.

  76. Pomai:

  77. NYUHTX:

    Big Winners last night: Boise State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Nevada, La Tech, San Jose State, and Utah State (well almost). Anybody see what I'm getting at here?

    Congratulations Coach Chow on a nice win and best of luck against the Wolfpack.

  78. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Take a look at Colorado fans at Fresno...They travel well and in big herds.

  79. G-money:

    Can anyone tell me who chooses the songs that are played before the game during player warm ups? IMHO, some of those songs simply do not belong being played at that time, and I can almost guarantee that the players didn't choose them either...

  80. G-money:

    And although this pains me to say... our band needs to get some new material...

    They play the same jingles and pumps they been playing for the past 5+ years! I mean the ones before big defensive plays and after big offensive plays...

    I watch a ton of football and I've heard other bands across the nation incorporating newer tunes into the fray and frankly I know it's not rocket science for our extremely talented musicians to do the same at UH!

    Last but not least, I don't know if this is just me, but almost everything they play is about 10bpm too slow!! Tempo, like momentum and emotion, can make a world a difference in how the music is heard and felt. Don't just play the music, ROCK IT!

    I seriously hope someone from our music dept. reads this and takes it into consideration.

  81. mo808:

    Good Sunday greetings all!

    Congrats to Alawai!

    Great Game and Great New Era underway way with our Warrior Football team! I love the New Traditions and I hope that more can be done to bring more fans back into Aloha Stadium!

    Regarding the food choices inside the stadium: I'm thinking that I might sew some hidden pockets into my University of Hawaii Jacket to stash hub's spicy fried chicken. :grin:

  82. Annoddah Dave:

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs:

    Lots of positives from last night's win and with hopes of more improvements. Is my hearing screwed up or was the new PA system worse than before? There was so much echo and you really couldn't understand what the announcers were saying. I hope the stadium officials get out of their box seats and check this out by going to different areas of the stadium during a game.

  83. Huh?:

    Enjoyed the game last night. Very disciplined team.

    Hawaii: 35-30

  84. mo808:


    UH 42 - Nevada 27

  85. Huh?:

    I sat in the south end zone, red section. The PA system was bad. Couldn't understand one word the announcer said.

  86. HiFlyer:

    Pomai - Don't you mean the North end zone?

  87. koakane:

    #73 not enough community peeps must have agreed or else would have voted other wise.

    for future consideration; players haka by student and band sections. eh the UH warriors can't do the haka in the middle of other teams field so just asking why can't at our home field?

    liked the WW video, walk to the sidelines by team, upbeat offense tempo, aggressive defense. still need to refine the design but a B overall rating. next sat is the test.

  88. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    You think we have attendance issues?

    Check out the University of Miami's stadium during yesterdays game.

  89. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    #87, not enough green bottles. please continue where you left off.

  90. tommui:

    I thought the Warriors looked pretty good - in fact, very good considering the opposition.

    The true test will come against Nevada, Fresno, BSU to see if we are really good.

    Actually if Lamar play their future opponents the way they played last night, they will lose every game.

    So I have no quarrel with Coach Woodard's remarks.

  91. koakane:

    #88 see you stuck in a rut you need to just get off

  92. Pauoa Boy:

    One thing I like that I haven't seen in a long while is a UH defense that can stop the run. The DLine really gets upfield allowing our linebackers to shoot gaps and nail people. George Daily-Lyles looks much improved in diagnosing plays and getting where he needs to be. Beau Yap is mean and frikkin quick for a DE. Love how he just goes on every snap...

  93. DoubleB:

    I was very impressed with the Defense and ST play. The offense was good too. I especially liked the constant motion on many plays. There were drops and near misses on O but the plays were great. The double stack WRs was a good play that could have resulted in a TD but was dropped and settled for FG. Keep it up Warriors.

  94. RedZone:

    Yep Yap had another one of those Katooosheeesss!!!!! I felt that one.

  95. AlanK:

    #79/#80 G-money I'm not sure which is worse, the UH Band playing the same old vamps, quarter after quarter, year after year or those wimpy slow songs that are more suited for a Girlscouts campfire. WHAT IS THAT PERSON THINKING??? How about coming up with some of those NFL-styled sounds that JJ used to get the crowd into the kickoff or those tunes pumped into the Stan Sheriff during basketball games because they get the blood pumping.

  96. wafan:

    Washington folks!

    Lamar v UH game on Root Sports now.

    End of the 1st half.

  97. tommui:


    How's about something modeled after the Michigan State Spartan but with a Warrior body like Vili done and the head in a Makaki'i (Hawaiian Warrior Helmet)?

    Maybe one of our resident artist like (J)James can make a rendering?

  98. tommui:

    The UH game is also on 1016 (Oceanic).

  99. DoubleB:

    #79,80, and 95 definately agree. Gotta work on a mascot too... Survey the student body and student athletes. I kinda want a younger version of Vili.

  100. DoubleB:

    @97 Tom, I like that Idea ... ;-)

  101. Ipu Man:

    Wow, poor Miami. (#88). Over 4,000 comments about it. Gotta agree with
    the poster there who said most people in Miami are having a rough time economically,
    especially young people.

  102. G-money:

    AlanK/DoubleB: I sure hope someone out there is listening, and tries to do something rather than take my criticism personally.

    I mean no disrespect to our musical directors.

    Why not be a trend-setter rather than a trend-follower, right?

    Right now, honestly, I have no idea what we are... but like AlanK said, "its qtr after qtr, yr after yr... stuff for a girlscouts campfire."

    I know we can do much better than that... in fact, we have to.

  103. Supastoke:

    Totally agree with #95...same o same ohhh.? ( SOS !)

  104. kkobi425:

    #96 Thanks wafan just tuned in. Wish I saw the program guide earlier.

  105. d1shima:

    I liked Schroeder's hand signals.

    Was shaka shaka! ;-)

  106. wafan:

    I wonder if the game will be shown on the Root channel again. Maybe later this week?

    Wish I had found it earlier so I could record the game.


  107. d1shima:


  108. kev-1:

    Pomai . . .

    UH 20 - Nevada 17

  109. wafan:

    Dang. 'Hawks beat the 'Boys.

  110. Bigislandkurt:

    Me thinks we will beat Nevada's brains in. I know, Iknow, it's just Lamar. Take it easy. But I feel good that we got them at home.


  111. Pomai:

    #86 your right the north end zone. Also I think we should switch side when both teams are warming up, keep the team near the student section.

  112. jm2375:

    wafan - according to my handydandy Dish Game Finder, you're out of luck, at least for the next 5 days. Sowwee.

  113. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Replay of game on OC16 at 10:00pm tonight.

  114. chawan_cut:

    updated my weekly schedules of schedules. Enjoy!
    Good win Warriors! Hopefully a warm up for the Wolf pack this Saturday!

    For those of you who would like to see changes in the UH Marching Band's musical selections, you need to contact the Music Department directly rather than just making anonymous complaints here on the blog.

    Contact Gwen Nakamura who directs both The Stan Band as well as the much larger marching band at Aloha Stadium. She is very accessible.

    Find out if there are financial or practice time constraints and then share the information here on the blog.

    Here is the complete listing of the Band Division:

    Jeffrey Boeckman - Director of Bands
    David Blon - Associate Director of Bands & Director of Marching Bands
    Gwen Nakamura - Assistant Director of Bands - Intercollegiate Athletics
    Reginald A. Padilla - Jazz Ensemble

    Band Office Phone - 956-7657

    With respect to the recorded music played at The Stan, the University is charged a fee, but I understand that it is covered by one of the major intercollegiate athletics sponsors.

    Backpedaling v. "Shuffle" technique -- Saban teaches the later to his DB's.

  119. Will-I-Am:

    The sound system at the stadium is shot. We could not hear most of the announcements and the ones we could hear we could not understand. Imagine with a packed house.

    Very Boise like performance. Find roles for what you have, build a team. Play with discipline, take care of the ball, excel in all three phases.

    If you take a good look at Boise defense and special teams play have been constants. I like the fact that Chow, an offense genius, recognizes these are the true building blocks of great teams.

  122. manoa#1:

    take it easy even kahuku could of beaten lamar.we will see how good da team is when rolo and the pistol offense takes the fieldnext week.and lamar's defense sucks.

  123. Will-I-Am:


    28 - 21 UH

  124. cocobean:

    I really see Chow as a team builder. Not just an X's and O's man. There's a reason for every thing he does. From setting team rules regarding promptness,dress codes to learning the fight song.

    There's a reason early on he went to the dorms to appeal for support and to follow up by showing up at the three organized pep rallies. There's a reason for the Warrior Walk.

    He's building a team that includes the players, the students and the community.

    Warriors 35 - 31

    I liked the team singing the fight song but I miss the singing of the Alma Mater.

  128. kev-1:

    I like the idea of team unity and connecting with the fans, but I think the fight song is a little cheesy. I'm more of a haka guy.

    However, the fight song does involve the band, the cheerleaders, players, and fans, so I'm all for it.

    Aloha from Vancouver!
    Congrats to the UH Warriors!

    What national network will the UH-Nevada game be on next Saturday?

  131. cocobean:

    Manoa, don't worry Chow still loves you. I think he welcomes the challenge to turn doubters in supporters.

    Even me, I don't hold anything against your Steve-esque like posts.

  132. Kekoa:

    RePlay of the game on OC 16 right now!

  133. Kaimuki Kid:

    A lot of good observations about the game, for me I just enjoyed being at a UH game again and I oove it when I see a begining of a defense that looks like they will be able to stop the run... can't wait for saturday. Go Warriors!!!

  134. Rodney:

    #128 I agree,it's college football!!!!

  135. Rodney:

    #124 Ditto...It's doing things the right way!!

  136. PowderPuff:

    Happy Day After, Tsaikos. Hey ST...another funny segment on "Norm Chow: Inside Access" tonight. You get the fun assignments. :) Great job and loved your threads tonight too. I was kind of disappointed with the attendance last night, but I guess we'll see this coming Saturday. Anyone going to the Nā Koa Coach's Luncheon tomorrow?

  137. papajoe2:

    Pomai, 22-17 UH. Hope they pass it again, UHfan808. :)

  138. Capitolist/WassupDoc:

    I find it interesting that most of the people here found yesterday's game worth watching - in person or on tv. We did not and left at the end of the first half because a blow-out - regardless of who's on the winning end - is both boring and embarrassing.

    Hopefully, the Nevada and BYU games will be more balanced.

  139. Capitolist/WassupDoc:

    For those of you who have complaints about the audio system, call the Stadium Authority office at 483-2500. You'll be asked to provide information about the location of your seat(s).

    We didn't have problems with the announcments but with the radio broadcasts. I don't know if the problem is the quality of the radio we take to games or if it has to do with the broadcast itself. We never have had problems at The Les or the Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium or The Stan, but maybe it's a different broadcasting environment at the Stadium.

  140. K-Bay:

    Most listening to radio at SCC are usingThe Arena's FM 106.5 Repeater of the AM 1420 broadcast...

  141. kev-1:

    umm . . . Capitolist/WassupDoc,

    Would you rather have had UH in a dog fight with LAMAR? I understand your desire to see a competetive game, but UH was supposed to dominate like they did. If they didn't, there would be major cause for concern.

  142. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    It may not have been an "exciting" game to watch. I may even have caught a few flies between downs lol, but winning is ALWAYS fun.

  143. Capitolist/WassupDoc:

    I don't care who the opponent is - if the game is a blowout, I find it boring & an embarrassment. We left the sports bar at the end of the first half of the USC game for the same reason.

    Last season, it was really so frustrating that UH did not play better against so many of its opponents. Those games I watched both live and recorded because I wanted to figure out what went wrong. However, the winners of the first two games in 2012 were never in doubt.

    Полностью разделяю Ваше мнение. Мысль хорошая, согласен с Вами.

  167. BigHiloFan2:

    some things I learned from watching the game right over the tunnel, Orange CC row 3 seat 11. right at the tunnel.

    after the game, alot of players stopped right in front of me cuz i gave up my seat to 2 kids, ages 5,10. on the small side with H stickers on their faces. cute. they were crowded by about 5 other kids, ages 8-10. and players were hand delivering gloves to all these kids. which caused more kids to come down to da spot. it was a chicken skin moment for the kids, and me.

    the players had big Smiles on their faces.

    i came away thinking, no matter what da lamenters say, we got a really good good team.

    I'll be back. don't even think about trying to take my seat. :mrgreen:

    das da bestest!!!!!!!!!!

    People have the right to make anonymous complaints on a blog without doing anything about it.

    How about a Warrior Run?
    Instead of a leisurely Walk?
    "Double time, Heh!"

  172. nwaloha:

    When was the last time UH had 200 yards rushing in a game (prior to last Saturday)? Good seeing us win the time of possession battle

  173. Wes'side Warrior:

    Howzit, everyone!

    BHF2... great words on da T-Gate and da "Aftah pau game" stuffz! I agree, no matter what da "We-not-jumping-on-da-bandwagon-unless-da-team-get-10+ wins" group say, I am really stoked about our team, coach, etc. Gotta start somewhere and build dat solid foundation. Some folks not worried about da foundation... dey like move right in up in da penthouse. Whatevas.

  174. al: it. oxtail stew here i come.

  175. al:

    impressive were the efforts of chow and company in getting students out for the game. they held three pep rallies in the past two weeks on the upper campus.

    last year, i recall quite often only a handful sitting in that student section. one game i counted ten people. two of whom were not students, that's for sure. they were two old guys who had fallen asleep.

    there must have been at least a thousand this past saturday including those two old guys.

  176. Whats up:


    UH 31 Nevada 27

  177. Will-I-Am:

    I didn't just complain about the sound system anonymously here but I also sent emails to the Stadium. I just wanted to discuss it here also.

  178. Wes'side Warrior:

    Anyone know what the (free) student limit is for games at the stadium? I could've sworn I heard BC say it was 5k on the radio. But then after the game, someone posted that they were turning students away at the gates. Junk, when we all know there were about 20k empty seats!

  179. Norman Rauh:

    Provost Dr. Tom Burish stated in the release that “While Notre Dame would have preferred to maintain its independence, the financial realities of the world of college football made the decision a necessity.” He also said that “The longstanding tradition of the schools in the Big 10 conference best fit that of the Irish program”, according to reports.

  180. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    I emailed UHAD about putting a speaker closer to the student section so the music is louder and keeps the energy level up.

    Not sure if the stadium has wiring that would make it possible. Ugh.

  181. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    There is a FREE clinic tonight on "Lessons and Leadership" at Punahou Schools tonight. This will be geared to coaches and parents but all are invited and encouraged to come.
