Chow opens QB competition

November 10th, 2012

In the aftermath of today's loss to Boise State, UH coach Norm Chow said he will re-open the competition at quarterback between Sean Schroeder, who has started all nine games, and Jeremy Higgins.

* * * * *

This could be the last football meeting between Boise State, which heads to the Big East next year, and Hawaii. It is highly unlikely either would want to continue this series as non-conference opponents.

Then again, with the constant realignments, don't rule out the teams being in a league together in the future. There are only so many teams west of the Rockies.

* * * * *

Clink, clink.

Let's raise a birthday toast to Lynette Eastman.

  8. BaddaMo'oMan:

    Das auight, Das OK, we no need'em

  9. Shoko:

    Yep, being the last time the Warriors face Boise State, people should show up regardless of being 29 point underdogs.

    I'll definitely be watching. Sometimes you can learn more in defeat than you can from a victory.

    Go Warriors!

  10. Chicken Grease:

    Up WIErly, kev-1. FrWIIE breakfast or something? Yuk yuks :P

    Thanks to:
    of course, kev-1
    . . . and Mr. Stephen Tsai for waking up early [WIEly] today, game day! ;)

  11. kev-1:

    What Kobe want Kobe get. Sad.

  12. Chicken Grease:

    Add Shoko in to the list of "thank you for waking up early [WIEly] on game day!

    Woah. Happy b-day Lynette Eastman; can use Jäger fuel my kuruma (car), mein Gott (German expression intended).

  13. kev-1:

    Sup Grease

    Bama and A&M today before the Warrior game. Upset?

  14. papajoe2:

    CG, da Wie ting pau already. not funny. overkill.

  15. Stephen Tsai:

    We were at one of my kid's volleyball matches a few years ago.
    An opponent slammed the ball for a kill. He made the big-body stance.
    We yelled: "Hit is harder!"
    Opponent had another slam. He had another big-body stance.
    We yelled: "Hit it harder!"
    "Hit it Harder!"
    Finally, he hit it long. He stuck the finger at us. We yelled: "Hit it softer!"
    I'm reminded of that every time UH is more than a 25-point underdog.

  16. Shoko:

    Jager brings up some good memories. And bad ones as well.

  17. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Happy Birthday Lynne! Safe travels to you and Bulla.


  18. Stephen Tsai:

    I had Jager once.
    I started chanting: J-E-T-S, Yets! Yets! Yets!

  19. 3-Prong:

    Lets Go Bow's, Let's Go Bow's (beckoning defenses of old!

  20. Chicken Grease:

    Hello ther2, kev-1. What do YOU think about getting The Time (oh-eee-oh-eee-oh!) or One Direction (Oh!!! Oh-oh!!!!!) to make benefit glorious benefit concert of athletic department?

    Watching this Michigan game. UH Warriors will be great in 2016. :)

  21. kev-1:

    Ahhh, Jager . . . doesn't really taste like anything that should be ingested, does it?

  22. kev-1:

    Not happening. I challenge you to find anyone in the UH marketing department willing to say concert, benefit, and money in the same sentence without fear of losing their job.

  23. Chicken Grease:

    Thja's why a Grease fuel his car w/it, yuk yuks.

    Watching Ark'-S. Carolina game, yes, too. Why's it CBS coverage of sports feels like The Price is Right gonna feed in at any moment?

  24. kev-1:

    L-ville looking like they may not stay unbeaten

  25. mo808:

    Morning Again Folks!

  26. Chicken Grease:

    # 18, Mr. Tsai -- at least it wasn't "JWIEts, JWIEts, JWIEts!" bwahahahhaah! [!]

  27. mo808:

    (Hmmm...coinkeedink that the two are on the same day? They both use boots fer walkin'! :-? )

  30. Shoko:

    Alot of prognosticators are predicting Louisville in the Orange Bowl. Wouldn't it be ironic that the Orangemen of Syracuse end their hopes for a BCS bowl?

    CG, da Wie ting pau already. not funny. overkill.

    Heh. WIEisms are always funny; is like pie -- great any time of day. A Grease'll ease (read WIEse :P ahhhh!!!!!) Up on it, though, for you, papajoe2 ;) . A Grease hears people at the bar laugh at every instance, bwaaaaahaahah!

    What say you about The Time or One Direction at the Stan Sheriff, papjoe2?

    GO WARRIORS!!!!!!

  32. BKekoa ( 9th isle):

    Good morning laulauhead (rain GOOD!!! Warriors tend to win when rain :)], Slugger, d1shima, BKekoa for waking up early on game day.

    All "early good morning from a Grease wagers" are now closed!

    Not only Louisville. Irish not going beat a p.o'd UISC this year.

  39. Chicken Grease:

    Ah. Add one more -- good morning LizKauai . . . thank you for waking up early :) .

  40. gmahoney:

    Good morning, A Grease. It's a great day for a football game! Go Warriors! and a Happy Birthday to Mrs. Bulla!

  41. kev-1:

    LizK . . . drop of some of that poi to the team

  42. Chicken Grease:

    R.I.P. Chris Gaines

  43. cocobean:

    Boise is beatable.

    I no lose fight yet.

    Warriors be prepared to defend yourselves.

  44. kev-1:

    who is that?

  45. NYUHTX:

    Time for the Warriors to another one. We got the talent, hopefully the coaching staff has gotten up to speed.

  46. NYUHTX:

    What couldn't I even say it?

  47. WarriorNY:

    Here, Here! Happy Birthday!
    (I'll use any excuse to take a shot of Jager) Lol...

    Let's hope our boys play hard tonight... I just hope they target Darius Bright a little bit. He causes such a mismatch... Just throw the ball his way!

    Mr. Grease,
    Your Superman 2 reference the other day was hilarious. Did you see end up seeing Skyfall??? (don't give out any spoilers) How do you rank Daniel Craig as Bond? I think he's very good... Probably my favorite behind only Sir Sean Connery...

  48. Chicken Grease:

    Have a feeling Peterson might just decide to throw this game same way he threw the Aloha Bowl game against East Carolina? (a victory by the pIrate which a Grease will believe just as a Grease believes that he has a roomful of gold?)

    Play right, play good, enjoy getting turned into horse burgers, Broncos, GO WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!

  49. Chicken Grease:

    WarriorNY -- yeah, got to see preview/early screening.

    Hate to say it (still kinda' skeptical of Craig as the definitive 007) . . . but, Skyfall is the best cinematic Bond ever. THIS is what Fleming was trying to get across.

    Hope you can manage to see it in all that's going on there, WarriorNY. REALLY one of those films like Se7en or The Sixth Sense where the film's spoilers will be Pandora's box'd after the opening weekend. So, stay away from those who have already seen Skyfall and go see it if can :) .

  50. WarriorNY:

    Thanks so much for your concern for us East Coasters. My family and I made out relatively well. There are a lot of people that have it so much worse.

    The gas problem is serious... I can only buy $25 worth of gas every other day... It's insane...

    But at least we have the....

    J-E-T-S, Yets, Yets, Yets... :-)

  51. AlaWai:

    Warriors 37 Nags 35

    Turn up the Heat!

  52. duffer:

    Hey ST

    Coach is on Maui.

  53. WarriorNY:

    Mr. Grease,
    I actually saw Skyfall yesterday. But I just didn't want to ruin it for anyone else...

    Cinematically of all the recent Bond films, my fave is Casino Royale (except the poker scenes)... But Skyfall is VERY GOOD... The director Sam Mendes is one of my all time favorites...

  54. gobows:

    boise will be looking to return to the mwc when the big east is no longer an automatic qualifier for a bcs money bowl. the major bowls are looking to realign back with the conferences like it was before the bcs. they already have the big 10 and pac-12 in the rose, and the big 12 and sec in the sugar. the orange will lock in the acc. highly doubt the orange or fiesta will reach out to the big east, when it would be more lucrative to take a big 10 or sec team that is a big name that travels well like wisconsin, michigan, ohio state, georgia, florida, alabama, or lsu. the big east offers cincinnati, louisville, or rutgers which are mid-majors that happen to be in a bcs conference (currently). pittsburgh hasn't been a power since dan marino and hugh green played there. syracuse hasn't been relevant for 10 years.

  55. Hank:

    #53 the Skyfall Bond Girl is a knockout.

  56. SteveM:

    Good morning everyone!

    ... Tsai-ko karaoke diva, super cruiser, and lead (Jager) bombardier! :)

  57. Hank:

    ...if Syracuse can beat #9 Louisville...

    ...if Army can challenge Rutgers....

    ...if Lafayette can lead Florida in the 4th...

    Why NOT!

    Go Warriors!

  58. WarriorNY:

    You are correct, sir...

  59. Chicken Grease:

    # 57, heh, indeed. iwonderwhynot?

  60. Chicken Grease:

    Maybe SAWARRIOR on a beach sitting, elbows perched 'pon bent knees, satring out into the ocean. Thinking to self, "wow. I can post again pretty soon." Then smirks a bit. Allows the sea breeze to pass by him. Listens to the crashing waves, heh.

  61. WarriorNY:

    Mr. Grease,
    That sounds like a Bond reference... :-)

    But SAWARRIOR has been a man of his word... I respect that...

  62. WarriorNY:

    Lets give him a break...

  63. cocobean:

    CG. was at the 07 Hi Bowl. At halftime I was taunting some BSU fans about their team coming out here for a vacation.

    But in BSU's defense, ECU had Chris Johnson. Think he had over 400 all purpose yards. Didn't realize how good he was until he started making noise in the NFL. He's the reason BSU lost.

    Boise is beatable.

  64. Chicken Grease:

    # 63, cocobean . . . yes, yes. Here's to the Warriors beatble-g them today, wanna see it, wanna see it, like Alec Baldwin's character in Glengary Glenross says, "GET MAD!!!!!" ;)

    Heh, WarriorNY # 62 . . . wasn't the agreement 2 days, though? Pumpkin turn back alreadies, whea he stay? ;)

  65. MattO:

    Anyone know if the game is streaming online? :)

    2010 [UCLA]: 20.2
    2011 [UTAH]: 25.0
    2012 [HAWAII, 8 GAMES]: 20.3

    2010 37.5 pts per game vs FBS teams only

    2011 29.1

    2012 42.6 - Chow

  70. d1shima:

    68. +1

  71. gobows:

    #67 if chow couldn't get it done at uclan, he's never going to be successful at UH with his current philosophy. it's not about getting his players, because he had top recruits at ucla, he had size, speed, and depth. even if he gets "his" players at UH, the results will still be the same with his current philosophy. chow was real good, but he needs to evolve.
    how the hell is mora getting his ucla team to score 37 pts a game (21st in the nation), with chow's players.
    one thing good, the next UH coach will probably have some players to work with.

  72. d1shima:

    NC was the HC at UCLA?

  73. madeinhawaii:

    Nah, they were doing bad enough on defense without his help.

  74. NYUHTX:

    Ignore your backups at your own peril.

    Hawaii beats Alabama 37-29. Hawaii's backup QB Jason Whieldon won the game by throwing 4 TD's and running for a TD.

  75. d1shima:

    Johnny Football!

  76. NYUHTX:

    Texas AM up 20-0 on Alabama in the first.

  77. tommui:


    Beat Boise!

  78. d1shima:

    Get the kleenex ready for AJ McCarron...might need 'em earlier this week

  79. gobows:

    #76 that probably was the 1st time in his life that timmy chang was benched.

  80. Slugger:

    ST - did I miss da Warrior Walk????

  81. Slugger:

    Happy birthday, Lyn!!!

  82. Stephen Tsai:

    Yep, Warriors are on the near side, as we like to say in the radio biz.

  83. lava:

    Looked over the BSU game plan. SS is in for real trouble today. This will be very painful. Recruiting will take a big low today.

    Chow is the wrong man for the job. SS is the wrong man for qb. Put them together and you get what we got now.

  84. Stephen Tsai:

    I miss Fred Antone.

  85. Chicken Grease:

    Aren't there broncos in the Gangnam Style video?

  86. Shoko:

    UMass finally won their first game of the season, as well as their first game as a FBS team. Of course, it was against lowly Akron. But a win is a win!

  87. Stephen Tsai:

    Out of curiosity, who would you have hired as head coach?

  88. Shoko:

    Maybe lava is a big fan of Koetter.

  89. Stephen Tsai:

    Now remember, Rolo and Miano weren't finalists. Koetter was out because of salary and problems at ASU. It was down to Akina and Chow.

  90. Stephen Tsai:

    If Rolo got the job, the odds were that Woolsey would be the starting quarterback.

  91. Shoko:

    So, Koetter wasn't really a viable solution for the job because he would cost too much?

  92. Shoko:

    Rolo would pick Woolsey over Graves?

  93. Chicken Grease:

    Lot of time in this Texas A&M -- they with their cursed white uniforms and weird traditions -- and Alabama game. Can't just "beat" the # 1 team in the nation.

    Out of curiosity, a Grease wonders if there are any movies at which lava might've cried. ;)

  94. Stephen Tsai:

    Rolo would have picked Woolsey over Graves.

  95. Stephen Tsai:

    Koetter was out because of the ASU problems. Without them, he would have been out of UH's price range of $550,000.
    Remember UH was trying to dump Mack's contract, too.

  96. Shoko:

    No bowl eligibility for the Lobos. They had a nice run, tho.

  97. Chicken Grease:

    Approx' T-minus 20 mins, folks!

  98. Shoko:

    The days of Mack's termination has been pretty much a blur. All I remember is waking up one day and finding out Chow got hired to replace him. It was during the holidays when that happened, so I assume I must have been drunk. ;)

  99. Stephen Tsai:

    If some people had their way, he would have been canned before the BYU game. It was decided to wait. He was then going to be canned after the game. It was decided to wait until after the banquet. An hour after the banquet ended, Mack "retired."

  100. Chicken Grease:


  101. Shoko:

    I dunno why they would fire him before the BYU game. Its not like it took them a long time to find a replacement. Pretty screwed up how they fired him, tho.

  102. Shoko:

    I'm thinking there will be alot of Bronco fans at the game since its the last game that will be played at Aloha Stadium. Besides, its getting pretty cold up in Boise. Here too!

  103. Chicken Grease:

    Political Correctness (PC)helped "do" Mack in; in this case, PC was like the evil small person with the poisoned dagger, ordered by the overlord to plunge one last one in just for kicks.

    Wished he fought that situation more and where the f' was the ACLU to aid Mack as quickly as they get to the side of some smelly pony-tailed Lefty?

    Sorry, politics. A Grease will stop. Gotta get going anyways :) .

    End of days (well, just FOR today) for 'bama.

  104. Chicken Grease:

    Oops. Spoke too soon re: 'bama, End of days of.

  105. papajoe2:

    Looks like Alabama may go down. Losing by 12 with 6+ minutes to go.

  106. papajoe2:

    Very small crowd on tv.

  107. Shoko:

    Six Minutes is a long time.

  108. Chicken Grease:

    Guess again, papajoe2 . . .

  109. Shoko:


  110. Chicken Grease:

    Oh yeah. BIG time "guess again." 'Bama knocking on the door very loudly.

  111. WarriorNY:

    Wow, Alabama might go down!

  112. Chicken Grease:

    Haahhaaha, ah, 'bama. Had your chance.

  113. Chicken Grease:

    Looks like Chow heard a Grease suggestion to get rid of as much white color as possible -- green pants; not white pants this game. ;)

  114. Committed Road Warrior:

    That was quick...

  115. UHfan808:

    Good late afternoon Tsaikos and Tsaikette, Lurkers and Lurkettes --

    Well I'm here early at the Aloha Stadium and game just started, and really hoping for the best.

    I fugure if the team bothered to suit up and planned to play today that I would bother to come be here support them in person too.

    Good to see everyone at the T-gate today, my heart feels good now.

    Thank you for the delish fuud dishes today. Didn't to try everything cuz it just wouldn't fit :wink:

  116. WarriorNY:

    Geez, I didn't realize the game started... Howd they get that start time at home?!?...

  124. mo808:

    Happy Birthday USMC, OoRah!

  125. mo808:

    Good job D! Good job Haku!

  126. WarriorNY:

    That makes a lot of sense... I just assumed it would be later... This is primetime on the East Coast on national TV... Come on Warriorrs!! Let's beat these guys!

  127. Slugger:

    ST - Tell Curran he's calling Dee Maggitt John Hardy-Tuliau. Dee is 23. JJT is 33.

  128. Chicken Grease:

    That IMUA on he back of Warrior jerseys looks HUGE on TV, hahaahah, love it.

    Better leave the house already.

  129. papajoe2:

    a Grease, that's why Alabama was ranked #1. They almost came back. Which is why I said the MAY go down. Now really down. Mix up the polls. Yeah!

  130. mo808:


  131. papajoe2:


  132. papajoe2:

    That's why we not a good team. Common Warriors!

  133. papajoe2:

    BSU changed qbs on 3rd down. No good.

  134. Chicken Grease:

    Boise getting a taste of what it's like to play a team who has same colored uniform as the football field.

    Glue factory, horse burgers, glue factory, horse burgers, glue factory.

  135. papajoe2:

    Thought he didn't make it.

  136. papajoe2:

    Review from upstairs. I don't think he made the 1st down.

  137. papajoe2:

    Yikes, he made it.

  138. Chicken Grease:

    Did the team -- including Chow and coaching staff -- during the Warrior Walk wear gray athletic T-shirts with "FIDO" emblazoned on the front.

  139. mo808:

    Good job Haku!

  140. Chicken Grease:

    WarriorNY -- see. Grease's post, the centenarially # 100, above, for TV programming information.

  141. Matt:

    Go Warriors. Come on offense!

  142. Slugger:

    Why did Wil G get ejected from the game?

  143. mo808:

    Not sure Slugger but hubs said "he threw a punch"!

  144. mo808:

    I guess someone must have been in the way when he did...

  145. mo808:

    Lets go D!

  146. papajoe2:

    Gotta get rid of the ball as per commentator. What we been saying.

  147. WarriorNY:

    Mr. Grease...
    Thanks for telling me after I found it... Lol...

  148. Chicken Grease:

    November 10th, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Why did Wil G get ejected from the game?

    Oh. We (read: WIE) back doing WIE- and WII-isms?

    Embarrassing -- the NBC announcers understand what Chow's about light years ahead of what most Warrior/Chow naysayers say.

  149. Harvard:

    Coach sit Schroeder down already think of the mental and emotional well being of your team. He isn't cutting it right now. Who is he throwing to right now?

  150. mo808:

  151. WarriorNY:

    Why does it feel like our D hasn't played this well since Lamar...

    And we're down 21-7...


  152. anne:

    any live stream? mahalo.

  153. BowNatic:

    Game over man! Game over!

  154. Shoko:

    Very nice!

  155. MattO:

    Fake punt!!

  156. mo808:


  157. papajoe2:

    Missed it Mo808. Who threw the pass?

  158. mo808:

    Throw it again!

  159. mo808:

    19 to 87 three plays ago!

  160. mo808:

    Going for it on four down...

  161. papajoe2:

    4th and 18. Go for it? Thinking about it.

  162. madeinhawaii:

    this link works right now

  163. MattO:

    If I wish really hard, maybe Higgins will appear.

  164. mo808:

    Oh guess not

  165. MattO:

    Papa - was a direct snap to one of our RB or TEs

  166. papajoe2:

    defense look like they getting tired.

  167. papajoe2:

    Thanks MattO.

  168. papajoe2:

    Too much time. No threat at all for a sack or hurry.

  169. MattO:

    Ugh - bad tackling today

  170. Black Bean Chow Fun:

    This is the most embarrasing offensive effort in UH football history! Auwe!! Enough already Chow!!!

  171. greenthumb:

    If you want HD, the game is also on 1210.

  172. Black Bean Chow Fun:

    Not the fault of the D. Defense is undermanned and we never had a lock down since the Wags and Tomey days.

  173. oldie:

    Why was the PA blaring when Hadden trying the FG?

  174. MattO:

    Fault lies on both sides of the ball. That TD run proves it.

    Let's face it, aside from Mike Edwards, nothing else works. Right now, anyway.

  175. 3-Prong:

    #165 MattO: turn your Bud Light label toward da team with me. Maybe Chow will then put Higgins in. Hehe

  176. MattO:

    LOL- bud light label is out, 3-Prong!

  177. Black Bean Chow Fun:

    "Held the ball just a little too long..." NBC Announcer says. Come'on Chow!!!??? bring on a new QB!!!

  178. papajoe2:

    I think d is getting tired and immoralized. Bad combo.
    O cannot get a first down except for fake. Cannot get 2 in a row.

  179. Wassup:

    I don't know what Chow is trying to prove with Schroder, but through this, he is really losing the fanbase. That will end up being his demise as a head coach. Hard to get our fans back after this season.

  180. UHfan808:

    Oh yes:

    Happy Birfday, amazingly talented Lyn!!!

    May you have many many many more!!!

  181. papajoe2:

    BBCF, not the first time he said that in this game.

  182. MattO:

    #177, that reminds me of Bob Uecker in Major League, "Juuuuust a bit outside."

  183. Slugger:

    Thanks, mo808 & Leonard.


  184. Whats up:

    Put in somebody else at QB already, SS is holding on to the ball too long again. Repeat of the Fresno game, the defense is smoked tired and the turnover bug is killing Hawaii.

  185. 3-Prong:

    MattO: not working, get out da green bottles......common Tsaikos! Everybody!!!

  186. papajoe2:

    What you got to lose coach? Our as* is getting kicked again.

  187. MattO:

    Lol - I've turned out my entire six pack!!'

  188. Slugger:

    Why are they not using Sterling Jackson?

  189. WarriorNY:

    I'm sorry but how many dropped passes does Miah have this year?

  190. papajoe2:

    Nah, didn't hold the ball too long again did he?

  191. MattO:

    0-7 for 3rd down - chow, put your €*^%{€ ego aside and put in Higgins who can release quicker and scramble. Goodness.

  192. MattO:

    Warrior - at least 2 a game. Something's up.

  193. 3-Prong:

    Aaaaah, not working MattO. Only you an me as why.

  194. Wassup:

    Is it not obvious at this point that trying a different QB may be in order?

  195. MattO:

    Lol - maybe he's coming out 2nd half das why

  196. Black Bean Chow Fun:

    Minus Black Bean Chow Fun from the fanbase. Did not go to game and now changing the channel to watch Teo kick okole. Aloha Chow! I hope you are happy that you are turning off all the fans!!

  197. MattO:

    Wassup - it's as obvious as the day is long, but someone's ego is even bigger

  198. papajoe2:

    Punter ran. Not even looking fast. 1st down by plenty.

  199. papajoe2:

    No worry, I going post positive comments when they happen. Not too much individual though.

  200. papajoe2:

    This is our house!

  201. MattO:

    Our house is getting trashed

  202. madeinhawaii:

    Anybody know what the spread was for the 2nd half?

  203. greenthumb:

    Our D looked good on that series until the punter ran. Must remember Boise = misdirection.

  204. Wassup:

    No place for egos when you are dead last in the nation. Our players are much,much better than this. Whatevas Chow.....

  205. MattO:

    Good run, Joey!

  206. MattO:

    We ran out the half? Really? Sigh.

  207. papajoe2:

    At least its over. We got smashed again. Oh, well.

  208. Jack Flash:

    We suck. Change QB already. Go Warriors.

  209. oldie:

    I can understand sticking with Shroeder if Chow was developing him for next year. But Graham in the wings, it's time for Chow to do some experimenting the rest of this season.

  210. Shoko:

    0-7 on 3rd conversions.
    67 total yards

    Bring in the backups, please.

  211. markazulu:

    This is ridiculous BLOWN OUT before half time AGAIN! THIS IS WHY people are upset this year. We arent just getting out played we are getting out coached. I understand he doesnt wanna start a controversy but the offense is not BORING its UNAFFECTIVE this season id rather have a boring offense that works than a offense that is unaffective. The confidence is at a all time low. The players are playing hard but the coaching is atrocious this year.

  212. cee808:

    Colorado State over UNLV 24 - 0 at the half ... bodes well for home game against UNLV.

  213. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    *tsai* oops, I mean *sigh*...

  214. SteveM:

    November 10th, 2012 at 2:59 pm
    We ran out the half? Really? Sigh.


  215. Shoko:

    Altitude could be a factor.

  216. markazulu:

    Schroder is tough no doubt but this is not going well for him sit him down and let someone else try to spark this team. Before Schroder gets seriously hurt the kid has taken the worse beating this season. It's like Chow gave up this season already. I'll say that Mike Edwards as always exceptional, swarming to the ball, joey iosefa is running hard.

  217. Jack Flash:

    Please bench Shroedee.

  218. MattO:

    Hig-gins, hig-gins, hig-gins...

  219. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    I never second a guess a coach, but I can agree with certain posts... ;) God bless SS for takin' a beatin' like he does.

  220. papajoe2:

    Of the 7, soon to be 8 losses, how many was on national tv?

  221. papajoe2:

    You mean it's only halftime? Oh lord help us please.

  222. MattO:

    #219 - he's def taking a beating - tough buggah

  223. papajoe2:

    What does a coach say in the locker after being blown out every game? Don't give up?

  224. Matt:

    We always just hand the ball off and run out the clock at the end of the half. It's our version of the two minute drill. This game is already out of reach. Might as well put in the backup QBs to see if they can move the team with the first team offense. Give Higgins one quarter. If he isn't getting it done, play Shutter for the last quarter. What's the worse that can happen? We're gonna get blown out anyway. Too bad because the defense has had a couple of good series during this game. I doubt Boise is going to take their foot off the pedal until the 4th quarter.

  225. papajoe2:

    Only score is a kickoff return. No O. 67 yards total. Some drives are longer than that.

  226. markazulu:

    Lets hope chow tries to shake things up a bit this quarter!

  227. azwarrior22:

    Sure lot of empty seats at Aloha Stadium...that's pretty sad. Back in my day in the early 80's, the average was 40K+.

  228. Black Bean Chow Fun:

    7-3, Teo in the 2nd quarter

  229. papajoe2:

    At least Joey is doing good, but that's not enough.

  230. Black Bean Chow Fun:

    227. Those were the days! We never got smoked like this backe then.

  231. markazulu:

    yes 3 and out comeback!!!!! lol

  232. 3-Prong:

    Schroeder: 38.5% completion % for 59 total yards for the half. Nuff said.

  233. Shoko:

    Will be interesting to find out actual attendence. Does look empty.

  234. papajoe2:

    Now if we can move the ball and get 1st downs, then the D can get some rest.

  235. markazulu:

    Offense getting only 67 yards i remember when our qb had 67 yards after 1 drive

  236. markazulu:

    All i want is to see them make this game close please

  237. papajoe2:

    Yeah! 1st down on 3rd down too.

  238. Slugger:

    Hi, DPK!

  239. papajoe2:


  240. papajoe2:

    Alright!!!! 2 1st downs in a row.

  241. markazulu:

    Once again Schroder is showing his toughness.

  242. madeinhawaii:

    so how many in the student section for this game?

  243. MattO:

    Oh Schroeder.... Sigh

  244. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Hiya Slugger! ;)

  245. Wassup:

    Shroder is the man!!!!!

  246. Shoko:

    Student section looks like the black hole.

  247. papajoe2:

    Thought SS had some zip on that pass but to the wrong team. Shucks.

  248. 3-Prong:

    announcers keep pointing out that he holds ball too long......

  249. gmahoney:

    MIH, looks like 5.

  250. Chicken Grease:

    Matt and MattO . . . are you the same person? This is confusing, eek.

  251. markazulu:

    Please try a different qb this offense needs a rhythm and adding a qb that can scramble might help.

  252. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Shutter warmin' up?!

  253. Shoko:

    So far, it appears Hall and Evens are leading in receptions.

  254. markazulu:

    Is next year a guarantee that Taylor Graham is gonna be a starter?

  255. 3-Prong:

    Can someone feed the announcers comments into NCs headset. Hehe

  256. markazulu:

    If Shutter comes in and does 3 hand offs again im gonna go mad!!! lol

  257. papajoe2:

    I hope he gets an opportunity to do more than han off and eat the clocl.

  258. MattO:

    Grease, Lol - no, we aren't, we just share the same, common opinion

  259. Matt:

    Good stop defense. Defense is playing one of their better games of the year.

  260. papajoe2:

    With Gregory out, where is Lister and where is Sterling Jackson. Is SJ even suited up?

  261. Matt:

    Chicken Grease. If MattO and Matt confuses you, maybe we can put in Shutter. Almost sounds like Schroeder.

  262. Matt:

    Nope SS back in the game.

  263. Wassup:

    #254 No way!!! Can't you see that Shroder is the man?

  264. MattO:

    Oh Schroeder... Take two....... Sigh

  265. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    He didn't even get the ball knocked...he just let go of the ball....

    Can we please put someone else in as QB?!

  266. azwarrior22:

    This is painful to watch.

  267. 3-Prong:

    Maybe we need to deflate ball so it doesnt slip out of his hand. Hehe (actually not funny anymore)

  268. SteveM:

    Good Grief!
    Shroeder dropped the ball BEFORE getting hit.... sigh...

  269. markazulu:

    C'mon special teams lets score

  270. Shoko:

    Can't blame Schroeder too much. The O-line gotta take some of the blame. Just like that Iosefa missed block that resulted in a return TD.

  271. Harvard:


  272. mo808:


  273. Matt:


  274. Jack Flash:

    Why do they keep announcing commercials while we are on frikken offense!

  275. MattO:

    The label thing - it worked, 3-prong!!'

  276. Wassup:

    No!!! Higgins in. Put Shroder back in!!!!

  277. BowNatic:

    Didnt we see this movie last week? My two year old won't even watch! LOL

  278. Matt:

    Look at 1st down. Yeah Higgins.

  279. mo808:

    Completed to 5

  280. 3-Prong:

    Da Spark is in!!!!!!

  281. Matt:

    Going for it on 4th down.

  282. azwarrior22:

    Our O-line stinks

  283. 3-Prong:

    MattO: Yah, delayed reaction. Now was dat da brown bottle or da green one dat worked?

  284. markazulu:

    Thats ok i like what im seeing from higgins

  285. Wassup:

    Hmmmm... I'm no offensive genious, but it appears that Higgins is a better QB.....

  286. 3-Prong:

    As ok at least moving. Go Warriors.

  287. nanakuli:

    Poor Norm Chow. No coach should go out like this with only true diehards behind him.

  288. azwarrior22:

    Yeah but next week it will be the same...SS, he's my QB :-(

  289. MattO:

    3-prong - was da green one :)

  290. markazulu:

    I feel bad for schroder he is one tough guy but he is getting lit up this season our o line is young and he is under pressure because of it but i think if we get a more athletic guy in there we might see better results on Offense.

  291. markazulu:

    Man to think the year Hawaii has a lot of national exposure we are getting blown out every game. The defense is playing good

  292. MattyBoy:

    There's no way chow has more than 3 wins next season! I guarantee it..can we just get rid of him already please?

  293. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Did anyone get an answer to the all important question..."How the hell does Schroeder give us the best chance to win?"

  294. MattyBoy:

    Whatever happened to Al and BigHilo?

  295. mo808:

    First good defensive stop!

  296. MattO:

    Great, now there are three Matt's on the board

  297. MattyBoy:

    Wow! We're the laughing stock of college football! Can you believe that? The laughing stock.

  298. markazulu:

    A much better effort on Defense today and suprisingly this year our Special Teams has been very Effecient.

  299. Matt:

    Okay, drinking game. In honor of Lynette's birthday. Jager bomb for every time NC says SS is my QB in the post game press conference.

  300. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    #294 -

    Y u askin'?!

  301. Frustratedfan:

    Get rid of Chow NOW!!!!

  302. papajoe2:

    Yup, hand off 3 times in a row. Not letting him show me up. I'm going to run out the clock.

  303. markazulu:

    If our defense played like they do today we might not get blown out by every one else. The offense just needs to play better.

  304. Shoko:

    Haven't seen BHF2 or Ipuman for quite some time.

  305. MattO:

    Gorgeous pass!

  306. papajoe2:

    USC, Nevada, BYU, San Diego State, Boise State and next week at Air Force. All on nationsl tv. All blow outs. Air Force tbd.

  307. Matt:

    Higgins!!! "Now, that's how you throw the football" says the announcer.

  308. 3-Prong:

    299 Matt: good one!

    289 MattO: Good, thought I had to start buying Budlight instead.

  309. KonaBoy:

    Not sure what chow sees in SS, but Higgins is light years better in live game action. However, the o-line is putting a cap on what this offense will be able to do regardless who's back there.

  310. mo808:

    Defense is looking much better today.

  311. markazulu:

    Our Defense has played exceptional this 2nd half and have played ok in the 1st half. We have no offense basically this season. -6 yards i dont even remember when we ran the run-n-shoot having - yards rushing

  312. KonaBoy:

    310 agreed, played better than I thought they would against Boise.

  313. Matt:

    It's only negative yards rushing because of all of the times SS was sacked.

  314. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    True dat, mo.

  315. 3-Prong:

    They're bringing da house. Screen play would work. No time for the longer ones.

  316. MattO:

    Kona - true, but a quicker, more mobile QB can offset some of that O-line weakness. But yeah, if you can't give your QB more than 2 sec to throw the ball, you're gonna have problems no matter what.

  317. KonaBoy:

    Matt agreed, which is why Higgins should ride out the season. He has way more pocket awareness and can make something out of nothing, which is like every other play unfortunately :(

  318. markazulu:

    I wonder what would've happened had we kept Rolo?

  319. papajoe2:

    Boise's offense was struggling before today, but so has everybody else's that we have been playing. Today though, I thought the defense did a lot better than in previous games. It seems like they are getting tired and losing focus by playing a long game just like toward the end of the 1st half..

  320. Shoko:

    I bet Chow and Rolo would buck heads.

  321. markazulu:

    Higgins has looked good. except for the fumble of course.

  322. Jack Flash:

    This is BY FAR the crappiest d1 college football team in the nation. I can't stand this anymore.

  323. Shoko:

    Front seven is definitely the highlight limiting Boise's ground game.

  324. Matt:

    Did we sign the Temple contract yet? Since they lost today, they have to win their remaining two games and the game in Hawaii to be bowl eligible. The way Syracuse spanked Louisville today, I doubt Temple has any chance against them on 23 Nov.

  325. azwarrior22:

    With our O-line so porous, we need a mobile QB to have a chance.

  326. Matt:

    Nice pass Higgins. I wanna see an offensive score.

  327. MattO:

    Now THAT is how you make a play with your feet!

  328. papajoe2:

    #320 Shoko, and would be sitting in the stands.

  329. KonaBoy:

    Higgins has to be the starter from here on out. I haven't minded chows decision to keep SS as the starter, but at this point he has to go with what works. SS is not working. Not with this line.

  330. MattO:

    This offense plays for Higgins. Interesting.

  331. MattO:

    Wow!!!!! What a catch!

  332. 3-Prong:

    OK Gangees keep pointing dem green bottle labels at da team!!!

  333. Matt:

    Come on offense. Punch it in there.

  334. Matt:

    TD!!!!! Two weeks in a row Higgins lead a TD drive.

  335. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Likin' Higgins!

  336. 3-Prong:

    Green bottles, Green Unis, Magic!

  337. KonaBoy:

    Wow what a no-catch.... lol. I'll take the ensuing TD anyway. ...and Higgins as our starter. Curious what the post game comment from chow will be...

  338. MattO:

    That kid can PLAY. Buying time with his feet and making quick, accurate throws. Love that!

  339. markazulu:

    All this talk about schroder and how that chow really likes him because thats his prototypical qb i wanna know if The Fans could build a QB from the strengths of any previous Hawaii QB's?
    Norm Chows Example:
    Accuracy: Sean Schroder
    Toughness: Sean Schroder
    Athleticism Sean Schroder
    Clutch: Sean Schroder
    Awareness: Sean Schroder

  340. papajoe2:

    He did a pretty good job but, he was playing against the 2nds and 3rds. SS is still my man.

  341. WarriorNY:

    I've been behind SS for the entire year but I have to say Higgins will be starting QB next week...

  342. Jack Flash:

    Higgins > Shroeder. And now i got 2 free tacos! Chee hoo!!!!!

  343. MattO:

    Kona, did he drop it? Missed the replay

  344. azwarrior22:

    The question is going to be asked in the post-game interview and Chow will say Schroeder is my QB :-(

  345. Matt:

    He dropped it, but they gave us credit for the catch.

  346. KonaBoy:

    Yep, bounced off the carpet...

  347. papajoe2:

    So now does this prove that Graves should be playing? Nah, just stirring things up.

  348. MattO:

    Higgins also goes through his progressions. Just saying.

  349. markazulu:

    Just was interested with how everyone talks about Chows preference i wanna know.

  350. MattO:

    Lol. Matt/ Kona, they feel sorry for us

  351. Matt:

    Come on defense. Stop em, so the offense can score again.

  352. 3-Prong:

    Higgins 75% completion. 117 yards.

  353. BowNatic:

    The world feels sorry for the UH football program.. LOL

  354. KonaBoy:

    Just want to see Higgins drive the o again, let's go D.

  355. Matt:

    Higgins has more yards passing than SS. Higgins 9-12 for 117. SS 10-19 for 100 with one INT.

  356. KonaBoy:


  357. mo808:


  358. 3-Prong:

    OK 2:00 drill.

  359. mo808:

    Picked :(

  360. KonaBoy:

    INT, Oh well... matt, the argument will be that he was playing against the 2nd team. I truly think though that he would do fine starting. Hoping Chow gives it a try.

  361. Matt:

    What was the spread?

  362. mo808:

    Higgins to Hall :)

  363. Shoko:

    Boise covered the spread. It was 28 points.

  364. papajoe2:

    Colorado romped UNLV.

  365. papajoe2:

    Should be Colorado State.

  366. mo808:

    Trickeration! Game set match.

  367. mo808:

    ND doing good! 21-3 3rd qtr 6:55 left

  368. Matt:

    Too bad if they scored a TD on that last drive, they would have been within 28 points.

  369. Shoko:

    Between Boise State, Fresno State and San Diego State sitting in a three-way tie, I would say the Aztecs are sitting nicely for at least a share of the MWC title. Boise State and Fresno State still have to play Nevada, which could give them another loss this season.

    Nevada - Fresno game is up next!

  370. greenthumb:

    Some promising moments.

  371. madeinhawaii:

    Thanks to Higgins, Chow's FBS points per game average this season won't dip too much... I think it's 19.3, now.

  372. markazulu:

    The defense played better today.

  373. markazulu:

    What do you have to lose by playing higgins?

  374. sockpupetmarkazulu:

    huh, defense played better

  375. Matt:

    I thought the defense did okay today. They were put into some tough spots by the special teams with the BSU long punt return, the muffed punt by Harding, and the long run on the fake punt by BSU.

  376. Slugger:

    It was fun sitting with UHFan808.


  377. Shoko:

    Wonder if Chow will suspend Gregory one game after being ejected.

  378. Shoko:

    Chow said he will deal with Gregory severely for the infraction. Not sure what that means, but sure sounds like a suspension.

  379. Hank:

    Mahalo E Ke Akua Sean was taken out today...that young man has taken a tremendous beating this year and looked like he was playing with a mild concussion in the 3rd. Please let him rest.

  380. papajoe2:

    Washington State receiver quit the team claiming abuse by coaching staff for degrading the players.

  381. North Face Realization Womens:

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

  382. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Turnstile count 24,000 tonight.

  383. kev-1:

    380 . . . Papajoe

    Chow should send him a greeting card and include statistics of how many drops we have had this year. He will realize he could probably start immediately and transfer. Considering WSU's coach's history, he may be able to appeal for an NCAA exemption to play next year without sitting.

  384. kev-1:

    IWWTHM . . . there were that many there? From the TV, I only counted 42 fans.

  385. Buffoman:

    Higgins looked really comfortable and confident in there.

  386. markazulu:

    Norm Chow Press Conference

  387. kev-1:

    Yes he did. I bet coach sticks with SS though. Maybe I should place an SAWARRIOR type wager on it.

  388. kev-1:

    When will they start talking about Mariota as a Heisman candidate? That kid is unbelievable.

  389. JV:

    For the sake of the UH program I hope Chow retires at the end of the season!

  390. azwarrior22:

    #382 - pretty sad, more empty seats than fans vs Boise State.

  391. Tazer:

    markazulu i can answer that question for you #373. The answer is somebody looses his pride and hope. I'm a fan and always be a fan even season ticket holder. And old people (not all)tend to not to make to many changes or style and are very stubborn. I will just hope next year few injured and more W.
    But like some people said we are going to be a great team and win game's and have real good quarterback. My thing is seeing is beliving and talk is cheap. So far it's only talk and not a thing to show for.

    Well... At least Chow is considering a QB change. Hope it's not just lip service.

  394. kev-1:

    Time to just have faith for the future instead of being pissed about the present. I am frustrated out already. I am excited about the youth on our defense. I mean, Marrel Jackson was all over the field on defense. He played one heck of a game, and he is a freshman. This season is a bust already, and has been for a while already. I am choosing to put my trust in Chow that he knows what he's doing. Sure, he should have made a QB change a long time ago. But I accept that he has been trying to instill confidence in his starter. That is his style, so be it.

  395. kev-1:

    Looks like I jinxed the Mariota for Heisman campaign. Mariota out with a shoulder injury. Not only that, they also lost Barner and their top safety.

    Eh SAW, i was looking at the pre-election posts. Wager was only for 48 hours. What,......are you really in deep depression over not being able to post or is the election results? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Yes he did. I bet coach sticks with SS though. Maybe I should place an SAWARRIOR type wager on it.

    Bwwhahaahhaaha. The heck he went off to? Was only supposed to be two (2) days, no? Think he went off to that alternate reality where The Political Beat blog (hosted by Senator Steven Tsai) exists.

    Grease a big fan of believing in Coach Chow, letting him have his chance. In the case of SAWARRIOR . . . well . . . change the bet (or the betor, bwahahahhaahah). No be habuts SAWARRIOR, get on back hea, bet OVER alreadies.

  398. Chee!:

    #382 - 24k @ turnstile..... AY SOOOS!!!

  399. kev-1:

    Check that, Mariota and Barner back in. Scoring drive too. Mariota is one tough dude.

  400. Shoko:

    Thought I heard the announcer say there were very little to no bodies in the student section. Thats a very bad sign in terms of student support. Not very confident that will improve the rest of the season.

  401. obachan:

    Shogun Chow only now questioning his season long proclamation that SS is his QB. How much more evidence does he need?

  402. madeinhawaii:

    Maybe the 8600 with comp seats didn't want to be singled out so they didn't show up.

  403. madeinhawaii:

    Actually 24K is the lowest count since the Von Appen days... I'm not sure it even went that low during Von Appen's tenure.

  404. RedZone:

    I like Schroeder and feel sad for him but I think he should be rested. I think he has taken one too many hits and it shows in how he plays. When I saw him get rocked earlier in the game I was hoping that Chow would have taken him out. I was worried for his health. You can't take too many of those kinds of shots and not have it affect you later in life.

  405. RedZone:

    We need Johnny Football.

  406. Kevin:

    Johnny Football? Im not even going to Google who or what that is. :lol: :lol: :lol:

  407. Shoko:

    I think the only reason why Higgins was put into the game was to minimize the hits he was taking. Don't feel Chow will take him out completely, but depending on how Schroeder feels, Higgins playing time might increase as the season continues.

  408. Ben A Lurker:

    seems likely there's a rift in the team and new players and time will help
    new coaches with a tight strong disciplinary approach in contrast with years of light oversight and a loose have fun atmosphere; perhaps subtle tension and push of my way the highway makes players that disagree or resist the pressure to play less enthused and QB takes more hits. i'm not saying i'm just saying.

    check out this locker room meltdown at WSU with Leach. He called the effort "boardering on cowardice..." a few days ago. Today suspended star gives up and acused the coaches of abuse.

    i still like and expect Coach Coach to succeed but I have come around to see the stubborn streak. Like the team effort though. Like the change of QB. Defense is stout most of the time.

  409. Willie:

    If there is a replay check out 1st qtr play, 3rd & 3, Lister flares out of backfield, Shroeder follows him with his eyes all the way for 3 seconds. Whole Bronco defense got the advance telegraph of where the ball was going. Come on, stop making it so easy SS, look off the safeties & corner! Give the play a chance. This has been happening all season with SS's eyes.

  410. Shoko:

    Well, Chow has definitely been an enigma this season. Seeing that this is his first time as a head coach, there is no reference that can be used in determining his thought process.

  411. Shoko:

    Anyway, tomorrows another day.


  412. manoa#1:

    dumb ass chow about time u stubborn donkey.

  413. Green tea:

    Higgins can win games; not SS. Frustrating make dumb and predictable mistakes over and over again.
    Last in the MWC... SS is a great back up QB.

  414. gobows:

    #378 at a minimum, grass rolls. which actually is not as bad (vs 1000 am) since they practice in the afternoon.

  415. PurpleMaple:

    "Johnny Football" is the nickname for Texas A&M quarterback, Johnny Manziel, the quarterback that beat Alabama today.

  416. PurpleMaple:

    Open the competition between Schroeder and Higgins? Did he watch a different game than the one I watched at Aloha Stadium today? Higgins clearly can move the offense when Sean is unable, incapable of doing. Open compeition, the man must live on a different planet.

  417. gobows:

    just because ss can't move his feet, he runs very slow, and he likes to throw the ball so that the defenders have a chance to make a play that doesn't mean he's not capable of winning games. i bet any of you if they played damien, kalani, waialua, kalaheo, and even lanakila baptist, ss would lead the team to victory. hey, he did it against lamar.

  418. gobows:

    chow is just setting the table so he can have one of those "greatest turn around" years under his belt. you know 1 win this year, 10 wins next.

  419. gobows:

    #412 he dumb or stubborn?

  420. Ben A Lurker:

    Fresno 52 Nevada 36

  421. bob:

    At least Chow is willing to consider using Higgens instead of SS. The way I look at it--is that we really have nothing to lose by giving Higgins a shot. And there is not question that Higgins is "better at extending the play" with his legs when the pass protection breaks down than SS. Chow should play Higgins and if he doesn't work out then it will show that SS was the right choice.

  422. madeinhawaii:

    Wow .. Fresno beat Nevada... Fresno is really tough this year... I guess they are over the Hill now... Got to give them a Pat on the back for that.

  423. kev-1:

    I want to see a QB change, and have been hoping for one for a long time. However, this could back fire on Chow. He has stubbornly waited until the last few weeks of the season to make this change after stating over and over again that SS was his guy and the best QB we had and the guy who gives us the best chance to win. If Higgins goes in and wins ONE game, heck, even if he doesn't but actually leads the team to scoring drives, Chow will look bad for not doing it earlier.

    If I were him (and this is not what I want in the least), I would leave in SS, just so I wouldn't be made out to look bad in case Higgins does good.

  424. Bryson:

    Even if he was playing against 2nd and 3rd team players Higgins definetly has more pocket presence then SS. I paid close attention to see differences between the two while they both have slow releases Higgins goes through his progressions which SS hasn't done on a consistent basis,Higgins also has a stronger arm and is more accurate so I really do hope that Chow really does open the competition and is not just saying that to appease the fan base.

  425. gobows:

    #423 are you saying chow doesn't look bad? I was convinced at the nevada game that he sucked. he is winless against fbs teams. if you don't believe your eyes, how about these stats. 104th passing, 109th rushing, 106th scoring, and 123rd (dead last) in points against. usually good running teams have bad passing stats. on the flip side good passing teams have weak running games. Hawaii has bad passing and bad running and their lack of scoring is wearing the defense thin, not to mention the turnovers. plainly the Hawaii football team sucks. and it's mostly coaching. they weren't close to this bad last year. i don't care how many key defensive players they lost.

  426. gobows:

    good thing chow didn't sell his house on the mainland. 3 or 4 years tops.

  427. Bryson:

    I still want to know what kind of special power the BSU lineman had when he knocked the ball out of SS's hand in the 4th quarter from 5 yrds away....

  428. Tazer:

    bob read the topic and below. Higgens might not be the starter. But might get more playing time. Chow never said where he would open competition, partice or on game day???? But like you said at the end is true. Like Rolo being bench for Chang. It realy work out well for Rolo. Rolo ask other player what he was doing wrong and ask for help. Even some other quarterbacks and other players UH had over the years, where bench and came back strong.

  429. kev-1:

    gobows . . . absolutely not. I absolutely think there should be a QB change and that Chow does look bad for his handling of the situation. What I am saying is he is giving people the chance to say "I told you so" if Higgins is successful. If he were to stick it out with SS for the rest of the year, his ego could continue to tell people that he knows better. Trust me, I'm not blind.

  430. kev-1:

    If Graham really is the guy next year, then whoever is anticipated to be the back up next year should get the rest of the snaps this season.

    A coach can't even get one season to try and put in his system before people start calling for him to be fired?

  431. madeinhawaii:

    Ikaika Woolsey may be the backup.. but he can't take the snaps as he is redshirting.

  432. cocobean:

    Was at the game. Disappointed at the number of fans that showed up.

    Out O lline is still a bunch of puppies. They were taken to school by the Boise D. They're probably one of the youngest, least experienced O lines in the country. Their day will come.

    Chow is trying. Every week he comes up with a bunch of new plays run out of differenct formations. Took every few snaps from under center today.

    Don't know what Gregory was thinking. Love Joey but we needed Gregory's quickness to compliment Joey's power. Boise stuiffed every draw play and slants off tackle.

    HIGGINS. He doesn't have a stronger arm or quicker release than SS. He might be a little more mobile but not by much. What he does do is not hold the ball as long and takes more chances down field. He's shown me MORE PLAY MAKING ABILITY.

  433. Derek:

    Anybody can see that a mobile QB with escapability and accuracy is tough to beat. The undefeated teams all have that in Mariota, Klein, and Golston. Well, maybe Golston's accuracy isn't that great, but you have to keep in mind he's a redshirt freshman. And Texas A&M's Johnny "Football" Manziel is also a redshirt freshman, as well as Mariota. All, Manziel did was beat Alabama. UH doesn't have that. Schroeder can't run to save his soul. Higgins runs a little better. Don't know if Taylor Graham has legs, but I know that Aaron Zwahlen runs very fast and can do it with his feet and throw well. I think he's the future for UH. I hope Chow understands that this is the 21st century, and college is not for drop back QBs. The defense is just too athletic nowadays. Like I said, you have to go to the spread offense. You have to score at least around 35 points or more average per game to give you a chance to win. We're not going to get top defensive talent to stop people less than 20 points per game on most days. Heck, right now UH is giving up close of 48 points to Division I opponents.

  434. madeinhawaii:

    The mobile QB adds a 12th man to the field... that makes it harder to double up on a key player. When the mobile QB doesn't telegraph his intended target, the Defense cannot take their eyes off of him and that can help the receivers to juke and get separation, too.

  435. madeinhawaii:

    Oops... 11th man.... sorry... with an immobile QB.. the Defense worries less about where the QB might end up and can concentrate on their target responsibility...

  436. cocobean:

    Air Force is beatable.

    Coach. Game plan with Higgins in mind just as you did when you were forced to use a third stringer last year. I'm sure you can come up with something tailored to his strenghts. Also, don't be too harsh with Gregory. We need a one-two punch at running back.

    Coach. Play your PLAY MAKERS.

    Coach. I still no kill fight with you.

  437. kev-1:

    by the way . . . they looked good in ALL GREEN

  438. madeinhawaii:

    I know we are ranked last in Defense.. #124.. but as a team, where are we now? 122? Or are we dead last in the rankings now?

    HEY! Congratulations to Mike Edwards!!!

    In the loss, kickoff returner Mike Edwards recorded his third touchdown of the season – a 100-yarder in the first quarter – setting a new UH single-season and career return record. The junior from Cleveland, Ohio broke the previous mark of two held by Chad Owens and Malcolm Lane.

  456. maddog50:

    Know this does not matter, but outside of a severe tongue lashing....Will Gregory needs nothing else. You can not drive a team to any further depths. The defense played an inspired game even though constantly put in bad situations. Boise even though 49 points, they knew they were in a game. Joey is going to have some great days ahead. This O line has to dedvelop some emotion and finish....Higgins has the strangest passing thrwing motion but is mobile and capable.....if we are to salvage anything.....providing the injury list is not too great....I think it is possible to win the last three but not with the current "starting" line-up. I believe in doing whatever you have to do to win, and that may deviate from your ideal approach.....great not let perfection stand in the way of improvement!!!!

  457. just saying:

    Hope chow gives Higgins a chance to start next week, sean shroeder seems to be getting worse, maybe because of all the beatings hes been taking, but I have to question chows ability to evaluate the quaterback situation, being he is highly reguarded quaterback guru. Too me, higgins is way better than shroeder , yet chow says he has a hard decision to make in reguards to who starts next week. Is it that hard to give another quaterback a chance to start, because if higgins starts, will he be given the same status as shroeder ,where he will be the starter the rest of the year no matter how he plays .I think chows philosophy of who starts shouldve been decided through actual game time play, like most of the coaches, who changes quaterbacks to get the offense going.We also will never know how graves wouldve played since he never had a chance to play.If I was being recruited by chow for quaterback, I would not want to play for chow if I know that the starting job would not be decided by competition.

    If Chow decides to start Higgins, I hope its against Air Force and not some paltry team like UNLV or South Alabama. Give Higgins the big test and see how he stacks up against a decent team.

    Sean Shigematsu was bad last year, bad this year, bad again vs Boise in another dismal effort to keep Hawai'i QBs clean. If Shigematsu can't protect any better than he has (even holding penalties are better than untouched sacks resulting in turnovers), they'll be suiting up Ikaika before the season ends. It's a miracle no one's gotten hurt.

    I guess we can keep pinning our hopes on Chow bringing in "his" players. Meaning....players that want to play for him and his system. Because it is certainly apparent that this current crew does not. No matter what adjustments or new plays he puts forth, same devastating (non) results. Teams on seemingly "down" years like Boise racks up 35 by halftime. Junk teams like Colorado State look like champs. All opposing teams highlights come at the expense of UH. This Chow era can't end soon enough.
