OC Sports to televise Wahine matches; new senior walk; JHT honored

November 26th, 2012
By

OC Sports will televise the Rainbow Wahine NCAA Tournament matches this weekend.

* * * * *

The senior walk will be conducted before the start of Saturday's game against South Alabama. At least that will be the formal ceremony.

The players are free to take their final walk or party with their friends and family after the game — reviving the spontaneity of the first senior walk in 1979.

In recent years, the administration-controlled senior walk was too commercialized with delays that were so long a few hundred remained in the stands for the final introduction.

* * * * *

John Hardy-Tuliau was named the Mountain West Conference's player of the week for defense. He had two picks, one of which was run back for a TD.

* * * * *

Kennedy Tulimasealii's commitment to UH is a big deal. He is a dominant defensive lineman.

Kahuku coach Reggie Torres described Tulimasealii as a "beast" who can play sideline to sideline.

By the way, Torres said four Red Raiders have received scholarship offers from the Warriors. Torres said all four are "leaning" toward UH.

H-4 — Kahuku to Manoa — is under construction.

* * * * * *

It appears tight end Ryan Hall has suffered a wrist injury. His status is doubtful, at best, for Saturday's game.

    First again! Yay to Kennedy!


  2. laulau head:

    One more game...let's do this!!


  3. truegreen:

    Kahuku to Manoa en masse? Sounds great to me. Especially how they killed it last Friday.


  4. papajoe2:

    top 5? good morning.


  5. WarriorMojo:

    Way to go, Kennedy!!

    Please take care of your school work.


  6. westwind:

    Congrats to the Warriors for the win. Unfortunately, the TEAM (all members were not suited and on the sidelines) for the game on Saturday. How can we as fans condone this. When is the TEAM defined by the coaches as the ones allowed to be suited and on the sidelines. If this the culture of change my family and friends don't like it. Why is this not being addressed by the media? If you practice and are a part of the team shouldn't you suit up? More and more of my friends are seeing this at the games.


  7. WarriorMojo:

    Congrats to John Hardy-Tuliau.

    Trying to remember, is that our first award this year?


  8. Wes'side Warrior:

    Morning, Gang!

    I hope someone will video the Senior Walk and post it... for us folks who can't make it there!


  9. BigWave96744:

    ST, any word if Michael Carter and the BowWars are going to have their annual alumni tailgate and be on the field pre-game?


  10. Wes'side Warrior:

    H-4 should have been built ages ago!


  11. Stephen Tsai:

    It's always been the case, back to the mid-JJ years, that only active players suit up.
    It happens in other sports, too.
    I can see where it's better not to have an inactive player on the sideline. There's nothing he can do during games. But I suppose there's no harm in letting him wear a jersey, if he wants.


  12. Stephen Tsai:

    BigWave:
    I heard something about "old-time" players being on the field.
    I'm in a time warp, though. Michael Carter is my Dorian Gray.


  13. Pauoa Boy:

    John Hardy-Tuliau had a nice game and got the better of his boy Bradley Randle who couldn't get loose against the D. Always thought he could be a menace if put in the right situations on the field. Too bad he's been injured off and on this year.

    Tulimasealii is going to be huge in a Warrior uniform. Welcome to Warrior Nation bruddah Kennedy!

    Kahuku boys leaning toward UH would be cherry. Hope Ben Mamea makes his way back to UH too and teams up with Fonua to bolster that LB corps. If Wily, Kawe, and the rest of the Kahuku boys make it to Manoa, that would be icing on the cake...


  14. Stephen Tsai:

    Wes'side:
    I think the ceremony will just be a ceremony.
    I'd like to see what the seniors decide to do, on their own, for the post game.


  15. WarriorMojo:

    Wait, what? You have Michael Carter framed in your attic?


  16. (Jesse) James:

    Good morning Tsaikos!!! Hope all have a great day!!! Good news coming out of Manoa....hope it all happens.


  17. Wes'side Warrior:

    Yup. Post game... improv... can't wait! You know the emotions will be high too. Will South Alabama stick around and watch, like many visiting teams do during Senior Walk in other sports? I mean, just seeing our student-athletes buried with lei is unreal!


  18. Stephen Tsai:

    If you've been on the road with the Warriors this season, you've probably seen Lavana.
    Lavana is a travel agent for Panda.
    In title.
    But on the road, she assists with the meals, stirs the soup for chilly games, videos the post-game conference, then helps makes sure that the team gets back to Point A.
    Everybody is grateful for her work, although she doesn't get public notice.
    She's part of the team.
    You get what you put into things.

    Great news that Kennedy Tulimasealii wants to be a Warrior! Welcome to the Warriors Kennedy!

    He's so good, you know how good he is? He's so good, the main campus already has a THEATRE named after him. ;)

    a Grease, that’s what I was thinking about, taking the NCAA people to dinners, and other comps. If they are here, just let them enjoy the place and the people. Nuff kissing their butts. We get no respect from them anyway.

    This is truth. Thanks, papjoe2.

    Yep…. Bess had a career day today, too…

    Big, big UH football weekend this past weekend!!! Warriors know how to give "thanks" tha's why.

    And . . . since the Temple game won't be happening, in its premature passing and ultimate memory, I cite these lyrics from the song Streets of Philadelphia from the film, Philadelphia (where Temple University's located, if ya din't know).

    I
    Walked down the avenue until my
    Legs felt like stone, and I
    Heard the voices of friends,
    Vanished and gone

    At night
    I
    Could hear the
    Blood in my veins
    As black and whispering
    As the rain
    On the Streets of Phiiiiiiiladelphia

    [La la na na]

    WarriorMojo:
    I was going to say "attic of my mind," but that's just too Norman Bates-ish.


  21. BigWave96744:

    BTW for 2013 there are a lot of guys who transferred and had to sit out this season (Graham, Tepa, Bukoski, Sua-Passi, etc) , newbies who redshirted, grayshirt Anthony Pierce and still the posibility of Dejon Allen, Ronnie Fields, Demar Dorsey, JT Turner, Quentin Brown, Penitito Faalologo.

    Also Florida boys Tony Grimes, Marrell Jackson and Ne'Quon Phillips LOVES Hawaii and would love some of their speedy bros back East to become Warriors in the future. Cross your fingers, toes, rub your momona friends opu and Stay tuned!!!

    Just don't jump ship and think the Mayans are correct....
    You know what the 3 little birdies sang, right :)


  22. Stephen Tsai:

    Riley Wallace used to be good at wooing the NIT committee.
    He also was a pretty good promoter. He used to call AP voters across the country and just chat. Imagine sitting in a Buffalo newsroom on a Sunday night when the head coach from Hawaii cold-calls.


  23. tommui:

    GOOD MORNING HAWAII!

    Good hearing about H-4!


  24. Stephen Tsai:

    Donovan, when he was an associate AD, started a golf tournament here for ADs. Partly goodwill, partly business. He ended up planting the seeds of the UH-USC series with those tournaments.


  25. d1shima:

    Top XXV! (something USC can no longer claim)


  26. d1shima:

    If things work out right, maybe UHAD free bus service to Hawaii games can make runs on the H-4!

  29. Independent Thinker:

    Congrats to the Warriors! Congrats to chow!! Good game, men. Never doubted we had the talent in these young men, but at times wondered and doubted chow. In the end, main thing is we won.

    Tsai, fyi, seems a bunch of losers have been posting comments using my name. The last 20 posts or so were not my posts. In case that is not clear to you.


  30. Annoddah Dave:

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs:

    Pinch me...still euphoric about all the good Warrior news of late.

    The blog headline reminds me of the line in "Young Frankenstein" with Marty Feldman and Gene Wilder.


  31. haka:

    Great game Warriors! Lot's of new wrinkles and nuances. I liked them running out of the tunnel to start the game instead of the rather sedate arm in arm walk in. The evolution of the Warriors continues.

    Mahalo Kennedy for choosing the home team! Big time and hopefully the start of even bigger times ahead!

    Go Warriors!


  32. offroad tyres:

    Excellent web site. Plenty of useful information here. I am sending it to a few pals ans also sharing in delicious. And certainly, thank you for your sweat!


  33. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Aiyah, X-mas party changed again? Looks good, looks good!


  34. Annoddah Dave:

    ST: Now that I think about it...that is what you subliminally suggested with that post title. I get it...man, am I slow.


  35. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    BigWave,

    Would love to see more Florida guys come to Hawaii and play. Coach Demo was very excited about recruiting some players on his last visit. He says these Florida kids basically play organized football almost year round and have that much more time to prepare before college ball.

    Will be interesting to see what he gets on LOI day.


  36. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Looks like the players got to keep the Wounded Warrior shoes.


  37. d1shima:

    ...and that's a good ting! Ewwww....


  38. d1shima:

    Hope Ryan Hall is a quick healer


  39. Bryson:

    I wouldn't be surprised if we receive a commitment from a DB who attends Chaminade Prep in Fla...


  40. d1shima:

    btw, I am so glad that the Senior recognition will be pre-game. Most schools do it that way for good reason. It's a great moment for them and their families.

    Also hope that the Seniors will take the cue to have a last moment with the fans post-game.


  41. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    Bryson,

    If there is a need for speed, Florida is where it's at. Who is this DB you speak of?


  42. (Jesse) James:

    #33 IWWTHM....only changed once from Murphy's to Aloha Beer Company. So, what? Are you coming or are you going to bag again? :-)


  43. Denisse Fairley:

    I was searching Google when I came across your website after several pages of search results. You could get a lot more traffic if you were ranked higher in the search engines. I had a similar problem with my website until I found a company that helped me. Take a look at http://venueseo.com/7-day-free-trial/. I saw more traffic to my website during their free trial period and it really picked up after that. Imagine how much more popular your site could be!


  44. jeezy33:

    41. Think he's referring to Barry Higdon


  45. Wes'side Warrior:

    Annoddah Dave, didn't they use that line in History of the World, Part I also? Could've sworn they all followed Miriam, as she says that line and walks through a curtain.


  46. koakane:

    :ccol: good morning 808 and warrior family

    breezy monday limited sunshine but still good

    can't say enough congrats to dem warriors :smile:

  48. Will-I-Am:

    H-4, i love it! I hope it is paved smoother than Kalihi st.


  49. Annoddah Dave:

    @#45, wes'side: I believe you are correct but remember this is a Mel Brooks thing and he first used it in Young Frankenstein, circa 1974. History of the World also by Mel Brooks came later, circa 1981.


  50. Annoddah Dave:

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs:

    Looks like jersey #13 is leading in bids...say, wasn't it supposed to be game worn? Who wore #13 in the game? the Phantom?


  51. Kekoa:

    Great day to be a survivor of the weekend game that will provide support for the Wounded Warrior project. The boys represented the best of our young men in a battle for respect. I'm so proud of their all-out performance. It awakened the spirit within them, and I hope they continue their winning ways!


  52. Bigislandkurt:

    Sorry to burst the bubble....because Kennedy is a HUGE pickup -- literally and figuratively. But until we learn of he qualifying academically, all we can do is hope for the best. Remember state POY from Waianae George Kuawalu? He was supposed to be our next Pisa. Upon not qualifying, GK went to JUCO. That is where his great football story ended.

    Let's hope Kennedy's great Waianae story continues on to UH.

    BIK


  53. kifi:

    Chip Kelly: Hi Kennedy, this is coach Kelly from the University of Oregon. I just wanted to congratulate you on your commitment to getting an education at the University of Hawaii. We think very highly of coach Chow out there and the rest of his staff. They're a young and up coming program and will benefit tremendously from someone like you going there and contributing to the building of that foundation that they're establishing. But Kennedy, we'd still like you to take a visit here to Eugene and see our facilities and meet some of our guys in the program. We're not trying to steal you away from Hawaii, we would never do that. But what we want to do is make sure that if you have a change of heart and decide that you want to spend the next four years on the mainland, we want to make sure that out of all the mainland schools that you have to choose from, you would choose us. In other words we know that you will either choose to go to school at home or go away for your education. If you do decide to stay home, then we wish you have a wonderful career there at home in Hawaii. If you do decide to go away, we want to make sure that your destination is Eugene, Oregon. We think that you would look great in a Duck uniform, playing alongside Aric Armstead, and Quinn Buckner. Both guys are true freshman that had tremendous seasons for us this year. We can see you in a Duck uniform next year right next to those two, as a regular member of that defensive rotation up front. Talk it over with your family. See if you can come up this week or if next week would be better? We'd love to have you visit.

  55. jeezy33:

    The DE I hope we get most is Paulo Lepua. Coaches offered but gonna have to beat out Pac 12 schools. Think he is visiting in December sometime.


  56. kifi:

    Just joking, Koakane...


  57. mo808:

    Good Morning Monday News continues!

    RE: "H-4 — Kahuku to Manoa — is under construction."

    Boy! I hope this Thanksgiving weekend is extended to include the four offered men from Kahuku! Would love to have their great fan base on our sidelines too!


  58. haka:

    @BIK,
    No bubble to burst. I think everyone is happy to get the verbal right now and to know that the coaches are out there making contact and that the local boys are thinking of staying home. Qualifying is no doubt important, but if we go that route, then signing is even more important. Remember Jeremy Perry? BTW, I thought I read somewhere that Kennedy was doing very well in school. Anyway, Go Warriors!


  59. Abunai:

    Jeezy is Mr Lepua really gonna cone and visit us? If he does I hope he realize that he'll have a great start in starting for us at one of the de positions. I really hope we get him also. Great news on KT. I can see him being so dominate in the next level.


  60. Old School Dave:

    I also read somewhere (here or another board) that Kennedy is taking Algebra II and also an SAT prep course.

    59. Quotes from Scout.com article.

    “Two schools that I know I want to visit are Hawaii and Washington State. I like both programs a lot and they’re recruiting me hard. I have a good relationship with the coaches so I want to see those campuses. I plan to take all five if I can but I don’t plan to take any until December.

    He's the #1 defensive player on the top team in LA area.

    Utah State's Gary Andersen is also looking like an attractive candidate at CU.


  64. kifi:

    Wow! Coaching carousel starting up already. I'm sure Dino Babers will be in the mix in a few places, if not this year, maybe next.


  65. Pomai:

    #11 - ST- I can understand that but for this particular game I myself think that the whole team should have dressed, showing there support for the Wounded Warrior program.


  66. madeinhawaii:

    Doesn't the MWC limit the number of players that can be suited up for the game?


  67. Pomai:

    MIH - no the rules only limit the number of players who can travel (64) number of player on the home team is unlimited, strictly up to the coaches. IMHO it would have looked good to see all the team dressed even the one who are hurt. They had uni's for all of them.

    If it was up to me I would have the whole team all 106 of them dressed and come out in front of the tunnel where the military guys where sitting and do the Haka right in front of them, would have looked awesome.


  68. SteveM:

    Good morning everyone!

    Welcome Kennedy Tulimaseali!


  69. AlaWai:

    Congratulations to the Warriors for the win. Congratulations to Coach Chow and his staff for an excellent game plan and personnel decisions. Congratulations on Kennedy's commitment. May there been many more future Warrior brothers.
    Congratulations to the loyal fans who continue to turn out for the games. You have the "Never Give Up" spirit. Now that the team has rocked our world, let's rock theirs by turning out for the final game. Let's give the seniors what they want most, a full house.
    Go Warriors!


  70. Haleakala:

    I saw the Waianae - Leilehua game a few weeks ago. Even though Kennedy was double teamed, they still could not stop him from getting onto the backfield. He had some thing like six sacks and was always chasing the QB. It was unbelievable.


  71. Derek:

    Great names so far: (Kennedy) Tulimasealii, (Marcus) Kemp, (Drake) Miller, (Keelen) Ewaliko, (Terrance) Polk, (Aaron) Zwahlen, (Rashaan) Falemalu.

    Potential great names: (Kawahena) Johnson, (Aofaga) Wily.

    Great standard names: (Charles) Tuaau, (David) Manoa, (John) Waa.

    We've already had a bunch: (Marrell) Jackson, (Nequan) Phillips, (Benetton) Fonua, (Kendrick) Van Ackeran.

    My All-Time Favorites: (Colton "Colt") Brennan and (Falaniko "Niko") Noga.

    Chip Kelly: "Quinn Buckner". Give me a break. It's Deforest Buckner. Kennedy, don't listen to that bull. Don't even make a visit. Period.

    Speed kills. We need a 4.3 playmaker, a great pass rusher, hard hitters. Florida or Texas have plenty of them. Southern California too. Good to see Chow running the spread. Notice the 49ers run the spread too. Read option, pistol, jumbo package, everything. Harbaugh is smart. Chow is getting the message. Kaepernick is a big time playmaker. I think Chow knows that Aaron Zwahlen is a playmaker too. Great arm and great speed. Runs the 200 in 22 seconds and very shifty. Is he a Johnny Football type? I dunno, but I hope so. Good size at 6'3", 195 lbs. Can grow to 6'4", and 205, 210 easy with the weights. Holy Grail material.


  72. SAWARRIOR:

    eh, Chicken Grease, from yestadayz post.... wat wrong wit my spelling?


  73. SAWARRIOR:

    the senior walk should be only done after the game and leave it at that. no admin interference. imo


  74. HawaiiMongoose:

    I hope Gary Anderson stays put at Utah State, as well as Mike MacIntyre at San Jose State. The MWC needs to retain quality coaches to keep its football programs strong.

    53 kifi: Coach Torres calls Kennedy "a Beast". Ducks are not Beasts. Hehe.


  77. Old School Dave:

    Agree, that the senior walk should be done in a simple manner - just introduce each senior, handshake, and let them go do their walk around the stadium. In years past it has been very drawn out, although well meaning, affair with all of the UH admin and Credit Union folks involved.


  78. Old School Dave:

    To the local high school recruits: If you attend school on the mainland you'll have to depend on "care packages" from Hawaii. If you attend UH, anytime you want a Hawaiian Plate or some Lau Lau, Yama's Fish Market is just a short distance from campus :-)


  79. kifi:

    Jon Embree out at Colorado after only two years? Chizik out at Auburn, two years after a National Championship? Jeff Tedford out at Cal, after a career winning percentage of 62%? Gotta have thick skin to be a college football coach.

    We'll see. Depends on what the market looks like. If somebody doubled my pay, from one cheeseburger a day to two big macs a day, I'd have to think about it.


  83. 3-Prong:

    Usually tend to disagree more than the alternative with Reardon, but he makes good points in his article today regarding Wahine VB. yes it doesnt make sense that we don't get to host but time to move on. Washington is not the hottest team in the sub regional and if we get to a regional #4 Nebraska is better than 1-2 or 3 to get to a Final 4. NCAA could have done a better job at shafting us.......hehe. Go Wahine!

  88. PurpleMaple:

    Pomai, I share your sentiment. There's something to building and motivating a team and players.


  89. Annoddah Dave:

    @#79, kifi: Coach Chow has shown us how thick a skin one must have based on this season.

    @#77, OSD: Where is Ariel Chun when we need her????


  90. A-House:

    It was nice as a very long time fan to cheer on many plays Saturday nite - yes, it's been a very long season and closing with 2 wins makes it much more bearable for 2013 - somehow, the 9 losses don't seem to count anymore!!!!!!!!!!

    especially with the commitment of Kennedy T and ST tantilizing comment about 4 more Kahuku players who are leaning toward UH - if this all comes to pass, does it mean the UH will get 6 players from the 2012 Kahuku State Championship team? I will presume that ST is not including the 2 current verbal commmits.

    My interest is starting to "peek" up again

    Paipai Falemalu seems like a quality individual and team leader. Perhaps he has a future as a coach down the road.

    Then apply for the head coaching job when the next opening comes up and you can change things.

    Sound familiar yeah?

    Chip Kelly: Hi Kennedy, this is coach Kelly from the University of Oregon. I just wanted to congratulate you on your commitment to getting an education at the University of Hawaii. We think very highly of coach Chow out there and the rest of his staff. They’re a young and up coming program and will benefit tremendously from someone like you going there and contributing to the building of that foundation that they’re establishing. But Kennedy, we’d still like you to take a visit here to Eugene and see our facilities and meet some of our guys in the program. We’re not trying to steal you away from Hawaii, we would never do that. But what we want to do is make sure that if you have a change of heart and decide that you want to spend the next four years on the mainland, we want to make sure that out of all the mainland schools that you have to choose from, you would choose us. In other words we know that you will either choose to go to school at home or go away for your education. If you do decide to stay home, then we wish you have a wonderful career there at home in Hawaii. If you do decide to go away, we want to make sure that your destination is Eugene, Oregon. We think that you would look great in a Duck uniform, playing alongside Aric Armstead, and Quinn Buckner. Both guys are true freshman that had tremendous seasons for us this year. We can see you in a Duck uniform next year right next to those two, as a regular member of that defensive rotation up front. Talk it over with your family. See if you can come up this week or if next week would be better? We’d love to have you visit.

    Not that far of a stretch.

    If I was a head football coach, Id do the same damn thing and ALL UH head football coaches should do the same thing as well.

    "I always wanted to play in front of my family," he said. "Just the fact they can come out and visit me instead of me being out there (on the mainland). I'll be far enough away (at UH) where I can grow up on my own, but I can still drive down the road, and my family will always be there."

    "I'm going to be a Warrior," said Kennedy Tulimasealii

    Love it!


  103. madeinhawaii:

    Last time I drove through Waianae was about two years ago... maybe a little longer..... Kapolei was as far as I got this year.


  104. NotNasti:

    I've been hoping since last year that Hawaii would offer Kennedy a scholie. He's not only big, he's really strong and has a motor that won't quit.


  105. kapakahi:

    In addition to Kahuku 4 (Falemalu, Johnson, Wa'a, Wily), hopefully the Warrior coaching staff also taking a look at Kahuku defensive players (DB Jayven Mohetau, DB/WR Lasalle Thompson, LB Matai Paselio) as possible walk-on candidates.

  107. d1shima:

    It seems like this staff will not quit on any potential recruit regardless of the competition. Hawaii needs to stop the premier recruits from leaving.

    Oregon quarterback and Saint Louis School alum Marcus Mariota was named the Pac-12 Conference's Offensive Freshman of the Year as well as first-team all-conference quarterback today.

    "Dan-O, seal all the ports and airports!"

    ...didn't care much for the finger-wagging by Thompson in the State Final. :roll:

    Probably one fall camp with HC Chow can "correct" that.

    #101,

    Apparently not Coach Chow's approach.

    UH apparently no longer recruiting Correa now that's he's verbally committed to Boise State.

    Instead focusing on recruiting those yet undecided.....and continually recruiting those early commits to Warrior program.

    Going to be nice to have the trail repaired and open between Manoa and Kahuku.

    Was an EIS (Excitement Increasing Substantially) filed for the improvements from an unmaked trail to maybe a four lane highway sans stop lights, speed bumps, and detours?

    #118...wafan....good one....LOL


  119. kapakahi:

    #96,

    The one that's the closest in distance looks to be most difficult recruiting pipeline to build.

    While probably a couple Class of 2013 prospects in West Manoa, hopefully the coaches are able to build the foundation for that pipeline by 2014 (Kaumatule, Noa, Uluave).


  120. SAWARRIOR:

    98. ....OSDave, ok, thank you, i'll check those credit unions out.


  121. SAWARRIOR:

    the senior walk before the game is nuts. why get the seniors all nostalgic before the "battle"? no make sense this. chow finally has the players run out onto the field fired-up, and then someone pulls this kaka—counter productive. IMHO


  122. (Jesse) James:

    #122....I think it can work both ways...Players get nostalgic before the game but can get fired up to go out with a bang as well...especially the younger guys watching who want to give the seniors a win.

    Most other schools do the senior celebration festivities prior to the start of the last home game of the season...ala USC, ND, Alabama, LSU, and so on.


  123. BigWave96744:

    I think most if not all colleges does their senior recognition before the last home game and it doesn't seem to affect the players. To say that Hawaii players gets more emotional only degrades the character of the individual. JMHO


  124. Annoddah Dave:

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs:

    Good that the senior recognition is before the start of the game. This way those fans that leave at the end of the 3d Qtr whether we winning or losing will be around. These fans are so concerned to leave early to avoid traffic...I don't get it! why not just do the PPV thing instead?


  125. Bigislandkurt:

    Those glory days for Boise is all but over with the emergence of the college football playoff system. And with the potential for a Chip Kelly to move on to the NFL after this year, I bet coach Petersen is a prime candidate for the UO job...should it become available. Boise will join the rest of the mid majors as simply being....well, a mid major.

    BIK


  126. Bigislandkurt:

    John Embree, U of Colorado Coach fired 2 years into his 5 year deal. Think Coach Chow would need to worry if we go 2-11 or 3-10 next year? Probably not. For one, don't think UH would want to buy him out. Second, Embry did not have the backing of the Punahou Mafia. ;)

    With that said though, Embry was a part of the legendary Buff teams of the late 80's, early 90's. Under Bill McCartney, they, along with Notre Dame staged some epic battles atop the college football world. Embry is a "CU guy" with CU credentials. His staff was filled with legendary CU guys like Eric Bienemy and Khanavis McGhee. But in the end, it came down to winning, of which CU did not. I'm sure the BUff powers that be found that it was much easier to buy Embry out than to have a few more years of bleeding red. Apparently, the boosters were not happy....and if the boosters are not happy, that does not spell good things for coach. Chow had better hope that we have some good, patient boosters.

    BIK


  127. Shoko:

    I think more than likely, Fresno State will get the invite to the Hawaii Bowl. I'll be there for the Hawaii Bowl rooting for our conference mates for a win. SMU will probably come in as underdogs, but if the Mustangs can play like they did against Tulsa, it might be a great game.

  133. Shoko:

    Also, just heard that UNLV lost to unranked Oregon this past weekend. They almost lost to DII Dixie State earlier. Warriors have a very good chance of an upset.


  134. kapakahi:

    #127. BIK,

    Just seems as though the AD position will remain open since Apple(himself only in his 1st year as Chancellor) will be unlikely to make a major hire....like the AD position....until the UH Board of Regents makes a firm decision on Greenwood.

    SO....JMHO that the pressure to win probably won't be on Coach Chow 'til Year 3....the 2014 season....since just can't see a brand new first-year AD and a 2nd-year Chancellor making such a major move that soon.


  135. BigWave96744:

    SAWarriors, Many said that after Mack tried the Senior Send off pregame in 2009.
    But I want to ask you, how do you know the players still won't run onto the field this week?


  136. kapakahi:

    #99,

    As a good team leader and captain, Paipai sure had his teammate's back.....both during and after last Saturday's game!


  137. Shoko:

    I'm thinking year four before anyone seriously considers a change.


  138. kapakahi:

    #138,

    Either way WIN or LOSE....the UH Administration will need to make a firm decision on the HC following Year 4....otherwise Year 5 (the last year of Coach Chow's current contract) would be a "lame duck" year....which would definitely hurt recruiting efforts.


  139. SAWARRIOR:

    136. bigwave, thank you for your response, but you've lost me.

    " how do you know the players still won't run onto the field this week?"

    where did i say they won't? are you reading too much into my post?


  140. Shoko:

    I think I read that there was a buyout clause after year four in Chow's contract. That leads me to believe that they are going to give him at least that much. But then again, if attendence continues to bleed where the lost revenue equals the buyout amount prior to year four, they could possibly consider termination.


  141. al:

    kifi and diogenes both have mutual respect for one another.


  142. Shoko:

    When Coach Pete was asked about the coach rumors at other schools:
    "Asked if it was a distraction, he said, "It is not even kind of. It’s just rumors. That’s all I want really to say about this and I say it every year. It’s just rumors. I don’t even think half the time it’s reporters. Everybody’s a reporter these days. Everybody’s got an opinion on a blog, so they throw it out and oh, it’s going to happen."

    I use to think that Coach Pete was waiting for the Oregon job, but he and his family has such a strong relationship with Boise community, that jumping at another job offer seems unlikely. Perhaps, Petersen's goal is to build a legacy at Boise. Sort of like Paterno at Penn and Ault at Nevada. Never know, there might be a practice field or training facility named after him when he retires.

    Support the coach you have.

    Said many times Chow was last on my list of coaches vying to replace Mack. Think I was the first to comment ABC in regards to the candidates. I don't like some of the changes he's made nor do I agree with all his personell decisions he's made.

    Having said that, I'll say I have a ton of respect for Chow as a person. He's principled and lives what he preaches. I admire his resolve(some may call it stuborness) to stay the course he's choosen as the best way to build the program. This even in the face of withering fan criticism. The win and the verbal from "da bull" of Waianae has somewhat mollified the criticism.

    Now to my point. We're in a pretty good position coaching wise when you take a look at successful mid majors and rising low level BCS schools. At least we don't have to look over our shoulder to see who's trying to poach our coach. Fans in Logan, Ruston, San Jose and to a lesser degree Boise must be losing sleep whether their coach will stay or leave for greener pastures.

    Chow has stated that this is first and most likely last HC job. Said he's come home. A place he's always wanted to be. Can't say if he'll accomplish his gaols for the program - chase champioships etc. but as a fan he has my support. Does he have yours?

  168. Former UH Athlete:

    Beautiful news on the recruiting front by Chow... I think Kennedy's commitment will mark a turning point in local recruiting for UH. Crazy, but Chow has already made a bigger local recruiting splash in 11 months than Mack did in four years.

    Newcomers Tulimasealii, Tua'au, and Moala, and returnees Yap, Samia, Friel, Pu'u-Robinson, Matagiese, Woodard, Andrade will be a much improved defensive line over 2012, if most can stay healthy.

    2012 Projected D Lineup:
    DL: Tua'au, Samia, Matagiese, Yap
    LB: Garcia-Williams, Daily-Lyles, Laurel
    DB: Edwards, Jackson, Hardy-Tuliau, Grimes

    Tulimasealii will surely to get into the starting lineup at some point, probably not week 1. The LB competition will be fun to watch in the offseason. Chow has some very nice looking freshmen that will be competing for starting jobs next year. Garcia-Williams, Lance Williams, Benny Fonua all have shown they have talent and some speed. May be tough to unseat Laurel or Daily-Lyles or even Daley though.

    The secondary is pretty much set for 2013 unless Edwards leaves early, but Maggitt would probably fill in.

    I know Kaumeyer runs a 4-3 base, but looking at the potential 2013 roster, I think the personnel fits a 3-4 scheme better. UH is very deep at LB and UH has a couple tweener OLB/DE (Yap, Woodard, & Pu'u-Robinson) that could play standing up as the OLB/Rush End... like what Falemalu did vs Air Force. Tua'au and Tulimasealii are big DEs that could play down on the 3-4. That would leave only one true "DT", but that's where UH has the least depth, so by removing a DT, it helps the depth issue. Samia, Matagiese, Andrade, Friel can rotate at DT or a big DE on a 3-4.

    Given that Kaumeyer went 3-3-5 vs Air Force and had success, I wouldn't be surprised to see more 3-4 or 3-3-5 sets during 2013 in addition to his base 4-3.

    I can almost guarantee UH will be much better next year.

    Didn't Mack try it one year and the team came out so flat. I emailed him on it and he agreed it would never be held before the game again.

    158 Grease: Kelaula choked the producer after being called a name in an arguement at KHNL. Was rehired by KITV and reported to Shawn Ching who at the time was their Sports Director.

    Notre Dame brought out their Seniors pregame. I don't think Wake Forest would say the Irish played unemotionally.


  172. Slugger:

    GO WARRIORS!!!

    Night!

    #172,

    I heard a slightly different story from a guy that tells us when the trade winds will be back. But basically yeah...

    Oh the juicy stories that I have heard of newscasters lol...They human beings after all.


  174. 3-Prong:

    IWWTHM 172: Das all it takes, call a local a name and its on! Too young at the time to know the ramifications. Lucky to find work after that. Look at Dash, still no regular newscasting jobs. RK better keep his nose clean.


  175. al:

    those little birdies are chirping.

    sometimes a poor season will attract many.
    sometimes an opportunity to participate outweighs the intangibles.

    we are still in the hunt for many of the top local recruits.
    and everyone knows how much talent this recruit class has.

    ...nuff said.


  176. al:

    well it doesn't snow in hawaii...but.
    wait, it does snow on the big island and once i've seen it on haleakala.

    buy, yah, it don't snow in manoa, but, the snowball effect could happen this year. we already got the snowball perched, what with kennedy, wa'a, falemalu, ewaliko, committed that snowball is ready to come rolling down from manoa and pickup a few more of the top local recruits.


  177. Look At This:

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any suggestions?

    Good Tuesday Morning Folks!


  179. Former UH Athlete:

    Great Morning All!

    Bittersweet Week for the Seniors.

    IS IT SATURDAY YET?

    ...may be coming a little too quickly for some this time. :-(


  185. Former UH Athlete:

    #164... Every Pac-12 school now has zero excuse for not committing to their football programs. The new tv deal guarantees over $20+ million per year, before bowl revenue, for 12 or 14 years (can't remember the exact details) That's why WSU spent $60+million on improving Martin Stadium & facilities, (AND paying Leach big money to become coach) when their program was at it's weakest in decades.

    From what I hear within WSU alumni groups, they are excited for next year, even after a 3 win season. Most aren't bothered by the negative press the media is trying to put on Leach. When 19 players are kicked off or quit (most prior to the season starting), and the senior leadership has been non-existent, the alumni knew there were serious attitude problems the previous coach didn't control. Leach played primarily underclassmen the last few games this year to get them game experience and build toward 2013 (hmm... sound familar. Luckily for Chow, he hasn't had to deal with much locker room problems like at WSU).

    Regarding Colorado, they are a joke. Their move to the Pac 12 was a cash grab (they knew the Pac 10/12 was going into negotiations with the tv networks prior to their move) and unless there is change at the president/BOR level, their athletics will be mediocre at best.


  186. Shoko:

    Pretty emotional press conference for John Embree. Felt bad for the guy.

  187. Independent Thinker:

    tsai, what did skippa say to the young men of uh prior to the game? Must have said something that motivated our guys.

    his "bite down" speech always worked for us.
