Many coaches refer to road trips as "business" trips.
The UH coaches are trying to expand the itinerary beyond meeting rooms and practice fields. That is why the Rainbow Warriors have set aside time to tour Washington D.C. during the road trip to play Navy in November. And that is why the Warriors went on private tours of the Arizona Memorial and Mighty Mo yesterday.
Before the excursion, the players were quizzed on the significance of the Mighty Mo. Quarterback Sean Schroeder was the first to answer. Now they all know. And each has a better appreciation for the real warriors who also are staying at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
