The Rainbow Warriors had an abbreviated practice on Sunday, followed by a tour of military airplanes. After that, a beach day was planned. But a couple of the players asked to return to the barracks to sleep. The coaches then polled the players to see how many wanted to go to the beach. Only five hands were raised. And that's what happens when there are 18 practices in 17 days of camp.

The Warriors practice at 2 p.m. today and 11 a.m. tomorrow.
Then they check out of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam tomorrow afternoon, after which they will move into dormitories or off-campus housing.
There is no practice on Wednesday.
On Thursday, they settle into the schedule of 7 a.m. daily practices leading to the Aug. 29 opener against USC.

Several ailing Warriors are expected to resume practice this week, including offensive tackle Sean Shigematsu, running backs Faga Wily, Steven Lakalaka and Diocemy Saint Juste, and, perhaps, tight end Jordan Pu‘u-Robinson.
