The Warrior Beat

On the mend

August 31st, 2013

Thanks to modern medicine and really, really hard work, we've been told there is a good chance running back Joey Iosefa and defensive tackle Kennedy Tulimasealii will be available for this coming week's road game against Oregon State.

Iosefa has not participated in contact drills since suffering a fracture to his left foot in late July. Tulimasealii is recovering from a torn MCL in his right knee.

Every practice, both are in the "Pit" — the area where injured players, among conditioning drills, pull weighted sleds, twirl heavy ropes, and navigate wheelchairs  on a grass surface while wearing a weighted vest. Both attacked their workouts vigorously.

It appears, though, that tight end Jordan Pu‘u-Robinson will need at least another week of rehabilitation.

The Rainbow Warriors have meetings and a brief practice today.

Because of the odd scheduling, the Rainbow Warriors had a "Sunday" yesterday and another "Sunday" planned for tomorrow. A "Sunday" is considered an NCAA-mandated no-practice day. They practice Monday through Thursday on the Manoa campus, then depart Thursday afternoon for Oregon.

I'm not sure how this impacts the blog, but one of the guys who has been with us from the beginning — tech genius Scott Morifuji — has been promoted. The new job means he won't be working with on-line content, which, I understand, is us. We wish him the best in his ascension — literally, because he is moving from the second to the fifth floor — thank him for all he's done and, of course, will keep him on speed dial in our war against spammers.

It's interesting that when they were the Warriors, everybody would chant, "Let's Go 'Bows." Now during the Rainbow Warrior Walk, all you can hear are people yelling, "Go Warriors."
