On the mend

August 31st, 2013
By

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."

    Ichi!

    Hmmmmmm...


  3. Ipu Man:

    "...navigate wheelchairs" ?


  4. Bugaz:

    Congrats Coach Shoji and his Wahine!!!
    Go Warriors!!!
    Aloha kākou!!!


  5. kapakahi:

    Kennedy must really be special if he was ahead of Malepeai in the DT rotation 'cuz Marcus (along with Saui & Moses) was a beast on the Dline all Thursday night stuffing all the Trojan interior rushing attempts.


  6. Bugaz:

    Great to hear about wounded Warriors making a comeback, but I hope they make things worse by rushing it.


  7. Former UH Athlete:

    Ok, Im jealous... Announcers said that Ohio state has over 70 straight home games with over 100,000 people at the horseshoe.


  8. AlaWai:

    Top 10.


  9. Former UH Athlete:

    Please don't rush Kennedy. Knee sprains are always slow to heal, no matter good the player says he feels.


  10. Bugaz:

    From the practice I watch this fall KT spent a whole lot of time in the backfield. His bill rush will draw the double team and open up lanes for ends and LBs to get to the QB


  11. Wes'side Warrior:

    Morning, Gang!

    Just looking for improvements. Excited about this coming game.

    Heal up good, Warriors! No rush and cause more problems down da road!

    Happy belated birthday to all.


  12. Stephen Tsai:

    Ipu:
    When you combine a conditioning drill with equipment usually used by the disabled, I struggle for politically correct words.


  13. Stephen Tsai:

    Ben Jay was saying how Ohio State sells season passes and day passes for RVs.
    All I could hear was "RVs."
    Are there any in Hawaii? That would be kind of cool.


  14. kapakahi:

    Hopefully UH coaches were at Aloha Stadium last night to check out the potential recruits at the Warrior vs. Crusader game.

    Warrior verbal commit Ka'au Gifford looked solid at DT last night.....but looks like can also play some TE too.


  15. kapakahi:

    Crusader WR/KR Devan Stubblefield would be a nice addition.


  16. Wes'side Warrior:

    Yes, gratz to Wahine Volleyball on last night's party! Speaking of which... showing it now on channel 16...


  17. Warrior Dave:

    Good news about our wounded Warriors. I agree that I would prefer not to rush KT back unless he is fully recouvered.


  18. Former UH Athlete:

    KT is a special athlete that who figures into UH's long term plans. This is only year 2 of the rebuilding process and UH will be a heavy underdog again vs Oregon St. There is absolutely no reason to rush Kennedy back vs a rugged Oregon St OLine that averages 6'4" 315lb.

    The risk of re injuring or worse injury isn't worth the reward at this point of the season and rebuilding process.

    I'm fine with Iosefa comin back early because UH is deep at RB and Iosefa is a big upgrade in pass protection the freshmen at this point.


  19. boolakanaka:

    ST...possibly??!Have you ever had to deal with the maintenance and upkeep of what is delicately known as the "black water tanks"....Or also aka okoleville on wheels....not fun at all!

  21. Former UH Athlete:

    Forgot to add that Samia and Malepai proved they can hold their own vs USC, that's another reason to not rush KT.


  22. βρεω808:

    Thank you Scott Morifuji!!! :) :D :lol:


  23. Bugaz:

    Not much advertisement/hype for Coach Shoji and his huge accomplishment upcoming.


  24. Kapahulukine:

    Want to see some really action that locals can be proud of: watch the Wahine V-ball beat number 1 UT. Hang your hat on that, if you looking for local spirit.

    In spite of his decades of NFL experience, Chow still doesn't have a cadre of friends and colleagues whom he can call on, willing to come out and coach for him. I know, we can't clone June Jones. I have read that a million times. So please don't start with the "hater" baloney.

    It's a fact, Jones had a network of relationships he could call on to bring in coaches, not to mention football savvy friends pointing out potential diamonds in the rough. His intelligence network was incredible, BEFORE the age of the digital explosion. And somehow Coach MacMackin was able to bring in Shaw to rally the OL. Remember that? Please don't say "well, we had talent then." Actually, we don't have really know, do we. Because we don't have coaches at critical points of leadership.

    If a coach doesn't have a rolodex of loyal friends he can call to give him insight on players, potentially valuable coaches to join up, then he is going to fail. This applies to everyday work life as well. Those who have a network of potential support and critical information will succeed against the go-it-alone leaders. Chow is a loner and an introvert by nature. Not a good personality for building a program.


  25. Stephen Tsai:

    Bugaz:
    It probably had to do with the early deadlines, the heavy high school football schedule, and our columnist writing about UH football instead of attending the volleyball match.


  26. Bugaz:

    Bring KT for the ride and let him suit up for emergency purpose. He deserves that


  27. Former UH Athlete:

    If KT does play, please keep him to passing downs only. On pass rush, he will be moving forward and will dictate the contact as he rushes the passer.

    On run plays, the blockers are moving forward and you never know when a second blocker comes in low and takes out your knees (intentionally or unintentionally).


  28. Bugaz:

    ST I was actually talking in reference to the UH site, but any mention throughout the media world would be great too.


  29. Whats up:

    What I find funny is the complaining about Taylor Graham in his very first NCAA live game. With freshman/new receivers that played like freshman/new receivers dropping passes that get picked off or just dropping passes. Scott Harding came to play no doubt, the only consistent WR Hawaii has on the roster, but it's only the first game lets see if the other WR's pick up there game and catch some passes and run the right routes. The WR's still need to improve on reading the routes because I saw a lot of miscommunication between QB and WR. Taylor Graham was sacked 7 times and hurried every passing play, I felt bad for him because the O line was once again, horrible and the running game was pretty poor too. But again it was against USC and it was game 1 of the season.

    I expect a slight improvements on Offense over the next few games but the O line and WR's are still suspect at best and Taylor Graham needs to get more game reps under his belt. I think if there is going to be a noticeable improvement on Offense, We should start to see it by game #5 against San Jose State. That was a nice block Taylor Graham threw against USC! And just like Sean Schroeder last year Graham is taking some hits but keeps coming back. But the Hawaii Special Teams and Defense play was Outstanding and will have to lead the way while the Offense goes through is growing pains. Hawaii actually covered the points big time losing only by 17, that a lot better than the usual 40+ point blow out loss. That 2nd best only the 2010 loss to USC by 13 points, so kudos goes to the 2013 Hawaii Defense and Special Teams because they keep Heisman hopeful Marquis Lee on lock down!


  30. Stephen Tsai:

    I really like and respect JJ.
    But JJ left.
    He wasn't fired or re-assigned.
    He left.
    Maybe it was for the money, maybe it was an altruistic notion that his departure would spur UH to upgrade.
    But he left, and he's not coming back.
    Also, the chain wasn't JJ to Chow. For four years, there was another head coach here.
    A fair judgment would be to compare whom a coach replaced, what he inherited and how he performed. If you look at it, Wagner and vonAppen coached in a time when the league was much different.
    That said, the offense really needs to step it up.


  31. Rodney:

    #24 what you talking about!
    Where are your facts.?
    Stop already and support
    our local brother coach Chow!
    It's a process,its comming.
    Support the team.


  32. Stephen Tsai:

    I was really impressed that there appears to be more of an accurate count of turnstile attendance in the SSC.
    In previous years, the SSC appeared to be nearly full, only it would be announced there were 3,000 empty seats. We used to joke the SSC probably only had an 8,000-seating capacity. But last night's attendance appeared to match the actual total.


  33. Bugaz:

    I'd like to see Iosefa back soon to help block. He has trimmed down and looks a lot leaner and I would think that will help to hit the holes quicker. Just gotta have holes

  35. WarriorMojo:

    Re #29

    I hate when the defense of one player is based on throwing everyone else under the bus. There were enough mistakes to go around for everyone, Graham included.


  36. UHfan808:

    Bright sunny good morning to you all, Tsaikos and Tsaikettes, Lurkers and Lurkettes!

    Slugger - Glad to read that you've landed safely! Sorry again to have missed your going away get-together yesterday :(


  37. UHfan808:

    Thank you for your technical expertise, Scott Morifuji!

    Congratulations on your recent promotion!

    So - What kine promotion is it? What you going do now?


  38. UHfan808:

    Hope the Warriors understand the adjustments they'll need to make then do quality-level practice to incorporate perfected adjustments!

    Key is to ask questions of coaches and fellow players until you all get "it" and then try out different things according to varied scenarios.

    You should know your end in mind - your a goal - for what you wanna do when faced with typical/atypical circumstances during the game.

    Visualize what it should look like - what you should look like - when doing what you're supposed to be doing.

    When you cannot physically practice, visualizations for how you will do things and or react are an excellent form of practice to gear your mind thru each challenge to your goal. Will serve to make your decisions more thoughtout and automatic and easier to make adjustments according to what's already automatic.


  39. Bugaz:

    The Wahine win was huge. 6 of 7 starters retuning for A national champion Texas team full of height. The Wahine had no Croson and starting with some new faces in Olevao and Higgins.


  40. PolyMom:

    First thanks for all the get well wishes and to the staff at the Queens Medical Center for the fantastic care I received. And to the Air Medivac for getting me to QMC.

    I want to say one thing about our game with USC. It was a HUGE moral victory for our boys. The HUGE improvement we saw was just the beginning of the change Hawaii is going through.

    One thing Norm Chow did was EXPOSE every weakness USC has. And in my book, that's a huge victory for our team. When we scored the 2 point conversation that was the nail in Lame's coffin. The safety was fantastic too!


  41. Bugaz:

    Not to mention Texas players and recruiting has been tops in the nation for a decade.


  42. UHfan808:

    34 boo

    Thanks for the link. Guess that's why a throwing QB will be more successful than a running QB?


  43. Bugaz:

    Hopefully Coach Naeole can influence some blue chip linemen to come in and push the pile.


  44. boolakanaka:

    42--A running QB in the NFL is exactly that (not for long) the game is much too quick, but moreover brutal. When you playing for mortgages and bacon, that is a whole different animal of violence they bring to the table.

    Oh, ST---what are you L or XL---I have swag from boola-boola university I want to send your way, when I'm in town next week....


  45. kev-1:

    Glad I tuned into Wahine volleyball last night. Looks like a very good team.

    Is it wise to rush back Kennedy?


  46. 808bowler:

    morning. I liked the way the defense played. but again usc didn't have a returning qb and rb. So that being said we wait and see. oregon st will be a real test. they are much better then usc in off and def. Defense has promise though. Offense I love the concept of a fast spread offense. but this offense works best with a mobile qb. Hence oregon (moriota) ohio st (miller) eagles (vick). think graham would have flourish in last year's offense. traditonal pro set. I was very surprise to see Hawaii running that offense. But Ill wait and see how Graham progressess. He has a nice long ball and a very good arm. Who knows how he will do. just exciting to watch and see. So far I like what I see from this team and staff. I believe Graham has the potential. Up to the young man now. Aloha everyone


  47. kryon:

    Sorry buggaz. Saying KT was in the backfield a lot during practice isnt saying much. Our offense stinks. Not saying KT isn't good though. Just saying look wat he goes against. An offense that has no clue who they are and what they are doing. Until chow gets off his high horse, our offense will stink. Feel for the o. We should b scheming plays to highlight our talent. Not put them in situations to consistently fail. The o looks lost. N that's all on chow. Don't know how he was mastermind before. He is so off onwhat he use to do. Hire a damn oc. Stubbornness gets us nowhere.


  48. Stephen Tsai:

    It took a year, but the defensive players are learning to create within the framework of a system. Things don't always happen the way they're drawn up, so there's freedom to improvise and make plays.
    There are a lot of new guys on offense. Once they start to feel comfortable, they can make adjustments on their own. For example, by his senior year, Greg Salas knew when to break off routes to help a scrambling quarterback. Kealoha Pilares was uncomfortable as a wideout used mostly as a decoy during his junior year. When he moved back to slot, he thrived.

    We're no longer posting TV-gate announcements here on WB.

    If you will be on Oahu for away games, would like to cheer with fellow Tsai-kos (also for support, encouragement, and camaraderie), and have never been to a Tsai-ko outing, please attend an upcoming T-gate and RSVP with Koakane, James, or me so we can pass along our TV-gate details to you.

    Those who already know me personally, please send RSVP to me directly.


  50. kev-1:

    I mean this in the nicest way possible, but Ferd kinda let his sour apples ruin his article about Kiffin and Chow. I don't care for Kiffin either, but its not like he ran up the score.


  51. boolakanaka:

    50--I'm with you. I detest USC; I think it an overrated university, with marginal academics for the price, that said, its not Kiffin's job to hold down the score, that is our obligation--period.

    ST--size? pretty please....


  52. Stephen Tsai:

    I think there were a lot of for-amusement-only people who were happy Kiffin went for it.


  53. kryon:

    Shoji to chow- its not players inexperienced or young, its coaching. U scheme things to fight experience. You scheme things to hide your youth. You have plans to bring out players strengths. U do that, u can play with and beat anyone.
    All I hear from chow is we are young. Not my o philosophy that is bad. Shoot if the camera was on chow the whole game, u would c he looks so lost down there. That's y our o is lost. Just hire an oc n let him do his thing. The oc will have 100% focus there. As being a hc does not. Stop the stubbornness! Look at tom's d. 100% focus there=awesome d. Too prideful to c this though, huh chow?


  54. Dino:

    the next game against Oregon St. is a "revenge game" of sorts, recalling the last game of the 2006 season, when junior QB Brennan short hopped a pass to Rivers on 4th down late, and losing to the Beavers 38-34. the next game against arizona st in the hawaii bowl kinda made up for it when we blew out the sun devils, and going 11-3 for the season.


  55. oldie:

    Morning Tsaikos and Tsaikettes!

    Congrats to the Rainbow Wahine.

    Last night's match shows that if you put great product on the field/court, the fans will show up even if the game is live on TV. Of course, "great product" means a winning team and a worthy opponent.

    Go Bows!


  56. UHfan808:

    40 polymom and 52 kev-1 -

    Our defense not allowing USC to run up the score is exactly why I'm so proud of their efforts!

    Excellent tenacious job! Hehe

    I loved their continuous-pressue work ethic!

    Way to go, D!


  57. Stephen Tsai:

    I think Oregon State is playing at noon, or so, on the Pac-12 channel.
    Right after that, you can watch Nevada.


  58. kev-1:

    UHfan808 #56 . . . no doubt!

    my wish list for the SA . . . include Hawaiian telcom sports listing in their sports tv listing


  60. the eyes:

    kryon used to harrass wahines setter. he was banned from cindy's blog for being a douche. he hates shoji. too funny he like wahines after they win.


  61. Stephen Tsai:

    Kev-1
    I'll relay your suggestion.


  62. kryon:

    ST- I hear u. But it shouldn't take an entire gm to know that our qb has 3-4 seconds to pass the ball so we should run quicker plays. Not 7 second patterns. It shouldn't take an entire game to know that they blitzing everyone when we go empty backfield so run a draws or screens or quick slants etc. You say more time. I say 1 year, different players, same results. Even if we had a 5 star marquise Lee recieving on our team, he wouldn't do anything in our present o philosophy. Cause we have none. Plus dont know how to make adjustments. U cannot honestly say that this the o you expected wen chow got hired? U cannot tell me this is the progress you expected from the o being run by a person considered a o genius? Really? I'm pretty sure u expected a USC type o. Not this no identity thing I watched.


  63. kev-1:

    ST . . . thank you! I didn't mean to make it your issue. I was just thinking out loud. You da man.


  64. kev-1:

    btw ST . . . the Jets released their best QB today


  65. Old School Dave:

    Last outing in Corvallis in 2008 wasn't pretty, 45-7 before a full house at Resser. Should be interesting to see how UH's defensive interior performs against OSU's O-line led by center Isaac Seumalo (Joe's son).


  66. boolakanaka:

    Anyone notice this big-time freak playing for Buffalo? Kahlil Mack; he was blowing up the RT tackle of Ohio State, and running down a couple of players who have legit sub 4.4 speed, despite weighing around 250....that man is a beast, and has "sunday player" written all-over him.


  67. kryon:

    The eyes
    wrong guy u got. Maybe u should open your eyes n see the truth. Y not put your money where your mouth is? Let's bet all your money and assets you have against mine to c if I'm the guy u are talking about? Then we can call u the hands. Cause your hands b asking for handouts when you're homeless.


  68. Old School Dave:

    Fall cleaning and came across a VHS tape that had part of the UH vs Portland State game from 2000. UH lost to Div-IAA Portland State 45-20. New starting UH QB and highly touted JUCO transfer Nick Rolovich had a terrible debut that night against the Vikings.


  69. getoffjunejonesnutslosers:

    June Jones...lol What has he done at SMU? Nothing...What did his offense do against Georgia...Nothing. What was his talent level going to be without Colt? Nada...He knew he got lucky with that cupcake schedule. He Took His Money Opportunity and Ran. Don't let Artie Wilson Fool you. Stop calling him to comment on Hawaii. Who Cares what he thinks. Chow has recruited amazingly for us. Give it time. Local kids are staying home.

    Stop talking about June. You guys sound like sad ex boyfriends. Your girlfriend June Jones Left you for your best friend. You didn't dump her. She Left. Be happy with what you got. That team played 100 percent better than last year. Show some respect to those kids.


  70. Stephen Tsai:

    What's VHS?


  71. Old School Dave:

    VHS? I once had to explain to a group of students about what a phonograph turntable was. They also got a big laugh when I showed them a pic of an 8-track cassette and player :-)


  72. Bugaz:

    Watching KT give fits during practice is legit if you evaluating him next to his fellow DTs, and they did pretty well against USC. Anyway just my observation


  73. Old School Dave:

    I remember back in Bob Wagner's first season as HC in 1987 and the UH fans demanding that he scrap this weird offense called the spread run by OC Paul Johnson. Many harped on how the spread would never work and about how stubborn Wagner was to stand by his OC.


  74. getoffjunejonesnutslosers:

    Kryon...I'll bet you paychecks...i dont even care what about. lol talking smack on a blog...email me at hawaiimortgage@gmail.com...we meet at my office. you bring your check I bring mine...then lets take picture of you walking away sad.

    change your name to Kry-N...cuz thats all you been doing all blog


  75. Kry-n:

    I went to the doctor for VHS its not too bad


  76. Kry-n:

    chow is bad, the team is bad, the logo is bad, i miss my June. USC was great. I can't afford season tickets, I make more money than you. Qb is bad. I can do better from my couch. You are wrong. I'm a tough guy. I get drunk at football games and start fights with old women. I have road rage on the freeway, but never a stop light. I talk about homeless but can't spell mortgage myself.


  77. Bigislandkurt:

    All the coaching friends in the world would not have helped our offense in picking up the USC blitz. Under JJ, we had quite possibly the greatest UH QB in Colt. When put up against an attacking Georgia Defense in the Sugar Bowl, even the all-world Colt and his offensive genius coach JJ looked rather average. Coach made the adjustments needed. USC (and UGA) showed us speed we don't always see in other WAC and now MWC opponents.

    BIK


  78. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Good Morning Gangeez!

    "My whole talk to the players was: ‘Play hard,' " Chow said. "That's all I care about. Sometimes you can't control what's going on in a ballgame. The ball is oblong. It bounces in funny ways. But you can control yourself — your attitude, your passion. I thought the players did that. I told them after the game I was proud to be their coach. We need to play that way and not lose sight of that. It's one game. We need to bring that energy and passion no matter where we play, when we play, what time, what venue."

    Nuff said.

    FAB 50 recruit Higgins was used as a double sub with Goodmen-Higgins in the back row as the setter, i.e. 6-2 offense, and Goodmen for Uiato for front-row blocking. Higgins time will come next year. IMHO, Uiato an honorable mention AA last year, will be a 2nd or 1st AA this year.

    Fab 50 recruit Nikki Taylor, 6-3 plus (she looks bigger than 6-4 Voster), started at right side, hit .500 and had 6 BA.

    Manu-Olevau was supposed to redshirt last year, but placed on the active roster and started a few games at LOH and Opposite after Croson was suspended-she looks quicker, stronger, and holding her own as a 6-rotation player. Only a sophomore, she’ll only get better.

    #53

    Shoiji perennially recruits Senior Aces Top-100, and FAB 50s; whereas, no matter who does the recruiting for UH, UH rarely sign a top 100 coming out of HS-Kennedy Tuimasealii is the only 4-star recruit on the roster; whereas, USC perennially recruits a bunch of 4-star and 5-star recruits.

    LOL…Shoiji’s Wahine (no BCS money and stuck in the middle of Pacific), perennially is a top-10 program, and perennially shoots for the final-four. If not, for the NCAA Selection Committee’s bias towards Hawaii hosting the 1st and 2nd round, Shoiji would’ve more NCAA Championship banners hanging in the Stan Sheriff’s rafters.


  80. boolakanaka:

    69__I can't speak to JJ as a person or his personal life, nor do I have any desire. But as to coaching, his record speaks for itself.

    As for getting lucky, is that is truly the reality, then I need to take him to Monaco, Vegas, Macau, and wherever else they have big-time gaming. So just so we can be very clear about this, twice, not once, but twice, within a single decade, JJ who was the coach responsible for " the most improved" record in NCAA Div I football, for two different teams--and that was all attributed to fortuitous circumstances, and the delicate alignment of the cosmos? I think not....

    As for a weak schedule, as it was once said, you still got to play the games--you win and lose with the team before you. Anything else is the folly of"what if..."

    As for his record at SMU, while he is not going to make anyone forget the gipper, he has a very legit and noteworthy record at SMU given the context of where football was at for over 20 years at the university, i.e. the dumps.

    He guided the SMU Mustangs to a 1–11 record in 2008.

    On November 28, 2009, Jones coached SMU to a win over Tulane, ending the regular season with a 7–5 record, the most SMU victories in a season since the 1980s. The 2009 season included a win over the defending and eventual repeat C-USA champion, East Carolina. The 2009 season also saw Jones utilize the ground game more than in recent seasons. Jones has led SMU to its third bowl-eligible season (6–5 in 1997, 6–6 in 2006), and to its first bowl game (Hawai'i Bowl) since the 1984 Aloha Bowl and the NCAA-imposed death penalty. SMU defeated Nevada, 45–10, to finish the season 8–5. As in 1999, Jones coached his team to the most improved record in Division I football.

    In 2010, Jones coached the Mustangs to a .500 season. The Mustangs went 7–7 overall with a conference record of 6–2, helping them clinch the C-USA Western title. The team beat the previous year's C-USA champion, East Carolina, in overtime in the final regular season game.

    Again to clarify...I am entirely behind Chow, and if you want to espouse some polemic as to the personal character flaws of JJ, please go ahead...but to say he can't coach--is to portray a fiction of magnificent proportion.


  81. cocobean:

    #24. Chow doesn't have decades of NFL experience. Have you been to his office and gone through his rolodex, if he even has one?

    The one thing that struck me about Price leaving was his pay as an OC. Was it around 120-125K? My thought was if that was the pay for a coordinator what's the lower level assitants making? How many quality assisatants with NFL experience can you attract with UH's pay scale? Friendship only goes so deep.

    Poly Mom -

    So glad to see you're feeling better! You were in our prayers.
    And thanks for the nice post!

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Congrats to Na Wahine!!

    Go Bows!
    Go Wahine!


  85. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    JJ is a great coach. Sure we were saddened by his leaving UH. And he is doing well at SMU, all things considered. But as far as UH goes, that was then, this is now. Even if JJ left for the money, so what? He's got a family to take care of and a future to secure.

    You can lose the moment by living in the past. Like the great Coach used to say "One snap and clear".

    In Chow we Chrust. In Rainbow Warriors, we believe. The best days of Coach Chow's era are still ahead.


  86. A-House:

    Great to see every one at the tailgate of Thursday!

    and, a most heartfelt thanks to Uku, Pomai, Mo808, and Apo Kula St for their generous contribution of the "coupon" imbedded in their 2013 season tickets!!!!!!!!!!

    Next chance is next tailgate or mail them to me at 1164 Bishop St #400, Hon, HI 96813. If can, can. If no can, no can.

    I will keep my comments to myself on the UH/USC game.


  87. cocobean:

    I for one will always appreciate what JJ did here. He raised the bar as far as what could be accomplished here. It was his goal to buiild the program to be a perennial top 25 team. Sadly, very sadly everyone knows the rest of the story.


  88. Boya_jr:

    George Uko and Devan Kennard were 5 star players out of high school and are veteran USC starters who had impacts on Thursday. We go gaga over 4 star recruits and lower star transfers from BCS schools. Give the O time to improve, I see lots of promise and correctable mistakes. Like Chow says the expectations will be higher each week. Stay tuned and support the team!


  89. Warrior Dave:

    Wow! Mariota and his Ducks haven't skipped a beat with a new HC. Playing Nichols St. Is a plus but I like Marcus for serious consideration for the Heisman this year.


  90. Whats up:

    J.J. had done a lot to get Hawaii on the college football map and Mack did what he could to try to keep Hawaii on the college football map. But they are both gone and now Norm Chow is Hawaii Football Head coach. It's time to move on and let by-gones be by-gones already.

    After watching the game again, I have to say the Warrior offense looked better in the second half. Keith Kirkwood is a freshman beast! Keith made me think "What was the name of that WR that left the team?" because, Wow! Keith Kirkwood and Chris Gant did get held/interfered by the USC CB's all night! I think there are other tall fast freshman WR's like Ammon Barker that should get playing time as well.


  91. kev-1:

    Why is there such a debate about JJ? Pau already. Empty out the dresser drawer into a shoe box and throw it away or mail it to him, because he aint coming back.

    I admire what he did for the program and I like his offense. But to see people argue over it so long after it is gone is pretty silly.

  97. boolakanaka:

    Just to clarify, my thoughts on JJ were neither to reinsert him into the conversation nor to defend him. Rather, that if we are to have a legitimate debate and discourse on the warriors then we should always try to speak in facts and veracity, not bloviations that cut across acerbic personal opinions on another man's integrity or family life. Towards that every end, just yesterday, I said just the same in terms of supporting the man before us, and the young men he coaches. Imua Warriors...

    #24 kapahulukine

    bully, you talking bubbles. jj couldn't get anyone to come out here and coach for peanuts, and he didn't know any young up and coming coaches that would jump at the chance. hence, he handed out jobs to unemployed old guys (except for cal lee, he had a job). you gotta be crazy to think mouse was actually coaching while he was on the payroll. jj lost his dc, and didn't bring in another coach. and please who are these players that jj recruited? he only could get players that nobody wanted (adam leonard, pisa tinoisamoa, colt brennan, davone bess) or had ties to hawaii (nate ilaoa, travis laboy, isaac sapoaga). plus local walk-ons keep beating out the recruited players. the highest drafted players walked on: ashley lelie, and ikaika alama-francis.

    mack had a similar fate. he didn't know anyone who would come out here and he said he would only hire coaches that he knew or previously worked with. remember he brought in the coach that was responsible for the betting scandal at uw. mack only had 4 or 5 coaches recruiting. the oline never improved under gordy. mack had 1 excellent coach and that's dave aranda. rolo would have been good, but mack dictated the offense.
    chow is going to have the same problem. he might as well bring in ga's and hire them as coaches. at least the payroll can stay somewhat low.

    i really like all the UH head coaches, they are really good coaches, but when they become head coach at the UH, it's like they loose their mind. i.e. wags was awesome as dc, but when paul johnson left, the team sucked.


  115. Whats up:

    For the first time in a very, very long time Hawaii played a BCS opponent and didn't get out muscled. The whole team was is great shape and played physical, the O line still needs work, they did get pushed around on running plays and lets not even talk about pass protection. But other than that this years team overall is tougher and played big boy physical football against a big boy school. Kudos to the Coaches, Beemer and the Players for working hard on the off season.


  116. jm2375 (iPad):

    Mike - layoff on the criticism of SteveM. What anyone does outside of this blog is no one's business but their own. This was such a fun blog till the trolls and naysayers started coming out of their caves and graves.


  117. WarriorNY:

    Hey guys, I just read on a NY Jets Blog that Mike Edwards has been waived... Greg Salas was also waived by Phily... Good luck to both guys I hope they make it someplace...

    http://www.jetnation.com/2013/08/31/ny-jets-release-greg-mcelroy-and-mike-edwards/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Jetnationcom+(JetNation.com)


  118. Warrior Dave:

    I feel so bad for Greg Salas. I thought he did enough to make the rooster. Maybe the Patriots will sign him as the need receivers. Good luck to all the Hawaii boys in finding a team.


  119. boolakanaka:

    137--Ditto--all I can say after his stellar preseason, the eagles must be loaded at receiver, although it does not seem so on paper. The one positive, is that there is a lot of positive film on him.


  120. G-money:

    Said it before on this blog..

    Mike Edwards was NOT going to get drafted (correct), and he was going to have a shot at earning a spot on a team, but he wasn't going to make it.

    Yes, I'll probably get heat from the mike edwards fans on here, but it was my strong opinion that he wasn't really that good yet and could've benefitted from another year.

    I only wish the so called draft prognosticators could be held liable for the poor decisions made by underclassmen that forgo their senior year yet go undrafted & don't make the final 53.

    I imagine our stout D would be even better with mike this year.

    Ohh well..


  121. kev-1:

    I don't understand the business side of football. Greg Salas has done enough to make the team and he is good enough to be on the field on Sundays.


  122. Former UH Athlete:

    Eastern Washington is leading Oregon St 13-7 early 2nd quarter. Oregon St is continuing their pattern of playing down to their competition.


  123. Former UH Athlete:

    143... I hear ya... I think Salas is good enough to be picked up by another team. This is when your agent really earns his money.

    Alex Green just got cut by the Packers. With Alex, he had his chance last year, but didn't do much with it. then Eddy Lacy fell into the Packers lap in the 2nd round and the writing was on the wall for Green.


  124. Old School Dave:

    Eastern Washington leading Oregon State 13-10 and playing them tough. EWU was leading UW in their season opener back in 2011, before the Huskies rallied for the win. Hawaii played UW the next week and came up short 40-32.

    My initial impression is that USC still has superior athletes to OSU, but the Beavers are talented.

    UH get chance? Yeah, get chance!!


  125. Old School Dave:

    Roman Sapolu, Jesse's son, is starting at guard for OSU. Mana Rosa's name has been called from time to time on defense.


  126. Old School Dave:

    EWU 20 OSU - 10. EWU - 4 plays 73 yards & a score. OSU secondary looks suspect. EWU playing inspired ball.


  127. Former UH Athlete:

    143... The NFL 53 man roster is brutal. Basically they have to go from 90 to 53 in a two week span.

    Looking at the WRs Chip Kelly kept, Salas appears to have been on the outside looking in to begin with.

    The Eagles kept 5 WRs: D. Jackson, J. Avant, D. Johnson, J. Maehl and the racist.

    Jackson is a given. Avant is one of the veteran leaders. Johnson is an explosive player perfect for Chip's offense. The racist is one of their veterans. Maehl is an Oregon Duvk that played for Chip.

  129. boolakanaka:

    128--Here here to JM2375...as I am new to the blog, but certainly not warrior football, a little less on the personal attacks on people that have nothing to with football. First of all, while we all have different opinions, and well we should, this is all about the general interest in warrior football.

    I am old school, if you going to attack someone about some personal trait, you do it face-to-face, just him and you. Not some form of passive aggressive slap over the internet, which is more suited for two 13 year girls at Stevenson Intermediate (just an example no hate for mighty stevenson intermediate which I think ST went to...) If you two can't work it out face-to-face, whatever happens-happens, but be man about it....but, doing it on the internet....that's just silly and weak minded.


  130. boolakanaka:

    131--tru dat. Any if I read the rules correctly, Salas is thought of as an accrued veteran, thus no practice squad for him. Mike Edwards might have a chance, as he plays DB and KR, PR, and might be serviceable as practice squad guy....guidelines and rule for practice squad players:

    Practice squad basics

    Each NFL team can have up to eight players on their practice squad.
    Practice squad players ... practice with the team. They do not play in games.
    Not all players are eligible to be signed to NFL practice squads (more on that below).
    Practice squad players are paid per week and can be released at any point during the season.
    Practice squad players are free to sign with other NFL teams, assuming they are signed to the 53-man active roster. A practice squad player cannot be signed to another practice squad unless he is first released.
    A practice squad player can not sign with their team's upcoming opponent, unless they do so six days before the upcoming game or 10 days if their team is currently on a bye week.
    If a practice squad player is signed to the active roster, they will receiver a minimum of three paychecks, even if they are released before spending three weeks with the team.
    In order to be signed to a practice squad after being released, a player must first clear through waivers.

    Eligibility

    Practice squads are considered to be for developmental purposes. Therefore, veterans are not eligible to be signed to the practice squad. In fact, players with more than one year of accrued NFL service are not eligible. Here is a closer look at the eligibility requirements.

    A player is eligible if he does not have an accrued season of NFL experience. Players gain an accrued season by being on the active roster for at least six games.
    If a player has one accrued season, they can still be practice squad eligible if they were on the 45-man active gameday roster for less than nine regular season games.
    A player is deemed to have served a season on the practice squad if he remains on the practice squad for at least three weeks. Players are eligible to be on the practice squad for two seasons.
    Players can be eligible for a third practice squad season if their team maintains no less than 53 players on the active/inactive list at all times.

  137. jm2375 (iPad):

    Eastern Washington is the 3rd ranked FCS team, correct?


  138. Derek:

    Halftime: Eastern Washington 29, Oregon State 17. Unfortunately, Oregon State will have no problems with Hawaii next week. The reason is because Eastern Washington's QB Adams is very mobile, shifty, quick, and accurate with his throws. He's not big, however, he is a very good runner too. That's the kind of dual threat QB gives teams problems. UH however, has a QB who is a statue by comparison. Oregon State will tee off on Graham because he is no threat improvising on the run. I am quite impressed w/ Eastern Washington as well as North Dakota State who beat Kanasas State yesterday. I am also impressed w/ Oklahoma State's QB Walsh who can run and throw with equal proficiency.
    With that said, Marcus Mariota is just tremendous. He's definitely Heisman worthy to make it to New York in December.

    Pomai, Oregon State 45, Hawaii 7. Nothing will change since the last time they played there.


  139. boolakanaka:

    146 Amen to that...and especially passive and chicken sh*t is to say something, when that person neither reads this blog or has the ability to say otherwise or defend themselves. If your man enough or woman enough for that matter, to personalize criticize someone, do it in person and with ample time for them to respond. Otherwise we have a pretty good idea on who sleeps with the sheets over their heads at night. We practiced other rules of etiquette near halawa housing....if you know what I mean.

  143. PokeBowl808:

    Dont worry about the type of QB UH doesn't have. UH has what it has. UH never went for dual threat QBs under Jones/Mack. So UH wouldn't have Johnny Football type QB regarless for those clinging to the RnS days. David Graves would not be the answer as proven last year by not even cracking the top 3 QBs.


  144. Shoko:

    148. Yep, Eastern Washington is ranked third. North Dakota State is ranked first and they beat Kansas State.

  147. Former UH Athlete:

    Update:
    Eastern Washington now trading scores with Oregon St.

    EWU 43
    OSU 39

    As mentioned before, OSU always plays down to the competition. I'm smelling the under vs Hawaii next week. I see it playing out similar to the USC game.

    Overall, Oregon St is a more experienced and deeper team than USC but they don't have the top line talent USC has. Especially since their two most athletic players are now in the NFL. The Beaves don't anything close to Marqise Lee's ability on offense. The Beaves are usually a pretty balanced offense but I think Mannion has had to throw the ball much more than expected today. He's an efficient, yet unspectacular QB... In other words, he's a better version of Sean Schroeder. Accurate arm, and smart with the ball, but only average arm.

    If UH's defense plays well again. This should be a low scoring game until UH's defense fatigues.


  148. Former UH Athlete:

    Beaver fans getting treated to an offensive show, but they got to be panicking a bit that they are in a shoot out with a 1AA team.

    At one point this was a low scoring game. I guess the defensive coordinators said F--- it.


  149. Former UH Athlete:

    Beavers just scored again and retakes the lead 46-43.

    Looking at the box score. Neither team can stop the pass at all. Both QBs are over 75% completion rate as of now. That tells me that their D lines aren't getting any pressure on the QB and have time to pick apart the D.


  150. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Thank you New York brethren. Keep it real and keep it classy. Mahalo!


  151. PurpleMaple:

    Watching games like Washington St v Auburn, etc. and you can see how quick the offenses are run.


  152. Shoko:

    Geeez! Botched the PAT. How can?


  153. Former UH Athlete:

    Eastern is driving again deep into Beaver territory. now under 2min.... They better start chewing clock so not to give OSU time to score...

    TOUCHDOWN EAGLES! They are going to win!!!!

    AND Weakness against weakness....UH's offense against OSU's defense.

  158. Bryson:

    Wow EW with the Upset...That could be a bad thing for our Warriors...OSU may come out extra motivated next week...But I'm hoping that OSU's loss inspires Our Warriors!

    A lot of Nastiness today! Must be the heat & humidity. I was pretty fussy earlier today. Acted "habut" with my wife this morning (sorry!). She understood. Fired up the a/c and drinking a cool beverage now. Everything copacetic. I hope Salas gets picked up by a good team. He was the hardest working, most consistent receiver in the Eagles' camp. NFL = tough business. I have no problem with NFL players' salary. Short career, no guaranteed contracts, short(ened) lives & battered bodies/brains.


  168. Old School Dave:

    Monkey see, monkey do. Seems like every team is going with an Oregon style up tempo, no huddle offense (now UW is copying this with Keith Price). Talk about a lack of originality. But, that's just me.

    usc had many opportunities to take a knee and let the clock wind down, they chose to keep driving and go for a score even though they led by 18 points with less than a minute left in the game.

    that is the definition of running up the score.

    i hope stanford and oregon take note and put 63 points on the board when they face usc.


  179. Former UH Athlete:

    Take the under 1st half. That'll be my pick of the week. I doubt Graham will ever throw 4 picks again. Plus, if OSU can't get pressure vs a 1AA offensive line, I would say the chances of Graham staying upright after 2.5 seconds is pretty good.

    OMG... East Illinois is beating San Diego St. 26-19.

    The Mountain West not looking great this week. Favorite Fresno looked horrible on defense, barely beating a mediocre Rutgers. UNLV continues to be terrible. UH beat themselves. Utah St looks to have taken a step back post Gary Anderson, losing to PAC 12 bottom halfer Utah. Boise hasn't recovered from Kellen Moore's graduation. Colorado St vs Colorado looks to be an ugly game.

    New Mexico is now trailing UT-San Antonio.

    Gobows, I didn't see it as running up the score. First game of the season, their offense not clicking on all cylinders, this was another opportunity to get another snap under game conditions. If they did the same thing up 56 - 5, then I would think it was running up the score. Either that, or Lane had $$ on the game.


  181. NotNasti:

    UT . . . San Antonio. And here I was thinking, "Wow, NMSU is hanging with Texas."

  186. madeinhawaii:

    Nevada hanging in there with #21 UCLA. Halftime, 13 -17 UCLA on top. Nevada's defense is porous, the offense is moving the ball and getting on track. Should be an interesting second half..

    Somewhere in the 100's . . . with all the spam.

    But, for now -- 3rd century!


  188. RainboWarrior:

    Hopefully Salas and Edwards make practice squads at least. Also, sad day for Alex Green. Hopefully he'll bounce right back with someone else.


  189. boolakanaka:

    210--Salas is not eligible for a practice squad position.


  190. Former UH Athlete:

    Oh man, Mike Edwards got cut?

    Whoever was in his ear gave him horrible advice about leaving UH early. Part of it was baby momma related, which is understandable, but I think a big part of it was his inner circle over hyping his status.

    IMO, his agent didn't do him any favors by signing Mike with the Jets. Who's top 3-4 CBs are ready set the time of his signing. Cromartie is starting on one side. Isaiah Trufant is a good backup. Dee Milliner was drafted early and might start. Kyle Wilson was another high draft pick a few years back they won't cut.

    Basically Mike had to compete against 5 or 6 guys for 1-2 CB spots.

    UCLA made some adjustments at halftime and came back roaring... Nevada is still stuck in 1st gear and hasn't been able to put up points...

  207. Former UH Athlete:

    223... Yup. Boise has no athletes on offense. They have not recovered since Kellen Moore, Titus Young, Doug Martin, & Austin Pettis finished up two seasons ago.

    So glad Clemson won... They played huge. All I can really say is that Mark Richt is just not a good big game coach. He's an unbelievable recruiter, as proven by the high number of NFL players he churns out, but they look like they are automatically handicapped about 7 points per game in the high stakes games due to coaching.

    Aaron Murray ended up with decent % and yards, but he looked rattled most of the game with the pressure Clemson was getting on him.


  208. Konoman1:

    Hey You whiners should go back to the other board. All you wannabe coaches or
    frustrated athletes should have listened to what Coach Tomey said on the morning show . That's a person who actually has credibility in the football world. His positive comments are a reflection of his support and love for the Warriors. And yes Charles T got what he deserved... Bad Karma!!!


  209. madeinhawaii:

    UCLA ultimately stuffed Nevada... but I think Fajardo and Rolo got a decent 20 for their efforts. Nevada's defense was AWOL.


  210. madeinhawaii:

    So, week 1.. Aranda 1, Rolo 0, JJ 0, Chow, 0.


  211. Bowwar:

  253. hossana:

    For all of you still clamoring about how good Rolo is...give me a break...even when he was OC with Mack, people was criticizing his play calling in the last five games and in today's game, the offense looked terrible as the passing routes were predictable and covered at best but, of course, you're going to cry that it was UCLA but if you saw the game, you would have seen how predictable and crappy Nevada looked offensively not to say that their defense was crappy at best, also...so plez stop the moaning and groaning about how good Rolo is as he is still a neophyte and still lacks the nuances of running an offense.


  254. UHfan808:

    I thot the young boy with dad shoulda won lol


  255. UHfan808:

    23 : 10

    24 : 10


  256. UHfan808:

    We win!


  257. koakane ip5:

    wahines put it away


  258. NotNasti:

    I wish Rolo nothing but the best. Unless, of course, he is playing us. Agree with you that he needs more time.


  259. UHfan808:

    All pau lau lau :D


  260. mo808:

    Way to go Wahine!


  261. NotNasti:

    Na Wahine better than I thought they would be. Jane should have done her due diligence. She is not bigger than the game. She could have been a part of something special . . . although the girls seem to be happier without her.


  262. UHfan808:

    Rolo should have been careful to not burn bridges

    Just cuz one coach didn't keep him on

    He took it pretty personally

    By forever dissing his own alama mater's field with his $1 Rolo candies

    Many of us remember the awesome job he did as QB

    But the rolo candies makes it real hard to forget

    If he returned, would we really have his heart?

    And our best interests at heart

    Then from what he says about playing us

    His actions really make me wonder how he can be tinkin' what he's been tinkin'

    Geesh, Rolo

    Wassamatta you?

    When you become head coach, you will understand

    Just cuz you felt one coach did you wrong doesn't make it right to diss the entire state, too

    As for us, we got to see what he's like and maybe it's good he didn't stay on to coach us?

    Would he really set a good example for us? To represent us?

    IDK but what kind of leader do you want representing the State of Hawaii?

    #271,

    One word, Nevada.

    He has to do what's right for him/family, no question, no doubt, 100%. But once he coaches for a rival team, he becomes the enemy in my eyes. :).


  268. iwonderwhytheyhateme:

    #263,

    No worry UHFAN808. Our defense is going to kick his offense in the face and turn that Pistol/Run 'n Shoot into the Run 'n Hide.

    Aloha and Good Morning Tsaiko Nation !

    I am UP and just so at PEACE with you GREAT folks of Hawaii Nei. Listening early in the morning to my Favorite Hawaiian music group of All time "The Best of the Cazimero Brothers" who both brothers are just so beautiful with their vocals harmonizing all of Hawaii with the beauty and scenery of your MAGNIFICENT Island !

    From last year's star-advertiser digital newspapers, the exerpt about Rolo and our H field logo; I don't care what the reason, for me, this just exuded virtually unforgivable poor behavior coming from a fellow alumnus:

    Jef­fer­son romps his way to record
    By Billy Hull bhull@starad­ver­tiser.com
    Honolulu Star-Advertiser
    September 23, 2012

    " Former Hawaii quarterback Nick Rolovich, who held the same position the last two years here before taking the job with Nevada, threw for eight touchdowns 11 years ago against BYU.

    After meeting with his team in the locker room after the game, Rolovich returned to the field and laid two rolls of Rolo candies in an X-shape on the “H” of the Hawaii logo at midfield.

    “I wanted (this game) to be about Nevada and changing this series around,” he said. “Having a good celebration like this is pretty special for Nevada football.”

    Nevada was 1-9 in its past 10 games at Aloha Stadium and hadn’t beaten Hawaii here since a 73-12 victory in 1948. "

    271 (cont'd) & now 272 -

    I'm still cannot fathom - How the heck do you even think to diss your own alama mater??

    What's worse is this was pre-meditated!

    My sentiments exactly as post #195 from our last year's WB blog page day after the 9/22/2012 UH vs. Nevada game: http://warriorbeat.staradvertiserblogs.com/2012/09/23/back-to-work-7/

    Kekoa | September 24th, 2012 at 2:06 am

    " A Grease* might consider never wanting a Rolo back here in any capacity.

    When an 'adult' trashes the *H* on his former team's football field...that's grounds for charging him with juvenile delinquency. I thought you had more class than that, Rolo.

    Seriously. I hope you are still lurking this blog. I wouldn't hire you back to scoop dog crap off of the practice field! You and Ault make a fine pair of Aces in Reno town. "

  275. slenzi:

    First, thank you for your technical expertise, Scott Morifuji!

    There is no comparing QB Schroeder to Colt Brennan, and the 2006 and 2007 Warrior football seasons were so exciting, that its hard to compare anything to what happened in those two season, but just remember the great things that grew out of that 5W-7L 2005 season. Growing a program overnight, only happens once in a very long time. Everything I saw on my new 60 inch HD, showed that the UH football program is in good hands.


  276. UHfan808:

    Remember after Coach Mack when we were faced with finding a new coach?

    Many of us agreed that player DISCIPLINE was a major concern.

    Being able to effectively control and improve discipline was on our new coach wish list!

    On the field, an indicating factor of the discpline problem was seen as numerous and varied penalties each game.

    So I think this indicating factor means that Coach Chow is doing an excellent job in improving discipline; offensive penalties stats this year compared to last year are reduced; offensive penalties stats:

    --> 9/1/2012: UH 9-83 (10) : USC 8-74 (49 = score)

    --> 8/29/2013: UH 4-48 (13) : USC 9-75 (30)
