The Warrior Beat

By the numbers

February 25th, 2014

I'm not certain if test scores are going up or down, but it appears that football players are doing well in math and problem solving.

There are at least three FBS quarterbacks who list Hawaii as an option to transfer. Their interests are based on Norm Chow's record of developing quarterbacks and the starting UH quarterback's position up for grabs.

UH's move to a 3-4 base defense means a starting linebacker position will be added. UH has received several inquiries from players interested in transferring.

It's about supply, demand and opportunity.

Each spring, there is intense competition … for jersey numbers.

Soon after defensive end George Daily-Lyles graduated, offensive lineman Kody Afusia put in a request for No. 55. It recently was granted.

Quarterback Ikaika Woolsey is going from 15 to 11, a number he previously wore before it was seized by recent graduate Tavita Woodard.

There have been numerous numerical requests. The most pursued are single-digit numbers, which have increased in valued now that UH is not issuing duplicate numbers to players on the active roster.

It's about supply, demand and opportunity.

Today would have been Florida Ted's 67th birthday.
