Monday musings

It's Monday, time to empty to notebook.

The Warriors' first practice is a week away, on Monday, Aug. 4.

The Warriors should have a better understanding of the potential transfers. The NCAA limits training-camp rosters to 105, but they may expand on the first day of  UH's fall semester (Aug. 25).  The Warriors will not be adding too many after training camp. There are only 110 lockers. Plus, the new all-you-can-eat meal plans make it costlier to add walk-ons.

A booster seeking anonymity is hosting a fund-raiser dinner this Thursday. The 80 seats are sold. The donor will match the amount raised. Proceeds go to Na Koa, the football team's booster club.

Revenue from football ticket sales and accompanying premium fees goes to Koa Anuenue, the umbrella fund-raising group, to pay for scholarships. Na Koa, which does not receive a cut of the ticket revenue, has to generate revenue on its own to pay for summer school and supplement training-table meals, among other expenses.

There were 750 Na Koa members the past academic year.

Those interested in joining Na Koa or attending the Aug. 21 Pigskin Pigout should log on to: nakoa.org

Former UH safety Charles Clay said he's enjoying the Green Bay Packers' training camp.

Or, as Clay texted: "Mhhmmm definitely."
