Newcomers report today

August 2nd, 2014

The newcomers report to training camp today.

It is not as dramatic a procedure because most have completed medical examinations and were briefed on rules and code of conduct. The freshmen have been attending classes during the bridge session that began in July. Strength/conditioning coordinator Gary Beemer had the newcomers in separate offseason workout program.

As always, the freshmen will be allowed to compete for playing time. Red-shirt decisions won't be discussed until the end of training camp.

Paul George's gruesome injury reminds me of a similar one suffered by former UH wideout  Rodney Bradley, who was on track to quite a career.

Blog will change sites

August 1st, 2014

The Warrior Beat soon will be changing addresses.

The blog will be part of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser's new site devoted solely to UH sports. I think the site will be called Warrior World, or something like that. (Hey, I don't get all the memos.)

I'll post the new address as soon as I learn it. But in case the current site doesn't link to the new site, just know we'll still be in business.

And, yes, I do mean "we." Posters, lurkers, critics, loud critics, know-it-alls and wise guys, we're all in this together. So get packing. I think moving day is Monday. (Please let Gigi know.)

I forgot to mention yesterday that Laney College cornerback Jamal Mayo received conditional acceptance into UH. It won't be finalized until the paper work is reviewed and approved. But if things go according to plan, Mayo will be joining UH for training camp.

Pre-camp notes

July 31st, 2014

With camp opening this weekend, it's time to empty the notebook:

> The offseason conditioning program ended last night — this morning? — with midnight weightlifting.  In a twist, the players were in costume.

> Taz Stevenson, a Mililani High graduate, completed his transfer from Washington with notification of acceptance into the Pacific Islands Studies' graduate program. Stevenson earned a bachelor's degree from Washington, but needed to be accepted into graduate school to be eligible to play this season for UH. Stevenson will be used at safety.

> Defensive tackle Lawrence Lagafuaina, who also earned a BA from Washington, is awaiting acceptance into a UH graduate program to complete his transfer to UH. Lagafuaina said he has submitted the necessary paper work.

> Former USC quarterback Max Wittek is awaiting his UH acceptance. He is joining the Warriors as a non-scholarship player.

> Former Nebraska linebacker Jared Afalava took an unofficial visit to UH  this past week.

> Keelan Ewaliko will be a receiver when UH opens camps.

> UH ordered 24 lockers for the coaches. Only 12 full-sized lockers arrived. Because of a mix-up, the other 12 are somewhere "in transit," as they say in the biz.
