    Did he meet Elvis (at Graceland)? Always good to have another DE on the team. Welcome aboard!

    Dave – thanks for sharing, I wonder if coach Chris is just shaking things up to see where guys can fit, or if Freds got real tackle potential…

    What is Fanupo’s remaining eligibility? Got a redshirt year available?

  9. ai-eee-soos August 3, 2017 1:33 pm

    Maybe Coach Chris is mixing and matching to see how different combos are working.

    Or, maybe finding the BEST 5 to start.

    The Warriors could have a major find in RB Keliiliki

    You look at all 6 feet, 2 inches and 225 pounds of running back Hekili Keliiliki and wonder how he could have, in anybody’s words, “fallen through the cracks.”

    hekili keliiliki must be a smart guy as he was offered by many ivy league schools including stanford. not sure why he didn’t go to stanford but it could be the offer was made prior to him going on a mission where sometimes athletes get forgotten.

    I saw Keliiliki’s video and it was impressive. The cream will rise to the top when the season begins. This is when the game players really show up. Welcome to our new DE addition.

    The program is finally moving in the right direction.

    The Kyle Von Ruden Report

    Another quality start for Von Ruden; his fifth, for Great Falls, the Chicago White Sox’s rookie league team. His fifth in a row.

    The ex-Bow went six innings and gave up one earned run on six hits. He struck out five and walked none.

    His ERA now stands at 3.88.

    On another note, where are you Matt Cooper.? He’s on something called the temporary disactive list.

    Read the story about the latest UH Aussie kicker. Haven’t read many stories or comments on the existing scholarship kicker, Tripfonovich (?). With the addition of so many new kickers, will Trip… have a role for this season or do the coaches lack confidence? Is the talent level that wide? How many kickers are on scholarship? Just wondering…

    UCLA has one more vote than Hawaii in the Amway poll.

    The Amway poll.


    That cracks me up.

    I want this part of my life removed from my memory.

    Going to Portland for an Amway convention at the old arena that hosted the Trailblazers.

    Approaching the parking lot, I remember that “Kiss Them For Me” by Siouxsie and the Banshees was playing on the van radio, and I’m thinking: How did I end up here? I’m a liberal.

    The nineties: Going to people’s homes, listening to “The Plan”, the dream bubbles, and being served fruit punch in styroform cups that tasted like cough syrup.


    Sounds like a defensive scheme that would get you a penalty for having too much players on the field.
