Warrior volleyball signs outside hitter

From Derek Inouchi:

University of Hawai‘i men’s volleyball head coach Charlie Wade announced the signing of Scott Hartley of La Costa Canyon High School to a National Letter of Intent. Hartley is the third player to sign with the Warriors for the 2011 season.

A 6-foot-5 left-side hitter, Hartley was named to Volleyball magazine’s “Underclassmen to Watch” in June 2009. As a junior at La Costa Canyon, he averaged 2.92 kills per set and ranked fourth in the league with a 0.53 service ace average and was an all-CIF first-team pick. He led the Mavericks to their second consecutive CIF San Diego Section Division I championship after sharing the Avocado League title with Torrey Pines.

For the past several years, Hartley has also been a member of U.S.A. Volleyball’s High Performance teams. He is currently a member of Seaside Volleyball Club in San Diego, Calif., and last season played for Orange Coast Volleyball Club.

“Scott has really played at a high level of volleyball,” Wade said. “He fits the profile of the type of player we want to bring in, a good student and skilled volleyball player. He has the drive and determination to want to be better and that’s the quality we look for in all of our players.”

During the early signing period in November, middle blocker Shane Popelka of Chesapeake, Va., and outside hitter/middle blocker Shane Welch of Coral Springs, Fla., signed their Letters of Intent.

Wishing a speedy recovery to Heather McMackin, the UH head coach’s boss. She suffered a fractured arm when she was struck by a car Sunday.

Greg McMackin was not at practice today.

The NCAA should be applauded for doing the right thing in granting a medical exemption that will allow UH offensive tackle Laupepa Letuli to play as a sixth-year senior in 2010.

Sure, it helped that Letuli’s mother and UH trainer Eric Okazaki had ample proof — contemporaneous documentation, nitpickers call it — that Letuli suffered season ending injuries in 2005 (right shoulder) and 2009 (left knee). Heck, it would be tough to come up with documentation showing that the hard-luck Letuli was ever healthy during his UH career.

But documents or not, to know how much Letuli wanted to play and to know how talented he is, there is no way he would have sat out any games if he were not legitimately injured.

What’s more, in this day and age when everybody harbors pro aspirations — look no further than the participation numbers for pro-day combines — the NCAA should celebrate those whose dreams are to continue playing college sports. (After agents and other reporters were kicked out, I was allowed to remain in the personnel-discussion period at UH’s Pro Day in Carson, Calif. Trust me, NFL teams were interested in pursuing Letuli as a free agent this year. He had options.)

The one-and-done players have impacted college basketball. I mean, will there ever be another four-time NCAA All-America player? Baseball players can leave after their junior year, if they even attend college at all. Football players are NFL-eligible three years after their high school graduation. So if a football players who has missed significant time during his career wants to play a sixth year, hey, what’s the harm?

It took a while, but this time the NCAA did the right thing.

    good morning Tsaikos,

    Practice at 7 am today 🙂 ST should be rolling in about 8:45 am i think, sorry, i’ll miss you, meetings out the kazoo today…..

    good luck to Letuli, make the most of it!


  7. haka April 21, 2010 6:46 am

    Great news on Letuli!
    Go Warriors!


  8. haka April 21, 2010 6:51 am

    This is good for Letuli, but is Lacount now out of the mix or does he find another place on the line?

    In hoping Letuli remains injury free next year, it would be a waste for Lacount to be on the sideline next season, in what would amount to be no real playing time during his tenure with the Warriors.


  9. tommui April 21, 2010 6:52 am

    Will miracles never cease? NCAA doing the right thing for a change.

    Question: didn’t Brashton require an operation and hospitalization for his injuries? Hospital records are kept in an orderly fashion – i.e. at the time or within hours of the operation. NCAA doesn’t recognize that?


  10. Bulla April 21, 2010 6:54 am

    haka,

    good point, Lacount is dinged with an MCL injury on his left knee, but will be rehabbing it all spring/summer. with both Letuli and Lacount, there’s gotta be an alignment that would utilize them both….you would think.

    we’re not the coaches, just the rabid fans…….what do we know. actually, a good source of knowledge would be our very own, in house, elder statesman, former O line stand out himself…………PRIDE 🙂 maybe he can whittle a few moments from his busy schedule to shed some light on the subject?


  11. haka April 21, 2010 7:03 am

    Bulla,
    I agree. We gotta find a way get him in there.
    Maybe he just is not the disciplined technician he needs to be.
    Hey but does size REALLY matter? 🙂

    Pride…..come out and plaaaaay!


  12. haka April 21, 2010 7:06 am

    Didn’t Letuli play guard before? No knock on Lefiti, but maybe Letuli can learn to play center and make the bumbucha line!


  13. A-House April 21, 2010 7:22 am

    Good, no, great news on Letuli! Gives Coach Tormey more options for the Oline.


  14. bstunna2002 April 21, 2010 7:31 am

    Uh…doesn’t Coach Shaw coach the Oline…


  15. Okole Maluna April 21, 2010 7:40 am

    Great news for all Warrior fans. I didn’t have too much hope after Brashton Satele deal. But we can alway use O line help with Laupepa’s ablility. We’re also hope Lacount comes arount and help us this year instead of being on Injured reserve list.


  16. Willie April 21, 2010 7:41 am

    #9 tommui, I had brought up the same thing earlier. Also there is no way the family footed the whole bill, medical insurance reimbursements are very specific with regard to treatment details and dates. Hopefully someone can explain this. When you go to the doctor your visits are charted, when you go to the hospital your visits are charted, if you have an operation it is documented; tie in to all of this is medical insurance reimbursements.


  17. mctruck April 21, 2010 7:47 am

    I hate this format…..makes it less inviting to the eyes!!


  18. Pauoa Boy April 21, 2010 7:48 am

    Yup Coach Shaw is OLine Coach…

    Nice to have Letuli back, that’s a very big boost to the OLine for sure. Who’s playing out at LT right now…Hansen??? Wonder why they wouldn’t try and use LaCount on the left side to protect the QB’s blind side. With his height and length I would shift him over. IMO

    From previous blog #237…

    NYUH, a big thing that has been hurting the OLine the past couple years is mainly consistency. Meaning having a consistent Coach, consistency in players not being injured at any given time, etc…catch my drift. To me Coach Cav was one of the best OLine coaches we’ve had. Always made the boys play bigger than they were. Still with the talent of the Vince Manuwai’s, Wayne Hunters, Samson Satele’s, Herc Satele’s, etc… our OLines were very good but not great. We could definitely compete and kill in the WAC but when it was time to play the big boys, our Olines got manhandled. Wisconsin proved that last year. USC whenever we play them. Georgia in the Sugar Bowl… Regardless I think Coach Shaw is going in the right direction by getting more beef on the line. Recruiting big athletic guys like Floyd, Lefotu, Shigematsu, Afusia, etc… He just gotta coach em up and ensure they play beyond their potential… As long as those guys can stay together and got each others backs, they’ll be alright. All are young and have the next 3-4 yrs. together so I’m sure by the time they are Junior/Senior our line will be massive and dominate! Besides the past OLines looked good when you get QB’s like Timmy Chang, Colt Brennan, etc…plus an experienced receiving corps and bruising backs like West Keli’ikipi, Nate Ilaoa, and Reagan Mauia helped out alot. IMO


  19. mctruck April 21, 2010 7:48 am

    wouldn’t u know it?!…as soon as I say it….the format changes, presto-chango!!


  20. tommui April 21, 2010 7:52 am

    Willie: Re #16 – the reason why I brought it up is that all of these things are recorded almost instantly to avoid confusion, malpractice suits etc.

    So why can’t NCAA realize that instead of going on about records made up after the fact?

    Sounds like people who don’t believe live-birth announcements made in the newspapers forty-some years ago.


  21. Pauoa Boy April 21, 2010 7:53 am

    Good Luck to all the potential NFL draftees representing Hawaii these next couple days. Tyson Alualu should go early, and hope John Estes gets drafted too. Also, hope Nate Ilaoa and previous Warriors who attended the Pro-Day make it back onto an NFL roster!


  22. al April 21, 2010 7:53 am

    coach tormey is replacing gordie shaw??

    or was that a senior moment?
    and he calls me “older”?

    goodmorning ahouse.


  23. al April 21, 2010 7:57 am

    oh no. mrs. ahouse will be giving a few “wacks” to the head later today.

    need to teach her the counter to the “wack block”.
    the punch to the opu would work.


  24. A-House April 21, 2010 8:04 am

    OK, guys, rub it in as I always mix up Shaw for Tormey and vice versa – after all they are only the coaches!! eh, al, you still “old” – and i get too many senior moments now – spooky – i might even show up at a tailgate or cattle call and not remember the name(s) of people attending – that may be a blessing as i can talk stink about anybody and not worry.

    Moving on to Shamburger, if staying home and continuing to be a “role model” for his 1 year old nephew was so important, he should not have taken the trip to Hawaii – opinion: now it smells that he took Hawaii for a ride!!!!!


  25. Kendall April 21, 2010 8:06 am

    Al,

    Heard some scoops about Charles Odum. He is currently being recruited by three D1 schools, two from the big sky and one from the Missouri Valley, if Gib acts quickly we could have a shot at getting him.


  26. A-House April 21, 2010 8:14 am

    tom mui:

    #20, maybe NCAA wants to see it in writing from the doc that the individual’s injury will, in his opinion, keep him out of a sport for a long time – NCAA investigators/examiners may not have the medical knowledge to conclude that the injury is season ending – now, why the heck am I backing up the NCAA – actually, I am being facetious

    BTW, anyone take a really close look at the Declaration of Independence or was it the Constitution and notice the number of misspelled words?


  27. Manoa Mist April 21, 2010 8:16 am

    Great news for us and Letuli, but something just bothers me in the big picture about players getting six years in college. I mean, where does it end? What if a player has documentation that he had season-ending injuries over four years. Does he then get eight years to play college ball?
    I thought college was a four-year deal.
    And Brashton no good, but Letuli okay? Something is wrong somewhere.
    But our o-line just got better…


  28. al April 21, 2010 8:18 am

    thanks kendall.
    i believe that the gibber already observed him at his tour of csi a few weeks ago. btw, carrick felix hasn’t signed with duke yet.

    btw, your last name isn’t jackson is it?


  29. Kazz April 21, 2010 8:20 am

    CONGRATS TO LAUPEPA LETULI!!! NOW… TIME TO PLAY!!!!!!!! 😈


  30. Pomai April 21, 2010 8:22 am

    #16 Willie Now your asking the impossible for the NCAA to use common sense.


  31. Kazz April 21, 2010 8:25 am

    Manoa Mist,

    I see what you are talking about with all these extra years being given consideration, but for me, what bothers me the most are these basketball kids jumping out of college and into the NBA. I mean thank God it was somewhat curbed by changing some rules to have them stay longer but overall if I had a vote, I’d vote for ALL student athletes to stay in college until their respective senior years prior to making an attempt at the pros.

    I’m personally tired of this “will they return for their senior year” stuff.

    Besides, they’ll get some kind of degree out of it. No more of these NFLers or NBA people without college degrees!!!


  32. SteveM April 21, 2010 8:32 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Good news for Letuli.


  33. Kazz April 21, 2010 8:34 am

    There are a lot of intriguing things coming out of the latest list of NCAA Division I softball statistics this week.

    While the home run hitting prowess of Hawai’i has been the talk of the league, we’re betting not many people know this: The WAC accounts for an amazing four of the top 10 home run hitters in the nation.

    Not only is Hawai’i’s Kelly Majam one of the leading candidates for national Freshman of the Year and tied with Georgia Tech’s Jen Yee for the NCAA home run lead with 24, but fellow Wahine Melissa Gonzalez is fourth with 17 homers. Kathy Cox (16 HRs) of Boise State is eighth, and Fresno State’s Michelle Moses ranks 10th in the country with 15 home runs.

    Never in WAC softball history has the conference had four of the nation’s top 10 home run hitters.

    In the category of doubles per game, Nevada’s Kelsey Starr ranks ninth,
    while Jessica Iwata of Hawai’i is 11th. Majam and New Mexico State’s Hoku Nohara rank in the top 50 in on-base percentage.
    Moses is 26th, Nohara 30th, Majam 41st, Iwata 42nd and San Jose State’s Brittany McConnell 45th in RBI per game. Majam is fourth, Iwata 32nd and the Spartans’ Alyssa Sulay 50th in runs per game. In the category of slugging percentage, Majam, Nohara and Iwata all rank in the top 25.

    Morgan Melloh of Fresno State is 19th in the nation in strikeouts per seven innings. Melloh strikes out an average of 10.1 batters per game, significantly better than her 2008 season when she won WAC Freshman and Pitcher of the Year and struck out an average of 8.8 per contest. Utah State’s Nicole Tindall is 26th in triples per game and Hawai’i’s Stephanie Ricketts ranks 23rd in victories.

    In team categories, Hawai’i leads the country in both home runs per game and slugging percentage (.634). New Mexico State (22nd) and Fresno State (40th) also rank in the top 50 in slugging percentage. The Wahine are fourth in the country in scoring, averaging 7.3 runs per game.

    New Mexico State (18th), Hawai’i (26th) and Fresno State (46th) all rank in the Top 50 in team batting average. Fresno State has the 34th best team earned-run average in the country, allowing 2.05 runs per game. San Jose State and New Mexico State rank sixth and seventh in the nation in double plays turned per game.

    *Aside from National Freshman of the Year consideration, Majam should be a LOCK for WAC Freshman of the Year 2010. She would eventually be joining fellow teammates Katie Grimes (2007) and Stephanie Ricketts (2009) in that honor.


  34. J-Dog April 21, 2010 8:37 am

    What happened to Rocky Savaiigaea? I thought he was applying for a sixth year as well.


  35. Pomai April 21, 2010 8:39 am

    After looking around I found a guy who plays for UCF was granted a seventh year of eligibility, also Yonus Davis I think got a seventh year for Boise.


  36. Da Punchbowl Kid April 21, 2010 8:43 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    “contemporaneous documentation”.

    That appears to be the phrase that pays. As Garret so eloquently outlined here earlier, that’s the difference between success and failure in cases like Brasthon’s and Laupepa’s.

    When a player, any player on any team, suffers a season ending injury in the future, we need a system which will automatically begin to compile
    the “contemporaneous documentation” which those nitpickers need to rule on these matters.

    Nuff said.


  37. Slugger April 21, 2010 8:48 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    Wonderful news about Laupepa!

    Good luck to Estes and all of the Hawaii players in the NFL draft this week!


  38. Da Punchbowl Kid April 21, 2010 8:48 am

    All this talk about nitpickers has made my scalp itchy! 😆

    And the talk about counter punching to opu made my stomach sore- from laughing! What a visual! Shame on you al, promotoing domestic violence like that!


  39. Kazz April 21, 2010 8:54 am

    RE: Rocky.

    I believe ST wrote that Savaiigaea’s case was the longest shot by far compared to Brashton’s and Pepa’s.

    Savaiigaea’s locker was already assigned to another player.

  41. Old Diver April 21, 2010 9:24 am

    My hope is that Lacount got a taste of what its like being first team and pushes himself during the summer. With an up tempo offense this year we will need all the Olinemen to be ready to start.


  42. VballFan April 21, 2010 9:25 am

    Anyone know if adult beverages will be sold at the VB game on Sat?


  43. A-House April 21, 2010 9:28 am

    Additional years:

    what happens to a BYU player who takes his 2 year mission, returns, has a season ending injury as a Junior – he already has 5 years – still has a “red shirt year” and a “medical year” – how old will he be when he finishes his senior year and how many years in the program?

    2 things I wish the NCAA would reconsider: no 2-year off mission for any college student; and all football turf must be same color – GREEN!!

    Boise St may have had many champioship years and won 2 Fiesta Bowls, but how much $$$ and market share would they really bring to a new conference? Wonder how many Boise St fans would travel to the Sugar Bowl and spend $$ like Hawaii fans? They can drive to the Fiesta Bowl.


  44. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 9:44 am

    Did someone say GREEN?

    Here’s to the team in GREEN?

    Great news about Letuli! Make it worth the wait. Don’t look back and continue to look forward.

    Changing the subject. I woke up this morning thinking about walk-ons.

    ST–

    Is or when will Liko Satele be receiving a scholarship? I thought walk-ons who contribute to the success of the team, are granted scholarships i.e. Moniz, C. Paredes, Torres, Pollard, etc. Liko was almost a full time starter on defense last year. You would think he is in line of receiving a scholarship. Maybe he can get his brother’s. Heck, he already took his number for a day. Thoughts?


  45. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 9:45 am

    ?=!


  46. papajoe2 April 21, 2010 9:46 am

    A-House
    If Boise moves to another conference, they may not even make a BCS bowl game. In the Mountain West, they would have to play Utah, BYWho, Texas Tech, and others to qualify. Being a non BCS conference, they would have to go unbeaten to qualify, not to mention their non conference schedule. Shouldn’t they stay in the WAC and take a chance with Fresno, Hawaii, and Nevada? And yes, we would have more fans in a BCS bowl game WHEN we qualify (next year or two). Go Warriors!!!


  47. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 9:46 am

    ok…that didn’t clarify things.

    Here’s to the team in GREEN!

    I would think so. It’s the usual game time of 7pm.

    I think beer sales start to become a question at those 11pm games for basketball. I think the last two years me and my friends went, we never attempted to buy beer thinking they cannot sell alcohol after 10:30pm.

    Thanks for getting the Tsaiko Athletic Fund setup. Tsaiko Athletic supporters sounds funny…


  53. Stephen Tsai April 21, 2010 10:44 am

    If there is a scholarship available, I’m sure Liko Satele is being considered. Same for Kamalu Umu.


  54. Stephen Tsai April 21, 2010 10:49 am

    Tom Mui, Willie:
    At issue with Brashton, I’m told, is not medical bills or appointments
    There was nothing written, in 2005, saying that Brashton will not play this year because of the shoulder injury. There were affidavits after that saying he did not play because of injuries, but nothing written during that year.
    I think the assumption back then was a redshirt year is a redshirt year, whether its for medical or developmental reasons. Nobody anticipated that Brashton would get hurt four years later and need contemporaneous documents from 2005.


  55. Kendall April 21, 2010 10:49 am

    No Al, my last name isn’t Jackson.

    Carrick Felix not signed yet? That’s strange. Isn’t he committed to Duke?
    Hmmm…


  56. protector April 21, 2010 10:49 am

    Letuli will give added depth & experience to the O-Line, esp. with all the injuries. I hope he can stay healthy for the entire season. Think of the impact he’d make in terms of draftability, seeing as how teams already showed interest. Must be the size thing, right? Probably wouldn’t be because of the “wealth” of video they have on him.

    Brashton should’ve been here too..grrr! Sorry, hard to let that one go.


  57. Stretch April 21, 2010 10:49 am

    Tsaiko Athletic Fund

    A few years back James brought it up, and recently, WDoc brought up the idea again. This account makes sense for the group as it will allow everyone to make donations straight to the Tsaiko Athletic Fund under UH Foundation but we have input where the money goes. Each person making a donation will get the tax deduction and, most importantly, we don’t need to have one person receiving all the checks/money, then make one donation. We presently have a small balance in the account to get it started.

    Example: If we decide to buy softball rings, everyone goes online to make the donation and once enough money is collected for a purchase, I will call JD and have him take care of it from their side.

    It was mentioned once about having payroll deduction going to donations. It is not a payroll deduction but it is possible to have a monthly donation automatically be put on your credit card. It can be of any amount and will help build the account balance.


  58. VballFan April 21, 2010 10:55 am

    Thanks Kazz !!!


  59. (Jesse)James April 21, 2010 11:02 am

    Good morning Tsaikos…well, almost lunchtime…

    Hope all is well…

    Prayers for Heather Mcmackin….and a speedy recovery.

    Good to hear about Pepa….

    Thanks Stretch for setting up the account. I think I still have some T-shirt money to dump in there as well…

    Good luck to all the Hawaii boys vying for NFL spots….make us proud.

    Okay, gotta go for now….see you guys later.

    Pomai:

    do you know the final cost for the bracelets in 2007?


  65. haka April 21, 2010 11:58 am

    Take Care Heather!


  66. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc April 21, 2010 11:58 am

    Mahalo Stretch for following up on this. Although the account could have been set up four months ago after the initial meeting with Koa Anuenue staff, it was a major concern that, under those specific circumstances, there would be very little participation from Tsai-ko regulars.


  67. Kazz April 21, 2010 12:16 pm

    A-house,

    I think the bracelets came out around $2,400.00.


  68. Kazz April 21, 2010 12:21 pm

    In addition, that price keeps the NCAA off our backs as I believe the “limit” is $300.00 per student athlete with regards to “gifts” which is what these things classify as.

    When speaking with Pomai before the softball game on Friday, the actual making of the bracelets don’t take that long and hopefully we’ll keep “waiting” on when and if we can pull the “trigger” on this thing if you know what I mean… In essence, hopefully if there are bracelets to be made this year, they’ll say MORE than just “WAC Champs”… 😉


  69. duffer (iPhone) April 21, 2010 12:23 pm

    Kamehameha Maui boys play for the MIL golf championship.

    Hoping it’s a good news, bad news day. Good news, the boys pull out a victory, bad news, I get a Stretch haircut.

    IMUA WARRIROS!


  70. Kazz April 21, 2010 12:25 pm

    Thinking back, I think when we all first started looking at this thing back in the summer of 2007, several people looked around and I even went to Jostens to see female sports championship rings and they were in the $250.00 range per ring, I have no clue as to a “bulk” price, but Jostens is like the top tier as they do the Super Bowl rings and other pro sports stuff as well.

    Im not sure who Pomai found, but that’s a deal what we got and the bracelets for 2007 came out pretty nice. I think the team voted on bracelets as pendants and rings were options. Once we found out what the team requested, then it was good to go. Seems like most of the Wahine teams prefer bracelets though. I think the Wahine volleyball team gets bracelets too.


  71. papajoe2 April 21, 2010 12:35 pm

    shouldn’t the softball wahine win first before getting bracelets? Not quite guaranteed yet. eh no jinx them OK?

    bracelets we are discussing was for the 2007 WAC champs where Tsaikos donated enough $$$ to purchase a bracelet for each Wahine.

    get good chance that history may repeat itself in 2010!

    All quiet on the “UH” front – wassup with men and women BB recruiting news? Coaches are holding it close to the vest?

    Hope Pa’auli (sp) makes his decison known soon – it would help placate some Tsaiko fans to da max!!!

    Com’on ST: give us the updated news on JR day and who were offered – little, and I mean little, minds are dying to know!

    A House Na Wahine bb had one senior graduating this season, Dita. Coach Dana already announced early signing of a guard last year, and she signed another bb player a few weeks ago. You got to read the paper, you are falling behind in the info world.


  83. al April 21, 2010 1:20 pm

  84. Ralph April 21, 2010 1:21 pm

    Adolpo out of Molokai will be joining the Na Wahine, she plans on playing both vb and bb. I hope she finds time to train for both and be able to keep up with her studies.


  85. Pauoa Boy April 21, 2010 1:22 pm

    Wow, Coach Shaw said we get about 22-23 Offensive Lineman on the team??? Realleh??? With only 5 spots to fill we should have a solid 5 and quality backups at each position on the line. Hmm…I wonder when Lefotu shows up if he can be plugged in to start right away…I know Coach Mack was saying he could and was the face of this recruiting class, right???

    PapaJoe2,

    I agree!!! I think we’re being careful right now as A-House pointed out, this was all posts about 2007. Just a rehash to prepare ourselves just in case. 😉

    The thing is, there was SOME drama too after the kala was collected. Apparently Koa Anuenue told Pomai need to give them the money and then they will handle the purchase and whatnot. So we did that. Well… the timeline was like this:

    (May be a little off)

    Late spring 2007:
    -Wahine win WAC.
    -Wahine go through the regionals
    -Wahine make it to Super Regionals.

    Summer 2007- Fall 2007:
    Word came out via THIS BLOG that while the football team were getting their rings through the kala at Na Koa, the softball team’s booster club isn’t as rich so NOTHING for them. Plenny people got mad, rightfully so, (WHY CANT THE NCAA DO ANYTHING????), so then everyone combined their heads and came up with a solution.

    Spring 2008 – Summer 2008:
    NOTHING. The money was collected MONTHS ago and the jeweler was selected… and NOTHING. People on the blog went as far as to grill interim AD Carl Clapp at the time in January 2008 about the status of the bracelets since we turned the money over to Koa Anuenue to order them already!!! Keep in mind a whole NEW softball team has already started and FINISH their season with some people from 2007 still on the team and some from 07 graduated and moved back home.

    Fall 2008:
    FINALLY. On October 12th (I think), the 2007 team was acknowledged at half time of the Wahine volleyball match against Latech. This was homecoming week 2008. THEN they got their bracelets. Earlier in the year, the Wahine hosted the 2008 WAC Softball Tournament and Bob Coolen, out of respect for the RWSS being a “neutral location” during the tournament, decided NOT to distribute the bracelets to the team.

    Again, I may be a little off as I’m doing this by memory. I do know for sure, the actual distribution was during that specific volleyball game at the 10 minute break and I know for sure the process took over a freakin’ YEAR to reach it’s ultimate goal of getting those bracelets into the hands of the ladies that busted their okoles off to earn them.

    The money wasn’t a challenge to raise, but the wait was painful. So, the hope is for a SMOOTHER distribution process SHOULD we find ourselves celebrating a 2010 WAC Softball Championship for the Wahine again…. And HOPEFULLY MORE!!! 😉


  87. Kazz April 21, 2010 1:30 pm

    Ralph,

    Do you know why Patrick Knapp resigned from the team?


  88. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 1:31 pm

    If there is a scholarship available, I’m sure Liko Satele is being considered. Same for Kamalu Umu.

    Salamat po!

    I hope if there is one scholarship left, it would go to L. Satele. He is more deserving in my view than Umu. He paid his dues.

    Well wishes for the boss of the boss!

    Steve M. #79. Thanks for the cruise ship tour. My brother convinced my wife and I to go on a cruise. Went to Alaska. Been hooked ever since. Had 8 cruises already and itching for more. We went on the Pride Of Aloha in Hawaii. The PoA looks like a better class of ship. We learned that cruises are actually cheaper that a Vegas trip as it is probably longer and got free meals and free nightly entertainment. No gambling in Hawaii but other destinations allow gambling out at sea. Carefull about gambling though as the ships machines are Kind of tight and I haven’t heard of people winning big at the card tables or craps.Booze aboard is expensive, like $5+ for beer on the NCL local cruises. If the Tsaikos went together on a cruise, the ship may never return home.

    I try to make a ki-ai, but in my case it ends up sounding more like the “yiiiiipe” of a frightened dog. How fitting.

    In all seriousness, Sweety is the kindest, most non-violent person I have ever known. All she needs to do is look at me with her big brown eyes to check my BS, which is often enough I reckon.

    Jeramy Lay will not return to the mbb team.


  115. Kazz April 21, 2010 3:15 pm

    Us “simpletons” in Hawaii aren’t used to odd weather phenomena other than rare hail the size of rice near Pearl Harbor so I asked “Wiki” for some clarification:

    On Earth, most dust devils are very small and weak, often less than 3 feet (0.9 m) in diameter with maximum winds averaging about 45 miles per hour (70 km/h), and they often dissipate less than a minute after forming. On rare occasions, a dust devil can grow very large and intense, sometimes reaching a diameter of up to 300 feet (90 m) with winds in excess of 60 mph (100 km/h) and can last for upwards of 20 minutes before dissipating.

    One such dust devil struck the Coconino County Fairgrounds in Flagstaff, Arizona, on September 14, 2000. Extensive damage occurred to several temporary tents, stands and booths, as well as some permanent fairgrounds structures. In addition, several injuries were reported, but there were no fatalities. Based on the degree of damage left behind, it is estimated that the dust devil produced winds as high as 75 mph (120 km/h), which is equivalent to a moderate-strength EF0 tornado.

    On May 19, 2003, a dust devil lifted the roof off a two-story building in Lebanon, Maine, causing it to collapse and kill a man inside. On June 18, 2008, a dust devil collapsed a shed near Casper, Wyoming, killing a woman.

    UH Basketball guard Jeremy Lay not returning to UH

    “I enjoyed my time here in Hawaii,” Lay said, according to the UH statement. “Things didn’t turn out exactly how I’d hoped, but I’m proud of the effort I gave and I look forward to new opportunities on the basketball court.”


  117. Pauoa Boy April 21, 2010 3:17 pm

    Words in the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were not mis-spelled — at least by the conventions of the day. The current American language, as we know it, is considered a living language.

    Funny thing, too. The kids who have difficulty spelling and reading can read the documents without any problems. Whereas, those who can spell and have no difficulty reading stumble.

    papajoe2 — “If the Tsaikos went together on a cruise….”. Those who have cruised can picture this and maybe cringe a little. 😆

    One 7 day 24/7 tailgate with the fuud supplied. Decide to meet at what restaurant at a certain time and it’s instant Cattle Call. Go the Gold Rush Saloon at 2100 and it’s Karaoke Call (I think if they hear the Tsai-ko Tsingers a couple nights, they’ll give us the keys to karaoke cabinet). Booze prices are competitive to what I’ve seen in average restaurants, but I’m not a drinker. Noticed brown bottles ranged $4.25 – 4.95. Also Happy Hour Specials start at 0800. 🙄

    Been trying to get a few Tsai-kos together for a cruise, if not a full scale blog cruise. First steps is to get the first-time people on the local cruise, but probably won’t happen soon.

    papajoe2 — please send me your email. stevem.hnl (at) gmail.com

    Kevin Nickelberry, a former Clemson assistant and Hampton head coach, will not be part of the coaching staff of new Hawaii men’s basketball coach Gib Arnold.

    Nickelberry officially joined the DePaul coaching staff today.

    He was said to be a favorite for one of the two vacant assistant spots remaining on Arnold’s staff, along with Brigham Young-Hawaii assistant Brandyn Akana.

    Nickelberry’s decision might free up a spot for current UH assistant Eran Ganot, a member of former coach Bob Nash’s crew, who has remained on staff this spring to assist with schedule building and recruiting.

    scholarships are divided like pie for all of the minor sports.
    the big two bb and football do not split scholarship money.
    the rest typically do.

    rare is the player on a full ride for baseball. i believe only two rainbows were ever given full rides. the first being derek tatsuno and the last was levon largusa.

    the bb and vb teams for men end up carving up the scholies in halves and quarters. often good academically sound student/athletes may also apply and receive scholarship/grant money to supplement the college thing.

    most of the women sports have enough scholarships to give full rides to all of the scholarship athletes. that is part of the gender equity stuff.


  138. Ralph April 21, 2010 5:21 pm

    Kazz don’t know anything about Knapp, but he sure looked much older than the coaching staff in general, lots of experience and wisdom, maybe lost in a generational shuffle-like you have a generation x conversation with wassaupDoc, she stares at you and turns to Protector for an interpretation.


  139. Ralph April 21, 2010 5:21 pm

    :0 🙂


  140. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 5:27 pm

    NorthShoreFan–

    This should help explain why.

    You may be wondering why some of the figures in the preceding chart are not whole numbers. There are two different designations: equivalency sports and headcount sports. For a headcount sport, each athlete on scholarship counts toward the maximum headcount the school can have on scholarship, so whether a player is given a full athletic scholarship or given only one dollar, s/he is counted toward the headcount for that sport. Since a men’s basketball team can only have thirteen scholarship athletes in their headcount, a school might as well offer thirteen full scholarships so it can attract the thirteen best players possible. For headcount sports, full scholarships are more common. The list is not long. Men’s headcount sports are basketball and football, and women’s headcount sports are basketball, gymnastics, tennis, and volleyball.

    For an equivalency sport, coaches have a certain total dollar amount in the “scholarship pot,” but can split it up among multiple athletes in any proportions they want. They can carry more athletes on partial scholarships and this provides the opportunity to develop more players. It is harder to get a full scholarship in an equivalency sport because it is in the coach’s best interest to use the allotment of scholarship money to get as many highpotential athletes on the team as possible. Every other sport offered at the collegiate level not mentioned above as a headcount sport is an equivalency sport. Look back at the chart for a minute. You will notice that D-I men’s soccer allows 9.9 scholarships and D-I men’s volleyball allows 4.5. With eleven soccer players on the fi eld at a time, and six volleyball players on a court, even all of the first string players can’t be awarded full scholarships. And don’t forget all the other players waiting on the sidelines. For most sports, partial-scholarship athletes, walk-ons, and non-scholarship athletes are an important part of the mix.


  141. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 5:47 pm

    Ohhhh, headcount sports may not be subdivided–they must be awarded in full

    That’s what we found out after we went through all the bs. It was the person from ‘Ahahui Koa Ānuenue who insisted that they had to purchase the bracelets. But that’s all water under the bridge, the girls got their bracelets an recognition of their wining the WAC.

  144. Kazz April 21, 2010 6:20 pm

    Ralph,

    I thought Knapp fit in ok with the rest of the staff. But that was just my opinion after observing them all season long from the stands.

    He would yell, he would toss out some “hi-5s”, he would get his $0.02 in there when timeouts were called, etc….

    Kinda weird though. Nothing but a blurb when it was mentioned he resigned. Nothing more than just a single sentence.

    Are you sure? I didn’t hear Dave Reardon on the Sports Animals today.


  147. Kazz April 21, 2010 6:49 pm

    According to “SportsBow”, Bo Barnes signed with UH Rainbow Warrior Basketball.

    It was according to Barnes’ FaceBook.

    I don’t have Facebook so I can’t tell.

    God Bless and a fast recovery to Heather Mack!

    Welcome to the Warriors Scott Hartley!

    Mahalo for setting up the Tsai-ko fund! I’ll be checkin it out when I get to a computer.

    Nitey nite and sweet Warrior Dreams!!!


  149. al April 21, 2010 7:06 pm

    with seven scholies to give…

    we could use a pg for sure.
    and a great athlete to fill the rest.

    in the house

    bo barnes
    trevor wiseman
    vander joaquim
    josten thomas
    jordan coleman

    of the two more scholies one should be a pg and at least one jc guy of the two just to ensure balance.


  150. al April 21, 2010 7:08 pm

    courtesy of sportsbow….

    mean the numbers on bo barnes

    2008-2009 season stats @ Scottsdale Christian HS:
    Scoring average: 19.2 ppg
    FG shooting: (220 for 367) for 60%
    3-pt FG shooting: (71 for 131) for 55%
    Free Throws: (85 for 116) for 73%


  151. Pauoa Boy April 21, 2010 7:16 pm

    Nice, finally a pure shooter that can hit consistently from the outside, good job Coach Gib! Do me a favor and go grab Okonji from LMU, or surprise me with a Shaquille O’neal clone hiding under a rock somewhere…mahalo!


  152. protector April 21, 2010 7:30 pm

    Looking at the kid’s video, it does seem like he could be a “zone-buster”. He looks like he’s used to getting the ball & being the primary shooter. Hope he can learn to play within the offensive schemes mapped out by Coach Gib. Unless of course he’ll just play the run-and-gun type of game made famous by the old UNLV & Loyola-Marymount teams of the past.


  153. protector April 21, 2010 7:34 pm

    The signing of Scott Hartley & the 2 Shanes (and hopefully a coule more good ones) should enable Coach Wade to re-load rather than re-build. Good job by Coach Wade & his staff. Now let’s hope he can continue to punctuate this season with a first round win!


  154. jm2375 April 21, 2010 7:34 pm

    For most families, daycare expenses form a huge chunk of their monthly budget, and it has become extremely difficult for them to see a way through it.


  156. duffer April 21, 2010 7:42 pm

    Well, the boys lost today so I get to keep my hair!

    Gotta concentrate on qualifying for States. 🙂


  157. Ralph April 21, 2010 8:04 pm

    i didn’t realize that Na Wahine basketball had 15 scholarships available, that’s a lot of scholarships to help reload every year. No reason to have a down year due to too many graduates, got to spread them out to keep the starting lineup filled with juniors and seniors. So how come we had only one graduate, Dita, this season. Two others left the program-Hamilton and Linton.


  158. Ralph April 21, 2010 8:09 pm

    Wasn’t it senior night the Na Wahine dressed 8 players to face Boise State. Two were injured, one suspension, that’s 11, one left the program-Linton, that’s 12. Aya was added during the season to a scholarship. Possibly the wbb does not give the full allowed number of scholarships, otherwise UH point guard could have had some relief.


  159. Bulla April 21, 2010 8:18 pm

    coach gib and coach wade continue to shake the bushes…..great job coaches 🙂


  160. Bulla April 21, 2010 8:20 pm

    ST
    what the word on the blvd…..heard there’s some shaking of the trees with the coaches after next week friday…..can you shed any light?


  161. Curt April 21, 2010 8:31 pm

    Al,

    You’re right. We’ve got to get that quality point guard. With the up-tempo offense, you can’t have too many. Right now, we’ve only got Hiram.


  162. Curt April 21, 2010 8:36 pm

    Bulla,

    Do you know what sport this might affect?


  163. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 8:39 pm

    Ralph–

    #158

    That is the maximum the NCAA allows. With how WBB hasn’t made any money since Vince Goo left, maybe they no longer have the financial resources to fully fund the maximum scholarship. Just an assumption.


  164. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 8:42 pm

    WBB currently has 11 players on the roster. With Adolpho coming in this upcoming school year, she would make 12.


  165. Ralph April 21, 2010 8:46 pm

    okay, Gladdis isn’t on scholarship, 10 + 3 recruits, roster of 13.


  166. el guapo April 21, 2010 8:49 pm

    Adolpho is not going to be on the team in this upcoming school year…


  167. el guapo April 21, 2010 8:50 pm

    …because she still gets to play her senior year at Molokai


  168. Ralph April 21, 2010 8:51 pm

    wbb next year on scholarship: 6 seniors, 3 juniors, 1 soph, and 3 recruits. One of the recruits is a juco, don’t know if she has 2 or 3 years of eligibillity. Bolla wasn’t planning right, 1 senior this year and 6 next year. I’m not sure if Hamilton and Linton would have been juniors or seniors next year.


  169. Ralph April 21, 2010 8:52 pm

    thanks El quapo, looks like the Na Wahine is following the men, 12 scholarships.


  170. βρεω808 April 21, 2010 8:53 pm

    e-bolla didn’t know the difference between flossing and wiping his … ‘okole! 😈


  171. BleedGreen808 April 21, 2010 8:56 pm

    My apologies el guapo


  172. Curt April 21, 2010 8:56 pm

    Bulla,

    Probably best not to answer my question. Otherwise, there’ll be lots of speculation. Isn’t there a old 50’s rock n roll song that goes, “There’s whole lotsa shakin’ going on.” Hopefully all for da betta.


  173. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:13 pm

    Jerry Lee Lewis!


  174. Slugger April 21, 2010 9:14 pm

    Good luck in the future to Jeramy Lay. He definitely put in mucho effort playing with a hernia before he left to get it fixed. It looks like Coach Gib is going after players with height. Looking forward to seeing how they do this year.

    I put Alvin Katahara on the spot by saying he’d have a donation box at the softball game. We’re working on it, but he still has to get some approvals. W-Doc has a plexiglass donation box we can use. I’m going to see if I can find another one. We need volunteers to babysit the box at the games. W-Doc & I can take a shift. Anyone else want to guard the kala? Will let you know if we can get this off the ground.


  175. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:19 pm

    Jerry Lee Lewis 1957. Eh Bulla were born before ’57, how about you Curt.

  176. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:21 pm

    Slugger Don Weir already volunteered and offered the first $20. All matching funds are welcomed.


  177. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:25 pm

    Slugger I hope the PA announcer helps promoting the donation box through the game. If you sit directly in front of the pressbox, first row main isle, everyone can see whomever is keeper of the money box and hopefully encourages the PA announcer to drum up business.


  178. Slugger April 21, 2010 9:26 pm

    Ralph,

    I believe Don offered to sit with the donation box at one game on Saturday. We have Friday night and a double-header on Saturday.

    Does anyone speak Japanese here who will be at the football practice on Saturday? I am meeting a couple from Japan on campus and wanted to take them to the football practice. There will be coaches from Japan at the coaches clinic that day. No spreken ze Nihon-wa. (how’s that for mixing it all up?)


  179. Slugger April 21, 2010 9:28 pm

    Ralph,

    I am going to get in touch with John McNamara about the announcements. Alvin said John’s in charge of that. Yup, it’s called marketing…


  180. Kazz April 21, 2010 9:28 pm

    Ralph,

    Jennifer Hamilton would have been a junior next season, Linton too.


  181. Slugger April 21, 2010 9:29 pm

    Ralph,

    I am going to get in touch with John McNamara about the announcements.


  182. Slugger April 21, 2010 9:31 pm

    ok, that was weird…didn’t see my post so I changed it…and then…Voila!

    Stopping while I’m ahead…


  183. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:32 pm

    Slugger ask McNamara why didn’t he announce the pending ticket sale to the mvb playoff at the last softball game. He was there, WassupDoc can confirm that he sat by her.


  184. Kazz April 21, 2010 9:32 pm

    Donation Box Concerns/Questions:

    1) Im not a fan of this plexiglass idea. Im uncomfortable with the idea of a see thru box with cash inside of it out in public.

    2) Why isn’t any UH employed individual guarding the box?


  185. Curt April 21, 2010 9:39 pm

    Ralph,

    That’s a great clip of Jerry Lee Lewis doing one of his signature songs. Wow. His hands, feet, and hair are flyin’ all over the place…very entertaining. Be interesting to find out what all this shakin’ is all about up at Manoa.


  186. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:40 pm

    it cost money to use a UH employee, HGEA union member, he or she wants union wages and benefits. Probably why Coolen doesn’t want to charge admission- cost money to hire ticket sellers, there’s printing cost, and the admission fee might keep attendance down. But if you win and play exciting softball consistently, the fans will come. They came when Brooke Wilkins pitched. Coolen has won only 2 WAC titles in 19 years, and our team made the NCAA invitee list 7 times, not the kind of consistency that will draw lots of fans.


  187. Curt April 21, 2010 9:46 pm

    Ralph,

    Not nice to ask a Tsaiko how old they are. Ha-ha. To give you a clue how old I am, they were building the pyramids when I was born. 😉

    P.S. I can’t get rid of Jerry Lee Lewis’ song, “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On” out of my head now. Thanks to you. Oh well–life is rough.


  188. Ralph April 21, 2010 9:51 pm

    so many earthquakes lately, I hope Mauna Loa remains quiet.


  189. al April 21, 2010 9:55 pm

    ralphie moment…
    what do you mean?
    earthquakes = volcano ?


  190. Curt April 21, 2010 10:02 pm

    Mauna Loa? I hope Punchbowl & Diamond Head stays quiet.


  191. Slugger April 21, 2010 10:03 pm

    Kazz,

    That’s why we have someone sitting with the box pitching the donations. You don’t leave the box out there all alone. I offered our services because of the short time frame to get someone from UH Foundation. As Ralph also suggests, it would be overtime for an employee. I think a see-through box would be more conducive to people to drop in kala. The wahine are doing so well, I’m sure people will pitch in to support them.

    Ralph,

    I think by the time we knew that the VolleyBows were going to host a first round game, McNamara was gone. I just think someone should have told the announcer sooner, like in the middle of the 2nd game. So I did it…


  192. what's wrong April 21, 2010 10:03 pm

    #175
    What’s wrong here?
    Lay’s release has nothing to do with height.
    Please refer to Jeff Portnoy’s blog to get the real story.

    http://hoopstalk.honadvblogs.com/


  193. Slugger April 21, 2010 10:25 pm

    Al I was thinking of a big volcanic eruption with a big rumble that shakes Hilo and elsewhere. I remember Hawaii’s volcanoes are labeled non-explosive like mt St. Helens but there is always the first time.


  196. Ralph April 21, 2010 10:57 pm

  198. Kazz April 21, 2010 11:26 pm

    American Samoa = Pacific Plate = Same as us.

    12/21/2012…


  199. Kazz April 21, 2010 11:32 pm

    With regards to the Big Island, the big threat we all face is a huge chunk of the island falling into the pacific. There is a huge rift on either Mauna Loa or Mauna Kea (which ever side is on the Hilo side) and eventual eruptions and small quakes (which are common on the Big Island) will send that sucker into the ocean. Pretty much it’s like 8% of the Big Island sliding into the Pacific causing a MASSIVE tsunami.

    Several UH professors and geologists from across the world agreed that is the scenario and it was even discussed at length on National Geographic’s TV special regarding “super tsunamis”.

    Of course it’s one of those “not if it will happen, but when” scenarios.


  200. Kazz April 21, 2010 11:36 pm

    Ralph,

    Yeah but were they charging admission when Brooke Wilkins was playing?

    I know they charged admission during the Stacey Porter years and then attendance dropped SIGNIFICANTLY and since then that has been the #1 reason Coolen has publically stated why he’s not a fan of admission at softball for the time being. Granted, the Porter years doesn’t exactly compare to what Wilkins and Co. accomplished, but still…

    BTW, they also won a conference championship PRIOR to entering the WAC and it’s 8 regional appearances. 😉 (yeah yeah, I’m nitpicking…)


  201. Kazz April 21, 2010 11:40 pm

    No wait, there couldn’t have been admission during the the time Wilkins was here. The Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium didn’t exist in 1994.


  202. Ralph April 21, 2010 11:54 pm

    Kazz i’m counting only the Coolen years, one of the appearances was earned either by Alison or Alika, prior to Coolen.

    Wilkens pitched in the stadium, the old softball stadium, but I don’t think they had a surrounding exterior fence. Reason UH couldn’t hold a regional, couldn’t charge a fee without an enclosed stadium.

    hey, Nevada charges $7 general admission for softball, got to check out their attendance when UH plays them.


  203. Ralph April 21, 2010 11:56 pm

  204. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc April 21, 2010 11:58 pm

    I have a large plastic box as well as three very large plastic jars and three medium-sized plastic jars – all of which have been used to collect $$$ donations over the past couple of years for several different non-profits.

    Let’s set a goal for the three games – $500? $1000? Want to have a contest with the winner being the one who makes the closest guess? I’m sure we could get a nice gift certificate for dinner or a stay at a Waikiki hotel – hint, hint Tsai-kos who work for hotels in Waikiki. The drawing would be open to everyone in the park; however, over 98% will make a donation just to be on good side of the various gods.

    Kazz: When the donation issue was first raised well over a month ago, I know I made it very clear that this would be done by volunteers and their friends. State employees would not be involved until it came time to turn the $$$$ in.

    Actually, I like the idea raised a week or so ago about having a VERY LARGE football player guarding the jar. Maybe we can persuade Ryan – The Beast – Eastman to donate some time at one of the Saturday games.
    Perhaps other football & basketball players as well as members of Na Wahine volleyball & basketball teams could also show up to show their support for Da Sista Winnas.

  205. Ralph April 22, 2010 12:04 am

    people came to watch Brooke pitch, like I stated, win and play quality ball and the fans will show up. with an enclosed stadium, play like we are now and continue it year after year, win the WAC more often than we have been, then fans will continue to come out regularly. So I hope this season is not one and done, we don’t have to hit as many homers, but we got to keep winning period.

    Majam boomers are bringing people out, lots of publicity, and the team is doing very well. Same thing happened last season with Kolten, win and have a rising star the fans came out to take a peep. If they like the product, they keep coming out. That’s why UH bb attendance is up this season even with a 19-18 record. If they flop again in the WAC, next year might be a different scenario.


  206. Ralph April 22, 2010 12:10 am

    the plastic jars has to be humongous, we are not collecting loose change. Dollar bills take up space, a jar full may not hold a lot of individual bills and I don’t think it is a good idea for anyone holding the jar to open it to make space, got to be transparent with other people’s money.

    Ralph – the jars are sealed with bright red tape – and any donation is welcome – not just bills. We had a penny drive last year and collected nearly 100,000 of them in about ten days. I’m currently administering a PLANT A NATIVE TREE Fund Drive and have collected about $60 an hour at four community events similar to the big Earth Day celebration at UH. Total hours so far – about 16 hours

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

You clearly have a concrete grasp of the areas all of us are searching for on this blog anyways and you could possibly even earn a dollar or three from some ads. I would explore following recent topics and increasing the number of blog posts you put up and I guarantee you’d begin seeing some easy traffic in the near future. Just a thought, good luck regardless!
