    Cole McDonald runs an “unofficial” 4.54 40yd., whatever that means.

    Saw another chart:

    1. Steven Montez – 4.57

    2. Jalen Hurts – 4.59

    3. Cole McDonald – 4.60

    Nice going, Cole.

    how’d he throw? We all know he’s athletic.

  7. NorthShoreFan February 28, 2020 9:43 am

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Cole in a Niner uni. Another 808 connection would be nice.
    Yes, How did he throw?

    Vandy 5-1 over BaseBows.

    I really hope graham can improve the defense overall on a consistent basis. I think the offense will be a little more physical but not in a stagnant chow way.

  14. Whitey February 28, 2020 8:54 pm

    Ai eeeee sooos. Salamat po. Can’t wait till spring ball and summer camp. The Warriors will bring excitement and generate a new interest in them. GO WARRIORS.

    North Shore Fan – JJ coaching the Houston Renegades in XFL. Check your listings if interested.

    I’m seeing folks on Youtube calling Cole one of the top five QBs based on the combine.

    Not sure I agree with the remarks about Tua.

    Bottom seventh: Is this our best bullpen option?

  17. cappie the $2000 dog February 29, 2020 12:25 pm

    Can’t figure out how to get SEC TV+ on my phone. Is it easy and I just suck? He got us out of the seventh with the lead still intact. That’s what you call a gutty, instead of good performance. He stranded the tying run on 3rd. I’ll be shocked if Hawaii adds an insurance run, so it’s all on the bullpen. C’mon, Coach Trapasso, make the right decisions.

  18. cappie the $2000 dog February 29, 2020 12:45 pm

    The set-up man stranded the runner on third. Nice job of picking up his catcher, whose throwing error on a stolen-base attempt put the tying run there. Hawaii got the moral yesterday. Here they are in the same situation as last Sunday. They were mad. Hopefully, they’re playing with a little chip on their collective shoulder.

  19. cappie the $2000 dog February 29, 2020 12:52 pm

    Holy cow. An insurance run. It’ll make the ninth-inning collapse all the more painful now.

  20. cappie the $2000 dog February 29, 2020 12:58 pm


    The tension builds.

  21. cappie the $2000 dog February 29, 2020 1:01 pm

    Carter Loewen.

    We have a closer.

    Like “Glengarry Glenn Ross”.

    Congratulations Coach Trappaso and team!

  22. NorthShoreFan February 29, 2020 3:15 pm

    DPK… Been watching JJ, Norm Chow, OC for LA and today, Jordan Ta’amu with the St Louis team.
    I like the XFL format and have been watching the games. Lot of former NFL players. Some Hawaii boyz on the rosters.
    Games are quicker.

  23. Da Punchbowl Kid February 29, 2020 3:32 pm

    North Shore Fan – I agree!

    Guud for the Bows! Big upset!

  24. H-Man March 1, 2020 12:30 pm

    Cole a top 5 QB. OK. Tua not a top 5 QB, no way.

  25. HHT March 2, 2020 12:53 pm

    Can’t even believe this guy said Cole is a top 5 QB and Tua isn’t ^^ Got to be the dumbest take of the year

  26. H-Man March 18, 2020 3:58 am

    This article is stale. Can we get a newer topic? Some suggestions; latest QB addition, status on spring ball.
