    I wonder if the recruits caught a glimpse of grad ceremonies? We do it right at Manoa.

    See the camaraderie and “da all pau afta parties”.

    Witness the ohana.

    Re: prior day’s post 21. Norm was released on Nov. 1 and Nick was named coach on Nov. 27, 2015.
    For men’s basketball, a search committee was named on April 2, 2015. On April 9, Ganot was named HC. The previous season had ended on March 14. Hiring can be pretty fast at UH too.
    Rumor, 2 coaches may be leaving, for better conferences, IF true, us fans should be thankful for the coaches we had, depending on who replaces them,

    Congrats to all of the graduates!! The hard work begins, now, but I’m sure you are all prepared and ready.

    Oregon looks like they don’t want to be there playing against Boise State in the LV Bowl. BSU just scored on a pick-6 (24-0). Boyd Stadium is only 32,000 or so, but it looks good on TV when it’s full to capacity. Announcers have been praising BSU’s OC Zak Hill.

    Congrats to the Graduates.

    You’ve worked hard to achieve this goal.

    Wishing you the best in all that you do.

    #5. islandman … “Rumor, 2 coaches may be leaving, for better conferences,

    IF true, us fans should be thankful for the coaches we had, depending on who replaces them,

    If they are leaving for better conferences, my guess is 1 each from off & def, based on bio.

    Too bad Tuiasoa isn’t coming back another year. Would’ve been great to see him in the number one spot at running back.

    38-21 Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl, 4th quarter. 4:22 left remaining.

    RISE OF THE RAINBOW WARRIORS, by Dick Tomey and Lance Tominaga, copyright 2017, in B & N store at Ala Moana shopping mall. pg 38, this was in 1983. Anyone know if he looked age 27? #66 Hawai’i jersey. Senior walk or last home game of their career. OUT of the KIF. Not Rich Miano.

  12. KOH I NOR December 16, 2017 2:10 pm

    I thought they were a freaky group of politicians. Out of the Kaua’i, KIF. This to be so still yet, even today. Just this group. No one else care about your politics.

  13. KOH I NOR December 16, 2017 2:16 pm

    see allie, on Honolulu starAdvertiser blog comments. I am not sure if she is for UH football or sports. allie has repeatedly opposed the UH athletics and football many times on her comments.

    Congratulations and Best wishes to all the Seniors as they move on with their lives. As for those who return, particularly Dru Brown (and even the coaching staff) I have some words of encouragement from a who guy who has learned to flourish under pressure. ” Find your zone and stay f***** locked in. Just be aggressive every single day. It’s (the unwarranted criticism and sass) white noise to you. That’s all it is. Alright? LET’S GO!” ………..You guys can do it.

    O-line? What about Mililani’s Noah Williams? Last I heard, he didn’t have any offers. What I did watchof him, I didn’t see any sacks allowed by him. Didn’t his father play for UH?
