Homecoming, key matchup

>> Great turnout of former players for UH football homecoming tonight.

>> One of the most popular figures in the program’s history, Nick Rolovich, still gets excited about Aloha Stadium … even as offensive coordinator of the opposing team. Got to chat with him a few minutes before the game.

“The main thing I’m concerned about is getting a win here,” he said. “But, yes, coming through that tunnel is still a great feeling.”

>> Tonight’s key matchup could be the Nevada offensive line against the UH defensive line. This looks like an advantage for the Rainbow Warriors in experience and skill; two years ago when UH did not have NT Moses Samia due to injury, Nevada ran all over Hawaii in a 69-24 win.

>> People keep asking me why Nevada is only favored by 2 1/2 points. The only answers I come up with are that Hawaii’s defense and special teams are pretty good, and Vegas loves UH at home.

    Sorry to see another loss. Better luck next week. Go Bows!

    UH was taken out behind the woodshed in the second half tonight.

    Even a “vision impaired” person can tell you that our football team S-U-X. Athletic Director Ben Jay should be embarrassed, like I am, of this product that we are fielding on Saturday nights @ Aloha Stadium. Our players cannot block, tackle, run, catch, or throw. Our opponents have players who can block, tackle, run, catch, and throw which is why they win. Our opponents have coaches (i.e. Nevada Offensive Coordinator & former Warrior Nick Rolovich) who out coach their counter-parts (Hawaii Defensive Coordinator Kevin Clune). This is the last game I will attend until such time either a coaching change has been made or Coach Chow and his assistants can recruit or coach players to block, tackle, run, catch, and throw and show it on a Saturday night @ Aloha Stadium. I “took” pride in being a Warrior fan but what I’m seeing on the field is like having a loved one die a slow death in front of you. Ben Jay is asking the Rainbow Warrior faithful to donate money to the Athletic Department. The only money I will donate is if there is a fund to BUY OUT NORM CHOW’S CONTRACT. Teams are supposed to improve as the season progresses…this one has regressed since the Washington game. Yes we can’t afford a “big name” coach so I think we should give a young up and coming first timer a chance. He would have to know about Hawaii, how to recruit the local kids, and be willing as a first time HC to work at a “lesser amount” and prove himself.

    if what was posted on here earlier this week..then it should be investigated by ‘ne reporter’ to see if those statement were true…and correct..

    me speak about the two starters that are ‘banned’ from the center.. n if what was said to a coach…’f..k you..or to that effect….

    that maybe the biggest ‘cancer’ of the team…

    bullying n not showing respect to coaches….not good..

    the team is demoralized at this point…n it shows in their play…
