    HI ST:

    weather in our valley seems really nice from my office!

    clear skies now turning cloudy!

  2. A-House March 28, 2018 10:26 am

    although coaching staff focusing on spring ball — any movement in recruiting for 2019?

    hope Masaboy’s teammate son at St Louis will consider playing for UH.

    A House-nice weather here too! Almost 60!!!! Playing golf tomorrow-gonna be 48. Ur weather a little nicer!!!!!

    i almost misread your comment and thought, wow, shooting a 48 for 18 holes!!!

    You would establish a record that would last centuries.

    have a good one tomorrow — playing in 48 degree weather, at least for me, would be unbearable.

    Would be cool to bring back the huddle.

    wouldn’t it be nice if UH had a special play to call when the defense seems unorganized be it a run of pass depending on what the QB sees

    use a one word “code”, like IMUA, and run the quick play — defense problem if they aren’t organized.

    Did anything happen to Mel Proctor?

    RE: #6
    A-House — under the run n’ shoot most teams would guess pass fairly often. 🙂 But in the situation you describe, maybe run…

    Coach Ganot is a no excuses, “roll up your sleeves”, grinder of a coach. He has done enough to prove himself. Even though UH was under all those restrictions he has still managed to be in position to succeed. He has unfinished business here and when that is taken care of, then, he will be gone. This program hasn’t been able to get rolling on all cylinders yet but was still never out of contention. They even had a “growing pains” slump mid season but they were able to tough it out (on the road no less) and recover. He is so close. One more Tournament, THEN, he will be taken from us. Good for him. Good for us too.

    Jim Leahy and Pal Eldridge only does home games. The last time Hawai’i won the conference, playoffs, was in 1988. WAC, Big west, in baseball, & basketball. MWC in football. Jim does football too. Aloha stadium. Maybe? P.T. work again there.

    MLB fans, Angels and Albert Pujols, age 38. Needs 16 to tie 17 to pass Ken Griffey jr.’s career homeruns. He is at 614. 630 is the next milestone. Expected date to break record, sometime in July 2018. Early July. If there is no injuries. April is the opening month to start. Spring training still.

    Besides a new catch rule, the NFL has a new rule against head to head hits which they hope will carry down to the lower levels of the sport (such as college and high schools).

    There is also talk of eliminating kickoffs.

    I used to listen to Scott Galetti call football and basketball games on the radio when I was a student at the University of New Mexico. He’s as solid as they come, knowledgable and quite easily excitable — and we know baseball needs more of that. I think it’s a good move for the program.

    Mel Proctor is a legend! The voice of Hawaii Islanders AAA baseball…..

    I suspect he was “dying” of boredom.

    Baseball has lost of its luster and I don’t think there is a large radio audience anymore. All the old folks who liked to wear headset radio and do stuff have moved on.

    Instead of hiring someone to be the voice of the road bows, why not just pick up the feed from the opponents? Unless they asking for king’s ransom, I would think it would be cheaper and even more informative since that guy doing the PbP is more informed about the opponent and might be more familiar with the Bows since he call UH vs “opponents “ game before.

    Does this guy based out of New Mexico even knows about UH, what style UH plays, or even the personnel on either team???.

    No mention of the passing of Le Grande ‘Orange. RIP.

    #6….I’m not sure some coaches like to run a play if the defense is disorganzied. The problem is your offense have to be organized to catch the opponent. Defense can be disorganzied(or at least give the appearance of disorganization) at the snap of the ball. If the offense is not set and is disorganzied at the snap, they get penalized.

    RnS also prefer to let the defense get set, allowing the offense to read the defense and the use motion to get the defense out position.

    All teams probably have plays for 4 and short and if nobody line up over center….they can quick snap.

    It’s not worth the 5 yard penalty and put yourself in bad position by trying to outsmart your opponent with a special play…only to be penalized yourself by having too many men in the backfield or one of your recievers wayyyyyy outside was not set.

    The negative of those kind of play outweighs the positive.
