Split squads

Today was D-Day — division day — for the Warriors.

For the 16th pre-season practice, the Warriors divided into top units and scouts. In simulating UMass’ schemes, the scouts also wore the jersey numbers of the Minutemen they will portray.

The Warriors also practiced in the white helmets they will use for the UMass game. It was a test run to ensure the helmet’s fit. The Warriors are expected to break out the new green helmets for the home opener against Western Carolina.

    somewhere I saw that UH is favored by 1 point — good or bad sign?

    maybe good as local stations will broadcast game live and we not going to be on national TV.

    for the first time in 3 or 4 years, we will not see you at a UH tailgate in 2017.

    UMass will be our only travel game this year.

    get chance in 2017 – 12 & O coated with ‘sugar’ would be grand!!!!!!!!!

    I am still sulking about by 9 year old iMac obsolescence, software obsolescence, and me obsolescence. But I did order a new iMac and will get back with Tsai-ko web updates once I figure out how to use all the new software versions. 🙁

    Meanwhile, although not updated for 6 days, the listing of Tsai-ko Road game attendees and resources/activities is still available for your info…

    Kraftwerk really sound like robots in “The Robots”. I first heard this song at Aliamanu Elementary’s summer school program.

    My mother really wasted her money.

    All we did was listen to music.

  21. cappie the dog August 17, 2017 6:59 am

    I mean Aliiolani.

    Kaimuki Cue, Harry’s Music Store(the ugly, I mean, beautiful green building), Church’s Chicken.

    Pac-Man, Ms. Pac Man(Pac Man in drag), Dig Dug.

    Second-hand smoke. The grouchy man behind the window when the coin-changer wouldn’t work.

    God knows what those guys were doing in the back.

    Apologies to Aliamanu.

    what’s with the new format?

    I’m not a robot is a stepping stone to securing a person’s driving abstract — BUMMERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. ahouse August 17, 2017 7:27 am

    trail and error to submit a post — no instructions?

    is this a means to get certain individuals not to post any more??????????

    Mahalo for the link DLM. Sending prayers to Ivan and family.

    seems UMass will be “up” for 1st game and vividly recall the blocked FG in 2016.

    hopefully, the DBs will not allow long pass plays – reminds me of the 49ers whose DBs leave a lot to be desired the past 4 seasons.

    Allen Hicks joined the Warriors as a walk on. Is he now on scholarship? He definitely in the rotation for the secondary. Nice article this morning.

  30. Derek August 17, 2017 9:56 am

    My bad, SB Kalen Hicks.
