    So much turnover from last year to now, has me a bit worried I must say.

    Normally I’d be wary of how many walk-on’s we’re taking on as a program, a usual sign of not having enough scholarship talent to fill your needs…but UH has a long tradition of developing these types of young men who didn’t get much attention elsewhere. Here’s to hoping that continues.

    Also, first?

  2. A-House July 3, 2018 7:24 am

    yes, coaches — keep filling the “pot” and soon you will have a fantastic stone soup!

    Cabral reminds me of another DB from Waianae — Leonard Peters!

    hot dog! how many vehicles must I verify???????

  4. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2018 8:21 am

    Did the DMV take over the blog’s certification?

  5. shadow July 3, 2018 8:22 am

    Leonard Peters was from Kahuku.

  6. clyde July 3, 2018 8:32 am

    Perhaps A-House meant Nate Jackson?

  7. Bows1055 July 3, 2018 8:32 am

    I think he meant Nate Jackson

  8. A-House July 3, 2018 9:02 am

    excuse me and thank you guys are correct — it’s Nate the Great as he was called in our household

    i need to take Pravagen ( sp) to increase my brain capacity!

    the TV crew holds its press conference directly below our seats/section and we always see Leonard Peters who is really BUFF!!! believe he plays rugby to stay in shape.

    One year there were only 2 returning starters on defense. I kept thinking “who are these new starters, are they any good? David Maeva? Mike Tresler? Don’t know if they can handle.” Sometimes it’s better to start fresh. We find out in… how many days? Not good at math, I only have 4 hooves to count with.

  10. DaveLetterMan July 3, 2018 9:28 am

    Morning Tsaikos!
    Think the new rule on the 25 initial scholarships changes how late additions are brought on board. Think even if there’s scholarships to give out, the late additional incoming athletes have to walk on first. ST, correct me if I’m wrong.
    Have a great day!

  11. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2018 9:55 am

    There is flexibility — and complexity — in how things are done now.
    Things will be much clearer as the season nears.

  12. burro sabio July 3, 2018 10:04 am

    ST keeps everyone hanging on edge haha.

  13. A-House July 3, 2018 10:35 am

    ST & DLM:

    are you guys saying that the FIXED RULE of 25 football scholarships have been tampered with making it more favorable to the Power 5 as does the new transfer rule?

    does the transferring player have to abide by the conference rule and NCAA rule? much like the Federal vs. the states? states legalize pakalolo, but the Feds say it’s still illegal?

    me tinks too many lawyers in our Congress just “mutters” [ not you Dave ] our thinking — much like our immigration issue(s) at our southern border — would be nice to see all the children separated from their parent(s) be reunited ASAP!! then, they can celebrate our 4th of July!

  14. Inyoface July 3, 2018 11:46 am

    Anyone know the football fall practice schedule?

  15. Maddog50 July 3, 2018 12:20 pm

    I will take overall a clean house as far as it stands now. New starters new coaches and guys given walk on opportunity. Not worried at all. Rid yourself of bad acts, disgruntled attitudes and those who have loyalty elsewhere. Very excited about fresh start players and coaches. And yes there is more to come as we get closer to pre-season camp. GoWarriors!

    Howzit Everybody,

    Just real happy to see the local walk-ons come back in full force. Hopefully Rolo can continue this trend and bring back the real pride in the program. Kids that will truly bleed and give everything they have for this program.

    I feel real good about how this program is now being built. We are in year 3 but better late than never.

    All we need is some wins to continue the momentum.

    Go Warriors

  17. A-House July 3, 2018 1:00 pm


    nice to see you represent!

    long time no see — actually, good to see more and more old time Tsaikos posting again!

  18. Walter Matsuoka July 3, 2018 1:03 pm

    Hope he can hit & play like Nate did … what a WARRIOR that guy was … all HEART … !!!!!


  19. A-House July 3, 2018 1:16 pm

    on this Independence Day eve — a tribute to Tsaikos who have left us, but sitting up high to cheer with us:

    Florida Ted — UH Football Fan — Ragsu Bagasu — Big Hilo Fan — Calvin from Kona — Annoddah Dave — Curve Ball — Hawaiian Bod — Betty Hiraki — Kuulei Aloha — Tom ( Rob25 friend) — Ukulele boy ( Liz Kauai son )

    if I missed someone, apologies!

  20. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2018 3:12 pm

    First practice is July 27.
    Not sure if that practice, or any, will be open to the public.

  21. Bran July 3, 2018 4:00 pm

    Did the MW have media days yet and if so which athletes represented UH? I have a feeling not yet otherwise I would see Coach Rolo doing something crazy and trending online or on ESPN.

  22. Da Punchbowl Kid July 3, 2018 5:08 pm

    Welcome Tony! Just geev ‘um!

    Go Warriors!!!

    Not bot!

  23. SteveM July 3, 2018 7:11 pm

    I’m seeing a lot of original Tsai-kos from the first year of the blog checking in and have to post too!

    A-House, it was “Long Time UH fan” after FloridaTed in your list. Many of those Tsai-kos are listed In Memorium at the bottom of the Hall of Fame page…

  24. suckkabooya July 4, 2018 3:18 am

    Bandwagon fans come and go but the true UH fans “go” only when it’s “their time”. God Bless all those Tsaiko’s who have passed.

  25. azwarrior22 July 4, 2018 5:42 am

    Me likey incentives for reduced costs of attendance for UH alumni…now if they can reduce airfares, it would be golden 🙂

  26. cappie the dog July 4, 2018 6:17 am

    Generation X is the last generation to care about Hawaii athletics.

    We remember the world before the Internet.

    The Internet is what prevents a new infusion of future UH sports zealots.


    Phil Lott was a senior.

    “Smells Like Teen Spirit” ruled the airwaves.

  27. islandman July 4, 2018 8:10 am

    Good preview of UH basketball in today’s paper and also about UH trying to appeal to the younger people to improve attendance at sports events.
    As regards to the basketball team APR being 900 in 2014-15, it went even lower in 2015-16 to 886, due to a couple players not finishing up their semesters after the NCAA tournament run. Also, the 2014-15 rating was affected by i think one player leaving UH because he was sanctioned by the NCAA.

  28. A-House July 4, 2018 8:49 am

    like many, if not most, money seeking entities, UH forgets, nearly if not most, of the “loyal” supporters to football with NO incentive to keep purchasing season tickets — they constantly target “new” fans or buyers which important — like Matlin said, most are the older generation.

    yes, it’s important to seek student attendance, but unless you are in the Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, and other Power 5 schools wherein multiple sections are set aside for thousands of students — it was most impressive at Michigan where they set aside 4 or 5 entire sections, maybe 20,000 seats, for students all wearing the same yellow t-shirt — UH will NEVER reach this level of support because leadership is lacking by always staying inside the “comfort box” — why should I give any suggestions? because they don’t listen or simply wipe away our recommendations like Ben Jay did when we had a Tsaiko special meeting with him

    what,if anything, is the UHAD proposing about filling all the empty seats in the “yellow” sections at Aloha Stadium? anyone heard or seen any solid proposals? Marcus Mariota, last year, did buy 1,000 tickets in the south end zone for youngsters for the Boys and Girls Club — rather, Matlin closed the entire yellow upper decks for 2017 because it was too expensive to pay for security and clean up

    ok, open the yellow section between the 20 yard lines — seats cost $5 each — first come, first serve — open to anyone who wants to buy special admission tickets for mauka/makai sections — NO ALCOHOL SOLD OR CONSUMED in these sections!!!! to ease purchase, allow individuals to purchase online or call UH ticket office for “assigned” seats

    if these are sold out regularly, open the rest of all yellow sections for $5 per seat and those between the 20 yard lines now sell for $6 each.

    on campus during the early 1960s, our group of 250-300 students was the largest student section at football games at Termite Palace between 1960 – 64.

  29. burro sabio July 4, 2018 9:22 am

    Why not just lower ticket prices for everyone? No one in UHAD has ever understood economics and they never bothered to ask Bob Wagner or JJ.

  30. islandman July 4, 2018 9:48 am

    SDSU is winning nowadays, but had almost 8,000 students at a game vs Stanford and maybe 6,000 for a game vs Northern Illinois last season. However, the national trend is down for student attendance.

  31. idunnonuttin July 4, 2018 9:54 am

    does UH make money off of the alcohol sales at Aloha Stadium? that’s a lot of money right there.

  32. H-Man July 4, 2018 10:00 am

    Even if the team turns the corner with consecutive winning seasons, it will take a whole new generation of fans and conditions to reach the 30K+ fans/game average. Rebuilding the fan base will take years, if at all, with PPV as an option, coupled with traffic and parking congestion; poor concessions; and anything else as a reason not to attend a game. And forget the students. They will never attend the games en masse at an off-campus site because security/police will not allow them to get stupid drunk. Now if the stadium was on campus, then I’m sure the drinking restrictions would be relaxed and….
