Warrior Beat: Business trip

UH offensive lineman 6-foot, 6 inch Micah Vanterpool coached a New Jersey Pop Warner player at Rainbow Warriors practice Wednesday. Pop Warner players gave up their practice field to the 'Bows who reciprocated by giving lessons. / Photo by Ferd Lewis

PARK RIDGE, N.J. >> This really is a business trip.

The UH athletic department is hosting 15 corporate sponsors for the road game against Army. Each year, UH hosts a group of sponsors on a football trip that strengthens the bond between the athletic department and corporate sector.

One of the events includes attending tonight’s baseball game at Yankee Stadium.

The Warriors concluded field preparation for tomorrow’s game with today’s practice at Saint Joseph’s Regional High School.

    Go ‘Bows!

  2. wafan September 14, 2018 9:23 am

    Good afternoon, Mr. Tsai.

  3. wafan September 14, 2018 9:27 am

    A bit under 21 hours to go.

  4. haka September 14, 2018 9:28 am

    Big game to win over a lot of people.
    The Warriors will play their best game!
    Go Warriors!

  5. wafan September 14, 2018 9:29 am

    It is difficult to see the detail in those small photos.

  6. Da Punchbowl Kid September 14, 2018 11:20 am

    Good morning, haka and wafan!

    Yes indeed, this is a big, big game. This game will be crucible for our Warriors. One snap at a time, they must be excellent. They will play, win and be the better for it!


  7. alnbama September 14, 2018 11:20 am

    Just win Warriors!

  8. H-Man September 14, 2018 11:21 am

    My previous prediction was Hawaii 34 Army 31, I change to

    Hawaii 41 Army 31

  9. NorthShoreFan September 14, 2018 11:22 am

    That third pic on yesterdays post looked like some Army spies check out our practice…No?


  10. suckkabooya September 14, 2018 11:37 am


    Yes. Lori Santi is awesome. She gives excellent analysis and sets up others well, real smooth……. And Dave Shoji was good when the UH Softball team went to the Softball World Series. I think with some preparation he could do any sport too. Both of them under rated (or unrated in Shoji’s case). They have a good eye for analyzing strategy. Gifted.

  11. Boolakanaka September 14, 2018 11:37 am

    Bows 42 Army 28

  12. NotNasti September 14, 2018 11:44 am

    I enjoyed Dick Tomey as football color analyst. He would predict the play (accurately) based on formation, down/distance, etc., before it was run. Very informative.

  13. suckkabooya September 14, 2018 11:54 am

    You should be able to make a direct comparison to the bottom tier (40th percentile I would estimate) of the Power 5’s because this game is on the road. Much easier to compare this way. It does help that Colorado St. beat Arkansas and UH beat Colorado St. on the road. So many potential viewers for this “prime time” game so I hope UH brings their “A” game. Important. For both now and the future. The whole of the National College Football fan base is asking “is Hawaii for real?” (especially ESPN). We about to show the them. GO WARRIORS!!

  14. turfwar September 14, 2018 12:01 pm

    Cappie count me on the Santi bandwagon. She is way under utilized. I’m convinced she can call any sport and not just add to the broadcast but be really enjoyable to listen to. She’s knowledgeable, fair and like the best she knows when to talk and when to allow the game to unfold.

  15. bg September 14, 2018 12:15 pm

    Howzit folks! Nice to see you on-board, wafan.

    Although I am an Army retiree, let me make it absolutely clear who I am cheering for tomorrow morning. May Ke Akua bless the Army ohana, but I’ve fulfilled my duty. I’ve have been a Warrior fan(atic) and Tsaiko most passionately and will never be anything less. I know there’s a Tsaiko section in the Heavenly stadium. Hooah! Pumping it up for tomorrow! 😉

    NSF, the geese are just carrying the spy-cams, not their fault.

  17. PONO September 14, 2018 12:30 pm

    Go Bows! It’s going to be tough for the internal clocks of the players to play at 6am HST. At least one positive it’s the same time as their morning practices. Hoping to see another dynamic performance by the offense and a hard hitting turnover causing defense. With an offense like ours it gives Batoon some leeway to take risks and play more aggressive.

  18. kalua pig September 14, 2018 12:53 pm

    i vote for lori santi. she is the best one i like.

  19. Petey808 September 14, 2018 1:14 pm

    Warriors 56 Army 35

  20. NotNasti September 14, 2018 1:40 pm

    I agree on Lori Santi. She is could take her talent to a national stage, if she so desired.

  21. Savich September 14, 2018 1:48 pm

    I didn’t know. Petey. Was a show name. High school football game.

    Alabama. Ok.

  22. Savich September 14, 2018 1:54 pm

    Do they cook for them? If so, what time do they eat? SSC. VIP

  23. Savich September 14, 2018 2:00 pm

    Go Bows. 1979 Wyoming vs. Hawai’i, Dick Tomey. The big game. Read this one.

  24. Chicken Grease September 14, 2018 2:07 pm

    Would be neat if Hawaii came out in this game with the ALL BLACK, take the unsportman penalty . . . and then for sure go on to CRUSH Army.

    Appearance maketh the man.

  25. Chicken Grease September 14, 2018 2:11 pm

    Speaking of St. Joseph, I remember taking St. Joseph’s aspirin when getting sick as a kid. Take a day off from school (not too many days. You fon’t wanna take more than one day). Ma make you soup and soda crackers and butter. Fruit punch, which—for some reason—would taste much better than fruit punch drinking when healthy.

  26. Savich September 14, 2018 2:16 pm

    Lori Santi. Clear. Hired. Ok. I can see why the hire. Not saying anything.

  27. kalua pig September 14, 2018 2:17 pm

    rolo played a no rice diet joke on the team last week.hope the team is eating rice on the east coast.

  28. Savich September 14, 2018 3:59 pm

    Too spiritual. Waimea high school. I didn’t know they knew who I was. Keep at it. Because only me in the election.

    Nothing. Politics. Voting too. 1 vote for me. Get my voice heard. But I vote for someone like an Islander player. I saw them play. Really good. But I paid nothing for the tickets, so no count yet. Next to UH baseball, I think discount. Free tickets. That’s me.

  29. Savich September 14, 2018 4:11 pm

    What’s your point? I called the guy a Failure? Politics.

  30. Savich September 14, 2018 4:12 pm

    I didn’t know they liked school. P ff

  31. Chicken Grease September 14, 2018 4:13 pm

    Savich, are you talking to self?

    To what or whom are you referring? Help is out here.


  32. NotNasti September 14, 2018 4:14 pm

    How do you have a conversation with yourself on a blog? See above.

  33. Savich September 14, 2018 4:15 pm

    Army. HAWAI’I. Army has the edge only because they got credit as tough guys. Hawai’i got no credit. Army has the edge. Rule book. Everyone

  34. Savich September 14, 2018 4:16 pm

    The guy. Sorry.

  35. Savich September 14, 2018 4:18 pm

    Cannot remember. But baseball islanders was good or better. UH sucks. That good.

  36. A Warrior fan September 14, 2018 4:39 pm

    Savich,Stop hogging this blog

  37. Chicken Grease September 14, 2018 4:46 pm

    September 14, 2018 4:16 pm

    The guy. Sorry.

    Don’t be sorry. We just wanna help, heh. 🤪

    On a side note, gang, I have been bragging to folks all day at work that I have ch. 1247 CBS sports network and that I have a breakfast feast at the ready and that Idon’t have to wake up early to go ANYWHERE to watch the game. Just cook up the fat, grease (pardon THAT pun), eggs, rice, crispy up some chocolate crescānts, pour the POG on ice and cheer on Warriors.

    6am on Saturday. Too early to get out of boro boro clothes to drive to watch a 6am game. Thank you.

  38. A View From Afar September 14, 2018 5:27 pm

    UH 49 – Army 35

  39. Mytake September 14, 2018 5:34 pm

    I’m worried the D line and LB’S will be pushed around. If that happens, it’ll be painful to watch.

  40. snowmantoo September 14, 2018 5:50 pm

    Mytake, no worry brah………D line and LB’s will not be pushed around. They’ll be doing the pushing.
    UH: 49 Army 21. You can take that to the bank! Go get ’em boys……….

  41. Chicken Grease September 14, 2018 6:31 pm

    September 14, 2018 5:50 pm

    UH: 49 Army 21. You can take that to the bank! Go get ’em boys……….

    I have Hawaii winning as well, snowmantoo! But I believe I WILL take your prediction to the proverbial bank! I like it! Sounds right.

  42. tom-warriornation September 14, 2018 6:33 pm


    For those attending the Army game tomorrow; there is a Hawaii tailgate:

    Savich, please, we want to underatand you. Explain simply what you arr getting at. Just use ONE comment post to do it.

    Gather your thoughts, firstly.

    Thank you.

  45. dreamcitymike September 14, 2018 9:32 pm

    Hawaii to continue steady upward trend in winning all three phases of contest…last week was their worst game on ST play …defense won’t be pushed around I expect to the contrary, dive play will be squashed, perimeter well defended, back end needs to be keying on the pass downfield! Of course, offense will keep getting sharper & crisp …black knights can’t hang with the RnS! UH 56 ARMY 31

    I played high school football, but failed my junior and tossed out. Still lifting weights today.

    Ready for the game.

  60. Idunnonuttin September 15, 2018 3:06 am

    Jalani Tavai has huge biceps. #31. If he gets going, it could be a good day. I would think people are entering the stadium now. 38,000 seats. It should sell out.

  61. Idunnonuttin September 15, 2018 3:25 am

    Zippy’s chilli. Mmm…ono/white rice. I’ll have to wait. Almost pre-game show.
