Warrior Beat: Cooling-off period

The sprinklers provided refreshing relief for the Warriors this morning/Photo by Stephen Tsai

Head coach Nick Rolovich knows how to have a cool time.

Following a scrimmage in training camp, Rolovich hired a shave-ice vendor to provide cool treats for players, coaches and fans.

This morning, Rolovich gave the signal to field specialist Gary Kaneshiro, who turned on the sprinklers while the players ran gassers — 55-yard, sideline-to-sideline sprints — following a 2-hour practice.

Of course, defensive end Max Hendrie found a creative way to beat the heat yesterday:

    Don’t know what’s going on in the link –

    but look for the clip about WR McCullough, who received an offer from Hawaii. Looks like he will fit in our system.

    found this link in google while searching “San Jose State Football”.

    ST: delete this link if its mucking up your blog.

    found this in MWC bulletin:

    WR/DB Ty McCullouch was offered by Hawaii
    JUCO WR Emmanuel Green was offered by Hawaii
    JUCO WR Andrew Parchment was offered by Hawaii

    Also, Green and Parchment had visited.

    But you need to buy a SJSU game ticket; as the this free tailgate is inside the stadium.

  13. tom-warriornation September 26, 2018 7:01 pm

    I have a group of 400+ Hawaii fans sitting at the 35-50 yard line right behind our Warrior bench; some in row 9 where you can almost touch the players! AN AWESOME GAME EXPERIENCE; WE BELIEVE!

    So what will you be watching tomorrow?

    Completely unrelated, but why would Mililani QB Gabriel, who set the State passing record, commit to a college that doesn’t pass the ball? Is it purely his post football goal to join military?

  18. dreamcitymike September 26, 2018 10:49 pm

    So don’t take the opponent lightly, w-l record isn’t an indication of the expected outcome! Gotta realize the prize at the finish line! Warriors you can do it!! Live Aloha/ Play Warrior!!!

    RE: #21

    You mean that college that just beat us by passing the ball?

  20. seewhy September 27, 2018 12:09 am

    Haha, I’m just joking. But I think there’s some truth to that. I mean, all 3 military schools offered him. And he does possess the athleticism needed to run those offenses.

  21. Whats up September 27, 2018 12:30 am

    I respect SJSU, but I don’t think SJSU can beat Hawaii outright. What I’m concerned about the Hawaii Warriors letting other teams and their fans in the bleachers have hope which leads to momentum swinging.

    From what I saw this season so far this young team has moments of undisciplined lapses. They make mental errors that lead to penalties or turnovers or dropped passes or ease off when they have huge leads. Some of this was on the coaches and some of the players.

    As we know that as this young team gets more game experience, more time in the weight room, the coaches and players develop their knowledge deep into the playbook in all 3 phases of the game. And as this team keeps building experience it has the potential to get the level of the 2006-2007-2010 Hawaii Warrior Teams, maybe better.

    No doubt this young Warrior Team has swag and displayed relentless physical and mental toughness to never give up. They believe that nobody can stop them in offense and defense and it shows with a 4-1 record.

    But there is always room for more awesomeness and swag, excuse me I mean “improvement”.

    Live Aloha/Play Warrior

    Work Grind/Earn Respect/Play Swag/Go Warriors!

    #19 seewhy, you may have been joking, but you are absolutely correct. Army beat Hawaii by its passing success against Hawaii. And why Gabriel committed to Army? Fantastic facilities, great campus and education. Plus, Army assistant coach Saturnio makes it comfortable for any player from Hawaii to be at West Point. JMO.

    Hawaii being installed as a double-digit road favorite makes me queasy.

    San Jose State lost nine out of their last ten games.

    The Spartans feel good about not being blown out by Oregon.

    They are probably a relatively confident group.

    This tilt against Hawaii has the potential of being their breakout game.

    Justin Herbert stat line: 16-34 309 yds, 3 TDs 2 INTs.

    Maybe these numbers are meaningless; maybe Cole McDonald is better than Herbert.

    Maybe Hawaii is better than Oregon.

    I think it’s a safe bet that Hawaii won’t cover.

    #23 Interesting article on triple option football…

    I agree… Hawaii as a double digit favorite is never a good sign. Also Hawaii has a tendency to make other teams (San Jose State) look like All-Americans.

    Army’s option keeps your body’s weight leaning forward because they are so powerful. They will run you over if you not in “impact” posture. Navy keeps you on your heels with fakes, deception and finesse. Easier to defend Navy’s passing because your body is not as committed to making contact. A passer like Gabriel will clean up some of the “clunky-ness” of their passing game and make them so hard to prepare for. Going to be so efficient there. Add one more quarterback to NCAA”s new quarterback factory, Hawaii.

    Kev-1, because man does not live by football alone. But what do I know, I’m just a burro who happens to own a laptop.

    A degree from West Point is like having a Golden Egg in your pocket! Retiring from the Army as an Officer, and a multitude of other options after service. Unlimited potential. Smart move but hard work
