My version of the Manoa Roofing Co.

Been one of those days where I run into people unexpectedly. Someone at Ho’omaluhia, Safeway, Great Harvest .. and now I have Sean Carney and Tony Ching on my roof inspecting for wind and hail damage.

I was expecting Sean but not Tony. They are working for Roofworks Hawaii

    Cool but what everyone wants to know is what is going on with the blogs and why is everyone having problems with them ? Even blogs who usually had high traffic have become ghost towns.

    Don’t they tell their bloggers when they are having web site problems ? Better still don’t the bloggers ask questions ?

  2. Cindy Luis November 27, 2013 5:06 pm

    1. Don’t know.
    2. They haven’t
    3. Yes, we do.

    Unrelated but does anyone know the top 20 kill leaders for hawaii. I know the record book has the top ten, but I remember reading on here someone posted the top 20. And does anyone know where emily is at right now?

  4. roofer68 November 27, 2013 5:52 pm

    NCAA stats site has Emily at kills per set 11th 4.56 and pts per set 14th 5.11.

  5. Cindy Luis November 27, 2013 6:05 pm

    But if I had to guess … we are having huge press runs (yesterday and today) because of all the ad inserts being printed for Thursday’s editiion. those ads will be uploaded to the server as well.
    could be why it’s so slow.

    3. Ann’s story Sunday had her moving past Tita Ahuna. I forget what place. 9th maybe

    Good news for Hawaii as SDSU defeats Colorado State in 5. This eliminates another team on the bubble for a seed. I feel pretty strongly that as long as we take of business this weekend they will host next week.

  8. mauna November 27, 2013 8:01 pm

    7. thanks vbfan. Their undefeated record was a fluke anyways, play a good SDSU team and get beat. Reserved my seat for the 1st/2nd round today, had problems trying to complete the payment part and had to call the UH ticket office to enter my visa. It’s a flaw in their processing system, was told many had that problem and called in.

  9. Warriorfan November 27, 2013 9:03 pm

    I wonder why Waber didn’t even play?

    I saw Kan play again, boy I hope she is homesick and transfers to UH next season, she passes nails plus her and Higgins have a good connection. Did UH not recruit her??

  10. rayson November 27, 2013 9:29 pm

    Are the Wahine flying back after the matches our are they going to wait it out on the mainland until they know for sure that they’re hosting?

  11. Cindy Luis November 27, 2013 9:34 pm

    10. as mentioned last week, team flies back. will be watching selection show at the SSC

  12. roofer68 November 27, 2013 9:35 pm

    3.Brandon. Cindy’s right on, Emily’s 9th in career kills with 1,420, passed Ahuna with 1,411 and Crawford is 8th with 1,467. You can find all Wahine info in the 2013 media guide on the UHAthletics web and click on the guide at the right.

    Re: 7 & 8 … SDSU and Colorado St were 2012 MW co-champions, and the preseason coaches poll had SDSU and Colorado St first and second again. Colorado St lived up to its end of the hype, winning the MW conf. with a 18-1 record. SDSU never showed up (except for this season-ending match), ending 11-8 in the middle of the MW pack standings. But Vbfan is right: with a #20 RPI and a season-ending loss, the AQ Rams “bubble” for a seed is now popped.

    Congrats also to NMSU, which turned around its ship and just won its second-straight WAC Championship tournament title. That Aggies victory should help the Bows RPI.

    Would be interesting to see either — or both — of these AQ teams at the Hawai’i regional.

    As it’s very likely Hawai’i will face a Pac-12 opponent in the NCAA Championship tournament, here’s the PAC-12 Conference’s Final Standings:

    1/ Washington [17-2 conference, 25-2 overall, #3 RPI]
    2/ Stanford [16-3, 23-5, #7]
    3/ USC [15-4, 25-5, #6]
    4/ Oregon [11-8, 18-11, #25]
    5/ California [10-9, 17-11, #30]
    6/ Arizona [9-10, 19-12, #24]
    —– “bubble” teams below —-
    6/ Colorado [9-10, 17-12, #54]
    8/ Utah [8-11, 19-12, #26]
    8/ Arizona St [8-11, 19-12, #48]
    10/ UCLA [6-13, 15-13, #42]
    —– “no chance” teams below —–
    11/ Washington St [5-14 conf.]
    12/ Oregon St [0-19 conf.]

    Note 1: Above RPI is of Nov 25. The last regular-season RPI will be released on Dec 2, but the Volleyball Committee will have access to this last regular-season RPI before Selection Sunday (Dec 1).

    Note 2: USC cooked UCLA’s goose/turkey, 3-0 (25-22, 25-11, 25-13) today (Nov 27). UCLA’s loss will not help — and will probably hurt — UH’s #11 RPI.

    Note 3: Pac- 12 had a contingent of 7 teams in last year’s NCAA tournament. I see 7 again this year.

    Re 13: Hawai’i regional = Hawaii subregional

    Speaking of which, anyone feeling geeky? Try taking my trivia quiz, which I promise you won’t help you to ace your final exams.

    Q1: We all know who the 2013 regional hosts are: Illinois, Kentucky, Nebraska, and Southern California. From 2003 to 2013 (yes, including this year) how many times has the Trojans been chosen the regional site?

    A1: _______ (hint: at least once, 2003)

    [Note: I ask this question since it will come as no surprise to anyone if Hawai’i is placed in the Southern California regional.]

    Q2: From 2003 to 2013, how many times has Hawai’i been awarded the regional host position?

    A2: _______ (hint: at least once, 2003)

    Q3: From 2003 to 2013, name either of two (2) D1 Women’s Volleyball schools winning the most Regional host bids and any of three (3) schools winning the second-most Regional host bids.

    A3: Most = ________
    A3: Runner-up = ________

  15. Brandon November 27, 2013 11:00 pm

    11. Diana Jessie, 1,266
    12. Karrie Trieschman, 1,232
    13. Jessica Sudduth, 1,220
    14. Kenyatta Lovelace, 1,189
    15. Majo Gustin, 1,111
    16. Kori Pulaski, 1,082
    17. Aneli Cubi-Otineru, 1027

    These are the other players to reach 1000 beside hartong. I beleive prince was close with over 800 and only doing that in 2 seasons

    Re: 13
    Obviously it’s not the “Final” Pac-12 Conference Standings as each has a final match on Friday (mostly cross-town rivals, such as Arizona vs Arizona St, Washington vs Washington St, etc) but you get the drift. BTW: Last year we blamed California for UH’s dropping RPI. This year we can blame UCLA, and (yipes!) UCLA can still add another loss to its season!

    Re: 14
    Why did I start with 2003? In 2003, the NCAA D1 Women’s Volleyball Committee announced its first-ever PREDETERMINED regional hosts: Florida, Hawai’i, Long Beach State, and Nebraska. (Yes, back in the day, women’s volleyball on the West Coast did not mean solely Pac-12 teams.)

    Besides the UH matches, there are two other matches I’ll be following (both on Friday): Seed 1 Marquette vs Seed 2 Creighton (if both win the previous day’s match) for the Big East Conference Championship & AQ …. LBSU vs UCSB

    50% off all available tickets to this Saturday’s game against Army … The heartbreak kids really deserve a W so let’s all go out and support the Warriors — especially the Seniors on the team! — in their season-ending game!

    personally, i think colorado st may have technically been on the bubble for a seed because of their rpi … realistically, i do not think they would have gotten one, even before their loss to sdsu this past week. colorado st did not play anyone in the top 25 of the rpi. that’s not something that would propel them to a seed.
