    Awwww…..the Wahine playing on the road. No TV coverage. Well, back to GameTracker.

    1 – this Friday’s match will be on ESPN 3! w/ replays if you miss the actual airtime.

    Hasn’t the Long Beach State match at the pyramid been on fox sports west in the past why not this year?

  4. darkfire November 3, 2015 12:48 pm

    Godspeed Wahine! May the force be with you on this month-long road trip! GO BOWS!

    Fortunately for the team, Daylight Savings Time ended at 2 a. m. on November 1st, meaning that California moved their clocks back one hour. So rather than the three hour time difference that the Wahine experienced on their first road trip, their body clock now only need two hours to adjust. This should lessen their jet lag and make for a quicker recovery. Hoping to make the CSUN game on Saturday as I live in Oceanside (hometown of Castillo). LET’S GO BOWS.

    Does anyone know if UH Wahine matches at the Pyramid draw a lot of Hawaii fans? LBSU hasn’t exactly been setting attendance records this year, so maybe we can make it a neutral court atmosphere.

    Best wishes to the team!

    As for ESPN3, if this is your first time using it, try to download the app (if you’re using a tablet) or visit the page beforehand so you can be sure you choose your TV provider and your login stuff works. A reward aside from knowing you’re set is you can watch coverage from the archives. I went back a month, and there might be even older stuff there.

    No. 5, if you got some time, had a quick question. How do you guys like the railway there?

  9. menehune November 3, 2015 6:26 pm

    nomu —

    While it can be great, the convenience of our transit system is largely dependent on the distance between your starting point and destination, and the time you seek to travel. Since everything in California tends to be pretty spread out, you can usually count on still needing to take a taxi/Uber/Lyft from the train station to your destination.

    A main thing to consider is the time of your return trip, as this is where you will encounter the most problems because many trains do not run very late into the evening.

    I would advise you to do some research on the Amtrak website, and the Los Angeles Metro website to better plan your trip and see if it will be easy or too complicated for you. There is also a Metrolink train (their website is separate from Amtrak) that runs about $10 cheaper than Amtrak but stops more frequently. Depending on where you are coming from, you would take an Amtrak or Metrolink and then transfer to a Los Angeles Metro train (which run $1.75 per ride.)

    Best of luck.

    Thanks menehune, appreciate you taking the time to respond. A while ago, we were on the freeway from LAX to Laguna Niguel, it was like 60-70 mph with everyone going bumper to bumper. The main concern would the the return time, as you mentioned, so looks like we’ll just rent a car. Thanks again. Will check out the website links.

    #6 There is usually a large wahine fan base of several hundred that will show up at most wahine matches in So. CA and especially at the Pyramid. Most will sit behind the team. We will make a lot of noise including booing the refs and of course chanting “Let’s Go Bows”. Lots of fun!

  12. Big Island VB fan November 3, 2015 9:38 pm

    Glad that this time it’s not a red-eye flight. The Wahines will need all the rest they can get before playing Long Beach. Looking forward to watching on ESPN3 online.

    Surprise! UC Riverside defeated CSUN in 5 sets!

  14. isles November 3, 2015 11:52 pm

    12. it better not be a redeye. im chastising whoever created such an itinerary before and killing the bachi here. no excuses especially by design.

  15. isles November 4, 2015 12:08 am



    “he Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights – not the NCAA – has the primary responsibility to enforce Title IX and respond to complaints.

    However, the law has not undergone major change since President Richard Nixon signed it more than 40 years ago, and neither has it been fully enforced.”

    ^i knew title ix was too weak and not worth its weight in salt!

    rise of the wahine even highlighted how collegiate sports teams struggled to implement title ix after its passing….and apparently they still struggle (ie mens football/basketball still is ‘superior’ to womens sports even if the mens games are lousy, including football/basketball taking precedence over wahine volleyball and the football percentage index converted into shoddy rpi)

    cindy, since that was from HNN and presumably you compete with them as SA you got anything to counter/rebut/remark to that linked article?

  16. menehune November 4, 2015 5:07 am

    nomu – Since the LBSU and CSUN games are on Friday and Saturday, the traffic
    on the freeways are brutal from about 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. I suggest getting on the road as early as possible to reach your destination in plenty of time and hang out in the numerous coffee shops/bars/cafes in the area till it’s time for the game, or rent a room for the night, depending on your departure time. GO BOWS.

    UC Riverside def. CSUN, 25-19, 21-25, 24-26, 25-22, 19-17

    Can we let the redeye thing go? it happened because the plane had a problem last year.
    AGAIN, it’s not like they played the day the got in.

    15. yes I do have a comment or two. First, not sure what Hawaii’s itinerary has to do with Title IX. And some of the excerpts you’ve chosen to use is what I’ve written previously, such as Title IX is a federal law.

    I guess we compete with HNN, I wouldn’t consider it competition. . we are different media. The SA ran the same story in the NEWS section because it had nothing really to do about sports. It had to do with a transgendered person who identified with being female feeling she was discriminated against when given the option to have a private space to change.

    Nixon was referring to the 1965 Civil Rights Act. Title IX is an amendment to that. Don’t really care to repeat what I’ve said during this discussion that you continually want to have so if you would care to, a good link go to:

    But to recap:
    1. Title IX is not just about sports; it is a prohibition against sex-based discrimination in education. It addresses discrimination against pregnant and parenting students and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs. It also addresses sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence. Sexual violence includes attempted or completed rape or sexual assault, as well as sexual harassment, stalking, voyeurism, exhibitionism, verbal or physical sexuality-based threats or abuse, and intimate partner violence.

    2. Title IX does not apply to female students only. Title IX protects any person from sex-based discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived sex, gender identity, and/or gender expression. Female, male, and gender non-conforming students, faculty, and staff are protected from any sex-based discrimination, harassment or violence.

    there are other items that will help clarify what Title IX is.

    Bon Voyage Na Wahine! and hoping for a very successful road trip, especially over the Beach & Mustangs…


  19. H-Man November 4, 2015 9:39 am

    Refreshing to read something other than who should be the next head football coach.

  20. Cindy Luis November 4, 2015 10:02 am

    6. in answer to the fans at away matches, yes, when the wahine come to town it usually is the biggest attendance night for the home team in part because of the large number of Hawaii fans on the mainland.
    The UH men’s team will be at the match in the Pyramid because they are in a preseason tournament in the LA area.

    new thread up just because it’s a new day.
