Warriors stay at No. 11 in poll

Not much movement. 1-4 the same: Loyola, BYU, UCLA, Pepperdine.

The Beach and UCSB swap at 5-6, SC and Stanford both move a spot, Troujans to 8, Cardinal to 9. UCI down to 7. Penn State move up 2 from 12 to 10.

    I think this is why I don’t enjoy the mens game as much. With so little teams, the polls don’t really change. Yeah it’s more competitive because anyone can beat anyone, but IMO I don’t enjoy that. I like to see dominance by certain programs and when you see an upset in the womens game it’s an upset. But in the men’s game when the 11 ranked beat the 1st ranked it’s not that much of a suprise

    The men’s game is faster, more physical with harder hitting and much more exciting than the women’s game. With so few men’s teams, each team has many players that would be their team’s stars if there were as many teams as there are women’s teams.

    The talent on the women’s squads is watered down because there are too many teams.

    2. I guess I differ. I like the a lot of teams because there is more competition and to be the best, you have to compete against a lot. I’m not saying I don’t enjoy the mens game because I do, but I just prefer the womens game.

    Brandon who cares..

    Anyway UCLA coming up has me worried. It would be nice to win at least one.

  5. Brandon February 24, 2014 1:34 pm

    I simply stated my opinion because it dealt with the standings and my reasons for not liking the game as much. A simple who cares from you doesn’t really mean much anywag

    I personally think that Hawai’i, as I have mentioned from the beginning of the year will have a better chance at the MPSF title and possibly take one away. Instead they are battling with who is number one and playing a game in a lose, lose situation for them. Too small players and little rotation and participation by many players qualified, have caused this team to be insufficient in their approach or mindset to win the big games. They can’t work together. Rotation?

    Just because Averil is looking/feeling mighty fit, does NOT mean he’s “number one”. It’d be my assertion *imho–assertion* that as short as they are..the two that most consistently perform are Ramos and Kunetake..Yup!

    #13 BYU will be playing #21 Colorado State this spring in Fort Collins. ..too bad. Oregon is enmeshed, heavily, in SVB this spring…Some one like (BB school) Gonzaga still a possibility?

    responses 6- 8 are from the same crazy person…..

    this team is still battling inconsistencies. i’d like to see, as some already have suggested, a lineup change. averill at opp, and sedore and siki at the pins. it was a lineup they were forced to use at the end of last season, and it could be a turning point if attempted this season.

  11. ClawsBeatSkin February 26, 2014 8:37 am

    Please–nobody–miss out on the events of the ‘end times’, now!!

    Shoji being a part of it OF COURSE, A. Miller having been a long time part too, Ryan Tsuji, Wong, Aneli (who’s now coaching) yeah..It’s where it’s ALL at.

    I wonder if, out of these, any would claim the best sports knowledge in town: Steven Tsai, Dave Reardon, Bobby Curran, Gary Dickman??

    I wonder IF Portague Luis will be around for the ‘end times’? .. I’d like to see what Dave can do if the SA gives Reardon a chance at replacing Ann Miller next 2014. It might be just what’s needed.

    Cindy correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t you the beat for sand volleyball anymore?!

    A hui hou!

    Could you please retype the above #11 post in English ?

    11. Please do I can’t understand what your post means

  14. Turfwar February 26, 2014 11:54 am

    Not only are this guy’s posts jibberish. It’s kind of freaky. Like something you would see in NCIS or Criminal Minds.

  15. Warriorfan February 26, 2014 3:32 pm

    14. heh, a different username for each one of it’s personalities.

  16. Cindy Luis February 26, 2014 5:56 pm

    11. I am not portague, portagee or any of the names you have assigned to me. My father’s parents came from Madeira and I consider myself half Portuguese.
    Reardon is our columnist. he isn’t taking over Wahine vb.
    It looks like I will be going back to the beat, which I had since 1981.
    Ann has only been here a year longer than I am. and we both have been here longer than Bobby Curran, who used to be a sports clerk for the Star-Bulletin. And definitely much longer than Gary.
    BTW, it’s Stephen, not Steven. Ann and I were with the papers before Tsai or Reardon (as a writer, Dave was was known as a ‘copy boy’ back in the day with the SB when I was hired.
    Yes, I will be covering sand next week.

    14. Completely agree. Total Criminal Minds material.

  18. ClawsBeatSkin February 27, 2014 5:39 pm

    16. Why would you presume that I was all about making fun of Portuguese people. Whether you recall it or not, my avo (father’s side) was of pure descent as well.

    You may not have ever taken a Hawaiian History course, which everyone throughout the state was required to take in hs before graduation but the Japanese and Portuguese have had a tenuous relationship between races from the sugarcane plantation days–which is what brought them all into the islands in the first place (in equally mass numbers).

    The Portuguese were the task/care-masters of plantations..none the fault of any individual but merely hired on by the land owners themselves to be the boss. Being what they’d foolishly believed to be “second rate(d)”..the woe is me ‘victim’..in being resentful for not being #1..the Nisei grew up with their prejudices and are mainly responsible for perpetrating hard feelings in roasting “Portague’s” for as much as possible.

    I don’t use the slang word for Portuguese people, which islanders use in negative connotation.
