A-campin’ we will go

The volleyball Warriors opened camp today at a camp.

This morning, they departed in two UH vans and coach Charlie Wade’s truck to Camp Erdman on the North Shore. They will train there for three days, with practices at Waialua High, ahead of Saturday’s non-conference opener against Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, N.J.).

For the Warriors, it will be a chance to connect — and disconnect. Cell phones are banned during camp.

    I remember watching Kanetake in the back row for Moanalua I believe it was and thought the boy was special. Glad to see he found a spot here at UH

  5. Stephen Tsai December 29, 2014 9:34 am

    He’s healthy again, too. He had a back problem in the fall.

    Great games by the basketbows in the DHC. Too bad they couldn’t pull out the W against Wichita St.

    Anyways, hope everyone had a great winter solstice.

  12. Stephen Tsai December 29, 2014 10:38 am

    He’s a transfer from Cal State Northridge. He’s a 6-8 middle. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. He can play immediately.

  13. hatakeman December 29, 2014 10:59 am

    ST, any update on the recruiting front?

  14. SteveM December 29, 2014 11:04 am

    Good morning everyone!

    The blog is back!
    Didn’t miss it much… and those 146 page views from my I.P. over the last week was purely accidental…

  15. graham December 29, 2014 11:17 am

    You don’t post for a week and then you put up a volleyball post

  16. jm2375 December 29, 2014 11:33 am

    graham – #14 – Football is pau for now. MVB starts on Saturday and ST is the beat writer for MVB. Any questions!

    Wishing all a Happy New Year.

  18. kahuna December 29, 2014 12:58 pm

    I guess the addition of Wellenreiter put to rest the question of whether Luke Owens will play. I also don’t think Radnar is a D1 level player yet. The addition of Vaugh could help UH if Holt/Averil was to struggle or get hurt of something. Never hurt to get a seasoned D1 level player on the team. I think Alex Jones will give Franciskovic a run for the starting job. I thought he played decent in the exhibition game.

    A volleyball player named, McKiller… 🙂

  21. hatakeman December 29, 2014 1:54 pm

    I am curious about Tristan Ludiazo, DE, Campbell H. S. I’ve noticed he is not being recruited … not by anyone. Yet he is the state, 220 lb. defending wrestling champion and 3rd team SA all-star football team selection. So what’s with Tristan?

  22. 3-Prong December 29, 2014 2:26 pm

    Happy Holidays Er’body. Small Kine Witdrawz las few days…hehe.

    Go Bows Tonite!

  23. cappiethedog December 29, 2014 2:53 pm

    Nice win against Duke.

    I hate how Penn State never has to face anybody challenging in their regional.

    One more year, Coach Shoji.

    “Kill” ’em all, as Metallica would say.

  24. islandman December 29, 2014 3:36 pm

    The StarAdvertiser blogs and the online newspaper get STUCK on my computer at times or are very slow. Anybody else have that problem too ?

    I don’t seem to have that problem with other websites.

  25. willieboy December 29, 2014 3:59 pm

    Mr. Wellenreiter needs to work on his tan too! lol Welcome to da Hawaii Rainbow Warrior ohana Mr. Vaughn Wellenreiter!!!

  26. Stephen Tsai December 29, 2014 6:03 pm

    Island man
    I get the same slowness, too

  27. islandman December 29, 2014 6:29 pm

    25. Stephen — Thanks, i emailed the warriorworld about it. Can they do something about it ? Is it all the ads slowing down the website ? A few other mainland news websites that have ads are also slow. The main StarAdvertiser online news website often gets stuck for awhile.

    This is not the new age of computers, seems like the slow age of websites.

  28. Chopsueyboy December 29, 2014 6:36 pm

    Happy Holidays! Finally get to go to my first MBB in a few minutes. Was too busy with holiday orders to even watch on DVR. This will be a great break from work. Go Rainbow Warriors!

  29. hitman December 29, 2014 6:47 pm

    aloha everyone happy holidays !! welcome back Stephen Tsai !! lets all hope they have a nice camp !! basketball tonight UH been looking good !!
    stephen tsai have start looking for a new AD aready ?

  30. 3-Prong December 29, 2014 10:30 pm

    So Portnoy on the Bobby Curran Show this morning says that Board of Regents of which he heads the Athletic Committe, is not involved in the issue of the AD, that it falls under the Chancellor who answers to the President. Is he trying to say they are not involved in us having to wait until BJ finds a new job until we start the search for a replacement. We need to get rid of the lame duck. Didn’t they hear that Shoji wants to know who he’s dealing with before he reups?! Anyway I call BS, on Portnoy for saying that the BOR are not involved. Come On Man! Oh and by the way are they also not involved in the inability of the Medical School to pay on it’s 9 million dollar loan. aren’t THEY, ultimately responsible for all of this?

    Ok I feel better now. Time for moe-moe.

  31. hatakeman December 30, 2014 4:38 am

    I thinks it slows due to the number of advertising being downloaded, coupled with a marginal lap or desk computer’s OS.

  32. tom December 30, 2014 7:32 am

    The Board of Regents has the duties to oversees “all aspects of governance for the university system, including its internal structure and management. The board also appoints, evaluates, and if necessary removes the President of the University of Hawaii”. They do not select professors, teaching assistants, coaches or even an athletic director.

    So Portnoy is correct that the Chancellor is responsible for the AD who answers to the Chancellor directly (and indirectly to the President). Chain of command thing.

    That being said, it seems to me that an interim chancellor supposedly has the power of a chancellor until a permanent one is selected. That being said, I would imagine that he could always appoint an interim AD to serve until a new one is appointed.

  33. 3-Prong December 30, 2014 7:56 am

    While technically, you are correct, we all know that in any heirarchy the Board of Regents or the Board of Directors in a corporate structure can easily directly or indirectly influence decisions down the chain of command. are you saying that they hire the President then its hands off from there?

  34. Tempmanoa December 30, 2014 8:25 am

    I can tell you you from direct knowledge that as a practical matter, the part time Board of Regents has little impact on what happens at UH. They have no staff, and they do not have any information necessary to overrule policy decisions by the Administration, and they are largely ignored by the Administration. Even requests for information by the board go unanswered if the Administration does not feel it is necessary for the Board to know because the Board’s responsibility does not include any day to day functions of the University. The Board learns of things done by the administration only after the fact and often knows little more than what the public knows or can find out.

  35. Ipu Man December 30, 2014 8:32 am

    Any good game today? A little boring on the bowl front.

  36. Old School Dave December 30, 2014 9:09 am

    Lewis Powell’s name has come up as a possible replacement for Utah’s D-Line coach who is now at Oregon State. He’s a capable position coach at D-line, is a good recruiter, and is a former Utah player. Anyone heard anything else to this effect?

  37. islandman December 30, 2014 9:11 am

    34. Manoa—so the BOR is more like a figurehead thing. Do they get fringe benefits such as some free game tickets ?

    31. hatakeman—The blog is not so slow on my laptop screen today, so far.
