A day-light savings

The bill for goodwill actually wasn’t that high.

Eyebrows could be raised for sending the Warriors to Maui for an event drawing about 500 fans. But Hawaiian Airlines comped the airplane tickets and Maui County paid for the rental costs of War Memorial Stadium. The lunch was donated. That left UH with the expense of a bus. (The Warriors arrived and departed at staggered times.)

The Warriors actually turned a profit. On Friday night, head coach Norm Chow was the featured guest at a dinner that raised $16,000 for the Warriors.

A further benefit could be realized if some of the football prospects who attended the practice decide to join the Warriors.

* * * * *

With LG Chauncy Winchester-Makainai and RT Levi Legay recovering from ailments, the Warriors have been fielding the youngest No. 1 offensive line in recent memory: A true freshman (center Ben Clarke), two second-year freshmen (LT Blake Muir, LG Ben Dew), and two sophomores (RG David Lefotu, RT Jordan Loeffler or Sean Shigematsu).

* * * * *

Three recent moves:

• Wide receiver Charles Clay played well enough during special-teams drills to draw attention from defensive coordinator Thom Kaumeyer. Clay was moved to safety. The thinking was: If Clay can make open-field tackles on the coverage units, he could play defense. Clay’s speed is beneficial in other areas. Yesterday, he knocked down a pass on a safety blitz.

• Chinedu Amadi’s initial UH season was short-circuited because of a shoulder injury. This spring, he moved from slotback to running back. But with most of the reps going to Joey Iosefa, John Lister and Will Gregory, Amadi has moved to wideout.

• At 6-5 and about 260 pounds, Craig Cofer was considered to be a natural fit as a blocking tight end after he was moved from defensive end. He was on the move again yesterday, to the motion tight end, where he also can align in the slot, wide or the backfield. He dropped a couple of passes yesterday, but he has been sure-handed most of spring training.

* * * * *

Here’s an item which I don’t think made it into today’s online edition:


On Friday, Ceejay Santos took his last exam at Weber State.

On Saturday, Santos took his first step toward becoming a Hawaii football kicker.

Santos, who arrived on Maui at 7 a.m. Saturday, was able to attend the Warriors’ practice at War Memorial Stadium.

Santos intends to join the Warriors as a walk-on kicker this summer.

“That’s the plan,” Santos said.

Santos is a 2011 Baldwin High graduate. He was Weber State’s kickoff specialist last year, averaging 63.0 yards. By comparison, the Warriors averaged 56.5 yards per kickoff in 2011.

Santos will have to redshirt this coming season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. But he doesn’t mind the way.

“I’m glad I got to see them practice,” Santos said.

Jordan Hoiem also had circled the date of the Warriors’ first practice on Maui in three years. Hoiem is a Baldwin High sophomore. He also is a 6-foot-4 linebacker who received a scholarship offer from the Warriors a couple of weeks ago.


“I was shocked when they offered,” Hoiem said. “It’s kind of motivational.”

Hoiem has not decided on his college destination, but he did offer this: “Everyone in Hawaii loves UH. It’s our team.”

    Really strange page this….lots of letters piled up at the beginning of the post and spacing off on the first several posts.

    Good to hear Chinedu is back as a wideout.

    It’s easier to pass through the eye of a needle than to get an extra glove at UH.

  29. whitey April 22, 2012 8:06 am

    Thank you to Coach Chow and da Warriors for having practice on Maui. It was great to see what our 2012 team is shaping up to be. The team as a whole look very disciplined and the coaches are vocal and active. The coaches are like instant replay for the players. If you have not seen this year’s warriors in practice, circle friday night. You can make your own observations and see what our Tsaikos are saying about past practices. As a fan, it is fun to watch and cheer.


  30. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:11 am

    Always great to see Whitey.

    We also got to meet Haleakala and Maui Boy.


  31. whitey April 22, 2012 8:19 am

    Saw over a hundred cars parked at Kahului Harbor near the boat ramp and thought what is the special occasion there. Even had buses. Then someone told me that da Warriors would be practicing at War Memorial, so the everyday workers who normally park their cars to catch the Lahaina shuttle to work relocated their parking to the harbor area. Maui’s finest was also in the parking lot. Thank you to the workers, County, and da Warrior fans for a great Saturday at the stadium


  32. Ballpicker April 22, 2012 8:22 am

    Great article of the Maui scrimmage in Sunday’s newz peppa. Thank you blog master. And happy Sunday to all tsaikos.

    Washington Redskins, in their Super Bowl years.

    With Coach Chow raising of the bar Rolo’s return will be a great battle

    Nevada football: Rolovich discovering that ‘Nevadatude’

    But after two months with the Wolf Pack, Rolovich said that talk wasn’t hyperbole.

    “This place is tougher than anywhere I’ve ever been,” said Rolovich, who has been a member of seven professional teams and two colleges. “Just the mental toughness and the toughness of our kids are different.”Rolovich said he’s been drawn to the fact Ault demands “greatness.”

    Good move. Making good use of our personnel, as we are overloaded with WR’s.

    ” • Wide receiver Charles Clay played well enough during special-teams drills to draw attention from defensive coordinator Thom Kaumeyer. Clay was moved to safety. The thinking was: If Clay can make open-field tackles on the coverage units, he could play defense. Clay’s speed is beneficial in other areas. Yesterday, he knocked down a pass on a safety blitz. “

    Must be a real good experience for ‘ohana on the neighbor islands to get a chance to see UH, either for a game or for practice, and to be able to interact with them as well. Glad that we’re keeping that connection going.

    Hawaiian Air “comps” Rainbow Warrior team to Maui.

    Yikes, now I know why I pay high plane fare to Vegas – it’s not the high price of aviation fuel – it’s to recoup the above!

    Now, the only complaint I have with Hawaiian Air is the very HARD seats on their “air bus” – dang, get sore back every flight – no more enought “kala” to seat 1st class.


  47. Garret April 22, 2012 9:43 am

    I think that it is great for the Warriors to have a practice on a neighbor island every year. That is a great way to spread goodwill, gain new fans, and help short-term and long-term recruiting.

    Thank you to Hawaiian Airlines and Maui County for helping out the program and its fans.


  48. Last Call April 22, 2012 9:45 am

    Only 500 in attendance,Maui News says 1,200.

    Warrior football not as popular on Maui as Wahine volleyball I guess.


  49. Garret April 22, 2012 9:46 am

    I hadn’t read the blog for 2 weeks and haven’t caught up with the old posts yet–I stopped reading on April 7 because I was in Vegas (with Momo/Mrs. Momo and my wife and kids) and because that craziness was happening with the bet and the accusations. Somehow I’m guessing I missed a lot of posts…the zapper was referenced a few times in posts I read today.

    Work and family stuff kept me from peeking into the blog, but it is nice to catch up today. I’m not caught up to April 13 and it is especially nice to read the stuff about the practices and recruiting.


  50. Garret April 22, 2012 9:48 am

    Here is the Maui News article on the practice, I’ll include a little part of it below but the link has the whole article:

    “We intend to recruit all of the islands, the entire state,” said Chow, who cannot comment on specific recruits by NCAA rule. “We are out to prove to them that we can play great football and that they should want to stay home to be a part of it.”

    Baldwin High School sophomore linebacker Jordan Hoiem and junior quarterback Keelan Ewaliko were introduced to the team by Chow at the end of the two-hour practice.

    http://mauinews.com/page/content.detail/id/560458/Maui-on-his-mind.html?nav=11


  51. Garret April 22, 2012 9:49 am

    This blog entry specifically notes that Coach Chow making the first offer is an advantage for recruiting.

    Big credit to Chow, who noticed just a couple months in to his UH tenure that he needed to be the first in line for this kid to have any chance at landing him. The smiling, humble Hoiem is not about to commit right now — there are several offers to come, no doubt — but as I talked to him it is clear that UH made points with him by being the first to offer. That is simply a crystal clear sign that UH couldn’t have hired anyone better than Chow, IMHO.

  52. Garret April 22, 2012 9:50 am

    Here is where the Maui News says that 1,200 people attended:

    Four Maui recruits were the focus of the informal meet-and-greet session that went on in conjunction with the practice that drew a crowd of about 1,200.


  53. jm2375 April 22, 2012 10:06 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Sounds like yesterday was a success. Can’t wait for football to start!

    Huzzah!

    Garret is back.


  55. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 10:37 am

    I thought I was being generous going with 500.


  56. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 10:39 am

    A-House:

    It was part of the trade agreement Hawaiian has with UH. But, yeah, that is an awfully lot because it was a very large travel party. The team went over on three planes, then came back on two planes.


  57. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 10:41 am

    Things are starting to heat up on recruiting.

    Leo Goeas’ son has offers from UH and UCLA, and recently got a call from … The Ohio State.


  58. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 10:43 am

    Remember Dr. Dave?

    He’s a dentist who works at a health clinic in Kalihi.

    It was at 5 a.m. yesterday he decided, what the heck, I’m going to watch a football scrimmage.

    A few clicks on the computer, and he booked the 7:50 a.m. flight to Maui.


  59. kapakahi April 22, 2012 10:50 am

    #58,

    JMHO that Colton Goeas (Leo’s son) probably the other top local Class of 2013 LB prospect….in addition Paipai’s bro Rashaan.

    I didn’t recognize him because he wasn’t wearing his usual straw hat.


  62. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 11:00 am

    Chow seemed to think the festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. The flag football game will go for about 30 minutes.


  63. jm2375 April 22, 2012 11:33 am

    Hopefully I’ll be watching the Warrior Bowl from the RWSS. 😀


  64. Ralph April 22, 2012 11:43 am

    Friday! Na Wahine takes on Fresno State at the RWSS at 6 p.m. in a WAC showdown between the top two contenders for the WAC regular season title. FSU is 11-2 and UH at 10-3.

    Garret:

    Saw/spoke with Momo on Wednesday nite, 4/11, at The Cal. They were getting ready to leave for Arizona and said we just missed you and family.

    I know they returned on Thursday, but we did not see them.

    Hope you all had a good trip!

  68. kkv3000 April 22, 2012 12:18 pm

    To ST and .Kapakahi I,m back! I thought the crowd was at least 500, it kept growing thruout the morning.

    1200 is too generous, I would say the crowd was significant and definitely worth the trek to maui.

    To Slugger, Amadi looked impressive in one on one,s. I think he probably doesn’t know the offense that well from the receiver position. However, in one on one he gets open, he is quick and strong. He is definitely a player for the future


  69. RedZone April 22, 2012 12:35 pm

    Damn Urban Meyer. I guess he is looking for a Tebow.


  70. Haleakala April 22, 2012 1:12 pm

    It was great to meet ST and fellow bloggers yesterday at Tiffany’s. Derek I and Jam, a photograph for ST was also there. Thanks Whitey for making the reservations. Whitey and I discovered that we are calabash cousins. I hope SJ-macro and Myki as well as Sailor Blue and his wife are enjoying their Sunday on Maui. Stretch and PowderPuff were planning to play golf today. There was a light drizzle this morning but it should not hold them back. I also met MauiBoy. I know some of his family.

    SteveM should be here on Maui today via the cruise ship in Kahului. Enjoy your day on Maui Steve!

  78. BG April 22, 2012 2:48 pm

    Anytime I see Dr. Dave’s handle on the blog I can’t help but reminisce to the days of the Rainbow Sports Network. I would see the Stutzmanns’ grandpa on the hill watching practice. Hammer and kkv2000 would come by as well as Dori. I simply can’t forget Dori’s pumpkin squares and her other fantastic desserts (sounds like some other Tsaiko’s we know!). Alas, it all went away when Scott Robbs had the audacity and brilliance to ask her to marry him!

    I also remember Rolo’s mom blogged as “Follow the Dream” and Pisa’s mom, Ruta Aunese. Good, good memories…great people.


  79. SteveM [iPhone4] April 22, 2012 3:42 pm

    Good afternoon from Kahului!

    High winds (28+ kts) enroute Maui last night. A two pill night and I got rocked to sleep–a rare occurance nowadays. 🙂

    Now tied up to the pier until tomorrow night… How sedate. 🙁

    Same-o same-o… Eat, nap, eat, hot tub/pool, eat, party, eat, show, eat, sleep. Repeat cycle, adding a few heavy pupus in between. 😐

  84. wafan April 22, 2012 4:14 pm

    One of these days I will get to visit again.


  85. wafan April 22, 2012 4:18 pm

    Would be nice to visit each of the islands again. But, the air to island hop would cost more than what I pay to get there from here.

    What a racket.

    Higgins is a returner. refound Hawaii. 😀 good thing he wasn’t Utah so long.

    :mrgreen:


  97. BigHiloFan2 April 22, 2012 6:48 pm

    Coach Chow is going up and up with the big boys.

    what’d you expect? Chowfun?! :mrgreen:


  98. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 7:35 pm

    At sea level, Santos averaged 62.9 yards per kickoff.


  99. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:37 pm

    Wafan, are you awake?

    Retool!


  100. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:39 pm

    Spam gunner, man your post!


  101. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 7:39 pm

    At sea level, UH averaged 56.4 yards per kickoff in 2011.


  102. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:40 pm

    Good shot, Tsai!


  103. madeinhawaii April 22, 2012 7:41 pm

    Ahhh.. but what were the hang times?


  104. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 7:42 pm

    I think directional instructions affected UH’s kickoffs.


  105. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:43 pm

    So if he kicks off from the 35 yard line under the new rule, he

    will kick it into the end zone. Yeaaaaaa! Go Warriors and Santos!


  106. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 7:43 pm

    MIH:

    Someone suggested that Santos benefitted from playing in altitude. The numbers show he didn’t.


  107. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 7:44 pm

    Ipu Man:

    We won’t know until 2013.

    He won’t play until then.

    Hadden’s numbers will increase because he’s healthy now and there are no restrictions on where he must place the kicks.


  108. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:45 pm

    Of course, the USC referee will call some sort of kickoff penalty

    on UH on the first kick—guranteed…


  109. madeinhawaii April 22, 2012 7:45 pm

    Oh okay…


  110. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:46 pm

    Aw shucks…but better yet, go kick pigskin butt, Hadden!


  111. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 7:56 pm

    In USC spring game, qb Barkley got beat by the wind and USC

    defense. Here are some tidbits about what happened:

  112. Ipu Man April 22, 2012 8:02 pm

    On a another note, it was reported that pot smoking was

    rampant by Oregon football players. The report might

    actually help them in recruiting…

    🙄


  113. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:05 pm

    Last year, the average starting point for an opposing team was the 32 following a kickoff.


  114. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:07 pm

    By the way, it took me 18 minutes to go through the play-by-play to calculate that.


  115. Mad Dog April 22, 2012 8:07 pm

    Looks as though Coach Rolo has Nevada’s pistol offense doing more shooting this year.

    At the final scrimmage of spring practice, “The Wolf Pack quarterbacks completed 28-of-32 passes for 245 yards and one interception…”

  116. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:08 pm

    Mad Dog:

    What’s more, there were were two dropped passes.


  117. jm2375 April 22, 2012 8:11 pm

    Watched part of the 2001 UH-FSU bb game on K5 (with Savo, Puida, Martin, etc).

    Bring back the balloon brigade!! :mrgreen:


  118. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:13 pm

    If I recall, the no-balloon rule was a WAC policy.


  119. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:13 pm

    The way to beat that is to have an orange night.


  120. Mad Dog April 22, 2012 8:15 pm

    It will be a season of new looks in the Mountain West. Fresno and Hawaii with new coaches, Nevada tooling their pistol, along with the remaining Mountain West teams (except Boise) that we haven’t seen for a while all point to a season of new looks and learning.


  121. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:21 pm

    Isn’t Boise playing in the MWC this season?


  122. Mad Dog April 22, 2012 8:25 pm

    What I meant is that we’ve seen Boise so often, that we know what they will do. Well, sort of. After watching our run and shoot for the past 10 years or so, we knew the plays and just watched how the players executed. Boise is in the Mtn West, but I don’t expect them to change their offense. Sorry if I didn’t make myself clear.


  123. Stephen Tsai April 22, 2012 8:40 pm

    Gotcha.

    By the Big East has no idea what it’s getting in to with Boise. That’s a hard place to get to. On a November night, on that blue field, the visitors will be thinking: What the heck?


  124. BigHiloFan2 April 23, 2012 12:13 am

    goodnite everybody.


  126. kruzen April 23, 2012 1:13 am

    I haven’t seen Warrior football since the Montana game on 09/08/2001. It was exciting to see the practice on Maui yesterday. Even my wife enjoyed it. She enjoyed it so much we might even go to a game if we’re not too busy this year.


  127. instant decision credit April 23, 2012 2:02 am

    Someone essentially help to make severely articles I might state. This is the very first time I frequented your website page and so far? I amazed with the research you made to make this particular publish incredible. Excellent job!

    Help Garrett: You have a very astute mind and are very analytical, what do you think about this Government release???

    Government says Medicare will save $200 billion through 2016

    I see the zapper was out last night.


  132. wafan April 23, 2012 2:27 am

    It will be interesting to watch the kicking game this year.


  133. wafan April 23, 2012 2:28 am

    umm…

    next time Coach Chow comments about a player taking two steps forward and den one step back, and he’s gonna work on dat, straighten dat one out,

    i’ll think about the spammer who uses diffren names an comments about hitting da nail …

    “…[you] managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing with no need side effect, people can take a signal.”

    😀

    das you, ST. das you!
