A good bye

After being hired as head coach, Norm Chow met with Mike Edwards in a closed-door meeting.

Edwards had undergone shoulder surgery that would prevent him from contact drills until the summer. Still, Chow detailed the blueprint for the program and asked Edwards to be a construction leader. It was a risky proposal. Edwards had transferred to UH in July 2011 in search of a fresh start. He spent most of the 2011 season focusing on football, academics and absorbing Richard Torres’ tutorial sessions.

According to the coaches, Edwards became fully invested in the leadership role. That meant encouraging teammates during contact drills in the spring. That meant representing the Warriors at the Mountain West media preview. That also meant sacrificing his beloved jersey No. 2. He was given No. 1, the leadership’s jersey.

Chow did his best to showcase Edwards’ talents, even if it meant the attention — and success — would hasten his UH departure. Edwards was named the No. 1 kickoff returner. There also were plays designed for him on offense. Early in the season, Chow named Edwards as a co-captain.

Chow and Edwards both used the phrase “great friendship” to describe their relationship.

Today, Edwards is signing the papers to apply for the 2013 NFL draft.

“I’m thankful for my time in Hawaii,” Edwards said.

It appears Ne’Quan Phillips is ready to step into a leadership role.

His nickname is “Mr. Honolulu.”

    Good Luck Mr. Edwards! Thank you for being a Warrior!

    Interesting read about the MWC!



    Just heard from a good source that the MWC has asked for a sit down with SMU, Houston, UTEP and Tulsa and the Boise deal has piqued BYU’s attention.

    SDSU has until 31Jan get decide if it wants back in or MWC moves on.

    Heres the article http://voices.idahos…state_exit_fees

  7. Stephen Tsai January 2, 2013 9:07 am

    I think it’s time UH gets its collective okole into the MWC.

    It’s never good to be the only football-only member. Nobody wants to be Sacramento State’s baseball team.

  8. J-FORCE January 2, 2013 9:14 am

    Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo plenty Mr. Edward. Now do your thing in the nfl & you sure looks good in a bronco’s uni. Go Warriors!

  10. SteveM January 2, 2013 9:16 am

    Good morning everyone!

    ST — I see your point about being a football-only member, but how much cost and resistance will there be from the other UH sports?

  11. wafan January 2, 2013 9:16 am

    Top 10!

  13. Shoko January 2, 2013 9:20 am

    If Jay can convince Thompson and the member presidents to take the rest of UH’s other sports, I would say that he was a very good hire. However, I think that is an obstacle as big as bringing down the athletic departments deficit.

  14. HawaiiMongoose January 2, 2013 9:24 am

    If the MWC tops out with only 12 members, then it’s not imperative for UH to join for non-football sports since the other 11 MWC schools may actually prefer round-robin rather than divisional competition in basketball.

    But if the MWC goes to 14 or more members and will have divisional play in basketball and other non-football sports, UH needs to move those sports back. The travel will be only a bit worse than in the Big West since divisional games will be in California, Nevada and Idaho.

  15. tommui January 2, 2013 9:25 am


    I read the some of the details in the Idaho Statesman on the BSU/MW agreement. It appears that the exit fee from the MW should some of the MW have a roving eye is only $5 mil.

    ST – any talk about increasing the exit fee?

    I don’t know if our basketball/volleyball/softball teams make $$$ should be make the final 6/32/16/8/4 in BB or whatever finals we have for VB and SB.

    If we do, as I understand the agreement between UH and MW, as we are only a football member in the MW, we don’t have to share the $$ made in the BB/VB/SB tourneys – assuming we get $$ there.

    Question: would we be better off being a full member in the MW?

  16. Papololoco January 2, 2013 9:26 am

    ST, This is where the new AD has to earn his paycheck. as long as we are a “football only”school then MWC will always have us by the Alas.

  17. Whats up January 2, 2013 9:29 am

    Here is a ESPN about SDSU, Boise and MWC expansion


  18. papajoe2 January 2, 2013 9:42 am

    I’m sure there are other teams with most sports but not football. Denver may be one and Seattle University may be another, to offset Hawaii being only a football member in the MWC. This would be on a “need only” for the MWC. I like UH in the Big West for the other sports. Recruiting and cheaper team travel is my main reason. Also, closer to home so more UH fans live in the area and it would be more affordable for UH’s home fans to attend some road games on the way to Vegas. Also cheaper to pay for a smaller team, to travel to Hawaii than a MWC team.

    Hi there, just was aware of your blog through Google, and located that it’s really informative. I’m going to be careful for brussels. I will appreciate if you happen to continue this in future. Many other people will probably be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!

  20. Whats up January 2, 2013 9:43 am

    Here is the actual written agreement with Boise State and the MWC per the Idaho Stateman.


    Talk about transparency from Boise State?

  21. Shoko January 2, 2013 9:45 am

    I know it would be easier for me if UH gets all its sports into the MW. That way I don’t have to keep track of two conferences. Yes, I’m selfish and lazy that way.

  22. Manoa#1 January 2, 2013 9:46 am

    That my friends, is how a coach develops a leader and breeds an environment for success.

    Good Luck Mr Edwards! Looking forward to seeing you on Sundays, unless you’re wearing a Raiders, Chiefs, Broncos or Jets uniform.

  30. Former UH Athlete January 2, 2013 10:21 am

    I’m sure Chow will be making calls to all his NFL friends to help Edward’s draft status.

    I’m actually surprised that Ne’Quan (a Floridian) will be fulfilling the leadership hole left by Edwards. Very cool to hear that he’s bought into the Local Style and is “Mr Honolulu.” Sounds like Chow is doing an excellent job off the field. On-field results will come as his recruits develop.

  31. PolyMom January 2, 2013 10:22 am

    Good luck to him and his entire family. Thanks for being a Warrior.

  32. Hilo-Warrior January 2, 2013 10:23 am

    Is this a feasible conference format?

  35. wasabi January 2, 2013 10:50 am

  36. leron January 2, 2013 10:52 am

    Mr.Honolulu is helping to try get those Florida recruits to join the team. There’s talk of hopefully having an all-Florida defensive backfield in the future. That would be NICE.

  37. Masaboy January 2, 2013 11:25 am

    It’s been a long time since UH recruited a “black” QB. any special reason? none since Mikey Carter – that’s over 20 years.

    Just watch the bowl games and see how many BCS schools have a black QB.

  38. A-House January 2, 2013 11:27 am

  39. Jun Tao January 2, 2013 11:33 am


    The only teams that I would swap are Nevad and New Mexico. Other then that, I think the rest of the teams fit in well if it was a split conference.

  40. HawaiiMongoose January 2, 2013 11:41 am

    Shoko, re #34, the lineup you propose makes the most sense geographically. The problem is that Boise State may want to be placed in the western division since it recruits so much in California. For that to happen, either SDSU would have to remain out of the conference and be replaced by an eastern division school, or the MWC would have to expand to 14 by keeping SDSU and adding two eastern division schools.

    Potential candidates for eastern division additions include SMU, Houston, UTEP, Tulsa and UTSA. There are reports that the MWC is currently talking to several of these schools.

  41. Former UH Athlete January 2, 2013 11:48 am


    looks good to me.

    Anyone else hoping the divisions names are “Western” and “Mountain”.

  42. Former UH Athlete January 2, 2013 11:55 am

    #34 & #40: that’s right… SDSU is still stuck in Big East limbo. The MWC will be paying for all/part of Boise’s exit fee but no word yet on SDSU. Boise want’s SDSU back in to make sure they still get to Southern California for recruiting purposes.

  44. Shoko January 2, 2013 12:01 pm

    Only reason I have Nevada and UNLV in the same division is because they are in-state rivals.

    I figured since Boise State is in the Mountain Time Zone they should be grouped with other schools in that time zone. If they add other teams (CUSA schools), I don’t know how the division would look like since the CUSA schools are in the MTZ (I think).

    They could call the two divisions Pacific and Mountain. Western sounds just as good, tho.

    The scheduled format could be that of other 12-team conferences. Five divisional games and three cross-divisional games alternating between years.

  45. Warrior Dave January 2, 2013 12:11 pm

    I don’t know if you can get Olympic sport Coaches to go all in to the MWC. Thought the competition was better for them in BWC?

  46. Bigislandkurt January 2, 2013 12:37 pm

    Tsai — Re: Collective Okole

    What would be the benefit of having all sports in the MWC? I keep reading that we might be better off as is — meaning we get to have our share of the MWC football revenue — and still save money by having our other teams only having to fly to California for Big West competition.

    Is it truly that much better for us to be a full-fledged member of the MWC?


  47. Whats up January 2, 2013 12:41 pm

    If the MWC expands to 12-16 teams, Hawaii need to become a full member already. MWC Basketball is on the rise and it would help Hawaii basketball team in recruiting. I can see the change in football recruiting already since Chow took over and Hawaii is in the MWC. Just imagine recruiting in the expanded MWC?

  48. Bowwar January 2, 2013 12:42 pm

    I hope Ben Yee has a better grasp of the BCS landscape versus JD…I think we played our cards wrong, when you get down to the bottom-line. The landscape is still “fluid”, so UH has to find the “best” place to be in respect to future changes/movement.

  49. Jon January 2, 2013 12:56 pm

    I’m pretty sure I read that SDSU doesn’t have to pay an exit fee to the Big East if Boise leaves. I have little doubt that SDSU will be in the Mountain West shortly.

    This is all great news for Hawaii as the nightmare scenario for us is always if certain schools break away from the Mountain West/WAC/Conference USA and form a western conference of 8-10 schools that doesn’t include UH just like how the MWC was formed. I’ve been afraid that with Boise in play that they could partner with BYU, Nevada and Fresno to be the nucleus of a new conference.

    With regards to exit fees being increased, those fees haven’t stopped any school from moving conferences recently. Maryland is on the hook for $50 Million to the ACC to go to the Big 10! I think conferences need to come up with other poison pills to keep their members in line.

  54. SteveM January 2, 2013 2:23 pm

    RE: #46

    Bigislandkurt — I surmise the advantage would be that the league would be less likely to vote you off the island if you were a full/all sports member — or exclude you with the justification they have to accommodate all-sport members first.

    Spooky. Say, has any league dumped a member before? Is there a penalty or severance package?

  55. wafan January 2, 2013 2:35 pm

    Seems not to be so much dumping as it was abandonment.

    Not too mention the national exposure other sports would have if in the MW.

  59. Pomai January 2, 2013 4:18 pm

    This is IMHO is what we need the MWC to look like.


  60. Pomai January 2, 2013 4:19 pm

    Now if BYwho came back then drop Houston….

  61. Shoko January 2, 2013 4:34 pm

    16-team conference seems like alot. I remember the old WAC where there were 16 schools all divided into quadrants. The more schools you have in a conference the more kala that has to be shared.

  62. Pomai January 2, 2013 4:38 pm

    Shoko true that but as I understand this is what MWC wants in the end. I like myself like the idea of a 12 member conference with a playoff.

  63. tommui January 2, 2013 4:44 pm

    #56 – was enjoying the Louisville game until Florida scored.

    Hope Louisville can hold on and score somemore.

    With the LSU lost and if Florida loses (and Alabama -hopefully), maybe the mystique of the SEC will be lost too!

  64. Shoko January 2, 2013 4:44 pm

    Yea, I like 12 members, too. Wouldn’t want a 16-team MW conference only for it to disolve like the old WAC later down the road.

  65. tommui January 2, 2013 4:48 pm

    BOWWAR re #48 – don’t forget our entrance into the MW was engineered by MRC and Freitas, not JD.

  67. Shoko January 2, 2013 5:33 pm

    Florida offense having a complete meltdown. Since when did Louisville learn how to play SEC defense?

    Oh, thats right. Strong was the DC for the Gators back in the day.

  68. d1shima January 2, 2013 5:50 pm

    How to counter Florida speed?

    Go get you some FL speed….30+ Florida natives on UL roster.

    Charlie Strong is smaht, too!

  69. Bowwar January 2, 2013 6:02 pm

    65: I think that was the ultimate vote of “no confidence” of JD…We probably took the “best possible” choice since we had not explored or prepared for others. MRC and Freitas didn’t make a good decision either…End result, we’re worse off than when we were in the WAC.

  70. Shoko January 2, 2013 6:21 pm

    It would be fair to say that Florida wasn’t prepared for Louisville. Nice job, Muschamp!

    I’m not sure if we’re worse off than we were in the WAC. The WAC is essentially dead in football.

Bet Florida is sorry that they did not hire him when they had the chance. But he has a white wife and Hapa kids so he was discriminated. We love Charlie as he promised we would be BCS bowling in three years. He kept his promise. Now he has a HUGE bonus coming from Tom Jurich. Don’t miss the Cotton Bowl. Going to be a great game!!!

    I think Shutter’s move makes sense since he probably still has Canadian citizenship and will have a better chance of making a CFL roster, since they can only have a limited amount of “foreigners” on the roster. I dunno if Shutter has the skills to make any professional football team, but his chances are better in Canada.

  83. Bowwar January 2, 2013 8:41 pm

    We could definitely use another “lights out” QB and RB…Are we still in the running for the Florida RB?

  84. Old School Dave January 2, 2013 8:43 pm

    Makes sense for Cayman. He didn’t get many decent opportunities this past season and next year the field is more crowded. As a 4th year Junior he might graduate in June. As a Canadian citizen he has a decent chance to make a roster as a backup up North. Currently I don’t think that there is a single Canuck QB in the CFL — they are all imports. Cayman could be a fourth QB on a team & not count against the import limit. Not saying that I understand the import rule…

    CFL draft

    Players become eligible for the Canadian College Draft four years after their first year of play at university.

    CFL draft eligibility is tied to neither college eligibility nor high school graduation. Typically non-import players become eligible for the draft four years after beginning college or university, provided that their name has appeared on the roster of a college or university football team at any point during those four years. This is the case regardless of whether or not they “redshirt” (are on the roster but don’t participate in games) and regardless of whether they were on the roster all four years.

    Good info. Canadian citizens can’t defer their eligibility. Because of that it doesn’t make them ineligible if they want to play their 5th year. Last US college QB drafted appears to be ESPNs Jesse Palmer.

I am hoping to give a contribution & aid different users like its helped me. Good job.

    In order to be draft eligible, a player has to qualify as a “non-import”. Although people treat the terms as interchangeable, this isn’t always as simple as being “Canadian”.

    If a player has lived in Canada for a total of five or more years (not necessarily consecutively) by the time he is eighteen, then he is considered a non-import.

    If a player is known to have spent some portion of his first eighteen years living in another country then he may be required to submit documentation (school transcripts, medical records, parents’ tax bills, etc.) to the CFL and CFL Players Association (CFLPA) to prove his time of residency in Canada.

    Disregard this if pop music isn’t your thing, but Girls Generation released their newest album on New Years Day featuring the lead single “I Got A Boy”. The YouTube video got more than 7 million views the first day. I love the song and the video, but I’ve been a fan for awhile.

    One of the things I find most interesting is the way the song kind of folds in on itself through its structure and lyrics. This will sound incredibly pretentious, but structurally the song reminds me of what Tarantino did with “Pulp Fiction” whereas the lyrics seem most akin to Joyce’s stream of consciousness where seemingly unrelated thoughts chase and tumble all over themselves.

    The song is supposedly about what girls/young women feel at various points in a relationship starting with the first giddy pangs of mutual interest all the way to the my guy is a jerk phase. In that regard I would guess it would have pretty widespread appeal, at least to a female audience. Of course guys will check it out just because Girls Generation has a certain visual appeal.

    And, yes, I do realize it is just a damn pop song. But quite a brilliant one, I think.

    Original version:

    sometimes the subliminal message gets picked up right away.

    good idea to re-recruit cogswell.

    still a long shot becasue many will inquire about him now that the dead period will come to a momentary pause.

    throw out that old list.

  119. al January 3, 2013 12:17 am

    i guess the coaches are banking heavily that st. juste will commit.

    a couple of really good looking norcal rb’s made serious inquiries only to be told that we weren’t recruiting anymor rb’s. one of them was called the poly drew-jones.

    kapakahi…it is true that the swinging door may still swing.

    that is good news really. because it would mean that those who don’t want to be here will make way for those who do or deserve a scholie.

    creative scholie allocation could also ensue, those five mid-year jc transfers could count for 2012 if there is room. (hint)

    one door swings out while the another one swings in.

  121. al January 3, 2013 12:23 am

    we could now entertain a few one and done guys…

    you know, perhaps a center/guard from the trojan horse or a former tackle from his cross town rival.

    pray tell there could be more 😉

    i am hoping that the b-ball boys close out this homestand with a three game big west streak. that would bode well for attendance, curiosity, and the impetus that they’ll need on the road.

    i like how the gibber slowly brought along manroop at the point. although he probably should be a 2, he’ll have to do well at the point this year before he slides over next year in his more comfortable sg position. the sham will be the pg next year no doubt.

    i am looking forward to seeing aaron valdez on the court next year, he along with big caleb.

    …and the word on the street is that michael thomas will make us forget about that other thomas guy.

  124. al January 3, 2013 12:34 am

    and yah, i agree st that we should petition to be all in in all sports in the mwc. we need to solidify are position so that we won’t be just an afterthought.

    sure the road to travel is tough but we need to a strong and viable conferenc member. we would fare well in softball, wvb, wbb, mbb, and baseball. of course, here’s hoping that we will starting chasing championships in football in a year or two.

    Hey, wasn’t there a Wigwam at the McCully site a looong time ago. You know the former Longs McCully location. I also believe there was one way up in Kaimuki too.

  145. mo808 January 3, 2013 8:05 am

    Robert Hall?

  146. Annoddah Dave January 3, 2013 8:05 am
