Laurel availability in question

Weak-side linebacker Art Laurel has a sprained ACL and his availability for Saturday’s homecoming game is in question.

The diagnosis, though, is better than initially feared after he suffered the injury in the first half against San Diego State.

If Laurel can’t play, Kendrick Van Ackeren would get the start.

* * * * * *

It was an annual ritual.

The blog host would grumble about the lack of football players inducted into UH’s Circle of Honor.

JD the AD would grumble about about the blog host’s grumbling.

The blog host  would point out that Niko Noga was the greatest UH football player he’d ever watched. Noga would line up anywhere on the defensive line. He powered past blocks. He blocked kicks. People of a certain generation can’t forget the opening scene of the Dick Tomey Show, where Noga is running without a shirt. And his skin doesn’t move.

Al Noga was an All-America lineman — AP first team — who once knocked out two New Mexico players on the same play. Guess which team UH plays for homecoming this week?

Rich Miano, Garrett Gabriel, Michael Carter, Ashley Lelie, Vince Manuwai, Tim Chang, Chad Owens, the 12-0 2007 team …

Last year, JD the AD said he was tired of the grumbling (although he didn’t say “grumbling”). He said the blog host would be on the Circle committee. The blog host wanted witnesses. Media relations director Derek Inouchi and administrative assistant Jeannie Lee were drafted as witnesses to the promised appointment.

And then … nothing.

Well, I suppose, there were a few other side distractions the past few months.

This year, the committee did choose three very deserving former athletes, although none was a football player. Based on criteria, they did a thorough job.

The blog host, who apparently speaks in the third person, realizes the pointlessness of fighting windmills, that luncheons and plaques are not needed to define greatness or immortalize memories. Niko Noga will always be the best UH football player he’s ever seen. Garrett Gabriel did provide statewide chicken-skin moments when he led victories over BYU — twice — when that series mattered. Carter on the option was art, especially when it was revealed he played an entire season with a cracked rib. Lelie’s catch against Fresno State.  Colt Brennan’s touchdown against San Jose State. Owen’s returns against BYU.


As UH begins homecoming week, who are some of your favorite Warriors?

Happy birthday to Kaliko Lee.

    If I were to speak in 3rd person, but be quasi-schizophrenic, would that be 3rd person or just a multiple personality. On the other hand, Bulla really likes ST….. 🙂 things to ponder

  7. Stephen Tsai October 8, 2012 4:55 am

    I’m glad Bulla loves special teams.

  8. Stephen Tsai October 8, 2012 4:56 am

    … and Star Trek

  9. Bulla October 8, 2012 5:00 am


    Bulla agrees with you about Niko Noga, it befuddles Bulla (say that 5 times in a row…but then again it would be hard to say it in a row for that is a physical determination of placement of items, far better to describe it as ‘say that 5 times in successive order would be a more accurate depiction of the initial intent of the suggestion) why there is no mention of Noga.

    He electrified the fans, and left it on the field, as did many other Warriors in past years, but Noga had that ‘something something’ that was special. Bulla feels that Noga had the same Warrior Spirit as another ‘People’s Choice’ all-star……Nate Jackson.

    Bulla hopes that the powers that be, whether here or there or anywhere within earshot, would consider some other worthy student-athletes, and more importantly, those from the gridiron arena! 🙂

  10. Slugger October 8, 2012 5:02 am

    Good morning, gang!

  11. Bulla October 8, 2012 5:03 am

    Bulla would like to suggest to ST to have a nice day, it’s a Monday and game day will be here soon enough….

    Levi Stanley DT…in 1973 we were 50 point underdogs to UDUB. The game is televised. Levi makes 16 tackles and we shut down the puppies 10-7 in their house. After that, I was hooked.

    Didn’t Levi have his own “Army”?

  17. Bulla October 8, 2012 5:16 am


    Bulla says Levi is a great guy, battle scarred and wounded til this day. Bulla says easiest way to get Levi’s blood pressure going is ask him how is it possible someone could break his ‘career tackles’ record…Bulla believes it was Sol Elimniam (sp?) that did it.

    Watch Levi relive the UDUB game, play by play….. he still has the passion from his playing days, does he have eligibility left? Just a thought…..

  18. Loa October 8, 2012 5:17 am

    Loa says morning gang!

    Loa agrees with the blog host on Niko Noga. Loa always remembers story of NN running track in high school when Loa’s friend recalls a big blur sprinting past him in the relays was none other than Niko 🙂

    Careful in the vog today, folks.

    Romney delivering a great speech at VMI right now . . . didn’t know Libyan youths held pro-U.S. demonstrations (yes, that’s FOR America) following the tragedy there on 9/11/2012. “There will be no flexibility with Mr. Putin” Romney says. Whoa!!!! Nice!

    Mr. Tsai . . . did you manage to watch The Edge yet? [a Grease serves Mr. Tsai coffee.]

    ST and Bulla…I don’t remember if Levi had his own Army…but I remember UDUB trying to run over him on 4th down in the last minutes on the UH 20-yard line…and they get stuffed. 50K Husky fans crying. Loved it.

  26. Chicken Grease October 8, 2012 5:25 am

    Warriors should play VMI (see # 19) . . . man are all the bodyguards shown for a Romney necessary among cadets at a VMI . . . I mean, if he can’t trust these guys, heh.

    Call ins being taken by CSPAN right now. You thought naysaying was ripe on THIS blog? 😉

  28. Stephen Tsai October 8, 2012 5:31 am

    Not yet. The blog host is embarrassed to say that he came home yesterday and watched (on DVR) “Two and Half Men” and “Glee.”

    Bulla says that is Levi’s greatest memory, he actually went through the play, step by step, with all of the expletives that were exchanged prior, during and after the play…now THAT was football.

    Bulla is happy that Loa checked his family coconut tree to discover that us nuts all related, we bend and no break, do whatever it takes, bczu whether we wins or loses, we still stay da happy baboozes!

    Bulla needs to take a shower since he did not work out, and for some reason, he is having an out of body experience…..another JD reference for Bulla is ‘just dumb’, haha

  33. Stephen Tsai October 8, 2012 5:38 am

    The Noga Bro’s, my fav was Al Noga “the Samoan Sackman”, Ma’a Tanuvasa, Jeff Ulbrich, Jesse Sapolu, Vince Manuwai, Leonard Peters, Samson Satele, Travis Laboy, Isaac Sopoaga, Pisa Tinoisamoa, Chad Owens, Nate Jackson, Solomon Elimimian, Adam Leonard, Nate Ilaoa, West Keli’ikipi, Ashley Lelie, Davone Bess, Ryan Grice-Mullins, Jason Rivers, Walter Murray, Nu’u Fa’aola, Jeff Snyder, Jason Elam, Darrick Branch, Randall Okimoto, Ta’ase Faumui, Adrian Klemm, Wayne Hunter, Ikaika Alama-Francis, David Veikune, Reagan Mauia, Ryan Mouton, Colt Brennan, Michael Carter, Abraham Elimimian, Alex Green, Greg Salas, Kealoha Pilares, Chad Kalilimoku… well that’s all I can think of off the top of my head for now…

  36. Bulla October 8, 2012 5:44 am

    Bulla is amazed at The Blog Host’s memory retention….wait, oxymoron, or just-a-moron….how would you define memory retention…almost like a double negative…….no Koakane, not a double shot, a double negative…..kind of like when they say last call 2 times to you.

    Bulla wants everyone to have a great Monday, and for those of you that are off, Bulla is happy for you and your ohana, and for those that are not working… are very lucky.

    Bulla is going to celebrate Colombus Day later tonight, Bulla is going to walk into a stranger’s house and tell them ‘I’ve discovered you, move out and now I’m going to live here’, haha, mahalo to D-1 for sharing that perspective 🙂

  37. just saying October 8, 2012 5:44 am

    Coach chow is old school and believes that thru harder work and better execution his offense will get better. I think thats why he tries to fit players into his system rather than change his system to his players. I think the sooner he realizes that he wont be able to recruit the type of players that big time colleges gets , being the offenssive genius that he is, he will evolve his pro set and use whatever personnel he has or gets to his advantage.It seems to me colleges are changing their offenses like boise and oregon to compensate for this reason .

  38. mano1 October 8, 2012 5:45 am

    I think Niko Noga is the best football player ever to have worn the UH uniform. I was attending UH myself and went to all the home games he played and I saw all the super human football things he did as a player. The guy was built like the hulk and played extremely fast, hard and smart the entire game, every game. I can’t remember extactly how many timely sacks, blocks kicks, and knocked out opponents type plays he made but many are still clear in my mind.

    And the Noga’s are a class act. I remember years after they all graduated my friends an I were playing pickup basketball at Pearl City’s Pacheko Park and the Noga brothers had a team and asked if we would play them. We did and it was a fun, clean and most memorable moment playing against supreme beings in every classy way.

    I don’t understand nor care for the politics at UH but Niko and Al should have been inducted into the UH Hall of Fame years ago and should do it now.

  39. Bulla October 8, 2012 5:47 am

    Bulla agrees with ‘just saying’ but is curious why he saw a delivery or Ouija Boards last night by Fed Ex to the UH offices….either for Upper Campus or Lower Campus, but both have a lot in common right now……too many questions and not the right answers…hmmmmm

  40. Stephen Tsai October 8, 2012 5:50 am

    Al Noga is in graduate school or, at least, taking graduate courses.

  41. Chicken Grease October 8, 2012 5:56 am

    Wha . . . Wha???? WHO forgot to tell a Grease that today must needs be Third Person Narrative Day in addition to today being Columbus Day (which a Grease hopes all of you have off as a Grease does :))? This is must what Jesus feels like being sung “happy birthday” to on Christmas! 🙂

    Still thinking about that Glee, Mr. Tsai. Anybody else? May as well tell us if you sing along. Was the Glee adorement behind the, um . . . er . . . wait for it . . . wait for it . . . the . . . um . . . er . . .an additional reason behind your . . . uh . . . the . . . SAME OLD SONG [emphasis a Grease’s] headline from Sunday’s blitz section, BWAHAAH HAHAH AHA AHA AHA AAHAAHAHAAHA . . . HAHAH . . . Hahah . . . haahaah . . . haha . . . ha . . . ahh . . . um?

    A Grease is more of a Treme guy (Hawaii needs that kind of show portrayed about us; 5-0 can be a bit outlandish on an island alone w/relatively tough gun laws [whhooooops. A Grease editorializes here]). And Homeland is the real deal).

    Lobos up next. Whoooo. Wonder who Leilehuans gonna root for.

  42. LizKauai (mbp) October 8, 2012 5:59 am

  43. LizKauai (mbp) October 8, 2012 6:02 am

    LizKauai was not paying attention to Warrior football for as long as many people here so she would be voting for mor recent players… including Lelie, Brennan and Green.

  44. LizKauai (mbp) October 8, 2012 6:04 am

    LizKauai has to go to work today so hiho and happy day off to those who have one.


  45. gigi-hawaii October 8, 2012 6:09 am

    huh? what did Bulla say about men who wear kukui nut lei?

    inquiring minds want to know.

  46. Bulla October 8, 2012 6:14 am

    Bulla takes the 5th on Gigi’s inquiry, and will make not that anything the esteemed blog host might remember is ‘allegedly heresay’:

    Hearsay is information gathered by one person from another person concerning some event, condition, or thing of which the first person had no direct experience. When submitted as evidence, such statements are called hearsay evidence. As a legal term, “hearsay” can also have the narrower meaning of the use of such information as evidence to prove the truth of what is asserted. Such use of “hearsay evidence” in court is generally not allowed. This prohibition is called the hearsay rule.

  47. Bulla October 8, 2012 6:15 am

    Bulla meant ‘note’ not ‘not’….or knot knot that it’s all tied up….note instead of not

  48. tommui October 8, 2012 6:18 am


    Maybe we should start up a Hawaii Football Hall of Fame.

    Really a shame that AL and Niko Noga isn’t in the Circle of Honor.

  49. mo808 October 8, 2012 6:22 am

    mo808’s all time favorite Warrior is “……Nate Jackson” too, Bulla!

    mo808 recalls how this safety would stand like a brick wall back there and opposing team player thinking, “I’m gonna run through this guy”–but, was blown back with a whip lash and concussion–wondering, “anyone get the license number?”.


  50. mo808 October 8, 2012 6:23 am

    mo808 would also like to wish wish Kaliko a very happy birthday!

  51. mo808 October 8, 2012 6:26 am

    this blogger would also like to see the Noga brothers receive the UH’s Circle of Honor recognition!

    [based on the above, a Grease wonders how a Bulla would celebrate a Martin Luther King, Jr. day.]

    ESPN 1420am’s getting it’s share of defenses of Chow. A Chow should just unleash in a press conference. Would be fun to see.

  53. 3-Prong October 8, 2012 6:31 am

    To answer the question at hand, a 3-Prong says “Two Words……..Falaniko Noga”. Never seen more dominant action at line of scrimage since.

  54. mo808 October 8, 2012 6:34 am

    Finally, mo808 would like to wish everyone a fabulous Columbus Day (holiday for some but not for this blogger who has to get her butt outta bed and back to work today after a much needed vacation)! Note: this third person speaking is fun but not comfortable (requires too much thought).

  55. mo808 October 8, 2012 6:35 am

  57. Kapahulukine October 8, 2012 6:44 am

    Kapahulukine say Circle of Honor need Jason Elam. Na ka oi UH football kicka dat!

    Kapahulukine say kickas peoples too.

    Denver Broncos

    Elam was drafted out of the University of Hawaii by the Broncos in the third round (70th pick overall) of the 1993 NFL Draft.

    Elam holds NFL records for best extra point conversion percentage (.995), most consecutive seasons with at least 100 points (15), fastest to 300 successful field goals, fastest to 1,600 and 1,700 points.[2] Furthermore, Elam was the first player in NFL history to score at least 200 points against three or more teams (San Diego Chargers: 222, Oakland Raiders: 215, Kansas City Chiefs: 203). Elam is also tied with Steve Christie for the most overtime field goals with 9. Elam was named to the Denver Broncos 50th Anniversary Team in 2009.[3]

  58. Kapahulukine October 8, 2012 6:49 am

    A kapahulukine also say, no forget Elam good UH kicka:

    College career

    In four years as the placekicker for the University of Hawaii at Mānoa football team, Elam scored the third-most points in NCAA history (397) and tied for the second-most field goals kicked (79). He held the record for all-time leading scorer in the Western Athletic Conference until 2010 (Broken by Kyle Brotzman of Boise State) and was a three-time All-WAC selection. Elam also majored in communications while at Hawaii.

  59. Wes'side Warrior October 8, 2012 6:52 am

    Morning, Gang!

    Wes’side thinks the opening write-up by the Blog Host is great! And that’s just for starters. Wes’side believes fellow bloggers will come up with lots more memorable players who are also just as deserving.

    Wes’side is hungry… *excuse him while he goes to make some coffee and search for something to eat…*

  60. Former UH Athlete October 8, 2012 6:56 am

    My favorite Warriors:

    Isaac Sopoaga – he’s a beast and is a mainstay on the 49er’s D-line.

    Dan Robinson – Being able to learn JJ’s offense in one year and was key to revival of UH football

    Colt Brennan – for obvious reasons

    Alex Green – Best RB to go through UH in 20+ years but terribly under-used by Rolo and Mack

    Vince Manuwai – one of the best OL to ever play for UH

    Travis Laboy – I’ve seen him in the UH weight room and his physique looks like Superman

    Chad Owens – c’mon, it’s Mighty Mouse, and could be the best CFL returnman in history

    The 2007 WR corps: Bess, Grice-Mullins, Hawthorne, and Rivers

    And gotta give love to the kickers

    Jason Elam – Best UH kicker

    Mat McBriar – Best UH punter

    So a iwwthm reads that Chow will stick to the prostyle. A iwwthm hopes [emphasis on hope (emphasis on emphasis)] that coach throws in some screen passes and more option plays.

    A iwwthm will be at the next game and a iwwthm encourages all fans to support by showing up.

Whew, some rough times for the Tsaiko ohana with the current condition of our UH Warriors….Bulla said ‘our’ not them, those guys, da oddag guys, or who dos guys….’OUR’ UH Warriors….I don’t blame the players, they don’t train to do badly, they don’t practice to fail, and they don’t yearn for shellackings… the COACHES….. they have been hired to do a job, the best indication of the success of that hiring is W/L record, but also, as someone has said, ‘are they putting a quality product’ out for the fans…

    Bulla will leave you all in your own consuming thoughts, but Bulla supports all the players for their hard work, their dedication, and their choice to play for the 808 🙂

    win or lose, “Inner-Circle” aloha stadium parking and tailgating, which, at the same time supports Koa Anuenue, is priceless. i’m there this saturday afternoon and for the game.

  84. John Fitzgerald Byers October 8, 2012 8:23 am

    Wouldnt be the first and last time Donovan said he would do something and nothing happened..

    Wouldnt be the first and last time a UH athletic administrator said they would do something and nothing happened….

  85. DoubleB October 8, 2012 8:25 am

    I’m looking forward to going to the Stadium and watching our Warriors get win #2 on the season. Stand Proud young Warriors. Don’t get down… Fight for every inch of field position… And walk off the field Proud and Humble after your win. I Believe!!

    A DoubleB will be cheering from the stands and when it’s all over I hope to have a hoarse voice from cheering.

  86. DoubleB October 8, 2012 8:29 am

  89. madeinhawaii October 8, 2012 8:38 am

    Although his numbers really didn’t inspire, and he played behind the Hula T, I really liked QB Alex Kaloi. Wanted to see what he could do during his senior year at UH, but unfortunately, he broke his sixth and seventh cervical vertebrae and that ended his football career. Then he went on to become a dentist, now practicing in Waianae.

  90. Shoko October 8, 2012 8:40 am

    Speaking of the Lobos, they don’t have a passing QB, however, they do have a freshman QB that can run (Yikes!). So far, they’ve been averaging 11 pass attempts per game and threw only three times with one complete against Texas State. Compared to them, Chow’s offense looks pass-happy and their QB makes Schroeder look like Peyton Manning.

  91. LizKauai October 8, 2012 8:42 am

    LizKauai thinks that the upper campus should peek into the blog and become inspired by the many, many outstanding Warriors listed here and fall in love with UH Athletics for all the right reasons – and design a win-win situation going forward for the University and for Hawaii…

  92. iwonderwhytheyhateme October 8, 2012 8:45 am

    a shoko believes the Lobos are Lolo with the pass. A iwwthm thinks the same. But………..that…….is…….what……..makes……a Lobo dangerous…a R-U-N….(emphasis on Lobo)

    The question a iwwthm has does a Warrior prevent a Lobo from going Loco at a aloha airline field?

    Mrs Gorightry…..I proteeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssstttt!

  95. Bulla October 8, 2012 8:53 am


    Bulla agrees with the 11, shoots, Bulla would love to throw 12 in just for good measure. Look for a 4-3 set, with all the Defensive Secondary players we have, they gotta do something. The cupboards are bare, bare, bare for linemen, on BOTH sides of the ball 🙁

  96. WarriorMojo October 8, 2012 8:54 am

    If WarriorMojo was watching tv and saw a show he didn’t like, he’d simply… change the channel.

  97. AZWARRIOR22 October 8, 2012 8:59 am

    The natives are restless; we better beat the Lobos and beat them bad at home.

    Niko Noga was the man – had lunch with him back in my UH days in the Towers.

  98. iwonderwhytheyhateme October 8, 2012 9:01 am

    a shoko and a Bulla

    sometimes iwwthm paused [wait for it] to make sure a team had all 11 defensive players on a field. at times, it did not appear to be so.

    Most wouldnt know its home coming.

    The push from UH to plug and boast homecoming week should have started the Monday after the Nevada game.

    I said this two weeks ago.

    When you are trying to promote a team, you must always be on the offensive. After a bad loss. Plug the next home game as much as possible. Its football so no shortage of freebie give away trinkets like other sports have so push that.

    If you only try to mention homecoming now, well…. 1-4 doesnt help, but as advertisers/promoters go shouldnt the hype have started a while ago.

    Marketers cannot control how the team wins or loses but they can control how they try to market the team and the game itself.

    Proaction > reaction

    Dont need a fancy degree or job experience to know that.

  126. Bleed Green and White October 8, 2012 9:30 am

    The reality of it all is this, unless the “politics” at UH subsides, then, well, I cannot believe the Circle of Honor is worth a damn.

    How in God’s name the two best players in the history of the football program, Al and Niko Noga, are not included, that is absolutely ridiculous.

    Not to mention the many others.

    This is not, again, not a slight toward the others who have been inducted, but without the best ever……wow.

    I can only assume, especially when you add recent accounts, that there are some real damn idiots working on campus.

    My God! It’s like inbreeding of the idiots!

  127. Bleed Green and White October 8, 2012 9:33 am

    I thought I was being generous listing my prediction of 4-8 for the 20-12 season.

    It’s not that I don’t believe in Chow, because I do, I really do…However, with the style he wants to play, and I’m talking offensively, he just doesn’t have the right kids.

    I mean truthfully, he’s trying to run the Kentucky Derby with Clydesdales.

    I give 2, maybe 3 years to recruit the right type of kids, and then I’ll judge.

    I love the discipline he’s trying to place on the kids, because for too long, we had a bunch of “punks” representing our state school. It was embarrassing.

    I do believe in Chow, I buy into what he’s selling, I like that he speaks honestly and truthfully when I see / hear him.

    I read a bunch of arm-chair Q-B’s chiming in about Sean Schroeder, but c’mon people, exactly who the hell is he supposed to throw the ball too…?

    The poor kid’s running for his life every snap, UH offensive line play has been horrible. And that’s saying it nicely.

    Defense, to be honest, it’s really starting to concern me.

    I do, however, love the idea of playing Benny Fonua at middle linebacker.

    Go Chow! Go get some recruits! I hope the “local boys” stay home!

  128. Garret October 8, 2012 9:33 am

    Watching all of the games that Niko Noga played at Aloha Stadium was a treat. He truly was a dynamic player that changed the game whenever he was in the game. UH’s Circle of Honor isn’t complete without him.

  129. stuckinthe70's October 8, 2012 9:34 am

    Played a lot of basketball with Niko Noga at the UHawaii. Best darn athlete I ever seen. Well, maybe in the top 2 or 3. Blaine Gaison

    was a super athlete too. Favorite Rainbows Larry Sheerer, Larry Arnold, Larry Cole, Albert Holmes, Jim Kalili, Tim Buchanan, Jeris White, Harris Matsushima,

    Levi Stanley.

  130. Garret October 8, 2012 9:36 am

    Nice article about Mike Milovale. Milovale speaks highly of Coach Chow if you go to the article that I link to below:

    The 6-foot-3 offensive lineman was heavily recruited and was trying to choose between Middle Tennessee and Louisiana Tech. Then, Hawaii came calling.

    In a late coup, the new Hawaii coaching staff contacted Hartnell coach Matt Collins about Milovale.

    “When we go read to little kids, the kids are all excited,’’ he said. “It was supposed to be a reading to kids, but they asked so many questions and are so excited about football we didn’t get to the reading.”

  131. NinjaWarriorTurtle October 8, 2012 9:36 am

    I put Levi Stanley on par with Niko Noga. And since I am an old-timer, I want to mention players from 50 years past – Larry Sherrer (RB 1969-71), John Woodcock (DT 1974-75), Mark Odom (LB 1987-90), Jim Mills (OT 1979-82 CFL Hall of Fame), Ralph Kaspari (FB 1967-69), Cliff LaBoy (DT/DE 1973-75 Father of Travis LaBoy), Nuu Faaola (FB 1982-85), Golden Richards (WR 1972), Gary Allen (RB/WR/KR 1978-81) and Larry Cole (OL 1972).

    If I remember correctly, Levi Stanley was about 195 lbs when he entered UH out of Waianae HS in the late 60s. He worked hard in the garage sized weight room UH had attached next to Klum Gym and built himself into a 250 lb defensive tackle (good size in those days). Same story with offensive lineman Dan Audick, who went on to play many years with the Chargers and 49ers.

    Message from Chancellor Tom Apple


    Aloha Manoa �Ohana,

    Our university has been going through some rough times the past few weeks.  While I believe that I have a good working relationship with the President and the Board of Regents, I want to make it clear that it is you whom I represent.  I am here to advocate for the students, faculty, staff and alumni of Manoa.  My commitment is to you.  

    I have been going around and speaking with many of you about issues of concern here on campus, but I would like to step up the dialog.  Let’s continue to work together and move forward, to facilitate students finding their passion and to support research that matters. There are so many good things happening in our UH Manoa community.  Let’s build on them.  What do you want for the future of UH Manoa?  What are your ideas for improved communication and campus unity?  Please think about this in the coming days and articulate your thoughts to me at the following address: I will respond in a collective manner in another email soon. I believe that our greatest challenges offer us some of our greatest opportunities.  

    Mahalo nui,

    Tom Apple

    Nike honcho Phil Knight was in the post game after the Oregon – UW game talking about why this victory is important to him. Guys like Knight and T Boone Pickens (Oklahoma State) seem to have a lot more influence than it appears. Is this a good thing? LSU HC Les Miles didn’t think so when he was the head coach at Oklahoma State and became apparent that it was Picken’s program.

  151. greenthumb October 8, 2012 10:59 am

    greenthumb is enjoying the virtual stroll down memory lane. So many excellent players, so many memories of friends and games and such. gt is surprised that Noga and Elam are not already in the Circle of Honor.

    greenthumb thanks iwwthm #24 for the chancellor’s message and is struggling against the urge to laugh at the email address (say it out loud as a word to see why). GT chuckles over him saying “articulate your thoughts to me” because while that is better than the icky “inbox me” phrasing and is grammatically correct, why couldn’t he have said “send me” … simple can be better on so many occasions.

    Speaking of which, GT finds this third-person stuff difficult. But somehow also a reminder of UH days and the “pens that lost themselves” (odd memory of language grammar).

  152. madeinhawaii October 8, 2012 11:01 am

    That little note by Apple seems like an attempt to turn academics against athletics… I don’t like it at all… Should have been.. “”finding their passion and to support what matters to them.”

  153. greenthumb October 8, 2012 11:01 am

    P.S. GT thinks it would have been fun to have “talk like a pirate day” celebrated on the blog this year, and respectfully asks the Blog Host to consider that for next Sept. 19.

The spam comment was in no way commenting on you, my guess had been that you vetted it as sent from a legit address before posting it. (Tho one does wonder where Mr. Apple’s Oxford comma went in his third sentence.

  163. greenthumb October 8, 2012 11:14 am

    159. Seems like schools have certain latitudes with gmail implementation, and some of that is driven by the actual user. I guess my point was the address in the e-mail looked different than his primary UH address would be expected to look, as in ______ (at) and that although UH mail is now tied to google, edu-type gmail does behave a little differently than consumer-type gmail.

    Billy Ray Stutzmann – returning leading receiver 78 catches 910 yds. 4 tds All-WAC 2nd team, top 100 recruit out of high school, 6th best from Hawaii, 3 time All State

    Jeremiah Ostrowski – returning Senior receiver 65 catches 687 yds 5 tds 2 time All State and 06 state offensive POY

    Trevor Davis – returning starter 28 catches 366 yds 3 tds Top 20 East Bay All Star in HS

    Justin Clapp – returning part time starter 38 catches 356 yds 4 tds

    Chris Gant – 2010 JC All American 81 catches 1134 yds 17 tds

    Darius Bright – returning receiver All conference in HS

    Cecil Doe – All State 1st team HS

    Chinedu Amadi – 1st team all CIF HS

    Corey Paclebar – 1st team All league HS

    Duke Bukowski – 2 time All State HS

    Harold Moleni – 2 time All State, TE POY as a senior

    Clark Evans – JC All American #4 TE in the nation, 34th best JC recruit, 81 st prospect out of CA HS

    Ryan Hall – 37th best TE, All State HS

    Scott Harding – returning receiver Freshman All American

    Ethan Watanabe – All district 1st team HS

    Joey Iosefa, Will Gregory, John Lister, Sterling Jackson, Jared Leaf, etc…

    So I think we have enough targets, experience, and guys who are big time players. Yes some are hurt, some are young, but there is talent. Enough for him to throw to. From what I’ve seen the Oline for being inexperienced is doing okay in pass protection. He could help out by scrambling or throwing the ball away at times…oh well guess we’ll have to continue to watch this for the rest of the season…

    Truth be told, the Noga brothers put UH football on the map. Because of what they did as players, NFL and Div 1 teams started to systematically recruit Hawaii and Samoa. Until the Noga’s played at UH, no one (NFL or college) seriously recruited Hawaii systematically.

    I think we are looking a little too deep into an email address.

    AGreasestronglydisagrees. More than a few readers of that letter (tegami in the Japanese language) by Apple must certainly [Stevie] wonder why (dosh’te in the . . . well, you know by now) an Apple would use his non-UH mail when he is clearly addressing UH matters (did a Grease misread? Was he asking non-UH related folk for buttermilk dressing recipes instead?).

    It is quite suspicious to use an email outside of his own UH email address, to say the least. Remember when coach Jones used UH letterhead for personal stuffs? And he was winnin’ games at the time.

    Hope the local media picks up on this Apple gmail (ah, an oxymoron of sorts, ahahahah ahaa aaha . . . ahah . . . ha).

    Thanks for letting us know about this letter, iwonder’.

  196. Why Schroeder? October 8, 2012 12:57 pm

    I don’t understand why Schroeder was GIVEN the job with so little competition. He transferred late this summer from Duke, a 3-9 team year after year, where he never saw the field. So no spring. He was named the starter after THREE practices. The way Chow talks, he has more job security than the Queen of England. And we have QBs like Graves and Shutter who to me look like they have WAY more mobility, get rid of the ball quicker, and better arm strentgh. Graves had a 127 QB rating when he played last year. I know Chow knew Schroeder when the kid was a high school player, but it just doesn’t make sense, especially since Graves who was slated #2 doesn’t even travel with the team. What happened?

    #169…..still don’t get it huh?

    all that on paper means nothing. as they say, that’s why they play the game. and in playing the game your paper product bears zero weight. why don’t you compile a list of all the opposing teams defensive players too while you are at it.

    why shroeder?

    to me it’s simple. shroeder will either be the starter next year or give us a solid #2. if you look at a whole entire 4 quarter game hands down shroeder is who you want under center. i’ve seen shroeder move out of the pocket, slide, scramble and make plays by hanging on to the ball and making great passes at the last second while taking brutal hits. he’s not perfect, but it’s clear he has the best grasp of the system.

    funny…negative plays seem to stick out in people’s minds in losses where it blinds them to plays that were brilliant.

  232. Manoa October 8, 2012 2:51 pm

    I know coach Chow knows more about football than I ever will even if I devoted the rest of my life to it.

    So my suggestion comes from what many top colege coaches and NFL coaches have done– Dump the tight end and substitute another receiver lined up as a slot or split wide like an X or Z receiver. Those big receivers that replace the TE are among the most productive and exciting players today– Boise makes good use of theirs. Even a smaller receiver would be more valuable than putting a TE inside to draw another big defender. Use an extra offensive guard instead of a TE as a blocker if you need blocking– they do a better job than most tight ends.

    Chow has a fullback/Hback/R receiver he can still use for blocking inside and the angle blocks the tight ends do. He also has the running back to block as well. Or he can use a receiver for those players lined up as a slotback.

    Make this

    apple is playing two sides of the fence and i am going to throw this in this mix….

    greenwood has some kind of science or something credential that not many people have. it came out in apple’s testimony that he does not have that same thingee that greenwood has and said he’d like to have one, or obtain that status.

    is it not out of the possibility then… that greenwood says to apple, follow the program and i will recommend you to our organization…or that apple is “hoping” by doing some things greenwood will recommend him???

  243. Pauoa Boy October 8, 2012 3:28 pm


    Go ahead and ride the Schroeder jock strap. To me he sucks and I could care less about what you think he does brilliant. His brilliance has our offense rated at the bottom tier of all college football. Our passing game is horrendous and non existent. To say he has no one to pass to or a line to block is BS! Yes there have been the fair share of OLine breakdowns and dropped passes, but his brilliance only shines through when??? An occasional downfield throw? Oh he looks good cause after holding on to the ball for a half hour he throws to a receiver who bails him out. He is not consistent at all, he cannot sustain a drive to save his life, running is an oxymoron, throwing the ball away to avoid a sack is unheard of. On paper he may look decent but like you said it doesn’t do him justice because he continually proves to be mediocre at best. I mean get real, and believe me I get it. I get that by this guy remaining as the QB expect nothing less than what we’ve seen so far, total blowouts and ass whoopings! He cannot win the game on his own obviously, but he is the key to making the offense go which it is stagnant. We are to the halfway point of the season almost, I’m still waiting for his supposed “it” factor to kick in… I didn’t expect much but I haven’t seen any improvement

  244. SAWARRIOR October 8, 2012 3:28 pm

  265. Why Schroeder? October 8, 2012 5:07 pm

    Moocher, I CAN remember positive plays from LAST year, and I’m talking about after Moniz went down and we had the QBs we have now. When for example the Hawaii offense had a lead over BYU in the second half (unfortunately Graves got hurt.) The game before Graves led Hawaii over Tulane with crazy stats in 3 qtrs. And the game before that when he entered in the second quarter against Fresno State he brought us back for a lead. So Hawaii fans shouldn’t see this as a throw away year just because Moniz is gone, or because Chow has to work in his new system. Team I see now can’t score against BYU, and the Fresno State game I hate to say will be a train wreck. I still can’t figure what Chow sees in him, and why Graves and other kids who came to Hawaii first (not Duke, which is not exactly a football power house) seem to have no chance. Put yourself in there place. Don’t buy this rebuilding BS. We were 6-7 last year, with plenty of players back. Only way we get there now is playing Lamar 6 times. Chow taking Hawaii wrong direction big time.

    265. sometimes a new HC likes to play “their” guys, players THEY brought in. coaches made no promises/commitments to players/families that another HC brought in. IMO

    I’ve seen it happen at other schools, not saying Chow is like that , but u never know. correct me if i’m wrong, but JJ’s 1st year at SMU, he started HIS recruit, Bo Levi Mitchell (true freshman) , a player he brought in instead of a returning sr starter to run HIS system.

    269: I get what you’re saying and you are right. I see that in business too, managers bringing in guys they know, knew in past vs. those that had been with company for years. Difference in your compare though is Mitchell did not have years off, was named starter as a freshman and threw for over 4,500 yards in 19 games, then got hurt sophomore year. Mitchell had skills that jumped out at anyone and I think he plays for Calgary in CFL now. Schroeder on the other hand had not played in a game since high school, which I believe was 3 years if he redshirted at Duke, and I think he was pretty far down in depth chart from what I read. Then shows up to Hawaii this summer and named starter after 2 or 3 practices. Now seems to have 100% job security, no matter what… Just seems odd, but admitedly I’m not at these practices. I just see the games.

  285. Bleed Green and White October 8, 2012 6:57 pm

    I continue to be amazed at well, really, some of the absolute “cluelessness”.

    People bagging on Sean Schroeder, still. Are y’all kidding me?

    Some even questioning if he actually wont he job outright?

    I’m pretty sure most of ya’ll were not at every practice during Fall camp. I’m pretty sure the coaching staff was.

    Now I’m getting ticked off.

    Again, I ask, “Exactly who the hell is he supposed to throw it to? Exactly who the hell is blocking for him?”

    Sorry, just had to vent.

    I’m not happy about Hawaii’s record (1-4), but c’mon, a little common sense please…….!!!

    275 tommui, totally agree that trust trumps past acts. (Also need to give a nod here to who[m]ever is keeping Wikipedia up to date.

    In searching out the information to reply to Moocher’s 234, it was informative to identify certain must-airs and positioning on which she and the handlers focused. One supposes those might’ve been a clue, or maybe they were subtle enough then that they are more visible in retrospect. By this I don’t mean the earlier financial stuff, although that should have prompted direct inquiry by the hiring body. More the atmospherics — tenor and tone, if you will.

  289. manoa#1 October 8, 2012 7:10 pm

    #284 i hear you. like i said earlier chow is full of it.

  290. Moocher October 8, 2012 7:12 pm

    again….ANY quarterback looks good in the past system.

    rolo…nfl, nope

    robinson…nfl, nope

    chang…nfl, nope

    brennan…nfl, nope

    moniz…nfl, nope

    in large, the system made those quarterbacks look better. no matter who we plugged in, they did well. but NONE could do well outside of that system and at the next level.

    so here we have a new system and frankly, shroeder is the best fit. this current system is boring, chow already stated compared to the run and shoot it would be. besides, any other quarterback will have receivers that cant get open or separation, receivers that still drop balls, running backs and receivers that do not maintain blocks, o-line that is non consistent–wake up, shroeder is but a small part of the problem. it’s like putting shroeder in a yugo and telling him to win nascar. although he can drive and knows what to do, the rest of parts just are not there-so what…blame the driver???

  291. Bleed Green and White October 8, 2012 7:15 pm


    So (#290) – only if you make it into the NFL as a QB are you any good?

    Is that what you’re saying?

    So none of those guys, Rolo, Chang, Brennan, Moniz…none of them are worth a darn….?

    Please tell me you’re kidding?

    286. no mr grease, i thought your post was the answer. i been trying to figure it out.

    Whoa. This is like part of the Inception original script.

    You know, folks . . . Norm Chow’s Inside Access provides some good reasoning, good information about where the football Warriors are now, as expounded upon by Chow and by Mr. Tsai.

    Chow’s working from the ground up. I mean, this is a REMINDER to all of us. Some of you are fixated too much on the “blowout” factor. Chow has to be given a chance to do things his way. Ship’s cap’n.

    Stephen Tsai . . . he give a good, objective view of things in his reporting role.

    We don’t need a 12-0 season going into a major bowl in order to . . . believe. Remember “believe”?

    Anyway. This season’s looking as if it will be divided into two groups — those who think Coach Chow should be given a chance as new head coach for the Warriors and those who call for his resignation after just one season. We’ll see who wins by the end of, say, January.

    graves or any other player is free to go.

    steele jantz? stump mitchell?

    if it sounds cold…yes it could be. you don’t play someone because you feel bad for them, you play them because they earned it and you have faith in them.

    i like graves a lot. and yes it is a bummer for sure. he had a choice to stay or go. not an easy one and i can appreciate that. but i’ll submit this to ponder:

    colt brennan could have turned pro after his junior year-looking back he should’ve. he CHOSE to stay at hawaii and things did not work out for a future in football.

    graves CHOSE to stay here while others left. and sadly, it’s not working out for him. this is where maybe i am different. i would tell graves thank you for thinking about me, the school, the fans, but at some point you need to think of yourself. and just as you want to support us, we will support you no matter what you decide.

    david was #1 in spring, he had his shot. he needs to dig deep, search, and go for it balls to the wall whatever it is. i’m a fan of graves and i do hope he plays but to say he is better then shroeder in this system…well, i just don’t see it.

    Um – #293 – I apologize, you were right

  296. Moocher October 8, 2012 7:34 pm


    nope….just saying we got used to seeing great performances. and no matter how good we saw them to be, we have to admit, in part, it was the system that made them look good.

    the system we are in now, it’s not going to make ANY quarterback look good as the run and shoot did.

  297. Why Schroeder? October 8, 2012 7:44 pm

    Since you asked Green & White: Youtube 2011 BYU vs. Hawaii Sr. Game. Top 3 receivers: Davis 6 receptions 111 yards, Ostrowski 6 receptions, Stutzman 6 receptions. All here. I’m tired of people bagging on our receivers. By the way, we had 3 touchdowns that game. Everyone talks about the 11 starters we lost. Guess what, that happens almost every year to every college team. Let’s not dis the kids that have been here to spin everything in Chow’s favor. He doesn’t walk on water, and by the way not too many 18 year olds even know who he is, so his name won’t mean much with 1 or 2 win seasons. This is not a throw away year.

  298. kev-1 October 8, 2012 7:44 pm

    Alawai 229,

    Those are interesting. Kinda toned down for UA, I think. I can’t make out what is on the helmet. Zero school colors on them though. Pretty sure most other schools have their school colors in theirs in the past. Hawaii blue?

  299. Bleed Green and White October 8, 2012 7:53 pm

    (Why Schroeder)

    In response: The systems are entirely different. All I’m saying is, if each individual doesn’t adapt, fit in etc, well, it is what it is.

    I have never bagged on current player, never would. But I have read people bag on Schroeder. Why?

    For what reason?

    In the coaches eyes, the kid won the QB battle. Shouldn’t that be ‘Nuff said?

    Like most UH fans, I too was thrilled by the effort Graves gave in 2011, like Tulane, that was exciting. Fact is though, I know for sure he wouldn’t have been the front runner if there was no coaching change. I guarantee you that.

    Chow credentials, be what they are, are un-matched, by any coach that has ever had the job here at UH, or has ever applied for the job here at UH. Period.

    Do I think he walks on water…? Heck no!

    But I am interested to see what he can do, what kind of players he can recruit. At least for once in the last 14 seasons, UH has a head coach that actually cares about recuiting. Specifically, local kids.

  300. Why Schroeder? October 8, 2012 7:54 pm

    Also I guess the Redskins never should have drafted RGIII because clearly he could never play in a pro-style offense. Oh wait, a mobile QB CAN take a snap from center, and a team can even incorporate plays around that players strength, ie mobility, within pro-style. Not saying Shutter or Graves are RGIII obviously, but I think the “system” talk is crazy.

  302. Why Schroeder? October 8, 2012 7:59 pm

    Let’s agree on this 299. Not cool to bag on any college athlete. Schroeder seems like a very likeable kid, and I’m pulling for him. Not bagging on him. But I think we can question coaching decisions in this forum, especially around the most important position in sports, quarterback. One thing I do like is the running game has improved. I’d really love to see Graves or Shutter have a shot, because I think we’d be better, that’s all. Out….

    Yeah, those unis are pretty Captain America-ish. Given our school color is green, I thought for sure camouflage would have been in the works. I googled for more pictures of the uni to see different angles, but only saw the one. Whatever works though, it is the cause that matters. All for the WWP. I’m down with that.

    different personnel on the line, different system that passed WAYYYYYYYYYYYY more, of course receiving totals should be decent.

    we know guys can play. but the key is can they understand and play in a new system. you cannot have one guy playing the old way and 10 others playing the new way.

    you don’t need to be the best, what you need to be is the best fit.

  307. madeinhawaii October 8, 2012 8:17 pm


    Both Rolo and Moniz have gone on to the “next” level. Both play or played in the Arena Football League… Rolo was quite successful and Moniz is enjoying some success and increasing popularity with the Georgia Force. It may not be the NFL, but it may be a stepping stone, too.

    There are new traditions in Warrior Football: “The Warrior Walk” into Aloha Stadium and the new entrance onto the field.

    It’s Homecoming week and want to be sure we let all Warriors, past, present and future know how much we appreciate them ‘leaving it all on the field’ for Hawai’i each time the step on the field of play no matter the sport.

    Just as a comparison to our Warrior fans, here is the ‘love’ the Ohio State Band gets when they take the field just for pregame:

  309. Moocher October 8, 2012 8:21 pm

    why shroeder….wrong again.

    they drafted rg3 and he WAS given a chance in a new system and did well…not to mention they spent money for him. if he didn’t work out, trade him. it was a no lose situation for them…hello???

    what part of graves WAS given his chance in a new system and it did not work out do you not understand?

    just like colt brennan WAS given numerous chances and did not succeed?

    the point is they all had their chances in a new system, some made it work some didn’t.

  311. kev-1 October 8, 2012 8:26 pm

    I’m not sure about other people’s arguments, but my reasoning for putting Graves in is not because he’s necessarily a better QB than Schroeder, but because of mobility. If the oline is struggling, mobility has to be a benefit, right? I don’t think it is insulting to Schroeder to say that. Heck, even Coach Chow said it. If we can fix the oline woes and Schroeder has more time, then great. But if the battering continues, then adjustments towards mobility need to be made. Pretty sure Shutter is mobile too.

  312. Moocher October 8, 2012 8:30 pm


    stepping stone i agree. of course i wish the best for all.

    my point was we had a system that made pretty much an quarterback look good…and we got used to that.

    the current system will not make any quarterback look good. and sadly, shroeder is unfairly getting blasted for things that are beyond his control.

  313. madeinhawaii October 8, 2012 8:30 pm

    Moocher, I get what you are saying about the RnS making the QB look better. It is the classic draft analyst argument against system QBs. In the type of offense we have now, if the QB looks really good, it is because he probably is.

    However, I still think that some of our QB’s from the old “system” were actually pretty good. Why they didn’t succeed at the next level could be attributed to many different reasons.

    We didn’t have a proper funeral for the RnS… For many of the fans, like myself, that enjoyed the RnS and saw it as part of our Branding, along with the “H”, we’re still in the withdrawal stages, moaning and bemoaning…”Oh no..” . For others, who thought the RnS should go the way of dinosaurs, they still don’t get to gloat and say.. “I told you so.” So they must be equally frustrated.

    For still others who wanted, Koetter, Anae, Rush or one of the other coaches, I can’t imagine their frustrations….

    It’s going to be a long season.

    On Scout, some are going as far to say that Schroeder agreed to come to Hawaii only if he would get to play this first year.

    We don’t get the breakdowns as to why plays didn’t work.. or did work like seasons past and, I for one, feel left in the dark.

    There are simply too many changes and it’s hard for me, at least, to wrap my mind around it all.

    i’d buy the mobility to a point.

    and i say to a point because there were a lot of times shroeder slid outside of the pocket, stepped up, rolled out and made passes at the last microsecond before getting nailed.

    let us not forget…chow brought in shroeder because shroeder knew the system…key word “knew the system.” if another quarterback knew the system, i’m sure chow wold love and utilize the added dimension of a quarterback who knows the system and can run.


  319. kev-1 October 8, 2012 8:57 pm

    318 . . . agree

  320. madeinhawaii October 8, 2012 9:02 pm

    Funny but I thought I heard Coach Chow say either in his weekly press conference or insider interview that we didn’t have a mobile QB so we can’t run those type of plays. The way he said it sounded like none of the backups counted.

  321. kev-1 October 8, 2012 9:08 pm

    mih . . . I heard him say that in reference to Schroeder. He doesn’t even seem to consider back ups at all. Then again, he has stated again and again that SS is his guy. It may be a psychological thing to protect Schroeder’s confidence, by not mentioning potential back ups.

    Bwahahaah. Hey, say what you will about Dr. Lecter’s epicurean habits, but, he can profile, mercy.

    Not to worry. A Grease likes his 3660 and Roy’s. No need for feasting on sauté

    éd brains in a Grease’s same. 😐

    Anyway, the preliminary profile of a kev-1 did not include him with childrens, so, a Grease will cease. 🙂

    It’s 10:47pm, 10/08/2012 . . . and this about the second time a Grease is watching Norm Chow: Inside Access . . . Coach Chow really looks like he can take on any and all who demand for his job.

    This vog and humidity, we cannot control, just have water by your side at all times, know we’re all in the same vog and humidity-filled, uh, boat.

    Post here. You maintain class whenever you post, Kevin, you do, certainly, so, share, we all here. We all have a degree of ambiguity while we still very much support these Warriors. Stay the course. Believe in the team. Do what you have to do in your life. Stay positive. Things will fall into place.

    Jim Kalili. Early 70s intramural basketball. 6-2, 235LB Jim on a 2-1 fast break with Glenn Hookano. Only defender 5-5, 140 lbs standing just below the free throw line. GH has the ball passes to Jim around the FT line, defender steps in front of Jim and sees his life flash before him.

    I was expecting a huge collision. Lucky for me, Jim was agile. Caught the pass took a quick step to his left and passed to ball back to GH for a layup. To this day, there’s a controversy about retelling that play. Some claim I had my eyes closed as tight as Scrooge’s ass others claim my eyes were so wide openned they thought they almost popped out of their sockets.

    Believe Jim graduated from Farrington.

  333. Moocher October 8, 2012 11:34 pm


    I was for Norwood too.

    I felt UH needed a young hungry guy who both played for the green and white and coached in a BCS conference. His wife is Tiffany Hardy, sister of Damien Hardy (UH men’s volleyball) and already having ties in the islands to me made him a stronger candidate.

    I felt Norwood because of local ties and mainland ties, including texas, would get quality players in.

    Anyway, chow it is. i love the work ethic, the discipline he brings. my concern is the losses make it hard to stick with the buy-in for the players.

    we all know defenses gel faster then offenses. the defense hasn’t and to me that is the bigger of the problem. for my tastes, losing 50-0 is really on the defense. losing 3-0 is on the offense. yet we are consistently blaming the offense for the blowouts because once upon a time we HAD an offense that was our defense…and i think many are stuck in that mindset where our offense used to be our defense.

    i look at it from this perspective.

    we average what 20 pts a game ( i know… lamar) and give up what 44? if the offense averages 20 and the defense can stop half the points it is giving up we are right about even (20-22 score) and have a good chance to pull out some wins.

    shroeder is not the problem. not being as mobile is not the problem. the D needs to take a baby step and a goal of no more then 3 touchdowns. They do that, and we’ll be in every game the rest of the season.

    New day…

    Still third person? Maybe until a new blog is up? Okay…

    Mikey, your #217 above…

    Although Wes’side spent about 4 years at Fort Ord, and had experiences up and down the California Coast, Wes’side never stopped in Capitola, on his way to the Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, or when heading up to Half Moon Bay, or San Francisco. So, Wes’side can’t really comment much on Capitola. Similarly, Moss Landing was left out… as a quick stop over for a bite to eat was a less than memorable experience. However, Cannery Row in Monterey was always fun! So was that clothing-optional beach down in Big Sur, which is why Big Sur made Wes’side’s list! Hahaha!

    Wes’side would like to thank you for the added opportunity to reminisce!

  341. maddog50 October 9, 2012 4:23 am

    Watched the replay…can not kick ball out of bounds…..can not fumble….can not drop passes….can not arm tackle….can not make silly mistakes and infractions. The effort was there and this was just a series of self-inflicted wounds. Hopefully we get a few guys back, Iosefa for one and some D Line personnel that would allow Yap….Woodard and Falemalu a chance to do more damage. A lot of times these guys are trying to make play behind the line and get caught in bad angles….nothing wrong with letting them get to the line or a few yards. These kids played like Warriors and they will get these things taken care of….I think get this one this week will put them in place to win 4 or 5.

  342. SAWARRIOR October 9, 2012 4:46 am

    the effort from our boyz are there, they play like Warriors, every game no matter what the score, no question. they ARE Warriors.

    it’s our defensive schemes i question. SDSU coaches designed plays just for their QB because we didn’t have him covered. We all saw the results, and no D adjustments on our part.

    NM runs the Pistol, with not much of a passing threat, i want to see how we scheme against their O. we have had problems with read/option offenses, this one should be interesting.

    Their QB is not the runner like BYU’s Tayson Hill, Nevada’s Farjardo or SDSU’s Katz, but we have made those guys look way better than they are, and i hope we don’t do the same for NM’s QB. of course, IMO

  343. Moocher October 9, 2012 4:56 am


    got to. i’m not happy with what’s going on. but i do believe that if the D can show up and the O keeps plugging away the W will come.

    our offense cannot be our defense as in years past. D needs to show up.

    i hate to think of what past scores would have/ could have been without edwards and ne’quan. with strong db’s, it’s natural now that teams will run more and more and more against a weaker d-line and linebackers.

    Agree with #306, Our OL are not in sync as a group. The boyz from last year is tight group even off the field. They would go hiking, beach bbq and bond together I even herd T Grahm would join them. Springball should have been the main focus on working with them to really understand the system . But sloting transfer guys in after the spring because they have experience? If they didn’t play in this offense their brining in then why are our boy (from last year) different from the transfers? Favoritism maybe. Read interesting blog on “SPORTS HAWAII” with heading “……..garbage”.

    for those interested, this is what TamaolePaka posted:

    “Sources say Sai left because he wasn’t going to start and was not good enough to start. He was Chow’a boy in Utah. The boys in Utah were laughing when they saw him as a starter vs USC and still can’t believe UH has him as a starter. Also reliable sources say OL coach is not seeing eye to eye with some of the OL players. Plays favorites and threatening players to transfer out. I think he is trying. to make room for his new recruits. My Questions is Why is he doing this if we are so thin on the OL. Good thing these transfer players improved our OL/ NOT! Is this the same coach that was with coach Chow @ UCLA?”

    If I recall, last year’s o-line had problems blocking for Moniz. Maybe the “pundits” will say it was Moniz’s fault for whatever transgression but it was not head and shoulders better than the new folks. The new folks have their problems and it is obvious, but we’re talking different stance, different schemes, different philosophy (run first). Tough to compare.

    Like someone mentioned, when things don’t meet expectations, negativity reigns. Such is the new way.

    Chow is the HC and also the Offensive Coordinator. He is on the field (sidelines) during the game.

    At one time he said that being on the sidelines is the worst seat in the house. Is there anyone up in the box relaying how the plays are going?

  357. SAWARRIOR October 9, 2012 6:51 am

    350. i said something similar on post 269.

    October 8th, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    sometimes a new HC likes to play “their” guys, players THEY brought in. coaches made no promises/commitments to players/families that another HC brought in. IMO

    I’ve seen it happen at other schools, not saying Chow is like that , but u never know. correct me if i’m wrong, but JJ’s 1st year at SMU, he started HIS recruit, Bo Levi Mitchell (true freshman) , a player he brought in instead of a returning sr starter to run HIS system.

  359. Manoa October 9, 2012 6:57 am

    When Chow first came, he had not made a decision about using more of our receivers and running the types of routes they ran, which would help the Quarterbacks and help Graves and Shutter especially– we know because he said we had talented receivers and he would try to use them and maybe run some of the run and shoot routes– which sounded good especially since he had chosen Graves as the starter then.

    But he changed his mind and went with a ball control, run first strategy and ended up not using Graves and made limited use of our receivers, including not running the patterns they are so good at.

    He is now sticking with his decision, but common sense tells me that if Chow could do it over, Chow would go with his first choice of using the receivers more and some of the running plays that got Alex Green into the NFL. That would also have used Graves skills and given time to gradually introduce his system with Graves or Schroeder.
