This Thursday, Adam Leonard will meet the press at the WAC Football Media Preview in Salt Lake City.
But today, you get to ask him questions.
The chat begins at noon. A separate post will be started at about 11:45 a.m., so don’t post any questions until then.
And Princess Leila returns as chat coordinator. Please join us.

Welcome back, Russell Yamanoha.
Yamanoha has reclaimed his position as analyst on K5’s telecasts of UH football. It says so in the UH football media guide, which was completed about a month ago, and Yamanoha said he got the official word from K5 official Dan Schmidt today.
“It’s great to be back,” said Yamanoha, who was the sideline reporter and then analyst through the 2006 season. “I missed it last year.”
While Yamanoha will offer on-the-mark comments from the booth, he’ll be missed on the sideline. Before a road game several years ago, a fan was heckling Lori Figueroa, a member of the UH travel party. Yamanoha told Nick Rolovich, who was UH’s quarterback. While warming up, Rolovich fired a pass that conked the heckler on the noodle. Oops, it slipped, or something like that, Rolovich would say later.
K5 is doing two UH road football games this season — at Fresno State and New Mexico State. Their hecklers have been warned.

C’mon, admit it. You’re in the car, you hear Na Leo’s “Friends” and you start thinking about your high school days … as a tear rolls down your cheek.
And then you’re at a UH football camp and there’s Nalani Choy, one third of the Hawai‘i’s greatest trio (sorry about that Shawn, Paula and Robert) and … is my cheek wet?
Her son, Kaha‘i, an offensive lineman, has been invited to training camp.
