It’s a sign of old age when you return from a road trip, write a story, do some errands, hang out with the family and … um, was there something else I was supposed to do?
Then I woke up at 3 a.m. (which is 6 a.m. Fort Collins time) to realize … darn, I forgot to finish Sunday’s blog post.
To quote Rap Replinger: Oops, li’ dat.

Under the previous regime, the Warriors would remain on the mainland between consecutive road games. The Warriors did that last year between road games against Utah State and then Navy. Because of the relatively short distance between San Jose, this weekend’s destination and Hawaii, it made sense, academically and financially, to return to Honolulu.
The Warriors will be able to attend classes through mid-Thursday this week. So far, the Warriors have missed a total of 6.5 school days because of four road trips. For the season, the Warriors will have missed nine school days because of six road trips. The players fill the missed time with mandatory study hall and on-line work.
The Warriors will be home 96 hours from when they returned yesterday afternoon through Thursday’s afternoon departure.

The Warriors had only two available quarterbacks for the Colorado State game — Ikaika Woolsey and Beau Reilly, who has not taken a snap in a game this season. No. 3 quarterback Eric Prater remained in Honolulu to be with his wife, who is expecting the couple’s first child.
