The Warriors had scheduled a scrimmage today involving scout players and redshirts. But because more than 75 percent of the players said they had finals today, it was decided to cancel practice. The Warriors will have late-afternoon meetings today and tomorrow, and resume practicing Wednesday. At that time, it is hoped, the scrimmage will be played.
UH head coach Greg McMackin said it was more important for the Warriors to focus on academics. The Warriors missed 20 school days because of travel this season. McMackin said the coaches have crafted a game play for the Dec. 24 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, and that the Warriors will be prepared for Tulsa.

From the Tulsa World: “(Wide receiver Trae) Johnson said he doesn’t know much about Hawaii except for the grass skirts.”
Yes, yes. And we don’t know much about Tulsa except for the dust storms.

Anyone else think UH should start selling season tickets next week? It would be right before Christmas, and the Warriors are as popular as they are going to be.
It also would be a good idea if the Hawaii Bowl sold tickets to the banquet. I think fans would like to be part of that.
