First practice

Some tidbits from today’s first football practice of training camp:

• Left wideout Rodney Bradley practiced, insisting he had no discomfort in his surgically repaired left leg (broken fibia and tibia). But he said he had soreness in his right foot. Nothing major, he insisted, and he should be ready for tomorrow’s practice.

• Right tackle Laupepa Letuli, who received a medical hardship for a left-knee injury in 2009, appeared to be in good health.

• Defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga practiced despite a rash on his left arm that was a reaction to a Portuguese Man-O-War bite.

• Practice was extended more than an extra half-hour so players who did not complete their summer conditioning programs could run 50-yard sprints.

• Head coach Greg McMackin scolded, um, a blog host who did not notice that practice was not over. The blog host was caught interviewing players during the 50-yard sprints. As an act of solidarity, a columnist also confessed to interviewing players.

The No. 1 offense: LWO Rodney Bradley (who then was replaced by Joe Avery), LSB Greg Salas, LT Austin Hansen, LG Brett Leonard, C Bronson Tiwanak, RG Adrian Thomas, RT Laupepa Letuli, RSB Kealoha Pilares, RWO Royce Pollard, RB Alex Green. The quarterbacks rotated.

Former UH linebacker Brashton Satele recorded a first for the J-E-T-S: He was the first player to suffer an injury in training camp. But not to worry. According to our people, Satele suffered only a sprained left ankle — X-rays were negative for any fracture — and he should be good to go sooon.

Satele was injured during a kickoff drill. A teammate blocked another player, who rolled onto Satele lower-left leg. Satele had to be helped off the field.

Until then, Satele was making an impression on special teams. He even blocked a punt during a drill.

    Anyone have photos at Tasty Chop Suey with family or friends

    that has the Tasty Chop Suey logo showing on the dishes?

    Parent’s restaurant selected by Smithsonian Institute to be part of an exhibit

    that shows how chinese restaurants are a part of American history.

    They’re in the process of collecting items from New York, San Francisco, and Honolulu

    and chose Lau Yee Chai, Wo Fat, & Tasty Chop Suey to represent Hawaii.

    We’ve located some dishes, chop sticks, menu, newspaper article celebrating 20th anniversary, key chains, coin purses, and photos, but looking for more items.

    I hope that Brashton is fully healthy soon. Training camp injuries are really tough for undrafted rookies trying to make the team, as the NFL doesn’t give them much of a chance to recover before they give someone else the spot (see: RGM).

    Ah, it’s the first practice of training camp. There were practices during spring training.

    By why quibble? I’m ready for some football.

    I always thought of the preseason like mortgage payments. It’s slow at first — am I ever going to see the end? — and then it accelerates. The interest, ironically, increases when the interest (payment) decreases.

    Hey, Garret, can you check on this? I was wondering if an injured player can be cut? I mean, I suppose so, since that’s what happened to Ryan Grice-Mullins as a rookie. But I always thought there was some obligation. I’m confident Satele will be back, but if not, a “redshirt” year couldn’t hurt.

But I always thought there was some obligation. I’m confident Satele will be back, but if not, a “redshirt” year couldn’t hurt.


    Yes, injured players can be cut at anytime. Undrafted rookies that are cut while injured probably get nothing, while vets with long-term contracts get what they call an “injury settlement” where they try to figure out how much the injury cost the player in playing time. Since an undrafted rookie has no expectation of getting playing time, they get nothing.

    Technically, NFL players injured on the job cannot be cut without compensation. The standard NFL contract requires that if a player is injured on the job, and if the player promptly communicates the injury, then he is owed payment for as long as his injury prevents him from playing that season. Normally, the player’s agent and the team’s general manager try to agree on an injury settlement. They attempt to forecast the number of weeks the player would miss because of injury; the player should get paid for each week he would have played if not hurt. If the injury is long-term, the player can receive up to an additional $300,000 in recognition of not playing in the following season (that amount can be higher and for additional seasons if negotiated as such in the player’s contract).

    If the GM and agent can’t agree on the terms of a settlement, perhaps because they disagree on the existence or severity of a player’s alleged injury, the team could cut him without a settlement. Unless the player has a guaranteed payment due, the team would not owe him anything.

    Re-Today’s waves at Ala Moana Beach

    Prettiest waves that I’ve ever seen at Ala Moana Beach. Nice sets here and there with surfers riding tubes. Personally, I never did get my clumsy self on a board, but do appreciate watching. There seemed to have been a lot of surfers out there. Me, I just wade in the water, like a big fat whale.

  40. BG August 5, 2010 10:14 am

    Good morning Everyone!

    A-House/C_C (from last nite) DMSO is not FDA approved so the trainers can’t recommend it. Big medical firms won’t produce it because it’s so cheap to manufacture and so common they can’t get a patent. Learned about it in the 60’s but didn’t start using it until the 80’s when I finally found enough medical studies for me to feel safe. Lots of first hand experience with myself and friends with tennis elbow, sprains, bruises, torn ligaments, muscle soreness. Nearly instant relief. Really hard to find reliable sources for it. June Jones made reference to it once in the media that it was widely used in the NFL when he was a player. Made from sawdust. Referred to as a “solvent” because it will dissolve a lot of inorganic stuff like grease, but not organic like skin; can be taken internally.

    Sorry, gotta esme…in an experimental study for an alzheimer’s drug and had 14 blood draws yesterday. I gotta rest and concentrate on making more blood!

    I’m fortunate to see the waves at Ala Moana from our shop.

    Long time ago, mom & dad didn’t allow me to surf since my

    cousin’s head got bashed in by a board. Still love watching

    and simple swimming

  44. A-House August 5, 2010 10:26 am


    Made from saw dust, will dissolve grease but not skin and can be taken internally. Wow, that’s powerful stuff.

    Must FDA approved before trainers can recommend use to injured players? Hmmmm, if it works can use it? Reminds me of “western medicine” – if organic or cultural, don’t believe in its medicinal powers and cannot use – like, herbal medicines used successful for generations, but not approved by “western standards” or pressure points to relieve/cure ailments/pain.

  45. Don Weir August 5, 2010 10:31 am


    Luggage and baggage (equipment) is handled by Al in the Equipment Room.

    I believe players are limited to # of bags. All of the luggage and baggage is loaded into a truck on campus and then taken down to the airline and a mass check in process is done.

    When I was coaching at Punahou and we went to the Emerald City Classic in Seattle to play the same process was used but each player, cheerleader, band member, and staff had to authenticate their luggage/instrument as it was lined up out there at drive up checking. That was a mess!!

Hmmmm, now that I’m home I should be able to find the ingredients to make my Popo & Goong Goong’s linament. I should dig out the formula from a box somewhere in the pile… aiyah!

    Isn’t DMSO a sub-dermal transport vehicle such that you can mix poison into it (deliberately or accidently) and it will transport it through the skin ?

  67. A-House August 5, 2010 12:31 pm


    U crack me up –ha ha!!!!!!

  68. madeinhawaii August 5, 2010 12:41 pm


    from Wikipedia..


    Use of DMSO in medicine dates from around 1963, when a University of Oregon Medical School team, headed by Stanley Jacob, discovered it could penetrate the skin and other membranes without damaging them and could carry other compounds into a biological system. In medicine, DMSO is predominantly used as a topical analgesic, a vehicle for topical application of pharmaceuticals, as an anti-inflammatory, and an antioxidant.[citation needed]. Because DMSO increases the rate of absorption of some compounds through organic tissues including skin, it can be used as a drug delivery system. It is frequently compounded with antifungal medications, enabling them to penetrate not just skin but also toe and fingernails.

    I remember researching and testing this stuff to try and transport Collagen and/or elastin compounds under the skin. Then I realized that would be too dangerous to market if I absent-mindedly dropped something in there that was contaminated with something like botulism spores from fruits or other organic matter that I might be prepping to use. Everyone would be walking around looking like Joan Rivers.

    Cassy just won the 35th Junior PGA Championship. Gonna represent the U.S. In the Junior Ryder Cup in Scotland.

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Cassy Isagawa has won the 35th Junior PGA Championship with a par putt on the third playoff hole.

    The 16-year-old resident of Wailuku, Hawaii, defeated Ginger Howard of Bradenton, Fla., at Sycamore Hills Golf Club on Thursday.

    Both finished the 54-hole tournament at 3-under 213 after shooting final-round 69s on the Jack Nicklaus-designed course that hosted the tournament for the first time. Isagawa watched her birdie putt from 8 feet lip out on the second playoff hole before capturing the title.

    “I was really nervous all three playoff holes,” Isagawa said. “I’ve never been that nervous my whole life. When my putt lipped out on 17, I told myself, ‘It’s OK, I have the 18th and I have played that hole enough this week,'” Isagawa said.

  105. Garret August 5, 2010 3:36 pm

    I’m happy when any WAC school upgrades itself or finds way to get more money for their Athletic programs, since that strengthens the conference and benefits UH. I think that it is great that Pat Hill took such a big pay cut and will help Fresno State with their budget problems.

    The incentives in his contract are worth more than his salary, and they aren’t easy incentives to reach–for example, he’ll only get $250k of his incentives if he gets to the national title game. I wish UH went to more incentive-laden contracts instead of guaranteeing salaries.

    The three-year deal Pat Hill signed this week to remain Fresno State’s football coach through 2013 could effectively cut his total cash compensation by about 28%, saving the athletic department about $310,000 per year.

    “He knew money was getting tight,” athletic director Thomas Boeh said. “This helps us create sustainability because it directly links success and compensation together and, therefore, when there is success that results in increased revenues, those increased revenues are distributed according to this schedule.”

  106. d1島 August 5, 2010 3:38 pm

    twitter was made for a guy like Mouse Davis…

  107. Garret August 5, 2010 3:41 pm

    Hill was supposed to earn $1.1 million this season and will now have a $650k base salary and will have incentives he can earn if he has a good season. That contract is a good example for the rest of the WAC that is struggling to balance their budgets.

    Fresno State actually only has to pay $258k of Hill’s salary, the rest comes from their nonprofit auxiliary organization.

  108. Garret August 5, 2010 3:41 pm

    Remember, BSU’s Petersen took a pay cut before this season…if he’s taking a pay cut, *nobody* is exempt from taking pay cuts.

  109. d1島 August 5, 2010 3:43 pm


    You’re sounding more and more like the *owner* of a company! 😉

  110. Garret August 5, 2010 3:44 pm

    Are all 6 other QBs working with the WRs and Moniz with the OL, or are Austin/Rausch/Graves working with the WRs and Moniz with the OL?

    Maybe Moniz is working with the OL because UH has to find a replacement center since the starter is out?

  111. Garret August 5, 2010 3:45 pm


    When times got tight I cut *my* salary first. Even though I wrote the proposals that brought in all the money, and all the work was based on my inventions, all the people working under me earned within $2 per hour as me.

    I know what it is like to take a pay cut. I set that example for my company.

    I am definitely ready for some football!!

    One other thing… despite all the obstacles Colt has faced, he’s always remained so optimistic and positive. Really an inspirational story. I hope he gets a chance to show what he’s got. Just wish someone would give him a chance. Hang in there, Colt!

    Excited to be at the first practice..all players were on the field at 1:30. At 1:45 they all did a very structured stretch/warm up for 15 minutes. They broke up into individual groups and started a lot of technique drills and some special teams. I watched Mouse work with the receivers and was very impressed. The guy has the great football voice. You can hear him from one end of the field to the other. He was working with getting off the line properly and footwork. All the QB’s looked good throwing as they should. Spain has a way about him that does catch your eye. Also Bright looks to be a real find. Bradly shows no signs of his injury. Had to leave early so that’s it….Lots of enthusiasm as would be expected. Plus, it was real hot…………………

  120. papajoe2 August 5, 2010 5:02 pm

    Congrats Cassie! Speaking of gohu, commentators trying to be nice but, Tiger is stinking up the place on the gohu channel. He’s beaning towers and trees while shooting +4 with more holes to play in the first round. Cannot make any putts. In fact, some putts not even close by Tiger standards.

    Stretch – I believe that last year when the funds were split amongst various sports programs in and outside UH, the average per game take was $35. Assuming the same take this year, we talking about around $250. if we stick it in the Tsai-ko fund rather that a particular team’s fund, then we would have to think about what could be used by all the sports.

    Tiger 74th after 14 holes at +5 in the 1st round after missing a short par putt. There are no cuts in this tournament so he will have to finish all 4 rounds. I think there are only 80 players so he’s almost in last place.

    Went to the UH football practice today and what a beautiful Hawaiian day. Real hot, lots of sunshine, and the players will definitely get in shape and be ready for the humidity. Players were in their position groups and working on fundamentals and techniques. I was sitting close to the defensive backs and in particular the cornerbacks when they broke up with the safeties. Would have been nice to know who the players are from the numbers. Some of the obvious names to the numbers are easy to spot but I could not tell most of them. I knew Lametrius Davis was #2. I thought Jeremy Bryant was #8, but may he #18. I wanted to find out who was Dee Maggitt and John Hardy-Tuliau and who was Allen Sampson. I was watching #2 on offense and thought he might be Sampson. He was short, but had a great burst and caught everything from the slot position. But, I wasn’t sure if he was him. A cornerback, #11 w/ good height caught my eye. He was very quick. Miano was teaching him a lot so I figured maybe he was a freshman, but I don’t know. Help us out. Give us the numbers of the jerseys so we know who we are looking at. This is the first time I’ve been to a practice in a long time and I enjoyed it. The players looked to be very enthusiastic and the practice was well organized with very little time wasted. I had to leave about 3:45 p.m.

    I could hear Tony Tuioti very loudly. He was into it. And Rich Miano was doing a lot of teaching and showing the cornerbacks to be in the right position and how to use the right leverage. I liked that. The passing drills were very efficient. 4 QBs were thowing on every play, one to each receiver. Other than Moniz, #17, Austin #10, and Rausch #16, I couldn’t tell who was Shutter, Graves, or Spain.

  132. wafan August 5, 2010 5:47 pm

    Thanks for the field reports!

  133. tom mui August 5, 2010 5:48 pm

    DEREK: Got tied up otherwise …

    Looking at the to-be AL’s Media Guide, #8 is Bryant; no number on the roster for Maggitt, Hardy-Tuliau or Sampson – Sampson is listed at 5’8″. No #11 listed. #4 is Shutter, #9 Graves and no number listed for Spain.

    Mike Cherry just reported that practice tomorrow is 4 p.m., but both DR’s & ST’s schedules have an 8:30 a.m. time posted.

    ST, could you confirm, please.

    Bubba Poueu-Luna was pretty fast in the 50-yard sprints.

    I guess I was bad, too, since I was talking to some O-linemen on the side while their teammates were running sprints. They said that they can use Chinese linament for their owwies. Maybe I’ll talk to the trainer…

  138. Slugger August 5, 2010 6:39 pm


    #2 is Allen Sampson on offense. He has a blond mohawk under the helmet.

    Darius Bright on offense is #18. Great height, and good hands.

    Jeramy Bryant is #8.

    Steven Christian on D is #11. I’ll need to look for him.

    Shutter #4, Graves #9, Spain #11.

    I ‘begged’ & got a roster from Derek Inouchi. I’ll make some copies.

    sj-macro, are you going to be at any practices soon?

    So toward the end of practice with the QBs, Salas catches a pass and pulls it into his body, protecting it…I was wondering why he did that… Gotta show the coach you’re learning & listening. You can hear Mouse, Tormey & Miano sitting on the side of the field. It’s fun!

  152. Garret August 5, 2010 8:38 pm

    According to Tombo’s blog, SportsHawaii, and a blog in Australia, Blake Muir accepted a grayshirt offer to UH and would enroll at UH in 2011, most likely playing offensive tackle. However, Hawkpeter mentioned that Blake would be flying with his parents to Hawaii to meet Coach Shaw, who they weren’t able to meet with during their previous trip.

  153. Garret August 5, 2010 8:40 pm

    The reason I bring this up is that it appears that Blake has offers from UH and SMU and has given a verbal commit to *SMU*. I’m curious as to what happened during Blake’s meeting and whether or not UH was still interested in him, since if you read this SportsHawaii thread it sure sounds like a done deal…but if you click on my name you’ll see that has his verbal to SMU.

    I would think that Hawkpeter would know about what is up with Blake. He brought Blake over for the PIIA combine. Blake was a DE back then. I remember after watching his video last year I mention that the oline he went up against was the worst I had ever seen. Hawkpeter said that the youth division he was in was very poor but that he was going to move up to the senior division which provided better competition. I also mentioned at that time that I thought that Blake may be better off at OT. He replied at that time that it may be a possibility that he would play OT and or TE.

    We have been able to confirm with sources within the program that SMU received it’s 17th commitment of the 2011 class in Australian Blake Muir.

    This is a commitment that is a very big surprise to everyone inside the program and to many people following the program.

    In addition to the three articles in the Star-Advertiser today, UH has this article up on their website. It is great to have practices begin!

  167. Garret August 6, 2010 4:02 am

    All of the media coverage about UH’s practices is great and I’m glad that the practice started early and that ST mentioned how the practice went into a 45-minute overtime. The only thing that I’m worried about is that the NCAA limits how many minutes a team may practice during camp and if they are going over the planned times does that mean they are going over the limit?

    Mack has said many times that they plan out every minute in practice in advance. UH would be planning to use the maximum amount of practice time allowed, of course. So, does going beyond the plan amounts pose a problem for UH as camp goes along? Michigan, West Virginia, and others have gotten in trouble for things related to this recently.

    Good morning Garret. Meant to ask you if you had any current DOD proposals in the works.

    Also, on the ones that you were awarded a contract, how long did it take you to finalize the paperwork? If you weren’t so busy, I’d ask you to look at what my partner and I have submitted in the VA Innovative Technological Competion. He’s been invited to DC to meet with the review board. We’re hopeful. Just wanted to cover all the bases before he leaves.

    Will you be traveling to West Point for the game with Army?

    Good Morning Tsaiko Family! It’s been awhile!

    I was very sorry to hear about Florida Ted. I really enjoyed reading his posts. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family.

  186. Ronnie August 6, 2010 7:05 am

    Happy belated birthday wishes to all of our July Tsaikos!

    Garret ~ Thanks, I understand ‘crazy.’ Will talk to you later in private.

    Maui Boy ~ You know that if you stay tuned to the blog somebody will always give you an answer.

    I can tell you this. If you schedule your flight to arrive early (like, 10 AM)…you can park FREE with the Tsaiko grill team. Walk to the stadium with the

    group, come back after and party on!

    Send me an email for the directions & details at

    Hi Kekoa!

    I’m at work now, but I should be home by 4:30 Cali time. I got your voicemail, but have been in the middle of 80 hour work weeks – which hopefully ends today (until next time).

    lots of help you are. if the company around here is not up to your standards then why do you even bother being here?


    i don’t think the stadium has posted the gate times. maybe you can give them a call.

    ChopSueyBoy ~ As many times as our family ate at your parent’s place, I’m sorry to report that I don’t have anything of record to share with you.

    Spending time at my grandpa’s place above Lanakila park gave us opportune time at both restaurants on School street. Now I’m ‘ono’ for Chinese food at 0800 AM in the morning!

    ST on the BC show at the top of the hour

  200. Slugger August 6, 2010 7:55 am

    Good Friday morning!!!

    So, is there practice this morning at 8:30?

    Practice was extended more than an extra half-hour so players who did not complete their summer conditioning programs could run 50-yard sprints.

    I wonder if the conditioning time for the sprints is outside of the normal football training period. The summer conditioning they did was with Tommy Heffernan. That’s what it sounds like from what Stephen wrote.

  201. Slugger August 6, 2010 7:57 am

    Wow! Thanks, LK! I am on time to listen to the BC show w/ ST. How’s that for writing w/ initials…

  202. Slugger August 6, 2010 8:00 am

    OK, it sounds like BC said there is practice this morning. Guess I’ll walk up there after the interview.

    curveball, you going?

    Good morning everyone!

    Maui Boy has posted occasionally since July 2007. However, he has not been mentioned by our Maui party hosts– whitey and duffer– nor has he attended any other Tsai-ko function I know about. Of course, Maui Boy is very welcome to attend the Tsai-ko tailgate (as is Roysan16) but there is a security/entry issue that requires direct contact beforehand… thanks Kekoa.

    Since most of the Tsai-kos do not park in the stadium lot, it is not surprising that the opening time is not common knowledge to anyone who saw his request. 😐

  205. chopsueyboy August 6, 2010 8:12 am


    shucks, thanks for checking

  206. Slugger August 6, 2010 8:23 am

    OK, off to practice!

    Esme & laterzzz….

  207. (Jesse) James August 6, 2010 8:23 am

    Good morning Tsaikos…hope all is well and everyone has a good one today…

  208. (Jesse) James August 6, 2010 8:32 am

    This one is for gramps…

  209. Kekoa (iPhone) August 6, 2010 8:50 am

    SteveM ~ Tsaiko t-gaters should also be aware of the entry password as security for the USC game will be tight, and the free parking even tighter.

    As we approach game time, the email notices will be out with all the details. As much as we’ve tried to organize(?) the essential food groups, it still borders Las Vegas buffet overload! Just bring whatevah you think is ono.

    If we have 20 food items, garrans Rob25 will try at

    least one. One thing for sure, she don’t eat nuttin’

    raw. She don’t eat animal parts, but she will drink all your wine!

    Bloggers here should make a pact to boycott any product posters try to sell on the Warrior Beat. Just seems invasive. Like a plague.
