The UH coaches indeed have calendars and they indeed have special days circled.
One of the most important is Oct. 19, when the Warriors are expected to make a full recruiting push on the mainland.
Teams are allowed 49 evaluations, when coaches can visit a school and watch a game in person. With a bye on Oct. 20, between the Oct. 13 homecoming game against New Mexico and Oct. 27 road game against Colorado State, the Warriors will be making their biggest in-season recruiting push on the mainland.
Evaluations take careful planning. For instance, the coaches were spotted at last night’s Mililani-Campbell game. That counts as two evaluations. The goal is to attend games in which both teams have college prospects. UH also has to make sure it scouts a team that doesn’t make the playoffs.

With Frank Loyd practicing again at right tackle and Jordan Loeffler expected to resume workouts on Monday, the Warriors now have some flexibility on the offensive line. Mike Milovale, who had been practicing at right tackle, worked out exclusively at left guard this past week. Ben Dew, who was the No. 1 left guard in spring practice, has been working at left tackle. And, of course, Chauncy Winchester-Makainai can play several spots.

Don’t expect UH to ease up on standards now that the season has started.
This week, two members of the so-called leadership counsel had to do the dreaded rolls for missing weight-lifting sessions. Another player had to do rolls for being a minute late to a meeting.
“We have zero tolerance,” head coach Norm Chow said.
