On the move

It’s moving day for the Warriors, who will check into the Moana Surfrider Hotel at 5 p.m.
Because the Warriors are officially on the bowl clock, every team member — including the non-scholarship players — are invited to the training-table meals.
Today’s breakfast speciality was beef curry, in addition to the usual egss and various meats.
Kealoha Pilares was at full speed during the drills today. He was used at running back. Ryan Mouton also appears to be physically fit. His left ankle is heavily wrapped, but he’s not wearing an ankle brace.

The first day of class. The first time we met our prom date’s father. Heck, probably the first time we posted on a blog.
We stammer. We fumble for words.
In describing his winning catch against Nevada, wideout Malcolm Lane told a news-conference audience he wanted it “badder” than the defensive back. (Ryan Mouton leaned over and said the word should be “more.”)
And that should have been that.
Except the comment was replayed during the highlight video at the team banquet.
Since then, teammates often yell out the phrase. During yesterday’s scrimmage, linebacker Adam Leonard jokingly implored the defensive players to “want it badder.”
Solomon Elimimian, an English major, said: “I don’t know how you make a mistake like that. Badder. Is that even a word? We thought he was talking about a cake.”
Lane said: “I’m not used to being on TV like those big-shot guys like Adam and Solly. When I got up there, I was a little nervous. I usually don’t speak like that. I’m usually very proper. I didn’t notice it until Mouton said something. He was right beside me, and he kept saying, ‘more.’ It was a spur-of-the-moment thing. I wasn’t even really thinking.”
He said everything had died down until the banquet when the KGMB-produced video was shown.
“That’s when everybody really paid attention,” Lane said. “It’s like a slogan now. I guess I’m popular around here.”
And how long will the heckling persist?
“We’ve got seven days to remember the ‘badder,'” Leonard said. “After that, we’ll let it go.”

Yes, letter winners apparently still get actual letters. Here’s Inoke Funaki holding up his well-deserved “H” letter:

    Samson doesn’t seem to be worried about playing in snow this Sunday.

    Fair enough. Sunday’s temperatures at Arrowhead Stadium might not faze most of the roster. But what about center Samson Satele? The native of Kailua, Hawaii, didn’t see snow for the first time until the 2007 scouting combine in Indianapolis.

    ”This game is much bigger than the weather,” Satele said. “It’s not about being cold. It’s about winning. And actually, I like playing in the cold. I keep the AC at 60 at night when I sleep.”

    When are we going to hear about the JC signings? The first day they could FAX stuff was yesterday and ST said that we’d hear something today.

  17. lava December 18, 2008 7:39 am

    News on the latest goings on is great, but even badder than that I need some news on the recruits. The credits transferring? The transfer credit approver needs a brownie.

    Hilarious story about the guys correcting Lane.

  18. djmitcho December 18, 2008 7:44 am

    Good Morning All! Well here in Spokane the snow and streets are getting “badder” by the minute. Measured the snow on the wall at work and it was at 16 inches. I’ll post pics when I get home from work. Usually there are 20 of us here at the office. Today 5. If you don’t have a 4×4 or all wheel drive, you will not be going anywhere. While the main streets are decent, the side roads are horrible.

  19. Jay December 18, 2008 7:45 am

    Morning Tsaikos,

    I was up all night thinking about making a sign so I can get on the ESPN broadcast. I was thinking maybe “ESPN ME” or “NOTRE WHO?”

    I need more ideas that would get me on TV (so vain yeah?).


  20. djmitcho December 18, 2008 7:45 am

    I tried to send the last post multiple times, but kept getting error messages. Must have had too much snow on it.

  21. wafan December 18, 2008 7:49 am

    dj . . .

    The lines must be shivering.

    16″?!?! Wow. Up north they have 24″ and it is still coming down. I cannot wait until tomorrow when it will finally stop snowing.

  22. wafan December 18, 2008 7:52 am

    Like Kekoa said on the last blog it is amazing the Hawai’i transplants do okay while those who grew up with this stuff always seem surprised.

    Just common sense!

    Find it. Use it. HA!

    Apparently the roads have gone from worse to badder.

    Dang. When it starts to thaw then freeze at night it will definitely be more badder.

    Congratulations to the Te’o family on Manti Teo being named high school athlete of the year by Sporting News Magazine (http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=498250 ).

    After the way Funaki was treated by the UH, I would be really surprised to see any more Samoan or Tongan kids from Laie or from the LDS play for UH.

    Funaki, a true Polynesian warrior, showed he was better than that, the pettiness and childishness that pervades the attitudes of the UH coaching staff. Congratulations also to Funaki for rising above it all.

  47. Hilo Rain December 18, 2008 10:08 am

    Malcom Lane-

    Thnks for being a good sport about your commentat the post game conference. All kidding aside, be assured that we all know and are grateful that your catch won the game. Mahalo.

  48. what's wrong December 18, 2008 10:17 am

    What’s wrong with you uce2?

    You think you are helping the Polynesian community with your ridiculous stories that you seem to make it in that limited, prejudiced, mind of yours?

    You cause more damage with your stories that are untrue and yet you expect more local kids to stay home. Who dropped you off the table? Who threw you under the bus? If they did, you had it coming from the sounds of the b/s that spews from your lips.

    You are more of a detriment to our Polynesian brothers and sisters than anything else.

  54. bstunna2002 December 18, 2008 10:27 am

    uce I don’t know if you watch any UH games or not but if you did you would know that Funaki started half of the games this season. So what attitude from the coaches are you talking about because they replaced him with a “haole guy” from the mainland let’s face it reality is Inoke is a great guy I love the leadership he shows and is always a team player with that being said he is really not the right qb for the offense we run if we ran a pistol offense similar to Oregon then he would be a perfect fit I mean he had at least 15 interceptions this season were the coaches supposed to continue to use him and possibly lose games? Stop with the in coaches don’t like poly kids stuff it’s getting real old post something of substance not a conspiracy theory.

  64. Uce2 December 18, 2008 10:49 am

    No body said you had to like or agree with my comments. Personally, I encourage all Samoan and Tongan youth from Hawaii and abroad that I speak to and with to go play for Pac 10 teams instead of the UH, at least until the UH gets more Samoan and Tongan coaches or at least until UH gets itself some coaches who know how to identify the best players and then play the best players.

    We have in our midsts former NFL pros like Al Noga, Mike Ulufale, Maa Tanuvasa, Chris Fuamatu-Maafala, and many others, an abundance of college level coaching talent, essentially, guys who have been to “The Show”, guys who could easily coach a lowly WAC team like the UH, yet despite this fact, the UH continually goes outside to look for a HC. Except for Miano, a good coach and someone who has the requisite qualifications, in my opinion, to be a great HC for UH, have any of the other assistant or associate coaches been to “The Show”.

    You can’t tell me without looking ridiculous that high performing athletes like those named above do not know how to coach college level players or that they couldn’t do a better job than Fat Mack and his apple dumpling gang.

  66. A-House December 18, 2008 10:55 am


    #1: I support Bighhilofan2 suggestion to get ESPN involved in some “free” advertisment on the near completion of Cooke Field as we saw it on KITV sports last night. They can do another “take” of the fully completed field when they return for the PRO Bowl.

    It can turn out to be a major boost in getting recruits who are sitting on the fence, local and mainland, to see what is changing at UH to improve lower campus facilities for all students, athletes, and community.

    Nationally, it will dispell the notion that UH still has “crummy” facilities and is unable to gather support from the Legislature and Community.

    After all, was it not ESPN who did a little “negative” publicity after Colt’s public statements about the soap and facilities? Let them now see and show everyone that UH is making changes!!!!!!

    #2: Is it Coach Mack’s position NOT to release any LOI commits until all the LOI’s are in? Many of us are chomping at the bit to see who really wants to be a Warrior.

  67. LizKauai [Believer] December 18, 2008 10:58 am

    Uce2- while we all have individual opinions and may not always agree, the purpose of our presence on The Warrior Beat is to support the University of Hawaii athletics program.
    Constructive criticism is something I appreciate – name-calling and slams I see as more a reflection on the writer than those written about.
    If your purpose is to be mean-spirited, the message is received. If your purpose is to improve the opportunities for players at UH, I’m having a hard time understanding what you mean.

  68. Esme December 18, 2008 11:10 am

  70. Rob25 December 18, 2008 11:16 am


    Thank you for your contribution.


  71. Uce2 December 18, 2008 11:20 am

    Each of us supports the UH in different ways. That your approach is different from mine does not make your approach better than mine or my approach better than yours.

    The end result we are all seeking, of course, is the same end result: a successful UH program. You choose to be a cheerleader for the UH while I choose to comment about areas where the UH could use some improvement. That my comments might be taken to be too opinionated or too aggressive is understandable given the posture you have chosen to take for your self – that of cheerleader, waving pom poms and wishing for all the best while staying away from making any comments which might remove the cheerleader banner from your personality on this blog and which might incur the ire of the other regular bloggers. You are concerned about being liked whereas I am not concerned about being liked. Never have been; never will be.

    Hey, some of us are cheerleaders while some of us are players, doers, movers. Which one are you?

  72. djmitcho December 18, 2008 11:22 am

    Being a great player does not always translate into good coaching. Just because someone played in the NFL doesn’t mean they can coach. It takes something special to be a coach. It’s not all x’s and o’s. Part of being a coach at the college and even the high school level is also being able to teach life lessons. I believe that Coach Mack and staff have that extra something to bring to the table. Coach Mack has a great record of producing high caliber NFL players wherever he has coached at the D1 level.

  73. Kekoa December 18, 2008 11:25 am

    Hiya Liz! Feel like a dried fish right about now? Or are you still soaking?

    I too have a hard time understanding what Uce2 is trying to say.

    Does he want an all-Poly team, with all-Poly players & coaches? Hmm…pretty tall order in a not-so-perfect-world.

    Perhaps we should go with only the ‘chosen’ ones who are good Poly people but not quite football talented enough to carry a team.

    …and the ex-NFL greats who would make fine coaches, do they get to start at the D-1 level automatically?…or do they need to qualify themselves first as coaches? We could just assume they can step in and do the job. I’m quite sure some have tried and now choose NOT to, for obvious reasons…ya gotta win! It’s expected.

    I’m jez askin’…I keep my distance from foreign influence and try not to stray too far away from the ceded lands.

  74. jm2375 December 18, 2008 11:29 am

    Kekoa – #73 right on!! Sometimes the best coaches are not the best players. Coaches need to be teachers and motivators and we’ve all had teachers that were good in their profession but couldn’t teach and/or motivate. And why is the Pac-10 any different? They don’t have any Polynesian coaches either.

  75. djmitcho December 18, 2008 11:31 am

    If you are a doer, then maybe you should apply to be a coach at a D1 school somewhere and show UH how it is done.

    Maybe players like Manti are looking to expand their horizons and try something different. As much as I would like to see every local star play at UH, maybe it’s not what they want. Maybe a school that offers them a scholarship has a course of study that UH does not have or may be better than what UH has to offer. There are too many kids in Hawaii who have not had the chance to see what opportunities lie outside the borders of Hawaii besides disneyland and vegas. If going to somewhere besides UH helps them do that, then good for them.

  76. Uce2 December 18, 2008 11:33 am

    You are granted a hall pass on this one. No need to try to understand. You likely wouldn’t get it given what you just admitted to in your last post. Better for you to stick with playing music, making poi, and dancing the hula. Leave the football playing to us.

  77. bstunna2002 December 18, 2008 11:35 am

    so when we talk about the “show” why would you degrade coach mack he’s coached in the show obviously if NFL didn’t need coaching they would pay hc 5 million a year. What mack brings to the program is the same thng JJ brought the business side of the sport, the professionalism these kids will experience if they make it to the NFL. How can you expect the guys you mentioned to become a college coach without any experience. As far as I know the only one coaching is Ma’a as for Chris he jus stopped playing a few years ago all the coaches in the staff have college coaching experience. There a difference between having pride in culture and being ignorant.

  78. LizKauai [Believer] December 18, 2008 11:37 am

    Hi Kekoa- we’re still soaking. Although it seems the sun MIGHT peep out from behind the clouds for a minute or two!

    Thanks for your reply Uce2. Am I correct in understanding that your purpose is to support UH? I’ll reflect on your assessment of me… I haven’t really considered that trying to keep a positive attitude was being concerned about being liked. I deal with haters every day… 😈 –
    For real though… these days are a good as any for some personal feedback from someone who may or may not know me.

    Stephen Tsai – Where is ND staying?

  88. letsgowarriors December 18, 2008 11:46 am

    hes supposed to make a decision between hawaii and byu at 2pm cali time. all signs point to him going to byu, but hopefully he goes with his gut. i know tsai has never confirmed lee as a recruit, but im still hoping we get him.

    17 career JC picks, hard to ignore.

  89. Stephen Tsai December 18, 2008 11:50 am

    Notre Dame is staying at the Sheraton. The Irish arrive tomorrow night.

  90. Stephen Tsai December 18, 2008 11:53 am

    While the names mentioned would be good college coaches, at least one of them was approached. But, as it turned out, he did not have his college degree and could not be hired.

  91. Uce2 December 18, 2008 11:53 am

    Who anyone here is unimportant. What is important is whether or not they have something interesting or informative to contribute. If yes, great. If not, oh well. All this childish talk about “prove this and prove that” is old and tired. I am long past the point in my life where I have to prove anything to anyone. My days of having to prove myself are long gone.

    For those who issue challenges like some that have been issued here, leave the challenges for the school yard. This here is a not a school yard. Who has the bigger stick and whether or not they can prove it moves the discussion from grown up commentary and discussion to the realm of child’s play.

    I am not interested in child’s play. If child’s play is what you are seeking, go talk to Kekoa or some other person on this blog. I have nothing to prove. Understand. I do offer, however, critical commentary on what I see as things UH needs to do to build a better program.

    Happy holidays to you all. My time is up. Gotta run.

  92. Stephen Tsai December 18, 2008 11:54 am

    Gee. Not one mention of my photographic skills?
    By the way, one coach, who shall remain anonymous, referred to a television reporter today as “Liz Chang.”
    I guess he was confused with the former UH quarterback, Timmy Chun.

  93. Stephen Tsai December 18, 2008 11:56 am

    I try not to identify anyone as a recruit until they verbally commit. Competition reads our blog regularly, you know.

  94. letsgowarriors December 18, 2008 11:58 am

    yup, i totally understand. i think he is a mid year transfer so he’ll probably sign his LOI today. i hope you’ll be writing an article on him tomorrow…LOL

  95. Kazz December 18, 2008 12:02 pm

    Making unproven remarks of favoritism and racism on UH staff is pretty much child’s play isn’t it?

  97. madeinhawaii December 18, 2008 12:02 pm

    Since when has coaching in Hawaii become an ethnic issue? Or football, for that matter.

    I want to see the best coaches we can afford, coaching. Moreso, I would like to see them with UH connections (eg alumni), not just ‘Hawaii’ connections. I could care less for their ancestry. What’s more important is how good they are in developing our young athletes athletically and academically, and opening doors for them in the real world…football and/or career.

  98. Pomai December 18, 2008 12:08 pm

  99. al. December 18, 2008 12:08 pm

    lee aguirre is one who fell under the radar, don’t know why with all his credentials. could be that he was under the 5’10” minimum standard for big time cornerbacks.
    the warriors have had a long successful history with the undersized cb, abe elimimian, lewis, newberry, mouton, etc.
    you never know.

    So, while watching practice today, we’re all thinking: UH needs more DTs next year.
    Reggie Torres was there. He said Tachibana, who joins the team next month, is actually faster than Paipai.

  102. djmitcho December 18, 2008 12:11 pm

    What you contribute is not informative or intresting to anyone here. It seems all you have to say isn’t even constructive criticism. Your critical commentary is just bad mouthing others. If you have such strong feelings, maybe you should address them to those in the UH administration and not those who are here to support the student-athletes that are representing UH.

  106. Kazz December 18, 2008 12:18 pm

  107. al. December 18, 2008 12:20 pm

    yup….nice pix.

    yup, the critical needs are dt’s and db’s.

    i am still thinking a certain oline project would do well back at his old dline position alongside a former jc teammate next year. along with masch, the three could provide the needed influx of new interior types.

    to compliment meatoga, keahi watson, tufaga, rocky, et al. perhaps have ieru flip to the d again.

    You are concerned about being liked whereas I am not concerned about being liked. Never have been; never will be.

    Brother, have faith. I’m pretty sure someone liked you somewhere once.

    But this issue about Mack and company being racist is a losing argument. You still haven’t answered the question about how many Polynesian coaches and players are on the team. Why not?

    Oh, and last thing, brother. There is no excuse for being rude and condescending.

    Kazz, you just made al poop his pants.

  112. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc December 18, 2008 12:33 pm

    First of all, calling names – Fat Mack – is neither productive nor instructive. Still, I have to say right here that it bothers me to see how out-of-shape some of the coaches and athletic administrators are because I do not want to see them drop dead – but I would never mock them since what good would that do?

    If I were a parent of an extremely talented athlete – actually I was but she used her brains to get a full-ride academic scholarship – but if I have a highly-talented grandson, my advice to him in helping make decisions would be to select a school based upon both academics and athletics equally. I would also encourage him to go to a new place to meet new people and learn new things.

    Our grandsons are 7 (this coming Tuesday) and 9 years old (10 in February) and love soccer, tennis & swimming. I doubt if either one will ever play beyond youth leagues, but one never knows. Still, their parents and we will support them no matter what.

    Most college-level athletes will never play in any professional sport. That’s why academic success is so important. Of the 120 young men listed on the program, how many will playing in the NFL next season.

    Take a look around at the inner-city African-American college athletes in NCAA basketball & football programs or the Hispanic baseball players or the mostly Caucasian rural kids in all three sports – should they be encouraged to stay close to home in order to beef up programs at nearby schools? Of course not. If they can go half-way across the country to play for a top-ranked NCAA team, then why can’t young men from Hawai`i do the same without making cracks about UH’s recruitment policies?

    As for Coach Mack’s selections for his coaching staff, I believe that more qualified individuals might have worked out better in some areas – but there’s no sense in grinding over what happening nine or ten months ago. Time was of the essence last February and March. He did what he had to do to get ready for spring practice. There ain’t no rewind button on life.

    This season is a transitional season – and all things considered, the outcome is about what I expected. Well, I am not sure which of the three games given away hurts the most – probably Utah, then Cincinnati and finally San Jose – but this is a bridge year. Next year should be even better and come the start of his third season, Coach Mack will be totally in charge and on top of all aspects of the game or he will start replacing the coaches who are under-performing starting in December, 2010.

    Granted, I am no expert in being a football coach or even an armchair quarterback, but there are certain things in common that all Chief Poobahs in business, religion, non-profits, education, and politics all have in common. And they all need three years to get everything working right according to their standards.

  113. Stephen Tsai December 18, 2008 12:34 pm

    It was weird, but we were talking about Quentin today (he’s Caryn Kunz’s cousin). I think he might give it another go in the spring. He’s still enrolled at UH. But he needs to lose some weight. He’s perfect as a nose in the 3-4, but not so much as a DT in the 4-3. As one coach said: People can’t move on him. But he can’t move, either.

  114. Stephen Tsai December 18, 2008 12:35 pm

  116. wafan December 18, 2008 12:50 pm

    Uce2 sounds like he used to support the UH but for some reason was either burned or turned off by the team or school. He/she also sounds like another person who always posts interesting comments on other stories in the HA.

    Still, I do not understand how Uce2 expects more Poly’s to go and play for UH when he consistently advises the Poly athlete otherwise. And, the issue of why the UH does not have more Poly coaches was already addressed by Mr. Tsai.

  117. FloridaTed December 18, 2008 12:50 pm

    When the word first came out about Beaver in the spring I had to see it for myself and the first thing I thought of was, “if he could develop a motor with his size, he could do some damage”… It would be like Glenn Dorsey times ten.

    I saw him completely bowl-over a few starting O-linmen in the spring and some of my friends that saw him in the spring were excited to see him in the fall, but that wasn’t the case.

    This shouldn’t have surprised me as Coach Mack wants that speed on defense.

    Hopefully it will all work out.

    Actually Uce2 got me thinking, just how important is playing in the NFL to coaching in college, so I did a little looking around and found out it doesn’t.
    I looked at just the top ten team for this year and here are the results:

    1. Florida (50) 12-1 1,602    Urban Meyer    play defensive back at the University of Cincinnati    Did not play in the NFL
    2. Oklahoma (9) 12-1 1,540    Bob Stoops    defensive back at the University of Iowa.    Did not play in the NFL
    3. Texas (6) 11-1 1,530    Mack Brown    played running back for FSU    Did not play in the NFL
    4. Alabama 12-1 1,410    Nick Saban    played DB at Kent State    Did not play in the NFL
    5. USC 11-1 1,372    Pete Carroll    played free safety University of the Pacific    Did not play in the NFL
    6. Penn State 11-1 1,259    Joe Paterno    played quarterback/cornerback Brown University    Did not play in the NFL
    7. Utah 12-0 1,225    Kyle Whittingham    played linebacker at Brigham Young University    Did not play in the NFL(played linebacker for the New Orleans Breakers of the old USFL and the Calgary Stampeders of the)
    8. Texas Tech 11-1 1,193    Mike Leach    did not play football    Did not play in the NFL (did not play football at the college level)
    9. Boise State 12-0 1,101    Chris Petersen    played quarterback at UC Davis    Did not play in the NFL
    10. Ohio State 10-2 1,069    Jim Tressel    played quarterback at Baldwin-Wallace College    Did not play in the NFL

    that’s an interesting list there pomai.

    noticed most of those guys were “skill-type” players.

    wonder how many former linemen made it to the coaching ranks… especially since a lot of people say o-linemen are oftentimes the “smartest” of all football players.

  138. Mad Dog December 18, 2008 1:52 pm

    Pomai: fantastic work regarding the non-NFL backgrounds of the coaches for the top ten college teams. I was having a similar thought a few minutes ago while munching on my sandwich. Did Dick Tomey ever play college ball? I know he played baseball, but I’m not sure he was on a collegiate gridiron.

    Well it also seems that you don’t have to have any NFL coaching experience to be a top college coach either:

    Urban Meyer    No NFL experience
    Bob Stoops No NFL experience
    Mack Brown No NFL experience
    Nick Saban 8 years coaching in the NFL 2 as HC
    Pete Carroll 14 years coaching in the NFL

    We’ve changed the time and other details for the meetup with Kamali’o NYC. Dawn will be bringing along her step-son and his wife – they’re both professional musicians.

    We’ll be at Murphy’s to watch the Giants v. Panthers game starting at 3 pm on Sunday, December 21, and then will head out to Aiea for Mexican food at El Mariachi – arriving there around 7 pm.

    If you don’t want to come to Murphy’s for the game but want to join us at El Mariachi, please do so.

    The restaurant is not easy to find so you’ll to caravan out to Aiea from Murphy’s at the end of the game if you’re not already familiar with its location. It’s located in a multi-level shopping center directly across from Aiea Medical Center and McDonald’s on Moanalua Road.

    Dawn really would love to meet up with as many Tsai-kos as possible but will be leaving for the Big Island on December 23 so she cannot make the T-Gate.

    Coach Inaba’s program at Dole Middle School has received over $250 from generous Tsai-kos – in addition to the football tickets. He’s also getting a small grant from a local foundation for his program tp help buy shoes, uniforms, equipment, and registration fees for kids whose parents cannot afford to pay them.

    Again a reminder – season ticketholders in any sport will get 50% off on up to eight men’s basektball tickets for Tuesday’s game with UC-Riverside. They did UH in last spring during the Bracketbuster’s game.

Oh and by the way us Hawaiians can do more than just play music, make poi, and dance hula, we play ball just as hard as any other Poly race out there. So easy with stereotyping brah cause you going lose that battle to.

    You no what I get one idea braddah/sistah Use2 come back here when you actually have something relevent to say other than UH should have more Samoan and Tongan players and coaches. Maybe you will be taken more seriously around these parts. But until then Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years.

    From Matt Terl’s Official Redskins Blog:
    “Colt Brennan, for example, has the 2006 Sammy Baugh Trophy tucked away somewhere. (Brennan, actually, is a bit of a fan of the slingin’ QB with the funky delivery — I had all but forgotten him watching the Baugh footage at the Hall of Fame this summer.)”

    How sweet the remembrance Slinging Sammy, who passed away today, revolutionized the game of football and the Redskins team.

    My comments are not directed or intended for consumption by people who have names like krab, or old men from southern states who bring their grandchildren into arguments to make points, or people who purport to understand irony but who in fact, when using the term, demonstrate to the rest of the world they do no know what irony means or what it is…

    My comments are directed at the UH administration folks who lurk, the policy makers at the capitol who lurk, and the other people who make decisions about UH who are lurking, not you “other” folks.

    Believe it or not, kama, there are people in this world besides yourself and your other confused cohorts. Just the other day ST reported/confirmed the mayor reads this blog.

    ah c’mon homey, you gotta remember the Mike Tyson bit they did….it was ludicrous.

    “He was amazing, just tremendously accurate. He could always find a way to throw it off balance. I’ve seen him throw the ball overarm, sidearm and underarm and complete them.”

    (Eddie LeBaron, who took over as Washington’s quarterback in Baugh’s last season, quoted in a 2002 interview)

    … sound familiar?…

    So how appropriate:

    Okay, since Kazz has taken the brave step of admitting his man-crush, I’ll also admit one of mine.

    Of course Colt holds the top spot (for non-musicians), but I knew there was a reason I loved this guy besides his talent on the field.


    on a brighter note…..thanks wm.
    and, ahem, i always knew of your mancrush with this young man.

  172. chawan_cut December 18, 2008 2:42 pm

    everyone here today who made comment, myself too, well we crossed the line and back. let’s move on now. let’s all give each other a second chance and start all over.

    after all, tis the season to be jolly….lah, lah, lah.

    so go out now and hug the first person you see and tell, “i love you man”. (or woman)

    uce2 is nothing but a troll looking to perpetuate her Nazi-ish views of Polynesians being a master race and get everyone riled up. If she really wanted to make her thoughts known to administrators, she could do so with direct emails and calls to them, as their contact info is all in the public domain instead of airing it out in this blog.

    She’s been proven wrong time and time again. And btw…Who basically spearheads UH recruiting? Oh, that’s right, some guy named Tony Tuioti…but he must be from the German Tuioti’s not the Samoan ones.

  181. Kazz December 18, 2008 3:03 pm



    I bet my hair that Ray Hisatake will be a starter on the o-line next year… well not really my hair, but I’m pretty sure.

    I see what you were referring to. At the banquet they showed a video summary put together by KGMB (well done BTW) and Hisatake was always front and center in the pre game huddles and post game huddles. Seemed like he possess a natural ability to be a leader on a team.

  182. al. December 18, 2008 3:03 pm

    yah, jack…..how ironic is that?

  183. al. December 18, 2008 3:05 pm

    kazz….i’ll bet a heineken hisatake ends the year on the dline right next to his old buddie, david hafoka. that would be awesome because i’ll bet they work extra hard to watch each other’s back.

  184. Just Saying December 18, 2008 3:06 pm

    what?? al is about to poop his pants, AGAIN??!!??

  186. Just Saying December 18, 2008 3:12 pm

    Hisatake, Hafoka, Meatoga, Savaiigaea, Tufaga, Leatigaga, a Keahi, and hopefully a 300 lb Beaver to name a few.

    Is that a Poly enough D-Tackle crew for uce2?

    Let’s throw in a Keli’ikipi for good measure.

  191. Mad Dog December 18, 2008 3:23 pm

    From the Honolulu Advertiser online edition:

    Kapolei linebacker/fullback Simione Vehikite has verbally committed to the University of Southern California, his coach, Darren Hernandez said today.

    Hernandez said Vehikite, who is 6 feet 1, 243 pounds and has been timed at 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash on grass, made 119 tackles this season including 10 sacks and 12 tackles for losses. He also played fullback and averaged 10 yards per carry.

    Vehikite transferred to Kapolei from Maui’s Lahainaluna last spring.

  192. al. December 18, 2008 3:29 pm

    remember two years ago….possibly the only qb and/or recruit that jj actually got personally involved with that year, robert marve?

    well he has made the headlines once again…………..

    BTW, anyone know if we’ll have a “white-out” at the Hawaii Bowl?

  199. Manoa December 18, 2008 3:48 pm

    On the topic of polynesians, how about the German Samoans like the Hannemans and the Wolfgramms and others?
    By the way, there are many ways in which we are connected given the way we humans have migrated to populate the world.
    Hawaii, the islands of the pacific, including Easter Island, were populated by native peoples who came from the South Pacific, but they in turn came from Luzon and Islands in the Phillipines, and before that from Taiwan, and long before that the China.
    To this day, the words for rock, coconut, several numbers, island, and concepts like the ancient home of all polynesians are almost identical in Tagalog, Illocano, Tongan, Maori, Samoan, and Hawaiian (need to interchange the k’s and t’s). All related.

    Contrary to what others might think, UH has been recruiting Vehikite since July, when he attended the UH camps.

    wasn’t al noga once married to the lead singer? i think they met in minneapolis.

    ryan….not to despair. in typical fashion, i believe mack will wait til all the faxes are received and all documents are certified such that a press conference to include the early signings will not leave out any new jc players.

    that seems to be his style. i like that. it shows he is concerned about these young men as a whole first and foremost.

  209. LizKauai [Believer] December 18, 2008 4:13 pm

    Manoa- speaking of similarities, I was watching Kundun again the other day and remarking to my kids how much Tibetan practices and dress are reflected in ancient Hawaiian practices and dress.
    The family of humanity really is one big ohana.

  210. J-Dog December 18, 2008 4:28 pm

    I liked the Ryan Henry and Dustin Blount interviews from last nights’ news. Looks like there’s gonna be heavy competition for starting WR spots.

  211. Rob25 December 18, 2008 4:35 pm


    What is important is whether or not they have something interesting or informative to contribute. If yes, great. If not, oh well.

    I do offer, however, critical commentary on what I see as things UH needs to do to build a better program.

    Response: Oh well, neither interesting or informative.

    This here is a not a school yard.

    It’s a mindless and dirty job but someones got to do it.

    Response: And yet you respond in a childish manner by degrading someone’s profession.

    You are concerned about being liked whereas I am not concerned about being liked.

    FYI, we like Liz for all of her wonderful qualities and our friendship with her doesn’t come with any prerequisites.

    Feel free to express your views about the coaching staff, but please do so with respect and without the degradation.

  212. Tombo Ahi December 18, 2008 4:37 pm

    how did you know?
    cuz i never told
    you found out
    i’ve got a crush on you.


    awww yeah

  213. Kekoa December 18, 2008 4:41 pm

    Al ~ I will stop my rant after this one….I promise.

    Gotta stick up for our MSLiz. She does happen to know a lot about UH & ‘Skins football plays and players. For someone like Uce2 to talk smack about Liz just being a cheerleader is an insult to her knowledge of the game.

    Not only can Liz out cheer the cheer leaders, and we’ve all seen evidence of her handiwork…but she can put the right defense together to provide the right stopping power to any offense in the WAC. With her knowledge of the shootz – den run, she is dy-no-mite!

    I know this is playing into the hands of this ‘sister’ troll, but she may as well know the truth. Man up Uce2, Liz is not the only Tsaikette that can take you down when it comes to football. On a bad day, even Mrs. A-House could brush you off like one mosquito…but then she’s oriental, so that wouldn’t fit your Poly-racial preferance. At any rate, you wouldn’t want any part of a feud with her either!

    There are other Tsaikettes, but then I would be guilty of piling on.

    Ok, thanks Al. I’m done.

  214. Bulla December 18, 2008 4:48 pm


    tachibana faster than falemalu? no way, i’d put money on pj any day of the week.

    glad to hear tachibana has everything going well, heard he might have had to wait until fall 2009.

    what’s going on with earvin sione from Mckinley?

    quentin beaver, big and strong but slow….i think his speed would be better if he dropped about 40+ pounds….but then again, that would be true of anyone.

    OK, I had a few minutes finally to come back and skim through most of today’s comments and … I just want to say that I truly hope that those attending tonight’s blog celebration have a fantastic time, because they deserve it.

    I think what I am NOT going to say about certain things said here on today’s discussion … says enough.

    I will be there in spirit tonight and thinking of you, Tsaikos. Happiest of holidays!

  217. Esme December 18, 2008 4:59 pm

    P.S.: ST, you not gonna pull another one on my like last year and tell me AFTER the fact that a certain QB was in attendance, eh? 😆 Juuuust checking …

  221. Rob25 December 18, 2008 5:04 pm

    No thanks needed Liz!

    It wasn’t about football for me; it was all about class. You are one classy lady.

  222. Ralph December 18, 2008 5:04 pm

    Esme is out of the building again…..SteveM, you must post a picture of Esme to keep our memory fresh, its been a while seen she showed up any tsaiko gathering….she’ll be all grown up the next time we see her-almost 5 feet tall

  223. LizKauai [Believer] December 18, 2008 5:06 pm

    Coach Mack you out there? What the scoops like that?

  225. kama krab December 18, 2008 5:09 pm

    Sorry Al I gotta go off on this one to in all do respect to my family here on the blog.

    Uce2 if the comments you post here are not for the blogs comsumption and reading pleasure, then why post your dirty laundry here. You can go straight to the horse itself rather than trying to pick fights with people that of course do not feel the same as you do. If you are trying to make a point to Mufi then go tell Mufi. If you are trying to make a point to Coach Mac go to Coach Mac. Are you that much of a coward that you have to sit behind a computer and degrade very kind people over a public forum like this blog cause if you are this is not the place to do it. We are a family here and we take care of our own. So before you decide to make sly remarks about people like Liz and Kekoa or anybody else please realize that you are barking up the wrong tree my friend.

    You know the reason why people are so fond of Hawaii is because it is all about the family and we treat each and every player that decides to come to Hawaii as our family. If our local boy go away we still cheer for as if they were still here. The only difference is they are in another jersey. So for those out there who read the blog and lurk on a regular basis I a very sorry for going off on this little tangent but these people are my family and I take care of my family.

    Sorry again but that is all for me today. I will see everybody at the party.

  226. LizKauai [Believer] December 18, 2008 5:10 pm

    one more before I go-
    Doppler is showing HAIL to the west of Niihau.

    yikes. We must protect this car! er- House!

    HAIL REDSKINS! (ok, that was just a knee-jerk reaction)

  227. Jason December 18, 2008 5:12 pm

    I could post a picture of Esme, but then she’d kill me.

    Oh wait. I think this one is okay (but she still might kill me):


  228. wafan December 18, 2008 5:13 pm

    Well, with school cancelled for tomorrow that means my Winter Break really started yesterday rather than tomorrow afternoon.

    Sheesh! Missed the first two days of my break.

  229. wafan December 18, 2008 5:22 pm

    Jason . . .

    Thanks for the photo. Now I remember how she looks.

    When I did my internship I posted a photo of myself so my students would remember how I looked. They had a good laugh.

  230. Hoohiki December 18, 2008 5:22 pm

    My family and I just thought it would be nice to relax in a nice quiet hotel in Waikiki. Little did I know that when I made reservaions 2 months ago, that I may be bumping into…. a whole football team in the lobby of the Moana Surfrider. Yeah!!!

  231. bstunna2002 December 18, 2008 5:35 pm

    I think coach mac wants to get all the letters in before making an announcement hopefully it comes soon though I don’t think I’ be ever been this excited about LOI day before and to think in 2 months we’ll do it all over again.

  232. Kazz December 18, 2008 5:38 pm

    You lucky dog you!!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

    I thought that the team would be at the Sheraton considering it’s the “Sheraton Hawaii Bowl”?

    CRW . . .

    Alaska already did UW, WSU, UO and, I think, OSU on their planes. Good to see other schools going up.

    I asked before. Why is it taking so long for Hawai’ian to do something? That little “H” logo on the side of the plane is cute but just is not the same.

    You are correct. They claim to be Hawai’i’s airline.

    Mr. Tsai…ditto Bulla…from someone in the know…Paipai is faster than Alema, while in high school it was proven…where Reggie gets his information eludes me, especiallysince he was their football coach and should know better.

  241. Committed Road Warrior December 18, 2008 6:30 pm


    Yep. They have those 4 Pac-10 schools covered on their planes. I had the opportunity to fly on the Wazzu jet from Portland to Boise when I joined the Tsaikos for the Boise State game.

    I share your sentiments regarding Hawaiian Air and a potential UH logojet. It would be nice to see it on one of their Trans-Pac planes, but even something on one of the smaller interisland jets would suffice.

  242. jm2375 December 18, 2008 6:33 pm

    Sort of off-topic. Got this email from my travel agent:

    The big news is the new upgrade policy with United Airlines. Travel after 1 JULY 2009 will be affected by the new schedule. It will not be cheap to Upgrade anymore. In addition to the miles, you will have to pay to upgrade your record. In a nutshell, this is the new co-pay schedule.

    HNL to Mainland. For the cheapest class of service (S) (T) and (L) 17,500 miles plus $500.00 each way. This is in addition to the basic ticket price and upgrades are not guaranteed. As an example, the lowest United round trip fare to Los Angeles on 09 – 16 SEPTEMBER (T Class) is $528.40. To upgrade this record in both directions, you will be required to surrender 35,000 miles plus $1,000.00. The distance from Honolulu to Los Angeles is 2,556 miles. The total (upgraded) fare to travel round trip is $1,528.39.

    If you lived in Los Angeles and traveled on United to Boston (2,611 miles) on the same dates (09 -16 SEPTEMBER), the fare is $409.00. To upgrade this record in both directions, (V) (K) (W) (S) (T) (L) classes, you will be assessed 30,000 miles plus $100.00. The total (upgraded) fare to travel round trip is $509.00. Is this fair to Hawaii Residents?

    😯 🙄 😈

    I was cut off on the last post by the blog so I went to turn in my pig skin picks at zippy’s Hope I win this time..Can’t stand the smirk on the mrs as she won last year. As for the party, we baby sit until six so its hard for us to make it there and also the mrs had to go to a church meeting tonight.

  249. Garret December 18, 2008 8:26 pm

    Momo and Mrs. Momo take care of my sister’s 3 kids during weekdays since both she and her husband have to work, so it would be quite difficult for Momo and Mrs. Momo to make the blog party…

  250. Garret December 18, 2008 8:35 pm


    I know that you are a teacher now…Momo and Mrs. Momo were public school teachers in Hawaii until they retired. Momo taught for a year at Kapaa High, then taught at Kailua High from when it opened in 1960. After he retired he kept teaching, and he teaches 4 days per week now I think.

    He’s always been a great role model for me.

  251. Garret December 18, 2008 8:36 pm

    An interview with Samson has been posted on the South Florida Sun-Sentinel website!

    Every time I’ve asked center Samson Satele about his part-time work at guard a big grin has emerged on the Somoan’s face. I even sense he seems a little relieved to be working one spot over because he admits the position is easier, and plays to his strengths (speed and quickness).

    Would Satele be willing to make a full-time move? Does he know something we don’t?

    During this unfiltered interview you’ll learn that all Samson cares about is winning, how much of an influence former Dolphin Junior Seau had on his career and how important his success is to his culture, and Samson reveals the last time he’s cut his hair, and who actually does it.

  252. Garret December 18, 2008 8:38 pm

    Since nobody is here right now, I’ll do the free play links. Please ignore my next 5 posts if you do not want the off-topic stuff.

    Discussion about whether or not Wikileaks went too far when they posted classified material on the IED jammers that US troops were using in Iraq. Very interesting discussion here also about how US soldiers are upset that we’ve spent billions on jammers without worrying about how they will not be able to communicate when the IED jammers are turned on.

  253. Garret December 18, 2008 8:39 pm

    One thing that the various people who were arguing on the blog today would agree on is that we are all fans of Samson Satele! I loved the part of his interview when he talked about being a fan of Seau’s from when he was a kid and how he got to block Seau last season…and he was thinking about how he was a fan of Seau’s when he was in Elementary School!

    Since e-coli is part of the human intestinal “flora,” does this mean future terrorists can ingest the fuel-making variety and turn themselves into living bombs? 🙂

  297. Garret December 18, 2008 10:48 pm

    Article about how Miami might be using Samson at RG more…Miami has had a problem at RG ever since losing their starter for the season due to an injury. If you watched the video I posted earlier, it sounded like Samson wouldn’t mind playing guard.

    Last week the Dolphins unveiled the idea of moving starting center Samson Satele to right guard and plugging in veteran Al Johnson at center. The idea was hatched the second Johnson signed and it has come to a Miami offensive line near you.

    This move is meant to address two issues: Improve the right guard play. And improve the center play.

    So Johnson may be playing himself into more playing time very soon.

    “Yeah, I can see that,” coach Tony Sparano said Thursday when he was asked if Johnson might be getting more playing time very soon. “I can see Al getting more work during the course of the games.”

  298. las vegas December 18, 2008 10:49 pm

    Al san,
    good catch on last name

  299. Garret December 18, 2008 10:49 pm

    Miami’s head coach was Dallas’ OL coach when Samson was in the draft, so he knows that Samson can play both C and G.

    Anyway, you have to remember this is a two-pronged hope for improving the line. The Dolphins hope they can improve the center spot with Johnson, yes, but there is still that troublesome right guard spot to be addressed. And apparently Satele isn’t bad there.

    “Not bad. Good,” Sparano said. “Samson played pretty good. Again, it was eight plays worth of work out there and in some of those, he wasn’t really challenged a whole lot. He didn’t have a guy on him is what I’m saying.”

    Sparano went on to make the point Satele played guard at Hawaii and that, as the Dallas offensive line coach, Sparano studied the player before the draft.

    “We really looked at him as a swing player at the time when we were in Dallas — a center-guard,” the coach said. “We knew that was something that he has done and I think, athletically, when you take the ball out from between his legs and you put him over there at guard, it gives him a chance to get his hands on people a little bit faster. So I thought he did a pretty good job.”

  300. d1島 December 18, 2008 10:51 pm

    las vegas,


    It was still going pretty strong when we left about an hour-and-a-half now.

  303. las vegas December 18, 2008 10:52 pm

    For the same pay, always play guard.
    No need to make line calls and when the DT cracks down on you,
    can use both hands instead of one stuck snapping the ball by your butt.

    Snow melting away slowly, biggest snow in 30 years.
    Tried to park my car in garage but cannot climb drive way
    because of ice.

    wow interesting blog today. didnt get to it till just now.

    why are people even responding to this Uce2 thing? Everyone should stop being mean. i mean its pretty impressive that he knows how to use a computer

    i mean c’mon while most early hominids pick each others hair looking for the lunch specials, uce2 is actually communicating. very impressive!

    alas we all must tolerate uce2’s opinion. we live in a free and great country where even bigotry has a undeniable right to be shouted from the mountaintops.

  314. Jason December 18, 2008 11:02 pm

    Party is pau at Murphy’s, but a whole bunch of people went to Shinsho Tei for karaoke afterwards. I think Pride. has been warming up the microphones for a while!

    It was a great party tonight. Among the highlights were Mrs. A-House picking herself for the grand prize, a spirited thumb wrestling match with Pride., and me with a wad of $1 bills (in the jan ken po tournament — I lost to UHfan808). Anything else, I’m not sure I’m allowed to mention. 😉

    speaking of poopy pants- my #1 and only daughter called tonight with the latest LiLu stories. Da little buggah is potty training her mom. She tells mom when she has to go poop and shishi. Da buggah no can even walk yet! But pretty soon.

    She talks pretty good too – I could hear her saying Ma! in the background.

  328. MeiLing December 18, 2008 11:15 pm


    My designated driver was turning into a pumpkin cuz he goes to work at early o’clock a.m., so we went home early.


    Did you get a karaoke system? My Mom has this older system that uses cassette tapes (or 8-track tapes!) Man, it’s really old, but some of the tapes have songs that I sing.

  329. las vegas December 18, 2008 11:15 pm

    Shinsho Tei, huh… guess I’ll wait till next Tuesday. Tempting though…

  332. al. December 18, 2008 11:16 pm

    okay, i guess we will wait for the mack press conference to announce early commits.

    speaking of which, why doesn’t football have an early commit period? it would help to lower the blood pressure of many a head coach.

    las vegas — Stranger yet is Al and ST looking like brothers in a cattle call photo. But yes, I thought there was a resemblance…. 🙂

    Mei Ling — yes, we did buy the the karaoke mic system on Sunday. Got the tip from midnight. So now Kekoa, midnight, and I have similar systems. Would be real interesting to see what extra song chips we each bought…. But it is really more fun singing karaoke live with friends… and practice won’t help me… 🙁

  349. MeiLing December 18, 2008 11:47 pm

    las vegas & wafan,

    You sure you weren’t separated at birth? As my Dad would say, “I resemble that remark.”


    Kewl! My Mom has the same new system with a remote mike compliments of my sister & bro-in-law. She needs more chips, tho.

  350. SteveM December 18, 2008 11:47 pm

    Just back from a busy night. We attended a meeting that required helping to organize a food drive for the needy families at Christmas.

    Lots of canned goods collected today and this eve. More work to do this weekend in finishing up. It was nice to have a great turnout, as people volunteered because of families they know who were hit hard by the flood.

    I’m exhausted!…Got an early call at the State Capital in the morning. I’ll be sure and go by (J) James’s office and bang on his trash can. On second thiought…I should go by Murphy’s first! Bwhahahaha!

    Great articles in today’s SB and HA on seniors Kafentzis and Watson.

    makes you stand up and root for them in life.

    Go Warriors!

  365. wafan December 19, 2008 6:27 am

    A fine Wintery morning to all!

    Decided to stay up past my regular bed-time last night. Felt good to sleep in a bit, though!

  366. wafan December 19, 2008 6:30 am

    Agree with d1 and bhf2 about the articles. There is hope for our society! Now if we could only reach the others who need to have their eyes and minds opened.

  367. Stretch December 19, 2008 6:38 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Was reading the morning article on Kafentzis passing up walking for graduation. Are they going to have practice the same time as graduation?? Isn’t Mack part of the processional for graduation?? They should adjust the practice time to accomodate the players who graduate. It is an honor to receive your degree in front of family and friends. The players shouldn’t have to choose between the two.

  368. wafan December 19, 2008 6:39 am

    Momo . . .

    One of my aunts taught at either Kailua H or I School. Cannot remember which one. She suffered a stroke in early summer. Still is sharp as a tack but needs a little bit of help.

    With the economy the way it is, it is a good thing you and the Mrs. are able to help raise your grandchildren. It must be a lot of fun and exhausting work.

    Mom watches my niece, helps with her homework, feeds her three meals and bochas her each weekday.

    But, Mom loves every minute of it! I usually get a report on what is going on every two or three days. I guess the job of a (grand)parent is never really finished!

  369. bighilofan2 December 19, 2008 6:43 am

    i stil jacked from last nite, so lets get dis party started.. 😀

    you know, the story goes that a short while back a kid near Laie would wait by the road to catch the bus to Honolulu. He played football at Punahou. And this other kid had a father who woujld drive his kid and another kid into town to Punahou, early a.m. and drive right by the lkid on the side of the road, and the kids in the car woujld tease the little kid as they drove by and left him on the side of the road even though they were all headed to da same school on da odda side ah da mountains and played on da same team.

    The little kid never forgot. His fahdah never forgot. That little kid that had stood on the side of the road, he’s gonna be a rock star in college football, PAC10, mark my words. And all theze people are polys.

    The moral ah da story. Ethnic not enough. At da top 1% ah da top 1%
    the kids remember who treated them like they was the top 1%, including their “friends” anad fellow polys. memory is like a elephant ting. and i wasn’t dare but i no da story.

    an dats why I just no dat da kids in da car, the lessons they learnin in life from da car drivah, well…. I not puttin my uluz in his basket.

    and dats whyt i puttin my uluz in Mack’s basket. he one classy buggah.

    ok dats da end ah da story. 😀

  370. d1島 December 19, 2008 6:57 am


    Just guessing that the SLS field is only available early in the morning so that limits the team to that time slot for practice…

    Gotta esme for now….

  374. djmitcho December 19, 2008 7:14 am

    Good Morning All! I hope everyone had a good time at da party last night.

  375. bighilofan2 December 19, 2008 7:18 am

    there is a silver lining in the story about those that go away to college. most times the kid grows up and does something useful and good in life, lookin back, he attributes the opportunities he got going away, and appreciates what he left behind Hawaii. Like Malloe. like me.

    so i understande why some of our guyz committin to da mainland.

    but you also understand why I just love the localz who are staying home and playing for us.

    you know the one story this year that I’m having hopes for. Its the one thats on the hush hush. I’m pullin for the SLS 4. And thankin everybody in the mix who is thinkin about how to make it a win win. For us all.

  376. bighilofan2 December 19, 2008 7:22 am

    but it wouldn’t surprise me if our local huckabee makes tun ta da dunn
    and screws it up fo all us. i hope walter still get some swayl ova dat bugga.

  377. bighilofan2 December 19, 2008 7:24 am

    cuz if he goin wait till next summer and drag this thing out, dat no can cuz it interferes with Warrior Nation.

    Give the kids a chance, huckabee.

  381. Buffoman December 19, 2008 7:35 am

    Couple of things:

    Heard on BC show this morning that the new UDUB guy is going hard after the verbal UH commits. Cheap shot S.O.B. We should play those guys again!

    I know this was probably asked before but given that we are not on the Man(ti)’s list of 5 does that mean that he_ _ would freeze over before he considers doing a u-turn and become the biggest hero in the State by saying, “uhh thanks folks but I’m going to stay home and play for UH.”

    I mean has it been made absolutely clear to UH staff that they are absolutely out of the running?

  382. bighilofan2 December 19, 2008 7:36 am

    yu tink bit city diner get one trainin table? 😀

  383. (Jesse) James December 19, 2008 7:36 am

    Gotta run again today but wanted to post one more thing. Since it’s the holiday season….just wanted to share a cute local take on the Night Before Christmas….

    The Night Before Christmas – Hawaiian Style

    From the CD “Moonbows for Christmas”
    “Da Night Bafo Christmas”
    Lyrics by Kathy Collins

    Was da night bafo’ Christmas, and all ova’ da place, Not even da
    geckos was showin’ their face.

    Da stockings was hangin’ on top da TV
    (‘Cause no mo’ fireplace in Hawai’i)

    Da kids stay all crashed, my old man too.
    They leave all da work for you-know-who.

    So me, I stay pickin’ up alla their toys, When – boom! – outside get
    only big noise!

    I run to da window, I open ’em up,
    I stick out my head and I yell, “Eh! Whassup?!”

    And then, I no can ba-lieve what I seen!
    Was so unreal, you know what I mean?

    This fat haole guy get his reindeers in my yard!
    And reindeers not housebroken, you know, as’ why hard!

    But nemmind, this Christmas, so I cut ’em some slack.
    Plus, had uku pile presents pokin’ outta his sack!

    So I wait ’till he pau tie up his reindeer, Then I yell out da window,
    “Huui! Brah, ova hea!”

    An’ I tell ’em first thing, when I open da door, “Eh, Hemo your shoes!
    You going dirty my floor!”

    He take off his boots, he tell, “You know who I am?”
    I go, “Ho! From the smell, must be Mr. Toe Jam!”

    He make mempachi eyes and he go, “Ho, ho, ho!”
    By now, I stay thinking this guy kinda slow!

    He look like my Tutu, but little less weight, And his beard stay so
    white, mo’ white than shark bait!

    He stay all in red, specially his nose, And get reindeer spit on top
    his nice clothes!

    But him, he no care; he just smile at me, And he start fo’ put
    presents unda-neath da tree.

    I tell ’em, “Eh, brah, no need make li’dat, And watch where you step!
    You going ma-ke da cat!”

    Then, out from his bag, he pull one brand new computah, Choke video
    games, and one motorized scootah!

    He try for fill up da Christmas socks too, But had so much pukas, all
    da stuff went fall troo.

    When he pau, I tell ’em, “Eh Santa, try wait!
    I get plenty leftovahs, I go make you one plate!”

    But he nevah like hang, he had so much fo’ do; Gotta make all them
    small kids’ wishes come true.

    So I wave ’em goodbye, and I flash ’em da shaka, And I tell ’em, “Mele

    When he hear that, he stop…and I telling you true, He go, “Garans
    ball-barans! Merry Christmas to you!”

  384. bighilofan2 December 19, 2008 7:53 am

    i would say so.

    Sarkisian, dat bugga. i betcha he stay telling people dat he believe in himself and he puttin togedda one supah coachin staff so his players get personal attention. yada yada. he must figah he get mo juice dan Mack and Ron and Cal. and Tony. you know,k once you make a choice, you kinda like stuck and you gotta back yo move. like sarah palin.

    so who is saying Sarkisian going hard after our guyz? is he spot checking or is he everywhere? which islands? him and neiheusel. if wuz me, i would go wit Oregon State if i would go anywhere PAC10. Coach Cav get all his guyz jacked. and thats the guyz i’d like to play, not UW. playing UW would be like playing LaTech. I gettinbad vibes this new coach.

    The two Navarro JC players signed with the Warriors.

    The University of Hawaii dipped into Navarro’s roster for a pair of players this year. Cornerback Melvin Hopkins and receiver Rodney Bradley will travel across the Pacific to play for the Rainbows in 2009. Bradley led Navarro with 29 catches and nine TD receptions this season.

    Should have asked you last night, but didn’t. Can you give us an update on moving Saturn’s house, or getting your backyard cut. If you’ve set dates and times, perhaps some extra hands can show up. Hmmm…how big did you say your backyard was…do you measure in square feet or acres?

  403. BowsForever December 19, 2008 11:16 am

    AP calling the game in favor of Notre Dame, 37-27 after we gave up less than 30 to Cincinnati and despite ND’s scoring average of 22.7 points per game, and Hawaii never having given up more than 37 points after the third game of the season?

    Pfft. Good luck with that prediction. ND may want to win bad…but the Warriors want it badder!

  404. al. December 19, 2008 11:18 am

    what….that wasn’t the real uce2?

    and here i offered the olive branch of forgiveness.

  405. BowsForever December 19, 2008 11:20 am

    Correction: Hawaii never gave up more than 31 points after the OSU loss in “Week 3.” Anyway, methinks the AP is giving ND too much credit. But that’s OK, hype ’em up, knock ’em down!

  406. Stretch December 19, 2008 11:24 am

    I think that it is better to have UH the underdog, they play a lot better. When they were favored to win, they didn’t have the killer instinct. Most people outside of Hawaii expect ND to win so now they have something to prove.
