Billy Ray Stutzmann accepts UH offer

One of the state’s top high school prospects — wide receiver Billy Ray Stutzmann of Saint Louis School — yesterday accepted a UH football scholarship offer from the Warriors.

What’s more, Stutzmann is seeking to graduate in December, allowing him to enroll at UH in January and participate in spring training.

Stutzmann’s commitment is one of the earliest in the program’s history, and it jump-starts Greg McMackin’s efforts to secure the state’s top players.

Stutzmann is the younger brother of Craig Stutzmann, a UH graduate assistant coach and former UH standout.

He also received offers from Washington, Washington State, Oregon State, Colorado, Michigan State and Notre Dame.

It’s wonderful news that Tony Tuioti will join the Warriors in the newly created position of director of player personnel. He will coordinate academics and recruiting.

Not only was Tuioti a tough defensive tackle who played through numerous injuries, he was a top student. Tuioti has earned two master’s degrees.

Tuioti was a member of Bob Wagner’s final recruiting classes. Tuioti, Adrian Klemm, Kaulana Noa, Daniel Ho-Ching and Chad Shrout played for Wagner, Fred vonAppen and June Jones.

Tuioti was recruited by Ulima Afoa, now Saint Louis’ athletic director.

  6. Kekoa July 15, 2008 1:03 am

    Howzit LTUH Fan! Did you have your cake and eat it too? Seems Warrior Mojo was blindsided by Gigi & W/Doc at cake side. Personal foul flag was thrown, but play resumed until the dust settled and the cake was gone!

  7. koakane™ July 15, 2008 1:04 am



    howzit pride long time.

    brought ova from last post.

    damien was in the old ILH because I played against the old ILH in the termite palace back in da days.

    rememba the split cause we got paper clipping of the eventual break up form folks back home. I was in washington at the time and remember reading about it. later when I coached I spoke to many of the coaches from city schools (private-ehamada, dbothello, cchai, rmarcial and public-cmiyashiro, ewatanabe, ) about the spit. many interesting stories and opinions about the split from both sides. lots of blame placed on everybody.

    so sad and too bad they will never revive the old ILH again.

  9. Pride. July 15, 2008 1:08 am

    I was just telling Kaipo Spencer last night how I used to enjoy watching him at the old Honolulu Stadium in the old ILH format. I never got to participate in that format. Was kind of bummed.

    I’m still trying to recover from jet skiing.
    OK, my kids were zipping along, going at up to 50 mph.
    I was moving like I was looking for mall parking. But it still felt like I was zipping.

  11. Pride. July 15, 2008 1:10 am

    Congratulation to Tuioti. Is he the one that also plays the piano quite well?

  12. koakane™ July 15, 2008 1:11 am

    know she is a counselor at tsaiman alma mater kaipo’s wife not the bar tendress

  15. Kekoa July 15, 2008 1:15 am

    Koakane ~ Didn’t it level the playing field between the private and public schools?

    Or do you think that it is like this blog, and would have corrected itself eventually. Would it have been become fair and open competition without any meddling from the admin authorities?

  16. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2008 1:16 am

    We were once on the road. Tuioti was in the hotel lobby playing “Easy” on the piano.
    I started to sing along, you know, in my wonderful Lion-Sleeps-Tonight voice.
    He said, politely: “Let’s try this one as an instrumental.”

  17. Pride. July 15, 2008 1:18 am

    Koakane. I guess you’re right, she looked a little bit like Terry…but wayyyyy shorter.

  22. Pride. July 15, 2008 1:21 am

    Tsai, you should keep singing, as long as you sing with a joyful heart, it’s fine with me. I’m sure Wena thinks you have a beautiful voice.

    Speaking of age – is it just me? Billy Ray Stutzmann looks like he’s going to graduate from middle school in December, not high school Is he really old enough to commit to UH? [

    Here’s a challenge: A cake-eating contest. I’ll take on the winners of air hockey AND jan ken po. Anyone else care to enter?

    What a way to start the day! Such great news for a Tuesday! ST did hint that a decision was gonna be made today about Tuioti. I haven’t been around in awhile so I didn’t read anything about Doris S. Will she remain at her current position or will she be helping UH in some capacity?

  39. Hoohiki July 15, 2008 3:18 am

    Manti! Manti! Manti! If he also commits, I can see the floodgates open for the recruits we want and the floodgates open for the ticket sales. Warriors! Warriors! Warriors!

  40. ICYUL8 July 15, 2008 3:23 am

    Mrs. A-House

    Qoute:ICYUL8 –
    Ho “my son”, I was hoping you’d “pop the cherry”?…wat is dat?? Don’t let your bro hog the posts now…you both make a darn funny comedy team…like a vaudeville comedy act. Midori7 says your “act” includes awesome singing voices, too. Some lucky guyz have it all!!

    ~~~ Mrs. A-House I don’t know what Midori7 is talking about. I can’t sing I was only “acking”, I think she may have had to many 007’s on the rocks that night. hahaha…. However, you on the other hand got some major singing talent. Honestly, at the BBP I must say you gave truly an inspirational introduction speech as well as a phenomenal singing performance that night. AWESOME JOB!!!

    Quote:Pauoa Boy & ICYUL8 –
    Whoa!! Midori, you off da hook. Big Mama is goin’ give you boys da slippah!! I love bing cherries…but I know there is nothing innocent about YOUR useage when referring to that wholesome fruit. Like I said before…I am VERY shy by nature…so terms like “ROTFLMAO” and “yellow” and/or “clear” “raincoats” give me stress! Took me weeks to figure out what those terms refer to. I’m sweating as I post this…

    ~~~Mrs. A-House, I apologize for having midori7 explain to you about the forbidden cherry fruit popping. Maybe, I should refer to cherries from now on as the kapu flower of life? hahaha….

    Qoute:ICYUL8 –
    You didn’t sign my book either. I’ll give you a loving whack after you sign. LOL

    ~~~Mrs. A-House, I’m also sorry for not signing your book at the BBP. However, I must say that is a smooth and unique tactic your using to ask me for my digits though. Please don’t tell Mr. A-House me no likey “NO TROUBLE”!!! lol….

  41. Ralph July 15, 2008 3:24 am

    congratulations to tony, and welcome aboard Billy ray…we’re moving a step closer to parity in staffing…JJ at SMU has three on staff helping in fb- a director of fb operations, director of high school relations and a director on on campus recruiting.. So let’s keep up with the Joneses and hire Doris to work with Tony…also fb needs a full time secretary, now that’s really starting from scratch when a program can’t afford a secretary for the head coach…

  42. ICYUL8 July 15, 2008 3:26 am

    Awesome Job Stutzman brothers!!!

  43. Ralph July 15, 2008 3:31 am

    a lot of the pac 10 and big 12 schools have nearly completed their 2009 recruiting, saving a few for the Manti Teo’s category of talent, so for those in Hawaii who are sitting on the fence and waiting, you may wait to long and find yourself on the short end. Times have changed, more and more BCS schools are recruiting early and finishing early.

  44. Ralph July 15, 2008 3:35 am

    twice a pop up from the Advertiser requested authentication- user name and password. After posting twice, I punched in cancel on the third appearance of the request..surprisingly, my post 43 went through…ok techies, must going on…

  45. Ralph July 15, 2008 3:46 am

    authentication request pops up to often, time to go to bed…techies are a nuisance.

  46. Garret July 15, 2008 4:41 am

    Great news about Billy Ray and Tony! One of the top local recruits staying home is always a great thing…but by committing so early he’s setting a great example for the rest of the local recruits! Plus, Billy Ray should be perfect for the offense and will do well at UH.

    Tony will be a big boost to the Warriors. Ralph is correct that most other schools (even many non-BCS conference schools) have already had the budget for additional personnel doing things like what Tony will be doing. Additional manpower is a huge advantage, allowing the program to do more and freeing up the coaches to focus more on coaching. Plus, from what I remember and what I’ve heard, Tony is a great representative for the Warriors.

  47. Garret July 15, 2008 4:46 am

    Florida signed a *huge* TV deal…and possibly eliminated the chance for the creation of a SEC sports network.

    The University of Florida and Fox’s Sun Sports have signed a media rights deal that is not only one of the most lucrative in the country, but also could end the likelihood of an SEC channel being created any time soon.

    The deal will pay Florida’s marketing arm, the University Athletic Association, roughly $10 million a year for the next 10 years. Florida, one of the Southeastern Conference’s most marketable schools, was one of the few major colleges that handled many of its marketing and media rights in-house.

  48. Garret July 15, 2008 4:47 am

    Looking at Michigan’s new jerseys, I like what UA did with UH more than what Adidas did for Michigan…though the money Michigan is getting is pretty amazing.

    Michigan unveiled its new, authentic football jerseys yesterday that are both similar to, and remarkably different from, game shirts from years past.

    Made by adidas, which contracted with UM on an eight-year, $60 million licensing agreement last year, the home jersey appears to largely stick with tradition. They’re the familiar blue with solid maize numbers.

    But a key difference in the Wolverines’ road White jerseys is the maize stripe running from the neckline to the front of the shoulder and down the sleeve on the left and right sides.

    morning gang!

    congrats to Billy on committing to the Warriors,
    now go out and enjoy your senior year
    wouldn’t that be something if we get a #5 on both sides of the ball?

    Tony – congrats and good luck with the recruiting
    another great addition to the staff
    just when you think things are moving along, it gets even better

    Colt – what more can you say about his aloha spirit

    everyone have a safe and happy day!

    way to go Colt

    Ralph- dunno if this will help but in the early days of blog software changeover, we had to dump cache to get rid of the sign-in sheets. That MAY be happening again.

  52. PIAA DS July 15, 2008 5:23 am

    Billy Rays’ dad (William)said some of the reasons Billy Ray wants to play for Hawaii and commit early…

    wants to concentrate on Senior year
    wants to be at a school where he is a top recruit
    wants to be at a school where he feels comfortable with coaches
    wants to hopefully play early
    wants to play in front of family and friends
    wants an offense that throws the ball

    UH seems to fit the profile! Congrats Billy Ray

  53. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 15, 2008 5:26 am

    Hi Doris!

  54. d1shima [sez:] July 15, 2008 6:10 am

    Great Morning All!

    I can’t imagine that there would be a Receivers Coach at any other school who Billy Ray would feel more comfortable with 😉

  55. WarriorMojo July 15, 2008 6:14 am

    Just a quick one to catch up.

    AWESOME news about Billy Ray!!! Way to start it up, brother!! Hmm, wonder if #2 is reserved for you. Also wonder if there are any more punts in the Stutzmann family.

    Great news about Tony Tuioti. He was 100% heart. Never got down, never quit. Didn’t matter what the score was.

    SteveM, thank you. You are too kind. I want in on the August KCall, but can’t pay until I get back. Am I good?

    Barry, I knew you were standing next to me, but I wasn’t sure if you saw the whole incident when I went over to the cake.

    Gigi, WD, funny that you both confirmed my account of things. I thought there was going to be a denial or two. And, WD, you’re right. I’m sure I could have held my own in the cake battle with you and the Gigster, but that’s not how I was raised.

    PIAA, sorry not sure where the Redskins hold their training camp other than at Redskin Park. I know the fanfest thing this Sunday is here, though, so I doubt they would move.

    Wreck, D1, DPK, Al, Homey, Stretch, James, Kekoa, Big Hilo, et al., talk to you guys later.

    Esme and out.

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs,

    BRS is a great kid and well grounded having seen him grow up. His older brother will need to teach him how to punt by the time he is a Senior Warrior!!! Know that Mom and Dad are relieved that the college recruiting stuff is put to rest! Can’t wait to see him on the field.
    Go Warriors!

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Welcome to Billy Ray. I’ve seen him working out with the players and he looks like he will fit in fine. He needs to bulk up but I don’t think that would be a problem.

    Congratulations Tony!! I am sure you will do great things.

    One question, does he work only with football or all sports??

  64. d1shima [sez:] July 15, 2008 7:06 am


    Done deal!

  76. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2008 7:21 am

    I have mixed emotions about the Tuioti hiring. It was like Sophie’s Choice. It was between Tuioti and Doris. Both are great candidates. There’s only one job. I know they were talking about having Na Koa pay for a second position.
    Then again, Doris does so much for the high school kids here. I’m not sure who could replace her.

  77. d1shima [sez:] July 15, 2008 7:22 am

  80. Bulla July 15, 2008 7:24 am

    congrats to the Stutzmann family, awesome job!!!

    like i say, it has to be a good fit for the student athlete, not a good fit for the parents so they can brag about where their son/daughter is going to school. it’s all about the kids…the more comfortable they are with their surroundings and having an advocate for them on the coaching staff…the more likely that they will graduate with a degree.

    glad to see billy ray getting a lot of interest from other big schools also.

    have a great senior year at Saint Louis, and do it in the spirit of excellence.

    as we are experiencing some of the benefits of JJ leaving UH, so too are the Crusader parents now.

    in the spirit of excellence…..and they will succeed.

    The WAC meetings are in Salt Lake City next week. You should tell the Beast to come on down. He can hang out with Mack, Adam Leonard and Solomon Elimimian.

  97. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 7:55 am

    bonar – your aim is getting better. That’s 2 days in a row that you are on target.

  98. Maverick July 15, 2008 8:03 am

    Awesome Possum with Mr. Stutzmann.

    Big time offers on the table and he chooses to stay put in Hawaii.
    He sets the example that Coach Mack and crew are trying to achieve.

    How much influence will Billy have on other candidates that are in-decisive?
    This is the pivotal year for recruiting.

  99. MeiLing July 15, 2008 8:06 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!!!

    Congratulations to Stutzmann & Tuioti!

  100. ryan July 15, 2008 8:12 am

    Great news about Billy and looking forward to more this week and next week at the UH camps.

  101. Kekoa July 15, 2008 8:17 am

    “In the Village, the peaceful Village” Good Morning Tsaiko Villagers!

    Those of you planning to go poppin’ Pizza wid Liz better be ready for some dee-licious Kauai style stuff! *Kalaheo* is so small that there is only one stop light, so if you past dat light heading West…you missed the Brick Oven!

    Have fun gang, knowing the rest of us will be ‘ono’ for…and scouring this island looking for – that perfect pizza!

  102. Maverick July 15, 2008 8:25 am

    Ryan –
    Speaking of camp – This couldn’t of been better timing by Stuzmann for his commit during the start of camp week. The Blue Chipper that he is, other prospects will look up to his decision and the chain reaction could follow.
    IMUA future Warriors!

  103. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 8:26 am

    Good morning TSAIKOS…

    Congrats to Tuioti and Stutzman…the program is only getting better….

    Not to be a downer but anyone read the story in the other daily about the SB tickets…man, we are still getting screwed by Mr. A-House’s bestest friend…just kidding Mr. A-House, I don’t want the slipper from Mrs. A-House or the punch from Midori7…..anyway, here is a quote.

    “In all, 1,035 leftover tickets to the Bowl Championship Series game cost the university $129,375, or $125 each, UH associate athletic director Carl Clapp said yesterday.”

    Apparently, tickets were left over after UH scrambled to get more tickets to address the demand but by that time, it was too difficult for those who wanted tickets to get flights out to NOLA so……

    Sorry for the bad memories….just irritates me… 🙁

  104. Kekoa July 15, 2008 8:27 am

    …And before I forget, I’d like to remind the Tsaiko Nation out there to gather any extra reams of plain bond paper, or cartridges of printer ink to donate to Doris Sullivan. Details of where to drop them off will be be provided by contacting me at kekoa22 (at) aol (dot) com

    If it is easier for you to send funds via credit card, you may do so at her web site and click on ‘donations’:

    ~ You may also contact Doris by phone to ask how else you may help at 808-261-5000…or…

    ~ email doris

    Your Kokua will allow her to continue doing the great work that she does to help our young fb players to connect with institutions that may help them obtain a Scholarship in exchange for their playing abilities. Anything you can do to help her in at a very critical time would help.

    Mahalo Doris, for all that you do!

  105. midori7 July 15, 2008 8:37 am

    Morning Tsaikos!

    AWESOME news about Billy Ray Stutzmann & Tony Tuioti! What a great way to start off the day.

    Now only if WarriorMojo can renew his chant for Manti Teo, my day would be complete…oh wait…he already did!

    ICYUL8: wow, you up really late or really early!

  106. djmitcho July 15, 2008 8:40 am

    d1 and ronnie,
    well, I bought my air ticket to boise, now I just gotta find a ticket for the game. hopefully I can still get one through UH.

  107. WarriorBasketball July 15, 2008 8:41 am


    Sorry so late in the conversation about the Damien basketball team. The team with Gilman, McGinn, and others were from the class of 1974. The starting center on that team was David Storm who also happened to be a pitcher for the baseball team. (Incidentally, Derek Tatsuno was also enrolled for one semester at Damien where he was a wide receiver on the JV team.)

    If not for the questionable travelling call on “Blue” Gilman in the State tournament game against Kailua, Damien would have probably faced Punahou (Mosi Tatupu) down the road for the State championship game.

  108. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 8:50 am


    I actually think it is time for the OIA and ILH to merge and Oahu to have one conference with different divisions. The big schools (i.e. Farrington, Waianae, Punahou, Kamehameha, St. Louis) could all be in Division I while smaller schools (i.e. Damien, Kalani) can be in Division II. You would than break up the Divisions by districts (i.e. Division I East, Division I Central). That would allow for teams to play each other and would eliminate ILH teams playing each other twice (for the most part) or having too many off weeks.

  109. Bulla July 15, 2008 9:05 am

    thanks for the heads up. i will be in Utah for the weekend and will let him know. i’ll give him your cel phone. he might be looking for a break from training and running for a day…..i had a great conversation with Coach Mack last Thursday, very interesting to say the least.

    Gigi, we shipped Ryan out solo, he needed to get a ‘taste’ of being on his own. he sounds as if he has a greater appreciation for everything now, we’ll see when we get up there.

    Once again, CONGRATS TO BILLY RAY, fyi he is 170 lbs. not 150 lbs., but still needs to beef up. he can flat out fly….hope SL has a QB that can reach him so he doesn’t have to ‘come back’ for the ball all the time. in the first 5 yards, he creates separation from the DB, it is a wonderful thing to watch……like Madden football in the flesh, haha.

    Happy Tuesday to all da Tsaikos in da hale.

  112. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 9:23 am

    Stretch…brick oven is awesome….man, I’m getting hungry. You mean they actually cook the vienna sausage?? I can remember Masu’s Massive Plate Lunch had a special that had like teri beer, teri chicken, hamburger steak, laulau, stew, and one (unopened) can of vienna sausage…..

  113. duffer July 15, 2008 9:27 am

    Great news about Billy Ray. We know we’ve got the best WR in the class of ’09. Lets get some more now! *coughMANTIcough* We have to love the direction that recruiting is taking.

    Tony Tuioti will also be a good addition. Let’s hope he can get that DE to commit…

    Stretch- my healthy oatmeal breakfast is jealous of your vienna sausage omelet!

    Au’ryte Billy Ray Stutzmann, welcome to the Warrior Ohana…

    Bruddah Craig just make sure bruddah Billy working out to fill out his frame lil bit before he come UH. If he 170 now I say a good 20lbs. of muscle will do him good. Speed already there, once he learn the system, refine the route running and develop super glue hands, he going be better than you haha. Just no teach him to punt the ball during the game. 🙂 Anyway, good to see Billy committing early, just hope he has a great Senior year and pray he no get injured…

  130. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 15, 2008 10:00 am


    Some people here on the blog are vaguely aware that my work with a non-profit focuses on sustainability/environmental/energy issues, but not very many folks know that the non-profit itself is supported in part by RECYCLING FOR CHANGE which provides a wide range of services & products to businesses, families, educational institutions, and other non-profits including planning community environmental projects and recycling drives.

    Earlier this spring, shortly after Jim Donovan came on board, RFC gave him information about the loss of revenue to the Athletic Department by not providing recycling bins at the Stan Sheriff Center, Les Murakami Stadium, the Women’s Softball Stadium, and in the Athletic Department Complex itself. In not redeeming the containers, the Department has lost an estimated $30 – $35,000 in HI-5 fees since January, 2005, when the law went into effect.

    We Tsaikos might also consider using the HI-5 redemption program to generate financial support for the Athletic Department. Would it be worth it? Yes, a very definite emphatic YES..

    Using the most conservative figures generated by the Department of Health, 800,000,000 HI-5 containers are sold each year.- that’s eight hundred million. Of the total sold, slightly under 70% are redeemed. If we were to collect and redeem one-tenth of one percent of the remainder – 800,000 – we could generate $40,000 a year in gross revenues.

    Several schools have raised an average of $20,000 a year each for their Project Graduation programs just by holding on-campus drop-off drives once or twice a month. Other community groups offer pickup services from local businesses & households as well as drop-offs and bring in two to five times as much cash. Still others run all kinds of metal and plastic recycling drives.

    In fact, there are all kinds of options and alternatives to explore. No matter how limited we start off with, IF we Tsaikos were to set up a basic no-frills all-volunteer recycling program, we would then be able to help underwrite & support everything from meals for the teams on game/match days to awards for winning WAC championships to speed & quickness camps expenses to supporting Doris Sullivan’s work.

    Furthermore, the program could be a state-wide initiative – it’s a state-wide law – so not only will we be supporting our UH athletic teams but also we’d be helping to keep Hawai`i free from litter. Definitely a win-win for everyone.

    If there is any interest in exploring recycling as a way for Tsaikos to raise money, please send an e-mail to info at recycling4change dot com.

  131. djmitcho July 15, 2008 10:05 am

  134. djmitcho July 15, 2008 10:10 am

    If any tsaikos want to play fantasy football this year, I’ve set up a league on yahoo. Since most of the tsaikos are in Hawaii I made it a live online draft. The date I set was Sunday, August 24 8pm Pacific/ 5pm Hawaiian.
    If this works for you send me an email at djmitcho at tsai-kos dot com.
    I will give you the league name, number and password. We need a min of 8 players and a max of 12.
    So far it’s me and Pauoa Boy.

  137. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 15, 2008 10:21 am

    Posted late last night:

    WANT ANOTHER CHANCE TO PARTY? Now that August is but two weeks away, is there any interest in coordinating a post-practice weekday potluck on campus in August for the football and women’s volleyball teams both of which will both be in full practice for their 2009 seasons? One possible day is Tuesday, August 19, prior to CoachHeather’s wahine-only football clinic. The Tsaiko-Guys could handle the clean up while we’re off learning new things. .

    Another possible time could be when Wafan is here, but he hasn’t posted any specifics yet because he’s traveling this week; however, he should be back amongst us by next Sunday evening.

    The event would be similar to a T-Gate Party. Its purpose, besides having fun, eating and fellowship, would be to let the teams know we’re behind them 1000%.

    Please indicate an interest in helping to plan the event here on the blog.

  141. checkraze July 15, 2008 10:33 am

    I am also kind of an FFL nut and usually have 4+ teams a year. It gets to the point where I don’t know who to cheer for until Monday Night Football. I get TJ Who’s your mama. Lock it up… Championship. (Gotta know the commercial to really appreciate that one)

  144. MeiLing July 15, 2008 10:41 am


    Good idea, & easy way, to raise funds using recycling. So, is Athletics going to start putting out bins in all of their facilities? Who, what dept., is going to take care of collection after each event? UH could actually do this all over campus. Do you know if they have bins on campus? You might send in a suggestion to V. Hinshaw.

  145. djmitcho July 15, 2008 10:41 am

    that would be great.

  146. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 15, 2008 10:43 am

    one last quick post to RONNIE:

    Are you still interested in working on “attending” the football clinic? I’ve already started working with folks in the Athletic Department, but I don’t want to duplicate your efforts or create any problems. I sent you a couple of e-mails but didn’t get a bounceback or a response so I don’t know if you ever got them. Let me know one way or t’other so we don’t wind up creating problems for anyone – info at waa-hawaii dot org

  147. Bulla July 15, 2008 10:45 am

    aloha DPK,

  148. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 15, 2008 10:53 am

    MeiLing: Just saw your post – will respond in detail later on today. Brief answer #1: Lots of recycling going on in the upper campus as fundraisers for various groups. A recycler brings a huge truck & sets up shop on weekends on campus. Brief answer #2: The containers are recycled by the City once the waste is hauled away to the landfill and/or H-Power. They keep the money, but still over 30% of the containers do not get redeemed or recycled as scrap materials.

    Have to go – my ride is here.

    howzit pride long time.

    brought ova from last post.

    damien was in the old ILH because I played against the old ILH in the termite palace back in da days.

    rememba the split cause we got paper clipping of the eventual break up form folks back home. I was in washington at the time and remember reading about it. later when I coached I spoke to many of the coaches from city schools (private-ehamada, dbothello, cchai, rmarcial and public-cmiyashiro, ewatanabe, ) about the spit. many interesting stories and opinions about the split from both sides. lots of blame placed on everybody.

    so sad and too bad they will never revive the old ILH again.


    Humble apologies…How could I forget the school at Houghtailing Street when I passed it on my way to FHS…That’s what happens when an old fut like me tries to post way beyond his regular bedtime… 😉

    Hi Kekoa,

    I was smart; I sent the missus to go for the cake. I figured she could make end run or squeeze in between Gigi and WassupDoc. She came back with da ono cake w/o being blindsided… 😉

  157. Kaimuki Kid July 15, 2008 11:14 am

    In the early 80’s the cheerleading squad used to go around the Aloha Stadium parking lot after the football games to collect aluminum cans and they used to haul away rubbish bags full of cans, enough to fill a medium size flat bed truck. The cheerleaders used to go up and down the parking rows and collect cans from the tailgaters. I think that they used the proceeds to fund sending partial squads to road games. But the practice stopped I don’t why…

  164. al July 15, 2008 11:28 am

    then the rivalries of the old ilh vs rural oia leagues.
    it was city boys vs country boys.

    i agree that a composite div1, div 2, and maybe a div 3 is long overdue. let’s get the hs teams under one banner for all sports both public and private.

    no need rotate them in or out. let the schools decide which division they want to play in by way of petition which would then be a five year committment not just when you anticipate a strong/weak team.

    i believe this will raise the level of competition overall. if the air fuel costs weren’t so prohibitive these days i would invite the neighbor island schools as well.

    and while we are at…….why doesn’t the community colleges here develop a sports program? soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, water polo, track n field, swimming could all be a starting point(s). i am not sure about football due to cost restraints, but, it could happen.

    whoa, near riot! talk about….”like beef?”

  174. homey ® July 15, 2008 11:36 am

    PB – Just to clarify the history books, after DPK came down from the mountain it was named Broke Back.

  177. Pauoa Boy July 15, 2008 11:39 am

    Yups I remember having a few run ins with the Punahou guys, all in good fun though. Also, remember a time when a couple thousand plastic forks found it’s way onto their field…wonder who did that???

    Billy Ray is seeking to do what Tim Tebow did at Florida.
    Graduate from HS in December then start college in January and thus have 5 1/2 years to play 4.

  181. homey ® July 15, 2008 11:43 am

    PB – Statute of limitations. You are a free man!

  182. 3-Prong July 15, 2008 11:46 am

    Hey ST,

    Is Koa Anuenue taking more (or maybe all) of the Inner Circle parking in the stadium than initially reported? Some premium ticket holder friends told me the situation has changed very recently because of demand. They supposedly confirmed this with the ticket office. Is this something new?

  183. homey ® July 15, 2008 11:49 am

    I saw on ESPN the other night that Tebow was saying that 20 athletes with UF ties are representing USA in the Olympics. Congrats to UF if that is true. I was kinda drowsy so I may have mis-heard.

  184. homey ® July 15, 2008 11:51 am

    Where’s gigi? Pushing people around at Liliha bakery?

  186. Mrs. A-House July 15, 2008 11:59 am

    Checking in…Good Morning!

    Billy Ray Stutzmann –

    Mahalo nui loa to you for committing to play as a UH Warrior. I have room for you in my ohana, next to your awesome brother, Craig. Momma and Poppa Stutzmann, thanks to you for producing two most excellent athletes and fine gentlemen!!

    Tony Tuioti –

    Congratulations on being selected as our new Director of Player Personnel…impressive job title…and you bring to the job very impressive credentials. Good luck and best wishes as you embark on your new job!

    Stretch –

    I love vienna sausage…right out of the can…but I cook the sausages with shoyu/sugar…cuts out the fat…and if you believe that…

    LizKauai –

    I love Brick Oven pizza…used to visit Kauai often to see A-House’s Mom and siblings. Fond memories of that folksy little building in Kalaheo…just as Kekoa described. Good choice where to meet and eat with friends.

    djmitcho –

    I miss Masu’s massive plate lunches, too. MasaBoy and A-House could put away the massive plate…Midori and I just like to watch them eat and enjoy our own teri-chicken plates. BTW can’t treat Billy Ray to a plate lunch at this time or in the next 4-5 years to come, but I’d like to watch him eat, too.

    ICYUL8 –

    My boy…if you like chat with me live, best time is lunch time or early afternoon. What the hay you doing up at 3:23 am??? No worries about the fruit…I get um…and Midori no need explain. You like my singing?? So far, only you and Chris at Kewalo want to hear me sing. Even my ohana say “ah, never mind” when I have the urge. Stephen Tsai, I know how you feel…get no respect…just love… Also, get plenty chances to sign my book…no worries.

    James –

    Wow, blockbuster update re A-House’s bestest friend. Wait til he reads your post #104. Just when I think he’s in control of his emotions again…oh boy, here we go again.

  187. al July 15, 2008 12:00 pm

    homey….scary how i can read your mind.

    you should take a mensa test.

  188. Jason July 15, 2008 12:10 pm

    Glad to hear about Billy Ray and Tony. And let’s continue to support Doris’ great work.

    djmitcho: I was going to create a league, too … Oh well, we can have two Tsaiko leagues. I’ll e-mail you now.

  189. ryan July 15, 2008 12:10 pm

    anyone get a chance to go to the camp today?

  190. Mrs. A-House July 15, 2008 12:13 pm

    Al –

    Forgot to add this…I’m a proud Kaimuki Bulldog…but yes, in my day, we were definitely the “have-nots” of the Kaimuki area. Iolani was definitely a prestigious school, and we were continually underdogs in all sports. Bulldogs did win the state championship in football (white or blue division?) a few years ago and also the state championship in basketball. Correct me if I’m wrong about the above, but can’t take away the proud moments I felt when those fine young athletes played their hearts out for the Green and Gold!!

  191. Monkeyface July 15, 2008 12:20 pm

    Gigi said: Colt and Shakti Stream — what a beautiful couple! Will they be getting married soon?
    As my wise friend used to always tell his son. “No worry ’bout da wahine boy. Only worry ’bout makin money fo’ now. Buy one car…buy one house…put some kala in da bank. Da wahine, she goin come.”

    What I’m saying Gigi, is that Colt needs to focus and concentrate on football right now. Although I’m sure Shakti is a very nice girl. Colt doesn’t need any distractions

  192. false cracks July 15, 2008 12:24 pm


    das right bruddah bu….kala goes wit anyting…i don’t see any wahine declining cash…no matter what kine bikini, pareo, tong, dress, shoes….green kala match with everyting….

    Colt needs to take care of one ting…COLT. das all, das it, das right….take care of biz, and da rest will come…..just like flys chasing da dry aku i get on top da dog house right now….some hauna, but buggag goin broke da mout…. and every horsefly and his cousin stay buzzin, but no mo chance.

    go fo it bu…no look back

  193. Monkeyface July 15, 2008 12:35 pm

    Wahines day like da dry aku foa shuah. If you get da money and da dry aku, you can get da girl. Might be Shakti…den again might not be her. You neva know. But main ting, he play football, das what counts, das what goin pay da bills. No can make like, “oh honey how come you always goin practice so early. Why you no spend one moa hour talking wit me.” “Honey how come you come home so late, why you stay after practice, when all da rest of da guys went home already, what you no love me? all da oddah wives and girlfriend, dea husbands come straight home right afta practice. Dey not fooling around in da weight room or watching extra film, dey go home to dea wives wea dey belong.” No good dat kine.

    kaimuki has won 2 state titles
    1993 & 2007

  195. SteveM July 15, 2008 12:47 pm

    LizKauai must be busy with her Kauai Cattle Call–no posts for about an hour. I hope some of the lurkers could make it–and those hidden Kauai Tsai-kos.

    Someday, I envision a Blog Party being held on Kauai … and Maui, of course!

    A Blog Party is not necessarily a Blog Anniversary party…you can only have one of those a year 🙁 Note that the first 3 Blog Parties occurred within 7 months of each other, with the 3rd being the 1st Anniversary.

    The 2008 football season is around the corner so Blog Party 5 probably won’t be until late December or January at the earliest.

  196. duffer July 15, 2008 12:52 pm

    A-House ohana,

    You have mail….

    Thanks for the confirmation of state titles. Proud moments, indeed!!

    Hey ST,

    Is Koa Anuenue taking more (or maybe all) of the Inner Circle parking in the stadium than initially reported? Some premium ticket holder friends told me the situation has changed very recently because of demand. They supposedly confirmed this with the ticket office. Is this something new?


    From the Koa Anuenue site:

    “A parking pass will be required for ALL inner-circle parking sections 1-14, the Bus Lot, and some portions of the Kam Lot…

    If the demand increase then that’s good (for reaching that monetary goal for scholarship funds), what is NOT good is people buy those passes and THEN DON’T SHOW UP!!!

    Imagine scrambling for parking in the lower lots then walking up to the stadium right past EMPTY STALLS in the reserved area.


  199. Lua Tuiasosopo July 15, 2008 1:03 pm

    CONGRATULATIONS BILLY RAY!!!!! So proud of u! Keep up the awesome work Billy Ray and look forward to watching you play with Tui!

    Bulla- Our Tui is in Utah right now…he went for a much deserved R&R (only for 7 days though). He’s coming home tomorrow…if ur in Utah call him on his cell phone (I believe Ryan has his number). We missed u at the Education 1st-Game Plan Football Academy at the Stadium. Ur friends hooked Asai Gilman up BIG TIME!!! Love u guys…email me or give us a ring when u get back from Utah!

  203. Rob25 July 15, 2008 1:17 pm

    Hi Everyone!

    Hi Mrs. A-House! I wanted so much to be there at the Bash with my Tsaiko family. I will definitely have to make the next event.

    James – You want A-House to go over the edge again. Mrs. A-House is right…just when he was in control again…you push the button!

    Great news about Billy Ray! Love to see the local boys stay home for us to watch.

    Is it Aug 30th yet? I can’t wait!!!

    LOL Stephen…your “lion sleeps tonight” voice isn’t that bad. At least you have no shame…props for that! I have to agree with Pride…as long as you have joy in your heart.

  204. Esme July 15, 2008 1:17 pm

    Seems like every time I tune in to this blog these days, there is some chicken-skin development. Awesome recruits. New staff with major cred. Some former UH quarterback signing some major contract. (*snort*) It gives me a really good feeling for where our beloved program is headed under Coach Mack and JD. Cheeee-hoo!

  205. jojo ® July 15, 2008 1:18 pm

    Oooh, I got one month advance notice for a Karaoke Call! Woohoo!

  206. homey ® July 15, 2008 1:20 pm

    SteveM – GO LARGE!

  207. homey ® July 15, 2008 1:21 pm

    HI ROB25, ESME, and JOJO!!!

    jojo…..”does it really matter any how now?”…..billy kaui

    i mean you still going jojo on us.

  210. d1shima July 15, 2008 1:24 pm


    okay. all the public schools wanted to beat punahou

    I wouldn’t limit that to just the public schools!

  211. Koa-mahu July 15, 2008 1:27 pm

    hooo, you guys make on bruaddah. I mean sistah all hot when you talk about me on the blog. i think mrs a-house still don’t know me. i am all woman try ask homey. mrs. a-house. no listen to wreck, he get broken eyeballs and he don’t know what he saying. i no like him his legs too hairy and he no shave his butt like jamie does.

    maybe i will go to the karaoke call and sing to jason he is one cutie. i know all the girls like him maryanne, koawaihine, and my hot self.

    Koakane was sharing some stuff from our last conversation. kokane you can call me back i leaf a message.

    bye gurls!

  212. Esme July 15, 2008 1:28 pm

    Which reminds me …

    It’s been days since the blog bash, but certain moments keep floating back to me. And one impression that persists is how genuine and humble both JD and Coach Mack seemed to be when I met each of them individually. They looked you in the eye, listened carefully and appeared sincerely touched when the fans lavished them with praise and thanks. I also had the same impression when I had the privilege of meeting Heather McMackin that night.

    In my line of work we deal with a lot of politicians, entertainers and celebrities, but it’s not often that they come across as so sincere. Time will tell where our program is headed, but those impressions definitely give me a good feeling about this leadership team.

    Errr… I also loved seeing JD both do the haka and take a shot with the Tsaikos. On that latter point some folks might disagree, but I think it was a cool demonstration of how he’s really a regular guy who’s as much a fan of UH and its supporters as he is a leader.


  213. homey ® July 15, 2008 1:28 pm

    al – did jojo say she was going to Phuket Thai?

  214. d1shima July 15, 2008 1:28 pm

    Thanks for the offer.
    I think somebody already taking care of my ticket for Boise. I’ll know for sure by the end of the week.
    If you can take care of yours and djmitcho’s before then, please do. No need wait for me.

  215. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 1:34 pm

    d1 — Isn’t the Boise game in November? And it’s open seating? You’re gonna freeze your buns off!

  216. Da Punchbowl Kid July 15, 2008 1:34 pm

    Yah but try ask homey who scared all the sheep off da mountain. Hint: It wasn’t me…

  217. WreckinEyez July 15, 2008 1:34 pm

    Just here, Lurking and minding my own business… and den I hear Koa-Mahu talking about my vision…

    I hope my legs keep you away! If not I am going to employ A-sports to throw rocks at you…

    Other News… SteveM, I will be there… Save me a nice corner or area out of the way… I am going to put something up.

  218. jojo ® July 15, 2008 1:36 pm

    I may have said that I was interested in going to Phuket Thai, but I haven’t confirmed it…what was the menu choice?

  219. homey ® July 15, 2008 1:38 pm

    gigi – Boise has heated seats.

  220. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 1:38 pm

    al…I thought Billy Kaui said, “Guess it doesn’t matter, anyhow.” but you’re right jojo is just gonna pull an esm…..errrrrr…jojo on us…

    Mrs. A-House – Ummmm…didn’t mean to get Mr. A-House all riled up…just was irritated by that bit of news I had to read…and thought I’d share with my TSAIKO family here…he can scream at me later…. 🙂

    koamahu – I don’t have a hairy butt…arms and legs, yes, butt, no….I think I better have Koakane call you again, you sound like you’re getting lonely….MWAHAHAHAHA

  221. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 1:40 pm

    Wreck…howzit my friend? Eh, koamahu stay acking up again…I tell you, we better have koakane or homey call her up…she’s getting restless already

  222. homey ® July 15, 2008 1:41 pm

    jojo – I don’t know what the menu choices are but I wanna see A-Sports eat the hot chiles. She was crying just eating the spicy ahi roll.

  223. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 1:42 pm

    1 HR REPRIEVE! The housepainter turned off his CD player and went home for lunch. How can he stand to listen to John Denver all day??? I am really tired of Rocky Mountain High.

    On the other hand, he is real fast. This is his 4th day on the job and he is almost finished.

  224. KOA MAHU'S CUZ July 15, 2008 1:42 pm

    Aloha all,
    Re: Masu’s (James/djmitcho/Mrs. A-House) — Yeah, miss Masu’s! I loved their slogan: “All the calories and TWICE the cholestorol!” Papa Leahey used to do that one, as I recall.
    Re: the Old ILH — I’m an old-timer from those days. Not just the public schools wanted to beat Punahou…EVERYbody did, and the tradition continues today…
    All this talk about Masu’s and pizza making me hungry. I’ll be back after fuud break.

  226. homey ® July 15, 2008 1:44 pm

    Spock you fellas in the pm…gotta roll with the hommies.

  227. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 1:44 pm

    gigi…if you stay out there with him long enough with all that paint around, you’ll be singing “Village Park High” very soon.

  228. WreckinEyez July 15, 2008 1:45 pm

    Hey James, I agree… We showed him… errrr her? I am greatful that it took care of Homey when he got lost in the mountains… I didn’t kow that we had a Big Foot in the Waianae Mountain Range..

  229. SteveM July 15, 2008 1:46 pm

    Wreck — I saw and walked in the large room. I don’t have Stretch’s surveyors eyeballs, but I estimate that the room is 2.5 times larger than the room we had next door. BIG room. My impression was too big and people too spread out (for the April 19 call)… but after the Ronnie & Rich2176 June 19 bash, it is probably just right for us now…

  230. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 1:48 pm

    The painter is quite attractive, though. Was thinking of matching him up with Liz. Seriously. I wouldn’t mind being married to him — but only if he stops listening to that blasted CD!

  231. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2008 1:49 pm

    It sure is hot out here at UH.

  232. WreckinEyez July 15, 2008 1:50 pm


    You should fight him back with you Yanni music… There you go!!! Music battle!!!

  233. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 1:51 pm

    Tell me about it, ST. No a/c right now cause the painter has to paint the window frames.

  234. al July 15, 2008 1:51 pm

    jj….you mean gg is watching the painter on every stroke?

    can you imagine……
    “hey….you missed a spot”
    “ummm, this batch of paint is slightly darker”
    “how long will it take to dry?”
    “wouldn’t it be better if you used a bigger brush?”
    “can’t you stroke it longer…like hubby?”
    “you’re going on break….your not finished are you?”
    “you’re done? would you like a becks?”

  253. SteveM July 15, 2008 2:16 pm

    d1shima has a point — I would have estimated 2 days for the paint job. 🙂

    WreckinEyez — forgot to mention the corner you want in the large Krazy Karaoke room. Come early before Bulla’s Bombers set up shop in the best corner. 🙂

    Hmmmm — haven’t heard from half the Jaeger Bombers yet. That could be reason to downsize if they can’t make it…. 🙁

    Went for a burger at halftime; by the time I got back to my seat, the sandwich was cold!

    Stephen it was 115 in Vegas this time last week…now that’s hot!

    hey homey!

    I wish I could go to Utah to get the new media guide…just gotta wait until I get my free one with my season tickets. ST-Ronnie’s tickets are with mine and I won’t get two guides….could you shoot one her way?

  259. d1shima July 15, 2008 2:24 pm


    tell him its non alcoholic becks.

    Why would anyone go to a Stake looking for a painter in the first place?

  260. d1shima July 15, 2008 2:27 pm

    I mean if there’s a backed up sink, would you go, “Oy Vey! Call Temple!”

  261. al July 15, 2008 2:28 pm

    stake? deano…stake?

  264. Bulla July 15, 2008 2:33 pm

    congrats to John Hao, new SL head football coach.

    their is a new breeze blowing at Kalaepohaku, a wind of hope with a slight tinge of good things to come……Imua Crusaders, just play Crusader football and everything will fall into place.

  265. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 2:34 pm

    OK, now we are way off-topic. Change the subject!

  266. duffer July 15, 2008 2:34 pm


    Maybe whitey would like to make the Karaoke call in August. Throw in some golf in the morning of the Karaoke and I’m sure he’ll go!

  267. J July 15, 2008 2:36 pm

    Hmm…the topic goes to football and gigi says we’re way off and to change subject. Hmm…

  268. Bulla July 15, 2008 2:38 pm


    gotcha bro, awesome times for SL, so happy for this year’s seniors!

  269. d1shima July 15, 2008 2:38 pm


    A stake is a division of the Mormon Church, organized in such a way as to constitute almost a “church” in itself

    Similar to a Catholic parish

  270. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 2:41 pm

    In Hawaii, it’s called a Ward.

  271. d1shima July 15, 2008 2:44 pm

    in each stake are subdivisions called wards, also fully organized

  272. Bulla July 15, 2008 2:45 pm


    rsvp for krazy karaoke is bulla & 3 bombers, (homey not included) she’s on his own.


  273. BG July 15, 2008 2:46 pm


    You and Whitey gotta tell A-House to lay off the bottom fish…oh wait! Black cod is butterfish. Nevah mind…really is like buttah when fresh. Just melt in da mout! 😀 But the halibut not enuff for the whole fam! Trow back and get one adult size! Bwaahahaha

    What did June say to her husband in the morning?

    “Gee Ward, weren’t you a little hard on the Beaver last night?”

  276. d1shima July 15, 2008 2:51 pm

    …but I digress…

    Congrats to Coach Hao.
    Maybe a blessing for young Stutzman.
    I’d look for SLS to get back to the R&S pronto.
    Billy Ray prolly already getting clues from Big Bro on running “sight-adjusted” routes.

    I bet we don’t see him taking a step backwards and wait for a pass anymore! (sheesh, watta waste DAT was!)

  277. chawan_cut July 15, 2008 2:52 pm


    here’s pictures of when i went to watch the ’04 debacle where timmy was supposed to break the passing record but instead got the INT one. JJ pulled him and let him break it the next week at home.
    that game was at the end of october and it was FREEZING. not sure what the exact temperature was, but their stadium only has aluminum benches. you can rent these plastic chair backs to clip onto the bleacher seats.
    we got lucky, as the wahine vball team was playing earlier that afternoon. to draw people into the gym, you could get in free with your football ticket. more than half the gym was filled with UH fans. at least i got to see one Hawaii team win that day.

  278. djmitcho July 15, 2008 2:57 pm

    The temps in Boise in October are perfect for a hoodie and a beannie

  279. d1shima July 15, 2008 3:00 pm

    Thanks for the tip!
    …and the “wonderful” trip down memory lane 🙁

  280. Bulla July 15, 2008 3:02 pm


    definition of underutilized, billy ray stutzmann as a WR at SL last football season. ouch

  281. Bulla July 15, 2008 3:05 pm

    aloha lua,

    we won’t be in utah until friday morning, glad tui got a break, time to get down to business. his oddah bruddah crusadah is looking forward to seeing him on the field on sept 6th…..strength tests this week when i get up there…..oh yeah.

    Imua Warriors!!!

  282. da princess' classmate July 15, 2008 3:06 pm

    any1 got info on the $99 road PPV package talked about in the HA today, i can’t imagine it being available only to new season ticket buyers, but i haven’t received a letter from oceanic. my parent’s haven’t received one and neither has da in-laws, so i’m assuming it only available to newbies. is that correct?

  283. duffer July 15, 2008 3:06 pm

    Mrs A-House,

    Call hubby and have him bring home some butterfish for the tailgate. Lomi some miso on the fish and throw it on the hibachi! Me and B G take care of that fish! While you’re at it, some fresh King slamon, some smoked, some fresh, and maybe if get some crab and shrimp.


    I’m sure you and Midori can clean too yeah?

  284. MeiLing July 15, 2008 3:07 pm


    It’s the sixth “F”! Boy, looks like good fishing & good fun in Alaska! A-House I recognize; is Kevin a blogger?

    I wanna go fishing! I should find out if my college buddy in Sitka can help arrange some fishing if I go visit.

  285. da princess' classmate July 15, 2008 3:10 pm

    re: John Hao, does that mean he has to give up his job at PH (if he’s still there), assuming it might be kinda difficult to have a FT federal job and be the HC at SL.

  286. Stretch July 15, 2008 3:13 pm

    d1 – can you email me your flight plans for Boise?? just in case…..

  287. duffer July 15, 2008 3:16 pm

    See this place, self guided (meaning cheap)

  288. Esme July 15, 2008 3:17 pm

    SteveM, please mark me down for the K-Call. You know I wouldn’t miss witnessing all those classic moments …

  289. whitey July 15, 2008 3:19 pm

    Aloha Tsaikos. just lurkiing and looking at the good news for UH. good to see A House catching fish. will be doing that sometime next week in alaska..

    d1shima, the man up above going get you for that one. hahahaaaahhh!

  290. d1shima July 15, 2008 3:19 pm



  291. MeiLing July 15, 2008 3:22 pm

    Thanks, duffer. I think I might be able to do some fishing with my college bud who’s lived in SE Alaska since we graduated from college. I’ll have to ask him if he knows of people who can pack the fish for me. I won’t have time for a while, though, to go to AK.

  292. Mrs. A-House July 15, 2008 3:23 pm

    Homey & James –

    Did you get mail from me?….

  293. PIAA DS July 15, 2008 3:24 pm

    Stephen…where are the picks??? You know you have them, put them up! Overall a great camp, approx 350 boys (final number should be available soon). There were definately a few standouts that excited the UH staff and you’ll see a few offers on the table shortly, I promise.

  294. whitey July 15, 2008 3:26 pm

    BG, going try to catch some king namako instead of the regular fish in alaska, but have no idea what it looks like or how to catch it. black cod is good, but ling cod is just as good. my preference is black bass or rockfish.

    mei ling, should go to alaska for fishing as it is “FUN”. just no get stuck in the muck.

  295. d1shima July 15, 2008 3:28 pm

    For which one?
    With the discussion this afternoon, I left myself open a few times.


  296. da princess' classmate July 15, 2008 3:31 pm

    i know you can’t name names but just wondering if any of those standouts were under the radar type guys. thanks

    bulla/d1…did you say Paul Goo or John Hao…oh man, showing my age.

    al…can’t imagine painting for gigi…”Stroke…stroke…stroke…can’t you go any faster..” MWAHAHAHAHHA

    d1 – coldest weather I was in was in Chicago in 1996. Was heading to DC for an EMS conference (got caught in DC in a blizzard that year) and when we landed at O’Hare, the pilot says, “Welcome to O’Hare International Airport where it is a balmy -13 below zero at the moment.” I actually stepped out of the airport just to see what that felt like…and stepped right back in as I froze my buns off…..

    Rob 25 – when I lived in Vegas, my next door neighbor was from Hawaii and he had a pool. He tells me, “Hey, after work, come over and swim with me, my wife, and kids.” I’m like “Sure. It’s da*n hot.” So, I go to his house and jump in the pool. Water was just like taking a hot bath….geez…..

    OMG — by my tally we now have ALL the current Bulla’s (Jaeger) Bombers… at a BYOB karaoke affair. 😯
    New applicants should appear at the Bomber table.

    …and, if whitey comes over, whoever takes him golfing is responsible for delivering him vertical to the Karaoke Call (I want to hear him sing more–he’s good).

    duffer –will you be coming with whitey?

  301. d1shima July 15, 2008 3:37 pm

  302. Rob25 July 15, 2008 3:41 pm

    I want to go to the Aug KK, but they are supposed to have an Aloha ceremony for the Guardsmen going to the Middle East. Gotta be there to support my hubby.

    Hmmmm…maybe I could talk him into going to the KK!

    I’ll let you know, SteveM.

    When are you going to have the menu from Al for the Phuket Thai thing? I don’t like coconut milk or curry so that leaves a lot out for me….will wait and see on that one also.

    UH Extends Road Pay-Per-View Offer
    To Season-Ticket Holders Until Aug. 1

    FootballThe University of Hawai`i Athletics Department, in conjunction with Oceanic Time Warner Cable and K5, has extended the deadline for a special discount on a five-game road pay-per-view package during the 2008 football season until Friday, Aug. 1. The previous deadline was July 18.

    Fans purchasing football season tickets by Aug. 1 will be offered the five UH road pay-per-view telecasts for just $99, a savings of $181 from the $280 it would cost to purchase the telecasts individually. This special introductory offer for the five-game road pay-per-view package is available only to the UH season-ticket holder of record and season-ticket holders can activate any Oceanic account (does not have to be their home).

  318. Mrs. A-House July 15, 2008 4:07 pm

    MeiLing –

    I do not think Kevin is a blogger. He may be a lurker though.

    Whitey –

    King namako? = “sea cucumber”?? That’s some nasty-looking delicacy. Is it as sensitive to heat when handled as regular namako? This city girl learned plenty about fishing after marrying country boy.

    Duffer –

    I clean, but Midori…she’d prefer just dining on cooked/plated entree’.
    I’ll relay your request to A-House. One freshly caught rock cod was donated to the Lodge and prepared for their dinner last night. Melts in your mouth?…wow!

    da Princess’ Classmate –

    We haven’t received our letter from Oceanic yet either. Hope we didn’t throw it out in error. Has anybody received this letter yet?

  319. FloridaTed July 15, 2008 4:08 pm

    Good evening, Tsaiko Nation.

    Hooh, boy, evrey night I come home there seems to be more good news about the UH Program. Excellent, excellent, if we’ll have the year I envision, never mind all the Mainland nay-sayers, it will be like a dam bursting. Glory days ahead….

  320. Mrs. A-House July 15, 2008 4:09 pm

    Wreck –

    If it wasn’t you who said Koakane and/or James could put me “in touch” with Koa-Mahu, sorry about that. My bad.

  321. da princess' classmate July 15, 2008 4:09 pm

    thx LizKauai – was kinda confused cuz i never received a letter, guess i’ll just call oceanic

  322. Mrs. A-House July 15, 2008 4:17 pm

    da Princess’ Classmate –

    Midori and I dropped by the Oceanic office to ask about this offer. Were told that we MUST present the letter that UH is mailing to all UH season ticket holders before we can sign up. So, we’re just waiting, checking mail everyday for this letter. Has anybody received this letter yet?

  323. (Jesse) James July 15, 2008 4:18 pm

    okay gang…I gotta go and run errands….be back later…last day off for me…..WAaaahahhhhh

  324. da princess' classmate July 15, 2008 4:23 pm

    Mrs. A-House
    it can’t be us, right?? it’s gotta be oceanic, i’m thinking. between you and me we got at least 4 letters that haven’t been received, so i don’t know what to think. how come da thing got extended and we never even receive it in the first place. kinda funny if you think about it.

  325. da princess' classmate July 15, 2008 4:27 pm

    guess gotta support budweiser/light during football season. had made the switch to miller and an occasional heineken, but if it supports the UH athletics, den i’ll support.

  326. BG July 15, 2008 4:31 pm


    I’m with you on the namako…nevah see or hear of that while in AK. Once had a 40 lb tako in a crab pot…skipper dumped it overboard when no one else wanted tako pupu for dinner…broke my heart!!! People usually don’t associate tako with AK.

    Cripes! With all the charging for baggage, will that cramp your style when shipping your loot back? I’m planning to end run that by going military…can’t afford it otherwise. I’m definitely envious of your trip soon. This was the alternating year that Betty and I were supposed to go to the Kenai…tsigh

  327. Deluxe247 July 15, 2008 4:34 pm

  335. ICYUL8 July 15, 2008 5:02 pm

    Mrs. A-House & Midori7-
    The only reason why I’m up so early in the morning is due to the fact that I get off around that time from work. So when you guys are getting your beauty rest I’m actually at work hardly working, Oops! I mean working hard!!! hehehe…. On the other hand when you guys are supposedly at work and not on the blogs lurking I’m already moemoe….

    djmitcho & PB
    I’m down to join in on your fantasy football league. Haven’t done fantasty football for awhile….

    honey ~~ Oops! I meant homey
    I appreciate the hard knocks on my bro PB. I read some of the flashes going back & forth between you 2 guys. Fudgin HILARIOUS! I no believe you said Billy Ray looks like a combo of PB and John Cusack. To much I tell you. hehehe….

    What happened to Maryknoll & Pac5 collaboration? Who was there rival back in the day or were they not considered in the ILH football competition around that time? As for Roosevelt I remember being rivals with Punahou even when the ILH and OIA changed the football program. Now every home coming Roosevelt always plays against rivals McKinley….

    the whole article
    Former University of Hawai’i and Saint Louis School quarterback John Hao has been named new Crusaders football coach, the school announced today.

    A former All-State signal-caller, Hao replaces Delbert Tengan, who resigned last month.

    Saint Louis lost to Leilehua in the state football championship this past season.

    Hao was the quarterback during Saint Louis’ dominant years.

    In the 1989, Hao led Saint Louis to the Prep Bowl title with a 35-18 victory over Kahuku. Hao passed for 330 yards and four touchdowns in that game.

    Hao played quarterback at UH from 1992-95.

  343. Kazz July 15, 2008 5:38 pm


    There are supposedly empty stalls still around even for big games like a Boise State, Frenso State, or a BCS opponent.. well, according to others as I personally have never seen this.

    Let’s hope this does not make some people shy away from the game day experience.

    Personally I am wary of this new initiative because of the possible negative implications, but I’m sure all of us here and any true UH fan will support Jim Donovan and the department’s efforts to try to find new avenues of revenue for the department, especially during these rocky financial times.

    Went to UH this morning. Met with players.
    Then went to the camp.
    Then took my son to UH’s volleyball camp for four hours.
    Now I’m off soon to visit my sister (pancreas problems) in the hospital.

    sorry my prayers for your sister also forget the question

    ST, my prayers and best to your sister. Hope everything turns out ok.

  357. Kazz July 15, 2008 6:47 pm


    Yup I tried but didn’t expect that I could. I’ll e-mail you soon when I figure out when I can meet you. Off the top of my head, the next time I have off for sure is July 31st which is a Thursday.

    But on a positive note about my experience with the game:

    On Heisman level I BEAT FLORIDA AT FLORIDA!!! 61-27!!!! Yup… Veikune recorded a safety on Mr. Heisman himself.

    Defensive schemes that gave Florida problems was the 4-4 (8-in the box with a zone blitz) and the Nickle package (with nickelback and my middle linebacker blitzing and one DE covering the flats or dropping back in coverage along with my weakside linebacker covering the middle of the field).

    For some reason Florida went for the screen pass quite a few times and it was just too easy to send my DE to the flats to make the quick tackle for either no yardage or yardage lost.

    Tebow got me a few times in the red zone as he recorded two rushing TD’s and threw a 48-yard bomb for the other one (stupid “Cover 3″…).

    LWJ got 150+ rushing yards and two rushing TDs (off of a lot of sweep-type plays).

    Graunke threw 29-41 for 350+ yards. 5 TDs 2 ints and got sacked 5xs.

    Michael Washington ran one back for a TD in the opening kickoff.

    Jameel Dowling had an interception.

    Ryan Mouton recorded 3 sacks on Tebow as my blitzing nickelback against the pass plays.

  358. whitey July 15, 2008 6:49 pm

    stevem, duffer owns the lear jet, so i got to ask him.

  359. Kazz July 15, 2008 6:49 pm

    Best wishes to your sister and family ST.

  360. Jason July 15, 2008 6:55 pm

    Kazz: Haha, nice! Okay, that date is good — if you want to fly to Madison, WI. I’m going to be there for my conference, from July 29th to August 3rd. 😀

    I guess you’re busy, so instead of a meal, I can bring you a special gift. I hope you like cheese … 😉

  361. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2008 6:56 pm

    Back in the day, I covered the ILH. My last year, I covered John Hao when he was the Crusaders’ quarterback. He would have been awesome in this offense. He had the ability to escape pressure, just like Colt. Not sure of what he’s like as a coach, but he’s very competitive. He’ll be innovative.

  362. Jason July 15, 2008 7:04 pm

    I just noticed — Liz’s #245 was the 50,000th post on the new Warrior Beat blog.

  363. curveball July 15, 2008 7:05 pm


    does he have a qback to work with now?

  364. Kazz July 15, 2008 7:09 pm


    No please. A hand-shake will suffice! No need da kine. :mrgreen:

  365. chawan_cut July 15, 2008 7:10 pm

    who was Hao back up to at UH? i know it was during my years there, but they were painful and i’ve kinda blocked them out of my memory.
    was it freitas? or earlier after the carter/macon/glover years??

  366. chawan_cut July 15, 2008 7:10 pm

    …And before I forget, I’d like to remind the Tsaiko Nation out there to gather any extra reams of plain bond paper, or cartridges of printer ink to donate to Doris Sullivan. Details of where to drop them off will be be provided by contacting me at kekoa22 (at) aol (dot) com

    If it is easier for you to send funds via credit card, you may do so at her web site and click on ‘donations’:

    ~ You may also contact Doris by phone to ask how else you may help at 808-261-5000…or…

    ~ email doris

    Your Kokua will allow her to continue doing the great work that she does to help our young players to connect with institutions that may help them obtain a Scholarship in exchange for their playing abilities. Anything you can do to help her in at a very critical time would help.

    Mahalo Doris, for all that you do!

  369. ryan July 15, 2008 7:43 pm

    Sounds like coach Mac offered 2 QB’s today and V.J. Congrads to all of them!

  370. Kekoa July 15, 2008 7:47 pm

    Breaking News Update Tsaiko Villagers!

    Doris Sullivan will be at the UH Camp this week and next to accept any of your office supply donations. She will be there until 11:30 every day. Her assistants TJ or Vanessa will also be able to accept your donations.

    Here is your chance to help someone who has helped many of our own kids get their foot in the door. Surely you have some extra plain bond paper or printer cartiridges available to share. It’s a small request, but if enough of us give just one of each, it could mean 30 or 40 reams of paper and ink.

    If you want to dump loose change in a bucket, she’d gladly accept it and even count it out for you! Again, cash – check – or credit card will work as well. Please kokua.

    Mahalo Plenty,

  371. MeiLing July 15, 2008 7:56 pm

  376. d1shima July 15, 2008 8:27 pm


    Yes, there are QB’s at SLS.
    None of whom, as I recall, would be considered a D1 prospect.
    Put it this way, while the contest was still being decided, the starter last year (a Sr.) played almost every down because he needed to be in there.

  377. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 15, 2008 8:29 pm

    What do you think of the new coach?

  382. d1shima July 15, 2008 8:56 pm


    He wouldn’t have been there for as long as he has nor have been selected today if he wasn’t capable. But what I think doesn’t matter nearly as much as what the boys do. On that count, I believe he has their trust and respect.

  383. d1shima July 15, 2008 8:59 pm

  386. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 15, 2008 9:05 pm

    Good Evening Everyone:

    A little bit of catching up while DrDoc is spending time with Wena as she deals with the Kailua Neighborhood Board. Please do NOT get me started on that one.

    MRS. A-HOUSE: Mahalo for your kind & thoughtful words. As always, you pick up on the deeds & actions of people who should be recognized.

    STEVEM: Will e-mail you concerning the KK on August 16.

    RONNIE & OTHER OFF-ISLAND OR WORKING WAHINE: Coach Heather has decided NOT to put the football clinic on the Internet this year primarily because Ching/Cooke Field will be under construction. Usually, she takes the class out onto the field to throw balls and line up for a scrimmage; however, Bianca, the football program administrative assistant, assured me that it will be on-line live next season. Under the circumstances, I didn’t want to push recording it this year and then uploading it onto one of our websites or making copies to mail to people.

    MEILING – Regarding your post earlier today concerning UH recycling policies: For the seventh year in row, legislation to mandate all public buildings and state agencies to recycle failed to pass. Couldn’t even get a resolution passed this year requesting that state agencies plan how they’re going to recycle. Alas – a lot of “green legislation” disappeared in the last five days of the session.

    According to Jim Donovan, the Athletic Department will be considering HI-5 recycling in the four on-campus venues under its control. Aloha Stadium is not included as that is operated by the Department of Accounting & General Services – and, no, they do not recycle either.

    RECYCLING FOR CHANGE is providing the Athletic Department with two prototype recycling bins specifically designed for heavy commercial use. However, there are many different styles and types which can be ordered from many different vendors so an Invitation to Bid through UH‘s Procurement Office most likely will be issued some time within the next four to six months.

    As mentioned in #149, many UH Manoa departments and offices already do recycle, and they are allowed to take care of everything & keep the money. They can provide their own bins or get them from the Facilities Maintenance Office who also provide the garbage cans; however, their bins are strictly functional – green or black garbage cans with a hole cut in the lid and a recycling sticker on the tops and sides.

    There are too many unknowns at this point, but should the Tsaikos decide to collect & process the containers at all four venues, then we would have to come up with a written plan.

    Holding bi-monthly or quarterly community recycling drives is also a viable option as a T-Fundraiser.

    Timefordindin – DrDoc is pau with his meeting.

  389. koakane™ July 15, 2008 9:12 pm

    ICYUL8 What happened to Maryknoll & Pac5 collaboration? Who was there rival back in the day or were they not considered in the ILH football competition around that time?

    back in the day Maryknoll was a solid contributor to P5. tsellito and dbothello were close and ts alway encouraged the better athletes play. the pac started to lose many good athletes when University High became a bball power and after Bobby AU (coach) left. lab school wanted the bball players to concentrate on that sport only. the morales twin, leroy lutu and craig bell were the last good players to come out of UH lab school. oh and stretch too. bwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    the pac5 conglomerates had their own rivalries among each other when they represented their own schools after fball season was done.

  390. chawan_cut July 15, 2008 9:13 pm

    LizK, just got a note from Alaska Airlines. now thru the end of the month, round trip air from Kauai to Seattle is $249 each way. need to go online with to get more info.

  392. Hoohiki July 15, 2008 9:25 pm

    I remember John Hao at SLS during his heyday. He was awesome and when he decided to play for UH, he gave alot of UH fans hope and excitement at a time when they most needed it. But somehow, I think he was misguided and didn’t live up to his potential (no fault of his) and that was that. So to hear he will be the next HC at a school with such tradition and his alma mater, is an opportunity to redeem himself. Just curious…has he had much headcoaching experience?
    On another note…when will SLS settle on a head FB coach that would remain there more than 3 years? After CL left, there didn’t seem to be any stability. Even the AD had alot of turnovers. How many HC have come and gone since the dynasty headed by CL? Maybe JH will offer that consistency and stability. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. …And the saints go marching on!….

  393. addahknowjoe July 15, 2008 9:28 pm

    Just saw a Rivals top 10 list of the best players coming out in ’09. Manti Teo is listed at #7.

    Awesome! Speaks volumes for Hawaii football.

    I’d hope there was a remote chance Manti would consider Manoa green. That would be cool.

    ST- your family is our family. We got your back. Go do what you gotta do and take care of sis.

  394. d1shima July 15, 2008 9:29 pm

    Hi chawan_cut!…There, we’re caught up. Hehehe.

    I’m glad to see that your art work had the best venue to display it, I mean wow, Pearl Ridge! How cool is that, and in the style it deserves too!

    To be able to interact with all the fans of Lego engineering must have been interesting. Did it flush out any competition for the Princess to have to worry about?…ok, sorry that was a Gigi.

    Esme and out!

  396. Curt July 15, 2008 9:32 pm

    da princess’ classmate,

    If my feeble memory serves me correctly, I thought John McNamara from the UH AD’s office said the letters regarding the pay-per-view package for season ticket holders would go out next week. He was on the Bobby Curran Show this morning.

    Duffer & Whitey ~ My wife wants to check out the Super Sloop over to your island nation. I will try to give you fair warning to evacuate low lying areas when she decides what day this will happen.

    I did want to visit with two of my relatives…Branscom Richmond and his lovely wife, the charming Mrs. Lei Ma’a. She is Pono’s sis. Branscom starred with ‘The Rock’ in Scorpian King as his bro.

    Do you think we could arrange a small kine State Dinner with them and you 2 legends of the Fall if I give you a firm date and time? You can give me a shout over my intergalactic email.

  402. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 10:08 pm

    ST, I hope your sister recovers from what ails her. A close friend of mine passed away from pancreatic cancer a couple of weeks ago. He was special because through him, I met hubby for the 1st time.

  403. Garret July 15, 2008 10:15 pm


    I hope that your sister has a speedy recovery.

  404. Garret July 15, 2008 10:20 pm

    I had some free time after everyone went to sleep…UH beat Florida 42-27 in NCAA Football 2009. I found that I couldn’t run the ball against Florida due to their stat advantage (except some draws worked and one option worked), but the slant routes and a variety of other passing plays did the job. Mouton set a UH record with 4 INTs.

    The last sports game I had was the NCAA Football 2005 version, but Lori got this for me for Father’s Day. I hadn’t played for 4 years and don’t know how to do a lot of the stuff anymore (plus, got to use the Wii remote and nunchuk when I’m used to just pushing buttons), but I was determined to see the Warriors win at the Swamp! That was far more important than sleeping after I got my work done.

    I worked with John Hao’s dad (Sr) – retired as a LTC in the Army. Same rank as Denzel in Courage Under Fire & Dennis Farina in Saving Private Ryan. Great person, great leader.

    On opposite note during tumultous ’95 season John was starting QB – heard through coconut wireless that team “Threw” some games ie 6/5 action. Esp some road blowouts. Last home game of season decision was made to replace John w/ 2nd stringer – divided the team, was Wags final season….

    Disgruntled computer engineer (who made over $149k last year) has taken over San Francisco’s new computer network, denying the administrators and users (such as the police) access to the system.

  419. gigi-hawaii © July 15, 2008 10:49 pm

    Garret, it always puzzled me why NBC would consider Conan a better draw than Leno! Conan is not as funny. If Leno indeed moves to ABC, I expect a lot of viewers will follow him.

    Someone should do a demographic survey of this younger crowd, then. How much buying power do they have?

  423. al July 15, 2008 10:55 pm

    gigi….that doesn’t necessarily translate into business being good. rather, its because of the good company that i keep and the good food at tiffany’s.

  425. Garret July 15, 2008 10:58 pm


    The advertisers pay more for shows that get the younger demographic, so networks are focused on that demo. Conan gets more of that demo, so NBC had to make sure they didn’t lose him.

    Plus, when they looked at the ages of Conan and Leno, NBC must have figured that Conan would be around longer.

  426. al July 15, 2008 10:58 pm

    I think you mean my 96hp Charger that gets 39 mpg, because thats my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Actually on my first tank, I got 19 mpg, a lot better than the trooper.

    It’s worth the drive to breakfast, wide open freeway seldom patroled by the Nevada highway patrol with my sweety by my side, Vrrooooom!

  440. ラスベガス July 15, 2008 11:37 pm

    Well, g’nite. I gotta get some beauty rest

    oh the possibilities………..

  441. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 15, 2008 11:44 pm

    I had to take a nap.
    Back up just to finish my blog and brush my teeth before hitting the pillow again.

    Had a great lunch with Addahknowsports and Stretch today.

    Then a great Rotary meeting tonight.

    whitey- thanks for the headsup. The ticket I need is a cheap confirmed flight from Vegas to Kauai on Sept. 2- hopefully at 2:30am. Right now I am looking at standby and praying for a slow night!

    Nitey nite and sweet dreams!

  442. Pride. July 15, 2008 11:57 pm

    Kekoa #396 – To be able to interact with all the fans of Lego engineering must have been interesting. Did it flush out any competition for the Princess to have to worry about?…ok, sorry that was a Gigi.

    Esme and out!

    So we got an esme, a jojo, and a gigi. I better put that in the Tsai-kos dictionary.

  443. Pride. July 16, 2008 12:08 am

    ST. My prayers go out to your sister and your family.

  444. damonstah July 16, 2008 12:14 am

    he probably can start at any D1 college right now as we speak…

  445. Esme July 16, 2008 12:26 am

    Oh, you guys. This “Esme and out” business is cracking me up. 😆

  446. Esme July 16, 2008 12:27 am

    Hi, Pride!

    Hey there, LV, almost didn’t recognize you. 😀

  447. Esme July 16, 2008 12:28 am

    And hullo, damonstah. Don’t think we’ve crossed paths before. Nice to meetcha.

  448. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 16, 2008 12:36 am

    Hi Esme!

  449. Ralph July 16, 2008 12:44 am

    Hi Esme

  450. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 16, 2008 12:45 am

    Nitey Nite!

    What’s with the little boxes where people’s names are supposed to go?
    For example: Nos. 438, 440, 441.

    Tsaikos & Tsaikettes:

    Everyday in Hawaii hundreds of patients count on volunteer blood donors for their very survival. Some have been in accidents while others are experiencing life-threatening illnesses.

    As I approach my one year anniversary of being sidesmuu’d in my delightful 1970 Bug by a very large SUV traveling ever so slightly over the posted speed limit on Hamakua Drive, I would appreciate your taking a few minutes to donate some blood to help others who are injured or sick.

    To donate you must be in good health, 18 years of age or older, weigh at least 110 pounds, and have a valid photo ID. To make an appointment or to get more information, call the Blood Bank of Hawaii at 845-9966 or visit

    Mucho Mahalos.

    Orff to bed – another busy day trying to make a nickel here and a dime there. Maybe I should stand at an intersection with a fishing net.

  452. HiFlyer July 16, 2008 1:10 am

    Hello everyone that’s still here.

    ST – Hope you sister gets well soon.

  453. al July 16, 2008 1:49 am

    howzit howzit.

  455. Lopaka43 July 16, 2008 2:06 am

    Aloha early morning/late night Tsaikos. Continuing my series of reports from the Swamp side, based on the philosophy that to beat your opponent, you must know them.

    Click on my name for link to site that Gator Fans are posting on their blog about the chances for Florida to run the table this season.

    Brief mention of Hawaii recycles the standard description of Hawaii:

    “Normally a non-conference lineup of Hawaii, Miami and FSU would be very daunting, but that’s not the case this year. Hawaii returns only eight total starters and lost its head coach in June Jones. Miami is off a horrible season and this year doesn’t look like it’s going to be much better. Ditto for the Seminoles.”

    The rest of the story provides a good summary of Florida’s 2007 season and the strengths and weaknesses of their team.

    Go Warriors!!

  456. Lopaka43 July 16, 2008 2:14 am

    Click on my name for a story by the same writer as above on the first week games.

    Here is what he says about the Florida-Hawaii game:

    “The Gators are 27-point favorites against the Warriors, who return just eight total starters (four on each side of the ball) from last year’s 12-1 squad. They covered the spread in their 2006 season opener at Alabama, dropping a 25-17 decision as 15-point underdogs.

    UF has won 18 straight season openers, winning the last 10 by an average of 36 points per game. I know it’s a monster ‘chalk’ situation, but I felt the number should’ve been 33. I think Florida scores at least 60 and takes the cash”

    That is bulletin board material for Coach Mack’s defense!!

    Go Warriors!!

  457. Kekoa July 16, 2008 3:04 am

    Lopaka43 ~ I love to see this Florida team so oblivious to what the truth of the matter is. As we get closer to 08/30/08 – I am licking my chops over the multitude of ways the Warriors will be able to inflict serious damage to the Gecko wannabees.

    If they fail to protect Tebow, our defense will make his home opener a real nightmare! The fact that the Warrior defense is going to be the strongest ever, is statement enough. The proof of that will be on the scoreboard at the end of the game.

    With the season ending injury loss of 2 key people in their secondary, it should open the door for our much improved and very balanced offensive attack, no matter who the starting QB is.

  458. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:01 am

    ST – My prayers are with your sister for a speedy recovery. In Jesus name, may she be healed.

    God Bless!

  459. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:09 am

    Aloha Tsaikos!

    Sorry for being AWOL for what seemed an eternity. Had to deal with some health issues.

    Glad to be back!

  460. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:16 am

    LV – Happy to hear all is good in the hale again. Now, the dogs can have their house back.

  461. Garret July 16, 2008 4:20 am

    Hi Hawaiibod! I hope that you are in good health now.

  462. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:22 am

    Pomai – Uncle, can you add me to the address?


  463. Garret July 16, 2008 4:26 am

    To show you how little NCAA Football 2009 respects UH (which could be a reflection of how little UH is respected be the national press before the season), after UH won at Florida 42-27 they STILL have UH unranked!

  464. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:33 am

    Hi Garret!

    Yes, much better. Thanks for asking!

    I’m happy for you and your company. May you have contiuned $ucce$$!

    Have a GREAT LoCal Call today!!

    Hope the girls are having a fun summer.

  465. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:39 am

    BHF2 – What is your email address? I need to ask you a question.

    45 days……….and counting.


  466. bighilofan2 July 16, 2008 4:41 am

    Good morning Tsaikos everywhere!

    45 days, 2 hours and counting! wooo hoooOO!!

    gotta work. gotta work.


  467. Garret July 16, 2008 4:42 am

    Interesting that high school students in Texas actually earn credits towards graduation and they plan on doubling the credit for Athletics. Athletics count as a class period for 2 years and they want to change it to count for a class period for all 4 years in high school.

    Texas high school students who play football, basketball and other sports could receive twice as much credit toward graduation under a proposed rule being considered by the State Board of Education.

    Students can now get up to two years of credit for participation in sports, which meets the current requirement of 1 ½ years of physical education and also a half-year toward elective course requirements. A credit is equal to one year of instruction in a subject.

  468. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:48 am

    ST – Great article in ioday’s Tizer re the skill positions clinic.

  470. Garret July 16, 2008 4:52 am


    My girls are having a great summer, thank you for asking!

    I’m really looking forward to the Calf Call today. It comes at a great time for me to take a break from work–we had it originally scheduled for Thursday and it turns out that I have a ton of work on Thursday that I cannot start until I get something from my partner that he won’t finish until tonight. So, I’m free today and will work tonight.

  471. Hawaiianbod July 16, 2008 4:55 am


    Thanks for your emails re UH/OSU game! My plans are still up in the air. It’s okay if you give out my email address.

    d1, the winds of change have calmed down at kalaepoahku and now the wind of promise and hope have replaced it. what a wonderful day for Crusaders, both old and new.

    i have all the confidence in Coach Hao and AD Afoa at the helm.

    ST – prayers for your sister and your family my brother….

    let all of us be thankful for the air we breathe, the life we live, and for our family and friends that are near and dear to us…..

  488. Kekoa July 16, 2008 6:28 am

    Bulla!…The winds of change signal the way of the Warrior and the new way of taking care of business. No longer is there a need to suffer long with a bad situation. Justice is swift these days. If you can’t hack it…pack it! Fraziers of the world will be put on notice much quicker,
    Papa L is watching.

  489. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 16, 2008 6:30 am


    and many, many, mora!!!

  490. Bulla July 16, 2008 6:36 am


    i like that one, if you can’t hack it, pack it…might have to use that someday, haha.

    all is good, so happy for the Crusaders….coach hao will bring excitement back to Saint Louis.

    happy for Billy Ray Stutzmann also, he needs to recover fully from his hamstring that is bothering him, and mark my words….he will be an IMPACT player for UH….he is that fast, and his hands are golden. not only that, he comes from a great family that support and love him 1000%.

    if you see Lei, give her my aloha, didn’t have too much time to talk to Pono and Lisa, but it was awesome seeing them last week. those 2, they’re ageless….and to think i introduced them almost 30 years ago, haha. they can blame me…..

  491. Kekoa July 16, 2008 6:37 am

    After further review of the LoCal menu for today, the ruling on the field remains…excessive end zone celebration against the UH Tsai-ko’s!

    Bulla ~ If I haven’t mentioned it to you before, Lei moved from their Hollywood Mansion back to the ceded lands of Maui. They’ve been wanting old friends and relatives to come visit them in their new hale. Must be time for you to pop in for a visit. I know ‘boots’ would luv to party with da ‘Posse.’

    Check out Branscombe’s *Renegade Posse Band* on his website:

  505. Stretch July 16, 2008 7:09 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    I happen to read the Mark Takai June/July newsletter that he sends out to the residents in his area. He has set up a town meeting that most of us might be interested since guests speakers will be Jim Donovan and Coach Mack.

    Wednesday July 30
    Waimalu Elem School
    7:00pm – 8:30pm

  506. Kekoa July 16, 2008 7:13 am

    Loa ~ This is one of those mornings where I had to go do something early, only to find out it was done already! So now, I’m just enjoying my coffee and sitting by my ‘virtual’ fireplace talkin’ to da Tsaiko ohana.

  507. Ronnie July 16, 2008 7:17 am

    Good Morning Tsaiko Family!

    ST – we will keep your sister and the rest of your family in our prayers.

    Hawaiianbod – welcome back.

    Kekoa – I’ll do my best to fire up the troops 😀

    Happy Birthday Merv!!!!

  508. Stretch July 16, 2008 7:21 am

    Ronnie – have fun at the CC today. Check out the stickers that Pauoa Boy will have. If you guys want more, let me know. I still have some available and can mail to whoever wants them.

  509. Pauoa Boy July 16, 2008 7:21 am

    Alojah Kakahiaka Everybody, bout to head out to our LoCal CC…

    Had to get this off my chest about the NCAA 09 Football game. First of very, very pissed how the UH roster is AFU. Numbers, heights, weights, ratings for players are off. Some players like uh um our possible starting QB Inoke Funaki isn’t even there??? What da heo? Game play still the same. Gotta agree with Kazz on this one that the PS2 version is crap!!! Oh well, once again no respect. I guess we just have to kick everybody’s arse again this year!!! GO WARRIORS!!!

  510. Kekoa July 16, 2008 7:21 am

    That was the cool thing about living in cold country during the football season. Use to come back from watching Kimana practice or play football and rush into the hale straight to the fireplace to warm up by the fire.

    Then we would continue talkn’ about woulda, coulda, shoulda, regarding the plays of the day. A nice hot toddy for the body to cut the trail dust and…ahhh!

  511. Stretch July 16, 2008 7:21 am

    Happy Birthday Merv!!

  512. Pauoa Boy July 16, 2008 7:24 am

    Aunty Ronnie – I’m on my way…

  513. Kekoa July 16, 2008 7:32 am

    Snap out of it Marine!…Go after the people who produced this kaka called ‘NCAA 09’ and let them feel the spirit of the bayonet! Report back when the target has been eliminated.

  514. Bulla July 16, 2008 7:32 am


    1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven’t eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

    2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

    3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away ?

    4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?

    5. This is an unusual paragraph. I’m curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

    I’ll post answers later…thought this would get everyone going, haha!

  515. Bulla July 16, 2008 7:33 am


    we should coordinate with bill to when we are ‘allowed’ back on the hill, since now we are only ‘has beens’, haha. it will be fun….

  516. djmitcho July 16, 2008 7:36 am

    Good Morning Tsaikoland. Just wanted to say hello before I got busy for the day. Gotta sit and wait at the DMV to get my driver’s license renewed and then off to the dentist to have my cracked tooth looked at. Hopefully they can fix it and not have to remove it. Check you guys out later.

  517. djmitcho July 16, 2008 7:38 am


    4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?

    The day before yesterday, yesterday, and today!!
