Day 5: Heating up

Well, it was indeed hot out there as this morning practice expanded to three hours.
And things heated up with the 1-on-1 drills between the linemen. The best battle was between left tackle Laupepa Letuli and right end Elliott Purcell. Let’s just say it went into overtime.
• Adam Leonard, Clarence “Lafu” Tuioti-Mariner and John Fonoti did not practice because of what are termed as non-serious injuries.
• Greg McMackin said he has “an idea” about a pecking order at quarterback, but Inoke Funaki, Greg Alexander and Brent Rausch will continue to share an equal number of snaps through next week.
• Of the newcomers, cornerback Jeramy “JB” Bryant has been very impressive.
* * *

Word on the street is that sportscaster Steve Fiorino will be leaving KHNLNews 8 to accept a position at Maryknoll School. Say, is that Wailele Salas back in town?
* * *

Happy birthday to Liane Yim.

* * *

Congratulations to today’s wedding couple — Radina “Diko” Chung (my sister-in-law) and Mike Bates.

    I’d still go small claims and hearing wit da subpoena an da tow truck driver tellin da court he took your car “without knowin who made da proper authorization.” cya is what he doing, no like lose da contract, but you can force da issue in your hostile work environment issue. sayin no can is one thing, but taking physical possession makes em a bailee and then the stuff getting busted is property damage, an if the tow truck driver busted da stuff to take it away, without getting proper authority…

    yep bradda Mike, i tink you get chance fo go HR and find out who went give em authority to “buss you up” find out who is hostile cuz yu get one bettah lookin chick, bettah lookin, yada yada. i tinkin da bradda jus no like yu so he makin one excuse, instead of callin yu yella….

    best yet, go talk to WMojo, he seen dis kine stuff b4. me, i’m thinkin akshun Jakshun! da key, Stretch… wea’s da key…

    terrible news about your motorcycle, Mike. I hope you’re compensated for all that damage.

    Funny, my dad’s car was towed once, but there was no damage to it. Yeah, I parked it on Dole Street in a tow away zone. How was I to know there was a sign half a block away?

  25. bighilofan2 August 8, 2008 7:39 am

    speakin ah yella…
    mike i get issues 2…

    Kai Opua, get dis big opu guy, called a DQ from far away, den neva own up to being da one who called da DQ right away…. den day spent hours lookin at da video, and no can tell DQ. but he wen call it and the video neva disprove so da rule is yu go wit da caller… an he da race director for Hawaiian Canoe Racing Assn this year.

    great to hear about LWJ, props to him since he’s been taking a beating on wsn and others. really hope it’s a sign of things to come since we’ll definitely need him this year. doubt that all that extracurricular stuff will be a problem when it comes to game time.

    Aloha Tsaikos! I hope the injuries do not prevent our power running backs from making the trip to Florida. We need them to keep the Florida D in check. Here’s a little trivia:
    Look at your clocks at 8 minutes and 8 seconds after 8 oclock this morning and it will be 8:08:08 on 8/8/08! Have a lucky day!

  34. chawan_cut August 8, 2008 7:59 am

    Good morning Tsaikos and Tsaikettes…

    Just stopping by for a quick visit. Lots to do today.

    DPK…fit?? I think that’s an oxymoron…MWahahahah…J/K man…

    Mike, dayummm. Sorry about your bike man. I know the feeling as a fellow bike owner/rider. I got po’d when I had to drop my bike once…only scratched the tank and pegs…but geez….hope things work out.

    Gigi…towing a car and bike are two different things. The tow company has to have the right equipment. Motorcycle shops tow motorcycles on a specific trailor with tie downs. Tow companies don’t always have that type of equipment and have been known/seen to tow bikes using a harness that hangs from their tow crane…really bad….

    • And … drum roll! … I’d like to specially invite the Tsaikos to please stop by at 10:30 a.m. Monday when I’ll have Heather McMackin as a chat guest!

    yeah, homey, I agree. I should not have written those letters to the editor and to the BOR re firing poor Herman.

    Like I said, when given the choice of being right or being kind, always choose to be kind.

  119. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 10:16 am

    gigi – you could pop in a DVD of the Hawaii/Washington game and watch them overcome an early deficit to win! That would make laundry exciting!

    Did you ask your hubby if he wants to join us at Genji’s for the early game?

  120. SteveM August 8, 2008 10:16 am

    Mike — re: Bighilofan2 comment #21 captures one of his more secret lucid moments 🙂 makes a lot of sense. Spooky, no? Think of the culprit waiting and squirming for the hearing.

    Aren’t those TV screens at Genji ultra small? I would love to eat that breakfast, though. Puts nutrisystem food to shame.

    But, nah, we’ll watch the game on our HDTV.

    Colt Kismet:

    “What did (or didn’t) you see in Josh Johnson (QB out of San Diego University) that you didn’t draft him in the later rounds? The questioner asks “because he had better numbers than Colt Brennan and is much faster.”

    We liked Josh Johnson a lot and brought him in before the draft as a visit. He played in a West Coast type offense coached by Jim Harbaugh in San Diego. He’s a guy we had a lot of interest in, and we did a lot of work on him.

    He got taken in the fifth round [by the Buccaneers], and we didn’t have a fifth round pick. We filled some other needs in the third and fourth rounds. If he had been there in the sixth round when we took Colt, he would’ve been a consideration. But that’s part of the draft. You sit there and wait, you target certain guys, and you have needs in other areas. So the way it played out, he wasn’t available for us to consider, but he was a guy we definitely liked a lot.”

  135. Hawaiianbod August 8, 2008 10:31 am

    Gonna put this out there again because I know more Tsaikos will want in. Anyone wanting to play fantasy football, I have a league set up on yahoo. The live online draft is on Sunday, August 24, at 8pm pacific/ 5pm hawaii. So far it’s me, pauoa boy, jason, checkraze, J and I think homey(couldn’t tell by the name). We need a minimum of 8 and will have a max of 12 players. If you want to play, send me your email address and I will send you the invite. You can email me at djmitcho at yahoo dot com

    Settling down…
    “It’s quiet at Redskins Park today, as far as access to the players is concerned. The morning’s “mock game” (apparently Coach Zorn doesn’t agree with the term “walkthrough”) was closed not only to the public and the press, but to staff as well, and there’s no player availability the day before gameday….

    The quarterbacks. Jason Campbell has had a terrific week of practice following his strong showing in Canton, and I want to see if it translates again. Nothing too shocking there. As far as Colt Brennan, we’re rapidly reaching the point where I’m even more interested in watching everyone else react to him than I am in watching him … although another showing like last week would certainly be fun to see. And Todd Collins is learning his first new playbook in a long time, so it’ll be interesting to see how he’s doing with it. I’ll be especially watching the speed that the QBs show getting out of the huddle and into plays, as that’s something that Coach Zorn emphasized last week. ‘

    Normally, paycheck and half of tips went to Mrs LV.
    My portion of tips went to stuff like son’s schooling expenses, computer stuff for me and FUUD at L & L.

    With fewer working hours and cheapo customers (plus buying the car) I’ve been giving her 90% of gratuities and letting her take care of all the bills.
    With my 10%, I must pay car loan, so no L & L since over a month.

    Zorn May Shuffle QB Rotation In Bills Game

    “It’s the experiences in the game that I want to give them,” Zorn said. “It’s possible that I may want to give Colt Brennan a two-minute drill. I’ve got to see that and I’ve got to give him that experience. So we may mix and match as we go along.”

    Brennan said on Thursday that he was nursing a “tight hamstring,” but he expected to play.

    He had not yet been informed of the quarterback rotation beyond Campbell.

    Even so, Brennan does not interpret any change in the rotation as a promotion.

    “Everyone knows that Todd has [the No. 2 quarterback position] down,” Brennan said. “Even the coaches ask him for advice. I think [Coach Zorn] is maybe just trying to get the rookies and young guys more work.”

    A couple people here have asked how they could see the Florida game. For those who can’t get or don’t or can’t get ESPN Gameplan, I believe our game will be streamed live on Yahoo! Sports.

    I’ll have to confirm this as we get closer to game time.

    Thankfully there will be a decent showing for the green and white at these two marquis road games this season. Hopefully such support can boil over into the Fresno and Boise games as well.

    Hi Liz!

    I’ve posted once. I see what they mean about so many threads on Colt, but I also agree that a lot of the views are stated by only a small percent of the total fan base… Not to mention the fact that the white text on black background gets to me after a little while – my eyes aren’t getting any younger…

    Your vision could get better if the techies are in charge…hehehe

    Looks like Boise is definitely going to be out. I used up too much vacation this year (Sugar Bowl, three weeks Spring Break, camping and Las Vegas). I have to save the rest for Fresno, Texas and Xmas in Cali and Vegas.

    Sorry I could get a pic to you yesterday. There was a certain tree in my way. Funny thing, I heard two guys behind me talking about coming back in the middle of the night and cutting said trees down because they were blocking the view.

    The blog IS a family blog. I happen to like Camels.

    BTW, obviously some practices have been running past 2hrs. I thought the NCAA held a heavy hand saying that practices are allotted for X-amount of days and have to be 2hrs… Or was this only for the spring? OR is it because UH has to leave for Florida and the allotment of practice days at home are less so there are extra hours to be used for the days they are here?

    I believe Mel Kiper is spending his day attempting to destroy video and audio evidence that he was backing “First Day Failure Flacco”?


  232. da princess' classmate August 8, 2008 12:41 pm

    kinda wanna beat teams, especially at home when they’ve got all their bullets, but htis is a slightly different scenario than fla losing their AA tight end.

    looks like Cincy’s QB Mauk’s final hopes for a 6th season were dashed 2day.

    oh wells

    their D will still be very very good and very very fast

  233. gigi-hawaii © August 8, 2008 12:42 pm

    kazz, I guess all that height and weight didn’t help Flacco. Strong arm, blah blah blah.

    Colt outshone him for sure.

  234. da princess' classmate August 8, 2008 12:44 pm

    4got flacco kiper’s a wacco stat line wasn’t it something like

    0-3, 2 picks 1 fumble and 1 deer in da headlights look 😆

    Gigi, when I heard all the talk about the other QB’s, I didn’t hear them say anything about “height, build, etc…”.

    To me, all I heard was “anything but the kid from HAWAII”.

    Sure, they’ll take a DE, LT, or LB… but God forbid someone playing a “skill” position from UH is legitimate or can be legitimate.

    The “Hawaii” bias is not a myth to me.

  243. Loa August 8, 2008 12:53 pm

    dpc – didn’t that guy with the nice hair pick the wazzu qb over manning too?

    Just got back from my first practice. They all looked like they are working hard. I am really impressed with the way the practice is run,very organized. I mostly watched the QB’s and receivers. I have to say my vote is for Alexander…..

  248. d1島 August 8, 2008 12:57 pm

    Too funny; forgot to finish ’em

  249. da princess' classmate August 8, 2008 12:58 pm

    ah yes how could we 4get about ryan leaf, shouldn’t the bolts be able to pursue theft charges against him, wanna see what junior seau really thought of him as he was pulling him away from that reporter in the locker room.

  250. Kazz August 8, 2008 1:01 pm


    Speaking of… Dennis Dixon going before Colt was almost, if not MORE laughable than Flacco. Yeah Dixon played in the PAC 10, blah blah blah, BUT if people wanna talk “system” what the hell is more “systematic” and more anti-NFLish than a QB thriving off of a wacky spread option offense?

    Plus his build is a FAR cry from what Colt brought to the table.

    This guy hurt himself and ended his college career earlier than expected and it will be interesting to see if he can even roll out of the pocket without getting tempted to run the ball.

    He’d get his clock cleaned in the pros!

    It’s funny for me because I was rooting for Oregon last season (well, anyone but USC would have been AWESOME) and I still cannot believe how that team FELL APART after Dixon got hurt.

    Goes to show:
    -How one dimesional they truly were at the end.
    -Dixon was a good COLLEGE talent.

    BUT again, we’re talking Dixon in the NFL… At QB, I DOUBT IT!

  251. gigi-hawaii © August 8, 2008 1:01 pm

    Although Zorn complained that Colt was “scaring” him because of risky throws, Zorn also praised Colt’s accuracy.

    I think that was a good thing he said.

  255. gigi-hawaii © August 8, 2008 1:07 pm

    kiper, da viper…

    I guess he is hoping that Colt will be a mere 1-game wonder and go downhill from there.

    Someone ought to throw a pie at da viper’s face!

  256. (Jesse) James August 8, 2008 1:08 pm

    gigi….now try and google “moose knuckle” or ask hubby…he might know…

  257. Kazz August 8, 2008 1:08 pm


    Some people are being too hard on Zorn’s comments.

    I believe PridePeriod had a REAL great post about it a while back.

    But I agree with Zorn’s analysis, not so much his choice of words. With rookie talent, people around him who are looking out for his future sometimes will have to protect him from himself.

    NOT to say Colt will let the praise get to his head, but we are all human and gotta be careful of it and Zorn was doing just that AND being truthful to what he expected Colt to do.

    But we all know. Ultimate goal of football is to win and to win you gotta get those TD’s.

    But there is a method to the madness in the steps coaches scheme to get to that endzone and we will never see it or understand it, but the reasoning is there.

    Zorn believes in Colt, we believe in Colt, and Colt believes in Colt.

    As long as Colt keeps a level head, does what Zorn asks of him EXACTLY as he as he wants, Colt will return to Aloha Stadium as a Pro Bowler!!!

  258. Loa August 8, 2008 1:08 pm

    nah, James, I don’t wanna know… not after googling camel toe.

  260. da princess' classmate August 8, 2008 1:09 pm

    speaking of system QB’s — how in the world did alex smith get to be da #1 pick. slow unorthodox motion, but b/c he had one great year in a college system O, NFL execs think he’s deserving of da #1 pick. what a joke. he’s gonna get beaten out by sean hill or something o’sullivan.
    WHHHHAAAAAT, WHHHOOOOO. no urban meyer qb has succeded in the league, no bowling green, utah, chris leak. what will T-bow do??

    hate 2 look backward but would’ve been interesting to see where colt got drafted if he had a typical colt game in da sugar bowl. but that’s behind us now and he’s in a great situation in washington with a qb/head coach who i think has fallen in love.

  263. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:16 pm

    FWIW, I don’t think Flacco threw 2 ints. in his first inauspicious NFL game. He faced average high school players in college and to expect him to play exceptional against NE’s 3rd and 4th stringers is crazy. I can only say this now since he didn’t do to well… 😆

  264. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:18 pm

    Thanks for the update ST. Good to see the players getting feisty!

  267. Jason August 8, 2008 1:20 pm

    2005 was just a bad year for QBs, everybody reached higher than they should.

    Alex Smith: 1st overall vs. 2nd-3rd round grade (my 2005 grade)
    Aaron Rodgers: 24th overall vs. 3rd round grade
    Jason Campbell: 25th overall vs. 3rd round grade
    Charlie Frye: 3rd round vs. 5th round grade
    Andrew Walter: 3rd round vs. 4th-5th round grade
    David Greene: 3rd round vs. 5th-6th round grade
    Kyle Orton: 4th round vs. 5th round grade
    Stefan LeFors: 4th round vs. 7th-FA grade
    Dan Orlovsky: 5th round vs. 7th-FA grade
    Adrian McPherson: 5th round vs. FA grade
    Derek Anderson: 6th round vs. 6th-7th round grade (those 6th rounders…)
    Matt Cassel: 7th round vs. FA grade
    Ryan Fitzpatrick: 7th round vs. FA grade

    Ah, if we had drafted Braylon Edwards instead of Alex Smith. Funny, cause that same year we drafted Frank Gore in the 3rd round, and I had him as one of the steals of the draft, a 1st round quality player if he stayed healthy.

  268. 3-Prong August 8, 2008 1:21 pm

    For those attending practice: Did you notice if LWJ is putting his shoulder into defenders to break tackles or has he just been using speed to get through the holes and around the corner? I want to see him put some of that 200+ lbs into someone this year. Go Warriors.

  269. (Jesse) James August 8, 2008 1:22 pm


    So, anybody going to practice tomorrow???

  272. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:25 pm

    dpc – deer in the headlights is being overly kind. He was probably chitting bricks and had to throw his DII jockstrap away.

    In defense of Flacco, I hope he does better next game because what do the Ravens have? Boller and Smith as the other QB’s? Good thing their defense is decent.

  273. Stretch August 8, 2008 1:25 pm

    gigi – this is a pic of a camel toe – enjoy!!

  274. Rob25 August 8, 2008 1:25 pm

    Ronnie – I was getting excited about celebrating in Boise until I looked at the cost of airfare! Yikes…that would scare any normal person.

    WM – You know that the twins and I were only looking at any possible health issues when they were taking off their gear ie. bruising, possible injuries, unbelievable pecs…

  275. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:27 pm

    Jason – Whoa! 2005 really sucked for QB’s!

  276. HiFlyer August 8, 2008 1:28 pm

    I surprised that no one here has mentioned that the BOE has to voted to spare JV sports.

  277. Stretch August 8, 2008 1:28 pm

    curveball – you was at practice?? How come you no say Hi??

  278. Stretch August 8, 2008 1:30 pm

    Rob – airfare was about $400 to portland/seattle then another $160 to boise

  279. d1島 August 8, 2008 1:30 pm


    It’s a possibility. What time is practice?

  280. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:31 pm

    Hiflyer – we all knew that already. Oh, you weren’t on the email list…sorry.

  281. Jason August 8, 2008 1:32 pm

    homey: 2005 was exceptionally weak, but really, it’s been weak for quite a while. I could make a post with all the QBs since 1998, and you’d be shocked at how poorly these NFL teams evaluate and develop QBs (cause development is key). That’s why I never trust anybody but myself when it comes to QB evaluations.

  282. (Jesse) James August 8, 2008 1:34 pm

    8:30 – 11:30…I was going to go around 10.

    Hi JOJO

  286. curveball August 8, 2008 1:38 pm

    Honestly I am not sure who anybody is by sight. I know who ST is but I didnt want to bother him. He was talking to a big guy at mid field..

    homey..I like Alexander because of his foot work, accuracy and his zip on the ball. I also like his size in combination with some of those taller receivers and his size will be able to pick up some of the smaller ones like #21 and #5 who are both real fast. I did not see #21 drop one ball today while I was there.

    Also went to Genji’s after for a cold one…. I am in for the Florida game

  287. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:42 pm

    Jason – If not the QB then what position is evaluated the best by the NFL team experts?

  288. g-nalo August 8, 2008 1:42 pm

    Tizer – free “Valet” parking.

  289. Stretch August 8, 2008 1:44 pm

    curveball – if you said a “fat guy at midfield”, I would have said that was me. Check out SteveM’s site and look at some of the pictures.

    Also, next time let me know you were going to Genji’s, I would have joined your for a cold one…. soda right??

  290. jojo ® August 8, 2008 1:44 pm

    Oh yeah, sorry
    HI (Jesse) James
    are you the spammer? I thought you’re the gym king.

  291. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 1:46 pm

    curveball – thanks! I’ll be there on Thursday to see for myself. Should I watch the QB’s or should I watch the RB’s go through their drills? Or maybe watch the D beat up some bag. I leave the o-line to WM and Pride. I trust their judgment. Linebackers no need watch, they are that good!

    Maybe I’ll stay by myki and sjmacro and watch my fav receiver!

    See you at the Florida game!

  292. d1島 August 8, 2008 1:47 pm

    curveball – you was at practice?? How come you no say Hi??

    Hmmm….I guess somebody wasn’t so “busy” today after all 😉

  293. Rob25 August 8, 2008 1:49 pm

    Thanks Stretch…but Ronnie wants me to fly into LAX. On top of that I am going on to Austin TX to see my hubby at Fort Hood before they ship out to Iraq.

    Homey – Unfortunately, or fortunately in some cases, I haven’t seen Tsaiko men taking off their “gear” *tsigh of relief*

    Who started this camel toe thing? First, the tree and then this…I only found out what this is last year. TMI, wish I didn’t know.

    Stretch – soda, huh…is that like your meeting at Ala Wai?

    Homey – I sat by myki and sjmacro Wednesday and Thursday. She was sweet enough to let me use her beach towel yesterday. They come prepared with a roster and everything.

    The RB’s were practicing in the endzone so I couldn’t see them as well. We had a great view of the 7 on 7s, QBs and receivers, and the DBs. All of this in the shade of a tree…hopefully not the infamous tree!

  304. Stretch August 8, 2008 1:57 pm

    homey – don’t think I seen him out there today

  305. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 1:58 pm

    Hi PB!

    I think that Alexander is looking the sharpest out of them all. His height is a definite advantage.

  316. curveball August 8, 2008 2:07 pm

    Who is #89..he was working on his hamstring towards the end of practice..did not look real happy about it…

  317. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 2:11 pm

    Rob25 – Are you going on Thursday?

    Stretch – still waiting for his papers I see.

    jojo – Tell us where to meet you and I promise we’ll show up.

    malcolm lane is No. 89.

  321. al August 8, 2008 2:12 pm

    it seems that many a person i speak to have been impressed with alexander the great.

    sounds like he and inoke may be neck and neck at this point. perhaps next saturday’s scrimmage will be the final test?

  322. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 2:13 pm

    Howzit Aunty Rob25…
    Sorry I’m biased on Inoke Funaki, I think he has an “it” factor about him that needs to be let loose on the field. Plus he’s a leader and well respected by his teammates. I feel he is one of those guys who can will his team to a win with his presence on the field…IMHO

    Alexander from what I saw at practices has a strong arm, but I dunno how he’s been developing, so I’ll take your word for it…cause I’ve only heard good things about him lately…

    Rausch I think can wait a year actually, I don’t see him in the mix too much???

  323. (Jesse) James August 8, 2008 2:16 pm

    SteveM…please add curveball to the Florida game Tsaikogate TV viewing attendees…thanks…

  324. curveball August 8, 2008 2:18 pm

    After running his last pattern,Lane #89 grabbed his hamstring and went over to the side (by the trees) and began stretching it out. A trainer came over and worked with him on it until the kicking practice began.

  325. Hawaiianbod August 8, 2008 2:18 pm

  326. Kazz August 8, 2008 2:18 pm

    James, I’ll be at Manoa tomorrow but I’ll probably leave a little before the 11:30 finish time so I can make it to work on time.

    Hiflyer, please e-mail me at tsaikotailgate (at) gmail (dot) com.

    I do not have your e-mail address and I will need it for t-gate purposes.

  327. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 2:19 pm

    al – I don’t know about being neck and neck since ST hinted that Coach Mack has an idea of a pecking order…

  328. Rob25 August 8, 2008 2:19 pm

    Homey – I doubt that I can make Thursday’s practice because it’s in the morning…or I could pull a “Stretch” and come up with some work related excuse. Then I’d have to pull an “Esme” and whoosh out of there or a “Homey” and be missing in action. Short answer…not sure as of right now.

    The tree didn’t look too sad, crooked, but not sad.

    I don’t remember seeing Taylor yesterday, but saw him the day before.

    I am unsure of who I am missing from the “e-mail” list for the tailgates.

    There will be a few small changes this season and I need to get the word out when things are confirmed. I hope to do this by the end of next week.

    For those that have not been in contact with me before about our tailgates please e-mail me at tsaikotailgate (at) gmail (dot) com.

    Also there MAY be a few people that DID e-mail me last season but I may not have saved your e-mail address OR you may have changed it. If you are unsure, best to be safe than sorry so e-mail me anyway to confirm.

    We are approx. 647 hours away until the FIRST home game of 2008!!! LET’S SET THE TONE RIGHT FOR AN AWESOME SEASON!!!

    2008 UH Football Season Tickets

    I called the UH box office late in July and they told me they look to mail out the season tickets the week of August 18th. I *believe* (don’t quote me on the following) they mail them out using USPS Certified Mail so they can verify who received them as a signature upon delivery is needed

    This seems about right as they get them out near to the beginning of the first home game. The tickets are printed out on the mainland and thus they have to be shipped here.

    Like years past, I have always requested UH to hold my tickets at the box office at Manoa for me to pick up in person as I do NOT feel comfortable with it sitting in my mailbox or someone else “borrowing” them… But that’s just me.

    Florida and Oregon State Tickets

    They also informed me that those who purchased tickets to the Florida game “SHOULD” have received them already or they are a few days away from getting them. They couldn’t give me a date for the Oregon State tickets but since the Florida game is sooner they are getting those out faster.

    Those in question should call the UH Box Office at 956-4482.

  356. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 2:51 pm

    homey – sorry I was fixing my NCAA roster and started moving guys around. Yeah I kind of think Steiny is too slow for Tackle especially against more athletic DE’s. He does well against WAC competition but I see him get beat alot against faster guys. I’d even go as far as to switch Estes back to G and Lafu to C… We’ll see what happens in practice, I ain’t the coach and I believe Coach Smith needs to solidify the starters soon once the QB depth is set in stone!

  361. Ralph August 8, 2008 3:08 pm

    I watched the Boise game on Wednesday and our O line tackles couldn’t handle the speed rush of their DE…Colt got hurt in the Fresno St game when he got flushed out of the pocket by the RDE beating Ah Soon and Colt got clocked by the LB – concussion….and we all know what happened in the SB, seemed liked we played with 2 guards and a center…

    I’d like to see Pepa and Kia at tackles, and give Hisatake and Thomas a shot at Guards…use Ah Soon and Steinhoff as utility guards/tackles to give the starters a breather…

  362. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 3:11 pm

    Wow Ralph you sure are shaking up that o-line!

  363. sjmacro August 8, 2008 3:17 pm

    PB: Dan Kelly and Symonds walked in to practice together this AM. It was almost Mutt and Jeff. But Symonds has some leg…matching Kelly with distance and accuracy during FG drills–sjmacro

  364. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 3:18 pm

    I have faith in Coach Smith in that he will see the strengths, nuances, weakness, ability, and whatever qualities are associated with each o-line position and make the best depth chart he can and develop the players from there. The best coaches are then ones who can tell immediately what player is suited for which position. But the thing that is hard to measure is the heart and desire. I think Ah Soon has those intangibles and will be an outstanding guard.

    Height at the O-line has been always at front of discussions for a bit.

    Let’s see (based on Ralph’s version of the o-line):

    Laupepa Letuli – 6’3″
    Aaron Kia – 6’5″
    Estes – 6’2″ (someone correct/confirm this)
    Ray Hisatake – 6’4″
    Adrian Thomas – 6’5″

    Assumed Starters:
    Kia – 6’5″
    AhSoon – 6’1″
    Estes – 6’2″
    Lafu Tuioti-Mariner 6’3″
    Keoni Steinhoff – 6’3″

    Seems like Ralph’s version does have the “height” advantage, but while the left side is a crucial piece of the puzzle, there are concerns (with many people) at the RT position, so… eh, we’ll see.

    Again, we must trust the decisions of the coaching staff come August 30th. Besides Coach Mack has made it clear that he is MORE than willing to make ADJUSTMENTS in the interest of WINNING.

    homey: Symonds can borrow two pounds from Joe Avery. 🙂 By the time Kelly leaves or if not now he should be able to get it out of the endzone. He was trimming the trees that are behind the video tower pad that’s on the hill behind the end zone from about 20 yds out. I think can. Both of them hit the lift and almost the video guy way up there.

  381. homey ⑤ August 8, 2008 3:46 pm

    Loa – I looked at the PC 16’s roster and many are already on the PC high school team. Hey but more power to them if they can go to private school!

  382. d1島: August 8, 2008 3:50 pm

    Kenny Carter moved from Vandy to coach the RB’s for Urban Meyer. He’s got a lot to put back in the toy box everyday.

    “We have somewhere between 10 and 11 guys that we can get the ball to and feel like they have a chance to go to the house,” said Carter, who came to Florida after four seasons on the Vanderbilt staff. “As long as they know what’s going on at that position and understand what their responsibility is when the ball is snapped, that’s all that matters.”

    One of those is obviously Percy Harvin, who’s been limited to start practice after undergoing heel surgery in the offseason. But he’s now weighing 205 pounds and has the look of a tailback.

    “Percy’s a guy you’ve got to get the ball to, whether you get it to him at receiver or get it to him at tailback,” Carter said. “You get him the ball. You make sure he touches the ball. He’s one of the best players in the country. It doesn’t matter where he gets it from. What matters is that he gets it.”

    Carter’s not going to put a limit on how many guys he’ll play in the backfield. Sophomores Emmanuel Moody and Mon Williams and redshirt freshman Chris Rainey will all get their chances, Carter said.

    “If you have guys that are productive and you don’t skip a beat, then play them,” Carter said. “You don’t bring guys to a place and sit them if they’re productive.”

  383. Loa August 8, 2008 3:51 pm

  385. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 3:53 pm

    sjmacro – he must be good if Coach Mack not really looking for a K and already has him taking over for Kelly next year… Maybe they need to check Symonds for steroids in his legs…

  386. Rob25 August 8, 2008 3:54 pm

    sjmacro – I missed you guys this morning…was thinking about you there under your tree!

    What time is practice tomorrow? Might have to go watch if hubby doesn’t get released from Schofield tonight. I haven’t even seen those kickers kicking anything. Symonds is so skinny it looks like the wind could blow him over, but he sure can run.

    I like Funaki, but I think that Alexander might win out. We’ll see how it goes. I wasn’t as impressed with Alexander during the workouts as I am seeing him work with the whole team. During workouts I was more impressed with Rausch and Funaki…now things are changing.

    I’m not sure that Avery could afford to give Symonds one pound let alone two. The Iceman is looking thick…in a good way. He’s looking manly…as opposed to a boyish frame.

  387. d1島: August 8, 2008 3:56 pm

    With Ingram going down this week, the Geckos may be even more interested in how Percy Harvin mends from his heel surgery.

    One thing that’s noticeably different about Harvin this year is that he’s weighing more than 200 pounds and looks like an NFL running back. Can he take that kind of pounding, if the Gators choose to hand him the ball even more this season?

    It sounds like we’re going to find out.

    “We have a theory that we’re going to give him the ball as much as we can,” Meyer said. “That’s why we have to have the Chris Raineys and other guys to pick up the load.”

    As great as Harvin is, until he makes it through a season unscathed, durability will remain a question.

    Coach Meyer’s comments abot the SEC pretty much toe the line of the PR folks

    How is this league different than what you thought it was when you viewed it from afar?

    UM: It’s much different. The perception versus reality is different. The perception was that you had some great teams in this league and some great athletes. The reality is that you have more than some. You have nine or 10 programs that think they’re going to go to Atlanta this year. There’s no other conference like that. The perception is that the athleticism across the board in this league is pretty good. It’s not pretty good. It’s unbelievable.

    Asked about his decision to go with the spread option while at Bowling Green.

    You said that you sort of adopted the spread offense when you felt that you didn’t have as much talent (Bowling Green) as the other team. How much better is the spread when you have equal talent or maybe more talent?

    UM: The option is a great equalizer, and it was one of those fork-in-the road decisions in February of 2001. We almost went to the wishbone. With some of the teams we were playing – Marshall, we were scheduled to play South Carolina and didn’t play them and had to play Northwestern – but the only chance we had was to somehow keep the defense off the field and move the ball up and down the field. We certainly weren’t going to do that traditionally. But obviously with better personnel, you can put up even higher numbers. You can create some matchup issues, and personnel does that.”

  401. FloridaTed August 8, 2008 4:13 pm


    Like I’ve said a few times before, I’m not worried about the offense, yet. we all knew that the D would be way ahead. But really, the O is not nearly as bad as they may look right now, instead it’s our D that is truly this outstanding. By middle of next week we should have a clear picture.

    If our O can manage any kind of consistency against our D they will be awesome and can drive against practically any team.

    Looks like my prediction that Alex will start is more and more likely. I love Funaki, but Alex starting would mean an upgrade over Graunke and Funaki and that he’s damned good. In either case, I’m fricking excited.

  402. d1島: August 8, 2008 4:15 pm


    When will defenses catch up with the spread?

    UM: I think they already have. Defenses spend their time now preparing for it. We’ve certainly been stopped. Our first year (at Florida), with the personnel we had, I don’t want to say it was comical, but it was. To believe that we moved the ball, I still wonder how that happened. But teams didn’t know how to defend it. That same offense now … teams understand how to get lined up, how to defend it. We had very good personnel last year. That’s why we moved the ball.

    There are “have’s” and there are…

    When a lot of schools are cutting back with the economy the way it is, how nice is it to be at a school that’s building $28 million privately funded facilities?

    UM: My first year at Bowling Green, we had the biggest turnaround in Division I-A football. The attendance went up. The whole town went nuts, and we had $5,000 taken off our budget because we were a state-run university. We had to adjust training camp because I couldn’t feed the players. I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute. We just had the biggest turnaround.’ So, yes, you get spoiled. Those are real issues at places that you wouldn’t even think were real issues. To have a place like Florida, that tells you the power of Florida. It also tells you about the power of the entire athletic department. The one thing they do is that they don’t just suck off of football. There are some really good programs here.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love every single one of our players, it’s just a feeling I have about Alex. We may be blessed with two diamonds in a row or at least an emerald after the last diamond, lol.,

    Da Geckos had two freshmen starting in the secondary last year. Joe Haden is back this year and says they have a pretty lofty goal this season.

    “It’s a whole new beginning. I just wanted to start off fresh again,” said Haden, a cornerback.

    Haden conceded that he was a “freshman that really didn’t know what was going on” last season. He said he watched the Michigan tape from the Capital One Bowl just once, and that was enough. The Woverines had 524 yards in total offense in a 41-35 win.

    “We’ve come together as a defense,” he said. “We’re much tighter, and we’ve got guys who’ve gone through the growing pains. Our goal is to lead the SEC in interceptions. We know we’re way better than what we showed last year.”

    Amen to that Kazz…gotta Esme and get a clarinet mouthpiece and reeds!

  412. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 4:32 pm

    Obviously I want Inoke to start but I’m happy that we got Greg and Brent this year to help out and add more competition. Can the best QB please stand up, please stand up! I’m more happy though that we got Steele who actually could turn out to really be a steal and Cory for our future.

    INOKE FUNAKI is my #1 QB regardless!!! 🙂

  413. d1島: August 8, 2008 4:32 pm

    Yep. They’re fast.

    There won’t be any shortage of speed on this Florida team. In fact, freshman Jeffrey Demps thinks he could put four guys together and win the 4×400 relay at the NCAA track championships.

    Demps, who ran the 100 meters in 10.01 seconds at the U.S. Olympic Trials, will get a shot at running back, the slot and on returns. Demps might be the fastest on the team, but Chris Rainey, Louis Murphy and Harvin aren’t far behind.

    This summer, Rainey actually beat Demps in a race.

  414. FloridaTed August 8, 2008 4:34 pm

    In regards to Funaki, I’m sure he will get a lot more playing time under Coach Mack, wether he starts or not. They might have plays specifically designed for him.

  415. curveball August 8, 2008 4:35 pm

    I spent some time watching Steele today and was really impressed..he is out there working hard and having fun and the kid has a GUN

  416. d1島: August 8, 2008 4:35 pm

    It all starts in the trenches and Coach Meyer and his OL Coach like what they got.

    Meyer thinks the Gators’ offensive line will be the most underrated part of the team.

    And with senior left tackle Phil Trautwein returning after missing last season with a stress fracture in his right foot, Florida offensive line coach Steve Addazio thinks the Gators will also be as versatile as they’ve been.

    “I think we have the power and the relentlessness to be a grind-it-out, knock-em-back (line),” Addazio said. “But I think we have the athleticism to protect in this conference and also play what is perceived to be more of a finesse style, some option on the perimeter. That’s a combination of athleticism and then power. We have the guys that can do both.”

    Thanks J Dog! Here’s the article:

    NCAA denies Bearcats QB Mauk’s final eligibility appeal

    WEST HARRISON, Ind. — Quarterback Ben Mauk, one of the key components in the Cincinnati Bearcats’ rise to Top 25 prominence last season, had his final appeal for another year of eligibility turned down Friday by the NCAA.

    It was the third time that Mauk’s request for another season has been rejected by the NCAA.

    “I’m disappointed for Ben,” coach Brian Kelly said after the team’s practice Friday. “But he’s a pretty resilient kid. Obviously he’s quite disappointed himself. But he’s got a lot of good options out there.”

    Mauk was an inspiring story last season, when he overcame career-threatening injuries and led Cincinnati to a No. 17 ranking in the final poll. He threw for 31 touchdowns and 3,121 yards even though his right arm and shoulder were still in pain.

    Mauk broke the arm and separated the shoulder in the season opener for Wake Forest in 2006, then transferred to Cincinnati unsure whether he would ever be able to play again. He got stronger as the season went along.

    Afterward, he appealed to the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility because of the injuries, but was turned down. He appealed again on a different basis, pointing out that he redshirted his freshman year at Wake Forest in part because of different injuries. The NCAA again turned him down.

    Finally, Mauk took his appeal to the NCAA’s reinstatement committee, which decided Friday that there wasn’t enough medical documentation to support his claim that he missed his freshman year because of injury.

    Mauk was with the team at its summer camp Friday morning when the university got the decision. He left camp to be with his family. Kelly said that Mauk would like to try to join an NFL team in training camp. If not, he could be a graduate assistant with Cincinnati, where Mauk is working on his master’s degree.

    The ruling means that Cincinnati will head into the season with senior Dustin Grutza as the No. 1 quarterback. Mauk replaced Grutza as the starter last season.

    “I kind of felt bad,” Grutza said. “Ben’s a good friend of mine, and we’ve been through a lot of stuff together.”

    Keep an eye on this blog- he sees the potential in Colt and is going to be following him very seriously! :mrgreen:

  419. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 4:42 pm

    d1 – it’s true what they say that “speed kills”, which is why I truely believe in Coach Mack’s philosophy of having speed on the defense. I believe this years defense will be one of the best we’ve had and definitely Top 25 material. Our front 7 is solid our LB’s are probably the best group in the country, our secondary is fast, smart, and can hit!!! Excited to see it all put together and unleashed this year…

  420. FloridaTed August 8, 2008 4:42 pm

    Another thing I really like about Coach Mack vs JJ is his believe in playing as many guys as possible. That will give us a much deeper pool of quality players and will make future transitions from year to year so much smoother.

    Pauoa Boy,

    Believe me, I wont cry a single tear if Funaki wins the job. I know, with these coaches, whoever starts is truly the best player, so I’m not worried at all.

  421. Kazz August 8, 2008 4:47 pm

    RE: Symonds.

    No worries, da local braddahs will show him around!!!

  423. FloridaTed August 8, 2008 4:57 pm


    Wouldn’t it be something to see Ryan Mouton run dow Chris Rainey in the open field from behind? That would drop the Gators mouth’ open.

    Speed is one thing, the Gators had plenty of speed last year also, but you still need to know what you’re doing. Speed alone doesn’t make you a great football player, great gap control will negate a lot of their speed and we have the horses to do it. The game will totally be decided on the lines.

  424. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 4:59 pm

    Howzit FloridaTed…

    I’m just pulling for Funaki, but like you…whoever wins the job truely deserves to start. To have that many outstanding QB’s in one stable is awesome. I don’t think we’ve had this much potential for a starting QB for awhile as we’ve been spoiled throughout the years with great starting QB’s Colt Brennan, Timmy Chang, Nick Rolovich, Dan Robinson, etc… I’m sure the legacy of great QB’s will continue for years and years, but this year I’d like to see my boy Funaki get the nod 🙂 sorry I’m biased on this choice haha…

  425. Kazz August 8, 2008 5:09 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    It’s all G. We get our favs and whatnot. Funaki = local boy and of course no can help cheer for him.

    The guy is humble (never met him but a lot of people say the same thing), the guy is an athlete, and the guy can do it.

    May the best WARRIOR win!!!!

  426. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 5:11 pm

    I hear you on that one, which is why I mentioned our secondary is fast, smart, and can hit. Our LB’s are the bestest, our front 7 are scary and hungry…I believe Rocky will be rockin and knockin heads this season! With the game experience and talent we have, I think we will have and outstanding year on D barring any injuries *fingers crossed*

    I don’t really give a rat’s arse about the Gators because I feel we are better and our Warriors are amongst the best in the country. That is my mentality and I’m sticking to it! Our Warrior boys need to have that mentality that they can kick anyone’s arse and play with confidence and smarts.

    Speaking of gap control, this is my biggest concern with the special teams play. Too many times I see our boys flying down field trying to unload on people and forgetting angle pursuits and gap containment which is why we tend to give up huge plays every once in awhile. I remember last year when we were beating the crap out of Fresno St. in the first quarter then boom in mere seconds they run one back for a TD! This is one aspect of our Warrior game that I feel sets us back from being WAC Champs every year. Boise St., Fresno St., Nevada, etc…have all had there fair share of huge special teams plays against us. Hopefully, they tighten it up and take pride in special teams as they do on O and D!

  427. FloridaTed August 8, 2008 5:11 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    Nothing wrong with being a little biased in a good way. It’s impossible not to like Funaki, he is such a great young guy, the kind you want your daughter to bring home.

  428. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 5:18 pm

    Sup bruddah Kazz…

    LMAO, I’m sure Symonds will get localized really fast and learn about Local Kine Grindz!

    Yups, Funaki is one awesome bruddah. I’ve met him on several occasions and he’s very aloha spirited and oriented. Very humble and nice guy. I just have a feeling about him that he can do something special on the field. Watching him play at Kahuku and seeing him progress throughout the years has made me eager to see what he can do being a full season starter. But again, may the Best QB please stand up, please stand up…

  429. g-nalo August 8, 2008 5:20 pm

    I know Stretch…you are very good at multi-tasking. I don’t know how you make so many events, CC, KK, Pau Hana, practices…you are da man.

  430. FloridaTed August 8, 2008 5:23 pm

    Pauoa Boy (427),

    Amen !

    I share your concern about Sp.Tm play, but remember, Coach Mack said that will change also, even putting starters and second string in to play. I like the way Coach Mack is so super organized, every single thing he does has a purpose and a goal, not a single step is waisted. That will reflect on the team and they will play the same way. Cold fury is what I want.

    JJ was a lot more loosy goosy and laid back and it showed in many ups and downs. McMackin’s teams, you will notice over the years, will always be steady at the highest effort.

  431. WarriorMojo August 8, 2008 5:23 pm

    ARGHH!!!! Going nuts here! Spent the last two hours looking at airlines and hotels and maps and schedules. I can get to Florida on mileage, but do I wanna through DC first and catch the Redskins’s last pre-season game on 8/28 first? The Nationals are playing the Dodgers and the Orioles are playing the White Sox at that time. Adds a lot more expense and Colt may not even play.

    Practice today was awesome. Will a do a report later, but gotta clear my head first and run some errands.

    For those who have tickets, where is/are the Hawaii section(s)?

    Oh, and how about for oregon state, too? Where are the Hawaii sections?

    Miami Dolphins Sign Chad Pennington

    “The move reunites Pennington with the man who drafted him in New York, Dolphins front office boss Bill Parcells. It also gives Pennington a chance to get revenge on his old team in Week 1, when the Jets play at Miami.

    Will Pennington be the Dolphins’ starter that day? Although he has a lot of work to do to get up to speed, I would bet on it. The Dolphins’ other quarterbacks — Josh McCown, John Beck and rookie Chad Henne — lack Pennington’s precision as a passer. My guess is that Pennington will start and McCown will get cut.”

  438. Kazz August 8, 2008 5:37 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    I know what you mean. When you meet someone in person and they come off well, you feel like they have a better connection with you and you can’t help but root for them.

    I felt the same way when I met Coach Mack in person for a bit at the 2007 Na Koa Banquet and the few times I ran into Colt off the practice field. Both were genuine, real, and humble. Qualities we, as locals, cherish.

    First impressions really do mean a lot.

  441. Kazz August 8, 2008 5:43 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    Hmm… I picked Georgia to be playing for DA BIG ONE in Jan 2009 and even if we are 13-0 with this schedule, there is no way the high maka makas will allow a non-BCS school in “their” National Championship game.

    Few things in this world are “certain”. They consist of: death, taxes, and non-BCS school-biases.

    Shoots, we could play the #1, #2, #3, and #4 pre-season ranked teams and whip them on all their home turfs and STILL be left out of the National Championship game. Sure the ESPN folk will love us and press their lips firmly on our okoles but still no trip to DA BIG ONE.

  442. Pauoa Boy August 8, 2008 5:44 pm

    FloridaTed and Kazz…

    That’s why I love Coach Mack and believe in him! I feel that he truely understands what us fans want and expect and he is ready and willing to deliver for us some great football! I believe with his coaching abilities, recruiting efforts, etc…will consistently be in the Top 25 and show the nation that UH Warriors Ain’t Nuthin to F–k With!!! Oops sorry, getting carried away, but you know what I mean. Dayum I’m ready for the season to start. I think I might have to call in sick and drive to Florida for the game…hmmm…might be worth it lol

    I have never used Zone Alarm until just the last three days, and I am amazed at the number of attempts to gain access to my computer! In three days there has been 954 attempts to gain access to my computer. Do any of you use this program and is that a normal amount of attempts?

    That’s not an unusually high number. Like SteveM says, depending on the available bandwidth in your area it could go up to astronomical numbers. I’ve been using Zone Alarm for several years with avast! anti-virus they work well together and don’t slow my system too badly.

    You may want to go to Gibson Research and take their ShieldsUp! test to see if you’ve got any open ports.

    Excert from an article in August 2008 issue of “Generations Hawaii”.

    Coach Mack was born in Springfield, OR, a small mill town east of Eugene. As a boy, he dabbled in basketball, baseball, and track, but it was football that really caught his attention as a student at Hamlin Junior High. “I just liked the physical part of it,” he says smiling. “I really liked to hit.”
    Small wonder. His father, Frank, was a professional boxer who was introduced to the sport by former heavyweight champ Max Baer.
    “He never bragged about his fight career,” recalls Mack. “I wanted him to talk about his fights, and he’d point to the cuts on his eyes and say,”Look at my eyes. I wasn’t very good.” He earned a Silver Star in World War II, and I didn’t even know about that until he passed away. He didn’t talk about those things. He was a really humble man. That’s why being humble is one of the things I really believe in;it’s something I got from my father.”

    Another excerpt:

    Greg McMakin took a deep breath and pondered what he was about to do. The high school senior stood alone in the physician’s office, where,as expected, his doctor once again refused to sign a note that would allow him to resume playing the game he loved.

    His mind raced back to the stern evaluation given to him three years earlier, when he tore his ACL whiile running back a punt as a freshman. “You’ll never play football again,” the doctor said after the surgery. “And really, it doesn’t matter,because football would never mean anything to you in the future, anyway.”

    His days as a football player seemingly behind him, the next two years young Mack tried to focus on less physical sports such as basketball and track. But now, in his final year at Springfield High, football was still in his blood. HIs love for the game never went away.

    “The coaches knew I couldn’t play because my doctor wouldn’t let me,” recalls Mack. “All they needed was a doctor’s note, and so I went in to beg him to give it to me. I wanted to play so bad. But he was a stubborn old army doctor.”

    He pauses for a moment, then shakes his head.
    “I know it wasn’t the most honest thing to do, but…”
    Alone in the room, young Mack grabbed one of his doctor’s prescription pads and forged the note he needed.
    Doctor’s orders be damned. Greg McMackin was gong to play football.

  504. whitey August 8, 2008 9:50 pm

    good thing i just lurking. stretch, i resemble that remark. i was just thinking the same thing.

  505. Long Time UH Fan August 8, 2008 9:51 pm

    Last one for tonight:

    Mack played well enough in his senior season to earn a partial scholarship to Southern Oregon. He majored in physical education and was not thinking about coaching. He was a C- student in high school but something “clicked” when he went to college. He treated it like a job. He did not party or go out on weekends. He finished with a 3.4 GPA.

    Mack fared even better at the U of Arizona where he posted a 4.0 GPA to earn a Master’s degree in Education. As a grad assistant he also helped coach the football team’s running backs.

    “I started thinking, ‘Now this coaching thing is sort of neat,’ ” he recalls.

    He returned to Oregon as an assistant coach for the Aloha High School Warriors in Beaverton. After a couple of years he became the head coach.
    Mack knew right away that he would be a better coach than he was a player.

    And thus a coach was born.

    Any chance you can give us a quick overall assessment of the team sofar? That would be nice just before finally going moe.

    Watching the olympics intermittently on Channel 1263. So I have seen women fencing, women badminton, equestrian (why is that a sport? the horse does the work), and boxing. Fun times!

    ST you would have a lot more hits if this site refreshed quicker. one reason Whitey heading to bed rather than chat on line.

    Jes imagine how slammed this site goin be wen da season starts. Hope we can get on! 😆

  512. SteveM August 8, 2008 10:49 pm

    Yesterday I mentioned that The Warrior Beat had over 1,000 comments last September on Da Punchbowl Kid’s bio day. I recall us hitting 1,000+ a couple more time after that and plenty of 800+, but I don’t recall passing 700 under the current blogware…or bogware/bloatware.

    I don’t have a record of this so I’m not 100% sure, but I think even hitting 600 today would be in the top 3, if not the highest.

    Many of the computer literate Tsaikos have posted about the problems with this site. With all the myriad other things going on, have you considered what you are going to do when the inevitable happens?… football season will start and people will want to post, but they won’t be able to. The increase will be geometric because more posts will mean many more people hitting the refresh button at the same time. Heck, it happens now…what will happen in 3 weeks?

    I hope the Good Lord opens some doors for us real soon.

    Doing an esme….tappity tap…Zzzzzzzz

  525. SteveM August 8, 2008 11:13 pm

    Some average math. Post #513 is comment 60,016 under this bogware (that was the 60,000 plateau Jason was noting in post #503).

    This bogware started on March 27, so through today, that is 135 days.

    60,016 divided by 135 = 445 comments per day (average)

    Since I remember a lot of sub-300 days, we must have hit 600 a few times to make that average. But I still think 700 is rare.

  526. Long Time UH Fan August 8, 2008 11:17 pm

    Hi Al,

    I found the article on Coach Mack very interesting. There’s a bit more about his coaching experience and his wife Heahter. I think most people know his previous coaching background; maybe post another excerpt on how he met his wife tomorrow night…

I’ve calmed down (just a tiny bit), at least long enough to carefully consider my options. Of course, to my imagination they all end up with people crying. (Careful, Mojo, I may take you up on that offer.) Now just trying to figure out how to cover that water polo tournament on Sunday now that my mode of transportation has been ruled ineligible by the single-cell organisms upstairs.

  585. bighilofan2 August 9, 2008 2:30 am

    For all of us who participate in junior athletics, the idea that the BOE (big on execuses) would consider paring JV sports was “too much.” For Greg McMackin to take time out of his busy schedule and #1 job, getting Warriors reading for Florida, to speak at a BOE meeting against that idea, was a benefit for all Hawaii youth. This man has so much foresight…. Unbelievable!

    Okay players, its time to match coach’s mental genius

    Go Warriors!!!
