Expansion plans

UH’s fall semester began yesterday, meaning roster limits were lifted. The Rainbow Warriors are now trying to finalize how to fill out the roster.

The goal is to have an active roster of 110 players.

There were 99 players participating in training camp. Receivers Billy Ray Stutzmann and Cecil Doe and tight end Josh Long were activated. Transfers Quinton Pedroza (Utah) and Jeremy Castro (UCLA) are redshirts, but they’re practicing and count toward the 110.

Ray Mulitalo a fullback from Utah, is among the candidates for one of the six remaining roster spots. Mulitalo, who went on a two-year church mission to Houston, last played at Snow College. He has three seasons of eligibility.

* * * * *

UH will not be staging a weekly news conference with Norm Chow this season. The decision was based largely on a decision to hold athletic department employees to a 40-hour work week.

Some key personnel — such as trainers and equipment managers — worked as many 800 overtime hours last year while being compensated for only a fraction of the time. Many of the athletic department employees, including administrative assistants and custodians, volunteer to staff football games as security.

While employees are willing to provide a reasonable amount of unpaid overtime, there is a stalemate in discussions about increasing the compensation for the extra work. For now, the mandate is to not exceed the 40-hour work week. With UH football at least a six-days-a-week deal, the pick-your-poison expendable day was Monday. The collateral damage is weekly news conferences.

Of course, a condition of having the athletic department’s accumulated deficit transferred to the chancellor’s office was the mandate for fiscal constraints. Unfortunately, the line drawn was the bottom line.

    Polymom is stable and with ALL of you good folks get well wishes and prayers she has made it through the critical stage of her virus. If all goes well today with the Doctor’s approval she could be release today or sometime before Friday. Husband Pepe has been with her through out this ordeal and all I can say he is OUTSTANDING of being her better half as he has stepped up PRIME TIME taking care of his wife as a “REAL HUSBAND” suppose to do !

    Once release from Queens she will be staying at Dr Don Weir home gaining her strength to travel back to Los Angeles. I and my better half are available here to pick the family up and drive them IF need be to their residence in Manhattan Beach.

    MAHALO, TSAIKO NATION for all of your prayers and get well wishes for our polymom. It is through this GREAT spirit we have for each other outside of sport that we show the HUMAN side of compassion as we continue to share and care for each other as the ALOHA SPIRIT only you have as it is worth more then gold, emeralds or jewels as it is just plain and simple PRICELESS !

    Mr. Tsai,

    While I’m a big fan of UH football I’m, also, a big fan of the NFL. I have access to all the NFL games on Sunday and would like to follow the players with local ties. It’s hard for me to keep up with the active local players teams and their status. I would really appreciate a web page that would list the local players, their team with their jersey number so that each Sunday I would know which teams and players to look for. Could that be done? Or, is there something out their that I’m not aware of? Thanks!

    If the UHAD staff/employees are doing so much OT without pay, what is the “beef” on limiting the work week to 40 hours by UHAD?

    Using volunteers was addressed in our meeting with Ben Jay and he was adamant about NOT using “volunteers” at/in the lower campus. I believe A-Joe raised this point. Yet, he boasted about how well Ohio State faired using volunteers. Did I miss something at the meeting or not hear his comment correctly?

    After Hurricane Dot, I saw the sunrise and set for 21 consecutive days repairing houses. I don’t recall being paid OT; just regular pay. And, I appreciate what the employees/staff are doing for the athletic department. That IMHO, is DEDICATION TO THE MAX!!!!!!!

  57. once a fool... August 27, 2013 8:42 am

    always a fool.

    Sorry, ST. This guy doesn’t play nice so why should the rest of us? His name is arrogant. His posts are arrogant. Arrogance while living in his own world of ignorance.

    “in depends making a stinker”…you are a piece of work. You are extremely negative. You think you’re the smartest one in the room. You are not a UH fan. You are a cancer. How do you help the team with your negativity? You focus on small things, make up your own “truth”, and act as if you’re the only one seeing things clearly and unbiased. Well, you are the MOST biased one on this blog and you constantly fail to see the big picture. A football team has hundreds of moving parts. Has groups of parts. Has groups that have to work in harmony together. Lot’s of good stuff going on. Read the paper. Unreal how you don’t even acknowledge anything good about the team. You have your rules of how things should be and that’s all that matters to you.

    You don’t try to live in harmony with people on this blog. This is a FAN site. If you hate the team or the coach or players, take it elsewhere. Your one opinion doesn’t override the approval of thousands of fans. You take yourself too seriously. You don’t really count. And if that means you aren’t a fan anymore. So be it. Your vileness would definitely not be missed. And take the other haters with you.

    MANY FANS ON HERE ARE SICK OF YOUR ARROGANCE AND NEGATIVITY. The sooner you go away, the better. You don’t help the team with your negativity. So, you like to think? (more like stink!) Think about this. Your negativity could spread. Could spell the eventual closure of the football program at Hawaii. BCS does want to leave the NCAA. No fan support means we won’t be invited to a super conference. Hawaii could be left out. No players. No fans. No fans, no corporate sponsorship. No sponsorship, no money. Program folds. Blog closed. No team for you to be negative about. Would put you out of a “job.” But, ST might be out of a job too. Ever think about that? You’re constantly crapping in ST’s house. Eventually, there might not be a house to crap in because people like you are too arrogant to try to help the team in any way you can even if you don’t agree with everything that goes on.

    Keep posting your ignorant comments. You’re not the smartest one in the room.

    Get a life or a clue, in depends making a stinker. Better yet, go away!

    Know the Kafentzis clan well, very good people all around and probably the deepest set of familial athletes in the history of UH sport. From where I stood, Mark was probably the toughest, with Kurt being the most natural and fluid athlete of the clan…people may not recall, that prior to him getting injured about 2/3s the way into either the 85 or 86 season, he was leading the nation in interceptions–was one of the top javelin throwers in the nation coming out of HS and played WR for the bows as well.

    Speaking of old school remedies, remember that red stuff that used to come in the bottle with the glass swab, “Mecuricrome” or something like that. When grandma used to put that on cuts that sucker really stung.

    Some people here are way too “sensitive” and “emotional”, like in the way when a little girl gets mad at the other little girls on the playground for not including her in their game. The excluded little girl typically then throws what we call a hissy fit. Examples of this behavior abound, and post 59 is a good example. Characteristics of this behavior include directing anger at the wrong person for the wrong reason, instead of the hissy fit little girl doing something to help and/or to improve herself, which is the real cause for her unhappiness and her sad condition.

    This is a blog about UH football last time I checked, not a blog about throwing hissy fits. Let’s stick to the topic of UH football and all that naturally flows from that kind of discussion.

    We don’t all have to agree. It is healthy and good to know that we all do not agree. Nothing wrong with that.

    Go UH!!!

  93. Independent Loser August 27, 2013 11:44 am

    Independent Thinker…Your name says it all. It’s nothing special if the way you think is different. It just means that nobody gives a rip about what you say. So, instead you post here for us to have to scroll over. Also, just because its in your head it doesn’t make it a viable thought. Again….It’s in your head. You are a waste of life…I have read many of your posts. You are just a hater. Probably hate your life. Make no money and never played a down of any sports ever besides kick ball at your short bus school. Jeff

  94. Independent Thinker August 27, 2013 11:48 am

    You are a genius, jeff. It it were not a waste of such a talented solider, I would recommend you for ocs. now, reassemble your weapon and continue.

    This is really entertaining. And yes, Independent Thinker usually tends to sound like a douchebag, but still. Best blog discussion ever.

    You are more correct than you know. Living down here in SEC-land, I can tell you that ALABAMA fans would hunt you down and kill you, your family, other next-of-kin, and your dog for hatin on your own team. Where were all these brave haters when Bob Wagner got the boot? The only person with an opinion was Riley, and he was the basketball coach. This is the reason that I thought Coach Chow would never take the job. Now that he has put his personal reputation on the line, least we could do is not make it the “firing line.” There is no bigger D1 coaching prospect that wants this job; because to want this job is to love the Hawaii student-athletes and fans. The athletes are usually easy to love, but the fans??? Well heck you just have to get used to us like JJ and other successful UH coaches.

  97. Independent Thinker August 27, 2013 11:51 am

    ok. enough fun for one day. back to the billables.

  98. Noio August 27, 2013 11:54 am

  100. boolakanaka August 27, 2013 11:59 am

    Kawika49—unsure, of the reference…please enlighten.

  101. jeezy33 August 27, 2013 12:06 pm

    Is Hawaii planning on running multiple defensive looks or mainly 4-3? I thought we were going to run some 3-4 and 3-3-5 sets… So was just curious..

  102. A-House August 27, 2013 12:07 pm

    “yaito” and “mercuricrome” – yikes, those were the infamous remedies back in my youngin days

    my grandma used to punish me – ” come hea U warubozo” – curl your finga – at the 1st joint from the knuckle of the index finger went the “moss”, then came the fire, and then the ouchi, ouchi

    my 2nd grade teacher used wooden rulers on my knuckles and fingers – first with the flat side – look at me and I jus stare back at her with real hate in the eyes – then the “sharp side” with the tin metal and WHAM, WHAM, WHAM – just stare at her with no emotion – she finally gave up – so, when she “make” I clapped at the assembly – principal was not happy – oh well, life goes on.

  103. boolakanaka August 27, 2013 12:07 pm

    Unless you going to provide me with some very sought after lessons on stone carving…now you got me curious???

  104. A-House August 27, 2013 12:11 pm

    daily reminder to those who viewing this blog for the first time

    no forget to bring the “coupon” that’s with your season tickets to the tailgate or mail to me at 1164 Bishop St 400, Hon, HI 96813 – will collect and give to Coach Beeman, UH Wahine BB coach.

    no shame, ask your co-workers, friends, neighbors, enaybody – let’s put’um to good use!!!

  105. A-House August 27, 2013 12:18 pm

    Someday, all the top 15 local football players will commit to and sign a UH LOI

    this will be the day you know that UH has “arrived on the scene” and impressed all the mainland coaches

    did not USC sign the top recruits in several major categories last year or 2 years ago- ie, OL, DL, LB, WR, DB, RB, etc. did I read right in the paper?

    who the coach doesn’t matter – it’s the NAME – yet, Alabama and the SEC keeps winning the national championship

  106. Rodney August 27, 2013 12:28 pm


    Can’t say for sure,looks like a chop suey too me.

    3-3-5,3-4,4-3 8 in box Wish I new? Was watching

    offense and we look real good,not many drop passes

    Recievers look really fast!!!!

    Imua warriors!!!

  107. kawika49 August 27, 2013 12:31 pm

    No Bula that was her Cousin did the carving

  108. 3-Prong August 27, 2013 12:43 pm

    23 Kawika: Ahhh, one of Father Halter’s favorite lines was “Sabby Boo??” (A take off of savez vous, I always assumed) when questioning if you understood what he was trying to get across. He was a good man.

  109. jeezy33 August 27, 2013 12:48 pm

    116.. Thats too many… need to save some for mainland

  110. A-House August 27, 2013 12:48 pm


    when I see “Sabby Boo” – immediately think he was saying “do you understand?”

  111. kawika49 August 27, 2013 12:50 pm

    He will always be missed. Even though I couldn’t understand his English.

  112. kawika49 August 27, 2013 12:52 pm

    Other than that was coach Yamada; and did you do your homework.

  113. kawika49 August 27, 2013 12:56 pm

    And the Marine chaplain that used to show us war films..That’s why I went Army Airborne.

  114. boolakanaka August 27, 2013 1:09 pm

    Still lost..Kawika…hmmn, clues, St. Louis or ancient stone carving….perhaps, there is halau involved…?

  115. Manu August 27, 2013 1:11 pm

    I’m a habitual “lurker” I love reading most of the comments posted here. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to Poly Mom. Go Warriors!!!

  116. kawika49 August 27, 2013 1:14 pm

    It is all good; you will know it when you see it. I am so proud of you. Keep it up.

  117. kawika49 August 27, 2013 1:15 pm


  118. slenzi August 27, 2013 1:25 pm

    “Mercuricrome” was the good stuff, easy on the pain. Now “tincture of methiolate” that was the hard core “flame orange” stuff that the coaches kept in their medical boxes – wow that sucka sting a box jelly.

  119. boolakanaka August 27, 2013 1:25 pm

    Wow..you and moms–that makes elua….mahalo nui.

    Go Rainbow Warriors!

  123. madeinhawaii August 27, 2013 1:45 pm

    Mercurochrome.. HAH! .. real men suck it up with IODINE!… dang! that hurt!

  124. Stephen Tsai August 27, 2013 2:31 pm

    I do not think the lockers are completed or else UH woulda had a nice back-patting ceremony.

  125. Stephen Tsai August 27, 2013 2:32 pm

    UH will be using a variety of defensive schemes. Every team does.

  126. PurpleMaple August 27, 2013 2:36 pm

    Just an update on shuttle service from Leeward CC for the USC game. Shuttle service will commence at 2:30 pm. For all (home) games, shuttle service will commence two and-a-half hours before the start of the game.

  127. Shoko August 27, 2013 2:38 pm

    Guess no news is bad news regarding the locker rooms.

  128. Hank August 27, 2013 3:47 pm

    We could sure use Joey Iosefa. Go Warriors!

  129. wafan August 27, 2013 3:49 pm

    Locker room will be ready soon. Or maybe not. Most likely in a year or two after huge cost over runs.

    The guys must be used to the garden hoses by now?

    Dang. What is so difficult about fulfilling a contract on time and on budget in Hawai’i?!?!

  130. Buffoman August 27, 2013 4:14 pm

    #124 Hey, I was just a young whipper snapper back then. Pain was pain; everything sore. Try jumping in the “furo” right after grandpa had it as hot as he wanted. That was really hot, could cook crab easy. But had to jump in.

    Loved it back in da day. Life seemed much simpler, no TV, hard for catch radio, could count cars on the road, ran in back of the “smoke truck”, had lunch on tin trays when Spanish rice was the best, had oil mopped wooden floors and tidal wave warnings were the community event, next to the politicians who used to come and try get vote at the courthouse in the community (the giy with the most leis usually won).

  131. d1shima August 27, 2013 4:38 pm

    48 hours…

  132. Stephen Tsai August 27, 2013 4:39 pm

    It was a very awkward scene when the cross country team, which was practicing on the grass field, was ousted by the football team.

  133. Stephen Tsai August 27, 2013 4:41 pm


    OK, now Buffoman is going way back.

    You gotta remember that some of these players are too young to remember 9/11.

  134. madeinhawaii August 27, 2013 5:07 pm

    Good find Haka…

    Helmet #14… Ha’a or Haka #16…. We got our head and smooth moves in there.. now just gotta get the rest of the team there, too!

  135. tommui August 27, 2013 5:23 pm

    #130 – well, giving it to contractors that are bonded, the contract calls for bonus’ if done before time; penalty clauses if it does not; get the drawings and specs done properly before the contract is let;stop making all kinds of change orders; and get contractors that are competent and not contractors that only give $$$$ to the campaign funds.

    Nor to contractors that are friendly to the UH Administrators.

    I’m not sure how I would feel if those guys contribute a minimum of 2-3 mil every year to the UHF earmarked for athletics!!!!

  136. Buffoman August 27, 2013 5:31 pm

    ST, I always made references to my being an ancient one. Heck, I believe there are a number of us here who could teach an oral history of life in The Islands. Yes, old bugga and Warrior fan.

  137. Warrior Dave August 27, 2013 5:54 pm

    You can tell its almost kick off. The testosterone is rampant!!!

  138. Former UH Athlete August 27, 2013 6:51 pm

    Not sure if anyone mentioned yet, but USC star RB Silas Redd will not play vs Hawaii. He is still recovering from knee issues.

    Also, USC reportedly is very thin on the offensive line. They’ve had to have guys shuffle to new positions and they could possibly have a walk-on starting at right guard.

    They more I review USC’s current status, there are enough loose ends to give UH a shot.

    The keys to Thursday’s game:

    1. Can the UH OLine block USC’s DLine? — USC’s front 7 is the most solid group they have. They don’t have much depth, but the starting talent level is really high. UH must hold its own in the trenches for any shot at winning.

    2. UH’s inexperience could be a positive — Graham, Wily, Lakalaka, and the new WRs have zero D1 experience, but that doesn’t mean they can’t perform well. They just need to avoid the jitters in the first game of the year and D1 careers. Also, USC has only high school film to scout these guys so I’m pretty sure they don’t have good scouting.

    3. Force USC QBs into mistakes. I strongly feel the USC QBs are shaky under pressure (see Wittek after Barkley went down) and will make a few bad throws/decisions, UH just needs to capitalize on the chances I’m certain they will get.

  139. Ipu Man August 27, 2013 7:03 pm

    Our Defense is sure to give USC some whacks to feel real pain…

  140. Ipu Man August 27, 2013 7:04 pm

    And, I guess, the UH giant logo flag is our mascot, no?

  141. Ipu Man August 27, 2013 7:09 pm

    It would be nice if UH engineer or science department/students could do a

    rainbow hologram with lightning and thunder sound effects…

  142. Da Greenmask August 27, 2013 7:15 pm

    Independent Thinker, are you going to the game? If so, where are you sitting? I’d like to meet you!

  143. Tofuzuke August 27, 2013 7:29 pm

    I agree w/Former UH Athlete, and may I add….

    The SC team is all buss up, they haven’t been hitting in practice due to injuries. Time to rattle them bones, hit them hard, “Just Scrap!” for every yd., ft., in., and let them know this is our hale, our aina. I don’t like injuries but I can’t wait to see the boys get some good legal cracks. We are not a preseason game, u in a war, with Warriors!

    4. Play smart and don’t get any personal fouls, nothing for free, play hard, fair, and as a team.

    UH 27, SC 24

    94..no breaks given. I got 6 season tickets. I send employees to the games. I donate 5 figures to Hawaii Football out of my mortgage company profits. We should all be getting behind the team or just stay behind and let the real fans read some real productive information.

    whoa brah. you get one job opening or what?
