Fame game

The Hawaii football program might not have fortune, but it will have Fame.

Initial plans call for a Hawaii section to be included in the new College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. The museum will open in 2014.

UH coach Norm Chow and the Warriors will be featured in a New York Times article.

ucd12-300x291Allen Sampson

It is unlikely that receiver Allen Sampson, running back Samson Anguay and fullback Dustin Elisara will be medically cleared to compete for the start of spring training in late March.

All are recovering from knee surgeries.

Former UH graduate assistant Mike Smith is expected to join his alma mater, Texas Tech, as a co-defensive coordinator. Smith currently coaches the outside linebackers for the New York Jets.

    Moving the Hall of Fame to Atlanta makes more sense.

    It seems that most Hall of Fame sites are in hard-to-reach places. Cooperstown? That’s so isolated it should have been a WAC campus.

  9. kkobi425 December 23, 2012 7:50 am

    Good morning Wafan. Nice day in the PNW.

  10. Stephen Tsai December 23, 2012 7:50 am


    I think they’ll heal completely, but not soon.

  15. PurpleMaple December 23, 2012 8:22 am

    Doesn’t look like Allen Sampson has gained any weight. Is that his version of the shaka sign? Is Dustin’s weight still around 270? A real bruising fullback in short-yardage situations would be nice to have. Plus good for pass-blocking.

  16. el burro sabio December 23, 2012 8:34 am

    Will Moses Samia be cleared for spring ball?

  17. kkobi425 December 23, 2012 8:35 am

    Sampson needs to not rush back. I would like him to be completely healthy so he can have the season he deserves.

    Hope the injured Warriors heal before heading back to practice. Would love to see the speed Allan S. can bring to the field.

    Watching Sen. Inouye’s memorial service on KITV. RIP Senator.

    Hey there, You’ve performed an incredible job. I will certainly digg it and for my part suggest to my friends. I’m sure they will be benefited from this web site.

  25. A-House December 23, 2012 10:22 am

    Although Cooperstown may be difficult to reach, there is much history and sentiment for that location.

    we enjoye our trip in August of 1994 – unfortunately for us an unexpected cold front dropped in from Canada and NY experienced a new record low of 40 degrees in August.

  26. Chicken Grease December 23, 2012 10:23 am

    kev-1, kkobi425 again . . . good morning.

    Yeah, also watching the Punchbowl funeral for U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, too. Great ceremony. Everything aligned and such . . . a Hawaii-born president at this time, too. What else can you say.

    2 NBA greats who are in the hall of fame had very unique free throw shooting styles – one a guard for Philadelphia and a forward for the Lakers – what made them so unique?

  29. d1shima December 23, 2012 10:25 am

    Third week in a row that a team lays a 50-bomb on someone. Is 50 the new 35 in the NFL?

  33. A-House December 23, 2012 10:27 am

    go Niners! go Niners! beat the crap out of Seattle and settle the NFC West today!!!!!!!

    hopefully, the Falcons hit a bad day in the playoffs and are eliminated.

    #31 – you can say that many times cause I use it all the time when I rise from a sitting position – some say it comes with age, I just feel comfortable using that word – takes me back to my up bringing and listening to my grand parents.

  35. d1shima December 23, 2012 10:32 am

    …and it also fits the free throw style of those two.

  38. Derek December 23, 2012 11:57 am

    Sampson, Anguay, and Elisara all bring something to the table. Sampson, slot receiving, and kick returning. Anguay, KO and punt returns, reverses. Elisara, fullback blocking in short yardage situations. Gotta stay on the field so get well.

    A-House, didn’t one take jumpers and the other shoot his free throws 2-handed underhand? Can’t remember the names. The jumper played for Philly I believe.

    Giants ain’t gonna make the playoffs if they play like this. Bobby Curran will be very sad. Yeah! I knew they weren’t going to make it. It’s just so hard to repeat. Cowboys’ chances are slim at best. If the Giants lose to the Ravens, I think the Redskins win the NFL East even if they lose to the Cowboys next week because of the tiebreakers. But I could be wrong.

    The AFC playoff teams are all determined.

  44. Derek December 23, 2012 1:38 pm

    Mistake. Cowboys will be in the playoffs, if the beat the Redskins. Both teams also can make it via the wildcard along with Seattle and Minnesota. Two of them will make it. Cowboys or Washington will win the NFL east.

  45. Derek December 23, 2012 1:42 pm

  48. Chicken Grease December 23, 2012 2:24 pm

    Sigh. Just gets, well, less 12-21-2012 for the 12-21-2012ers. From (eek, talk about add insult to injury!) France 24:

    Mayan temple damaged in tourist ‘apocalypse’ frenzy

    Tourists flocking to Guatemala for “end of the world” parties have damaged an ancient stone temple at Tikal, the largest archeological site and urban center of the Mayan civilization.

    “Sadly, many tourists climbed Temple II and caused damage,” said Osvaldo Gomez, a technical adviser at the site, which is located some 550 kilometers (340 miles) north of Guatemala City.

    “We are fine with the celebration, but (the tourists) should be more aware because this is a (UNESCO) World Heritage Site,” he told local media.

    Gomez did not specify what was done, although he did say it was forbidden to climb the stairs at the site and indicated that the damage was irreparable.

    Temple II, which is about 38 meters (125 feet) high and faces the central Tikal plaza, is one of the site’s best known structures.

    Friday marked the end of an era that lasted 5,200 years, according to the Mayan “Long Count” calendar. Some believed the date also marked the end of the world as foretold by Mayan hieroglyphs.

    More than 7,000 people visited Tikal on Friday to see native Mayan priests hold a colorful ceremony and light fires as the sun emerged to mark the new era.

    Critics complained that the event was really for tourists and had little to do with the Mayans. About 42 percent of Guatemala’s 14.3 million residents are native Mayans, and most live in poverty and endure discrimination.

    The ancient Mayans reached their peak of power in Central America between the years 250 and 900 AD.

    UNESCO declared Tikal a World Heritage Site in 1979.

    So, since PC has launched its very real death with a bang (oh. What an unsavory pun for the 12-21-2012ers.) with their little apocalyblunder, the rest of us will say (with more validity than ever; as if it was ever in trouble) Merrrrrrrrrrrrrry CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!.

    Cooperstown has the Baseball Hall of Fame. The College Football Hall of Fame is going to be in Atlanta

    Good day everyone!

    RE: #8

    ST — good point. I was wondering why Atlanta.

    BTW, there is a modest Tsai-ko Hall of Fame for great unselfish actions of significant consequence in the formation of the Tsai-kos. Check the Photos section of my site.
