Shutter pleads not guilty

UH quarterback Cayman Shutter today entered a not-guilty plea on a drunken driving charge.

His trial is scheduled for July 20 in District Court.

Shutter did not attend the arraignment. Attorney Dean Hoe filed the plea.

Shutter is on indefinite suspension from team activities for violating team rules. He remains as a full-time student on scholarship.

The Warriors will put in the final installments of their new offense and defense during today’s practice, the 14th of spring training.

With the Warrior Bowl tomorrow, the Warriors will use the last of their required three no-pad practices today.

    Morin’g to one and all

    I’m glad to see Chris Gant doing so well in this offense.

    He has great speed and size to match. He’s been on my watch list since he came in last fall.

    On defense I see that there are lot of movement in DB position and that is great for coverage and challenges coming ahead to August Camp. But what ever happen to Darryl McBride he was doing so well last year.

    Anywhere but BYU, Hawaii tells missionary/football player who wants to transfer to BYU

    “Last summer, having been on his mission for about a year, Michael Wadsworth started thinking about his future and sent a letter to McMackin, who was still Hawaii’s head coach at the time, asking for permission to talk to other schools because of that desire to play college football closer to his home in Orem. McMackin quickly grabbed the telephone, according to John Wadsworth, and tracked down the missionary in England.

    McMackin asked Wadsworth to reconsider, and told the missionary that if he would return and play just one more year at Hawaii the school would release him to any other school in the country if he didn’t like it. During that call, John Wadsworth believes, his son mentioned to McMackin that he really wanted to play at BYU.

    John Wadsworth is adamant that BYU coaches never contacted Michael on his mission, and still haven’t. In fact, John says he is not even sure BYU coaches know about the situation, “unless they have read about it in the paper. We haven’t talked to anyone at BYU about this, and they haven’t called us, either.”

    The family doesn’t even know if BYU coaches will let Michael walk on, let alone give him a scholarship. John Wadsworth said a report that BYU petitioned Hawaii for Michael’s release are totally inaccurate. The father said every appeal for the release has come from either him or his son.

    A few weeks after that phone call between McMackin and Michael Wadsworth, the family was informed that Hawaii would release the player to any school in the country upon the completion of his mission this June except one: BYU.

    In December, McMackin was fired and replaced by Chow, the former BYU offensive coordinator who was at rival Utah last year. Norm will understand, the family believed, and so they appealed the school’s decision singling out BYU.

    John Wadsworth says that not only was Chow not amenable to the release, he was even more adamant than McMackin was that Michael not be released to BYU.

    “Coach McMackin was really cordial about it, willing to talk about it. He was really a people person. But coach Chow was very adamant that he wasn’t to go to BYU without [having to wait it out],” John Wadsworth said. “We sent in the appeal a few weeks ago, and they denied the appeal, and that’s basically what happened.”

He carefully watched what he ate and exercised every day of his adult life. However mother nature still caught up with him.

    Re: Wadsworth

    He’s not prohibited from transferring to BYU.

    He just can’t receive a scholarship from BYU for a year without a release.

    He still would have to sit out a year, anyway, as a transfer.

    But UH is willing to release him to any other school, including Utah and Utah State.

  46. Stephen Tsai April 26, 2012 9:56 am

    His case is different from other transfers.

    UH was required to hold a scholarship for him during his mission. I suppose it’s like how somebody’s job must be held if he goes on a sabbatical or a military assignment.

    And, yes, it is true that BYU did not recruit him during the mission because no school is allowed to recruit him. That’s called the Riley Nelson rule, and it was implemented because of Nelson’s transfer from Utah State to BYU following his mission.

    Bottom-line on Wadsworth is he CAN attend BYU…No one said he can’t…However, if he wants to attend BYU, its on his “own dime” for the first year. If BYU wants to extend him a scholarship after a year, then sobeit…

    UH has NO obligation to release Wadsworth from his scholarship obligation, as he did benefit from one year’s tuition as a redshirt freshman. Meanwhile, he went on a mission with the understanding that he would come back to Manoa upon completion. We “held” his scholarship and likely, prevented others from getting a scholarship with the understanding that Wadsworth would return. Since Wadsworth did not return, his argument is very weak that UH is preventing him from attending BYU or that we should release him to receive any scholarship…

    What’s funny about the whole Wadsworth thing is that his dad claims they haven’t contacted BYU, if that’s the case what’s the big deal because that would mean they planned on paying tuition anyway… Respectively coach Mac and Coach Chow have enabled him to transfer anywhere except for that one school…all this means is he can go on schoollie anywhere but BYU immediately…if there was no contact or schollie offered by BYU why are the Wadsworth’s so Habut?

    I’m not screaming that the sky is falling, but it just doesn’t seem right.

    Tomorrow will be vely, vely busy day for the Rainbows and Warriors. Wish all of them well.

    jt turner apparently has successfully completed his aa.

    …and yes, like tsai said, a word of caution…lets wait until he has been accepted/admitted and is here this summer on the bridge program.

  118. al April 26, 2012 9:02 pm

    ahouse…your memory is worsening by the day. he was all the stir a year ago when he chose hawaii over many. in fact, he and his friend mike edwards was the big stuff then.

    however, he was unable to gain entrance to manoa then.

    a big time basketball recruit lands tomw. he is not just tripping us either as we are in his top three. he is aware of another chicagoan who just signed with us. he and spearman could be the coup de gras of the spring signing period.

  120. al April 26, 2012 9:05 pm

    with shaq also taking the high road you know gibber will be after a pg who can contribute right away. he says he does have a few tricks up his sleeve.

    softball voting —

    Cal girl at #2 with 19.1% – her fans know how to “JUICE” the ballots.

    As someone posted, she was at 13% two weeks ago.

    ‘Bama girl at #3 with 17.7%.

    wandering warior waylon lolotai. a former all state tight end/linebacker in arizona comes to hawaii who had no tight end back then goes from de-ol-lb-dl-te-and now to fullback.

    that’s what happens to an athletically gifted guy who size wise is a ‘tweener.

    he is a victim of his own talents. now, moving to full back could just be where he could make some coin at the next level. regan mauia for example.

  123. al April 26, 2012 9:19 pm

    you know joey iosefa could make things happen as the wildcat.

  124. al April 26, 2012 9:25 pm

    it is interesting to see how new pairs of eyes have seen things from a different perspective.

    dunnachie for example could find himself being courted by many pro teams after this year because he’ll break all of the records with his punt average.

    chris gant will finally get a breakthrough and will show all why he was the top jc receiver two years ago.

    the cornerbacks for hawaii will now either have a make or break career. and for those who make this man coverage look like child’s play will find the path to the nfl much quicker especially with experiences that our new staff has.

    list is long.

    Re: 120. al, your sources are usually solid, but it was reported that no recruits would be visiting this week. Maybe it’s a timing issue, and the “big-time” recruit is available this week. Yes, if Gib can pry him away from the SEC and MWC schools that are after him, that would go a long way toward soothing the losses of the departed four. We’ll see.

  126. al April 26, 2012 9:50 pm

    guy…birdies think he arrives tomw.

  127. Guy in the office April 26, 2012 9:54 pm

    Birdies know best. Thanks. Time to turn the blog over to football before Stephen bans me.

    Gib Arnold said something about 40 percent of freshmen eventually transfer.

    That number seems really, really inflated.

    Then again, a UH person told me today that 100 percent of his freshman recruits have left.

  129. Stephen Tsai April 26, 2012 11:07 pm

    Update: Lolotai is back at tight end.

    Weber State …

    Weber State: Defensive coordinator Jody Sears has been named interim head coach for the 2012 season.

    Weber State, some more …

    from another coaches hiring blog …

    Weber State: Defensive coordinator Jody Sears has been named interim head coach. He will serve as interim for the 2012 season and he will continue as defensive coordinator as well. Prior to joining the Weber State staff a few months ago, Sears was a long time assistant under Paul Wulff at both Washington State and Eastern Washington.

    according to dayton m., gibber said that 40% of the freshmen and soph go through the swinging door. seems high, true, but, not too far off i suspect.

  134. al April 27, 2012 12:18 am

    talk about swinging door…waylon the wanderer lolotai.

  135. al April 27, 2012 12:22 am

    i’ll bet that of the alleged 40%, 65% is about playing time.

  136. Stephen Tsai April 27, 2012 12:50 am

    I think in the ACC and SEC, freshmen don’t finish to go to the NBA.

    I don’t think many quit because they want to be closer to home.

  137. al April 27, 2012 1:42 am

    yah…they join the working people at an early age.

    kentucky for example.
