Game day: Tulane

No sense rehashing the obvious.

What’s at stake has been stated many times.

It will be interesting to see how David Graves performs. It’s always a little different when an opponent has a full week to prepare for a specific quarterback.


  1. wafan November 26, 2011 5:43 am

    Pretty sneaky, Mr. Tsai.

  2. wafan November 26, 2011 5:43 am

    Good game day Saturday to the Warriors, too!

  3. wafan November 26, 2011 5:46 am

    Warriors have no where else to go but up.

  4. wafan November 26, 2011 5:47 am

    Bravissimo to the Red Raiders and the Raiders!


  5. wafan November 26, 2011 5:48 am

    Nice job last night by the Wahine VB’ers and the MBBows.


  6. wafan November 26, 2011 5:54 am

    Really hoping they are able to sell out the SSC for the vb subregional games. That would be awesome to see and hear.

  7. wafan November 26, 2011 6:01 am

    Hot scones slathered with strawberry preserves for breakfast. No cranberries, though.

    Anybody interested? Come on over!

    This is going to be a super day!!!

  11. wafan November 26, 2011 6:14 am

    Strong winds forecast in Hawai’i. Hope they do not negatively affect the Warrior air attack and the T-Gate!

  12. 99club November 26, 2011 6:15 am

    Good morning A-joe, wafan, and Maleko88!

    David Graves first start tonight is going to be memorable. Can’t wait.

  13. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:17 am

    good morning tsaikos!

    Wishing Warriors a BIG W today!

    Just win, baby!


  15. WarriorNY November 26, 2011 6:47 am

    I still like The Undertaker as a nickname for David Graves…

  16. Old Diver November 26, 2011 6:56 am

    Having a week to prepare for David Graves will not help. David brings an infectious enthusiasm to the game which spreads to all three phases of the game. Like many I see something special in him.

    Go Warriors!

    It’s the day after, which means at least 10 people will say: “I think there were more people at last night’s state championship game.” Never fails.

  31. Slugger November 26, 2011 8:46 am

    Wes’side Warrior,

    Your cousin (?) Makani sang the National Anthem & Hawai’i Pono’i at the game last night. I have a short video of it that I’ll post later. Great voice!

    Lol ST: are you referring to what would happen to Graunke after practicing all week knowing he’d have the start? Pressure would rear it’s ugly head…hope that’s not the case this time since Graves did not have a great week of practice. Even throwing to air thru walk-thrus was not pretty…let’s hope the fact that Tulane is supposed to be an easy win gives the compensating edge!

    Utah State on their way to beating Nevada….up 21-17, less than a minute, with the ball. Went for it on 4th and inches at mid-field.

  60. Dan-O November 26, 2011 11:47 am

    ST….my guess is that Kahuku’s enrollment is double of Iolani’s.

  65. Dan-O November 26, 2011 11:51 am

    Yup…Utah State wins…..qualifies for bowl game. They deserve to go somewhere. I believe they will finish in a tie for 2nd in the WAC, with just 2 losses.

  66. Willie November 26, 2011 12:00 pm

    Impressed with Utah State, wow, 4 wins in a row and all last minute squeakers by either rallying or holding on. More impressive that all this done with a backup QB that came into the UH game only throwing 7 passes all year. Well da guy must of grown up, together with his team!

  67. Old School Dave November 26, 2011 12:00 pm

    Give credit where it’s due. Gary Anderson of Utah State deserved to be Coach of the Year in the WAC. His plan is now showing results.

  68. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 12:03 pm

    What irony… the team that nobody wanted wins the WAC… heh heh… just rewards, eh?

  69. ai-eee-soos November 26, 2011 12:23 pm

  70. IMUA HAWAII November 26, 2011 12:28 pm

    Big congratulations to Utah State!! They wanted it, they worked hard for it as a team & they deserve it. Hope they take the WAC title & their bowl game.

  71. 3-Prong November 26, 2011 12:34 pm

    ST #58. Enrollment at Iolani is 1315 total for grades 7-12. Average class size (inc girls) is just over 200. Think punahou is over double that.

  72. R Smoke November 26, 2011 12:34 pm

    Isn’t it ironic that none of 3 teams that are leaving the WAC to find better competition in the MWC, won the WAC this year. Had the conference realignments happened this year instead of last year, this might be a lot different.Good for LA Tech and Utah St for strong finishes!

  73. 3-Prong November 26, 2011 12:40 pm

    ST#58. Kahuku class size is about 300.

  74. WarriorNY November 26, 2011 12:45 pm

    Hey all,

    Not sure if this was posted already but Kealoha Pilares was one of 3 NFC players of the week!

  75. Willie November 26, 2011 12:50 pm

    Utah State plays to win, takes chances when warranted. Their coaches got olos, they had nothing to lose this year and made the right decisions at the right time. Totally agree that Anderson deserves WAC Coach of the Year, look at what he had to work with. Plus, 1st QB got hurt; not only did not miss a beat but played with great efficiency using the backup QB’s strengths.

    Way different than playing not to lose!

    thanks for the link- it’s a very good version but not a patch on IZ, I LOVE that song and have IZ on CD. It always makes me want to go back and visit the beautiful island with the beautiful people.

    Outright WAC Champs.

  83. el burro sabio November 26, 2011 2:10 pm

    Kahuku doesn’t even make the top ten in public high school enrollment, less students than Waipahu. Go figure all this Division I and Division II nonsense.

  84. d1shima November 26, 2011 2:20 pm

    If form held, the Raider fans cheered against the Puns! πŸ‘Ώ

  85. jm2375 (Infuse) November 26, 2011 2:54 pm

    Al – dumb question. Always cheer AGAINST Punyhou

  86. Markazulu November 26, 2011 3:01 pm

    Congrats LA Tech makes me feel a little better we beat the Wac Champs πŸ˜‰

    But seriously i love thier young QB an Utah St to I hope to be seeing them in the future maybe in a better playing field. Good Job but anyways congrats to Iolani an Kahuku I hope luck will be on our Warriors side tonight. REMEMBER people UNLV, San Jose were all supposed to be EASY wins!

  87. chopsueyboy November 26, 2011 3:19 pm

    ah no nodding here

  99. koakane November 26, 2011 3:35 pm

    gone and gone

  100. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 3:40 pm

    Lucky we have 20,000 tonight.

  101. d1shima November 26, 2011 3:41 pm

    Is that your “On-the-spot” reporting?

  102. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 3:45 pm



  103. d1shima November 26, 2011 3:46 pm

    Well, I’ll be there to double check your work! πŸ˜‰

  104. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 3:52 pm


    Come have a drink and some more food before u go in at our tailgate.

  105. d1shima November 26, 2011 3:55 pm

    Better idea.

    You come my house for food and beer and we drive back in time for the end of the 1st quarter…

  106. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 4:03 pm

    Rainy weather.

  107. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 4:05 pm

    I think Sonny Dykes will be coach of the year.

  108. Shoko November 26, 2011 4:14 pm

    Dykes certainly deserves it.

  109. Shoko November 26, 2011 4:23 pm

    Sort of skeptical whether the WAC would have four bowl eligible teams this year. There’s still that possibility, but the Warriors game against BYU will be a nail biter.

  110. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 4:39 pm

    Different look for the Warriors tonight.

    They’re going with white pants.

  111. LizKauai (iPhone) November 26, 2011 4:45 pm

    Hi ST. My seat in L yel is right above your booth, I think.

  112. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 4:46 pm


    With the pics of ur Halloween feast at your house that is very tempting!

  113. Da Punchbowl Kid November 26, 2011 4:54 pm

    Small crowd, slow blog. Mighty Warriors!


  114. NYUH November 26, 2011 5:01 pm

    Looking forward to this game tonight. Rankings are nice. WAC championship would have been nice. But you got to protect the home bowl.

    Hi Tsai-kos!!

    Yum yum gobble gobble Happy Thanksgiving Turkey aside, it’s finally game day!

    Got to the stadium early to grab some delish gyros (I know I know but this is for din-din), thirst-quenching sprunch (oh wait they ran out of punch so gotta wait) and have wiped down our half section’s seats lol (two with bird doots) lol and are now finally sitting in our seats above ST.


    Excited to see our beloved Warriors give it another go here at Aloha Stadium of which I am thankful too that it even exists πŸ˜‰

    I can see the team handsomely dressed in their black and whites getting ready

    Go Warriors!!

    Im starting to doubt the doubts about a student boycott.

    5 people in entire qq student section, 2 of which do not look like students.

    Four defensive starters are out for Tulane, including Mackey, who has 145 tackles in 12 games.

  132. UHfan808 November 26, 2011 5:45 pm

  133. UHfan808 November 26, 2011 5:45 pm

  141. UHfan808 November 26, 2011 5:52 pm

    We got the ball first

    BTW, Have a great game, everyone!

  142. Shoko November 26, 2011 5:53 pm

    Touchdown!!!!!! Yeeeeehawwww!

  148. 99club November 26, 2011 5:56 pm

    My 54 point prediction was too low for the Warriors. Dang.

  149. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 5:57 pm

    First career TD for Trevor Davis.

  150. Da Punchbowl Kid November 26, 2011 5:58 pm

    Das how sposed to look. Jes like that!

  151. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 6:00 pm

    So far so good. QB and WR looking crisp.

  152. jonj November 26, 2011 6:02 pm

    any live streams??

  153. Matt November 26, 2011 6:03 pm


    Only blacked out in HI.

  154. 99club November 26, 2011 6:03 pm

    Oooo….so close. They’ll hit that play sometime tonight.

  155. Shoko November 26, 2011 6:06 pm

    Thanks, finally got the stream. Guess it was delayed for a bit.

  156. 99club November 26, 2011 6:08 pm

    Smart kicking game for Tulane…

  157. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 6:08 pm

    Interesting punts by Tulane.

  158. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 6:09 pm

    By the way, that was Sellers on the previous blitz, not Estes.

  159. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 6:13 pm

    That was Ostrowski’s sixth drop of the season. UH has three drops this game.

  160. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 6:17 pm

    Tulane fans look to travel relatively well. I’m surprised to see a good sized following.

  161. Matt November 26, 2011 6:18 pm

    What a catch by Stutz!

  162. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:18 pm

    That was amazing!

  163. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 6:19 pm

    Nice to see the deep connections back!

  164. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:19 pm

  167. 99club November 26, 2011 6:22 pm

    Your turn D!

  168. Matt November 26, 2011 6:24 pm

    Come on Defense!

  169. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 6:25 pm

    Substitution bullcrap AGAIN

  170. 99club November 26, 2011 6:27 pm

    14-7 end of the 1st.

  171. 99club November 26, 2011 6:28 pm

    USC 29-0 over UCLA at the half.

  172. UHfan808 November 26, 2011 6:29 pm

    99 – Ooh, that sounds great! You made your own, and what kine? (yum!)

    Good going, Team!! Keep it going!!

  173. kawika49 November 26, 2011 6:30 pm

    went to 255, how come i get the game free?

  174. UHfan808 November 26, 2011 6:34 pm

    Nice and chilly up here. If you’re looking for good ventilation with a not too icy cool breeze, you’re missing out πŸ˜‰

  175. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:34 pm

    I say he’s out of bounds!

  176. UHfan808 November 26, 2011 6:35 pm

    ST – was that in?

  177. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:36 pm

  181. GoWarriors November 26, 2011 6:39 pm

    Hmmm . . .

  182. GoWarriors November 26, 2011 6:40 pm

    Wonder if the Warriors will win by 40.

  183. kev-1 November 26, 2011 6:41 pm

    should’ve been overturned, but too bad

    the receiver shouldn’t have been that wide open to begin with. the defense is playing too soft.

  184. GoWarriors November 26, 2011 6:41 pm

    I hope the Warriors have more fans than last nights high school games.

  185. kev-1 November 26, 2011 6:42 pm

    talk about walking right in to the endzone

  186. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:42 pm

    Here we go!

  187. LizKauai (iPhone) November 26, 2011 6:43 pm

    ST’s alma mater is playing during halftime. πŸ™‚

  188. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:43 pm

    Oh well….

  189. 99club November 26, 2011 6:43 pm


    Nope. Out of the freezer section of the local commissary. Still good though.

  190. Matt November 26, 2011 6:43 pm

    Give Ostrowski some stick um.

  191. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:43 pm

    Love it!

  192. 99club November 26, 2011 6:44 pm

    There we go! 49 yards at a time works!

  193. Buffoman November 26, 2011 6:44 pm

    Kekaula guys were talking baout the punts not being returnable. No need, the punts so short the other team just needs to catch and not fumble. Field position is in their favor, not ours.

    Our defense is just not that good. How can we let yet another loosing team stay with us? This is nuts!

  194. kev-1 November 26, 2011 6:45 pm

    kekaula needs to stop saying . . . “David Graves got hit hard” he’s overreacting.

  195. kev-1 November 26, 2011 6:46 pm

    where was miahs stick um on that play

  196. 99club November 26, 2011 6:46 pm

    1st down!

  197. kev-1 November 26, 2011 6:47 pm

    wth . . . the oline can’t block a 4 man rush

  198. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:47 pm


  199. Matt November 26, 2011 6:48 pm

    TD Iosefa!

  200. 99club November 26, 2011 6:48 pm


  201. Matt November 26, 2011 6:48 pm

    Your turn defense. Stop em.

  202. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:49 pm

    Josef’s TD … Now if we can can some help from a defense!0

  203. GoWarriors November 26, 2011 6:49 pm

    Looks like a shootout.

  204. El Las Vegaso November 26, 2011 6:51 pm

    O looks good about 80%

    D needs work about 30%

  205. kev-1 November 26, 2011 6:51 pm

    LOVE that diving touchdown. He was not going to be denied

  206. 99club November 26, 2011 6:51 pm

    67 yard return. Ouch.

  207. El Las Vegaso November 26, 2011 6:51 pm

    special teams 50% tsigh…

  208. cavewarrior November 26, 2011 6:52 pm

    Why do qbs and receivers have no bench to sit on?

  209. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:52 pm

    Shoot out for sure!

  210. Matt November 26, 2011 6:54 pm

    Missed FG, I’ll take it.

  211. 99club November 26, 2011 6:54 pm

  212. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:54 pm

    How many drops have there been so far?

  215. mo808 November 26, 2011 6:56 pm

    We needed that!

  216. 99club November 26, 2011 6:57 pm

    Nice! We need a score before the half.

    John Hardy Tuilau… I’ve never seen someone with a talent like his…

  231. 99club November 26, 2011 7:17 pm

    That dude is amazing!

  232. Da Punchbowl Kid November 26, 2011 7:23 pm

    So good so far. Defense needs to shut ’em down. If they do, we win.

    Graves looks good except for the ints. Stutz and Miah gotta catch the ball. Miah looks less than 100%.

  233. cavewarrior November 26, 2011 7:26 pm

    Miah has bruised ribs from 1st Q

  234. Da Punchbowl Kid November 26, 2011 7:26 pm

    Who else HATES the Heineken commercial? That dude is annoying!

  235. Da Punchbowl Kid November 26, 2011 7:27 pm

    Graves definitely brings a different vibe to the game.

  236. gmahoney November 26, 2011 7:29 pm

    Graves brings some heartstopping excitement to this game. Other than the picks, he is doing well. Warriors need to put this game away!

  237. gmahoney November 26, 2011 7:30 pm

    I did my job: “Block that kick!” cheer at the tv. Missing my seat in the N end zone.

  238. kawika49 November 26, 2011 7:32 pm

    Nice tackle by DL

  245. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 7:38 pm

    Defense giving up big plays, but stopping when needed.

    Hurry up looks much better. Flows more.

    Special Teams gives up a long return, then turns around with a blocked FG.

    Nice hit by GDL…

    Let’s see how 2nd half goes.

    Let’s go, Warriors!!!

  246. 99club November 26, 2011 7:39 pm

    Good D. Way to stay home.

  247. 99club November 26, 2011 7:40 pm

  250. 99club November 26, 2011 7:45 pm

  251. Matt November 26, 2011 7:45 pm

    TD!!!! Davis again!

  252. 99club November 26, 2011 7:45 pm

    TD Babeeee!

  253. WarriorNY November 26, 2011 7:45 pm

    TD x 2!

  254. mo808 November 26, 2011 7:45 pm

    TD! I like this QB!

  255. kawika49 November 26, 2011 7:46 pm

    i was wrong, wrong, wronf….good score.

  256. kawika49 November 26, 2011 7:47 pm

    Any one else got free 255?

  257. Matt November 26, 2011 7:47 pm

    Stadium looks really empty. <20K people empty.

  258. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 7:47 pm

    Now, that was a nice drive by the O!!! Nice and consistent!

  259. duffer November 26, 2011 7:50 pm

    Yep Maui. Get about 10 guys watching the one small screen. πŸ™‚

  260. 99club November 26, 2011 7:52 pm

  266. kawika49 November 26, 2011 7:55 pm


  267. mo808 November 26, 2011 7:56 pm

    Yes, pass interference…

  268. kawika49 November 26, 2011 7:56 pm

    again I’m wrong

  269. Matt November 26, 2011 7:56 pm

    UH should show Tulane how to run the halfback pass and let Iosefa throw one. Only difference is Iosefa used to be a QB and has an arm.

  270. mo808 November 26, 2011 7:57 pm

    Ok defensive holding!

  271. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 8:00 pm


    UH had a play in which Iosefa would throw to Moniz.

  272. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:04 pm

    Those guys from Tulane must have grease on them because we cannot seem to wrap up.

  273. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 8:06 pm

    Interesting ply callin by Tulane lol

  274. Matt November 26, 2011 8:07 pm

    Send JHT in for the block on the punt.

  275. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 8:07 pm

    Nice defensive series!

  276. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 8:07 pm

    I’m not That surprised Tulane is such a bad team this year.

  277. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 8:08 pm

    We need to score now and kill Tulane’s desire to fight.

  278. Matt November 26, 2011 8:09 pm

    UH should put two returners out there from now on. One short and one at normal distance.

  279. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 8:12 pm


    Tulane is shooting themselves just fine. I’ll take those continued passes to the outside behind the los. Hahaha

  280. Matt November 26, 2011 8:14 pm

    nice pick Tank!

  281. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 8:14 pm

    Throwing into double coverage. Tulane we love u!

  282. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:14 pm

    Tank Hopkins is da man!

  283. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:15 pm

    Oh no!

  284. Matt November 26, 2011 8:17 pm

    What is going on here? Warriors starting to fall apart.

  285. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 8:17 pm

    Gotta buckle down, people. Things getting ugly.

    Let’s go, Warriors!!!

  286. Matt November 26, 2011 8:18 pm

    Defense gotta keep playing tough.

  287. kev-1 November 26, 2011 8:19 pm

    why the qb switch?

  288. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:21 pm

    That was just a bad series of plays. Iosefa is having a tough time holding on to the ball. and why do the directional kick thing? The punts have great hang time but really…38 yards per punt?

    Starting to look like those 2nd half blow ups we’ve been experiencing. Let’s hope it does not continue.

  289. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:21 pm

    Nice defensive stop!

  290. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:23 pm

    Defensive Defensive!

  291. 99club November 26, 2011 8:24 pm

    OK Tulane. Call the interception play during this T.O.

  292. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:25 pm

    Have not stopped them yet on this drive.

  294. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:30 pm

    Mack looks worried, as he should. It’s just not clicking on special teams, defense and offense = 7 points and lots of time on the clock. UH needs to score on this series.

  295. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 8:31 pm

    Greenwood at game. She said she has not seen UH win this year.

  296. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:31 pm

    I would very much like to see this game over with a W!

  297. Stephen Tsai November 26, 2011 8:31 pm

    Possible concussion for Graves.

  298. Committed Road Warrior November 26, 2011 8:32 pm

    ST #294:

    Turnstile count is about 3,000 worse than last week’s game against Fresno. Wonder how ticket sales for the BYU game are going.

  299. Matt November 26, 2011 8:32 pm

    That turnstile must include the players, coaches, trainers, concession folks, medical folks, media, security, janitors, roaches, rats, etc. Sure doesn’t look like that many people in the stands.

  300. Las Vegas November 26, 2011 8:32 pm

    turnstyle 21,542 ?

    my guess is that 10771 customers entered, exited and entered again

  301. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:33 pm

    I hope Greenwood gets an answer to our collective prayer!

  302. Matt November 26, 2011 8:35 pm

    Come on offense. Punch it in.

  303. kev-1 November 26, 2011 8:36 pm

    thanks for the update ST . . . the guys on tv have no idea

  304. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:37 pm

    Austin throws a nice ball and he’s so calm. He gets smoke by a blindside blitz and then calmly throws a completed pass.

  305. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:39 pm

    TD! UH!

  306. Matt November 26, 2011 8:39 pm

    Nice pitch by Austin while taking a big hit.

  307. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 8:40 pm

    A Beeeeeg Tsai of relief! Nice play!


  308. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:40 pm

    Iosefa seems to be getting better. The guy will be a beast when he’s a junior.

  309. GoWarriors November 26, 2011 8:47 pm

    Make the spread!

  310. duffer November 26, 2011 8:49 pm

    How did Coach Dana’s team do

  311. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 8:50 pm

    Woohoo a win!

  312. Iwonderwhytheyhateme November 26, 2011 8:53 pm

    If BYU is as bad as Tulane, we going bowling.

  313. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 8:56 pm

    Gratz, Warriors!!!

  314. mo808 November 26, 2011 8:57 pm

    A nice win! Now on to BYU! Cheehoo! The stadium will be filled!

  315. Buffoman November 26, 2011 8:58 pm

    #313 Unfortunately BYU is not as bad. There simply cannot be any lapses in any of the phases or it’ll be a loss.

  316. duffer November 26, 2011 9:02 pm

    With the possibility of Graves out, who’s next on the pecking order

  317. duffer November 26, 2011 9:02 pm

    After Austinl

  318. kev-1 November 26, 2011 9:03 pm

    with the oline playing like they have been, you need Graves mobility

  319. ai-eee-soos November 26, 2011 9:04 pm

    my guess: Austin, then Shutter.

  320. kev-1 November 26, 2011 9:05 pm

    how can they say erratic play led to Graves benching? There was no erratic play. There were a couple of stalled drives, but I wouldn’t call it erratic.

  321. kev-1 November 26, 2011 9:06 pm

    I guess we just need to wait and hear it from the coach as to why they pulled Graves. The TV and radio are contradicting themselves.

  322. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 9:06 pm

    Once again… flashes of brilliance coupled with flashes of huh???

    We gotta develop that killer instinct. It’s been lacking all season. We keep allowing opponents to rally. We gotta kill their desire to fight.

    I like the promise shown by our youngsters. Graves looked pissed for being yanked. Just gotta keep at it. Game experience can only help for your future!

    Prepare well for BYU, Warriors!

  323. Buffoman November 26, 2011 9:07 pm

    Looks like the Wahine BB team lost again. Is coach’s job in jeopardy? Nice person, but got to produce. recruiting must be tough sledding.

  324. Matt November 26, 2011 9:09 pm

    Graves is injured.

  325. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 9:09 pm

    What? SJSU beat Fresno, eh? …

    heh heh…

    Now if only Idaho can beat Nevada… and NMSU can beat Utah State…

    Then UH would be tied for 2nd place.. LOL

  326. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 9:11 pm

    2 TD … 2 Interceptions.. QB efficiency of 119… got to improve his completion ratio and cut down of those interception… Hopefully he’ll be alright for next week.

  327. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 9:13 pm

    Was good to see the team fight back and score after the chaos of the safety and out-of-bounds free kick.

    Weird… the one team I was worried about preseason, LaTech, we beat. And yet, they end up WAC Champs.

  328. Buffoman November 26, 2011 9:13 pm

    #326 Just imagine if we did what was predicted? We would not at this point be speculating about 2nd or 3rd place. Well it’s in the past now.

  329. Wes'side Warrior November 26, 2011 9:14 pm

    Anyways, 2:30 am. Time to crash.

    Enjoy your night, everyone!

    Did BYU play this week? If not, another team with a bye before playing us. How many is that this season anyway?

  334. ai-eee-soos November 26, 2011 10:01 pm

    Down to three QB’s.

    I just realized that with Graves injured (concuss ?), we are down to:

    Shane Austin, Cayman Shutter, and Kevin Spain.

    Never thought this could happen.

  335. papajoe2 November 26, 2011 10:02 pm

    Yup. Found out BYU did have a bye this week after smashing New Mexico State last week. I guess if you gotta play Hawaii, make sure you have the previous week off to prepare.

  336. 808Bowler November 26, 2011 10:16 pm

    Graves had a concussion. I doubt he plays next week. Mack said he was saying things that didn’t make sense on the side line. going be a tough game aganist byu.

  337. papajoe2 November 26, 2011 10:19 pm

    I predicted scores all year was wrong so I picked the opponent, trying to break the jinx that I am creating. This week I deliberately didn’t make a predicition and the Warriors won. Anything for a win.

  338. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 10:34 pm

    Graves with a concussion is not a good thing… Austin, though was steady tonight… 8 or 9? 90 yards? or something close. Is Spain completely healed? Shutter and Spain, which one can scramble?

  339. LizKauai (iPhone) November 26, 2011 10:41 pm

    God Bless!

    Fast Healing to our Warriors!

  340. al November 26, 2011 10:47 pm

    i confess…i ran through the turnstile. it must have spun at least 2001 times.

  341. Old Diver November 26, 2011 10:48 pm

    Man it was cold tonight.

  342. hossana November 26, 2011 10:51 pm

    Many years ago they had a Bottom Ten of Football Teams opposite the Top Ten and they also had what is known as the “crummy game of the week.”

    Hawaii and Tulane deservedly belong in the Bottom Ten and this game between UH & Tulane would definitely have been designated the crummy game of the week.

    Both teams were pathetic in displaying how erratic and crummy they were and even though Hawaii won…it was a comedy of errors on both team.

    Goodbye Mack and the rest of the UH coaches and thankfully, we can bring in Div. 1 coaches and not apprentices as Head Coach and coordinators.


  343. al November 26, 2011 10:52 pm

    duffer…coach dana eh? sounds like you are on a first name basis relationship.

    anyway, her team lost 60-43.

  344. al November 26, 2011 10:53 pm

    old diver…not to mention wet.

  345. al November 26, 2011 10:54 pm

    well, we had to out score tulane to win and we did.

  346. al November 26, 2011 10:55 pm

    iosefa is getting better with each game.

    however, he really needs to learn to take care of the rock.

  347. Old Diver November 26, 2011 10:56 pm

    Has the StarAdvertiser turned into the Gold Sheet? Why would they mention the Warriors didn’t make the spread. Who cares, they won. Doesn’t the StarAdvertiser staff realize half the teams every week don’t cover the spread?

  348. al November 26, 2011 10:56 pm

    billy ray’s confidence level is rising with each down. he looks like a really good one out there.

    hopefully he can gain 15-20 lbs in the next two years.

  349. al November 26, 2011 10:58 pm

    miah needs to focus on the ball better. he seems too anxious to make a big play. he really should stick to football. he, too, could be a really good one.

  350. al November 26, 2011 11:01 pm

    old diver…look for the subliminal message.

    that would indicate that a certain player who has been viciously implicated by some of the public for dabbling into final score results alterations, perhaps is not the one or that this matter of an anonymous letter is also bogus.

  351. Old Diver November 26, 2011 11:05 pm

    My cousin attended the Stanford, California game last week. He said it started to rain the minute they sat down and never stopped. They were frozen stiff. On a side note, he said Stanford designed their stadium renovation when they weren’t doing well and down sized it from something like eighty thousand to about fifty thousand.

  352. al November 26, 2011 11:09 pm

    i like what i saw from young david graves tonight.

    he has that big play ability.

    he has that two dimensional capability that we saw from moniz earlier.

    his scrambling abilities are very evident of a young fran tarkenton.

    still much work to do. it will help with more reps.

    needs to work on his decision making, but, that will develop in time.

  353. al November 26, 2011 11:11 pm

    old diver…that’s why i never condone a new stadium built for 30-35k in hawaii,

  354. al November 26, 2011 11:15 pm

    oline had a rough time out there again tonight.

    graves was running most of the night or forced in to a hurried decision.

    so did austin.

    whereas their counter part ryan griffin was knocked once or twice.

    i am beginning to wonder if its our young oline or perhaps they need a change in teaching methods? this unit has not improved over the course of the year.

    and has not been a strong suit in the past few years.

    what is it?

  355. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 11:23 pm

    We knew since 2008 that the Oline was going to be our sore spot… and while recruiting efforts were made, the recruits either didn’t pan out admission wise or went elsewhere. We got a good group of underclassmen who should be ready to play next season, but nothing to shore up the lines this season.

    Is it too difficult for us to recruit good linemen on the Offensive side of the ball for the RnS?

  356. cocobean November 26, 2011 11:24 pm

    Next man up. No excuses. Biggest game of the season coming up.

    Austin is capable so is Sutter. I know Rolo and Mouse will come up with a game plan that gives Austin the best chance to succeed.

    They kept it pretty simple for Graves, didn’t call too many plays where he had a lot of reading to do. Called a lot of wideout screens or one primary receiver plays. Took advantage of his athleticism.

    All we need to know.

  358. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 11:30 pm

    In fact, we haven’t have a solid Oline since 2006, really.

  359. Kevin November 26, 2011 11:31 pm

    If David Graves was speaking non-sense, I hope they take a good hard examination on his concussion.

    It’s one thing to see stars and get your bell rung, another thing to have scrambled verbal communication.

  360. Old Diver November 26, 2011 11:37 pm

    Lead sentence on tonights game from the StarAdvertiser.

    “The University of Hawaii kept alive its faint hopes for a postseason bid Saturday night with a 35-23 nonconference football win over hapless Tulane.”

    I guess it’s been decided by the StarAdvertiser staff that the Warrior’s chances of winning next week are faint. Sounds like locker room material.

  361. madeinhawaii November 26, 2011 11:38 pm

    We won… that’s what counts… another game next week… hope our warriors heal, stay healthy and come together as as single unit next week.

  364. cocobean November 26, 2011 11:54 pm

    #357. Thought the O line did okay. They have shown improvement since Mo went down. They’re a more stable bunch with the same lineup for a couple of games.

    I’ll concede at this point of the season the Oline is probably the least talent group aside from our place kickers. Part of this is due to injuries and partly due to the numbers recruited.

    Our O lines have always been the most prideful, close knit player group. Always had the highest participation rate in off season workouts. They’ll get the job done against BYU/

    Good night!

  366. al November 27, 2011 1:00 am

    let’s own up to the fact that since 2007 we have not had any improvement in our oline’s play.

    it’s not the players. it’s the way the techniques are being taught or rather not being taught. it is one of the parts that is broken and this staff has not been able to fix.

  367. al November 27, 2011 1:06 am

    quote of the day…

    On the importance of next week’s game…

    We said that we’re writing a three-chapter book and today was the first chapter and everybody contributing to writing to it in this first chapter, and now we have the second chapter, and we have to get that done before we work on the fourth chapter..”

    …coach mack from the

  368. Kevin November 27, 2011 1:12 am

    One would assume that some stability in the offensive line coaching position for UH would have come with Gordy Shaw.

    From the job bouncing from Wes Suan to Dennis McKnight to Brian Smith and then to Gordy Shaw one would have thought that Shaw’s time with a program like Minnesota in the Big Ten would have yielded the improvement UH was looking for.

    It seems like the offensive line and special teams are two areas of the game that UH football has lagged in for a while.

  369. Capitolist/WassupDoc November 27, 2011 1:19 am

    Let’s focus on the Wahine volleyball team – the ESPN announcement will be made today (Sunday) at 1 pm our time.

    Re concussions – bells being rung are no longer something funny or ignorable.


  370. hossana November 27, 2011 4:35 am

    Mack blames the weather for the poor attendance and the UH A.D. blames the economy. WHO ARE THEY TRYING TO PUT A SPIN OR HAVE THEY HAD CONCUSSIONS WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT?? Put a decent, I mean a decent product out there, and people will come. When you have a “crummy game of the week” who are going to waste their time to watch a hapless team out there. Even though UH won, they looked pathetic. Special teams were awful, defensive players still can’t tackle as they always seem to be groping or reaching out and catching air…oh, yes, they made a few stops but then again, this against Tulane…ha..ha..a bottom ten team…the offensive team with the lineman…geez…yes, I know about the injuries but give me a break…these are Mack’s recruits…the receivers are probably the worse we ever had compared to Salas et co. last year and the glory yrs. of Davone Bess & CO. but the offense, and yes, injuries have hurt their consistency but even before then, geezez, the play calling…execution …was just pathetic… Give me a break, Mack and Donovan. Weather and the economy has nothing to do with the poor attendance. Let me repeat this again. WEATHER & ECONOMY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POOR ATTENDANCE. If that is your excuses for the poor attendance, then you need to look in the mirror with a straight face. GIVE ME A BREAK!!

    may the weather clear up and the economy go on an upswing so the seats will be filled… least according to the HC and the AD……we all KNOW that’s the reason right??????????

  391. kev-1 November 27, 2011 7:50 am

    yeah of course. I would have gone to the game last night, but I can’t get wet. Plus, the economy is so bad, I couldn’t afford a rain poncho, let alone a ticket.

    It is sad that the AD and HC refuse to acknowledge the dissatisfaction with the product. Personally, I believe in supporting the team regardless of wins or losses, but the reality is that many don’t. They need to recognize that and do something about it.

    There has been ZERO push to try and get more fans in the stadium in the form of advertisement, offers, etc.

    UH needs to televise the big UH-BYU games of the past this week to get people fired up for the game. Play some damn commercials to show people that this game has history.

    Lastly, if they truly believe the economy and weather is the problem, distribute ponchos and rebates at the gate.

    About attendance, it’s not about “the product”. It’s about supporting our student athletes who represent US. Stop whining and complaining and put your money where your mouth is, put your butts in the seats. It’s senior night, be there or (be quiet).

    I like what I saw out of Graves too. Needs to improve some of his decision making, but that comes with experience. I have the inclination that the coaches may not think he necessarily fit what they want to do.

    I think you take what he can give you. He may not be the pure pocket passer, but I don’t think we have one of those on the roster. Well maybe Spain, but still. The guy has fire.

    Wooooo hooooo, like how you say it, gmahoney! Thanks for reminding us it’s Senior Night next week too. I am ready to bust out my “BEAT BYU” towel with the old-school RAINBOW logo. Oh yeah, baybee!

    Someone asked me last night, “If you weren’t working here at the game, would you be here?” And I said HELL YEAH! I remember there were nights in the ’80s and ’90s when the weather was terrible and the stands were full!!! Let’s go people!
