Goodwill trip

Head coach Greg McMackin is part of a small group of Hawaii representatives who will travel to Japan on a goodwill tour next month.

It will be the second Japan trip for McMackin who is using it to maintain good relationship as well as — maybe, hopefully — find a football prospect.

This is part of UH’s attempt to break into the Asia market.

    Coach Mack- you go, guy! I think your personality- courtesy, transparent genuine aloha for people and systematic approach to yur work will serve you well in this culture. The bravado domination attitude of the west is not going to last forever.

    Great debates/discussions last night/this morning on ways for UH to become more appealing to the Pac-10.
    Trouble with travel subsidies isn’t with the Pac-10. The problem will be if schools from the WAC, such as San Jose State or Fresno State — or worse, New Mexico State — start asking for subsidies.
    UH is the dean of WAC schools and has a lot to offer. Thing is, UH also is at a geographical disadvantage, and as it learned in 1998, there is nothing to prevent a bunch of presidents from getting together in an airport conference room and figuring out: hmmm. how much money can we save if we ditch Hawaii?

    No matter. I cannot make the 10am game anyway. Got my “Friday” to deal with here in the office until 1pm.

    Will be able to catch the 2pm and the 4pm games though.

    Hopefully, the scenario will be that I show up wondering about if we beat McNeese St. only to find out I can catch the baseball alumni game after all because Na Wahine made it to the championship game at 4pm. That should fit right in with the volleyball game at 7pm.

  7. d1島 February 13, 2010 9:27 am

    Is this small Hawaii group only from UHAD?
    Only UH?
    Hawaii State?

  8. d1島 February 13, 2010 9:29 am

    …or worstest LaTech!

  9. d1島 February 13, 2010 9:30 am

    …or is it a “small group”…i.e. Mack is the designated “First off the Bus” guy?

  10. wafan February 13, 2010 9:34 am

    Go Mack! Get a recruit/game! Heck, just get a break into their market!!!

  11. Stephen Tsai February 13, 2010 9:35 am

    Couple of business guys, I think.
    But the intent is to help UH.
    Actually, I think they should invite Shoji, too.

  12. d1島 February 13, 2010 9:36 am

    They should take PowderPuff! 🙂

    I don’t understand this breaking into the Asian market for sports thing– especially in connection with the PAC 10.

    PAC 10 schools and their locations have it all over us if they want to develop an Asian market– USC, Stanford, Cal, UW, UCLA, all have more Asian contacts, prestige, and programs than UH. California has all the mega media– from India, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and China, automobile, phone, computer tech companies in LA, San Francisco, and the Silicon Valley. I will grant you we have a lot of people who migrated from Asia generations ago and no longer speak the language.

  23. mctruck February 13, 2010 9:59 am

    Maybe coach Mac can recruit a couple sumotori’s for goal line moving people out of the way types?

  24. mctruck February 13, 2010 10:02 am

    How’s about hiring sumo coaches to teach UH’s o-line/d-line, better body techniques?

  25. whitey February 13, 2010 10:15 am

    good morning tsaikos.

  26. whitey February 13, 2010 10:17 am

    mctruck, we already have a tsaiko who knows the sumo technique and would be willing to share his knowledge with the warriors if they asked. right rasu?????

  27. SteveM February 13, 2010 10:35 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Good luck to Coach McMackin! Like Liz said, his persona will represent Hawaii well in Japan.

  28. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc February 13, 2010 10:41 am

    On our way up to the “makai” campus in a few minutes to watch softball, baseball, more softball, and volleyball. Last night we caught the last half of the third set as the men got shut down 3-0. We’ll be listening to the basketball on the radio.later as well.

    Yesterday was not a good day for UH sports. Hopefully, at least one one of the teams will win today.

    Went back to our regular third base seats last night – last row against the fence. I saw a couple of Tsai-kos sitting about ten rows below us.

  29. Garret February 13, 2010 10:44 am

    RGM was assigned his number by the Dolphins.

    The Dolphins have assigned jersey numbers to their 2010 signings, and they are as follows: wide receiver Ryan Grice-Mullen (17)

  30. Garret February 13, 2010 10:51 am


    Thank you for your post at the end of yesterday’s blog–that link worked for me. One thing that you have to keep in mind is that the article is from last summer, and it said that the Big 10 TV numbers it had from from *2008*. I actually posted that article on this blog back when it came out last year.

    In 2008 the Big 10 Network was new and many, many cable systems did not carry it. Also, they were giving away the Big 10 Network for *free* on many systems–I had the Big 10 Network for free on Dish Network for that entire year, with 4 simultaneous Big 10 football games in HD to choose from sometimes.

    Now, the Big 10 Network is on a lot more systems (charging the same amount per subscriber on each cable system means that the more cable companies carry them the more they make) and they are not giving their service away for free anymore. That is why the article published *this week* stated that each Big 10 team will get over $17 million from their TV contract. The SEC’s TV contract is for a fixed amount for 15 years, so the Big 10 Network’s increased revenue means that the Big 10 gets more per team from TV than the SEC.

    I hope that clears up the difference between the numbers in 2008 vs. the numbers in 2010. The SEC’s numbers will stay flat while the Big 10 Network will continue to make more and more money as more cable systems carry them. That is why the Pac-10 wants their own network!

  31. wafan February 13, 2010 10:57 am

    Good thing they moved Samoa to dodge the hurricane/gale.

  32. Garret February 13, 2010 11:00 am

    One thing I hadn’t kept a record of was the TV revenue for the MWC and C-USA, so I thank anonymous for posting those. Assuming the mtn network hasn’t gotten more cable systems to carry them (that is possible since their football teams are higher profile now than they were in 2008), the MWC gets $11.7 million per year and C-USA gets $11.3 million per year.

    The old ESPN deal was rumored to pay the WAC about $1 million per year. The new deal was stated to be a significant increase, but they refused to release numbers so I do not think it got anything close to MWC/C-USA numbers. When UH releases its financial records, we can actually figure out exactly what each WAC school gets from ESPN.

    I’m surprised that the C-USA gets about the same as the MWC, as that means that C-USA must get a lot more from TV than the WAC. Remember, ESPN went to the MWC first, and the MWC turned them down because they got a much bigger TV deal from CSTV/mtn…only after the MWC said no did the WAC get an offer from ESPN, and ESPN reportedly offered the WAC much less than they offered the MWC.

    If UH wants to create interest in Japan they need to pick up a couple of baysooballers.

    Maybe I’ll make the VB game tonight.

  38. al February 13, 2010 1:22 pm

    uh should explore the possibility of an exhibition game in japan with say, ucla. the hawaii, los angeles, and japan connection would go a long way.

    hawaii and los angeles still remain as some of the top leisure travel destination points for the japanese market.

    that japan bowl vision of june jones was brilliant but no one followed up on it.

    The “Fabulous Five” is like the 2007 Hawaii Warriors and the 1980 Hawaii Rainbow baseball teams. They were Pied Pipers where the entire State followed them to great heights. Interestingly, Red Rocha and June Jones came from Oregon. Let’s look for another Coach from Oregon. Oh, Coach Mac is from Oregon. Sorry!!!!!! Is Mark Campbell, who is from Oregon available? Just a thought.

  55. Matt February 13, 2010 3:13 pm

    Does Coach Chuck Mills still live in Hawaii? He is considered by most to be the “father of modern Japanese football” and the Japanese Heisman trophy is named after him. If anyone could get us quickly moving in the Asian market, it would probably be him. I remember the blog talking about him visiting Warrior practices in the past. Jim Donovan should make a call. It couldn’t hurt.

    Texas had a pretty good Junior Day today…they got 13 commits in less than 24 hours and they still have another Junior Day in 2 weeks with 13 top recruits coming to that one. They won’t be able to take a full 25 in 2011, so they should basically be done recruiting in 2 weeks.

  64. Garret February 13, 2010 3:31 pm

    Hopefully the results for the Japan trip will bear fruit quickly…since the Pac-10 will make their decisions in less than a year. Even more importantly, was ST hinting that the WAC might ask UH for a travel subsidy soon for their members? Showing greater value to a conference might help stop that type of talk, plus it would help if UH wants to be sure they are a part of the MWC/WAC combination conference if/when the dominoes start to fall in a year or two.

  65. Old Diver February 13, 2010 3:55 pm

    Great hearing suggestions concerning UH’s bid to become a Pac-10 member. At this point I don’t see this happening, but it would be unwise not to take a shot.

    I call this the $26 million solution.

    The University of Hawaii once it becomes a Pac-10 member will host the Pac-10 championship game every year for the next twenty years. The State of Hawaii will guarantee to pay the Pac-10 $24 million in each of those years adjusted by whatever formula you want to use. Say What!

    Let’s look closely at the numbers. I am counting on resident researcher Garret to refine these numbers. The Pac-10 currently has a television contract of $48 million a year. Add in the bowl appearance monies and each school rakes in about $7 million a year. With conferences like the Big-10 and SEC having TV contracts in the neighborhood of $200 to $300 million a year it is not inconceivable the Pac-10 could renegotiate a new TV contract for $98 million a year. Add in bowl appearance monies and the $24 million from the State of Hawaii and you come up with about $150 million. Divided twelve ways and you have $12.5 million. The Pro-Bowl estimated tax receipts are about $3 million and I am using that estimate for the Pac-10 Championship game. I’m also going to add in a $1 million TV exposure benefit from the championship game. With Pac-10 membership comes benefits, like having a student activity fee of $200 a year, which raises $4 million a year. Additional seats sold at games of ten thousand per game for five games at $30 a seat raises $1.5 million, and this is not counting increased attendance of road games which will draw Hawaii fans on the west coast which benefits Pac-10 member schools and more high profile out of conference opponents for our home games. An increase in enrollment of 2000 students will add $14 million to UH coffers.

    The State will then add $2 million to the total payout for the Hawaii Bowl which will have Pac-10 affiliation. Of course let’s throw in another $1 million in TV exposure for the State.

    So far we have $12.5 million in TV revenue, tax benefits of $3 million for the championship game, $2 million in national TV exposure, activity fee $4 million, additional gate $1.5 million and increase enrollment $14 million. By my count we have $37 million in revenue versus $26 million in expenses. We will have to subsidize travel but the numbers show we can handle it.

    Things don’t stop here though. The Pac-10 will want to see our road map for the future. This will come in two ways, leadership and money. No more lip service from the Governor, to the Board of Regents to the President and the Chancellor. If you aren’t going to lead then beat it, we don’t need you. We need money from the legislature that isn’t there, we are tapped out. Senate and House leaders will have to thank the moralist for their input but will have to vote on the big picture issue, a lottery.

    I would like to hear your input, and Garret would you be so kind to check my numbers and correct my guesstimates. It’s kinda tough trying save the world in twenty minutes. Like I said I don’t believe we have a chance at Pac-10 membership, but if we are going to give it a shot, let’s make it our best shot.

    Old Diver,

    Go Warriors

    Didn’t see him at softball and he’s not in his usual seat here at the arena for volleyball.

  79. MP February 13, 2010 7:49 pm

    inre: japan recruits

    Im thinking the sports that japan recruits may make an immediate impact would be in baseball and/or softball, women volleyball, and women basketball (based on what Mai Ayabe has done so far).

    I feel Coach Shoji should definetly recruit in Japan because those women can play. If Coach Mac can lock into one or two guys who show promise at say wide reciever or defensive back, better yet.

    Also, make a video highlights of Mai Ayabe, send it to a few Japan news papers and ask them if they know of a few more like her that would be interested in coming to Hawaii and playing for UH.

    Do little things like these (with minimal financial output) and see how things playout.

    Better than doing nothing.

    What a great day at UH.

    Softball ladies found their true potential today against a Top 10 opponent and the Warriors too got redemption.

    Found Rob25 and Koakane in the 3rd set and that Alberta team is a dam. Good squad. Great kids too. They were great sports with all the “friendly” heckling Koakane did all night. Looks like they had a blast here in Hawaii. Like many teams that come here, they too know understand that Hawaii has the greatest vball fans on EARTH. Lots of Aloha from the fans in attendance to our Canadian visitors after the match.

    I’m feeling too good about a great day I’ve had at UH today. Glad to share it with some Tsaikos and some other friends. Life is better when you’re not busy trying to bring others down while attempting to sound like a smarta___.

  88. Kazz (blkberry_storm) February 13, 2010 10:05 pm


    Tomorrow Ill attempt to sound like a know it all also by posting my thoughts on the opening weekend with the Rainbow Wahine Softball team.

    I just wished I was able to make the games our freshman pitcher Kaia Parnaby won for us. I was very anxious to see her in action during the off season and now I gotta wait until they get back from the road in just over a month.

    Otherwise, I saw some worrisome stuff the first two nights and saw a lot of promising things today. Let me just say that today they got what I wanted them to get after the first night… A “taste”. A taste of what they are capable of this season.

    Kekoa, was a fun day at the softball stadium. Joined by HiFlyer and Ralph today. Then it was off to vball. Second set was damn exciting…

    Now I am too tired to even get vertical off my couch and comprehend what is happening in the replay of the very same vball game I was at a few short hours ago…

    RE : Warrior Basketball,

    Ok so I was reading some comments on the UH loss to LaTech. Was wondering if anyone heard Tes Witlock on the HTSA radio show afterward. Some of the comments were talking about how it was a very different analysis of our current B-Ball team than Curran has been giving.

    I am not a *huge* B-ball fan but from what I heard of Curran’s analysis, Hawaii lacks the necessary talent this year and the game plans thus far have not been working….(second part is kinda obvious I suppose)…

    Anyway did anyone hear what that Witlock was saying aboutt he team?

    Kazz – look forward to it. I may get smu’d for this but it’s a free country. HA seems to be dropping the ball when it comes to covering UH Wahine sports, except vb.

    Congrats to the Wahine on their great wins today.

    hmm… short track speedskating relay. what chaos.. fun to watch

    I’d be real interested to get some info on Witlock’s remarks too.

    Will be looking forward to your thoughts on softball, Kazz. Watching the first game on tv, I thought Coach C was very conservative and close to the vest which didn’t put pressure on the opponent. Looked like 1st game nerves the way they were swinging at the 2 strike risers that were out of the zone. One or two times through the line up, I can understand. But, gotta adjust as the game goes on. Obviously, they did much better for the Stanford game. What adjustments did they make?

    I would think that if Hawaii were to get into the PAC-10 that we would no longer have the Hawaii Bowl as it would be the PAC-12 with a conference championship game like the SEC and Big 12.

    Hi MP — did you over-eat too last Sunday? 🙂 Even though you sit on the bar side, you guys are designated Tsai-kos and hence have Tina serve you. 😆

    Wanted to ask about Japanese athletes. No doubt they have their share of 4-5 star athletes. My impression is that the sport teams and leagues (high school through pro) are extremely competitive in recruiting so that it might be harder to entice athletes to leave to go abroad for sport scholarships. What do you think?

    sry to interrupt .. as a suggest for Coach Mack and co. is perhaps one way to showcase Hawaii Warrior football is through an anime series (sry not sure if this was discussed b4) like Eyesheild 21 (E-21) (

    When E-21 first can out I wanted to say it, but didn’t. Now E-21 is at episode 145. (btw, any anime that surpasses 100 episodes is like a restaurant making it through the 5th year … and u know how difficult that is).

    It would be soo cool if E-21 had an episode or two that has something to do with Hawaii Warrior Football. It won’t hurt to try and ask.

    Anyways, anime is BIG in Japan — think like 50% of the movies playing are anime.

    If you’ve sometime you may catch some or all the episodes at Crunchroll: (

    good luck Coach Mack!
