In case you missed it, catcher Katie Grimes is writing a daily diary about the Rainbow Wahine softball team’s experiences at the WAC Tournament in Las Cruces, N.M.

Here’s her first entry: Katie’s diary.

* * * * *

Sure, the summer conditioning program has not even started, but plans have been drawn to expand Paipai Falemalu’s football role. Falemalu, who is listed as the No. 1 defensive right end, also will be used as an outside linebacker in certain defensive schemes.

Slugger writes about the tireless Don Weir:

I had the pleasure of assisting Dr. Don Weir with Na Koa membership mailings, getting to know a bit about the person who moved through Na Koa with high energy. He now works with the UH Foundation office as a Gift Officer, but is still handling the away games’ festivities for 2010. Don is also very much involved in the UH Letterwinners Club, fundraising and feeding members at an annual BBQ.

#24, WR/DB – Don Weir came from San Diego, CA and played for UH in ‘71-‘73. He graduated with an undergraduate degree at UH and continued adding letters behind his name: Masters from San Diego St. U. and a PhD in Education from USC. Don’t worry! He’s rooting for UH in September. If you’d like to hear stories about who was on the field with him, you’ll have to invite him to a Cattle Call.

Don’s better half, Colleen, was introduced to him at a San Diego beach softball match. This year marks their 20th anniversary. Congratulations! The only ‘child’ they have is Maliko, a gorgeous chocolate Lab. Colleen works at the Lunalilo Home as the Director of Community Relations & Admissions. You might spot her on campus, as she’s working on her Masters at UH.

Dedicated? In the 1990’s, Don spent summers in Hawaii coaching Punahou’s JV defensive backs, as well as teaching summer school. He would fly back in February to work at the Punahou carnival. 2003-2005 would find him on the Punahou sidelines as an offensive coach. Don spent many years working in education: teaching, managing educational projects, and supporting educational programs. He was presented the 2006 Jonathan Tarr Foundation Humanitarian Award for his support of a program providing scholarships to San Diego County students in under-served populations.

Last little-known piece of trivia about Don: he raises orchids and is the family gardener.

Go up & say “Hi!” the next time you see him at a game or UH event. And don’t forget to invite him to the next Cattle Call.

    Why doesn’t somebody write down unwritten rules?

    Why doesn’t somebody let me know if they’d like the tickets in case I win!

  6. d1島 May 12, 2010 3:11 am

    Having Falemalu involved to a greater degree in more schemes is a good thing.

  7. d1島 May 12, 2010 3:13 am

    Slugger knocks one outta the park!

    Great job with Don Weir’s bio….. a Great Rainbow Warrior for Life.

  8. d1島 May 12, 2010 3:14 am

    Off to stop #2 of my 24-hour buffet pass from Harrah’s!

    then, Hiho…..

    Have a terrific day erryboddy!

  9. NYUH May 12, 2010 3:29 am


    McMackin as coached at all levels both college and professional, but Hawaii was his first gig as a head coach. He took over the Warriors in 2008 and has since led the team to a 13-14 mark including a loss in the 2008 Hawaii Bowl.

  10. mctruck May 12, 2010 3:56 am

    Aloha, and good moring Tsaiko’s….

    Alright, Slugger! Nice writeup on our ever- inspiring Don Weir!


  14. Garret May 12, 2010 4:08 am

    Don Weir is a great Warrior supporter and a great man. I’m glad that Slugger wrote a bio for him. I wish him well at the UH Foundation.

  15. Garret May 12, 2010 4:09 am

    I agree with d1–getting Paipai involved more would be great for the Warrior D.

  16. LizKauai (iPhone) May 12, 2010 4:16 am

    “I thought about how this was going to be my last road trip as a Rainbow Wahine and how I wanted to make sure it was a long one.”

    Go Softbows!

  17. Bulla May 12, 2010 5:43 am

    Slugger, a very, very nice writeup on Don…..that’s how you spell dedication.

    Good morning to all, Paipai in an expanded role will help the D 🙂


  18. jm2375 May 12, 2010 5:55 am

    Good morning Tsai-kos!

    Great job Slugger!

    Good luck to the Wahine!

    Good luck to Na Pueo & Pac-Five in the DI and DII softball tournaments.

    I am pleased by the approach toward utilizing ALL options/talents by the coaches as the WARRIORS evolve.

  23. Da Punchbowl Kid May 12, 2010 6:58 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Don Weir, a great guy to have on our side! A gentleman, a scholar, an athlete and a booster par excellence!

    Oh yeah… Top Twennysomething!

  24. Da Punchbowl Kid May 12, 2010 6:59 am

    Good job Slugger!

    UH needs to find you a job!

  25. Slugger May 12, 2010 7:10 am

    Good morning, Tsaikoland!


    Got some irons in the fire…

    Thanks for the props. There’s a lot more about Don that I didn’t write. He was paddling in the mornings in a one-man canoe, but lately he’s been paddling with the Kalama ‘ohana. Very cool! One additional point: don’t invite him to a Cattle Call at Camelia’s. The smoke bothers his eyes.

    Why doesn’t somebody write down unwritten rules?

  26. Kekoa (iPhone) May 12, 2010 7:30 am

    Nice job Slugger! Don Weir is a valuable asset to the UH program. I’m glad we have such a dedicated former player in our midst.

    Mahalo Dr. Don for your tireless effort in promoting Warrior Sports.

    The dominoes in the WAC might start rolling *very* soon. If BSU actually does get the invitation to the MWC, then every national TV broadcast that BSU this season will talk about how they will be in the MWC next year…that cannot be good for the WAC.

    Boise State’s days in the Western Athletic Conference could be numbered.

    The Mountain West Conference presidents meet next month, and there’s at least a decent chance that they will formally invite BSU — if not immediately after the gathering, then before July 1.

    Here’s why:

    If the MWC wants Boise State’s performance in the 2008-10 seasons to be included in the formula that determines whether the MWC receives an automatic BCS bid for the next cycle of games — and it sure as heck does — then the Broncos must be a member of the MWC in 2011.

    And for them to be a member in 2011, they must be invited by July 1, 2010.

  28. Garret May 12, 2010 7:45 am

    The Pac-10 hired a Hollywood agency to help them form their TV network. Note that the Pac-10 is looking to expand with schools in big media markets…if market size and population is their #1 criteria, that makes it pretty obvious what their pecking order will be for expansion.

    The Pac-10 has hired Creative Artists Agency (CAA) to explore expansion opportunities and advise the conference on its next media rights deal.

    The Hollywood-based firm also will help the conference reposition its brand to highlight its nexus to the entertainment (Los Angeles) and technology (Silicon Valley) markets of the U.S.

    The three mandates are interrelated and increase the likelihood that the Pac-10 will launch its own cable channel when its current media deals expire after the 2011-12 school year.

    Part of CAA’s mandate will be to identify schools and markets where the conference could expand, and any Pac-10 expansion will include bigger media markets that could help give a conference-owned cable channel a bigger base, Scott said.

  29. Slugger May 12, 2010 7:46 am

    Katie Grimes’ diary entry is great. Nice to keep up with what is happening with the team. Sending a virtual ti leaf lei to them. In 2007 when they were playing at ASU, I handed down a ti lei for the dugout. They won! Stay healthy & play hard.

    GO WAHINE!!!

    SLUGGER: Nice job on Don Weir’s bio.

    Morning all

  31. al May 12, 2010 7:50 am

    nice write up on uncle don weir.
    what a great and dedicated warrior!

    perhaps at the next cattle call we can share our pictures of our chocolate labs.

    one thing don should know is that everyone is welcome to join us at a cattle call. so stay tuned.

  32. al May 12, 2010 7:52 am

    Why doesn’t somebody write down unwritten rules?

    (another oxymoron)

  33. Pomai May 12, 2010 8:00 am

    I know some may not agree with me but I put part of the blame for the position the WAC is in on Benson, it is very obvious that he has looked out for only BSU. He shows his dislike for Hawaii every time I’ve seen him, just listen to him and watch his body language.

  34. NYUH May 12, 2010 8:10 am

    Thanks Garrett.

    We’ll see if BS gets invited to the MWC. I’m sure they are worried about BS kicking their butts and yet not providing a lot of audience power.

  35. ty1hawaii May 12, 2010 8:13 am

    Why doesn’t somebody write down unwritten rules?
    Aloha, TY

  36. Pomai May 12, 2010 8:25 am

    I’m wondering if the lack of TV audience will have anything to do with BSU going to the MWC?

  37. al May 12, 2010 8:28 am

    karl benson while a bsu alumus would be crazy to favor the ushering of bsu to the mwc or big 12. that move for all intents and purposes will hurt the wac’s credibiity and his job.

    when bsu leaves the wac what benefit will benson have?

  38. Pomai May 12, 2010 8:30 am

    al I feel that you will see him move on also, maybe not right away but soon after.

  39. al May 12, 2010 8:33 am

    mwc will invite bsu. that’s nearly a lock as it would behoove them to grab the likes of bsu in their efforts to petition the bcs to accept their conference.

    however, how much would bsu gain?

    first, it is not a given that the mwc would be invited to the bcs with or without the likes of the mwc.
    why would they want to cut the pie into more pieces?

    second, bsu can bust up the wac every year, pick and choose non-con foes so that they will be bcs bowl eligible year after year. their chances are reduced with a stronger mwc schedule.

  40. al May 12, 2010 8:34 am

    pomai….where would he move on to?
    jobs like his are few and hard to come by.

  41. al May 12, 2010 8:37 am

    if current predictions come to fruition such as nebraska and missouri bolting the big12 for the new big10.

    then i could see the likes of bsu being invited to join the big12 along with say tcu.

  42. The Piper's Son May 12, 2010 8:42 am

    AL – didn’t SLUGGER write that DON WEIR’s eyes get bothered by smoke (Camellia)? Got to find another place for a CC if you would want a comfortable place for him – maybe Big City or some place like that.

  43. al May 12, 2010 8:54 am

    piper’s son….didn’t see that one. however, there isn’t much smoke since the grills have these inverse smoke “inhalers”.

    not unless dpk comes, because then the grill space is overloaded.

    but, yah we do have other random eateries that we do partake at. in fact, we were discussing that issue the last time.

    stay tuned.

  44. A-House May 12, 2010 8:58 am

    al & Pomai:

    MWC will hire Benson as their “dog catcher”!

    I would be surprised if any conference would want him as their commissioner.

  45. A-House May 12, 2010 8:59 am

    Thank you to Slugger for the great write up on Don Wier and Katie Grimes for her diary on Wahine sb.

  46. (Jesse)James May 12, 2010 9:01 am

    Good morning Tsaikos…hope all is well…

    Great write up on Don Weir…awesome guy.

    Nice blog/diary by Katie Grimes…I too hope it is a LOOOOONNNNGG road trip.

    Did someone say CC??? Sometime in about 3 weeks??? LOL

  47. A-House May 12, 2010 9:02 am


    didn’t TCU bolt MWC for Conf USA?

    would you want to invite them back?

    with BSU and TCU in the mix, it would be very difficult for any team to undefeated and thus greatly lessen their chances of a BCS bid.

  48. Stephen Tsai May 12, 2010 9:03 am

    Of course, you can go to Camelia’s and just get the veggies.
    Oh, what would be the point of a veggie Cattle Call.

  49. SteveM May 12, 2010 9:05 am

    Good morning everyone!

    I think I learned a lot about Slugger from her writing as much as about Don Weir. 🙂 Excellence in both cases! Another Tsai-ko bio page to add.

    Al — it’s been a long time since we had a Cattle Call at Makino Chaya, Buffet 100, or Chin’s. 😛

  50. koakane May 12, 2010 9:09 am

    good morning tsaikos country

    d1 and whitey: win plenty for all us “losers”.

  56. Jack Flash May 12, 2010 9:22 am

    Slugger (or anyone who might know)-
    If i go down to the UH ticket office, will the person behind the window be able to tell me what seats around my football season tix are currently available? The guy i spoke to on the phone said no. I understand that they have to honor requests first, but the area we are in is always pretty open.

  57. Kazz (blkberry_storm) May 12, 2010 9:25 am






    LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The Western Athletic Conference today released its 2010 all-WAC softball teams and major awards as selected by the league’s head coaches. Regular-season champion Hawai`i swept the major awards, as Jessica Iwata was named WAC Player of the Year, Stephanie Ricketts was named Pitcher of the Year, Kelly Majam was named Freshman of the Year and Bob Coolen was named Coach of the Year.

    Iwata, a freshman shortstop from Lihu’e, Kaua`i (Kaua`i), led the WAC with a .488 batting average and 1.050 slugging percentage in WAC play. She posted conference highs in hits (39), RBI (32), doubles (12), total bases (84) and at bats (80). She had multiple hits in 12 of 20 WAC games and posted an 11-game hitting streak during conference play.

    Ricketts, a sophomore right-hander from San Jose, Calif. (Archbishop Mitty), posted a perfect 13-0 record with a 1.55 ERA in WAC play. She had 52 strikeouts and three shutouts in 81.1 innings of work in conference games. She also tossed a perfect game against Nevada on April 24.

    Majam, an outfielder from Pine Valley, Calif. (Mountain Empire), led the conference in runs scored (31), walks (16) and plate appearances (87), and ranked second in slugging percentage (.926) and on-base percentage (.529) in WAC play. She broke the WAC and Hawai`i records for home runs in a season (25) and currently ranks third nationally in the category.

    Coolen earned Coach of the Year honors for the second time in his career after leading his team to its third WAC regular-season title and the top seed in this week’s WAC Tournament. In WAC play, the Rainbow Wahine went 19-1 and led the conference in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs, hits, RBI, home runs, total bases, wins, hits allowed, doubles allowed and triples allowed.

    Hawai`i led the way with six total players on the all-WAC teams, followed by Fresno State and New Mexico State with five apiece. Eleven of the players were repeat selections from a year ago, while all eight schools were represented. The complete teams are listed below.


    First Team
    Kathy Cox, Boise State
    Haley Gilleland, Fresno State

  58. Garret May 12, 2010 9:33 am

    Everybody who says that BSU shouldn’t go to the MWC is ignoring all the facts I posted here last week. Here is a summary of what I posted earlier:

    1. The WAC capped the payout to schools that go to BCS bowls to $3 million *before* expenses. That means that BSU will make a profit of about $1 million for going to a BCS bowl and UH might actually *lose* money the next time they go to a BCS bowl. Karl Benson and the WAC Presidents appear to think it is a good idea to take all the profit away from the team that earned the money–so, NMSU and SJSU would make more than UH if UH went to a BCS bowl!

    2. The MWC gets a *much* bigger payout from the NCAA basketball money than the WAC…this equals or exceeds the profit from a BCS bowl for a WAC team. So, every MWC team gets the benefit every year that a WAC team gets from going to a BCS bowl! That is *guaranteed* money no matter how any particular school’s football and basketball teams do.

    3. The MWC lets their schools keep a bigger portion of the BCS bowl money–they didn’t pass a new rule like the WAC to take all the profits away. So, BSU will earn 2x to 3x more when they go to a BCS bowl as a MWC member than they would as a WAC member.

    4. The MWC gets more from their TV deal than the WAC…much, much more. When the TV contracts are up, guess which conference will get a bigger TV deal, especially if BSU is in the MWC? The WAC would end up playing for free on Thursdays if they want to be on TV.

    5. BSU’s President has openly said that they want the MWC because it would reduce their travel costs and their fans would be able to drive to a lot more of their games. Reducing the travel costs would basically be worth about the profit from a BCS game.

    6. If the MWC becomes an AQ conference, their conference winner would get into a BCS bowl even if they were not undefeated. If they had 2 highly ranked teams, they could get 2 teams in BCS bowls.

    I could go on to make this list at least 10 long, but I already discussed the other factors in other posts.

  59. al May 12, 2010 9:39 am


    my thought was tcu going to the big12 if nebraska and missouri go big10.

    the tcu horned frogs did a lot of leapfrogging. tcu used to be in the old southwest conf until it disbanded. the major players went to the big12. tcu was left at the dance without a date. eventually they joined the wac. then they jumped over to the conf-usa. soon after they accepted an invite to the mwc where they are currently at.

  60. Slugger May 12, 2010 9:41 am

    Congrats to the Softball team players and Coach Bob!

    Jack Flash,

    If you have tickets that DON’T have a premium associated with them, you should be able to change your seats if you go to the ticket office. If you do pay a premium, you will have to wait for the scheduled time when seats are reassigned. I just had my ticket changed to one a section over & lower in the Yellow mauka seats, by going to the ticket office. Midori7 called & spoke to the supervisor who helped her change the A-House ‘ohana seats via telephone. I went to the ticket office because I wanted to see where the seats were.

  61. al May 12, 2010 9:46 am

    bsu should wait to see who goes to the big10 before deciding upon where to go. more options could arise.

  62. papajoe2 May 12, 2010 9:48 am

    congrats on the softbows’ conference selections. i’m disappointed that Kanani Puu-Warren didn’t make anything though. with so many Wahine getting noticed from the WAC, this may give fuel to the other teams, for certain of their players that didn’t get selected. the Wahane will just have to prove that they are deserving by winning the tournament. IMUA WAHINE!!!!

  63. Slugger May 12, 2010 9:48 am

    I want a Veggie Call! or someplace I can get huge salads. Rasu Begasu, my Mom & I met at Sweet Tomato in LV & I was very happy. What about Hale ‘Ikena? They have a good buffet. I’m not ready for a CC yet…

  64. Jack Flash May 12, 2010 9:49 am

    Thanks Slugger!
    Yes- our seats have a PSC charge on them. But we are in the lower corner sideline, orange seats. There’s always extra seats available around us. I just wanted to see if any of those seats near ours are already spoken for as someone else’s season seats awaiting renewal. Does the computer screen at the ticket office show this?

  65. jm2375 May 12, 2010 9:52 am

    Veggie Cattle Call – oxymoron

    Congrats to the Wahine & Coach Coolen on their All-WAC selections!

    SteveM – Buffet 100 no stay. Closed last year. Is Chin’s still around?

  66. Kazz (blkberry_storm) May 12, 2010 9:53 am

    FINAL RPI before WAC tournament starts and the Sunday NCAA 64-team selection.


    The Wahine’s first RPI came in at #14 and #16 is the lowest all season long.

    All I can say is, everyone (ESPN columnists, NFCA blogs, etc…) has us as a LOCK for a regional invite regardless of how we do at the WAC tournament.

    I’m sure the Wahine aren’t going to take a “token” invite into a regional. I think they want TWO WAC trophies instead of one.

    (complete RPI rankings available in link on my name)

  67. jm2375 May 12, 2010 9:53 am

    So, with Falemalu being used as OLB in certain schemes and the Beast also being listed as DE/LB, is there a change happening ?

  68. Jack Flash May 12, 2010 9:54 am

    Perhaps future cattle calls should be held at venues that openly support UH athletics? I haven’t been to a CC yet, so i really have no say in the matter. But, it would be good advertising on the blog here for those restaurants paying good money to UH like Outback and Big City Diner.

  69. GRM May 12, 2010 9:57 am

    Congrats to the Wahine Softball Team . The WAC accolades they received are testament to their great year so far. However, its not over yet – so keep on slugging!

    I think the travel expense thing is a bit of a crock. BSU would be trading three schools within “driving distance” for only two. Idaho, Nevada & Utah State are all less than 8 hours away driving while only Utah and BYU from the MWC are. Regardless, almost all sports would require flying to most conference away locations for Boise as Utah State is as close as they come at just under 5 hours by chartered bus.

    Boise just happens to be “remote.” Even their in-state rival Idaho is a significant distance driving (6 hours). It also isn’t necessarily less expensive to fly shorter distances than long. My last four R/T flights to Hawaii have cost less than my last four flights to the Bay Area, which is only an hour flight. Boise doesn’t have direct service to many of the WAC or MWC cities, which means that for bigger sports like Football you are going to charter anyway.

    There may be plenty of other reasons for them to go the MWC, but the travel cost one seems manini.

  71. Slugger May 12, 2010 10:09 am

    Jack Flash,

    You should call & see if the supervisor is there to determine if there are open seats in your section. Let them know you’d like the info to put it in your renewal for a seat change. SteveM was saying that you should make it clear that there is some flexibility in the request. He said if you specify specific seats & they are not available, you might end up without any seats. So, you might also let them know you’ll keep your original seats if none are available. Dat’s all I know.

  75. A-House May 12, 2010 10:21 am


    Thaks for your “travel” explanation.

    In my previous posts, I suggested looking at travel cost with the assupmtion that flying to Hawaii may be more cost effective and less tiring for the coaches and players IF schools had to “lay over”. However,this would be moot for the most BCS schools as they “charter” flights.

    But, the PAC 10 schools have been going to buses rather than air to reduce their travel expenses. Anyone who has ridden a bus for many hours can attest to the “tiredness” when you step off the bus.

  77. Ralph May 12, 2010 10:45 am

    surprised, definitely disappointed that Katie Grimes didn’t make at least the second WAC team. She’s a light hitter, .273, but as catcher who calls her own game, controls her pitchers, and catches nearly every inning of every game, she has done a yeoman’s job. Even in the major leagues, the catcher’s don’t hit for high BA, the catcher’s importance is the control of the game and pitcher and their defense, and that’s why they get the big bucks. Katie’s defense and release to second base is way above average. She has a .991 fielding per centage, 3 errors for all games, second to Majam’s 1.000.

    What it is ALL About!

    Saturday morning the UH Letterwinners Club will host all student athletes who are graduating ( as well as their families) , to a malasada, juice, and coffee reception prior to the graduation ceremony.
    At this reception Student Athletes are given special stoles to wear over their gowns as they walk the line to identify them as having paid the price twice: in their sport of choice, in the classroom. Proud family members and the soon to be graduates have a place to relax before the big celebration and we Letterwinners of the past have a chance to welcome them to the UH Athlete Alumni fold. Smiles and tears and pictures are the order of the day. .
    Tsaiko’s, you really need to see the product of your supporting efforts so we will make sure to get ST event pictures from the UHLWC Clubhouse.

    Mahalo from all of us UHLWC members for your support of the academic and athletic endeavours of our soon to be alums!!

    Big 12 could replace Nebraska and Missouri with TCU and SMU and would that leave Colorado out to dry or cozy up to MWC?

    The other school that BSU complained about travel costs to is located in Ruston. That is far more expensive and time-consuming to travel to than any MWC city. UH fans and many WAC schools probably wish that La Tech would join some other conference, but they have nowhere else to go…maybe none of the other conferences want to go to Ruston either? Add travel to UH, especially for nonrevenue sports (where the Hawaii exception doesn’t apply), and you have a big travel cost difference.

    The facts are that there *is* a difference in travel costs. I still cannot figure out why the WAC is having the softball teams travel to NMSU instead of somewhere centrally located. I miss the days when I could travel to Vegas to cheer for UH in WAC volleyball tournaments…

    BSU gets far higher TV ratings than any other WAC team. Games between BSU and other ranked teams will get a big TV audience.

    Want proof? What 2 teams were selected for a big nationally televised game in the first week of this season? When any 2 teams could be picked, the TV networks selected BSU and Virginia Tech. That is proof that the TV networks see BSU as having national interest.

    I think that goes to show how superficial and stat oriented the awards can be. When I looked back at the WAC selections, I had to double check and I guess Grimes’ hitting % is what kept her out, but hands-down we’ve got the best person behind the plate in the conference. Leadership cannot be measured on paper as well.

  104. Pomai May 12, 2010 12:10 pm

  105. rage777 May 12, 2010 12:12 pm

    Hate to admit that one of our rival coaches was right, but maybe it’s time for the UH home games to be played earlier. That way we have more East Coast people watching and the other team gets to fly out that night instead of the next morning. It will hurt Hawaii businesses, but it will help more of the schools out. Maybe they won’t blame the UH travel as an incentive to bash Hawaii.

  106. A-House May 12, 2010 12:15 pm


    receiver does not qualify entry to UH because he did not complete the “essay” part of the SAT.

  107. A-House May 12, 2010 12:22 pm


    when I was stationed at Ft Knox in the 60’s I had to readjust my thinking about college football because most if not all the games were being played around 1pm on Saturdays.

    thus, I had to rush home to watch games after 12 noon on Saturdays.

    Hawaii fans are spoiled that games are at night for as far back as I can remember – mid 50s – wonder how much adjustments are in order if our games are moved to a 3pm start time? it would be 9pm East Coast DLST. all games East of the Mississipi would be long over thus giving Hawaii exclusive watch time (provided fans want to watch Hawaii play)

  108. Kazz May 12, 2010 12:26 pm

    I think I’m nitpicking here, but I’ve had a while to think about it, and shouldn’t the WAC freshman of the year and player of the year award be switched?

    It’s hard, both Iwata and Majam have been stellar at the plate all year long, with Majam having an edge on notoriety, but Iwata also nabbing the NFCA NATIONAL Player of the Week award for the first time in the program’s history. It was like a quiet game of “anything you can do, I can can do better” between Iwata and Majam as far as individual stats go. Overall, Majam has the slight edge over Iwata in overall stats from the beginning of the season.

    Ah… WHO CARES??? It’s a great thing to question. In reality I cannot recall the WAC having to decide on how TWO freshman will be awarded for basically being the two best performers in the conference. 😎

    But with all the attention Majam has been getting all season long, I’m real happy for the local girl getting what she deserves as well. Kauai and all of Hawaii should be proud of her.

    I’m also a TINY bit surprised that Stephanie Ricketts won the Pitcher of the Year award, I’m thinking it might have been a close race between her and Michelle Moses of Fresno State, as Moses has had the better ERA all season long, but 13-0…. Cannot ignore that at all. I guess that goes to show how much the offense of the Wahine has superseded everything else the conference and even those of us close to home can take for granted the work that Ricketts put behind the plate all season long.

    Not much say about Bob Coolen other than it’s hard to dispute that he’s the hardest working coach in all of WAC softball.

  109. LK May 12, 2010 12:34 pm

    Why doesn’t somebody write down unwritten rules?

    Click on name link for a small sample of some obscure unwritten rules

    Baseball is a game of deception, and I think anything other than running to run up the score in a blowout is more or less acceptable. Lot of the unwritten rules refer to respecting the opponent and have some merit. My opinion is that on the field of play as long as you follow the written rules (which are many,) any edge you can get thru gamesmanship is to your advantage

    Garret what I was wondering was does BS U have a bigger in state viewing audience then us? Not a lot of tv set up there. LOL


    Idaho’s population is *more* than Hawaii’s population. Think about that when you put down the size of their TV market. Given UH’s poor TV ratings (partially due to live games being on PPV), more people in Idaho watch BSU’s games than people in Hawaii watch UH’s games.

    On a national scale (which is what matters to ESPN, VS, CBS CS, etc., BSU gets far more people to watch their games than UH.

    But if you want to keep making the point that there aren’t that Idaho is a bad TV market:

    1. It is bigger than Hawaii (Idaho is #39 in population, Hawaii is #42 in population)
    2. More people in Idaho watch BSU games than people in Hawaii watch UH games.

    I *hate* pointing these things out, so I think I’ll stop here and will stay away from this topic for awhile. I just don’t want UH fans to try to put down other teams by making points that actually hurt UH worse.

    That’s the thing I was unsure of. Even though they are the WAC awards, I wasn’t sure for the longest time if they take into account the ENTIRE season for all WAC players.

    So in that instance it makes it harder, but since the WAC season is what they were counting then Iwata has the edge.

    BTW, what sandwich?

  126. Bulla May 12, 2010 1:01 pm

    If Jori can outhit Makani in the fall and practices leading up to next season, then who knows???

    So yeah, tell all of Kauai that their own Jessica Iwata is PROOF that you can stay close to home and have the Wahine Softball program bring out the BEST in you at a high level of competition!!!!

  134. Darren May 12, 2010 1:36 pm

    Conference realignment…scares the heck out of me. If we stand still and don’t do anything…if we don’t have Plan A, and Plan B thru Plan Z in mind…then we could easily be left in the dust wondering what the heck is in the bag.

    And even if we’re winning, it ain’t gonna be any fun in the future…even when we’re constantly challenging for the WAC title with soon-to-be –perennial-contender Idaho and new-powerhouse-on-the-block Sacramento State. New Mexico State improves but is still 2nd tier in this future WAC. And people make jokes about the Sun Belt Conference.

    So Garret…in your mind what would be the best scenario for UH? It seems like the MWC is a lock to lose 2 – 3 schools to the PAC 10 and Big 12 (Utah, TCU, BYU). If the MWC loses all 3, better hope they want to go a 10 team conference, because that looks like the only way they’d even think about inviting 4 WAC schools in (BSU, Fresno, Nevada…then UH?). The powerhouses are gone, but the weaker sisters get quite a bit stronger. At least Utah’s gone…aren’t they the main one who didn’t want anything to do with us.

    Of course that only would have to happen if we don’t somehow delude the PAC 10 into making UH part of the PAC 12…we just have to plan for the other 99.9999% occurance probability.

    It doesn’t look promising on landing Conner since he has some top DI school close to home courting him. I wouldn’t doubt by the end of his senior season, he may have more BCS offers. Although, never say never.

    We may have a better chance of landing Sua Cravens, brother of 2010 football commit Siaki Cravens and recent Wahine Basketball recruit Malika Cravens.

  151. Garret May 12, 2010 2:10 pm


    My best scenario for UH would be for the MWC to lose Utah to the Pac-10 and BYU to the Big 12 and then having them expand to 12 to get a better TV deal and a conference title game. I’m not sure that the Big 12 would take TCU because they already *own* the Dallas-Fort Worth TV market and TCU doesn’t bring a new state to their TV deal.

    So, the combined conference would look like this:
    Fresno State
    Air Force
    Colorado State
    San Diego State
    New Mexico
    1 other team (Houston? SMU?)…or, if TCU goes to some other conference then stay at 10 teams

    That conference would get an *excellent* TV deal from ESPN since ESPN won’t be able to play the MWC off the WAC. ESPN would only have one option instead of 2, so the price would go up. With only one choice and a nice geographical coverage, the TV deal would probably be much more than what the MWC and the WAC gets now combined. That would probably be $2 million more per school than what UH gets now.

    If the Big 10 expands to 16 and raids the Big East, then reports now state that the Big East will lose their BCS AQ conference status. They might even lose the rest of their football teams to a raid from the ACC or Big 12. That would make the new MWC the #6 rated conference…giving it BCS AQ status! Instead of complaining about the BCS, UH fans would not worry too much about the C-USA, MAC, and the Sun Belt conferences being left out.

    That is my best-case scenario. UH would be back with UNLV, SDSU (I could probably house 6 Tsaikos who wish to see games against SDSU), etc., and would be in a BCS AQ conference. Recruiting would be *much* easier with AQ status and revenues would increase significantly with the improved TV deal, improved basketball revenue (some of those teams make a pretty good basketball conference), and the $2-3 million extra each year from the conference championship game and BCS bowl share. The conference would also get $1-2 million extra each year from NCAA tournament money.

    If the student fee lets UH’s Athletic Department get back to breaking even, the extra $2-3 million each year from the conference championship/BCS bowl share (plus another $2 million each year from TV and the increased basketball money) would take UH to the next level. Plus, UH would have better attendance with more attractive teams to show off. If the conference forced UH to provide a travel subsidy, UH could afford to offer $2 million per year as a buy-in to the conference and would end up $5 million or so *ahead* when you take increased attendance into account.

    Anyway, you asked what the best case scenario would be to me. Better teams to play, BCS AQ status, and $5 million extra per year would take UH to the next level.

    Garret – Thanks…AQ status seems like a far fetched dream…but you never know. Here’s hoping (fingers crossed) that JD and staff are evaluating all possible sceanarios.

  153. BleedGreen808 May 12, 2010 2:18 pm

    SJSU wins 6-5…faces Hawaii tomorrow.

    Go bows!

  154. Garret May 12, 2010 2:28 pm


    This is just an example of how the BCS rules can be put to UH’s advantage. The BCS mandates that the top 6 conferences will get automatic spots…so, if the Big East loses enough teams, the MWC will become an AQ conference by default. Many national publications are already speculating about the demise of the Big East in football if the Big 10 raids them.

    By the way, the new conference has to be called the MWC because if we create a new conference to merge the MWC and WAC then *all* the 6 years of NCAA basketball money the MWC has earned will be lost. Plus, all the BCS money the MWC gets from the 2010 season would be lost. Since the MWC has earned much more basketball money than the WAC, the new conference would be the MWC.

  155. Kazz May 12, 2010 2:36 pm


    Amanda Pridemore is good. She took the Wahine to 10 innings before the Wahine used some small ball to beat her. The next day, the Wahine had a lot of fun. 😎 The Wahine blasted Pridemore to an eventual 7-3 win.

    Only one shot to do it again this time. There is NO “tomorrow” because the “tomorrow” is the losers bracket.

    Tomorrow the Wahine start preparing for a 2nd conference trophy this season and actually begin the mental preparation of playing every inning as if it’s their last together this season.

  156. Kazz May 12, 2010 2:40 pm


    How can? Im looking at the bracket and I cannot see how a team can lose once and not play again.

  157. BleedGreen808 May 12, 2010 2:41 pm


    If the Big East is doomed to lose the AQ status, then why would Utah, BYU, or TCU would want to move to another conference if the MWC gets the AQ. I know the TV revenue thing, but the MWC could negotiate a better TV deal since they would have the bargaining chips.

  159. Ralph May 12, 2010 2:43 pm

    Yup Homey Mauer did a great job, got rewarded for his excellence, but he is an exception, look at each and every MLB team and check out the catchers, not many will do what Mauer did one year. Can he consistently hit at that level, time will tell. Pudge was good,10+ gold gloves, so was Campanella a long time ago, but good hitting catchers in the .300 are rare year in and year out. Past all stars, Yadier Molina, Cards, at .290, Posada, Yankees, .280, and Brian McCann, Braves, at .242. Posada and McCann have large contracts, but its what they do behind the plate and its a bonus when they also do very well in the batter’s box like Mauer did this past season.

  160. Pride. May 12, 2010 2:45 pm


    May 12th, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    we are thinking of the same player!

    IF Conner commits, will he be the first son of a player to commit as a true freshman?

    Brashton Satele? Kafentzis? a bunch of them.

    Sapolu is son of a player, but he went to JC first and looks to fight for starter at center.

  161. BleedGreen808 May 12, 2010 2:48 pm


    Why do women softball players wear shorts while playing or practicing? Doesn’t it ruin those pretty legs of theirs if they slide?

  162. NorthShoreFan May 12, 2010 2:50 pm

    I just hope we get another Kafentzis…seem to me that family got the most family members who became Warriors…

  163. BleedGreen808 May 12, 2010 2:53 pm


    Just in case you missed my post last night…accoding to the californian, Malia Cravens committed to play for the wahine Basketball in 2011.


  164. homey May 12, 2010 3:10 pm

    Kazz – How you ask? The winner of the tournament can have no loss or one loss. If they have one loss then they leave the tourney with one loss. That’s how.

    Ralph – They still are good hitters. Anytime you can get a base hit in the Majors 1 out of 4 times and also hit for power and drive in runs you are considered a good hitter. I also said top catchers…not all catchers like how you grouped them. Even our local boy Suzuki is doing an awesome job in Oakland (until he got hurt).

  165. homey May 12, 2010 3:13 pm

    BG808 – Just don’t slide on your lower legs.

  166. Darren May 12, 2010 3:27 pm

    As much money as the MWC may stand to get…the Big 12 / PAC 10 will still get more. Money talks…and Utah/BYU/TCU leave.

    I understand about the 6 AQ BCS conferences…just hard to imagine one of the existing 6 disappearing. But with all the possibilities being tossed around, you never know. How big the Big 10 wants to get will kind of dictate how big the snowball will be.

    So we just gotta ditch the WAC and hope that the guys that ditched us now want us to join them. Sorry, but if the call is made, it’s time to leave behind the other folks teetering on the threshold of FBS/FCS status…no time to be nice guys. It’s hard to believe how our possible opportunities range from quite tantalizing to absolutely nightmarish.

  167. Pomai May 12, 2010 3:41 pm

  168. Pomai May 12, 2010 3:44 pm

    Darren I always had the feeling that we were one of the big reasons, they all left the WAC in the first place.

  169. Kazz (blkberry_storm) May 12, 2010 3:50 pm

    Ok Homey you got me… 😳


    The Wahine used to have many uniform combos before the deal with Under Armour. Some of those unis used to have shorts for bottoms and the players wore knee pads.

    Now, I don’t think there is a school out there that doesn’t have the traditional long pants.

  170. Garret May 12, 2010 3:50 pm


    I agree 100% with your #166. The trouble is, will the rest of the MWC want UH or will they go for other schools…you asked me for my best case scenario, but the other cases are scary!

  171. BleedGreen808 May 12, 2010 3:50 pm

    homey and Pomai–

    LOL…Can it be a marketing idea? 😉 😉

    So, seriously, there’s no reason? Just another part of their uniform.

  172. Darren May 12, 2010 4:08 pm

    Pomai – I think it was more so the 16 team conference experiment gone bad. A geographic reach from Honolulu to Tulsa was unwieldy to say the least…more so for that many teams. Granted, the required 5 hour plane ride from the west coast did not help us.

    If the MWC loses it top dogs…we need to show that we are a bona fide Division IA program that can help fill some shoes. We need to compete at a high level for a Division IA program…we need to act like a Division IA program…and we need to support our university and its athletics department like a Division IA program. I think that’s what it’d take to get the call to the prom…like “Yeah, Hawaii is pretty damn serious about their athletics out there.” Otherwise we’d be left on the outside looking in…again.

  173. Darren May 12, 2010 4:09 pm

  178. Darren May 12, 2010 5:06 pm

    Keys to Success:

    1. Win.

    2. For those that are capable and have the wherewithal, fill up the stadium on game day.

    3. For those that are capable and have the wherewithal, donate to the program.

    4. Make Warrior football buzz 24/7/365. The passion of those on the Warrior Beat infects the entire state and all loyal off island followers.

    5. If we start to lose, continue with #2, #3 and #4 (why should Honolulu be any different than Tuscaloosa) which will lead to #6.

    6. Win.

  179. Kazz May 12, 2010 5:14 pm

    mucho arigatos for jogging my memory with Brashton and the Kafentzis boys!!

    It will be a Warrior legacy when more and more sons of former players commit to UH and make the family and Hawaii proud!!!

    your opinion: if UH joins the MWC as a BCS AQ conference, will more “blue chip” football players stay home? granted that the facilities must still be improved, but almost “gauranteed” $$$ will make it easier to upgrade all sports and put UHAD in the black.

    boo hoo…I’ll only be able to listen to part of the game tomorrow morning. 🙁

  186. Kazz May 12, 2010 6:28 pm


    I don’t know. Honestly, I am not interested in either. If the Wahine win the WAC tourney without breaking the NCAA home run record, then the REAL goal has been accomplished.

    Everything else added to a WAC Tournament Title is just icing on an already delicious “cake”. 😎

    Rainbow Wahine Softball Blog 05/12/2010:

    Wednesday, May 12, 2010

    The Rainbow Wahine softball team had a good day today at the 2010 WAC softball banquet! After a pleasant lunch at the Danny Villanueva Victory Club (which was overlooking the NMSU football stadium), Hawai`i players earned several honors. First the WAC Hitters and Pitchers of the Week were recognized. UH’s Kelly Majam (2), Katie Grimes, Jessica Iwata, Kaia Parnaby, and Stephanie Ricketts (3) all received certificates for their recognition. The ‘Bows swept the WAC’s major awards with head coach Bob Coolen named Coach of the Year; centerfielder Kelly Majam was selected Freshman of the Year; sophomore Stephanie Ricketts earned Pitcher of the Year honors; and freshman shortstop Jessica Iwata was voted Player of the Year. UH also had a conference-high six players voted to the all-WAC teams. Majam, Ricketts and Iwata all earned first team honors along with juniors Melissa Gonzalez (third base) and Jenna Gonzalez (designated player). Senior first baseman, Amanda Tauali`i was the lone UH player on the second team.

    After the banquet, the team returned to the hotel for awhile before heading back to the NMSU softball complex for an hour-long practice in the batting cages and on the adjacent practice field. With practice over, the vans were packed up and returned to the hotel where some had finals to take and others who are finished either went back to the field to watch the NMSU vs. Boise State game, to the mall, or to dinner. The team is adjusting to the time and hopefully will get a good night’s sleep for their opening game of the tournament tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m against San Jose State, who defeated Louisiana Tech today, 6-5.

    Midnight Ohana will be back this coming season.

    He mentioned this on tonight’s special Call the Coach Show.

    Actually, he put it out for a vote with the audience that were there if they want to have a Midnight Ohana. Unaminously, the fans said yes. So he said okay!

  195. chawan_cut May 12, 2010 8:55 pm

    went to the CTC with Coach Gib tonight. decent crowd as we had to stand (although i’ve never been to one at that location before so i can’t compare.) talked about the incoming players with BC and the returnees. it sounds like for sure amis, hiram and kurtz will be back. not sure yet on williams as he was given certain things to do these last 50 days by coach to see how he’d respond. questions from the crowd and callers were in regards to other possible recruits(which he can’t respond to, duh! why even ask if you know that!). possible future opponents, of which, he named illinois. he said every position is open in the fall. he was honest with the incoming freshmen, transfers that the guys who show up to play will play. he’s a funny guy too. lots of jokes that made the crowd laugh. nothing definite yet for his future assistants except that one is in town this weekend for an interview. it sounds pretty sure that he’ll keep on ganot. also nothing definite on his style of offense and defense except he kept mentioning about nba styles of pick and roll and more quick offense. he hasn’t seen much of his family but they’re all excited to be coming here. one good question by a caller was about if this was a stepping stone job and he responded by saying that this job just felt right. he has no plans of leaving. he wants his family to grow up here and experience hawaii as he did as a child. some questions came up about President Obama and if he’d invite him to a game or to a pick up game of one on one since they’re both buff alums. another guy asked about oregon st since President Obama’s brother in law is a coach. all of which he responded with sure, if he’s in town, why not?
    i’m sure others of you listened and will fill in where i missed. all in all there was a general excitement in and over the air about what these new recruits and the coach can bring.
    i’ll be there no matter what, but can’t wait to see what they show at Midnight/Twilight Ohana (which will be back!)!.

    through the recommendation of my greek friend, diogenes sinope, we went to fook yuen tonight. and its true the food rocks asi in rock salt plum.

    the boss, #2, and i had the following:

    live maine lobster with black bean sauce
    szechuan jumbo shrimps
    seafood combination noodles
    live maine lobster with ginger/onion sauce

    oh yah, the live maine lobsters are on special at 10.99 each with order of one entree.

    7:30 AM HAWAII TIME 05/13/2010.

    Best case scenario:
    If the Wahine win, their next game is on Friday (05/14/10) 10am HAWAII TIME against the winner of the Fresno State and Boise State game.

    Worst case scenario:
    If the Wahine lose to San Jose State at 7:30am HST, they play New Mexico State at 12:30pm HST on Thursday (same day) 05/13/2010. If they are in this scenario, they MUST win to play on Friday at 12pm HST and then again at 3pm HST to stay alive until Saturday.

    If the Wahine lose a second time, den pau and onto a LONG wait until the selection show on Sunday and I urge you all to contact local Hawaii authorites ASAP to Pearl City, HI to my residence as there will be a foul odor eminating from my room in the days following the weekend….

    Fook Yuen’s lunch buffet doesn’t include the lobster. You have to order a lobster & another dish off the menu to get the $10.99 price. The lunch buffet has other dishes. Pig’s feet for one – Chinese-style. I’ve never eaten the buffet, but it is very popular. I get to eat lobster with my Mom & Uncle Walter when they win a pot at bowling in the morning.
