Happy new year

Was it really a year ago today we were in New Orleans, recovering from Hurricane-concoction-induced headaches and cursing the 14s we kept receiving from the Harrah’s blackjack dealers?

* * *

I remember during a Sugar Bowl pep rally when a coach’s wife said JJ told the staff he was taking the SMU job. And being the fine reporter that I am, saying, “No way. He’s not going anywhere.” Which means I’m worse at poker than at blackjack.

* * *

The football coaches are gearing up for Monday, when they are permitted to make home visits. They’re going to do the full-court press on the Las Vegas prospects first, then visit the Long Beach Poly players. I’m told the Vegas guys are safe, and that Poly’s George Daily-Lyles is a firm commit. But UCLA is making a press on Poly defensive end Iuta Tepa. That could get interesting.

* * *

Alex Gerke might be on the move again. Last week, he accepted a coaching job at Utah State. Now, according to the word on the street, he’s interviewing for the o-line coach’s job at Utah. He’s a Utah grad so the move makes sense.

* * *

Happy birthday to my BFF, Christie, who only reads the blog when she’s mentioned. Or as she pointed out: “This will be the fourth time I’ll be reading your blog.” But who’s counting? So, happy birthday, Christie. (That’s two mentions in one post. But who’s counting?)

    go to sleep Stephen!

  2. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 1:52 am

    what a difference a year makes, huh?
    i didn’t have any clue who any of you were a year ago, except for one person. and now i know too many of you… haha. nah, nah. joke.
    hope 2009 is better than 2008!

  3. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 1:55 am

    i guess i’m the only one here.
    i don’t know how my neighbors can burn so much stuff. maybe i should ask them to hook me up next year. my brother and i had a measly celebration compared to theirs. but at least they let us watch. they string up a rope between the light pole and sidewalk tree and string up the firecracker strings 3 at a time.
    the other neighbor stocks up on the sky stuff.
    my dogs somehow made it through the night. although we have a couple of wet spots on the carpet now.

  4. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 1:57 am

    Wow, 4 in a row.
    i guess everyone is all pop’d out or pooped out. hope nalani and james are a-O-K up on the chinese hill above kalihi. its pretty cool to be up there as the night goes on and you see kalihi and downtown disappear in a layer of smoke.

  5. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 1:57 am

    i could write my own novel here its so empty.
    once upon a time there was a guy named chawan….
    not much to tell.
    the end.

  6. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 1:58 am

    ok, i’m going to stop now, or i’ll have everyone bashing me in the morning when they wake up.

    Happy New Year!

  7. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 1:59 am

    oh yeah, forgot to end with

  9. ai-ee-soos January 1, 2009 2:09 am

    Optimistic for 2009.

    UH 7-6, with a Hawaii Bowl invite.

    opponent: 7th place PAC 10, or at-large.

    How’s this for a New Year’s wish:

    Hawaii 7-6 vs. SMU 6-6. 32k-35k crowd.

    Happy New Year.

  10. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 2:11 am

    ok, early 2009 question for you all

    btw, here’s a quiz for you.

    what is this decade called? i have no clue. on the radio they say….
    and now….
    what will they say in the next decade?
    and now?

    its not the teens or twenties or seventies. its the single-digits? this has been bugging me for awhile. i figure we have some smart and wise people here that could help out.

  11. 99club January 1, 2009 2:13 am

    Happy New Year Tsaikos!

    Hope everyone had a safe evening. Drink lots ‘o water for that headache. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope we get those recruits! I was reading about how Florida Atlantic’s coach Howard Schnellenberger drew a line across the middle of Florida on a map and made sure to get every player south of that line when he was at Miami. Every time I see star players from Hawaii playing on the mainland I wonder “what if…”.

    Happy birthday Christie! I guess you weren’t Daddies little deduction right away, were you? j/k.

  12. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 2:13 am

    oh yes, happy birthday to you New Year’s babies!!!

    First, mahalo for all your videos. The mainland Tsaikos really appreciate it!

    As to your question: I think we’re in the ’20-ahts’ since I’ve hear the first decade of the 20th century referred to that way.


    I predict 9-4 overall, 6-2 in the WAC and we’ll be co-champs. But that’s only if we have less than 10 personal fouls for the year.

  15. 99club January 1, 2009 2:32 am


  16. 99club January 1, 2009 2:37 am

    Good morning Brew! You’re either up really early or up really late!

  17. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 5:58 am

    Good morning Tsaikos everywhere, and Happy New Year to you all.

    I’m not going to make a prediction about this coming season. I am watching closely Mr. Gerke’s moves and direction, if he gets the Utah oline job and all. That will tell me alot about us, on a coupla levels.

  18. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 5:59 am

    I mean, it will tell me alot about what another school’s coaches think of our staff.

  19. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 6:05 am

    interesting what the other paper says about what is exciting and intriguing about 09 in Hawaii. UH Football was not mentioned. Jim Donovan is mentioned.

  20. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 6:13 am

    I wonder if the coaches going tell Las Vegas recruits that Las Vegas is the 9th island? that we’re coming in force 9/19/09?

  21. addahknowjoe January 1, 2009 6:21 am

    Aloha 99club! The happiest of New Years to you!

    Sports and I just got back from an incredible fireworks display out at the seeded lands of Kapolei.

    As Kekoa put it, it all began at Halloween and culminated with last nights aerial onslaught!


    Big Mahalo’s to our host, the Kekoa’s and their wonderful neighbors. That block party was rockin!

    I going sleep!

    Happy New Year everyone!

  22. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 6:39 am

    brett leonard is coming. his last coach said he was always looking at the second level, top flight this and that, and he wuz coached by J Slater too, all pro.

  23. Pomai January 1, 2009 6:49 am

    bighilofan2 if you read between the lines like I am, it seems that Mr. Gerke just wanted out of here, now why is another story.

  24. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 1, 2009 6:55 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    Stephen- I guess if the coach’s wife knew about JJ’s departure before the game, then the players did too and thus the long faces on the sidelines and lack of “We Believe” attitude that carried them through the rest of the year.

    I’m DEFINITELY an old fuddy duddy. I just wanted the smoke and noise to stop so I could go to bed. The next milestone will be when my hearing is shot and the noise doesn’t bother me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. lava January 1, 2009 6:58 am

    Happy New Year.

    We could speculate all day about Gerke, but why? He’s gone, and that’s enough for me. I don’t know why, but if the coaches thought we should know more they would have told us. I am more interested in hearing about his replacement.

  26. Pomai January 1, 2009 7:06 am

    Just read ferd’s write up on the PRO Bowl, seem’s to me that when the nfl comes calling again because it has gone down the tube again, that HAWAII should tell them that “yeah we can save it again but this time it’s going to cost you”.

  27. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 7:09 am

    Happy new year my friends!

    I am reading between the lines. There were other things going on. And when the fizz is gone outta the soda bottle, better to start with a new bottle. You know the Bolla story? I just don’t want to go through another whole season when the writing is on the wall for pragmatists to see.

    but like Pride said, which is also true, fans gotta be patient.

    jmo. so what does Coach Cav coach? And what wuz the final score against Pitt? 3-0? There you go. a modern day Nostradamus. ๐Ÿ˜€

    i ain’t for changing the assts. I’m for a noisemakah, change their heads!. boomshakalakahboom kinda guyz, who ain’t afraid of the color/gender lines and go crashing thru it, like Gerke, but with a little more stiff arming when the habut comes up. one on one chro down kinda guyz. no witnesses. no bruises. ๐Ÿ˜€ winning on Saturdayz. ๐Ÿ˜€ go church on Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€ scrap on Monday. ๐Ÿ˜€ das da kine coaches I like. ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 7:14 am

    Hiya lava.

    remember the kid Sione last year? his friend Daniel Iopa saw what we did and committed himself this past year. his grades real good, his SAT ACT real good, got picked to play in tomorrow’s Samoa Bowl. The little we did for Sione had positive ramifications this past year. Daniel get offers to play college. He gotta wait to LOI day but on behalf of him, thank you.

  29. kymrykauai January 1, 2009 7:40 am

    Happy new year everyone!
    I made a resolution to lose a specific number of extra pounds I somehow added on in 2008 and to keep fit this year by sticking with a healthier lifestyle. Unfortunately its only a few hours into the new year and the leftover ham and pineapple upside down cake from last nights dinner jumped out of the fridge at me when I opened it up to get cream for my coffee. Its going to be a long year I think.I have about zero willpower. Tsai.

    That was discouraging to read JJ told everyone he was leaving before the game last year…as lizk said its no wonder they all had the long faces and more. He should have waited.

    Happy new year!

  30. wafan January 1, 2009 7:50 am

    A happy new 2009 morning to everyone!

  31. MauiSlugbug January 1, 2009 8:03 am

    One year ago I woke up in my hotel room in New Orleans with a bad hangover and stomach issues from eating too much spicy Cajun food…it seems like it happened so long time ago. When the Sugar Bowl teams were announced, I told my wife, “I wish we could be in New Orleans for the game.” My wife said, “Why not? Something like this may never happen again in your lifetime.” Every once in awhile I’ll look at the photos that I took in New Orleans and have mixed feelings of happiness and sadness. I smile when I think about Bourbon Street, the pep rallies and the excitement leading up to the game. Yet, I wonder if UH will ever have another chance to experience the spotlight of playing in a major bowl game. I hope it happens again.

  32. Justin January 1, 2009 8:03 am

    I hope all of our recruits honor their verbals. Are the coaches still going after Keenan Graham?

  33. mano1 January 1, 2009 8:10 am

    Happy New Year all and best wishes in 2009. ST-thanks for all the great stories and news during 2008….looking forward to the rest of 2009. Go Coach Mac and all the Warrior Coaches….go get them recruits and take us back to the top of the WAC again.

  34. Da Punchbowl Kid January 1, 2009 8:30 am

    Happy New Year! May God bless us one and all in the coming year.

    Here’s my first dumb question for 2009. Which Bowl will likely decide who’s number 1?

  35. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 8:31 am

    who to cheer for?
    Michigan St crybabies? or Georgia???
    tough choice.
    can both teams lose?

  36. Kekoa (iPhone) January 1, 2009 8:33 am

  37. TOM January 1, 2009 8:33 am


    (diet) I have about zero willpower

    The only thing that tempts me is temptation!

    Go out and recruit!!

    Happy New Year one and all!

  38. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 8:43 am

    maybe its just me.

    a year ago I wuz in NoLa, waiting in anticipation for the big game, not knowing that most of the coaches and players already knew our HC JJ was already planning to dig out. and that bugga kept smiling at me as I kept getting back in line and buying another of the eventual 5 books I bought and he autopgraphed.

    and i promised myself later in January that that feeling of being El Stupido was not going to happen to me again.

    and so here I am, a year later, grateful that remaining coaches and players rallied around Coach McMackin. And that he, in so short a time, gathered some more coaches around him for the first time, got a recruit class together, made some important and correct decisions about players and personnel, and in hindsight he probably wishes he made some other decisions too, but thats life.

    and so here I am, looking forward to this coming season. And I see that the scouting links think we’re in the top 50 nationwide in recruiting, verbals that is. Top of the WAC,in fact. So keep up the good work, Coach. Go get those recruits. And after you get them, make sure your coaches cover your behind. Get used to fighting, and winning, the big fights.

    and so here I am, wishing Coach McMackin a Happy and Prosperous New Year. while others may watch the Parade, I’m watching Fball, all day, except when I’m starting on that first resolution today. And thinking to myself, so far, so good. McMackin don’t make promises lightly. And he tries to keep his word. Thank you for that, Coach! Now go kick sum arse!

    I want to wish you all nothing but the best in 2009!

    To Coach Mack,

    ENDURE!!! ENDURE!!! ENDURE!!!! IMPROVE!!! IMPROVE!!! IMPROVE!!! Coach, you will have your work cut out for you even more with a young defense and a somewhat “experienced” offense, but not by a large margin either.


    To Coach Bolla,


    To Coach Nash,

    Now the real work begins with Boise State this Saturday. Keep the boys “working hard, working smart, and working together”.

    To Coach Trapasso and Coach Wilton,

    Thin ice guys… thinner than the ice on the surface of Wrigley Field during the NHL’s 2009 Winter Classic. Bolla, you TOO, or should I say… YOU ESPECIALLY!

    To Coach Coolen,

    Keep up the good work, you are appreciated by more than you know!

    To Coach Shoji,

    Battle after battle and season after season the legacy continues. Keep the Final Four dream alive!!!

    Youโ€™re right โ€“ NY resolutions are really hard to keep and fulfill (ie – jm2009+366). Heck, I donโ€™t really try anymore… but, that’s me. Regarding your particular one KymryKauaiโ€ฆ. First of all – Ha! โ€œExtra poundsโ€ on you? Yeah, right โ€“ compared to a bean pole! (And Iโ€™ve never even met you! ๐Ÿ˜€ )

    My suggestion to you about feeling and looking thinner and fit isโ€ฆ to hang around with jovial, more well-rounded, fully-accomplished, broadly-entertaining, larger-than-life, big-hearted folksโ€ฆ. Say, just like the TSAIKOS!!! – Yeahโ€ฆ thatโ€™s the ticket! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜†


  58. brew808 January 1, 2009 10:16 am

    DPK – My 2(009) cents….

    Ronnie knows just about everything … but (excuse me for saying) she may have overlooked the importance of the International Bowl (on Sat. Jan. 03) featuring Buffalo (8-5) and Connecticut (7-5), AND the critically important GMAC Bowl (on Tues. Jan. 06) featuring #22 Ball State (12-1) and Tulsa (10-3). These key games lead up to the BCS Championship game on Thursday, Jan. 08. If they weren’t so important, why wouldn’t they have been scheduled earlier in the Bowl season? Obviously, they represent the keystones in determining the eventual National Champion of CFB! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜€

  59. FloridaTed January 1, 2009 10:20 am

    HAPPY NEW YEAR AGAIN !! Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    In the new year the only way is up, it is hard to imagine it would be worse than the last.

    ST, your post above opened old wounds with me. Why couldn’t JJ keep his mouth shut until after the game? That is the one beef I still have with him, that was completely irresponsible. Off course the players were deflated,when they needed their full fighting spirit to stay in the game. I can understand his leaving, but never the timing of his announcement and if he tells the staff, you betcha the players knew.

    Let’s hope our coaches will find the golden recruiting pot and get us some serious talent, open all competition in spring, with a full training plan in place and we’ll have a great year. The schedule is very managable, unlike this years murderers row.

    My prediction for 2009, 10 – 3 or better.

    Now, everybody, go out and have a great year.

  60. brew808 January 1, 2009 10:20 am

    ๐Ÿ˜ณ Sorry for not closing my bold tag. Thus the 2009 year begins with the (arguably) the first of many errors. But, que sera, sera…. whatevers… no hu-hu… wherever the wind blows and the water flows…. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Dang…took me a loooong while to go through 1200+ posts. Wow, laulau! Unreal! Nuthin’s impossible for the Ohana. Great to see some former lurkers posting and some long lost bloggers posting again…hadn’t seen 22London in awhile…imagine being that far away!

    FL Ted-
    The only break I’d give JJ on that one is if he believed the Dallas/SMU community couldn’t keep his move under wraps before Sugar Bowl game time.

    Great channel surfing from the GA – Mich St. game…an outdoor hockey game at Wrigley field and a Mythbuster marathon. *tsai*

    Good morning to all and Happy New Year 2009

    got this from a friend this morning.

    **Two Wolves**

    **One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. **

    ** **

    **The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility,
    kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’**
    **The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his
    grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’**

    **The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.’**


    **Happy New Year**

    Happy New Year 99-!!! Let’s see, based on your nick, you have 96 bottles, or 4 cases, or 16 six-packs to go…. And if you lose count… then “you’re there”! ๐Ÿ˜†

    My 2(009) cents – “no breaks” warranted. SOB before, then, now. IMHO ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    Hey – both Capital and Gator contests are pretty interesting and competitive…. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜†

    Happy New Year! May God bless us one and all in the coming year.

    Hereโ€™s my first dumb question for 2009. Which Bowl will likely decide whoโ€™s number 1?

    DPK sorry to say none of them because the two teams who deserve to be playing for it aren’t playing each other.

    And God bless you, your family and all of the “TSAIKOS”

  71. brew808 January 1, 2009 11:06 am

    No worries al – there is only one al – No can duplicate. No can even get close to imitating…. ๐Ÿ˜€

    BG – You’re always so positive! Even when discussing your ‘puter problems! Thank you for being Tsaiko!!! Question – does your better (and that’s saying A LOT!!!) half ever lurk? Just wondering….

    HiFlyer – #66 partially explains all the voices I hear inside my otherwise empty head! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜†

    Sugar Bowl 2008:

    As soon as the Warriors entered the stadium, I turned to Mrs A-House and said, “somethings wrong”, look at how the players are entering the field”.

    On 1/3/08, I found out that JJ had told his staff just before the game that he was accetping the SMU job and would take anyone who wants to tag along. This information was “leaked” to the players in the locker room and reason for their lack of enthusiam entering the stadium.

    2009 Warrior prediction = 11 – 2 or better with being the WAC champs and another BCS bowl.

  73. brew808 January 1, 2009 11:08 am

    Pomai – Happy 2009! – So, who do you think belongs in the CFB Championship Game? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  74. Pomai January 1, 2009 11:12 am

    bigkonafan #27 I am not disagreeing with you but it seems that that kind of coaching doesn’t work with the kids of today, I know it worked with us guys but these kids today don’t respond very good to that type of coaching IMHO, why is that, I guess they are just a lot more mature than we where at that age.

  75. Pomai January 1, 2009 11:20 am

    Brew it’s pretty simple really, lets see you play 12 games and you win them all HMMMMM.

    I know that everyone will rant an rave but the two teams that did that, did exactly what was ask of them the beat everyone who was put in front of them, the team can only control one thing the win/lost column and to me that’s what counts, Soooo if Fla or Texas or any others want to play for the National title then win all your games, simple yeah!!!

  76. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 11:22 am

    anyone have T-mobile and have had issues with their connection last night and today?
    or maybe its just me.

  77. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc January 1, 2009 11:22 am

    Lost the post I was just working on for about 30 minutes. One of these days, I’ll figure out what it is I’m doing when that happens. It just shuddered and stuffered and flew off into the ether out towards Saturn The Planet.

    KAZZ: Did you see the answer to your post about the Aloha Stadium turf replacement?

    From yesterday’s post:

    Happy New Year everyone. Will have the details of the contest weโ€™re sponsoring up within the next 20 hours or so. It does involved attending home regular season games from January 2 through the end of baseball season – and saving your ticket stubs. Here are the scheduled games through next Monday night:

    Womenโ€™s Basketball: UH v.Pepperdine, 3 pm Friday, January 2; Pepperdine v Colorado, 3 pm Saturday January 3; Colorado, 5 pm, Sunday, January 4.

    They then go on the road: January 8 – Fresno; January 10 – San Jose State; January 12 – Boise State.

    Menโ€™s Basketball: Boise State, 7:05 pm Saturday, January 3; LaTech, 7:05, Monday, January 5.

    They then go on the road: Idaho, January 8; Boise State, January 10.

    Menโ€™s Volleyball: Outrigger Hotels Invitational, Thursday, January 8 – Saturday, January 10. More details next week.


    Only about 50% back to where I was before the Starbuck’s experience yesterday. I still cannot handle food so the smells from DrDocs breakfast really created some problems. He’d bought porkchops, okra and mustard greens for his traditional Southern New Year’s dinner last night, but I threatened him with serious harm if he even took out the frying pan. Today won’t be much better, but maybe I’ll go for another long walk while he cooks and eats it – assuming that he can clear out the smells before I get back.

    QUESTION: Although the team program states that #5 on the men’s basketball team is Lasha Parghalawa, I swear that both Jim Leahey and Bobby Curran pronounce his first name Sasha. Is this his nickname or are Ls pronounced like Ss in Tbilsi, Georgian Republic.

    If he can continue to be ever more consistent in his offensive moves, we will have a winning team. He actually looks as if he’s playing for fun and not just because it’s his job.

    Also, it’s nice to have 11 or 12 really good players who can move around on and off the bench with ease.

    Have a great day and, of course, 2009 – hope to see some of you at tomorrow’s 3 pm game. Seventy five – that’s 75 – fans in the Stan Sheriff Center is humiliating and embarassing to everyone in the Athletic Department – staff and students alike. Mr. Donovan, you have to step up to the plate on this one because it ain’t gonna get any better without a major intervention on your part. The student athletes in all sports deserve your support.

    Happy New Year A-House & ‘ohana!!! (Hi Midori!) –

    Do you ever watch the Jay Leno Show? Gilbert Gottfried is a regular and appears on sketches using the phrase “Son of a Bitch!”. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
    – ’nuff said…. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Hey – is it true that the city of Las Vegas has asked the feds for a $1B loan to cover all the winnings you, and the other Tsaikos are making in LV? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜†

  79. Pomai January 1, 2009 11:33 am

    Here’s a great idea for all of the fans who want a playoff – boycott all of the BCS bowl games, don’t buy the tickets, don’t go to the games, and don’t watch them on TV. A couple of years of that and the BcS would be gone, as the saying goes, “money talks and bullsh$t walks”

  80. BG January 1, 2009 11:35 am

    OK, 2009. Time to set some goals…

    1. 2009 Anniversary blog party – bigger and bettah…is that possible?
    2. Learn the Ha’a by the UNLV game
    3. Figure out the seating arrangements for the Tsaiko section at the UNLV game
    4. Appreciate. Enjoy. Embrace

    I’d be shocked if Moreno doesn’t come out from Georgia. Tape of that TD catch will be used by his agent in the future, for sure. (I know, I sound like Kalani sellin’ the Ponderosa Pines lots)

  82. Jason January 1, 2009 11:44 am

    Happy new year, everyone!

    chawan_cut: You know, I’ve always wondered about the decade thing, too. And my T-Mobile signal was small kine weak yesterday, with a couple busy signals, but it worked when I went to the window. Now it’s fine, I have five bars instead of two in my bedroom.

    WassupDoc: I’ve heard people say it’s a nickname, I’ve heard people say the L is pronounced like an S. Either way, according to the UH press releases, you pronounce it Sasha. I still heard a couple kids yell out “Lasha!” during the Pepperdine game.

  90. Hilo Rain January 1, 2009 12:01 pm

    It bothered me that JJ did not want the team to practice in the SuperDome and, during the course of the game, he seemed to detach himself from the team, remaining aloof and looking like he couldn’t wait for the game to end. Also, he looked like he wasn’t spending the usual anount of time discussing things with Colt as he usually does. In other words, it seemed like he really didn’t care and had the demeanor of a
    “short timer.” Please be aware that I was in Hilo and I made these assumptions from the occasional TV shots of the sideline. Someone, please tell me my conclusions are wrong or, for that matter, are correct.

  91. 99club January 1, 2009 12:04 pm

    Little Johnny: Dad, the Rose Bowl is between the Big-10 champs and the Pacific-10 champs! The best of 20 teams from the midwest and the Pacific coast!

    Dad: Actually, Johnny, the Big-10 has 11 teams, and two teams in the Pac-10 are from a state that is a landlocked desert.

    Little Johnny: That’s just like I thought, Dad. Everything about the BCS is bogus!

  92. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:04 pm

    bigkonafan: re #45.

    So far, just rumors.

    But, I NOT getting my hopes up, as any transfer

    must sit out one year. In this case, the player

    can’t compete until Fall 2010.

    So, until it happens, I’ll stay “loose”.

  99. 99club January 1, 2009 12:20 pm

    HNY bighilofan2. Yes, I remember Sione. I heard he had a great year in JUCO making lots of tackles. I’m sure he played himself into shape. If he can do that year round he should make the jump. haven’t heard of Daniel Iopa, but his sounds like a great story.

  103. MeiLing January 1, 2009 12:24 pm


    Hope your tummy feels better.

    Gotta tear myself away from football games to get over to my Mom’s to make jai. Sorta strange to miss most of the Rose Parade. I used to get up & watch the Rose Parade on a couple of stations waiting for football games to start. At least I got to see the All Hawaii band marching in this parade.

    K, have a wonderful day erryone! Happy New Year!

  104. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:27 pm

    Happy new Year to Peaches too!

    Or if there is such a guy, the UH coaches don’t know about him.

  111. JaM January 1, 2009 12:33 pm

    Oops bir is Brie!

  112. ai-ee-soos January 1, 2009 12:34 pm

    ST: re #105.

    One of the rumors was started right here on this blog,

    by a “regular”.

    There’s another rumor started elsewhere.

    Like I stated in #98, they are just rumors.

  113. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:35 pm

    JaM has another daughter? And I thought Brie was Number_1! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Since she’s “coming home”… any chance that she’ll be attending UH and could be the “mystery transfer” that ST (See #105) and others alluded to….? Pretty intriguing huh? …. certainly deep… ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ™„

  114. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 12:35 pm

    Hey, I’m behind on my birthday wishes because my director of birthday wishes โ€” Midori7 โ€” is in Vegas, baby!

  115. Jason January 1, 2009 12:36 pm

    Hard to get a second date if there wasn’t a first date to begin with.

  116. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:38 pm

    Wow….. not “daughter #1″…. and from Brie to “Bir”…. Someone is not off to a good start for 2009! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  117. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:42 pm

    Jason – When did this supposedly happen? What date was it? ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  118. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 12:43 pm

    Don’t worry about hurting Esme’s feelings.
    Esme’s emotions, like her presence here, are fleeting.
    She’ll understand you wanting to date others.
    Meanwhile, where’s the darn pix?

  119. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 12:45 pm

    Jason won two tickets to UH hoops.
    The second seat, according to TV viewers, was occupied by someone who was not Al or Esme.

  120. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:45 pm

    Isn’t Esme a BIG… HUGE TV star now, and really doesn’t have to time to visit this lil’ ol’ blog called The Warrior Beat anymore??? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  121. 99club January 1, 2009 12:47 pm

    Hey..both of the kids are number 1s..that’s why both are spoiled!

    But it is okay with them…I mix names up all the time…

  127. Da Punchbowl Kid January 1, 2009 12:57 pm

    Pomai and Brew,

    Thanks for the posts regarding the Bowl playoff for number 1. Frankly, I don’t give a rat’s patootie about the BCS system, I just thought if there was a “so called ” number 1 playoff today, I’d watch. Florida and OK should be a good game though.

    Who do you guys think should be playing for number 1?

  128. brew808 January 1, 2009 12:57 pm

    ๐Ÿ˜ณ Oops… I may have scared off JaM! I tend to do that a lot! (Note: another lesson for Jason)

    I was only trying to share some advice. See, I have lots of experience in that area. You develop the “complex”, problems begin in school, can’t get into any preschool or day-care, then later, you get move to the back, then the front row of seats, then to the corner, the principal’s office, the school counselor, then the professional psychologists, then sent out-of-state, then off-planet to Mars…. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ™„

  129. JaM January 1, 2009 12:58 pm

    She might be the mystery transfer…except must apply first..looking at grad school.

  130. Koa-mahu January 1, 2009 12:59 pm

    Brew808..Nope did not scare me off!

    Just busy..trying to leave house to take lunch to my mother…but she ate…I’m slow….

    I guess 2009 is starting bad for me…

    That’s why new years resolution is to BELIEVE..

    I believe I will do better…

    I believe I will not make as many mistakes…


    That way will not fail…on any of my new years resolutions!

  133. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:03 pm

    Hard to get a second date if there wasnโ€™t a first date to begin with.

    Jason you got to ask, it just doesn’t happen…talk to your fadda Al, he may have a few lines for you..just hope it isn’t outdated, its been a while for him…

  137. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 1:14 pm

    So, which picture shows up first โ€” Jason’s date’s or Brew’s?

  138. 99club January 1, 2009 1:16 pm

    The Rose Bowl Game presented by Citi. Shouldn’t that be “presented by USA” considering the bailout? Doesn’t it feel great when our tax dollars are sponsoring the BCS? Really, I’m not bitter.

  139. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 1:21 pm

    OK, my BWF (best wife forever) wants me to actually do something this year, so I’m going to move bills from the right side of the table to the left. Be back in a bit.

  140. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 1:23 pm

    By the way, doesn’t Citi handle the Circuit City credit cards? I was late on a payment last month, and they threatened me a bad-credit rating. And I’m thinking: “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.”

  141. BG January 1, 2009 1:25 pm

    Hold up! I got my “regular” braddah’s back. If he says there’s a high profile transfer, then there is! No question about it.. I won’t take a take a questionable left handed shot at the coaches by saying, “No one knows everything.” But, if a full blooded Tsaiko comes on the blog and makes a bold statement, I’ll believe it until proven wrong. That’s the value of the WB. Stuff appears here that no one else knows about.

    Oh, btw, I don’t know who it is…but, like everyone, I have a guess.

  142. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:28 pm

    Huh….? Re: pictures – Brew’s “date”??? Now that would be something!

    Besides – it’s not my fault if the camera(s) always breaks (or gets broken… oh, that one might be my fault… ๐Ÿ˜ˆ )

    Why does one even patronize Circuit City…. a doomed, Chapter 11 Co? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜•

  143. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:33 pm

    Ehh… but if the blog Host denies that rumor, then whom do you believe, the Tsaiko or the big-forehead guy (note: the vague ID)? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  144. 99club January 1, 2009 1:34 pm

    The Circuit City here in San Angelo closed about 6 months ago. The only way to get to their location was via a one-way road that went by the Best Buy store first. Location, location, location.

  145. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:36 pm

    Hey 99– Is it lamb (and beer) grinds-time yet? That (for entertainment purposes only) 10 point spread looks more likely now….Pac-10 is looking solid now. I wonder if this changes any potential recruit’s decision process… ๐Ÿ˜€

    So, which picture shows up first โ€” Jasonโ€™s dateโ€™s or Brewโ€™s?

    ST — we have brew’s, but it’s classified the same as homey’s arm was…but for you… ๐Ÿ™‚

    On the other hand, if anyone could get Jason’s date pix, it would be brew808 (bus, SSC, and KFC security video, K5, spy satellite, etc). … ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜†

    So which one shows up first? ๐Ÿ™„

  147. BG January 1, 2009 1:37 pm

    But Brew, ST clarified to say that the coaches know nothing about it…not that it wasn’t true. Besides, I remember very clearly who posted that info.

  148. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:38 pm

    Most Circuit City’s in the SF-Bay Area also closed…. (Oh- so I’m told… ๐Ÿ˜€ )…. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  149. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:42 pm

    BG – and so do I (I think…). But … doesn’t he have to use a alias because of content in some of his past posts….??? ๐Ÿ˜†

  150. brew808 January 1, 2009 1:43 pm

    My girl has been on the phone with her BGFF for the last hour. About 20 minutes ago I heard an “oh, no!” from the kitchen, but with assurances that everything (the lamb) was OK. BTW, the brews are as pau as the Nittany Lions. Dang.

    Oh, this halftime is kind of sickening, with this foursome of so-called experts trying to keep the audience engaged in their broadcast….. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  162. Ralph January 1, 2009 1:59 pm

    pollsters and the BCS people really like the big 10…OSU in the last two championships with Illinois to the rose bowl last year..each team getting whipped badly….I hope Texas stomps OSU this year so boise’s lost to tcu wouldn’t have negated a rationale in having them play Texas instead of OSU with 2 losses. Got to push for the little guy which UH belongs to…

  164. brew808 January 1, 2009 2:01 pm

    Eh Ralph – did you ever figure out about “happy faces”? It is colon ) or colon D. Really, I recommend you try “cutting and pasting” something into your next post. A little practice and you can be a blogging fool like some peeps we know. Oh wait… some of you may think that (me?) is a problem….. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Eh, Brew, the person I’m thinking of only uses his blog name…but, I’m letting it fly cuz I think he’s sleeping (yet). However, being a true blue blogger, you sound like you have the answer surrounded. ๐Ÿ˜€

  169. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 2:07 pm

    wow, i actually know/have something brew doesn’t?
    like i said, i’ll keep the jason picture secret for now…

    hey thanks it works…Brew I actually googled smiley to see all the characters available

  172. brew808 January 1, 2009 2:12 pm

    You know… I really do empathize with Jason. We’re having a bunch of fun teasing him. But some things really should be off-limits!

    Now as for Chawan_Cut!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜€

  173. Garret January 1, 2009 2:14 pm

    Looks like the bowl game records will not be that favorable for the WAC as compared to the other Western conferences. This is not good when people (like us) argue for respect for the WAC next season.

    WAC: 1-4 (only win was from a team from Louisiana)
    Pac-10: 5-0
    MWC: 2-2 with Utah still to play. Their only 2 bowl wins are against WAC teams. Having the MWC beat Boise State and Fresno State is really bad, since they and UH are probably the 3 best-known WAC football schools.

    Back to my report…got to turn it in by tonight if my company wants to get paid soon.

  174. brew808 January 1, 2009 2:15 pm

    Gold star for Ralph! I still urge you to try “cut & paste”. That way, you can copy my line of faces, comment/re-post someone’s previous comment, etc. ๐Ÿ˜€

  175. Pomai January 1, 2009 2:15 pm

    DPK I know no one thinks like me (thank God) but it seems to me that the two undefeated team in Division 1 should be playing for the national title as #1. I can’t stand the BcS.

    I myself think that there needs to be a 11+1 (at large) playoff, win your conference an your in the playoff. And to make it fun set something up to have a national fan base pick the at large team.

  176. brew808 January 1, 2009 2:16 pm

    Happy New Year Garret!!! I wonder if your report will include any “Post-It” notes. ๐Ÿ˜†

  177. brew808 January 1, 2009 2:18 pm

  178. Garret January 1, 2009 2:19 pm

    Before I forget–Lori just got home and she was able to buy ahi sashimi for $8.99 per pound! That will add to our New Year’s dinner:

    ahi sashimi
    lau lau
    two kinds of kamaboko
    fish cake soup (first year I won’t have ozoni)

    Ben and Jerry’s ice cream–for those near a Ralph’s grocery store, Ralph’s is selling all Ben and Jerry’s pints of ice cream for $3…and there is a printable $3 coupon available from Ben and Jerry’s which makes the ice cream free!

  179. Pomai January 1, 2009 2:20 pm

    I think I will enjoy myself and watch UH kick Arizona’s butt again

  181. Garret January 1, 2009 2:22 pm


    Happy New Year to you too! No post-it notes for me yet…I guess she’ll have to do it at school.

    Today was peaceful since my kids had a friend over for a playdate downstairs and they left me alone to work all morning. I’ve really got to go now.

    BTW – Acne, for someone approaching the 1/2 century mark might signal a serious problem for Dove soap…. IMHO ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    No. 196 was in response to No. 193 not No. 195.

  199. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 3:33 pm

    As for No. 190, Terry Brennan yesterday said that Colt was told he would compete for the No. 2 job in 2009. Campbell is entering his walk year.

  200. Stephen Tsai January 1, 2009 3:34 pm

    Then again, No. 4 (Favre) apparently is available, at least in the opinion of running back Thomas Jones.

  201. FloridaTed January 1, 2009 3:36 pm

    Looking at USC destroying Penn St, the Sugar Bowl is not so implausible.

    Every year there seem to be 5 or 6 teams that are so much better than even the rest of the top 25, that it seems like they’re in a different league.

    How much has the huge lay-off between last game and bowl to do with Penn States miserable performance? Are they really that much worse than USC? I don’t think so.

    I always take Bowl results with a big grain of salt.

    Utah will be blasted also, does that make them a bad team, heck no, Alabama is just one of the 5 or 6 super teams, that’s all.

  202. brew808 January 1, 2009 3:38 pm

    Okay – I am concerned about whitey. Nothing since his gallant record post effort initiated by him a couple of days ago. So, what’s the deal?

    – Is he lost on the “dark-side”?
    – In lock-up?
    – Napping on the golf course like Rip Van Winkle? (That was his last destination…)
    – mechanical problems on the space-craft that kid-napped him?
    – Still celebrating his effort and the New Year with Remy & family?

    … just wondering. ๐Ÿ™„

    Okay – I’m sorry for hogging the blog. I’ll act in advance of all the complaints that likely have been flooding ST’s email box, and declare a Timeout for brew. Laters…. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜†

  203. 99club January 1, 2009 3:41 pm

    So Brew, how’s that 10 pts lookin’ right about now? ๐Ÿ™‚

  204. FloridaTed January 1, 2009 3:41 pm

    Knowing Colt he will be their Nr. 2 next year and from there, just one play away……

    I think Campbell is near his peak already as a QB, he has seemingly regressed over the season, while the great ones get better. We’ll see.

  205. BG January 1, 2009 3:41 pm

    Wow! Lotta folks still sleeping?!!

  206. Kekoa January 1, 2009 3:45 pm

    BG ~ Mahalo my blogging buddy back-up.

    Yes, I’ll stand by my information. If I’m wrong, I’ll be the first to admit it.

    Hey!…what’s the big deal anyway? It’s not like I’m predicticting the 2nd coming of Christ! With some of the ‘stuff’ that’s tossed around this blog, I normally just ๐Ÿ™„ my eyes and log off. The significance of this transfer will impact one person in a way that nobody else could imagine.

    It’s not often that I make a serious statement as bold as this. Most of you know me as the rascal individual that likes to keep you entertained by “making poi and playing music” as one person noted.

    Those of you who really know me, understand that I skirt around getting too serious about the football content on this blog. Like me, I know that most of the men on this blog have either played, coached or administrated football. I’m not about to challenge anyone about their opinions concerning football plays or who should play what position.

    I believe there is only one person that is key in the negotiations on the UH staff. I just don’t want to embarrass anyone in case the whole deal falls thru. I only mentioned it because I support and hope it all works out for this young man. This could mean true redemption for this hard working youngster.

    Some of you talk about trying to keep our local players home all the time. Is that all it is? If it were true, this boy never would have gone away in the first place.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled BCS activities, while I continue to nurse my ‘hangover.’

    Happy New Year!

  207. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 3:45 pm

    howzit howzit.

    i hear you about being smuud. but when you’re pushing the team to the top, you gotta let team Tsaikos know whats going on in da udda planetary space.

    i wuz right there and i saw JJ look totally disinterested, after Ga scored the first time. i wuz fazzled, fizzled, and den i was feeling hoozd. dats why i say no more do i ever want to feel like I’m El Stupido. if I see sumtin dat looks outta line, i speak up. i definitely feel that Coach Mack and his OC and DC want to win. thats the good part and the best part of the equation at UH Football. our top guyz definitely want to win. and they are trying, no doubt about it.

    and more importantly, they don’t have the Bolla problem with their troops.

  208. FloridaTed January 1, 2009 3:47 pm

    At least a half more season under Colt’s belt and he will be ready. If he has another pre-season or better than last year, the skins fans will be clamoring for him even crazier than last season.

    As for Dove soap (TMI warning), when I was in Wisconsin this summer, my skin started to dry out like crazy one night, I couldn’t stop itching. Thankfully, the dorm gave a complimentary bottle of hand lotion, which I used to alleviate the itching. The next morning, I walked over to the nearest Walgreen’s to get a bar of Dove soap. I guess Dial is okay to use here in Hawaiโ€˜i, but not in Madison, WI. ๐Ÿ˜›

  238. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 5:46 pm

    2 excellent articles in today’s Haw Trib Herald that we all should consider. This summarizes the first.

    “Singletary swinging his firing ax freely” by Greg Beacham. No longer the interim Niners coach drops 2 more assts – OC Mike Martz and RB coach Tony Nathan. “my offensive philosophy is more of a trational one, more of a run to pass… hopefully you have a balance…” Singletary is still compiling a list of candidates for the job…. Now that Singletary is firmly running the club, he feels free to build the 49ers in his preferred imagte… and that hopefully includes a running game that can’t be stopped, even when defenses know its coming…
    “Since the players have to learn yet another offense in the off-season, Singltary knows he can’t wait long to get started. He plans to be in the office on New Year’s Day, winnowing his candidates at OC.
    “We gave to go fast this offseason…

    I don’t want a Band Aid. I don’t want a patch. I don’t want a compromise. That person is out there, and we’ll find him.

    Also, “There are teams that have been successful year in and year out, and are not going to go out of style,” he said.
    Singletary also said QB Shaun Hill will have to compete again for the AB job, sayihg “i think competition is the greatest thing in the world.”
    Singletary had a short shopping list for the offseason, topped by a strong pass rusher….”

    Quick, shoot a copy to Coach, xtra to Pride. ๐Ÿ˜€

  239. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 6:05 pm

    And here is another synopsis of a reason for Warrior faithful to be hopeful. In the Haw Tribune Herald today:

    “Once doggone awful, Falcons soaring high”
    by George Henry

    Falcons owner Arthur Blank couldn’t wait for the 2007 season to end.
    Michael Vick behaved and lied his way to federal prison… Bobby Petrino coach, quit for 08. GM Rich McKay removed…

    12 months later, Blank delighted in 2 obscure hires he made last January, Coach Mike Smith and GM Thomas Dimitroff, the two men most responsible for drafting QB Matt Ryan 3rd overall and for turning around a once pitiful franchise…

    we went through every bit of pain last year that an NFL owner or a franchise or a community of fans could imagine,” Blank said. “Thats my viewpoint. On the other hand, to see things come around this year as well as they have, its just a tribute to the men who are making these decisions.
    “That expression that things can go 180 degrees? They certainly have for us.” Its been a series of great decisions and a head coach who put together, in my opinion, just a great coaching staff.

    There you go. 2 blueprints of success. ๐Ÿ˜€ I has come true. 1 is a hope on the horizon for the 9er fans. bwahaaaahaaaaaaa ๐Ÿ˜€

    I get local bosses, we no work on New Years Day. I actually have the day off tomorrow also.

    1b sounds like what happened with June Jones…I hope our memories and appreciation are not too short-lived. We went from the most awful experiences to 12-0. Let’s count our blessings.

    I was saying that I’m not advocating a status quo. Actually, I wanted to thank you for being a driving force for Warrior improvement.

    IMUA UH Warriors!

  249. Ralph January 1, 2009 6:32 pm

    frank gore not bad…..he needs to be consistent and not a one year wonder than the niners will be good to go with the rb situation….now all they need is a qb and a few OL add ons and the offense will be set…need possession wr since singletary won’t be winging with a gunslinger

  250. Ralph January 1, 2009 6:34 pm

    cincy can’g run the ball against VT….now it makes me more upset that we gave the game away….VT is not that much better, could have beat both teams if we played both of them

  251. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 6:34 pm

    cincy losing to va tech 20-7.
    they’re not that good. we should’ve had em. dang it. oh well. new year. i’ll move on.

  252. Ralph January 1, 2009 6:38 pm

    watching VT runners go down the middle or on the fringe easily tells me the warriors did not have game speed compared to VT. I hope the juco transfers and the new recruits are ready to step up because two years of futility at rb needs to stop now….

  253. Stretch January 1, 2009 6:44 pm

    I am hoping that VT holds Cincinatti. NO SCORE!!!

    January 1st, 2009 at 3:04 pm
    Meโ€ฆ copying and pasting Ralphโ€™s postโ€ฆ. ( I have a Mac but that shouldnโ€™t make a differenceโ€ฆ.) – ???

    Brew I tried right clicking on your images and copied but when I pasted, nothing

    I have a theory about this. I think it is the blog software that interpretes the colon – character combinations and retrieves the smiley icon that you see in the posts. When the bogware is extra slow, you will see the emoticons appear moments after the text.

    Thus, if you drag your cursor over the smiley (and text) and paste, it will work because all the characters were copied. However, if you right-click on the icon itself, the copy might not be able to interprete the text from the icon or it is only copying one of the characters in the combo.

    SO, dragging across the smiley and copying should work on any computer.

    BTW, I have a little graphic of the smileys this blog will accept. It is on my main page (right side) as “Emoticons”, but click here for the smiley graphic.

  255. Stretch January 1, 2009 6:52 pm


  256. Stretch January 1, 2009 6:53 pm

    and I am not talking about Jason….. Cincinatti just got stopped at the goal line on 4th down.

  257. roysan16 January 1, 2009 6:56 pm

    Good Evening. And Happy New Year.

    My New Year’s wishes are that the Warriors brain trust, the Coach and staff, absorb this past season ending dose of humility, where all the criticisms about the team and the coaching surfaced in front of a national audience, and humbly go about at fixing what needs to be fixed. In an interview after the game, a contrite Coach Mack pledged that he’ll see to it. And I have faith he will. Yet my wishes go deeper than what needs to be fixed.

    My wish is that the Coach becomes a visionary. And take his best coach, Miano, and have him become the special team’s coach. On so many fronts this move would propagate, or reproduce, an area of the game that at one point in the future, hopefully, it would be so revered that this part of the game would become worrisome for the opposing teams. And hopefully also this part of the game would become infectious, especially in terms of spirit and pride, to other parts of the team. And to the youth of the state.

    Promoting this idea as Miano as special team’s coach I think is a perfect fit. First I look as Miano as a pied piper, who can sell the idea to the kids that it is an honor to be on the Hawaii special team’s unit. I think Miano can instill some pride into this unit, where we can someday see some excitement on kickoffs and punt returns and jaw breaking tackles on return defenses.

    We here so much about the reputations of linebacker university, Penn State and tail back university, USC. I want someday to here people referring to Hawaii as special teams university. I want the offense and defense to be our bread and butter and niches. But I think if starting somewhere first, especially with Miano and the special teams, I think this fevered pitch will carry over to the offense and defense.

    Selling this idea to the players and being a leader, I think Miano has the wherewithal to express to the players to do mock kickoffs, punting, punt return and field goal kicking in the off season. In fact, side by side with the seven on seven unit I like to see the special team’s becoming the kingpins on the field.

    Above all, I think Miano can throw the seeds in the air and in the future on playgrounds around the state this feverishness about Hawaii special team catches on with the youth. It would be a prideful moment one day if we see youngsters individually practicing their punting, kicking and return skills. And groups of kids doing mock kickoffs.

    But for this to happen it takes vision and a pied piper, two of which I think the Warriors already have.

  258. Jason January 1, 2009 6:57 pm

    SteveM is a THIEF! A thief, I tell you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Frank Gore is hardly a one-year wonder. He was a first round talent that dropped down due to injuries; I was ecstatic when we got him in the 3rd, cause I thought he could be our RB of the future. If we can get him consistent blocking up front, he’s as productive as any RB in the NFL.

    For the 49ers, it all starts with the offensive line. We need to revamp that thing.

  259. Koa-mahu January 1, 2009 7:04 pm

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO THE BEST GROUP, TSAIKOS!!!!!! you all are unbelievable, but when there are huge montains to climb and challenge, you as a team are unbeatable. had plenty negatives at beginning, but when the tsunami started it couldn’t be stopped till it broke the record. all of you deserve a standing ovation and with that bow my head to you in respect.

  262. chawan_cut January 1, 2009 7:22 pm

  263. Stretch January 1, 2009 7:27 pm

    i thought he/she was into jason
    i’ll avoid a bio or risk getting he/she too excited.

  266. whitey January 1, 2009 7:35 pm

    watch most of the USC game and am glad to see that a maui man won the defensive mvp. what impressed me with the game is the tackling, none of this dancing with the stars tackling. get down low and hit those legs and they go down (sometimes with owies). the warriors this year need to learn how to tackle like both USC and Penn St.

  267. whitey January 1, 2009 7:38 pm

    i got to catch up with the blog, but saw a statement from my grandson, stretch, saying that he would giving up drinking if we broke record. #1 grandson when you going learn neva put yourself in a bad position? what you have said was if they broke the record, i going toast the tsaikos with my cr reserve.

  273. al January 1, 2009 8:09 pm

    okay….check this out.

    if jj already knew he was going before the sugar bowl he should have announced it already. here’s why.

    one, the undermanned warriors could have gone into the game with that win one for the gipper attitude.

    two, the search for a new head coach could have started sooner.

    three, recruiting would have had a chance

    four, the old ad could have been gone sooner.

    five, ahouse would have had a better new year’s celebration.

  274. al January 1, 2009 8:11 pm

    yup, duffer. do you even have spyware protection?

    if you have road runner you get theirs for free and they will walk you through the installation. just call oc16 help desk. 643-2300 (i think).

    it will also depend upon how space you have on your hard drive.

    QUESTION: What is the purpose of those little yellow faces? Are they supposed to convey something? If so, what is(are) the message(s)? I never pay any attention to them because my eyesight is not that good when I don’t wear my contacts – which I don’t do when working at the computer. I just skip over them like I do some of the pidgin posts and poop-in-my-pants talk.

    The yellow thingees remind me of the hearts and flowers and kitties and babies and music notes that tween-aged girls use in place of the dots over lower case letters such as j or i or to replace the letter o. However, I cannot imagine that a group of guys who get all hoofa-poofa over the word Rainbow as a team name would ever use such gizmos.

    ANOTHER QUESTION: Michael Vick plans to return to football starting the 2009 season IF someone will pick up his contract. Any ideas what team would be willing to bring him into their fold? San Francisco?

    I know that forgiveness needs to be considered here, but his crimes were so horrendous I don’t know if I could ever watch him play again.

    I wonder how he treated his close family members – generally speaking, domestic violence is foreshadowed by mistreatment of animals.

    A quick reminder about the upcoming contest covering the balance of the 2008-2009 sports year – men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s volleyball, and baseball.

    Be sure to save ALL your ticket stubs – put your real name, blog name, e-mail address, and daytime phone number on the back of EACH one. Keep the used tickets in a safe place until we announce drop-off locations over the next several months.

    A neutral party will draw five tickets – probably at the Blog Party in July. Those five people will be the semi-finalists. A couple of us will retire to a room where we will count out all the tickets to see how many come from each of the five semi-finalists. The one with the most tickets – only one per game or match – will be the Grand Prize Winner. That prize will be announced in a few weeks, but expect it to be worth several hundred dollars at a minimum.

    The four runners-up will win consolation prizes such as dinners or NI plane tickets.

    If there’s a tie for the most games/matches attended, then the two will face off with a Jan Ken Po match – three out of five.

    We’re also looking at ways for off-O`ahu supporters to take part.

    Here are the scheduled games through next Monday night:

    Womenโ€™s Basketball: UH v.Pepperdine, 3 pm Friday, January 2; Pepperdine v Colorado, 3 pm Saturday January 3; Colorado, 5 pm, Sunday, January 4.

    They then go on the road: January 8 – Fresno; January 10 – San Jose State; January 12 – Boise State.

    Menโ€™s Basketball: Boise State, 7:05 pm Saturday, January 3; LaTech, 7:05, Monday, January 5.

    They then go on the road: Idaho, January 8; Boise State, January 10.

    Menโ€™s Volleyball: Outrigger Hotels Invitational, Thursday, January 8 – Saturday, January 10. More details next week.


    It’s been a long Junk Day in the better sense of the word – we’re still cleaning out files and folders and reorganizing the rest. Watched a lot of football at the same time, but the blowouts were no fun – but they did remind me that UH was not the only team to have its wheels fall off on Game Day.

    Don’t forget to circle the following date on your calendar: Late afternoon, Sunday, January 11, for a couple of hours of fun & friends plus food for the Family Promise Program at Nu`uanu Congretational Church – all for the price of one non-perishable item to be donated to the Hawai`i Foodbank. .

    Dinner Menu: Portuguese Bean Soup, Kitchen Sink Salad, Southern-Style Cornbread with butter & honey, and dessert not yet determined.
    More info over the next couple of days – will be asking for RSVPs early next week.

  286. BG January 1, 2009 10:02 pm


    I’m feeling a need to ask a question to your question in post 277. Why do you bother asking a question (“What is the purpose of those little yellow faces? Are they supposed to convey something? If so, what is(are) the message(s)? I never pay any attention to them because my eyesight is not that good when I donโ€™t wear my contacts – which I donโ€™t do when working at the computer. I just skip over them like I do some of the pidgin posts and poop-in-my-pants talk.”). Further, (“The yellow thingees remind me of the hearts and flowers and kitties and babies and music notes that tween-aged girls use in place of the dots over lower case letters such as j or i or to replace the letter o. However, I cannot imagine that a group of guys who get all hoofa-poofa over the word Rainbow as a team name would ever use such gizmos”).

    In the space of two paragraphs, you 1) ask about something that you say you pay no attention to and lump together with posts that play with pidgeon and joke about pooping their pants; 2) make your own interpretation as items being related to girls’ doodling and; 3) conclude that people that use them are male and disfavor the use of “Rainbow” for a team name.

    If someone explains them to you, as you requested, do you plan to start wearing your contacts while blogging? If you don’t, then your question is moot, isn’t it? Then my last question is, “Isn’t the tone of the 2nd paragraph a bit judgmental?” Not that I’m asking that you change anything…it just helps me to understand you better if you straight up state what your point is, then I can decide to act on it or ignore it. Thanks

    bhf, speed is good but still gotta be playmakers. offense, if playmaker no can get da ball, cuz qb sack, oline bus up, pau. defense, if no tackle, no play assignments, get burn, pau. speed only as good as the playmaker.

    but if you think its not wise, iโ€™ll understand. sincerely and respectfully

    bhf, i am not qualified to talk to Coach Mac. I have been a fan of his since 1999, best def coordinator since ellerson, i tink. There is no secret for success, every championship team get playmakers on offense and defense. Defense is key, defense wins championships. Offense needs to step up though, against BCS teams, no can only score 10-14 points and expect to win? Think that team continuity is also very important, cannot pass the blame among coaches to players and vice versa. lastly, luck, i believe in luck, good breaks come your way, things start to happen. Betta be lucky than good, or that is the saying.

  313. bighilofan2 January 1, 2009 11:15 pm

    okay okay

    i went to see for myself. boy, he is one speedy guy from Wash.
    i wuz also impressed wit Kaluka, huh! we get Kaluka kine too. I wuz telling you earlier today about Daniel Iopa, Keaau. you going read about him in da future. he’s a playmaker.

    jm2375, was fun the other night, thanks and Happy New Year.

  317. whitey January 1, 2009 11:41 pm

    ok, back to bed. see you all in the morning and let me be the first to say Happy 2nd Day of the New Year.

  318. Pomai January 2, 2009 1:09 am

    bighilofan2 and John you are kind of right, but I think it’s just like Adam Leonard said one time “if every member of the team does their job then we will win” Teams win championship’s, and that’s where the coach’s come in, it’s up to them to get every member of the team to do their job, from the starters to the scout team then and only then can you win championships.

  319. Pomai January 2, 2009 1:15 am

    Well my prediction for 2009 is that we will have a winning season, not ready to predict the win/lost number right now, but the one I am looking forward to is 2010, that will be the year that coach Mac will have his stamp on the team.

  320. Pomai January 2, 2009 1:23 am

    Some time I like playing the “What if game” so in looking back at the 06 and 07 season’s I was thinking what if we had had the 06 team together for all four years can you imagine what kind of team that would have been in their senior year???

  321. bighilofan2 January 2, 2009 5:56 am

    Good morning Tsaikos everywhere.

    Pomai 319. i know that this year’s team still get taste of JJ and HF. But truthfully, this year’s team also get the stamp of Coach Mack. Its his call about everything now.

  322. Pomai January 2, 2009 6:18 am

    bighilofan2 true dat, but still if you know anything about the sport you know it takes about three years to see the results of a coach, he needs to have his coaches and his players with a year or so experience in his system for them to be on the same page and performing up to snuff.

    I think coach Mac will get there but he needs the support of ADMIN all the way down to the fans. Then after that third year that’s when we can really tell how good he is. So to all the Mac haters give the guy a chance, let him get HIS team in place before you call for his head!!!!

  323. bighilofan2 January 2, 2009 6:23 am

    ho, right now the tide is full,
    the fishes all stay close inside, feeding
    and dawn is breaking on the fishing spot

    I hope Coach Mack reminds the Vegas recruits about Obama, the skinny kid from the islands who made good, came home and played with his buddies while on vacation last week. the islands are still small enough to make and keep frenz.

    we get frenly and righteous peeps in Hawaii, lifetime frenz. good education and chance fo expand their horizons…

    for all the football games, post late at night, and post early in the morn!!!!
    I have friends who are UH grad, who do not support their alma mater in
    sports and/or have not donated 1 penny scholastically. Should gather all
    these died heads and you can sermonize a motivational speech. I have
    never attended UH but support/donate to the athletic program. The latter
    half of this paragraph has the wrong aura.

  328. bighilofan2 January 2, 2009 6:50 am

  329. PIAA DS January 2, 2009 6:53 am

    some discussion of this in earlier posts:

    Timm Rosenbach was hired several days ago to be the OC for NMSU and according to the St. Louis Dispatch, St. Louis Rams assistant coach Keith Murphy will leave the pro team and coach receivers and special teams for NMSU.

  330. 808ike January 2, 2009 7:00 am

    Sounds like NMSU is getting it together. Now, all they need is better
    recruits like UH.

  331. bighilofan2 January 2, 2009 7:02 am


    good morning my bradda. someone tole me dis great one liner, which i have used often when discussing da future wit my constituency.

    “This is your life. You only get one. What you going to do with this chance, now that you’ve been reminded and you’ve got I don’t know how many tomorrows ahead, but that all starts now?”

    I usually tell da constituency dat during the first interview.
    I owe dat(constituency) to Las Vegas. and Ecstatic too. gotta work doze two adjectives into my vocab repetoire ๐Ÿ˜€

    watch. ๐Ÿ˜€ Pomai, Ecstatic tomorrows start now in Warrior Nation. ๐Ÿ˜€

  332. Kekoa January 2, 2009 7:05 am

    Good Morning & Happy New Year Doris!

    The news in #329 will certainly pucker things up in the WAC! The Rams haven’t been the same in years…but then again, with that kind of NFL experience at the college level it does make you say Hmmm!

  338. Kekoa January 2, 2009 7:40 am

    808ike ~ I resemble that remark in your #327. I prolly walked the halls and athletic facilities of UH more then most grads, but never attended the school myself. I donate to the UH foundation, and I team up with my former classmates every Spring to provide a schollie for a HS we attended 40 plus years ago.

    Some people just never think of paying anything back because they failed Life Lesson 101, and dumped the class for *Drama.* (Not you Esme!)

  339. 808ike January 2, 2009 7:41 am


    Used this quote to unmotivated people. Most are grads and/or attended
    school of higher learning.

    “There is one guarantee in life—one is born, one will die. What
    counts in life is what one does in-between. Some are movers and
    shakers. They sometimes attain their names in history books. Others
    make an impact in peoples lives. They alter the direction of someone(s)
    and sets them on a positive path. Others are like leaves on a tree. They
    blossom, fall, and rot on the ground. Which one are you?”

    Most can’t comprehend this. Something is wrong here.

  340. 808ike January 2, 2009 7:50 am

    We should go to UH and teach a class pertaining to this subject.

  341. 808ike January 2, 2009 7:54 am

    brew808: January 1st, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    Okay – I am concerned about whitey. Nothing since his gallant record post effort initiated by him a couple of days ago. So, whatโ€™s the deal?

    – Is he lost on the โ€œdark-sideโ€?
    – In lock-up?
    – Napping on the golf course like Rip Van Winkle? (That was his last destinationโ€ฆ)
    – mechanical problems on the space-craft that kid-napped him?
    – Still celebrating his effort and the New Year with Remy & family?

    โ€ฆ just wondering. ๐Ÿ™„

  362. brew808 January 2, 2009 9:37 am

    Howzit Stretch! You’re off today? (:D One might have a difficult time telling the difference – “work”, “marketing”, “meeting”, “day off”…. Haha! Oh, maybe no travel to Kauai?) Enjoy your “day off”! ๐Ÿ˜†

  363. brew808 January 2, 2009 9:43 am

    BTW – (for entertainment purposes only…)
    I would take Tech -4.5 and ‘bama -9.5 (altho I hope Utes shine).
    Not much interest in other game ECU -3 over Kentucky.

    What do you say? I wonder how the Tsaikos did in LV? Some of them should be returning this weekend…. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  364. Hank January 2, 2009 9:44 am

    After watching them on TV, I think Daily-Lyles could play next year, and Tepa would compete to start for us along with Lopati from Kapolei IMHO.

    You guys got any thoughts?

  365. Stretch January 2, 2009 9:45 am

    brew808 – thankfully I am off today – no “work”, no “marketing”, no “meeting”.

  367. brew808 January 2, 2009 9:51 am

    Hank – There should be lots of competition at LB and DE next season. I think a key will be leadership – especially off season training and bonding. IMHO – a healthy Blaze is a player, but is he a “team leader”. UH really needs these leaders to step-up and…. LEAD!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  368. brew808 January 2, 2009 9:57 am

    Also – all of these guys really look good on film and paper. If they are willing, and if the coaching and leadership is there, there’s a chance for significant improvement in Special Teams. Not to sound like a broken record, but…. how about Funaki? Oh… IMHO ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Good afternoon/morning Tsaikos…

    The NCAA career TD pass record now belongs to Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell, and Colt is second. Colt had the record with three years of play and it took Harrell 4 years to break it.

    I agree on both “entertainment” calls, Brew, even though Tech is behind right now. Penn St. had a shot to have a very ‘entertaining’ ending yesterday, eh?

  403. Richie January 2, 2009 11:29 am

    I actually think that the departure of Alex Gerke is a good thing for the program. We can try and concentrate on picking-up an actual running back coach, rather than using a line coach to cover for running backs. Alos, as nice as a guy as Brian Smith seems, I think the program really needs to consider a change at the O-Line coach. Although he is young and enthusiastic, he is also very inexperienced and probably needed to work his way up a few more years maybe at the 1-AA level before jumping into a Division one program like UH. An offense really starts with the offensive line and unless we make some changes during the off season, I think we will continue to struggle offensively. Brian Smith has a long road to travel before he is ever in the same league as a Mike Cavanaugh and we do not have the years to give him to learn how to be an effective and seasoned coach.

    Many fans have also unfairly criticized Coach Ron Lee. I think that he is an outstanding coach and just needs the support of more experienced offensive position coaches. He really had none this past season and I really think that criticisms of him have been unfair. Consider the defense with Coach Mack, Coach Cal, and Coach Miano.

    Anyway, Happy New Year

    I agree. Watching USC’s O-Line, you can tell they are very well coached and have many different, quick, blocking techniques and strategies. I was very impressed with their execution on the screens and especially the Mark Sanchez QB draw for TD play.

    Our line just seems to be that much slower.

  413. Jason January 2, 2009 12:26 pm

    Give Brian Smith some time. I’ve never been a fan of Dennis McKnight, so I (and others) am (are) of the opinion that Smith needs to “decontaminate” the players that were under his tutelage. With guys like Samson, Tala, et al., they had coaching under Cav, so they were fine (that matches with the comments that Samson was virtually the O-line coach in 2006). But now Smith has only McKnight guys, and he needs to fix them up.

    I’d also like to know how much Ron contributes from the booth for Smith as well; I know he’s talked about how Rolo needs to improve at seeing the whole field, so I assume Ron is looking at O-line play too, but IDK how much he communicates with Smith on the sideline. Again, I believe better communication is a big key for improving next year.

    And if we are going to bring in a coach to help Smith with the OL, I hope it’s a coach with solid experience in the R&S. That might help Smith to grow as he gets better as an OL coach.

    Not to mention, the guys we have just aren’t of the athletic caliber that we’ve had in the past. This isn’t a knock on them, cause they do work hard and try their best, but I consider this to be a fact. The three real athletic guys are Estes, Letuli, and Hisatake โ€” Estes is fine, but Letuli’s been moved around from RB to DL to OL, and he’s been hurt, while Hisatake is still getting used to the OL (but I think he can break through next year).

    Assuming LaCount and Leonard are as good as they say, I’d love to see a Leonard-Letuli-Estes-Hisatake-LaCount offensive line.

  414. Kazz January 2, 2009 12:27 pm

    January 2nd, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    Assuming LaCount and Leonard are as good as they say, Iโ€™d love to see a Leonard-Letuli-Estes-Hisatake-LaCount offensive line.

    I know what you mean. If Leonard’s footwork and agility is what they say it is, it will be hard for him not to start next season. After thinking about it, LaCount may have to battle harder than some think for a spot next season. You’d still have Kia and Letuli returning.

    Well at least with the proposed Leonard-Letuli-Estes-Hisatake-LaCount line, no one will complain about lack of size on the line!

    Come to think of it, when was the last time both tackles were 6’6″ or taller and when both guards were 6’4″?

  419. KapoleiWarrior January 2, 2009 1:02 pm

    I like your OL lineup there Jason and I agree with giving Coach Smith more of a chance. And you’re totally right about the root cause of our OL problems…it’s not the X’s and O’s….its the Jimmies and Joes. Speaking of Jimmies and Joes, did you see what the Georgia DL did to Michigan States O-line? I’m sure MSU’s O-line had been thoroughly schooled in all the latest blocking techniques (as some have insinuated that our boys haven’t) but the superior speed and quickness of Georgia’s pass rush could not be overcome.

    Who do you guys think will be the first UH player to be drafted?

    Remember in the ’07 draft when Ikaika Alama-Francis was the surprise 1st UH player taken off the board (before Samson, Mel, etc.)

  424. brew808 January 2, 2009 1:41 pm

    Jake Ingram first, then Mouton, Veikune… IMHO ๐Ÿ˜€

  425. Jason January 2, 2009 1:46 pm

    J-Dog: IDK, that was hardly a surprise. I thought it was going to be Samson first, but Ikaika was projected to be picked somewhere around there, anyways.

    This year, looks like it’ll be David Veikune that goes first, early projections have him anywhere from the 3rd to 5th rounds. He’s probably the only solid lock to be drafted, barring any injuries. Jake Ingram has a good shot to be drafted too โ€” depends on who needs a long snapper. Ryan Mouton, Solomon Elimimian, and Adam Leonard could be drafted, but that will be dependent on their Combine/Pro Day tests.

  426. whitey January 2, 2009 1:49 pm

    player #1 is Veikune in the 3rd rd followed by Mouton in the 3rd. Ingram will go in the 6th round.

    i have read a lot of posts about the oline , brian smith, ron lee etc.
    my take, if i may:

    Ron Lee is getting to much crap. it is not his fault that Mac set him up for failure by getting him a lousy Oline coach. also, ron had to get a qb, 4 wr’s.

    Brian Smith is in over his head. he needs to be let go NOW. this years Oline was the WORST in NCAA history. enough said!
    you dont give someone who failed at this level time to learn how to coach. You either got it or dont.
    he can go “learn” at div 2!

    Mac gets paid to make tough decisions, but it is time for a change at the Oline position.

    Happy New Year!

    brew808 — some ladies do not drink alcoholic beverages, even something as weak as 70 proof Jagermeister in Red Bull (diet, of course) ๐Ÿ™„ So if a Tsai-kette declines an offer, that’s perfectly fine.

    …now, some people are “Bulla Bombers” by nature of their personalities. jm2375, Addahknowsports, and jojo immediately come to mind–and of oourse, homey. Also Betty, Mei Ling, Mrs. LTUHF, Al’s Boss, and the twins. They are all “bombers”, and fun to be with.

    As for jm2375, she should just join the fun…and bring triple chocolate cake. ๐Ÿ˜
