Today is a reminder of the freedom we enjoy in this country.
And if the Mountain West did not accept the UH football team, it is a reminder that being independent might have had another meaning for the Warriors.

Peter Upham, a coach in Australia, sends us this note on Adrian Thomas, who was with UH for five years, and Blake Muir, a first-year Warrior:
Here are Adrian Thomas and Blake Muir training together in Sydney, Australia. This is week #6 of their training block. Adrian is waiting out the NFL lockout here and helping coach in the local league, which has just started its preseason. Blake is working out with him, a tremendous advantage over training alone, as it means having a graduated player with 5 years of Hawaii OL experience available to him every day. They train 6 days a week together, lifting and working on blocking drills. If it rains, then they just train inside. Blake’s younger brother Sean, a senior OL here, gets to train with them 2 days a week amongst his school work.
