JC safety chooses UH

The Warriors filled yet another need, receiving a commitment from safety Aaron Brown of Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, Calif.
Brown is 6 feet 1 and 215 pounds. He can run 40 yards in under 4.5 seconds. And he’s from a pretty good JC — the school that produced Colt Brennan, Jason Whieldon and Mike Tinoco, as well as basketball players Anthony “A.C.” Carter, Tes Whitlock, Micah Kroeger and Eric Ambrozich.
After the Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, UH loses safeties Keao Monteilh, Erik Robinson, Dane Porlas, Desmond Thomas and Ryan Mouton.

Here’s the release on Ryan Perry’s nomination for the Rudy Award:
LAS VEGAS, NV (December 9, 2008) – The University of Hawaii nominated Warriors senior defensive back Ryan Perry for the SECOND ANNUAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL RUDY AWARD, it was announced today by The Rudy Foundation 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  The award honors student-athletes who demonstrate exemplary CHARACTER, COURAGE, CONTRIBUTION and COMMITMENT as members of their collegiate football teams. These same traits were immortalized in the blockbuster film “RUDY” in 27 seconds and against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, enabling Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger to carve his name into college football lore.
 Every Division I Conference and 53 of its 120 football programs submitted nominations for the 2008 Award, more than double the number of applications from the inaugural year in 2007. 
Ryan Perry, it was stated in the school’s nomination materials, was a walk-on who has overcome a disability (Erb’s Palsy) to become one of the team’s inspirational leaders and top scout team members, twice earning the Scout Team Award.  A tireless worker on and off the field, Perry carries a 3.74 GPA at UH.  His determination earned him a scholarship prior to the start of his senior year.  After undergoing corrective surgery for a paralysis of an arm associated with Erb’s Palsy, Perry has been playing football ever since the age of 8.  Perry is a member of the Golden Key Club, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and the UH Student-Athlete Athletic Committee.

Disturbing report that the Arena Football League is expected to cancel the 2009 season. The AFL was a nice league for former Warriors. Chad Owens is still under contract with the Colorado Crush. Owens now runs football clinic Sundays in Pauoa.

Here’s the story on the AFL:


Here’s how to sign up for Owens’ clinics:

My cousin Rodney Kubo spent his entire life helping others. He served in the military, served as a police officer, and then served as a fire fighter. He also was a great husband and great father.
He died yesterday at age 55.
We’ll miss him.

    Good morning LV, Liz, SteveM

    I guess we all are having a bit of insomnia? Too bad we’re not at Genjis singing a few carols. sj and Pepper are fast asleep. It’s muggy and hard to sleep. Wish we had some ac!

  16. letsgowarriors December 10, 2008 12:23 am

    so really, lee aguirre is pretty much a no go then huh? are we pretty much done with recruiting with the exception of the 1-2 OL?

  17. myki December 10, 2008 12:23 am

    ST do have any idea what the practice schedule is like next week?

  18. al December 10, 2008 12:24 am

  20. SteveM December 10, 2008 12:26 am

    ST — sad to hear your cousins departed so young. My condolences to you and your family.

    las vegas — hi! Thanks for the Christmas poems on the last blog entry.

  21. al December 10, 2008 12:26 am

    aaron brown is a huge pick up. he’s also good sized. that’s at least three recruits who experienced the electricity this past saturday.

    but, stephen. who’s the running back that mack keeps mentioning????

  22. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2008 12:28 am

    Believe it or not, they’re not close to being done with recruiting.
    I’m trying to crunch the numbers, and I think it’s do-able. A few will gray shirt, although it hasn’t been determined which ones. I know at least one probably won’t make it academically, so he’ll also be a grayshirt/redshirt type.

  23. myki December 10, 2008 12:35 am

    Finally getting a little sleepy. ‘Nite all!!

  24. SteveM December 10, 2008 12:36 am

    myki — Kid and I have long talked of a last-minute midnight cattle call at Hungry Lion. Never thought of a last-minute Karaoke Call at Genji’s … tell you what, you can have the honor of putting out the first call (but no later than 10:30 PM so we can get there before the kitchen closes) 😆

    Which reminds me, I don’t have any plans for Saturday yet but might make a few inquiries tomorrow 🙂

  25. letsgowarriors December 10, 2008 12:36 am

    tsai, i hope the one that doesnt qualify chooses the HPU route vs. the JC route. the numbers are crazy, too crazy for me to even try and crunch. and im an accountant!!!

  26. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER December 10, 2008 12:37 am

    One last shout out to SteveM- good to see you cruising around and feeling better! So what… Christmas Eve post game karaoke?

    I know, I know…. family night…

  27. al December 10, 2008 12:39 am

    based upon what tsai just said, sounds like a jc candidate will have to gray or red shirt all the while getting the necessary credits to complete his aa degree.

  28. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2008 12:43 am

    Actually, all of the JC guys are good.
    It’s a high school guy who might not make it this year.

  29. SteveM December 10, 2008 12:43 am

    Liz — Christmas Eve post-game karaoke? Hmmmm–better have someone like Kekoa or d1shima call that one. That way I can tell Peaches that it wasn’t my doing… 👿

  30. letsgowarriors December 10, 2008 12:47 am

    i like that so many people are coming in the spring: stutzmann, masch, brown, possibly davis, nielsen if i remember correctly. bradley.

  31. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc December 10, 2008 1:28 am

    Am still trying to put together a lunch Cattle Call on Sunday, December 21 for Tsaiko Lurker Kamali’o NYC, the generous donor of two season tickets to Coach Alan Inaba’s after school program at Dole Middle School. She will be visiting her family here on O`ahu from Friday, December 19, and leaves for the Big Island on Tuesday, December 23.

    Unfortunately, that means she’ll miss both the Tsaiko Holiday Party at Murphy’s on the 18th as well as the T-Gate for the Sheraton Hawai`i Bowl on the 24th.

    She’s a graduate of McKinley High School who moved to New York over 30 years ago to pursue a career in art. She still hasn’t forgotten her roots – her generosity has spurred a lot of support for Alan’s prgram including from Tsaikos.

    Here’s what she said in her most recent e-mail:

    I would love to get together for dinner or lunch. I arrive Friday evening on December 19 and leave for the Big Island on the 23rd. Unfortunately, I will miss the game and the T-gate. It would have been fun to finally put some faces to the names I always see on the Warrior Beat. But I have seen some of the Tsaiko karaoke performances on YouTube–I was particularly taken with Stephen’s rendition of “The LIon Sleeps Tonight.” How could anyone sleep?

    Therefore, I am putting together a Luncheon Cattle Call for Sunday, December 21 – probably around 12:30 pm. Alan and Barry, his assistant coach, will be attending along with their wives.

    Recommendations wanted for a great place to eat with some scenic vistas and some local atmosphere – $20 to $25 per person including tip – anywhere on O`ahu. I’ll need to make reservations ASAP given the time of year. Either buffet or off-the-menu is okay.

    Even if you don’t want to or can’t attend because of other commitments, please post your suggestions here. Signups will start as soon as a location is selected.

  32. Pride. December 10, 2008 1:30 am

    Crossing my fingers, hoping that the friendships made by some of this week’s Polynesia teammates will result in Hawaii getting a few recruits that want to play together. We could ceratinly use the services of John Martinez(6-3 270), Xavier Su’a-Filo(6-5 285), and Percy Tamoelau(6-5 280), and Stan Hasiak(6-6 315),on next year’s offensive line.

  33. al December 10, 2008 2:00 am

    agree with you mr pride.

  34. Pride. December 10, 2008 2:08 am

    Those four along with Chauncey Makainai(6-4 315), Jordan Loeffler(6-5 265), and Benson Ma’afala(6-2 307), would give us a pretty bright future at the O-line for years to come.

  35. BigWave96744 December 10, 2008 2:25 am

    Saddleback also sent us punter Tim Grasso
    WR Jimmy Flanagan (Denny’s younger bro), who tried out in the spring, also went there

    AddahKnowsJoe, great seeing you and meeting your wife in the elavator. Who was the other Tsaikette with you folks and UHFan808?

    UHFan808 I hope you didn’t have to pay the big bucks for parking (I was behind you at the pay booth). Many of us who stayed late, including Michael Washington’s mom forgot the validation and luckily someone reminded us before leaving..

    Oh and I bumped into your twin earlier in the evening. No I literally bumped into her outside when you folks were taking pictures.

    Happy Belated Birthday to Warrior SB Rick Taylor, whose birthday was on Dec 7th (the day of the banquet)

  36. BigWave96744 December 10, 2008 2:28 am

    I heard Waylon Lolotai is finishing up his LDS mission and may be enrolling in the spring? Will he be counted with the 2009 class?

  37. BigWave96744 December 10, 2008 2:30 am

    Hey Stephen,
    I’m related to some Kubo’s on the island…
    Could it be we are distant, distant, distant cousins?????

  38. Pride. December 10, 2008 2:38 am

    You know people. Coach Mack said a coupla weeks ago that he was hoping for Notre Dame. Weis has showed up 2 times already. =
    Coach Mack is one sharp cookie! And Humble too. He’s got some major plusses.

    Okay Coach, you got me convinced. Now pretty please: teach coach Brian the glare!!!! I’m feeling he’s almost right there!!

    Howz dat LV? 😀

  42. bighilofan2 December 10, 2008 3:11 am

    So I looked up South Bend Tribune. This is what they’re saying.
    – – –
    “And I guess Hawaii probably adds a little more excitement and a little more wind under the sail for a lot of guys, because some guys would never imagine going to Hawaii in the first place, let alone to play under the sun. It’s more attractive than Houston or something like that.”

    The younger players on the team are viewing the bowl more as a launching point for 2009 than an encore for 2008. And the seniors are right there with them on that. Bruton can’t envision a better way to leave a lasting legacy than by ending the bowl losing streak, which started when Bruton was 3 years old and quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus was a sophomore starting QB for the Irish.

    “That would be a major accomplishment, especially since mine and David (Grimes’) class is the quote-unquote, forgotten class or the worst (recruiting) class in Notre Dame history,” he said. “But it would be great to say we broke that streak, along with the fifth-year seniors, and started a new streak in itself.”

    Limited practices

    Because of exam schedules, coaches being out of the road recruiting and the early bowl date, the Irish will use only 10 of their allotted 15 bowl practices this year.

    ND’s first two practices were Saturday and Sunday. Players won’t practice again until Friday and Saturday, but they’ll lift and run twice this week in the interim.

    – – –

    yee hawwww! Limited Practices. yeeeeeeeee haaaaaaa!!!

    go Warriors!!!!

  43. bighilofan2 December 10, 2008 3:17 am

    Those guyz like use us for da mat. No way men, no way!

    Good luck with finals, guys!

    I am up too early seeing the kids off on their bikes heading to the Super Ferry.

  50. Garret December 10, 2008 6:07 am


    Momo has set up a HUGE hydroponic area at Olomana school and he teaches the students there. He also teaches an adult education class at Olomana that includes some instruction on hydroponics, so if you are interested in the subject he can help you.

  51. Garret December 10, 2008 6:12 am

    Article about SJSU being one of the few bowl-eligible teams to be left out of a bowl game this year.

    SJSU football head coach Dick Tomey said he was not surprised when the team did not receive a bid to the Motor City Bowl, or any other bowl game.

    The Spartans, who were bowl eligible with a 6-6 record, lost the final bowl bid to Florida Atlantic University.

    “We were happy to have been eligible,” Tomey said. “We would have loved the chance to have a winning season.”

    According to the San Jose Mercury News, at least $500,000 in tickets needed to be purchased by the team to participate in the Motor City bowl. Florida Atlantic secured its bid by purchasing an additional $250,000 in tickets Sunday morning.

    Since 1990, the Spartans have only played in one bowl, the New Mexico Bowl in 2006.

  52. Garret December 10, 2008 6:18 am

    It is sad that there apparently won’t be a Hula Bowl this year…especially since UH has so many seniors!

    Great Morning All!

    Terrific news about Aaron Brown. Sounds like a good addition.

    Comments from Brown and Masch highlight the value of vocal fan support at the games!
    No recruit would be able to hear all those “Pay per Viewers” cheering from their living rooms or garages!

  57. d1島 December 10, 2008 6:37 am

    …but then again, neither would they be able to hear the “monku monku” after a disappointing finish 👿

  58. Stretch December 10, 2008 6:38 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Condolences to ST & the Kubo Ohana’s. 55?? Damn too young.

  61. d1島 December 10, 2008 6:43 am


    Sorry, 12-21 is pretty booked up already since it’s the last Sunday before Xmas.
    In light of that, your best choice for a site may be a buffet. It would be hard to make a reservation at a table-service restaurant at this late date, esp. since you don’t have a head count as yet. Anyway, since I can’t make it, I’ll defer from a specific suggestion but that would be my general recommendation.

  62. d1島 December 10, 2008 6:44 am

    Have a great day erryboddy!

  69. ryan December 10, 2008 7:42 am

    Looks like there is a big offensive lineman visiting us this weekend. He’s teammates with Aaron Brown, to bad they couldn’t of visited together this past weekend.

  70. Kekoa December 10, 2008 7:47 am

    ST ~ Practice schedule please.

    Also heard from dat dirty little birdee that some of ND players like to start fights after the play. We must alert coach Mack to look for evidence of that in the exchange of game film. We have players that would take the bait.

  71. Kekoa December 10, 2008 7:55 am

    Hiya Liz!

    Can you believe this recruiting class?! Damn the torpedoes…full speed ahead!

    Prayers also for Karl “KP” Lorch, a former standout defensive end at Kamehameha, USC and with the Washington Redskins. I ran into a mutual acquaintance yesterday who said that “KP” is very ill at Queens.

    Welcome to the Warrior ohana Mr Brown!

    Condolences to the Kubo, Tsai and hawaiianbod’s families on their losses.

    lv – those funnies were hilarious. Couldn’t quite get thru the legalese one, but that’s why I’m not a lawyer.

    There appears to be enough unrecruited talent around to add some fantastic walk-ons that could make a big impact in the future.

  92. Pomai December 10, 2008 9:45 am

    Was da night bafo’ Christmas, and all ova’ da place,
    Not even da geckos was showin’ their face.

    Da stockings was hangin’ on top da TV
    (‘Cause no mo’ fireplace in Hawai’i)

    Da kids stay all crashed, my old man too.
    They leave all da work for you-know-who.

    So me, I stay pickin’ up alla their toys,
    When – boom! – outside get only big noise!

    I run to da window, I open ’em up,
    I stick out my head and I yell, “Eh! Whassup?!”

    And then, I no can ba-lieve what I seen!
    Was so unreal, you know what I mean?

    This fat haole guy get his reindeers in my yard!
    And reindeers not housebroken, you know, as’ why hard!

    But nemmind, this Christmas, so I cut ’em some slack.
    Plus, had uku pile presents pokin’ outta his sack!

    So I wait ’till he pau tie up his reindeer,
    Then I yell out da window, “Huui! Brah, ova hea!”

    An’ I tell ’em first thing, when I open da door,
    “Eh, Hemo your shoes! You going dirty my floor!”

    He take off his boots, he tell, “You know who I am?”
    I go, “Ho! From the smell, must be Mr. Toe Jam!”

    He make mempachi eyes and he go, “Ho, ho, ho!”
    By now, I stay thinking this guy kinda slow!

    He look like my Tutu, but little less weight,
    And his beard stay so white, mo’ white than shark bait!

    He stay all in red, specially his nose,
    And get reindeer spit on top his nice clothes!

    But him, he no care; he just smile at me,
    And he start fo’ put presents unda-neath da tree.

    I tell ’em, “Eh, brah, no need make li’dat,
    And watch where you step! You going ma-ke da cat!”

    Then, out from his bag, he pull one brand new computah,
    Choke video games, and one motorized scootah!

    He try for fill up da Christmas socks too,
    But had so much pukas, all da stuff went fall troo.

    When he pau, I tell ’em, “Eh Santa, try wait!
    I get plenty leftovahs, I go make you one plate!”

    But he nevah like hang, he had so much fo’ do;
    Gotta make all them small kids’ wishes come true.

    So I wave ’em goodbye, and I flash ’em da shaka,
    And I tell ’em, “Mele Kalikimaka!”

    When he hear that, he stop…and I telling you true,
    He go, “Garans ball-barans! Merry Christmas to you!”

  93. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2008 9:47 am

    They’re going to need walk-ons.
    There are a lot of pukas to fill on the roster.

    FYI, finals are next week. Last day of instruction is tomorrow. But I’m taking today off to study.

    I love how the new commits are talking about the atmosphere at Aloha Stadium. That’s what we need for every game! So let’s build on last Saturday, get Aloha Stadium rocking on Christmas Eve; and in the meantime, let’s fill the Stan Sheriff Center and all the other sporting venues too. 🙂

    D1 & Others:

    Concerning a proposed Cattle Call on Sunday, December 21: There doesn’t seem to be any interest amongst folks here on the blog to go on one so we’ll just focus on an eating-out experience that day for the eight of us.

    The only buffets I know about are the Halekulani (too expensive) and Sizzler’s – food is okay but the atmosphere is just one step above a fast food place.

    Generally speaking, I am not a buffet kind of person unless, of course, the offerings are all desserts so I am not very familiar with what’s available here on O`ahu. I know there are two serving Japanese food – Aloha Tower Marketplace and another in Ala Moana Center on the Ho`okipa Terrace – however, I really don’t want to go anywhere AMC at this time of year. As for the former, a couple of Cattle Calls were held there, but I understand that that some of the folks got a little huhu over something that happened – I don’t know the details

    Turtle Bay and Ko Olina may be a bit too far given that all of us would wind up traveling a fairly long distance – but that may be a possibility.

    Any buffets in Waikiki?

    As for a table service restaurant, there are several different possibilities, but the next step is deciding if it should be ethnic or standard American cuisine. Any suggestions? Until the heart attack, we used to eat out fairly regularly but pretty much stayed with places open after 9 pm.

    BACK TO SPORTS: What’s with the lack of television coverage for the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament. According to the most recent e-newsletter sent out by the Athletic Department, the finals are going to be on ESPNU which I understand is not even carried by Oceanic/Time-Warner. I know – let’s get through Friday’s game first and then Saturday’s, but I am surprised that the coverage will be so limited.

  102. FloridaTed December 10, 2008 10:48 am

    Good morning/afternoon, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    Another life cut short, tragedy a constant companion of good people all around.

    This is the time when faith is challenged and proves itself or not. My thoughts are with all who are going through this right now, since those experiences are part of my life also. God bless.

    Boy, the Warrior team next year is shaping up to be extremely interesting.

  103. Rob25 December 10, 2008 11:02 am


    Tsukiji’s @ Ala Moana is pretty good. I like it much better than Makino Chaya and think that their food is better with much better service…for a buffet.

    We were at Ala Moana two nights ago and there wasn’t any problem getting parking or much of a crowd at any of the stores. I’m not sure what the situation would be like when you are planning to go, but I am sure that the economy is really affecting many at this time and they aren’t in a shopping frenzy.

    Sorry about the non response, but I think that people are just really busy at this time of the year and sometimes you have to pick and choose. I do hope that you have a nice evening out.

  104. madeinhawaii December 10, 2008 11:02 am

    Awesome! Congratulations!

    Nice get on the Safety, Aaron Brown. Warriors are getting bigger and faster and more talented by the day. Looks like we will have a very good mix of local, mainland, and other country players next season.

  108. Committed Road Warrior December 10, 2008 11:15 am

    A member of Congress introduced legislation today tackling the BCS system. The key sponsor of the proposed bill is from…..drumroll……..Texas.


    Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, didn’t specify what sort of playoff he wants – only that the BCS should go.

    “In some years the sport’s national championship winner was left unsettled, and at least one school was left out of the many millions of dollars in revenue that accompany the title,” Barton said in a statement released ahead of the bill’s introduction. “Despite repeated efforts to improve the system, the controversy rages on.”

    He said the bill – being co-sponsored by Reps. Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democrat, and Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican – “will prohibit the marketing, promotion, and advertising of a postseason game as a national championship’ football game, unless it is the result of a playoff system. Violations of the prohibition will be treated as violations of the Federal Trade Commission Act as an unfair or deceptive act or practice.”

    Believe it or not, they’re not close to being done with recruiting.
    I’m trying to crunch the numbers, and I think it’s do-able. A few will gray shirt, although it hasn’t been determined which ones

    How exactly does “grayshirtting” work? Are recruits allowed to change their mind during the year they grayshirt?

  111. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc December 10, 2008 11:30 am

    Mahalo Jason for the info; however, we don’t have digital tv service – or for that matter a digital tv and probably won’t even get one until our current tv set goes kaflooey. I’ll give Murphy’s and a couple of other sports bars a call if needed after this week.

  112. FloridaTed December 10, 2008 11:30 am

    auwe, too bad about the AFL, good stepping stone for a lot of players

  123. A-House December 10, 2008 12:02 pm

    ST, our good neighbor:

    How many of last year’s and this year’s recruits will make a strong contribution in 2009?

    We all know that there were many seemingly good players from last year that redshirted, got a year under their belt, and ready to go into Spring ball.

    Hope this year’s JC recruiting class can make a significant contribution in 2009. If not, redshirt and be ready to go in 2010 with 2 years to play.

    Would be terrific to see next year’s LB corps with Blaze, Satele, and Paipai as the starters. It would take another player with extra-ordinary skills in Spring and Summer training to displace this trio. Build the 2nd and 3rd string to be ready to go in 2010.

    Somehow, I am not comfortable with the 2009 O-line; just a feeling, not a bad omen. Vets and new recruits must make a statement in Spring and Fall to push those ahead of them. Strongly believe that the better the reserves, the better the starters. Hope that Hisatake will make a statement for an OT starting spot. Brian Smith must do all in his power to get the players to believe in their “techniques”.

    I still question the O-line philosophy of “back-pedalling” to block. Be aggresive and charge the D-line and make them pay for playing the Warriors. I do not believe in “that’s tradition” mentality – I ask WHY if it does not make sense and why don’t we find a new way to block! The Warriors OT back pedalling gets pushed back into the QB making it tougher to find a receiver and complete the pass. Look at sumo – do they wait for someone to hit them? – hell no, they charge and try to kick ass!!!

    But again, “mine is not to reason why, mine is but to do and die”. Hell no, I want to know the reason why!!!!!!!!!!!!

  124. Loa December 10, 2008 12:06 pm

    CRW – #108, hmm, i wonder if the representtives would have introduced a bill if Texas was in the championship game

  127. Committed Road Warrior December 10, 2008 12:20 pm


    Don’t know. Probably not, if I reckon. Didn’t Rep. Abercrombie introduce a bill trying to go after the BCS after our Sugar Bowl appearance? I don’t think anything resulted from that.

  128. Loa December 10, 2008 12:21 pm

    howzit las vegas and A-House

    any mention on when the bowl practices are?

  129. Jason December 10, 2008 12:24 pm

    A-House: I’ve never understood your point with the offensive line — do you want them to drive block like with run blocking? Eventually, the linemen will have to backpedal somewhat because you can’t go downfield in pass blocking — that would be an illegal man downfield penalty.

  130. Loa December 10, 2008 12:25 pm

    CRW – yeh i kinda recall something like that after the sugar bowl, but then again my memory not too good

  131. Committed Road Warrior December 10, 2008 12:25 pm

    Rep. Barton’s proposed legislation hasn’t shown up in the THOMAS database yet.

    I didn’t realize that there was a women’s football league until this article announced their tryouts. The thing is, this isn’t a serious football league and is going after a different market…because instead of using full protective padding, all of the women play in lingerie. The tryouts in Atlanta are taking place at an Elementary School…

    Well, the Atlanta Steam finally announced their official team casting for December 20 at 10 in the morning. Naturally, I was curious where this glorious event will take place. It has been my several month dream to be the Steam’s unofficial blogger, until the eventual restraining order.

    I know what you’re thinking. How many of these girls are actually going to bring cleats? Oh, right! The Atlanta Steam of the Lingerie Football League are having their tryouts at an elementary school. How does that even make a list of possible venues?

  134. Loa December 10, 2008 12:33 pm

    Lee – howzit, so which one is your favorite?

  135. Garret December 10, 2008 12:35 pm

    The league is looking to have 10 teams from around the country for their 7-on-7 tackle football teams. Right now they are looking for players in LA, San Diego, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, New England and Chicago.

  136. Stretch December 10, 2008 12:39 pm

  137. Loa December 10, 2008 12:45 pm

  140. las vegas December 10, 2008 12:56 pm

    I can visualize what A-House would like the O-Line to do.
    I assume that he wants the line to take an initial step forward and meet the D-Line head on.
    Fine for the interior line but not for our slo-mo tackles.
    Lacking true lateral speed our OT’s must take an angle to (sometimes)
    block or divert the pass rusher and that usually means to back up and/or drop the outside leg to seal the edge.

  141. Garret December 10, 2008 12:58 pm


    They did have that during half time of a super bowl, and now they want to create a 10-team league based on the concept.

  142. UH recruits December 10, 2008 1:00 pm

    has anyone seen the hawaii, mainland bowl practices. how are our recruits doing.
    there must be some big time scouts there trying to steal our better recruits.
    If anyone has gone, can we get an update????

    the paper has some stuff on qb corey neilson. what about the others?

  143. las vegas December 10, 2008 1:02 pm

    Your sumo analogy is interesting but flawed.
    Though both men may make a hard initial contact, neither men needs to continue the attack and may shove, slap down, back up or throw their opponent down as there is no QB to chase after.

  144. A-House December 10, 2008 1:06 pm

    Las Vegas:

    Exact-a mundo!!!

    Charge the D-line and meet them within the “parameters” allowed for pass plays beyond the line of scrimmage if necessary.

    Also, depending on the play calling, the OTs can take 1 step back and then attack the DEs’.

    Current philosophy favors the D-line by huge chunks since they can just “rip-out” on the OTs.

    Now, Jason, can you visualize this?

  145. las vegas December 10, 2008 1:08 pm

    After being away on business for a week before Christmas, Tom thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift.

    “How about some perfume?” he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.

    “That’s a bit much,” said Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.

    “Thats still quite a bit,” Tom groused.

    Growing disgusted, the clerk brought out a tiny $15 bottle.

    Tom grew agitated, “What I mean,” he said, “is I’d like to see something real cheap.”

    So the clerk handed him a mirror.

    A-House and las vegas: Okay, that was the other thing I was thinking of, just wanted to make sure.

    How would that counter the widening of the DEs, though? Are you widening the line splits to get those tackles aligned in closer proximity to the ends? If so, what would prevent the defense from shooting those gaps?

    Speed kills.
    Unless D-Line over loads, no way that with just four men DT’s can shoot the gaps.
    Everything hinges on quick and intuitive OT’s

  155. A-House December 10, 2008 1:27 pm

    Las Vegas:

    One thing that always impressed me was the “intial” contact where the sumotori would stand each other up.

    Why would this technique not work for the O-Line? How does this differ from the “punching” techinque? Stopping the push beyond the “ineligible receiver penalty” mark should be part of the technique for any pass play.

    Does it hurt to try this without telling the D-line coach to see the results? Of course, we are assuming that the O-line coach is willing to listen and evaluate many different techniques and determine what works and what does not.

    A-House – First of all I have no o-line coaching or playing experience. That being said, I would think if you step forward and attack the d-lineman then you will be out of position, unbalanced, and in prime position for the d-lineman to make a quick move on you. From what I have seen from the couch it’s best if you stay balanced on the line of scrimmage and get under the d-lineman’s pads. Keep your hands in his center mass. It looks like one of the techniques employed by the Warriors and other various teams is the punch technique. Another thing I notice is that the olinemen shouldn’t have their legs too wide apart. Other than that I have no clue.

  160. Jason December 10, 2008 1:33 pm

    No, what I’m saying is this: I’m the defensive coordinator, so I decide I’m going to widen out my defensive ends. (Most teams play their DEs pretty wide against UH.) So according to this scheme, how do you counter that? If you don’t widen your offensive line splits and you don’t backpedal to get between my ends and the QB, then my ends can just crash through, like Georgia did against us in the Sugar Bowl. But if you widen the splits, then I’m going to send linebackers up through the holes formed by the wider splits.

    My argument is that the scheme being presented here as I understand it doesn’t effectively counter wide ends at all. Sure, it would work for interior linemen, but that’s not the problem we have. Our interior linemen have done a great job all year, it’s the tackles that are our weak spot.

  161. las vegas December 10, 2008 1:34 pm

    Mr A-House,
    If players are taught to take a step or two, why not?
    I takes dicipline though, and we know about that, don’t we all?

    Vermicast is the bye product of the worms which is used for organic fertilizer so if that is what you want to do, it is the organic way to grow things. hydroponic is to use water to feed the plants. Plants grow better since they are fed when they need food. If interested we can talk more later.

  164. Jason December 10, 2008 1:36 pm

    What I’m trying to say is this — there’s nothing wrong with the backpedal. It’s where you position yourself, how you set your feet, how you distribute your weight, whether your leaning at the waist or bending your knees.

  165. djmitcho December 10, 2008 1:56 pm

    Wow, I just got some exciting news. I get to watch Jason Rivers play again starting in April. Jason Rivers signed to play with the Spokane Shock (af2). This makes my season tix worth even more!!! WooHoo!

  166. mauiwarrior December 10, 2008 1:56 pm


    I agree with you on oline blocking technique…….It just seems that our oline can’t execute the proper technique…and isn’t the punch a technique that is used by all oline men? isn’t the goal of blocking to keep the defensive line off of your body?….I’m sure the coaches would know of alternative techniques, but stepping foward in pass protection would not be one of them…..maybe in play action

  167. djmitcho December 10, 2008 1:57 pm

    My condolences go out to ST and his ohana and to Hawaiianbod’s ohana.
    Losing family is always tough.

  168. djmitcho December 10, 2008 2:01 pm

    The key to blocking on the o-line, especially pass blocking is to keep your feet moving and make sure you get an initial good first “punch”

  169. djmitcho December 10, 2008 2:07 pm

    Does anybody on the blog have a way to get in touch with Jason Rivers?
    I would be able to let him know that while he is in Spokane, there is definitely gonna support for him!

  171. d0ug18 December 10, 2008 2:19 pm

    Hey ST, just wanted to share a statement from the AFL (from their own website):


    Despite rumors and reports to the contrary, all AFL teams are continuing to work towards ArenaBowl XXIII. As it has previously stated, the AFL continues to work on long-term structural improvement options.

    Some of the options may impact the 2009 season. There is currently no timetable for an announcement of any kind. We remain grateful to our fans for their enthusiasm and patience.

  172. homey December 10, 2008 2:41 pm

    djmitcho – Maybe bigwave dave knows how to get in touch with JR.

  173. d1島 December 10, 2008 3:13 pm


    I share your frustration in watching Hawaii’s OL get “walked back” into our QB, however, IMHO it is an issue of poor implementation of a time-tested technique.
    As homey and djmitcho have posted, “low-man wins” and “you gotta move yo’ feet”!

  174. lavrat December 10, 2008 3:24 pm

    I agree. Good footwork, low center of base and good balance.

    Howzit Everybody,

    My thoughts on blocking is your first initial punch is what is the key to blocking. If you can get the D-End or D-Tackle off balance as they shoot off the line, you have a better chance of dictating what is going to happen.

  181. cocobean December 10, 2008 4:21 pm

    RE: Pass blocking. Larry Price had it right …physical superiority cancels all theory. After the QB, the highest paid position in the NFL is LT. There’s a premium on Big, Athletic guys that can play that position. Unfortunately UH has a shortage of big, athletic linemen. We got some tenacious and strong guys but not quick enough to handle the speed/athleticism of the better college DEs.
    One of the principles of the R and S is to get the ball out quickly. Neither Alexander or Funaki are particularly adept at this. UH has been using the shovel/screen passes and counter runs to slow the rush but this stategy seems to lose effectiveness as the game wears on. The Oline and QBs have got find a balance where the line gives the QB that extra 1/2 sec and the QBs get the ball out a 1/2 sec quicker.

  182. kama krab December 10, 2008 4:23 pm

    I think Pride should also chime in on this subject.

  183. cocobean December 10, 2008 4:26 pm

  184. kama krab December 10, 2008 4:28 pm

    Some of the best tackles we had off the top of my head was Adrein Klemm, Dane Uparesa, and Tala Esera.

    Tala and Dane could blow holes into some of the D-Ends coming off the corners. They were powerful and quick. The olinemen should look at film of them to get there techniques corrected.

  185. kbos December 10, 2008 4:32 pm

    Still can’t believe U.H. is favored in the Hawaii bowl. The psychology of Notre Dame willing to come out to the enemy’s home turf says that they are either an incredibly confident bunch of jocks or just terribly stupid to take a bowl game in paradise. I bleed green and follow U.H. religiously, but I have a feeling N.D. has something up their sleeves to win the game. Somehow, N.D. has more to play for than U.H. On the other hand, N.D. taking on a team not associated in a BCS conference makes you wonder if Charlie Weiss is indeed the great coach he’s supposed to be.

  189. LRob December 10, 2008 4:47 pm

    RE: Pass blocking. When they’re taught to backpedal, they’re creating a “pocket” that the QB is supposed to step-up into. Unfortunately, our tackles don’t have the footspeed and/or technique to move back fast-enough to stop the DEs. Also, I’ve noticed that Greg Alexander doesn’t really step-up into the pocket to give himself that extra second and so he either scrambles or gets sacked. INMO the O-line needs the most work. You can blame the play calling all you want, but if we can’t pass-block and we can’t run-block, how can we expect to consistently get 1st downs?

  190. cocobean December 10, 2008 4:54 pm

    d1shima, I’m a retired armchair QB. My only observation is we have less athletic players on the Oline than the Satele, Esara, Upuresa years. As far as blocking schemes, I can’t tell if it’s man to man, zone or slide. It just seems quickness is getting the better of our current line.

    LRob, I actually thought the overall blocking was improving, except for the last 3 possesions on the Cincy game. After the pick6, it seemed the whole O (including the coaches) reverted back to the protect the lead mode of the SJSU game. The team seemed tentative and overly cautious, was like each lineman was on his own individual island and not part of a complete scheme. Greg seemed to aiming some of his throws rather than having a fluid motion. That’s why Colt was great, he could fire up the whole team. To me that’s what was missing in the last 10 mins. …someone to lead and inspire.

  209. A-House December 10, 2008 7:19 pm

    Creating a pocket for the QB is good only if there is a pocket to step up into.

    Most of the time, the center and guards are being pushed back and what little pocket there was becomes a “vice” with the QB going down.

    I suppose reviewing film of the so called “great” NFL OTs may shed some light, but it will work ONLY if the OTs are willing to apply their abilities.

    Some of the “great” OTs at UH were constantly being called for “holding” – just what I saw through my binocs!

    My point of this is there’s gotta be some way to improve the blocking other than securing commits from “very good” OTs who usually commit to a BCS school. One would wonder why a “great” OT commits to a BCS school who primarily runs the ball while UH sucks wind.

    Each week the South Florida Sun-Sentinel identifies one matchup that Miami must exploit in their next game. This week they think that Bess needs to have a big game against the 49ers. I didn’t realize that Bess was so close to NFL records for undrafted rookie WRs!

    Dolphins must exploit
    WR Davone Bess vs. CB Nate Clements

    Bess, who caught 20 passes the past three games, needs four catches to become the second-most productive undrafted rookie receiver in NFL history, trailing Wayne Chrebet. Clements terrorized the Dolphins during his six seasons in Buffalo, but sat out last Sunday’s 49ers game after having a pin and two screws inserted into his broken right thumb. He might miss this one, too.

  223. Garret December 10, 2008 8:32 pm

    The “system” QB label really hurt Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell, even though he plays for a BCS conference team and his team was ranked #1 for part of the season. Last year JJ spoke up for Colt and I think that was a factor in Colt getting to New York (the Heisman polls changed immediately after JJ spoke up and the controversy started, Colt went from off the ballot to getting to go to New York)…Harrell isn’t even getting to go to New York even though ESPN has been using him in their Heisman commercials and his parents already bought tickets to New York!

    Texas Tech coach Mike Leach reacted angrily Wednesday when he heard that Red Raiders quarterback Graham Harrell was not one of the finalists for Saturday’s Heisman Trophy presentation in New York.

    “If Graham is not invited to the Heisman, they ought to quit giving out the award,’’ Leach said. “It is a shameless example of politics ruling over performance.

    Despite passing for 4,747 yards and 41 touchdowns and leading Tech to an 11-1 record, a No. 7 ranking and a berth in the Cotton Bowl, Harrell wasn’t one of the three finalists chosen to fly to New York for the ceremony.

    The finalists were Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, Texas quarterback Colt McCoy and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

    Since Harrell has been shown on ESPN’s Heisman commercials for nearly two weeks, everyone associated with Tech generally assumed his ticket to New York had already been punched.

    McNeill said Heisman organizers probably haven’t taken into account the plans Harrell’s family already made to fly to New York.

    “They’re going to tell him on a Wednesday [he’s not going],’’ McNeill asked. “What about his family? They planned on coming up there.

    “He’s been on their commercials for two weeks. They’ve got pictures of him, they’ve got highlights of him, they’ve got his picture in the Heisman room. I don’t understand that.’’

California also elects to base their selective scoring process on a curve that make their rankings seem exceptional. If they were to include all scores and judged them without a curve, CA would be even worst than Hawai’i. Many other states would follow suit.

    Don’t get me wrong, we could always do better. But, Hawai’i doing alright. No shame.

    What kind shibai is this? Shouldn’t all schools be required to submit with the same criteria? How can one score properly and have a fair comparison if they all do their own thing?

    Anyhow, good to see your post, makes me feel better.

  247. FloridaTed December 10, 2008 10:36 pm

    I hope Ryan gets it.

    Good night all, time for bed.

    Yup. California has a huge immigrant student population. CA does not include this demographic into their overall scoring process. (Why? What’s the benefit? dunno) Whereas, Hawai’i does. That’s why, overall, we seem to test low in math and English. For many of our immigrant students, English is barely a second language.

    I’m not sure where she got these figures from but, Donna also said with the scores submitted, per capita, Hawai’i has a very high percentage rate of students who go onto secondary education. Other states percentages may be higher but again, they’re based on selected students. Not on a total overall count like Hawaii. If it were, Hawaii would be one of the top states.

    Just a thought. How many of us BELIEVE this team could score a TD with just two minutes remaining in the game? Last year, I had no doubt Colt and company could accomplish the feat. This year, well, I’m not a believer.

  259. addahknowjoe December 11, 2008 1:23 am

    Flat out, I BELIEVE they can.

    The question is, do THEY believe they can.

    After Alexander got intercepted for a touchdown you could just see his confidence drain from him. With every incomplete pass, every sack, the touchback, it all culminated to the teams demise. The attitude quickly went from “play to win” to “play not to lose.”

    Was it inexperience? Nerves? No one to tell xander the, “shake it off, forget about it and we need you now” speech? Addahknow. It’s something the team needs to openly address, share, resolve and find a solution to.

    I still feel Hawaii hasn’t found itself. They’re still not firing on all cylinders yet. There’s so much talent and potential being left untapped this year.

    In the past, there were UH teams where you just KNEW “it ain’t getting any better than this brah!” But with this years team, they were stocked and loaded. For some reason, it just never gelled. That chemistry never materialized. That team light bulb never clicked to the “on” positon. Mind you, there were some flickers.

    I give these young men credit. They tried everything to find that light switch. I mean really, with all the set backs they’ve had to endure as team all season, the penalties, an all Big East officiating crew and not being at full strength for the game they still had the #13 team in the nation crapping their pants in the waning moments of the 4th quarter. Das all heart!

    It was a bitter loss to swallow. Hopefully, Hawai’i learned something from the Cincy’s loss and can apply it to the ND game. Perhaps carry it over to next season.

    And eh- next season begins bright and early Christmas morning!

    Detoxification for some people may be necessary because they have been addicted to substance such as alcohol or drugs. These individuals may have been abusing them for a long period of time, and if they don’t decide to detoxification some time in their lives it can lead to serious side effects or death Detoxification of any toxin can produce withdrawal symptoms that can be extremely uncomfortable, but in most cases, this detoxification is not life-threatening.
