Lineman commits to UH

Pierce Burton of Sacramento’s Rio Americano High has accepted a scholarship offer from the Warriors.
Burton is 6 feet 7 and 250 pounds. He played on the offensive and defensive lines, but, more than likely, he projects to play offensive tackle for the Warriors.

* * *

It’s an interesting debate as to whether a player should remain in school or apply for the NFL draft.
Then again, the local media should understand. Two of the top sportscasters — Kanoa Leahey and Robert Kekaula — opted to leave early. LIz Chun stayed, but then again, she’s a Rough Rider so she would have succeeded, anyway. Too bad it can’t be like it was for aspiring print journalists, who used to be allowed to work at The Advertiser and Ka Leo at the same time.

    Alright another OT.

  4. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:17 am

    hey numero uno, my first time..Liz and Al, you snooze you lose

  5. Stephen Tsai January 16, 2009 12:17 am

    Al and LizK were sitting in the lead and — whoosh — Ralph speeds into first place.

  6. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 12:17 am

    Welcome, Pierce!
    Nitey nite!

  7. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:17 am

    what i am not first!??

  8. Lost&Found January 16, 2009 12:18 am

    10 or <

  9. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:18 am

    and he is a freshman…alright, chance to develop him for 2010

  10. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 12:18 am

    I brushed my teeth.
    NOW I will snooze.
    Congrats, Ralph!

  11. Stephen Tsai January 16, 2009 12:19 am

    Of course, he’s confident enough to believe he can play within the next two years.

  13. Stephen Tsai January 16, 2009 12:23 am

    OK, I’m going to leave the office now.

  14. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:24 am

    listed at 230 lb TE by Scout and EspnU, also OT….I guess 230 okay for OT in HS but hopefully ST is correct that he is up to 250…take away the baby tsaiko fat and add muscle mass to become a 300 pounder…

  15. Lost&Found January 16, 2009 12:25 am

    With his height and hoops skills maybe he can develop into the next Travis LaBoy as a rush end.

  16. bighilofan2 January 16, 2009 12:26 am

    Hi Tsaikos. boy you’re fast.

    Pierce Burton

    Welcome to the Warriors!!

  17. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:27 am

    A-house you missed the boat again… the time you read this, Pierce Burton will be old news…..

  18. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:29 am

    ST be careful, the windward side is windy, JMxxxx reported electrical problems in Keolu earlier this evening….I hope the freeway and tunnels have lights

  19. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:33 am

    averaged 5 tackles per game with 5 sacks.
    played some basketball too.

  20. bighilofan2 January 16, 2009 12:37 am

    scoutdotcom says he’s 260

  21. bighilofan2 January 16, 2009 12:38 am

    Jordan Loeffler
    you’re D1 now. bend doze pipes! don’t let deze odda guyz get anyting on you!

    Go Warriors.

  22. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:40 am

    with all these new offers I wonder where Jantz Steele and Shane Austin really stand in the qb rotation. I know ST listed Shane as #3 going into spring but if they are not offering a scholie does it mean they are destined to the scout team and the incoming HS qb are projected to be ahead of them in the Fall.

  23. bighilofan2 January 16, 2009 12:41 am

    and when somebody tells you dat you can be dis or dat, you tell em dat i can be dat too, den go do what you like do best.

    but meantime, bend doze pipes, run da shots, and bend samoa pipes
    da best part is you can eat plenny plenny corn. make grandpa proud!

  24. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:42 am

    Ted Hendricks, aka the stork, Raider Nation history….play him on the outside and use his height on the defensive side

  25. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:43 am

    from the sacramento bee…

    Pierce Burton, Rio Americano

    T • 6-7 • 260

    • 2007 stats: None as a tackle.

    • Interest from: Stanford, Oregon State, Washington, Sacramento State, UC Davis, Utah.

    • The skinny: Was a blocking TE as a junior new to football before gaining 30 pounds. Growing into a Pacific-10-size tackle with superb grades, too.

  26. BigWave96744 January 16, 2009 12:44 am

    Awesome news….
    Any news if LaCount is enrolled this Spring?
    Happy 22nd Birthday to #22 Jayson “Baba” Rego

  27. bighilofan2 January 16, 2009 12:45 am


    our coaches gotta be more upfront with the QBs on being QBs. we get plenny QBs in high school playing odda positions now. Steele is a great athlete. play him in anodda position, whatevas, but play him.

  28. FloridaTed January 16, 2009 12:46 am

    Good specimen, only a freshman. How good is he really? Looks like our line depth is building.

    Good night gang, need some zzzz’s. Manuscript editing sucks.

  29. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:47 am

    sounds like an offensive tackle to me. i know one ex-all wac warrior tackle once told me that basketball players make great ot’s.

  30. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:48 am

    he was 230 in his junior year.

  31. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:48 am

    someone posted that Lacount will be here by this summer….mid year transcripts take time…my daughter graduated Dec. 2008 from UH West Oahu, and we requested transcripts to be sent to grad. school. transcripts application states it will take 8 to 10 weeks from commencement date to receive transcript validating graduation and all requirements met….

  32. BigWave96744 January 16, 2009 12:49 am

    Ooop.. Sorry.. Never see yesterday’s remarks by the Guru on Lacount..

  33. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:50 am

    ralph (re: #23)….sometimes one needs to read between the lines.

  34. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:50 am

    if his JC take as long as UH WO, he won’t know until the latter part of February before UH can validate that LaCount actually fulfilled all requirements, AA degree….

  35. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:53 am

    the mad stork eh?
    eh ralph, that’s going waaaay back.

  36. BigWave96744 January 16, 2009 12:55 am

    Called the Jedi Master today and told him that Steele, Shane, Greg Salas, and Rick Taylor have begun “Voluntary” workouts this week.

    Rick and Greg are roommates in Hawaii. They began working out in California immediate after the Fiesta Bowl, which Rick attended. Rick was sidelined with a torn pectorial muscle last spring, then had a hammy and groin injury in the Fall. This is Rick’s 4th spring at Manoa (he was an ’06 greyshirt). He’s been in the Run-N-Shoot since his playing days at Nease HS with Tim Tebow and knows the offense like the back of his hand… Wishing the best for #9 in ’09

  37. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:57 am

    sounded like lacount may have still been short a few courses.

  38. Ralph January 16, 2009 12:57 am

    Al reading between the lines by too many of us lead to rumors, and what someone says is taken as news…best to depend on Tsai. remember Keahi! Guava had some inside info but the tone of his insights and reports was more to put someone down while giving us the scoops…jmho..

  39. al ™ January 16, 2009 12:58 am

    it does take time in that our requirements here are tougher than the state of california’s public college/university system when it comes to accepting credits. i could never figure that one out.

    a course at a cali jc will be accepted by the university of cal schools such as ucla, davis, berkeley, et al but would not get past uh. it happened to me and it still is happening today.

  40. BigWave96744 January 16, 2009 12:59 am

    Ooop.. Sorry I “Texted” the great one

  41. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:01 am

    Al i read the history profile of the raiders…ha ha…the Raider nation needs a gunslinger for a qb like the days of stabler and lamonica

  42. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:01 am

    Al you posting from the cruise ship

  43. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:02 am

    in some cases the lines were filled in.
    but, yeah i hear you.
    i don’t like to discuss rumors. just putting two and two together from various sources. also, why would we recruit three qb’s?

    …as john fink says, “think about it”.

  44. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:03 am

    Bigwave he is on the road heading home, i hope he doesn’t try to text you and drive…he is a novice with his texting

  45. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:04 am

    ralph, stabler was one of my all time favorite raiders. i also,(showing my age) got to watch jim plunkett destroy cal in “the game” his senior year.

  46. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:05 am

    Tsai gave Steele a high rating for arm strength altho Stretch, I believe, mentioned he thought Steele’s arm strength was average…

  47. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:06 am

    lots of qb are good athletes, maybe an opportunity for Steele to become a slot or wr….

  48. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:06 am

    yup, ralphie.
    i thought both bay area teams missed the boat when they didn’t select colt brennan. i really thought that he would have gone to the niners, raiders, or the dolphins.

    ah, what do i know.

  49. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:08 am

    bigwave dave……whoa the surf is pounding brah.

  50. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:08 am

    Stabler has as many interceptions as he has Tds…never stopped him from going over the top and the raiders were winners during his tenure…

  51. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:11 am

    how fast is steele jantz?

    i think now, that brett leonard is in a great spot to be one of this year’s recruits to crack the starting lineup. the four hs olinemen will probably be a year or two away. altho i really like ma’afala’s chances primarily based upon his size, what little i saw of him, and because of his genes.

  52. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:12 am

    parts of north dakota at -39 degrees below….why would people want to suffer for 3 to 4 months in ice cold weather…imagine spring football practice without a covered dome…..

  53. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:20 am

    I thought June mentioned that it takes a while to develop an oL player and thats why he prefers HS OL recruits…Look at Hisatake and Leatigaga, the clock is ticking fast for these two and they haven’t made it to the field often enough…

  54. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:30 am

    well, leatigaga got injured his first year and redshirted. he is a defensive end who may see duty at dtackle this year.

    hisatake needs an opportunity. he didn’t play football until he was at san mateo jc. he played dtackle which was a wise move for him since it is less complicated than otackle. jj switched him because he has good feet and balance (you know the same “basketball players” make good otackles theory).

  55. Ralph January 16, 2009 1:35 am

    should have made vincent smalls a linebacker or strong safety

  56. labrat January 16, 2009 1:37 am

    Al ditto on Ma’afala. I like what I saw of him this year. I thought he was the sleeper in this class.

    Welcome Pierce. I know people like the OTs big but I prefer them to be agile and quick. I hope this guys a freak. You need a freak to counter a freak.

  57. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:37 am

    jj may have said that but then there were tala esera and samson satele both 4yr starters.

  58. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:40 am

    labrat…i freaking agree with you. i have to laugh because i too call some of these athletic marvels a freak.

    it just ain’t fair.

  59. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:44 am

    didn’t vincent smalls tryout for football after his basketball days?

    back when there was a mckinley reynolds who played running back and power forward at 6’3″ for the bows. i think he was also 26 yrs old too.

  60. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:46 am

    too bad hasiak doesn’t make another turnaround. he could be the next four year starter on the oline.

  61. al ™ January 16, 2009 1:47 am

    and mark sanchez declares for the draft inspite of pete carroll’s resistence. in fact, pete was so pissed he stormed past sanchez during the press conference.

  62. labrat January 16, 2009 1:51 am

    I guess all those coaches leaving had something to do with his decision. Pete has a lot of work to do next year.

    we actually started a rather informal weight loss contest again since last year the best contestant gained two pounds. so far only one contestant is officially entered since she was the only one to forward her weight.

    so officially speaking, mei ling is the only one and her weight is………..mmpht mmpty mmmphht.

    Good Morning Tsaikz!

    Hope all are hunkered down and ready for this passing storm. Got a good dose of rain this morning. Windz picking up.

  76. Garret January 16, 2009 6:10 am

    In fact I would have the utmost respect for a coach that closed the book on the recruits that did this. Same thing with recruits that have already made commitments elsewhere I wouldn’t want anything to do with them.


    UH has already paid for official recruiting visits this recruiting season for recruits that are committed to other schools. There is a recruit who is supposed to visit this weekend I believe who committed earlier this week to another school. If UH openly recruits players that have committed to other schools, then we can’t really complain about other schools recruiting UH commits.

  77. Garret January 16, 2009 6:11 am

    Welcome to the Warriors Pierce Burton!

    6’7″ OT who will enter as a freshman seems to be exactly what the team needs. I hope that the coaches can teach him the proper technique and that he puts in the work in the weight room and class room to develop himself to reach his potential.

  78. Garret January 16, 2009 6:13 am

    I hope that everyone makes it through the storm okay.

  79. Garret January 16, 2009 6:24 am

    The weird thing about Pierce’s recruiting is that ST’s article seems to indicate that he had no other offers. An athletic 6’7″ lineman who did well at a combine should have received more interest than that…but players slip through the cracks all the time.

  80. d1島 January 16, 2009 6:25 am

    Great Morning All!

    Terrific news about Pierce Burton! 🙂

    Dats wat I’m talkin’ ’bout… 6’7″, rangy, lots of room to “fill-in”, and the bonus of having been a bball player…

I was just going to my car for my poles when I woke up…

  86. bstunna2002 January 16, 2009 6:45 am

    It seems the JC guys are getting impatient waiting Williams will visit Idaho this weekend not to worried about it but if Memphis or one of those other schools or a PAC 10 school offers he could be gone. Seems like UCLA is trying to recruit all of the guys we have been recruiting since day 1 interesting I wonder if this is some Norm Chow justice for JJ being picked over him back in the day…

    you see what bstunna2002 is saying in 87? help cut the red tape by getting those Admin types in nice clothes to get off their duffs (no offense meant Duffer) and do what they can to help Warrior Nation.
    At the least give Tony and Coach the verbal ammo necessary to hold onto our commits.

    be safe tsaikos,

    interesting that there is so much traffic on the highway, when schools are closed, city and state offices closed, UH is closed…hmmmmm

    good news on the OT, interesting his size did not pop him on someone else’s radar, but be that as it may, good rack to work with.

    3 words of advice


    and when you learn that the next 3 words are


    and when you learn those, the next 3 are


    and when you learn that, tne next 3 are

    sorry i didn’t make it out to meet you; things were hectic in waikiki that day. but there will be a next time 🙂

  95. Bulla January 16, 2009 7:50 am


    I agree with you on this OT not being on the proverbial ‘big boy’ radar, but who knows, he could be a late bloomer. remember what one of the proverbial greatest basketball coaches to ever live, John Wooden said….

    ” i can teach’em to play, but i can’t teach’em to grow ”

    he went on to have a little success for UCLA back in the day, small kine legend i think, haha

  96. letsgowarriors January 16, 2009 7:51 am

    nice. is this surprise 1 of 2? im going to assume yes. that means OT competition will be between Kia, Hisatake, and Leonard this spring. Will Adrian Thomas make a push? Will Letuli get forced back to OT? Can Lacount make it to UH within the next 3 days?

  97. djmitcho January 16, 2009 7:54 am

    No probs. Like you said, next time.

  98. Stephen Tsai January 16, 2009 7:55 am

    It’s nice and sunny on the Windward side now.
    I guess that’s a bad omen, huh? Calm before the storm, and all of that.
    By the way, how come the Waimanalo homeless are always ignored? It was that way with the big New Year’s Eve flood in the 1980s. It’s that way now. There are a lot of homeless on the Windward side, but they seem to be left out of the warnings.
    But I digress.

  99. Stephen Tsai January 16, 2009 7:56 am

    I always complain about that to our editors.
    They always smile.
    Then I think they go to their computers, link to MapQuest and type in “Waimanalo.”

  100. Stephen Tsai January 16, 2009 8:00 am

    Re: Radar.
    I think a lot of the prospects in this class weren’t on the “radar” until after they verbaled.
    Not even UCLA was on any of the Long Beach Poly guys until the past couple of months.
    By the way, a lot of those things on Scout and other online scouting services are pretty dated. Burton hasn’t been a tight end for a year.

  101. royson16 January 16, 2009 8:04 am

    Here’s wishing Hawaii’s Tadd Fujikawa a good outing today at the Sony Open.With a 120 pm tee off this afternoon, continued best wishes of good weather, little wind and fortuitous bounces coming his way. Currently he is one under after the first round.And with projected cut at probably one or two under, a good showing today would do alot in getting his pro career in taking flight. So make us proud, Tadd.

  102. YpoWarrior January 16, 2009 8:08 am

    I wonder how the somewhat SHORT QBs (Nielsen, Shutter, Graves) will do with the TALL OL (Burton, Leonard, Loeffler, LaCount) that we’re starting to recruit? I guess if they can find the “passing lanes” they should do fine with tipped balls. But will they even be able to find their receivers? Just wondering…

  103. d1島 January 16, 2009 8:22 am

    re: Recruiting radar
    It seems like some scouting is done the way Burger King used to be purported to do their sight selection: just watch for where the next McDonald’s is opening then buy the property across the street!

  104. 702WarriorNation January 16, 2009 8:34 am

    so is this lazy method of some PAC 10 recruiting (poaching) or is it a confirmation on the recruits with talent and potential that UH coaches have been going after? Guess the latter eh?

    tipped balls are more of a throwing motion thing than a tall oline thing. GA’s passes weren’t getting tipped till he king of started to sling it side arm kind of the same problem Colt had against smart d- ends and dt’s. I don’t believe the qb height will really be a problem being that were in the shotgun they have a clearer picture of the field as opposed to being under center then trying to drop back to pass. Who ever heard of a 6’7 qb anyway…

    If wasn’t for ST I would jump to the other guys. They have been recruiting me. Tough being loyal.

    Welcome to the Warriors, Pierce. Gotta love your name. Sounds like a movie star.

  122. Momo January 16, 2009 9:35 am

    I am new at this and want to blog, but feel kind of out of place when most of tthe blog entries are going on a personal note. But I will get in there when I have some things I want to say. In a few months, I will have lots of time on my hand as they will (State) will pull a 12-52 ruling on me. Which means that all employees who have retired from the state and did not have a year of seperation of service will be terminated. It does not matter that I have given them 20 years after retirement. They have terminated these staff on the state and disstrict level and is now in the process of developing a plan at the school level and when this plan is in place, I will be terminated. So at this time I will be a more active blogger wfith time on my hand and I am a late sleeper and a early riser.

  123. d1島 January 16, 2009 9:39 am


    That’s a bittersweet comment you posted.
    While I look forward to reading more from you, it’s unfortunate that you are being forced to leave your job.
    Best wishes…

  124. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 9:46 am

    Momo- never mind what personal things we talk about- that’s just the background hum. You can start a topic (like you just did) and peeps will jump in. What is a separation of service?

    koakane- very still here now. Birds are singing. I just woke up again with the same pounding headache- shoulda been in my office at 8. argh. oops- the wind is picking up again.

  125. SteveM January 16, 2009 9:48 am

    Momo — just jump in and blog. You are always welcome. I don’t know the ruling, but I see a lot of part-time teachers in regular ed. and resource positions being terminated. As an outside observer, I see all the people that have actual daily contact with the students being axed while the admin and other expense positions that don’t require an Education degree grow…. but don’t get started…. sigh.

  126. labrat January 16, 2009 9:51 am

    Is there a freeze on hiring?? Would it hinder UH from filling the open coachs position??

  127. d1島 January 16, 2009 9:52 am


    Isn’t “separation of service” like what jmxxxx had with her Oceanic Cable last night? 😆

  128. labrat January 16, 2009 9:53 am

    Pierce can you shoot the three?

  129. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 9:58 am

    d1…. 😆

    OK. Wind is picking up again and clouds are gathering again.

  130. warriorfanny January 16, 2009 10:09 am

    by my count, 40 verbs this recruiting season–that prolly includes scholies for 2009, grayshirts for 2010 and walk-ons-and perhaps a few on the bubble, academically.
    Still a huge verb list that places Hawaii way out in front of WAC brethern Boise State, Fresno State, Nevada or La Tech.
    Pierce appears to be a project with his size and 1 star rating.
    One thing for sure, scholies and attrition remain fluid to player dynamics, injuries, academics and the lot.
    LOI day will begin to sort out the qualifiers but as we have learned from the past–until summer camp roll calls are made and affirmed, our 2009 roster looks to be an adventure of 11th hour surprises.

  131. d1島 January 16, 2009 10:14 am


    Radar shows you got incoming!

  132. labrat January 16, 2009 10:15 am

    lizk just talked to my sister who lives on the east side and she says it is sunny with no wind. get in your car and head out there to clear up your headache bwhaaaaaaaaa

    momo know how you feel and my sympathy to you. like peeps are saying just put down what you want, read, comment or lurk. finally you will feel like one of us and let me one of the first to welcome you to the blog. consider yourself a tsai-ko.

  134. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 10:22 am

    labrat is the paper the morning edition or home final ❓

  137. labrat January 16, 2009 10:28 am

    I subscribe to the morning edition but I just got the home final.

  138. Momo January 16, 2009 10:31 am

    Seperation of service is when some one retires from his state job, he or she must leave for what they call12-52 or one year before they can go back to work..It is a legal isssue which may cost the state much monies if they keep us on the staff.

    That or this issue may be the reason why they are terminated from the job. There are so many of us working and we are the strenght of the school which makes it run and wisth all of us being let go, it will cause such an inpact on the school level, they are now drawing up plans to replace us which should take the rest of this school year.
    Yes, I have worked for 20 years after retirement at Olomana school and is #2 with years of service to the school but it is an AG ruling and there is no grandfather clause for this issue.

  139. labrat January 16, 2009 10:32 am

    Correction I just checked all my deliveries are the home final. They usually come early in the morning.

  140. A-House January 16, 2009 10:35 am


    You are correct – Pierce is OLD news by now, but new to me!

    I wonder how you guys/gals can stay up so late. Me, if can sleep by 2100 hours, I’m gone!!

  141. d1島 January 16, 2009 10:54 am

  142. Kekoa January 16, 2009 11:14 am

    Thanks for arranging for our tickets at the Sugar Bowl last year. Are you and the Mrs. looking forward to the LV gathering?

    What do you think of the recruiting season. Isn’t it something? They all must feel like they’re at a real Cattle Call.

  143. lava January 16, 2009 11:15 am

    So who is the guy in school now, a walk-on, at 6’3″, who is supposed to compete for PT at DE and on special teams? I know the question came up after Miano’s radio interview with BC, but no one mentioned his name.

    Anyone know?

  144. SteveM January 16, 2009 11:15 am

    Don’t wait for this storm that is supposed to justify the amount of closings on Oahu.. you’ll starve to death.

  148. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 11:23 am

    Thanks, Momo. hmmm. Where’s the aloha? This is one area that gets my hackles up. When NCLB fed “standards” became a criteria, it (imho) failed to recognize the value of some of our best child-motivators in the DOE. Rather than look at results, it looked at compliance with fed standards for education and Poof.
    Now we have a bunch of young mainland “accredited” teachers that pass through our schools like they were revolving doors- never finding a place in the community, the kids’ minds and hearts, or their own sense of accomplishment.
    Meanwhile our seasoned teachers, who have hung in there way beyond their normal retirement time to save the school from crashing while replacements are found are dumped.
    Believe it or not, I’m not talking about Momo- I’m referring to what I have seen here on Kauai.
    ok…no wonder I have a headache… sorry for the rant. But I’m posting it anyway.

  149. Jason January 16, 2009 11:26 am

    Gotta like the revamping that’s going on with the offensive line. Lots of potential coming in. Looking forward to seeing them develop!

    And I’m never a fan of players leaving early. I didn’t think Sanchez should leave, too. There are a few exceptions, like I thought Davone was smart to leave early (until every other receiver left early too, and there was just too much depth). Wayne Hunter is an example of a guy I thought should have stayed.

    Part of it is getting better on the field, but part of it is maturing as a person, too. Colt said on the radio the other day that it can be tough for young guys without families like him, cause there’s so much off time and so many opportunities to get involved in things that they shouldn’t be involved in. Staying for your senior year, being a team leader that everyone looks up to — that helps in the maturity, helps prepare them a little bit.

    I think that relates to the other sports as well. Look at the Pacers’ Danny Granger, a guy who played two years for Bradley and two years for New Mexico. I remember watching that draft, thinking, “He’s still available, he’s still available, he’s still available!” Talented player (lottery quality), mature person (at a time when we were still reeling from the aftermath of the brawl in Detroit) — and now look, he’s having an All-Star season. We took so many chances on young, talented players, but they weren’t mature enough (Jamaal Tinsley, Shawne Williams). That’s why I liked how we picked up Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert. Not sure if they will pan out as well as I’d hope, but that’s more because I have no confidence in this coaching staff.

  150. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 11:27 am

    OK. now it feels like a stormy day- pelting rain, whistling wind.

  151. al ™ January 16, 2009 11:27 am

    too bad we don’t have a cc today.
    koakane is off.
    but, next week ….nah, that is just too cruel.

    so the high wind warning has been cancelled. should the state/city workers all be recalled they could still put in a half day’s work and save us poor taxpayers several million dollars of admin leave pay.

  152. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 11:28 am

    Having a nice cuppa kope to see if that will help. I hate taking analgesics…

    the last or first infamous tall and rangy offensive tackle was jim mills who at 6’9″ and about 276 lbs made up an oline of much repute.

    his teammates also included fellow nfl’ers kani kauahi and jesse sapolu. and of course two other trenchmen included two well known executive businessmen in jim donovan and keith ah yuen.

    the latter two will attest that if it weren’t for them the former three nfl’ers would not have made it.

  167. Momo January 16, 2009 12:04 pm

    Al and Liz
    Wait until you try my pork/squash/noodle dish…Yes, I’m for it at the cabana…I like to cook with the wok so I can produce many wok type of dishes.

    It is hard for us to go on trips since we are baby sitters for my daughter’s three kids. The only way we can go is a very short trip where we take in the game and come home. This is what we did for Alabama, Oregan and the sugar..We will try for Vegas is one of our favorite place.

  168. duffer January 16, 2009 12:08 pm

    what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! 2100 hours sleep time turns into 0230 hours the next morning – damn, no wonder I’m so tired when I reach home!


    Reveille is at 0500 hours or earlier – depends on the chickens by ST’s house – some start at 0230 hours – don’t they know BMNT is much later?

    ST’s surprise announcement, I’m sure does not include Pierce Burton – WELCOME PIERCE TO THE WARRIOR FAMILY AND WE LOOK FOR MANY GOODS THINGS FROM YOU!!!


    first BIG MAN in NFL was Bob St Clair of the 49ers – all 6’9″ and around 300 + lbs in the early 1950s.

  170. jm2375 January 16, 2009 12:17 pm

    Ralph, re #155 – I saw that, but also saw that someone was cautioning people from buying big ticket items from them (all sales final, no refunds, no exchanges, even if it’s defective). So far, their prices aren’t that great. We’ll see.

    I weighed in at my doctor’s office at 174 in 9/07. Before our recent Vegas trip I was at 152.6, and I’ve been working hard to undo the 8.5 pounds of gain I had in a 5-day period (Vegas and buffets in San Diego), and am back to 153.6. So, I lost slightly over 20 pounds. However, some of that was before the Tsaiko weight challenge started…

    I actually don’t eat much less now but I work out whenever I think I’ve eaten enough to need exercise to counter it. So, I work out basically every day!

    The really sad thing about Momo’s forced retirement is that he’s been doing teaching jobs that most people do not want to do. His work at Olomana and another special school has meant that his students have been prisoners, students that have been kicked out of public schools, at-risk kids, and kids that are in a drug addiction program. He was attacked once by a kid with a hoe or pick (I can’t remember exactly right now) and the guards didn’t get there quick enough to prevent the first attack.

    The state doesn’t have to give him any benefits (he already has his medical benefits and he doesn’t get any sick leave or vacation time), he works a ton of unpaid time, and he actually makes money for the school with his hydroponics program. I’m saddened that he won’t be able to do that job anymore and wonder who will want to teach the prisoners and other at-risk kids now.

On January 23rd the Los Medanos sophomore will visit the University of Idaho campus and tour the Vandal program.

    This link is down now, but Google saved the important part of the article–I like their term for Bess.

    Davone Bess became Mr. Dependable this past season. Filling in capably for Camarillo, Bess became a sure handed target that Chad Pennington looked at often.

  192. el guapo January 16, 2009 1:06 pm

    How many recruits are brought in for visits each recruiting season?

    Look at it from the kid’s perspective. If they commit here, then another school wants to pay for them to visit their school, why not take the trip just to see more of the world? Although I don’t know what you get to see in Moscow.

    ok, first things first. vegas was most interesting even tho made a few more cd’s that will mature before the end of the year. construction has slowed down and no work at the stardust or new frontier (which i could see from my suite). also a time share looked like it was on hold too.

    plumber #1 and #2 are coming to set up remodeling work for bathroom #1 and #2. actually, i don’t know why i say remodeling when i neva actually finish them for over 25 years.

    Garret ~ Momo’s position can never be filled or replaced. They will put those kids at an even greater risk now. We as a society will suffer from it as these kids get released.

    It will take private funding to carry this program, and I see too many more ‘special’ needs that are of a higher priority waiting for that funding.

  199. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER January 16, 2009 1:15 pm

    Ok, Garret- I was trying to stay CALM but here we go again.

    I’m going to stick my neck out about “at risk” kids and betcha that if they were gathered up and tested by the likes of Dr. Mel Levine, we would find that these kids were not given the chance to succeed and fell victim to the “one size fits all” philosophy of education.
    If the child cannot fit, he/she is dumped as a failure. In reality, these kids are our key to IMPROVING the way we teach and increasing the success rates for our kids.

    What if the current attitude in field of education was applied to the field of medicine?
    “Oh sorry, I used all the medicines and techniques I knew about but they didn’t work for all these sick people so I guess they can just die.”

  202. whitey January 16, 2009 1:20 pm

    on the surface, visitation from recruits who have committed to other school appears to be a waste of time and money. it may hold true for some, but in today’s world it is very hard to find people doing the right or common sense thing. if you promised a recruit a visitation, then fulfil your obligations because you believe in basic common sense of treating people exactly how you want to be treated. then you get people who move from the mainland, like my neighbor, who has no common sense or manners. i ask him why he came onto my property without my permission to cut some trees to improve his view. answer?? because you weren’t at home. typicalo gd hao– from the mainland and then they wonder why people don’t appreciate them. arsehole to the max.

  203. Garret January 16, 2009 1:24 pm


    I know that the story has been around on Williams, but I couldn’t remember it being posted here. I agree with you that it is odd that he’s comparing Idaho and Hawaii! Also, if he’s from Florida and has a South Florida offer, then I cannot understand him going to Idaho for a visit!

    Kama Bailey is at Idaho and did a great job as a kick/punt returner.

  206. Garret January 16, 2009 1:28 pm


    I do not disagree with you. However, some of the kids that Momo teaches are currently incarcerated for murder and other serious crimes…however, they will be released when they turn 19, so teaching them a skill in which they could hopefully find a job (like agriculture/aquaculture) could hopefully improve their lives and prevent them from going to prison as an adult.

    Garret- understood. In hindsight, could these kids have chosen better for themselves if they had been effectively educated when they were small?

    This theme has been my whole experience with #2 and #3 sons. Every day has been a breath-holder that they would not end up in a situation without a Momo to give them hope, skills and self-confidence.

  214. Bulla January 16, 2009 1:36 pm


    i agree with you, it is a ‘meat market’ out there and these young athletes fall prey to a lof of deception and miscommunication. i feel that hawaii athletes are probably the most inexperienced when it comes to recruiting because of our proximity to the mainland. also, it’s more costly to have a kid from hawaii to go on an official visit to the mainland.

    the challenge that i have, and IMHO, many times UH will hold off on the scholarships and entice local athletes to ‘walk on’, via the rich miano story, and they will be rewarded (hopefully) down the road with a scholarship. that way, UH can get a bigger bang for the buck, knowing local kids can still live at home, go to school, and PUSH the scholarship to perform better.

    now we do have hawaii kids on scholarship, but in years past, it was mostly mainland kids getting the scholies and the local kids fighting for whatever they could get…but things seem to be changing for the better.

    any kid that can get a FREE education should take advantage of that……every time! we just need more kids in college getting degrees, bottom line.

    jm2375- In order to be able to WATCH WARRIOR FOOTBALL (on topic caveat) effectively, a good viewing device is recommended. Unlike the old analog days when a 19″ Emerson cost $350 and lasted for 15 years, we are in the age of “disposable technology” where every year there is a greater and more awesome “next thing”. The investment can be huge (for me) or moderate.
    I like gigi’s giant Sony for picture quality but opted to spend $600 for a modest 37″ Toshiba from Sears that enables us to watch FOOTBALL and other entertainments satisfactorily.

    Liz – good thing I have 8 months before football starts. Of course, they haven’t started broadcasting in HD yet. Wonder when that’s gonna happen. The bigger the screen, the worse the picture looks when it’s not HD. I’m still mad with KHNL/KFVE for swapping out the KHNL HD channel for KFVE HD with DishNetwork. I never got a response from email I sent them. Dish told me it was probably a contracting thing.

    BTW, the Sony I keep complaining about is 20 yrs old and cost around $400 (I think). We are not looking for something that’s really cutting edge, but will give us a good value for years to come.

    First USC lost both its offensive coordinators and defensive coordinators to U-Dub. Then, they hired a QB coach that was going to call the plays instead of their new offensive coordinator. Now, that QB coach they just hired might leave (did he even start at USC yet?) for the NFL.

    On the same day that starting quarterback Mark Sanchez announced he was making himself available for the NFL draft, recently hired quarterbacks coach Carl Smith interviewed with the Cleveland Browns.

    Coach Pete Carroll confirmed a report on the (Cleveland) Plain Dealer website that said Smith interviewed with new Browns Coach Eric Mangini. Smith’s son, Tracy, a former Utah State assistant, also has spoken to the Browns, Carroll said.

    Less than a week after the Trojans’ Rose Bowl victory over Penn State, Carroll announced that Smith would replace Steve Sarkisian as quarterbacks coach and that he would also call plays.

    Looking at Washington State’s schedule, I was surprised to see that they start with 3 home games. That means that 6 of their last 9 games are on the road, with 5 out of 6 on the road. That seems pretty imbalanced of a schedule to me.

    However, that does benefit Washington State to start the season. They don’t have to worry about going on the road and their home game against Stanford will help them get ready for UH. Their home game against UH will definitely prepare them for their home game against SMU, given the similarity between those offenses.

    The Sept. 5 season opener against Stanford in Pullman marks the first time since the 2000 season WSU has opened against a conference opponent.

    The 2009 slate will be the first time since 1978 that the Cougars have played its first three games in front of their home fans.

    Good afternoon Tsaikos…

    I can’t believe the way Pete Carroll treated Sanchez today. Turns out he’s on schedule to complete his Bachelor’s Degree this Spring. So now instead of returning 10 starters on offense (according to Phil Steele), USC now only returns 9 starters. Give me a break. The kid won him a couple PAC-10 Championships with all the BCS cash that goes with it from the Rose Bowl and he treats him like crap when he decides to graduate and move on with his life.

    What’s happening to wonderful people like you is living proof of how broken our entire system of education has become, not only in Hawaii, but across the Nation.

    More and more people, not born into fortunate circumstances, are already starting 20 yards behind in the race of life. Subsequently they’re further and further marginalized, pushed to the fringes of society, where they end up pushing back, very often as criminals.

    To remove even one teacher like you, for whatever reason, will cost us, as a community, infinitly more in the long run, than whatever was paid to you during your entire life.

    Every society has the criminals they deserve.

    Bulla, the only thing is, I’m not sure that Miano was talking about Eljae Faoagali. I hope so.

  274. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:07 pm


    that would be a decent celebrity ‘beef’, lyle vs. guy……better yet, a coed tag team match, but who’d match up with lyle….how about pamela young? haha, now we gotta deal with tim tindall, oh boy.

  275. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:09 pm


    well, only rich knows….the more the merrier, kind of like in the playground when bruddah only get 5 jolly ranchers left in the paper wrapper, but get 10 guys making buddy buddy with him.

    throw the five up in the sky, run for da merry go round and yell


    put all the Dline guys on the field, last 4 standing start the first game, and run for the merry go round

  276. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:11 pm


    what was the cut, 1 over?

    what about the other hawaii guys?

    dean wilson gotta be sick…bogey 18 and miss the cut by 1

    maclachlin out, chen out….the survivor still in TAD!!!! 🙂

  279. wafan January 16, 2009 6:18 pm

    I hope everyone had a good and safe day without too much wind and rain.

  280. lava January 16, 2009 6:27 pm

    Dean Wilson has to be double sick — he got a bogey on the 18th each day. I’d expect any golfer of a 20 handicap to par the 18th, so for Dean to bogey, ugh!

    The cut was +1, and Dean knew he needed to par to make the projected cut, and he still didn’t get it done. I like Dean, but this is disappointing.

    Parker played ever worse.

  281. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:27 pm


    better safe than sorry, but slight overkill i would say. was it an over reaction by the ‘powers that be’? i don’t know, what if it really hit, it would have been utter chaos.

    life’s too short, be safe not sorry i say….but you know that all the weather we get here is headed on the famous Pineapple Express straight to you…….enjoy the white stuff……….sorry 🙁

  282. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:32 pm


    18 plays dog left, and some guys get cute and cut the corner. from what i read, it said he was in a fairway bunker….the one on the rt. corner…dancing with the devil, should have laid up to set up the secon shot and play for par…..get on in 3, 2 putt, in the clubhouse and playing on the weekend.

    i don’t know, i wasn’t there, but the 2nd day he should have made an adjustment on the course management side of the ball. i’ve seen Vijay Singh pull his drive over the trees, over the 10th fairway against the bushes…..and put his second shot on the green…..that’s why they’re on the inside of the ropes, haha

    do you golf? i used to play a lot when i was the tommy hilfiger rep and about 50 lbs smaller….still got the custom Titleist clubs with the original 975J driver…thank you Tiger, haha

    when i stopped playing i was a card carrying 3 handicap and read more greens than good books…..those were the days my friend…..we though they’d never end……….la di da…….

  283. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:32 pm


    now the only greens i read are in my salad……haha

  284. wafan January 16, 2009 6:35 pm

    Yeah. Thanks. NOT!

    With a higher pressure over Oregon and Washington the weather is being pushed northward into Canada. Yay!!!

    We supposed to have some sun but ended up with nothing but grey all day long. Better than rain or, worse, snow.

    It is a dry cloudy day. HA!

  285. Bulla January 16, 2009 6:39 pm

    it’s been fun boyz,

    time to leave the lovely confines of my cubicle/office/cave, and venture to the streets of waikiki. mrs bulla is in maui for the weekend so i have all kinds of ‘MANLY’ activities lined up…..

    you’d be jealous….. i am going to………

    prepare for leading a men’s bible study tomorrow morning,

    coordinate helpers for our food distribution at church tomorrow mid morning,

    practice for leading a class tomorrow night in getting leaders ready for a Men’s Conference on Pro Bowl weekend, where i am trying to get Curt Warner to speak……..

    and then on Sunday…….church, church, lunch, nap, church

    so the secret is out, haha

    My neighbors are being shipped out to Iraq soon. They were renting the house next door and were exemplary representatives of our armed forces — polite, clean, quiet, and very respectful.

    I know I am older than they are (young punks in their early 20’s — HA!) but did they really have to call me sir and help me carry out the garbage? Dang! Okay, I admit it, I got spoiled.

    Anyhow, one guy is going for his 3rd tour, the other two are going for their 2nd. I sure hope they are going to be safe and return home perfectly healthy.

    Bravo to our young men and women who faithfully serve and protect us!

    And to the old futs, too, thank you!

  287. lava January 16, 2009 6:55 pm

    I bought a great new set of clubs about 5 years ago, and probably only played once or twice since.

    The 18th plays longer if you hit it right, but a decent golfer should still get par. Tad hit it to the right bunker today and still made par.

    On the left are trees and bunkers, but I regularly see guys still make par.

    If you KNOW all you need is par, I’d expect a guy to hit a straight 3 wood and just play it safe. Dean will lose sleep tonight over that hole.

  288. Bow Hunter January 16, 2009 7:10 pm

    While hunkering down today, I went looking for #33 Bobby Nash. Found him in Shiga, Japan with team called the Lakestars. Here’s the team website.

    Kind of long because its a translated site for us gaijin, but a fun site to browse.

  289. A-House January 16, 2009 7:28 pm


    You lucky for that kind of neighbors.

    Ours, to the contrary, are loud, smoke a lot(wind carries smoke right into our house), have parties late into the morning, constantly block our driveway, etc.

    Does not make a difference if Marines or Sailors – same smell.

    Interestingly, they see my “bird” sticker and they could care less.

  290. A-House January 16, 2009 7:32 pm


    Hmmm, a 3 handicapper.

    Maybe I should take lessons from you, but be aware, that this ole dog is very hard to change when it comes to my lousy stance, slice, grip, keeping my head down, etc.

    I always hit behind the ball and very seldom is low and long. My forte is “sky high” golfing.

  291. wafan January 16, 2009 7:47 pm

    A-House . . .

    Sorry to hear of the disrespect you receive. Those guys should know better! Maybe Mrs. A-House should go over and knock some heads around.

    The worst neighbors I had here are a toss up between the college students from St. Martin’s, and the Vietnamese family. Both could not keep quiet and kept shouting at each other all day and night. Heck, their parties were loud and obnoxious, too.

    Caught one of thecollege kids throwing their dog poop over the fence into my yard one day. Picked it up, wrapped it in newspaper and delivered it back to them at their front door. The kid who answered the door was surprised. He did not say a word except to thank me for returning the poop. Problem solved — no more poop over the fence, and they moved in a week or so.

    I am going to miss those Special Forces guys. Who is going to take out my trash?

    Mrs. Momo was at the last UH game in Vegas, but Momo had a class reunion then. They really have had bad luck with road trips together! I’m hoping that their luck is better in 2009 for road trips. They went to plenty of winning events in Vegas for WAC volleyball (that was a long time ago before the MWC people split) and other sports, though.

    By the way, I’ve only seen one episode of CSI: LV, the one where the writers of 2.5 men wrote the episode. I’m sure that was quite different than a regular episode, but I never had time to watch any of the others.

    Despite being well after 4:15am here, it’s time to go get my car out of the parking lot at work. I’m not looking forward to seeing how much the towing cost is gonna be.

    I suspect the starter has finally worn out or some type of faulty cable/circuitry. You hear the clicking kine noise but the engine is no go. Lights/radio all work fine.

    just joking. i dunno about cars, but sounds like a starter, or battery.

  349. al ™ January 17, 2009 3:06 am

    could be a weak battery. not enough juice to the starter. try get a jump first.

  350. Pomai January 17, 2009 3:08 am

    CRW just to be sure, just go under the car, and check the wire from the starter to the battery, if it is lose then it won’t start also sometimes just hit the dang thing a few time and see if will start, sometimes the armature gets stuck.

    what kind of car do you have? sounds like the starter solenoid, if you have a Ford the solenoid should be near the battery on the inside fender well or if you have a GM it should be mounted on the starter and like Pomai said tap on the solenoid.

    #317 = play racquetball, great cardio, eye to hand, and the court is 20 ft wide and 40 ft long, which makes it 6 2/3 yds wide and 13 1/3 yd long. WOW, talk about explosiveness….

    ask Coach Chris Brown, or former UH RB John Kauka how explosive it is. they had a lot of fun playing with yours truly for many years…..2 on 1, and i NEVER lost to them.

    the beast was a singles state champion in the Men’s C division in his sophomore year at st louis. in kauai he had about 12 men in his division and he came out on top. in the championship game he beat a former all state qb/utility player from kaimuki hs, travis mckay. pretty funny stuff.

    at weber state there are some rb courts, and when his ankle is 100% he’ll be back playing… is a fun sport to play, a lot of side to side movement, forward and back, all on your toes like a cat.

    Gotta like the revamping that’s going on with the offensive line. Lots of potential coming in. Looking forward to seeing them develop!

    And I’m never a fan of players leaving early. I didn’t think Sanchez should leave, too. There are a few exceptions, like I thought Davone was smart to leave early (until every other receiver left early too, and there was just too much depth). Wayne Hunter is an example of a guy I thought should have stayed.

    Wayne Hunter got drafted in the 3rd round, 1 pick after Vince Manuwai.
    I think that’s pretty good, considering all the acolades that Vince was receiving.

    Also if you remember, Wayne didn’t play in the Hawaii Bowl in 2002.
    Some speculate it was due to academics.
    Going out his Junior year may have been the best option for him

    Finally back home with car in hand!

    bighilofan, Pomai, al and HiFlyer: Thanks for all the suggestions.

    The battery terminals were so wickedly corroded that not enough juice was getting to the starter. Looks like the battery needs to be replaced pronto.

    I actually got off of work a little after 2:00am. None of my coworkers leaving the center at that time had jumper cables on them, so I hitched a ride home so I can grab some things (tools, phone numbers, etc.). It wasn’t until I went back to work (arrived a little after 7:00am) that the company mechanics were on duty and were able to give me a jump, and away I went. From what they ascertained, the alternator et al. were within normal parameters.

    …..despite this I did attract suspicion amongst some of the head honchos since I don’t work weekends and was walking around the center simply wearing a hoodie and jeans (compared to the company uniforms that all the Saturday drivers wear). Of course once I explained my position and standing within the company, they became more understanding and tracked down the company mechanics for me who of course have jumper equipment laying around.

    I drive a small Corolla. Do you know how compact everything is under the hood? So many lines and cables weaving in and out of that small space I couldn’t even see where the one of the lines from the battery went (assuming to the starter, couldn’t even follow it all the way).

    Anyways, thanks again.

  382. Kekoa (iPhone) January 17, 2009 7:47 am


    Same thing happened to me once upon a time. Jumped in my ka’awela, turned the key, heard da clicking sound, no start. Lights looked dim. Radio was dead.

    Had an old pair of jumpers, but I just got back from a mission and the last of the ops crew to leave the company area. Called AAA and waited 2 hours for him to come give me a jump that took 2 seconds!

    Guy sez, your battery clamps and terminals are corroded. Mix some baking soda and water in an empty can and brush it on. As it activates and dissolves the corrosion, just wipe it clean. Put a thin layer of grease on the terminals, put your battery on a charger and your battery should be good to go.

    That battery lasted me another year before another cold snap hit the area and sapped the cranking power during one last start…that’s when you realize if it’s rated for 36 months, they mean it…

  383. koakane™ January 17, 2009 7:49 am

  387. Kekoa January 17, 2009 8:33 am


    Got up early. Neighbor’s coffee was perking and the smell was so ono it woke me up thinking maybe pops had put a pot on. No such luck, had to go brew my own.

    Meanwhile, my main computer was down so was checking the blog on my iphone while the virus scan was running. Diana’s laptop is set on permanent “NO TOUCH – NO BELONG!” and Kimana’s takes a Pentagon Password for access. An older desk top is so slow the Sunday paper would show up before the home page came on.

    But it’s a brand new day! Sun is shining, birds are chirping! Life is good on da ceded lands! Bible study starts soon, see ya!

  388. koakane™ January 17, 2009 8:40 am

    Sacramento Gold. Reading a lot about recruits from the Sacramento area and really happy to hear UH is tapped in. The nation is talking about Sacramento Grant beating LB Poly this yeara for the state champs. They play some great college football in the Sacramento Valley and except for Sac State, players must leave home. UH has always done well with JC players from the area and now they really need to deepen the ties with the High Schools. Some exciting players coming out of there, and seem to be positive towards the Hawaii direction. Keep it up coach!

    Nice blog, I just stumbled on it and I’m already a fan
    I hope it’s not too brash but I have just begun blogging
    my own weight loss(I lost 30 pounds in a month, so pretty good
    , and I was wondering if you could share
    the weight loss products I used for your blog readers.
    My most recent post is fast weight loss diets
    If you would be willing to do a link trade
    that would be excellent because I want to discuss my weight loss success
    with as many people as possible. If I can lose weight then
    any one can. Whatever you do, never give up and you WILL
    meet all your weight loss goals!
    much thanks for reading,
