Middle man

Blaze Soares appears to be comfortable in his new role as the middle linebacker. The move enables Soares to make use of his lateral range. He also will assume a greater leadership role. Soares is considered to be the Warriors’ best blitzer. But even at middle, there are enough schemes to allow him to storm the backfield. By the way, according to defensive coordinator Cal Lee, Soares’ GPA is 3.7.

Defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga and defensive end Paipai Falemalu did not practice today because of sprained ankles. They vowed to practice tomorrow. The Warriors work out from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. tomorrow, then depart for Dallas in the afternoon.

Jovonte Taylor was back at practice today, apparently having recovered from a sprained ankle. But all signs point to Royce Pollard starting at right wideout. Greg McMackin said it will be a game-day decision as to who will be the featured kick returner. The candidates are Taylor, Pollard and Kealoha Pilares.

    Carried over from the yesterday’s blog:

    Earlier this morning, I clicked on the link to the Centennial Celebration Gala in the current issue of the H-Mail.

    First of all, the event is on Wednesday, December 2, before the Wisconsin game. Second, individual tickets are $300 or, if a group puts together a table of ten, then it’s $250 per ticket.

    Much as I would like to attend the event, it’s not financially realistic to think about doing so. However, if some of the folks ariound here who will be attending could provide the rest of us with a fairly detailed description of what went on, we would appreciate it very much. Perhaps the program itself could be recorded and placed on the WB setbsite

    CHANGE OF SUBJECT: Last fall about a dozen of us Libras (September 22 – October 21) had a collected celebration. We brought a cake. Any interest in our doing this to the Fresno T-Gate?

    During the preseason workout, much time was spent on how to get ready for this season and one of the topics was about running uphill on wilahemia (spp??) drive. run till you puke theory. didn’t know how walter peyton trained, but Coach Singletary took it to heart and now this is one of the major reason for their success on the field. can the warriors handle this kind of “pain” during the off season??????

    49ers Head Coach Mike Singletary knows a little something about pain. After all, the Hall of Fame Linebacker inflicted pain on NFL running backs for his entire career. But he also watched some of the greatest players in NFL history inflict incredible pain on themselves during the off-season, in order to give themselves an edge on the playing field.

    Walter Payton and Jerry Rice famously included grueling hill runs as part of their training regimens … hills that pushed players to their limits, and made most men puke before reaching the finish. Now, taking a page from their book, Singletary has incorporated a 45-foot-high, 45-degree hill – known simply as “Pain” into 49ers Training Camp:

    “There’s something about the hill,” Singletary told reporters back in mid-March after the 49ers first minicamp and the hill was on full display for the first time. “It’s beautiful to look at but what it’s going to do for our guys is it’s going to bring about something that you can’t really get in the weight room, something that you really can’t get on the track.”

    “All the guys that I know that worked out on a hill, they were a cut above some of the other competition around the league and they had a long playing careers,” Singletary said. “So I’m excited about the hill and it just adds another dimension to our workout.”

    If anyone ever wonders what a game film looks like, tune in to the PSU-Weber St. videocast. I think this guy may be shooting for the team because he goes to the clock before every play and then goes to a full 22 shot.
    Good way to see RnS receivers run routes as we all know who is coaching them!

    In the case of Mana Lolotai being replaced in the Central Arkansas game it was a good coaching decision. From my seat Lolotai was always a step late, very unsure on making a commitment. I believe he left with only 1 assist or 1 tackle. In the middle this is unacceptable.

    For Blaze moving to the middle I think it’s getting the best LB where the biggest impact can be made. This way #53, my favorite from 2007, can cover the middle, the left & the right. Moving RJ to the outside is not a bad thing.

    He meant for us to be well stocked in case we lost all our money in the Casino’s. His refrigerator reflected the typical bachelor’s kitchen. Lots of Beer, chips, chip dip and vienna sausage. The “Patron” was kept in the Freezer.

  89. A-House September 26, 2009 2:25 pm


    Yes, running up Wilhelmina Rise is very TOUGH and it will give any coach a good sense of the true conditioning of his/her players.

    My guess is that nearly ALL Warrior players will NOT make it half-way up the hill because they lack the mental toughness, strength, stamina, and discipline to push themselves.

    No flight of stairs or little grass hills on campus or running up stadium like seats can compare to running Wilhelmina Rise.

    I speak from experience as I used it to train for the Honolulu and Windward marathons. My best single run was about 3/4 of the way up and I had to stop; totally winded and exhausted. I was 42 years old at that time.

    Some may say that this is like “torture”, but it is conditioning. UH volleyball team used to do it and I hope that continues under Coach Wade.

  90. A-House September 26, 2009 2:30 pm

    Hope his great GPA will force the NCAA to grant Blaze that extra year on medical hardship and play in 2010.

    He can secure the LB corps with many underclassment surounding him.

    On another note, hope that Mana Lolotai can learn and become a valauble contributor later this year and in the future.

    Chinese buffet for dinner tonight. Pretty decent place. Too bad KK did not have the time to go there while he was here. Their Snow-Crab legs, oysters, clams, shimp, and mussels looked like they were happy to have survived KK’s visit.

    And, yes. The ice cream had all kinds of toppings, too!

    It must be wonderful to have access to all that wonderful seafood.

    You know something…..I rarely see KK bring anything to his mouth that’s not in a bottle. Maybe it’s just the timing, but I don’t remember seeing him eat anything on the trip.

    You know, you are right. I never saw him eat anything either. Just green bottles. He did ask for jelly, though. But then, last time I saw the jelly I am not sure it was even openned. Jelly and beer?

    As for the jelly, it may not have been for consumption. I tell you….on this trip, I saw KK do things that people get sent to the vice principals office for. It’s a good thing he retired when he did. Who knows what he’s picking up from those kiddies.

    [SATURDAY – DAY 6 of 11.
    Port of Mazatlan, Mexico 11.49º N, 160.25º W 2057 MDT]

    Good day everyone, especially fellow Tsai-ko Cruisers!

    Mazatlan is a popular port of call for all cruise lines so the facilities, excursions and tourist vendors are well established. The harbor is a study in contrast–low hills, curving shoreline and rock prominence on our port side and container yard and bustling city, hotels and tall buildings as far as we can see on the starboard side.

    Did not venture past the tourista terminal or take a shore excursion due to the same affliction that prevents me from attending most morning events at home. But there are some very attractive locations and events in this highly developed city. Peaches and I were offered a FREE visit to a local hotel, meal, drink, use of the hotel’s 5 massive pools and beach (had pix)-plus they would put us on a cab there free and give us a voucher to catch a taxi from the adjoining shopping area whenever we want. Only thing they ask is that we take a guided tour of the property. Finally figured out they were probably trying to sell time shares or something. I’ll give you the web site URL of the property if you wish…I haven’t checked yet. Legitimate ship excursions of this day-at-a-beach-resort type (sans sales pitch) cost $60-70 per person. Then the next similar offer we had was for another hotel but they’ll pay us $50 cash if we go…this one set off the alarm bells. 😐

    Today’s snapshot of shipboard life: similar to previous port days except the passenger Talent Show is tonight (remember signup/audition was earlier this week)

    …and the CHOCOHOLIC BUFFET is tonight at 2230 in the deck 5 midship dining room! Cruisers can visualize a major dining room with the entire center filled with chocolate sculptures and rows and rows of everything that can be made or could be covered with chocolate. Some chocolate buffets are grander than others, but chefs and staff take pride in their creations–which are quickly demolished by passengers with their plates, bowls, and plastic storage bags lined up from deck 7. 🙂

    Tonight’s professional theater performance is a performance by international singer Elvy Rose.

    Next port: Puerto Vallarta. ETA 0800 Sunday

    The Wahine go on the road to LaTech with a match on October 1 and then back New Mexico State on October 3. Will they be at the football game on the September 30th? Would be nice to have eighteen Warrior Fans cheering them on.

    Earlier tonight players on men’s and women’s basketball teams, the men’s volleyball team, the women’s softball team, and the football Warriors watched the Wahine blow out Idaho.

    Has anyone here ever attended an away women’s volleyball match during the regular season? What’s the size of the crowd and its demographics? I bet that the average age of the fans at Wahine home matches has to be close to 80 years – and at least two-thirds are women.

    With the exception of NMSU and Fresno, who both typically reach 1,000+ on average nights, I wouldn’t be surprised if the crowds for the away women’s volleyball matches is no more than a couple hundred. In many of the WAC sites the volleyball home courts are still relegated to second-tier facilities (think Klum Gym) that might not fit more than 600-700.

    Not sure about the audience demographics, though.

  202. mctruck September 27, 2009 6:04 am

    UH coachs playing with the idea of using their taller recievers to cover opponents tall recievers on defense sounds like a winner to me…they might make a bunch of interceptions along the way, what with their pass catching skills.

    Watching both Neveda and Fresno this past week, they actually traded blow for blow with their opponents; mistakes and crucial turnovers in the second half looks like what did them in…..so they are going to be primed and ready when they meet UH.

    Good Luck against LaTech, Warriors.

    My 2-cents….. You gotto to go w/ the players you brought to the dance…. The pass rush needs improvement especially off the edges. Healthy DE’s will help. A rested D will help. Corners have good technique but need help if available. Sometimes it just a good play by the bad guys. Then all you can do is PUNISH the receiver (and QB). Make that reception hurt! IMHO 😈

    A friend suggested attending the waders game. I said – “No thank you!”

    Did I tell you about John Madden. He purchased 9 62″ TV’s for his “den”. He has an NFL football watching party for the morning games (today), then jumps on the bus 2nd half to head over to watch the waders game, then bus back home in time for the Sunday night game! His guests are welcome to stay there, or join him in the bus! I’m jealous!:mrgreen: 🙄 😀

    but I love readng what you got to say. how you think Coach Miano and Lumpkin holding up on their ends? Thanks.

    Good Luck against LaTech, Warriors. I’m excited. Looking for Lou Holtz to say “these youong men from Hawaii can play.” 😀

    I would instruck the db’s to do whatever it takes to deny a td or long gain.
    Better to be hit with a penalty than give up a td. That’s for the present especially with LaTech taller wr’s.

    I guess since whether in the pros or in college, not looking back for the in coming pass happens almost consistantly, so that being said, I am left scratching my head just like anyone else???

    Louisiana Tech Invites Grambling Students to Wednesday’s Game vs. Hawai’i
    Grambling students will be granted free admission with valid student ID
    Grambling State students are invited to LA Tech’s game against Hawai’i on Wednesday night for free.

    RUSTON, La. – In another initiative to partner with Grambling State for the betterment of the shared community, Louisiana Tech officials are extending an invitation to all Grambling State students to attend LA Tech’s Wednesday night game against Hawai’i for free. Grambling students will be granted admission with a valid student ID when entering Gate 4B on the southeast side of Joe Aillet Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.

    Louisiana Tech and Grambling State are located within four miles of one another and the two universities share a unique bond, including operating an Interinstitutional Cooperative Program, making it possible for undergraduate and graduate students to enroll for classes at both schools concurrently.

    “This is a unique opportunity to come together on a weeknight as a community and show our shared support on national television,” said head coach Derek Dooley. “Our team has worked out with the Grambling football team the past two summers and this is our way to continue to enhance this special relationship.”

    Louisiana Tech’s game on Wednesday will be broadcast on ESPN2 and is a RED OUT game with all Tech fans being encouraged to wear red. In addition, LA Tech will give away $1,000 to a Tech student that wearing red and in the stadium before kickoff.

    wow. Free invite to watch Hawaii to the Grambling students. Giving $1000 to a LaTech student at halftime. National TV.

    Go put on a good show for Grambling and da rest of da Nation, Warriors!

    Go Hawaii!!!

    An interception has taken the blame away from Ryan but he is the constant talk of the announcers today, including a recent reference to Hawaiian palm trees.

    [SUNDAY – DAY 7 of 11.
    Puerto Vallarta, Mexico 20.39 N, 105.15º W
    Distance sailed from San Francisco so far: 1,948 nautical miles]

    Good day everyone, especially fellow Tsai-ko Cruisers!

    Slowly emerging from last night’s chocolate-induced coma. Puerto Vallarta is a heavily visited port of call for all cruise lines and made famous by Director John Huston (Night of the Iguana) and the Love Boat TV series.

    Peaches and I have been here once before in 2003 enroute the Panama Canal, but the changes to the port and immediate area is astounding. The port can hold 3-4 ships our size now and there is a Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, and new shopping center across the street. Shucks, we only brought our Costco card for Cabo San Lucas… j/k 😆

    Today’s snapshot of shipboard life: similar to previous port days except there is a one game $5,000 bingo tonight and a 2230 international Carnival Party featuring many of the singers and musicians from the stage shows. It will be held in the atrium. The atrium in this ship has 4 scenic glass elevators and starts at deck 5 and is continuously open until deck 11 (pool deck, spa, buffet), which has the sun roof. The sounds from this party could carry through half the ship.

    Tonight’s professional theater performance is a performance by comedian Bill Hildebrandt.

    No special promos for the alcohol-inclined, but the 0800-1100 morning happy hour specials are in effect and you can still get the helmet 6-pack of beer for the price of 5. Must be a lot of inexpensive beer and liquor available on shore on port days.

    Next port: Cabo San Lucas. ETA 0800 Monday
    …then 2 days at sea to San Francisco port, SFO, and home. 😐

    “Detroit Gets Additional Help From Washington”

    That’s the too-easy-headline for tomorrow’s Washington Post. Mixed emotions. Owner Dan Snyder was suing folks for not living up to their season ticket contracts no matter if they fell on hard times. I’m happy that he’s unhappy. But Colt’s biggest supporter in Washington (Zorn) is probably gone barring a miracle turnaround.

    Congrats on your Jets! 3-0 after playing the Titans and New England? Who would have thunk it! Hey Pete! You think that Sanchez kid is ready yet?

  266. UH +2.5 September 27, 2009 12:26 pm

    Latech gives up 250 yrds rushing a game, ranked 118

    Latech gives up 156 yrds passing a game, ranked 16

    expect UH not to run the ball and play into the strength of latechs defense–pass defense.. 7 to 9 defenders in the box expect UH coaches to pass..watch and see

    so bet the farm on latech covering the spread.
