Glennie Adams resigns as Chaminade coach

Former UH-Hilo volleyball standout Glennie Adams has resigned as head coach of Chaminade’s volleyball team.
Wouldn’t Tino Reyes, past associate head coach of the UH men’s volleyball team, make an outstanding successor? Reyes was once Chaminade’s head coach.

Offensive tackle Kainoa LaCount said he has met the requirements to play for the Warriors this season. “Finally,” he said.

Mahalo to Miss Hawai‘i Raeceen Woolford and David Veikune for appearing as today’s guests on the Warrior Beat Show.

If you’re keeping track, Brashton Satele is down to 238 — a 26-pound weight loss since the start of summer. Here’s Brashton at yesterday’s unsupervised workouts:

Happy birthday to DjMitcho.

Also, birthday wishes to Ryan Henry and Jennifer Carey.

    Good article, letsgowarrors.
    You know, I don’t recall seeing any trainers or medical staff at unsupervised workouts. Well, maybe the basketball trainer was there during the morning ones.

  10. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 7:01 am

    As Colt alluded to, most people watch the show at work.

  11. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 7:02 am

    I brought my son to the unsupervised workouts yesterday afternoon.
    Our conclusion: It’s really hot out there.
    Especially on the turf.

  12. Ronnie July 21, 2009 7:05 am

    I can’t watch the show from work; our IT department has blocked streaming video feeds 🙁

  13. letsgowarriors July 21, 2009 7:07 am

    sorry didnt mean to post Boulder info on a veikune chat.

    its good to see that Mack is on par with getting recruits here by Summer Session 2.

    hopefully we get up to par on the full participation. CU is going 11ons unsupervised.

    Mornin stephen-kos!!!

    Hey stephen…have you gotten the chance to get that workout book yet? I still got 30 lbs to go. Maybe you can get Brashton to email me a handwritten note on his workout regimen. What do you think?

  16. Slugger July 21, 2009 7:28 am

    Get well soon, SailorBlue!

    I won’t be able to watch the show live today; I’ll be getting a massage.

    Question for Raeceen: Are you related to Ke’o Woolford?

  17. Stretch July 21, 2009 7:30 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    ST – I DARE you to ask Miss Hawaii to dance. Let’s see it!!

    I’m anxious to see a Dancing Queenmoment today!

    Will you be on campus? Will there be an opportunity for a lucky fan to *cut* in?

  19. Piper's Son July 21, 2009 8:04 am

  22. NYUH July 21, 2009 8:31 am

    Can anyone explain to me what happened after the Holiday Bowl in 1992 when Hawaii fell to 0-11? I was out of the country and the Internet was not too informative in those days.

    for raeceen….

    congratulations! probably this is greater than any volleyball memory. you were most definitely the best!

    i hear that you will be entering med school, that’s awesome, what field of medicine will you be pursuing and why?

  32. al July 21, 2009 9:14 am

    another raeceen question…

    you’re just a rare combination of beauty, grace, intellect, and athleticism. besides being a great example to the youth of hawaii, what is the one thing you would like to do for the na keiki o hawaii?


    what would you tell a prospective female student/athlete about your university of hawaii experience and why should she become a member of the na wahine?

    mahalo girl. we’ll be pulling for you in the main event.

  33. A-House July 21, 2009 9:14 am

  35. al July 21, 2009 9:18 am

    david veikune…

    congratulations on your nfl career dream come true!

    when do you expect to graduate and what is your major?


    what would you tell a prospective student/athlete about your university of hawaii experience and why should he become a member of the warrior football program?

  36. Bulla July 21, 2009 9:20 am

    good morning Tsaikos,

    quick recovery to Sailor Blue, pleasure meeting you this past weekend.

    congrats to brashton satele, lean and mean, pack on the muscle now.

    ryan is on the same path, came home at 250 lbs, down from season playing weight 272 lbs, and getting quicker…..lean and mean takes you farther down the road to success….


  37. al July 21, 2009 9:22 am

    last one for david……..

    how is your transition going from a defensive end to a hybrid outside linebacker progressing?

    what are the biggest challenges?
    what has been the easiest adjustment?
    are you comfortable with this change?

    we’ll be pulling for you!

  38. al July 21, 2009 9:24 am

    happy birthday to ryan and jen!

    ah, jen carey one of my favorite na wahine.

    Get well all!

  40. Ralph July 21, 2009 9:25 am

    Wagner got canned, Von Appen got hired and killed the program Thank you Hugh Yoshida

  41. al July 21, 2009 9:28 am

    das some pretty thick arms for a receiver!

    the days of old have evolved yah. in the old days, the skinniest and fastest guys were ends. the mantra was, just go deep.

    today, receivers gotta be strong enough to fight off the defenders.

  42. 702WarriorNation July 21, 2009 9:37 am

    I wasn’t in Hawaii when this all happened and still an expat.
    However continuing events led to hiring of JJ, HF(sorry another error) Sugar, HF replaced by JD and now Coach Mack.
    Where we’ll be in the near future – I will continue to remain positive in my outlook.

  43. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 9:37 am

    Just a friendly reminder to limit each post to one question, although you may post multiple times.

  44. LizKauai (iPhone) July 21, 2009 9:38 am

    David Veikune- what are the major surprises you have had moving to the NFL level?

    Raceen- what kind of schedule of appearances will you have as Miss Hawaii?

  45. LizKauai (iPhone) July 21, 2009 9:38 am

    Oops. Sorry ST

  46. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 9:41 am

    In short, after UH won the Holiday Bowl:
    • UH stopped taking partial qualifiers.
    • Other programs, such as Utah, San Diego State, New Mexico and Fresno State invested more money into the athletic program …
    • … and UH did not.
    • Paul Johnson eventually left.

  47. al July 21, 2009 9:44 am

    i forgot that the princess could only manage to read one question at a time.

    i’m joking.

  48. Jason July 21, 2009 9:45 am

    al: Don’t you watch the show? You need to ask shorter questions, you’re giving the Princess a hard time. 😛

  49. Slugger July 21, 2009 9:49 am

    Just tell the Princess to skip those posted questions that are rambling & too long. Take the ones that are posted singly & to the point.

  50. al July 21, 2009 9:56 am

    jason…but, that’s how i talk. i always have a prelude to what i am asking or stating. must be the pordagee blood in me.

    i think if she just read my queries it would be just fine. i am always leading up to something before i ask.

  51. al July 21, 2009 9:57 am

    gee slugger….i thought you were on my side.

  52. al July 21, 2009 9:58 am

    i actually ask a lot of questions because many of you don’t and i am trying to save face for the blog.

    know what i mean.

  53. Princess Leila July 21, 2009 10:03 am

    Hi al! and y’all….
    And I really, really appreciate you asking all those questions! Sometimes it just trips me up, so it’s easier to ask one question at a time. Plus, I don’t really read the questions before I start asking them so I ramble a bunch off and it gets confusing for the guest.

    Good morning everyone!

  54. Slugger July 21, 2009 10:06 am


    Some commentary leading up to the question is good if it needs the background information. For an interview show, too much preamble is, well, too much. One question per post is much easier to handle.

    Long posts for the blog is great. That what this is for. Just not for interviews where you really want to hear the interviewee’s point of view.

    ST ~ You should have PL just read the first question posted on a long single posting & then go to the next one. It’s like going to Krazy Karaoke & having one person put in 6 songs in a row & not letting the rest of the group get in there to sing. Mixing it up is a good thing.

  55. Garret July 21, 2009 10:07 am

    I think that it is easier for the guests also when there is just one question asked at a time. I’ve seen that cause problems in the past, and then they have to ask for the other parts of the question.

    So, I think it is best for the Princess *and* the guests to ask just one question at a time.

  56. Garret July 21, 2009 10:07 am

    Discussion of the most valuable Dolphin players of course includes Bess.

    WR DAVONE BESS — Bess isn’t physically imposing or flashy, but he’s got tremendous savvy as a receiver and also did a nice job as a punt returner.

  57. Slugger July 21, 2009 10:09 am

    Whoa! Brashton’s IN shape! Great pic, ST!


    Please don’t take offense (or defense :)) It’s just in watching the show, it does slow the Princess down when there’s a long post w/ an embedded question.

  58. Garret July 21, 2009 10:09 am


    What aspect of your training or preparation for UH games do you think was most helpful for the Miss Hawaii competition?

  59. Garret July 21, 2009 10:13 am

    David Veikune,

    What has been the hardest thing about adjusting to the inside and outside linebacker positions with the Browns?

  60. al July 21, 2009 10:21 am

    ok, ok, ok.
    i get the point.
    the boss says i talk too much anyway.

  61. al July 21, 2009 10:25 am

    more folks should ask questions.
    sometimes, well, quite often the hosts are begging for questions.
    my fear is that if i don’t ask more questions the show will just go away.
    just here to support the program.

    i guess i ask questions that seek answers that will get inside of the head of the guests and to do such i need to set it up.

    well just my opinion.

  62. al July 21, 2009 10:27 am

    on another note….
    brashton is certainly making a statement to be strongly considered for his old position.

    hey, he would be a great guest.

  63. al July 21, 2009 10:29 am

    hi princess!

    no worry.
    you still my favorite princess.

  64. Princess Leila July 21, 2009 10:35 am

    Hi al! Sorry, I didn’t mean to make you feel bad. I really, truly appreciate the questions you and the other Tsai-kos are asking! Thank you so much. I think the guests like answering questions from people who are fans. Very different from us boring media types.

  65. Ralph July 21, 2009 10:41 am

    Al getting lickens this morning from Jason and slugger…don’t ramble on and on, a few more paragraphs and you’ll be writing as much as wassup doc and roysan16

  66. Pride. July 21, 2009 10:45 am

    Hi Raeceen, Ubduh uhhh duhh but yeah ahhhh uh….i mean uhhh ahhh bbbbdddahhh. And then bbbbbddddduhhh uhhhh ahhhh.

    Darned cat.

  67. Ralph July 21, 2009 10:46 am

    Wassup-Al, great moniker for one of our knowledgeable tsaiko

  68. Pride. July 21, 2009 10:47 am

    Yeah, the Princess is kind of boring. Luckily ST is on the show.

  69. chawan_cut July 21, 2009 10:50 am

    for both of you,

    if you could sum up your UH careers/experiences in one (or a few) word(s), what would it be?


  70. al July 21, 2009 10:53 am

    ralph says all the cute things

  71. al July 21, 2009 11:01 am

    pride. how are you doing?
    good question.

    say, we should discuss that over lunch on friday.

  72. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:02 am

    Princess Leila you are far from boring.

  73. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:04 am

    No can Friday, only Thursday.

  74. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:07 am

    Sitting here wondering if Brashton was ever asked whether he wanted to move to DE or not. Hmmmm.

    Of course it’s none of my business though.

  75. Shauna July 21, 2009 11:09 am

    We need a LOT more questions for today’s show! I’m helping to moderate again. (How is this ending up to be my job every week? 😉 )

    al: Thank you for your questions! The show would be short without all of yours! 😉

  76. Thanks for posting, I really enjoyed that post, wish you would post more often

  77. Slugger July 21, 2009 11:15 am


    Good suggestion. Would be interesting to have Brashton on to find out what he’s working toward, what position he likes playing…

    Having Grandma Pestana on, too, would be fun to hear a fan/’ohana’s point of view… 🙂

  78. BG July 21, 2009 11:15 am


    As athletic and competitive as you are, how did you cope with your limited playing time?

  79. BG July 21, 2009 11:17 am


    What is the one thing that you can say has helped you improve your game (mental or physical) since you left college?

  80. al July 21, 2009 11:18 am

    pride. no can thursday. i’ll be in the no kaoi valley.

  81. BG July 21, 2009 11:19 am


    How did your playing sports help you in the pagent…if any?

  82. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:20 am

    Raeceen and David, what is the one most important lesson that you learned from your parents, that enabled you to be as successful as you are today?

  83. BG July 21, 2009 11:20 am


    Beau Bell was all over the field against the Warriors two years ago. How is he as a pro player and teammate?

  84. Slugger July 21, 2009 11:20 am


    With childhood obesity on the increase, how would you use your Miss Hawai’i position to get the children of Hawai’i started on life-long fitness?

  85. al July 21, 2009 11:20 am

    i am thinking that brashton was “asked” one of those questions where a negative reply could be construed as not being a team player?

  86. for BG July 21, 2009 11:20 am

    Since I know it’s coming

    David –
    If a whole section of fans stood up and did the Ha’a with the Warriors after the warm ups, what would the reaction be? From you…from the players?

  87. al July 21, 2009 11:21 am

    hi shauna.
    why don’t you just slip some questions in yourself?

  88. warriorfanny2 July 21, 2009 11:21 am

    #1. LGW, im not surprised u took the initiative to learn….kudos to u….now, u understand the reasoning for some predicting a 6-7 season….notice in the recent pic re our aussie punter there is no mention of his clock-time from snap to boot, his average hangtime over 10 punts or where he places the ball–ie, between the hashmarks or betw the hash and the sideline….just a caption that he is boomin da ball…..ZZZZZZZZZ.

  89. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:22 am


    What song are you going to sing for the vets when asked to sing at dinner during fall camp?

  90. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:24 am


    Do you still lift weights? If so, what kind of workout do you do and how often?

  91. Slugger July 21, 2009 11:24 am


    How much time have you gotten to spend in Cleveland and what have you enjoyed the most there, outside of football?

  92. al July 21, 2009 11:25 am

    david…have you and kaluka maiava gotten together?

  93. Ai-Yah July 21, 2009 11:26 am

    and he is back… i knew good things couldn’t last forever.

    WF2 – YOU are welcome to join ST to watch the workouts with YOUR stopwatch, YOUR camera, YOUR notepad. Please do it so we can get all the info that YOU are requesting. Why criticize someone for getting info for us even if it’s not what YOU want. who cares what YOU want.

  94. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:27 am

    are you serious?

  96. Slugger July 21, 2009 11:30 am

  98. Shauna July 21, 2009 11:31 am

    Is question in #86 from BG for David or for BG??

    al: I don’t follow sports so I wouldn’t know what to ask… Ssshh… 😉

  99. al July 21, 2009 11:33 am


    perhaps you, melila, and kaluka will form the “hawaiian punch” or more aptly “da poi dogs” since the browns does have the dawgpound.

  100. homey ℞ July 21, 2009 11:33 am

    Princess Leila – So when are you walking down to my side again?

    There, one question.

  101. 808Chef July 21, 2009 11:34 am

    Miss Hawaii….

    What was da celebration grindz after everything was over? Congrats and Good Luck!

  102. Pride. July 21, 2009 11:35 am

    Everybody is entitled to their opinion, even if that opinion is in opposition to mine. But, never be intimidated by anyone, and never back down from anyone.

  103. homey ℞ July 21, 2009 11:36 am

    Yeah, I aint sked of Pride…gulp.

  104. BG July 21, 2009 11:37 am

    #86 Thanks! LOL

    I’ve decided to leave that one alone since I’ve received no response from the powers that be. No attitude here…I just like to prioritize things and try to be smart about what I can or can’t do. I have so many exciting things I want to do before the Good Lord calls me for the Ultimate Adventure.

  105. 808Chef July 21, 2009 11:37 am

    Howzit Mr. Veikune!

    So when you chatted with Kaluka…have you ever thought about asking him…”Why not UH?” Nah nah…no make. So where you planning on getting local grindz in Lebronland, OH?

  106. LizKauai [Believer] July 21, 2009 11:37 am

    Raeceen- what are you planning to do to “step it up” for the Miss America Pageant?

  107. LizKauai [Believer] July 21, 2009 11:38 am

    ok… gotta go chiro. Will have to catch the replay…

  108. Kekoa July 21, 2009 11:41 am

    Question for David:

    What was the most impressive *Welcome to the NFL* event on or off the field when you arrived in Cleveland, Ohio?

  109. al July 21, 2009 11:44 am

    gee lizk….she looked pretty hot to me and more importantly she had the only intelligent answer during the contest.

  110. al July 21, 2009 11:45 am

    808chef….careful now. your question was a bit lengthy.

  111. Kekoa July 21, 2009 11:45 am

    Question for Miss Hawaii

    Do you have plans to promote the UH Athletic Program during your travels?…How so?

  112. al July 21, 2009 11:46 am

    no worry homey.
    i bring a step ladder for you to go head to head with pride.

  113. al July 21, 2009 11:46 am

    kekoa….please limit your questions to one per post.

  114. Stretch July 21, 2009 11:48 am

    damn… Al is the post police now…. hahahahahha

  115. al July 21, 2009 11:52 am

    stretch….watch your choice of words. “damn” is not everday vernacular on this blog. i could report you to the smu policeman.

  116. al July 21, 2009 11:54 am

    princess leila….even if you did hurt my feelings, no worry i still love you.

  117. al July 21, 2009 11:57 am

    warriorfanny2…how you doing?
    good to see you again.
    what happened to tiger?
    too bad mr. watson didn’t pull it off.
    he did look too intense on the 18th.

  118. al July 21, 2009 11:58 am

    please pardon the slight delay.
    i think st is still in the restroom.

  119. Kekoa July 21, 2009 12:01 pm

    Al ~ Now you making the Princess angry at you again for making tan-ta-run!

    was that you kekoa or ralph?

  121. Shauna July 21, 2009 12:15 pm

    FYI, I did submit those last several questions listed but for some reason it’s not showing up on the Cover It Live… I alerted our online team…

  122. Kekoa July 21, 2009 12:16 pm

    Al ~ It’s me…but I think the Princess was getting on your case. So don’t shoot, I’m only the Piano player!

  123. Kekoa July 21, 2009 12:19 pm

    Thanks Shauna…here’s a question for you. Do you prefer doing this show on campus or back at the HA Bat Cave?

  124. Colomaohana July 21, 2009 12:20 pm



    ((((sigh))) See what happens when I disappear??? Dangit!

    ST: too late to claim my prize?

    CONGRATS SteveM!!

    Awww…man……somebody give me lickens, please…….I can’t believe I totally missed it!!!

    Homey! YOU was on da pink side this morning! Sheesh..why you neva’ tell me!

  125. Shauna July 21, 2009 12:27 pm

    Kekoa: It doesn’t matter to me since I’m at my desk transferring the comments anyway… But I think I prefer it at the Bat Cave so there’s a potential to see some action. 😉 But the studio is definitely tucked away in the corner…

    Not sure why Leila wasn’t given those other questions that didn’t go through… I guess there is a glitch. 🙁

  126. HiFlyer July 21, 2009 12:30 pm

    David do you see yourself getting any playing time this year.

  127. warriorfanny2 July 21, 2009 12:44 pm

    #117. good point and I wrote an article that wasnt very endearing of my hero or Golf in general.
    I was getting tired of pundits claiming tiger was the best athlete on the planet and he could be a DB in the NFL. Lol.
    He got beat by a 60 year old and was showed up by a 17 year old pup named the “bashful prince”. Now, show me, where a 60 year old or 17 year old can dominate an all pro NFL baller?
    Look, golf is a skill sport which requires mucho skill and gray matter, but athletic wise–not when Tom Watson, right off of major hip surgey finishes in a tie for first in the biggest major in golf–give me a freeking break!

  128. warriorfanny2 July 21, 2009 12:49 pm

    Ok… so opened up my Hmail today and apparently this Satuday’s event WILL be a tryout…

    Hmmm… perhaps I’ll pass on this one… I don’t like “pressure” 😉

  130. Kazz July 21, 2009 1:00 pm

    Ms. Woolford is as beautiful as they come and as a former Rainbow Wahine, what better representative could we have as “Miss. Hawai’i”?

    Happy BDay to Ryan Henry and Jenn Carey.

    Happy Birthday to Princess Leila!!

  136. chawan_cut July 21, 2009 1:51 pm

    did anyone else get their H-mail? Rep. Takai and 2 other UH graduates serving our country flew the UH flag at their Kuwait base.


  137. Garret July 21, 2009 1:59 pm

    I haven’t seen the show yet (buried under a pile of work for the past few hours), so I don’t know if David Veikune was asked about his contract situation. Here is what his agent said:

    As far as David Veikune is concerned, agent Ken Zuckerman tells The OBR, through an office worker, that discussions with the club “are in a holding pattern

  138. al July 21, 2009 1:59 pm

    happy birthday princess!

  139. Garret July 21, 2009 2:02 pm

    The Vegas lines have been set and the over/under for UH wins this season is 5.5. So, if you bet on UH and UH goes 6-7 or better, you win the bet…Vegas sure doesn’t think very highly of UH this season.

    The over/under for BSU wins is 10.5.

  140. Garret July 21, 2009 2:02 pm

    Happy Birthday Princess!

  141. homey ℞ July 21, 2009 2:09 pm

  142. homey ℞ July 21, 2009 2:10 pm

    Could be Garret is writing Happy Birthday to Koa-mahu.

  143. Ralph July 21, 2009 2:12 pm

    happy brithday Leila, Tsai mentioned that you’re 28, it that right?

  144. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 2:39 pm

    Veikune said he won’t report to camp until there is a resolution to his contract situation. He said he did not know how far apart the sides are .

  145. homey ℞ July 21, 2009 2:40 pm

    Ralph – 1997 graduate of Kaiser High…do the math.

  146. Kekoa July 21, 2009 2:45 pm

    Ralph!…Shame on you…You know, she’s still a pup!

    Nevah mine him Princess. Have a Happy Birthday today and don’t worry about Ralph trying to make you retirement age aurreddy.

  147. d1島 July 21, 2009 2:45 pm

    Maybe David Veikune shoulda done the math!

  148. Kekoa July 21, 2009 2:47 pm

    Vegas lines are going to be off just enuff to make it happen for UH bettors who do this purely for entertainment purposes this season. Hehehe! 😳

  149. Princess Leila July 21, 2009 2:54 pm

    Thanks for the birthday wishes…still TWO more days to remain in my 20s! Yikes!

    Anyways, did you guys see this?

    I’m think there are more than a few qualified Tsai-kos who could get involved in this.

  150. Kekoa July 21, 2009 2:54 pm

    ST ~ Easy day today. No video problems on my end. Audio levels go ballistic when Princess laughs. She really pegs the needles at times! No can help, get plenny enthusiasim!

    Questions concerning the questions, caused some of the questions to disappear.

  151. Jason July 21, 2009 2:56 pm

    Happy birthday Princess!

    And I’m with Kainoa on this one. Finally!

  152. d1島 July 21, 2009 3:00 pm

    Whoa! Das one beeg buggah!

    ….and LaCount get pretty good size, too!


  153. homey ℞ July 21, 2009 3:04 pm

    Good to see LaCount has his priorities in order.


  154. J-Dog July 21, 2009 3:06 pm

    Has Kainoa LaCount been working out? Im curious to see how effective he can be and if he can step in and compete for a starting position in training camp. I’d also like to see if he really is a legit 6’6″-6″7″ as mentioned.

  155. Princess Leila July 21, 2009 3:14 pm

    Kekoa: Yikes. Sorry about that. I’ll try to lean away from the microphone the next time I’m about to laugh uncontrollably.

  156. ai-eee-soos July 21, 2009 3:18 pm

    Welcome home to the Warrior team, Kainoa Lacount.

    It’s been a long journey, but it’ll be worth it.

    Good Luck, Kainoa.

  157. da princess' classmate July 21, 2009 3:22 pm

    hey princess

    eh keep it down, some of us are already on the wrong side of 30 🙁

    5.5 W’s for the warriors sure seems low

  158. Kekoa July 21, 2009 3:28 pm

    Princess Leila ~ Just trying to make a good show, an even better one. Thanks for being a good moderater. Someone has to give the show a little *Star Quality!*

  159. al July 21, 2009 3:40 pm

    princess leila….don’t mind ralph. he has a way with words when it comes to women.

  160. al July 21, 2009 3:42 pm

    whoa, princess you are rather tall aren’t you?
    if raceen is the 5’7″ as she claims and leila is about an inch taller than she…….well, ralph better not stand next to them.

  161. al July 21, 2009 3:46 pm

    well, having kainoa in the house just made the competition stand up. his arrival is a bonus.

    in fact, having kaniela tuipulotu come in next year is another bonus.

  162. labrat July 21, 2009 4:04 pm

    will Kainoa attend fall camp?

  163. ai-eee-soos July 21, 2009 4:04 pm

    Joseph Napeahi – now you gotta get qualified.

    Kainoa Lacount and Joseph Napeahi – woo – beeg buggahs,

    and they have JC experience.

    Looooking good — hope it gets better.

    Tsai-kos have to try out to be Psychos?

    What’s up with that!?!?

  166. wafan July 21, 2009 4:07 pm

    Oops. Sorry, wrong blog.


  167. ai-eee-soos July 21, 2009 4:09 pm

    ” labrat: July 21st, 2009 at 4:04 pm
    will Kainoa attend fall camp? ”

    It would be foolish NOT to have Kainoa in fall camp.

    I think he will be in fall camp, they will make room.

    fall camp – just a few weeks away …

  168. wafan July 21, 2009 4:09 pm

    Anyhow, I think it is just plain crazy.

    On the other hand, they want the regular crazies as opposed to the irregular crazies there I suppose.

    So, as Tsai-ko’s, are we the regular or irregular crazies?

  169. ai-eee-soos July 21, 2009 4:13 pm

    and I think Kainoa has 2 to play 2; no more time on the clock.

  170. letsgowarriors July 21, 2009 4:25 pm

    lacount and tuipulotu will be bonuses for 2010. not sure what type of shape lacount is in, but our projected OL for 09 are all seniors. very, very worried about our OL in the future. we only got Makainai and Leonard last class, w/ Loeffler greyshirting. we got a good start on ’10 w/ Lefotu, Loyd, Shigematsu and Sapolu.

  171. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 4:39 pm

    I think the issue with Joseph was his weight, not his grades.

  172. ai-eee-soos July 21, 2009 4:44 pm

    re #171.

    Right, I think you mentioned it before.

    And I think another poster said that he was attending CC.

    But I sure hope that he can get on board, in any scenario.

  173. wafan July 21, 2009 4:50 pm

    Happy birthday to dj, Ryan and Jennifer!

  174. kama krab July 21, 2009 5:20 pm

    Howzit Everybody,

    The O-line situation has just gotten a little bit more interesting. With a senior ladden front five this year, we are looking really stacked for next year and years to come.

  175. kama krab July 21, 2009 5:35 pm


    We still got a lot of names in the cupboard to chose from once this senior class is gone. What these names need is a chance and they will get that chance once 09 is done. We should still be solid on the line for years to come. JMO

  176. letsgowarriors July 21, 2009 5:40 pm

    a whole new starting 5 + qb can be shaky. experience does count…and if they cant beat out the current starters even though they are underclassmen, it does not bold well….

    who are these names you are thinking of? im curious bc i dont see any.

  177. kama krab July 21, 2009 5:41 pm

    What I think we need for the O-line is more Brett Leonard, Kainoa LaCount type Offensive Tackles. That is one position that we are very slim at. It looks like we have some studs in waiting at the Guard and Center position, we just need the big boys, 6-5 and above. That would be a nice wish list each year. One or two per class would be great.

  178. al July 21, 2009 5:45 pm

    the key to our oline rests in the hands of one assistant coach gordy shaw. isn’t he the fourth or fifth oline coach in as many years?

    i sure hope that he can make the transition from run oriented oline mentor to run n shoot pass happy oline guru. i believe the techniques and assignments are like apples n oranges.

    …nuff said.

  179. d1島 July 21, 2009 5:46 pm

    Hope agin’ hope…

  180. d1島 July 21, 2009 5:47 pm

    I suddenly feel that I should DVR the K5 news at 6:30….

  181. kama krab July 21, 2009 5:51 pm


    I was looking at guys like Drew Uperesa, Tui Tuiasosopo, Austin Hansen, Matagisila Lefiti. Even guys like Levi Legay and Ikaika Rodenhurst. All of these guys I have named all have big time potential and all could be better then the current starters we have but just need time to develop physically and mentally for the college game, which is why they are still not seing very much time. But I must say that once these guys get there chance, they will be animals on the field.

  182. al July 21, 2009 5:53 pm

    lacount, leonard, tui, rodenhurst, sila, ginlack, sapolu, uperesa, hansen will all get more reps in practice this year and may smell more game. you never know who will rise to the occasion.

    we are also pursuing some jc prospects.

    i say lets get through this year first. i do believe that we will top the vegas’ odds of 5.5 wins. i’ll chip in a few pesos on that bet.

  183. al July 21, 2009 5:54 pm

    what’s on at 6:30 pm other than an eclipse?

  184. kama krab July 21, 2009 5:57 pm


    I think we have alot of talent that just needs to be coached up. I think that Shaw will bring the stability and knowledge it will take to push this talent over the top and bring us back to the days of Coach Cav.

    I have total faith that this years o-line will be alot better than last, just because of the fact that they are getting the experienced coaching that they need.

  185. d1島 July 21, 2009 5:57 pm

    Next total eclipse in Hawaii in 2106!

    ….darn! I’m booked. 🙁

  186. d1島 July 21, 2009 5:59 pm


    A little “bookie” says, “an overdue ‘signing ceremony’.”

  187. Stephen Tsai July 21, 2009 6:03 pm

    Rodenhurst is not on the 105.

  188. warriorfanny2 July 21, 2009 6:03 pm

    #170, we got better athletes on DL that can switch to OL IF Shaw makes a case w MAC. There are several im thinkin about that could start in 2010 on the OL and contend. Otherwise it looks like rebuilding in 2010 not reloading….lacount will take at least a year to play himself back into shape and form…he has been out 2 years 2 many…..still wishin kainoa the best and congrads for qualifying, at this point continuing his education under a scholie is huge….gotta be rooting for the big guy from over the pali to dial-in.

  189. kama krab July 21, 2009 6:03 pm

    And back to the names I just listed,

    I did not even list the Juniors, that will be making there presence felt this year and the 09 recruited freshmen. Tell me, if this is not a pretty good cupboard to play with, then I don’t have much else to say.

  190. kama krab July 21, 2009 6:07 pm


    Is there a chance he could be added back when the roster is expanded?

  191. kama krab July 21, 2009 6:12 pm

    by the way Stephen,

    Didn’t UH already update there roster, taking out the players not returning for fall. I ask because those that you have stated are leaving have already been deleted from the online roster and Rodenhurst is still there. Once again just wondering.

  192. letsgowarriors July 21, 2009 6:18 pm

    there are guys on the roster that are not part of the 105 that may/may not be invited back once fall semester starts.

  193. Piper's Son July 21, 2009 6:43 pm

    Happy birthday Princess – though with that picture with Raeceen and the crown on your head – one could also call you a Queen!

    Of course Raeceen is a lovely queen as well.

  199. Garret July 21, 2009 8:07 pm

    I’m glad that Kainoa LaCount can join the Warriors! It seems like the process has taken forever, but I’m glad he’s through it now.

    Hopefully he’ll be ready to contribute by next season when the OL loses so many to graduation…though contributing this season would be nice too.

  200. Garret July 21, 2009 8:08 pm

    I’m glad that Colt finally got his autograph from Stephanie Lum.

  201. lava July 21, 2009 8:08 pm

    I think Shaw will make a difference with the O-Line, but at the same time, I don’t expect any player new to the Warrior program to make an impact on the O-Line this year. I hope I’m wrong, but it just seems like there is a lot of adjustment in terms of athleticism, strength, toughness, competition, playing with new guys, learning a new offense and classwork.

  202. Garret July 21, 2009 8:11 pm

    Veikune said he won’t report to camp until there is a resolution to his contract situation. He said he did not know how far apart the sides are .


    Veikune’s agent seems a little frustrated with his recent comments…without the Browns trying to negotiate it is hard to make a deal! Here is another update about how Cleveland seems to be slow about negotiating with their high draft picks. It isn’t just that Cleveland isn’t trying to sign Veikune, they aren’t trying to sign ANY of their top 4 draft picks!

    July 21, 2009
    There has reportedly been little talk between the Browns and rookie Brian Robiskie regarding a contract, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

    Our View:The club has also had little talk with center Alex Mack (pick 21), receiver Mohamad Massaquoi (pick 50) and linebacker David Veikune (pick 52). The Browns still have some time to get their top rookies inked prior to the start of training camp July 31 though.

  203. Garret July 21, 2009 8:17 pm


    You mentioned in a recent blog that the SEC will eventually have their TV contract run out and they will have to be ready for the drop in revenue after that. That would be the case if they were negotiating a new deal now…but their new deal actually starts this season and goes on for *15* years!

    For their football TV rights (not counting the local TV/radio deals that each team has), the SEC gets $55 million per year from CBS and $150 million per year from ESPN (ESPN gets the games CBS doesn’t want). That is $205 million per year for 15 years!

  204. Garret July 21, 2009 8:20 pm

    ESPN is trying to create a nationally syndicated TV network for the SEC–it might already have more coverage than the Big 10 Network. The SEC Network will show men’s and women’s basketball in additional to football…and would be huge for their recruiting and $$$. The “SEC Network” revenue is in *addition* to the $205 million per year they are getting from CBS/ESPN.

    The SEC wasn’t kidding when it said it would land national affiliates for its syndicated football games. Who needs to own your own network when you’ve got this type exposure, in addition to ESPN and CBS?

    So far, ESPN Regional Television has landed SEC affiliates in non-SEC cities such as Phoenix; Wichita, Kansas; Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Oklahoma City; Pittsburgh; Dallas-Fort Worth; Houston; and San Antonio. Still on the radar: Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis and New York.

    If you’re keeping score at home, those are a lot of Big Ten and Big 12 markets — the SEC’s main competitor. Presidents and chancellors like this additional exposure to potentially draw more applicants to their universities. Coaches like it to draw more football players.

    Previously, Raycom Sports had the syndicated games and they were delivered only in the nine-state SEC footprint. Now, in markets outside the SEC footprint, the syndicated programming will air on either local, over-the-air TV stations or regional sports cable networks. The markets that are confirmed so far to air the package represent 47 percent of the U.S., with more to come.

  205. Garret July 21, 2009 8:26 pm

    Given all that TV money, the SEC is going to be paying $1 million or more for home games against WAC, MWC, Sun Belt, MAC, and D-IAA teams who want the money and won’t require a home game in return. The SEC gets zero TV dollars for nonconference road games…so they could even pay more than $1 million soon.

    Teams like SJSU who want paydays will go to the SEC first for the biggest offers, with the Big 10 offering the next most money since their TV deal gives a lot more than everyone else except the SEC. That probably explains why SJSU is getting $1 million for their SEC road game and $900k for their Big 10 road game.

  206. Curt July 21, 2009 8:36 pm


    I haven’t been keeping up with the times lately. How did Colt get his Stephanie Lum autograph?

  207. Garret July 21, 2009 8:41 pm

    It sounds like Jake Ingram has a real battle on his hands for the long-snapper position. The Patriots had a hole at that position and they got two good options to battle it out.

    Nathan Hodel vs. Jake Ingram. Call it the battle to replace Lonie Paxton. In one corner, you have the steady veteran in Hodel, someone who has been around a long time, has a track record with new special teams coach Scott O’Brien and has worked on the biggest stage (he was the long snapper last season with the Arizona Cardinals). In the other corner, there’s Ingram, one of the best long collegiate long snappers in the country last year while at Hawaii, so good he was one of only two long snappers invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

    While both appeared to have successful spring practices, kicker Stephen Gostkowski certainly isn’t playing favorites — not yet, anyway.

    “I think it’s going smooth so far. You can’t expect too much in minicamps,” Gostkowski said. “They’re working hard. It always takes a couple of weeks to get the timing down, whenever you have a new guy — no matter how good they are.

    “But I think (holder) Chris (Hanson) has done a real good job of holding and doing a good job of getting in tune with Nate and Jake. They’re working hard — only time will tell who comes out and who is more consistent.”

    Analysis about Bess by a Fantasy Sports site.

    Pros: Bess stepped up after wide receiver Greg Camarillo (knee) suffered a season-ending injury. From Week 12 to Week 17, the University of Hawaii product logged 35 catches for 366 yards.

    Cons: Camarillo’s recovery is ahead of schedule, so it’s unclear what kind of role Bess will have in 2009. He averaged only 10.3 yards per catch and scored once. Bess’ long was 37 yards. Miami employs a run-first offensive approach, which limits his chances.

    Fantasy tip: Simply because Camarillo could suffer a setback at any time, Bess has enough value to be draft-worthy as a No. 6 receiver in point-per-reception leagues.

    The best things about the Jupiter article are the two updates. 😛

    I guess I do not understand AT&T. If you want a credit for the disrupted service you have to notify them and hope they credit your account. Of course, they have the right to deny the credit.

    d1: There will be a complete solar eclipse visible from Hawai`i on August 21, 2017.

    I must remember to make a note to myself to be sure to pack my contact lenses. I left them in my hotel room for the July 11, 1991 eclipse which is when we launched our first ecotourism business – A Guided Tour of The Galaxy – which we for another 14 years.

  228. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 21, 2009 9:50 pm

    Whoops!! …which we ran for another 14 years

    On 8/21/2017 at 3:25 EST, there will be a total solar eclipse over North America. It will pass over Oregon, though the middle of the US, through Kentucky, Tennessee, and South Carolina.


    Thanks for the tip but I’m lookin’ for totality…trying to juggle a few things for the 2106 event. Will keep you updated! 🙂

  231. Pride. July 21, 2009 9:52 pm

    Why did Glennie Adams resign? Did she find another coaching job somewhere?

  232. d1島 July 21, 2009 9:53 pm

    Mahalo Pride.,

    Now the wait doesn’t seem so long!

  233. Curt July 21, 2009 10:04 pm

    Colt looked good on K5 with Stepanie Lum and company tonight. I can’t blame him for wanting her pic & autograph. I’d be happy with a signed photo from ST. 🙂

  234. al July 21, 2009 10:16 pm

    you forgot that raeceen also mentioned that she did her daily devotions before each game/event to help her focus and prepare.

  235. Kekoa July 21, 2009 10:28 pm

    Colt is being very crafty about his image by using his celebrity status to keep the media buzz going. Smart way to satisfy all those fans who are unable to attend his fundraisers and autograph sessions. It’s a great feel good moment for the masses.

    It’s no wonder that even Miss Hawaii chose him after careful consideration. She chose Colt as her favorite UH athelete and personality.

    Continued success to you Colt.

    i’ll have the autograph transaction up soon.

  240. You not only need the best ladders for the job but also the safest… meeting all regulatory requirements. Without making sure of safety you could leave yourself open to claims and legal action.
