Estes, Rocky, R.J. named captains; Warriors will do haka

In a voting by the players, center John Estes, defensive tackle Rocky Savaiigaea and linebacker R.J. Kiesel-Kauhane were named team captains for this season.

* * * * *

The seniors also voted to do the haka  this season.

* * * * *

Defensive back Gary Nagy, who relinquished a BYU scholarship to walk-on at UH, and  defensive tackles Kaniela Tuipulotu and Joshua Mapunapuna  were among the transfers who were added to the active roster today. They have to redshirt this season as part of the NCAA transfer rules. But each should be competing for a starting job in 2010.

* * * * * *

Depth chart will be announced after this afternoon’s team meeting.

    Great news about the add ons. I’ve been asking about Nagy forever. Now I know why the blog was so late in getting started.

  3. lava August 24, 2009 11:34 am

    Phillies are going to pay through the nose next year because they failed to offer our boy Shane the lucrative multi-year contract he deserved.

  4. lava August 24, 2009 11:35 am

    Garret impersonation right here. lol

  5. letsgowarriors August 24, 2009 11:35 am

    wats nagy’s eligibility?

  6. lava August 24, 2009 11:35 am

    Not even you ST?

  7. lava August 24, 2009 11:36 am

    I’m guessing Gary has 2 to play 2, but it is just a guess.

  8. letsgowarriors August 24, 2009 11:36 am

    2 to play 2?

  9. SteveM August 24, 2009 11:36 am

    Good morning/ lunch time, everyone!

  10. letsgowarriors August 24, 2009 11:37 am

    mapunapuna? LOL

  11. bstunna2002 August 24, 2009 11:41 am

    Isn’t he Vaka’s nephew or cousin I think the last name is Manupuna.

  12. letsgowarriors August 24, 2009 11:43 am

    yeah, hes related to Vaka. Josh Manupuna.

    unless Jonathan Mapunpuna is a totally different player.

  13. al August 24, 2009 11:43 am

    In green Manoa Valley our Alma Mater Stands,
    Where mountain winds and showers refresh her fertile lands;
    The flag of freedom beckons above her shining walls,
    To larger truth and service our Alma Mater calls.

    Blow the whistle already and let’s kick some arse!
    Go Warriors!
    Go Wahine!

    Welcome to the Warriors, Kaniela Tuipulotu and Jonathan Mapunapuna!

  19. haka August 24, 2009 11:47 am

    Man, the practice squad just got a major upgrade.

  20. al August 24, 2009 11:48 am

    letsgo…heard that the depth chart will be known this afternoon. i think the coaches want to review with all players on the bubble.

  21. Curt August 24, 2009 11:50 am

    So, how good are these transfers?

  22. letsgowarriors August 24, 2009 11:51 am

    i see thanks. starters are obvious to everyone. i just wanna see how the Wr/slots ended up and the DL rotation. we are also a little thin on depth at OL.

  23. Pride. August 24, 2009 11:52 am

    Offense is going to get a lot better, going against these three guys every day.

  24. al August 24, 2009 11:57 am

    curt….kaniela will start next year. nagy is an athlete and should contribute, if he hasn’t picked up leg speed (4.66) he may be a nickel or an olb and definitely on st’s. not sure about mapunapuna.

  25. LizKauai August 24, 2009 11:58 am

    al- get some, I nevah catch any…hear MAUI get planny. I’m getting a few halalu and akule.

  26. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc August 24, 2009 12:02 pm

    From the last blog:

    Al: I’ll stop by between appointments. As long as there’s coffee and an assortment of baked goods served and sold, that’s fine. If I eat anything heavier than that, I’ll nod off for the rest of the afternoon.

    It’s been interesting reading the interchanges over the past couple of days on the three topic threads.

    First – the Haka/Ha`a: Has anyone on the coaching staff or even here on the blog considered asking the Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies to provide some support in creating a unique and culturally appropriate chant? The new director whom I heard speak the other evening at a public lecture looks like he might have played some football himself back in the day. Perhaps there might be someone on his staff or a graduate student who would like to help out if the new director can link him up with Coach Mac & Jim Donovan.

    The other two topics can wait.

  27. jojo ® August 24, 2009 12:03 pm

    uhhhh, was there practice today….I’m so not in touch

  28. al August 24, 2009 12:07 pm

    why would you have gone?

  29. Curt August 24, 2009 12:13 pm

    Thanks Al.

  30. Rich2176 August 24, 2009 12:21 pm

    D-BESS Fantasy Watch

    Just saw this on the homepage of MSN.

    8. Davone Bess, WR, Miami
    Bess performed well as a rookie in 2008, averaging 3.4 receptions and 34.6 yards per game. He became a huge factor down the stretch when fellow receiver Greg Camarillo went down with a torn ACL. Bess averaged 5.83 receptions and 61 yards per game during the final six games of the year. Camarillo will be back, but I expect Bess to excel in his second year.

    Okay, back to work now….

  31. LizKauai August 24, 2009 12:24 pm

    Hi Rich!

  32. J-Dog August 24, 2009 12:27 pm

    Sweet! This is why we shouldn’t gas the players that decide to initially play for a mainland school. This is a nice coup of returning local boys. Welcome to the warrior family!

    I agree with the previous post that the practice squad definitely got an upgrade. Should make the boys playing this year that much better and keep these transfers in football shape.

  33. J-Dog August 24, 2009 12:28 pm

    Is Jonathan Mapunapuna from Mapunapuna?

    According to ST they resumed their 7am-9am practices this morning. I woke up VERY late as I was planning to go. Tomorrow is another day though!

  35. Kekoa (iPhone) August 24, 2009 12:45 pm

    Kazz ~ I’m waiting to see your Koakane impression.

    Transfers! Gooooo Warriors!

  36. al August 24, 2009 12:46 pm

    do you think moniz will surprise and rise to the #2 position?
    i like his quickness, confidence, and athletic ability.

  37. al August 24, 2009 12:50 pm

    kekoa…i did a kk impression last year, too. good thing i had the son to wake me up when the game ended.

  38. kama krab August 24, 2009 12:59 pm

    Howzit Everybody,

    ST, what is going on with David Hafoka. Is he still on the roster. Will he entered into the roster today. Just wondering.

  39. LizKauai August 24, 2009 1:02 pm

    C’mon COLT! (prayers needed?)

    “Two of the younger players stood out, although not necessarily for the right reasons: Marko Mitchell didn’t necessarily keep his momentum going from Saturday night, with a couple of balls bouncing off his hands, and Colt Brennan followed his rough game with a practice that looked uncharacteristically tentative. Coach Zorn’s comments after practice didn’t exactly offer a vote of confidence for Brennan.

    “Well,” he said, “I have always said that Colt is just trying to battle with Todd [Collins] for the number two spot. I think that we saw that Todd was not willing to bow down and give up his number two spot. So the competition right now is for the number three spot, and Chase [Daniel] is making a statement about that.”

  40. (Jesse) James August 24, 2009 1:13 pm

    Good afternoon Tsaikos…hope everyone is having a good day so far….

  43. Kazz August 24, 2009 1:38 pm

    If anyone hasn’t seen it, you should try watching “Locked Up Abroad” on the National Geographic Channel.

    It’s actual accounts of people getting arrested overseas, mostly due to drug smuggling charges. The actual people that got arrested are telling their stories and they have pretty good re-creations.

    It’s funny because I have NO pity for these people… 😆

    Odd thing though, it always seems to be a man or a woman from the UK getting busted in India, Mexico, or South America.

  44. FloridaTed August 24, 2009 1:39 pm

    Good afternoon, Tsaiko-Nation and Venerable, and Revered, Grandfather and Warrior Beat SenseiTsai-Meister, my heartfelt and belated congratulations.

    There seems to be a virtual, small avalanche of returning, prodigal sons of Hawaii coming back into the fold. These returning players are usually the first signs of a program on the upswing, it’s a strange phenomenon and pretty much under the radar still, but by all means, keep ’em coming.

    Well, so our Colt had some set backs, that’s life, now go out there and show everybody what you’re made off. You do good from here on out, it will only speak in your favor, but whatever you do, don’t pout and don’t panic.. Zorn ‘speak’ is always very cryptic, disguised as open and honest, but he plays it very close to the vest.

    I’ll go with wf2 analogy of the Warriors being sneaky good, but only for the first couple of games, after that, the cat’s out of the bag. I say 10 + wins, call me crazy, I can take it, lol.

  45. koakane™ August 24, 2009 1:41 pm

    howzit everybody only two weeks and warrior ball whoootahhhhh, getting moa exciting now.

    good points by pride he reminds us this is fball and that is our focus. go out and smack peeps around be dominant. last year or so not every player participated and it was apparent not all embraced the true meaning of the ha’a. so lets refocus, go all out and play hard.

  46. koakane™ August 24, 2009 1:45 pm

    kazz no worry kekoa call me and apologized already oh try wait it was for something else ahhhhhhhhhhhh neva mind. old injury he got from Willy Chai.

  47. A-House August 24, 2009 1:55 pm

    If the Ha’a is for the fans, why don’t fans get together and perform the Ha’a at every home game – of course, with the blessing of Aloha Stadium management – no different than having a high school band play/perform before the game (analogy only!!!).

    and, a mighty WELCOME HOME to the 3 newest Warriors!!!

  48. A-House August 24, 2009 1:58 pm


    you actually fall asleep at a Warrior game? even little kids around us stay awake to the end.

  49. curveball August 24, 2009 2:02 pm

    You think Colt has problems..Jets Sanchez first pass intercepted by a lineman who takes it in…..

  50. jojo ® August 24, 2009 2:10 pm

    It was a little after 8 and I was in the area, but I wasn’t sure if there was practice or not. Next time….

  51. Kekoa (iPhone) August 24, 2009 2:14 pm

    Right on KK! That’s the Warrior spirit!

    Al ~ Moniz shows real QB savy, and would make a very good #2. I would feel confident with him in a back-up role. He’s a little quicker to pull the trigger than GA, with better accuracy than last season.

    If tested, he could end up having coach Mack leave him in.

  52. al August 24, 2009 2:14 pm

    ahouse….of course i don’t.
    you don’t believe everything you read on this blog do you?

    i was only trying to make kk feel better about himself.

  53. al August 24, 2009 2:15 pm

    you do live in the area.
    next time pick me up, too.

  54. letsgowarriors August 24, 2009 2:25 pm

    according to the other paper, moniz and rausch split the 2nd team reps…

  55. AWP August 24, 2009 2:33 pm

    A-House: Ha`a by the Fans is an awesome idea! Put a leader on the Jumbotron and stream the words. It would be mind blowing!

  56. A-House August 24, 2009 2:33 pm


    your #52 – sometimes I am tempted, but know that some/many/most of certain Tsaikos posts are not always truthful, but can be hilarious.

    hmmmmm, where do you sit? will have to check this out with my binnocies on 9/4/09.

    2 or at least 3 Tsaikos have UH by a blowout of UCA, but I have some reservations in that they were a top 12 team last year and rated as high #8 in preseason. I believe the score will be closer to 24 – 15 UH, but will hope that the blowout predicitons come true – oh, great joy for me when I read the Saturday morning papers – remember that A-Houses and Midori7 are very poor loosers when it comes to Warrior ball.

  59. d1島 August 24, 2009 2:50 pm

    Good news about the returning players. Keep getting guys like that back and the school can start selling tickets to watch practice! Like Pride. says, they going make the offense better.

    I’d like to see Colt start the next preseasone game along with the 1st unit and see what he does?, just like the Jets starting rookie, Sanchez this evening aginst the Ravens.

  70. mctruck August 24, 2009 3:50 pm

    I don’t know, but when coach Zorn has to have his so-called starter play so much, one wonders if he’s not certain about his starter as well??

    August 24th, 2009 at 2:02 pm

  73. J-Dog August 24, 2009 4:13 pm

    What about the Booty? JDB

    I wonder if the 2-time Rose Bowl winner will be bumped because of Mr. Favre.

  74. J-Dog August 24, 2009 4:17 pm

    I think Leinart gets one more chance if he’s still with the Cards if/when Kurt Warner leaves/production drops.

    Or maybe the Cards just let Leinart’s contract expire and go in a different direction by drafting another QB prospect for the future.

  75. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc August 24, 2009 4:19 pm

    Checked with Aloha Stadium office earlier today. Their policies about coolers of any size have NOT changed. They are not allowed.

    Backpacks are okay as long as the owners permit security to search them for prohibited items such as bottles, cans & outside food. The only exceptions are baby food & bottles — but you have to have a baby with you.

  76. Jack Flash August 24, 2009 4:49 pm

    Jack Flash….Mahalo….

  78. FloridaTed August 24, 2009 5:01 pm

    If Sanchez wouldn’t have played for USC, he would have been a free agent at best. IMHO, there are very few NFL teams who know how to select a good QB. They all seem to have Cookie Cutter requirements, who seem to backfire more often then not.

  79. Jack Flash August 24, 2009 5:09 pm

    NFL scouts = idiots.
    Zorn messing with Colt’s natural abilities = idiot.
    NFL = same old same old every week.
    College Football = excitement, drama, and is definately where it’s at! Suffice it to say I am REALLY looking forward to next week.

  80. Kazz August 24, 2009 5:22 pm

    Jack Flash,

    Agree. We all love Colt. Heck, I was never a fan of obtaining autographs from UH players, but still yet the ONLY autograph I have is from Colt.

    Bottom line is, Colt is a big boy now and he’ll be fine.

    Time to focus in on our Warriors of the present and the task at hand!!!

  81. expat August 24, 2009 5:28 pm

    It is great to see talented football players come home. McMackin has made it clear that they will be welcomed back– and the more that do come back the more that might be inclined to stay in the first place rather than going to the PAC-10 or wherever.

    Of course, sometimes kids that we want to stay and play can’t get into UH and might have to *ahem* settle for a PAC-10 school then transfer in when they have enough credits. That works too.

  82. FloridaTed August 24, 2009 5:36 pm

    College Football over NFL? Hands down for College.

  83. Kekoa August 24, 2009 5:43 pm

    Talking heads over-analyzing Sanchez’s performance made all kind of excuses for his poor performance! Colt never gets that kind of consideration. Why can he not be given the time of day in this league?

    We all know that if Colt were given a fair chance at running the offense from the start, with the 1st team on the field, he would have a much better result. Since that will not happen, I still urge them to release him now, so he can move on. (…and then return one day to tear their a$$ up!).

  84. Kazz August 24, 2009 5:49 pm

    Colt should have ended up in San Fran.

  85. Kazz August 24, 2009 5:52 pm

    Talking heads over-analyzing Sanchez’s performance made all kind of excuses for his poor performance! Colt never gets that kind of consideration.

    Same story. Hawaii-bias, or lack thereof…

    UH-based athletes, for the most part, will be treated as “2nd Class Citizens”… always.

  86. Kazz August 24, 2009 5:55 pm

    College football is MUCH better to watch and more exciting to follow.

    However, in comparison to the NFL and their professionally paid athletes, the amount of politics and $ signs involved with student athletes in college athletics remains disturbing.

  87. Kazz August 24, 2009 5:59 pm

    So, with the overflow of students at UH Manoa and the amount of kids waiting for classes, where is the new President Ms. Greenwood amongst all this?

    Any statements from the new prez?

    Yeah I know she has NOTHING to do with it, but she’s in charge now.

  88. Kazz August 24, 2009 6:02 pm

    Ok so… there are more “bodies” at UH Manoa.

    Will there be more students in the stands or just more excuses for a lack of “freebies”? 🙄

    Liz Chun reports that:

    -Greg Salas will be on punt return.


    -The MAJORITY of the players voted to KEEP THE WAR DANCE… but according to Liz Chun it’s NOT the Ha’a, but the Maori HAKA.

    RE: The Maori Haka vs the Hawaiian Ha’a

    Personally, both are visually “cool” to look at, but for me, I was REAL happy that Brad Kalilimoku, Keala Watson, and Guyton Galdeira crafted an all-Hawaiian pre game chant as opposed to using the haka from the New Zealand rugby team the All Blacks and their “Kapa O Pango” chant, which was customized for them.

    With the Ha’a we had our OWN chant with Hawaiian words and movements based in hula (according to Guyton Galdeira in 2007).

    As ST mentioned, with no one really on the team to craft a new Hawaiian Ha’a in a limited amount of time, I can see that this was a compromise of sorts with those on the team that still wanted a pre-game ritual.

    I’m happy that the players voted to keep the Haka as part of Warrior tradition.

    Someday, they will release the words so any fan can chant with them – like maybe at a sold out UH/Boise ST game in October ’09? wonder how loud that would be?

    Feature article on Jake Ingram’s competition for long-snapper.

    Although he may have an edge in terms of years of NFL experience over rookie Jake Ingram, who is also competing for the long snapper position, Hodel says he doesn’t feel as if he is any more entitled to anything because of it.

    “Coming here, you have to start over,” the 31-year-old said. “You have something to fall back on because you’ve done it for so long, but any time you come to a new team it’s starting over. Guys have to get to know you, and you have to prove yourself out there on the field. So in a way, you’re kind of a rookie all over again. . . . . . Ultimately, you put it on yourself to do well, and however it shakes out, that’s what it is.”

  123. Garret August 24, 2009 7:10 pm

    David Veikune worked with the first team (he was MLB) for part of their last preseason game, but he’s going to be needed at OLB for their upcoming preseason game.

    The Browns are short at outside linebacker because of injuries to David Bowens and Titus Brown, meaning rookie David Veikune will see more reps there. A converted defensive end, he’s been working primarily inside this camp. Against Detroit, he worked with the ones while Alex Hall left the game for a while.

    Veikune said he feels more comfortable on the outside.

    “Both are definitely new positions, but I’d guess outside linebacker is a little more natural for me,” he said. “But I’ll play wherever coach wants me to.”

  124. Garret August 24, 2009 7:12 pm

    Bill Belichick still won’t give any hint as to which long-snapper might win the job.

    Q: [On the battle at the long snapper position between Nathan Hodel and Jake Ingram.]
    BB: I think they’ve both done a good job. They’ve been pretty consistent and there are always little things that you’re always working to improve, or maybe perfect is a better word. It’s such a specialized spot and job, but overall I don’t think … Really, we haven’t had any problems with it. I’m not saying it’s been perfect. There’re things that could be improved. They’ve been efficient. It’s a good competition. The extent that they’ve played, the operations men have been good with both of them in there, including practice. It’s a pretty good competition.

    UH 31 – CA 10

  126. Garret August 24, 2009 7:13 pm

    It looks like Miami’s 4th round pick is currently a starting WR, taking the spot Bess had until 2 weeks ago.

    Dolphins’ rookie receiver Brian Hartline is working with the first team offense for the second week in a row. Davone Bess and Greg Camarillo are both working with the second team.

    Our View: The team loves Hartline’s route-running ability, and as the preseason wears on it is starting to look like a realistic possibility the Hartline could start for the Dolphins. We will keep you updated on the battle for the starting gig, but don’t be shocked if either Bess or Camarillo overtake Hartline before Week 1.

  127. Garret August 24, 2009 7:15 pm

    Miami’s head coach seemed to indicate today that Hartline was the starter, Camarillo was his backup (which would mean that he’s the starting slot receiver) and Bess has gone from 1st team to 3rd team. The fierce competition means that 3 drops in 2 games really cost Bess, but at least he has some time to make things up before the season begins.

    Rookie WR Brian Hartline is still working with the starters in that all Ohio State wide out corp, but Sparano warned against reading too much into it, especially where Greg Camarillo is concerned.

    Sparano said they know what Camarillo brings to the table, have “a crowded bus” at the WR spot, and are mainly trying to give other guys work, and looking at some guys verses better competition. But he admitted he needed a longer look at Camarillo on Thursday….

    The Central Arkansas players took today off while their coaches reviewed film and finalized the game plan for the UH game. They will start practicing specifically for UH tomorrow.

    After giving the players the day off, University of Central Arkansas football coach Clint Conque and his staff spent almost all of Monday in the film room.

    They reviewed Saturday’s final scrimmage. They reviewed film from preseason camp. They started to evaluate the University of Hawaii, the first opponent on Sept. 4 in Honolulu.

    Serious preparations for the opener begins today.

    “We’re locked into game mode now,” Conque said. “There’s a different sense of urgency when you enter game week.

  130. Garret August 24, 2009 7:21 pm

    The Arkansas transfer that someone said was going to start at QB against UH may not even make the trip to Hawaii. With his injury, Central Arkansas basically does not have a backup QB! They have a true freshman at #2 QB right now, but the coaches (and the player) have openly said that they plan to redshirt him. The only other QB they have was moved to WR during the offseason, because they expected Park and the Arkansas transfer to be their QBs.

    Quarterback Nathan Dick, who has been unable to throw for about two weeks because of a triceps injury, will be further evaluated in practices today and Wednesday, Conque said. He said it’s a possibility he might not be on the traveling squad to Hawaii, leaving the No. 2 quarterback in a state of flux.

    “The 66 or 67 players we take to Hawaii are all going to have to be able to contribute if called upon,” Conque said. “We’ve always had a rule that you’ve got to be able to practice to play. Nathan needs to practice because he really hasn’t had a lot of work.”

  131. Garret August 24, 2009 7:22 pm

    “someone said” should be “some said” in post #130.

  132. Garret August 24, 2009 7:23 pm

    Central Arkansas isn’t sure how to prepare for UH because so many starters are new. They are studying the Florida and Notre Dame game tapes–I don’t think that either game was a typical game for UH.

    He said the UCA coaches were “chasing ghosts” a bit in evaluating Hawaii from video on the last couple of years in preparation for this year’s Warriors.

    “They return two starters on defense and six or seven on offense and their quarterback returns as well as their top two receivers and an All-American candidate offensive lineman,” he said. “They started out in more of a run spread last year but at the end of the year seemed to get back to their roots as a true spread offense.

    “But I’ve studied Notre Dame tape and Florida tape (former Hawaii opponents), and that’s a different experience for a UCA coach.”

  137. Kazz August 24, 2009 7:44 pm

    How many of these Central Arkansas kids have even seen a REAL beach?

    This trip will be an eye-opener for them.

    I said the same thing about Notre Dame, but from what Rocky Savaiigaea has been saying as of late, Central Arkansas will be humbled by the time the clock reads 0:00 in the 4th quarter!

  138. Garret August 24, 2009 7:47 pm


    If UCA’s starting QB gets hurt, they basically have no backup QB. The starting QB isn’t even the guy that was projected to start this season–he was supposed to be the backup but the transfer that was supposed to start is out with injury.

    So, if I was Mac I would unleash the pass rush and get the career backup QB worried about where the pass rushers were going to be coming from. If he gets rattled or hurt, then the D can focus on just stopping the run.

    On the flip side, Central Arkansas will probably try to establish the run to start the game and reduce pressure on their QB. If the Warrior DL cannot stop a D-IAA team from running the ball, especially a D-IAA team that was not a good rushing team last year, then the Warriors have problems. But I think that the Warriors will be able to take away the run, so it all comes down to the starter for UCA and how well he can handle the pressure of his first career start with no backup QB ready to take over.

  162. Garret August 24, 2009 9:25 pm

    Pomai and Curt,

    UCA basically relied on their all-star QB last season, but he finished his eligibility and is trying to make it in the NFL now. UCA had been counting on the Arkansas transfer taking over at starting QB, but he got hurt and basically missed all of training camp and still cannot practice. He will probably be back in time for their second game…but that would mean that he’ll miss the UH game.

    With the plan to have the transfer start at QB and have last year’s backup QB be his backup, they moved the #3 QB (a redshirt freshman) to WR. That made a true freshman the #3 QB, but he’s supposed to redshirt. With the projected starter missing almost all of training camp, that means that the backup will start and a freshman (who is supposed to redshirt and wasn’t even supposed to make the travel squad to Hawaii!) will be the backup.

    However, I would NOT get too confident. Partly out of necessity, UCA has been working on a rushing game–they didn’t run that much last year but their coaches figured that they would need to rely on the run this year. If they can run the ball against UH, their offense will be effective. However, like I said earlier, if a D-IAA team can run the ball against UH then UH has big problems.

    The main reason I’m worried about this game is that the strengths of UCA are the pass rush they get from their DL and their excellent special teams. That directly targets two weaknesses from last year, and we’ll see how much things improved. UH also has very little experience in their backups at many key positions, so any major injury could be a huge problem.

    The other factor is turnovers can change everything, and inexperienced players in their first D-IA game at Aloha Stadium could make mistakes. Neither Ingram or Dunnachie has played a D-IA game and a miscue there could be huge.

    Listening to 1420, Bobby C show, this morning, he was previewing UH’s offense and defense.

    Of the defense he said: “Very fast, they run to the ball, Fonoti is unstoppable in practice”. He goes on to say,”Fonoti is that good he’d should be playing in the NFL today”.

    Of the offense he said: “This side of the ball still have a lot of question marks, not as crisp as they were in the spring”. He goes on to say, “The offensive line hasn’t looked good”.

    He also let on that he was kind of baffled that the coaches kept Greg out of the last 11 on 11 scrimmage, when he thought that Greg should be getting more reps as he felt that Greg wasn’t game ready, yet.

    On the subject of Moniz: Bobby was pleasantly impressed with what he sees in Moniz. He says, “He throws the ball well, quick release, great pocket presence, where he avoids the pass rushers.”

    Basically what BC said this morning echos what many of the posters have been saying about the defense. What surprised me was BC observation of the Warriors on offense, where they haven’t got it in gear yet.

    With that said, UH over CA, 67-13. No, no, no…haven’t been drinking.

  171. Unkanesson August 24, 2009 10:13 pm

    KGMB and KHON should show another interview with Bryant Moniz in a few mins…

    Gotta say, his climb up the depth chart is a real nice “feel good story”.

    Hmmm he says Coach Miano made the initial call… Didn’t Rich Miano also have a hand in noticing another QB that had to arrive to UH as a “walk on”???

    Okay okay okay… enough with the Colt Brennan linkage… 😉

    But thinking back to the Spring, even though it was obvious to a lot of people that Moniz threw a nice ball and had nice movement in the pocket for a freshman, I personally thought he would be a victim of the #s game as back then Steele Jantz had not transferred yet.

    Fast forward to now, he’s in the mix to make some serious “noise” next season in 2010… Look out Shane Austin and Brent Rausch! P.S. You other schollie boys (Shutter, Graves, and Nielsen) better watch out too!!! 😉

    Good for him!

    I dont care if we beat the Bears by a point in the last second, a win is a win and remains HUGE.
    I predict we will.
    That doesnt mean the boyz from Conway are bad, but rather the warriors are better. The bears have a dedicated administration, good athletes and a grinding coaching staff that that pounds on the basics. You gotta be impressed with their 5-year timetable.
    The 2009 warrior team has the potential to improve over each game, so look for progress–we follow CA with the bottom team in the PAC and maybe in the BCS-sphere (no disrespect intended to WSU, just a reiteration of every known preseason pundit including the ones that dis Hawaii) and than travel to the friendly confines of sin city, where Hawaiians will prolly outnumber rebels….that gives us an additionall 4-weeks to mature before playing LaT, a very pivotal momentum game that wont lack for motivation.

    This is not the experienced 2007 team where we came out of the blocks sputtering and ran on 3-cylinders until we played Boise State.

    Nor is this the 2008 no-clue team that came out flat at the get-go and searched for meaning in frustration the remainder of the season.
    As I mentioned in a previous post this 2009 team has personality.

    Yeah, we have issues on the OL and Im not at all convinced that Greg’s second year is an “auto” in terms of better as it was for Colt.
    Nor am I sure that the buildup of our receiver corps has legs–ditto with our O coaches–there is no guarantee that they will be anymore efficient in their second year than they weren’t in their first….BUT, there are clear signs of chemistry on this overall team– and this element perhaps is the most intriguing factor that characterizes 2009.
    Im not sure if Gordie and Tormey’s presence has had more impact on the warriors than it has on its staff. But, there is something brewing afoot that is positive and a teak different.

    Either way, it’s up to MAC to put the glue on the wood so it sticks….that’s what a head coach does….winning that FIRST game is huge!

    Rainbow Wahine outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell says Jamie Houston gave some words of advice to her before leaving in that “don’t worry about mistakes”…

    As previously mentioned… it will be next to impossible to replace Jamie Houston, especially when Houston was on fire. Stephanie Ferrell showed some fine consistancy in some games last season.

    FRIDAY PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nationally ranked (#7) Rainbow Wahine RETURN to the court this Friday at 7pm!!!

    It’s funny because people in Hawaii clamor for “winners”, yet when one is produced year in and year out, there are some that take them for granted.

    Sure the Wahine lead the nation in attendance (PAID) over the years, but STILL, people need to go out and support the Wahine in person. Last season they reached the FINAL 8 in the NCAA tourney and while I do not think they will get that far this season, I think with the new size up front and on the outside, along with phenom Kanani Danielson having three more years to go I think it will be sooner than later before the Wahine get a shot in the Final 4 and dare I say a return to the National Championship before Coach Shoji retires.

    This season I’ll be really watching my fav, Amber Kaufman tear it up and knocking some opposing teeth out with that kill shot of hers! Hmmm.. wonder if she can beat her own service ace record from last season???? Don’t be surprised if she becomes the FIRST Wahine to become an All-American in two different sports!!!!!!!!!! 😉

    Wait… would she be the FIRST UH athlete male or female to have such the honor??? Hmmm….

    Fast forward to now, he’s in the mix to make some serious “noise” next season in 2010… Look out Shane Austin and Brent Rausch! P.S. You other schollie boys (Shutter, Graves, and Nielsen) better watch out too!!!

    Good for him!

    Kazz, somehow I don’t think it should be put that way. They are all team mates and part of the warrior team. They are not the opposition, but they all work together for a common goal, winning for UH. Whomever is selected to play, backup, etc, we should be proud of all of them. As far as the word “noise”, wrong word. Are we now cheering for individuals or the team??????

  178. Speaking of winners.
    Is anyone going to be twirling this year?
    I’m going to miss Shannon Dresser. Talk about a winner in an individual sport!

    Mechanic Finds “Favre” Goat in a Trunk

    Bizarre, bizarre, bizarre…a woman was intending to sacrifice a Brett-themed goat which was painted in Viking purple and gold, and had Brett’s number 4 shaved into its side.

    If you sacrifice a “Brett” goat, are you rooting for or against the Vikes?

    i don’t think we make the same mistake with UCA that we did with the 1st half of Weber State.

    After the Florida game, i’m sure the team was thinking Weber St. was gonna be a cake walk. I believe even Solly said in the press conference afterward that they (UH) over looked Weber St. a little bit.

    I think the boys come out, shake off the exciting jitters and get the ball rolling from the 2nd drive and on.

    Mahalo for your post about Dish, but I fired them since they couldn’t fix the reception in the other rooms of the house I had TV’s in. I have cable with a $4 mo. extra package that gets me ESPNU, CBS College Sports, and three regional FSN’s in addition to FSNSouthwest. BTW, the first TX game is only available PPV here. WTH!!

    If you own a Camaro, you can get a free pizza from Papa John’s. Short story, Papa John sold his Camaro to help his dad’s business (a long time ago), then wanted to get it back. Finally found it and wants to celebrate with other Camaro owners.

    In celebration of Schnatter finding his Camaro, Papa John’s will offer a free large, one-topping pizza on Wednesday, August 26, 2009, to Camaro owners. To redeem, Camaro owners must arrive at their nearby Papa John’s restaurant in their Camaro to order and pick up their free pizza. Limit one pizza per Camaro, and one visit per Camaro.

    Good grief its early…

    Got the ducks keeping me company here by the practice field as Coach Rolo walks some laps on the field.

    BTW, Whitey I didn’t mean it to come out as if I have favorites… I said from last season, with regards to the QB position, may the best man win!

    In this case, can’t help but acknowledge the way Bryant Moniz ascended up the depth chart.
