No plans to redshirt Reilly

The only red shirt Beau Reilly will wear will be the red jersey worn by UH quarterbacks during practices.

Coach Norm Chow said Reilly, a 22-year-old freshman who has yet to appear in a UH game, is not redshirting this season.

“We have six more games to go,” Chow said. “He knows that.”

If healthy, Ikaika Woolsey remains as the No. 1 quarterback. But Chow said he hopes to craft specific plays for Reilly. Reilly practiced as the No. 1 quarterback for three practices last week. Woolsey was the No. 1 quarterback in Friday’s practice, then made his sixth start of the season in Saturday’s game against San Diego State.

Eric Prater, also a 22-year-old freshman, is the No. 3 quarterback.

Although there was hope Jeremy Higgins would return this season, he is indeed out for the year because of a fractured left hand and injured wrist, according to Chow.

    I think we’ve seen the last of Ana.

  3. 4-Prong October 20, 2014 8:45 am

    i don’t get it. what special skills does reilley have (aside from possibly being able to complete passes) that woolsey doesn’t that would justify creating special plays for him (and not redshirting him) but not allow him to replace woolsey as the starter? Is he more mobile than woolsey? can he throw with both hands?

  4. Kifi October 20, 2014 8:48 am

    Elua? Or Ekolu?

  5. Stephen Tsai October 20, 2014 8:51 am

    Remember the old dilemma: You can’t get a job without experience, and you can’t get experience without a job?
    There will be opportunities for Reilly to get game experience.
    Next year, Max Wittek and Aaron Zwahlen enter the competition.

  6. Andrew October 20, 2014 8:53 am


    Next year’s QB competition should be intense. Hopefully the time off won’t affect Zwahlen too much.

  7. Bryson October 20, 2014 8:53 am

    I say that if Ikaika is not 100% healthy and isn’t able to do the things he would normally be able to do it would be best to rest him and let him heal..I know during the football season no player is 100% healthy but if they aren’t 100% able to use all their tools to the best of their ability then it could be detrimental to player and the team as a whole..

  8. tom-warriornation October 20, 2014 8:55 am

    Chow: can’t you see our offense is not working? we are at the bottom 5 in the country!

    We need a new QB now!!! And we need to start St. Juste for his breakaway running speed that can change the game! And we need to have 10+ plays to use Ewaliko’s running skills–what happened to that fly sweep; and let’s use him for WR screens.

  9. Kanak October 20, 2014 8:55 am

    Hard to imagine a true freshman that hasn’t played a real game in 2 years and will have 2 weeks of legitimate practice being successful… But then again, the team’s 2-5 with no significant improvement on O so what do we have to lose??? GO BOWS!!!

  10. Kanak October 20, 2014 9:02 am


    Pretty sure that Norm, if he keeps his job, will anoint Wittek the chosen one as he put all his hopes on getting him to play this year and just didn’t work out. Hopefully it works out… GO BOWS!!!

  11. gigi-hawaii October 20, 2014 9:08 am

    My advice to Coach Chow is:

    Let your conscience be your guide.

  12. gigi-hawaii October 20, 2014 9:11 am

    We will be listening to the game on the radio this Saturday. Hope there is some improvement.

    Meanwhile, we are wondering what has happened to the Seattle Seahawks.

  13. hatakeman October 20, 2014 9:20 am

    I don’t know if changing the QB will make a difference in the performance and results. Of course it would be interesting to see what would happen, but the lackluster offensive performance is more about Chow’s philosophy which is ball control beginning with a big running-back. In the Wyoming game Chow was compelled too use Diocemy Saint Juste because Steven Lakalaka got hurt. Lakalaka was cleared for the Wyoming game so it was back to the ball control game. Draw your own conclusions.

  14. boolakanaka October 20, 2014 9:21 am

    Ana? Ana who? Ana Tuiasosopo had the biggest triceps I have ever seen…cheehoo to the former monarch!!

  15. amela October 20, 2014 9:24 am

    What I don’t understand is that when the opposing QB lofts the ball in the air for grabs their receivers catch it. When our QB lofts it it gets intercepted, I don’t get it.

  16. Willie October 20, 2014 9:27 am

    Zwahlen was highly touted before leaving on his 2 year mission. The tie was with his Dad and Coach Chow. What happens if this tie no longer exists?

  17. MattyBoy October 20, 2014 9:29 am

    I seriously hope there is a coaching change soon. I really do. This boring boring football put on by Chow Von Appen has to stop. It’s almost as if he makes the game boring and poor on purpose to anger the fans.

  18. UHfan808 October 20, 2014 9:34 am

    Good morning, Tsai-kos!

    Idk I’m not the coach so I’ll leave it to him/them to decide.

    There must be reasons why that we don’t and may not ever know.

  19. Kifi October 20, 2014 9:35 am

    Great game by our Warriors. Turned the ball over three times and still hung on for only a ten point loss.

    Sometimes we need to trust our eyes. What do you see? Remember if we look at our team right down the middle, what do you see?

    Steven Lakalaka (Back-up to Iosefa)
    Ikaika Woolsey (1st year starter)
    Brendan Urban (Walk-on; not invited to fall camp)

    Moses Samia (Solid veteran starter)
    Simon Poti/Ben Fonua (Back-ups to Julian Gener & Garcia-Wms.)
    Taz Stevenson (1st year starter/Ttansfer)

    I think our boys are working hard and battling under dire circumstances.

    Go Bows!

  21. Andrew October 20, 2014 9:35 am


    Yeah I’ve been wondering it too that if there is a coaching change, would Zwahlen remain committed to Hawaii or change his mind.

  22. Kifi October 20, 2014 9:48 am

    Looking at this team down the middle. We started the season looking pretty good down the middle. But injuries have put us in a little bit of a whole.

    The Oceanic Cables are probably going to win the super bowl. Bwahah. 🙂

  27. Andrew October 20, 2014 10:21 am


    Yeah, the guy had no chance of catching Ewaliko even without the “hold”. I’m not saying they would have won if the touchdown counted, because the outcome of the game is on more than one play, but I think that it definitely had an effect on momentum.

  28. 4-Prong October 20, 2014 10:40 am

    It’s wasn’t a “hold.” It was a holding call that was called correctly.

    If chow is fired and Zwahlen goes to another school, then it is what it is. Zwahlen probably isn’t going to be The Savior of UH Football, based on norm chow’s track record of developing quarterbacks at UH.

  31. Andrew October 20, 2014 11:19 am


    There haven’t been that many QBs at UH under coach Chow so not sure if you can make a conclusive statement on his coaching development skills. I thought the development of Schroeder was very good. He was by no means a top tier QB like Colt, but he improved in his senior season and UH was one of the leaders in passing offense. You can’t really judge Graham either because he was injured most of his career here and didn’t really get much playing time. Woolsey….not that great of a start but he’s still young so that remains to be seen.

  32. Whats Up October 20, 2014 11:36 am

    Although Hawaii defense and special teams have carried the team to repeatable losses this season. Nevada’s QB Fajardo and Offense is way better than Hawaii’s QB Woolsey and offense. I expect a blowout loss with Woolsey at QB.

    Nevada 48
    Hawaii 17

  33. whitey October 20, 2014 11:43 am

    interesting to see that the Rainbow Warriors are 4 – 4 1/2 underdogs this Sat.

  34. WarriorNY October 20, 2014 11:43 am

    Just curious…
    If Chow is no longer with the team after this season, will Wittek also go to a different school? I’m pretty sure he can without penalty and will.

    Also, how in the world do you guys get your pictures on the right?

    Yikes, the Wolf Pack beat writer tweets:
    “Random: Nevada OC/ex-Hawaii QB Nick Rolovich had more passing TDs in one game his senior year (8) than UH has in seven games this year (7).

  37. Shoko October 20, 2014 12:26 pm

    Here’s what the Reno paper is reporting on the upcoming game with a notable trivia fact.

    “Here’s a random stat for you: Wolf Pack offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich, who played for Hawaii from 2000-01, had more passing touchdowns in one game his senior season (eight) than Hawaii has in seven games this year (seven). Rolovich passed for 543 yards and eight scores in a 72-45 win over BYU on Dec. 8, 2001. Both were single-game school records at the time (the passing touchdown mark is still No. 1 in school history, while the yardage mark is now third in school history).”

  38. Shoko October 20, 2014 12:30 pm

    Here’s another interesting fact I didn’t know. Actor, Beau Bridges, transferred from UCLA to UH to play basketball.

  39. oneseason October 20, 2014 12:33 pm

    As long as there is a chance for the Rainbow Warriors to be bowl eligible, it seems Coach Chow has a chance to show that he has rebuilt the playbook, coaching staff, and team to a level on par with what it was before he took over. At 2 wins and 5 losses, the margin is getting pretty thin for achieving this minimal expectation. On the positive side, the next three games should be among the most challenging of the conference season, so fans and UH leadership should be able to gauge relatively quickly whether this will be a season of redemption or a third disaster in a row.

  40. Andrew October 20, 2014 12:34 pm


    I thought it was kind of random and odd that they had a “notable non-sports alum” reference in the article. The article was pretty spot on though with the analysis for the upcoming game. I don’t know is it just me or does it seem like Fajardo has been at Nevada for a really long time…

  41. oldtimer808 October 20, 2014 12:35 pm

    You’re on it again Tiki808. You’re the entertainment guru. You certainly give us a glimpse as to the function of your vast impotent knowledge of all things trivial.

  42. Shoko October 20, 2014 12:45 pm

    Fajardo red shirted his first year and been at Nevada for a total of five years. He already finished his degree last year. I heard he’s taking one class and doing a lot of fishing this semester. Basically he’s majoring in football this year.

  43. st. anthony trojan October 20, 2014 12:50 pm

    Hmmmmm he could be a ‘retired former player’ with serious concussions problems…think maybe possible ??

  44. Former UH Athlete October 20, 2014 12:51 pm

    46… Nobody gives Reilly credit because he hasn’t played a down yet.

    If you don’t play him, you’ll never know.

    For Reilly’s sake, he needs to play significant minutes this year to make his statement if he’s going to be a factor in the future, otherwise, he’s going to be buried behind Wittek next fall.

    Coaches don’t recruit players to sit on the bench for 4 or 5 years. Unless they are complete duds in practice or physically not well enough, a coach should not hesitate to put a reserve in if the starter isn’t getting it done over multiple games.

  45. 4-Prong October 20, 2014 1:01 pm

    I tend to ignore most tiki’s posts. i’m not a fan of reading spam (terms of service and all). I say, put in reilly. If the light was going to turn on for woolsey during the season, it would’ve turned on by now. Hawaii is near the bottom of most offensive statistical categories. Might as well make the change now because there’s nothing to lose.

  46. oneseason October 20, 2014 1:09 pm

    When Coach Chow replaced Woolsey with Higgins the first time, he had Higgins almost exclusively handed off the ball. Quarterback substitutions will be “Much ado about nothing” if the offensive play calling remains unchanged.

  47. Andrew October 20, 2014 1:11 pm


    Yeah. It was pretty troubling hearing him say after the Wyoming game that he felt a lot more comfortable playing because he had a whole half to analyze the defense on the sideline. It’s not gonna work if he has to watch a whole half every game in order to be effective. I thought that the light had finally come on for him at that game because he played pretty well, but he digressed in the SDSU game. I do give him a ton of credit for his effort and heart playing injured because he did look like he was still in pain. I’d say give Riley a chance to show what he’s got. Bobby Curran seems to continuously knock the guy saying that he’s too skinny. I don’t know he doesn’t look that overly skinny to me. He’s tall but he looks like he has more mass than Timmy and Colt had.

  48. Shoko October 20, 2014 1:12 pm

    I think what I struggle with is whether its Woolsey or the coaching that is the contributing factor to the Warriors offensive woes, or maybe its a combination of both.

  49. Former UH Athlete October 20, 2014 1:15 pm

    Notes & thoughts:

    The biggest areas of concern from last year have gotten better (Oline and Defense). However, the QB issues has trumped all the other improvements that have taken place. I saw several more throws on Saturday, that, when placed in the correct area are completions, however, they were on the coverage side of the WR and the coverguy was able to break up the pass. As someone who understands the QB position, this is probably the most frustrating thing with Woosley this year. The WRs aren’t getting great separation, but on most occasions, there are clear windows to get the ball to the receiver, but IW is missing the target.

    I like both Lakalaka and St Juste, same as I said last year. Lakalaka has better vision and is more consistent, so he deserves to be the #1. St Juste definitely needs more touches. Metaphor coming: He’s a homerun threat that’s only getting pinch-hit duties.

    UH has been able to absorb the injuries so far… however I still think the most costly injuries have been Haynes and Stubblefield. UH lost both of their 2 legit deep threats before a game a played. Teams are stacking the box knowing UH Kemp and Pedroza aren’t going to get behind them and if they do, the QB struggles to hit them consistently.

  51. Kanak October 20, 2014 1:29 pm

    #54 #55

    The deficiencies are very clear and have been from Week #1, but to be at Week #8 now and still have almost no improvement has gotta be unacceptable. We hired Chow for this very reason, he was (is?) a offensive mind… GO BOWS!!!

  52. ArcumFortis October 20, 2014 1:29 pm

    55. I think you are right on with this assessment. We do not have deep threats to stretch the field and it makes us easy to defend. When other teams see us in man coverage they go long and often are successful. When we do the same we mostly come up incomplete or intercepted. So there is little fear in our opponents with regard to stretching the field. They can stack the box and stuff us right there.

    It seemed like the end of last year our offense was coming along well. We were becoming effective and there were even times we exciting and entertaining. This year we are back to ineffective and sometimes painfully boring. The coaching and game planning deserves to be looked at critically but also we just don’t have the weapons to be a successful passing team. Our QB accuracy is not good and our wideouts are not getting the job done. We have no speed outside. This is not an excuse for the limitations in our offensive coaching. But we are very thin in some critical positions. I would be surprised if our current wideouts are starters next year. I see Pedroza and Ewaliko in the slot next year and different players on the outside. We probably need JC help there in addition to Haynes and Stubblefield.

  53. Andrew October 20, 2014 1:33 pm


    Don’t forget to put the receivers in that mix. They have been doing a little better though the past couple games but still it’s tough losing three starters before the season even starts. I look forward to seeing Stubblefield next season. We could really use his speed right now.

    Things must be getting dire, as even the Warriors Blog is getting bogged down by Trolls spouting gibberish…I guess it must be okay if ST is allowing it.

    I think it’s sad to see the Warriors disintergrate in front of our eyes…The effort is there, but I think the coaching is very suspect. I think too much was made of Woolsey and he had his chances…Let’s give Reilly his opportunity along with Saint Juste.

  56. whitey October 20, 2014 1:39 pm

  59. tom-warriornation October 20, 2014 1:49 pm

    How about using Ewaliko as a wildcat QB with both St. Juste and Lakalaka in the backfield? We gotta try something new; what we got is NOT working!

  60. tom-warriornation October 20, 2014 1:51 pm

    This will be our version of the triple option–we need an extra weapon in our offense–hear that Norm?

  61. jeezy33 October 20, 2014 1:53 pm

    69. I like that idea… But for the people who want Ewaliko playing more to run routes, that ain’t gonna help much. On one of the INTs, he ran an awful route and was the reason the ball got picked off in the 1st place.

  62. st. anthony trojan October 20, 2014 1:58 pm

    Except for possibly Harding, none of the UH receivers would have started if we didn’t lose Kirkwood and the others due to injuries. Our supposedly best receiver has dropped many passes and catches only those which fall into his hands while on his back…What does that say about our receivers? I wish they’d give playing time to Bukoski and other receivers who probably run better routes and catch better than the ones we have. If there is no fear of being replaced, then they will continue to play sub-par. Woolsey just needs to be benched…period!

    then if that is true.. me have one or more questions… why not at the start of season..they not see his talent…n used it to the best for the team..where is the wide receiver coach..teaching to run routes etc…

    i not know what he does at ‘practice’ what does he do.. what does he practice…
    seems to me..when evaluation of players after spring ball.. him n harding probably the best on offense as athletes.. so why is it taking so long to utilize them both..more n more ??.. question not directed at you.. just thinking out loud here…

  68. cocobean October 20, 2014 2:17 pm

    FUHA. I tend to agree with what you’re saying but with your assessment of the RBs.
    How do you base your opinion that SL has better vision than DSJ? In the Wyoming game DSJ found the holes. He bounced to the outside several times when the play was to the inside and not available.

    Lakalaka in the coach’s mind fits his pound and ground philosophy better than St. Juste. If it were me, I’d start St. Juste to see if that can kick start the offense. He presents more of a challenge to the defense. With SL the D is not too worried about him running outside the tackles. With DSJ they have to beware of him bouncing outside and for runs called to the outside. Though I’d start DSJ I’d give SL an equal amount of carries.

    If there was a lesson to be learned from the SDSU game it was the amount of pressure their small speedy backs put on our D. It made our D very conscious of setting the edge at all times. It made our D more vulnerable to play action. It made their QB more effective than his talents indicated.

  69. Tempmanoa October 20, 2014 2:18 pm

    The holding call on Ewaliko’s touchdown was definitely holding and there should have been a flag. Referees are not going to make a split second judgement on whether the defender had a chance to catch the returner or not. This is easy to see it is not the holding in the melee of the offensive and defensive lines– this was wide open in space for everyone to see– the last chance at Ewaliko is brought down. that was a play the official had a good chance to see.

    Shane Austin sat on the bench for Chow but has thrown for 4,478 yards and hit 99 TD’s in the Arena League. All along he had the arm and accuracy. He has completed 367 passes out of 564 attempts for a 65% completion average. He has only 15 interceptions our of 564 attempts. You never know what you have on your bench until given an opportunity to sling it. Passing is rhythm. Allow them to do the Winston dance of hitting short quick slants and bubble screens with RB and TE slips. Go BOWS!!

    Haven’t really scanned the comments for this but…. IF you have not seen/heard yet, Utah St is now down to #3 QB this week vs UNLV. #4 is true Freshmen Kent Myers is now the backup.

    The MWC has no talent at QB this year. Grayson (CSU) is the best QB in the conference, but he is by no means a great QB.

    Just a terrible year for the MWC overall.

    Two types of players, honor students and talented students. The mix up on how Alabama does it every year are hidden in these statements. Their players are lumber jacks cutting woods in the forest. Not needed is ID in the jobs they do. They just want to play football in Alabama. High School graduates? They never heard of graduating high school. Just want to play at age 22 after years out of 18 years of age. This is Alabama. Why would Alabama football players need to know who was Thomas Edison? It don’t make sense. The key to being like Alabama is to follow their method. Pick players that are flunk outs in high school, but have no where else to go but play some collegiate football. This is the key to a better football team. Knowing this information, will take you a long way. Stop thinking Ma’a Tanuvasa, former UH football and Denver Broncos can become a dentist in Mililani High School or at the shopping complex. How did he get a DDS degree in football is a good question to ask yourselves. Think then assess who they are. I feel people will go a long way in football and after if they can discern who these college football players are.

    That offensive guru coach Dannyp touts in comment #55
    is like June Jones. He said, “I’m not really that into what the defenses are doing. ”
    So the qb does not have to read the defense per se, just take what they give him.
    Also his qb is only a sophomore. So if Chow wants to hire him as an OC, lure his qb, too.

    I used to enjoy the light-hearted comments posted by former players. They reminisced about their extracurricular activities and spoke knowledgeably of players and plays.

    As of late, I am finding fewer posts that are of interest. I have tired of the anti-Chow, anti-Woolsey, etc. posts. I am disappointed with the lack of wins, but I see no point in the constant negativity directed at the coaches and the players.

    I hope we do well at home Saturday. I hope Nevada screws up. I hope Rolo takes the night off. I hope the Warriors stand together and win.

    warrior world admin, please IP ban tiki808. all he’s doing is spamming the board.

  85. oldtimer808 October 20, 2014 7:32 pm

    I’m sorry Tiki808, I doubt that you graduated from UH or any other college. There is no clarity in the way you write. Your sentence structure is intermediate at best. As I said earlier you do provide entertainment value.

    The blog is starting to have the feel of an insane asylum.

    Clune’s stock went down after listening to him during the Inside Access Show.

    This was the first time I listened to him and I wasn’t impressed.

    First he followed the sheep in RK and agreed that there was no holding call on E’s kickoff return that was eventually called back because of the penalty, then laughing it off, and saying that if he said anything about the referee he would get in trouble with the league office. It was definitely holding and for the DC to say otherwise he loses his creditability with me. The irony is that he even said that he reviewed the film. IMO he would project a better image if he remained unbiased instead of being a sheep and going along with what RK said.

    Second he said Yap had an outstanding game, especially as the game went on.
    What game is the DC watching? In the pivotal 4th quarter the defense gave up around 140 yards of the total 280 yards rushing to San Diego State. From what I saw Yap wasn’t a factor. He didn’t make any big plays and the offensive line was schooling him. Overall I would say that Yap is having a dismal year with what 2 sacks in the first 7 games…that’s nothing to write home about. Plus he doesn’t seem to consistently have the big play ability as the other great DE’s (TL, DV) that played for UH. My question to the DC is why point out one player? Moses and Fonua had better games.

    Third he parrots everything that Chow’s says. We have to practice harder, we have to do the small things well…it begins on Wednesday. Personally I’m tired of listening to parrots and the same excuses after every Warrior loss. It’s bad enough listening to Chow.

    People that are looking at Clune as head coaching material should shoot higher.

    Howzit, Gang!

    Was waiting for the sun to come up… then was waiting for “one snap and clear”…

    My frustrations aside, I’m sure those in the program are even more frustrated than I am. With that being said, I hope all of our wounded Warriors will heal up good and quick. I hope our coaches will make the necessary adjustments NOW, to salvage this season. It can still be a positive one. But no make hardhead kine… just make da changes! Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like we could’ve won every single game this season… just no more offense. We supposedly played the toughest teams in our “preseason”. The rest of these should be challenging, but possible. We gotta get it in gear!

    Can, Warriors! Can!

  90. oldtimer808 October 20, 2014 9:19 pm

    The way I look at things is that I don’t coach neither do I play the game. I only support our only team in our state win lose or draw. If all the plays were executed as drawn up than there would be no ok less negative comments. I don’t put down our student/athletes as some bloggers have done. That is not pono. I’m getting tired of some of these bloggers who only have negative comments to make and have no clue as to really how to coach a team or any team for that matter. I hope our student/athletes don’t read the rubbish that permeates in this blog.

  91. pollypicador October 20, 2014 9:39 pm

    Another thing about Inside Access and Clune.

    Clune goes on to say (or intimates) “I don’t want to throw any of the players under the bus.”

    Yet he does any way. Hypocrite.

    He points out to Nelson getting beat on pass defense and E stopping on his route.

    In both these plays the players are exposed. They are exposed by the show and again by their DC. It’s also stating the facts. Gary with the Animals does the same. It’s called reporting what one sees.

    So why does one think it’s bad or being negative for a poster to write what he sees versus a show and a DC exposing the players likewise? No answer is good.

    About Fonua. If a person ever watched practice– the player that stands out, having a nose for the ball and batting down passes on the scout team and in one on one drills is Fonua. He very much practices like he plays.

    seriously, wtf is going on here?

  94. cocobean October 20, 2014 11:30 pm

    #132. Now you go to practice? I thought you posted earlier that practice was closed to the public. A couple of weeks back you mentioned you met an elderly fan while watching at UH road game. You described him as a season ticket holder, one who also attends practice. You used him to backup some of your views. You said something like I know practice is closed to the public but he said he does. And that he talks to Norm Chow all time after practice.

    Now you saying you also go to practices.

  95. Stephen Tsai October 20, 2014 11:46 pm

    Practices are closed so if anyone is giving a report other than Woolsey’s grandparents or the car salesman, then it’s not accurate.
    By the way, ahem, which blog host was right about Woolsey starting? Oh, yeah, this guy.

  96. cocobean October 20, 2014 11:48 pm

    Wow. Warrior World deleted 32 posts.

  97. cocobean October 20, 2014 11:50 pm

    and a couple more including one of mine.

    WarriorWorld: thank you for dumping out the trash!

  99. Stephen Tsai October 21, 2014 12:08 am

    Collateral damage

  100. cocobean October 21, 2014 12:15 am

    Stephen. Do you think Woolsey has some of the same problems Geno Smith has?
    The talent is there but something is amiss.

    Re-Witnessing football practices

    Either I am a pathological liar or the people I talk to are.

    But wait. How can I be? What gets me…is C calling me out. Is he that important?

    Evidence. I have…on another site… in minute details of practice reports. But then C (see#95)wants to dispute everything I said about attending practice. Fine. No skin off my nose. If a person wants to be jaded, let them be jaded.

    Another thing.

    About the elderly gentlemen that C writes about in his post, which I used to collaborate my point of view if practices were open or not…I only went what the elderly gentlemen told me. He seemed sincere. Brief description, elderly (around Chow’s age, Na Koa supporter, lives on Oneawa Street, he was also frustrated at watching the regression of Warrior football and that’s what lead the two of us into being a little chatty). That’s all I said.

    To me it was just an innocent post that C wants to shoot to the ground. So whatever. I hope he’s happy.

    lol, liar liar pants on fire….

  103. hatakeman October 21, 2014 4:42 am

    I watched the replay of the holding call during Ewaliko’s kick-off return touchdown run and there was no holding. Bad call by officiating.

  104. Stephen Tsai October 21, 2014 5:12 am

    It’s not just that practices are closed, that part hasn’t had to be enforced because nobody — nobody! — is showing up to be turned away.
    Many times the blog host and Kekaula are the only non-UH people at practice.

  105. 4-Prong October 21, 2014 5:40 am

    #104: god. are we still on this? why is it that nobody else thinks it wasn’t holding except the people here?

  106. Stephen Tsai October 21, 2014 5:48 am

    How can you say “the people here” think it was not holding when you think it was a penalty? Does that mean you’re not here? Why do people who spend more time here than others believe they are not regulars. I’ve got log checks, 4-Prong, and you’re definitely a regular.

  107. oneseason October 21, 2014 5:52 am

    #106 ESPN says SDSU was “holding” … 🙂

    “The Aztecs (4-3, 3-1 Mountain West) ran for 283 yards while holding Hawaii to just 90 and held a 457-264 advantage in total yards.”
