Ostrowski, Falemalu picked as captains

The UH basketball team had practiced for nearly two months and played several games when point guard Miah Ostrowski rejoined following the conclusion of the 2011 football season.

He was re-introduced as the team’s leader . . . and captain.

Ostrowski’s leadership in football isn’t as visible. He is not the “point” of the offense. His position, inside receiver, has been downsized in the transition from the four-wide offense to the pro-set attack. But Otrowski demonstrates a work ethic that is admired by teammates. Players want their leaders to lead by example and play through adversity with grace. Ostrowski does both.

No wonder Ostrowski and defensive end Paipai Falemalu were selected, by an overwhelming majority, as captains for the 2012 season.

The late composer Marvin Hamlisch made a comment that transcends to the sports world:

“I’m not one of those people who says, ‘I never read reviews,’ because I don’t believe those people,” Mr. Hamlisch said. “I think they read ‘em. These songs are my babies. And I always say, it’s like having a baby in a hospital, taking a Polaroid and going up to someone and saying, ‘What do you think?’ And he goes, ‘I give you a 3.’ That’s what criticism is like. You’ve worked on this thing forever — ‘I give you a 3.’ And it’s part of you. That’s the bargain you’ve made.”

Rest in peace, Mr. Hamlisch.

    Woo Hoo…top fitty!!!

  41. (Jesse) James August 7, 2012 9:19 am

    Congratulations to Paipai and Miah….and equal props to Mr. Graves for his making lemonade out of lemons. That’s the kind of guys you like to see in this sport.

  42. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 9:24 am

    I’m sure Graves is disappointed, but he has a good attitude.

    And he’s on track to graduate in December.

    That says something for the summer school program. Graves and Dunnachie will earn degrees in 3 1/2 years.

  43. (Jesse) James August 7, 2012 9:26 am

    ST #43 Exactly my point. The guy is unselfish and just wants to contribute anything he can to help the “TEAM” win games.

  44. lowtone123 August 7, 2012 9:31 am

    Congrats to Miah & Paipai. The two of you are on the verge of having huge senior seasons. GO WARRIORS!

  45. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 9:49 am

    Journalistically, we have to use their last names.

    But I think they’re known more as Miah and Paipai.

  46. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 9:51 am

    Will it be on the grass field or ching field?

  47. Haleakala August 7, 2012 9:53 am

    David Graves will be successful in life!

  48. papajoe2 August 7, 2012 9:55 am

    So if Graves graduates in December, he could then transfer to any school and play immediately for his remaining year, right? I’m just happy he has a great attitude and is staying with the Warriors. If the wr switch doesn’t work out, then maybe, after December, he could transfer to a team looking for a quick fix. Rolo? Then again, he could be here at next spring ball’s practices and improve even more. Good luck to whatever he chooses. Imua Warriors!

    So, Schroeder’s #1, Higgins is #2, Graves is #3… Nothing is certain, except change.

    What was the best season that Hawaii has ever had running the Pro set/style or something similar?

  52. WarriorNY August 7, 2012 10:19 am

    Thanks for the Scoops on Clarissa Chun. Tough draw but “dat girl is cut” so “can handle”.

  55. Kevin August 7, 2012 10:53 am

    Too many kine “can handle”, but not cute. Also too many “cute” but NO can handle.

    Combo of both, WINNING!!!!

  56. hawaiiwins August 7, 2012 11:03 am

    Anyone knows if the Haka is the thing of the past, too??

    Go Warriors!!

  57. papajoe2 August 7, 2012 11:16 am

    With the r&s that we had over the last few years, the NFL mostly has a pro set or west coast set of offense. This is what coach Chow runs or similar. No wonder our qbs cannot make the NFL inspite of racking up great statistics. System is just different and less time to adjust in the NFL while the game itself is much quicker.

  58. madeinhawaii August 7, 2012 11:22 am


    We got closest to getting a QB into the NFL player ranks with the RnS than anything else.

  59. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 11:24 am


    seems like it. only thing is i hope we are able to recruit well enough to make the pro-style offense a success. it’s not the easiest offense to work with even with great recruits. just look at Washington.

  60. papajoe2 August 7, 2012 11:26 am

    mih, I concur. Still hoping for Colt but may need a miracle. Who knows, maybe Schroeder will have a chance with Coach Chow’s teaching.

  61. 3-Prong August 7, 2012 11:33 am

    #57 #56 Kevin, good looking too, but I meant Cut. Dat girl got some guns on her.

  62. Independent Thinker August 7, 2012 11:35 am

    Unlike most of the people here, I have no reason to trust the judgment of Chow. As far as I am concerned, he has no record of accomplishment as a HC. This being the case, Chow needs to earn any kind of respect I give him. Anyone silly enough to argue Chow “molded” Heisman winners is clearly not present on this here earth as these Heisman winners would have won the Heisman even without Chow. This was USC, after all, where Chow coached as an assistant. The talent that flowed to USC flowed there because it was USC, not because Chow was there. Ok. Enough about Chow. Now, back to the QB problem. Here is the problem: the guy selected to be QB warmed the pine at Duke the entire time here was there. This should tell you something. If he wasn’t good enough for Duke, which isnt a football powerhouse, then how can he appear here and take the starting position. In Higgins we have a proven talent. Same goes for Graves. Higgins bring something extra though. In Higgins, we have a great local player who can lead the UH to success. Too bad Chow missed the boat on this one. Well, it will only be a matter of time before Chow VonAppen is shown the door, oops, uh, er, ah, that is, I mean, uh, Chow is shown the door. Best of luck to the Bows!

  63. madeinhawaii August 7, 2012 11:40 am

    Looks like the best record we ever had running a pro-set type offense was under Tomey in 1981 at 9-2. UH only played 3 road games that season. Won all three. The year before they went 8-3… then they went down hill for a couple of years and went 8-3, again, in 1984.

    Then Wagner came to town with OC Paul Johnson in ’88 and took the team to a 9-3 record… topping that a few years later with Hawaii’s first top 20 ranking and an 11-2 record.

  64. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 11:44 am


    Is Utah St. a powerhouse football program?

  65. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 11:45 am

    I’m sure Chow has many sleepless nights worrying if he has earned the respect of Independent Thinker.

  66. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 11:47 am

    We don’t need his respect…Just his money for season tickets. Continue to doubt but do so in the stands. Mahalo

  67. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 11:48 am

    I think that whomever the quarterback, UH will be an underdog against USC.

    And I think that whomever the quarterback, UH will be a favorite against Lamar.

  68. WarriorNY August 7, 2012 11:49 am

    Independent Thinker,

    Are you Warrior in Georgia from yesterday’s blog???

  69. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 11:52 am


    So how do you explain a program like Notre Dame? Talent flows like nectar there but they have been irrelevant for a while now. Same with Texas for the past few years.

    Obviously coaches and coaching have something to do with it.

  70. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 11:54 am

    Like many, I thought UH would win at least nine games last year.

    That didn’t happen.

    As I recall, there were widespread cries for a coaching change.

    That happened.

    Can’t look back now.

  71. Bleed Green and White August 7, 2012 11:54 am

    Independent Thinker:

    Wow! I could possibly understand your lack of faith in Chow as a head coach, I get that, however, to give him no value in the Heisman Trophy winner he mentored at USC is ridiculous.

    Carson Palmer would have been Jordan Palmer without Chow.

    Matt Leinart wouldn’t be in the NFL without Chow. Look at him, he’s barely hanging around as it is.

    Reggie Bush, well, he was a stud.

    Do not discount Ty Detmer’s Heisman Trophy with Chow at BYU.

    As far as your Schroeder argument, I get that, in fact, I kind of agree. The kid couldn’t get on the field at Duke, never threw a single pass in three seasons….and Duke SUCKS at football!!!!

  72. WarriorNY August 7, 2012 11:55 am

    I think GAWARRIOR, WARRIOR IN GEORGIA, and INDEPENDENT THINKER are all the same person…

  73. Warrior Dave August 7, 2012 11:56 am

  75. Ryan_12177 August 7, 2012 11:57 am

    Why is UH not looking to have Kyle Niro fill in as the temporary punter? I know he was a punter in high school…

  76. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 11:59 am

    I’m old enough and have done this long enough to know that being neutral is the way to go.

    When JJ decided to leave, he called to say that change was good — for coaches, for fans, for reporters.

  77. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 12:02 pm

    I’m sure Niiro will get a shot at punter.

    The first three days, he was taking the snaps as the punter (although not actually punting).

    But, hey, might as well let Dunnachie kick away. It’s not like they have to worry about overworking him.

  78. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 12:05 pm

    On Saturday, I asked to speak to Muir.

    UH sends me Niiro.

    Do those names even sound alike?

  79. Redzone August 7, 2012 12:11 pm

    ST I think you are right.

    congrats to Paipai and Miah.

    I like players like Graves who puts the team first. Still I think you need more than one quarterback to finish out the season.

  80. Independent Thinker August 7, 2012 12:13 pm

    I post from time to time, but I have no idea what you are talking about regarding Georgia etc. Frankly, I don’t care. As for Chow remaining awake at night, that would be on you, Tsai. You see him regularly so you would be in the best position to know whether or not he is getting enough sleep, and so I leave that to you. VonAppen, I mean, er, uh, Chow, has a great gig, easy money, and doesn’t want to see it come to an end. Does he stay awake at night worried about this? If he is human, then yes, this would be likely. I’m not worried about Chow’s sleeping habits. This is of no concern to me. I would like to see the team succeed. To this end, I have concerns. To the rest, I leave these matters to you all, and especially, to Tsai, since he attempted what appeared to be the beginnings of an argument in support of Von, uh, er, I mean, Chow.

  81. manoa#1 August 7, 2012 12:17 pm

    #63 i agree with you but what da hell chow missed the boat on a couple of other things also. maybe that’s why it took him so long to become a head coach it’s gonna be a long season by the 3rd game i bet higgins will be da man.

  88. Whats up August 7, 2012 12:37 pm

    Independent Thinker,

    I can understand your concern, but I have a hunch that this is not the first time Norm Chow has picked a QB for HIS offense. Pete Carrol was the HC and Coached Defense, Not the Offense, which means that Chow picked the starters to include the QB at USC, in case you didn’t know. In this new type of Offense (Pro Set) Higgins and Graves just don’t have the knowledge and experience at this time to run it effectively yet. I’m all about local boys playing (Higgins) but we should be objective and not let emotions dictate judgement over what logical or best for the team at this time. As of right now I can’t pass judgement on Chow right now because the season hasn’t been played and it usually takes 4-5 years for the previous coaches recruits to out and current coaches recruits and (New Offense/Defense Systems) to take over the program.

  89. Shoko August 7, 2012 12:43 pm

    Well, anything can happen from now until August 1st.

    Chip Kelly made a reference to his QB situation (Bennett or Mariota) by quoting Sam Rutigliano: It’s like a teabag, you don’t know what you’ve got until you put it in hot water.

    When’s scrimmage, again?

  90. WarriorNY August 7, 2012 12:48 pm

    Writing styles…

    Just saying, “W in GA” and “IT” have very similar writing styles(which is actually very similar to Lanaiboy)… But as ST said so eloquently, Coach Chow doesn’t lose sleep over impressing armchair QBs. Let’s give the guy who has 40 years of experience the benefit of the doubt when it comes to choosing a starting QB…

  91. madeinhawaii August 7, 2012 12:50 pm


    “August 1st?” … You gonna wait a full year? Planning to sleep through this season, eh?

  92. Bryson August 7, 2012 12:52 pm

  95. madeinhawaii August 7, 2012 12:56 pm


    Royce just posted a picture 17 minutes ago of himself with the Jets going to see a movie.

  96. Independent Thinker August 7, 2012 1:07 pm

    If anyone here seriously thinks the HC, e.g., Carrol at USC, does not have the final say about who will start at QB, speak now so we can be entertained. VonAppen might have worked with the QBs, but it is Carrol who ultimately decided who would start. It was also Carrol who recruited the blue chips, not Von Appen. This has been the way of the game since it first started. Since the HC is ultimately responsible for all facets of the program, e.g., see Penn State and Paterno example, the HC gets to decide the QB rankings, not the assistants. It was entertaining nonetheless to read your post, Whats Up. It gave hope to the Tsaikos that VonAppen really did decide who would start at QB at USC, even if only for a fleeting moment.

  101. WarriorNY August 7, 2012 1:23 pm


    Royce is still on the team. The Jets are decimated at WR this preseason so he may see extended time in preseason games. I gotta be honest, I think Royce’s chances of making the team are slim but he’s definitely made an impression on the coaching staff. I’ve heard Rex Ryan speak about him a few times in interviews…

  102. SAWARRIOR August 7, 2012 1:29 pm

    #63, Carson Palmer was nothing special until Chow groomed him. Phillip Rivers was nothing until Chow went to NCST and groomed him and, NCST is NOT USC. Chow turned Vince Young into the NFL rookie of the year when Chow was with the Tennessee Titans. Vince Young regressed after Chow departed. Go look up and see how Phillip Rivers credits Chow for his improved play. I’m not a big Chow fan,but u got to give him props. At least a little.

  103. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 1:30 pm

    People can say or think whatever they wish. I’ve got no problem with that. But when somebody makes a self-important statement about people needing to earn his respect, it does open the way to: Who are you?

  104. oldtimer808 August 7, 2012 1:30 pm

    If you’re trying to make an informed, intelligent comment than you are way off base in trying to make a VonAppen model to Chow. Chow is in no way shape or form a VonAppen. Ok Steve got it.

  105. oldtimer808 August 7, 2012 1:32 pm

    Independent Thinker

    I have to agree with Tsai and ask the same question. Who are you? Maybe a USC coach when Carroll and Chow was there from your response, right? Since you are so positive that a Offensive Coordinator that has nationwide respect has no say on the final decision on the offensive side of the ball, especially the QB. Come on, Please, Pete Carrol was not a QB coach and Offensive genious thats why he hired Norm Chow to run the Offense and help USC out coach other teams to win some national championships. I’m pretty sure they did decided together as a collective who starts and who is the back ups on both side of the ball. But to stay Norm Chow didn’t have a say and most likely the final say on who starts on the offense wouldnt be accurate. I mean, Norm Chow only recruited groomed a few Heisman QB’s and coached on a few national championship teams, so what does he know right! Being USC brings in the recruits not Pete Carroll by himself. Because USC still gets top recruits and Carrol is not there anymore is he? So, please enlighten all of us on how Chow is a Von Appen failure already before anything has happened and the season has started? You obviously have inside information about Norm Chow is going to be a failure? So please share?

    No worries, braddah. It sort of looked suspicious tho. Wouldn’t want ST to think I was the culprit and ban me from Tsaiko land.

    haha! No worries, Kekoa! I was a soldier before a musician. I still live certain aspects of my life according to military logic and training. Don’t know who it is, but I could venture a guess or two.

    I’ve been more busy lately with the keiki being back in school, and healing up from this slight mishap from a few days ago, while helping the a/c dude install some new stuff in the attic.

    I read while at the Titans Chow didn’t want Vince Young to start, he thought Kerry Collins was a better quarterback.

  133. protector August 7, 2012 2:50 pm

    I didn’t care which leader would emerge. Now that it’s Schroeder, I’d like to see him help engineer the Trojans’ demise. It can be one of those defining moments in Warrior Football history. I heard an interview of Barkley last week with a fan masquerading as a sports reporter. He was asked about the Heisman Trophy, national championship, etc…you can figure out how it went. I’d like to see what questions he’d pose if Hawaii pulls it out and Barkley’s dreams of a Heisman and national championship get derailed / fall by the wayside in the first game. I can dream, can’t I?

  134. ruffles August 7, 2012 2:52 pm

    independent thinker is so far off base, it’s funny! gotta give him credit though, he sure knows how to rile people up, but I guess that’s the whole point of troublemakers.

    Wahine picked to win Big West volleyball title

    By Star-Advertiser staff

    POSTED: 12:07 p.m. HST, Aug 07, 2012

    Big West coaches are picking Hawaii to pick up where it left off in volleyball 17 years ago.

    The Rainbow Wahine finished first, receiving all nine opposing coaches’ votes, in the Preseason Coaches Poll released today.

    Long Beach State, which has won 12 Big West titles, is next and Cal State Northridge third. Cal Poly, picked seventh, received the other first-place vote.

    To Mr Tsai and everyone here on the blog, I’m sorry. My son can get a little cranky at times when I don’t serve him his breakfast on time.

    I ask all of you to pay no attention his posts. He’s doing it to gain attention and to get back at me for being a terrible single parent. Honestly, he’s a sweet and loving boy. He’s very cordial when you get to know him.

    My son has been a huge fan of Rainbow Football ever since he was in the 4th grade. When we could afford it, my late husband and I would take our son, along with his imaginary friend, to games at the old stadium. We’d always buy two bags of those wonderful boiled peanuts for them both and watch some exciting games. (My son swears he only ate one bag every time)

    My neighbor’s husband reads this blog all the time. He said from time to time all of you gather for a party before games. If he’s willing, may I have my son attend one of your parties? I’ll make sure he brings food and refreshments to share with everyone.

    Thank you everyone for putting up with my son’s antics. You may ignore him if you so choose.

    New shopping center planned for Pahoa. (Times are a-changing.)

    PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) — A $20 million shopping center is being planned for Pahoa.

    The 104,000-square-foot planned development would include a supermarket, retail shops, a restaurant and a medical clinic.

    Hawaii Tribune-Herald (http://ow.ly/cNXkF ) reports that Pahoa residents are being asked to submit recommendations so that the shopping center can reflect the history of Pahoa town. Project consultant Jon McEvlaney says this will be done through public meeting and emails.

    Landowner Bryson Kuwahara has requested to change the property zoning from agricultural to urban.

    Pending approvals, McElvaney says construction would begin sometime next year.

    151 punchbowl: Thanks for the recap. I know NC has had a long history of accomplishments including grooming a number of QB’s to play at the top level. It’s good to see the listing of his highlights. I for one feel fortunate that Norm Chow is the Warrior’s Head Coach. In my book, he has done everything right since coming on board.

    people will post things with no other intention except to lead you to a fire and watch yo burn.

    If it smells like a steve, acts like steve, looks like a steve, etc. it is a steve.

    Bottom line… we are here to support and at times criticize. However, it’s obvious when people post things outside those lines and are only meant with hatred for whatever reasons. Be smart gang…ignore the steve’s or steve like posts (which I began calling the “steve jobs”) as if it’s the last piece of poke’ wreaking of stench…

    cause if you go for that poke’ all it’s gonna do is leave a bad taste and spoil something that we all like.

  157. SAWARRIOR August 7, 2012 4:49 pm

    #138. This is true from what i’ve read too, and Chow was right about Kerry Collins at the time being the better QB (Young couldn’t, and still can’t read a defense), But Chow and Fisher got placed in the position that they HAD to start Vince Young because of the meddling owner. To his credit, Norm Chow still got the best of the situation, and coached Young to the NFL Rookie of the Year award, proving to me again the man knows how to coach QBs. On a side note, Norm Chow didn’t want to even draft Vince Young, he wanted Matt Leinart (the Titan owner wanted Young). IMHO, Matt Leinart would have been a different QB in the NFL if Chow would have gotten him— Leinart got his confidence zapped in Arizona, of course IMHO.

  158. Stephen Tsai August 7, 2012 5:23 pm

    Derek said afternoon practices on base are closed.

    Chow is an exciting new coach for Warrior Football! We’re fortunate to have his expertise! He has put together his staff and they’ve mapped out a plan for winning not losing!

    I’m excited for this FB team but am not denying that they will have a long hard road ahead of them. No one here is in denial. No one here thinks it will be a cake walk this year.

    UH is not a monied program but its fans are passionate about the school and it’s football team! Let’s get behind the team and support them! If we are True Warrior Fans we support the team!

    Go Warriors!!!

    First phase will be a closed contest of only the participants. Second phase will be a repeat with identification as a multiple choice (if the first phase was too difficult). Third phase might be more public… if there is a 3rd phase. 😐

    Photos must be received by this Saturday. stevem.hnl (at) gmail.com

    Went to my first practice under the Chow regime today. It’s quite different than practices under the former coach. For one, the music is really loud. Really loud.

    QB #8 seems like he is on a whole different level than the other QB’s. Next year should be interesting.

    I notice that Chow isn’t the ra ra ra yell scream yell type. He seems rather calm. On the other hand, there are 2 coaches who are polar opposites lol. Not sure of the coach’s name but there is one guy who I thought would blow a gasket. I don’t know if he was super angry or super happy or both.

    Anyway, lots of work needs to be done. Defense looks to be our bread and butter.

  179. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 8:19 pm

    the operative word is…. perserverance. and kindness. plead if necessary. threaten if you must. its only right. you did the work, now collect the proof. you can do it. Yes you can!


  183. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 8:24 pm

    remember brudda Fields, San Mateo would do it if Kiffin was asking. its only right. its your future.

    What is up with these transfers? Is it the players not knowing what is going on, or is it the schools? It is pretty frustrating. Not quite sure who the frustration should be directed at though. If you are transferring, you have a responsibility to know what needs to be done too, right? Then again, I have also seen how slow institutions of higher education can be administratively.

    Not holding my breath at this point.

    Ok, I looked at the HA website. It’s Demarest. I think that guy is a little crazy. If you want a coach with intensity and in your face personality, he seems to be that guy. lol. Was good fun watching him. Not so much fun if you are a player I imagine. At times I felt a little pity for them.

    As for Chow, it could be the music was really loud.

  205. al August 7, 2012 8:46 pm

    mo…tell the hubs thanx for dropping the bos off.

  206. al August 7, 2012 8:47 pm

    bos = box

  207. mo808 August 7, 2012 8:47 pm

    Ms White was my history teacher! Best teacher that ever made me think about current events.

  208. kev-1 August 7, 2012 8:47 pm

    There was footage of Coach Chow blowing serious steam out of ears the other day on one of news channels. Not sure if that was file footage or recent. Braddah looks like he can yell.

  209. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 8:47 pm


    Yes, I was there. If I do make it out to another I will say hello. Glad you made it out today to watch. Watch out for ants.

  210. al August 7, 2012 8:48 pm

    iwwthm….special teams coaches are like that

  211. gmahoney August 7, 2012 8:52 pm

    Yep, Mo’s a Tita. I would know….

  212. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 8:53 pm


    gotta remind the transferees to bring a certified copy of their birth certificate, in fact all of us need the certified copy of birth certificate starting now to get our driver’s license renewed now. you won’t be able to get a driver’s license, even if you were born with the person in the office. is that insane or what?

  213. mo808 August 7, 2012 8:55 pm

    213 IWWTHM, I thought the music was great! Some of it rap (which I don’t like per se) but it fit the mood and tempo of practice.

    Oh yes, the ants said hello about the last half hour of practice…that’s when I started to do my samoan slap dance.

  214. mo808 August 7, 2012 8:58 pm

    Al, the third time was the charm! Thank you’re better half for her graciousness at the drop off! We have wonderful spouses who put up with us!

  215. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 8:58 pm


    189, 195, 213.

    gotta full on up da twitch muscles brudda hates me. 😆

  216. mo808 August 7, 2012 8:59 pm


  217. mo808 August 7, 2012 8:59 pm

    Hi gmahoney! One tita to anadah!

  218. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 9:03 pm


    i think the music is a good thing. gives great energy to the practice. im sure the players appreciate it as well.

  219. gmahoney August 7, 2012 9:08 pm

    Howzit, Mo! How many wake-ups?

  220. SteveM August 7, 2012 9:09 pm

    Looking at the young Tsai-ko photos I have now, the most difficult to guess often can be identified by the facial expression… not just the “eyes”, but similar. Yeah, mo808’s easy to spot, so I need more titas… 😆

  221. mo808 August 7, 2012 9:09 pm

    IWWTHM Yep, I noticed a few of them to the far left (diamond head) of field moving in step to the beat in sic. Thought hey, whatever motivates them it’s all good.

  222. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 9:10 pm


    with Kaumeyer leading the D

    Demarest leading special teams and jumping around

    and Daronte Jones bring all his UCLA and Bowie St experience to da Warriors,

    no wonder there is some cracking on the D

    and like Paipai said, we going Shock the World

  223. mo808 August 7, 2012 9:12 pm

    gmahoney, 25!

    I wish I had the luxury of going up and watching practice every day till the start if the season. But, at least I had a chance to go today!

  224. mo808 August 7, 2012 9:14 pm

    gmahoney, did you and konamae send you high school photos in yet!!!

  225. gmahoney August 7, 2012 9:15 pm

    Working on it…..

  226. gmahoney August 7, 2012 9:15 pm

    Working on it…..

  227. mo808 August 7, 2012 9:17 pm

    Alrighty then!

  228. jm2375 (Infuse) August 7, 2012 9:20 pm

    Iwwthm & mo808 – you guys didn’t meet a couple of weeks ago?

    Anyway, had one 4.4earthquake here in SoCal about an hour ago.

    Nytal! Going to see UCI & Azusa Pacific tomorrow.

  229. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 9:26 pm

    g’nite Tsaikos.

    I’ll say a little prayer for you, Ronnie.

    wishing you nothing but good luck in your adventure for the golden paper.

    kinda sucks when you gotta depend on someone else. its like that in life.

    live with it, bro. do what you must. you know how to do that!

  230. mo808 August 7, 2012 9:27 pm

    Jm2375 huh? At Maple Garden or Club Genji? If so, my faux pas!

    Keep safe Jm2375 & Screecher!

  231. lava August 7, 2012 9:30 pm

    BHF2, I feel your enthusiasm, but easy does it. The world is thinking our Warriors will have a losing season. I’d prefer to keep expectations low, in fairness to Chow, because of all the uncertainty surrounding nearly every position.

  232. mo808 August 7, 2012 9:31 pm

    Nighty night folks! Dream of Warrior victories!

  233. iwonderwhytheyhateme August 7, 2012 9:35 pm

    Was this “STEVE” character at today’s practice?

  234. gmahoney August 7, 2012 9:36 pm

    SteveM-check your email.

  235. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 9:41 pm

    i just had to peek befo i hit da sack.


    i hear you. btw, how you been? good i hope.


    howzit howzit. cannot hide my en2ziasm. pake to pake, brudda C nose how

    for rap. 😆

  236. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 9:51 pm

    YAH… I wanna know. was Steve at practice today? you know, the one with the followers, tweeting away. iPad in hand, tape recorder going, camera lights on, crowd ah players and coaches listening to every word, calling Phil Steele, yada yada.

    Who is this Steve, who goes by da nick Independent Tinker, aka Independent Tinker’s Mom?

    yep, I’m cracking up wit levity and entuuziasm. :mrgreen:

  237. BigHiloFan2 August 7, 2012 9:52 pm

    goes wit my cold calculating pake ways. 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 5 stars. :mrgreen:

  238. SteveM August 7, 2012 10:03 pm

    jm2375 — mo808 & hubby left a few minutes before IWWTHM & Keith arrived.

    I am amazed that Dory managed to put together the surprise gathering with only 4 FB Tsai-ko friends and that it was a secret for 2 months. Genji is easy to arrange for Tsai-kos, who are well known there, but again, I apologize to those who did not get the invite…this was a total surprise to me and Dory does not have access to my Tsai-ko Karaoke list.

    She still does not have access. She’s too sneaky. But now she has around 20 FB Tsai-ko friends… 😕

  239. Capitolist/WassupDoc August 7, 2012 10:14 pm

    Is there going to be an USC Away-Gate or are we all going to sit at home snorfeling away on soggy pizza?

  240. d1shima August 7, 2012 10:36 pm

    Not sure, WDoc.

    I working dat day so prolly gonna sneak away for a ill bit of the game….

  241. al August 7, 2012 10:42 pm

    jm0911…if you and the screecher have time go check out concordia it’ll remind her of mpi.

  242. al August 7, 2012 10:44 pm

    C/Wassup Doc

    We’ll be at our regular away game table at Murphy’s

    Go Warriors!

    Go Bows!

  244. Kekoa August 7, 2012 11:19 pm

    Ok DPK! ~ As promised, I’m checking in for one quick post before turning in for the nite.

    😯 Here are my questions for anyone who attended practice today:

    ➡ Did Alex get plenty of practice in today? What’s his hang time?

    ➡ Does QB1’s release seem a bit slow, or ‘telegraphed?’ Hard to tell on the video. Just wunnerin’ what it looks like in ‘real’ time.

    ➡ I realize he doesn’t have to run-for-his-life just yet, but does QB1 seem to have quick feet that he can can set to make accurate throws?

    🙄 Still too early to tell, but it seems like the majority of the reports are sounding like we got us a team that is starting to *GEL!*


  245. Slugger August 8, 2012 12:25 am

    Miss seeing da guys practice…Thanks for the updates & observations.


    If I have time, I’m going to check out the AZ Cardinals practice at NAU. Closest I’ll get to watching any FB practices this fall.


  246. Slugger August 8, 2012 12:26 am

    Night all!

  247. al August 8, 2012 12:44 am

    latest news 1 hour ago. no clue, no clue.

    Greetings! I’ve been following your weblog for a while now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kahului, Maui! Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic job!
