Price on board

As expected, former UTEP offensive coordinator Aaron Price has joined the UH football program.

UH being UH, there still are administrative procedures that need to be finalized. After that, the coaching assignments will be announced on offense.

* * * * *

This semester, the Warriors implemented the “first-five rule.”

Translation: If you’re a Warrior, you must sit in the first five rows of every class.


Each school day, the coaches do random class checks. (Coach Norm Chow was the class-checker yesterday.) If a player is sitting in the sixth row, he is considered to be absent. So far, every Warrior has adhered to the rule, which is 1) good for the team, and 2) bad for the non-football student sitting behind David Griffin.

Three orange-balloon claps in a birthday celebration for Bobbie Omoto, the heart of the UH basketball program.

Also, happy birthday to Marshawn Lynch’s agent, Cliff LaBoy Jr.

    top5 is ok too.


  5. DaMenehune February 22, 2013 6:45 am

    I use to sit in the back row next to the prettiest girl in school.

    GOOD MORNING HAWAII!

    Top ten by Golly!


  7. tom mui February 22, 2013 6:51 am

    #5 – when I was in school, every desk had ink wells. The pretty girl in front of me had attractive pigtails.

    Was a great brush for sundry drawings/paintings.


  8. PurpleMaple February 22, 2013 6:56 am

    Checking in. First-5 rule seems childish.


  9. koakane February 22, 2013 7:09 am

    morning


  10. koakane February 22, 2013 7:10 am

    yea in front row today


  11. Stephen Tsai February 22, 2013 7:12 am

    I think Bryson, Stiguy808, 702WarriorFan and DaMenehune don’t think it’s a childish rule.


  12. koakane February 22, 2013 7:14 am

    yea like Tom Mui I recomemba those desk with da top that can lift up


  13. Shoko February 22, 2013 7:18 am

    Think the purpose of the rule is to instill discipline.


  14. Bryson February 22, 2013 7:20 am

    Definetly not childish…lol…last thing you want is a player falling behind in school…plus having classroom checks keeps the players on their toes…


  15. Bugaz February 22, 2013 7:22 am

    I guess you think the military has a lot of childish rules too? Control helps to save lives when going to battle for people of all ages.


  16. san jose warrior February 22, 2013 7:25 am

    Pat Summit did this for her basketball teams also.


  17. Buffoman February 22, 2013 7:26 am

    Somewhere when some were children, their parents did not instill the importance of being accountable and responsible as such as young adults they do not understand these matters. Now responsible adults have to monitor all, because a few have not and do not exhibit those simple traits, being responsible and accountable. We see it often these days where cheating, to get ahead, lying at someone else’s expense making excuses and/or blaming others for one’s in action are becoming more common place.

    I sort of like coach’s approach to attempt to instill and/or reinforce the notion that great character builds great leaders not just on the filed but in life.

    Anyone interested in two tickets for Monday evening’s baseball game against Rice?

    Anyone interested in two tickets for next Thursday evening’s men’s basketball game against UC Santa Barbara?

    If you would like either or both pairs of tickets, please send me an e-mail – swood at hoku dot com – indicating which game and be sue to include your real name and contact information including a daytime phone number. I’ll call you to let you know when the tickets will be available at the box office.

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Welcome to Coach Price.

    Happy birthday to Ms. Omoto and Mr. Laboy.

    (Now, can we bring back the Balloon Brigade?)

    Go Wahine!

    Go Warriors!

    Go Bows! Eat Rice!

    Good Morning Gangeez!

    Hey Doc! Longtime no see. 🙂

    Welcome to Coach Price, best wishes to the birthday folks.

    In some cases, teachers tend to give better grades to those who sit closer to the front of the class.


  22. jimmy the lock February 22, 2013 8:04 am

    Good for those football players whose classes only have 5 rows, or sit in a polygonal or circular configuration.

    I think the first-five rule would be childish if includes blankies and naps.


  23. Da Punchbowl Kid February 22, 2013 8:14 am

    I used to sit in first five rows – the seats were small boulders and and the classes were in caves. My favorite subject was cave wall painting.


  24. Old School Dave February 22, 2013 8:17 am

    Won’t mention names, but during a previous coaching regime, back when, my friend’s daughter who was a UH student at the time, told me that in one of her classes on the day of the first exam, all of these football players suddenly appeared 🙂


  25. wasabi February 22, 2013 8:29 am

    22-LOL! I like first five rule. Chow gets this one right…


  26. jeezy33 February 22, 2013 8:29 am

    Honestly a pretty stupid rule. I think thats going a little over board with control. In a huge class, I can see how seats might get filled up.


  27. chawan_cut February 22, 2013 8:29 am

    happy birthday Bobbie! I miss the balloons but I do love what Jamie Smith has done with the students this year!


  28. jimmy the lock February 22, 2013 8:33 am

    Don’t think leg shackles would work on Pistorius.

    My favorite cave subject would be “zug zug”.

    Stoooopid joke Friday…


  29. jeezy33 February 22, 2013 8:33 am

    We go from no names on the back of jersey because its a USC tradition and we play for the front of our jerseys to putting IMUA “Kamehameha tradition” on the back of our jerseys that looked absolutely hideous to having to sit in 1st 5 rows of a classroom? Pretty awesome recruiting tool if you ask me.

    As much as Chow wants to keep the fans interested in the program, you would think names on the back of jerseys fall a lot more in favor of fans being able to recognize players on the field then traditions of other schools. Does Norm really think it makes a difference on guys playing better without names? I think he is going way over board and needs to stick to Xs and Os while maintaining discipline and respect of his team.


  30. pierieNal February 22, 2013 8:40 am

    Spot on with this write-up, I really feel this web page requirements a lot more consideration. I’ll probably be once more to read far more, thanks for that info.

  31. Shoko February 22, 2013 8:42 am

    How about a compromise like name tags like in first day in grade school.

    HI! My name is __________ (insert name)


  32. maui warrior February 22, 2013 8:43 am

    Sitting in the first five rows is a good rule if you ask me, it will force the boys to arrive earlier than normal to get those valued seats. Don’t agree with the names being taken off the jersey not all of us memorize the players names, maybe it will change in the future.


  33. wasabi February 22, 2013 8:44 am

    29- agree-put the names back on! Pride and morale are EVERYTHING in football. Norm needs to vastly improve in this area.

    But….The program depends on success of players in the classroom. Sitting closer means less distraction and absorption of material. Less chance of players be coming in eligible.

    .


  34. jimmy the lock February 22, 2013 8:45 am

    If a student athlete shows improvement, whether physically or mentally, from any rule then I’m all for the rule.


  35. Bowwar February 22, 2013 8:47 am

    Once again, I agree with most of what Jeezy says except for the 1st 5 rows…For one, the players are in college for an “education” first and should be good students along with being good athletes. I’m not a stickler for the 1st 5 rows, but I would expect for the players to be in class and not in the back rows where they could slip out or sleep.

    In my days at UH, I never saw the football players in classes except for exams…Being a short Asian kid, I often had football guys sitting next to me during exams and copying my answers. I’d like to take credit for alot of those guys passing. 🙂


  36. iwonderwhytheyhateme February 22, 2013 9:09 am

    According to this article, sitting in/near the front of the classroom doesn’t neccesarily improve grades but it may help with engaging and paying attention.

    At worst it won’t do a darn thing for grades, at best it may help them in class and with grades.

  37. jimmy the lock February 22, 2013 9:21 am

    Here’s another:

    http://www.altoona.psu.edu/fts/docs/SeatingPositionGrades.pdf

    “Studies show that students who sit in the front and center (middle) of the classroom tend to achieve higher average exam scores (Rennels & Chaudhari, 1988). One study discovered a

    direct relationship between test scores and seating distance from the front of class: students in the front, middle, and back rows of class scored 80%, 71.6%, and 68.1% respectively on course exams (Giles, 1982)”


  38. Kevin February 22, 2013 9:57 am

    UH goes 1-0 then the classroom rule will be a great idea!!!

    UH goes 0-1 then the classroom rule is a waste and stupid.

    Most sports fans are NOT complicated.


  39. sean February 22, 2013 9:57 am

    Welcome to the “NEW” Warriors and Coaches.

    If I sat in the first 5 rows, I cud a be sum budy, but i no budy!


  40. Kevin February 22, 2013 9:59 am

    The haka and ha’a are victims too.

    UH wins with it and all of a sudden people want the words and the fans to learn it!

    UH starts to loose (see 2008 and 2009) then its a waste of time.

    Again. Most sports fans are not complicated.


  41. RB February 22, 2013 10:01 am

    I guess it’s safe to say Ron Fields is not coming to Hawaii.

  42. Former UH Athlete February 22, 2013 10:12 am

    Regarding the names on jerseys, I think Chow will put them back on when the team starts performing well.

    I totally understand the no name jerseys for team building purposes, and the names on jersey should be earned, not given.

    We’ll see… I personally like the names on.


  43. Former UH Athlete February 22, 2013 10:15 am

    #41…

    That sucks. Hate to lose players because of red tape, but it happens. UH isnt the only school to lose JC transfers because of this.

    Safe to say he’s not going to UW, their admissions are far tougher than UH and most MWC schools.


  44. jimmy the lock February 22, 2013 10:18 am

    What makes UW admissions tougher? Can you provide the differences for comparison’s sake.


  45. haka February 22, 2013 10:19 am

    it was so funny watching the games when they had “imua” on the jersey’s. the young boy sitting next to me kept asking his dad, “who caught that?”, “who was that?”…etc and I kept saying “imua”. we were laughing so much that the few rows around us all started saying “nice play imua!”. team unity becomes a joke of fan frustration. it would not be so bad if we could understand what was said on the stadium speakers. bring back the names!


  46. Former UH Athlete February 22, 2013 10:20 am

    #36&37

    If you dig far enough, you’ll find a study to support any point of view.

    I like the first five rule. Makes players more accountable for their actions. The more responsible a player is away from the field will be a more responsible player on the field.

    Then again, the first 5 only applies to the large lecture hall classes. Once you’re done with the pre-requisites, then the class sizes are much smaller and often the room doesn’t have 5 rows.


  47. Silva February 22, 2013 10:21 am

    Sucks fields couldn’t put on the warrior jersey. Felt like he was gonna be an instant impact on defense. U dont see many Corners his size ala Richard Sherman

  49. st. anthony trojan February 22, 2013 10:37 am

    First 5 rule is cool…but should add a amendment to it though..

    if a player has been doing good work and above a certain threshold

    they should be exempt….as long as it is maintained… but only after

    one year of school…players that show responsibility in the class should

    sit ne where they want…. if you want them to act responsible and be men

    then treat them as such..

    Remember.. Bart Starr…. and coach Lombardi.. according to Mr. Starr… coach

    chewed him out once in practice… said he went to him later and said..” Coach.. if

    you want me to be your leader on the field.. then treat me like one.” nothing more

    needs to be said… the rest is history..

    When asked…President Eisenhower… how does he lead… he said..” cut a piece of string

    and place it on the table.. and try to push it…. nothing happens… well now if you pull it

    it will follow you…” I am 100 % certain Mr. Chow leads by example… can see it being

    nothing but positive for the young men under his watch…Seems to me… from where I sit

    here in Manila… that many of the young men he coached…or are acquainted with…seems

    to follow.. many from Utah… Florida…etc..we see in a few years.. how the young men will

    be in a few years and what they will have to say… .

    IMUA


  50. jeezy33 February 22, 2013 10:46 am

    Honestly, as a former student athlete, I don’t think there is much correlation between sitting in the front of the class and getting good grades. I think making sure students attend class is important. But students still need to put in time studying and doing research to complete reports and be prepared for finals. I just think 1st 5 rows is going extreme. If the students are attending all classes, I would call that a huge success for the coaching staff.


  51. Rite80 February 22, 2013 10:56 am

    Concerning the rule. Is there a study that looks at the affect of treating adults like children? This certainly can’t be a military rule unless the Academies only have 5 rows of seats in their classrooms. Let’s call it for what it is. It’s Norm Chow’s rule like it or not.


  52. asian sexy women February 22, 2013 10:57 am

    It’s the best time to make a few plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this publish and if I may I desire to recommend you few attention-grabbing issues or advice. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things approximately it!


  53. Gregory Despain February 22, 2013 10:58 am

    Good post! I actually value great read through. Keep it up! Every time you get a likelihood get a appear at this amazing video clip. http://youtu.be/6e-twZ8G9Vw


  54. haka February 22, 2013 11:11 am

    personally, i always did better in the front row. i paid attention more, was never distracted, took better notes and never fell asleep. that being said, i didn’t always sit in the front row. when i was sitting in the back row i used to dream of being an astronaut….i took up space.


  55. beautiful asian girls February 22, 2013 11:14 am

    I’ve been exploring for a little for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i am glad to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I so much indubitably will make certain to do not omit this site and provides it a glance on a continuing basis.


  56. gobows February 22, 2013 11:15 am

    how many classes does coach have to visit in a day…40, 50…

    ST ~ what is the team’s penalty for being absent from a class?


  57. haka February 22, 2013 11:15 am

    ha! lunch time. thought i’d sandwich the beautiful asian girls!


  58. Chee Hoo February 22, 2013 11:16 am

    Up at St. Louis School, you want the window seats/desks. No problem staying awake for the entire class period. Watching the Chaminade female coeds walk by keeps you on the edge of your seat. “Coach, I want the window seat not the first 5 rows”!


  59. haka February 22, 2013 11:16 am

    dang, gobow sandwich. 😉


  60. wasabi February 22, 2013 11:31 am

    56- last year they had to roll- literally- for any infractions. Didn’t think this was productive or healthy. Seems like they could come up with something that would strengthen them while punishing them.


  61. kifi February 22, 2013 11:51 am

    First five rule is a great rule. When coaches sit in prospective recruits’ homes, they look the parents in the eyes and promise them a good education. Sitting in the first five rows will not hurt an athlete. If they are bothered by the rule so much, they can always transfer.

    Several of the coaches have advanced degrees. I’m pretty sure that the coaches know what they are doing.


  62. Haleakala February 22, 2013 11:52 am

    I see nothing wrong with the first five rule. How hard is it to sit in the first five rows?

    Rules such as this may not help 95% of the players.

    However that remaining five percent may be helped immensely by being forced to comply with strict rules. Coach Chow probably has other rules to force them to study and not fool around.

    That might make or break a season by having the those few student-athletes who may not have the discipline otherwise to study (and there are those), do their best in the classroom as well as on the field.


  63. Lieselotte Naranjo February 22, 2013 12:04 pm

    Awesome post! Thank you! Very well organized.


  64. gobows February 22, 2013 12:05 pm

    #60

    how about the front leaning rest position = pushups.

    which coach had the players holding their books for 30 minutes?


  65. manoa#1 February 22, 2013 12:29 pm

    first five rule… Chow is a Controll Freak.!!!


  66. jeezy33 February 22, 2013 12:33 pm

    The reason I don’t like the rule because its a black and white rule. No gray area. If you’re a good student but somehow was running a little late and didnt make it to class 5 minutes early to get a good set, how can you say a athlete is absent because maybe he had to sit in the 7th row?

    It’s definitely way too controlling.


  67. wasabi February 22, 2013 12:38 pm

    64- exactly…that and “run a mile”….much less likely to cause neck strain and spine injury!

    If I’m not mistaken, the book on the head was Chow…


  68. wasabi February 22, 2013 12:40 pm

    65- agreed…but in this case there is no negative result to be had from sitting closer in class!


  69. WarriorMojo February 22, 2013 12:41 pm

    Re #66 “Be on time” was Rule #1.

    Agree with you 100% on the names on jerseys, though.


  70. WarriorMojo February 22, 2013 12:43 pm

    ST, any tentative date for the Kauai scrimmage?

    Some of us need to make plans in advance if we are to attend.


  71. WarriorMojo February 22, 2013 12:47 pm

    Making plans to be in LA for the Big West tournaments.

    Wahine have a HUGE game tomorrow at Cal Poly. The top two teams in the women’s bracket get byes into the semifinal. The third and fourth place teams get a first round bye. Right now, Wahine are tied for #1 with Pacific and Cal Poly is #3. HUGE game.


  72. Old School Dave February 22, 2013 12:55 pm

    Sorry Wasabi. That should be, “end of discussion.” 🙂


  80. oldtimer808 February 22, 2013 1:42 pm

    #26 That’s why you don’t coach or have a clue to the total picture. I applaud Coach Chow for caring about his players and their future. These players will benefit the most down the road and will realize the importance of what the coach has instilled in them.


  81. oldtimer808 February 22, 2013 1:47 pm

    #65 Caring about your players as Student/Athletes does not make for a control freak. I believe you miss the point and throwing out cliches without knowing first hand what is going on with the team or the coach personally is irresponsible chatter.


  82. Derek February 22, 2013 1:51 pm

    I liked sitting in the front. Focused better, paid attention. Sit in the back and the mind starts to wander, even doodooling, can’t hear the teacher too well, play with the I Phone, etc. If statistics and research says that students do better sitting in the front in general that’s a good thing. I think the coaches heart is in the right place, they want the football players to do well in the classroom and get a degree. But, some flexibility can be accepted. Example, a football player has a 3.5 cumulative GPA. Sit anywhere you want as far as I am concerned.


  83. J-FORCE February 22, 2013 1:59 pm

    It’s a random check. Help keep you in your toes at all times. Just like football. Gotta stay focus……Go Warriors!


  84. PolyMom February 22, 2013 2:03 pm

    I love it that the team has to sit in the first five rows. My hub’s rules is the first 2 rows. And all of our kids are doing great in life,

    All of this discipline creates structure. In football you need structure. Let me say this, after the big boy got his 4.0 GPA last semester and made the Deans List as well…he was very happy and proud! Now he wants to do it again and again. Knowledge is power. It’s Norm Chows job to make sure these boys graduate. You got 2 or 3 going pro each year. So having a good education is important.

    OMG just let Chow do his job! I love what he is doing.


  85. wasabi February 22, 2013 2:11 pm

    79- for some odd reason that sounds much better! Lol


  86. d1shima February 22, 2013 2:26 pm

    Love the first five rule…dovetails with “if you on time, you’re late.”

    Time management is a vital key to success in many endeavors and especially for the student-athlete.

    Treat ’em like adults? The Former Coach’s mantra. Mixed results IIRC.


  87. Old School Dave February 22, 2013 2:42 pm

    When you go 3-9, everything is under the microscope.


  88. mikey February 22, 2013 2:51 pm

    1st row usually where the smartest students in class sat.

    I usually sat in front section (not front row) but one day I was late to class and had to sit in the last row. I kept asking the students next to me if he could see what the Prof was writing on the board, That’s when I realized I needed glasses.


  89. mikey February 22, 2013 2:54 pm

    I wish my son played for Chow!


  91. gobows February 22, 2013 2:56 pm

    when Randy Moss reported to the 49ers he asked coach Harbaugh what he could do, Harbaugh replied “sit in the front of the room during meetings.” Randy Moss was an exceptional team mate according to the 49ers. the 49ers will have 14 picks in the draft, Mario probably won’t be ready when the season starts, but i think Moss’ career is most likely over unless another team gives him a shot. AJ Jenkins went to Atlanta to train with Colin. AJ may have a break out year next season.

    I wish I was forced to sit in the front of the class. I wouldn’t have slept as much by being in the back. I’m sure my grades would have been better.

    Hope the Niners pick up some depth on the defensive line. They looked a little ragged at the end of the season. They also need help in the secondary as was evident against the Falcons and the Ravens. Maybe they can get lucky in picking up a rare jewel at that position.


  97. Moocher February 22, 2013 3:32 pm

    honestly, where do you want your kid to sit in class, the back row? I sat in the back row and got good at pencil fighting and playing paper football. in other words, more opportunity to “tune out”.

    chow is shaping men. and regardless whether grades improve or not, the point is he is putting the young men in an environment where he will be more focused then if he were in the back row somewhere else.

    that same “learning to be focused” mindset carries to the field. chow is simply minimizing distractions and maximizing the ability to learn to focus and zero in whether in the class or on the field. He’s teaching his troops that showing up is not good enough, concentration is good, but focus is better.

    Simple test…concentrate on something, then focus in on it. You see a difference? you went to another more defined level. If you want to focus in on what your professor is saying, you gotta be in the front.

    Concentrate on what coach says, focus in on what coach is saying….see the difference?

    concentration=flashlight beam on a wall 5 feet away

    focus=laser pointer beam on a wall 5 feet away

    chow is getting players in the habit of not just concentrating, but learning how to focus. not to mention he is also teaching them to be early and that means being prepared.


  98. Shoko February 22, 2013 3:36 pm

    Pretty sure the BW Tournament format for the Women’s BB is the same for the Men’s BB. Single elimination (no byes). Eight teams play quarterfinals then the winners proceed to the semifinals and then on to the championship round.

Alot more many people should read this and comprehend this side of the story. I cant believe youre not even more well-liked mainly because you surely have the gift.

    After more thought, I’m not all that sure the format is the same for both MBB and WBB. Would be strange if it was a different format, tho. BW MBB had byes a few years ago, but changed when they tournament venue changed to the Honda Center.


  102. Shoko February 22, 2013 3:44 pm

    Anyway, going to talk to the other half this weekend and see if can make plans to attend the BW Tournament in March since I haven’t been to one Hawaii MBB game live this season. Dats what happens when UH’s other sports change conferences.

    Re: First 5 Rule, Hey nobody said this was a democracy. What coach says goes. In high school our coach told everyone to cut their hair (hey, kinda like Coach Chow). When a friend and I didn’t do it, in the middle of practice, coach called the both of us up, busted out the big black scissors and proceeded to chop off our hair right up to the helmet line. Lesson learned. Safe to say, no one grew their hair too long again that year.

    Often thought to be a myth, cases of humans with horns has now beendocumented. These cutaneous horns, also called cornu cutaneum are actually skin lesions, which cone-shaped protuberances grow from, creating the appearance of a horn. At least a little research into the daily life and medical history, if any, has to be done as a preliminary step for a good weight loss program. Only then can it strive to provide each person the kind of treatment that is needed. Once the research is done and the causes analyzed, the weight loss program should proceed step by step through a comprehensive approach to not just provide immediate weight loss but to provide long lasting results.

    Secondly, you need to change the way you spend your energy. The idea of replacing taking a lift with walking up the stairs is unbearable if you have to go to the 30th floor, however, if its just one floor, then chances are its no more than 25 steps, which is not so bad.

    Is J one of your favorite examiners? Once digested, they produce the hormone GLP-1, which sends signals to the brain to persuade you into thinking you are full up. green coffee bean extract Because the efficacy and safety of the popular dietary supplement chromium are uncertain and the supplements guar gum and chitosan appear to be ineffective, the American Academy of Family Physicians discourages using them for weight loss. Conflicting or insufficient evidence regarding the supplements ginsing, green tea, pyruvate, St. John’s wort, glucomannan, conjugated linoleic acid, hydroxycitric acid, L-cartinine and psyllium leads the American Academy of Family Physicians to encourage physicians to caution and closely monitor patients who wish to take these supplements.

    This board is sometimes tedious because many people are too extreme. Why does everything have to be black or white? Very few things in life are 100% bad or 100% good, at least in my reality.

    I give Coach Chow high marks for certain things like attempting to instill discipline and structure, tireless recruiting, and very astute staff selections.

    On the other hand I’m not as impressed by decisions such as removing players’ names for jerseys, not traveling with a full squad, and, most critically, certain game management approaches last year. I just don’t want to see drive after drive featuring two fullback dives, an attempted pass to the TE, and then a punt, when we are down thirty in the fourth quarter.

    no can hit, no can bunt. but get real good pitching.

    kinda like the football team: can not run, can not pass, but get 1 good punter.
