In only-in-Hawaii scenarios, Campus Security showed up twice last week to notify the coaches about a complaint that the morning spring practices were too loud.
The Warriors have muted the speakers and turned them away from the dormitories. There’s even less yelling at practices.
Still, there reportedly is a petition being circulated that seeks to move practices to a 9 a.m. start. The Warriors’ school-day practices begin at 7:15 a.m. They practice at 10:15 on Saturdays.
UH conducted 7 a.m. practices for nine years under June Jones and four years under Greg McMackin. Practices started at 3 p.m. in 2012, Norm Chow’s first season at UH, before reverting to the morning schedule last year at the request of the players’ leadership council.
Morning workouts enable players to practice, then participate in the training table before attending classes.
