    I would like to think this is the first coaching casualty of the season, but the season hasn’t even started yet. Pretty sure this is headed to court.

    “The school said Beckman, who went 12-25 — and 4-20 in Big Ten play — in three seasons at Illinois, will not receive the $3.1 million remaining on the final two years of his five-year contract.”

  43. (Jesse)James August 28, 2015 1:36 pm

    Hope to see all of you at the T-gate on Thursday. Always good food, fun, friends, and football. Early crew gets there around 9 a.m. and parties until game time…or later…mWAHAHAHAHA

  44. (Jesse)James August 28, 2015 1:37 pm

    If you haven’t been to one…stop on by. All are welcome. πŸ™‚

  45. hitman August 28, 2015 1:39 pm

    jeezy33 yes Troy Williams would be a nice get !! do you think UH has a chance to get him ? he would have one or 2 years to play ?

  47. jeezy33 August 28, 2015 1:47 pm

    41. In my opinion yes. He left Washington for playing time. Which is same reason Wittek left USC. Mel Davis played RB was a senior at Narbonne when Troy was a FR I think. Mel committed to Washington while Troy signed with Washington. The OC at Santa Monica works with Max Wittek and coaches Troy right now at Santa Monica. Mel Davis went to Santa Monica. The connections are all there. I’m guessing the ball is in Norm Chows court. Max Wittek is a senior. If he is enjoying it here and has a good season, everything is set up perfectly.

    I have a black “H” cap, an old school Rainbow with menehune cap (my dad’s); I can sure use a new hat to change things up sometimes. I’m always rep’ing UH here in California. Who knows how many prospective recruits saw that Warrior Nation is everywhere.

  52. Warrior Dave August 28, 2015 2:56 pm


    Illinois Administration not paying because Coach was fired for cause. I guess they have enough documentation to prove he was mistreating players and making them not report their injuries, etc.

    happy to see the hurricane track moving further “north” and taking it away from Oahu on Tue, Wed, Thur

    MasaBoy was wondering what contingency plan was in place if Ignacio came real close to Oahu at hurricane strength or even a tropical storm with much rain and winds blowing 40-70 mph on “game day”.

    would they even think that far ahead?

  59. 3-Prong August 28, 2015 7:58 pm

    Exciting match tonight at the SSC … kind of too exciting from Idaho. The new Wahine VB uniforms are different. It will take some time getting used to the asymmetry in the jersey.

    Got Mascot? Is that on AD Matlin’s radar, I wonder.

    RE: #52
    Food for thought, A-House.
    Lesseee… they play football in snow and 15˚ F temperature. Even in blizzards, as I recall. They play football in 100˚ F heat at field level and 100˚ heat and SPF 60 for the Aloha Stadium fans in the afternoon. They play football in the rain and I’ve never seen one halted for rain delay. But good question about wind speeds…is there a rainfall/wind speed rule? πŸ˜›

    Contingency plan for Hawaii game day hurricane is “Stay Home… the tailgate is gonna be junk”. πŸ™„

  67. beans August 29, 2015 8:22 am

    Why does posting to win a hat excite anyone? Seems juvenile asking people to post “as many times as you like”. and yet people do! I ‘m out of here until this is over. Irritating.

  68. Da Punchbowl Kid August 29, 2015 8:50 am

    beans –

    I donate the hats to generate excitement and a sense of community here among the posters. I love to see the many names of lurkers and posters pup up. Don’t you? Bringing the Warriors to the front of mind by any means is a good thing. It’s called promotion. It also gives the Warriors and family members a chance to see how broad and far flung their supporters are. Family members and former Warriors also enter. I am not certain how that equates to being “juvenile” or “irritating”. I give hats to Warrior fans and friends from the mainland too. They love it.

    I would prefer that Tsai not mention me as the donor or conductor of these give-a ways, but he does what he wishes. Because its not about me – its about our Warriors. Our Rainbow Warriors.


  69. Da Punchbowl Kid August 29, 2015 8:57 am

    BTW –
    All winners are selected by purely random drawing. The numbers choose, I don’t. If I had the means, I would love to give hats to every Warrior parent or grand parent and to all of our mainland Warrior Nation who requestS one – mahalo to all of you for entering. Unfortunately, I can’t afford that, so please enter these drawings for your chance to win.


  70. slenzi August 29, 2015 9:16 am

    Public safety first. Next is keeping the TV equipment and news media folks safe. Fans will sacrifice their bodies to rain and wind so long as they are safe. Gotta make sure that overhead TV camera on the cables is not up in high winds, we’ve seen what happens in the NFL with that. Next public safety on the highways, fan safety in the parking area and exits. If safety is there, then should be OK for teams to play. Not sure what the stadium has planned for power outages. My guess is nothing, but you never know. Aloha!

    Of course there are plans in case of large storms. Bob Wagner wrote about getting out of town for Iniki and I believe that a certain blogmaster was mentioned in that chapter of the book.

    I don’t need a cap but it’s good to see some long-time blog names reappearing… and I don’t think they’re really in it just for the cap… just a good reason to check-in again until the season kicks off.

    Speaking of weather/on field conditions – it would seem playing at altitude in the Buff’s house has an impact on visiting teams. I know its been discussed here about our Warriors’ play in that venue. That being said, I wonder what the humidity and precipitation have been like in Boulder the last few weeks? Perhaps the weather will be our friend. Steamed Buffalo anyone? πŸ˜‰
