  19. graham July 3, 2012 4:56 am

  23. Derek July 3, 2012 5:38 am

    ST, the updates are very clear. Thanks much. We’re getting close to that time.

  24. haka July 3, 2012 5:41 am

    Mahalo ST for the roll call! Hope everyone in limbo makes the grade!

  25. Shoko July 3, 2012 5:42 am

    Seven days and counting! Should keep me busy till the season starts.

    What players are going to the MWC Media day? And will they be staying at the same place. Think last year was Red Rock Casino, no?

    Moooorning 😉

  26. Shoko July 3, 2012 5:48 am

    Nevermind, they’re staying at the Cosmo.

    Much Mahalo Stephen..

    Any word when Penitito Faalologo is coming from Samoa?

  31. d1shima July 3, 2012 5:57 am

    …gotta go now!


  32. Wes'side Warrior July 3, 2012 6:01 am

    Here’s something I just posted on the Tsai-kos, Georgia Chaptah page:

    Howzit, everyone! Wish the rest of you could’ve made it out to the game this past Sunday! Bryant Moniz lit it up! What a fun game that was!

    Anywayz, just got off the phone with Mr. Andy Haskell, Senior Director of Team Operations of the Georgia Force. He’s trying to get together a bunch of seats just for a “Hawaii Section”!!! I need a good, solid count of who will show up for the final regular season home game on the 14th of July. The sooner we can give him a total, the better. He will work out a discounted price, and we’d have to pay early, and pick it up from him in WillCall at the Box Office on game day.

    For your information… former UH Warrior, Mike Washington, is the Power’s #1 Wide Receiver! So, we’ll have two boyz to cheer for. Of course, the home team gets more love, though.

    So please… as soon as you can figure out who is coming with you, please give me a head count. At the moment, he has 74 seats that we can claim as a section, and he can move people around if we need more space!

    He’s also working on creating a “Hawaii Section” for us for next season, so we can all sit together. We need to think about a section to claim if we go with season tickets. Just food for thought…

    Aloha! ~Bruddah D

    Spread da word! We need a huge, Warrior Green crowd!!!

  33. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 6:02 am

    They’re holding a scholarship for Faalologo. He’s awaiting clearance, too.

    If there’s too much of a delay on Allen, he’ll grayshirt.

  34. LizKauai (iPad) July 3, 2012 6:06 am

    Mahalo, ST. Study hard, Warriors!

    Go Force! What fun!

    So- dvr is set to capture the Firefly marathon tomorrow onSciFi…. Speaking of tv…

    Have a safe and happy day, everyone!

  35. A-joe July 3, 2012 6:11 am


  36. tommui July 3, 2012 6:16 am


    A-JOE et al – you memorized the roll-call? Gads!

    ST – Thanks for the list.

  37. TChahng July 3, 2012 6:18 am

    Haha! You bguys crack me up!


  38. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 6:27 am

    Coach Chow has a very nice stable of players. Hope they help us win. No injuries!

  39. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 6:28 am

    We live in very exciting times. Can’t wait for the first game!

  40. bigislandkurt July 3, 2012 6:29 am

    Yes! Some football scoops!

    @ #20 Re: AA degrees

    Sounds like those players are in the summer session at their respective junior colleges. Typically, the summer terms end at or around the ending of July. The registrar then will need to confirm the degree. Don’t think these boys will be out here before camp starts.


  41. Dennis Halloran July 3, 2012 6:31 am

    I remember Sean Schroeder at Dana Hills HS. I thought he was every bit as good as Matt Barkley in 7 on 7 competition

  42. bigislandkurt July 3, 2012 6:33 am



  43. bigislandkurt July 3, 2012 6:35 am

    ….and that kid Schroeder is a lefty too! I got a QB crush on lefty QB’s. Being a Duke grad in three years is no joke either. Smart is a good thing when playing QB. 🙂


  44. RedZone July 3, 2012 6:39 am

  45. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 6:41 am

    RedZone is writing in crytic code again.

  46. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 6:41 am

    crytic = cryptic

  47. RedZone July 3, 2012 6:48 am

    nice list

    thanks for update

  48. Abunai July 3, 2012 6:58 am

    I thought I read somewhere Mike Andrade might have to wait till next year? This is the kid from the big island if I’m not mistaken. But good news that he’s here.

  49. Abunai July 3, 2012 6:59 am

    Come on Mr Allen you must be cleared to play!! Even the JC transfers! Come on…. I hope they make it.

  50. WarriorNY July 3, 2012 7:07 am


    Thanks for the 411 on AA.


    If you’re a fan of Sci-fi, you’ll love Firefly.

  51. duffer July 3, 2012 7:14 am

    Good morning Tsaiko!

    Anyone know of good eats in Midway Utah?

  52. HEINEKEN July 3, 2012 7:29 am

    Lets go JT and DeMar. Get your degrees so you can be apart of something special

  53. jm2375 July 3, 2012 7:33 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Thanks for the list, ST!

    Is it September yet?


  54. Bulla July 3, 2012 7:53 am

    mahalo for the information ST, exciting times to say the least.

    HAPPY 4TH everyone, be safe and be blessed!

  55. mauiwarrior July 3, 2012 8:00 am

    Quenton Brown? Is he a DE or DT?

  56. Da Punchbowl Kid July 3, 2012 8:15 am

    Good Morning Gangeez!

    Hope all the transfers can git it done and be Warrior ready come fall camp.

  57. Da Punchbowl Kid July 3, 2012 8:17 am

    Hey mauiwarrior!

  58. Da Punchbowl Kid July 3, 2012 8:22 am

    Hey Stephen – You should call Mike Rowe from “Dirty Jobs”, see if he has the stomach to be a WB spam cleaner for a day…

  63. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 9:01 am

    Whoa. Andy Griffith died?

  64. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 9:03 am

    UH is holding scholarships for Turner, Dorsey and Kapua Sai.

    If Schroeder is accepted, he’ll be joining as a walk-on.

  65. jojo ® July 3, 2012 9:03 am

    Stephen Tsai, it was on Twitter this morning

  69. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 9:18 am


    I had to cut back on the Twitter feeds that go to my phone. Kim Kardashian, Paul Abdul and Davone Bess didn’t make the cut.

    I used to get info from xrsdance but I think she deleted me.

  70. Kekoa July 3, 2012 9:21 am

    My hero from back in the day has passed. “Oh Andy!” Aunt Bea would say, as he would turn his corn pone affirmations loose on Barney and the townspeople. (tsigh…)

  71. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 9:25 am

    Goober and Andy dying in the same year.

    Howard, Barney, Aunt Bee already dead.

    Is Otis still alive?

  72. al July 3, 2012 9:40 am

    planted in my brain…ever since i was made aware of sean schroeder a week and a half ago (mystery qb) this vision keeps popping into my head.


  73. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 10:00 am

    Did I mention there’s another mystery player out there?

    Yep, I can keep secrets.

  74. al July 3, 2012 10:08 am

    i hope he’s 6’5″ 299 lba.

  75. jojo ® July 3, 2012 10:09 am

    Stephen Tsai, I don’t see how xrsdance could delete you. She follows you!

  76. al July 3, 2012 10:16 am

    i was rather surprised that dejon allen was not yet a qualifier.

    i hope its just clerical.

  77. cheepono July 3, 2012 10:16 am

    is darren myles jr completely out of the picture?

  78. al July 3, 2012 10:17 am

    jojo…you got your answer now.

  79. al July 3, 2012 10:18 am

    cheepono…last word is he’s too far away to go anywhere these days.

  80. A-House July 3, 2012 10:19 am


    #72 – musical score reminds me of the song Midnight Blue – sad lyrics, but one of my absolute fav song!

  81. A-House July 3, 2012 10:20 am


    Stretch????? but he seldom visits the Tsaiko tailgate so how are we supposed to witness his “hibachi” skills??

    trix question!

  82. cheepono July 3, 2012 10:25 am

    thanks al. and a happy belated birthday.

  86. SteveM July 3, 2012 10:36 am

    Rats… just tossed my cookies and cleared my cache. Just to be safe even though I’m on a Mac. Looks like a PC email worm is making the rounds–apparently from a hijacked email account of a mainland Tsai-ko.

    This one has no subject line and a URL. Must be an oldie. Obviously, do not click on the link. If this is a variation of the oldies, you are redirected to another site, which is usually innocuous or a decoy. The redirecting site may be doing the mischief, like setting nasty cookies, etc. or other things in the OS.

  87. Warrior Dave July 3, 2012 10:40 am

    Great update list ST! Mahalo.

  88. More Info July 3, 2012 11:06 am

    Simply wish to say your article is as astounding. The clarity for your put up is simply great and that i could suppose you’re an expert in this subject. Well with your permission let me to take hold of your RSS feed to keep up to date with imminent post. Thanks one million and please keep up the enjoyable work.

  89. SteveM July 3, 2012 11:08 am

    RE: #81

    A-House — nevertheless, he is a Tsai-ko and the master of his own tailgate/grill which they had many years before the blog started.

    …and I know he don’t share grilling duties 👿 🙂 — which is part of the scenerio (3) I omitted from yesterdays explanation (Comment #161 – click here).

  90. MattyBoy July 3, 2012 11:08 am

    Happy belated Birthday Al!!!

  91. kapakahi July 3, 2012 11:10 am

    LB Penitito Fa’alologo?


  92. kapakahi July 3, 2012 11:14 am


    It’s a good thing for your sake that you can….while others have clearly demonstrated otherwise.

  93. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:32 am

    Well, it’s a good thing Kekoa is picking hubby and me up, because we have no clue where Hale Ikena is.

  94. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:33 am

    Hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow. We want to bbq some New York steaks. That gas grill hasn’t been used in years, so looks like we will have to shake the propane tank to make it work.

  95. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:38 am

    Daughter is in Nevada for graduate school. She told me she paid only $20 for her car registration over there. Here in Hawaii, it would have cost over $200. Nevada goes by the age of the car not the weight.

  96. kapakahi July 3, 2012 11:39 am


    Bone-in ribeye steaks on sale at Times for about half-price until today.

  97. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:42 am

    How come so cheap? Maybe old? Lol. I am so suspicious.

  98. A-joe July 3, 2012 11:43 am


  99. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:45 am

    A-joe: OK so now you are going to have explain what that is all about.

  100. A-joe July 3, 2012 11:51 am

    gigi- gambling brings in so much revenue that Nevada doesn’t sweat over the little taxes like car registration. The $20 simply pays for the cleric’s time to record the info in the database and the occasional supply of office doughnuts. =)


  101. kapakahi July 3, 2012 11:53 am


    Fresh Sterling Silver cut.

    On sale strictly for 4th of July cookouts.

    Usually goes on sale for half-price once or twice a year.

  102. A-joe July 3, 2012 11:56 am

    gigi- look at Kekoa’s link. #68 to explain today’s Roll Call tribute…


  103. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:57 am

    A-Joe: My daughter’s friend treated her to dinner. Daughter ordered rack of lamb — $50 — included a salad made to order at table side.

  104. A-joe July 3, 2012 11:58 am

    91. Kapakahi-

    great recollection!


  105. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 11:58 am

    kapakahi: Thanks for the tip. Hubby might buy it on his way home.

  106. jojo ® July 3, 2012 12:00 pm

    Roll Call!!!

  107. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 12:01 pm

    A-joe: I just saw the roll call. funny stuff!

  108. mind July 3, 2012 12:10 pm

    I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or blog posts in this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this website. Reading this information So i’m satisfied to show that I have a very just right uncanny feeling I came upon just what I needed. I such a lot surely will make sure to don?t overlook this website and give it a glance on a constant basis.

  109. kapakahi July 3, 2012 12:10 pm

    Bought my bone-in ribeye steaks from Liliha Square Times this morning.

    Just double-checked the Time add again. Add says “Sterling Silver USDA Choice Rib Roast or Steak Bone-In” for $6.99 per lb. through tomorrow (not today).

    Can’t beat that!

  110. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 12:13 pm

    yeah, that’s a great buy. How thick is it?

  111. d1shima July 3, 2012 12:23 pm

    For you Dodger fans,

    Hugh Hewitt will be eschewing the politalk for an hour today to interview Vin Scully for the entire second hour of his show today on 690 at 4pm (or live at 1pm online at hughhewitt.com)

  112. Derek July 3, 2012 12:36 pm

    My favorite Rap skit is Aunty Marialani’s cooking show! Cracks me up.

  113. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:09 pm

    The comedy biz is really difficult. Frank DeLima performed at hubby’s company meeting and confessed that he was deeply depressed for 10 years after his gig in Waikiki folded.

    Then towards the end of that period, he woke up and began to do private gigs and sell his DVDs.

    I guess he’s doing better now with his CAB commercials.

  114. al July 3, 2012 1:10 pm

    how did i know that gigi had no clue about ajoe’s shoutouts?

  115. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:10 pm

    He’s also lost a ton of weight because of his diabetes.

  116. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:11 pm

    No clue period. Lol.

  117. al July 3, 2012 1:12 pm

    #91…not sure if he re-applied to uh.

  118. al July 3, 2012 1:14 pm

    ran into frank three weeks ago…he appeared to be regaining some weight.

    drastic weight loss for diabetics is not a good sign unless one was trying to lose it.

  119. Great blog here! Additionally your web site loads up fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate hyperlink in your host? I wish my web site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  120. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:16 pm

    I think he was on a weight loss diet some time ago and was proud he lost weight.

  121. Last Call July 3, 2012 1:20 pm

    I lost some weight today. I went to Costco and my wallet is $200 lighter

  122. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:21 pm

    it’s amazing how much less we are spending on food, water, and HECO because daughter moved to the mainland.

  123. mo808 July 3, 2012 1:24 pm

    I’m amazed that I’ve lost my four tax deductions but my food bill is still high 🙁

  124. al July 3, 2012 1:26 pm

    last call…i wish my costco bill was only $200.

  125. al July 3, 2012 1:27 pm

    mo808…its time to collect rent.

  126. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:31 pm

    so if I did not make any sales during the 1st 6 months, do I still have to file a GE tax form? Hubby told me no.

  127. Shoko July 3, 2012 1:32 pm

    If Frank had Type II Diabetes, most doctors would put him on a restricted diet along with a not-so rigorous exercise regimen. They normally drop alot of weight intially then begin to stablize after awhile. They have to monitor their blood-sugar constantly. My Dad was Type II and he lost alot of weight, which was good cause he was a bit overweight. I dunno, but there seems to be more Type II nowadays that mostly coincide with people that are considered overweight. Thats what I’ve noticed.

    Sam Choy lost quite a bit of weight as well. However, I don’t know if he was diagnosed with Diabetes. At least its not Type I where you have to take insulin shots. Friend had to have his leg amputated due to poor circulation.

    Now, on to the more important topic. RIBEYE STEAK! My wife and I usually go to this butcher and have steaks cut at the time of purchase. Usually inch and a half for grilling. But, never got it for less than 12.99 up here.

  128. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:33 pm

    Everybody should own a business because it’s a great way to deduct biz expenses from your taxes.

    This is important because we dont have mortgage interest to deduct anymore.

  129. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:36 pm

    Shoko: inch and a half is really thick. Once we bought chateaubrian from Costco. Da bugga was so thick, it was raw in the middle after we bbq’d it for a long time.

    Wate we should’ve done is close the grill cover.

  130. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:38 pm

    Shoko: not all fat people are diabetic, and not all diabetics are fat.

    Take me for instance. I am fat, but doctor told me even if I lose weight my glucose score will still be the same. 93-101 range

  131. Shoko July 3, 2012 1:40 pm


    Did you let it sit outside till it got to room temperature? Once you sear it on both sides, you have to watch it constantly or the buggah will burn. Took me several times to get it right and alot of kala!

  132. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:41 pm

    OK, hubby agreed to buy the ribeye at Times tomorrow morning. Hope it’s as good as you say it is.

  133. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 1:43 pm

    Shoko: next time I will do that. Do you use a marinade on yours?

  134. Shoko July 3, 2012 1:45 pm

    Well, thats true. But it seems to me, and I’m no doctor, but friends and family that are Type II were usually overweight. But I agree, not all diabetics are overweight. Such is the case with Type I. Whereas Type II, its usually related to weight issues.

  135. Shoko July 3, 2012 1:46 pm

    Yes, I do marinade at times. Just last weekend I used a balsamic marinade. Was ono!

  136. iwonderwhytheyhateme July 3, 2012 1:46 pm

    I remember reading a while back on some forums that Chow passed on some QB’s that may have had some interest in transferring to UH. This was before the heini-gate controversy. Are we looking for another QB for 2012 or are we pretty much set on what we have so far?

  137. Shoko July 3, 2012 1:47 pm

    Be right back. I’m cooking dinner now. And no, its not steak. 🙁

  138. al July 3, 2012 1:48 pm

    best ny steaks on oahu are at the kapahulu safeway.

    us choice butcher cut 1 1/2 to 2 inches. they actually take the time to further age their butcher cuts an additional period at the store.

    grilled steaks need to “rest” at least 7 minutes or more before slicing and dicing.

  139. al July 3, 2012 1:50 pm

    a compound butter will enhance your steaks everyday.

  140. mo808 July 3, 2012 1:52 pm

    Al, I think we need to raise it, trouble is trying to collect it. 🙁

  141. Shoko July 3, 2012 1:55 pm

    Speaking of compound butter for steaks, I was watching this food show called, “Kimchee Chronicles” where they made a kimchee compund butter for some steaks. I thought that was unusual, but piqued my interest enough to actually try it.

  142. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 2:00 pm

    boy, using compound butter would lead to burning. The fat would drip into the fire and cause it to leap up. What level do you place the rack in the grill?

  143. Shoko July 3, 2012 2:05 pm

    Usually put the butter after it pau cook. The residual heat melts it coating the steak. Ono!

  144. Shoko July 3, 2012 2:06 pm

    Normally the first level to sear. If you’re going to walk away from the grill, I would suggest you rise it up a bit as not to burn.

  145. WarriorNY July 3, 2012 2:06 pm

    Oh man.. You guys are getting me hungry… I’m making some lamb chops, mash potatoes and asparagus…

    I think Tsaiko’s should create a cook book.

  146. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 2:12 pm

    WarriorNY: lamb chops? Ono. I had lamb curry at Monsoon India restaurant in Waikiki.

  147. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 2:15 pm

    Wish I could invite some friends over for the bbq tomorrow, but I am fighting a cold.

  148. WarriorNY July 3, 2012 2:26 pm


    Lamb is so tasty… Next time you get Indian, be sure to try Lamb Saag (lamb and spinach curry)…so tasty!

    Feel better and Enjoy your BBQ!

  149. HEINEKEN July 3, 2012 2:27 pm

    #73 ST Im guessing it’s Paulay Asiata

  150. iwonderwhytheyhateme July 3, 2012 2:44 pm

    Paulay would be a good grab.

  151. Chee Hoo July 3, 2012 2:46 pm

    Times Sterling Silver bone-in rib eye roast is da winna! At $6.99/lb you can’t go wrong. Ala Meat Market on Waiakamilo St. sells rib eye roast at $12.99/lb. Although it’s the top grade. Times Sterling Silver is just as good. Cook the bugga at 500 degrees (weight of meat x 5.0 = minutes to cook) then turn off oven and let sit for 2 hrs. Perfect pink color in the middle. Guarans!

  152. oldie July 3, 2012 2:51 pm

    Gigi #126 – you should file. We have a property that wasn’t rented for several years. Tax Office sent a delinquency notice several years later.

    Thanks to whoever first posted about the Times ribeye special.

  153. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2012 2:55 pm

    Oldie: OK, I will file mine.

  154. Opulicious July 3, 2012 2:57 pm

    Amen! Good Times with Sterling Silver.

    #151 – I’ve tried that method and it indeed does wonders! Just like you’re eating prime rib from the Chuck Wagon on Kapiolani Blvd.

  155. Manoa Mist July 3, 2012 2:59 pm

    Nice list of players coming in. There’s a lot of talent in that group. Can’t wait to see what Chow and crew come up within the next few years.

  156. Wes'side Warrior July 3, 2012 3:02 pm



  157. kapakahi July 3, 2012 3:06 pm


    Can’t go wrong with Times Sterling Silver beef, but gotta agree that Aala Meat Market is still the best….ever since they were located at corner of South Beretania & Aala Street (across Aala Park)…..at the old Kobayashi Hotel.

  158. Bigislandkurt July 3, 2012 3:09 pm



  159. jm2375 July 3, 2012 3:12 pm

    al-san – your Costco bill would be lower than $200 if you stopped buying electronics (like TVs) every time you go.

    a-joe, Kekoa – going to our neighborhood block party tonight. BP seems to be on the menu…


  160. kapakahi July 3, 2012 3:23 pm

    BTW, Frank Delima had the crowd rolling….especially the new UH football assistant coaches from the mainland (particularly Kaumeyer & Demo)…..with his “roll call” joke….but mostly his closing peanut joke….along with his whole assortment of ethnic jokes at last Tuesday’s UH Football Camps fundraiser banquet held at the HICC.

  161. al July 3, 2012 3:25 pm

    i used that high fire method before. my preference is to bring the roast to room temp before cooking. then, 325 for 20 minutes then 250 over the next 1 1/2 hours if boneless. let em rest and then enjoy.

  162. al July 3, 2012 3:27 pm

    another great piece to roast is a whole top sirloin. trim the underside sinew first. slow roast. use an meat thermometer for this one. carve against the grain.

    broke mout.

    also, half the cost.

  163. Kekoa July 3, 2012 3:27 pm

    jmxxxx ~ Got to go now! (BP on the menu).

  164. PowderPuff July 3, 2012 3:27 pm

    Nice roster, ST. Thanks for listing. And I just saw your tweet. Woooo hooo! 🙂 GREAT news!

  165. Wes'side Warrior July 3, 2012 3:29 pm

    I thought “Minahira” was next. Now, da buggah waiting for his name to be called. No worries, bruddah, I call your name…


    And… who dat sitting next to you…?


  166. al July 3, 2012 3:33 pm

    i heard a name.

    but, was asked to sit on this one.

    besides i wouldn’t want kapakahi to scold me.

    let the defense rest.

  167. al July 3, 2012 3:39 pm

    how long can you age beef?

    does beef ever spoil?

    long ago, okay, long, long ago i had this summer job at a local meat processor for most of the popular restaurants in town. his bonus to his employees would typically be a case of beef, normally some type steak, that he’d have the butchers cut up for everyone to take home.

    okay, his generosity was limited to meat that was lost in the corner of the walk in chillbox. the smell of old blood would permeate the plant and the bowels of your olfactory senses, for days. once they were green, yah, warrior green. he told us it was still good just make teriyaki. so i did and marinated with an extra dose of bourbon.

    unreal. it tasted real good and no need knife.

    so yah, beef no spoil only age.

  168. jack July 3, 2012 3:41 pm

    i know who it is, but i ain’t sayin’. and it ain’t yamamoto.

  169. al July 3, 2012 3:44 pm

    strike two from that list above.

  170. jm2375 July 3, 2012 3:49 pm

    Kekoa – bp in oven. After it’s pau, I gotta pick up Screecher from preschool. Yes, she needed a refresher course, so Wena volunteered to help her out. Then, it’s time for some grinds and good music.


  171. kapakahi July 3, 2012 3:50 pm


    Believe me that I wasn’t the one dishing out the scolding last Friday.

    Just happened to know who was getting the scolding…..and from whom…..since my buddy works for HNN.

    Lesson learned here is that…..not a good thing to leak info…..that the man himself specifically asked not to be leaked. Go ask Stretch….cuz he was there last Tuesday night too.

    Otherwise, always try to share info with discreet….as each source delineates.

  172. WarriorNY July 3, 2012 3:54 pm

    Sean Schroeder is accepted into UH grad program… I guess our two man race for starting QB just turned into a 3 man race…

    I really hope Graves can up his game under center cuz if not, Schroeder will take over the starting spot… And with Graham and Zwahlen coming in next year, the competition will only get harder… Good luck to all of the QB’s and lets hope competition brings the best out of all of them….

  173. ai-eee-soos July 3, 2012 4:06 pm

    as 172 said, above ….

    Quarterback Sean Schroeder (Duke) and center Kapua Sai have been accepted into UH’s graduate school and will be eligible to play for the Warriors this season.

    Each has two years of eligibility remaining.

    Schroeder, who arrived in town this afternoon, said he grew up as a USC fan, and marveled at the offense when Norm Chow was the Trojans’ offensive coordinator. Sai said he wanted to return home for “family reasons.” His brother, Kiha Sai, will be a UH freshman this year.

    see ST’s header ….

  174. Shoko July 3, 2012 4:10 pm

    I’m more concerned about the Warriors O-line than QB at the moment. If the line is a weakness, they might need a QB thats quick and can get out of tight situations. But, if the O-line comes together like the Great Wall of China, then I not too worried. 😉

  175. ai-eee-soos July 3, 2012 4:11 pm

    Good news

    AND each has two years of eligibility remaining: Quarterback Sean Schroeder (Duke) and

    center Kapua Sai have been accepted into UH’s graduate school and will be eligible to play

    for the Warriors this season.

  176. Shoko July 3, 2012 4:13 pm

    How come people mention local comedians like Rap and Frank, but they don’t talk about Andy Bumatai. That guy was funny.

  177. ai-eee-soos July 3, 2012 4:15 pm

    ST’s article in the headline news:

    UH accepts 2 football transfers

    By Steven Tsai

    POSTED: 03:57 p.m. HST, Jul 03, 2012


    Quarterback Sean Schroeder and offensive lineman Kapua Sai have been accepted into the University of Hawaii’s graduate school and will be eligible to play for the Warriors this football season.

    Schroeder was at Duke the past three years and Sai, a Saint Louis School graduate, played for Utah last year.

    They are using an NCAA rule that allows a player who has earned a bachelor’s degree to transfer to another school without sitting out a season.The NCAA requires a football player without a degree to redshirt for a year before being eligible to play for his next school.

    UH head coach Norm Chow said Schroeder will compete for the starting quarterback’s job. Last year’s starting quarterback, Bryant Moniz, completed his eligibility. David Graves and Jeremy Higgins were bracketed as the top quarterbacks after spring training in April.

    Chow said Sai will compete at center.

  178. Da Punchbowl Kid July 3, 2012 4:29 pm

    Great news about Schroeder and Sai! Best of luck to both!

  179. al July 3, 2012 4:46 pm

    kapakahi…didn’t mike cherry walk around with one “tan-kobu” (sp), lump on his head. this past weekend?

    or maybe just barred from the pressers hereafter?

  180. al July 3, 2012 4:50 pm

    kapakahi…i was just joking with you. i heard where the rage came from and to whom it was directed.

    perhaps, i may have fueled the fire a bit so someone jumped the gun and got his wrist slapped.

  181. mo808 July 3, 2012 4:51 pm

    I’m sooo glad for UH! Competition is healthy! Welcome to Schroeder & Sai! With three QBs I’m feeling a little better and add to that another offensive lineman! Cheehoo!

  182. sdbowfan July 3, 2012 5:16 pm

    Hopefully the Sai brothers on the offensive line. Kinda reminds me of the Ball brothers of UCLA and the famous “Twin Ball Sack”

  183. kapakahi July 3, 2012 5:36 pm

    Main thing is….that Schroeder got accepted into UH’s graduate school and will be joining the Warriors for this upcoming season.

    No harm no foul for the Warrior team….unlike for some others.

  184. free diet program July 3, 2012 6:05 pm

    It’s actually a great and helpful piece of info. I’m happy that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

  186. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 6:48 pm

    By the way, I’ve received some e-mails from folks and, nope, you’re all off on the next mystery guy.

  187. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2012 6:54 pm

    Kapakahi is correct in the fallout from last week.

    Schroeder wasn’t a secret. It had been talked about for more than a month. And last week, it was told at Na Koa’s fund-raiser.

    UH didn’t want any premature publicity on it because the school was making an exception in reviewing Schroeder’s application. There was a time issue because UH needed Schroeder approved before the start of training camp on Aug. 1. If officials felt they were being pressured, then they could delay the process.

    People were asked to wait a few days until it was official. But, alas . . .

  188. SteveM July 3, 2012 8:01 pm

  189. HEINEKEN July 3, 2012 8:06 pm


    Can i ask if the mystery player has Hawaii ties?

  190. Kekoa July 3, 2012 8:07 pm

    Good one SteveM.

  191. mo808 July 3, 2012 8:29 pm

    Miki masu = Mickey Mouse

    IMHO: I think that Rap is/was > than Frank’who is > Andy.

  192. bigislandkurt July 3, 2012 8:50 pm

    Andy Bumatai is one of Hawaii’s best comedians ever. And yes, he is still funny and still very much relevant. A true blue “stand up” comic. But could also sink into the sketch comedy too. Remember High School Dayze or All in the Ohana?

    can’t see ccsf closing. if the people who run the college are doing such a bad job, then would think that their superiors should be the one who gets the axe.

    how would they be able to answer to 90k students?

  205. WarriorNY July 3, 2012 10:23 pm

    Interesting according to Espn, Schroeder was #29 ranked QB in 2009. One spot above FSU’s Derek Carr and two spots above our Clark Evans. Lots of familiar names on that list…


  206. iwonderwhytheyhateme July 3, 2012 10:34 pm

    Happy to hear that Schroeder got in. We could really use him if he can play to his full potential. Welcome to Sai as well.
