Round 2

The Warriors yesterday had their second scrimmage of spring training. They ran 54 plays, with the offense doing well in the first half and the defense dominating in the second.

The good: DC Thom Kaumeyer is meeting his goal of building depth in personnel and schemes. The wolf defense allows the Warriors to play four linebackers, including two on the line of scrimmage. The tactic created a pass rush and, often, hurried the offense out of rhythm. DE Beau Yap is emerging as an edge rusher. Kaumeyer praised d-line coach Lewis Powell, noting: “Coach Powell is doing a fantastic job of getting them off the ball. That way we’re kind of playing on their side of the line of scrimmage. Then we can react to that.” By resting DE Paipai Falemalu, other DEs are getting work, such as Desmond Dean (who recovered a fumble) and Siaki Cravens. The way things are going, Tavita Woodard might be at TE the rest of the spring. The offense had its moments. Ben Clarke, who is the No. 1 center, is having a good spring. RBs Joey Iosefa and John Lister are a nice 1-2 punch. And David Graves is distancing himself as the No. 1 QB. He completed his first five passes, for 80 yards, and finished his part of the scrimmage with a 29-yard scoring pass to Scott Harding.

The not-so-good: There was inconsistency on both sides of the ball. The defense gave up big third-down plays in the first half; the offense struggled against the defensive pressure in the second half. Depth on the o-line continues to be a concern. LG Chauncy Winchester-Makainai has been bothered by back issues, and OT Sean Shigematsu still is adjusting after completing rehab from knee surgery.The kickers had difficulty with their accuracy yesterday, but no problems with the distance.

The twists: The Warriors are doing very well on fly sweeps, with Trevor Davis becoming an accomplished runner on end-around plays. He had a 16-yard run yesterday. And on a broken play, punter Alex Dunnachie completed a pass to Woodard.

Player to watch: Mike Sellers is having a good camp, at several positions. Yesterday, he was the No. 1 right safety. With his history at nickelback and corner, Sellers has the skill to play in the box or match up against an inside receiver.

Quote: Sometimes “they end up going through the motions because they’re unsure of themselves,” HC Norm Chow said. “I tell them: ‘I don’t care if you’re making a mistake if you’re going 100 percent.’ We’re trying to get that squared away.”

Up next: There will be a scrimmage tomorrow at Maui’s War Memorial Stadium. It also will serve as a beta for how the Warriors will travel.

Winchester-Makainai has been wearing No. 54 recently instead of his usual No. 62. The reason? He is the tester for the new material that will  be used for this coming season’s jerseys. The demo jerseys only come in certain numbers.

While awaiting my iPhone (no pressure, Scott), here are some slightly focused pictures of Warrior alumni.

Laupepa Letuli, now a musician, recently returned from a tour in Japan:


* * * * *

Former UH defensive tackle Keala Watson is Nanakuli’s JV head coach. He also teaches digital media. Watson and his wife are expecting their second child next month:


* * * * *

Former UH offensive lineman Aaron Kia is a busy man. He is taking classes toward a master’s degree, coaching at Walnut High, working as an EMT and, next weekend, will be playing in the Rose Bowl. He is a member of the Los Angeles Heat football team, which consists of firefighters and EMTs. Proceeds of the game go to an organization helping children who have suffered burns.


And in his spare time, Kia designs shoes.

    Go all out, every play.

    HC Norm Chow said. “I tell them: ‘I don’t care if you’re making a mistake if you’re going 100 percent.’

    Go Warriors !!!

  13. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 8:25 am


    It wasn’t intended that way, but after reading it, it looked worse in print, so I took it out. It would take a while to explain his comment.

  14. Bryson April 20, 2012 8:29 am


    Thanks for clarifying I’m glad that I wasn’t the only person that kind of raised an eyebrow when reading the comments…

  15. Hilo-Warrior April 20, 2012 8:50 am

    are there any stats from this scrimmage like the last one?

  16. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 8:58 am

    David Graves: 8 of 14 for 124 yards, 1 TD, 1 Int.

    Jeremy Higgins: 1 of 6 for 10 yards.

    Ikaika Woolsey: 0 of 3.

    Alex Dunnachie: 1 of 1 for 15 yards.

    lol, ok somebody corrected it. good-eye.

  19. Couch potato April 20, 2012 9:29 am

    growing pains for the Warriors, how long will it last until there is a level of comfort?

  20. madeinhawaii April 20, 2012 9:34 am

    Couch potato..

    I’m not sure you want a level of comfort coming out of spring practice. I think a level of familiarity is what you shoot for and give the players the rest of spring and summer to close in on that level of comfort before entering fall camp.

  21. Musashi April 20, 2012 9:43 am

    Hey ST, interesting to hear about Chauncy’s work as the beta tester. Does this mean that the team is getting new uni design for the fall, or is it just the material?

  22. jm2375 April 20, 2012 9:50 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Happy Aloha Friday.

    Have fun tomorrow on Maui to those attending the scrimmage. Wish I could go.

    Good morning Tsaikos and tomorrow is g day on Maui. Yeah. The Maui Moo Call will be at Tiffany’s on Lower Main Street at 12:30pm. Our table will probably be in the back side of the restaurant. If not sure when entering Tiffany’s, just ask for where the UH Football Fans section. No need invitation, just come and meet our Tsaikos family.

  28. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 11:00 am

    It’s just going to be new material.

    Design will be the same.

    Was it bomb squad or bomb squid?

    I was never good at Wheel of Fortune.

  30. whitey April 20, 2012 11:06 am

    da warriors transition appears to be getting better and it wil be vely, vely interesting to see when fall camp opens. keep up da good work warriors.

  31. Couch potato April 20, 2012 11:13 am

    don’t know why they call it a bomb squad since most times you only see one person manipulating the red wire, or is that the green wire, or the white one?

    i’d like to buy a black wire Pat.

    Thanks for the info, ST.

  35. Ralph April 20, 2012 12:12 pm

    Na Wahine up 4-0, top 3, Iwata with a 3 run HR in the 1st, and Robinson with a solo shot in the top 3.

  36. SteveM April 20, 2012 12:19 pm

    Thanks for the updates, Ralph. Keep ’em coming!

  37. A-joe April 20, 2012 12:49 pm

    ST- Was the offense running the Pro set against the Wolf D? How does the Wolf D stand up against the spread?

    Prolly not well.

    I’d love to see the D be able to effectively run any alignment against any scheme posed to them; be dominate to where they dictate the game.

  38. Kevin April 20, 2012 12:54 pm

    Top of 6th, with two outs, Enrique pinch hitting for Buchanan. RBI single, Robinson scores. 5-0 UH, Majam flies out for 3rd out.

  39. Manoa Mist April 20, 2012 1:03 pm

    Yes appreciate the updates!

  40. Wes'side Warrior April 20, 2012 1:05 pm

    Now this is bugging me…

    Was the puffed rice stuff in the white tubs from Long’s called “okoshi”? Had like little pieces of peanuts mixed in too? Man… maybe I should at least make some spam-something tonight.

  41. Wes'side Warrior April 20, 2012 1:05 pm

    Go, Wahine! Get my mind off of back-home snacks!

  42. Kevin April 20, 2012 1:07 pm

    Top of 7th. Iwata solo HR. UH 6-0 off 8 hits.

    Headed to bottom of 7th. UNR’s last chance today down 6-0.

  43. al April 20, 2012 1:09 pm

    Wes’side Warrior…toong mai.

  44. A-joe April 20, 2012 1:11 pm

    If you structure every opponents offense to run this way, the Wolf D will be successful all the time.

  45. al April 20, 2012 1:13 pm

    Team is 30 something and 4 and the only nationally-ranked team at UH right now. BUT… (fill in the blank)

    Don’t you know how this ‘game’ is played?

  57. Kevin April 20, 2012 2:03 pm

    They sing songs and spin tales of “it’s just a women’s sport…”

    40 years later, from 300K females participating in organized sports to now over 3 million… still NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED in the eyes of some… some that are many.

  58. Kevin April 20, 2012 2:10 pm

    UH is on it today!

    RENO, Nev.—The No. 14/18 University of Hawai’i softball team (36-4, 10-2 WAC) shut out Nevada, 6-0 on Friday afternoon at the Christina M. Hixon Softball Park. Stephanie Ricketts tied the UH career record with her 32nd complete-game shutout while Jessica Iwata launched two home runs to help lead the UH to victory.

    Ricketts (23-2, 8-0 WAC) tied former UH All-American Brooke Wilkins with her ninth shutout of the season. Ricketts now has 25 complete games this year. Against the Wolf Pack, she scattered three hits over seven innings with six strike outs and two walks and she did not allow a runner past second base. Ricketts’ nine shutouts this season ties her career-high set in 2009 and 2011. She already owns the UH career records for wins (97); strike outs (777); appearances (154) and innings pitched (881.0).

    The two teams square off in a doubleheader tomorrow to conclude the three-game series. The first pitch of the opener is at 1:00 p.m, 10AM HST.

  59. Couch potato April 20, 2012 2:15 pm

    now who will start the first game tomorrow?

  60. Couch potato April 20, 2012 2:19 pm

    good to see the breaking news section updated the erupting volcano news in mexico. at least they are keeping us informed of the Mayan activity. 🙄

    GO BOWS!

  62. jm2375 April 20, 2012 2:29 pm

    CP – if past history is any indication, it won’t.

    Did they really need to put that story about Moron Palin in the Breaking News section? She’s had her 15 minutes. Make her go away.

  63. Kevin April 20, 2012 2:31 pm


    Don’t forget about the weird killer disease in Vietnam.

  64. Couch potato April 20, 2012 2:33 pm

    i like Palin, she says “okole”. 😆

    heaven forbid that disease makes it’s way to Hawaii via Pho.

    Aaron Kia, spreading the Aloha! That’s priceless. I am glad that so many of our former Warriors are still giving back to their communities. The way i see it, these guys certainly deserved their scholarships toward a higher education and have returned the gesture many time over.

  75. oldtimer808 April 20, 2012 6:32 pm

    Aloha…finally pau with some yard work and I agree with Buffoman keep the politics out of here and stick to our first love ….UH Warriors and Rainbows….good job Wahines and Warriors for being victorious. I know the wahines had a slump in the middle of the season but look at them now. There were the negative comments earlier in the year about Coolen’s philosophy about hitting but I always prefer the aggressive approach and forget the slam hitting.

  76. oldtimer808 April 20, 2012 6:33 pm

    I meant slap hitting….I guess more tired than I realized from the yard work…bulk pickup so all the junks.

  77. whitey April 20, 2012 6:37 pm

    oldtimer808, congratulations on having the cleanest yd in neighborhood. yea!!!!! but also the tiredest yardman!!!!

  78. Kevin April 20, 2012 6:39 pm

    I’ll defer to the decisions of the coaches that toil with the student-athletes on a day to day basis and understand the dynamics of running a team in reality as opposed to from the sidelines or the computer monitor and keyboard.

  79. wafan April 20, 2012 6:49 pm

    Hoping the Warriors continue to show improvement even as they travel to and from Mau’i. Each will rise to the highest of their ability to perform and learn.

  80. oldtimer808 April 20, 2012 6:51 pm

    Kevin I too defer to the coaches and I support them because I know how difficult it is to coach so I will always support our coaches with much appreciation for their dedication and work ethic and yes I am the tiredest yardman in response to that one word or what…tiredest.

  81. whitey April 20, 2012 7:00 pm

    See… popularity contest. Wahine are ranked right now, HIGH RPI, took down the #1/2 team in the country, have two of the top pitchers in the NATION, etc…


    WHAT? JACKS***.

    All this does is PROVE that my theories are CORRECT.

    40 years ago 300K women participated in organized sports.. today over 3 million, but there is NO level “playing field”.

    Anyone denying the bias is so full of crap it’s coming out of their ears and nose.

  94. d1shima April 20, 2012 8:35 pm

    Spring ball happening across the country at all levels.

  96. jm2375 April 20, 2012 9:14 pm

    Perhaps the SID for softball needs to make sure the story gets to the S-A sports desk.

  97. Kevin April 20, 2012 9:17 pm


    Sorry, this is NOT on UH’s softball SID.

    The press release came out about 20 minutes after the game ended on UH’s site.

    For baseball, UH didn’t send up it’s release until 7:26pm on the UH site. The “breaking news” on the ‘Tiser came out at 5:55pm.

    This is NOT on UH’s softball SID.

    Switching channels, but staying with softball … awesome OIA championship game just completed with Campbell beating Kapolei in extra innings after the tying home run was taken off the board and ruled a catch. Great game girls.

  103. Kevin April 20, 2012 9:39 pm


    No one was advised to “calm down” after some expressed their displeasure about a radio host not covering UH football s-i-g-n-i-n-g day enough.

    A record was tied today.

    A team is the only ranked-team at UH right now.

    A team is #1 in the conference.


  104. whitey April 20, 2012 9:39 pm

    Looking forward to seeing da warriors and their fans tomorrow at War Memorial. Field is ready for FOOTBALL!!!!!!

  105. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 9:40 pm

    No, Kevin, it doesn’t serve you well.

    If you’re mad all of the time, after a while it just becomes white noise.

    Besides, SA probably is one of the only major papers with a fulltime softball beat writer. Jason’s a good reporter. I’m sure he’ll have a nice writeup tomorrow. He also has other duties. I don’t know his schedule but he might be part of the crew covering the LPGA tourney.

    So, relax.

    Besides, thanks to you, Pomai, Ralph, etc. we have ample coverage right here.

    Terrible to see a championship game end like that or be decided by that.

    The HHSAA needs to invest in a better outfield fencing alternative as that instance has happened too many times for it not to be an issue, especially in a championship game.

    I’m not putting it on Jason Kaneshiro, it’s always been made known that the editors issue the assignments and what not.

    Im only getting started and will be finished by Sunday and will send a letter to the editors.

    Besides, if people here react to my “white noise” or not that’s fine. I don’t care. Im not going to stay quiet.


  108. Kevin April 20, 2012 9:46 pm

    To clarify,

    Im not irritated at the assigned beat writer.

    The prioritization of what makes “breaking news” or what story gets a bigger portion of the sports page depending on the situation (i.e. who’s winning shouldn’t take a backseat to who lost a game) is an upper management/editor decision.

    Unless I am mistaken that is what I’ve been led to believe for the most part.

  109. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 9:50 pm

    It seems like you think there’s a conspiracy against the Wahine. I really don’t think so. LikeI said, the paper devotes a fulltime beat writer.

  110. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 9:55 pm

    I actually don’t know about the breaking news section.

    If it’s something that the news section would run, I’ll call it in. If not, I’ll just post it here.

  111. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 10:06 pm

    I think if you’re a subscriber and you’re not getting the story in the daily paper, that would be a valid complaint. The lack of a one-paragraph story in the free section, not so much.

  112. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 10:09 pm

    By the way, that’s also my stance with this blog. Nobody pays to read it and I don’t get paid to write it.

  113. d1shima April 20, 2012 10:14 pm

    So the word is out that the Colts will have them some Luck.

    How are the prospects looking for Warrior NFL hopefuls?

  114. Kevin April 20, 2012 10:18 pm

    I have an online subscription, $50/year just so I can read the sports articles.

    But this is more than some breaking news thing.

    If anything this “little” thing was the breaking point already.

    I think I’m gonna just stop talking softball here already. Besides there are enough people here doing so, there is no need.

    ST, nothing personal, you’re a good guy and accomodating, but I just can’t do this here anymore. I’m still sending my “valid” complaints in writing via mail to the proper personel because its what I feel I need to do.


  115. whitey April 20, 2012 10:18 pm

    d1, your english teacher is very proud of you.

  116. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 10:23 pm

    Okie and dokie.

    Sometimes a beer is good

  118. kapakahi April 20, 2012 10:34 pm


    What’s up with FB Jared Leaf? Haven’t seen or heard any practice reports on him.

    Also, what’s the latest ailment sidelining WR-turned-TE Darius Bright?

  119. whitey April 20, 2012 10:36 pm

    d1, excellent idea, but need to rest for tomorrow.

  120. al April 20, 2012 10:36 pm

    d1…perhaps this song by her would best soothe the ire of some.

  121. al April 20, 2012 10:39 pm

    i wonder how much that guy got paid for that biru song???

  122. d1shima April 20, 2012 10:40 pm


    Das for Sunday

    It’s Friday nite. beeru…..

    Oh, wait. whitey….you right. Early start tomorrow.

  123. oldtimer808 April 20, 2012 10:44 pm

    Aiya just logged in and read some of the post. The problem with writing on a blog is sometimes your thoughts are misinterpreted so I apologize if my comment on the Wahines caused some consternation. I respect the information that I get from coming on here so mahalo to ST for providing this blog as another avenue for information and recent happenings with the UH Athletic program. Just wanted to say I am looking forward to the football season whether we win or lose because of the great attitude and organization of our coaching staff.. Go Rainbow Warriors!!

  124. d1shima April 20, 2012 10:45 pm

    At least three cases I would think

  125. idratherbesailing April 20, 2012 10:47 pm

    Okay, so then by the same token why is there never any press on the Wahine sailors?

    Consistent top ten nationally year after year.

    Yeah sailing!

  126. d1shima April 20, 2012 10:48 pm

    Group hug!

  127. d1shima April 20, 2012 10:50 pm

    Don’t force me into my ABBA playbook…


  128. al April 20, 2012 10:50 pm

    d1…and if all else fails.

  129. whitey April 20, 2012 10:51 pm

    tomorrow is vely vely busy, so good good nite.

  130. oldtimer808 April 20, 2012 10:51 pm

    Al I was waiting for her to sing “Amazing Grace” in English after the Japanese version…hmmm..maybe she did and I just clicked off too soon but I am soothed and now I shall fade away and close my eyes and dream of …..private.

  131. Ralph April 20, 2012 10:55 pm

    and the Sailors, men and women, I believe, do it for the love of the sport, none are on athletic scholarships.

  132. oldtimer808 April 20, 2012 10:58 pm

    Mahalo Al that song “I say a Little Prayer” brings back memories from my old days but that song was written by Burt Bachkerat for Dionne Warwick and recorded around 1966 or 67. I know I spelt his name wrong..oh well. Ok now going moi moi.

  133. d1shima April 20, 2012 10:59 pm

    They could have their own blog…Waterblogged!

    (sorry, couldn’t resist)

  134. al April 20, 2012 11:01 pm


  135. al April 20, 2012 11:03 pm

    oldtimer…yah, your spelling needs help.

    yah, i know dionne did it, too. i just like aretha better since she hasn’t resorted to infomercials as a way of life.

  136. d1shima April 20, 2012 11:04 pm

    I going back to “island music”

    Going back to Vegas in a few weeks and hope to visit Uehara-san at Sato-ya. Maybe can pick up a coupla Uchinaguchi tunes

  137. d1shima April 20, 2012 11:06 pm

    …although this pace might be more like it

  138. al April 20, 2012 11:08 pm


  139. al April 20, 2012 11:10 pm

    d1…that’s soul music.

  140. al April 20, 2012 11:12 pm


  141. al April 20, 2012 11:12 pm

    okay…that did it.

    we drove everyone away.

  142. d1shima April 20, 2012 11:15 pm

    Dancing Queen?

    Why you gotta bring Koamahu into this? 😈

  143. Stephen Tsai April 20, 2012 11:18 pm

    Leaf is hurt. Not sure what he has, tho.

    Bright’s never fully recovered from the wrist surgery. He’s in yellow, meaning he can’t be hit.

  144. al April 20, 2012 11:26 pm

    long ago a coach used to bark in your ear.

    “you can play if you are hurt. but, not if you are injured. so what, are you hurt or injured!!!????”

    it definitely tested your manhood.

  145. d1shima April 20, 2012 11:27 pm

    Is the entire panoply of jersey wearers making the trip?

  146. d1shima April 20, 2012 11:31 pm

    Like whitey said, Long day tomorrow.


  147. Stephen Tsai April 21, 2012 1:02 am

    No, Chow says they’re leaving a few behind.

  148. bleedgreen April 21, 2012 2:09 am

    Kevin, I emailed Ferd about late or no breaking news report on Wahine softball. He forwarded the email to editor. If Jason is assigned prime reporter for softball, he should follow up with timely news reporting, especially for a Top-20 ranked team. Catch the game on UH game tracker. They also do a nice job of reporting – all sports.

  149. bleedgreen April 21, 2012 2:29 am

    If not for UH Athletics website, I would not know of athletes like TeRina Keenan (Auckland, New Zealand), Women’s discuss/shotput. The UH Track and Field women’s team has around 48 athletes.

  150. Midnight April 21, 2012 3:23 am

    Thank you and d1shima for your musical links. I especially liked the Hibari link because in the 50s, I patronized all the Japanese theaters to watch chambara. Toyo, Kokusai, in the back of Aala Park – Nippon?, Kapahulu Theater, Golden Harvest Theater.

    My friend introduced me to Japanese movies because they started to show them with subtitles – now you could follow what was being said to a fashion. My first Japanese feature was called “Daibusatso Toge” – “The Blind Swordsman, featuring Kataoka Chiezo, and Nakamura Kinnosuke. At first, the stars seemed like a scrambled lot, one looked like the other. But after seeing several movies, I began to discriminate, and notice the facial differences. Older stars: Okochi Denjiro, Kataoka Chiezo, Yamagata Isao, Kinnosuke Nakamura – my favorite, Sonny Chiba, Azuma Chiyonosuke. Hibari was my favorite Japanese actress, beautiful and melodious singing.

    That was years ago in the fifties, I am surprised that I still remeber their names, and all.

    Al, thanks for the trip down Memory Lane.

    Go Warriors!

  151. mo808 April 21, 2012 4:41 am

    Wow, just got caught up reading. d1 & al thanks for the levity and YouTube links! Except for the Amazing Grace number, I wished for a little streamer at the bottom of the screens in English. Hope everyone has a great time on Maui today! Go Warriors! Go Wahine! Keep voting!

  152. mo808 April 21, 2012 5:16 am

    …taiko drums kick it!

  153. oldtimer808 April 21, 2012 6:05 am

    Good morning….Midnight don’t forget Hashizuo Okawa another all time favorite samurai in the days of Toyo Theatre.

  154. d1shima April 21, 2012 6:16 am

    Great Morning All!

    Warriors No Ka Oi!

  155. 702WarriorFan April 21, 2012 6:23 am

    Morning Midnight,

    Hope your recovery is well along the way.

    Forgot all of the Japanese actors you mentioned. I lived in the area- Kukui/College Walk back then and did see most if not all of the same movies you probably saw. We could have discussed movies in CIQ back then too had we known. Get well!

    Looking forward to reading da news from Maui today.
