Hanohano's UH career ends

Defensive tackle Geordon Hanohano is retiring from college football after being diagnosed with a neck stinger, head coach Norm Chow confirmed this morning.

“It’s heartbreaking, very heartbreaking,” Chow said. “He’s a good player, and a good, young man.”

Hanohano suffered the injury in the first quarter of the BYU game. Surgery is not required, but because this is his second stinger, he has been advised he risks severe medical problems if he continues to play.

He has used his redshirt as a freshman in 2008, and he has appeared in too many games this season to apply for a medical hardship that would extend his career to a sixth year in 2013.

Last week, graduate assistant Daniel Bukarau was near the UH’s Campus Center when he heard a woman yelling to stop a robber on the run. Bukarau tackled the suspect, and then held him until Campus Security and HPD arrived.

Bukarau is a Kailua High graduate who played at Utah.

* * * * * *

Monday was only the first day of the experiment, but middle linebacker Benny Fonua and strong-side linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams made easy adjustments during their rotations with the first team. Decisions on their statuses will not be made until after Thursday’s practice.

Hunter Thomson, who has recovered from a knee procedure, has been cleared to play and will compete at defensive tackle.

    does he have any eligibility left? haha

  2. Shoko October 2, 2012 6:37 am


    Thought Demarest was going to be on first at the start of the BC show. Walked away from the computer for awhile, so I don’t know if I missed it or it’s comin up soon.

  3. Leron October 2, 2012 6:38 am

    Top 10!

  7. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 6:41 am

    I think Demo is BC’s go-to coach.

    good mornin’ warrior nation!

  11. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 6:51 am

    A Grease wonders . . . how many tears flow from a robber: 1) caught during his escape; 2) held while police and assorted security arrive.

    Also . . . On an immensely tangential note . . . anybody notice that the ’80s live at Foodland locations? Girls on Film (Duran Duran), 99 Luftballoons (Nena), Word Up (Cameo) . . . now, who sings that “What I Like About You” tune? And I’m singin’ ‘long. Feel like I’m gonna walk out into a 1980s Oahu after making me purchases there.

  15. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 6:55 am

    I love “Word Up.”

    That’s what life is all about: Wave your hands in the air like you don’t care.

    Unfortunately, Cameo only made a cameo in music history.

  16. letsgowarriors October 2, 2012 6:58 am

    so is Laurel starting at will? or Alo?

  17. RedZone October 2, 2012 7:01 am

    Way to go Bukarau. Was that a katoooosh?

  18. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 7:02 am

    Laurel is moving to will. No decision on this week’s starters.

    True and church, Mr. Tsai [A Grease serves Mr. Tsai 100% Kona coffee and a biscotti.]

    Word Up is a pretty brilliant tune — its entirety (style, delivery, performance, etc.) exists in the middle of the nexus of top 40 pop/R&B/maybe even a quick nod to country (Word Up‘s whistling)/electronic synth’. A tune to satisfy all.

    And let’s not forget Larry Blackmon’s big red plate :D.

  20. d1shima October 2, 2012 7:10 am

    As the warning in the description says: even if you’ve never heard it before, once you hear it, you will never be able to get the tune out of your head!


  21. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 7:10 am

    A long-snapper who shall remain anonymous already has promoted Fonua to “beast mode.”

    The general feeling is Fonua will be a star at this level.

  22. d1shima October 2, 2012 7:15 am


    Hoping that the changes at LB will result in some blitzers “getting home” soon…

  23. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 7:15 am

    No. 20.

    That long snapper is prolly right, Mr. Tsai. Good luck to Fonua and Garcia – Williams.

    I been high on Fonua, Garcia-Williams tandem from pre season. Didn’t think it would happen this soon but sounds exciting. Even if it will take some steps back in the beginning, I’m all for it. By the time these guys are juniors, gonna be big time players. I hope Laurel gets the start with them.

  31. papajoe2 October 2, 2012 7:26 am

    Loeffler has finally recovered from a fractured hand. If he can go, then UH won’t have to activate a freshman lineman.

  47. (Jesse) James October 2, 2012 8:20 am

    Good morning Tsaikos….Hope all have a great day.

  51. (Jesse) James October 2, 2012 8:25 am

    Oh oh….better watch out…no more bringing M&Ms into the stadium….or other “items”….LOL


  52. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 8:34 am


    You know what they say about green M&Ms . . .

  53. papajoe2 October 2, 2012 8:36 am

    #51 another reason for not going to games. It seems its no longer a happy place to be.

  55. WarriorNY October 2, 2012 8:41 am


    21 – 17 WarriorNY

  56. postmanke October 2, 2012 8:42 am

    Perfect game to make a change if needed. Might be good time to clear head in #1 position before too much ruins confidence and decision making. Everyone who played a little bit sports sees and knows the practice players vs game day players. Sometimes, you the game day players that dont practice well but do well in games when called upon. And sometimes you get the awesome practice guy that does everything well in practice but for whatever reason, doesn’t play well on game day. Everything else somewhat equal, it boils down to how you handle pressure while performing your job. As coache its gotta be a tough mudder to recognize this. Coming days is a good tale sign of how the coaches will be able to handle the pressure of pulling the trigger to make a switch. They don’t make a switch, I don’t think they enjoy pressure. The guys in waiting are waiting because they did not practice well against #1. If the team is struggling give some game time and THEN evaluate. Its gamble coaches dont like to make but good game to try and pull the trigger.

    Im pulling for Sean and admire his tact and his ability to parlay his oppurtunity into a starting position. Corralling teammates for co captain postion in a short amount of time is impressive enough. Hoping everyone can find a way.

  57. jeezy33 October 2, 2012 8:42 am

    Looks like Hawaii has offered WR Ammon Barker out of Utah.

  58. postmanke October 2, 2012 8:47 am

    way to go Benny, Jerrol! Nice to see more rotation. enjoy watching young talent going after it. Insticts will get you to the ball. refine later!

  59. al October 2, 2012 8:48 am

    jeezy33…are you thinking tight end of the future?

  60. jeezy33 October 2, 2012 8:49 am

    After watching some video clips, I’m thinking Barker would perfectly fit at TE if he can put on 25-30 pounds.

  61. al October 2, 2012 8:50 am

    i hope folks are reading into the subliminal messages that are abound with all these auditions.

    …and how about the why we are hotly after so many wr’s and db’s with top end speed?

  62. PeteJek October 2, 2012 8:52 am

    Why not move Justin Vele back to LB as well.

  63. al October 2, 2012 8:55 am

    we’ve actually lost four dtackles now. calen friel was a guy projected for some serious playing time this year.

    in spite of the tremendous losses…one door closes and another one opens, i am looking forward to seeing the kona kowboy in action, mike andrade will soon become a household name.

  64. jeezy33 October 2, 2012 8:55 am

    Also thinks its a matter of time before Hawaii offers Kawe Johnson. The kid just does so much on the field that height becomes a non issue already. No one would argue that he isn’t the best player in the state and he will find a way to start for some D1 team very fast. Guys that good just get on the field somehow.

  65. koakane October 2, 2012 8:58 am

    Ah, yes, Leron. Thanks for this :). Get thee to a Foodland if you haven’t already been there. You will enjoy.

    Anyboty recall The Rain by Oran “Juice” Jones (“have some hot chocolate” [which a Grease deemed a horrifying mixing of metaphors with the performer’s name already presenting “juice”] and “you stone cold BUSTED” somewhat or other.)?

    Click on a Grease’s name if you must needs see that fine The Rain music video if any of yous must needs take a trip down “you stone cold busted” avenue (in the rain, of course :P)

  67. isleboy October 2, 2012 9:05 am

    Heard the UH special teams coach on Bobby’s show this morning…he sounded

    “BEAT UP” ….three weeks ago prior to USC he was the energizer bunny…this morning

    he sounded like he just he just came thru the washing machine rinse cycle.

    That what losing and losing big will do to you……

  69. AlaWai October 2, 2012 9:09 am

    No Aloha at the Stadium!

    The stadium concession contracts put a great burden on potential vendors. In order to make it profitable a vendor needs to inflate their prices by 50 to 60 percent to breakeven. This year I noticed many past vendors have opted out. No one sells healthy snacks like a veggie platter with dip or any candies. Jamba Juice would be a hit but the price would be higher than beer. I wanted a coffee and paid $5 for an 8 oz cup!

    A hot dog and drink will hit you for $15.00! Sheesh!

    The stadium experience has deteriorated and is a huge reason why the average citizen can’t afford to take their family to the game. When Aloha Stadium opened and drew 40K plus fans peeps were allowed to pack bentos and snacks and everyone shared. It was fun and promoted a feeling of Ohana. I remember my parents sharing with a military family and not eating themselves.

    Progress is good but we have abandoned “Aloha”

    “Aloha Stadium” can no longer rightfully claim its name.

  70. Leron October 2, 2012 9:14 am

    Oran “Juice” Jones….the only song with blatant terroristic threatening….wanting to do a Rambo and flat blasting his girl and her lover. But then he changed his mind….and instead, “he chilled” That’s right, chilled.

  71. RedZone October 2, 2012 9:17 am

    When it comes to Aloha Stadium I am just happy that the Mountain West logo on the field is not purple.

  72. Stephen Tsai October 2, 2012 9:19 am

    Not sure about being “beat up.”

    Demo was pretty vocal and energized yesterday, and that was for a light practice.

  73. HawaiiMongoose October 2, 2012 9:21 am

    I expect Fonua to experience growing pains like any freshman taking the field against D-1 competition for the first time. Hopefully he’ll mature quickly, and by the end of the year become a leading force on rejuvenated UH defense with fast players who really “fly to the ball”.

    Then we can nickname them “Benny and the Jets”. 🙂

  74. Capitolist/WassupDoc October 2, 2012 9:25 am

    Ala Wai and others with complaints about Aloha Stadium facilities and concessions:

    Please convey your concerns directly to Scott Chan, the Stadium Manager. Every month Centerplate presents a report to the Stadium Authority. The public in attendance at these meetings can ask its representative questions – or Scott can do that if people cannot attend the meetings which are held on the last Thursday of each month – except in November and December when the meetings are held on the third Thursdays – at 10 am in the conference room behind the ticket office.

    The telephone number is 483-2500.

    BTW – I only paid $1.75 for a 12 oz cup of coffee at one of the Centerplate outlets on the mauka side at the Nevada game.

  75. (Jesse) James October 2, 2012 9:28 am

But yet when past season’s recruits were announced bloggers were jumping up and down saying how good the recruits and there was a good outlook for the future. Yeah, it is contradicting.

    When the birdies chirp many get excited. Yet when potential is not met and the losses mount some who were excited blame bad birdie evaluations.

    Man that sucks about Hanohano. Very unfortunate that he’ll never be back on the field.

    Excited to see Fonua in action. I really think he could be the next coming of a Pisa Tinoisamoa mold linebacker. Tough, instinctive, can hit and plays fast sideline to sideline…

  89. LizKauai October 2, 2012 9:56 am

  104. Independent Thinker October 2, 2012 10:35 am

    Reardon’s commentary yesterday about Chow needing more horses in order to win was hillarious. This is how that commentary came across:

    Reardon: Chow needs more horses because the horses we now have are crap.

    Translation: With the exception of Shroeder and one or two other favored Chow players, the rest of the players are crap and therefore they need to be replaced with people specially selected and recruited by Chow.

    I don’t know how most felt, and frankly, I don’t really give a damn, but I did feel sad for the current players. Every single player on the team right now is a gifted athlete, capable of doing great things, especially on the field, and that is likely why they made the team and are currently on the team. To suggest they are not good enough and this is why Chow is losing, which the Reardon commentary did quite clearly, is a sad and pathetic excuse for not winning.

    In life, you play the hand dealt and you don’t cry about it. Make some lemonade from them lemons, dude. Stop making excuses for Chow at the expense of these talented and exceptional young men, Reardon.

    A decent coach can make even average players great players, if he can get them to play together, unselfishly, as a unit. Doing this is what makes a coach a great coach.

    At least mine was co-ed though… thank God!

  107. madeinhawaii October 2, 2012 10:39 am

    Jimmy the Lock…

    A lot of good recruits who committed also fell through the cracks… whether or not they qualified academically, picked up some bad habits along the way, fell behind academically, career ending injuries, etc… AS a mid-major you will have a lot of these players that are on the fringe.

    The players we have aren’t a bad lot for a wide-open offense. Our smaller, faster, skilled Olinemen are good enough for pass blocking. I think Schroeder for the most part has more than enough time to read and make his passes. Whether he sees the open man or if our receivers are getting open, is a different story. If this were the RnS, the amount of time he has is more than adequate. The former coaches recruited for their game plan, not Chow’s.

    Chow doesn’t need all that many slots and WRs, we got plenty.

    Defensively, too. I think we recruited for zone play with man coverage only in the red zone. The former defensive coaches wanted players with exceptional football IQs in the back. Man coverage will wear the defender down against faster, stronger opponents.

    Good morning everyone!

    We’ve recovered from the post-cruise “land sickness” and Dory’s “Not a Surprise” dinner Cattle Call at Club Genji is on at 7:00 pm tonight! (I say it’s a Karaoke Call too. 😉 )

    See whoever can make it there… no RSVP needed!

  109. d1shima October 2, 2012 10:46 am

    Good decisions are often not the easy ones to make.

    I applaud Geordan, George and Lei for their collective decision. The future is bright and welcoming.

    Mahalo for all the sacrifices made on behalf of the program…always a Warrior!

  113. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 10:52 am

    Kevin # 106, hahaahah, yeah. Co-ed Catholic gooooooood!!! What’s with this Vatican butler (“the butler did it!”) . . . didn’t know the Pope had this kind Bruce Wayne action.

    Steve M. 108 . . . A Grease has been to Genji twice, at the most. Real relaxed atmosphere (this was years ago, mind you). Hostesses don’t bother you like how hostesses at other bars bother you. Great bar food from what I remember (yes, again, many years ago and I still remember). The mama san like my rendition of Humperdink’s After the Lovin’. Didn’t have th heart to tell her that was first and last performance of it. A Grease is more of a jukebox guy, heh.

    My best wishes to the Hanohano ‘ohana for the privilege of watching their son represent the Warrior Nation. You have much to be proud of, and as a fan, I can’t thank you enough. Best of luck in the future and remember…You will forever be ALways A Warrior!

  117. mo808 October 2, 2012 11:00 am

    God bless Geordon Hanohano! Tough break but good decision! Take care!

  118. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 11:03 am

    # 112 . . . hahahahahah!!! Seen it all already! SAMUI ISLAND WEDDINGS, yeah, “brrrrrrrrr, grab my London fog, it’s FREEZING on this beach at this wedding!!! Maybe snowing on the beach, too? Yeah, when did I miss the detonating nuclear warhead that should’ve preceded this nuclear winter at the beach?!” Man.

  119. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 11:13 am


    I can see how it relates to offense in certain cases but defense? Bigger, faster, stronger, were visibly apparent in 75% of the games played so far.

    Yeah, we gotta play with the hand that was dealt but pairs can easily be beaten. Bluff? No way, the Warriors all know what needs to be done. I look forward to the next two-thirds of the season.


  120. iwonderwhytheyhateme October 2, 2012 11:15 am

    Have the defensive coaches placed any EXTRA emphasis on teaching/practicing tackling techniques etc. this week?

  121. whitey October 2, 2012 11:19 am

    the warriors and fans will miss you Geordon Hanohano and I wish you well on your future endeavors.

  122. d1shima October 2, 2012 11:21 am

    Quick show of hands…who thinks any D1 defensive player does not already know how to properly execute a tackle drill?

  123. iwonderwhytheyhateme October 2, 2012 11:25 am


    I think every d1 player knows how to properly execute a tackle drill but obviously knowing and DOING is completely different.

    So again, ST, any emphasis this week? Hope so!

  124. Kevin October 2, 2012 11:35 am

    Is it… 1:30pm yet???

    Will be looking forward to Ferd’s tweets. 😈

  125. Warrior Dave October 2, 2012 11:43 am


    Great decision as your health should always be your #1 priority. Thank you for deciding to be a Warrior. You will always be a Warrior for life!

  126. manoa#1 October 2, 2012 11:50 am

    chow should hire bukarau to teach the defense how to tackle.

  127. Normally I do not read post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me to take a look at and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thank you, quite nice post.

  128. HawaiiMongoose October 2, 2012 11:57 am

    Sorry hear about Hanohano. Thank you for being a Warrior Geordon! Best wishes to you for a successful and happy life.

    mahalo and aloha geordon hanohano…

    a very wise decision. there is more to life than football.

    we are forever proud of our young local boys who decide to stay home and play for their family, friends, and state.

    you have come a long way from the days at kalaepohaku to now. growing not only as a solid d1 player who gave of your self day in and day out for the program but as a man whom you can be proud of. pursue that degree and make it happen.


  132. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 12:03 pm

    Good news, State is taking over the general election for Hawaii County. :mrgreen:

  133. wafan October 2, 2012 12:04 pm

    Anyone else having a difficult time loading the SA?

  134. al October 2, 2012 12:07 pm

    part of the problems have been…is that quite often we were in the right spot at the right time however we did not make the play.

    sometimes we were over zealous and rushed in to the hole to quickly and were unable, therefore, to make a play because we weren’t in an athletic position to move our feet whether laterally left or right or to adjust vertically as well.

    we need to go in with eyes wide open and we need to “break down” so we can make the play without the player juking or running right past us.

    enter two promising young men who will make it happen.

  135. al October 2, 2012 12:07 pm

    wafan…maybe you need to do a virus sweep.

  136. al October 2, 2012 12:12 pm

    122. true.

    its not about technique its about being able to use the technique by giving yourself a chance to make a play.

    its like that song, “fools rush in…” can go bursting in there blindly only to have someone juke left go right or whiz on by because you so blindly hit the hole too soon. linebackers need to read and react.

  137. wafan October 2, 2012 12:12 pm

    al . . .

    Did that. The SA is the only site that takes a long time to load.

    And when it finally does it looks goofy.

  138. letsgowarriors October 2, 2012 12:14 pm

    crazy, w Hanohano now retiring, we only have 4 players left from the 2008 class.

    Haku Correa, Paipai Falemalu and Art Laurel who greyshirted. Alema Tachibana also greyshirted but i dont even know whats goin on w him.

    the 2009 class not looking too bright either.

  139. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 12:15 pm

    Athletic position? It’s all basic technique, plain and simple.

  140. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 12:18 pm

    “its not about technique its about being able to use the technique by giving yourself a chance to make a play.” Huh? It is about technique. You can only use technique by knowing technique.

  141. Bulla October 2, 2012 12:18 pm

    prayers to Geordon and his ohana; in high school, he and ‘the beast’ were called ‘double trouble’ by a local publication. he is a good kid, and gave everything he had on the field and has nothing to be ashamed of. this is a violent game, as we all know too well now.

    the D line is getting pretty sparse, so the backers will have to pick it up BIG time.

    based on when they enrolled:

    2008 – Miah O, Haku, Paipai

    2009 – Laurel, Tachibana, Stutz, Alo, GDL, Winchester-Makainai, Shutter, Graves.


    i believe Malepeai, Loeffler, Iosefa and Lister all greyshirted and enrolled in 2010.

  144. Deng Xiaoping October 2, 2012 12:26 pm

    Chow, your fortune cookie for today says even a blind man would have known that Fonua was a stud at LB and should have been a starter from game one.

    The fortune cookie also says if you keep “overlooking” these kinds of players, of which there are many on the team, good fortune will not come your way.

  145. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 12:27 pm

    I thought Miah was a 2007 grayshirt?

  146. letsgowarriors October 2, 2012 12:29 pm

    thats why i said “based on when they enrolled”

  147. HiFlyer October 2, 2012 12:30 pm

    The Show part two is on now.

  148. al October 2, 2012 12:33 pm

    jimmy…they know technique. this is not the issue. it is about being in a position to make a play.

    if you are rushing in to the hole blindly you could run right past the cutting rb or he could juke you out of your jocks because you may have been flat footed or on your heels and unable to make a move to exercise your technique.

    did you ever play on defense?

  149. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 12:34 pm

    Ok, gotcha.

  150. 3-Prong October 2, 2012 12:35 pm

  151. jimmy the lock October 2, 2012 12:36 pm


    You said it is not about technique. I’m just saying it is. If you know technique then you are in a position to make a play or a tackle. BTW, I played safety in Pop Warner. :mrgreen:

  152. koakane October 2, 2012 12:43 pm

    listening to hearing and the 1st UH speaker is tip toeing, slipping and sliding the question. really looking bad

  153. al October 2, 2012 12:44 pm

    jimmy babee…apparently we both read from different dictionaries.

    i see where your “technique” is and its a little different from my definition.

    but, i hear you brother.

    no need to prolong this issue.

  181. madeinhawaii October 2, 2012 1:04 pm

    How can they claim the right to privacy when there is clearly a waiver of privacy rights in the documents in question? Seems to me UH has a lot they want to hide and sweep under the rug. No telling how many millions are under there.

  182. wafan October 2, 2012 1:05 pm

    Hope he does not snore either.

  183. madeinhawaii October 2, 2012 1:05 pm

    if we count the wasted millions we will probably find a number that dwarfs the Athletics deficit.

    okay…i see that we observe the same things. let’s have a contest now. name the dozer?

    who is this guy?

    He just nodded. lol

  189. Old School Dave October 2, 2012 1:15 pm

    Best of luck to Geordon Hanohano. Thank you for all of your time and effort in representing UH. As mentioned by others, get your degree and move on with your life.

    To the players – this a valuable life lesson you are experiencing now. Things will not always go the way you want it to in life. You just have to fight through it and find a way to overcome life’s obstacles. Like the old cliche: “Tough times never last forever, but tough people do.”

  190. Kevin October 2, 2012 1:16 pm

    Such temerity!

  193. al October 2, 2012 1:18 pm

    so now the senators won’t reveal the names.

    Hate to say it, but, “legalese” got this Special Committee on the ropes. As legalese will do. “If you disagree . . .” “If you want . . .” and with no real hard, substantive response from Mercado Kim and gang. Your boss gets mad w/you, tell you to do something, you do it. Or you lose your job. This special committee thing? The only consequence, seemingly, on the other side of this Committee? Embarrassment. That’s IT.

    Funny how Ihara’s wearing Warrior black. Donna Mercado Kim sports a decidedly silver sport coat and black (blouse) underneath. Slom got his UH aloha shirt on.

    Unless the Special Committees are able to dole out punishment that can be reinforced by the courts, these legaleses will always appear as an alternate reality Goliath that defeats David.

    Man, you can just switch between the Yanks/Boston game and, during the commercials, just switch to the Wonderblunder(buss) show.

    ‘Specially with Ihara’s (and is he attempting some kind of humor?), these Senators’ questions are too damn long.

    Seems only the promoter’s going to get the cr@p end of the stick when this is all said and done. Then, again, look at Ollie North who most probably (did I imagine that he had his own show on one of the Fox channels?) Did very well following Iran-Contra.

    Yes that is WassupDoc with her hand over her face.

  230. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 2:12 pm

    At this rate, Sheriff, Apple, M.R.C., all of ’em should have the standard answer, “I really don’t care, Senators. Nothing will happen to my job. And this kind of scre-up will happen again. And again. And again. And, don’t worry, we have unlimited funds because of the taxpayer” AND THE Senators can nod in agreement and they can all laugh, all past testifiees come back into the frame, Olelo can add a laugh trax.

    “Sherlock Slom” says Mercado Kim. See? All a joke. They’re all one gang.

  234. cee808 October 2, 2012 2:17 pm

    The response … “I would have hoped that my superiors would have checked into that” (more or less) is not one that I found compelling.

  236. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 2:24 pm

    Well. This doesn’t go to what Slom actually has presented here. Woah.

    Slom was able (without taxpayer funds, he assures) seemingly [paraphrasing here]:

    • To confirm that the address involved with the Wonderblunder(buss) turned out a residential house (which didn’t have protective bars on its windows the same way the other houses around that house did). Somewhere in Miami

    • Some kind of “strip mall” situation with another address found on the website mentioned with regard to UH-M/Athletic Dept. Arrangement of the Wonderblunder(buss).

    It would’ve taken a single phone call to confirm.

    Slom also just commented that UH was lucky that Wonder’s people contacted UH when they did to tell UH that they have no schedule to play UH-M/Stan Sheriff. A Grease agrees.

    Apple’s up now. He JUST TOLD Mercado-Kim, “I hope you’ll find me transparent” . . . KEEP him at his word, ya’ll . . . watch for the lawyah(s) whispering into his ear at this hearing (Olelo channel 52).

  237. cee808 October 2, 2012 2:29 pm

    #234. It will be interesting to see how this all ends up, but it seems to me possible that the objective was to get money in hand and then have the University default on the contract so they could keep the money legally.

  238. greenthumb October 2, 2012 2:38 pm

    “the opportunity presented itself in this context” — not transparent

  239. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 2:39 pm

    ‘Nother, “whoa!!!!”

    Looks like — at the very least — Mercado Kim might’ve caught M.R.C. in, well, let’s call it a possible “oversight” at this time.

    When Greenwood testified, Mercado Kim has just said, Mercado Kim asked Greenwood, “was an HPD report filed?” Greenwood/M.R.C. Responded, “‘absolutely'”. Mercado Kim CALLED the HPD police chief himself.

    According to Mercado Kim, HPD has no apparent record of UH filing a police report regarding this “stealing” of $200,000 regarding the Wonderblunder(buss) situation.

    Apple’s saying that because they went to the FBI, they were under the impression that as the FBI — as a highly trained law enforcement body — the investigation was in good hands, yes?

  244. cee808 October 2, 2012 2:46 pm

  245. Warrior Dave October 2, 2012 2:49 pm

    Apple is saying that some coaches were not happy with Jim as AD and would possibly leave. FACT OR FICTION????

  246. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 2:51 pm

    There’s too calm a tone with all of the UH officials testifying. They know the worst is over. And they if this happens again, they can go through the motions again, just like they’ve been doing in front of this committee. Their most harrowing thing is to be able to stay awke through these long-winded Senator questions.

    Here’s a Grease’s question: if Donovan’s SO well-versed, SO backgrounded in marketing as Apple’s making Donovan out to be . . . then why (you can almost predict a Grease’s question) why couldn’t Mr. Marketing manage to put on a simple concert? Isn’t something like THAT aligned with what marketing types DO???? Concert!!!!! Yeah!!!! One of the ultimate marketing tools!!!!! Make it happen!!!! Example: news reporters/journalists!!!! None of them ever reported the news without writing it online or in newsprint or announcing it on TV!!! Get it?

    Didn’t realize “Part II” was on today. The comical posts got my head spinning once again. Can’t believe we allow fools like these to get away with what they get away with. We all know, we’d be fired in an instant at our minimum-wage jobs, if we were found to be even half as incompetent as these characters have been. And who knows how much more there is to dig up under that rug?

    Anyways, back to lurking. Just wanted to send prayers out, and wish Hanohano the best in whatever he pursues next.

    Heh, I’ll go look. I don’t see Apple disagreeing with Mercado Kim, so, either Mercado Kim is correct or Apple isn’t familiar with how Greenwood responded (did they discuss before either testified?)? No? Either way, looks bad. Or what else?


    October 2nd, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    #240. I liked that Senator Kim pointed out that HPD informed her that they would have conducted the investigation that UH paid contracted lawyer’s to perform … as well as follow up on where the money went

    Yeah. UH’s lawyahs would’ve said something differently, though, sadly.

  249. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 3:11 pm

    Apple needs to use his Outlook calendar. He wants to be transparent? He got too many “date cavities” (don’t know what happened on what day). He knew he was coming to this hearing. Where are his notes? He’s got no notes in front of him.

    Beginning to get testy (pardon the pun. “Testify” – “testy”, get it?!! Bwahahahah!!!!) between Mercado Kim and Apple. Tune in.

    Here’s what this informational meeting is about (from Olelo 52’s screen description):

    Review of the oversight, accountability, transparency of the operational/financial mgmt. of the University if HI Sys. Incl. but not limited to the UMH Athletics Dept.

    Mercado Kim going into the area of Donovan’s new marketing position now. Questionin Apple. Apple saying he had the position in mind before he arrived to UH, did a Grease hear (get it!?!? “Hearing” – “Hear”???? Bwahahahahah!!!) Right?

  250. Dennis Halloran October 2, 2012 3:11 pm

    Just finished watching Broke on ESPN. Well done but money is much simpler for those who earn lots of money early, aka, athletes.

    Great rule of thumb. Invest all money in Muni Bonds, professionally earning $50,000 on each million after tax.


    Hollywood earners fall in this category and Beverly Hills Brokerages sell more Muni Bonds than any other city outside NYC

  252. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 3:15 pm

    Mercado Kim flailing/fatiguing a bit . . . In response to her, “you had two positions” question, all Apple has to say is, “OF COURSE I was prepared to pay $200,000 for the marketing position” that Donovan currently has.

    She rebounding, though . . . She just threw a logic bomb to Apple regarding the recent $90,000 deal. Tune in.

    Fund for $90,000 . . . approval letter dated August 15, 2012 (let’s HOPE it’s 2012 and not, say, 2011, 2010 :P) “If in fact, this was done, doesn’t this put pressure on the search committee?” – Mercado Kim.

    Apple really reeling now. “The only thing I can figure is [that] we did it ‘in case’.” Yeah. Like Chris Rock (I believe?) Said about insurance: “Just in case $#17.”

    Who the heck this green and white countryside checkerboard button down shirt-wearing Senator? It’s like they have him in a box on side and whenever they tired talking, they open the box. The heck?

    CUPA standard: $240,000. Think every single one of you here deserve a CUPA standard salary. Not these clowns.

    Mercado Kim really on a roll with the big money payouts. I just saw Dredd, the recent Judge Dredd movie. Make Mercado Kim a Mega City-1 judge, please. She really starting Thanksgiving turkey early with Apple (and Apple’s not the apple in the turkey’s — pig’s? — mouth here).

  261. cee808 October 2, 2012 3:30 pm

    Wow. On the one hand, UH is redacting personal pronouns to avoid the risk of risking a lawsuit, and on the other Apple is pretty much saying everyone in Athletics is glad JD is gone. I guess that is what $200K/year buys.

    That green and white countryside checkerboard is actually a Palaka Shirt. Quite appropriate dress for Hawaii. And that Senator is Kouchi, I believe representing Kauai and Ni’ihau.

    I actually think he had some good questions/observations.


  264. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 3:36 pm

    What? Espero come to the meeting whenever he like?

    You know, what Apple’s saying right now about a search committee’s pretty sound. Espero’s also right in saying (paraphrasing), “we lost a lot of money ALREADY!!!” Mercado Kim reinforces Espero’s statement with her own.

    Now talking about medical school, Mercado Kim brings up. Yeah, good. $#17, just talk about whether a third Death Star might be constructed already, the heck is this medical school tangent?

    Just having some fun w/the guy here. I mean, heck, it DOES look like he talks whenever he wants (or they need for them to do so).

    A Grease knows of the Batlle of Ni’ihau. No?

    Other than entertainment value what good are these hearings. The politicos scripted the whole proceedings casting themselves as the good guys and the admin and their lawyers as villians with hired guns.

    Mercado-Kim and Slom combined probalby have more TV time through out the year than the rest of the senate. Talk about a set up.

Mercado Kim’s doing the damage — well, she’s the hair of this little State Capitol Marvel’s The Avengers anyway, eh?

    Cocobean is right. This “[S]Informational Briefing” serves only to beef up ‘lection time resumes. Give this Committee Mega City-1 Judge powers, then we talking.

    The Sens just need to go ahead, craft a law to punish those in UH Admin’ in the proverbial “next time it happens” (which these UH Admin’ folk keep chanting/preaching). Cite waste of moneys ultimately procured via tuition (read: “you mean gotta raise tuition THAT much because of _____________blunder?”)

    Watch for Slom and/or Lee’s quip, “hey, nice shirt” (ahahah ahahhaah ahahahaahah ahahahaha) should be comin’ up :P.

  272. duffer October 2, 2012 4:19 pm

    What surprised me was that the majority of coaches didn’t want JD back? Did I hear that correctly?

  273. HiFlyer October 2, 2012 4:21 pm

    duffer, you heard right.

  274. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 4:25 pm

    Slom and Lee on right know — IDENTICAL UH ALOHA SHIRTS. Go watch dueling ‘loha shirts.

    Apple’s comfortable — in the mood, even — enough after this briefing to go have a steak and lobster w/pals. No real worries for him after this briefing (read: “donnnnnnn’t worry, Senator, wonnnnnnnn’t happen again, yeah? Yeah.”).

    “This will never happen again. At least in athletics.” — Lee. Oh, good. Read: now somewhere on campus like, oh, I dunno, TIM can have this happen to them. Wonderful.

    All the auditors. All the lawyahs. They couldn’t, what? They couldn’t contact the SAME Stevie Wonder folks who ended up telling UH, “sorry. We know of no concer to be played at Stan Sheriff. All God’s children, everyone in the world . . .”

  277. John Fitzgerald Byers October 2, 2012 4:32 pm

    coaches sick of Donovan? maybe some coaches felt having their budgets effected because of not being able to meet fundraising goals were a bit much? especially considering the hoops they have to jump thru to try to raise those monies? maybe those fundraising goals really meant replacing monies to their budget instead of using those monies to help make their programs better?

    pull the curtain back. this will allow light to come through.

  278. John Fitzgerald Byers October 2, 2012 4:34 pm

    on the other hand, who’s to believe what anyone of those bachman buddies have to say. however pretty strong statement by apple if that is true about what the coaches felt about donovan.

    I understand its hard for some here to believe. ppl here love Donovan and he was a very “open” AD to this blog and well-known to the people here. But … but …

    Hey. Who knows right?

  279. madeinhawaii October 2, 2012 4:37 pm

    Maybe Donovan was too much into the football end of the athletics department? Is that worse than the Pres who never went to a game?

  280. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 4:41 pm

    Think Donovan is completely out of the pic’. Time to give Freitas a shot. He only THINKS he don’t want that position because he never thought he’d ever get it (he was “passed over” at least once, right?).

    Yeah, tha’s not hard to believe. They nevah like Donovan come back when it was figured Freitas could be put in. What’s the expression? Hoomalemale? All around.

    Ah. Super time. Goin’ out. A Grease will shut the heck up, now.

  281. greenthumb October 2, 2012 4:46 pm

    273 and others, I looked at the roster of coaches on the UH site. If you include assistant and associate and volunteer coaches ….

    If you take the total and subtract the 44-45 coaches who tod Apple they were relieved JD was relieved, that leaves just over a dozen who didn’t tell Apple they were happy with what happened.


  282. John Fitzgerald Byers October 2, 2012 4:49 pm

    Math isnt as vague as the spoken word. be as it may, is there documentation of this alleged feeling from the coaches about donovan? if not, its apple’s word against whoeverz…

    While I am not inclined to believe anything the bachman boyz say, there are things that wouldnt surprise me if the majority of all coaches felt he needed to go and if some want to be in denial then that is fine. people once thought the world was flat.

  283. John Fitzgerald Byers October 2, 2012 4:54 pm

    More questions… when did these coaches tell Apple? Why did these coaches tell apple? was it part of a meeting? part of an inquiry? what? What was the context? No documentation? sorry braddah “apps”… no proof.

    see when I said that there are somethings muttered about why Donovan could have lost favor with the majority of uh coaches, I too question the allegation yet not surprised completely if true.

  284. RedZone October 2, 2012 4:57 pm

    Damn I know what the problem is. It is medical. They all have amnesia. It must be the water.

  285. HawaiiMongoose October 2, 2012 4:57 pm

    What I thought I heard Apple say was that no one within the Athletic Department notified him to say they wanted JD back. That’s not quite the same as telling Apple they wanted JD out.

  286. greenthumb October 2, 2012 5:05 pm

    Lee doesn’t have agenda? 38 seconds of googling:


  287. John Fitzgerald Byers October 2, 2012 5:05 pm

    hawaii mongoose,

    If that is what you heard then there it is. Thank you for clarifying that. would be out of character for coaches to openly express such an opinion like “no we dont want him back” considering the history the bachman boyz have to keeping people under their thumb to preserve silence.

    a while back someone asked why uh coaches don’t speak up to get donovan back.

    I see two things: dey no like him back and felt relieved or two, they are afraid to speak up since all coaches supposedly can be fired from UH without cause and those jerks up there dont like a voice of opposition.

  288. duffer October 2, 2012 5:11 pm

    Did the newly hired Wahine basketball coach and her assistants not want JD back? The Wahine soccer coach and her assistants? Coach Gib? Coach Shoji? Coach Wade?

    Hard to imagine 44 coaches. They should make public the coach’s names.

  289. Ha! October 2, 2012 5:11 pm

    BOR James H. Q. Lee simply laughs off any questions tossed at him that he can’t answer. He knows nothing can be done to him.

    Great chutzpah.

    quite a statement for the coaches to go with two freshmen who weren’t even in the picture a week ago to jump start their careers.

    not totally surprising, because many said that benny the jet and jerrol el zorro were really pushing the incumbents with their great athleticism.

    i know jeezy33 been singing their praises since early camp.

    I wouldn’t know a subliminal message if it hit me square in the head! 🙂

    If they were so dissatisfied with JD, why didn’t they come forward earlier? I can understand Coach Chow, but the others………

    Who hired Beeman, Nagamine, Wade, and Gib? Why would their assistants not back JD?

    I’m just not understanding the process I guess. 🙁

  304. John Fitzgerald Byers October 2, 2012 5:49 pm

    Uh coaches will not speak up and openly about administration. Again, they can be fired without cause and coaches have enough to worry about without getting fired for speaking up. Most coaches don’t have the kind of influence others may have. volumes and volumes could be written about administrative handcuffs and lipservice from so many coaches over the years spanning many different administrations.

    So sad the same distractions and obstacles keep our hard-working coaches from realizing full potential.

  305. cee808 October 2, 2012 5:58 pm

    The “hearing” sounds like the usual political 3-ring circus.

    UH has 18 head coaches, at least 7 of whom were hired during JD’s tenure: Wade, Gib, Cole (water polo), Nagamine, Wong (sand vb), Chow, & Beeman. Not sure about Lori Castillo (women’s golf), who is in her 5th season as HC.

    How many of the other coaches have had their contracts extended by JD?

    Every time a Senator (certainly, the UH folk ain’t saying the following word, no doubt, via advisement of lawyahs!?!) says the word “fiasco”, a Grease thinks “Lupe Fiasco”; maybe UH-Stan Sheriff Center should get Lupe to perform for fundraiser. Ah, the irony.

    JFB – #305 – I think if a coach gets fired before the end of their contract, there is a buyout clause in their contracts, which I guess is negotiable (e.g. McMackin). Since e-Bolla was fired with cause, we didn’t have to pay him, did we (other than the legal fees… 😈 )?

    i think the grease need fo’ learn the proper hawai’ian.

    ho’omalimali it is.

    Thank you, hawaiian, for that correction. Will put it in my notebook here. You knew what I was getting at, though, apprently.

    THIS BRIEFING IS STILL GOING ON (10/02/2012, 7:35PM)

    Question: you mean to tell a Grease that NO one at UH, NO BIG OR SMALL OR NO money giver that supports, in small and big ways, UH, NO ONE has connections or knew Stevie Wonder enough to go, “hey, waitaminute. I can CALL Stevie Wonder! Lemme help you folks fix this”? Or . . . find this person 😀 .

    DMK is one tough and thorough wahine. How long has today’s hearing been going on?

  317. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 7:17 pm

    Old School Dave # 317 . . . a Grease knows he was watching it at 2pm. Think started, maybe, a bit earlier. Think they trying to wrap things up by today.

    And then — cross ya fingahs — the Frank Castle (read: Punishment) portion of this Stevie Blunder(buss) begins.

    so sad for Gordon, prayers for no complications. Make the braddah an assistant coach and have it be a spring board for a coaching career. Take care of our fallen warriors!!!

  320. Bleed Green & White October 2, 2012 8:56 pm

    So, after the second go ’round with the Senate Accountability Committee, to me, here is what we know.

    The UH Board of Regents, well, they are an embarrassment, top to bottom, including UH President MRC Greenwood.

    Donny Mercado Kim and company made them all look very, SO very foolish, incompetent even. Such a damn shame!

    Chancellor Apple pretty much said most of the coaches did not want JD back as AD, in fact, he said many would actually step down from the positions….To me, that’s great leadership to get rid of the problem.

    Now comes part two of the problem: The “Old Boy” network will strengthen, if Rockne Freitas is allowed on board. You think people of transparency issues now, well, wait to see what it looks like if The Rock takes over. I, personally, have talked to almost half of the 44 coaches that signed the initial letter in support of Freitas, most do not want him as their AD. Signing, was for fear of retribution!

    The state of UH Athletics right now, is grim, oh, so grim.

    Sad isn’t it?

  321. Whitney October 2, 2012 9:07 pm

    Outstanding post, I think website owners should learn a lot from this weblog its rattling user genial. So much fantastic info on here :D.

  322. RedZone October 2, 2012 9:28 pm

    I have trouble believing what Apple said about coaches stepping down. How many coaches? Why didn’t they step down when JD was the AD? Apple talks about transparency but did not give out any names as to who he talked to.

  323. RedZone October 2, 2012 9:32 pm

    And what happens if the coaches are not happy with the new AD?

  324. obachan October 2, 2012 9:39 pm

    @321 mahalo for the inside insight – sad and evil at the same time

  325. madeinhawaii October 2, 2012 9:49 pm

    I seriously doubt the coaches would step down.. not the successful ones. Their legacy is here and they are the lifers. The others? Maybe, but really? Who are they? Not the Wahine Softball, Mens BB?, Certainly wasn’t football prior to Chow… so whom? Chow? Chow already has that much clout? Why would that be, unless getting the nod from MRC gave him that clout. In that case, it doesn’t reflect well on him.

  326. cocobean October 2, 2012 9:56 pm

    #321. Are you an athletic insider? You must have close relations with half the coaches for them to confide such sensitive information. I remember a coach in a non revenue sport comment in the orginal article about the petition saying something like he/she signed becuase everyone else had signed. The article didn’t mention anything about retribution unless you read between the lines.

    Did they have anything to say about JD or the state of UH athletics?

  329. Chicken Grease October 2, 2012 11:53 pm

    Let’s end this day with what Wonder’s own reaction might be regarding these proceedings . . . he would probably react by saying that the answers are blowin’ in the wind.

    Click on above Grease’s name to see a vid’ of Wonder performing a LIVE version of that Dylan tune. Song a bit relevant to these two past proceedings. AND this video got EVERTHING, ha ha ha:

    1) Japanese language subtitles for some reason[!]

    2) Wonder’s seemingly obligatory preaching (and lengthy at that! [!]) before singing a “deep” song (this buggah goes into how he first sang this cover in 1966, then he goes into your vote [yes, your vote] for president)

    3) Even got him rocking that harmonica!

    The answers we seek of this Stevie Blunder(buss) . . . are blowin’ in the wind.

    How many roads must a man walk down before he can answer a question on his own?

    Good night, fine people.

  337. Pauoa Boy October 3, 2012 5:36 am

    Looking for a big improvement in the defense against SDSU. Why Coach K changed up the defense that was working so well against the run in the first two games is beyond me. I know they want to expand more of the defensive playbook but stick to what works Coach. Besides why only now would we figure out about moving our players to their strengths on the defense??? I mean you had a clue what you had from the previous season and camps. Art Laurel is a beast at getting into the backfield, why was he moved in the first place??? T.J. Taimatuia is long and rangy and more suited as an outside LB. I would also put Justin Vele back at linebacker where he was a beast at Farrington. Anyways, I just hope the defense can bring our run stopping back to some respectability, it makes everything easier for the rest of the defense. Definitely could help out the secondary who can focus more on their man coverages vice having to chase running backs breaking through to the second and third levels of the D. I think if they play within themselves this week and execute, we will see a nice win to get back on track. Just hope Schroeder and the offense can get it going too, need to start scoring some much needed TD’s to gain some confidence back! After a feeling out in the first half, I believe our boys will dig down and pull out a win to get back on track.
