Satele expected to miss 2009 season

Middle linebacker Brashton Satele said he will undergo surgery next week in Los Angeles after being diagnosed with a torn labrum and a fractured rotator cuff in his left shoulder. Satele has a strong case for a medical hardship that would allow him to play as a sixth-year senior in 2010.

Kenny Estes, who had been practicing as the No. 1 left safety for more than a week, will undergo tests  to determine the cause of the pain in his right shoulder.

Wahine volleyball coach Dave Shoji and outside hitter Kanani Danielson are today’s guests on the Warrior Beat Show, which will start at about 12:30 p.m.

    still up, but ready to go to bed

  3. whitey August 18, 2009 12:08 am

    Brashton motivated himself to get ready for his sr yr, but somehow it seems that his shoulder or upper body has not recovered from past injuries. my best to him and hopefully he can find a solution that will correct this problem.

    top five. didn’t expect grandpa to have the energy to be up for a new post.

  5. PowderPuff August 18, 2009 12:16 am

    Really sad news about Satele. Hopefully he can get that medical hardship and return strong next year. Wish him the best with his surgery and recovery.

    Grandpa is still at work. He’s about to leave.
    Grandpa needs to stop speaking in the third person.

  7. Ralph August 18, 2009 12:19 am

    a few major injuries to start summer practice, hopefully that’s the last of it. Probable reason why June never let that go all out and hit each other, especially when the team needs to develop depth on the defense. Lots of players with potential but they need the PT to develop but injury will slow a few. Bring back the big bag, I don’t think we had any should injuries hitting the bag. Brashton, Kenny, PaiPai, and who else limited by should injuries.

  8. Hiya and nitey nite.

    Rapid and complete healing, Brashton!

  9. C’mon, Kenny!!! Please let it be nothing serious!!!

  10. Went back and looked at the $$$raiser… got the scoops, thanks, bhf2!

    btw- please remember the ohana of Lauren Kagawa in your prayers… her mom lives in our neighborhood and her younger sister is a classmate of my #2 son.

    Washington Examiner article about Colt’s progress with the Redskins

    The taming of the Colt
    Brennan impresses coaches with strides made from last season…

  16. oxtail soup August 18, 2009 1:53 am

    Dunno if this one was posted already; article on Colt on the Redskins’ site…

    “As the Washington Redskins prepare for the regular season, there are three certainties: Jason Campbell is the starting quarterback, Mike Williams is the largest human being this side of the Beltway, and Colt Brennan has been dubbed by some Redskins faithful (lovingly called the “Cult of Colt”) as the next coming of Sammy Baugh.

    In fact, Brennan is such a fan favorite that if the typical Redskins fan were a 14-year-old girl, he would be a Jonas brother. Judging from his various outbreaks into song around the practice facility, he may just be the fifth Jo-bro, albeit a hip-hop loving more down-to-earth version.”

  17. Garret August 18, 2009 4:00 am

    Condolences to Brashton. I hope that his surgery goes well and that he’ll be fully healthy and in great shape for next season.

  18. Garret August 18, 2009 4:03 am

    This article has a lot of information about Central Arkansas. They sure are trying hard to get ready for their season opener against the Warriors…95-play scrimmage on Sunday! The transfer QB that was projected to start for Central Arkansas seems like he’ll miss all the practices leading up to the UH game, so the Park will probably start at QB.

    After reviewing the video from Sunday night’s 95-play scrimmage, University of Central Arkansas football coach Clint Conque saw several bright spots.

    True freshman Wynrick Smothers, whom the UCA coaches plan to redshirt, got all the work with the second team as sophomore transfer Nathan Dick was held out because of a triceps strain on his throwing arm. Smothers will continue to work with the second team as Dick will miss live action for another 10 days to two weeks, Conque said.

  19. Garret August 18, 2009 4:09 am

    I didn’t realize that UNLV’s President has some ties to UH.

    He was the chief academic officer at Hawaii, where he befriended football coach June Jones and basketball coach Riley Wallace.

    Smatresk (pronounced SMAT-resk) left for UNLV, where former president David Ashley hired him as executive vice president and provost, before Hawaii’s football team went undefeated in the 2007 regular season.

  20. Stretch August 18, 2009 4:34 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Best wishes to Brashton for a full recovery. I would expect him to get the 6th year if he petitions for it.

    I hope that Kenny’s MRI shows nothing major and he is able to get back on to the field. Injuries are part of the game but they sure suck.

  21. rage777 August 18, 2009 5:10 am

    Morning Tsaikos.

    Brashton, I hope you have a quick and full recovery. Take it easy and come back strong next year.

    Adrian Klemm got hired as SMU’s Oline coach, following da passing of Gaenz. thought this would fire up somebody. 😀

    By gokamoto Warrior Quotes

    “Trivia question: who was the New England Patriots’ first draft pick in the 2000 NFL Draft? Answer: new SMU offensive line coach Adrian Klemm. Sure, the Patriots also grabbed some quarterback from Michigan named Tom Brady that year, but that wasn’t until the sixth round. With no first-round pick, New England used its second-round selection (46th overall) on Klemm. Brady was chosen 156 picks later.

    Klemm played two years with the Green Bay Packers after winning three Super Bowl rings in five seasons with the New England Patriots.
    Klemm played five seasons with the Patriots, collecting three Super Bowl rings in the process. He then played a couple of seasons with the Green Bay Packers, and signed with the Oakland Raiders in 2007 before retiring because of the cumulative effect of numerous injuries.”

    About the year he spent as a volunteer at SMU, Klemm said:
    “I came out to visit Coach Jones and some of the coaches, and then I just ended up staying a little longer than I expected. I really enjoyed myself, I enjoyed the environment. I’d been away from football — I hadn’t watched it on TV or anything. In terms of watching NFL games, I don’t watch it the same way as a regular fan. I look at line play and things like that, and it makes it less enjoyable. But when I came here, I was back in the mix — I just really enjoyed it. I was going to come and (be a) G.A. (graduate assistant) this year, and instead I got the opportunity to be the offensive line coach.”

    About how he quickly learned he could trust JJ in the year he played for him, Klemm said: “He creates such a great work environment. It’s a family atmosphere, and he makes everybody feel really comfortable. You always know where you stand — he’s just a really loyal individual. He hasn’t changed at all. He was just like that when he first came in (to Hawaii). At Hawaii, I had three head coaches, five offensive coordinators and I think offensive line coaches. So when he first came in, he was my third head coach, and I really didn’t buy into it initially, but after a couple of weeks … you can’t help but buy into it. He’s just such a good guy. I really trusted him, and obviously he helped out my career tremendously. I was one of the higher draft picks come out of (Hawaii) recently, and a lot of that is attributed to June, and the system that he brought and the different things that he taught me — how to carry myself, and things of that nature. So I owe a lot to him, in terms of my success.”

    About how he learned a lot from Dennis McKnight during the year that McKnight was a coach in Hawaii while he played there (JJ hired McKnight as part of his first coaching staff at UH) “Mac (McKnight) was doing what I was doing last year, helping out with the offensive line. We were talking about it two or three weeks ago. I guess, when you’re a kid, you sometimes don’t tell adults how much of an impact they have on some things. He’d talk about certain things he did when he was a player, like when he’d watch film, and on every single play, he’d write down what his opponent would do, with the down and distance, and things like that. That’s something I took from him, and the other tackle took from him … there were four or five of us who went to the NFL from that offensive line, and we all did the same thing, but we just never said anything to him about it.

    Then, when it came to lifting — we didn’t have a strong lifting program — and we used to lift with him. You talking about training with the insane — you think he’s wired now? Imagine what he was like 10 years ago. He had the long, flowing hair, the handlebar moustache, he was in great shape. We all emulated things he said he did throughout his career and we watched some film on him. We had a really good offensive line coach, Mike Cavanaugh, who’s the offensive line coach at Oregon State now. Those are the three that had the biggest influence on me before I got to the NFL: June, Mac and Mike.” (PF)

    About transitioning from playing to coaching, Klemm said:
    “One of my former coaches told me that the biggest transition will be articulating what you want the players to do, because not everybody has the same abilities that you may have, or had, or that you would expect them to have. So you have to articulate in a way that they can understand, and you have to make it clear enough that different people with different skill levels can apply it. It’s one of the things I expect — I expect them to work hard in the things that I ask them to do. Not everyone is going to be the same caliber of player, so I had to learn patience and teaching. That’s my big thing. I’m not a yeller, I don’t get all over guys. My thing is I want to teach, and I want them to rep enough that whether it’s from technique or plays, that it becomes ‘unconscious competence.’” (PF)

    About how he won’t change much from what McKnight taught the OL last year, Klemm said:
    “Scheme-wise, nothing really changes. That’s pretty much Coach Jones’ deal. There are a number of things that are the same as when I was playing.”

    “Klemm has the benefit of having played in Jones’ system that teaches linemen to block out of a two-point stance in Jones’ pass-heavy offensive attack. His background as a player also gives him the versatility to teach every position across the line, having played four of the five in college and in the NFL.”

    About how he played 4 of the OL positions and can teach them all, Klemm said: “I feel comfortable teaching every position on the line. I played everything except center in New England, and even played all four positions in one game. In Green Bay, I played primarily guard, and played tackle in one game when our left tackle went down. Other than snapping the ball — that’s the only thing that’s really different. Other than snapping the ball, they have a lot of the same responsibilities as the guards.”

    About how he gets game film from his friends in the NFL to try to pick up new techniques or schemes that he can use, Klemm said:
    “I still have a lot of friends who are playing now, and ask them for game film,” he said. “Just yesterday, I brought in four films from New England, and (running backs) Coach (Wes) Suan and I sat down and looked at their outside zone scheme — not so much what they do, schematically, but how they go about doing it, technique-wise, and seeing if we want to tweak anything and apply what they do to what we do. So I talk to guys like Coach Cav — or I have another friend who’s coaching in Baltimore — so I can reinforce to the guys that ‘these guys are at the highest level, and they’re doing the same techniques that we’re telling you to do.’”

    About how their OL is young and need to drill until they can just react to situations, Klemm said:
    “It’s a young line. The offense, initially, is complicated, but once you grasp it and once you get it down … like I said before, that’s where it becomes ‘unconscious competence,’ where you don’t have to sit there and think — you just react. That’s when everything starts clicking and starts looking real good. It’s one of those things where you keep drilling, and keep repeating things over again, teaching off the film, and once they get it, it will be really clean.”

    About how he played as a Freshman and he will play the best players they have regardless of seniority, Klemm said:
    “It’s a mixture of young guys, but we obviously have some young guys who will be competing for spots. But some of these guys can come in and mature, and can possibly help us this year. We just need to get some depth, and they need to push each other, and we’ll get better that way. I played as a freshman. If that’s our best option, and they’re mentally tough enough to handle the rigors of a full season, then I don’t have any problem with putting them in there. I don’t believe in a seniority thing, or anything like that. The best players play.”

    Note: “One of Klemm’s strengths as a player was the power of his punching; not coincidentally, that’s an area on which he said the Ponies’ offensive linemen will focus intently.”

    About how their OL will be aggressive even while pass blocking, Klemm said: “My goal for us is reestablishing the line of scrimmage — not that we didn’t before, but as these guys get bigger and stronger and more comfortable in the system, we can take it even further. If we start on the 24-yard line, we’re going to try to move the line of scrimmage to the 26- or 27-yard line — just move the entire line. My philosophy is that there’s nothing passive about our passing game. We’re going to be really aggressive, and just because we’re passing the ball doesn’t mean we can’t take the aggressiveness and physical nature of the running game and apply it to the passing game.”

    Not concerned about the weight of their OL, but more how what type of weight they are carrying, Klemm said:
    “I don’t care what their weight is. What I care about is their body composition. I don’t want a bunch of fat slobs. I don’t want extra weight — bad weight. What I prefer, and what I’ve told them that I want, is guys that are leaner, and I’m not so concerned with them being 275 or 265. If a guy like (right tackle) can be 300, and be lean and be explosive and move his body well, then I’m fine with that.”

    Expecting their OL to be better than last year because of their experience in the system, Klemm said: “I expect them to perform better than they did last year — not necessarily because of me, but just because they’ve gone through it already, and they’re a year older and stronger. Even though we had a couple of seniors last year, it was a very young line — in a way, they were all freshmen, because none of them had blocked in this system before — and Coach McKnight really laid the foundation for what we do. They have a year under their belts, so they’re not being introduced to the offense, so a lot of things they learned last year should carry over, and they can learn from their mistakes. The greatest advantage we have is that they’re not seeing it for the first time. When the live bullets are flying out there, it’s going to be things that they’ve seen.

    I’m real big on mental toughness, and I think that with maturity and mental toughness, they’ll get better. We want to go out there and impose our will on every single play, and I think the guys are ready to do that — they’re buying into that. I’m excited to see them when we put pads on. Everyone can look good in shorts, but I’m excited to see them put pads on and see how they perform, and I’m excited about what’s ahead.”

  39. whitey August 18, 2009 7:05 am

    QUESTIONS for Coach Shoji: The last 3 yrs, the Wahines have had the most predictable offense and put most their marbles into 1 player, are we going to see the same pattern of one player offense or are you going to have an offense which involves the entire front line?

    My best to the Wahines and would love to see them go all the way!!!!!

    Central Arkansas Bear’s head coach Clint Conque returns 16 starters (9 on D) and 48 lettermen on a team that went 10-2 and #1 in the Southland Conference, with a final #12 ranking in the FCS.
    “Our guys showed a real commitment this summer, with all but one player working out in Conway in our strength and conditioning program. We think that dedication to what we are doing here at UCA will carry over once practice starts.”

    Yesterday the Bears rumbled in their first scrimmage to prepare for Hawaii.
    “…. we had an altercation in practice with two veteran players and that’s unacceptable. I ejected both of the players and that’s what happens”.
    For a Sunday night scrimmage that was missing 10 players for a variety of reasons, there was still enough to please University of Central Arkansas head coach Clint Conque after a review of the tape.
    “There were some things that were really, really good….” said Conque.
    The Bears returned to the practice field Monday afternoon after the coaching staff canceled the morning practice following the late scrimmage.
    Nathan Dick, 6’4″ Soph transfer from Arkansas is making a bid to start at QB.
    The Bears have transfer players from SEC teams including Mississippi and Mississippi State as well as Tulsa and several from the WAC.
    The Bears are less than three weeks away from their 2009 season opener at Hawaii on Sept. 4.
    “The calendar’s turning,” Conque said.
    “That game is getting closer and closer and we’re not ready, by any stretch, to play a team like Hawaii. We have to continue to work and get some guys back on the practice field. We’re in the dog days of camp and we just have to work through the aches and pains.”

    Lol. Warriors can say the same….Amen to that.

    Aloha this morning,
    Paypal is not an option that we may use at UH.
    I understand the hesitancy to leave a paper trail.

    Na Koa is just getting a meeting together with web design and UHF techs to make accept on-line donations and membership payments happen. This meeting should have happened 10 years ago. But the good news is we are moving into the modern era, perhaps PayPal will be next. I will bring it up tomorrow at the meeting.
    I value your comments and suggestions to make us better.

    Great synopsis ST at the Quarterback Club yesterday.

    Is it appropriate to post the Na Koa Monday lunch schedule at the Willows with Coach M on this site??

  81. haka August 18, 2009 9:29 am

    Coach Dave,
    Offensively, it appears we have a lot of options, but is Amber the key this year? I think her track success and training is going to pay big dividends this year.

    Mahalo and Go Wahine!

  82. warriorfanny2 August 18, 2009 9:31 am

    As i mentioned, our DTs will set the tone for our D.
    MAC talks about a 2.0 rotation at this position, but realistically he needs 5. The progress of Haku and Hanohano is key….and good health for the first three.
    We are inexperienced in every other position.
    Until we start banging 11 on 11, our secondary is still unknown and untested.
    7 on 7 performances are encouraging as far as closing and swarm but is not the true lithmus for alignment and pursuit against run blocking.

    Make no mistake, oppenents will run at our D.

    We need to be concerned about O gametime communication with Gordie Shaw the only veteran coach on the field (if we assume Ron Lee will continue spoting from the booth) but new to this regime’s system.
    Im not getting into it on this blog, but suffice to say, we need improvement over last year.
    It’s MAC’s to manage or mismanage.

    As far as Oline development is concerned, we should be looking for progress, not miracles. It’s still too early, but Shaw has already demonstrated command of his unit and there have been positive changes he has made that is encouraging.
    I believe there is chemistry but we are still dealing with the same personnel. Gordie needs help from key players.
    If big John steps up in a leadership role, which Shaw is depending, it could be positive. Talent and leadership dont always ride in tandem.
    This week will be crucial as the coaches turn up the intensity and put-in-place their schemes for opening day.
    Player IQ will factor-in this season as our 3-game road trip will present severe adversity and challenges.

    It’s also good to see application to detail on our STs–in every transition and phase.
    Something we have lacked in the past.
    Dotting the “I’s n T’s” is a lesson in coaching.
    It’s just a matter of persistency (which Tormey has)chemistry and player attitude in execution.

  83. koakane™ August 18, 2009 9:34 am

    Stretch: what’s wrong with asking?? I was not able to attend practice so would like to get reports of how things are going from people who are able to make it.

    UH feature on the DL. I love this feature by UH and think that the person doing it is doing a good job…though they should double-check names (Miranda instead of Aranda).

    To rebuild the defensive line this season, defensive line coach Dave Aranda is taking a fairly young unit and stressing basics and fundamentals.

    “It’s going to be a slow process and it’s going to take the full length of camp,” Aranda said. “We’re taking good steps. We just have young guys that haven’t really seen playing time before. Anytime you have that, whether you’re drilling a certain technique or showing a technique on the board, the only way to truly learn is to practice it.”

    “Our defense is centered around a five-man zone dog pass rush,” Miranda said. “I look back on the success we had last year on defense and when we did have success it was with a four-man pass rush, so we want to repeat that again. I’ve been seeing Tufaga step up, I’m seeing good things from Rocky. He hasn’t played in a long time but he’s making steady improvements.”

  88. jm2375 August 18, 2009 10:14 am

    A quick break from screen repair — last major job of the summer!!! Yahoo!!!

  103. Bulla August 18, 2009 11:22 am

    #82 wf2,

    i agree, that the opposition will run right at our DT’s because if we can’t stop the ‘run up the gut’ and they can get 3-4 yds a play, it’s over. they’ll march down our throats on every possession, just basic smash mouth football. in years past, we have seen this occur against the ‘name’ teams that have played us, and usually in the 3rd and 4th quarters, where fatigue and personnel challenges have set in.

    some alignments will require the DT’s to hold the gap, or the point, and rely on the LB’s to make the plays. other alignments will release the DT’s if they are fast enough and strong enough, to go vertical and create chaos in the backfield. speed + power is a deadly combination, because with that penetration, the DT has now ‘upset’ the rhythm of the play, the sequence and/or timing of the play….and has cut the width of the field dramatically. BUT, you need speed + power + technique to get past the O line….and that is what makes it exciting.

    either way, our D is going to have to ‘bring it’ on every play and establish supremacy in the trenches to stop the wenches…ok, just had to throw that in….sorry to all the girlie boys out there, haha..

    have a great Tuesday everyone….

  104. wafan August 18, 2009 11:24 am

    what’s a “zone dog pass rush”?

    Basically JM it means exactly what it says, the defensive line is responsible for rushing the qarterback while we play zone with the defensive backfield. In the meantime everyone on D barks like dogs to distract the quarterback getting him to lose his focus. Works will well if excecuted properly. Arf, arf, arf, arf.

  107. Bulla August 18, 2009 11:30 am


    whew, where would i be without you, that info is so critical to understand what we’re doing. that’s why when the LB’s call Cowboy, i love seeing them trying to lasso the RB’s….and when I hear Bulldog, all the Kaimuki alumni do a high five. this is an easy D to understand, just have to know the english language 🙂

  109. royal crown August 18, 2009 11:37 am


    From the article we learned that the Central Arkansas team had a Sunday scrimmage at what time? Night. And why? To simulate game like condition when they play the Warriors in the evening game.

    To me this sounds like smart and sound coaching to replicate game like conditions for his Central Arkansas team and players.

    Other coaches around the country do likewise. That is to acclimate the players to as close to real time game conditions as possible. If it’s in the heat of the afternoon they practice in the afternoon. If it’s an upcoming night game they practice at night. In both instances it’s getting the players used to the heat of the afternoon or the evening’s bright lights of the stadium.

    Two teams, also I’ve read, where they, too, practice at night-Boise and Washington. In fact for Washington as they are looking at their first game with LSU in a night game, their second practices of two a days starts at 645 p.m as to get the team acclimated to game like conditions.

    Boise, I’ve read, not only do they practice as close to acclimating the players to game like conditions, like practicing at night, they also bring in piped/taped stadium noise(fan cheering) so that the their offense and defense practices under these conditions, too.

    UH, so far, presumably, is gearing up with their game with Central Arkansas by looking at the opponent’s films. And having the scout team replicating the other team’s offense and defense in prep work. Hmm.

    But is this enough? Wouldn’t UH’s coaches want their players under the stadium lights, too, scrimmaging, getting their timing down, fielding punts, kickoffs, having the receivers catching passes and allowing all the players in general getting used to a different elements and conditions?

    How I see it I wish they would.

    It is not a coincidence we’re seeing the WR dropping passes earlier on in the season and where the players are showing a drop in energy by evening game times for the reasons are obvious– because of not being used to the bright lights and that their body clocks are attuned to early morning practices, which is also defeating, too IMO.

    Some coaches incorporate their planning and preparations with the mindset of that of an Army General. And this leadership is noticeable, like how I exalted the Central Arkansas coach for scrimmaging under the lights. For his team he’s making use of every opportunity to win, which is smart and sound coaching. For UH, from what I’ve seen with an absence of night practices, let alone scrimmages…they’re leaving everything up to chance. Not good.

  110. al August 18, 2009 11:56 am

    i do agree with wf2 that our game day field management needs to improve.

  111. Ralph August 18, 2009 11:58 am

    coach Shoji
    what does Mafua bring to the court that Brandt is lacking to give her the nod as the starting setter. Last season her offense was predictable-set Houston on the left or Houston from the back row, and when she wasn’t an option Herring to the left. Couldn’t Brandt have done the same, she seems like a better server and back row player than Mafua, if so, why not start her.

  112. wafan August 18, 2009 11:59 am

    6:45pm in the PNW at this time of year is hardly a night practice. Sun sets around 9pm.

    Bulla, good observations and as I mentioned yesterday, the BIG SIX on Hawaii’s schedule ALL averaged close to 5 ypr. in 2008 and will be every bit as good, if not better, in 2009.
    Its no secret that our DEs are tweeners and suspect holding ground against 300+ OLM.
    Last year’s FSU game highlighted some mismatches in straight-hand-to-hand push.
    We may get away with a few zone blitzes off the edge but unless our CBs properly man and our safeties are in position to close quickly, for the most part we will give away generous running lanes for big gainers. Not uncommon for our D given its philosophy and set-up and especially if our LBs are slow to the gaps n crushed in the blocking stampede.
    We didnt have the player personnel last year and it would surprise me this year….other than Coach Tormey, we have the same coaches. Some think that one year could make the difference in their learning curve and that has merit…but again, MAC cites three JUCO DBs that he feels will make mega-impact. While that may also be true, JUCOs players have experienced simple basic ball on D and so their IQ must also be measured and their learning curve configured as much as their 40-time and verticality.
    Im looking for progress on-the-job from our secondary as we play into the season more than immediate impact.
    If it comes immediately–no one will need to say so–it will be that obvious!

  138. Derek August 18, 2009 3:31 pm

    Hawaii better not take Central Arkansas lightly. Remember Portland State? Remember Texas A & I? If you forgot, Texas A & I – 43, UH – 0 in the first game ever at Aloha Stadium in 1975. Up til now, Central Arkansas is most famous for being the school that Scottie Pippen went to. UCA has a very good record. The caliber of players that they have are excellent. All we need to remember recently is Appalacian St. went on the road to Michigan in the first game of the season and won. Hopefully, Mack and the coaches will make sure the players have their attention.

    P.S. Yang beat Tiger who was supposed to be invincible w/ a lead in the final round. You gotta give it to the South Korean. He’s a fighter, not fazed w/ the gallery (maybe he doesn’t speak or understand English so it doesn’t bother him), and it doesn’t hurt to eat a lot of Kim Chee. I give him a lot of credit and he played super. He won it, Tiger did not lose it.
    He played the steadiest.

  139. Kekoa August 18, 2009 3:53 pm

    Football talent it what it is, but what you do with it is just as important, as is the case with Boise State.

    In recent years, UH’s defensive schemes are predictable. It would be better to use more schemes and more guys. I’d like to see some 5 man fronts from time to time, especially with quick linebackers and corners and safeties.

    One of the many articles about Ryan Mouton’s injury.

    It was a dreary day on the practice field, and that was before Titans cornerback Ryan Mouton went down with an ankle injury. Mouton’s left ankle injury silenced the fans that did show up in the rain. He was carted to the dressing room after trainers looked at him on the field.

    It didn’t look good, although there were initial indications the injury is a sprain that won’t require surgery. Still, it could keep him out a while.

    It’s a shame because the rookie from Hawaii was having a great camp. He was injured while defending receiver Phillip Morris in 1-on-1 drills. He immediately reached for his ankle, and looked extremely disappointed as he was carted off. A few fans clapped. Coach Jeff Fisher later said the extent of the injury was still to be determined.

    Update on Mouton’s injury…glad it isn’t as bad as they were worried it was.

    Rookie cornerback Ryan Mouton, who was carted of the field in Tuesday’s morning practice session, was diagnosed with a significant ankle sprain.

    “We are going to get him back as soon as we can. We are going to have to treat it aggressively,” Fisher said. “There was some fear that there may have been a fracture involved but there wasn’t.”

  157. Garret August 18, 2009 8:02 pm


    I agree with you about the merger…a lot of people will be out of jobs when they cut their workforce. If they are going to show the same show on multiple networks, that does save money…but it means that a lot of people won’t be needed.

    It is good that Hawaii’s climate is much more mild than the south…those pills that are used to monitor athlete’s health are expensive! $35 per player per day!

    Every day, between 12 and 24 Longhorns players deemed high-risk for heat-related illnesses take a pill that allows Boyd and other Texas trainers to track their core body temperature by pressing a button.

    The silicone-coated CorTemp capsule — which is the size of a vitamin and contains batteries, thermometers and radio transmitters — is swallowed about five hours before practice begins. During that time, the pill makes its way to the player’s intestines. Once there, it keeps a constant reading of the player’s temperature before the pill is passed naturally.

    The pills have been used by other teams as well, including the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars at the pro level and Nebraska and North Carolina in college.

    At $35 a pill, it’s too expensive for the entire team to use daily. While the pills are reusable, the Longhorns choose to use the pills only once, for health concerns.

    “We do an individual physical/study of each player at the beginning of the season when they check in and determine which players are the most vulnerable to the heat,” Boyd said.

    a most excellent suggestion to you both. got dis flash today at lunch, while i wuz burpin.
    take volunteer help from some retired Tsaikos. one in particular got the education and credentials to help the compliance person BIG TIME.
    da bonus is this particular volunteer get super Excel Spreadsheet Skills. and dis volunteer wants to help.

    if wuz me, i’d scoop da volunteer in a heartbeat. den my guess is you’re likely to avoid future make A kine – neva know dat wuz coming kine crack to da head.

    limit da volunteer hours, make em hungry, wanna show you she knows how to work da spreadsheets, for tracking recruits, getting medicals, etc. dis lady can teach da compliance lady, an vice versa. pretty soon, you’d be tryin for steal her for yoselfs.

    no trust me. ask ST. plus, dis lady get BRAINS! and she lives close by. an… she no need gas fo go to her volunteerism. walk to work. 😀
    honest. 😀

    Regarding the Central Arkansas discussion for #59, I don’t understand how the Arkansas transfer at QB could be making a push to start when he had to sit out the scrimmage due to injury and he’ll have to sit out basically their entire fall camp…he’s projected to be back from injury sometime between August 26 and September 1. If he can’t practice or scrimmage, how is he making a push to start?

    This simplifies things as the Warrior coaches can scout Robbie Park. This is his fourth season at Central Arkansas–he was a backup to their star QB the past years, so you can see below that he had a lot of did not plays in their boxscores.

    don’t think that coaches are taking CAU lightly. not build on Notre Dame.

  168. Garret August 18, 2009 8:35 pm

    It looks like Central Arkansas is shifting from a primarily passing team into a run-oriented team. They will use all types of formations and this will be a good test of the Warrior D. The strength of their D is their DL, so that will be a good test for the Warrior OL.

    A. For the first time in four years, the Bears will have a new starting quarterback. Nathan Brown, the most prolific and one of the most successful quarterbacks in state history, is gone.

    B. The strength of this UCA team, at least in the early stages, will be a defense that is fast and deep.

    C. Special teams have a chance to be among the best in school history.

    D. Experienced backs Brent Grimes and Leonard Ceaser have had exceptional preseason camps and are among the leaders on the offensive unit.

    E. The Bears are developing a nice stable of running backs behind Grimes and Ceaser.

    F. In early preseason camp, the offensive line was more effective at run blocking than pass blocking.

    UCA has fielded one of the best defenses in the Southland Conference the past couple of years. In recent years, Conque has placed some of his best athletes on defense. In recruiting, his coaches have placed a premium on recruiting players who will give his defense the look of the good SEC defenses — power, athleticism and speed.

    In no way is Conque abandoning his basic philosophy. But he’s also developing a team that can have quite a knockout punch with the left hand. And he’s ready to use it this year.

    This UCA team may be pretty good at playing old-fashioned, smash-mouth field position football.

    “We can play a bunch of different-type football games,” said quarterback Robbie Park. “You’ll see us in one-back, two backs, three-wide, four-wide and five-wide, whatever we have to do. The running game can open up the passing game and the passing game can open up the running game. They go hand-in-hand.

    With it now 17 days away from kickoff all football fans are waiting to see if what Coach Mack said after last season’s football game that he’ll be looking at what needs to be fixed will come to fruition.

    A sampling of posts of what I’ve read today confirms that UH needed to improve in areas, like the O-Line,D-Line, game day preparation, on the field preparations and special teams.

    And I agree. And I agree that the team is working diligently on improving in these areas in spring ball and fall camp.

    Coach had even brought in new coaches displacing ones that were inept as a way in getting better.

    But you know something when you listen to a sage coach, one that’s been there, they always say it always gets down to which team executes and which team is fundamentally sound.

    Boise State epitomizes this.

    But what gets me, on paper, for example, UH is bigger than Boise State. And maybe with biases I’d even say if we put the UH players in a cage fight with the Boise State players and UH would win…because I think the UH players are tougher. And if you want to get into a track race or lifting contest I’d bet UH would hold it’s own there, too.

    But what separates UH from the teams that are higher echelon teams, like a Boise State, is that they’re fundamentally sound whereas UH lags far behind.

    And this is the one glaring area, where if Coach Mack looked at last year’s game films he’d notice this that the Warriors are fundamentally deficient.

    And where there should be a strong foundation to build on–like having the right way of doing things as his mantra.

    And I hope that he has fixed it for this year… like he said he would.

    Five things IMO should have been addressed if UH is to see successes this year. All are fundamentals.

    1. Improvement in tackling. Stop the arm tackling. Wrap the arms around and aim lower instead of tackling so high. A good reason as to why 16 plays of 40 yards or longer were because of poor tackling resulting in mis-tackling.
    2. On the field discipline. It’s one thing being aggressive and incurring a penalty, like being off side. But the stupid ones, like the retaliation penalties are inexcusable.
    3. Players not remembering their assignments. Again inexcusable. A DB playing zone when he should be in man or WR running the wrong route reflect on players not thinking. And it can cost the team a W. And if I were the coach I’d keep harping on this to get this point across.
    4. On offense UH tips off their plays. They have to have a better poker face, and disguise what play they are going to run. The opposing defense can see these subtleties in the UH offense and can detect a running play or pass. Smart defense and players can read the body language of the QB, OL and make reads from this and the audibles. UH handicaps itself too much if the opposition knows what to expect.
    5. Likewise on defense UH tips off it’s plays, especially when the opposition can recognize when UH is bringing the house. And where good fundamentally sound defenses would be camouflaging what their doing… UH defense is too predictable.

    When I look at the upcoming football year I want to applaud the team for making the off season improvements. I want to see everything coming into focus. I want to watch games, and feel my hands aching from clapping so hard.

    And to see the transformation in Coach Mack’s coaching from last year to this year because that will be the key, especially if he can induce his troops into playing sound fundamental football.

    Popular villains of the non-AQs

    August 17, 2009 9:20 AM

    Posted by’s Graham Watson

    Throughout the years there have been many people, teams, games and situations that have continued to hold the non-AQs down. From Chicken Soup to Garret Gabriel to the NCAA, the non-AQs have been done wrong throughout history.

    Below is a sampling of the more popular villains, but there are many more out there. Take some time to think about it and feel free to send some other villains of teams either listed or not listed here to my mailbag.

    Utah Utes
    Current villain: The BCS. Utah finished as the only undefeated team in 2008 yet was denied a shot at the national title.
    All-time villain: BYU. There are few rivalries more heated than the one between the Utes and Cougars.

    Brigham Young Cougars
    Current villain: Utah. Yes, BYU has a national championship, but lately Utah’s two BCS bowl wins make it top dog in the state.
    All-time villain: Garrett Gabriel. In 1990, while BYU was ranked No. 4 and Ty Detmer won the Heisman, Gabriel led Hawaii to a 59-28 thrashing of the Cougars. He did the same thing to BYU the year before.

    You look at this blog 2 yrs ago, when there were posts numbering in the 600, each with diverse opinions.

    Back then it was a fun blog to read. And people wrote freely.

    Nobody was proprietary…”and thought that this was their blog”.

    Nobody was controlling of what opinions were said.

    Nobody looked down at commentary.

    Back then it was an open forum.

    And now it’s still an open forum.

    Yet, now, the hardliner Tsaikos want to make their presence known by filtering what can be said and what can’t be said…They think they can push their weight around and by being intimidating, like how they are to wf2.

    And this is obvious.

    And this the reason why this blog is suffering.

    The numbers are down and the posts are filled with fluff.

    I’m guessing the lurkers wanting to write would be scared off from writing because it may not be with the prevailing opinion of that of the tsaiko

    This isn’t healthy.

    It’s unhealthy to suppress freedom of speech within reason

    There’s nothing I see that wf2 writes that would be offending to the coach or players

    Likewise I don’t think anything I write would offend the coach or players.

    But to you BG and other tsaikos–you’re weirdness is apparent, especially you BG, for the last time you admonished me was over your perception that I was copying other peoples writing which you wouldn’t know, then, it got me angry…and the same way as I feel right know towards you to imply that wf2 are related. The only thing we have in common is that we don’t sugar coat things–

    From now on keep your snide remarks to yourself.

    RC ~ You would be totally blown away by the fact that one of the “hardliner” Tsaiko’s really is related to wf2! No big deal.

    Your perception of what others on the blog write is no different then what BG said of you.

    Like we have always said, c’mon down to a cc or a tail gate and meet the real people behind the blog names. I think if you met BG, you would think differently of him…or any of the rest of us.

    Charleston Southern is a *73* point underdog to Florida…this USA Today article discussing that spread has a nice mention of UH.

    To better understand this enormous point spread, consider Charleston Southern’s two previous forays into the land of Football Bowl Subdivision opponents. In 2007, No. 19 Hawaii pasted the Buccaneers 66-10. A year ago, unranked Miami rolled to a 52-7 win.

    On the other side, Florida’s last three FCS opponents were wiped away by scores of 70-19 (The Citadel in 2008), 49-3 (Western Kentucky in 2007) and 62-0 (Western Carolina in 2006).

    Your #139 sums everything up clearly.

    Here you give LK a big pat on her back for her #133

    For what reason?

    That she threw a spear, or barb, at wf2

    His post didn’t warrant that kind of hostility from LK

    But you were right there to back her up by saying she had every right to protect her turf (what you meant is that you wanted to get back at wf2 for last weeks verbal volleying in which he made you look like a fool).

    This is juvenile

    And then for LK to lump me together with wf2 in her #212 by inferring same smell is also juvenile

    BG in his #188 throwing a spear at me too for what reason?

    You know people see this kokea, and it doesn’t make them want to gravitate towards this blog or to you, BG or LK.

    Talk football and sports, write about it instead of throwing spears, Kokea. Or engaging in verbal volleying…but then again I can’t remember any of your post having anything of substance–which is sad, and which is beginning to being inherent to this blog.

    Like Kekoa said, you should come down to da tailgaters (or other Tsai-ko events) and meeting everybody. They’re alot of fun and pretty interesting discussion flows…

    The QB that had been expected to start for Utah this season is transferring to Nevada.

    Louks, who was bumped down to the Utes’ No. 3 quarterback last week, will transfer to Nevada, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned. The junior signal-caller did not participate in Tuesday’s scrimmage, and is presumed to be en route to Reno, where he will enroll in classes, then redshirt for the Wolf Pack.

    Louks was the only Utah quarterback with any game experience heading into the 2009 season and was presumed to be the QB candidate to beat. But he was unable to win the job outright during spring drills, then was demoted to No. 3 last week, behind true freshman Jordan Wynn and junior college transfer Terrance Cain.

    Although Brashton Satele’s season seems to be over it’s good to read that other Warriors are back practicing.

I’m speakin of Destin Stewart, fo example.

    RC ~ The invitation will always be there. The opportunity to tell me or BG, or maybe even Liz, eggsactly what’s wrinklin’ your shorts is something you shouldn’t pass up.

    It’s a lot more fun jousting with each other over a tall cool one anyway! In the end, it’s like what we used to say as kids…sticks and stones…you know the rest.

    Lighten up! Life’s too short.

    last year we wuz tryin fo get wf2 to come to a Tgate, each of us for different reasons.
    I wuz tryin fo see if he was a Warrior insider…he sure knew a lot of detailed info. Actually, it didn’t and doesn’t matter, I just wanted to thank him. da guy sure knew alot, and still does. I am thankful get guyz like him who can give me da scoops of stuffs I crave. I’ve met summa da odda crazies, and actually they are good fun. and sometimes have great info too. meanin, it takes all of us to make dis a good go, RC. if you don’t already know, you’ll find out there is good in da Tsaikos. an you don’t have to wait for anudda CB and a JJ to find dat out. spoke from a guy who bought 5 of them stupid books. 😀

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It’s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks?
