Save these dates

Here are key dates for the Warriors:

> Jan. 12 — The first day of UH’s spring semester.

> Jan. 15 — The first day teams may resume bringing in recruits. That basically allows three recruiting weekends before Feb. 4 signing day.

> Jan. 26 — The Warriors will begin their offseason conditioning program that week. The NCAA allows eight weeks for school-coordinated conditioning program. That leads to …

> March 23 — The start of UH’s spring break, which then leads to …

> March 30 — The week the Warriors begin the 15 practices of spring training. For the second consecutive year, the Warriors will spread the practices through April. In 2012 and 2013, the spring training was divided into practices ahead and after spring break.

    Aloha all. 3 prong–something for you—

  6. Old School Dave January 6, 2015 10:08 am

    Hmmm… “green” in the Oregon unis for the big game, while Ohio State is sticking with traditional colors. Hope it’s not “bachi” for the Ducks.

  7. Maddog50 January 6, 2015 10:09 am

    Tom-warriornation, I am in fact the guy that runs the”funraiser” call it that for a reason. I am currently on a barstool enjoying myself!!!! Will email you when I get home!!!

  8. Stephen Tsai January 6, 2015 10:26 am

    Maddog is a good guy. Met him several times.

  9. Stephen Tsai January 6, 2015 10:26 am

    Plus, Maddog is a former UH player.
    It’s always nice when alumni give back.

    Russell Williams 1 of 3 1st team All Americans to make it as a FR. on defense… Lets hope this guy starts day 1.

  11. boolakanaka January 6, 2015 11:02 am

    Thanks for that link Jeezy! It was interesting to read, back in my day, Mt. Sac was still a JC powerhouse, but the real big boy on the block was Pasadena CC. Not one guy on the All American list from PCC?

    It seems, back then, at least, that was an exclusive holding pen for a bunch of SC, and some UCLA players, who did not have grades out of high school or had some “legal problems” to take care of…I remember scrimmaging them and they were huge–I thought “this canʻt be a JC–cause if they are, then D1 guys must be literal monsters..”

    I think, the days I played against them, they almost 3 dozen guys, from a single squad , go D1. In fact, my old teammate Daryl Ursery (RIP big guy) went to PCC. See, the impressive list of schools that they later played for–see;

  12. boolakanaka January 6, 2015 11:08 am

    Oh, for you guys that know “Big Ben” Sesapasara, the promoter, who is on that list, Ben Sespeasara (Weber State, Utah). He is a Halawa boy–actually, his older brother Michael, was a monster, and actually had offers to SC, among others, but sole couldnʻt get the grades. He played with in HS, two guys who started at tackle in the then Pac 8, Gaylord Kuamoo and David Fonoti…and they had a hard time blocking him in high school.

    Man, with another sole named, Kosi, who actually went to CAL, and started at center, we had 3 guys who started in the Pac 8–but, we never won more than 4 games—damn, talk about unfulfilled potential???!!

  13. 3-Prong January 6, 2015 1:13 pm

    Thanks for that boo. Chip is a classy guy. I won’t be too happy though if he finds a way to get MM8 and turn the duck into an eagle. Gonna be hard for me when the conference game comes up with my ‘Boys.

    Have I said “how ’bout them Cowboys yet today?

  14. Tiki808 January 6, 2015 1:40 pm

    ditto on the information pack you’ve given.

  15. Tiki808 January 6, 2015 1:42 pm

    Because these students, as KIF students were dumber. These in report to The Garden Island blog January 6, 2015 letter. A dumb man at best. Thanks TGI.

  16. Tiki808 January 6, 2015 1:47 pm

    Discipline in this line of work, means fail to me and everyone else in OIA/ILH. I do not think KIF is worth the look. KIF is a failure. Period. Thanks again TGI.

  17. TChahng January 6, 2015 1:52 pm


    We, Na Ali’i had very talented players ’78-’80, but no talent or creativity at coaching. Coach Ray Higa couldn’t translate his success at JV to the Varsity level.

  18. PONO January 6, 2015 2:17 pm

    Go Bows

  19. Boolakanaka January 6, 2015 2:20 pm

    Talk about the rich getting richer–see UO’s rec/student center–see:

    That said, damn it’s nice….

  20. Boolakanaka January 6, 2015 2:22 pm

    Tchahng–don’t mention Higa’s name to me–getting me riled up as we speak!!!!

  21. jimmy the lock January 6, 2015 2:31 pm

    Don’t forget this date, 2/4/15.

  22. Maddog50 January 6, 2015 2:37 pm

    Steven thanks for the kind word. I just wanna win! Go Warriors!!!

  23. Andrew January 6, 2015 4:22 pm

    Not sure how much a commissioner of the DII conference makes, but I think Bob Hogue would make a great Athletic Director for UH. I’m sure it would be a step down in pay but that conference has sure thrived under his tenure.

  24. A-House January 6, 2015 8:15 pm

    Sure hope that someone in upper campus tore off the front page of the Oregon article, made many copies, and gave it to those in upper campus who do not support athletics in making the school a better, enriched experience for all students who attend UH

    should also give a copy to all legislators who believe sports is a “non-factor” for UH and the state of Hawaii.

    don’t stop there, give a copy to the HVB, hotels, transportation companies, other big and small businesses, and airlines flying to Hawaii who directly benefit from all the visitor spending

    further, give a copy to all local athletic directors/coaches with the nudge that it could be Hawaii if more “blue chip” local players stayed home

    and post as many copies on upper and lower campus for all students to read

  25. nanakuli January 6, 2015 8:37 pm

    Andrew is correct. Bob Hogue would be a great AD. He knows Hawaii, the media, the legislature and sports. He has been there and done that and understands how to fund raise in DII Hawaii.

  26. hitman January 6, 2015 11:33 pm

    aloha everyone !! oh boi we are so slow in posting jobs !! and so fast to let go coaches at times !! so far 28 days and never post the job yet!! the bad part of this is the basketball coach is starting to get notice for other how good UH basketball team is doing so far !! and he is up for grabs !! we are just lucky he loves it here and he love the player he has !!
    boi this week been slow hoping to here some football news soon !! like see what chow got cooking for this year !!

  27. Maddog50 January 7, 2015 4:02 am

    As the constant subject of funding the program continues I find a few things very interesting. A system that supports 10 campuses, 4200 faculty and some 50k total students. A billion dollar budget—-A pretty good state school with about 25k enrollment with mainly 1 campus 1200 faculty and a budget half of UH does pretty good….Northern Illinois University. Not here to debate academic standing just the economics that obviously disadvantage the Athletic dept. Athletics should be the marketing arm and calling card to attract students far and wide. Sure seems to me that an awful lot of schools have figured this out….bout time the wise Owls in upper campus figure this out. Go Warriors!!!!!

  28. PONO January 7, 2015 7:06 am

    I know its the off season but I think the blog comments are a direct reflection of the interest in the program. 30 comments in a day is not that great.

  29. A-House January 7, 2015 7:44 am

    Pono #30:

    wonder no more – just look at the dismal won loss record with a very conservative, boring offense and a HC who decided to promote grad assistants to assistant coaches who had very limited knowledge and experience

    after 3 years and the HC refuses to make significant coaching or play calling changes to improve the program and success on the field – do we honestly believe that getting better players will be the catalyst to making this a winning program? this would be a pipe dream if there is NO coaching change(s) or play calling!!!!!

    this is not, IMHO, a recipe for success

    like some very loyal and long time supporters of UH football said after the Rice game – “why are we still supporting UH football with Chow as the HC, conservative/boring plays?” like I posted before the Kauai group went from 2 full buses (that’s 120 people) to 9 on this trip – and 4 people said they might go to the Ohio St and Wisconsin games, but NOT attend the game itself

    if Chow does not get it yet, there is no hope for a better 2015!

  30. letsgowarriors January 7, 2015 7:45 am

    ^ haha seriously. how depressing. Chow should be putting stuff out in the public to at least get fans (or haters) talking about the program. there hasnt been any coaching changes this offseason, meanwhile all the other programs are out there making moves. if not changes, at least confirm the staff is returning in tact.

    havent heard a peep from Chow since the season ended.

  31. letsgowarriors January 7, 2015 7:46 am

    on top of that, Sione Kauhi and Dylan Collie signed financial aid agreements and Russell Williams signed a LOI. that gives Chow the power to speak on these kids in public. yet, crickets!

  32. Stephen Tsai January 7, 2015 8:11 am

    Interest in UH football remains fine.
    It’s not the comments — sorry, folks — but it’s the views.
    Again, this is a dead period, so nothing will happen in recruiting for a bit.
    I’m sorry if people don’t have enough material to recycle on other sites.

  33. letsgowarriors January 7, 2015 8:30 am

    didnt know making coaching changes had a dead period.

  34. Stephen Tsai January 7, 2015 8:43 am

    Things are happening. They’re just not happening on Jan. 7.

  35. Stephen Tsai January 7, 2015 8:46 am

    By the way, I screwed up.
    UH volleyball plays on Sunday, not Saturday this week.

  36. Stephen Tsai January 7, 2015 8:46 am

    This is what happens when mentally I’m in Dallas.
