Still going

No rest for the recruiters.

The Warriors have made about 25 conditional offers, including to the top prospects in the state. So far, they have received one acceptance, from Kahuku lineman John Waa.

As always, the Warriors primary need is linemen.

* * * * *

The softball team’s popularity is reflected in the TV guide. The baseball and volleyball teams are playing Friday, but Oceanic has opted to show the softball game that night.

Not sure how the areas are divided at Oceanic, but I wonder if there is a way two UH events could be shown simultaneously on the cable channels.

* * * * *

San Mateo assistant head coach Tim Tulloch said there is “no decision yet” on where lineman Fehoko Fanaika will play this coming season. It’s still between UH and LSU.

  12. Kevin March 13, 2012 9:23 am



  13. Steve March 13, 2012 9:23 am

    ST, I would think Oceanic could televise 2 UH events simultaneously, by using OC16, which is mainly devoted to high school sports. They have enough announcers to do it, if they wanted to.

  14. Couch potato March 13, 2012 9:26 am

    one acceptance is a good start. main thing is that the UH coaches have already made at least 25 offers!

    newsworthy note or is it a noteworthy news? anyway, Wahine sb moves up one to #18 in the coaches poll.

  15. mcb March 13, 2012 9:26 am

    ST – I don’t think they have the equipment and personnel to pull it off – quantity wise, not quality wise.

  16. Steve March 13, 2012 9:27 am

    Kevin, did you have any say in the color, since I have seen you only wear black, to the games. I am not criticizing you, since I normally wear black also, to the majority of the games. 😀

  17. Steve March 13, 2012 9:30 am

    mcb, I tend to differ. Oceanic does have the equipment and personnel, to pull it off. Since they have televised UH events at the same time they are televising high school events, on OC16.

  18. Couch potato March 13, 2012 9:30 am

    got equipment to broadcast 2 games simultaneously?

  19. Kevin March 13, 2012 9:31 am

    Black tonight will be in support of the softball student-athletes that are after-thoughts to those that are supposed to be supporting them.

    Black tonight will be in defiance of “static” created by a simple request from the student-athletes to their fans.

  20. Steve March 13, 2012 9:32 am

    I believe it is a contractual thing with UHAD. Not showing 2 athletic events at the same time.

  21. Steve March 13, 2012 9:33 am

    Kevin, what do you mean by, defiance?

  22. son March 13, 2012 9:38 am

    well it is good to see that we can dvr the game on thursday too.

  24. Couch potato March 13, 2012 9:52 am

    wow, dow, nasdaq, and s&p are soaring today.

    is that a sign that ff will be soaring over to Hawaii?

  25. Wes'side Warrior March 13, 2012 10:02 am

    Howzit, everyone!

    Wishing and hoping for an outstanding week for Wahine Softball!

    Met a big kid that says he tripped to Hawaii just to take the trip… think his name was something like TJ Holloman or something like that? From some Saint Something school in northern Georgia (at least north of where we live, which is kinda considered northern Georgia already). For some reason, I don’t remember hearing or reading his name of possible recruits. Or, maybe he just said it ’cause he saw my UH hat. Who knows?

    Anyways, the car is in the shop, getting some work done… so there goes the tax return.

    Can’t wait for Spring ball to start up! In the mean time…

    Go, Wahine!

  26. jkjones March 13, 2012 10:05 am

    Texas applies pressure to all phases of the game:

    Pitching, their ace Blaire Luna, will start against Hawai’i, 8-0, 0.71 ERA, 80 KOs in less than 50 innings.

    Defense, .980 fielding average, 1 error every 2 games.

    Team BA is .371 and the lady Longhorns are roadrunners on the basepaths–50/55 SBs.


    While Ricketts has been suberb, she has issued 23 free passes in 75 innings.

    She will have to bring her control.

    This Tournament will provide a suberb test for wahine post season aspirations.

    They will be facing talent, in some instances, that are US Olympic team level (Cal’s Valerie Arioto).



    Just damn good talent in this field!

  27. Kevin March 13, 2012 10:06 am


    Spring ball started February 9th. We are 21-0 and #18/19 in the country.

    Good morning Tsaikos!


    ST – have you heard from Alex Green and/or Greg Salas on how their rehabs are going? Jus’ wondering…

  31. jkjones March 13, 2012 10:15 am

    If you notice, the PAC 12 has 7 teams ahead of Hawaii in the rankings–and it will remain so, until we beat one of them. A victory over California, will shatter the glass ceiling for wahine movement towards a coveted, top 10 ranking.

  32. Da Punchbowl Kid March 13, 2012 10:19 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂

    Good. Isn’t black supposed to be slimming? 🙂

  33. Da Punchbowl Kid March 13, 2012 10:23 am

    Mr. Tsai could make a lot of money in marketing. Slimming black tee-shirts with Ricketts’ number on them for example.

  34. tom mui March 13, 2012 10:24 am

    #9 cheepono. Hope he does accept but didn’t someone say that he was not going to make a decision until April 1?

  35. rooster March 13, 2012 10:25 am

    “Black Outs” just don’t make sense to me??? Why don’t all us Warrior fans just wear Warrior Green to all games ??? Like ST said the last time a black out was called, it means the electricy goes out…

    And, btw, the peeps at UH should make a firm decision on exactly what shade of green is Warrior Green. Ridiculous how many different shades of UH green shirts there are for sale. As for our athletic teams’ nickname??? don’t get me started………………….. too confused to cheer sometimes

  36. Garret March 13, 2012 10:34 am

    Great job by the coaches in getting 25 early offers out…everyone else has gone to earlier and earlier offers so UH had to do the same. More importantly, UH needs to keep in constant contact whenever the NCAA recruiting rules allow for contact with recruits–offers without the effort to follow up with recruits is doing less than half of the job. From what I’ve heard, the coaches Coach Chow has picked will put in the hours and effort needed to do that as well or better than any other coaching staff UH has had.

  37. Warrior Dave March 13, 2012 10:35 am

    The “team” is asking everyone to wear Black. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Gee whiz!

  38. Garret March 13, 2012 10:36 am

    UTSA and UNC-Charlotte appear to be Karl Benson’s first targets for the Sun Belt’s expansion. Or, both schools could join the alliance instead of the Sun Belt. If UTSA leaves the WAC, I cannot see how the WAC will continue as a football conference. Either way, that has significant implications for UH…

    The University of Charlotte and Texas-San Antonio have had discussions with the Sun Belt and are “leading candidates” to join the league, sources told

    Charlotte and Texas-San Antonio also are among those schools that have had discussions about joining the new MWC/C-USA league.

  39. Garret March 13, 2012 10:38 am

    UH has recruiting ties to the high school that this QB plays for. He missed most of a season to get his U.S. citizenship, but it sounds like he’ll be a special recruit and UH could use a QB like this.

    Dillman is originally from Sweden and came to La Mirada in late July prior to his freshman campaign. His tourist visa was set to expire, so the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder was forced to return home and file new paperwork in order to become a legal American citizen. For the remainder of the season, Dillman dealt with immigration services from both countries. He was granted American citizenship and returned to California two weeks ago.

    Though missing the majority of the season to obtain citizenship didn’t advance Dillman’s gridiron maturation, Moschetti promises it won’t make a difference. In his eyes, the quarterback is so talented that, over the next few years, top programs spanning the country will come flocking with scholarships.

    In fact, it’s already begun. Colorado, Louisville and UCLA have extended offers and Cal could be next in line.

    “I’ve never seen anything like this kid,” Moschetti said. “I saw Matt Barkley play as a freshman and there’s no comparison. This kid is a freak. He’s big, he’s fast, he throws deep and mentally he has it all. I didn’t want him to stay here and then immigration down the road makes it hard on him to become a legal citizen. I know he’s going to get recruited by everybody.”

  40. Warrior Dave March 13, 2012 10:42 am


    Benson should merge the Sun with the WAC. Strength in numbers? I still can’t understand the Con. USA with Mountain West with no new TV deal.

  41. Graham March 13, 2012 10:45 am

  42. mo808 March 13, 2012 10:45 am

    I hope the rest of the acceptances are secured for this recruiting class shortly! Looking forward to updates from FB spring camp as well!

    Go Wahine & Go Warriors!

  43. Couch potato March 13, 2012 10:51 am

    from what i read the black out was requested by the team.

    also, the last i heard, the green used on the Warrior uniform is PMS 3435. don’t know if this has changed since shades of dark green look the same from my seat in the stadium.

  44. Otto March 13, 2012 10:52 am

    #13. Time Warner Oceanic only has the one TV remote van (that they lease? rent? from KFVE) so I doubt they have the hardware to broadcast two events simultaneously.

    #35. Who cares what color and what nickname. The name is HAWAII.

    Pomai, yes, it tells me the team is proactive and wants to get the fans involved. it tells me there is or was a consistent green for Warrior uniforms. finally, it tells me that i no care what shade of green they wear as long they play like Warriors.


  49. papajoe2 March 13, 2012 11:06 am

    Syracuse center ruled ineligible for the NCAA tournament because of eligibility issues? If was Hawaii high school football would have forfieted the tournament games, ala Kahuku. Is our rules too strict?

  50. Steve March 13, 2012 11:11 am

    otto (#45), if Oceanic is leasing a TV remote van from KFVE, then they have 2 TV remote vans, cause Oceanic has a TV remote van of their own. Which they use for high school events. Guess they are leasing KFVE’s van for UH events.

  51. Couch potato March 13, 2012 11:23 am

    did the syracuse center participate in any bball games while he was ineligible?

  52. Kevin March 13, 2012 11:27 am


    This year is the FIRST time in years that the softball team got primary green jerseys.

    The Under Armour deal gave them, classic Yankee gray w/green trim, black w/green trim, pinstripe white, and pure white with green trim. Pants were black, gray both w/green trim, green w/black trim, and pinstripe white.

    Prior to the UA deal, they had a company called “Victory” do their uniforms with like 8 different combos and designs but mostly dark colors and heavily featured the silver… (YUCK) *There was some green or half green ones though.*

    They debuted their new UA green tops vs Florida State. The outcome was self-explainatory.

  53. Pomai March 13, 2012 11:32 am

    Kevin, thanks for the sb uniform background. glad that ua is on the ball, so to speak.

    Pomai, ummm, did the color change? so much for whoever is responsible for getting the word out. no matter though, i like different flavors of green. easier to pick from the drawer what t-shirt i like wear. 😆

  63. papajoe2 March 13, 2012 12:48 pm

    cp, sorry if you still there waiting as I posted and stepped out. Yes, I beleive the Syracuse center played the whole season. He had almost 6 rebounds, 7+ points and 2+ blocked shots per game.

  64. DaveLetterMan March 13, 2012 12:48 pm

    If we’re waiting for Frank Fasi’s decision, we might be waiting a looooong time.

  65. Kevin March 13, 2012 12:48 pm

    Yes. I was too young to appreciate it, but by all accounts, Fasi was the man that urinated on what is the norm with the buearucratic process that makes Hawaii move at the pace of fresh honey mustard from the Big Island via Honey Glazed Hams of Hawaii.

  66. Steve March 13, 2012 12:48 pm

    It is good that the girls chose black, cause it is a very dominant color.

    No worries, your concern was taken under advisement a while ago.

  68. Garret March 13, 2012 12:54 pm

    We’ve known for some time that UTSA has been in contact with C-USA commissioner Britton Banowsky. But despite having been identified by multiple outlets as a candidate to join the so-called Alliance, I have yet to receive any indication, from even the most optimistic sources, that the Roadrunners’ chances are anything but slim at best.

    In fact, a Mountain West athletic director recently told me flat-out that it’s too soon for UTSA, which will play only its second football season this fall, to make such a jump.

    Add UTSA’s existing relationship with Benson, and I will be honestly shocked if the Roadrunners aren’t a Sun Belt member in the very near future.

  69. Kevin March 13, 2012 1:00 pm


    The color has NOT changed, if anything the only “changes” is getting all uniforms across the board to use PMS 3435. The away basketball uniforms that we rarely get to see are in the PMS 3435 even though they use Addidas. PMS 3435 is not relegated to UA apparel anyway.

    Also, just a heads-up, there will be MORE UA sunglasses coming out for UH. The softball players rarely use them, but they will have some if they want it, or end up giving them away as promos or gifts. But they will supposedly by hitting the Rainbowtique stores soon.

  70. chiefgator March 13, 2012 1:01 pm

    One of the softball games at Las Cruces Community College is on ESPNU March 30th.

    NMSU head coach wanted this game at 8pm to make it as cold as possible for us when we get there, but ESPN shut that down due to… guess what? Lack of adequate field lighting hence moving the game to 4pm.

    NMSU’s field lights are comparable to that at the RWSS.

  72. Couch potato March 13, 2012 1:03 pm

    papajoe2, just read he was suspended for 3 games during the regular season. seems like there was some type of hand slapping.

  73. FattyMcButterpants March 13, 2012 1:04 pm

    Is there anyway to view the softball games on the Net? DirectTv doesn’t carry the Oceanic channel 12

  74. rooster March 13, 2012 1:05 pm

    When supporters wear the same exact color it shows school pride and unity. It shows the other team that we all stand for one team. So I got nothing against wearing all black shirts, I am definitely not the one who wears blue to a UH game. All I saying is it would look much more awesome if every fan of UH would wear the same shade of green to all games. Wearing all the same shade of green reinforces the unity and “creates a strong visual impact.” But unfortunately, in my opinion being all black shirts in the stands has no intimidation factor.

    Looks to me that UH and all their supporters want to be “Big Time” but don’t know how to act and look “Big Time”. You think Texas fans wear all different shades of burnt orange? UW different purple? USC different shades???

    UH is supposed to be Hawaii’s Pro Team. Maybe the University and its fans should start acting like one. Its kinda time to stop being small time, don’t ya think? Like everyone is saying, It’s Chow-time!!!

  75. Kevin March 13, 2012 1:06 pm

    There is a WAC Softball Blog run by a Fresno State fan, where Stephanie Ricketts’ record breaking 83 win making her the all time winningest pitcher in UH history wasn’t mentioned but Michelle Moses’ one hitter streak kept getting attention.

  76. Kevin March 13, 2012 1:07 pm


    You might want to check out Texas’ website then, UH has the exclusive deal with Oceanic so Oceanic live stream is the only non-televised choice other than live stats if you cannot watch on TV.

  77. rooster March 13, 2012 1:09 pm

    UH should have a policy if anyone license shirts or UH gear everything has to be in that green , PMS3435 color

  78. Last Call March 13, 2012 1:11 pm

    I really don’t get this black-out thing ? Does black turn into the Oakland Raiders,does black make you meaner ?

    On the flip side I also don’t get the green-out or white-out thing either.

    How about a nudist night ?

  79. Kevin March 13, 2012 1:14 pm


    March 13th, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    UH should have a policy if anyone license shirts or UH gear everything has to be in that green , PMS3435 color

    That policy IS written into place as part of the marketing package licensed vendors receive and have to adhere by.

  80. Pomai March 13, 2012 1:15 pm

    #77 – rooster – in this situation the team is wearing all black and they(the team) asked if the fans would also wear black, IMHO it dosen’t matter if it intimidates anyone what matters is that it shows the fans support for the team.

  81. Couch potato March 13, 2012 1:16 pm

    doesn’t matter if we get the black-out thing or not. the request was made by the team and if you want to comply then it’s up to you.

  82. DaveLetterMan March 13, 2012 1:16 pm

    LOL – nudist night. Don’t know which team would benefit from that!

  83. Kevin March 13, 2012 1:18 pm

    Whether black shows intimidation or not is in the eyes of the beholder.

    If a team gets rattled about their opponents wearing black, then that team has no business being involved with competitive sports.

  84. DaveLetterMan March 13, 2012 1:22 pm

    Nude fans would definitely rattle any team.

    Like i said before, i got no problem wearing black i just don’t like it. can’t i have a different opinion? I would rather have fans wearing green. oh my, sorry i disagreed and shared my opinion. i didn’t mean to upset anyone.

    decisions decisions. in the bayou it’s too late, send your fax to the 808.

    Fehoko: Go with your heart. You know that you will be much happier in Hawaii. The University of awaii has produced linemen that have been drafted and played in the NFL. If that is going to be your future career then great. After its over you will still be able to come back and live in Hawaii and be part of the community and the Ohana. You know it will not be the same by going to Louisiana. Follow your heart.

    Nude fans would definitely rattle any team.


    I’d be more worried about those trampled in the stampede for the exits. I’ll be wearing that “slimming” black today.

    GO WAHINE!!!

    well regardless of where fehoko fanaika signs on the dotted line…

    that his decision has gone this far with hawaii still very much in the hunt should tell ahouse, mattyboy, and others that, there’s always a chance at the highest heights just need hope and a prayer.

    I like Norm Chow and hopes he does well. But we in Hawaii have no pro sports. I got addicted to the run n shoot. It is like fantasy football. I know we can’t cry over spilled milk but June Jones idea of playing a game where every offensive play is a pass intrigues me and has me spoiled for the run n shoot for life. We will never see it again. I think Nick Rolovich will be a genius wunderkind one day. I am having withdrawals symptoms for football. Basketball is too fast and nerve wracking to watch. I love it when they have rivalries like Magic Johnson vs Larry Bird, or Wilt Chamberlain vs Bill Russell. Golfing is player vs hole, I like player vs player. At least put some mixed martial arts boxing. So boring during non football season. Yawn

    Garret, re #38 and #70, it wouldn’t surprise me to see several WAC schools end up in the Sun Belt. UTSA (along with Charlotte) would expand the Sun Belt to 12 in football, which is Karl Benson’s stated goal; UT Arlington could be added as a second non-football member to balance Arkansas-Little Rock; and LaTech and Texas State could be invited to backfill if the MWC-CUSA Alliance takes North Texas and Florida International.

    If the Alliance were to also take San Jose State and Utah State, the WAC would be finished as a football conference. Idaho might then decide to give up on playing at the FBS level and join the Big Sky. That would leave Boise State in the WAC with just Seattle, Denver and New Mexico State.

    I think that would be good for Hawaii because it might convince the Broncos to give up on joining the Big East for football and the WAC for other sports. Instead Boise State could end up in the Alliance, bringing San Diego State along as well, which would help make the Alliance more marketable and increase the TV payout to all members including UH.

    Roughriders have assigned Colt the jersey # 2

    Alrighty then!

    We in Hawaii like to be entertained. The Harlem Globetrotters play phony games but crowds love their clowning and funny antics. Albeit they are not as popular today as yesteryear, they are so very entertaining. Dick Tomeys offense was so boring to watch —2 runs and maybe a pass. A good man though. Dick Tomey is a Class guy. But the run n shoot. Golly miss Molly it was so fun to watch—-fantasy football.

    liz that is my favorite number.

  115. cheepono March 13, 2012 3:58 pm

    college of san mateo just had one of their linebackers sign with washington state for the 2012 class today. guess fehoko ain’t the only late signee coming out of csm this year.

  116. mctruck March 13, 2012 4:05 pm

    reflecting on Fehoko today, I was wondering if he’s mobile enough for running plays, or is he just one dimentional, as in-pass-blocking?…that being said, isn’t coach Chow’s offense more running than passing? just wondering?

  117. BigHiloFan2 March 13, 2012 4:06 pm

    Good afternoon Tsaikos everywhere.


    the power of prayer.

  119. cheepono March 13, 2012 4:09 pm

    ^ he was mauling guys on his highlight vid when they ran the ball.

  120. Buffoman March 13, 2012 4:09 pm

    #125 True his offense was a sleeper, but boy did I enjoy watching his defense and special teams. I think with his philosophy, the offense just needed to be in position to take advantage of what the defense and special teams would give them.

    I think Coach Chow’s team will have an exciting offense (no run-n-shoot), a tough defense and a much improved special team.

    Just have to see what happens and as a realist, I am not expecting a 10-2 season. The excitement will be in the improvements we’ll see in blocking and tackling, team discipline and the foundation for better things to come.

  121. mctruck March 13, 2012 4:13 pm

    BIH2 and cheepono,
