Sorry for the late post.
Traffic was bad because we had to drive around all the people thrown under the bus at yesterday’s hearing.

“Chipped up” is the designation for a player who has more than an ache but less than a serious injury. Yesterday, there were several chipped up players — Scott Harding, Justin Clapp, Mike Sellers, to name a few — but they should be ready to go for the BYU game.
The biggest surprise was the appearance of wideout Billy Ray Stutzmann, who came back 3 1/2 weeks earlier than expected following hand surgery. There still are eight pins and a plate in his left hand — he might need to show up at the airport and hour earlier tomorrow — but he appears to be back to normal. Paired with Trevor Davis, the Warriors can now stretch the field a little better.
Running back Joey Iosefa also should be available to play. He was held out of the Nevada game as a precaution after missing three of the four contact practices last week.

At least ESPN Classic understands the importance of UH-BYU week. It showed the 2001 game.
Of note: 1) That field is really green. 2) Remember when the field used to be covered with newspaper streams? 3) Craig Stutzmann sure can punt a football.

Happy birthday to BigWave.
