The day after

Hey, where are my shades? The sun did rise this morning.

For the Warriors, there are lessons from yesterday’s loss to USC.

For one, that was the most difficult challenge they will face this season. After that perfect storm —  opening on the road, before 93,000 fans, on a Kleenex-dabbing day when former USC linebacker Junior Seau was mourned, against the nation’s top-ranked team — the rest of the schedule will be less bumpy.

In the third quarter, the Warriors showed what their offense will look like in rhythm: Play-action plays, quick-trap runs, multiple formations.

They eliminated the silly penalties, but now must control the penalties deriving from over-aggressiveness.

Quarterback Sean Schroeder was gritty, cornerback Mike Edwards played well, and Scott Harding played everywhere.

Too bad the Warriors have to wait two weeks for their next game.

    If you would have voted Colt Brennan for the HOF based off of 2008 preseason performances (petition online #48756) maybe our bruddah’s wouldn’t have been so embarrassed. Mon’atiki was watching AND caused the UH humiliation.

  2. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 4:08 am

    Good morning Tsaikos.

    Warriors, let’s do this together.

    yesterday, I thought you, as a team, did good for yourselves, reallll goop deter, and I know you know you will do betterer.

  3. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 4:11 am

    Thanks for posting Coach Chow’s post game interview

  4. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 4:13 am

    Yap is solid!

  5. Nakoa September 2, 2012 4:13 am

    Being out-played and out-coached, along with the clearly huge talent gap is what we saw in LA. To say that it was a matter of the crowd size or the fact that Junior Seau was being honored is just not true. We ran into a buzz-saw folks, simple as that. You are right about one thing Stephen, we won’t face another team of this caliber. I also was impressed by Schroeder’s gritty performance despite being so out-gunned and spending most of (if not all of) the night under severe pressure. There should be a lot of growth and improvement over the next two weeks and I fully expect us to finish higher than our 7th ranked conference prediction.

  6. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 4:19 am

    Ben, Blake, Kapua, Sean, you Oline guys did good

    And da rest you guys did good too.

  7. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 4:22 am

    I agree with Nakoa’s assessment and expectations

  8. Naks8 September 2, 2012 4:25 am

    That was step one. Now time to work on the small stuff

  9. wafan September 2, 2012 4:26 am

    Good morning everyone . . . trolls, too!

  11. wafan September 2, 2012 4:28 am

    Regroup, refocus, review.

    And reSMU the sock puppets.

  12. just saying September 2, 2012 4:45 am

    i see a great improvement in coaching from last year , no unsporstment like penalties, better time management of time outs, good half time adjustment and great effort from the team even though they lost. really liked freshman corner nequan

  13. protector September 2, 2012 4:57 am

    The second half was like “night-and-day” and showed (for the most part) good execution. I got ticked off by the disparity of officiating in the first half of play, Zebras called a number of phantom interference as well as calls that easily could’ve gone the other way. All this while our receivers were being mugged / assaulted. What’s wrong with that picture. I’d say that it goes back to protectionism by refs of the marquee team. And once again, that team did not need any help or assistance whatsoever. They got it anyway.

  14. Hank September 2, 2012 4:59 am

    Many positives to take from yesterday’s loss. Excited about the play of Beau Yap, Nequan, Edwards and Harding. Sean is a gift. Mahalo nui Duke University. Special teams looked especially improved.

    I look forward to an exciting season.

  15. Keoniana September 2, 2012 5:04 am

    I don’t understand why the Oline did a good job. What is a good job? The QB was sacked 5-6 times, hurried 10 times and knocked down so many times I lost count. Hawaii totaled 45 yards rushing. Negative 4 by Halftime…I don’t see that as a good job. They played horrible and awful. Let’ be honest, once again, over and over, Hawaii embarrassed on National TV.

    Let’s be honest if we told our Oline, guys you did good last night, keep playing like that every week, and we’ll go to the Hawaii bowl, I don’t think that was a good game..

  16. Shoko September 2, 2012 5:15 am

    Excellent effort put forth by our Warriors. They all played with alot of heart and never gave up. Special props to Schroeder who took a beating, but still got up. Thats the definition of a true Warrior!

    P.S. Just remember, there’s still alot more football to be played. It’s not over till its over!

  17. mokumanu September 2, 2012 5:19 am

    Decent game for the guys against the no. 1 ranked team at their house–the team that a lot of people hope will break the SEC lock on the national stage. What better way to learn about strengths and weaknesses than going up against the best. I applaud Coach Chow and his coaches for their efforts and their attitude. This is a man who sticks with his players and the players will do so in return.

  18. Garret September 2, 2012 5:20 am

    I agree that Schroeder showed toughness. He took hit after hit and showed that he will keep his poise in the pocket, take the hit, all to make a completion. He was rusty after basically not playing in a game since high school 4 years ago, but he was so much better in the second half despite all the hits he took.

    My only worry for him is that all of those types of hits will have a cumulative effect and it is rare for a QB to make it through a season anyway without having to miss some time. I hope that UH gets a big lead against Lamar and gets at least 2 other QBs some game reps to prep them if they need to go into a game later in the season.

  19. Garret September 2, 2012 5:30 am

    Mike Edwards did a great job and showed he has that next-level talent and why he was recruited by so many top programs out of high school.

    Scott Harding played in a variety of roles and punting was *not* a factor in the loss. In fact, it would have been hard for any punter to have done better for UH in this game–the rugby-style rolling punts kept USC from returning them and one of them rolled to the 6-inch line. USC ran back a punt the last time they played UH and they have a VERY dangerous return game, so UH’s net punting against USC might be the best that anyone does against USC the entire season.

    Gregory was better than I was expecting, and I had expected him to be good.

    Hall showed good hands and the ability to make himself a safe target for the QB–that is exactly what UH needed and that TE dimension hasn’t been available for UH for so many years.

    GDL was flying around early–great QB pressure and a very aggressive tackle.

    Great job of forcing a turnover by USC on the run after the catch, the D needs to get turnovers to create opportunities this season.

    Very few penalties of the “opening-game” type (motion, procedure, 12 men, etc.), shows UH was disciplined and poised in a hostile environment.

    Several of the pass interference penalties were on purpose and were a LOT better than giving up the TDs that would have happened if the defender hadn’t committed the PI.

    Great adjustments at halftime led to the 2 best drives UH had all game.

    Mistakes hurt badly, but should be expected in the first game. Fumble in the wildcat on UH’s best drive of the 1st half, kickoff coverage after UH’s only TD, both were momentum killers.

  20. Garret September 2, 2012 5:34 am

    The saying that the biggest improvement for a team is between their first and second games is probably even more true for this UH team than almost any other team. Extra time will help the players get even more comfortable in the new systems. The practice time will help correct the mistakes that were made.

    UH will be ready to take out all of their frustration and show how much better they are when they finally get to play in front of their home fans in 2 weeks. The D-IAA Lamar team that lost 40-0 against Louisiana-Lafayette yesterday will travel quite far to get blasted in the game…but at least they will have a trip to Hawaii to talk about for years.

  21. d1shima September 2, 2012 5:35 am

    Great Morning All!

    “A” for Effort can be handed out to many.

    Come home, watch film, listen to the coaches, learn, move on.

    Lamar not going give a rip about yesterday’s game.

    Be ready.

    Are You Ready?!?!

  22. Garret September 2, 2012 5:38 am

    Here is a classic example about how my parents are good UH fans:

    They had a chance for a *free* trip to Vegas–free air because my sister works for Hawaiian, free room at the Cal from me–but they turned that down because they cannot miss a UH home game. Even though UH is playing a D-IAA school and lost yesterday, they can’t miss a UH home game. Especially because it is the opener and they want to bring pan lau lau to the Tsaiko tailgate.

    A lot of people would take a free trip to Vegas, especially since their grandchildren will be there. Instead, they will get to feed the lau lau to the Tsaikos and be there for Coach Chow’s first UH win.

    I would have made the same choice that they did.

  23. d1shima September 2, 2012 5:39 am

    Spot on, Garret.


    Great adjustments at halftime led to the 2 best drives UH had all game.

    When was the last time THAT could be said postgame?

  24. d1shima September 2, 2012 5:41 am


    In that case I feel like I should have two servings of pan laulau! 😈 😆 🙂

  25. mo808 September 2, 2012 5:42 am

    Good Morning All! Yes, indeed…the next Day!

  26. Garret September 2, 2012 5:48 am


    I’m sorry, I never answered your question from yesterday. I didn’t get to attend the game because I had to leave the entire weekend free due to work–our biggest customer (their contract is paying for my entire group’s salaries and a lot more) was here last week for meetings and we have to get a report with updated results to them over this weekend. This visit was scheduled for awhile now and all vacations/weekends were reserved for the past 2 weeks for me and a couple of others.

    I was actually at work Saturday morning, but was home for the game of course.

    I’m in Tom’s group for the SDSU game.

  27. Garret September 2, 2012 5:49 am


    I wish that *I* could have some of that pan laulau…you can have some for me!

  28. mo808 September 2, 2012 5:53 am

    Wow. Garrett! I look forward to savoring that pan lau lau at the first game and hugging your parents for their awesomeness of putting UH and the Tsaikos before anything else!

  29. Haleakala September 2, 2012 5:59 am

    I was impressed with UH’s defense against the run. There were several 4th down short yardage situations which SC went for it and was stuffed. Kiffen could not have been happy with those.

  30. pueo September 2, 2012 6:04 am

    UH will be a better team this year and the rebuilding will bring back some quality play they played as a team and there was a discipline that showed thru a very difficult game.In the long run i believe chow will make these guys better young men for whatever their futures hold.

  31. Wayne September 2, 2012 6:09 am

    I thought it was a good effort by the team after halftime…night and day from the first half. They will be ok when conference play starts. Couldn’t believe all of the interference penalties…some of them phantom. What happened to LB Brenden Daley? Is he hurt? I did not see him in the game.

  32. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:13 am

    Welcome home, guys! I was as jittery as the players yesterday, maybe even more so. After the game, I was exhausted.

    I hope the coaches can get the O line to improve. Our quarterback was sacked or hurried too many times. Gotta protect the QB.

  33. d1shima September 2, 2012 6:13 am

    reposting Coach Chow’s postgame interview (originally by WarriorMojo)

    Straightforward and simple. Lots to like, more to work on.

    I especially like that he points to scheme (coaches) more than mistakes (players) to be corrected. Good coaching takes what you got in player capabilities and puts them in the best position to make winning plays.

  34. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:15 am

    But, you know, although I was disappointed in the score, I feel so hopeful about the future. The Warriors will only get better and better as the weeks go by. For sure, we will play in the Hawaii Bowl come December!

  35. mo808 September 2, 2012 6:23 am

    Hi Gigi! Are you coming to the first home game and Tsaiko tailgate?

  36. Nicholas September 2, 2012 6:23 am

    From a Hawaiian and a Trojan fan, Hawaii should hold its head high as it played hard against a team with more talent and firepower. Although the outcome was lopsided, The No 1 Trojans and the Warriors require much work…correcting many obvious mistakes manifested on both sides of the ball. Kudos go to Sean Schroeder…he showed toughness and grit. Hawaii’s young team, will get better as the season progresses; it deserves a better ranking than 7th in its conference. Next year, with valuable experience gained this year under Chow’s system, and hopefully with more talent recruited on both sides of the ball, I look for Hawaii to be exciting and competitive as it was during the Wagner-Jones years. The run-and-shoot style was exciting, usually outscoring its opponents. However, I like the Chow style which also devotes time and energy to defense and special teams. To win by 49 to 42 is exciting, but to win by a score of 21-14 can be just as gratifying…especially against a ranked opponent. No shame to have lost to a team that has two Heisman candidates in Matt Barclay and Marqise Lee. Hawaii played hard in losing, and should be commended for not being awed by the 93,000 coliseum Trojan fans and keeping its head up after the game.

    Go Warrriors. Mahalo, Nick

  37. mo808 September 2, 2012 6:24 am

    The Warriors need to have that stadium packed out to show our support!

  38. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:28 am

    Hi, Mo! David and I might attend the tailgate, we’ll see.

  39. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:28 am

    We bought pay per view again this year.

  40. Buffoman September 2, 2012 6:29 am

    We were definitely out played and there was definitely more talent on the other side, but out coached? I don’t think it is that simple. If we had that kind of talent on our side, and we had been in this system for three years and we lost as we did, I would agree that we were out coached.

    That being said, we were not out coached, but we were definitely beat.

    The team showed signs of having the ability to keep improving in a new system with new coaches and a new philosophy.

    The o-line did what was expected of a new o-line and against a defense like what SC put up in front of them, they did what was expected, but I will say that they did okay given that they were in a new scheme against the #1 ranked team.

    Don’t fault the men in stripes, there were a ton of no calls both ways. In replays there were a bunch of wrap ups by our o-linemen on the charging SC defensemen that were not called. In the end the much better equipped team won. They may probably do it again when we play them again. Talent in abundance is a definite factor.

    Bad result but as I stated in a previous post, I remain hopeful that improvements will come.

  41. chiefgator September 2, 2012 6:34 am

    Sean Schroeder should get the Medal of Honor for being pounded into the ground and yet getting up. Even Jason Mayhem Miller would not get up after being knocked that many times. Here’s a guy going for his Masters degree in his junior year. Since when did we have an athlete going for his Masters in only his junior season? In the Sugar Bowl, Colt Brennan was getting slammed to the ground by the Georgia Bulldogs so often June Jones felt badly for him and pulled him from the game in the third quarter. But not Sean Schroeder, he kept getting up and kept getting up and kept getting up. Just like Rocky Balboa getting knocked down time after time by Apollo Creed, he would not stay down. And there folks is a fine example of a SPECIAL athlete. Sean Schroeder. He got more chalungas than Mike Tyson. He is a special guy, I would not bet a patriot missile would knock him down. We hawaii fans are lucky. We will be treated to a QB who is courages, brave and fearless. And I would not bet he will become a great one. Another one of Norm Chow’s special QB. It is all good!!!!

  42. mo808 September 2, 2012 6:39 am

    @ 42. chiefgatot, I agree wholeheartedly! Sean did everything he could to keep coming back. He really impressed in the 3rd qtr!

  43. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:40 am

    I agree. Sean Schroeder is special. As Chow said, Sean has the It factor. Wonder why he was wearing a brace on his right knee, though. Hope it isn’t serious.

  44. mo808 September 2, 2012 6:40 am

    Sorry for the misspelling chiefgator… It’s my dumb spellcheck

  45. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:41 am

    Harding is special, too. Can’t say enough good things about him. He was EVERYWHERE. Awesome, talented, and gritty player!!!

  46. mo808 September 2, 2012 6:42 am

    Gigi, does it have something to do with making sure the QB knows how to plant his stance in the pocket?

  47. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 6:43 am

    Mo, it might be, don’t really know.

  48. mo808 September 2, 2012 6:44 am


  49. wafan September 2, 2012 6:49 am

    They already named a street after Harding prior to yesterday’s performance.

    How forward thinking was that?!?!

  50. wafan September 2, 2012 6:50 am

    Time for the first nap of the day.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh . . .

  51. R6Tuan September 2, 2012 6:56 am


    i remember reading on here that Chow makes all the quarterbacks wear knee braces as a precaution. i could be wrong

  52. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 7:00 am

    But why only 1 brace?

  53. chiefgator September 2, 2012 7:07 am

    The Fox play by play were in awe of Sean Schroeder getting up after hit, after hit, after hit. The announcers were hinting maybe Norm Chow should take him out. Not Sean. He won’t stay down like Rocky Balboa. Yes sir, he does have the “It” factor. And the Fox play by play announcers were also in awe of Scott Harding. Punting left footed, punting right footed, running kick backs, playing receiver. Do we have a reiincarnation of Jim thorpe? Only Norms first year and already he gives us two athletes with MAGIC!!!!!!!WOWEEEEE we fans have got a lot to look forward to. That’s okay for mispelling my name, just call me Manroop Clair, LOL a Pistol Pete Maravich reiincarnation.

  54. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 7:22 am

    There was two 4th down plays that stood out, the flipped da ruuba around, the one on the outside, man to man, and brudda hung on and that is the picture of a Warrior. Yup I got hope.

  55. Stiguy808 September 2, 2012 7:23 am

    My impressions from yesterday’s game. Our defense played with controlled aggression rather than wild abandon. Props to them. I liked our cornerback play despite the penalties and giving up big plays. They will get better playing man press and open all sorts of possibilities for the rest of the D. Lane Kiffin…fighting every inch for your guys, but in the process you crossed the line of ultra competitor into douche bag crybaby territory. NFL to Matt Barkley: “Good job keeping your guys in check.” NFL to Marqise Lee: “Come see us in a couple years. We already have one Santonio Holmes and really don’t want another.” USC linebacker #10 you earned the PAB award of the game.

  56. rage777 September 2, 2012 7:24 am

    So what happens if Scott Harding gets hurt? We lose our punter, receiver, punt returner, and place holder. I know he is tough because of the Aussie Football, but being a receiver and punt returner gives you a higher chance of getting hurt.

    I am proud of the way the whole team played. They could have been down after the first half, but they showed guts and pride and played a good second half. I am going to have to hear it from my USC co-workers, but at least they didn’t cover the spread.

  57. cincodemayonnaisse September 2, 2012 7:27 am

    I took away a lot of positives. But I’m a half full glass kinda guy.

    IMO the small mistakes get amplified against a team like USC. A lot of teams wouldn’t be able to capitalize on our mistakes like SC did. I think we made some good defensive adjustments scheme wise in the 2nd half but we still had some missed assignments. This team will only get better with every game it plays…

    We still don’t have the firepower to be a JJ/Colt type team yet. But I can see it brewing.

    That Schroeder kid makes good decisions. With time and reps he can run this offense and get us some wins. Love his composure.

    With Coach Chow at the helm I feel totally confident we’ll improve. With all our coaches commitment to excellence I can only see us improving.

    Lotta heart by our guys….I’m proud of our effort, waiting two weeks for the next game will pins and needles.

  58. chiefgator September 2, 2012 7:27 am

    Sean Schroeder and Scott Harding are worth the price of admission in itself. But the team has budding stars. Will Gregory. NeQuan Phillips. Joey Iosefa. Center Ben Clarke had a rough game but what freshman wouldn’t against the number one team? Our defense will be very good. Once Scott Harding gets settled in at receiver—watch out!!! An ambidextrous punter who runs kick backs may play like Greg Salas? Awesome!

  59. AlaWai September 2, 2012 7:45 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka:

    Warriors who made the practice squads.

  60. lava September 2, 2012 7:46 am

    Despite a bunch of missed opportunities by USC, 20-0 after 1, and 35-0 at the half, when USC called off the dogs. I don’t consider that a football game, nor did I consider it entertaining. At least it’s in the books. We won’t look that bad again this season.

    For those of you keeping count, the offense was not nearly as effective as when we last played USC, despite Chow having the element of surprise working for him.

  61. tommui September 2, 2012 7:49 am


    You did us proud even in adversity.

    WAHINE – good going! Beat CAL!

  62. AlaWai September 2, 2012 7:52 am

    A new Culture has been established in the Quarry. I was very impressed by the discipline, effort and resilience of our Warriors. It is a loss, but the team can walk tall and learn from this experience. UH will be better prepared for tough games on the road. At home we should be all business and execute with purpose. I want to go to Halawa and take my seat now! But I think I’ll sit in an ice bath as a proxy for Sean Schroeder. What a Warrior! His OL will improve and protect the new Big Bruddah. They will also learn a lot from his academic discipline and character. Imua Warriors, Imua!

  63. Da Punchbowl Kid September 2, 2012 7:53 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂

    Many positives to build on, for sure. I agree with chiefgator about certain individuals, but I also saw a different attitude team wide. No head hanging or “quit” in the Warriors. That, and the new coaching will make this a very good team down the road. As I posted in yesterblog, next year, they come to our house… we’ll be a year better with lots of returnees, SC will be in a rebuilding, er, reloading year. We need to make sure we show Coach Kiffen all the aloha he showed us, complete with going for two late in the game – little things like that.

    Work hard, Warriors, we fans can already see “it” in you.

  64. lava September 2, 2012 8:02 am

    Aside from the predictable slaughter on the field, how are we doing with recruiting? Any recruits at the game? USC already has 18 commits for next year, 5 5-star guys and 13 4-star guys. June always said the national exposure was great for recruiting. Did we try and capitalize on that, or was it a missed opportunity. The clock is ticking.

  65. PowderPuff September 2, 2012 8:14 am

    Good morning after, everyone. Re #23 – d1…amen! Taking everything into consideration, BRAVO for effort, guys (uber-hostile environment, etc.). Your halftime adjustments and no-quit attitude make us proud to be Warrior fans. We can’t wait to see you at Aloha Stadium on the 15th.

  66. Old School Dave September 2, 2012 8:15 am

    Props to the Warriors going against the No. 1 team in the nation. Props to USC, too, as they are truly a very talented team. It will not get any better than USC. UH’s young offensive line took their lumps, but will definitely learn a lot from this game. Game speed and practice speed is different. Seemed to me that the team looked disciplined, and organized – no substitution problems, players lined up in the wrong place, or poor clock management. Special teams, aside from several breakdowns, looks to be improved from last year. I also liked this team’s hustle up until the end. Says a lot. There’s a lot to improve upon, but there’s also a lot to build upon, too.

    One criticism: maybe Coach Chow should consider lasiks or contacts and get rid of the makule glasses?

    Need to regroup and focus on Lamar in two weeks. Going over their roster, they have a number of BCS transfers. Lot of talented players in Texas, so UH had better not decide to take it easy.

  67. RedZone September 2, 2012 8:24 am

    I doh no. I just feel sorry for Lamar. The beast will be unleashed.

  68. kev-1 September 2, 2012 8:31 am

    Even in the terrible first half, I saw things I liked. Then the second half came around, and I was impressed. We moved the ball really well against USC’s starters in the 3rd Quarter.

    Some things I noticed . . .

    Schroeder is tough as nails (just as many of you already have said). I do think his release is a bit slow, but other than that, he seems to have a good arm.

    Our secondary will be pretty good this year. They won’t see receivers like that the rest of the year. Both of those WRs are first rounders.

    Joey Iosefa shows WAY more agility than last year. Last season he was the (to steal a few words from Chris Berman) “rumblin, stumblin” type of RB. He looks quicker and shiftier than before. SUPER excited about what he will bring.

    Will Gregory will get hot and have several 100+ yard games.

    Harding is an MVP type player.

    Our LBs are studs. Nuff said about that.

    Although clearly outmatched, if I had to say I was disappointed in anything, it would probably be the receivers. They showed glimpses though, and I’m not overly worried.

    I hoped to see more pressure from the D-line, but the they were fairly successful not letting huge holes open up for the RBs. So that is a victory there.

  69. chiefgator September 2, 2012 8:33 am

    We no longer have the run and shoot. But per example at BYU and USC under Norm Chow as offensive coordinator, he does like to pass a lot. There will not be too much of a drop off in passing from the R&S in Norm Chow’s offense. I see exciting things ahead. If Sean Schroeder gets better and better, what happens to transfer Taylor Graham? Will he transfer again? The only problem with Sean Schroeder, he can’t run, he is not mobile. Well lets forget about it for this year. Next year will take care of itself.

  70. kev-1 September 2, 2012 8:33 am

    In one of the earlier posts, someone said UH was out coached. I disagree with that. The one thing that was clearly missing from yesterday was the “what the hell was he (the coach) thinking moment?” Recent coaches would have left us with a few of those in games like that.

  71. kev-1 September 2, 2012 8:35 am

    chiefgator . . . I was surprised at how often Chow chose to pass. I liked it. Showed good balance and was definitely NOT a boring offense to watch, as some have suggested it would be.

  72. Bigislandkurt September 2, 2012 8:42 am

    Indeed. This is a whole new era of Warrior football. I like what I see.

    Glass half full.


  73. chiefgator September 2, 2012 8:42 am

    kev-1, I noted how much Byu loved to pass under Lavell Edwards and Norm Chow followed suit when he became offensive coordinator at BYU. And likewise at USC. Norm’s pro-set offense does not neccessarily mean two runs and a pass. I think his offense will be exciting for the fans and his reputation nation wide will garner more and more 4-star recruits and even sneak in a 5-star recruit here and there.

  74. Warfan 808 September 2, 2012 8:45 am

    I loved the no give up attitude of this team and I can see shroder will be special this year, if you look at how many times that a hole kiffen went for it on 4 th down . It shows how many times we stopped them on 3rd down , I doubt any other team will do that. Loved philips, and harding . After being initialy sad, im excited for these next games where I think we can we a lot of games…go warriors

  75. RedZone September 2, 2012 8:45 am

    I think that there is a lot more to Chow’s offense than we have seen so far. I don’t know how people can judge on what they have seen in one game.

  76. Ipu Man September 2, 2012 8:47 am

    I think the defense did good holding USC several times on 3rd and 4th down attempts.

  77. AlaWai September 2, 2012 8:49 am

    We need to give Coach Chow a new greeting when he is introduced at Games.

    When the announcer says,”Head Coach, Norm Chow!”

    Everone should Yell, “HI NORM!”

  78. WarriorMojo September 2, 2012 8:50 am

    Sean and Scott at their post-game conference.

    Best quote “Yeah, we knew they were going to be a good side.”

    I really want to hear Koakane’s interpretation of Scott’s comments, LOL.

    And I really mean that LOL, ST.

  79. Ipu Man September 2, 2012 8:52 am

    And you’ve got to luv Ostrowski’s pinball spins that gobbled up extra yardage.

  80. WarriorMojo September 2, 2012 8:52 am

    “predictable slaughter”, pfft.

  81. chiefgator September 2, 2012 8:58 am

    Norm Chow will be like June Jones. Innovative, charismatic, highly loved and respected by players nationwide. Highly respected by coaching staffs nationwide. They both are good friends and share stories when they can. It’s all good for Hawaii and it;s all good Norm is a local boy. I vote for Bula’ia as our new mascot. I knew him. He’s a gas, real funny. In person he is very very intelligent.

  82. Luki September 2, 2012 9:01 am

    Thought the Warriors played better than expected and against the #1 ranked team in the nation no less. The O-Line is a bunch of sophomores, freshman, and one junior, and should get better, they are not going to face a defense like this again this season. Schroeder played tough! He got harassed, hurried, and buried and still got up for more. Defense is promising. Think we are going to ride our defense to wins this year as the offense will have to work through the kinks of a new system and personnel recruited for the run and shoot. Thought the coaching staff adjusted well after half time…

  83. madeinhawaii September 2, 2012 9:04 am

    I thought UH played much better against USC than they did against Wisconsin three years ago. Wisconsin had their way with UH and UH looked like little rag dolls being tossed in the wind. USC beat UH with some great plays and an exceptional aerial attack but on the ground, for most part, they had to fight hard for their yards.

    Most of the issues I saw could be fixed without a change in personnel. This is going to be a good team by the time Nevada rolls into town.

  84. madeinhawaii September 2, 2012 9:06 am

    BTW… should the UH President and current Chancellor get an indefinite leave of duty for UH’s poor grades? While the BOR reviews what’s happening?

  85. madeinhawaii September 2, 2012 9:06 am

    I’m just being facetious re that last post.

  86. tommui September 2, 2012 9:10 am

    I liked the comments of everyone on the Blog except for one – but I suppose we have to be tolerant of the mentally challenged who seem to like to hit people when they are down.

    The comments reflect my feelings that the best is yet to come. HI NORM!

  87. Shoko September 2, 2012 9:11 am

    No. Greenwood and Apple might sue for dafamation if put on leave. Then UH would have to create another couple positions for those two for reassignment. 😉

  88. Shoko September 2, 2012 9:13 am

    I, too, was being facetious with that last post. In case there’s anything confusion.

  89. Ipu Man September 2, 2012 9:18 am

    So what time is the SMU game, anyone know, and is it on tv?

  90. Shoko September 2, 2012 9:20 am

    Since Mike Squib invented the squib kick, perhaps Harding’s rugby-style kick should be called the Harding.

    Thank you, that is all…

  96. madeinhawaii September 2, 2012 9:25 am

    I like this comment by Schroeder..

    “I thought we were prepared and came out with good energy,” said Schroeder, a former Duke quarterback who graduated in only three years in Durham. “I’m proud of how the team played and fought until the end. We’ve got to execute more and cut down on the mental mistakes, myself included.”

    morning warrior nation

    disappointed about the loss but hopeful for the rest of the season. yes lots to be corrected but this first step was a good one. warriors will be a force to be reckoned with in the MW.


  99. koakane September 2, 2012 9:31 am

    looking forward to the home game in two weeks. we all need to be there and rock the hale. let’s make an honest effort to support the new warriors.

  100. madeinhawaii September 2, 2012 9:31 am

    Those two long plays — the first USC TD off of a pass at the start of the 1st half and the kick off return at the start of the 2nd half for a TD — as well as, the interception for a TD were, IMHO, the only plays that really made our team look bad.

  101. =VH= September 2, 2012 9:43 am

    I already miss the Run and Shoot

  102. A-House September 2, 2012 9:51 am

    Althoug UH lost yesterday, IMHO they did themselves proud how they played.

    Yes, it would have been great if they had won.

    Yes, there were many mistakes, but they can be corrected and I’m sure the coaching staff will make a concerted effort in this area.

    Fortuantely, there were no “major” injuries to the Warriors.

    Perhaps the “maka pia eye” didn’t see it correctly, but I swear on the first USC TD, the inside receiver was holding UH linebacker; the so called pik-six where the the UH receiver was hammered before the ball reached him causing the interception; and the 100-yd TD the left side contain guy was demolished from the back at the 18-23 yard line. All 3 should not have been TDs and UH still would have lost. Point here is that every time UH plays a very “hig ranked team” seems some official thinks they need help as happended in the Sugar Bowl. Sour grapes – absolutely not as the 3 TDs would not have changed the final outcome

  103. jeezy33 September 2, 2012 9:53 am

    103.. miss the run and shoot? Do you realize how many times Hawaii was running the run and shoot yesterday? Just because it wasn’t a true 4 wide set doesn’t mean we weren’t in shot gun with 3 WRs and a TE. We use a lot of run and shoot formations. This offense is just a little more diverse because we have different packages

  104. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 10:02 am

    The O-line was probably the most concerning part of the game. Schroeder can’t take those kinds of hits every game. I don’t anticipate he will though.

    We go from fighting the near impossible fight to a team that we should wipe the floor with. The Lamar game and the bye should do well to rest up and build confidence. Perfect timing.

    The real test will come when we start to play conference games. These are teams that are on the same level as us talent wise etc. If we can make the 3RD Q our standard, we will be VERY competitive in the MWC.

    Things are looking bright for our future. Just gotta keep the intensity and hard work up.

  105. Chicken Grease September 2, 2012 10:09 am

    Has it been said yet? A Grease will say it:

    In Dr. Chow, we have affinity and trust in a football coach like no other before.

    “Wait ’til next year” when SC comes to town? Well amen.

    And, heck folks, uh, there’s an entire season ahead.

    Sport that green, black, and silver. MAKE ALL YOUR CLOTHES GREEN, BLACK, AND SILVER.

    We ride. We support. We Warriors.

    P.S., you guys still don’t want those SC jokes? Yuk yuks.

  106. Kevin September 2, 2012 10:13 am

    Silver… silver..

    EFF SILVER. The wannabe Raider stench moved to a different state.

  107. A-House September 2, 2012 10:16 am

    #86 & #89:

    I am not facetious when I say those “low grades” are much more serious than the loss of $200K on the Wonder Gate fiasco.

    I believe it should be taken very seriously as Greenwood has been here at least 3 years.

    Now, who has the authority to place Greenwood on “leave with our without” pay? the BOR?

  108. chawan_cut September 2, 2012 10:20 am

    the sun does rise today… probably just a little bit brighter than it did in boise yesterday. at least our season isn’t over after one loss.

    get healthy warriors. watch tape. and get hungry in the next two weeks.

  109. Chicken Grease September 2, 2012 10:23 am

    Heh. Silver’s nice. Hear that complaint a lot from Dallas fans (oh, getting nauseated here), who have to be reminded that Cowboys’ helmets are hugely colored. IN. SILVER!!!!!! Should we call it a “hi-yo silver”? Yuk yuks?

    A Grease brings to attention the following “yet-another-USC-athlete-scandal-as-the-world-turns” story reported here today ion the Star-Advertiser ‘site:

    Can SC be “the number 1 powerhouse” without this kinda’ mess going on? I dunno; and you shouldn’t either.

    Did I imagine the rep’ SC has as a school where there’s latitude (this is REALLY being conservative) where you PAY for your degree? I’ll take the “oh, what’d you major in? Surfing” when a Grease tells that he grad’d UH-M vs. USC’s “pay for” penchant-reputation any day.

  110. Ipu Man September 2, 2012 10:31 am

    So…if USC is again found guilty of ncaa violations, will yesterday’s game

    be awarded to UH sometime next year?

  118. markazulu September 2, 2012 10:47 am

    Our boys just gotta start Stong and Finish Stronger every game. But I really liked what i saw Hawaii is known for when we are getting blown out they quit and this bunch didnt do it i love that. Sean Schroder is deserving of the number 1 qb, Iosefa & Harding are solid, I expect a bright future for Nequane Phillips and Will Gregory, Our LB’s played pretty good, Mike Edwards played exceptionally well and for the most part shut down Robert Woods who had 6 catches for only 42 yards but he did have 2 tds, Scott Harding hopefully has a break out year, Stutsman has great hands but doesnt seem to be able to break tackles, Ostrowski spinning was a sight to see and that amazing catch he had showed me ostrowski is gonna get targeted a lot and it will be exciting, Yap looks good and our D-line got a good push almost every play but couldnt get off blocks, The youth on this team is AMAZING and it has me looking at a brighter future. The score might have been lopsided but it was much easier to watch this game than the previous games (Boise St 04, Fresno St 04, USC 06, Sugar Bowl 07, Florida & Notre Dame 08, Wisconsin 09, Colorado & Tulsa 10, Pretty much every single game after we lost to UNLV in 2011)

  119. markazulu September 2, 2012 10:59 am

    It felt like our boys had confidence and in my opinion it felt like we lost NOT Because of our mistakes but because USC was just that good i think we played good the score might not show it but the fact is USC has potentially 4 NFL Draft Picks (Barkley, Lee, Woods, Redd), 4 1st Pre Season All Americans and they are what double digit in 4 and 5 star recruits not only that we have a VERY young team and i think we will get better with experience,

    A-House #109

    The Board of Regents is the only entity which can place the President or Chancellor on leave except for some significant criminal Penn State-style charges – the Governor and the Attorney General can then step in.

    However, to remove Greenwood and replace her will cost UH and the taxpayers at least $1.5 million dollars. To raise that kind of money without transferring the $$$ from UH’s Operations Budget, we could recycle 30 million HI-5 bottles & cans -which represents about 3% of the ones recycled each year since 2005 when the law kicked in. (one billion per year)

    With respect to Tom Apple – he has been on the job 2-1/2 months (June 18) so he could be considered as being in a probationary period. That needs to be addressed if his contract is terminated.


    Will post the date/time/location of the State Senate’s investigatory committee hearing as soon as it’s set. There will be live coverage on one of the `Olelo channels plus blog posts from other media outlets.

    Wonder what we’ll be reading/talking about on Sunday, December 2, 2012, here on The Warrior Beat.

    BTW – does anyone know when yesterday’s game was scheduled? I assume that it was done back when June Jones was coach and Herman Frazier was the Director of Athletics.

    wassup Doc:

    My post was not to replace her at this time; however, if an investigation shows she contributed to the poor results, then there must be some “punishment” doled out by the BOR.

    If there is cause, will the BOR do it? I don’t think they have the “alas” to do it.

  130. A-House September 2, 2012 11:35 am


    we have a small wager here – did you walk away from the tv after the first offensive play by USC.? if yes, how long did you stay away?

  136. Capitolist/WassupDoc September 2, 2012 11:50 am


    The BOR is required by law to oversee the University of Hawai`i System. They may not like to do some things, but that’s separate from what they’re mandated to do.

    Although Greenwood started working here on August 1, 2009, it probably took her the better part of a year to get fully educated & informed about the ten campuses, the money requiredments, etc.

    The issues raised in the national report go back much longer than Greenwood has been head of UH. They also include faculty, professional & para-professional staff – and, of course, the taxpayers as well as the Legislature.

    If you recall, there was a program announced earlier this year to encourage students to take 15 credits per semester and even attend summer school in order to graduate on time and reduce the costs of extending undergraduate programs beyond four years.

    OK, I know I’m a homer, but they couldn’t at least have given some props to UH? Typical arrogant SOBs.

    Seems to me that a professional educator/administrator like President Greenwoood should be held accountable for her actions and lack thereof concerning this unsatisfactory report. No getting around the fact that she has been here for 3 years already. If the BOR cannot/will not act accordingly on a “no confidence” vote, then maybe they should be compelled to resign. This may be through public outcry and State Legislative intervention. The students, faculty, parents, and the people of Hawaii deserve better.

  155. UHfan808 September 2, 2012 1:50 pm

    Very pleased with the results of the team’s hard work thus far during yesterday’s game against USC. They handled emotions and excitement with class. Can only get better if they continue their hard work. Excitedly looking forward to seeing their further development throughout this season’s games. Like watching the same kine movie time after time but get different details…

    Still so extremely overjoyed (thanks for that Pride. :wink:) about our coaching change to Coach Chow. Haven’t spent much time keeping up with the teams going on and doings very much this year but each time I do hear watch or read a story about the team or some part – good or not so good – all I (happily) see are sticking by the guns evidence – leading indicators – that the team is back on track again toward success focusing on doing the daily important little things (and with positive humble attitude) that will get us to the level of success we’ve anticipated all these years.

    Well this game is proof Coach has been definitely consciously delivering and instilling the basics basis the team needs 🙂

    On an addiitional note –

    Feedback and constant evaluation is necessary to be successful.

    Our keeping comments toward the positive (“hold on to that ball!”) will encourage a good experience for us all to build people(the players and coaches) rather than break them down (with negativity – “..stop dropping that ball!”).

    — e.g.:

    encouraging to *hold on to the ball* is positive 😎

    complaining of *stop dropping the ball* is more negative… :mrgreen:

    Now as UH Warrior Football fans we must also do our team part by contributing positive comminuty support


  156. UHfan808 September 2, 2012 1:53 pm

    @ 142. D1, my face is tear drenched…That haka (ha’a) was very moving and emotional.

  163. mo808 September 2, 2012 2:25 pm

    Happy Birthday Lopaka43 !!!

  164. mo808 September 2, 2012 2:27 pm

    @ 151. Slugger, I was thinking the very same thing…

  165. mo808 September 2, 2012 2:28 pm

    @ 157. Tommui, you are very astute!

  166. Gaston Fillman September 2, 2012 2:28 pm

    Hey there webmaster. You have a really nice site. Good design and GREAT content. This site deserves much more exposure. Have you considered a link building package to increase your search engine ranking and get much more people to your site? I think it would benefit you immensely. I highly recommend . See what can do for you!

  167. Dennis halloran September 2, 2012 2:28 pm

    Others have mentioned how accurate the point spread was, and I wonder how much was wagered.


  168. mo808 September 2, 2012 2:29 pm

    Go Wahine!!!

  169. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 2:31 pm

    Wise Guys working for sports books are good, real good. Scores aren’t going to be way the hell off most of the time. If it was, you wouldn’t be able to bet on it.

  170. gigi-hawaii September 2, 2012 2:44 pm

    Hubby and I plan to attend the Na Koa luncheon tomorrow. Will be exciting to meet Coach Chow for the first time.

  171. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 2:51 pm

    Ok I’ll bite. What’s the spread on USC-Syracuse?

  172. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 2:55 pm


    Represent! All Hail The Warriors,

    No quit no quit no quit. Yeeee-haaaa

  173. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 2:55 pm

    BIg Hilo,


  174. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:15 pm

    I sure would like to know how Michigan ranked #8 going into their game with Alabama which was ranked #2 got blasted and in the latest polls out this evening are still ranked #8??? talk about a fixed poll(s). What a farce!!

    Even as lousy a game Michigan State played in just barely beatin BSU…both teams are still ranked in the poop!, yeah I meant poop!

  175. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:21 pm

    Having watched both UH and BSU play their 1st games….me thinks UH played a whale of a game; if UH played MSU instead of USC, they would have beaten MSU….are those the right letters for michiagan state???

  176. BigHiloFan2 September 2, 2012 3:24 pm


    you outdid yourself, brudda. really great your #142. the whole 1/11 New Zealand Infantry Div showed up and did the haka for a fallen comrade. awe inspiring. real chicken skin moment your #142.

    somebody can post a utube of our haka, wit da words, so we can join in wen da Warriors make da kine fo us and demselves. thankx. 😀

  177. Da Punchbowl Kid September 2, 2012 3:25 pm

    Sock puppets predicting a huge UH loss and gloating about it after the game. Such fans deserve an “F”. As in st”F”u!

  178. BigHiloFan2 September 2, 2012 3:30 pm


    no odda big newspaper in da country would have da headline read “Oh, The Pain.” just like Star Advertiser had Warrior Beat sneekee Steve on staff. except, Ferd/Dave/ST no mo da bad jojo hakaka kine action. only da crybaby kine. :mrgreen: 😆 😆 😆

    Hey Tsaiko’s, Does anyone know if there’s a Coach Chow show?

  182. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:39 pm

    Ipu Man,

    With 4min.s and change…..Baylor whopping SMU, (59-14).

    don’t understand why this game was not broadcast????

  183. d1shima September 2, 2012 3:40 pm


    Not for hype….not for 93,000 spectators….not for fans back home….

    ….for 3 fallen comrades who have gone home.

  184. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:41 pm

    OOoops, correction…(59-17) with 3min.s and change.

  185. Ipu Man September 2, 2012 3:43 pm

    lucky u…..I guess I live in an area of Texas where the game is blacked-out.

  194. d1shima September 2, 2012 3:48 pm

    Watching Waco…reading wack-o!

  195. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:48 pm

    My next door neighbor is an alumnus of Baylor….rah,rah,rah.

  196. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:50 pm

    Well, we’ll see how SMU fares in the bigleast next year…..JJ shud have gone to Arizona State if all the cards fell in place that is.

  197. d1shima September 2, 2012 3:52 pm

    Also get BTN. Hilarious watching the spin on Brady Hoke’s U of M getting thrashed by ‘Bama! 😆

    “…this is only the second year of a coach who took over a team that only won 6 conference games in the past 3 years yada yada yada…but we blame it all on Bush!” 😈

  198. Da Punchbowl Kid September 2, 2012 3:53 pm

    Its an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as tommui. Notice I didn’t mention any names in my post, but you responded – you know who you are. I apologize for being crass, but when you watch our QB get up from so many hard hits and keep coming, its hard to read people who want nothing more than to antagonize some and criticize the rest.

    FYI – me, I’m nobody, but in tommui, you won’t find a better UH fan anywhere. ANYWHERE!

  199. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:54 pm

    game over….baylor 59/smu 24.

  200. d1shima September 2, 2012 3:54 pm


    No go there…LizK may be lurking. 😉

  201. mctruck September 2, 2012 3:57 pm

    DPK….all I gotta say is…you one good man; peace and affection from Texas.

  205. Da Punchbowl Kid September 2, 2012 4:01 pm

    d1 –

    I was watching the “crawl” graphics at the bottom of the screen during the game and saw Jantz’s numbers. Just imagine…

  206. d1shima September 2, 2012 4:02 pm


    If nuttin else, you gotta love sayin’ bruddahs name! 🙂

  207. d1shima September 2, 2012 4:03 pm

    0-40 in the 3rd quartah…..

    “Steele” get “Jantz”! 😆

  208. Da Punchbowl Kid September 2, 2012 4:04 pm

    Not to mention he looks like a greek God… 😆

  209. d1shima September 2, 2012 4:05 pm

    uhhhh….OK, DPK.

    (please turn in your Man Card when you leave)

  210. d1shima September 2, 2012 4:06 pm

  211. Da Punchbowl Kid September 2, 2012 4:11 pm

    I was quoting another poster here who saw Jantz at Costco one time… SteveM would remember that post, try ax ’em- he goin’ remember… go – go ax ’em. Da oddah poster in question was real man too, IIRC.

  212. G-money September 2, 2012 4:12 pm

    Buck Matt Farkley! I don’t care who you are, or what game you’re playing, you NEVER, EVER EVER say such a thing like, “It felt like we could have scored 100 points in the first half.” At least not publicly you don’t.

    Crap like that should be taken into consideration when the downtown athletic club is to decide who is deserving of the Heisman trophy. His rant with his receiver wasn’t forgiving either, although the stupid PAC-12 commentators made all that were listing think it was ok for him to be doing (in response to Lee’s ‘throw it higher’ gesture earlier in the game).

    Straight horse-poop from the top-ranked team in the nation. Good, yes, but not worthy of the ranking. Not with their play, their actions, and words. Straight horse-poop.

    Anyone out there want to take my action? I’ll bet anyone out there that USC is NOT going to win the National Championship!

    and in anticipation of all you warrior haters, notice i’m not touting our performance so save your attempts to put our warriors down… I’m straight hating on SC right now… because they ASKED for it. meanwhile, our warriors were ALL CLASS in defeat. all class period.

  213. G-money September 2, 2012 4:17 pm

    And take a closer look at their coach, Kiffin… I know it ain’t just me that noticed his challenge of the 4th down spot (which he clearly lost as the official needed all of 10 seconds to ‘confirm the spot’), his claim that his kicker is hurt (then why attempt the FG just before the half?) as to why he continued to unsuccessfully try and not make a 2pt conversion (three consecutive times), and his players’ lack of discipline (throat slash penalty which everyone KNOWS is unsportsmanlike).

    reading between the lines… that man is a child (37yrs old). grow up Kiffin so your players don’t look like fools. Cuz the buck starts and stops at the top. You mean to tell me he doesn’t have another kicker on his team that can make a PAT?

    USC’s garbage… frankly I don’t see how anyone can think or believe otherwise.

  214. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 4:21 pm

    I watching the Kardashians. They talking new age – cows with udders, nipple action. Ok, I’m moving to USC, changing teams. I’m going 😎


  215. d1shima September 2, 2012 4:22 pm

    On the (G-)money! 🙂

  216. mo808 September 2, 2012 4:24 pm

    @147. jm2375, l’ll be sitting court side tonight–look for me 🙂 getting there late though I hope before first set. Go Wahine!

  217. G-money September 2, 2012 4:28 pm

    alright d1shima… thanks for the shout-out

  218. obachan September 2, 2012 4:31 pm

    Barkley must be envious of the 50 that the Ducks put up in the 1st half alone. Hope Mariota and Oregon knock the Trojans off their high horse.

  219. mo808 September 2, 2012 4:36 pm

    @232. obachan, I am so looking forward to that game–for that reason!

  220. BigHiloFan2 September 2, 2012 4:42 pm




    whatever else you wanna call yourself,

    why you had to make like dat to Tommui?????

    when you do that, you come across as being really irritating… and you make me feel like you don’t know what you talking about. period. at least the udder negative guys got some nipples on dare spigots. you got …. ummm…. um…. not so good looking spigot….


  221. BigHiloFan2 September 2, 2012 5:00 pm

    of course,

    ytou could make me laugh and go Denzel Washington doing da haka!

    gotta love the Warriors. wish I could be there tomorrow to watch da Coach. but I’ll do my part 9/15, sittin in my seat. eatin da pan lau lau. but more discipline this year. gonna jump on da Chowtrain. 😀

  222. Chicken Grease September 2, 2012 5:35 pm

    Now are you fine people ready for some USC jokes :P?

  223. follower September 2, 2012 5:35 pm

    2 things I noticed at the game:

    1) Noticed Chow did not wear a game lei?

    2)Lame Kiffin getting so pissed in the 4th qtr after his 2nd string frosh went in, something happened because he went into a rage and threw his clip board!! Then he couldnt find it! Anybody else see this?

    Warriors were a CLASS ACT, all the young guys did really well for a 1st time start and we are going to get better and SHOCK DA WORLD!

  224. lava September 2, 2012 5:50 pm

    A week off, then a scrimmage against Lamar — valuable learning time. Then the season begins.

    Go Warriors.

  225. Ben A Lurker September 2, 2012 6:42 pm

    manoa#1: throw dis bum outta da blog already

  226. Huh? September 2, 2012 7:16 pm

    Proud of the warriors…win or lose. I still believe.

  227. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 7:18 pm

    Ben A Lurker for Boss Man!

  228. ai-eee-soos September 2, 2012 7:32 pm

    … Vaughn Meatoga signed to practice squad by RAIDUZZZZZ …

    it’s in CNNSI; & reported by either or both Rob DeMello / Jamai.

    Good Luck Vaughn …

  229. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 7:42 pm

    Pray, go Wahine!

  230. ai-eee-soos September 2, 2012 7:42 pm

    … Aaron Brown resigned by Rams to practice squad.

    Good Luck Aaron.

    Don’t know if this & # 230 have been posted before.

  232. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 7:46 pm

    I am “flabbergasted” that last point was a Shocka!

  233. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 7:47 pm

    Tough loss Wahine!

  234. RedZone September 2, 2012 8:00 pm

    Damn now I gotta be Raider fan.

  235. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:03 pm

    Watching Coach now, we Learned explosive plays

    We learned about the sick. We learned we did not quit. Love watching and listening to da Siasau crack!!!! I love our Coach!!!!

  236. ai-eee-soos September 2, 2012 8:04 pm

    … If you not watching TV –

    Norm Chow & Kelaula on cable 16. Don’t know if this is a re-run..

  237. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:05 pm

    Scott Harding is really a great player

  238. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:10 pm

    No Quit! We found out we have to look at our schemes. Our plan is to look at [coaches]….

    Darn we got a Akamai coach!

  239. Rodney September 2, 2012 8:17 pm

    Love the effort of the team and love

    Chow and co.# 139 to grade the safety’s

    with a F come on!!!!!! We are so lucky

    that Chow a local boy came to help us!

    Spend some time at the practices and

    see the effort of the coaches and players!!

  240. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:18 pm

    I like Paipai and Schroeder interview now on Oc16

  241. Kekoa September 2, 2012 8:19 pm

    DPK ~

    Sooo many positive comments posted since the end of the game. Most of the fans saw that the team was doing their best, and that’s what counts. Not so for one individual…

    I think Manoa#1 will never get it because he’s obviously NOT from here, and never learned to respect others. Besides, he’s got his own toilet words for people he feels are inferior to him. He does remind me of the other guy (Steve) who the blog boss let stay for far too long. I just hope he doesn’t wait so long this time.

  242. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:25 pm


    Good descriptive word ST.

    And you right, bad pidgin is bad pidgin

  243. kitsunegari September 2, 2012 8:28 pm

    Another bloghost needs hits on her blog so Steve Imai will stick around for much longer. just be glad most people here have social lives and real people to interact with outside their computer.

  244. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:32 pm

    PAC 12 Refs. thought so.

    learning curve? no way! Not Coach!

    Rerun on OC 16 now. Go Coach!

  245. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:39 pm

    If that’s you

    Steve Imai

    calling yourself all kinda names, Asahi,Manoa1,

    and making anykine to good people, shame shame

  246. kruzen September 2, 2012 8:39 pm

    Norm Chow Inside Access on ch 16. I’m not sure if this is a replay.

  247. kitsunegari September 2, 2012 8:41 pm

    Mr. Hilo Fan 2,

    Same old smell. Wahine have one bad night and same thing. Demanding questions to coach shoji, saying the players no need rest and need to practice hard tomorrow and no days off. accusations of being arrogant and not caring about the match same thing. hossana on his highest. dumbarse..

  248. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:48 pm

    Yah, same smell,

    And you is right, we lucky we got real coaches!

  249. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 8:59 pm

    No way F grade for Safeties.

    But da best news? 1. Da camera angle on ST… making him look Good!!! 2. Da Warriors angry

    Afta da game . Dats good!

  250. SAWARRIOR September 2, 2012 9:04 pm

    #241 i don’t wear rose colored glasses.

  251. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 9:05 pm

    We have a tremendous staff…

    just love our team.

  252. PowderPuff September 2, 2012 9:08 pm

    Glad OC16 is showing “Inside Access” multiple times, especially for those of us who went to the Wahine game. Wow, it’s starting AGAIN! We can watch this show all night. 🙂 Looking good, ST!

    Don’t forget the Nā Koa Coach’s Luncheon tomorrow at The Willows…see you there!

  253. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 9:13 pm

    I know what coach means about correcting schemes.

    corners, lbs, safeties,…. work hard coaches, nO quit,

    That includes the coaches, no quit!

  254. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 9:15 pm

    Hiya powder puff. Bestest to Stretch, you picked up on St too? 😀

  255. Supastoke September 2, 2012 9:17 pm

    Rest up Warriors, Cheeehooo!!!!

  256. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 9:17 pm

    What in the hell? That green screen background looks downright horrible.

    A big UH logo and a potted plant would look better.

  257. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 9:18 pm

    I’m watching the reruns until … Next year… 😀

  258. mo808 September 2, 2012 9:20 pm

    @254. PowerPuff, see you at the luncheon tomorrow! Go Warriors!!

  259. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 9:22 pm

    Btw, just read the comments directed towards Tommui and DPK by manoa#1.

    Totally classless.

  260. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 9:22 pm

    Wow. Coaches gonna catch a high school game or 2 this weekend. Don’t try convince yourself coach not thinking recruiting. Oww if you projecting that.

  261. kev-1 September 2, 2012 9:29 pm

    Not feeling a lot of things about the Coach’s show. But, I know that our blog host is a part of it, so I’ll keep my mouth shut.

    I liked seeing ST on there. And his piece was good and entertaining.

  262. Big Hilo Fan2 September 2, 2012 9:29 pm


    Watching Demo, listening to him, dat is a local accent I wat?

  263. kev-1 September 2, 2012 9:35 pm

    I bet you when manoa#1 told a couple of posters to f themselves, he was jumping around with his shirt off flexing to his computer. At least that’s what I envision a hot headed, knuckle head doing.

    I know that was earlier, but gotta relax on the personal attacks braddah. Nothing wrong with people hoping the best for their home team.

    I picked UH to win, not thinking they would, but because that is my team and I’d pick them to win the Pittsburgh Steelers if I could.

  264. kev-1 September 2, 2012 9:36 pm

    win against the Steelers that is

  265. kev-1 September 2, 2012 9:36 pm

    Harding’s pidgin was funny as heck

  266. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 9:37 pm

    ST’s part on the was good fun. But again, lose the green screen. It’s awful. Blue and neon green background (O_o)

  267. walter September 2, 2012 9:51 pm

    good news – vaughn and aaron, real warriors, #189 – really?

  268. Hapamike September 2, 2012 10:09 pm

    The Warriors were better in the second half. I think we’ve always had coaches who weren’t good at making half time adjustments, but so far, it looks like Norm Chow might be different. Yeah the score was lopsided, and there were a few huge errors, but all in all I felt they did well. The #1 team in the country here folks. Good Job Warriors!

  269. PowderPuff September 2, 2012 10:17 pm

    Hello big fella…BHF2: how you stay? Stretch and I going to MetLife Stadium this week…we’ll try to leave some bad juju for Lame Kiffen. 🙂 Buwahahaha! Yes, mo808…see you there tomorrow!

  270. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 2, 2012 10:34 pm

    Might be a little hard to watch for some but this is some inside access stuff that USC put together right after the UH game.

  271. Slugger September 2, 2012 11:40 pm


    Answer to 1) ~ Coach Chow was given a lei by my hula sister (taken by Kim of Na Koa to LA). She said he told her he would wear it before the game, probably not during, and after the game. I didn’t see it on him during the interview after the game. My hula sister has been making ti leaf lei for the Coaches for ??? long. Mack wore them.

    My hula sister might be at lunch tomorrow, so maybe we’ll get more info from the Coach.

    mo808, PP, see you at the lunch tomorrow!


  272. WarriorNY September 3, 2012 12:02 am


    How long are you and Stretch in NY? Enjoy MetLife, it’s pretty awesome…

  273. Chicken Grease September 3, 2012 12:03 am

    For those Tsai-kos who are dissatisfied with the Board of Regents’ actions/lack of actions with respect to President Greenwood, you have several options to take:

    1) Write a letter to the BOR President Eric Martinson expressing your concerns;

    Not feeling a lot of things about the Coach’s show. But, I know that our blog host is a part of it, so I’ll keep my mouth shut.

    I liked seeing ST on there. And his piece was good and entertaining..

    Here is a classic example about how my parents are good UH fans:

    They had a chance for a *free* trip to Vegas–free air because my sister works for Hawaiian, free room at the Cal from me–but they turned that down because they cannot miss a UH home game. Even though UH is playing a D-IAA school and lost yesterday, they can’t miss a UH home game. Especially because it is the opener and they want to bring pan lau lau to the Tsaiko tailgate.

  282. Nike Mercurial Vapor 8 September 3, 2012 12:58 am

    Wow. Coaches gonna catch a high school game or 2 this weekend. Don’t try convince yourself coach not thinking recruiting. Oww if you projecting that..

    garret…are you guys planning any tailgate stuff for sdsu game?

  287. al September 3, 2012 1:39 am

    jeezy33…yah, i saw the 4wide or 3wide plus one.

    these days every offense has some type of rns or spread formaions college and pro.

    i believe we played as well as we hoped for.

    i believe we were both on the same page with our pre-game and post game assessment of where we’d might be and will be in the weeks to come.

    i am looking forward to watching this program develop over the years to come, on and off the field.

  288. al September 3, 2012 1:41 am

    forgot about the na koa lunch tomw.

    already committed to a major “honey do list”. oh well, got to suck up during the bye week and i should be good for the remainder of the season. especially if a road trip is in the plans.

    nice job by robert k. with the two coach chow shows.

    nice to see how that personal camraderie between the big guy and tsai has even spilled over into this show.

    nice job to the big birdie and the littler birdie.

    Hey guys…

    Bill Belichick on Greg Salas…

    What the team liked about Salas. Belichick touched on Greg Salas’ versatility (he has played inside and outside) and sure hands as a few things that Salas does well, while also noting his production in college and in limited action last season with the Rams. “We scouted him coming out of Hawaii and followed him last year. We had a good feel for him,” Belichick said, adding that offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels’ input from his time in St. Louis was helpful.

  291. WarriorNY September 3, 2012 2:15 am

    I also enjoy reading the comments…

    Here’s some more…

    I think we’ve always had coaches who weren’t good at making half time adjustments, but so far, it looks like Norm Chow might be different.

    ??? I know that I saw a LOT of excellent adjustments made at halftime in quite a few UH games under JJ and Tomey, and saw a great example of Coach Tomey’s SJSU team (the last time UH played at SJSU when Coach Tomey was head coach there) almost beating UH due to adjustments Coach Tomey made. UH had much better players, Coach Tomey had 2 QBs who couldn’t pass, but his adjustments almost pulled the game out. I was at that game cheering for UH.

    A good example of UH playing better after halftime adjustments was the 2006 Hawaii Bowl–UH was down 10-3 at halftime but won the 3rd quarter 21-0 against a Pac-10 team. I was at the game at it was awesome to see Arizona State’s secondary picked apart like that.

    If we look at the facts for 3rd quarter scoring against D-IA teams, we have this stat:

    2006: +106

    2007: +14

    2008: -56

    2009: -77

    2010: +2

    2011: -10

    2012: +3 (1 game, good start so far for Coach Chow)

  300. Garret September 3, 2012 3:52 am


    Don Weir already posted about an event that he’s organizing at a restaurant for before the UH-SDSU game. I think that sounds like something I want to go to and I’d rather go to a UH-affiliated event then make a separate one.

    I understand how challenging it is to generate money through the web should you not possess the right online business or offer that makes income. Owning only one income stream on the internet is not easy to depend on. You may possibly end up with very few sales with one business or you could have big sales with another source of income. Owning a mixture of both big and small profit streams is really worth while because then when you do get sales from various sources, there is a good stream of income coming in and you are even more likely to stay with it in the long-term. Our high paying online business pays us many different levels which makes this an exciting online business to rely on. Million Dollar Marketing Business is our big ticket business wealth system.

    Mahalo for the links to the Salas trade. At least you will have a better chance of seeing him play. He’s always been a terrific kid to watch as he matured into the NFL receiver he is today.

    Go Greg!

  303. Big Hilo Fan2 September 3, 2012 4:29 am

    Good morning Tsaikos

    The best memory from the USC game was the

    I believe in moment, I Believe in destiny…


    wondering how Jones,Raûscher and the rest gonna adjust

  305. WarriorNY September 3, 2012 4:53 am


    I’ll sure enjoy seeing him play but honestly Salas as a slot for the New England Patriots offense will be scary. My NY Jets better up their game… It’ll be great to see Salas in an offense like that. Great kid that works really hard. Maybe he’ll be Welker’s replacement and end up playing a game back in Hawaii in the pro bowl in a couple years… I hope he succeeds tremendously(especially when he’s not playing the Jets or Giants)…

    43 straight days of no rain. Looks like it will continue until next Sunday.

    It will get back to the 80’s on Wednesday — 1st day for the kids.

    What do you mean?

  311. wafan September 3, 2012 5:22 am

    Checked the OC16 site. No link to the program. Is there a different site I should visit to watch the program?

    Hope everyone has a super day of rest, relaxation and fun. Well, if you have the day off anyhow.

  315. Wes'side Warrior September 3, 2012 5:27 am

    Howzit, everyone!

    Wanted to write stuff yesterday, but was fighting big time food poisoning, and had no energy for anything else. Feeling better now.

    I’ve decided not to feed any dumbazz trolls, especially here.

    I am really excited about this team. Young and motivated. Wanting and learning to improve, and pissed off about the game. Mistakes here and there. Could it have changed the momentum at any point? Sure. But they fought to the end… didn’t hang their heads from before halftime. So many positives. In that regard, we did Shock Da World. Those “told-you-so” prophets all expected a 60+ point blowout. Your boy, Kiffen sure as heck tried. Going for it how many times on 4th down, even with 4th and 18 near the end of the game? Going for 2 after every TD, using a “hurt kicker” as his excuse… and then going for FG’s? C’mon, man. And don’t give me any crap about calling off the dogs. I hope all you who bet against our Warriors lost money! Hahaha!

    Kudos to so many, especially Harding and Schroeder! Better get those Harding jerseys… gonna be hot sellers this year!

    Thinking… as much punishment as Schroeder took, looks like the knee brace did it’s job.

    Okay, back to drinking more water and rehydrating. Have a great, safe Labor Day, gang!

    Probably should. Winter forecast is for wet and cold. Might really need it come Spring. River flooding might be really bad next year.

    Good Morning All! Happy Labor Day!

  320. mo808 September 3, 2012 6:02 am

    Set my alarm for six today so I could catch the Inside Access! Great show! ST & Kekaula are terrific with their banter. I really liked ST’s segment on the diversity of the team!

  321. d1shima September 3, 2012 6:27 am

    Great Morning All!

    Mahalo to all for the heads-up on the Inside Access show. Missed it but will catch the next replay.


    Schedule shows 10:30 tonight (Hawaii time)….sowwy, kinda late for you 🙁

  322. d1shima September 3, 2012 6:31 am

    WDoc and other Manoa Watchers,

    At least a half dozen of the coaches who signed the petition have told people they felt “pressured” to sign the document by other UH coaches, sources said. (No kidding? What a surprise!)

    Bonnyjean Manini, the head of the UH Manoa faculty senate who also serves on the search panel, said the process already looks and smells unfair.

    “There is a foul on the play and it is foul-smelling as well,” said Manini…

    (serious situation but maybe the Manoa faculty might wanna look at their choice for spokesperson! “Manini said…” 😆 )

  323. Pomai September 3, 2012 6:38 am

    WOW for the first time I looked at that volleyball blog, jezzz what a bunch of losers who post there.

  324. LizKauai (iPad) September 3, 2012 6:40 am

    So good to be home!

    Vacay was awesome… Great family time, CC time with wafan and Izzy, seeing our buys play well in the most intimidating (but not really hostile- this place was not afraid) venue for their first game, meeting Chancellor Keith and seeing Rich and the Tsai-ko tour ccord in the crowd at the Rose Garden UH Gate…enjoying the intensity of the USC traditions and amazing student spirit (sure helps to have the field close to the campus!).

    The best part was about the kids.

    Highlights- being with my friends the Markowitz’s to see Abe take the field again after 2 years of injury rehab, meeting Schroeder, Edwards and Iosefa ohana and catching them in video… And watching our boys play hard with minimal injuries and sillyness.

    Now I feel good about the Warriors and this season.

  325. LizKauai (iPad) September 3, 2012 6:42 am

    Durn. Forgot how to add emphasis….


  326. Poonie in OC September 3, 2012 6:44 am

    I’m an SC fan and “closet” Warrior fan for a long time since family moved to Hawaii. Kind of got to know Coach Chow privately when he was at SC. He is a great coach and human being.

    Here’s how Chow thinks:

    His 50/50 run pass really only happens because we would be up and he runs at the end of the game (other than the Bush/LenDale White era…not that it exists anymore)

    Other teams run to establish the pass. He passes to establish the pass.

    He likes to throw wide short passes to spread the defense. Then he runs, then he passes to attack the seams in the D. We saw that in the 3rd quarter.

    Give him time to recruit a big beast TE with hands that can run and running backs that catch.

    The quarterbacks will keep coming.

    He is the master at 2nd half adjustments.

    The Warriors are gonna be great and fun to watch.

    it is not same smell different crap.

    P.S. SC fans hate the stupid 2 point fakes, too.

  327. LizKauai (iPad) September 3, 2012 6:44 am

    mo808- what channel was Inside Access on? Dang.

  328. LizKauai (iPad) September 3, 2012 6:47 am

    Hi Poonie in OC. welcome to the blog!

  329. LizKauai (iPad) September 3, 2012 6:54 am

    Yup. Coach Chow’s methiods are well known. I wa sitting with the USC player families during the game and was entertained and irritated by a “knowitall” young fan behind us who commented loudly all game long. He called many of the Hawaii plays before they happened. He was also from Tenn. and was obsessed about Mike Edwards.

    That part was especially irritating but in the end I was proud of Hawaii… Land of second chances. Believe in the kids. Help them, encourage them get up again when they fall.

    Go Warriors!

  330. Poonie in OC September 3, 2012 6:58 am

    Thanks Liz. Probably hard to tell in the low corner end zone we stick you in but we actually sometimes boo the 2 point fakes.

  331. mo808 September 3, 2012 7:00 am

    Liz welcome back! OC 16. Get replays of volleyball all day today, next Inside Access like D1 said not till 10:30pm Hawaii Time tonight!

  332. Buffoman September 3, 2012 7:00 am

    I don’t know if the safeties graded “F” but their were, in my opinion very bad. Their angle to make plays were just bad and there seem to be some confusion in help coverage on their part. I am no expert but it sure looked like they were out of sync… and their tackling technique still needs improvement.

    I will say that the tackling by the defensive front 7 was much improved over what we saw last year. No more running into the opponent and expecting them to fall down tackling. Our guys were doing a much better job wrapping up.

    Oh, if ever there was a time when names in the back of jersey was needed, it was this game. The announcers just butchered the names.

    Coach Chow is really bringing a higher level of professionalism and expectation of players personal performance to the team. The selfish “I” is definitely absent in this team effort. Refreshing.

  333. BigHiloFan2 September 3, 2012 7:14 am

    Good morning Tsaikos.

    in honor of da workers, good morning Latinos!
