The Man Show

The past couple of years, guys tried to find a way to sneak into Heather McMackin’s football clinic for women. Now UH is floating the idea of having a clinic for male football fans. Like Heather McMackin’s clinic, this workshop would be held at both the Stan Sheriff Center and Ching Athletic Complex. And it would include video demonstrations and tips from the UH coaches. Details still are being finalized.

Terry Brennan said his son — a guy who used to be a quarterback here a few years ago — will be training in Arizona during the break. That means no Hawaii working-vacation this year.

    Football clinic for guys? OK, I’ll go, but I don’t want to go alone… 😆 😛 🙄

    “I am not trying to bribe you but I am the athletic director of the University of Georgia,” Damon Evans said after being pulled over for DUI, according to the officer identified in the report as M. Cabe.

    The officer also said that Evans asked to be taken to a motel instead of jail or to be let off with a warning. According to the report, Evans later said: “I am not trying to bribe you, but is there anything you can do without arresting me?”

    In the report, the officer noted he found a “red pair of lady’s panties between [Evans’] legs.” When he asked Evans, a 40-year-old married father of two children, what he was doing with the underwear, Evans said: “She took them off and I held them because I was just trying to get her home,” according to the report.

    Aiya! I predict he will be gone by Wednesday and no later.

  25. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2010 9:51 am

    Uh, oh.
    Just realized this might be like at the movies, where two guys always have an empty seat in between. That’ll make the turnout look larger.

  26. A-House July 3, 2010 9:52 am


    does that mean the owner of the “red panties” was still in his car?

  27. A-House July 3, 2010 9:53 am

    Ok, ST, when I mentioned “character” I was not alluding to trickery” in #25 – what turnout?

  28. SteveM July 3, 2010 9:53 am

    ST — maybe we can sneak in ladies and dates… 🙂

  29. Stephen Tsai July 3, 2010 9:54 am

    Turnout for the football clinic.

  30. Shoko July 3, 2010 9:57 am

    Yep, 28-year old Courtney furhmann was with him. She also told the cop, “Just to let you know, it will be erased because he is the athletic director of UGA and he has that power,”. 🙂

  31. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 10:03 am


    Wow.. Damon Evans was about to make 550,000 a year on a new 5-year contract… but now UGA has this predicatment…

    UGA is in an interesting position. Evans, who took over for longtime A.D. Vince Dooley, has helped the department make financial strides and has reduced what many insiders considered to a bloated staff. Moreover, Evans is a former Bulldog football player and was the SEC’s first African-American A.D. Unfortunately, that immediately makes race an issue, and when race is involved nothing is ever simple.

    but this might keep the NAACP at arms length..

    The 40 year old Evans, who is married with two children, is in more than just legal trouble. He was accompanied by a 28 year old woman, Courtney Furhmann, who was also arrested, charged with disorderly conduct. Evans, who was caught with the woman’s underwear in his lap, admitted that he and Furhmann were romantically involved. These circumstances complicate matters for all involved as personal conduct and morality come into play. Though not against the law, it is certainly something the university must take into account.

    I’m sure, though, he’ll land almost as good a job elsewhere once his divorce is settled and the fines paid.

  32. Da Punchbowl Kid July 3, 2010 10:07 am

    Boy, I’ll say it sure sucks to be Damon Evans right about now!

    Thats the job and the wife gone in one fell swoop. Sad to read about this.

  33. Shoko July 3, 2010 10:09 am

    Yea, I agree. That ‘other’ woman part kind of blew me away tho. On second thought, he might be gone by Monday. Divorce be filed no later than Wednesday. 🙂

  34. ai-eee-soos July 3, 2010 10:30 am

    heyyy – mebbe herminn frazier will apply for that job.

    after all, he was the supposed ad at uab.

    i wonder how far his application would progress, if he were to apply.

  35. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 3, 2010 10:32 am

    Why not have one football clinic for folks who don’t know much about the game & want to learn the basics and another one for people who have been following the game for some time and want to get more detailed information rather than just sorting out participants by gender?

    Two years ago and even a year ago, I would definitely have been in the first group. However, over the past year, my knowledge base has gone up exponentially because I’ve taken the time to read & listen to experts as well as to watch recorded games so that I can go back & get my questions answered about strategies and why they succeeded or failed.

    Am I now an expert? Of course not; however, I feel that I am ready to move into an intermediate level of learning about the game. In fact, I already have my 2010 portfolio set up and ready to start taking notes.

    There are certainly other women regulars on this blog who are at the same level and even a couple who could go on a football game show and take first place. There are also one or two guys who’ve been at T-Gates who were honest enough to admit that about the only thing they understood was when a team scored a touchdown or had a pass intercepted.

    Perhaps the coaches could figure out a way to offer a third clinic. I’d be willing to pay up to $25 to attend one.

    NOTE TO OTHER HEAD COACHES: Why not offer similar clinics for fans in your sport as well. It’s a great way to generate both support not to mention a little bit of money.

  36. MichiganWarrior July 3, 2010 10:58 am

    They can “rent” me for that UGA job. That machine is making money all by itself already. I’ll step in and act and look all official, with a “Southern” translator accompanying me on all tours of facilities, etc.

  37. pakegolf July 3, 2010 10:58 am

    Agree with C/WDoc #35. Would be interesting on understanding how the play calling (offense or defense) is made depending on the opponent or situation. We usually only notice things after-the-fact.

  38. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 11:00 am


    I dunno.. I’d hate to be a high profile school looking for an AD right about now. With Frazier and Evans, two highly visible minority AD’s gone, there might be greater scrutiny over the next hiring just about anywhere in D1.

  39. MichiganWarrior July 3, 2010 11:03 am

    #35 Doc… To take it further, how about really directing this to the student body who have no clue when it comes to football? If they are gonna be paying an Athletics fee, they might as well become knowledgeable of the game so they can attend and not look lost! I’d love to see a few thousand [EXTRA] college-age kids in the stands every home game for every sport! That’s how we build our fan base!!!

  40. Shoko July 3, 2010 11:03 am

    That’s a good idea. In fact, I wouldn’t mind if Donovan would give a workshop involving the administrative/logistical aspect of a college sports program. But, I guess, I could get my education from this blog. Some of you’s people are pretty smart. 🙂

  41. Shoko July 3, 2010 11:07 am

    Eh, looks like everyone is shooting for the UGA AD job now!

  42. MichiganWarrior July 3, 2010 11:08 am

    So, we’ll need FAN Clinics to teach those interested in the major sports: Football, Basketball, Baseball/Softball, Volleyball, Soccer, and any others that students may be interested in learning about. Grow our fan base!!!

  43. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 3, 2010 11:33 am

    Actually, the women’s clinics the past couple of years have had a nice mix of ages – including UH students. However, directing a clinic’s focus towards students would be a winner for the athletic program’s growth. Good idea to include in the activity fee.

    Three years ago, I had no idea how important the defense is in any sport except maybe baseball & its pitching skills. Now I really appreciate what I’ve learned about defensive strategies in football, basketball, and volleyball.

    If someone from the AD administrative staff or coaching staff in any sport could weigh in with a comment or observation on offering more clinics, I’d like to hear from them.

  44. bb July 3, 2010 11:37 am

    How’s about educating those certain fans in both the SSC AND Aloha Stadium that standing and making noise (during appropriate times) is okay.

    I can post sections and seat numbers if needed.

  45. Garret July 3, 2010 11:39 am

    Terry Brennan said his son — a guy who used to be a quarterback here a few years ago — will be training in Arizona during the break. That means no Hawaii working-vacation this year.

    ST is correct about this of course. For those interested in Colt’s full offseason plan, this article I posted to the blog last week has the info. Colt is going to Arizona so that he can train with McNabb…Colt has previously trained with McNabb in Arizona even *before* McNabb was traded to Washington.

    Brennan plans to take a week off to return home to California and go fishing with his father. He will then return to Redskins Park to train before reuniting with McNabb in Arizona in July. It’s been an exhausting offseason, but Brennan has new coaches to impress and a team to try to make.

  46. Garret July 3, 2010 11:41 am

    I think that more clinics would be good–it sure sounds like a good way to build the fan base. An intermediate or advanced level clinic would be a nice supplement to the clinic that goes over the basics like they have been doing.

    One thing that I would like for the clinic to cover is *when* fans are supposed to make noise. I hate sitting in the UH section for road trips and see UH fans make a lot of noise while UH’s QB is trying to call out the signals and then stay quiet when the other team is on offense.

  47. ai-eee-soos July 3, 2010 11:44 am

    # 41. agreed.

    But I’m surprised that the job paid “only” 550K ( plus perks, I assume).

    I thot that an sec school of uga’s stature would pay way more than that.

    guess we’ll see, what we shall see.

  48. MichiganWarrior July 3, 2010 12:05 pm

    That’s what I’m talking about! If we can get our student body organized and educated on the many nuances of being a fan in different sports, they can surely turn into a force themselves. I’m sure we’ve noticed how crazy the (student) fans of Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and so many other schools seem to be so disciplined during games that are televised. We can do the same thing and really give our teams a boost when needed during our games!
    I love how a plan is born and comes together!!!
    Go, Tsaikos!!!

    UH is floating the idea of having a clinic for male football fans.

    Fantastic idea! Lots of football fans have some knowledge of the games – some more knowledge than others – but maybe they should start at the bottom level to get a really firm foundation.

    After all, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Like trying to learn calculus without knowing a little about algebra.

  53. tom mui July 3, 2010 12:39 pm

  55. d1shima July 3, 2010 12:57 pm

    On the fence about a “male clinic” this season.
    Will there be an ample supply of armchairs available?
    There’s certain to be an abundance of “quarterbacks” attending.

    Okay, I’ll start the questions for the beginner’s class.

  58. pride July 3, 2010 1:08 pm

    Why is it called football?

  59. pride July 3, 2010 1:09 pm

  62. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 1:12 pm

    Do we have any former Warriors playing in the Arena Football League?

  63. SteveM July 3, 2010 1:12 pm

    pride. — is that your way of asking me to go with you to the clinic? OK, I failed calculus… but I’m not sitting between you and d1 unless we got 8 seats…. 🙂

  64. pride. July 3, 2010 1:13 pm

    I heard that quarterbacks are the highest paid football players in the NFL. Why are they paid the most if they’re only worth a quarter of a fullback and half of a halfback?

  65. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 1:17 pm


    I’ll go with you!!!! With my potbelly, I could pass for a guy! I kid you not!

  66. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 1:20 pm

    Cause the side that gives no quarters.. takes no prisoners.. so to prevent your side from losing.. you gotta make sure you always got your quarter back…

  67. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 1:21 pm

    Actually, football should be called tackleball.

  68. SteveM July 3, 2010 1:22 pm

    Thanks <b<gigi— it’s easier for a gal to pose as a guy than vice versa. unless you are DPK, the master of disguise…. 😐

    If guys wear a loose fitting muumuu and wear heavy make up, they can easily pass for a wahine.

  70. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 1:25 pm

    I mean look at Frank DeLima.

  71. pride. July 3, 2010 1:25 pm

    Anyway, was thinking about those pictures of Isaako Sopoaga the other day. That was about 335 pounds of raw muscle. No fat on the guy. Imagine playing against him in rugby? Running into him without padding? Lights out. Literally.

    Don’t feel bad. I started watching football in 1999 and I still am in the 3rd grade as far as the game is concerned.

  75. al July 3, 2010 1:35 pm

    its called football because its origins are from rugby. where kicking the ball through some uprights constitute a method of scoring.

    i would guess that the shape of a modern day american football has been the result of the evolution of the game from a running and kicking to running and shooting (passing that is) game. i am no aeronautical engineer but i would think by design it is easier to pass more accurately with its current design and further than with a typical more rounded rugby ball.

    it takes not one pig’s skin to make a modern day football, since, they are made of leather from cattle/cows.

  76. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 1:35 pm

    I attended the very 1st wahine class, led by Mrs. Mack. I thought it was entertaining, but dwelled too long on family history and the places the couple lived and worked. There wasn’t enough talk about the actual game, and what she told us I already knew.

  77. al July 3, 2010 1:36 pm

    gigi and pride must be the two biggest in their classes.

  78. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 1:37 pm

  85. d1shima July 3, 2010 1:53 pm

    Why 100 yards?

  86. Matt July 3, 2010 1:57 pm

    Because the fullback gotta give all their pay back and the halfback gotta give half back. Quarterback only gotta give one quarter back.

  87. Matt July 3, 2010 2:01 pm

    Why are there tackles on offense?

  88. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 2:02 pm

    Ooops that should have read..

    Cause the side that gives no quarters, takes no prisoners and wins. So to prevent your side from losing.. you gotta make sure you always got your quarter back…

    Although I once got into a fight with three guys because I refused to give some clown a nickel back.

  89. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 2:03 pm

    You’d of figured that after the first fight, I had earned that darn nickel.

  90. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 2:06 pm


    I know .. I know… every time I hear that so-and-so running back gained plus yardage.. I have to wonder why he’s running forward and not running back. Of course there were times in that last two seasons that our guys back there were pretty much running back..wards.

  91. Matt July 3, 2010 2:12 pm


    Well hopefully we get some running “forwards” on our team this year. I’m hoping our guards live up to their name as well.

  92. madeinhawaii July 3, 2010 2:21 pm


    I agree.. I believe we’ve got 4 new O-linemen… 5 if you count by experience in their current positions… That’s pretty scary. Everyone behind the line though has had ample experience. Got to spread the opposing team out early in every game before the line gets tired.

    Defense is tricky too but at least we have a bunch of guys that have had experience in different positions and some success late in the season stopping the run… we also have a couple of additions that could have immediate impact on our ability to penetrate.

    All in all promising but with lots of unknows to address.

    Strange but I’m more comfortable with the 2011 lineup than I am with the 2010…. That’s how confused I am.

  93. pride. July 3, 2010 2:36 pm

    An interesting stat from the 2009 football team is the punting average. Hawaii ranked 46 nationally in net punting, which I think is pretty good. But more importantly is that Hawaii is tied for third nationally in total punts returned. Hawaii only had a total of nine punts returned against them last year for fifteen yards. That is insane. Florida had five. Notre Dame and Central Michigan had eight. Hawaii and Ohio State were tied at nine. I hope that we can keep up the good work in this area, and keep the ball away from the returner. I know that the fans want to see Dunnachie kick away, but this directional punting has a purpose. Dunnachie has three more years and will get better at placing punts. For a freshman that never played a real game before at any level until 10 months ago, I think he did an incredible job. Five and a half more net yards and Hawaii would lead the nation in net punting.

    Still looks good as his words eye view on all Hawaii athletics during that time made the HA enjoyable to read during that golden era of Rainbow Warriors football and basketball !

    Gigi –

    I attended last year’s clinic which had signficantly more information about the game both in terms of explanations as well as handouts. The last part of the clinic consisted of actually going out onto Ching Field and working with players and coaches in specific areas – quarterbacks, offensive line, defensivwe backs, special teams, etc. Much improved over the previous year.

    By the time we got outside, there were a lot of guys there – and about half were fans.

    The original purpose of the women’s clinic was to provide a safe haven for asking “dumb questions” and to keep guys from dominating the Q & A period.

  97. protector July 3, 2010 3:05 pm


    Totally agree with you about the punting. I believe it’ll be one of the team’s strengths. I hope some of the new idiotic punt / kick coverage rules don’t confuse our special teams play or affect it significantly. However, if it gives the team trouble, it should also give opponents & referees trouble.


    I agree with your concerns about the O-Line & some of of the question-marks at other
    positions, but what’s encouraging is the fortified depth and quality at each position. Granted, injuries can throw a monkey-wrench into the works. Naysayers are quick to discount injuries as being excuses, but does anyone really doubt that this team would’ve been been better & played better with a healthy Brashton Satele, Rodney Bradley & a D-Line that was healthy all the way through the season (Paipai, Hanohano, etc.) rather than the inconsistent pass-rush? If there are those that say it wouldn’t have made a difference, they
    are truly obtuse & beyond reason. It hasn’t helped that the projected first string center is out, but the back-ups aren’t too shabby & I really expect someone to step-up. We’ll see. As for the D, there are studs throughout the line-up & I don’t think there’ll be any easy yardage to be made by opposing Offenses, even USC’s or Boise State’s. I hope this is the pay-back and pay-off year. Go Warriors!

    I vaguely recall hearing various coaches speaking after Mrs. Mack spoke at that 1st meeting. Two players even displayed the new uniforms. So, it wasn’t all THAT bad, but it could’ve been better.

    If a 3rd clinic is held, I’ll be sure to attend!

    The women’s clinics were $10 with some “scholarships” available to women on limited incomes who were able to help out with registration, etc.

    For further information, I suggest that you call the Football office on Tuesday. They probably are developing an e-mail list in addition to the official list used for the weekly newsletter sent out by the media office.

    first you had a missed rendezous with st (at your house in fact) and then you had triple date, a loooong breakfast (what ever that is?), with some well respected male bloggers.

    PAPAJOE2 – When I did the search. I found well over 100 definitions for the word HEAD. i selected only the ones dealing with some aspect of leadership. I realized that as I read these various definitions, I knew almost all of them and had used most of them at some point in time – and never mixed them up.

  115. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 5:19 pm

    At the Sunday matinee performance of the opera, most women wear muumuus. That’s why hubby and I attend that show all the time.

    no news is good news dept…

    no news about rgm for some time now. that seems to bode well for his chances. coaches liken his look and talent with davone bess. and that’s a good thing.

    until recently, not much heard about brashton. again he too has a good chance of making it especially with his “hit it if it moves” attitude that he learned from his dad. he’ll also fit in real well as a special teamer.

    not much heard for big john estes either. except that he has been running the center on the second team. here’s some word from the jags site…

    John Estes: Estes is one of the players who could make it easier for the Jaguars to part ways with Brad Meester. I was shocked Estes wound up undrafted, but to the Jaguars benefit it happened. Already Estes is a coaching favorite and is running at center on the second “2nd” team.

  117. al July 3, 2010 5:27 pm

    that’s a lot of material to make a mu’umu’u.

  118. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 5:27 pm


    The word “head” used to mean toilet. But, that’s so old. Do people use that slang word anymore? I haven’t heard it in years.

  119. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 5:29 pm


    Maybe the reason there’s no news is that it is the off-season?

    Actually, in the Army, we called it the Latrine. But whenever I was stationed on a navy base, we called it “The Head”.

  122. gigi-hawaii July 3, 2010 5:34 pm


    Funny it is called the head, when it concerns the bottom of the human anatomy!

  123. al July 3, 2010 5:39 pm

    hahahaha….good one gigi.
    but no, that was not what i intended.

    i meant no news is good news…you know.

    often times we only hear about the bad news because folks tend to want to read the bad news. it seems that many would rather share another person’s misfortune and misery instead.

    so when you don’t hear much about guys like rgm, brash, estes who are battling it out to make the teams that is good news because they are still on the team.

    get it?

    “head” as in toilet that is was coined before america was discoverd.
    because the ship’s toilet was at the head of the ship.
    so that the splashing waves would naturally “flush” the toilet.

    methinks that chad owens will finally enjoy an illustrious career in the northern most part of northern america as long as he remains healthy. he could become a “cult type hero” there if he keeps returning punts like he did this week.

    This gives him an opportunity to gain the NFL’s attention for the 2011 season. But the CFL, much as we’d like to think, isn’t a farm system for the NFL. A team wouldn’t try to raid a CFL roster during the CFL’s season.

    “Head Coach” The toilet midway between first class and economy on an Airliner.

  136. A-House July 3, 2010 6:53 pm

    This really is a “dead” period for UH football. Players doing their off-season training, 2011 recruiting well on its way and No commitments, yet! Interesting that other schools are securing commitments, but the “local” players seem to be more interested in getting an offer from the mainland. Maybe, they are waiting to see what happens during the 2010 season and then announce their decision(s). If UH does well, a number will commit. If no, they will look elsewhere.

    This is where we draw the line for the Stutzman family where Craig and Billy Rae made their commitment early letting everyone know that they REALLY wanted to be a Warrior and not play UH against the mainland. We don’t think they were concerned how UH will do in the coming year. They justwanted to be a WARRIOR. For that, they have earned the utmost respect of the A-House family. We hope some day that Craig will be able to return to UH as a full time assistant coach.

    And, there is the “Beast” who really wanted to attend UH, but was not offered and chose to attend Weber State for 2 years. His dream came true when HE made the decision to forego a full scholarship to walk-on to his dream and showed the coaching staff they made a mistake 2 years ago. Otherwise, rather than wait another year, we could be watching the Beast tear up 2010 opponents. Goes to show that recruiting is NOT a perfect methodology and few mistakes are made each year. Coaches, “heart” can overcome athletism – always give a 3rd and 4th look at a student athlete who really wants to be a Warrior over a 4 star athlete who is looking for glory.

    What would you guys say have been the positives since McMackin took the helm?

    More emphasis on Academics with positive results?
    More emphasis of recruiting (year long)?
    More emphasis on building relationships with the local high schools and jr. high schools?
    Very positive ‘team’ outlook (not looking down at themselves after 6 straight losses)?
    Mrs McMackin’s clinic?
    Slowly establishing a better balance of backups in every position of the team?

    Study found that most centenarians (people who lived for 100+ years) had a number of genetic variations in common. It also found that 40% of “super-centenarians” (people 110 or older) had 3 specific genetic variants in common. 85% of people 100+ are women, since men tend to be more susceptible to dying of age-related diseases.

    It turns out that Apple has been adding up to 2 bars to its iPhone display that makes its users feel like they have better coverage than they really have. In order to make users feel better when they are seeing fewer bars after Apple displays how many bars they really have, Apple will make the first 3 bars bigger! Apple is spinning this as good for their customers because the first 3 bars will be “easier to see”…but they wouldn’t be making the first 3 bars so big if they had 4 or 5 bar coverage.

    Study found that women who drink more alcohol each day than is in a glass of wine were 70% *less* likely to become obese than women who didn’t drink alcohol at all. However, the more that men drink they higher their average BMI. The difference is theorized to be because women metabolize alcohol differently than men–women bodies actually use more energy to process alcohol than men bodies.

    Since I am a student in New York city, I live one day at a time and I never know when
    I’ll be on my last dollar therefore I need a steady income which is hard to find.
    Being a full time student and working part time is a hassle.there’s not enough hours in a day.
    So I might as well close down the hatch, stock up on water and get ready for something to come.
    Today is a sunny du though. I can open my hatch.
    I found [url=]proactol[/url] a weight loss pill and
    it helps me get that steady income that I’ve been looking for.
    All I have to do is spend a few hours a day on the computer and the rest of the 22 hours focus on school work.
    My architecture major buddies know what I’m talking ’bout.
    Since I take proactol myself due to my not so great weight. I can tell you it’s safe.
