The measurables

Sorry for the delay, but I had a plane to catch.

Plus, I still have difficulty typing the “O,” “L” and “P” keys, which is probably why I should avoid using “plus” in a sentence.

    Besides those listed in the vitals or pictures, whoelse participated from UH. Any guys from past years got the invite?

  2. Stephen Tsai March 23, 2016 1:27 pm

    There were just 11 players.
    That receiver we talked about wasn’t there.
    Some former Warriors came to watch: Sean Schroeder, Mike Milovale, Nate Nasca, to name a few.
    Scouts were enthused when they saw Tui Unga. But he’s not set until the 2018 pro day

  3. Kapahulu March 23, 2016 1:52 pm

    Thanks for the pictures. Best wishes for these former players.

    Any chance Tui Unga gets reps on D during spring practice??? Pass rushing off the edge might actually give the kid a shot in the NFL.

    Afternoon all!!

    Whoa, kinda weird to see and realize Benny Fonua graduated. I swear he was just tearing it up at Kahuku.

    Anyways, glad to see you’re back. I know the walk-on tryouts was a week or two ago while you were still recovering, but any chance we’ll get a report on that?

    Stephen Tsai good to have you back and continued good health!

    remember that the outside heals much faster than the inside — outside may look and feel good, but the inside heals slowly

    rushing to catch a plane does not help the healing process

    somewhat disappointed that the SA did not ask another sports person to take up the slack for you – maybe they did, but——

    ST … WELCOME BACK … hope all is and went well for you …

  13. H-Man March 23, 2016 5:37 pm

    Welcome back ST. I too wondered why no one picked up the slack at the SA. Now I/we fully realize just how much you add to the sports picture on the Hawaii scene. No one comes close to what you do. Aloha and thanks.

    Gener is a stud. too bad he is not 6-3″.

  15. A-House March 23, 2016 7:49 pm

    does it hurt to talk to our representatives and senators on the benefits to support the bill allocating $$$ to UH to cover all the “travel expenses” for other teams in the MWC and BWC?

    talk about a “free” ride to Hawaii – yea, yea, I know it was part of the “deal” to gain conference membership

    then, it behooves UH to do well in many sports and gain entry into another power5 conference – of course, the most attractive is the PAC 12 – thus it behooves all coaches to schedule the heck and beat PAC 12 teams.

    btw, how many MWC BB teams went to the “big dance” and results? only UH advanced to the 32?

    doesn’t hurt to schedule many schools from the BIG 12 conference — if UH gets in and travel subsidy is part of the deal — no worries banana — count on the millions to be gained from TV contracts to offset this – besides, what a recruiting tool for all the schools — playing in Hawaii every other year!!

    that’s why I was hoping UH made the sweet 16 and play well against Kansas — just great exposure!!!

    Steven, so good that you are back, things were not the same without you.

    Okay… I’m a day late, but welcome back… Hope some of the Bows will have a chance to compete at an NFL camp and hopefully land a position with that team.

    Welcome back ST. Happy to see you back at your blog

    Welcome Back ST!

    The Zoo and future Stadium: Wouldn’t the zoo (now that it lost it’s accreditation) be the perfect spot for a stadium/venue? Maybe a 35K expandable up to 40K stadium. Could benefit for all of Honolulu and Waikiki and the UH. Add parking for the Waikiki Shell when the stadium not in use. All the marathons would end there instead. Plus who the heck really goes to the zoos with the internet available now, and the cruelty to animals being displayed, I’m pretty sure tourist are not coming from all over the world to see our zoo which has the exact same animals as their zoos! Makes no sense to even have a zoo, unless it shows only native fauna, animal and rodent species, and maybe educate on invasive species who entered and destroyed the pristine environment. traffic (in and out) would be about the only real issue to deal with but that’s way easier to do then to reroute freeways for a UH Manoa location. And lastly by doing the stadium in waikiki, it will force us to dredge and clean up the Ala Wai which would be a perfect/ideal outdoor environment for all water exercising, training and activities (you know the reason why tourist DO come to Hawaii).

    Sorry to be off topic but just brainstorming out loud…need more football news!
    Go Bows!
