    Top 10 today!
    Well, I was lurking and could have been fourth..but I had to update my page with tom-warriornation’s “last call” for Ohio game tickets. Then a nap…

  7. A-House July 9, 2015 12:45 pm

    thanks for the suggestion, but “overhead” is not the word or phrase used

  8. 3-Prong July 9, 2015 12:48 pm

    SteveM: Can you repost your link. Having a hard time getting to it. Thanks.

  9. A-House July 9, 2015 12:54 pm

    bigger, stronger, faster, quicker

    what makes Power 5 schools athletes better to push others around? facilities? don’t think so – 100 # weights are the same regardless of location- size is the same – 6′ 4″ and 300 lbs is still 6′ 4″ and 300 lbs

    does it come down to the “intangibles” of human nature? trainer’s knowledge/skills/ experience?

    hmmmm. what is it???

    A-House — yup, the intangible of striving for an inch. Al Pacino said it best:

    In my gambling days, a long time ago, I remember a game in which Kenny Stabler stayed in the end zone with the ball with seconds left in the game and the Raiders leading by 3, then ran out of the end zone for a safety giving the other team 2 points. I took the Raiders and lost the spread by 1 point. One of the reasons that I quit gambling a long time ago. R.I.P Kenny Stabler.

    I remember an interview of Coach Madden in which he gave an anecdote about Ken Stabler. In a game, Stabler suddenly and inexplicably called a time out. Picture Madden’s histrionics as Stabler approached him. “Why the heck did you call a timeout?”, Madden ranted. He said Stabler took of his helmet, looked up at the sky, and replied, “Nice day, isn’t it coach?”

    Madden ans Stabler made history.
    RIP Kenny Stabler.

  15. Tazer July 9, 2015 5:12 pm

    I want to pay tribute to the “Snake” Ken Stabler . Which made plays out of nothing and in creatable play making. And watch him in person at Supper Bowl XI in the Rose Bowl, work his magic to perfection.. R.I.P. “Snake 12”

  16. 3-Prong July 9, 2015 5:23 pm

    Thanks SteveM.

    I am sad to report that Jerry “Snake” Scanlan (Iolani ’75) passed away today. The only thing bigger than his 6’7″ frame was his heart. Defensive Player of the year in Football, and player of the year in basketball. Old timer will remember when the ILH schools litterally filled the HIC (Blaisdell) to the rafters for basketball. “The Snake Pit” for Iolani, was followed by the “Cock Pit”, Mongoose Den” for other schools, can’t remember but each school had a catchy name. Mean school spirit that year…..all started from the great Jerry Scanlan. Played for UH and had brief stints in the NFL,…..Redskins I think. Rest In Peace Jerry.

  19. Inyoface July 9, 2015 7:24 pm

    Can’t wait to see the Wittek to Kemp combo. Kemp should have a break out season with this new offense installed.

    Anyone know when the Colorado game was moved to 7P? wasn’t it at 3P?

  21. cappie the dog July 10, 2015 4:23 am

    The flag is down.

  22. boolakanaka July 10, 2015 7:24 am

    Toast and RIP to your team and classmate 3prong—he was a great player, and an even better person and bruddha. Holomua to the other side snake!

    cappie #20:

    I also agree that the “battle flag” should be lowered at South Carolina.

    It was and still is too many in the deep South as a symbol of “whatever they want to call it” – to many others it as an unwelcome symbol of other “un-nice” things in our Country’s history – one must travel or live in the deep South to feel the strong opinion of the truthfulness of the Civil War as they see it how much they still hate all the “carpet-baggers” who came into their territory after the war

    I found it interesting in my freshman history class at UH that the text’s author’s never mentioned that “slavery” was a primary cause for the Civil War – we had a great debate in Farrington Hall – interestingly, many haole students agreed with our position

    many accept the premise that “college” is the place for open-mindedness and time to explore/challenge many things most people accept without question – I remember in my “religion class” I mentioned that there is NO proof that what is written in the Bible were actually the words of Jesus because the Bible was actually written in Europe when “romanticism” the ruled the world – Professor Aoki didn’t take kindly to my statement and chastised me in front of the entire class – I challenged him to prove it and this, of course, led to a below C grade for the class.

    so much for college life as a student.

    #18 Inyoface – tell me about this “new offense installed” – very interested in what you know.

    In reference to my good friend A-House #23

    I was at a Bible study group last night and got a couple of semi-dirty looks when I mentioned that the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) was written and revised and revised and revised over a thousand years. Of course the New Testament was written about seventy years after the fact, in Aramaic and later translated into Greek and from Greek to English – and revised several times – ever saw “Lost in Translation”?

    The battle flag of the Confederacy – the South really left the Union on the question of States rights aad not slavery. BUT it became a symbol of repression of the blacks.
    It is akin to the religious symbol of the crooked cross which was religious in nature but turned into a cruel repressive symbol by Adolf Hitler.
