Thursday in Park (Ridge)

• The Warriors practiced for 105 minutes at Park Ridge High in the final regular workout before Saturday’s game. (There is a walk-through tomorrow at West Point.)

    Hi Bulla, the 5 inches of rain we had yesterday in Arlington, TX did not affect us because we are in a higher section of Arlington. Other sections had five feet of water though. Miss you and the Mrs., as well as the other Tsaikos, with the tailgating, fellowship, and karaoke.

    September 9th, 2010 at 4:40 am

    We have 10+ legacy players coming in to West Point for the game and another 8+ coming into Boulder. Former players were seen in abundance on the telethon. They have been contacted for communication purposes, not for solicitations, and they are starting to feel wlecomed back to UH after so long a time of no communications/no recognition/

    There are so many UH supporters on the mainland that feel disenfranchised. After reading the blogs and many of the e-mails it seems as though it is now up to the UH Letterwinners to lead a movement to connect the fans and supporters through a program sanctioned by UH (in some way yet to be discussed/formulated).

    Would like to hear what it would take to get the Alumni involved?

    Like my esteemed colleague koakane sez, its a byootiful morning in Hawaii Nei! A special aloha to our distant Tsaiko cousin, Midnight. Hope your day is a great one. Good to see the bighilo guy up in here too.

    Someday, somewhere in the UH athletics complex, there will be a place of honor for Don Weir. We salute him!

    I suggest that the Warriors include a dedication to our armed forces everywhere when they do the haka at West Point. A Warrior dance to honor Warriors!

    Good morning to one and all!

    I think it was D1 wondering about people like USMA, Michigan Warrior, A-House, KEKOA that went camping, hiking etc.

    The last time I went camping, hiking etc was at Kahuku charging up Hill 409 (I think it was 409).

    Nowdays, if there is no room service, colored TV or A/C, forget it!

    One of the charter goals of the University of Hawaii Letterwinners Club is the support of current and past letterwinners: all sports

    I believe that the goals of the individual team booster groups are the same for their respective sports. Let me be the first to say to all boosters that there is no competition from UHLWC; if we may be able to help a sport in any way we will try. If we can help any past athlete we will give it our best shot. If we may aid a UH booster group let us know.

    Look for the following FB Alums & Letterwinners at West Point

    Ramsey Pederson

    Brian Fitzpatrick

    Bill Boyda

    Murray Cassidy

    Greg Johnson

    Steve Adler (a teammate)

    Rich Ellerson (a teammate)

    Jim Donovan

    Don Weir

    Ed Guyagas (Track and Field)

    Gordon Scruton (Track and Field)

    October 15 Wahine Volleyball vs San Jose The UHAA and the UHLWC will formally recognize and celebrate the UHLWC becoming a chapter of the Alumni Association.

    Be on the Lookout!!

    We have all 15 helmets (full size) that represent the history of UH Football at this time including appropriate paint color and decals. The two leather helmets just arrived to the Kailua house I was told by Auntie Coco.

    Mike Biscotti (Na Koa Board Member and Hoakalei GM) and I met with Pictures Plus’ Kent Untermann to develop an exhibit case (that can travel perhaps once a month) for these helmets. As the project develops and there is a date and time for the collection to be viewed I will let you know.

  44. tom-warriornation September 9, 2010 8:31 am

    Boston808: check with Don Weir ( if he has extra tickets; he will be there–also meeting with his former teammate, Rich Ellerson, HC of Army. Glad to hear you will be there to cheer on the Warriors!

  45. Slugger September 9, 2010 8:36 am


    Glad to hear that the heavy rains are not affecting you and the Mrs. MISS YOU, GUYS!!!

    don weir,

    Mahalo for the work that you do! The Softball Booster Club is chugging along to raise support, and contact alumnae. UH-F doesn’t make it easy, though.

  46. don weir September 9, 2010 8:38 am

    Boston 808

    Tickets that were sent to UH were sold; unused tickets were returned to USMA Athletics otherwise UH pays for the ducats.

    The best option is to buy tickets from USMA Athletics and look for empty seats in Section 103 at Michie Stadium.

    While we are on this topic and looking down the road for future games we need to make an effort to provide outreach to all fans and facilitate ticket purchases via UH. Again, this is part of providing alums and fans a conduit to connect to UH as well as a means to make a contribution to scholarships. If you purchase your tickets from the host school the ticket money stays with the host school; if you purchase your tickets from UH, $10 stays local and goes to the UH Athletic Scholarship account.

    Speaking from past experience we all appreciate the unsung work behind the scenes that always sees you volunteer to make something happen. And isn’t that what many coaches also look for? Players that can make something happen!!

    The processes will get better for all boosters. We must believe that this will happen and we must make it happen.

    When you’re ready, please hold a pot luck for Tsaikos who would like to contribute towards your effort. I think you’ve already seen willingness to help out. Unfortunately, the UH has not taken advantage of that willingness (except in certain cases like the softball team). Since we’re not a group with high economic statuses, we try to make up with a desire to work. Please allow us to help. Meeting at a T-gate at a specified time might work real well.

    From what I gather from one of your people at UHF, the alumni office is trying to compile a mailing list of UH alumni but again, perhaps if they would ask for volunteers to help them look up the yearbooks, phone directories, etc, it would be useful as they are understaffed.

    There were also volunteers for the compliance office but no one bothered to get in touch with them.

    Don’t forget that in the political arena, volunteers goes through voter list and compile information for their candidates such as addresses etc.

    Surely you can get some people from each Class of 1970 to 1979 as an example to go through the yearbooks and get locations of other members of their class.

  57. don weir September 9, 2010 9:11 am


    I had your back as I went in to the website to see that it was form driven and the due date was in August. I am not sure that the Paciolyn System that the UH ticket office uses for away game tickets allows FAX or downloads.

    The access to away game tickets is a topic for discussion in another venue or forum.

    Let me get the helmets and case together. Not to be proprietary but I am at the point of now asking FB Alums to contribute to this, have their name/playing years and jersey number on a small placque mounted on the back of the case.

    Then let us take this ‘on the road’ and use it for awareness and fundraising.

    I look forward to coming to a tailgate. I look forward to seeing all of you at LA Tech; I just need to find out location.

    Speaking of downloads, I was in shock as I was ready to download my Continental Boarding pass to see I could put the bar code into my PDA and I could use it at the security gate. It saved me 1.5 hours at LAX as I was coming ‘out East’.

    Last Call: I did a search/find for the word Inouye and found no reference in today’s blog or posts other than yours. What does your response refer to?

    The easiest way to find UH alumni is start on the West Coast – Seattle/Tacoma, Spokane, Portland, Eugene, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose, Los Angeles/Orange County, San Diego.

    Create sports-related special events – perhaps a Cattle Call or even a T-Gate before a key game or match – in each area over the next 18 months. Use whatever contact information provided by UH Foundation/Alumni Association, but go after the area’s local sportswriters & social media + spend a little money on getting some paid advertising out there. Bring in a coach or someone like Colt Brennan to be the Honorary Host.

    When DrDoc got an invitation to a UVa reception before the Christmas basketball tournament when UH was still playing at the Blaisdell, we were stunned to see well over 400 people at the party. Yes, a fair nuimber in attendance were spouses and current UVa fans traveling ti Hawai`i, but at least 150 in attendance were HI residents who graduated from UVa – including half a dozen folks we knew from other parts of our lives.

    Getting people together is just the First Step – then there has to be followthrough.

    Another busy day – lots of difficult & unpleasant decisions to make about life and what’s going to happen next – including what’s going to happen next both personally & professionally.

  64. BG September 9, 2010 9:24 am

    Wonderful to see some clubhouse members around this morning! Don, that thing with your PDA and bar codes is a winnah!

    Positive news about tix. Tuesday, I stopped in at Schofield’s MWR travel office and saw a flier that advertised UH football tickets that could be bought there. I asked the representative to confirm and was told yes. I nearly jumped for joy as this was something I had asked UH for over two years ago. I just hope it’s in place for the other branches of service. It’s a huge community that needs to be tapped. Previous years’ military promo’s saw locals (military connected) buying them and hawking them at the gate. Active military personnel just didn’t have reasonable access to purchase tix.

    During the ASU-Portland St. game, the announcers mentioned that every ticket sold for the ASU-NAU game this Saturday, 9/11, would allow a veteran or their ‘ohana to attend the game, too.

    Sun Devil Athletics, in conjunction with Fox Sports Arizona and KTAR, is proud to announce our Salute to our Troops. On Sept. 11 for the game against NAU at 7 p.m., ASU and its media partners will donate a ticket to the Veteran Tickets Foundation for every ticket purchased. The Veteran Tickets Foundation is a program dedicated to giving back to those who gave by providing tickets to athletics events to active duty military, veterans and/or their family members.

  72. Stretch September 9, 2010 9:58 am

    Inouye is a resource that can help the University, including the Athletic Department. Even if Inouye gets shutdown by others, who cares, it just shows that JD is doing everything he can. I don’t see anything wrong with it. To me, JD has nothing to lose.

  73. Kazz blogging via DROID X September 9, 2010 10:07 am

    UH stands nothing to lose by asking for Senator Inouye’s assistance, but what I remain ignorant about is what exactly can a US Senator do to influence such decisions.

    Perhaps a voice for all of Hawaii? The SC game alone brought in a reported $10 million for the local economy. Its hard to imagine other political officials cannot see the value of UH athletics.

  78. Bulla September 9, 2010 10:23 am

    UH has to pull out ALL the stops, along with Inouye, ask Obama, Mehau, Gotti, & the Dalai Lama for all I know. If we could find Jimmy Hoffa, ask him too.

    Howzit Everybody,

    Last Call #72,

    Yes that might have happened back then but you have to remember now that Inouye is now third in command and you gotta think that Inouye has alot of influence right now over what goes and doesn’t go. Putting in a good word and maybe giving a little power nudge couln’t hurt on behalf of the UH by Inouye.

    And like other have said, it doesn’t hurt to ask. Look at what Orin Hatch did for Utah and to think that Orin doesn’t have half the power that Inouye has.

Heh crazier things have happened but you will never know what happenes until someone puts there best foot forward and I think JD is starting the cycle.

    Wasn’t she recently looking for a job?

    Last Call – I agree with you 100%, we are screwed so UH should give up and quit all sports and concentrate on academics. We can shoot for a top notch debate team and they can hold events at Aloha Stadium where it will pack the stadium.

  97. HawaiiMongoose September 9, 2010 10:54 am

    Keep in mind that Inouye recently took over as chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee. That means he has more personal influence over the spending of federal funds than anyone else in Washington D.C., including President Obama. And where do big BCS universities get the vast majority of their research money from? The federal government.

    Any university president that wouldn’t take a phone call from Inouye and at least give consideration to what he has to say is making a serious mistake.

  103. Kaimuki Kid September 9, 2010 11:05 am

    Like Garret pointed out a couple of days ago we should ask for assistance in lobbying the NCAA to extend the college football season one more week like they are doing for the 2013 season. That way the Hawaii/Alska exemption would be more attractive to the other D-! programs. It would allow an extra bye week to heal the owies and perhaps entice more programs to play in Hawaii for that extra home game.

  104. papajoe2 September 9, 2010 11:31 am

    Asking Senator Inouye for help may also be local, not just nationally. He could be the guy to get all the local ties together, like the visitor’s bureau, the UH admistration, the airlines, the hotels, etc. to put everything on the table and iron out what needs must be met, or who can help with what, or who may even have good ideas about making money. I mentioned something similar to this a while ago, but thought the governor or future governor would or could do something to help. Garret said that a while ago, the legislature asked UH what they could do to help and UH turned them down saying to could manage without them. With Senator Inouye involved, the untapped resources for UH could be endless. Earlier in today’s blog or maybe yesterday’s blog, we mentioned about how UH merchandise is not being sold nationwide or UH’s athletic department is not getting anything or very little for whatever is sold.

    I would love to see the UH Legal Beagles in Training and UH Marketing Students take on the realtime challenge of acquiring, protecting and promoting the Athletic Department – from logo licensing to away-game marketing.


  107. Steve September 9, 2010 11:45 am

    Excuse me people, but if the Athletic Director, and UH Administration has to ask Senator Inouye for help, does that mean they do not have a clue of what to do? I hope not, otherwise we are in more serious trouble then I thought we were in.

    The fact that Inouye told them you need a plan and a vision of where you want to go says everything, they don’t have a clue.Just the same old BS lines…..collecting info,weighing options and pondering .

    Last word for me on the subject for today I need to get back into game mode .

    I’m an admitted Last Call fan, but I agree w/Bulla. Can’t hurt to ask anyone and everyone for assistance right now – UH football is on life support. What does hurt is you ask Danny Boy to help and he says – rightfully so – I want you guys to have a plan for getting into a conference. Ouch!! Sore! Burning sensation!

    We need our senior senator to tell UH they need to have a plan? Yikee crikees.

  113. Stretch September 9, 2010 12:06 pm

    Whatever JD does next, stay in the WAC, independent, beg into another conference is going to be a HUGE decision for the University and State of Hawaii for years to come. I am glad he is talking to a lot of people for advice and help, rather than just go at it with people within the Athletic Department. It can make or break all sports at UH.

    If Montana cannot afford to support a D-IAA program, how are they going to be able to move up to D-IA? The WAC doesn’t exactly have huge amounts of TV money and most WAC bowls pay the bowl minimum.

    Expansion has been a hot topic in Montana ever since last spring, when athletic director Jim O’Day announced the financial woes of the athletic department.

    This triggered a series of rumors that Montana would move up to the Football Bowl Subdivision, where bowl game payouts and new television contracts would be the cure-all for the school’s woes. The most recycled rumor had Montana replacing Boise State in the WAC.

  119. Garret September 9, 2010 12:34 pm

    The *one* thing that Sen. Inouye could do is to support UH’s request (assuming UH makes the request) to extend the football season to 15 weeks instead of 14 weeks. Then, that would make the Hawaii exemption worth something again and UH would be able to schedule better teams and have more value to conferences and more power as an independent.

    Of course, after a few seasons with 12 games in 15 weeks, some schools will immediately petition the NCAA to allow them to play a 13th regular-season game. All D-IA teams would benefit since the extra game would be worth a million or more to their Athletic Departments…but then the Hawaii exemption would be worth even less than now because teams wouldn’t want 14 regular-season games.

  120. kev-1 September 9, 2010 12:48 pm

    Do some of you really think that when JD and the rest of the UH admin. heard Inouye say that they needed a plan they were like “Ooops! a plan? Yup, you’re right we better make one. What were we thinking?”

    Come on! It is ridiculous to think that it took Inouye to say that for them to get the idea. It is more likely that Sen Inouye had no idea what was going on because he is 185 years old and was told about the WAC situation and said “what? we have a football team at UH? Well, they better make a plan then.”

    RELAX!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m just making a joke.

    Seriously though, some of you need to give JD a lot more credit. He isn’t a bad AD.

  121. NCAA September 9, 2010 12:56 pm

    With Inouye think PAC 13,14 otherwise why bother if not go indy and at least play 2 3 teams PAC teams a year, like being an assiocate member, how to do that,get Dick Tomey on the committee and figure it out

    Indy means planning fiveyears into the future. and keep the best at home,get coaches who will develope for the next level and the rest of us will have to pay a lot more., that is the cost of the big time.

  123. Pomai September 9, 2010 1:05 pm

    kev-1 agree JD came in at a very bad time, he had five years of crap to clean up after the fumbler, just think if he took over with the program in at least decent shape.

  124. Garret September 9, 2010 1:06 pm

    Oops, I mean to say the one most important thing, not just that was the only thing Sen. Inouye could do.

  125. Garret September 9, 2010 1:06 pm

    There is a *big* difference between what Sen. Hatch did for Utah and what Sen. Inouye could do for UH. Sen. Hatch held hearing that examined how an undefeated Utah team did not have a chance to play for a national title, and how an undefeated Utah team did not have the same type of revenue earned from the BCS bowl system as other highly ranked teams.

    So, Sen. Hatch was looking at how *performance* did not equal revenue or chances at BCS bowl games. Since Sen. Hatch raised all of those questions, the BCS has released their formula to determine how any conference (like the MWC) can become an AQ conference by winning enough games. So, Sen. Hatch was looking at equitable compensation for *performance on the field*. The BCS is offering the MWC and other non-AQ conferences that possibility.

    Sen. Hatch was comparing conferences to other conferences. It seems like what posters are hoping Sen. Inouye do is just to benefit UH…and have it *not* based on performance, but instead be a type of charity that would benefit UH and nobody else. There is no way that a Senator can or should force one conference to take a team!

    There are things that Sen. Inouye could do that would benefit UH *and* every other D-IA school. Adding one week to the season can easily be defended because the NCAA added games to the season without adding weeks to the season, reducing bye weeks. The extra week could be seen as giving football players extra time to let their bodies recover from the injuries they sustain from a long season. Also, the extra week will increase conference TV value, which would give all D-IA schools extra money in a time when they all need it!

    The side benefit is that adding an extra week would make the Hawaii Exemption valuable again and it would help UH schedule premium teams once again. That change could be the single most important difference between a UH struggling as an independent team and a UH making a big profit as an independent team. Sen. Inouye doesn’t even need to talk about this side benefit because he would be suggesting it solely (cough, cough) because of his concern over the need for another bye week for student-athletes to recover over a long season.

    I’m guessing that this is NOT what Sen. Inouye was asked to do by UH…but it is what I wish UH would ask from him.

  126. rage777 September 9, 2010 1:10 pm

    Nice article about Micah Kia. Don’t usually like talking about players not on UH, but it was a really nice article about the Polynesian culture and his tats. Also one quote from Norm Chow and a mention of Aaron.

  127. Hawaiian September 9, 2010 1:13 pm


    I know on there is the “game notes” that includes a 2-deep of the upcoming week…but on away games, why can’t there be a posted “traveling squad” roster instead. I would think its cool to have a roster of the ROAD WARRIORS!!!

  128. Garret September 9, 2010 1:15 pm

    Sen. Inouye can do NOTHING about UH getting into the Pac-12. People might as well ask him to get an NFL team in Hawaii, the Pac-12 is far above UH’s level right now. The Pac-12 is looking for $15 million per school in TV value, and even a state the size of Colorado doesn’t have enough TV sets to bring that much value…however, adding Utah and Colorado gets them a championship game for football that is valued around $15 million, so it made sense.

    There simply are not enough people in Hawaii to be enough of a value for the Pac-10 TV deal. If UH was in such demand, they would have more than 1 ESPN game this year. Think about that, ESPN can show UH games for free (they paid $75k for USC to be moved to Thursday and can show any of the other games at Aloha Stadium for free) and chooses not to show UH…and we’re suddenly going to claim that we add $15 million to the Pac-10’s TV deal? Add in travel time/cost and a crippled value of the Hawaii exemption and Sen. Inouye can’t do anything for UH with the Pac-10.

    If UH had upgraded athletics *and* academics over the past 20 years, or even the past 10 years, UH might be attractive to the Pac-10. Instead, all we have been hearing is how badly the budget cuts have hurt the academic programs at UH, how UH has had furloughs, and how UH’s facilities are in shameful shape with the neglect of the maintenance reaching scandalous levels.

  129. Garret September 9, 2010 1:17 pm


    Maybe the coaches don’t want the travel roster released because they don’t want ARMY to know how made the trip? Remember, the UH coaches were so paranoid about other schools learning who was on the roster that the they didn’t even release the list of the players in training camp…like they thought USC was going to be concerned with who was the last person on the camp roster.

  130. Garret September 9, 2010 1:28 pm

    Pride. made a good point in yesterday’s blog about how UH has to worry about losing Rolo to some bigger-budget school. Pride said that UH should look to lock up Rolo, but all assistants are on 1-year contracts with no penalty if the assistants go elsewhere.

    UH simply doesn’t have the money to pay an offensive coordinator enough to avoid losing him to another school if money is a factor. Some schools are paying QB or RB coaches more than what Rolo makes as a coordinator! Rolo is in the low 6-figures and some assistants have passed the 7-figure mark.

    Put it this way, some schools have assistant coaches with better compensation packages than what *Mack* gets. UH can give Rolo time to prove himself early in his career, but if he has great success then UH might lose him just like they lost Mack after the 1999 season.

Federal renumeration, tax incentives for hotels and transportation companies that house these school’s athletes or schools that are playing these athletes…etc…

    Something to help balance the books.

  134. NCAA September 9, 2010 1:31 pm

    Paranoid coaches? Bottom line is did the coaches properly prepare the players to carry out their assignments and kick ass every play.

    I’m certain the coaches would bring the players they need to win the game.

    If there continues to be communication problems, players misaligned, and improper tackling techniques then it boils down to the coaches and not who is on the roster.

    Article on Gordy Shaw recruiting in Minnesota.

    Gordie Shaw, who for 15 years was the University of Minnesota football team’s top in-state recruiter, two seasons ago was offensive coordinator for South Dakota, which plays the Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday.

    “South Dakota is a football program on the rise, but it’s not in the same category as South Dakota State or North Dakota State,” Shaw said. “Those programs have been Division I-AA (Football Championship Subdivision) for seven years. South Dakota’s up (to FCS) from Division II in just its third year.”

    Under Shaw in 2008, South Dakota was sixth among FCS schools in total offense. He since has moved to the University of Hawaii, where he’s in his second season as offensive line coach.

    As for Shaw, 56, he continues to recruit Minnesota and is working on three high school players from the state.

    That would been seen as charity, and every D-IA and D-IAA school would immediately claim they qualify under the rule. Where does the money come for that type of handout?

There is no way that a Senator can or should force one conference to take a team!

    Inouye already does this for Hawaii, billions of dollars in “pork” get steered to Hawaii because of him. It’s nothing new Stevens did it for Alaska and Byrd did it for West Virginia. As Chairman of the Appropriations committee he may be the most powerful person in Congress. I’m at the point where I’m in favor of doing whatever it takes, if Inouye playing political hardball it what it takes then so be it.

    Someone also talked about Baylor and the Big 12 earlier, Ann Richards basically forced the Big 12 to take Baylor so it’s not like political meddling in unprecedented in conference movement.

    Chiming on GARRET’s comments on #126, obviously Senator Dan can use his influence on the NCAA to expand the amount of weeks played, but his influence would be felt, not on the Senate floor, but with his various supporters here in Hawaii and elsewhere.

    Dan could become the honorary chairman of the UH alumni association; he could ask some of the banks if they could help out UH; he could ask his friend Joe Moneybags if he would like to help out – build a stadium on campus, give some (more) $$$ to Koa Anuenue, give a long term lease on the lands around the campus owned by Bishop Estate in return for some quid pro quo from UH and so forth.

    Having Sen. Inouye’s good will and support for UH ahtletics is a positive thing. The more UH ahtletics can engage the movers and shakers in our community, the better.

    We would never know how much help Inouye can help unless he was asked.

    I think UH athletics should be proactive in lobbying top political candidates as well. The silence from the gubernatorial candidates regarding the recent WAC shake up is deafening. Why not get their thoughts on this issue?

    As evidenced by the recent USC game, a strong UH football program can be of great economic benefit to the community. It makes sense to keep our football program as healthy as possible.

    Garret, don’t you think that Hawaii being the most geographically remote spot on the planet could potentially lead to special consideration and assistance from Senator Inouye or the NCAA? No other schools can claim Hawai’i’s challenges in that regard.

    Seems we are not privy to every little bit of behind the scenes work going on at the UH regarding its future conference affiliation(s). I can understand the frustration at what appears to be non-action by the powers that be, too.

    But, I really have to trust that JD and others are working hard to ensure the viability of the various UH sports teams.

    People have decried what appears to be the “leak” by someone about the possible moves by the WAC, BYU, UNLV, and SDSU. Going even so far as to say KB is at fault. Perhaps he is.

    By folks expecting to hear the UH’s plans detailed or outlined by JD would that be similar to what KB has been denounced for doing? Blundering his way though negotiations and telegraphic his intentions.

    No, I think I would rather have the quiet. Even if the fans clamor for more information.

    I there is a lot of “gamesmanship” going on but i am pretty sure opposing coaches arent worrying about who is on the 2nd and 3rd teams.

    I just want to know for my own selfish reasons…to know who is working hard at each position and earning the right to travel. Being on the travelling party is very important for the non-starters…that’s why i am curious.

    papajoe2 #164:

    The WAC Sports Network is just a mechanism for the conference to get their games shown in WAC markets by centrally producing them (with the talent crew referenced in my previous post) and then distributing them to local TV stations in (mostly) WAC markets.

    The concept isn’t unique; K5 has had endeavors in this sort of arrangement in the past. Think back to last year’s Central Arkansas game when K5 produced the game, then distributed the broadcast feed to a bunch of local TV stations in Arkansas. That’s pretty much what the WAC Sports Network is.

  169. Committed Road Warrior September 9, 2010 3:17 pm

    K5 is the local station in Hawai’i participating in the WAC Sports Network.

    I think that if the WAC Sports Network is moderately successful, it may spell the end of Leahey, Yamanoha, and the K5 crew from having to do UH road football games in the future.

    In essence, why would K5 want to send those two (and all the equipment) to Ruston/Moscow/etc. if the WAC Sports Network crew is going to be doing the game and beaming it back to K5 as part of the WAC Sports Network programming package?

    Got into Philly early this morning. During the day thought it seemed a bit muggy. Humidity might be a factor for the visitors on Saturday.

    Humidity is no problem.

    wafan, I hear what your saying but I’m would like to take it one step further by saying let’s act positively for the best of UH, only UH and whatever interest that might be. self-centered or selfish it may be but to many times UH has consider others only to get shafted.

    Sugarland Texas How Sweet It Is !

    I have had the pleasure to re-unite with my former basketball pupil player Coach Andre Lapeyrolerie who is the NATIONAL coach for Nike AAU H.S. womens basketball players in Dallas, Texas !

    Andre has a “SUPERSTAR” 13 year old freshmen daughter Alex Lapeyrolerie who is just simply a “STUD” at 5″10″ and a 140 lbs of “Rib Eye” game as she is BIG and fast can shoot the lights from any distance of the court as Coach Dana and Houl are just MARVELED with her talent and making her the #1 recruit for the wahine basketball program in 2013 !

    Daddy Andre and I go WAYYYY back as he watch me play as a Verbum Dei Standout here in Los Angeles and when I left you good folks in 1981, I became the assistant coach at St. Bernards H.S. in which Andre and other GREAT players were making their mark on PAC 10 basketball scholarships as 17 of the varsity and junior varsity players in two years went Division 1 as UCLA, Stanford, USC, Oregon State, Cal Berkerly, Oregon and Washington were LOADED with Playa Del Rey Vikings from St. Bernard H.S. !

    Coach Andre has taken his teachings and consults with me from his Texas land of superior womens basketball players daily as he is just LOADED with OUTSTANDING talent as he has made interest to me about Hawaii women’s basketball and I e-mail Coach Dana LAST night and she immediately replied back to me and Coach Andre on Hawaii opening that pipeline from Sugarhill, Texas to Hawaii wahine basketball as Coach Da Houl is “EXCITED” on the potential of quality womens athlete from the Lone Star State of AAU National basketball !

    Coach Andre girl is being recruited by UNC, Georgia, Rice, University of Houston, Texas Tech, Princeton and Southern Mississippi with Hawaii in the picture as IF you don’t get Alex the pipeline is WIDE open as Coach Lapeyrolerie has over 100 the FINEST 6th, 7th and 8th graders that plays AAU Basketball in Texas and he is the National Coach with other coaches that put on a CLINIC of amaze talent of some Texas girls that play the D, fast and BIG with unbelievable talent as when Coach Houl saw the video of young Alex he could not BELIEVE she was just 13 years old heading to her freshmen year in High School !

    Simply The Best, Better Then All The Rest as get ready Tsaikos in Hawaii, Sugarland is coming as I and Coach Andre LEAD the stampede of Texas gals who can flat out play and is VERY MUCH interested in women’s Hawaii basketball !

    The fruits of my labor are harvesting and Hawaii Nei is their DESTINATION !

  189. Committed Road Warrior September 9, 2010 4:01 pm


    Not sure; we’ll see. If anything, I wouldn’t be surprised if the WAC blacks out their coverage to Hawai’i if they opt to do a UH home game, allowing K5/Oceanic to still cover home games as per their deal with UH.

    My interpretation of the WAC Sports Network is that its meant to augment ESPN coverage and not trample on individual school’s home-game TV agreements (if they have one).

    Lastly, my gut feeling is that none of the Hawai’i home games are gonna end up on the WAC Sports Network with their crew this year. Most likely game to end up on the WAC network is our game with Boise (if ESPN doesn’t pick it up).

    OK, I’m back.

    First off, Laupepa Letuli is back at right tackle. He’s got a huge wrapping on his right calf, but he should be OK.

  203. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:15 pm

    Aaron Brown is practicing with the safeties but he’s not playing safety.


    Well, UH has a special defense it’s putting in for the game, so I have to keep things hush-hush.

  204. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:17 pm

    As for the travel roster, UH isn’t issuing one. So I’ve been going by deduction.

    Who’s not here? Aulola Tonga (injured), Dee Maggit, Bubba Poueu-Luna, Jon Lister.

  205. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:18 pm

    Darius Bright is here, but I doubt he’ll play. Rodney Bradley is doing well. Greg Salas made a couple of leaping TD catches with tip-toe landings. On one, Salas out-jumped John Hardy-Tuliau.

  206. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:19 pm

    The Warriors were working on kick-coverage placements. Bright took a kickoff at the 20, then ran upfield. One of o-linemen said that was the slowest return of the year.

  207. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:20 pm

    Scott Enos will handle all of the kicking duties. The Warriors left behind Tyler Haddon. Kenny Estes is the emergency backup kicker.

  208. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:21 pm

    The whispers are that Chizzy Dimude is going to have a breakout game.

  209. d1島 September 9, 2010 4:21 pm

  210. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:21 pm

    Did I mention that Zach Masch is here?

    And in the rotation.

  211. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:22 pm

    Beau Yap was not on the roster’s “delete” list, so the assumption is he’s here. But I don’t think I’ve seen him, so maybe that’s an oversight and he’s not here. Or maybe it’s my oversight.

  212. d1島 September 9, 2010 4:23 pm


    Now you’re excused to “make friends” on the Boardwalk….

  213. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:24 pm

    The Park Ridge High football team attended today’s practice. (Go Owls!) UH wanted someone to speak to the kids during practice. Everyone was occupied, so punter (and Australian) Alex Dunnachie gave the talk.

  214. d1島 September 9, 2010 4:24 pm

    …or not.

    Keep going den….

  215. d1島 September 9, 2010 4:24 pm

    …did they think he was speaking Hawaiian? 😆

  216. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:24 pm

    By the way, Dunnachie said UH measured him at nearly 6-6. But he says he believes he’s is under 6-4. Is this a metric system problem?

  217. d1島 September 9, 2010 4:25 pm

    (Go Owls!) take it easy jmxxxx!

  218. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:27 pm

    Alema Tachibana is expected to play on defense.

  219. d1島 September 9, 2010 4:29 pm

    Sounds like a “need for speed” thinking on defense…

  220. Stephen Tsai September 9, 2010 4:30 pm

    I read the article announcing Tomey’s new gig. It doesn’t sound like Hawaii is included. Might be cuz K5/Oceanic has the contract for UH?

    Learfield Sports’ locally based WAC Sports Properties team has oversight of WSN through Learfield Sports’ extensive conference partnership. The company represents the WAC, as well as seven member schools: Boise State, Fresno State, Idaho, Louisiana Tech, Nevada, San Jose State and Utah State.

    Or are we included because of the “The company represents the WAC,…” stmt? Hmmmm…

  236. wafan September 9, 2010 4:43 pm

    That is what I just do not understand. Why it takes so long for the UH to do stuff to recognize groups. Would be awesome for the Warriors to honor the military on a Military Night, or a Law and Order Night (perhaps fewer fights?), or a whatever else can be thought of. Heck, I have been away so long maybe they do these things now.

    The “H” products, etc. are a good example, as are tickets for home and away games.

    Glad to see Don is going to start work to fix those short-sighted philosophies. Yay!

  239. Not an Expert September 9, 2010 4:50 pm


    Appreciate your adding of some positive solutions on what could be done to help UH to build their athletic program especially football. Although a big hill to climb to achieve the levels of the elite athletic programs, almost anything is possible if there is a desire and a willingness to attain the goals one sets out to achieve. Example BSU already having plans to look into membership in the PAC 12, within the next 10 years. Even if they don’t make it they are laying the groudwork to do so.

    With the information you uncover and if UH administrators don’t have these information and numbers, that is a major problem in itself. How can goals and directions be created not knowing where point A is first and what it will take to get to point B. Ditto for Benson.

    This is a huge wakeup call for UH. They know now that they cannot rely on others but must start doing the things to achieve the goals in respect to their athletic department. What will it be, to stay at the level they are now, step down a level or put the metal to the pedal and say we want and will set our sights to be one of the elite athelic college program in the country. They need to at least let the sports citizens of Hawaii know what direction they will take. Whichever they choose release the proper information so all who can support that goal and direction can give their best to it.

    The time has come for seeds to be planted for what fruits UH wants for their college sport programs. This is the wakeup call and there is no better time than now to make the moves to better the standings of athletics at the University of Hawaii. As they say success is just around the corner when their is adversity. Sometimes the greater the adversity the greater the reward.

    OK. Slow night on the blog so I guess I’m going to shake things up. Am I the only one that noticed Pilares dropped 2,3,4 balls in the beginning of the game? Would the outcome have been different had he caught those balls? Maybe it would have given us a lead, thus forcing USC into predicable situations. Maybe not though, as we couldn’t stop USC anyway. Yes, he seemed to redeemed himself, especially in the second half and also against USC’s 2nd team defense. I’m glad he did so and maybe it will give him confidence in all the future games, but during the game I was yelling “he dropped the ball again!” Its just that all the media is making him a hero, but I know and he and the coaches know he could/should have done a lot better. Nervous? We need you man. Get it together and you will definitely have some positive results.

    ST-previous reports a week before USC game:


    Special teams coordinator Chris Tormey said Bubba Poueu-Luna, Siaki Cravens and John Hardy-Tuliau are among the players expected to shine.


    About how they have 4 new DBs (CBs Dee Maggitt and John Hardy-Tuliau, and safeties Darryl McBride and Bubba Poueu-Luna) have done well in camp and will be in the mix for playing time, Dave Aranda said:

    “The group that came is really strong. The talent is there. We’re set for the next couple of years.” (HSA)

    I agree that we lost that battle on the end. A strategy might have been to line up wider to draw the OT out and maybe ‘juke’ to the inside. Someone told ‘me’ it’s all about the hips….speed, power, tenacity….3 required ingredients for success as aDE.

    Noga, Laboy, Stanley, all former great Warriors, how about having a closed door session with the current DL? or has the game evolved too far from their day? I don’t think so….. Just a thought…

    Did you say tenacity? Knowing all three of those former DE’s you mentioned, to some degree. All of them possessed all four qualities. But the there are three qualities that trumed the others. They all had tenacity, tenacity, and tenacity. Did I mention that they were also tenacious ball players who played with incredible intensity. They treated the game like a street fight.

    It’s hard to play with tenacity if you’re not sure about your alignment and assignment. Boys need to really lock that down so that they can play with tenacity and intensity. Those two things are hard to do if you have to think too much. When you lock down your alignment and assignment, then you can play like a crazed dog.

    I am heartened that JD asked Senator Inouye for assistance. Inouye is not known to stick his nose into other people’s business …unless he is asked… and now a State of Hawaii institution has asked. No, I don’t think he can get us into the Pac-12, but he certainly could rally influential people in the state, and maybe beyond.

  279. LizKauai (iPad) September 10, 2010 12:52 am

    duffer- JJs is good. I’ll be at the Aloha Beach Hotel for the Rotary Conf. Plenary sessions and breakfast are scheduled during gametime and I may have to wait for the dvr on Sunday. Hopefully they have wifi.

    Nitey nite and sweet Warrior Dreams!

  280. Pomai September 10, 2010 1:01 am

    I guess it’s Murphy’s to watch the game with s/j , myki an Kazz, you can join us if you want protector. The doors open at 5:30, lord I hope they have the kopa ready

    Tenacious & Persuading were to be used in a sentence by *Julio* the Filipino 4th grader:

    He thought for a New York moment and then recited his winning sentence.

    “My mom bought me a new pair of tenacious! for my sister’s persuading.

    We are not alone. Long article, but extremely important to read and understand. I plan to send it on to political leaders once the Primary Election is pau.

    Why Big Dan? As was pointed out, he done got de powa.

  283. protector September 10, 2010 2:07 am

    BG, koakane, SteveM, Pomai and others,

    Thanks for getting back to me. For a while I thought all the Tsaikos were all on the mainland preparing to watch it live. Didn’t realize it was going to be on that early. It’ll be a real challenge; the spirit is “willing” but sometimes the flesh is oh so weak./ sleepy, in this case.

  284. protector September 10, 2010 2:11 am


    Can you save a spot for me? If I get up, your venue at Murphy’s might be the closest. Mahalo.

  285. wafan September 10, 2010 3:24 am

    Happy Aloha Friday, everyone!

  286. wafan September 10, 2010 3:25 am

    Will tomorrow’s game be online anywhere other than the radio?

  287. Harland Winkle September 10, 2010 3:26 am

    every year there is a fire like this, now its our turn in san bruno, hope it stops soon

  288. wafan September 10, 2010 3:29 am

    Thank goodness it is Friday. Geez, it has been busy and crazy at school. Sure hope the Warriors are better organized than the administration here. Clowns cannot make up their minds.

  289. mctruck September 10, 2010 4:21 am

    I don’t know how this will work out, but I subscribe to Directv and I have located on Channel (613-CBSCHD), the Army/UH game; I have programed to tape the game… to see if the game is actually telecast tmr?????

  290. mctruck September 10, 2010 4:23 am

    Ofcourse, I live in east-Texas and also subscribed to ESPN-GAME PLAN…..don’t know if that has anything to do with the CBS-telecast?

  291. mctruck September 10, 2010 4:28 am

    Wonder if Senator Inouye can help put together a situation were ALL UH games are telecast nation-wide, for more exposure??, gotta do something with being tied down-with just local telecasts’……this ain’t high school football, afterall. Maybe partner up with BYU and their ability to telecast, etc.

  292. Garret September 10, 2010 4:45 am


    The Army home games are shown on CBS CS in HD. So, you have set your DVR to the correct channel. CBS CS has nothing to do with ESPN GamePlan–it is a channel you already get. They normally don’t have much programming…for example, they are showing JJ’s coaches show about *13* times this week. That is great national exposure for SMU and JJ, but 13x in one week (plus 5 or so times on Fox Sports SouthWest) seems like overkill.

  293. Garret September 10, 2010 5:17 am

    Mack’s coaches show is being shown on Fox College Sports Pacific, so that is nice exposure for UH in California.

  294. d1島 September 10, 2010 5:40 am

    Great Morning All!


    No, but it’s bighilofan2’s Birthday!

    I hear u my brother, TENACITY, says it all. Like a D lineman in our Ohana says, ‘gotta let the BIG DOG run,’.

    It’s the gift of turning the switch on, to go from a football player into a maniacal, bone crushing, tenacious, rabid beast, with the relentless desire to create chaos on the field.

    Tenacity comes with confidence, confidence cones with complete knowledge of your assignment.


  296. Bulla September 10, 2010 5:54 am

    Comes not cones, fat fingers strike again 🙁

  301. Stretch September 10, 2010 6:32 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!!

    Do any of you mainlanders know what station will be showing the game tomorrow morning?? Or is there an online stream?? I have friends in Orange County trying to figure how to watch the game. Thanks

  302. Soila Lascano September 10, 2010 6:38 am

    Couldn’t get any greater then this, terrific function!

  303. djmitcho September 10, 2010 6:42 am

    CBSC will be showing the game ch.613 Direct tv. Will not be blacked out on the mainland.

  313. mctruck September 10, 2010 8:06 am


    Just wondering if UH could workout a deal with the Indy-Channel on broadcasting their games…seems like maybe it’s do-able if all things come together…and it would be a 1st on an established channel network for late viewing purposes from Hawaii.

  314. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc September 10, 2010 8:13 am


    Are you referring to the November 12 event? Or the service project on September 18?

This is a blogengine weblog correct?It looks like the right part of the navigation in top is not showing normally in the newest version of google chrome. You might want to take a look at it I’d really like to comment something on your current article later on but i am going to go through it first 🙂 Many thanks, Ruben

    Oh, were the A-Houses going to be on the Today Show this morning? I forgot to tune in. Watching news programs and unfortunately there was tennis on the station I watch. Wonder if they’ll show the people outside again?

  329. Slugger September 10, 2010 9:03 am


    KGMB probably used their sports news piece from last night on this morning’s show. I was at the WVB game last night, so missed the news & didn’t watch C_C’s video of the news. Have not see Bulla & his bride in a commercial yet…

  330. Ipu Man September 10, 2010 9:13 am

    Ten dollars for a peek at UH game via the armed forces link not bad.

    Wonder how much breakfast/popcorn/coffee/coke would cost?

  335. Ipu Man September 10, 2010 9:42 am

    Oh-Oh…buyer beware…

    I just forked over my 10 bucks to GoArmywhatever…

    got confirmed tho they did not tell me how much they charged me…

    and it took several attempts to log in…

    and when I finally did get in, there was no audio…even tho

    I hit the little loudspeaker to its max…

    And looking at the video selection, there was a little box that

    said “premium”…so I wonder if there is ANOTHER charge

    besides the ten bucks. I think my chain got jerked…

  336. Ipu Man September 10, 2010 9:52 am

    well, finally got audio…

    but no buffer bar, nor play/pause…huh?

    And it is like radio as the picture (of interview of coach)

    is mostly “still”…so probably going to be only “audio”

    if “premium” even lets me in…but I was planning

    to listen to BC RK at the same time. Darn!

  337. SteveM September 10, 2010 9:53 am

    Hmmmm… 1600 EDT and no new blog entry. I wonder if ST caught up with RK for some light snacking? 😆

  338. Ipu Man September 10, 2010 9:54 am

    Oh well, my poor little contribution to help our troops…

    down the drain as far as I am concerned…

    my advice—avoid this rip off.

  339. SteveM September 10, 2010 9:55 am

    Nice to see Sen. Inouye announce $36 million for UH in stimulus money. I don’t have a link yet–UH sent this to me via e-mail.

    As more than 200 representatives from business, community, labor and government gathered to discuss the importance of higher education to Hawai’i’s future at the University of Hawai’i’s Higher Education Summit today, U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye announced via video message at the summit that the U.S. Department of Commerce has awarded the University of Hawai’i System two broadband stimulus grants totaling nearly $36 million that will allow the university to dramatically enhance Hawai’i’s educational broadband capabilities, modernize and expand the UH distance learning network, and improve the public’s access to broadband throughout the state.

  343. Garret September 10, 2010 10:05 am

    Record Online has a nice preview of the UH-Army game, mostly from the Army perspective.

  344. Garret September 10, 2010 10:07 am has a nice article about Rich Miano and his trips to New Jersey.

    Miano, Hawaii’s secondary coach, says he’s made the trip at least 55 times, most recently for the Giants-Jets preseason game on Aug. 16.

    “I remember watching the Rutgers game against Fresno State last year,” Miano said. “They had a map on ESPN and they showed how they traveled across the continental United States. Well, we have to travel across two continental United States.”

    This is the longest trip (4,955 miles) to play a football game in the school’s history.

  345. Garret September 10, 2010 10:08 am

    “It’s nice to travel,” Hawaii senior wide receiver Greg Salas said. “It’s nice to be out there playing different teams. I haven’t played Army before and I haven’t been too far east. I’m excited to play Army. They look like a great team.”

  346. Garret September 10, 2010 10:10 am

    Villanova is going to go from D-IAA to a BCS AQ conference…at least they won the D-IAA title last year (beating Montana). They are already part of the Big East in basketball and other sports.

    Villanova is studying a proposal to join the Big East Conference in football, the school’s athletic director told the Philadelphia Daily News.

    “The Big East very recently communicated its interest in adding Villanova as a football member,” Wildcats AD Vince Nicastro told the Daily News on Thursday. “As a result, we have decided to embark on an in-depth evaluation of this opportunity.”

  347. al September 10, 2010 10:32 am

    channel 247 will show the uh-army game. you need the sports package from oc16. for some it came free with telephone services.
