Lefiti to miss training camp

It’s disappointing that center Matagisila Lefiti, who was understudy to ironman John Estes the past two seasons, will miss all of training camp after undergoing recent foot surgery.

But his replacement, Bronson Tiwanak, should make an easy adjustment. Tiwanak and quarterback Bryant Moniz were teammates at Fresno City College in 2007.

Brett Leonard, who is projected to start at left guard, has practiced at center during unsupervised 7-on-7 drills.

Here’s Tiwanak:

If you didn’t submit your application, its now too late to apply for the vacant UH coach’s position. Head coach Greg McMackin and Nick Rolovich will go through the applications, and announce Ron Lee’s successor next week.

You know who we’re picking.

    I know June Jones was really high on Lefiti. I didn’t get to see much of the spring, but I liked the glimpses I saw of him. But injuries happen, I hope Tiwanak steps up. As the offensive line goes, so will the offense.

  2. Jason June 16, 2010 12:25 am

    Stephen is right, it’s not posted on the home page of the Star-Advertiser. But it’s there when you go to warriorbeat.honadvblogs.com.

    I really miss having the links to the previous (and next) blog posts. That made things easier to see if there was a new post.

    Carried over from the yesterday’s blog:

    Any word on where the football Call The Coach shows will be held this year? I assume that the Monday luncheons will still be at The Willows.

    Will be joining folks for the CC on Friday if I can get out of a meeting by 11:15 or so. I have another meeting that afternoon, but it isn’t until 2 pm.

  4. SteveM June 16, 2010 12:26 am

    Hi Jason.

  5. Jason June 16, 2010 12:34 am

    Hi WassupDoc. Hi SteveM. I think I got too much caffeine from the bottomless Coca-Cola at Call the Coach.

  6. SteveM June 16, 2010 12:52 am

    Jason — must be conditioning from all the late nights grading papers. 🙂

  7. Jason June 16, 2010 12:54 am

    Please, don’t remind me. 🙂

  8. Jason June 16, 2010 12:54 am

    I guess I’ll go to bed now. Good night!

  9. Ralph June 16, 2010 12:58 am

    if Jason didn’t post the url and announced a new post I wouldn’t have found it. Someone needs to tweak the system. Might have to go to WB archives or earlier blog entries and comments noted on the right margin.

  10. Ralph June 16, 2010 1:01 am

    good luck to Lefiti and hope for a quick and full recovery. It’s tough on a big man to have a foot injury, can’t put much weight or pressure on it, conditioning will be a problem and all those lost reps.

  11. wafan June 16, 2010 2:50 am

    A great Hum Day!!!

  12. wafan June 16, 2010 2:52 am

    This is going to be a goooooood day. It is the last day for seniors. Yeah!

    Some of them need to go away. Unfortunately a bunch of them will be back next year. Tsigh.

  13. wafan June 16, 2010 2:53 am

    Better is that it is a halfday with, ugh, meetings in the afternoon.

  14. wafan June 16, 2010 2:54 am

    AND, there are only FIVE wake ups remaining.


  15. wafan June 16, 2010 2:57 am

    Too bad about Lefiti’s foot. Better to get it done sooner than later.

    Need to get that offensive line working together. Consistancy.

  16. WATCH GODGIFU June 16, 2010 3:32 am

    Good morning people!

    How did Lefiti’s foot problem arise? Or did the MDs fail to properly diagnose the problem early on?

  17. Garret June 16, 2010 3:59 am

    Bad news about Matagisila Lefiti. Will he recover in time for the season or is the thought that he might be redshirting? It must be so frustrating to him to wait 2 years as the backup center and then get hurt and miss camp after Estes has graduated.

  18. mctruck June 16, 2010 4:07 am

    Another season and already another key component to the team hampered by major injury???…is there some kind of bad karma going on here?!!

  19. Garret June 16, 2010 5:25 am

    There is a little technical error at the end of ST’s article today. It says:

    Text goes here.

  20. Garret June 16, 2010 5:38 am

    Did the Pac-10 try to dump Oklahoma State to get Kansas late in the process and kill the Pac-16 chance?

    And Scott and Weiberg made one critical mistake in the courtship of the Big 12. Other than its somewhat foggy math that a 16-team Pac-10 could readily get to $20 million in TV revenue per school, they wanted to substitute Kansas for Oklahoma State late in the process, according to multiple sources in the Big 12.

    Texas was really starting to feel queasy now, sources said. UT officials knew deep down Texas A&M wasn’t coming to the Pac-10, despite Bill Byrne’s assurances, according to sources. And now Scott and Weiberg were looking to dump Oklahoma State in favor of Kansas. If A&M was a no-show, the Pac-10 would add Utah. Scott was looking to add new TV markets, not stick to the deal that was agreed upon a few days earlier.

    According to sources who talked to me Tuesday (two days after the fact), Dodds and Plonsky couldn’t stop thinking about all the negatives. And now they were dealing with a wheeler-dealer Pac-10 commissioner who wanted to sub out Boone Pickens’ Cowboys for the chance to grab new households in Kansas, Missouri and middle America.

    Dodds had given Oklahoma State his word they would be part of the group headed west. Now, the Pac-10 wanted to do some late rearranging.

  21. Garret June 16, 2010 5:41 am

    The Big 12 TV deal with ESPN/ABC, and some other key TV deals with other conferences expire in 2016, so things expansion/realignment could occur in 2017. That gives UH some time to dominate the WAC and be in a good position for the next round of dominoes.

    On its face, it looks like the Worldwide Leader is getting taken to the cleaners by continuing to pay the Big 12 for the next seven years as if it’s a 12-member league with a conference championship game (even though it’s a 10-member league with no title game).

    But ABC/ESPN isn’t out any more money, and it protected its interest in several areas (UT and OU don’t go to Fox as part of the Pac-16 conference network; the SEC and ACC likely don’t expand; Notre Dame remains an independent; and college realignment is averted for at least seven more years.)

  22. Bulla June 16, 2010 5:41 am

    good morning everyone, howzit MC,

    the challenge I have with this injury….how come it took so long to determine? didn’t he go through the PRO Day in LA….wouldn’t there exams have uncovered something? foot injuries, because of the construction of our foot with a zillion bones….is very delicate to say the least. one name….Bill Walton, another name…Ralph Sampson……all career ending foot injuries…

    hoping for a quick and full recovery 🙂

  23. Garret June 16, 2010 5:43 am

    Colorado is considered to be one of the losers in this round. It should be noted that the Pac-10 is talking about getting $10 million per school from TV while Iowa State and Kansas State will be getting $17 million to $20 million each from TV by staying in the Big 12.

    The Buffaloes can spin this any way they want, but they effectively gambled and lost. They got out ahead of the posse on Friday, hoping to cut off Baylor from trying to wrangle its invitation to the Pac-10, according to sources. The Buffs believed Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech were unshakable to the Pac-10, thus anticipating the Big 12 would crumble, so there would be no one left to collect the Buffs’ buyout penalties. Now, there are 10 schools gladly waiting to line their pockets with $15 million the Buffs’ can’t afford to pay. (CU couldn’t afford to pay Dan Hawkins’ $3 million buyout last year. Gulp.)

  24. Garret June 16, 2010 5:47 am

    All the analysts say that the Big 12 will get more per school from TV because Colorado did not bring enough TV interest…doesn’t that mean that by adding Colorado the Pac-10 might be getting less money per school?

    If Colorado is too small of a TV market, Utah might be even smaller. However, at least Utah wins and winning teams draw some national interest. But if Colorado’s market makes the other Pac-10 schools lose money, we should note that Hawaii’s market is much smaller than Colorado.

  25. Garret June 16, 2010 5:53 am

    Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Baylor and Missouri were so worried about being left behind so they offered to give all of the exit fees ($20 million or so) to Texas/Texas A&M/Oklahoma if they stayed in the Big 12. Apparently, Texas told them to keep their money and the Big 12 has confirmed that all schools will equally share the exit fees from Colorado and Nebraska.

    Beebe confirmed that five schools were so concerned about being abandoned that they offered to turn over their share of penalty fees from the Nebraska and Colorado departures to Texas, Oklahoma and A&M if they would just stay in the Big 12. Those schools were Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Baylor and Missouri.

    “That was not part of our consideration (for staying), and we oppose that kind of deal,” said Powers, who noted UT’s decision to remain in the Big 12 essentially came down to what was in the best interests of the university’s finances, athletes and traditions.

  26. Garret June 16, 2010 5:57 am

    I think that the best thing for UH would be to earn enough BCS points the next few seasons to force the MWC to add them to keep/get their AQ status. One team will dominate the WAC and that team will be needed by the MWC to replace the loss of Utah’s points.

    The teams that are in the MWC will get a lot more attention and exposure after they become an AQ conference and get their next TV deal. The teams that dominate that conference will be attractive in the next round of conference shuffling.

  27. Stephen Tsai June 16, 2010 6:02 am

    I found out about Lefiti the backward way.
    At Monday’s practice, I noticed that Brett Leonard was the center.
    Hmmm That’s odd. So from there I started asking around.

  28. 808ike June 16, 2010 6:05 am


    Nice to hear UH possible advancement into better conference.

  29. 808ike June 16, 2010 6:11 am

    Scott what a rat. Glad he did it. This may have saved UH.

  30. Garret June 16, 2010 6:19 am


    I noticed in your article that Leonard has been practicing at center for a couple of weeks now, so Lefiti’s condition must have been known for awhile. I am curious like Bulla about the length of time it took to discover he needed surgery.

  31. Garret June 16, 2010 6:23 am

    BSU dominated the WAC and moved to the MWC because the MWC needed its BCS points to try to get AQ status. The BCS formula does not care about travel or market size, just wins.

    Utah went to 2 BCS bowls in the MWC and moved to the Pac-12.

    The path has already been shown for UH. Win big and move up. The alternative is not good.

    One bad thing is that if the bottom half of the WAC loses all of its nonconference games, then they will be at the bottom of D-IA again and beating them will not be worth much BCS points. So, the nonconference games for UH will become even more important.

  32. jm2375 June 16, 2010 6:27 am

    Good morning Tsai-kos!

    Best wishes and rapid healing to Mr. Lefiti.

  33. Garret June 16, 2010 6:31 am

    Orlando reporter says that the SEC could make *more* money by dropping a few teams and following the example of the Big 12. This could lead to the big conferences *shrinking* instead of expanding…

    Contraction is the ticket to more money.

    As far as I can tell, here’s how it happened: The loss of Nebraska and Colorado actually helped preserve the Big 12 instead of ruin it. You see, the league will receive just as much TV money now as it did before. The difference, of course, is that the money will be split 10 ways instead of 12, meaning there is enough money now to keep the big boys like Texas, Oklahoma and Texas A&M happy.

    Think about that for a minute: The Big 12 loses two name schools — Nebraska and Colorado — and will make the same amount of TV money without them as they did with them. Not only that but Beebe says he expects future TV revenue to grow even more.

    And that’s after losing Nebraska and Colorado. Think about if the SEC ditched Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Would anybody even notice? Would anybody outside of Mississippi even care?

    Seriously, does anybody really think ESPN would decrease the amount of money it pays the SEC if the league dumped one-Mississippi, two-Mississippi?

    The AP story that made print in the HSA says that the smaller (lesser) schools will be giving up their shares of the exit fees to the Big Three. Is the Statesman story more current?

  39. d1島 June 16, 2010 6:59 am

    I really hope “ferd” is off-base on his column this morning and the Sept. 2 game is a “Go”

    It’s good to remain optimistic, but for all intents and purposes, I don’t believe Sila will be ready for the season. HE might as well begin gathering all the documentation for a medical redshirt year. Foot surgery? Won’t be ready for camp? Well my friends, that is not good prognostications. The bad news is that he has been the understudy of estes and has been in this offense for several years. Sila is a beast, no doubt. HOwever, Bronson T was never that far behind. He’s even bigger than Sila and can make all the calls too. I don’t think there will be too much of a drop off. I think Bronson gonna do fine. The problem lies in the the second team. NOt much experience there.

    The AP story in the HSA is an old story that was already shown to not be true yesterday.

  44. Garret June 16, 2010 7:27 am


    ST’s article even mentions that he might not be available for the USC game either. Unfortunately, he might be in the situation where the medical evidence shows that he has to miss part of the season but not all of the season–then he might not qualify for a medical redshirt, especially if the doctors clear him to play in September.

  45. bb June 16, 2010 7:50 am

    Nice Majam interview with BC this morning.

  46. Garret June 16, 2010 7:59 am

    The Big 12 will let its schools start their own TV networks just like the SEC does. Florida makes a LOT off their network, so Florida actually earns more TV money than Big 10 schools ($17 mil from the SEC, $8 mil from their network > $22 mil for each Big 10 school).

    Industry analysts project Texas could produce up to $5 million per year in additional revenues from the network, once it is established. But those numbers could be low. Florida reportedly makes in excess of $8 million per year from its network, tops among SEC schools.

  47. Buffoman June 16, 2010 8:00 am

    I agree and disagree with Garret on his assertions. First I am intotal agreement with the fact that we have to win and win against those that really count, BSU, FSU, CU and USC (if they’re still around) and not loose stupid. I agree that we need to buff up BCS points to get a look see by MWC.

    Here’s where I differ. The UH needs to set a strategy beyond that. They need to be that west edge team that people will want in their conference and not be the team some conference settles on. How do you do that?

    Invest. If Texas could and the Big 10 could and ND could, why can’t we? We need to get away from the “poor me”, “we’re just a spec in the Pacific”, “cut us a break” mentality and get a new strategy. Let’s become the “we want you” program, from anywhere.

    How? Build that bridge to the Asian market. Be the first one to get in and lock the television market in Korean, China and Japan. The investment would be to build a relationship with universities in those countries that are popular and have some reach into their more populated communities: television revenues. Be that US team that will do numerous home and home games with these folks (get off your marketing butts and go get those countries to sponsor these events). Become that Notre Dame of the Asian/Pacific arena. Can you se Chinese college students wearing the under armor football jerseys all over the place? of the same for the baseball tops in Japan, get the picture?

    When, not if we do that, we will become that team the others will want. At that point, we can be like Texas and not like Kansas hoping crap did not hit the Big 12 fan.

    THis is a business, we want to spur industry? This is an piece of commerce. You think Texas got to where they are because they ran a great educational institution? Somehwere along the line some business guy at that school decuided to make texas athletics a business model and treated it as such.

    Let’s chnage the way we do things. Don’t know about you but that article in the sports section about the teams we’re looking at to fill BSU’s spot about made me hurl. It’s like the WAC strives to be the top bottom feeder in college football. And, we’re supposed to be happy with this?

  48. Garret June 16, 2010 8:02 am

    Oklahoma wants its own TV network but there may not be enough people in Oklahoma to make it a profit.

    Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione said Tuesday that the Sooners are also interested in the possibility and have already invested $3 million in a high-definition video facility on campus, but do not have a time frame for launching the operation.

    Most football and men’s basketball games couldn’t be shown live on the school’s own channel because of national TV contracts through the Big 12. But the channel could broadcast games in those sports that aren’t picked up, along with others from the school’s 21 sports.

    Even student plays and other events from the academic side of the university could be aired.

    What Oklahoma doesn’t have that Texas does is a massive population base that includes some of the country’s largest cities.

    “That would be the big question: whether there’s enough revenue there to warrant going down that road,” said Neal Pilson, a former president of CBS Sports who is now a television consultant. “I know there are in Texas. Probably, it would be marginal in Oklahoma.”

  49. RedZone June 16, 2010 8:06 am

    I wonder who ST is picking? does it squeak?

    Do they have a depth chart for the center position? Wasn’t Faamui also at center?

    ST: What is the timeline for bringing the blog up to its previous quality? I’m think numbered posts, alternative backgrounds to distinguish between posts, and the forward navigation links so we are not posting on three day old blogs.

    Win that Sugar Bowl and probably people would still be talking bout how superior the Warrior program way out in the pacific is, yadah, yadah!

    So, yeah, winning is the magic touch that puts your name up there in the bright lights.

    Hope Lefiti heals quickly. It can take up to 6 months to recover from foot surgery depending on how extensive it is. Hope this was something minor.

  58. papajoe2 June 16, 2010 9:13 am

    the doubt about UH’s Sugar Bowl season was their D1 weakest schedule. after UH won all it games while Colt’s Heisman run, Devone, Ryan and co. was setting records and winning, UH became a curiosity. All doubts was confirmed when they got blown out by Georgia in the Sugar Bowl, then the following years was just mediocore even with a weaker than average schedule. Don’t get me wrong, now. I love and cheer on the Warriors, but like everyone says, this will be their make or break year. Just win baby!

  60. A-House June 16, 2010 9:21 am


    Your post a few days back mentioned that Hawaii residents with Oceanic pay about $5 to ESPN, but on the mainland subscribers pay only $1. Why the difference?

    I feel like ESPN is a kin to Chevron where their bigest profits the past 5 years has been from Hawaii with the sky rocket gas prices. Yet, they always come up with the “reason” that it’s a small market with little competition. If so, how can they justify making the biggest profit from this tiny state?

  61. Old Diver June 16, 2010 9:22 am

    Garret hope you have a nice vacation, but before you go, do you expect the MWC to qualify to be a BCS conference next year without Utah? Would adding Fresno now make them BCS eligible?

    Intresting article about Lefiti and possible successors. No mention is made of Kahai. Is this because he is only a “red-shirt” freshman?

    Recurring injury as ST identified Lefiti’s foot injury in his article today

    Hmmm that sounds like…(?)

    Plantar Fasciitis is a common athletic injury of the foot.

    Plantar Fasciitis **Prevention**

    1. Warm up properly
    This means not only stretching prior to a given athletic event, but a gradual rather than sudden increase in volume and intensity over the course of the training season. **A frequent cause of plantar fasciitis is a sudden increase of activity without suitable preparation**.

    I know. Stands to reason. Especially when I watched the Warrior football team last year, for what do I see? Ghost calisthenics, ghost stretching and ghost leadership from the coaches so it makes sense that the the athletes incur injuries. With Tommy aboard now, who I heard is doing a better job, the ghost of the past will become a thing of the past. And athletes won’t be as vulnerable to injuries, hopefully. Recovery time, sadly, for Lefiti can be anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months (as what I read off the net) assuming this is the foot injury that Lefiti has.

  69. Garret June 16, 2010 10:10 am


    No, ESPN charges every cable system and satellite system the same amount of money. Hawaii residents pay the same for ESPN as do California and Texas residents. The cable companies (for example, Time Warner owns Oceanic) make deals to get the same price everywhere. Your attack on ESPN is not correct, they are one thing that Hawaii residents don’t pay more for!

    Specialized channels like the Big 10 network get about $1 per TV household in Big 10 states and a dime in states without a Big 10 school. The Pac-12 TV network will be set up the same way, since they have the guy that set up the Big 10 network setting up the Pac-12 network.

  71. Garret June 16, 2010 10:23 am

    Old Diver,

    I honestly think that the MWC would have definitely become an AQ conference if Utah had not left. Now I think they will get AQ status in 2012 with the appeal process if they do well on the field in 2010 and 2011.

    One thing that the MWC might do is add another team *next* year. That way that team would start playing in the MWC in 2012, the same year that Utah starts in the Pac-12.

    Waiting until next year lets the MWC compare the computer averages of their candidates. Houston is predicted to win (or come in #2 to SMU) the C-USA West and Fresno is predicted to be in the top 3 in the WAC. I think that Houston is worth slightly more BCS points now, but 2010 and 2011 are unknowns so far.

    By adding a team next year, the MWC would not be able to count their score towards AQ qualification. However, they would be able to show in their BCS appeal that they are losing Utah in 2012 but replacing them with a similarly strong team. If they did that, I think that the BCS appeal process would grant them AQ status.

    Adding Houston or Fresno would boost their numbers now…but what if either school tanks for the other 2 years that counts towards the evaluation? If I were them I would wait a year and see which team was stronger. Some other team could also rise up and earn their way into consideration.

    Even if the MWC invites a team in 2011 (which would start in 2012), they will probably need to add 1-3 teams in 2012 (which would start in 2013) to boost their average for the 2010/2011/2012/2013 evaluation period.

    One of UH’s big problems is that their conference schedule drags down their computer ranking. If WAC teams such as SJSU, NMSU, La Tech, and Utah State keep taking the $1 million payments to play multiple games at big-budget teams, and if they continue to lose 99.9% of those games, the WAC’s nonconference record will continue to be poor and that means that the WAC will keep getting dragged down in the computer ratings.

    The nice thing about the BCS computer rankings is that they put everything up on their website (click on my name for the link). You can see all 6 computer polls that they use and check on how any school was ranked for that year. You can compute the average for each conference so that you can compare them. You can track the progress of your team week-by-week.

    So, after a win you can see how many BCS points a team earned and you can see the effect a loss has. Everything is done in public. The exact formulas for the some of the computer polls may vary, but they seem to end up with reasonable results…and the BCS has no control over the computer.

    Think of it like a video game. Win points by winning games. If a league earns a high enough score, they become an AQ conference. Unfortunately for the WAC, NMSU, SJSU, and Utah State don’t earn many points.

    Hope Amanda is available to answer questions for Pomai & the Coach about NCAA regs. According to what Amanda previously told me, the donation-in-kind for the bracelets won’t work. NCAA wants to see an invoice paid for by UH (Foundation).

  74. Garret June 16, 2010 10:32 am

    Utah leaving for the MWC is a unique case…they had covered how adding teams (like BSU to the MWC) could help a conference get AQ status, but there had never been a case where losing a team could factor into AQ status. It looks like Utah will NOT count for the MWC in their AQ hopes…that hurts the MWC for their 2012 chances.

    If Utah leaves to join the Pac-10 for the 2012 season, it does in fact take all of its numbers with it. I wasn’t sure because the numbers are calculated for membership on selection Sunday in December 2011. But Bill Hancock, the executive director of the BCS, told me in an e-mail that a team would take its numbers with them.

  75. Kazz June 16, 2010 10:40 am

    Graham Watson said:

    I find this to be odd. I would be curious to see the BCS directive stating that Utah’s 2011 BCS numbers wouldn’t apply to the MWC even though the evaluation would be based on Utah’s last MWC season. Thats if, of course, Utah enters the PAC-10 season in 2012. I can see Thompson inquiring further…

  79. Aaron June 16, 2010 11:26 am

    I doubt the MWC is going to base so much of who they choose on who does good next year. the success of non-BCS schools is very cyclical, mostly because they don’t get the same quality of recruits that large schools get. one team that is good today might be mediocre tomorrow and vice-versa. hawaii is a perfect example of this. the MWC is going to consider long-term success, market viability, and geographic factors before they look at next season’s w-l record. because of that, UH is a long shot at best to get an invite, unless they go undefeated and get to a BCS game this coming season. even that may not be enough unless they agree to pay a ridiculous travel subsidy again.

  80. Garret June 16, 2010 11:30 am


    You are correct that the MWC won’t care about just *1* year. However, they are looking at working towards AQ qualification and that is based on a *4-year* cycle. However, 2 of those 4 years have already been played, so after this season the MWC will be able to see the 3-year averages for their candidate teams. I was only talking about the 2010 performance because I already averaged the 2008 and 2009 seasons for each team.

  81. duffer (iPhone) June 16, 2010 11:36 am

    Does anyone know how much the wbb season tickets were this past season?

  82. Garret June 16, 2010 11:38 am

    By the way, I had some time during my lunch break so I made a spreadsheet that keeps track of the 6 computer rankings for certain teams (UH, Houston, Nevada, and Fresno). The BCS formula cares about 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011, so I organized my spreadsheet that way. Each year the highest and lowest computer score for each team is thrown out and the rest of the scores are averaged, so I had the spreadsheet do that.

    I was surprised to find out that Nevada was actually rated higher by the computers than Fresno! I also was surprised to find out that Houston *blew away* all WAC teams aside from BSU. If you just look at the team rankings and throw out the highest and lowest computer rating each year like the BCS says, here is the comparison:

    Houston: 50.3
    Nevada: 60.6
    Fresno: 64.3
    Hawaii: 74.8

    The BCS then takes this number and scales it to a different scale, but the important thing is to compare schools. Houston is far above the other non-AQ candidates for 2008/2009 and both Nevada and Fresno are pretty close.

    I’ll update this as 2010 goes along. My computations are a little incomplete because I could find the 2008 numbers for Massey and Wolfe, but the other 4 computer rankings were pretty close to those 2 in other years so these are probably good comparison numbers.

  83. Garret June 16, 2010 12:12 pm

    Jerry Jones is going to throw his money behind getting *Arkansas* and *Notre Dame* to complete the Big 12? Arkansas did have more success with the Texas schools in their conference (they got a lot of recruits from Texas back then) than they have had in the SEC…so, if the money was the same I could see that.

    The Big 12 will let every school have their own TV network…that might appeal to a school like Notre Dame since the Big 10 Network forbids any Big 10 school from having their own TV deal.

    Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, former University of Arkansas football player and big-time power broker in the world of professional and now college athletics, is the driving force behind a potential move that would make the Big 12 the most compelling conference in the history of college football.

    Jones, according to a source familiar with his thinking, wants his alma mater to play in a league with former Southwest Conference rivals Texas and Texas A&M. A visionary, Jones sees the Big 12 expanding with Arkansas and Notre Dame. Such a conference alignment turns on TV sets across America and sends cash gushing out of Big 12 faucets everywhere.

    Since moving to the SEC, Arkansas football, once a loud national brand, has faded. Lack of SEC television exposure in Texas, at least until the past couple of years, has eroded what used to be the Razorbacks’ primary recruiting base.

    For his own sake, Lefiti shuld start collecting medical records just in case planned recovery does not go as planned.

    Even if he is cleared to play by 8/1/2010, his physical strength will be concern as he will be limited in doing lower body workout/coodinaion. Thus, I cannot see him even playing on 9/2 and make the road trip to NY and CO. Atophied muscles will take a long time to regain what has been lost and being out 6 or more weeks is a bunch!

    Good afternoon everyone!

    I was paying bills this morning. Very disturbing when the checks are gone before the deposit slips…especially if you don’t have automatic deposit 🙁 Looks like Richie’s cuisine for my cattle call budget.

    I am hopeful the rumored lead candidate for the UH coaches position gets the job. Maybe he can make things more interesting.

    It was interesting when June Jones’ Run & Shoot started winning.
    It was more interesting when Timmy Chang strove for the NCAA passing record.
    ESPN started to get interested. Backed the Hawaii Bowl.
    It was very interesting when Colt Brennan starting throwing 500 yard games
    ESPN got very interested. Multiple broadcasts.
    Super interesting when Colt started to break a bunch of records
    Other sports media got interested and expanded coverage of UH
    Teams backing out of playing UH gains more interest
    Very interesting UH + undefeated season = impossible to ignore.
    Sugar Bowl

    No, I don’t expect miracles, but it could be interesting if we go back and “dance with who brung us” a little.

  98. A-House June 16, 2010 1:25 pm


    Several Tsaikos have been pushing for the WAC to invite UNLV and SDSU. The games with UNLV has been most benefical to UNLV as any game with Hawaii in LV has been a “garan” sellout and one of 2 games, other being Wisconsin, where UNLV makes most of their revenue and boosts its attendance figures.

    Can you give us a “heads-up” on Aztec status: stadium to play in; financial condition; fan support, etc.

    I know you posted several times earlier that both would “lose’ $$ if they joined the WAC. Why would they consider moving to the WAC?

    Any idea if the NCAA will begin to push its 15,000 average attendance before schools get disqualified from D1 status?

  99. A-House June 16, 2010 1:28 pm


    ARe you saying thhat JJ will forsake this $2 million salary at SMU and return to coach the Warriors? What is your time line on this? It would be very interesting if this happens!!!

  100. Kekoa June 16, 2010 1:33 pm

    Buffoman ~ One key issue I agree with you is on UH public relations, and their lack of a ‘good’ one. Some of your ideas are very valid points to consider, and the glue that holds it all together is marketing with an outstanding PR firm.

    It’s been brought up by others on the blog every so often, but then it always gets killed off when someone mentions ‘paying’ for it. I don’t know why that becomes an issue. A really hot PR company can generate more than enough money to sustain itself and grow profits for UH within the current budget.

    So I agree Buffoman, let’s get away from that “poor UH” attitude and create our own revenue. We have a lot to promote here.

    Pomai and other Tsaiko blog dogs have come up with some really great promotional ideas to help. Yes Compliance is an issue, but not a barrier.

    Looking at all the big time schools gives you several examples of what they do to keep their image out there. They are very good at MARKETING their images on wearable items or products that bring revenue in and become an advertiser’s dream!

    I would urge expansion of the Rainbow Boutique by putting that mobile van they have on the road. Every weekend, position it at high volume shopping area parking lots. Lease a storefront in Kapolei and stack it with all the stuff they have been hoarding in the Bookstore. What about Waikiki? or Windward? The military exchanges have an ample display, but they could use more variety.

    Time for this school to “get off their duff and promote their stuff!”

    Let’s Go Warriors!

  101. Aaron June 16, 2010 1:36 pm

    the June Jones train left a long time ago. he will have no interest in coming back to Hawaii unless we really bottom out. he likes turning programs around but doesn’t necessarily enjoy maintaining them. the emotional rewards aren’t as great for him.

  102. A-House June 16, 2010 1:41 pm

    I firmly beleive that an Asia Pacific sports conference would be a winnah for baseball, softball, men/women VB and basketball, track & field, diving & Swimming, men/women golf, men/women soccer. Top 2 universities from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, PRC, Phillippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia/NewZealand, and Hawaii. Can even consider fencing. Only language problem may be with PRC, but with their headway into global economics their top tier university/college must require English as a 2nd language.

    To minimize cost, each must have mens and womens teams travel together and compete with the “host” country’s teams.

    Each country can broadcast over its own TV network with all contributing to “shared” cost of a satellite feed. Maybe PBS can challenge K5 for rights to broadcast in Hawaii.

    It woudl be a very good venue to view, first hand, any future olympians.

    Also good for tourism and State of Hawaii and language dept at UH and all community colleges.

    A-House — I was referring to one of the candidates for the coaching position that ST mentions above. He was the mentor for JJ and credited as the father of the “Run & Shoot”.

    Interesting is exciting. You can only break so many records but got to get/peak the interest of the national media somehow. Potent offense… akin to the Wahine softball team putting balls over the fence. Breaking NCAA records. 🙂

  105. A-House June 16, 2010 2:02 pm


    That’s a good idea if he will be a mentor to Rolo and the “receivers” coach.

    However, Coach Mack did mention the “quality” applicants for the job. Wonder what the future holds for us fans?

  106. Garret June 16, 2010 2:05 pm


    Tsaikos and other UH fans like to post that UNLV and SDSU should return to the WAC, but there really is no realistic reason why that would happen unless the MWC broke up.

    1. They would get $3 million less.

    2. They would have increased travel costs (Ruston, Honolulu).

    3. Both schools have had more success in basketball than football–moving to the WAC would be a big step down for a sport that makes both schools a lot of money. The MWC had 4 men’s NCAA tournament teams this year (more than the Pac-10) and had far more ranked teams than the WAC.

    4. They have a chance to be in an AQ conference. If they leave the MWC, they would actually *guarantee* that the MWC would pass the AQ bar, but even if they stay they have a chance that in 2 or 4 years they will be in an AQ conference. That is a big prestige difference and about $1 million per year per school more.

    5. When the new TV contracts get negotiated, do you think the MWC with BSU will get more or the WAC without BSU?

  107. Garret June 16, 2010 2:08 pm

    How could you have a sports conference with Japan, Australia, and Hawaii? The travel time would kill the grades of all of the athletes. Right now many sports play 2 games per week (Thursday/Saturday or Friday/Sunday)…I’d hate to tell an athlete they had to play in Australia on Thursday and Japan on Saturday.

    Other problems are that the countries don’t care about the same sports and there is no market in those countries for many of the sports that UH would like to play.

    A-House your idea of the “Asia Pacific sports conference” is a good idea but I see it a lot further down the road, you need to entice those countries into being fans first, then groom them for something like you suggest. I think the first step would be to get a few players from those countries on our teams so that the different countries would start to follow the Warriors. I suggested a long time ago that we should recruit some baseball players from Japan, seeing how popular baseball is there.

    To be considered for membership in the NIRA a student must be attending a college or university listed in the current publication of Accredited Institutions of Post Secondary Education.

    The student must be in good standing while taking at least 12 academic credit hours (9 of which are passed credits) each term and maintaining a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) at all times.

    A student has 6 years of eligibility from the date of high school graduation to purchase 4 NIRA membership cards. In the case of GED certification the contestant’s 18th birthday is used as the beginning eligibility date.

    Contestants compete in saddle bronc, bareback, bull riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, and goat tying.

    The NIRA is the governing body of college rodeo. One of the primary goals of the NIRA is to establish and maintain standards for conducting intercollegiate rodeo competition. It seeks to promote intercollegiate rodeo on a national scale by bringing national recognition as an organized and standard collegiate sport and to promote interest, understanding, and appreciation, and vigilance over Western life and culture. NIRA student members are offered the opportunity to bring national recognition to their colleges and universities through rodeo competition. The NIRA is divided into 11 regions with over 135 colleges and universities having a recognized rodeo organization on their campus. Many other colleges and universities who do not have rodeo clubs are represented by independent members. Members compete in approximately 10 rodeos a year trying to earn a trip to the College National Finals Rodeo.

  121. d1島 June 16, 2010 2:32 pm

    Often dubbed the “Rose Bowl” of college rodeo, the College National Finals Rodeo hosts over 350 cowboys and cowgirls each year. These college athletes come together each June to compete for college national titles and over $200,000 in scholarships through the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. Scholarship Awards Program (SM).

    I agree with much of what Buffoman says. However, investing won’t change the population of Hawaii and there are some limitations there. If Oklahoma may not be able to get enough people to watch to get a TV network to break even (with 3x the population and a much bigger national draw), having UH start its own TV network to cover the US is not feasible. Texas didn’t have to work hard to get a big fan population…they live in a large state that loves football.

    The Asian market *is* a good idea. UH has been trying what seems like forever to build that market. However, what people should know is that the *Pac-10* schools have been working on this for a long time. They have understood about trying to tap the Asian market and did exactly what buffoman suggested by going after all of the Universities in Japan.

    When the University of Tokyo wanted a US partner to work with on solar energy research, they picked *Arizona State*. That research project already have over $100 million in funding.

    The Japanese government set up 5 World Premier International Research Centers. to promote research AND SPORTS throughout Japan. One of those research centers is iCeMS (bioscience, medical research, etc.) at Kyoto University and they selected UCLA as their exclusive partner.

    The University of Tokyo has another one of the 5 World Premier International Research Centers and they are using some of that funding to fund their research collaboration and educational exchange they signed with Cal just this past December.

    USC’s school of engineering has partnerships with Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan, 4 of the biggest Universities in China, 3 in Korea, and 1 in Taiwan. Their pharmacy school has formal partnerships with 6 Universities in Japan, 2 in China, 2 in Korea, etc.

    One prominent University in Kyoto (Doshisha University) has an exchange program with Stanford and Stanford has a building on their campus where they work on joint projects. Stanford established a location in Japan 21 years ago and Doshisha University gave them a lot of incentives (including a free building, free utilities, etc.) to move to their campus.

    Stanford also set up an institute that helps startup companies throughout Japan. They have a unique expertise in that area with all of the startups they incubated at their campus. I took their Entrepreneurial Engineering class and you would be amazed at how the founders of HUGE companies come back to the school to teach for free about their experiences.

    RE-utah and colorado going to the pac-10 does it affect the out of conference scheduling for them? and also the games that were on the future schedules of utah and colorado with the pac-10? i think it would.

    so it looks like utah and colorado are going to the pac-10

    I looked at utahs out of conference schedule for 2011,2012,2013

    they have 5 out of conference games presently scheduled with the pac-10 schools (oregon 9/17/11, washington st 8/30/12, colorado 9/22/12, washington st. 9/14/13, colorado 9/21/13)

    would those game be voided now?

    would that also mean that oregon 9/17/11, washington st 8/30/12, colorado 9/22/12 ,washington st. 9/14/13, colorado 9/21/13 will then become open dates to those schools

    and would utah be looking to re-schedule 5 new opponents in filling their out of conference schedule for those years once they enter the pac-10? and would oregon have to look to fill one spot on their schedule in 2011? and the same with washington in 2012? colorado 2012? washington st. 2013? colorado in 2013?

    also when you take a look at boise’s out of conference schedule for the next 4 years 2012 -BYU 2013-BYU 2014-BYU 2015-BYU would those games be voided and would boise be then having to look to scheduling a different opponent in filling their out of conference schedule?

    even when i looked at colorado’s future schedule – 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 they will have to void their out of conference games with wash, oregon, arizon st, arizona st and replace those teams with other opponents?

    does hawaii have any openings on their schedule?

    maybe get rid of a cupcake like lamar and play a noteworthy game would be my wish.. seems like the availability of games are out there now

    Speaking of the Bash….

    Okay gang…once again, it is time to announce an event of epic proportions…Okay, well, maybe not that epic…but going be big…well, I guess all Tsaiko events are big…anyway….

    Blog Bash 4

    The Tsaikos will once again gather to celebrate the blog and the 5 Fs that have made this a special community and loyal supporters of UH sports. This is another chance for the old timers to meet again and for any new Tsaikos/lurkers to finally come out of the woodwork and meet this fun group in person. Please join us.

    All-You-Can-Eat Buffet:

    – White Rice
    – Toss Green Salad
    – Macaroni Salad
    – Fried Noodles
    – Kalbi Short Ribs
    – Salmon w/Teri-Miso Sauce
    – Boneless Fried Chicken
    – Sheet cakes
    – Coffee
    – Fruit Punch
    – Water
    – Tsaiko made pupus/desserts

    Fountain Sodas and Alcohol (cash and carry) – purchase from restaurant

    Time: 4:00 p.m. Pupus/drinks/meet and greet
    6:00 p.m. Buffet dinner/music/program
    10:00 p.m. Start closing down

    Cost: $30 per person. Tax & Tip included*

    *Please note that any remaining funds from this event will be placed into the Tsaiko account for use by the UH Athletic Department.

    RSVP and further details to follow….but save the date.

    Do I see date? Can’t see one on this post.

    The reason that I ask is that I have this event down on my calendar as 8/7/10. I’m just trying to make sure that I have the correct date.

    Last night in conversation with Koakane, he told me that the bash was on 10/7, then he said 10/12. Then he said no it’s on the day when we play away at UTEP.

    So now I am confused. I don’t know whether to believe my own calendar or to believe Koakane?

    UTEP? Huh?

  137. Garret June 16, 2010 3:33 pm

    Good idea by roysan16 to look up the schedules for Utah, Colorado and BSU.

    UH’s schedule for 2011 and 2012 are full, but there is an opening (probably for a road game) in 2013 and lots of other openings after that. It looks like UH won’t be adding any Colorado games for 2014/2015 since they are already scheduled, but maybe Utah might have an opening. We should note that the MWC/Big 12 plays 8 conference games now and the Pac-10 plays 9 conference games now, so both Utah and Colorado might have *less* nonconference games to schedule.

    09/03 Colorado

  140. Committed Road Warrior June 16, 2010 3:57 pm

    Here is Utah’s 2012 and 2013 out-of-conference schedule currently:

    8-30 Washington State
    9-8 @ Utah State
    9-22 @ Colorado
    9-29 Boise State

    8-31 Utah State
    9-14 @ Washington State
    9-21 Colorado
    9-28 @ Boise State

    Two of those OOC games will be gone once they start Pac 10/12 play. Even though Utah will likely have one “less” out-of-conference game once they go BCS, how many of their “new found” vacancies will be devoted to keeping BYU on their schedule? Should they pursue that path, of course…

  141. Committed Road Warrior June 16, 2010 3:59 pm

    In my previous post:

    I meant one “less” out-of-conference game in comparison to the current 9-game conference slate played by the Pac 10 right now. Utah would still have 8 conference games when they move from the MWC to the Pac 10/12.

    Hi wafan!

    Thanks. That bleachereport was a good read. What do you think of his arguments about Hawaii’s inclusion into the PAC10 or PAC12 as it is in this case?

    BTW- That was one article about re-alignment which didn’t make my head wanna explode. Thanks again.

  149. madeinhawaii June 16, 2010 4:35 pm


    The article states that Portland ST would be non-football until they and the other schools, too, can build up their fan base. The other schools that the article suggests as “football” programs are already FBS or ready with money, fans, facilities, and support.

    Imagine if UH students had voted for the Max of $20 per credit for their activity fee like Northern Texas U?

    Interesting conversation this afternoon. A dad who works at Boeing asked then argued that a 58.53% was close enough to passing . . . so I should just give his kid a “D” so he can graduate. I held my ground. But, he kept going. I had enough so I finally asked him if he was willing to fly in a Boeing plane if the wing was not quite affixed correctly but was definitely close enough. Heck, what is a rivit or two, anyhow?

    He stopped. Laughed, and said he understood. I suggested they look at an on-line class the kid can complete in the next four to five weeks.

    Too bad the kid made poor decisions and is the way he is . . . darn helicopter parent. Should be interesting when the kid goes to college or goes to work.

  152. Garret June 16, 2010 4:54 pm

    U-Dub might have to cancel the 2013 game since that would be on the day of the Pac-12 title game.

    I think that CRW’s mention of BYU is the most likely use of one of Utah’s extra spots in their schedule each season.

    I was sure that both Fresno State and Nevada (and probably UH) have been hoping for an invitation to the MWC…but I never would have expected *Utah State* would be trying to get into the MWC!

    Aggie fans, for the most part, welcomed the news of Utah moving onward and upward to the Pac 10 with excitement.

    Why? Because if ever there was an opportunity for Utah State to join BYU in a conference it might be now.

    Still, there has been some contact between USU president Stan Albrecht and administration at MWC offices and schools, a source at USU said.

    “I know President Albrecht was on the phone with people at BYU (Wednesday) morning talking about conference expansion,” the source said. “I don’t know who initiated the contact, but I know there has been outreach.”

  158. kama krab June 16, 2010 5:20 pm

    d1 and K. Mark Takai,

    I actually also liked that article because it actually made sense. In all the scenario’s discussed his arguments made to much sense. Yes, the small TV market and travel cost are very big draw backs but as the writer stated with the right conference (Pac-12) and with the right money ($13 million a year) those two aspects could be offset.

    I am sure if Hawaii joining the Pac-? ever happen, it would be a big boost to the school financially and to the reputation of the school.

    But of course, Money talks and unfortunately Hawaii walks.

  159. whitey June 16, 2010 5:20 pm

    wafan, what college the kid going to??? UDub or Wazzu. hahahahahha

  160. kama krab June 16, 2010 5:25 pm

    That’s gotta be a bunch of Bull,

    If USU gets into the MWC that would be just crap. Yes USU has a good basketball team in both men’s and women’s but what else do they have. They do not bring much to the table when speaking of BCS points. Yes they are close to BYU but what else. This is just getting out of hand. Pretty soon you going see reports stating that NMSU trying to get into the Big-12. This is just nutz.

  161. wafan June 16, 2010 5:28 pm

  168. Garret June 16, 2010 6:21 pm

    This article is from an Orlando TV station, but there are at least 5 different places mentioning this…the Big East may be inviting Central Florida and Memphis in less than a week! The Big East is worried about being raided by the Big 10 and they only have 8 football schools right now.

    Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore is reporting that multiple college football sources have said that the University of Central Florida and Memphis could be invited to join the Big East conference as soon as next week.

    UCF and Memphis are currently part of Conference USA.

  169. Garret June 16, 2010 6:22 pm

    C-USA might need to replace both teams with La Tech an obvious choice according to what I’ve read. They could stay at 10 and not add La Tech, or they could decide to go to 12 teams and invite NMSU and La Tech…so, the WAC might still lose more teams.

  170. Garret June 16, 2010 6:24 pm

    Colorado Springs newspaper has other speculation that could be bad for the WAC. The mention of SMU makes me think this is just speculation since SMU would drop the MWC’s BCS average due to 2008.

    By adding three more members from a possible list of candidates such as Fresno State, Nevada, Houston or SMU, the Mountain West also could increase to 12 teams and have a football championship game.

    Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson has scheduled a news conference for Thursday afternoon to talk about the league’s plans.

  171. Garret June 16, 2010 7:00 pm

    Texas’ head coach talked about the importance of money in today’s Athletic Departments.

    “Last year, I think, I was told, that only 19 athletic programs in America that play Division I football made some money. Everyone else is in trouble. For anyone to think that the money is not important, is fooling themselves. For anyone to think that money is not made by the football programs, it is. Some people have said that Texas was greedy. Bill Powers, Deloss Dodds and my job are to take care of Texas.

  172. A-House June 16, 2010 7:07 pm


    went to the rodeo site you mentioned and looked at the teams in the Rocky Mountain, West region, and big Sky and Boise St is not listed in any of those regions.

    So, where did Boise St get points for rodeo for Pres cup points in the WAC?

  173. Garret June 16, 2010 7:27 pm


    The WAC doesn’t give any points for rodeo. People were just joking about that, trying to say that BSU got points for things that didn’t matter. BSU won the WAC in football, soccer, swimming & diving, women’s tennis.

  174. A-House June 16, 2010 7:28 pm

    Despite Garret’s put down, the Asia market is where UH needs to secure a foot hold in sports.

    Yes, some PAC 10 schools have an “academic” foothold in several top notch universities in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea, but has anyone of them invited any student athlete to join their teams? I don’t believe so because in the “American mind” bigger is always better.

    Pomai’s suggestion may be that first step is securing “sports” interest in UH; UH should not only look for the best student athlete, but one or two to make a team and build from there.

    Will agree with Garret that the “time” difference maybe a major factor for Hawaii, but there is more than one way to eat a french fry – someone will come up with a heck of a schedule in the future. The time zone difference between Japan/S Korea/Taiwan and PRC and Singapore and Australia is one or 2 or three hours and in the same time zone unlike Hawaii which is plus one day late minus 4 hours. Which means if it’s midnight in Hawaii, its 8pm the next day in Japan. To Singapore, its also plus one day minus 6 hours. Hope my memory from my military days is still strong. Did I get this correct?

    Boise St beat Hawaii in swimming and diving?

  176. Garret June 16, 2010 7:34 pm

    Re-The post game celebration tomorrow

    If the Lakers win game seven and the NBA Championship tomorrow will there be celebration and rioting on the streets outside the Staples Center?


    Past history shows when the Lakers won at home in 2000 70 vehicles were destroyed, including 2 police cars.

    For tomorrow’s game hundreds of police are being deployed.

    With USC being stripped of two bowl games will this also give the rioters and celebrators added reasons to potentially go overboard tomorrow and cause bigger destruction.

    I’m hoping nothing happens. In fact maybe it’s best that the Celtics win, and the city of Los Angeles will be sheltered from the post game celebration, rioting and destruction.

  184. A-House June 16, 2010 8:44 pm

    I guess over the next 7-10 days, we will learn what transpired in the WAC conference call today. Jim D mentioned that he will not acknowledge the “solidarity clause” amongst the remaining WAC members which leads one to believe that Fresno and Nevada and possibly Hawaii would not sign on to.

    If so, this must have been a jolt to other members!

    Jim D also mentioned the continuing 2-way commo between UH and PAC 10.

  185. A-House June 16, 2010 8:46 pm


    on the other hand, if LA loses, which I hope, the fans may just be pissed enough to riot as their Lakers were favored to win the championship.

    I agree the Lakers should win tomorrow A-House. With the Celtics center unable to play, odds makers favor Laker by 7.5 pts. If Odom (the Laker player) plays like there’s a fog (this is what I heard on the radio) then the game is a toss up. Ahh, game 7 exciting, exciting, exciting.

    Feast or famine on the blog crawl, huh? For a while, it looked like anytime someone updated a blog, it generated a new hyperlink and left the old one there. I found you guys by using Safari top sites. 😉

    Wow!…Numbers are in place now, and every other post is shaded. I’m wondering how long this will last.

    …and as soon as I posted that little bit of news, the numbers disappeared and no shady spots! Hrmfh@$#@!

    The Pac-12 will apparently play *9* conference games. That is really bad for UH since if they had reduced to 8 conference games then more Pac-12 games would be available to other conferences. This also means that Utah will have some trouble with their scheduling–if they want to play BYU every year, they will have to bump their scheduled game with BSU.

    Utah would play all five schools in its division every year …

    Then four of the other six …

    It would work in 3-yr cycles …

    This way the northern schools play in LA 2 out of 3 years … this was the Great Compromise … plus the northern schools do not have to compete against USC for a chance in the CCG …

    So in a 3-yr cycle … the Utes would play home and home with the Northern Division schools … instead of the normal 4 years in the 5-3 scheduling model …

    It is time that the the 2nd tier of non qualifying AQ conferences start taking a look at forming their own division. Maybe some in the qualifying AQ conferences, 2nd tier team may want to consider and join in too.

    A new division in college sports which can create new rules of competing, recruiting, playoff qualification, and conference rewards on how each conference does against another conference.

    The schools not getting what the big and wealthy schools are getting should disband and leave these 30 or so schools. Let these 30 schools play amongst themselves and as time goes on interest will wane. The reality is half will have winning records and half will not. 50% of their games will lack the interest after a while.

    The other 70 to 80 schools can start creating better ways that will continue to bring money and competitiveness to all. By playing only with teams of the new division and not the other 30, will help build the identity and image of the new division. The new division should not be concerned about what the 30 or so schools do from that point on. As time goes on new rivalries will be created in the new division. Nationwide interest can be developed in crowning a school champion in every sport.

    Also depending on the sport an all star conference team to play amongst other conference all stars to determine a conference champion. This will create conference interest and fans of each conference will not only be backing their school but their conference as well. Greater interest and support will be created during conference all stars playoff games. Conference identity, loyalty and pride will be born. Networks will like this too because every fan from each conference will have an interest bringing more viewers to conference all star playoffs.

    Believe me that the majority of the 2nd tier schools in or not in an AQ conference can create a better and greater division in the long run to benefit all members and all have the opportunity a chance to play in a championship game. The goal is not how much a school can profit but how all can compete and stay afloat financially with the support of one another with a chance to be a champion. Not like the system today which is basically controlled by the 30 or so schools. The best in any sports needs the weaker ones to look better and garnish the rewards. With the 70 to 80 teams not following the top 30 or so it will force the 30 to conform one day to the success of the new division. The majority rules not the minority. The needs of the many are more important than the needs of a few.

    Some readers just don’t realize, like my nephew who couldn’t visualise the actual substance of this section on your post “… that center Matagisila Lefiti, who was understudy to ironman John Estes the past two seasons, will miss …” it makes me to feel brighter after reading it.

    I strive to catch ’em all ! Meaning ways to make money.
    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=http://proactolmart.com]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.
    So do me and yourself a favor and check it out. [url=http://proactolmart.com]Weight Loss for Men.[/url]
    Bye to everyone.
