Thoughts, prayers for Chow’s wife

Head coach Norm Chow will remain on the mainland to be with his wife Diane, who underwent a procedure for a brain aneurism Friday evening at the UCLA Medical Center.

Barring any unforeseen complications, Chow will return to Honolulu on Monday night.

The Warriors usually have only meetings and conditioning drills on Mondays.

Daronte’ Jones, the team’s assistant head coach, will handle Chow’s administrative duties during his absence. Jones will take Chow’s place on tonight’s “Inside Access” coach’s show on OC Sports.

The Warriors play Wyoming this coming Saturday at Aloha Stadium.

  4. Shoko October 5, 2014 7:12 am

    Oh, I had thought she had been admitted sometime on Saturday.

    I imagine having to worry about a love one in the hospital and coaching a football game at the same time can be overwhelming for most.

    Prayers to Chow and the Ohana.

    Chow Chow should resign today and take of his wife. Family first. He living and coaching in Hawaii as his wife is ill in LA will eat at him.

  13. Markazulu October 5, 2014 7:59 am

    To lighten the mood I’m watching the rice game.
    Luke shawley played phenomenal. He literally was pressuring the qb almost every play. Great to see Fonua get some well deserve playing time at LB.

    Medical science, modern diagnostics, and treatments are amazing.

    In addition to Trevor Davis’ 4 TD performance (including 2 100 yd kickoff returns); former LB Tyler Gray had a pick 6 for as MLB for Boise State last night vs. Nevada.

  19. Markazulu October 5, 2014 8:37 am

    I will say Rice d line was impressive. Great to see woosley at least run with no hesitation. I wonder how the offense would’ve looked if kirkwood,Hayes,stubble field didn’t get hurt or transferred

  20. Ipu Man October 5, 2014 8:38 am

    What matters in life is life itself. And love. And your loved ones.

  35. ArcumFortis October 5, 2014 10:00 am

    Best wishes and blessings to the Chow ohana. It must have been extraordinarily difficult for coach Chow to be engaged and focused on the game and then to be a source to strength and support his demoralized team after the loss.

    It seems like whatever adversity is possible falls upon coach Chow and our Warriors. As is said, there are 7 years of feast and 7 years of feminine, 7 good years and 7 bad. The team’s last good year was 2007. Maybe we will be done soon and turn the corner.

  36. jm2375 October 5, 2014 10:03 am

    Good morning Hawaii!

    Fast healing to Mrs. Chow.

    massive carnage in the top 25 rankings for college football after this past weekend. UH is also moving on up in the bottom 25 poll as well.

  39. nutmegger October 5, 2014 11:37 am

    Most things are more important than a football game. My thoughts go out to the Chows.

  40. Boolakanaka October 5, 2014 12:40 pm

    Family is the constant in all of our lives….Chow ohana is in thoughts and prayers.

    Arcum, you may be on to something…many Wall Street types subscribe to a 7 year boom and bust cycle.

    Such a premise is very controversial – some of you will love it, and some of you will think that it is utter rubbish – so I just present the bare bone facts below for you decide for yourself if it is something to seriously consider protecting yourself from in 2015.

    As can be seen below economic crashes of one kind or another occur approximately every 7 years going all the way back to the Great Depression.

    2008 :Lehman Brothers collapsed, the stock market crashed and we were plunged into the worst recession that we have experienced as a nation since the Great Depression.

    2001: The dotcom bubble burst, there was a year of recession for the U.S. economy, big trouble for stocks and that little event known as “9/11″ happened that year.

    1994: Yields on 30-year Treasuries jumped some 200 basis points in the first nine months of the year, hammering investors and financial firms, not to mention thrusting Mexico into crisis and bankrupting Orange County.

    1987:The stock market plummeted..

  41. pollypicador October 5, 2014 1:23 pm

    Chow has always talked about how the football being odd shaped, oblong, and how it takes funny bounces on the football field. Now at his deepest hour I pray that Chow’s proverbial football bounces favorably his way. This is the one that counts the most. Prayers and well wishes to Chow, Diane and family.

  42. Boolakanaka October 5, 2014 2:23 pm

    In non-hawaii football news, good news all the way around. 3 prong, Linfield put it up their rival PLU 41-14, my boy Doug Semones has Occidental looking sharp, nice win over Laverne. And boola U, put it on big red, winning 51-13–the Eli are 3-0!!!

  43. gigi-hawaii October 5, 2014 2:52 pm

    I hope that Diane recovers 100%.
    I noticed an obituary for Norm’s mother in today’s Star-Advertiser. Her funeral is set for Fri, Oct 10 at Star of the Sea Church.

  44. lawaia October 5, 2014 3:36 pm

    Best wishes and speedy recovery for Mrs. Diane Chow and God Bless Coach Chow and family.

  45. 3-Prong October 5, 2014 3:51 pm

    Thank boo. Congrats to Boola-Boola U too!

  46. obachan October 5, 2014 4:49 pm

    @#40 Boo – you might want to read “The Mystery of the Shemitah” by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn which recently debuted at #5 on the Amazon bestseller list. It delves into the 7 year cycles.

  47. jeezy33 October 5, 2014 5:05 pm

    Chow should seriously focus on Family and resign.. Prayers to his family but college football is a business and someone needs to run it properly

  48. wow October 5, 2014 6:08 pm

    Jeezy33 you win for the classless post of the day….

  49. Z October 5, 2014 6:11 pm

    Get well Mrs Chow. My best to the Chow ohana.

  50. cocobean October 5, 2014 6:44 pm

    Family first. The Chow ohana has always shown class and dignity. Get well soon Diane.

  51. PONO October 5, 2014 6:48 pm

    Good energy to Chow and Family.

  52. RiceOwlsFan October 5, 2014 6:48 pm

    We send our prayers for a full and speedy recovery to Diane Chow.

  54. Hon2255 October 5, 2014 7:16 pm

    That sudden baddest headache can easily kill you fairly quickly hope she can make it back to normal but it will take a long period of healing. Take care if family person.

    Prayers for Chow Ohana

  56. A-House October 5, 2014 7:21 pm

    Houston and/or Texas:

    Like Colorado, Nevada, and Texas there is “boku” empty space for development, yet many developments have the houses very close to each other; close to the “zero lot line” concept.

    In Colorado, I was told that developers are faced with additional infrastructure costs if the houses were too far apart.

    In Nevada, it was/is the ownership of Federal land that keeps the houses close together. I was unaware of so much land owned by the Federal Gov’t in and around Vegas.

    For Texas, I did not ask, but many new and older subdivisions seems to be zero lot concept – you sneeze and your neighbor hears you.

    And lastly, 99 Club drove 6 and 1/2 hours to reach Houston for the Rice game. It’s always nice to see and chat with him. Too bad the drive home was not be most pleasant.

    Tired and will hit the “hay” – up since 5 am Huston time which is 2 hours ahead of Vegas.

  57. NorthShoreFan October 5, 2014 8:15 pm

    Guud Evening Tsaikos…bootiful night.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the Chow Ohana. It’s been a very tough few days for the Chow Ohana.

    I’m disappointed big time with some of the post today. Clueless and totally classless individuals. I will definitely skip over any of their post.

    Not sure what happened to the O-line but too many sacks.

    Warriors, heal up and get ready for conference play. IMUA WARRIORS!

  58. beans October 5, 2014 9:12 pm

    Chow is a good man who has always handled his situations with class. Our hearts are with him and his wife and family.

  59. iwonderwhytheyhateme October 5, 2014 9:26 pm

    Today is a good day to post as a human being and not a fan. I wish Mrs. Chow the best and my thoughts are with the entire Chow Ohana. Warrior Nation stands with you.

    So much more important things in life than football.

    Good Morning 808
    Great seeing Warrior Beat fans coming together for Chow’s Ohana.
    Hope all is well at UCLA Medical – experienced this great facility and professionals recently.

  63. Markazulu October 6, 2014 6:24 am

    Good morning everybody. Any news on mrs. Chow? I hope she’s doing ok.

  64. tom October 6, 2014 6:32 am


    Some one’s wife is deadly ill; someone’s mother has died; someone’s children have a seriously ill mother; someone’s grandchild have a grandmother who may be in extremes.

    And some people have absolutely no class.

  65. boolakanaka October 6, 2014 6:52 am

    A game is just a game, is a game. If Chow needed and/or wanted to walk away from the game at this moment, I think we most all of us would support him.

    Alas, that is his decision to make……as was told to me once, when at a serious crossroads that needed a decision; don’t think of cost–think of value.

  66. UHfan808 October 6, 2014 7:12 am

    Good morning, Tsai-kos!

    Hope things are going well – saying more prayers for Mrs. Chow.

  67. 3-Prong October 6, 2014 7:26 am

    ….more prayers

  68. A-House October 6, 2014 7:46 am

    It was near unanimous consensus amongst our tour group which included many older, but loyal supporters of UH football that the offensive schemes after 5 games and 2 years that they are tired of it and will either stop supporting the program or pass away before the 2015 season.

    Chow’s philosophy, even amongst the older generation without playing the sport, is not acceptable.

    UH will either lose them by stopping to attend away games or time takes their lives. Some say they will travel to see new places, but not purchase tickets to the Ohio State and Wisconsin games next year and into the future for Kansas and Michigan – why go to the game when UH will be slaughtered!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Already 93 degrees in Vegas and climbing with on breeze.

    Off to meet with EthelM and go see the SLS and have dinner at M Resort..

    All my prayers and healing thoughts go out to the Chow ohana also. Going to be a tough week for them and I hope all the stars of goodness shine down on them.

  71. haka October 6, 2014 8:03 am

    I would also like to add, after reading a certain comment above, jeezy33 is a F*****G A**HOLE!

  72. markazulu October 6, 2014 8:04 am

    I understand if you guys are frustrated we aren’t winning. At the very least though support the young student athletes.

  73. 4-Prong October 6, 2014 8:25 am

    ah, the good ole “support our troops!” argument.

  74. Darren October 6, 2014 8:28 am

    Have no idea how Coach Chow was able to manage his game duties this past weekend…must have been really, really tough for him. Just seeing Mrs. Chow help out with the team a couple of weeks ago, you get the feeling that she’s emotionally invested in this team as much anyone in the athletic department. Best wishes to the entire Chow family.

  75. DaveLetterMan October 6, 2014 8:31 am

    Ding,ding,ding. New post is up. This one might be still open to say your wishes to the Chow ohana.

  76. (Jesse)James October 6, 2014 8:37 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!!!

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Coach Chow and the Chow Ohana. As Boolaboola said in #64…A game is just a game…and “when at a serious crossroads that needed a decision; don’t think of cost–think of value.”

    And to all those posting on other sites as well saying stuff like, “Now maybe Chow will leave and we can get a better coach” or “Good, Chow will resign now.” That’s very human of you…total lack of class. 🙁

  77. DaveLetterMan October 6, 2014 8:41 am

    Oops. My bad. That was DRs blog.

  78. DaveLetterMan October 6, 2014 8:44 am

    I guess I’m the ding ding.

  79. Andrew October 6, 2014 8:51 am

    Thoughts and prayers to the Chow Ohana and a speedy and full recovery for Mrs. Chow. I can’t even begin to imagine how tough it must have been to have that going on while also coaching a football game.
