UH lands JC receiver


Wide receiver Vasquez Haynes of Blinn College told the Warrior Beat he has accepted a scholarship offer from the Warriors.

Haynes is 6-2 and 205 pounds.

Haynes said he made the decision after consulting with his parents Monday night.

Haynes is a second-year freshman at Blinn, a school with UH ties. (Ryan Mouton and Jacob Patek are alumni.) Two good things for UH: 1) Haynes enrolls in January, meaning he can participate in spring training, and 2) He has three years to play three seasons.

Here are the highlights: Haynes video.

* * * * *

Two members of the 2012 recruiting class — defensive end Dejon Allen and cornerback Ronald Fields — remain committed to UH. Both are working on fulfilling eligibility requirements.If they meet them, they join the Warriors in January. Or thereabouts. They could count as 2012 initials.

    NICE get! UH Warrior fan for life!

  2. laulau head December 10, 2012 9:41 pm

    Cheeeee! Now going have sweet dreams! Thanks ST!!

  3. HawaiiMongoose December 10, 2012 9:48 pm

    Great news. Welcome Vasquez!

    Welcome to the Warrior Ohana, Mr. Haynes.

  5. jm2375 (iPad) December 10, 2012 9:50 pm

    Nice to see the Blinn pipeline continuing with the new coaching staff.

  6. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2012 9:57 pm

    I always liked the idea of a JC transfer with three seasons of eligibility remaining.

  7. chawan_cut December 10, 2012 9:59 pm

    Sounds fast

  8. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2012 10:02 pm


    He said he hasn’t been timed in the 40 in a while.

    Interesting that he competed in football, basketball, baseball, swimming and track in high school.

  9. SteveM December 10, 2012 10:06 pm

    Welcome to Warrior Vasquez Haynes!

  10. 3-Prong December 10, 2012 10:14 pm

    VH lookin good on clips. Good combination of size, speed and route running.

  11. HawaiiMongoose December 10, 2012 10:15 pm

    Glad to hear Allen and Fields are still working toward qualifying. Best of luck to them. C’mon Dejon and Ron, get it done in the classroom!

  12. SteveM December 10, 2012 10:18 pm

    ST — 2 blog entries in the same day threw me off…especially when I just woke up from a nap at my computer and thought it was Tuesday morning.

    But it is big news without you having to say it is big news…. 😉

  13. Kendall December 10, 2012 10:22 pm

    Nice get. I hope Dejon makes it here, dude is a beast.

  14. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2012 10:23 pm

    Consider this as Tuesday’s blog entry.

    I was going to wait, but I figured, ah, it’s the offseason. The days all run together, anyway.

  15. SteveM December 10, 2012 10:29 pm

    ST, yup. After my next nap it’ll be breakfast time. I think.

    Are you covering the Hawaii Bowl?

  16. jm2375 (iPad) December 10, 2012 10:31 pm


  17. jeezy33 December 10, 2012 10:36 pm

    Interesting we are bringing in 3 JC WRs. I like Haynes by far the most. Level of competition is higher and he has size and speed. Other recruits need to hit the weight room hard. Also like that he has 3 years. Been wanting to open that Blinn and Navarro JC connection again. Even Arizona Western would be nice.

  18. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2012 10:37 pm


    My editor Paul Arnett was fighting to get me to go to the BCS championship game, saying I was the college football writer. But another editor argued that I was the “UH football writer.”

    Anyway, they asked if I wanted to work the Hawaii Bowl I said, no, I’m the UH football writer.

  19. Stephen Tsai December 10, 2012 10:48 pm

    “Ferd” did a great job at the Heisman.

    Reardon will do a great job at the national championship game.

    Jason Kaneshiro will do an excellent job with the Hawaii Bowl.

    I’ll be Santa at the Christmas Eve party.

  20. kapakahi December 10, 2012 10:50 pm

    That makes 4 new WR commits (Haynes, Howard, Kemp, Polk) at last count…..but hearing that still others are being pursued…..including this week by Demo in the Sunshine State.

    By NLI Day, wouldn’t be surprised to see the WR haul getting upwards of 6 or so new WRs.

    With only Miah and Bright done afer this past season, interesting to see which current scholie WRs stay.

  21. Mauiwarrior December 10, 2012 10:51 pm

    @101 iwonderwhytheyhateme

    Whats the ooc in the 4th year…..don’t wonder toooo much

  22. kapakahi December 10, 2012 10:57 pm


    Forgot to include Amadi leaving.

    BTW if counting DG as among the current scholie WRs, Coach still actively contacting various FCS programs (mostly West Coast and Mountain Time Zone schools) to find a program that would offer DG with a 1-year scholie in order to compete at QB for his remaining senior season in 2013.

  23. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 10, 2012 10:59 pm


    So far Washington and Oregon State both at home. Colorado at CU. BYU at BYU…Although in 2014 the BYU game may not be an OOC game.

    Lots to wonder about. Loooooots.

  24. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 10, 2012 11:02 pm

    Just wait till we get our Haynes on you.

  25. d1shima December 10, 2012 11:02 pm

    Nice get. Welcome to the Warriors Vasquez Haynes.

    Would be nice if the Blinn connection leads to some postseason “bling”…

    Hope the QB’s are loosening up their arms like that little kid in that commercial featuring that other Blinn alum.

  26. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 10, 2012 11:09 pm

    So the Catholic 7even basketball schools aren’t very happy with what the Big LEast is turning into/has become.

    They have the super-majority to possibly do whatever they want to with the conference it seems including 1) Dissolve the league; 2) Retain all the assets; 3) Keeping the branding rights.

    Big LEast is on shaky grounds at best. When oh when do other BCS conferences call for UConn and Cinncy? THAT would be fun to watch.



  27. Mauiwarrior December 10, 2012 11:09 pm

    Haha love the attitude Iwonderwhytheyhateme, I spoke to soon

  28. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 10, 2012 11:12 pm


    I I I I Iwonderwhythey Style. 😉

  29. kapakahi December 10, 2012 11:12 pm


    Good to hear about Dejon Allen & Ronald Fields…..BUT what’s the latest on DE/OLB Quenton Brown?….and LB Penitito Fa’alologo?

    Also, greyshirt CB Anthony Pierce still joining Warriors in January?

  30. Mauiwarrior December 10, 2012 11:13 pm


    The fifth year?

    Looks like norm has a lot of work, seems like he has the right ideas….or at least I hope….ooc schedule seems as tough as ever the next 4 years!

  31. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 10, 2012 11:17 pm


    So far Colorado, BYU, Navy at home. UW at UW.

    Oh yes, it won’t be easy. Will be interesting to see what Mr. Jay can do for us in scheduling more PAC12/B1G schools. If he is successful it raises the bar. I wouldn’t mind a Onesy with Texas.

  32. SteveM December 10, 2012 11:18 pm

    RE: #19

    ST — if it’s a good Christmas Eve party, you could invite the famous Tsai-ko Santa (and his elf chauffeur) as backup. He’s been practicing his “ho ho ho’s” on the telephone. The elf has a karaoke mic.

  33. PurpleMaple December 11, 2012 2:00 am

    What I find interesting about the current recruiting results – low emphasis on offensive linemen. Chow getting receivers and linebackers. Looks like Chow will open up his offense next seasson.

  34. hossana December 11, 2012 2:31 am

    Chow can get all the skilled personnel but what the team sorely lacks are people in the trenches. I hope he is just not going to rely on those starters that played this yr. on the offensive and defensive line as he needs bigger and more physical linemen to provide the blocking etc. for his skill people to do what they do best. Except for the Waianae defensive lineman recruited, I haven’t seen any commits for lineman which the coaching staff should be focusing on now and in the near future.

    Hello, I do believe your site might be having web browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic website!

  40. Pauoa Boy December 11, 2012 4:31 am


    AWC been had a pipeline to UH. A majority of our local boys who don’t cut it go to A-Dub. They have been a top team for a couple years although they’ve lost the championship each time. They produce a lot of talent that transfer to big name schools. Look at Jesse Williams at Alabama and Dwain Williams at Oklahoma.

  41. Slugger December 11, 2012 5:18 am

    Good morning, gang!

    Welcome to UH, Vasquez!

    Have a great day, gangeez!

    TO ALL OF THE ABOVE [why din’t a Grease think of this before? 😉 ] . . . thanks for waking up early!!!! [earlier than me, bwahahaahahahahaha!!!!!]

    For the melodramatic this holiday season . . .

    I miss you

    Most at Christmas time

    – Mariah Carey

    A Grease was at this one Christmas party as a guest couple years ago, man, I dunno why people do this at festive occassions — the MC announced the recently dead of those at the party. (guess he asked for names prior to the party.) People were crying. It’s a CHRISTMAS party for crickey’s sake!!!!!

    Telling ya . . . it’s the H logo, the dark green, black, and silver colors that’s helping to buttress these great recent recruits in. Eat your heart out recent major trophy loser.

    Continued success to the Coaches on the Recruiting Trails!

  47. papajoe2 December 11, 2012 6:29 am

    Did anybody else notice after a razzle dazzle first half against South Alabama, the second half play calling was boring except when they gave the ball to Wil Gregory?

  48. BayAreaWarrior December 11, 2012 6:47 am

    A transfer with three to play three is a nice pickup. Blinn has historically been a very good JC program. They had a really, really good QB a few years back. Some guy named Newton?

  49. mo808 December 11, 2012 7:03 am

  53. Abunai December 11, 2012 7:11 am

    Btw great to hear about VH, Dejon Allen and R Fields coming.

  54. helencalif December 11, 2012 7:47 am

    #22 Kapakahi … twice you have posted that “Coach” is actively making contacts in behalf of DG so he can transfer and play QB elsewhere

    his senior year.

    Where did you get this info? It’s not correct. Stop posting this erroneous information.

  55. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 11, 2012 7:49 am


    Yea, that was a bit frustrating to warch. I remember reading Fresno fan blogs about how Hill used to do so well running the ball in the first half then come out throwing in the 2nd and losing games. Lol. 2-3 TDs doesn’t seem like a big enough cushion to call off the dogs with the kind of numbers teams are putting up these days.

  56. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 11, 2012 7:52 am


    If Graves doesn’t get to play again, hopefully he will get his degree and succeed in the next chapter of life. Best of luck to him.

  58. helencalif December 11, 2012 8:12 am

    #56. iwonderwhytheyhateme… thank you for your post. Your support of David Graves is greatly appreciated. He is scheduled to graduate next May from UH. Months ago he declared his major and minor. He will be taking classes at UH this spring to fulfill his minor requirement. He wants to graduate from UH. He is a student-athlete (a 4.0 or near to a 4.0). If you know David, you know he is a success-oriented young man of strong character who doesn’t give up and quit. The next chapter of his life will be in Hawaii as he is staying.

  59. wasabi December 11, 2012 8:15 am

    Most of us were not raised on an island. For us to see the control the football department has over the media there is astonishing. The smear campaign against the players has been the most appalling. Norm Chow has not helped anyone. He simply decided that this year would be devoted to pushing out Mac’s recruits by any means necessary. A lot of talent never got in the game. Shame on Chow for taking a job that is clearly over his head and shame on the media for doing the bidding of the football department instead of good solid reporting. This stuff would never fly anywhere but a small dysfunctional island in the middle of nowhere…

  60. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 11, 2012 8:16 am

    Looking forward to see the O-Line commits. Hope the days of the 6’5″+ Chree hundred poundah guys are near. 🙂

  61. VonAppen December 11, 2012 8:24 am

    Wasabi, I was raised on the mainland and I’m astonished at your smear of coach Chow. How about some facts to back-up your here-say statements. Shaming is dysfunctional.

  62. helencalif December 11, 2012 8:33 am

    #59. In defense of a beat reporter, you have to consider the fact that as such that person serves as a mouthpiece for the football department. His job is to tell fans and the public what the football dept. wants them to know. He is not supposed to report controversy or negative happenings. He definitely can’t question what the head coach has done. He would lose access and, thus, have no beat reporter job. Being a beat reporter is not easy; you have to toe the line all of the time and KNOW where the line is.

    Bloggers such you and others have posted some of what has gone on this past year as far as the treatment of Mac’s recruits. While most of the posts appear on “that other blogging site”, a few have appeared here on the “good news blog”. The blog administrator certainly must have the ability to yank those posts, but has not, which tells me he can say, “They said it, I didn’t.”

  63. haka December 11, 2012 8:34 am

  64. gobows December 11, 2012 8:38 am

    #59 wasabi –

    your last sentence makes your statement full of crap.

    every year new coaches get hired and the same thing happens at every school.

    the new regime cleans house.

    assistant coaches are gone and the players are weeded out.

    it’s the new coaches prerogative to play who they want, regardless how idiotic it may be to not play certain players.

    who the hell is “us”?

    wasabi comes from an island.

    why you choose that name, you not japanese.

    99.99% of the people with japanese ancestry are from an island.

    everyone from japan is from an island. 127 million.

  65. haka December 11, 2012 8:43 am

    #59 wasabi

    your generalizations are lame, but then again, i reside on the island. so what’s your point if that’s your opinion? you should spend your time on a larger, more functional part of the world.

  66. 808WarriorFan December 11, 2012 8:44 am

    VERY INTERESTING…..Coach Chow seems to be going the “quick fix” route w/ JC players. The big question is where Aofaga Wiley of Kahuku will end up. You know everyone and their mother is recruiting him

  67. wowlaulau December 11, 2012 8:59 am

    ST, your response to #62…….

  68. helencalif December 11, 2012 9:04 am

    #61 Von Appen. If you think Wasabi’s post #59 is a “smear” on Coach “Chow, it’s darn mild compared what has been posted on “that other blog site”.

    If you don’t think the football dept. controls what you read here, you need to do some thinking about what a beat reporter’s function is and what purpose this blog serves. This blog is not about investigative reporting. The blog master is no investigative reporter. His job is to pass on information to the public that has been given to him by the football staff. One of the purposes of this blog is to keep interest in Hawaii football by providing this idea of getting inside information, plus it is a public forum.

    As a public forum, this blog serves as a place where fans can opine so you are going to read positive and negative opinions.

    You are going to read a lot of pie in the sky reports on incoming recruits — many of whom won’t pan out. Fans won’t know until recruits sign contracts as to who really is coming and who took a free trip to Hawaii because it was offered to them.

  69. wowlaulau December 11, 2012 9:21 am

    #68, sorry but you are talking through your ……..

    First you say this:

    “If you don’t think the football dept. controls what you read here, you need to do some thinking about what a beat reporter’s function is and what purpose this blog serves. This blog is not about investigative reporting. The blog master is no investigative reporter. His job is to pass on information to the public that has been given to him by the football staff. One of the purposes of this blog is to keep interest in Hawaii football by providing this idea of getting inside information, plus it is a public forum. ”

    Than you say this:

    “As a public forum, this blog serves as a place where fans can opine so you are going to read positive and negative opinions. ”

    So first you say the blog is controlled by the “football dept” but than you say “As a public forum, this blog serves as a place where fans can opine so you are going to read positive and negative opinions. ”

    If the blog is controlled by the “football dept”…why would they allow any negative opinions …..

  70. gobows December 11, 2012 9:30 am

    #68 free trips to hawaii, i’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often. i don’t know the numbers, but i bet UH gets a decent percentage of recruits to sign that trip from conus. i don’t think football ever gets the big ben treatment from recruits.

    big ben = benoit benjamin who took a recruiting trip to hawaii, and afterwards let it be known that he had no intention of signing with UH, he just went for the free trip. signed with creighton. nba 1st round, 3rd overall pick for the clippers in 85.

Thanks for telling me what Stephen’s job is and what I’m going to read on this blog. Are you his mother?

    About Blinn

    Established in 1883, Blinn College offers a variety of college academic transfer, workforce training, and continuing education classes for more than 18,000 students who attend one of our four campuses or our comprehensive distance education programs.

    The premier two-year college in Texas, Blinn college has one of the state’s highest percentages of students who transfer to leading four-year institutions and who go on to graduate from top universities.


    What’s the other football blog site? Who runs it – or is the person known to the public like Stephen?


    With respect to the incoming Director of Athletics Ben Jay, according to John McNamara, the new Director has the authority to release the three people who report directly to his office – but so far, nothing has been said or even hinted.


    Just a quick reminder: Be sure to read ILLEGAL PROCEDURE: A Sports Agent Comes Clean On The Dirty Business of College Football by Josh Luchs and James Dale.

    Perhaps we can persuade the Richardson School of Law to bring him in to address these issues about “professional” collegiate football. Since 2009, Luchs has spoken at more than 100 universities – including their law schools – and even before legislative committees.

    What I found very disturbing was how agents all across the country would identify top players as young as 12 or 13 and then establish a business relationship with their parents/guardians and their middle/high school coaches in exchange for eventually representing them when they get drafted.

    DrDoc checked out the book at the Main Library after hearing Luchs being interviewed on both NPR and ESPN.

  75. iwonderwhytheyhateme December 11, 2012 9:59 am


    Mahalo for the info about Ben Jay being able to bring on a new staff. It seem that some that would welcome a wholsale change.

    Also, the other “blog” is not really a blog. It’s the warrior sports network site via scout.com

  76. WarriorMojo December 11, 2012 10:08 am

    @all chow smearers who are mad because he let go of this or that coach and doesn’t play Macs recruits or peoples sons……

    It is his responsibility to play who he thinks will allow him to succeed as a coach and potentially keep his job, everybody has to stop crying…..if we played “Macs recruits” as you guys say how would the results differ? I would put money on not by much or maybe worse. Take that Opinion!

  79. Independent Thinker December 11, 2012 10:27 am


    Excellent explanation re the landmines a beat reporter must traverse in order to get out the real story without offending the powers that be such that he would lose access to the sources he needs to cover.

    This is why most do not fault Tsai for not calling a spade a spade.

    Overall, especially recently, Tsai has done a good job of reporting the program and being objective, which is to say, if the topic on the blog or on the table looks like it might offend his news sources, he stays out of it.

  80. gobows December 11, 2012 10:33 am

    #74 here’s one, might not be the one helen mentioned though:


  81. WarriorMojo December 11, 2012 10:34 am

    By the way if you don’t think spin control is everywhere, you are naive. Very few statements should be accepted on blind faith, particularly when the statement serves only to justify the speaker’s behavior by putting someone else in a bad light. This is PARTICULARLY true when the other person cannot defend himself.

    I don’t know what Chow knows. I’m not privy to the inner workings of things. Also, I’m not totally negative on this staff at all because I don’t have the facts to come to that decision for the most part. I generally don’t jump to conclusions based on assumptions. But when I think I do have all the pertinent info, like in the Will Gregory situation, I will state my piece. I still think — and will always think — that Chow mishandled that situation, but that’s nothing compared to the DG situation.

    There HAD to be a better solution than denying DG the right even to suit up for games. Remember, DG was elected captain by the team. Same thing for GDL. How does that guy go from game #1 starter to not being allowed to dress for games? Maybe, DG and GDL don’t start and don’t even play much, but how do they become so disfavored that they can’t even dress for games?

    And yet our backup kicker (nothing at all against our backup kicker by the way) goes on all the road trips and is even allowed to kick off in the UNLV game as a reward for his hard work. How come DG and GDL don’t deserve the same consideration?

    And now the little birdies are tweeting that DG has difficulties learning the system, even as a receiver, and that’s why he didn’t see time at WR. A QB HAS to know the routes his receivers are running. Do you honestly believe that DG had difficulties in learning to run a post pattern? Seriously?

  85. Independent Thinker December 11, 2012 10:45 am

    For most of us, I don’t seriously think we care who the HC is. We do, however, care a lot of about not getting blown out, about preventing blow outs, and about making sure we don’t have coaches who stand by and do nothing to stop the blow out. Then, we care about winning. No one follows the team wanting to see them lose.

    The basic agreement among fans an this issue is this, we are saying – coach, if we are getting blown out, please, make some changes, experiment with other players, right now, during this game, to see if we can prevent the other guys from blowing us out, MOFO!

    A coach who doesn’t do this during that game – make adjustments – does not inspire confidence in the fans and in the community about his ability to win games, which, despite what others have been saying about winning, is the reason the majority tune in to the game.

    Blogs (dreams) feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange. 😆

    What’s the most resilient parasite? An idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules. Which is why some people have to blog about it.

  89. Kevin December 11, 2012 10:54 am


    The parallels are amazing.

    You have people so enamored with blogging and spending time on forums, you wonder if they end up thinking their reality isn’t real? Just like the movie Inception where Cobb’s wife thinks the living world is a dream and kills herself back to the ideal world she preferred.

    To these *ahem* “people”, deeper and deeper into the levels they go… NO “kick” will be strong enough to get them out of it.

    So here they come… to level 3…

    #69. Not talking through my hat. Journalism was my education and then my career before I retired (writer, columnist, editor, then magazine publisher). Others in the immediate family .. a newspaper beat reporter, then copy editor, then section editor (retired after 42 years with the same newspaper). Another family member was sports reporter, sports columnist, then Sports Editor for a major university. Our family also has acquaintances who were newspaper investigative reporters (now retired). They did not report everything they knew.

    We are now old duffers so it is journalism of yesteryear, but I don’t think things have changed much as to the differences between being a beat reporter, an investigative reporter, or a feature columnist. The only change is the internet with its blogs where dialog can take place almost instantly.

    Go read my post again. I gave you two examples of my opinions. The first referred to this blog as a function of the Star Advertiser whose beat reporter is the blog master. His job is to pass on “inside” information provided to him via his daily introductory piece and then his occasional posts. Where do you think he gets his “inside” information? He’s getting it from staff and observation. His job is not to report negatives about the head coach or any staff member. He may have observed negatives, he may have heard negatives, but he isn’t going to report them. He isn’t going to lead the parade nor jump on that bandwagon.

    The second function is that of a public forum for UH football (and some other UH sports) where anyone and everyone can jump in and post whatever they want to post. News as well as views.

    #81 during the south alabama game i told my niece and my sister that its pathetic when a team like south alabama travel to hawaii (without cheerleaders) and they have more players in uniform than hawaii. 105+ members on the team and less than 59 (i counted) suited up. for a home game.

    #82 hurricane fred = painful memories? i moved to guam in oct 97 so i missed the worst part of UH football history. moved back home in oct 99 and got to witness the greatest turnaround in college football history.

  95. Wes'side Warrior December 11, 2012 11:36 am

    Howzit Gang!

    Always so much conjecture here, especially this season. Seems many run into Coach Chow and other staff on an almost daily basis, and yet no one wants to ask why we suit only “x” amount of players for each home game, among many other recurring questions. So, without adding further supposition to the discussion, I’ll just leave it at that.

    Welcome to the Land of Warriors, Vasquez Haynes!

  96. BigWave96744 December 11, 2012 11:37 am

    @#74, Capitol/Doc – I presume the 3 persons reporting to the AD would Be C. Clapp, J. McNamara, and M. Moniz-Kahoohanohano. I don’t know if any of our past ADs have ever “cleaned house”.

  102. duffer December 11, 2012 12:17 pm

    The new AD should replace the PR dept. for not having a press conference to announce his hiring. 🙂

  103. Bowwar December 11, 2012 12:21 pm

    The UH Athletic department’s PR and Marketing needs replacement and revamping…If they were doing a better job, you’d get better attendance and support. I actually liked it when they used JJ’s friend’s Marketing company a while back…If anything they gave the department a different spin and new ideas. Also, we need a new mascot since Vili has left the premises…

  104. d1shima December 11, 2012 12:30 pm

    Heard Gib say that he hired a guy whose responsibilities include “theming” each home game: Beach Night, Geek Night, etc.

    Is that making a difference to fan interest or is it better team play?

  105. Bowwar December 11, 2012 12:37 pm

    D1shima: You’re probably referring to the “video guy” that the BB team has…From what I’ve heard, the theming has helped in getting “students” involved and attending the games. Funny, but shouldn’t the UH marketing department be doing this? I think the Football team could help themselves with a dose of theming to get the students more involved. I think Gibb has done a good job in getting the BB team to be recognized as part of the student population versus just “jocks”.

  106. 3-Prong December 11, 2012 12:37 pm

    d1: I don’t know but the play of the “6th Man” is improving…hehe

  107. Buffoman December 11, 2012 12:48 pm

    Maybe as a part of the BB home show have a student challenge a BB player to free throws. Keep a tally for the season. Student winners get prizes. Maybe shaming the players into doing a better job at the free throw line will get them to practice and concentrate more in the real games. That should get students to show up.

  108. Shoko December 11, 2012 1:10 pm

    From the ESPN website with an interesting headline.

    #101. duffer.

    Well, there are duffers and there are old duffers. I wasn’t referencing golf. I am an old duffer, er Old Dame.

    I remember when Bill Walsh got this young man out of western Pennsylvania to come to San Francisco to play football. Had a cowboy-like name of Joe Montana and the most gorgeous blue eyes. He didn’t live in S.F.; he lived not far from us in Redwood City close to the 49er practice field and headquarters. That was when he was starting out; after succe$$, he moved to Atherton about 2 miles from our house. We lived on the RC-Atherton border, not far from Stanford.

    Back in the day, Bill Walsh was tinkering with and perfecting something called the West Coast Offense. Got to watch it evolve for over 20 years as a 49er season ticket holder.

    For years the Niners practiced a mile from our house in Redwood City. Players and their wives shopped at neighborhood stores. A defensive Niner coach lived across the street from us until he moved to the Browns.

    Our two boys started playing football when they were 8 years old for the Menlo-Atherton Lions. Had a head coach named Y.A. Tittle who had an assistant coach named Eddie Dove (from Stanford). There was another record setting ex-Stanford player who was another coach, but I can’t remember his name. Both boys played football all through high school; one played college ball, first as a walk-on, then as a starter on scholarship. The other did not play college football; he wrote about it — sports writer and then sports editor. You could say we are a football oriented family.

    Where have the years gone? This Old Dame has been watching football from the stands for over 40 years. Now I watch it on TV.

    The student section has been more consistent this season as in previous years.

    Wahine volleyball… always a good draw, also had more consistent draws in the student section.

    Not saying they are always “full” to capacity, but the average number of students in that section have been greater.

  117. duffer December 11, 2012 1:37 pm

    I saw Y A Tittle play in Kezar before he got traded to NY. Must make me an old duffer…or just old.

  118. Bigislandkurt December 11, 2012 1:37 pm

    I’m confused.

    Was Dejon Allan a non-qualifier out of high school? If so, how could he be a greyshirt? I think I read a few places that he was a greyshirt recruit. And if he was in fact a non-qualifier, wouldn’t he either 1) need to go JUCO and complete an AA before transferring or 2) attend a school that does not offer football and attain 24 transferable credits?

    What’s the dealy?


  119. haka December 11, 2012 1:39 pm

    Give me a call (256-0223). I’ll give the real back story. It’s quite different from the perception.

  122. Stephen Tsai December 11, 2012 1:57 pm

    Big Island Kurt:

    Dejon Allen was signed as a regular recruit. He did not meet all of the qualifications. So he became a grayshirt, meaning the Warriors will hold the scholarship until January. UH can actually hold the scholarship through next year, if he still doesn’t qualify. If he qualifies for the 2013 spring semester, he can count as a 2012 initial. If it takes longer, and he doesn’t enroll until the fall, then he can only count as a 2013 initial.

  123. Stephen Tsai December 11, 2012 1:57 pm

    I spoke with Dejon Allen last night, so I’m fairly certain I’m up to date.

    Brother, I love your posts, love your perspectives…..

    However, I do not understand why you and some others are so hung up on David Graves and / or George Daily-Lyles.

    Please enlighten me.

    Last time I checked there is no rule that says everybody in the program must play, must get into the game.

    If the coaches don’t grade them out as warranting playing time, shouldn’t it be “so be it”…?

  126. PolyMom December 11, 2012 2:09 pm


    Sometimes they are Grey Shirts when their SAT score is not high enough. So they gotta grey shirt until they can get the SAT score for UH. I know, been there, done that! And the score had to be 1280 and for public school kids that’s hard. So you just keep studying and taking the SATs until you get the score. And 1280 is not that high. My 12 year old was studying with the beast…and she took the test with him, and she scored 1460. And we were thrilled he got the 1285 to play for UH.

    Hub just reminded me sometimes they don’t have enough HS credits. So a Grey Shirt might have to take an extra history or math class.

    Happy Hanukkah everyone.

    #54. helencalif,

    Didn’t intend to slight David in any way. While David doesn’t know me on this blog, David knows me in person….and knows that I’ve always been a supporter of his.

    I wish that this information was erroneous and incorrect, but unfortunately it’s not inaccurate.

    Got this first-hand from a personal contact with an FCS school…..who confirmed that Coach Chow initiated contact with this FCS program’s HC just last week….specifically to discuss David’s situation for next season.

    Unfortunately, sounds as though David may not have been given the courtesy of being made aware of this by Coach Chow.

  128. Kevin December 11, 2012 2:15 pm

    I once dreamt that I was coming home to find that there was a massive party at my house and Morris Day and the Time were performing in my garage. When I pulled up, the music stopped and the lead singer proclaimed to everyone as he pointed to me that I was the one that shot Tupac.

  133. Kaimiloa December 11, 2012 2:36 pm

    All of this stuff about vendettas against Mack’s recruits is a bunch of crap. Chow didn’t walk into the job with hate towards Mack or any of the players at that time. Chow wants to make big changes and that is never easy for anyone. He wants players that fit his system (physically, mentally) and who accept his philosophy. Its quite posible that players with better natural talents than others sat on the bench this year. Its also posible that Chow has lost his eye for talent. But I’m certain that he played the guys who he felt fit his system and philosophy whether they were his recruits or not. It is ridiculous to think that he consciously excluded players solely because they weren’t “his”. That would be counter to his objectives.

    Maybe he rubs some guys the wrong way and they let it show. That might have ended up costing them playing time. Either they adjust, accept scout team duty, or move on. I’ve gone through the same thing. New coach came in and I didn’t like how he did things. I was young and knew everything and who was this guy telling me that everything I had learned from former coaches was wrong.

    If you want to hear “how things should be”. Ask a college student. Life doesn’t always turn out the way you wanted it to. Yes, it sucks for guys who busted their butts for 3 years and were looking forward to playing on Saturday night. If that were my son, I’d be pissed and hurt for him but would tell him that this was one of life’s roadblocks that he needs to find a way of getting through. Maybe 2% of players will go on to the professional level. So, this isn’t ruining anyone’s livelihood. If anything, it is a safe time to get knocked down and learn a life lesson. At least they are getting a free education plus room and board. I’m sure many players ARE making the best of this situation and have become stronger and more capable people. DG sounds like an example of a player who is resilient and will use this experience to his advantage in the future.

    I think the angry, hateful, and sometimes slanderous talk has more to do with emotion than logic.

    I think the angry, hateful, and sometimes slanderous talk has more to do with emotion than logic.

    There is ego involved too. The kind of ego that stems from some people that throw their hands up in the air when the chips are down about how they didn’t want a coaching change and how they felt things were A-OK and felt things were headed in the right direction.

    Its always about ego. Discussing why the season went 3-9 is one thing and stating your ideas as to why we were struggling are fine, but when some people plug in the phrase “I for one, didn’t want a coaching change”… well.. there is a reason people say the things they say with different motives other than to offer their opinion.

    All UH Student Athletes who are graduating this Saturday have been invited to the Letterwinners Clubhouse (with their families) to have some juice/coffee and some homemade corn bread prior to putting on the robes and taking pictures with the families.

    Each student athlete is given a white stole with an embroidered H on each end to wear for graduation (courtesy of the Letterwinners Club).

    Tsaikos, if you want to stop by and take your own pictures the time for this is 8:15 outside of the Letterwinners Building (lower campus).

  139. Old School Dave December 11, 2012 3:18 pm

    Back in 98 there was a freshman starting at center for UH. Local kid from Mid-Pac, good size, lots of potential. New coaching staff comes in, and this player never sees much playing time. Eventually he transferred to Southern Missouri State (I believe) along with another UH lineman. There was also a kid from Radford HS who played a lot in 98, but got cut in 99. I think his dad went to the media to complain about how he was treated by June Jones’ and his staff.

    Point is that when you’re winning, people overlook a lot of “things” going on. When you’re coming off a losing season, everything is under a microscope.

  140. helencalif December 11, 2012 3:22 pm

    #117 duffer.

    If you saw Y.A. Tittle play at Kezar, you are an OLD Duffer.

    I don’t know if Y.A. is still with us or not. He was an insurance agent in the Menlo Park-Atherton area back in the 1970s when he was a Pop Warner coach.

    We were in Oakdale, CA, last month and drove past a Y.A. Tittle Insurance Agency on one of their main streets. We couldn’t believe it, we had to drive by it twice to make sure that is what the sign on the building and windows said. It got us to reminiscing about Y.A. when he was coaching Pop Warner in the ’70s — yowza, that was a long time ago.

  141. WarriorMojo December 11, 2012 3:22 pm

    Re #125

    Hey Bleed, thanks for the compliments. I agree 100% with your post. Generally speaking, I wouldn’t second guess any coach about who should or should not be playing. During the season, my only comments in that area were that Chow should have lifted SS in some of those blow out games — for SS’s sake as well as the team’s sake.

    My point today is that I believe DG and GDL are quality people. I don’t know them personally, but they both come across very well. If they ARE good kids, I just wouldn’t want to see them tossed away like old trash. Seems like such a waste of human potential.

    Even if they weren’t going to play this season and will be off scholarship next season, I don’t see the harm in letting them suit up. Now maybe they were given that option and chose not to accept it. I dunno. Gonna call ST now since he’s indicating that I am off. Wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been wrong.

  142. kapakahi December 11, 2012 3:24 pm

    WarriorMojo — I have no opinion, but would not assume you are “off”. I suspect ST is just extending you special consideration with the scoops because he’s known you for 30 years, you took the same classes at UH, probably attended his wedding, and are one of the better Tsai-ko karaoke singers who we’ve all met many times. Lucky guy… 😐

  146. haka December 11, 2012 3:55 pm


    but at the expense of a young man’s unknowing situation? is this where and how you would like to know the truth about who’s screwing your wife? anyway, not my cup of tea, but if it’s what stirs your drink then so be it.

  147. kapakahi December 11, 2012 3:58 pm


    Since I consider myself among the “others”….

    Really it’s not about any particular current player….neither DG or GDL…nor about anger, hate, and/or ego.

    BUT rather it’s ultimately about mutual trust and respect….between the players and the coaching staff.

    It’s also about how players perceive their teammates are being treated…..either equally and fairly….or unequally and unfairly.

    SO….NO problem IF this treatment is perceived as being equal and fair.

    HOWEVER….IF this treatment is perceived as being unequal and unfair, then some players may empathize with their teammate(s)….especially for one who is a close friend….which can sometimes translate to how some players perceive a particular coach or coaches…..and influence whether they feel that they can respect and/or trust this particular coach…..in order to follow the leadership and “buy-in” to the program and instructions given…..and to motivate them….to perform to their potential on the field.

    From this past season, perceptions by players inevitably differed…..unfortunately divided somewhat along the lines of whether the player was identified as a “Mack” player as opposed to being a “Chow” player…..which obviously lead to some divisions within the team locker room….and not the greatest team dynamic and chemistry…..translating to inconsistent results and less than steady improvements on the field.

    What happened last season is done….BUT the point here is that….the mutual trust and respect both on and off the field between some players and some coaches must improve in order to translate to steady improvements on the field for the Warriors in coming seasons.

    You’re correct. Definite faux pas on my part.

    I mistakenly assumed that the Coach had extended the courtesy of informing the player beforehand…..since the FCS program’s HC was given all of DG’s information.

    Since I can’t put the genie back in the bottle…..I can only confirm the truth.

  150. hightide December 11, 2012 4:12 pm

    Wow lots of anger on this blog today. Some people support the new coach, some don’t. I go by what happened in games. On all the high revenue games the game was lost by the end of the first quarter. And that was the fault of who not to mention injuries some that will affect the players for the rest of their lives.

    The old adage of you play like the way you practice showed.

  151. kapakahi December 11, 2012 4:14 pm

    #141 & #144. WarriorMojo,

    There are backstories in both cases, but JMHO that you’re not “off”….which really doesn’t matter.

    What really matters is…..how the players perceive things.

    Mahalo for your responses on Dejon. Yet I’m still a little confused. If he did not meet all of the qualifications, wouldn’t he be a “non-qualifier”? I’ve also heard of the term partial qualifier, but don’t know exactly what that entails. Maybe being a partial qualifier allows for Dejon to bring up his SAT scores without having to go JUCO route.

    SteveM, thanks for the kind words. To borrow a phrase, once a Tsaiko, always a Tsaiko.

    Points of view may differ, but the open and respectful discussion of those differing points is always interesting and worthwhile.

    diogenes…came across a great burger at the “shakes n buns” eatery. just like you like um. fat, juicy, top grade beef, fresh baked bun, all the trimmings. kind of pricey two of those house specialties, hot ranch spiced chicken dip with brie fresh tortilla chips to go along with a couple of fat tires and wine.

    kind of pricey at just under 100 bucks. less the beverages, no more expensive than a teddy’s. that was the late evening meal.

  155. al December 11, 2012 4:30 pm

    and next time when in las vegas make sure you stop by the wicked spoon. a full on buffet that one could spend a week just to taste all the goodness. again a bit pricey at 40 pp. but, well worth it.

    By the way I was NOT invited to ST’s wedding even though I was there in the class where the first furtive glances and high pitched giggles were exchanged. In other words the class where ST and Wena wen’ first hook up.

    Donna Summer, Randy Newman and Heart into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before Deep Purple? NOW I’m really freaking ticked off.

    May not visit the Rock Hall of Fame in Cleveland before/after the Ohio State game after all.

    #152 i think pisa was a partial qualifier, but he had to sit out 1 year. maybe the rules changed since then.

    Re #166

    Every time I see that video I wanna cry. What’s there is great, but they edited out Blackmore’s guitar solo to shorten time for the tv broadcast. The deleted material was just deleted, gone forever. It’s only one of the iconic rock songs of all time. So little footage exists of that era.

    Here’s a link to my all-time fave Purple song, audio only. Every speeding ticket I ever got was because of this song.

    Nope, no way. That’s a pre-recorded backing track first of all and Blackmore pretty much never used a wah wah pedal as the whammy bar was his favorite effects toy by far.

    Fortunate opportunity for Brashton…..but timing seems kinda too coincidental…..so might possibly be a consequence from the recent unfortunate accidental death of Cowboy practice squad LB Jerry Brown (RIP).

    Take it easy Kevin, did you watch the video? If you did then you would have seen that the young man has similar moves and runs his routes like Rivers did. He also showed no fear in going over the middle as did Rivers. Also his outside catches were very good he looks like he has good hands as did Rivers. They are both similar yet different.
