Wait ’til next year

Championship curses?

Hardly.

The fact is, the more teams there are in a sport, the longer the cycle and the smaller the opportunity for a championship. For instance, there are 32 teams in the NFL. If each took a turn winning a Super Bowl, one team would have had a 31-year drought. With multiple winners, the wait is longer. Of the 49 Super Bowls, 18 teams have won championships. The past 30 years, 10 of the 30 NBA teams and 20 of the 30 MLB teams have won championships. Of the 27 Summer Olympics, seven countries have been overall medal winners, with the United States or the Soviet Union winning the past 16.


The point is, the odds have always favored the told-ya-so types who feel they can coach or play better than the people who actually coach or play. And so it goes as UH’s home sports season ends for the 2011-12 academic year. For the rest, celebrate the accomplishments and hope for a better future.

    Proud of all the UH fans that came out to support UH Softball. Even moa proud of the Tsaikos that stepped up and went above n beyond to help the program build a foundation to grow and capitalize on their success.

    Let’s do this again!!


  2. al May 20, 2012 8:25 am

    first


  3. al May 20, 2012 8:25 am

    oh well


  4. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 8:26 am

    You see, Al, with all of the posters, the chances of being No. 1 …


  5. al May 20, 2012 8:27 am

    how true st and ajoe!


  6. A-joe May 20, 2012 8:29 am

    Lets go get some championships of our own!! Get plenny to chase after!!!


  7. Garret May 20, 2012 8:29 am

    A-Joe had the perfect first post for ST’s blog subject today. Mahalo to the team for their hard work and best wishes to the seniors whose career at UH has ended.


  8. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 8:32 am

    Self-disclosure: I am one of those told-ya-so types who screams at the television when the Jets call knuckled-headed plays.


  9. Garret May 20, 2012 8:33 am

    Finally caught up with the blog from the past week–hi Gigi! My job does’t allow me to go to the blog all day on weekdays and family stuff normally prevents my reading/posting until I catch up with the blog on weekends.

    I’m glad to see WassupDoc posted yesterday about the $12.5 mil for facilities from the Legislature and the Aloha Stadium bill that she has been working on forever that may finally go through. Positive things are happening behind the scenes that will hopefully not be torpedoed by a big funding cut that UH overall might have in the future that would affect academics and athletics.


  10. A-joe May 20, 2012 8:33 am

    I was just about to post in the previous blog but, then had a hunch ST would be posting a new one.

    Did a refresh.

    TADAAAH!! Wataya know…

    Hmmmm… maybe in there lays the secret path to a championship…


  11. Garret May 20, 2012 8:40 am

    Congratulations and best wishes to Tim Chang as he starts his coaching career at SMU. I think that it is great that JJ is giving opportunities for Warriors to get into coaching.

    If I’m not mistaken, Tim Chang is taking the GA spot that Abraham Elimimian (I loved watching him play for UH and his brother Sol was an awesome Warrior also) vacated when he became CB coach at Washington State. Adrian Klemm went from sitting around in Hawaii without a job after he graduated from UH to coaching at SMU to getting a raise when UCLA came for him.


  12. lurker Ron May 20, 2012 8:43 am

    Thanks for putting in words the thoughts I have about the Told-you-so types. They have never played the game and have no idea how hard it is to win one game let alone 50. These girls gave us thrills all year and should be applauded for their effort and dedication to their teammates and the school. Thanks ladies!


  13. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 8:44 am

    Garret:

    You’re correct about him filling Elimimian’s spot. But i think the NCAA has a new rule where the number of GAs increased, from two to four. By doing that, there might have been cuts in students assistants or managers. I was speaking with JJ at 3 a.m. Hawaii time, so the details of the rule are sort of fuzzy.


  14. madeinhawaii May 20, 2012 8:48 am

    Another day.. a season ends and marks the start of a new beginning. Wahine made us proud. Played their hearts out!… All our Warriors do.


  15. kev-1 May 20, 2012 8:49 am

    Still get chance for the basebows if they win the WAC tourney, right?


  16. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 8:54 am

    Kev-1

    Yep. But there won’t be another UH sporting event at home until volleyball.


  17. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 9:04 am

    Hey, Garret! Wondered what happened to you. Great to see you again.


  18. madeinhawaii May 20, 2012 9:06 am

    Aloha Gigi… good to see you on the blog.


  19. WarriorNY May 20, 2012 9:07 am

    Congrats to all our athletes for great successful seasons. Championships are great but the they are few and far between.

    Also, I may be a little bit behind on this but I am encouraged by the hire of Tom Apple at the university both academically and athletically. He implied in comments the other day that joining the PAC-12 would be something he was interested in pursuing. As a UH fan that has dreamed of that opportunity, my question is could that be feasible in the next 5-10 years? I used to think it was impossible but now that I think about it, it still doesn’t seem probable but not quite as impossible as it once did. We pay travel subsidies already (on top of the monies schools collect from the Hawaii exemption game) we already play PAC-12 schools like Colorado, USC, Oregon State and others pretty regularly. All of the PAC-12 coaches raid the islands for talent. We have an attractive TV time slot. Why wouldn’t we be at least mentioned as a possibility? I’d think UH would have more to offer than Colorado did last year. I feel like we do have a pretty strong national profile and following for a non-BCS program. I really want to compare tv ratings of UH/USC in 2010 vs Colorado/USC in 2011.


  20. Randy F May 20, 2012 9:08 am

    No matter what spin you put on the end of the Wahine softball season, it is still a big disappointment. To lose against North Dakota State and having the two star pitchers get into a big time slump at the worse possible time, the 2012 will be remembered for their four game losing streak.


  21. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 9:11 am

    Thanks, MIH. Nice to see you again. Give my regards to your wife.


  22. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 9:12 am

    UH needs a Hibbard-type.


  23. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 9:14 am

    The Pacers are like a college team. and I mean that in a good way. Love the enthusiasm


  24. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 9:17 am

    I love the NBA’s zone because it’s an active defense. I’d like to see that in college basketball. Instead of college teams sitting back in a 2-3, it’s cool to see NBA teams use zone concepts while minimizing the amount of time a defender can stay in the lane.


  25. SAWARRIOR May 20, 2012 9:20 am

    #19 what part of NY are u in?


  26. tommui May 20, 2012 9:24 am

    GOOD MORNING HAWAII!

    No question that the last four softball games were disappointing and I am sure that the team members were even more crushed than the supporters/fans.

    Yet when you look at it in it totality, the Wahine did well and I am proud of what they have done.

    Pomai/Kevin – is the AD going to do something for the WAC championship or do we dig deep into the pockets again?


  27. el burro sabio May 20, 2012 9:27 am

    ST,

    There can be such a big difference in talent between college teams that you need to give less-talented teams a chance to stay in the game. The shot clock already put a dent in Podunk State’s strategy vs. Duke.


  28. bleedgreen May 20, 2012 9:37 am

    Hard for me to imagine the PAC 12 would be interested in Hawaii after they selected Colorado and Utah to join. A school like San Diego St. would have made more sense then those two schools. Out of frustration, I suppose, SDS joins the Big East. Hawaii? Lucky to be in the MWC.


  29. WarriorNY May 20, 2012 9:47 am

    @25,

    I’m in the Bronx.


  30. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 10:12 am

    I think they’re regretting the Colorado invite.


  31. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 10:13 am

    It’s great that we don’t have trolls here anymore. Less contentious blog.


  32. SteveM May 20, 2012 10:25 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Yup, a beautiful day outside and the start of summer break for Hawaii schools.


  33. Old School Dave May 20, 2012 10:33 am

    Re: #258-bleedgreen: SDSU is kinda of a headscratcher as to why they aren’t more dominant in football with so much talent to choose from in that part of California (HS & JUCO) – the Pac-12 has historically recruited the San Diego area and is one of the reasons why they’ve never been interested in SDSU becoming a member. Also, I’ve read that the UC schools in the Pac-10/12 would never admit a Cal-State school.


  34. jm2375 May 20, 2012 10:34 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    I hate this time of year. No UH athletics.

    Now to open the wallet and make good on my pledge. What’s the final tally for the Dollars for Dingers/Kokua for Ks?

    Happy Birthday Tsai Jr!

    SteveM – the kids get out this week. The public school seniors got out last week.


  35. Pomai May 20, 2012 10:36 am

    #26 – tommui – At this time we are not sure what the AD is going to do, but like before the girls will get the award that they deserve one way or another.


  36. Pomai May 20, 2012 10:39 am

    #34- jm2375 – as of today –

    Homeruns – 76

    Strikeouts – 349


  37. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 10:47 am

    SDSU is a warm-weather school with a strong military population.

    But the school system has financial stress, the stadium is off campus, and it’s a commuter school.

    Hmm. Sound familiar?


  38. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 10:48 am

    ST: I avoid unpleasant people, whose rudeness goes beyond free speech. Sure, I could just skip past the negative comments, but as a wordsmith, that’s not always possible. Words can trigger fights, whether in a bar or on a blog.


  39. UH NA WAHINE SOFTBALL BOOSTER CLUB May 20, 2012 10:50 am

    RE: Dollars for Dingers / Kokua for K’s

    Those that have pledged will be receiving a letter in the week. No two pledges are exactly the same, so each letter to each person that pledged will be specific to your pledge selection.

    Mahalo for all the support!!!


  40. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 10:51 am

    Is this a public forum or a private one? Does it matter? I think ST is free to cut anyone he feels like cutting. After all, would the WB be the same without him? What would it be like if the WB were run by Dave Reardon or Ferd Lewis? It wouldn’t be the same, would it?


  41. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 10:54 am

    Gigi:

    They have other options.

    They can start their own blog.

    They can start a Twitter account.


  42. Stephen Tsai May 20, 2012 10:59 am

    I know that Tom Mui owns the rights to the group name.

    Not the men’s team, too?


  45. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 11:11 am

    I’ll make another donation to the UH Foundation with the stipulation that it go to the athletic dept (no other strings attached). I really like Jim Donovan and hope he continues as the AD. Isn’t his contract up for renewal?


  46. SteveM May 20, 2012 11:14 am

    The Warrior Beat blog is a long-running and mature one for it’s size and worldwide reach. Over 3,000 different commenters over the years (actually over 3,100 but we had sock puppets). ๐Ÿ™

    This blog was forged by the tolerance and great sense of humor of the blog host as he filled a great void in UH football news and human interest stories. It has been a long road–coming up on 6 years now and we have had our major ups and downs.

    The Warrior Beat blog is usually self-regulating. This is because most who comment here are of good will, and respect the feelings of others. There are notable exceptions, and liberal use of the blog delete key is much appreciated.


  47. bleedgreen May 20, 2012 11:53 am

    ST, I did not know that about SDS. Then it makes sense. But Colorado? What’s with their selection? Utah, Okay. They have been in the Top-10 for a few years. They earned their place. Hawaii has not helped itself with USC just drubbing the Warriors the past few meetings. This coming season’s opening game looms large to the Hawaii program. Can Norm Chow make it a game? JJ could not. “The Trojans have had tremendous success in the islands. They opened the season here in 1999 and 2005, winning by a combined score of 125-24. In the last matchup, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush led USC to a 63-17 victory.”


  48. WarriorNY May 20, 2012 12:12 pm

    @47,

    I wouldn’t call the 2010 game a drubbing. I think a couple of questionable calls in the end zone kept us from keeping that game closer than it was. I still think we gained 600 yards or something in that game…

    That being said, Coach Chow knows how to control the game clock and thus will limit USC’s total number of possessions. Granted, it’ll keep our possessions down as well but if USC’s points per possession is much higher than UH, less possessions for both teams would be much better for UH.


  49. Slugger May 20, 2012 12:17 pm

    Wish I could have attended more games in all sports, but I’m no longer fun-employed. I love watching our UH student-athletes play. I couldn’t do what they do, so kudos to them.

    My SB bucket has the kala waiting for the final notification. Got it! Good luck to the team next year!


  50. Slugger May 20, 2012 12:17 pm

    Five-0!


  51. WarriorNY May 20, 2012 12:26 pm

    Oh I got a random q for you guys… Which offense do you guys think was better? 2007 Sugar Bowl team or 2010 team…. I’m gonna go out there and say I think the 2010 offense was better… In 2007 we just had the better QB… (2006 team trumps both in my opinion, though)


  52. 99club May 20, 2012 12:26 pm

    My, how time flies. Just 104 days ’til kickoff!


  53. Old School Dave May 20, 2012 12:38 pm

    UH used to recruit a number of players from the San Diego area. Especially, the Ocaeanside, CA area – David Toloumu, Junior Faavae, Al Aliipule, among others. Lots of talent in that area. UH’s new DC, Thom Kaumeyer is also a San Diego native.


  54. mctruck May 20, 2012 12:48 pm

    I mentioned this on Ferd’s column thing there’d be some feed back??? nada!

    Is this just wild dreaming?, seeing how college fb is constantly evolving.

    How’s about Mr. Apple throwing this idea of UH football only in the PAC12; a sort of provisional.(3yr.)trial period…seeing how UH is going to be in a similar situation in the MWC?

    This idea takes the situation a little furture and gives the PAC12 more wiggle room. At the end of this provisional period the presidents of the PAC12 can decide if they want to offer UH a permanent FB-only membership based on how the $$ shakes down along with other considerations, such as fan appeal, etc.

    Just a thought.

  56. WarriorNY May 20, 2012 1:49 pm

    Mctruck,

    That’s a great idea to all of us UH fans. Hopefully Mr. Apple has that kind of creativity to get some sort of shot. Those guys in the PAC-12 would need the assurance it would make them even more money (even if it was only a 3 year provisional membership).

  58. Wes'side Warrior May 20, 2012 1:55 pm

    Howzit, everyone!

    Another busy day winding down. Three more school days for our keiki… then vacation time!

    As far as the Colorado to PAC-24 selection… as I recall, it was part of the PAC-48’s scheme to try to draw the big hitters of the Big12 to join up. But Texas had a change of heart after learning that they couldn’t maintain their private channel stuff… or something like that. Once Texas and friends decided to try to patch up their leaking boat, the PAC-64 was left holding hands with Colorado, playing “red rover, red rover…”


  59. BigHiloFan2 May 20, 2012 2:15 pm

    you guys must be too young to not know da answers to deze two.

    Q. would PAC 12 admit Hawaii?

    A. No.

    Q. what would it take for PAC 12 to admit Hawaii.

    A. if we beat da piles outta da Trojans, Ducks, Beavers, Bruins, Huskies next 5 out of 5.

    Aloha Gigi! ~

    Re: Disney Madness

    Just ran across your post about wanting to stay at the Aulani. I have associate membership at Au’lani, and so we were excited to try their facilities. My advice, Save your money!

    It’s a disappointment because of the cost of everything. The hotel room at $300 is the starting price. I have access to the various room configurations for the condo’s, so you can imagine what that costs. Forget the rooms!…wait until you grab a bite to eat! They’ll suck the money right out of hubby’s wallet! Hehehe…

    The buffet is supposedly the best deal there at a mere $48.95 a head. So when you shell out one hundred smackers, expectations are high that you will be provided a real feast…uh, no. Not gonna happen. Don’t look for any bargains at the other eateries on the property either.

    Fresh seafood?..no. We local people know fresh. Scrawny shrimp in cocktail sauce looked really tired! Some really terrific choices on the serving line perhaps?…nope! Salad bar?…heavens no! Ok what about the carving stations?…I’ll give it an Amen.

    All in all, the service was lukewarm despite the hype, and I wouldn’t even give it *one* star overall as the destination resort it’s supposed to be.

    If you want to just swing by for a walk-thru and price check, I would suggest you do that first. Your grandson would have fun at the buffet breakfast because they populate the dining area with all of the Disney cartoon characters in costume. Just be ready to pay that same price for breakfast.

    Even tho you are a hotel guest, if your grandson has a little friend who you might want to invite along to share some pool time…that would be a NO-NO. His family would have to be registered guests as well.

    No Aloha!…Walt Disney himself would fire the eggheads who operate this place.


  67. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 4:50 pm

    Hi Kekoa!

    Auwe! Sorry you had such a lousy experience at the Aulani.

    We were looking forward to snorkeling in their private lagoon, sitting in the whirl pool, having a facial and massage, and dining fancy.


  68. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 4:51 pm

    On another note, the Spurs should put the Clippers out of their misery already. No team has ever won with a 3-1 deficit.


  69. Jason May 20, 2012 5:02 pm

    gigi-hawaii: That would be a 3-0 deficit, not 3-1. And that’s specific to the NBA; there have been a few NHL teams that have come back from 3-0 deficits in a best of 7 series, and the 2004 Boston Red Sox are the only MLB team to have done so (against the New York Yankees, en route to the World Series title … *sigh*)


  70. gigi-hawaii May 20, 2012 5:06 pm

    Hi Jason: You are correct. Sorry for the typo. Clippers no get chance. Loll.


  71. long time lurker, first time poster May 20, 2012 5:15 pm

    Does anyone know how Dara Pagaduan is doing? I hope she’s not hurt too seriously. Another blog that I read has screencaps from the game. That was an impressive hole that Kaile Nakao made to that car with that foul ball ๐Ÿ˜€


  72. BigHiloFan2 May 20, 2012 5:40 pm

    Hi Kekoa.

    thanks for the heads up. or was that heads down. ๐Ÿ˜†


  73. Derek May 20, 2012 6:01 pm

    After a great start to the season I would say that the Wahine was a major disappointment at the end. The pitching went south and so was the defense. I was wrong. The hitting was good enough. Big leads against BYU, Fresno St, Notre Dame, and North Dakota St. and they couldn’t hold it. Seemed like Ricketts and Parnaby hit the wall at the same time. I have a hollow feeling after so much promise. 44-9 is a great record, but after it’s all said and done you don’t feel good. It’s a nightmare. Reasons why? That’s a good question. Coolen should respond.


  74. beau_guss May 20, 2012 6:26 pm

    I don’t understand the fascination with bringing in ti leaves for the big games…they never seem to help our luck…


  75. cocobean May 20, 2012 6:45 pm

    Ti leaves worked against BYU twice and the Buck Foise year. It’s just HI’s version of the four leaf clover or a rabbits foot, Something to carry for luck when you think you might need it.

    Just another way of saying we are unique, We are Hawaii.

    BTW. I have ti leaves in my yard but never brought any to a game. Was given leaves several times inside the stadium though.


  76. whitey May 20, 2012 7:05 pm

    with just baseball to go at UH, want to thank all the teams and players for providing great entertainment and showcasing Hawaii. best wishes to all the graduates and hope your future is bright.

    Re: Au’lani

    Do the walk-thru and check it out from top to bottom. See if you can ‘feel’ the mana. I stop there every once in awhile just to talk story with my nephews who lifeguard there (they are starting new jobs soon). They haven’t noticed any improvements in the food quality or price discounts for Kama’aina.

    Like I said, I think Walt would be sad.


  78. Kekoa May 20, 2012 7:21 pm

    Pomai & Kevin ~

    Any chance of putting together a Dinner for Na Wahine? I saw K. Majam on da news earlier talk about how their season ends without any recognition. I think with a media blitz, we could do this. How about getting JD to donate the Wong room in the SSC and use the UH catering service.


  79. el burro sabio May 20, 2012 7:23 pm

    #74 – and what good would that do now?


  80. whitey May 20, 2012 7:31 pm

    kekoa, you got a great point there. maybe the recognition dinnah should be right after the last home game, so everyone is still in school. i can see right now, it would be difficult cause most of the wahines went home after their last game. pass this on to our 2 tsaikos, pomai and kevin. they probably have sum great ideas. building traditions for future is good idea.


  81. whitey May 20, 2012 8:45 pm

    kekoa, thinking about spring sports and yes, both basebows and softbows season has been ending after school is pau. so how to recognize them is a problem. be nice to have recognition dinnah with boosters and fans and make them feel truly appreciated.


  82. Kekoa May 20, 2012 9:22 pm

    Yes Whitey, by all means, I’m sure we could plan something for next year that could fill the Sheraton Ball room with folks that would come in support of both ball clubs.

    If we can do it with the football team, and get all those players the recognition they deserve, then why not for both baseball and softball.


  83. jm2375 May 20, 2012 10:40 pm

    I’m all for post-season banquets to honor the teams, but first you need to get buy-in from the coaches. I think this was discussed in the past. Not sure Coolen was in favor of it. With softball especially, the end of the regular season is really close to the end of school and the girls are busy finishing school work, studying, packing, and practicing. Banquets done in the fall would mean that the seniors would not be able to take part unless they are still on campus.


  84. Asia North May 20, 2012 10:43 pm

    I hear you jm, but apparently KM is looking for some kind of solution for her and her mates. I think if the Tsaiko’s led the way, Coolen would have to honor what we are trying to do to gain more support.

    Like the Hawaiians say, Kukakuka

    Let’s discuss the problem

    Based on my observation, after a in foreclosure process home is bought at an auction, it is common for your borrower in order to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the bank loan. There are many loan merchants who try and have all costs and liens cleared by the future buyer. However, depending on a number of programs, polices, and state guidelines there may be many loans that aren’t easily handled through the switch of financial products. Therefore, the obligation still remains on the consumer that has had his or her property foreclosed on. Thank you sharing your opinions on this website.

    I don’t drink, but this was funny:

    A drunkard was brought to court.

    Just before the trial there was a commotion in the gallery.

    The judge pounded the gravel on his table and shouted, “Order, order.”

    The drunkard immediately responded,

    “Thank you, your honor, I’ll have a scotch and soda.”

    Little Portugee came running into the house after school one day, shouting,

    “Daddy!Daddy! I got a 100 in school today!”

    “That’s great, Son,” said his daddy.

    “Come in to the living room and tell me about it.”

    “Well, “began the confession, “I got 50 in spelling, 30 in math’s and 20 in science.”

    A senior citizen drove his brand new BMW Z4 convertible out of the car saleroom. Taking off down the motorway, he floored it to 90 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

    โ€˜Amazing!โ€™ he thought as he flew down the M40, enjoying pushing the pedal to the metal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.โ€™ I can get away from him โ€“ no problem!โ€™ thought the elderly gent as he floored it to 110 mph, then 120, then 130 mph.

    Suddenly, he thought, โ€˜What on earth am I doing? Iโ€™m too old for this nonsense!โ€™ So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him.

    Pulling in behind him, the police officer walked up to the driverโ€™s side of the BMW, looked at his watch and said, โ€˜Sir, my shift ends in 10 minutes. Today is Friday and Iโ€™m taking off for the weekend. If you can give me a reason why you were speeding that Iโ€™ve never heard before, Iโ€™ll let you go.โ€™

    The man looked very seriously at the policeman and replied, โ€˜Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman. I thought you were bringing her back.โ€™

    โ€˜Have a good day, Sir,โ€™ said the policeman.

    A box set of two cantaloupe melons has been sold at auction in Japan

    for one million yen (about $15,750), but because of tough economical

    financial times, that was far less than half the all-time record.
