Warriors add two GAs

Daniel Bukarau and Jared Vanderbeek have been recommended as graduate assistant coaches for the Warriors this season. Both served as volunteers during the spring semester.

They were selected from more than 50 applicants in a vetting process that took more than a month.

Bukarau will help coach the offensive line; Vanderbeek will work on defense.

Bukarau is a 2003 Kailua High graduate. He joined Utah as a walk-on offensive lineman in 2003, then went on a church mission to Costa Rica. He re-enrolled at Utah in the spring of 2007. He eventually received a football scholarship.

Vanderbeek had previously served as defensive coordinator at American River College. He is a 2004 graduate of Granite Bay (Calif.) High. He was a walk-on defensive back at California for two years (redshirting for a season) before transferring to American River College. He played his final two college seasons for Sacramento State.

The Warriors’ other two GAs are Inoke Funaki and Olivia Vea, who will assist video coordinator Dory Kong.

Head coach Norm Chow is considering creating two intern positions. The decision is awaiting the availability of funds.

* * * * *


While you were sleeping, Chow’s appearance on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” aired this morning at 3 Hawaii time. He defended the NCAA rule on transfers.

* * * * *

Receiver Chinedu Amadi has been told to practice his punting. The punting position is uncertain after Alex Dunnachie was arrested a week ago on an accusation of drunken driving. Dunnachie is scheduled to appear in District Court on Aug. 3.

Amadi averaged 39.2 yards per punt at Chino High School.

By the way, today is Amadi’s birthday.

  11. RedZone July 15, 2012 7:07 am

    So the new GAs will be the coaching assistants and Funaki will move over to assist our video coordinator as only 2 GAs are allowed by the NCAA to coach players. Or am I wrong? What will the 2 interns be doing as I don’t think they to aren’t allowed to work with the players? I remember Michigan having a problem using interns a while back.

    BigHilo:

    Put it this way: UH looks under the sofa cushion for loose change. Where are they going to get $17,000 for insurance?

    And why would they need insurance if they believe someone is trustworthy?

    Suppose we were going to have a blog party, and we give our money to I Wonder Why They Hate Me. We wouldn’t take out insurance against him conning us. We’d trust him, right?


  15. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:15 am

    RedZone:

    Funaki will be an on-field GA, as he was the past two years.

    Vea will be the video assistant, as she was this past spring.


  16. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:18 am

    In the past, a team was allowed a maximum of two GAs.

    Now it can have four.

    If UH were to create an intern position, that intern would be working only in the office.

    As I stated before, Chow is the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. So QBs need not send fruit baskets to Lee.

    Recorded Outside the lines… just watched it. Very interesting topic. Some changes definitely needs to change.

    Letters of intent is a contract for a year, and colleges can not renew your scholarship at the end of any year without penalty, why can the student not transfer without penalty?

    If Coach has evidence BYU is “tampering” why not take it to NCAA?


  20. BigHiloFan2 July 15, 2012 7:21 am

    ST

    the same place they found 200K. insteada saying 200K upfront to SW, say 217K upfront.

    I don’t know who this Peyton guy is. but when I read things, supposedly from him, that

    things are still a go, I’m thinking to myself, who is this guy?

    he definitely don’t sound like IWWTHM. us guys on the blog definitely roll da food around in da mout befo we choose swallow or spitout.


  21. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:22 am

    One thing I know for sure: UH will not be sending any additional money to concert “promoters.”

    I’m still trying to figure out if UH was a victim of fraud, as the president put it, why are two people on suspension? C’mon, did she think it was an inside job?


  22. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:31 am

    You have to be at least 19 to go on an LDS mission.

    So, many go to a school for a year before going on the mission. In Mike Wadsworth’s case, that meant he had a year to audition as a Division I player.

    On a mission, a person has limited contact with his family and football team.

    The argument is if BYU wanted to recruit Wadsworth, it should have done so as a high school senior. Reminds me of HPD training officers who end up taking jobs in Seattle. I’d bill Seattle for training expenses.

    Anyway, UH was going to release Wadsworth to every school but BYU. He still can go to BYU and play in 2012, he just can’t be on football scholarship for a year.

    That was the deal with Stump Godfrey, who was not released to UH.


  23. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:33 am

    Not sure who Peyton is, either, but UH always identifies him as an alumnus. (Of course, alumnus means you attended the school, not necessarily that you graduated from there.)


  24. ai-eee-soos July 15, 2012 7:33 am

    Insurance should (must) have been bought – this was a $1 mill venture.

    And the other guy must have been required to post a “performance” (terminolgy?)

    bond of some sort. You lawyers chime in on this.

    The business world, especially the entertainment world, is full of sharks, as we all

    found out. (My comment: some, if not many of us on this rock, are so naive.)


  25. BigHiloFan2 July 15, 2012 7:35 am

    so i googled Bob Peyton and came up with this story.

    http://urbanhonolulu.hawaiinewsnow.com/news/news/99889-promoter-uh-stevie-wonder-deposit-money-found

    supposedly “they”/”he” found the money. how did he “find” the money?

    To tie in BP to a cute name, like IWWTHM, is a sully onna good name.

    unless you no sumtin wong.

  26. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:37 am

    BigHilo:

    If it came from revolving funds, then that means money that comes in and then goes out. It sounds like that could mean season-ticket money.

    Then again, UH has a lot of sources of income. It also could bank money and draw interest.

    I dunno.

    I just want to know where they’re getting the money to pay for the investigators.


  27. hilosupaman July 15, 2012 7:37 am

    ST: Thanks, that makes a lot more sense. Good on Coach for not putting all the business out there.

    Still that does sound like tampering a little no? If so why not have the NCAA investigate and send in the “evidence”?

    did you know Charlie Warrington KHS from back in day day?


  29. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:40 am

    By the way, let’s not pretend here: Upper Campus knows what happened. It knows the procedures.

    The question is: Why did whomever were involved believe the organizers were trustworthy? That’s the big issue.

    Go back to the memo were the president says many unattributed statements were false. That, of course, means they know what is true.


  30. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:43 am

    If I were BYU, I would try the same thing.

    It worked in getting Riley Nelson.

    And if I were recruiting LDS players β€” like UH and Washington State are β€” I wouldn’t release returning missionaries to BYU, either.

  33. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 7:48 am

    When the chancellor said he wants “our money” back, well, it would be like, “come and get it.”

    When the acting AD said he wants “our money” back, it would be wise to sell the family jewelry to pay back the “loan.” The man is a human eclipse.


  34. Shoko July 15, 2012 7:53 am

    I think the suspensions were initiated to protect the integrity of the investigation. Wouldn’t want the people that are under investigation to have full access to computers allowing them to start deleting e-mails and other documents.

    Not that I’m saying thats the case with JD and RS. The actions taken were just standard protocol and not necessarily pointing the finger.


  35. Old School Dave July 15, 2012 7:55 am

    LDS missionary system has been criticized by many. Like joining the military, your NCAA clock is on hold if you go on a mission. It can be beneficial or have a negative effect. Some players continue to work out and train, depending on where they serve their missions and come back bigger, stronger and more mature (BYU’s 24-year old linemen). Others come back and decide that they no longer wish to play.

    I think the issue at hand is whether BYU contacted Riley Nielsen while he was on his mission, which influenced his decision not to return to Utah State.

    Back in the 80s, I recall that UH recruited two JUCO players from Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho). Both attended UH for one spring semester, then went on their missions. Both of these players never returned after their missions and ended up at Oregon State and at Utah State, respectively.

    Wonderful article this morning mentioning the UHM leadership situation.

    This is where the real problem lies.

    People already wondering who should the next AD be and hell, they could hire anyone with vision or connections or whatever, as it stands under Greenwood unless the attitude has changed from upper campus about what athletics should be all about to the university, no new AD will be able to “spread their wings”.

    They’ll just quit or succumb to the eventual mess.

    Just as one athletic department employee said: “you either learn to slow down your pace or you decide this place is not for you”.


  45. Kevin July 15, 2012 9:38 am

    … and how much they bill UH. As tommui pointed out, last investigations by these people cost as much as the amount UH is searching for/lost.

    Another prominent lawyer pointed out the possible conflict of interest of the investigators. Find that Admin (that hired them) at fault or culpable–then odds are you won’t see another $$$ contract again. Dunno, but most lawyers would examine their findings with this in mind.

    UH is missing the point.

    We know where the $200,000 went. It went to the “promoters.”

    But the athletic department has an accumulated deficit of $12 million.

    UH should be trying to figure out where the $11,800,000 went.

    I agree with the current NCAA transfer rules. However, if a coach takes another job or is fired, I believe that the players he recruited should be able to transfer without having to sit out.

  56. tom mui July 15, 2012 10:22 am

    Might I point out what I had posted previously.

    If the press/Payton/Greenwood can be believed, the Wonder people want more money than was agreed upon between Payton and whoever he was dealing with.

    Payton says that the “downpayment” is in the hands of the proper people representing Stevie Wonder.

    It was said that the concert at SSC was for the benefit of the UHAD. But the latest development according to the Wonder people is that there would be TWO concerts, one at SSC and the other in Maui.

    As the “agreement” is somewhat all screwed up, there is no meeting of the minds and the $200,000 in the hands of the Wonder people should be returned to UH.

    What puzzles me is the Maui concert. Who was to benefit from that concert? If it was not the UHAD, was this a case of using other people’s money (UHAD) to have a concert to benefit someone else?

    Per the press release that CSF&W is being hired by the UH to investigate this matter. This law firm did the investigations of the Gib Arnold matter and the scholarship/no scholarship matter. There was also mention that the law firm received about $250,000 for doing the two investigations..

    If one can assume that it will be about $125,000 to investigate the Wonder blunder, that would be more than 50% of the loss suffered by the UHAD i.e. the $200,000 deposit.

    As SteveM points out: “Another prominent lawyer pointed out the possible conflict of interest of the investigators. Find that Admin (that hired them) at fault or culpable–then odds are you won’t see another $$$ contract again.”

    Iwonderwhytheyhateme – has to be one of the all-time great blog names. JD probably thinking the same thing. JD taking the fall, but really didn’t think they were going to renew his contract anyways. This makes it easy for them. Real responsibility is with MC Hammer Greenwood. Of course, she didn’t know anything about Stevie coming to UH even tho there was a full page ad in the paper and she runs the UH system. If she didn’t know, she should have. She should go run some laps with the DUI boys.

    It is just me or was Norm Chow put in front of a firing squad on ESPN OTL this morning? Not sure why Chow agreed to appear. He had one foot in the imu before they even introduced him to the show. The whole story was slanted toward the student athletes point of view. In the case of Mike Wadsworth IMHO and not based on any facts 1). Coming out of high school he did not get offered a scholarship from his first pick school BYU 2). He was offered by Arizona or ASU, and UH 3). Probably chose Hawaii because he would play his first year rather than gray/red shirting for the PAC-12 school 4). Went on his LDS mission with his Division I highlight reel in his back pocket. To me this is a case of a student athlete doing what they have to to get what they want. Definitely not in line with the story ESPN was trying to tell. I don’t fault Wadsworth for anything. He gets to leave Hawaii and walk on at BYU. “If at first you don’t succeed try, and try again.” I bet Mike isn’t loosing any sleep over this transfer business. Some will say it’s unfair because he won’t be allowed a scholarship his first year at BYU. If BYU wanted him so badly they should have offered him a scholarship in the first place. As a fan I don’t want to see one-and-done athletes. I want to cheer for guys that earn a spot on the roster and improve each year. I want to cheer for guys that buy into the system and become a part of our community after graduation.


  64. Stretch July 15, 2012 12:16 pm

    Haven’t been keeping up too much on the blog lately due to work, so sorry if this has already been posted by someone else.

    Why is it that only JD and RS being put on leave? There were other people involved with the process of setting up the concert and more importantly, releasing the funds. By suspending only the two of them, it has the appearance they did something illegal. From what I have been reading and hearing, I don’t think anything illegal took place, it was just a big mistake.

    your comment “this case stands for the proposition that UH should not be running Aloha Stadium” really cranks my jaws in a sour way. πŸ‘Ώ

    I am waiting for Tracey to speak. πŸ˜€

    #65,

    Might never get the answer to your question. At best we find out at the conclusion of the investigation. JD I can understand as he is the head. Sheriff, apparently because he was the negotiator for the deal. I’m quite sure nothing criminal happened but I don’t think UH is ruling that out either. The path to hell is paved with…


  76. iwonderwhytheyhateme July 15, 2012 1:17 pm

    Does anyone have a link to the OTL interview with Chow?


  77. tom mui July 15, 2012 1:22 pm

    #65 STRETCH: Certain items that show up on the Blog bore me too. Other items can be interesting.

    To each his own.

    And what you have to say in #65, I agree with you. It would seem that there are others who are involved in Wondergate including some up in the Upper Campus – excluding Tom Apple who is too brand new.


  78. oneseason July 15, 2012 1:24 pm

    The scam (alleged, I guess) might have added Maui relatively recently (#1). At least UH didn’t go to Goldman Sachs, pay $5M for advice, and then lose $580M like (#2).

    There is evidence all around, without this concert fiasco, that the university, let alone the athletic department cannot handle a facility like Aloha Stadium.

    They cannot consistently manage or maintain current facilities.. ALL facilities to modern day standards.


  80. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 1:38 pm

    Well, they could hire Bob Coolen to run Aloha Stadium. He’d get the job done.


  81. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 1:40 pm

    I remember there was a UH player whose mo-ped was stolen.

    So he reported it to the FBI.

    Of course, I can imagine they rolled their eyes and put the request in the circular file.

    I’m sure the FBI has better things to do than hunt down sucker money.


  82. wafan July 15, 2012 1:41 pm

    It might be a wash if Coolen ran Aloha Stadium — no grass to cut, but a lot of painting!


  83. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 1:41 pm

    Want to find the money? Tell Dog he can have a quarter of it if he finds the $200,000.


  84. wafan July 15, 2012 1:42 pm

    And . . .

    Good afternoon Tsai-kos and Tsai-kettes!


  85. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 1:42 pm

    Coolen loves to clean.

    As I mentioned before, he figured out the sprinkler system and, sometimes, comes in on weekends to water the flora near the athletic complex.


  86. wafan July 15, 2012 1:43 pm

    Went to Monterey Cannery yesterday for the first time.

    It will probably be the last time, too.

    Not impressed with the food.


  87. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 1:43 pm

    I think it’s funny the guy who is in charge of the UH grass fields lives in a condo.


  88. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 1:44 pm

    . . . almost as funny as selling tuna sandwiches at Sea Life Park.


  89. wafan July 15, 2012 1:45 pm

    Heck, Coolen might have enough time to paint the stadium, then.

    No grass to water.


  90. wafan July 15, 2012 1:47 pm

    So, gotta ask. Is the stadium that brown color so you cannot see from the rusted areas from a distance?


  91. HiFlyer July 15, 2012 2:01 pm

    wafan – they where painting the upper half green last year don’t know how if they are totally finished.


  92. wafan July 15, 2012 2:06 pm

    Maybe they ran out of funding since only the top part is green. Or did the rust come through the green and turn it brown on the bottom?

    Dang. I am so confused.


  93. SteveM July 15, 2012 2:11 pm

    I thought the FBI has authority and jurisdiction if the suspects crosses the state line. The money in this case, went to someone in Florida. Is there a newer interpretation? I know the exception is terrorist activity.


  94. Ipu Man July 15, 2012 2:13 pm

    Wafan, the colors are to lure the Green Bay Packers (and Alex Green) here

    for an exhibition game…hopefully…why not?


  95. SteveM July 15, 2012 2:15 pm

    Ooops…found the FBI answer:

    Former Rainbow Warrior Bill Amis retires from basketball and moves into the mortgage business.

    “well i guess facebook is probably the best platform to do this. I have decided to retire from basketball. I have accepted a job in real estate in Hawaii with Hawaii Mortgage Central. I could not be more excited for this opportunity. Thanks to everyone who supported me playing basketball over the years, it was a good ride but now time to move on.


  97. WarriorNY July 15, 2012 2:18 pm

    SteveM,

    Thanks for the clarification.

    To my knowledge, wiring of funds for the purpose of fraud is a federal crime as long as it crosses state lines, but in the case of mail fraud it doesn’t have to. You can mail a check to your neighbor and it would still be a federal crime. However, I wouldn’t try to defraud you next-door neighbor. He might burn your house down…lol

    Why is it when you download a PDF file your text size changes? I downloaded the MWC Code book and now the lettering is so small I can barely read it! Now I gotta spend an hour how to change it back. Bah, waste of time…


  101. turfwar July 15, 2012 3:50 pm

    Thanks for the run Bill. You brought many good memories. You know the NCAA Summer League is still going on. How about jumping on a team and continuing the ride to keep in shape. It’s also a good way to market yourself and allow the fans to enjoy your play for years to come.

    With 4 GA positions now filled, where does that leave Arceneaux and/or Samuseva?

    Possible “interns”? Hmmmm….

    #91 – 93,

    http://www.bizjournals.com/pacific/print-edition/2012/06/22/work-slows-at-aloha-stadium-as.html?page=all

    New funding for Aloha Stadium work not supported thus far by Gov Neil so any future painting work currently on-hold. Whatever is green was painted from 2009, while whatever is brown was last painted back in mid-90’s.

    Whatever work already completed or scheduled to be completed through next year (i.e., new roof, waterproofing & AC pavement replacement, new handrails & guardrails, new synthetic turf playing surface, new orange section seats, miscellaneous electrical power upgrades, etc.) was funded by past Gov LL.


  107. al July 15, 2012 5:22 pm

    happy birthday kawika49.

    i had feeling that 49 represented some kind of time stamp.

    and it was a very good year.


  108. iwonderwhytheyhateme July 15, 2012 5:22 pm

    I wonder how many aloha shirts Tom Apple bought at one time once he was appointed to the chancellor post.

    and you went to st louis.

  111. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 5:25 pm

    Kapakahi:

    They certainly would be top candidates for intern positions.

    But those would be non-coaching positions, I’ve been told.

    And, as of now, there’s no money to even create those positions.


  112. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 5:26 pm

  114. kapakahi July 15, 2012 5:54 pm

    Not to say that it could never happen, but JMHO that definitely less likely to happen at Aloha Stadium…..since their administrative rules require a private event promoter to submit a deposit (in addition to insurance)….not the other way around. Stadium Authority review & approval at monthly meeting also required.

    http://hawaii.gov/dags/rules/stadium

    That’s how The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Gloria Estefan, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, U2, Celine Dion, and Ziggy Marley…..as well as sporting events….were arranged at Aloha Stadium.


  115. SteveM July 15, 2012 6:43 pm

    yup, the 49 has significance to a few of us… πŸ™‚

    Prayers and positive thoughts to those in need and their loved ones.


  127. Stephen Tsai July 15, 2012 9:47 pm

    An intern is essentially a fulltime job. The starting point is a GA, which equates to the value of qbout $20,000 a year, including the tuition waiver. Now the waiver is actually monetized so UH has to come up with the cash, which eventually be refunded. I’d estimate at least $25,000-$30,000 is needed per intern position.

    This is a message to the webmaster. I came to your “The Warrior Beat | Warriors add two GAs | UH football, University of Hawaii athletics | staradvertiser.com | Honolulu, Hawaii” page via Google but it was hard to find as you were not on the first page of search results. This means you are missing out on a lot of web traffic from the search engines. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your website: http://venueseo.com/7-day-free-trial.
