Australia-raised punter Alex Dunnachie and offensive guard Adrian Thomas were  the guests on a live telecast of Sunrise Australia, which is that country’s version of the “Today” show. The segments were shot live at UH’s practice this morning, with the feed going to the tower at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, where it was beamed to a satellite. 

Here are Dunnachie, producer Chezzi Denyer and host Grant Denyer:


• Michael Sellers, a grayshirt who goes on scholarship in January, is reportedly in good shape and ready to compete at cornerback in the spring. Sellers, a 2010 Campbell High graduate, is 5 feet 11 and 170 pounds. 

• It took nine months for UH to officially name Grant Steen as Mel deLaura’s successor as UH assistant strength and conditioning coordinator. Steen is a popular choice among the UH football players and staff. The former Iowa linebacker was in two New England Patriots’ training camps, and he has assisted UH’s football, men’s volleyball and golf teams the past two years. It’s good UH made the right choice, but it would be better if the process were faster.

• The Warriors can’t wait for the new turf to be installed at Aloha Stadium next year. “It’s like playing on concrete,” said quarterback Bryant Moniz, displaying this 4-inch scab:


• I had trouble uploading photos last week, so here’s the pic of grayshirt Calen Friel:


• And, if anybody missed it, KITV featured right tackle Laupepa Letuli performing a song he wrote: First Love.

  10. Garret November 24, 2010 6:51 am

    No ESPN and CSTV totally different. But thats what makes the whole thing so juicy.

    You have ESPN wanting Hawaii in, MWC currently has CSTV (exp 2011) and you want to think they want to hold on to that MWC contract.

    So with Hawaii in you have an additional bargaining chip for the 2011 negotiations. ESPN already loves Boise but we want ESPN to say we love Hawaii too.

    It also does not hurt to have the commitment from Sheraton Hawaii Bowl to go with us to MWC. To bring in another bowl with us is HUGE…no one should down play that.


    I had read something about one of the TV contracts (VS) possibly expiring in 2 years, but when I looked into things I saw over 10 articles that specifically clarified that the MWC’s TV deal runs through *2016*. ESPN is shut out of the MWC TV deal until 2016, and ESPN is expected to win the bidding for the Pac-12 TV contract next year so I’m not sure how much they will want the MWC.

    The important thing to note is that the MWC TV deal is not expiring for 6 years and UH won’t be of any benefit to the MWC to any ESPN negotiations for a long time. However, Comcast has the right to reduce/increase the MWC’s current TV deal and I’m sure that UH is being used as a possible way for the MWC to not lose too much TV money after losing Utah, BYU, and possibly TCU. If Oceanic adds the mtn channel, then UH will be attractive to Comcast and help the MWC keep most/all of their current TV deal.

    Note to Wassupdoc: Given how nuts Hawaii is for UH sports, I’d be shocked if Oceanic does not add the mtn channel. All UH games should show up on VS, CBS CS, or mtn and every DirecTV subscriber will have access to all of those channels so the sports bars will have it. It will probably be cheaper for a Hawaii resident to get all 3 TV channels for the entire year than PPV costs now.

  11. Pomai November 24, 2010 6:59 am

    Garret I thought that I read somewhere that all the TV contracts could be renegotiated if the conference changed?

  12. gigi-hawaii November 24, 2010 7:01 am

    #10, How do we gain access to “all three TV channels” ? Through Direct TV ? We probably have to pay Oceanic extra for the Mtn channel ?

    How would we watch UH Big West basketball,baseball, volleyball, softball games, etc. on TV ?

    Will loss of PPV money by UH and cost of travel subsidies be made up from projected increase in ticket sales for when UH goes to the MWC ?

    (No travel subsidies when UH is in the WAC)

    I am sure the JD/Benson meeting was brief. Really, what else could Benson say? No doubt JD was polite and cordial, too.

    I wonder, was his call to the leadership team similar to the “calls” or “meetings” sales folks have with their managers to see if a better percentage can be offered.

    Still feeling sorry for SJSU, NMSU, and especially USU.

  21. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 7:33 am

    diehard fan:

    Probably all the same questions the UH admins are contemplating. Somebody’s gonna make money.. but it may not be UH. If the objective is simply to survive, then it’s all good. BUT, the cost may be more than anticipated.

    Just gotta sit and wait.

    Garret I know you have a lot on your plate, but I think if you could post a pro and con of us going to the MWC it would help a lot of people who read the blog understand why we should go into the MWC/BWC.

  25. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 7:44 am

    I have to wonder though, if BYU with it’s 10 million Mormon base potential viewer market share was worth 5 million per year… with them leaving the MWC will each school still receive the same amount of money? Or will the TV contract be adjusted downward and each share drop considerably leaving each with less than what they received in the WAC?

    Heading up to the Tulalip Resort tomorrow to check out the buffet and gaming area. i think it is the place Brew visited after the WSU game. It is about the same distance from Husky Stadium as it was from Qwest Field to the Snoqualmie Casino.

    Will have price, menu, etc. information for those few intrepid Tsai-kos visiting the PNW for the UW game next September.

  35. Kazz November 24, 2010 8:14 am

    I’m NOT Garret obviously, but let me take a shot at this:



    -Better competition and better strength of schedule for UH football.

    -Better national recognition with regards to football conference affiliation.



    -Going to cost us no matter what. Subsidies, loss of K5 TV deal or a downgrading of value, etc…

    -Bad locales for away games at high altitude and weather conditions (i.e. Colorado State, Wyoming, Nevada, etc…)

    -No nationally televised conference games on ESPN



    -No travel subsidies to pay.

    -SOME ESPN national exposure if we are lucky.



    -Drop in support for UH football due to less value in conference opponents

    -Significant drop in ESPN revenue from loss of BSU, UNR, and FSU.

    -Travel costs for conference away games increase due to new locations of schools.

    These are things just off the top of my head and what’s not even factored in is how the Hawaii Bowl will be negotiated. Will the MWC like the fact that Hawaii gets an invite with meeting minimum bowl eligibilty status every year and other MWC teams with better records are automatically left out? What if the Hawaii Bowl people open up their conditional invite outside of UH? Will the MWC like adding a bowl game where their team (other than UH) stands to lose money for participating in it?

    The more I think about it, the more I realize that the WAC is NOT a long term option for UH but it is still an option… UNFORTUNATELY… 👿

    I know MWC has TV contracts of their own, but has TCU never been on ESPN? I know I’ve seen them on TV, but maybe it wasn’t ESPN then, but I don’t usually watch Versus, or whatever other MWC station there is.

  39. Okole Maluna November 24, 2010 8:24 am

    It would be nice if UH can keep the PPV and collect $2.5 Mil but it would be much less since MTW Network shows will cover most of those games.

    But to be in MTW — To show a football game on local TV, a school must get permission from the TV partners. That is rarely granted because those networks are trying to build their subscriber bases and are protective of their time windows. Boise State shows about half of its regular-season games on local TV and UH shows all of Football and basketball only home games. The Mtn. essentially replaces the local TV broadcasts.

    ESPN righ now allows UH to have local rights as in PPV but not in MWC that is the #1 reason BYU left to develop their own BYU Network.

    Once we join MWC we may not be able to see as many UH games on TV as we have been. Hawaii local TV network is very unique to Hawii thanks to Oceanic $2.5 Million yearly deal to program all UH Sports program on PPV or KFVE. We just got spoiled and hence Aloha Stadium and SSC attendence is suffering with many open seats.

    As I said earlier posting, less local TV exposer will bring back fans to the Area, well hopefully.

    Now that UH Basketball is on a run with No Losses hopefully we’ll have more fans coming out many sell outs to come.

    TV should be only seen locally, if the game is SOLD OUT… Just like in the NFL…

    Todays Warriors BB game in not shown on KFVE but on PPV. I have PPV but we are still going to the GAME.

    Can’t miss the winning streak… Bad Luck if we miss any…

    GO Warriors.

    looks like Calen Friel is putting on the wrong kind of weight.

  41. Old Diver November 24, 2010 8:35 am



    I would also add staying in the WAC might affect football recruiting. If it does and the football team cannot field a respectable team PPV revenues will fall anyway. This will have dire consequences on the rest of the athletic department.

  42. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 8:40 am

    Somewhat older.. but in depth article leading up to BYU’s defection of the MWC based on their CSTV disagreements.

  45. diehard fan November 24, 2010 8:49 am

    Good analyses, # 35, 39, & others. Note Air Force is at altitude too.

    Also, it has been said the UH may prefer to have its other sports in the Big West to cut down on travel costs vs. full membership in the MWC.

    What do you guys mean when you say Calen is putting on the wrong kind of weight?

  48. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 8:54 am


    I suppose they are referring to Calen originally being a projected DE.. and now looking (weighing) more like a DT.

  49. papajoe2 November 24, 2010 8:59 am

    A few months ago, I posted “remember those schools that the Southeast conference plays during the non conference schedule”. I already forgot the weak schools that they played, but in reference to the Ohio State president, who says we don’t play the “sisters of the poor” with his school and the SEC where he used to work, check out their schedule. I’m sure most of the nation already forgot what weak schools that they played as I also forgot, but I know there were teams like Troy, directional Arkansas, etc.

  52. kev-1 November 24, 2010 9:05 am

    NCAA . . . just what MIH says. the other day it was posted that he had put on a lot of weight, and now we see his picture. A lot of people I think, including myself, assumed he had been a beast in the weight room and it was paying off. His picture makes it look like he’s been more of a beast at L&L. He may very well still be a beast in the weight room too.

  53. na koa mike November 24, 2010 9:07 am

    11/22 lunch report is up:


  54. NCAA November 24, 2010 9:19 am

    To me he doesn’t look like an L&L visitor. Can’t really tell by the shirt he’s wearing. Some guys look completely different when the shirt is absent.

    To me he looks thinner than some of the current Warrior d-lineman. Maybe it’s his height and weight distribution.

    If he meets the hype that has been mentioned by others then it wouldn’t matter what we think. LOL

  55. Souljah November 24, 2010 9:20 am

    The reason Calen Friel might look fat is because he tore his ACL so he couldn’t run for a while.

    But does anyone remember Destin Stewart…the Oklahoma WR that got away…that supposedly ended up at tulsa. N E wayz he is at a JC now:


  56. NCAA November 24, 2010 9:37 am

    More info on Stewart:


  57. NCAA November 24, 2010 9:39 am

    BTW, did Stewart get away or did UH admissions screw up?

  58. Turfwar November 24, 2010 9:44 am

    Callen was recruited for the DT position although he was a DE for Kailua.

  59. kev-1 November 24, 2010 9:45 am

    let me clear this up. I’m not commenting on his work ethic or anything or his talent. I just said that because of the rapid increase in his weight. I’m sure the guy is a beast. And D-linemen need the weight anyway, so the bigger the better.

  60. Kazz November 24, 2010 9:49 am

    Missed most of the BC show this morning but I agree with the fact that the real key NOW, is to lock up our situation and deal with the Big West for our 16 other programs.

    The two most probably instances for football is to the MWC or to stay in the WAC. I think it’s 70% to go and 30% to stay considering all the talks about how TV deals will go and such.

    The ONE thing that NEEDS to happen for UH basketball, baseball, volleyball, softball, tennis, track and field, etc… is to get situated in the Big West. It’s a freakin’ no-brainer.


    -mucho savings on travel by only going to California

    -easier to recruit for volleyball, baseball, and softball considering a lot of our recruits in these sports already come from Cali and those guys and gals get to see “home” a lot on conference road trips.

    -more fans support on away games. Lots of Hawaii transplants and relatives in California!!!!!!!

    -better competition in volleyball and baseball. Softball is down a little in the Big West, but the potential for overall competition is there. Cali is a recruiting hotbed for baseball and softball talent.


    -have to subsidize travel. So what? SEE ABOVE!!!!!!!!

    The bottom line is 18 other sports drain the athletic department’s budget. Of the 18, men’s basketball and women’s volleyball can make money, especially women’s volleyball, but the others are going to be in the red a lot. Travel for these sports in the larger reaching WAC is not a responsible and viable financial option for UH athletics.

    I will feel better about locking up the Big West in the beginning of December and willing to wait longer on what football does.

    I think we are going to have to wait at least until December 8th as that was the reported date as to when the Big West can officially announce or make a decision.

    I think UH will also have to wait until December 1st to submit their ‘report’ to the Big West.

    Did he say what our needs are?

    Is Rockne Freitas the Godfather of UH athletics? Kamehameha, meha, Freitas!!!!! Seems like he’s a powerful guy and is well connected.

    BCS = B-ecuase we C-an’t handle losing to a team that is supposed to S-uck

    the system is so flawed and driven by $$$ it is really just b___s___

    pretty soon, when people want to say that something is BS, they are just going to say “that’s BCS” because the two words are so interchangeable.

    *Off topic, but football-related item*

    From espn.com:

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Even if TCU and Boise State run the table, they still don’t deserve to be in the Bowl Championship Series title game, Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee said Wednesday.

    In an interview with The Associated Press, the president at the university with the largest athletic program in the country said that TCU and Boise State do not face a difficult enough schedule to play in the national championship game.

    “Well, I don’t know enough about the Xs and Os of college football,” said Gee, formerly the president at West Virginia, Colorado, Brown and Vanderbilt universities. “I do know, having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it’s like murderer’s row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.

    “So I think until a university runs through that gantlet that there’s some reason to believe that they not be the best teams to [be] in the big ballgame.”

    Gee, long an admirer of the BCS and the current bowl system, said he was against a playoff in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

    “If you put a gun to my head and said, ‘What are you going to do about a playoff system [if] the BCS system as it now exists goes away?’ I would vote immediately to go back to the bowl system,” he said.

    He said the current system is better for the student-athletes.

    “It’s not about this incessant drive to have a national championship because I think that’s a slippery slope to professionalism,” he said. “I’m a fan of the bowl system and I think that by and large it’s worked very, very well.”

    He cited Ohio State’s presence in the 2007 national title game as an example.

    The Buckeyes won their first 10 games that season to rise to No. 1 before losing 26-21 at home to unranked Illinois. They fell all the way to No. 8 in the BCS standings.

    A series of upsets over the final weeks of the regular season and in other team’s conference championship games led to the Buckeyes climbing all the way back to the No. 1 spot in the final BCS standings. They were matched against an LSU team with two losses.

    Ohio State led 10-0 early only to have LSU come back and score the next 31 points in a 38-24 victory at the Louisiana Superdome.

    “You know, it’s a mystery,” Gee said. “We were No. 1, then No. 11, then No. 7 and we ended up playing for the national championship. I think I kind of like that mixed-up mystery.”

    While he was at Vanderbilt, Gee abolished the athletic department since it was underwritten by the university’s general fund anyway. He said he has no problem with an Ohio State program that fields 36 intercollegiate varsity teams and has an annual budget exceeding $120 million.

    “Here, athletics pays for itself and also pays for academic programs at the institution,” he said. “The other thing, of course, that I take a look at and see how well we are doing in terms of that notion of balance, which is what I was all about at Vanderbilt, which I am all about here.”

    He said Ohio State’s eighth-ranked football team, which plays rival Michigan on Saturday, is in the top 10 in the nation not only on the field but also in terms of academic progress.

    “That’s the kind of balance I want to have,” he said.

    Works for the student-athletes? For who? The privileged???? The RICH???

    What a JERK!!!

    Go ask the student athletes at all the colleges that are facing an uncertain future with all these conference shifts. Conference re-alignment in an attempt to grab as much money as possible is a result of this BCS system that feeds the obese wallets of the wealthy and blind people at places like Ohio State.

    Oh and are we supposed to be surprised that he liked the fact that his school’s wishy-washy ranking landed them in a national title game??? WOW!!!! Really? Why should we be surprised that for individuals like him that face no REAL risk enjoy falling ***-backwards into a good situation????

    The BCS is nothing more than the privatization of college football and ultimately the privatization of collegiate athletics.

  93. Kazz November 24, 2010 11:34 am

    If the RAPTURE is supposed to occur on May 23, 2011.

    I can guarantee that goofball Gee will be left wondering where everyone is.

    Then maybe I will be able to find him with less people in the world and punch him in the face.

    That’s right, I ain’t going nowhere!!! 😆

  95. papajoe2 November 24, 2010 11:43 am

    These are some of the schools that the SEC played this year that former SEC president and current Ohio State president referred to. Georgia State (first year, sub division), Troy (gave up 80+ points vs South Carolina), Louisiana Monroe (3 times vs LSU, Auburn, Arkansas), Louisiana LaFayette (2 times vs. LSU, Arkansas), Charleston Southern, McNeese, Akron, Furman, Arkansas State. All of these teams got romped. Padding the polls? Not any “sisters of the poor schools”.

  96. mctruck November 24, 2010 11:43 am

    Congrats to Chaminade in their victory over, Oklahoma in bb. WOW!!, another Ralph Samson-ish victory for our sister Hawaii program!!

  98. Old Diver November 24, 2010 11:47 am

    After reading “Death to the BCS” I too was mystified why many school president’s want to keep the BCS system. I’m now thinking it has to do with stature. A playoff system does not guarantee a Big Ten school will make the quarterfinals, semifinals much less the finals. The present system guarantees the Big Ten a BCS bowl and the Big Ten’s relevance in college sports today. Your thought’s?

  99. Kazz November 24, 2010 11:48 am


    This is how people like him talk and think and approach life.

    “I am better, we are better, everyone else has no business breathing MY air I paid for…”

    Anyone heard this before.

    In all walks of life, these human wastes of space declare their status to the world and expect us to eat their feces as if they were sour skittles.

    If I sound hypocritical to anyone then you are missing my point. I have said before that college athletics and the ability to compete at the division one level is indeed a privilege, BUT it is a privilege that must be offered on a leveled scale.

    We see this opportunity in almost ALL division one team sports. From women’s softball, baseball, and men’s and women’s basketball, all these student-athletes that participate regardless of their school’s financial situation or prestige, can compete for national recognition and for a national championship.

    However football is king and drives the funding for these other sports and this is one area lacking a leveled-scale of opportunity.

    Citing research from the book “DEATH TO THE BCS”, $400,000,000.00 is sitting out there and remains undistributed to many division one programs that could use a little “boost”.

    The BCS ensures that the wealth is NOT spread around.

    There is no argument that will stand in the court of ethics and decency that says this is right.

    The NCAA is no longer in charge anymore in these matters.

    They are like the cops in Gotham City that got bought out or are too afraid of the mob to do anything.

    College athletics needs a “Harvey Dent” to start ruffling feathers.

  108. papajoe2 November 24, 2010 12:02 pm

    Here are some of the teams the MIGHTY Big Ten played this year. Arkansas State, Northern Colorado, Central Michigan, Austin Peay, Akron, Ohio, Kent State, Ball State, Western Kentucky, Illinois State, Western Illinois, Southern Illinois, Townson, Middle Tennesee State, Western Michigan, Youngstown State, Eastern Illinois, and the ALL MIGHTY Minnesota that was upset by WORLD POWER South Dakota. Granted, some of these teams may be D1, but they are not football powers. No “sisters of the poor” here, right? Mr. Gee.

  109. Old Diver November 24, 2010 12:03 pm

    I love when supposedly smart guys open their mouths and show their ignorance. President Gordon Gee from Ohio St. is an idiot. I would really like to see TCU or Boise St. play the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl or any other BCS game. This will be a big weekend. I really believe Alabama will beat Auburn by at least a touchdown and I also think Oregon will get a scare against Arizona in Eugene, but the Ducks will win in the end by less than 10 points. Boise St. will demolish Nevada and TCU is on cruise control against New Mexico. After the weekend, the rankings will be 1) Oregon 2) Boise St. 3) TCU 4) Wisconsin 5) Auburn. Arkansas will beat LSU at home, Penn St. will beat Michigan State at home. Other prognostications:

    Akron to win their first game of the season by beating Buffalo at home

    SMU will beat E. Carolina on the road (E. Carolina is dead last in total defense).

    Texas A&M easily to beat Texas tomorrow. (Texas will not go to a bowl game, 5-7)

    Stanford to cover the spread at home against Oregon St.

    Oklahoma St. beating Oklahoma at home.

    Idaho will surprise Fresno St. in Fresno.

    UH to win by over 35 on the road against New Mexico St.

    Look for Boise St. to play Oregon in the National Championship. And the winner is: Of Course, Boise St. They beat them last year, they can do it again. The difference, Boise’s defense and Kellen Moore. As the Monkees said, “I’m a Believer”. When Boise St. shuts down Hawaii like that that tells you something. When Boise St. beats Fresno St. 51-0 and it could have been 65-0, that’s making a good statement. When they beat Nevada this Friday, something like 49-7, it’s making a big statement. Remember, UH beat Fresno and Nevada. UH is the 2nd best team in the WAC and we should be proud. Boise St. is just that good. They don’t beat themselves and they are just so solid on all fronts. I bet Presidnet Gordon Gee from Ohio St. has not played any football.

    Garret #10,

    I am looking for the article now but i read that in 2011/12 the MWC will be able to renegotiate its TV deal due to the conference shake up.

    I don’t know if that means that they will be able to get out of the deal completely if they choose or if they will just be able to renegotiate the deal with the same media outlet.

  117. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 12:33 pm

    I dunno about you guys, but I find that university’s president’s statement deliberately discriminatory, and hateful. I hope he get more than a month’s pay docked and a certain percentage cut every month.

    The BCS college presidents don’t want a playoff because they think they will lose the money they’re making every year. From http://www.walterfootball.com/bowls.php

    Also I think I heard they are treated like royalty by the bowl organizers.

    Also one writer said the NFL may not want the playoff system because it will interfere with their games and some Educators are against playoffs because the season will be extended for some student/athletes even later ( an extra 2 games ).

    As some have said, the major college football and basketball leagues are just farm systems for the NFL and NBA, like MLB has its minor league farm system. It’s more like athlete/ student ? than student/athlete. The athletes should be paid more to play in college (and supported by the NFL/NBA) .

    Also, the colleges and coaches make millions off of the players who can’t accept a few bucks on the side …

    Since the NCAA is unable to have a say in anything the BCS thinks or does, and the BCS seem to be operating out of control…maybe it’s time for the government to step in to force changes.

    I like the idea of taking from the rich,(aka-BCS), and giving to the poor; how’s about the government “taxing” the BCS profits(in sports), and using those funds spread among the non-BCS schools so they can use those funds to improve their financial needs, whatever they are. Hit them in their pocket books……lesser financial grants to students attending BCS schools and more to non-bcs students….let the BCS schools pickup the tab themselves. For starters…I think these options should get their attention.

  159. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 1:55 pm

    Maybe they should just put a cap on the total “value” of a football scholarship + COLA based on current Federal COLA guidelines.

    So if the average scholarship is $40K then that’s what it is across the board with the student athlete picking up the rest of the tab. Schools can offer less number of scholarships to cover additional costs.. but the max would be 85 X 40K for any school.

    How would that go over?

  160. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 1:56 pm

    IF, the school’s total scholarship program is less than the national average, they should be able to offer more scholarships until they max out the allottable dollar amount. The $$ amount must be spread equally between both sexes.

  161. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 1:58 pm

    So an institution with higher costs could offer 80 scholies at $42,500 per student… a lesser institution could offer 100 scholies at $34,000 per student.

  162. guava November 24, 2010 2:03 pm

    If Boise is givin the opportunity to play for the title, They could wake up this nation with holding the title with a win.

    But even if that happens, the haters out there will spill out of their pie hole every excuse possible of why they shouldn’t have it.

  163. NCAA November 24, 2010 2:08 pm

    Mr. Ralph,

    Say it isn’t a monopoly then what? No anti trust law in effect?

  164. NCAA November 24, 2010 2:11 pm

    Wouldn’t it be something if after all is said and done the final polls have BSU and TCU, #1 and #2! No matter, could be TCU #1 and BSU #2 but at least both schools rule the top 25!

  169. Old Diver November 24, 2010 2:25 pm


    The problem is big business by being big increase profits by reducing competition. Think Walmart. Big dominant business like the BCS working with another dominant business ESPN reduce competition by reducing the avenues of smaller institutions to compete. If we had more ESPN’s to compete against each other the consumer will benefit. Lower prices and a better product. A well regulated capitalistic system which breaks up companies when they become too dominant works best for the majority.

  170. kev-1 November 24, 2010 2:27 pm

    Someone throw me a clue!

  173. (Jesse)James November 24, 2010 2:42 pm

    Mr. Gee is in idiot….if what he is saying were the case, why do we have an NCAA basketball tournament every March??? The teams from the power basketball conferences who play a “murderer’s row” of teams during the season and in their conference tournaments are put into the same pot as those teams from smaller or weaker conferences to vie for the national championship. That’s what makes the BBall tournament so much fun…the potential upsets, marquee programs losing to “no-name” schools, david-goliath…..

    and the tournament makes millions of dollars…..

    The NCAA basketball tournament still makes more than enough money to fund the NCAA’s operations on an annual basis.

    I guess the NCAA got their $$$$, so why care about what the BCS is doing to 65-70% of college programs right?????? 🙄

    When Hawaii, Boise, and the rest of the WAC is stuck with mediocre teams to play, that’s socializm.

    The NCAA bb playoff system is Capitalizm.

    It gives everyone the Gizz’mz

  180. NCAA November 24, 2010 2:55 pm

    Maybe it’s time I changed my blog name. Too much “NCAA” being mentioned in posts and I’m getting paranoid. 😆

  181. Kazz November 24, 2010 2:58 pm

    Australia and Hawaii are just perfect together.

    From the beaches to the weather, it’s almost too similar considering the distances between the two.

    For our aussie Warriors and Rainbow Wahine coming to Hawaii, they get a free education while getting to play their sport, experience the continental US for away games, experience new cultures, and not have to get accustomed to a different climate. It’s a perfect situation.

    The recruitment of Australian student-athletes is a must and a no-brainer considering the talent level available down there and their willingness to come to Hawaii.

    It’s a short trip considering… well, if you can call a 20-hour plane ride “short”.

  182. Kazz November 24, 2010 3:00 pm


    Change it to “BCS” and you’ve just gained a PROBLEM.

    If it was 20 hrs in a plane from the land of Oz to Hawaii, no Aussies would be here.

    It’s a 10 hr direct flight – Hawaii.

    15 hr. direct from Sydney to L.A.

    Exactly why take a layover in Fiji or Cook Isle’s. and enjoy the rites.

    Oregon State University unwisely scheduled both TCU and Boise St. this year and ended up on the losing end of both contests. Mike Riley (OSU head coach) had genuine praise for both football programs, and at least they had the guts to play both of these teams. I bet the other OSU (Ohio State University) does not have the guts to schedule either of those teams for a legitimate home-and-home series. Heck, University of Oregon, after losing to Boise St. last year had someone at the school saying that they wouldn’t be scheduling Boise St. again. Some of these AQ schools know the truth about which football teams are legitimate and good teams. Others, like many in the Big Ten, are afraid to schedule and play these teams. I think the only case for them playing these teams would be a single game at their place … and for some of them, not even that.

    Did you guys miss that memo?

    Oh wait, are those still around?

  198. Pomai November 24, 2010 3:32 pm

    I agree about Mr. Gee, but he is not the top villain in this thing it’s Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delany. He is the power house behind keeping a playoff out of D1 football.

  199. NCAA November 24, 2010 3:34 pm

    Never been on a 747. Those things must be gas guzzlers.

  200. Souljah November 24, 2010 3:36 pm

    The best lines i’ve read so far on the topic:

    TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said this on ESPN Radio: “When a president of a major institution is taking shots at us, I know we’ve arrived… I thank him very much.”

    Hmm… what if every conference was require to maintain an average RPI index no greater than say… 44 over a 4-year period. This number would apply to individual divisions of a conference as well. Then every top team would need to be paired with a weaker team to balance out the conference.

  205. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 3:58 pm

    #114: Slugger, seeing gray shirts at practice I do believe is an NCAA violation. So

    how do you get this inside information on Calen Friel when he is not registerd at UH ?

    From my understanding this violates his elgibility and jeopardize his recruiting stature.

    Can you PLEASE explain because concern LOVE ones wants to know ?

  206. al November 24, 2010 4:09 pm

    rcliff…i believe that he has been observing practice on the side and actually participating in it. he may even be a part time student, but, st could verify that. in which case, no violations have been incurred.

  207. Confucious November 24, 2010 4:22 pm

    Think before you speak!

  208. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 4:28 pm

    #206 Al: I know the family and he is not a student, not even part time. Are you saying is he ACTUALLY participating in practice as that would be a violation as he is not enrolled ?

    And by the way he is in EXCELLENT condition as he has been trained by the VERY BEST FROM a RELIABLE resource !

  209. Confucious November 24, 2010 4:30 pm

    Some just want to hear themselves speak.

  216. Slugger November 24, 2010 4:49 pm

    RainbowCliff & al,

    Calen has been observing practice, not practicing. He’s just standing by the fence watching. How do I know he’s 295 lbs.? I asked him. He wanted to know who wanted to know how much he weighted. I just told him it was someone on Tsai’s blog. The coaches who know him have been saying HI to him as they go back to the complex.

    Good to Grill in Kapahulu Safeway center~ Today’s special $9.99 for a prime rib dinner with 2 sides. Good meal to eat before turkey day & listening to the WVB game.

    Thanks for your prayers a couple of month’s ago. My classmate recovered from that major life-threatening infection. I’m taking him a prime rib lunch tomorrow. Hallelujah! Mahalo Ke Akua & the Tsaikos.

    #210: MIH thank you for the clarification. Personal family members finds

    a lot of information concerning Mr. Friel being wrongly reported on this blog.

    I have been asked from love ones involved to PLEASE not post reports on

    Calen status as he is under recruiting and academic observation as UH is

    not the only school recruiting his services. NCAA is very much aware of his

    stature and WE would not want to jeopardize his elgibility both academically

    and athletically to UH or any other College Institution by an NCAA internal investigator.

    Your kokua is GREATLY appreciated !

    rcliff…i believe that he has been observing practice on the side and actually participating in it. he may even be a part time student, but, st could verify that. in which case, no violations have been incurred.

    i inadvertently omitted one key word.

    should have been…

    “i believe that he has been observing pratice on the side and not actually participating in it…..”

    if read my original post you can see that i did in fact omit the “not” otherwise the statement makes no sense. sorry for that. that is what happens when the mind outraces the fingers.

  232. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 5:30 pm

    Wow.. what’s going on with the Wahine? Trap game?

  233. wafan November 24, 2010 5:31 pm

    Turning off the game so the Wahine can take 3 straight.

  234. Kekoa November 24, 2010 5:31 pm

    1st time I’ve ever seen Dave Shoji looking and sounding worried about the team’s ability to respond. I guess that’s why he wants them to look within themselves to pull up their socks and come back strong.

  235. al November 24, 2010 5:32 pm

    Not a trap game, just Mafua choking, again.

  239. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 5:37 pm

    UNBEVELIABLE about the wahines !

    I just turned on to espnu and the volleyball girls are down two sets !

    15 service errors and no aces as Utah State has 5. Looks like the lady aggies

    has a game plan in tack and blocking UH at the net has taken it’s toll. Hope

    the wahines can come back as their seeding will be in JEOPARDY !

    If anyone should be ashamed it is Mafua, for the way she is playing again, in a big game.

  246. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 5:47 pm

    Wahines are so OFF their game. I NEVER seen them like this !

    Hope they can turn it around as the streak that they have ammased

    may be catching up to them.

    KANANI playing BIG TIME !

  260. Steve November 24, 2010 6:08 pm


    What Mafua did is cost the Wahine the WAC Championship, a good seeding in the NCAA Tournament, with her VERY ERRATIC SETTING. Making her hitters chase sets all over the court.

  261. iwonderwhytheyhateme November 24, 2010 6:08 pm

    Wow talk about a beat down…=(

  262. Steve November 24, 2010 6:11 pm

    Shoji, needs to reaccess the Setting position, if he wants to win a National Championship this year.

  263. labrat November 24, 2010 6:13 pm

    UHs passing is their weakness. Whenever it breaks down everything else goes downhill. Utah St is peaking now so i think they will give many teams problems in the NCAA tourney. They have a very good block. UH has always struggled against good blocking teams and when they can’t pass it makes trying to score so much harder.

  264. Steve November 24, 2010 6:14 pm

    Thanks to Mafua, I would not be surprised if the Wahine do not get out of the 1st or 2nd round of the Tournament. I can see them going against a California, Stanford, Penn St, or Nebraska, in one of those rounds. The Wahine will drop drastically now. Maybe even out of the Top 20, thank you Mafua!!!!

  265. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 6:15 pm

    What a shocker! I’m stunned…

    oh well… retribution will be ours, eh? GRRR!

    Rest up Wahine .. then get ready for the NCAA tournament.

  266. Steve November 24, 2010 6:15 pm

    Oh, by the way, where is Longboarder, now!!!!

  267. Kazz via DROID.X November 24, 2010 6:17 pm

    Heads up Wahine! We are better than this.

    We won as a team and we lost as a team tonight.

    Tough road ahead for the NCAA tournament but that is called redemption.

  268. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 6:17 pm

    TOUGH LOST for our lady wahines !

    A streak of numbers they put up finally caught up with them.

    Give Utah State credit as they really played sky high and caught

    the wahines off their game. Ladies got to regroup and get ready

    for the tournament. Upsets happen in sports and unfortunatly the

    wahines were victims of it. Still VERY PROUD of these GREAT ladies

    as they have been the FACE of Hawaii national prominance since I

    attended back in 1976.

    NOTHING to be ashamed about as they gave it their ALL and it was

    not their night.


  269. wafan November 24, 2010 6:17 pm

    Wow. I turned off the radio too late to be of any help. Hope they can regroup and come back with their “A” game from here on.

    Go Wahine!!!

    At least the monkey is off their back going into the NCAA tournament. I mean, no record breaking win streak to worry about.. just gotta go out and start a new one! Go WAHINE!! Proud of you all!

  276. madeinhawaii November 24, 2010 6:24 pm



    Use once.. flush twice.. Temple is far far away…

    That would be a four-flusher.

  278. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 6:30 pm

    MIH: You are right as a streak that they had was bound to come to an end.

    Get it out now and come back STRONGER as one lost don’t make a season.

    They are going into the tournament and like labrat stated Utah State is going

    to give a lot of competition to the field they are seeded. EVERYONE needs to

    back the wahines as they have been GREAT for Hawaii and at this time we don’t need

    to TRASH them but support them more then ever as I know they feel worst for the lost

    then we do.

    Go Wahines as you make ALL of us PROUD !

  279. koakane™ November 24, 2010 6:33 pm

    tough loss for the wahines, not to worry da wahines will be in the ncaa tourny, just get back to fundamentals and re-tune your vball skills. be ready for the next match, won’t be easy but can do.

    we here are taking it hard with you. steve take it down a notch, hard enough the WAC vball championship eluded the wahines. sure they are taking it hard too.

  280. wafan November 24, 2010 6:35 pm

    Well, time to get to bed.

    It was a long day with the district call at 5 this morning cancelling school, again. Then going in anyway to get caught up with paperwork followed by a second eye laser treatment.

    Wishing EVERYONE a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Eat a lot and be careful of the tryptophan poisioning!

    One player does not make you lose !

    You WIN as a TEAM and LOSE as a TEAM !

    This young lady is a FOUR year letter winner and has gain ALL WAC recognition !

  283. BG November 24, 2010 6:59 pm

    A big hand and congratulations to Utah State! If people are wondering why the Wahine lost, they just need to look on the other side of the net. They wanted it more, played harder and the Wahine couldn’t match their energy and execution. Give them their due.

    And Steve, stop making an A$$ of yourself with your rant. Haven’t you played sports before? You should know that it takes a team to beat a team. USU played as a team and Hawaii tried to respond with one player. At this level that very rarely ever works. Mafua might have gotten rattled from time to time, but so did the rest of the Wahine save one. Passers have to pass, hitters have to terminate, and blockers have to do their job. None of those parts were there at the same time. Life hands out lemons from time to time. It’s what we do with those that define who we are in life…not fans’ expectations.

  284. Steve November 24, 2010 7:14 pm


    It is true that Volleyball is a team game, but when one player always comes up short in big games, you need to start to wonder why. In every big game, her sets are nowhere close to where they are suppose to be, leaving her hitters to chase down her sets. I am coming to the conclusion that she is not capable of playing in big games, that those games are to big for her to handle.

    A big hand and congratulations to Utah State! If people are wondering why the Wahine lost, they just need to look on the other side of the net. They wanted it more, played harder and the Wahine couldn’t match their energy and execution. Give them their due.

    And Steve, stop making an A$$ of yourself with your rant. Haven’t you played sports before? You should know that it takes a team to beat a team.

    bg, sorry but i will disagree with you on this. One individual can beat a team, I have seen it many times every year. Marshall Faulk, Kim Willoughby, Yuval Katz, Trevor Ruffin, Travis Laboy, Chad Owens, etc. The list goes on, great players that can carry a team, even surrounded by average or below average players. You may disagree with this statement but talent, one player, can make the difference between winning and losing. heather bown, angelica lungquist, deitre collins, robin ah mow. Shoji had been exposed before and outcoached by many, like laurie corbelli a&m, michigan st, etc. Predictable, that is the word to use and outcoached again, yes. Is Steve correct? probably. Is it unclassy for steve to rant about one player, yes. does steve have any class, no. But will steve be vindicated in the future, we will see.

  286. Steve November 24, 2010 7:40 pm


    A player can also cost a team a victory, especially if the player is the setter. A setter who shows up as if she does not care, and looks like she has not been a setter before. Mafua should be ashamed of herself, letting down all the great past setters, and everything they have built up.

  287. Steve November 24, 2010 7:45 pm

    People, I am not the only one that is saying this, even the ESPN announcers mentioned time and again, how terrible the Wahine sets were. And guess who was doing the setting, Mafua.

  288. realist November 24, 2010 7:58 pm


    blame the coach, do not blame the player, it is not her fault for starting.

    shoji has to blame himself for this loss, he got outcoached again. better to lose

    now than later but next year on paper looks better no doubt about that.

  289. al November 24, 2010 8:00 pm

    steve…i’d like to arrange a face to face meeting with you and danny mafua.

  290. Steve November 24, 2010 8:01 pm


    With Uiato doing the setting, and Croson, to take some pressure off of Danielson, I see a National Championship. People, do not forget you say in print here and now.

  291. expat November 24, 2010 8:02 pm

    Meh. The block was missing. Serving was poor. Serve receive was even worse. Digging was so-so but the hustle was no where near Utah State’s.

    Give credit to Utah State. They wanted it more and pulled out one of their program’s biggest wins in years.

    Not the worst thing for the Wahine. This year more than others the WAC season lulled them to sleep. Better that they get woken up now rather than in the regionals. Reading Shoji’s quotations the past few wins it was clear that he was worried about the team’s mental preparation.

  292. diehard fan November 24, 2010 8:06 pm

    Maybe the regular WAC season games were too easy. Better to be in the Big West where they might lose a few games and matches. You get too used to easy matches, so you are not used to tight matches and lose your composure.

  293. realist November 24, 2010 8:10 pm


    I dont know about national championship but i liked what i saw on video of

    croson, all around player must have good mobility, great beach player. maybe when shoji leaves, a ncaa championship will be possible but its been over 20 years? cant live

    in the past. i havent seen uiato play much so no comment.

  294. Steve November 24, 2010 8:17 pm


    You put Robin Ah Mow, and Kamanao together and you get Uiato, that is how good she is.

    Good season, Wahine! You made us all proud of what you were able to accomplish. Win or lose, fans support your efforts 110%.

  298. papajoe2 November 24, 2010 8:30 pm

    Steve, your comments about Dani is making me sick. She is a student athlete trying her best for her school and state. Do you attend the volleyball practices? Do you think coach Shoji and Dani and her teammates want to lose? Even if she has “off” games, like everyone in this or in any sport, she’s probably the best that UH has. I happened to have known Dani’s father, Danny Mafua through business. He’s no small dude. I feel sorry for you for attacking a student athlete who is trying her best for her school and state. Walk in her shoes and how would you do? Have you ever played any sports? Have you ever played competitive volleyball? Were you successful? Were you dominating? If you did play sports, did you always have great games and never had a bad day? Yeah, we may be disappointed that the Wahine lost, but to attack a person like you do, shows what kind of person you are. Maybe you should just keep your personal attacks to yourself or confront Dani yourself. I saw you in person and you don’t look like you could handle her so just cheer on all the athletes and that are trying their best to represent.

  299. Steve November 24, 2010 8:40 pm


    I would not call having a bad game everytime there is a big game, I would call it choking, or being incompetent.

  300. Buffoman November 24, 2010 8:42 pm

    Soooo, I see some are now doubting coach Shoji again. You guys ever coached? Even when the team is really clicking along there are times when the players go flat and no matter what you try, they simply do not and cannot respond. UH looked flat footed, their hitting was bad, their digging was bad, their passing was bad. So, does that make the coach a dog?

    You don’t get to this point by being a dog. Look at coach peterson. He takes BSU to a WAC championship, come to play in the Hawaii Bowl ad the team goes flat. So unlike BSU, you know the “predictable” BSU playing team, the one that “predictably” wins the WAC doing the same thing over and over again. So, after that game does it make Peterson a dog?

    Please folks, team had a bad game, coach could have done better but there are times when it all goes bad. Find another coach who will consistently out coach Shoji with the talent and height he has and do some talking. Please, get real.

  301. RainbowCliff November 24, 2010 8:56 pm

    Steve, you are a TOUGH volleyball fan and have a personal issue against Mafua. I watched the game and saw ALL the ladies were off as Utah State played a GREAT game !

    In sports you can’t keep the record streaks that the wahines were making as it ws a matter of time in which the numbers were going to get caught up against them. Utah State was BLOCKING the net and playing all out as the wahines has been DOMINATE in WAC play and the conference is not strong enough to challenge them until a well prepared Lady Aggie team did just that challenge them and had them ALL off balance and not playing their usal stellar game.

    I hope you are right about Uiato as looking at her stats she is quite slim and IF she has all the comparison as you say to Kamanao and Robin Ah Mow then the wahines are going to be right there in the hunt for volleyball supremacy BUT if she starts making poor sets as you claim Mafua does then I hope you don’t trash her as staying with her through good and bad is what a TRUE UH fan is all about !

    Always remember they are just “student athletes” and they try very hard to WIN for themselves as well as Hawaii. Young and Impressionable while carrying a full academic

    schedule to graduate is not easy and trying to fullfill OUR expectations for them is no picnic in the park as I can assure you they feel WORST for the lost then we do !

    I am just so PROUD of them as first rate ladies as they will go out and represent Hawaii with intelligence, dignity and class as that kind sir is what it is REALLY all about !

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving and keep cheering for our wahines, especially Mafua as she needs your support !

    Buffoman: well put as Shoji is a LEGEND and has done TREMENDOUS with wahine volleyball making them a NATIONAL POWER !

    Wahines got caught up with a well prepared Aggie team who by all accounts got tired of losing to UH time and time again. This was their night as they played with ALL they had as that what it took to FINALLY beat a NATIONAL RANK wahine team for the first time in their history. Ladies and Shoji will go on from this and get ready for the tournament as WIN or LOSE they are a class act and has put Hawaii on the national scene every year they play.

    Coach Shoji is a GREAT coach and we should be PROUD of his accomplishments as he represents Hawaii as one of the FINEST coaches to ever coach volleyball and our saddest day will be when he hangs it up and calls it a career. Mahalo for your LOYAL support !

    re: Mafua

    Steve is right! Every loss is her fault. It’s not like she was the setter for the wahine when they went to the final four or anything.


  308. Doink November 24, 2010 9:30 pm


    Back off of Steve, alright? Steve is entitled to his own opinion. Just like anyone else in here!

    Come on!

    Stevie’s hurting just like everyone else in here. Like most people who can’t handle a loss, Stevie is looking for an outlet to release his frustration!

    Don’t take any of his rant personally. He’s not looking for sympathy. Any confrontation only fuels his blind callous testosterone, phallic engorged rage! What Stevie is looking for is for people to agree with him. Show him some love. He’s hurting.


    The bigger issue here is Stevie’s loneliness. It stems from the fact that he wants more social interaction than what is currently available to him. Sadly, this virtual forum falsely fills his gaping empty void.

    Steve’s loneliness can be traced back to his many life events. The lack of friendship relations during childhood and adolescence, the physical absence of meaningful people around him have caused his loneliness, depression, and involuntary celibacy. At the same time, Steve’s loneliness is a symptom of another social or psychological problem- chronic depression.

    Stevie’s grown comfortable with his semi anonymity in this open chatroom. He can get his opinion out and not suffer the humiliation one would normally get in a face to face public forum.

    With every callous remark, Stevie is reaching out. Steve needs love! Not confrontation. He needs a hug. Stevie yearns for a nice serving of Mimosa Tea and a good back rub, and reassurance that one cares, understands and feel his life long battle with loneliness.

    So back off everyone! Give this lonely man some room to express himself!

    Hello, Steve. I’m listening.

  309. al November 24, 2010 9:30 pm

    so why won’t steve and his bm respond to #289?

  310. A-House November 24, 2010 9:40 pm

    View from the WAC VB tournament:

    Orleans arena is a nice setting – sits around 7,500; seats are so heavenly; so soft – “U” shaped with the open end on the north end – most annoying was the frequent ads that flicker constantly.

    Nearly 99.9% were Hawaii fans which begs the question “what will happen when UH leaves the WAC?”. Surely with the meager fans from New Mexico State and Utah St., how can the WAC economically hold the championship there? For example, if there were more than 50 Utah St fans, we did notsee them in the arena. All these years, Hawaii fans were the economic blood line for the WAC.

    Hawaii fans were of the “older” generation and our “let’s go bows” chant left a lot to be desired. Guess there a lot more “younger” fans at the SSC.

    Missed seeing Brew and Ronnie and her gang as they left early and were on the way back to Th Cal when I spoke with her immediately after the game.

    Freeze warning up again tonight with low in the 29 degree range and high of maybe 42 for tomorrow.

  311. Doink November 24, 2010 9:44 pm

    al- Steve can’t handle reality. Loneliness is tough psychological barrier to overcome. Especially when dealing with it alone.

    Rage on, Steve!!! Let it all hang out! I feel your pain. I’m listening.

  312. Slugger November 24, 2010 10:15 pm

  319. Kazz November 24, 2010 10:31 pm

    On this eve of giving thanks, I would like to give thanks to our RAINBOW WAHINE VOLLEYBALL PROGRAM and ALL involved. From the coaching staff, to our student-athletes that make Hawaii Nei so proud, to their booster club, and to the dedicated fans such as the “volleyball aunties” that show visiting fans what REAL ALOHA is all about.

    The beautiful thing about being a UH fan, booster, etc… is that if you take pride in our student-athletes, you are appreciative of all they do.

    Countless hours in the classroom, library, study halls, weightroom, practice sessions, video sessions, games, and road trips filled with tutoring sessions as well are not done soley for fun. Whether these young men and women realize it or not, they wear “Hawaii” on their uniforms.

    Whether people realize it or not, they represent all of us.

    Speaking as a vocal supporter of softball and an officer of the booster club, I can easily say that I have EQUAL respect for ALL University of Hawai’i student athletes and while as a former student of UH Manoa myself, I, as well as many others, could NOT achieve their level success on both the fields and courts of athletic competition as well as what they accomplish in the classroom all on the same schedule.

    How many countless All WAC Academic Wahine have graced the roster of the volleyball program? How many OLYMPIANS and All-Americans can call themselves Rainbow Wahine???

    They’ve done a lot for the university and the state and continue to do so.

    There is no sense to wallow in pity or target individuals for tonight’s RARE shortcoming.

    Volleyball still lives in Manoa.

    Hawaii = Volleyball.

    The Rainbow Wahine volleyball program is just one of the MANY things we as UH fans/supporters/boosters have to be VERY thankful for. It’s as simple as that.

    I’m pretty sure Shoji isn’t afraid to yank a player out if they are sucking out…I mean you don’t become a coaching legend without knowing when to do these kinds of things.

    Maybe this was Hawaii’s trap game…it happens all the time with all kinds of teams.

    Throw Utah St. a bone, they probably go one and out in the tournament and we will still make it to the final 4.

    Hi, Kazz. I’m trying very hard to get them to upload it online…I’ll definitely let you know when/if they do. I heard Kaia was an absolute hoot and her grandmother was watching live in Australia this morning. I have a bad, 8-second clip of the weather anchor in his first live with the football team just ending practice this morning…it’s funny, but very short. The Aussies sure like their sports.

  331. Kazz November 24, 2010 11:12 pm

  332. Kazz November 24, 2010 11:13 pm


    I’m going to message you on FB.

  333. PowderPuff November 24, 2010 11:16 pm

    Hhhhm, different segments. I saw only one live intro without interview, then a taped interview with Thomas, which was hilarious. Then didn’t stay for Dunnachie and Parnaby, although I did hear producers say the athletes were “brilliant” in their charming accent. They were tripping out at how big the enrollment at UH-Manoa is – apparently college isn’t that big in Australia. And although we don’t have the bloody noses and super rough stuff all the time, they still love American football.

  334. Slugger November 24, 2010 11:17 pm

    Giving thanks to the man that invented the Electric Carving knife, Jerome Murray. The guy made endless inventions that helped our country evolve towards Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All funded on his own private pocket, withOUT the aid of a single goverment dime or entitlement program.

    Steve, you are right about opinion entitlement, But the problem is there is too much entitlements out there available, and your membership to that club is clogging up the system. Opinions are more useful when they are right.

    Good Morning BigHilofan2 !

    Dani Mafua & her GREAT Father are my HEROES !

    Danny got together with Mommy Mafua and CREATED a BEAUTIFUL

    athletic wahine in Dani who plays OUTSTANDING volleyball !

    A BRILLANT young lady who represents the 808 with DIGNITY and CLASS !

    Will graduate with a degree and will go on afterwards to become a professional

    young lady and use her volleyball skills to help future players along the way. VERY

    PROUD of her and her wonderful teammates as they will recover from this unfortunate

    lost and get back to WINNING CHAMPIONSHIP form once again !

    Happy Thanksgiving BigHilofan2 and the WONDERFUL Mafua family as your daughter

    Dani makes us all PROUD of who she TRULY is an AWESOME Rainbow Wahine !

  343. Hilo Moon November 25, 2010 5:40 am


    Rather than meet with Ms. Mafua, I suggest you meet with a psychiatrist. I’m not a athlete, coach, or doctor. Just free advice, so take it for what it’s worth … free.

    CoolEthan: Your points are well taken. Hopefully Steve has had a good night sleep and looked at his HARSH criticism on Miss Mafua and REGRETS his ill words towards her. One

    person does not lose a game as the wahine team lost to a well prepared lady aggie team that played “LIGHTS OUT” volleyball to FINALLY beat them after so many years of losses to them. Utah State coached his girls well and was very HUMBLE of the win. Wahines and Coach Shoji will go on from this and get prepared for the tournament and make us all proud WIN or LOSE on how they play CHAMPIONSHIP volleyball !

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your ohana !

    and deb i spied da HPD sargent… an he wuz spyin me…. he kept lookin…. an den he came ova and den:

    him – “hilo?!”

    bh – “yep.”

    him – “I rememba yu.”

    bh – “I rememba yu 2.”

    him – “boy, you’ve calmed down alot since last year.”

    bh – “yup, I rememba wat i tole yu last year. i told you “do your job…go arrest da coach (while pointing at Coach) for not doing his job…”

    and den you started talking into your microphone, and den da security came down….

    Hilo Moon: That is so funny about the psychiatrist. I tend to go with #308 Doink’s opinion on Steve, reaching out as needing love, attention and affection. I hope on this day he is with someone giving thanks with prayer and sharing a wonderful meal. We all need some form of Devine worship and spiritual prayers for Brother Steve that he will have a blessed day and be filled with lots of good food and HAPPY people to surround him !

    Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING and mahalo for your GREATNESS !

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all the Tsaikos and especially to the Rainbow Wahine VB team.

    To EVERYONE on the team ( coaches and players ), we support you, we admire you, we respect you, and most of all, we love you.

    ALOHA … GO ‘BOWS 1

    #346 bihhilofan2: I just LOVE your pidgen as it really tickles me !

    Putting your foot in the mouth is tough to swallow BUT knowing that

    you have done it is the question in hand. HUMILITY kind sir is what

    we hope Brother Steve can folster in his life and understand the true meaning

    of “to err is human to forgive is devine” as that what we all need is forgiveness

    in our lives as we are not PERFECT and our wahine volleyball team can’t WIN all the

    time !

    Win or Lose I will ALWAYS be PROUD of them as they have CONSISTENTLY put

    Hawaii on the National map and beaten the MAJOR schools with OUTSTANDING

    play !

    They will RISE from this lost and go into the tournament and play with GREATNESS

    as we have been acustom too as thay are GRACIOUS ladies who have carried the State

    of Hawaii on their BACKS for YEARS and make all of us PROUD of who they really are

    MAGNIFICENT wahine student athletes !

    Always and will be very proud of them !

    IMUA WAHINES and their GREAT coach Dave Shoji !

  353. RainbowCliff November 25, 2010 6:12 am

    #350: AMEN Hilo Moon to all of that !

    Simply The Best, Better Then All The Rest !

    Rainbow Wahines For Ever !

  354. RainbowCliff November 25, 2010 6:17 am

    Have a GREAT morning Tsaiko Nation as I am off to play some good tennis, fellowship

    and make my stomach empty for some good turkey !

    Eat well out there and remember to give thanks and prayers for our troops who are

    far away on this WONDERFUL holiday !

    Happy Thanks giving to ALL of you even my Brother Steve !

    Great Morning All!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    A fine day to reflect on all the things in life for which one can be thankful.

    With regards to this blog and its impact on some of us who come here regularly to share all things related to (and many things not) Warrior Football I want to thank Stephen for sustaining this wonderful vessel.

    Thru its existence friendships have formed and most certainly lives have been profoundly altered. Many have oft commented that if not for The Warrior Beat they never would have imagined making so many new friendships so late in life. That these real-world relationships could have been borne from a cyber-world beginning is pretty incredible and a testament to the Aloha that exists, I think, in and around Hawaii football and its fans. I think one would have to search far and wide for another instance of fans on a blog coming together to support, celebrate and sometimes commiserate over their favorite team in real life as the Tsaikos do.

    So again, thanks to Stephen and to those Tsaikos who took that initial step coming from the world of virtual friendships to meet face-to-face that have enabled these many real and lasting friendships to be created.

    Have a terrific day erryboddy!

  362. longboarder November 25, 2010 6:47 am

    Steve, remember you are talking about a student athlete. Aaron Kia could jump a snap, Tank Hopkins may not jump that high and Hiram Thompson might have a few more turnovers. We get mad and we get frustrated. Your words about Dani though really demonstrate that you have bigger demons within yourself.

    There is something about the criticism of a male. But this time around you are criticizing a female. A student athlete that’s a female.

    We are all frustrated and have this “what happened?” thought within us. What you don’t see are the type of words and tone that you speak.

    Be thankful Steve. Be very thankful that you are just antagonizing a few fans. I really hope you don’t piss off the wrong person or family member– you just might end up being a turkey on a table, stuffed with a large shoe up your a$$.

    gobble gobble steve-o steve-o!

  391. Derek November 25, 2010 11:16 am

    If you ask me I think Shoji saw it coming. Utah St. played well and was ready. I think it’s the best thing for UH to lose that game. It brings the team down to earth. Shoji would rather lose this one and win the National Championship instead. The Wahine can now re-focus on what they need to do to get better. There will be no easy teams from now on. The first thing is blocking. We have to block better. Utah St. beat us bad in that area. Second, we have to pass the ball better. And third, we have to serve better. In the long run I think the loss will fuel the team to hopefully win the National Title.

    до чего доросла российская анимация и что мы все-таки что-то можем.

    В планах, насколько я знаю, показать целых 2 анимационных полных метра. Один из них

    сделан по «Мастеру и Маргарите» Булгакова. Думаю, интересно взглянуть какого

    плана получатся фильмы, по Мастеру и Маргарите, на мой взгляд, пока не было

    хорошей визуализации.

    I have the nautilus that has the 5 point harness up to 60 pounds. It is very sturdy and the best carseat we’ve owned. Before that I believe we had an eddie bauer-something. We used graco for the newborn backward facing. You can check the safety features for all different brands online. I’m not sure about the rear facing part. I think if your child reaches a certain height then you have to turn their seat around no matter what brand it is. The childs legs would just get too long!
