Wednesday report

• After acing two physical examinations — the 1-mile run yesterday and agility drills today — running back Daniel Libre was cleared to practice. Libre, who did not play last week because of a high-ankle sprain, will play against Oregon State.
• Running back Leon Wright-Jackson worked out on the sideline today. He has a strained arch. He is expected to play against Oregon State.
• Aaron Kia, who did not play against Weber State because of tendinitis in his knees, practiced as the No. 1 left tackle today. Keith AhSoon, who started at left tackle last week, was back at left guard. The Warriors are prepared to be without Laupepa Letuli, who has a small tear in his left shoulder. Letuli did not compete in team drills today.
• Jovonte Taylor has been slowed by tenderness in his knees. Although he is expected to play this weekend, it could open the way for Malcolm Lane to return kickoffs. Lane had two kick returns for touchdowns last year. Ryan Mouton is the other kick returner.

* * *

Ran into Blaze Soares today. His left foot was in a medical boot. I think he’s figuring on returning, at the latest, for the Fresno State game. There’s a chance he might make it for San Jose State. (That’ll keep Dick Tomey up at night.)

* * *

The biggest hit of today’s practice came when an offensive lineman blocked safety Desmond Thomas, who inadvertently floored head coach Greg McMackin. Princess Leila described it as that familiar movie scene, when a guy is standing in front of a train and, in the next scene, the guy is gone. McMackin, being the tough guy, got up immediately. I think we’re missing Princess Leila’s videos.

* * *

Happy birthday to bighilofan. Whoop. Aaron’s birthday is on the 21st. But it’s never too early to wish Ronnie’s son a happy birthday.

* * *

By the way, the answer to yesterday’s mystery meat question is … guinea pig.

    It is great that Kia was able to practice today…hope that Letuli is fine after the bye week.

  3. Garret September 10, 2008 12:07 pm

    Happy Birthday Aaron!

  4. Garret September 10, 2008 12:09 pm

    I’m glad that Libre and LWJ will be able to play at Oregon State. That makes it interesting to see who wil make the travel roster at RB–my guess is Libre, LWJ, Rego, and Pilares (who is at 2 positions).

  5. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:09 pm

    Top 5…

    I like the news about future games with Oregon St. Hopefully we can help out the tourism with some good “traveling” schools from cold climates!

  8. Garret September 10, 2008 12:12 pm

    This Oregon paper seems to be looking past the UH game.

    Saturday’s home game against Hawaii should help them get in the win column, but with No. 1 USC and a matchup at Utah to follow, the Beavers figure to be 1-4 in early October.

  9. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:12 pm

    Nice to have Kia back and AhSoon move back to LG. AhSoon can move mountains so LWJ, Libre, Rego, Pilares can hit the hole and go. I think now that Rego has shown flashes, Pilares can move back to slot right? Can’t wait to see Jake Heun in action as our big back…

  10. Garret September 10, 2008 12:12 pm

    Freshman tailback Jacquizz Rodgers looked like the real deal after rushing for 99 yards and two touchdowns in the Penn State game. But wasn’t Ryan McCants supposed to the bruising tailback who would fill the shoes of Yvenson Bernard? McCants has eight carries for 19 yards so far.

  11. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:14 pm

    Garret – I think that Oregon paper had a typo…cause I know the Buck Tooth Beaver team is supposed to be 0-5 not 1-4…silly rabbits! 😉

  12. Garret September 10, 2008 12:14 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    With LWJ and Libre not fully healthy, I would think that Pilares might need to be used at RB if they aggravate their injuries. It is nice that Pilares is also a backup slot receiver, so UH has some roster flexibility with a limited travel roster.

  13. Garret September 10, 2008 12:16 pm

    Tyler got a mention here, but this fantasy sports site called him “disreputable”.

    QB Tyler Graunke, Hawaii
    Albeit painful to call attention to, the return of disreputable senior quarterback for the Hawaii Warriors Tyler Graunke in Saturday night’s game against Weber State deserves some degree of recognition. After original starter Inoki Funaki went 7-of-14 for 87 yards in the first half of the Warriors’ first home game of the 2008 season, Hawaii head coach Greg McMackin elected to replace Funaki with Graunke, only to see the senior throw for 218 yards and three touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters. Graunke’s performance allowed Hawaii to avoid a potential loss at the hands of their FCS opponent. Fantasy owners will want to watch closely the news wires at the start of the upcoming week to determine what Graunke’s status will be heading into a Week 3 matchup at Oregon State as the senior showed he has the talent to put up big numbers in the Hawaii passing attack.

  14. Stephen Tsai September 10, 2008 12:17 pm

    Pilares hasn’t taken any reps at slotback this week.

  15. Garret September 10, 2008 12:20 pm

    Another note about RGM. Looks like he’s on the practice roster this week as he needs to learn the offense quickly and try to get on the field. Also note that BC added another WR the same day that they added RGM–RGM has to beat that guy out plus the WRs that are already on the roster and have been playing in the system. I believe he can do it, but he needs to learn fast and be healthy.

    Receivers Ryan Grice-Mullen, from the University of Hawaii, and former Blue Bomber and Alouette O’Neil Wilson joined the Lions Tuesday. Both have been added to the expanded (up to 12 players) practice roster.

  16. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:20 pm

    Garret – Yups…true, I was just saying though with Rego back there Pilares could move back to slot ensuring all injuries are healed of course. Regardless though I would like to see Pilares get more touches he needs to be on the field one way or the other, he’s badarse!

    Eh so I heard that the Underwater LegoLand place sucks. We got some free tickets to go but from the reviews I’ve been hearing I dunno if I like waste my time. Maybe we’ll check it out and just go LegoLand if not good.

  17. mctruck September 10, 2008 12:21 pm

    I used to wonder why USC recruited sooo many rb’s?, with the recent rb injuries at UH recently, I can appreciate having 4-5 rb’s available for every game and then some.
    I like that Rego kid…..tough like Nate.

  18. Garret September 10, 2008 12:22 pm


    Interesting info on Pilares. With the health situation at RB right now, I think that was a good decision. Pilares has the bye week to get back up to speed at slotback, and the bye week is a good time to get the RBs back up to speed after their returns from injury.

  19. mctruck September 10, 2008 12:23 pm

    I hate it when I repeat myself….recent=recently? dahhhh?

  20. bb September 10, 2008 12:23 pm

    With all of the Ching/Cooke field controversy, and bickering back and forth, this is something that I’m sure will bring a smile to some UH fans–pulled off another site.


    Some funny stuff to lighten up the mood a little it seems….

  21. Garret September 10, 2008 12:24 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    I agree with you about the RB situation–my guess is that Pilares will be back practicing at slotback next week.

    I took my family to Sea Life Legoland (we had free tickets) and it was a waste of time. Maybe your boys might like to go once for an hour or less, but after that you will be done with it and probably won’t go back!

  22. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:24 pm

    ST – Thanks for the info, Pilares to me at either RB or WR is a star in the making…

    ST you got any inside scoops on the Australian Monster from Down Under…6’5 310lbs. Jesse Williams…seems like a huge, strong guy at only 17 years old. Scary to see what he could develop into in a few years!

  23. J-Dog September 10, 2008 12:26 pm

    Is Chad Mock still w/the BC Lions?

  24. Garret September 10, 2008 12:27 pm

    The Advertiser’s website has the Washington Post article about wondering if Campbell is a bad fit for the West Coast Offense…if he is a bad fit I hope that Colt gets a shot sometime after midseason.

    Jason Campbell isn’t as bad a mismatch for the West Coast offense as he has seemed so far. Nobody could be.

    But it’s not too early to start wondering whether a 6-foot-5 strong-armed passer, who was drafted by Joe Gibbs to run a maximum-protection, lock-on-one-receiver, rush-to-set-up-the-bomb offense, is fundamentally ill-suited to Jim Zorn’s quick-drop, see-the-field-fast, super-accurate-passing offense. You could hardly design two attacks that required more dissimilar skill sets.

    Campbell, who’s had to learn seven offensive schemes in his college and pro career, faces a huge task. It’s amazing he doesn’t come to the line, call a Gibbs play in an Al Saunders formation with a Zorn snap count, then scream, “I give up.”

  25. Garret September 10, 2008 12:30 pm

    The Oregonian likes the idea of UH playing Oregon State every year.

    Ferd Lewis of the Honolulu Advertiser heard Riley mention yesterday that he would love to play the Rainbows every year, under a home-and-home agreement. … three members of the media suffered pulled hamstrings, leaping to their feet to applaud. … and apparently UH loves the idea, too, because athletic director Jim Donovan said, “it would be great for us, and them, I think.” … I think so, too, although it ain’t so good for OS(U) if Hawaii is really, really good. As in Colt Brennan good.

    Here is Ferd’s story, and I am emailing Donovan this morning to let him know that the Oregon media heartily endorse this idea. (Dude, what kind of a rate can we get at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore? .. OSU surely will stay there again, out of respect for its sister school, Kahuku High).

  26. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:30 pm

    Garret – Yeah I’ve heard, even my other friends were saying it’s nothing special kind of like a museum, cool to look at but gets old quick. Anyway, we might just go since it’s free.

  27. Stephen Tsai September 10, 2008 12:30 pm

    I spoke with Jesse Williams a few days ago. Darn time difference. He was a day ahead, so it was like calling into the future.
    Nice guy.
    I met him last year, when he attended two UH practices. Big guy. No neck. If it’s possible to look strong, well, he looked strong.
    He was lost in the shuffle for a bit. But he’s good to go now. If he doesn’t make it as a d-tackle, he’ll be an offensive guard.

  28. Garret September 10, 2008 12:32 pm

    Article about how badly Oregon State needs to win this game. I knew that Oregon State’s D was young, but it is amazing that ALL 7 of their front 7 on D are first-year starters!

    It hardly seems possible, but two games into the 2008 college football season Oregon State finds itself at the crossroads.

    A loss Saturday to Hawaii would make the Beavers 0-3 for the first time since 1996, with No. 1 USC coming to town Sept. 25.

    Talk about a sense of urgency.

    With seven first-year starters in the front seven, no one expected the Beavers to lead the nation in rushing defense like they did in 2007. But after giving up 239 yards on the ground in Saturday’s 45-14 loss at then-No. 19 Penn State, and 210 yards in a 36-28 defeat at Stanford in the season opener, OSU ranks 110th among 119 Football Bowl Sub-division schools against the run.

    Poor tackling and missed assignments have plagued the Beavers.

    I don’t feel comfortable with this… Sure PAC 10 opponent but they DO NOT need anymore help plucking local talent away from UH via scouting.

  30. Ogre September 10, 2008 12:32 pm

    Occupational hazards of a coach suck. And office workers complain of carpal tunnel as a problem?

  31. Garret September 10, 2008 12:33 pm

    Looks like Oregon State’s punter has been having problems…that could be important for the field position battle.

    Riley plans to stay with punter Johnny Hekker, who is averaging just 28.6 yards on seven punts with one blocked (he also was dropped for a loss while trying to escape the rush against Penn State).

  32. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:33 pm

    That would be good to play a Pac-10 team on a yearly basis. Oregon State is alright but would rather play maybe ASU, Cal, UCLA, or the other Oregon team with ugly uniforms that quacks me up!

  33. Garret September 10, 2008 12:35 pm

    The starting QB for Virginia has the same favorite NFL QB as many people in Hawaii!

    As expected, Virginia quarterback Pete Lalich has a favorite quarterback in the NFL.

    Scratch off Tom Brady and Peyton Manning from the potential candidates.

    “My favorite quarterback is Colt Brennan and I think he should start for the Redskins,” Lalich said with a smile. “I think he is the man. I watched him at Hawaii, and in the preseason he was amazing. I think he only threw a few incompletions. Coach [Jim] Zorn doesn’t like him.”

  34. Stephen Tsai September 10, 2008 12:37 pm

    OSU punter:
    I watched a tape of the OSU-Penn State game. That punter takes a long time to kick. I guess UH fans are spoiled by Jake Ingram’s quick snaps.

  35. Garret September 10, 2008 12:38 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    I’d prefer for UH to play Stanford every year because they don’t recruit in Hawaii much and because they aren’t very good so UH can pound a Pac-10 team every year. Plus, I have friends that live right next to campus so I have a free place to stay for the games!

    I think that most of the Pac-10 teams who are interested in playing in Hawaii are the ones who recruit heavily in Hawaii. That is why I like Stanford as an opponent.

  36. Garret September 10, 2008 12:39 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    The only nice thing about Sea Life Legoland is that it is indoors and air conditioned. Plus, it is junk so there are no lines. So, you can go there in the middle of the day when it is hot and the lines are longest at Legoland, as a nice air-conditioned break.

  37. Garret September 10, 2008 12:41 pm


    UH fans will *really* miss Jake Ingram. I’ve seen first-hand how a bad long snapper can hurt a team. Even last week we could see how punt snap problems really hurt Weber State.

  38. Garret September 10, 2008 12:43 pm

    This article in the Fresno Bee lists 4 BCS buster candidates–the 4 ranked teams (Fresno State, East Carolina, BYU, Utah).

    Should this success continue late into the year, mid-major coaches might find it tougher to cheer for one another.

    And that’s because there can be only one true BCS buster each season.

    The college football system allows just one team from a non-BCS conference a guaranteed bid into a BCS bowl — granted to the team highest in the final BCS standings should multiple non-BCS programs finish in the top 12 (or top 16 and ahead of a BCS conference champion).

    Others would be eligible for a BCS bowl as an at-large selection but likely turned down with bowls preferring a BCS school.

    The Western Athletic Conference discovered tough reality in 2004 when Boise State went undefeated and ended No. 8 in the final BCS standings, but it was an undefeated Utah team that received the automatic BCS bid and played in the Fiesta Bowl.

    Boise State played in the less lucrative AutoZone Liberty Bowl.

  39. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:43 pm

    ST – Nice, hope he got Kangaroo speed to go with his super-size and strength. It’s been awhile since we’ve had some massive DT’s to clog the middle. Would like to see UH go after more big athletic DLineman, although it seems we always end up with barrell chested short guys…The Turtle, Lui Fuga, Fale, Seti, Samuseva, etc…

  40. Rich2176 September 10, 2008 12:44 pm


    Tell your mom I’ll give her Colt’s DVD in Fresno. Which is fitting b/c that’s the first time ST introduced me to Colt.

    Okay, last minute trip….maybe??? What’s the best airport to fly to for Saturday’s game? That is, shortest drive from airport to Stadium. I may fly in Sat. morning and come back to L.A. after the game.

  41. Garret September 10, 2008 12:44 pm

    The Fresno Bee talked about UH.

    Four quarterbacks later, Hawaii’s carousel under center finally might be over with Tyler Graunke back as the starter.

    Graunke came off the bench to throw for 218 yards and three touchdowns in the second half to rally Hawaii to a 36-17 win against Weber State. In the process, he was named the WAC’s offensive player of the week.

    Graunke, who passed for 1,234 yards and 10 touchdowns in 10 games last year as a backup to three-year starter Colt Brennan, had been expected to replace the Heisman Trophy finalist.

    But Graunke missed summer camp because of academic issues and didn’t practice until last week.

    With Hawaii down 17-7 at halftime Saturday to a Football Championship Subdivision team, coach Greg McMackin turned to his most experienced quarterback.

    Hawaii now has used four quarterbacks in two games.

  42. ryan September 10, 2008 12:44 pm

    I really hope Kia starts and we keep Ah Soon at guard.

  43. Garret September 10, 2008 12:45 pm


    You asked about Nevada’s situation today so here is an update.

    Nevada’s loss of starting running back Luke Lippincott to a season-ending knee injury Saturday has forced the Wolf Pack to turn to a player who quit last year.

    Sophomore Vai Taua was listed as the starter for Nevada’s trip to No. 6 Missouri on Saturday. Taua ran for 63 yards on 11 carries last week in Nevada’s 35-19 loss to No. 12 Texas Tech after Lippincott went down in the second quarter.

    A year ago, Taua quit the team midseason, then requested to return and was reinstated two weeks later, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.

    Lippincott tore his left anterior cruciate ligament. He was an All-WAC first-team selection last season when he ran for 1,420 yards and led the conference with 18 total touchdowns.

    “For us, he was a great player and a motivational factor on and off the field,” Nevada coach Chris Ault said. “You don’t replace him.”

    Quarterback Colin Kaepernick led Nevada in rushing last week with 17 carries for 92 yards.

  44. Garret September 10, 2008 12:46 pm

    I found 3 stories about Bess and then I’m out of stories to post. This one is from

    Coach Tony Sparano took offense Wednesday at the suggestion the Dolphins wide receivers had a rough opener against the New York Jets, but it was hard to believe him if you saw the game. But Sparano was right when he pointed out that rookie free agent Davone Bess made the most of his opportunities.

  47. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:50 pm

    Stanford is not bad too, my uncle played football for them and cousin played softball too. Plus my cousin is the assistant softball coach there.

  48. Garret September 10, 2008 12:51 pm

    This one is from the Palm Beach Post. The article is about first-round pick Ginn, but it mentions Bess.

    Against the Jets, Ginn returned three punts for only 13 yards.

    Meanwhile, the Dolphins received better production out of a pair of undrafted receivers.

    Rookie Davone Bess returned a punt 25 yards and a kickoff 21 yards. Third-year pro Greg Camarillo had three catches for 37 yards.

  49. Garret September 10, 2008 12:52 pm

    Speaking about Stanford, the crazy thing about Greg Camarillo who is on the Dolphins is that he was a *walk-on punter* at Stanford. And now he’s in his 3rd year in the NFL at WR!

  50. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 12:53 pm

    Davone Bess will be a starter very soon in Miami. He’s already taken Ginn Jr.’s spot as the punt returner and is there best sure-handed receiver. Ginn Jr. has speed but we all know Davone has hands and quicks!

  51. Garret September 10, 2008 12:54 pm

    Last article I found–this one is from the Associated Press. It is GOOD that Bess is working hard to improve, but kind of sad that he’s the only WR that stayed late to study film with Miami’s QB.

    The season has barely begun for the Miami Dolphins, and quarterback Chad Pennington already knows an open wide receiver can be hard to find.

    The search kept him in the film room past dinnertime last week. The team complex was largely deserted, but Pennington and free-agent rookie receiver Davone Bess were still studying game tapes.

    Hope Coach Mack isn’t injured too, sheesh. Anyway, Blaze needs to make sure he’s 100 million percent good before he plays again. This could be his last year to play and that would be very sad if he can’t get on the field and do what Blaze does and DESTROY all! Everyone knows the demeanor he brings to the football field and how he strikes fear and makes you want to she-she pants like that Boise State running back who got CRUSHED! Get healthy Blaze…

  55. Kazz September 10, 2008 1:01 pm

    Dear Warriors,

    “I guess we took them lightly”… No excuse. Sometimes talent will be overtaken by sheer will.

    You guys will embark on your third challenge of the season in a few days. You’ve been to hell and back at Florida and that is done with and in the books. Oregon State has your number thus far and they came into our house and watched us walk off the field with our heads down.

    The difference this season is that MANY of you know how to win. MANY of you lived survived San Jose State, LaTech, and Nevada from last year. History was on the line last season and this year, respect is the prize to be won. No ring, no shirt, and no cap or trophy is given for that.

    Don’t second guess yourself and just win the day!!!


  56. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 1:02 pm

    I just hope Chad Pennington can give Bess some oppurtunities to work his magic. I’m glad our boys are in the NFL but sucks they are on bad teams with less than stellar QB’s. Ashley Lelie – Oakland, Davone Bess – Miami, C.J. Hawthorne – Buffalo

  57. Jon September 10, 2008 1:04 pm

    Pretty impressive that Davone was the only guy studying with Pennington! That type of work ethic, along with his amazing talent is going to make him a success. Awesome to see him being so hungry, humble and driven!

  58. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 1:06 pm

    Kazz – Howzit just got the jersey in today. Not really enthusiastic about the jersey though as I would expect more from Under Armour. The quality of the replica jersey is really subpar in my opinion. Whoever they got as the designer for UH apparel should be fired. Anyway, I hope they have some authentic ones coming in soon.

  59. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 1:08 pm

    Jon – You got that right, I think Davone understands that although he’s a rookie, he probably will be there best receiver soon. Ginn Jr. is good but not great, we all know how great Davone was and can be.

  60. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 1:11 pm

  61. Kazz September 10, 2008 1:12 pm


    Next year we loose Ingram, Grasso, and Kelly. Farmer was also taking the spot at LS, but he’s a senior too.

    However I think ST mentioned that Ingram’s younger brother will enroll at UH.

    Still those three made a big difference in key situations last season on the FGs and the improved PAT game.

    Yes, service unit plays will be big question mark next season.

    Yeah it’s Nike quality…. hahahahahaha…

    It’s the same quality as the Nike ones last season. Besides, I’ve seen the other UA schools replica jerseys and they are the same.

    However if UA doesnt have authentic ones for the other schools either. Again if they do release them for UH, they will be more expensive than usual even for an authentic jersey due to the tapa and all that.

    That’s how you will succeed, Davone, get on the good side with your starting QB, show dedication and build chemistry, so when you’re in the game, he will be in sync and he will be looking for you, making each other look good.

    bhf2 and Aaron,

    Happiest of Birthdays to the two of you.

  67. bb September 10, 2008 2:32 pm

    I was able to get my hands and handle a true authentic UH UA jersey and the quality is so much more thicker and colors vibrant down to the tapa print. Its too bad that the replicas could not be like the Nike Swingman jersey–at least it has that stitched look.

    Time to moe moe….burp….

  71. B September 10, 2008 2:41 pm

    happy to hear about Bess watching tapes with Pennington. Hard work will pay off like it did for him here.
    now that Tyler stay QB-ing, maybe Pilares should stay at RB,he looks more natural at RB. could move Inoke to slot, he has the legs. Then BR and GA get more reps to be ready.

    Just wanted to remind everyone as well that the TV Gate for the next away game, which will be broadcast at 10:00 a.m., has been scheduled. So, for all you local fans who are not able to join Stretch and his merry band on the road to Corvalis, here are the details:

    UH vs. OSU
    Saturday, September 13, 2008
    10:00 a.m.

    Ige’s Restaurant and 19th Puka
    98-761 Oihana Pl
    Aiea, HI 96701
    (808) 486-3500

    They will open at 9:30 a.m. I will get there a little earlier because they do not take reservations no matter how big your party is. I would appreciate it if a couple people could get there early as well so we can save a big enough area for all who are attending.

    According to Ige’s, they will serve some breakfast stuff, but will have mostly lunch and pupus. It is also being sponsored by Bud Light so I am assuming Bud Light girls will be there and they may have some specials (KK, that’s right up your alley). There will also be a contest for the Ultimate Warrior Fan. Per Ige’s, “Three lucky winners will receive tickets for the 2009 UH vs. UNLV game. The theme is the Ultimate Warrior Fan so come dressed to impress and unleash your inner Ultimate Warrior.” Not sure what that’s all about but I’ll put it out there.

    Anyway, if you plan on coming to the event, please RSVP me at so that we can save enough seats. People are always welcomed to just stop by but it would be good if we had a rough estimate of the number attending so that enough room can be made.

    Also, you can check Steve M’s website for details.

    Just spoke with the OSU quarterback.
    That guy is a super funny.

  74. wafan September 10, 2008 2:59 pm

    Everyone going to the OSU game – – –

    Breakfast will be this Saturday at 8am

    Elmer’s Restaurant
    1411 NE 82nd Avenue
    Portland, 97220
    503 252 8788

    Just off I-5 (South bound) on the West side of the highway. About 10 minutes or so from the PDX hotels.

    Stretch will make a reservation for 20-25. So far I have 17 confirmed. No problem if we go over and we know in advance — we can always raise the number!

    If you were planning to join us there and have not responded to my e-mail please do so at wafan at comcast dotnet. Or, if you are going to the game and did not receive the e-mail please contact me if you are interested in car-pooling and dinner.

  75. Rob25 September 10, 2008 3:00 pm

    Saw this ranking on

    28 Punahou Honolulu HI 3-0 36 @ St. Louis
    Punahou is set to play St. Louis (HI) after a several tune up games including this weeks 42-19 victory.

    Interesting that they are the only school from Hawaii considering the quality of some of the other teams that play against them.

  76. Rich2176 September 10, 2008 3:08 pm

    Rob25 – I just saw that also….and Mater Dei is #26.

  77. Ogre September 10, 2008 3:12 pm

    OSU quarterback if funny? Did he say they’d win or something? HA HA HA HA HA


  78. J-Dog September 10, 2008 3:16 pm

    I was curious to see how things would pan out for the 2 slots that left early. I guess we’ll see who’s still playing in a few years or so. Davone seems to be in the good graces of his Coach and QB. Hope RGM can make it back to the NFL.

  79. Kazz September 10, 2008 3:18 pm


    You own an authentic UH UA jersey? The only ones I ever saw in person up close was at the blog bash on the UA dummies.

  80. (Jesse) James September 10, 2008 3:36 pm

    Funny that people who complain about the quality of replica jerseys make like they actually need it to be game quality….as if they’re actually gonna play a real game. Ah c’mon.

    I like quality authentic jerseys for the simple fact it looks and feels better to wear. Plus I’d rather dish the money out for something I know I will wear with pride and cherish and look good in! I pay for quality not quantity cause I’m a firm believer in “you get what you pay for”. Just to let you know I still play football and in real games too not fake, I promise I not lying, fo reals kine, you like come watch? Ah c’mon!

  82. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 3:39 pm

  84. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 3:46 pm

    Aunty Rob25 and Ronnie…You guys driving up Saturday morning? You going be staying in Fresno and leave Sunday or right after the game. I going probably stay up in Fresno and drive back next day. But sounds like need to get together before the game and pre-flight and den have aftah party when we whip on the Puppies.

    I don’t know if I could ever bring myself to go to a game AT Fresno. It’s hard enough trying to stay in my seat when their fans are “making house” at Aloha Stadium.

  91. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:02 pm

    Kazz – No worry, we going make sure we are represented well in the Puppy Dog Stadium. I know it’s hostile territory but no matter to me, if they like get nawts, we get nawts…chee huu!!!

  95. J-Dog September 10, 2008 4:06 pm

    I wonder if the jersey they presented to boyd gaming at halftime was an authentic UA jersey.

  96. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:06 pm

  102. Rich2176 September 10, 2008 4:23 pm

    PB – I’ll be trekking to Fresno. There’s a 5.5 (1:00 pm – 6:30 pm )hour tailgate prior to the game sponsored by:

    Hawaii Chamber of Commerce of Northern California
    Nâ Koa Football Club
    ‘Ahahui Koa Ânuenue
    UH Alumni Association
    UH Foundation

    Trust me…that group is really easy to find. Send me an email to my name at and I’ll forward the info to you.

    It is an authentic jersey. Its being framed as I type.

  105. Kazz September 10, 2008 4:26 pm


    How did you get one???

  106. Ronnie September 10, 2008 4:26 pm

    Wow, Rich! You get to go to the game this weekend? Lucky!

  107. Kazz September 10, 2008 4:28 pm


    Isn’t this the 3rd time Coach Mack was “taken out” by his own players this season??? 😯

  108. bb September 10, 2008 4:28 pm


    The jersey that was presented to boydgaming was authentic and I was fortunate to see it and feel it on Saturday night. Everything stitched and the material down the sides was different than the front. Very tapered as well. Too bad that the number is “08”….Needless to say, its a nice jersey.

    If I could only find a way to steal it some how….jk

  109. Rich2176 September 10, 2008 4:30 pm

    Ronnie – MAYBE, a big MAYBE. A certain blog host insists I should make a trip up there. Only problem is no ticket. He said “no problem”. I’m supposed to go to a dinner show Sat. night at 7:30 w/ Margo. Let’s see – game at 1, ends around 5, 2.5 hour flight back. I might make it….

  110. Ronnie September 10, 2008 4:32 pm

  114. Kazz September 10, 2008 4:36 pm


    Even the #s were stitched? I have an authentic #15 Nike one and the #s are still screen printed on but with a thicker coat and I’m pretty sure the players’ ones were the same too as I could see the edges of the #s peeling in photos from last season.

    I can’t remember if the #s on the Under Armour ones were stitched though.

  115. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:36 pm

    Kazz – I know what you saying, funny how all the advertisements say in 30-60 days you can look like this…but in reality it’s been how many years and uh…I still no look like Arnold, what da heo?

  116. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:38 pm

    If I was back in Korea I bet you I can get one authenic looking UA jersey with stitching and all garrans. Those people can do some amazing stuff, very industrious and will work wonders if you give em some kala.

    oops. here it is

  124. bb September 10, 2008 4:45 pm


    Numbers are stitched. The “0” and the “8” were of the Nike Swingman type except it seemed a little more thicker. It is very very tapered. And there is definetely a difference of the mesh material on the front/ back and the spandex type material along the sides. It seemed pretty big, something that a lineman would wear. It seems pretty thick and sturdy. Did you see that pic of Mouton from the Florida game in SI where the defender is tearing the jersey?….it has a lot of elasticity as shown in that pic. What is ghetto is that the nameplate that says “BOYD GAMING” was in the thin plastic/vinyl??? lettering like how the custom jerseys were done last year. Im assuming that whenever there is a corporate sponsor for the game and the Athletic Department presents the jersey it will be with the same ghetto nameplate but with a different company name.

  125. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:46 pm

    Sup Hawaiianbod – yeah ST stay on right now…

  126. Mclovin September 10, 2008 4:46 pm

    Pauoa boy, don’t underestimate Stanford. Not too long ago Stanford went to rose bowl. They also kicked Norte Dames okole a couple of times. Stanford was a formidable team in the Pac-10 during Dennis Greens’ and Tyrone Willinghams’ tenure. I remember one year where Stanford beat USC, UCLA, CAL. Yes the Stanford program has its ups and downs. With Jim Harbaugh, they might be on the right track.

  127. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:47 pm

    Rich2176 – Oye haha I geff em sorry lil bit off today…

  128. Hawaiianbod September 10, 2008 4:48 pm

    grrr. here it is.

  129. Rich2176 September 10, 2008 4:51 pm

    LV – I’m thinking either Alaska or Southwest….

    Sorry PB, only someone as dimented as LV would get my poor attempt at a joke so quickly

  130. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:51 pm

    Mclovin – I don’t underestimate anybody…Stanford is alright just never cared for them too much. My uncle played football for them and my cousin played softball and is the assistant softball coach. I’m just saying if we were to schedule a Pac-10 team I’d rather play ASU again, UCLA, Cal, seems like the game would be more exciting playing those teams instead of Stanford. Nothing against them as any Pac-10 team would be good on our schedule every year…

  131. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:54 pm

    Rich2176 – No worries, I had to read um twice to get it sorry had a blonde moment haha…

  132. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:55 pm

    Sounds so stupid when they say Chad Ocho Cinco, WTF what a dumbarse name!

  133. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 4:56 pm

    I dunno Spanish to well but isn’t # 85 Ochenta Cinco anyway???

  134. Jason September 10, 2008 5:01 pm

    I hope Libre isn’t rushing back too quickly. High ankle sprains need to be taken care of especially well.

  135. kama krab September 10, 2008 5:02 pm

    Howzit Everybody,

    Looks like everybody is slowly but surely coming back from there injuries. Hopefully we can start off fast and keep the momentum going and play a complete game.

    Go Warriors.

  136. Rich2176 September 10, 2008 5:03 pm

    LV – May not work. SW only has flights from Bur to Portland. Don’t know how long the drive is to Corvalis(sp?). Alaska flight lands at 12:40 in Eugene but returns at 1:15…hmmmm

  137. Jason September 10, 2008 5:04 pm

    And happy birthday to bighilofan2!

  138. Kazz September 10, 2008 5:06 pm

    Chad “whatshisface” is a moron and an attention w**re. A pityful example of the BAD side of pro athletics.

    However, I heard Rob DeMello quote this nickname for UH’s own Aaron Bain who also wears #85…


    Bain apparently liked it.


  139. NYUH September 10, 2008 5:06 pm

    Glad to see Hawaii youth getting their small town college experience.

    Afalava was held out of the season opener while serving a one-game team suspension after pleading guilty to driving while under the influence of intoxicants and reckless driving after driving his car into a bus shelter and leaving it there Feb. 9 of this year, according to the Gazette Times.

  140. SteveM September 10, 2008 5:10 pm

    Several changes/additions to the Tsai-ko away game plans today. I think I’ve caught up for now…

  141. Kazz September 10, 2008 5:12 pm

    Excuse me, I meant to say that #85 for Cincy in the NFL is a GREAT example of what is WRONG with pro athletes.

  142. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 5:13 pm

    Haha Pocho Cinco…

    Jason – That is a real pain in the arse injury especially for a running back. I agree that he should fully heal before banging heads but like all athletes the desire to play every game is hard to get out of the system. Especially as a Senior, it’s the last year to make something happen and I bet they would all like to leave everything on the field healthy or not. Sucks though as it seems injuries kill us every year…

  143. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 5:14 pm

    ST stay on now gang…

  144. Mclovin September 10, 2008 5:19 pm

    Pauoa Boy,

    sorry i pulled the trigger too fast. Actually my comment about stanford should have been addressed to Garret who said that UH should play Stanford every year because they are “beatable”. As for me I agree with you that UH should rotate and play different Pac-10 teams each year. I’d love to see UH play UCLA or Cal.

  145. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 5:22 pm

    Nice talk about Kealoha Pilares, IMHO I think he’s a dynamic player ala Reggie Bush. Can run the ball and very dangerous in space, but I think he’s better at receiver than running back although he’s very good in the backfield too. Regardless glad he came home to play for us, he’s one of my favorite Warriors to watch play. Wonder if UA will make a Pilares jersey too?

  146. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 5:24 pm

    Mclovin – No worries I know what you meant…

  147. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 5:24 pm

    LMAO haha ST ask your people the Tsai-kos haha…

  148. Pauoa Boy September 10, 2008 5:25 pm

    Sorry listening to 1420 with ST, kind of funny…

    Yes, found the UH-OSU on my TV Sat afternoon and hit record on my DVR. Fox College Sports Pacific. I pay like $3-4 a month for Fox College Sports. Watching a recap of the PSU – OSU game now. Don’t care much for his politics but Murdoch knows about to provide “sport”.

  151. koakane™ September 10, 2008 5:48 pm

    afternoon tsai-ko country. closed shop early so lurking. everyone doing good so far?

    sorry kazz but hafta disagree with you. I would like to see UH play more pac 10 teams betta yet if home and home series. may work both way where da local boys see we just as competitive and stay home plus we get looked as by some coastal state talents and dey may want to come UH. also nice oratory speech to da warriors. 😀

    pboy I think kpilares better used as rb. so far as a slot back we are wasting him. he gets more touches and give offense a better option.

    bhf2 on your bday ….. glasses up and okole maluna

    hey kama got the pic sent to you?

  152. bighilofan2 September 10, 2008 6:01 pm

    Howzit errybody!

    AHouse, we going make dat tasteful bannah fo sure.

    SADOWSKI help.
    No make trouble!

    I like da idea of petitions going around da stadium at a couple games, starting 9/27. that is a great great idea. tasteful kine, anykine, the idea is to avoid the 5 year wait, and the only way to do that is to keep the pressure on so that all the decision makers realize that Dennis Sadowski’s actions are hurting UH athletics. And yes, I respect his right to breathe my air!

    Go Warriors!

  153. d1島: September 10, 2008 6:04 pm

  156. bighilofan2 September 10, 2008 6:11 pm

    I 100% agree UH and OSU should have a home and home series starting right now. UH cannot nor should not try fo recruit errybody here. If can, can, if no can, no worries! OSU would be good fun, Hawaiian flies Portland. Plenny Hawaii kids go school all ova Oregon. Plus, great fo make smoke salmon connections. 😀 If wuz me, I’d go for it! I wuz planning fo go, the airfares not too too too bad, can make connections. 😀

    plus, we can grind on da beaver! 😆

  157. Kazz September 10, 2008 6:12 pm


    I no doubt that having OSU on the schedule on a regular basis will only make UH bettah.

    But me being me, and I’m shua you feel the same way in a sense… “WE MUST PROTECT THIS HOUSE!!!”.

    My cynical side is telling me OSU only wants the ability to steal more local talent away from UH and this I am disgusted with, but don’t get me wrong, I am NOT against local sons and daughters going for what is best for them, but sometimes the lure of “fame and fortune” in the “Conference of Champions” sometimes is NOT all that it’s advertised and vice-versa of course.

    So I am all for PAC-10 relationships, but I QUESTION the PAC-10’s motivation.

    Hey, more power to them for wanting to recruit the BEST (in Hawaii obviously), but it reeks of “manifest destiny”. 😆

  158. Kazz September 10, 2008 6:15 pm

    In any case, if OSU wants to risk their chances at a TOP 25 ranking by playing UH on a regular basis then…. BRING IT!!!

  159. bighilofan2 September 10, 2008 6:17 pm

    Lets face it,

    Sadowski not going quit.
    He going stick to his right to contest
    contest contest. and den contest samoa.

    which means da field not going get fixed.
    which means I going keep making plenny
    plenny plenny noise until da general public
    gets tired of Sadowski contesting and
    contesting and contesting and

    so my idea about the PUBLIC DOING

    AS CO-HA, with their 15 emloyees and being
    a single family dwelling homebuilder,
    he is doing this as a individual.

OSU would be good fun, Hawaiian flies Portland. Plenny Hawaii kids go school all ova Oregon. Plus, great fo make smoke salmon connections. If wuz me, I’d go for it! I wuz planning fo go, the airfares not too too too bad, can make connections.

    plus, we can grind on da beaver!

    An OSU alum once told me, “Real men prefer beavers”!!!

    I retorted, “BIGGER men POUND ‘EM!!!”.

    to be a national power we gotta play good teams.
    every year OSU plays good teams so playing them helps us build our crediiblity! they’re close, get public transportation close by, helps with our costs. they want us. we want them. i say Jimmy D, make the call! we think we can lick them, they think they can lick us, so its a fair fight. thats what we looking for, a fair fight. of course, they not going think we is for fair after Saturday. you betta get on it befo da game, Jimmy D. day going change their mine afta da game. 😀

    Go Warriors!

  164. koakane™ September 10, 2008 6:31 pm


    In any case, if OSU wants to risk their chances at a TOP 25 ranking by playing UH on a regular basis then…. BRING IT!!!

    das my reason for playing home and home with pac 1 puka teams. warriors can beat some of dem and more local talent will not leave to look for greener grass. like bhf2 said if dey go best wishes but if dey stay like you say moa betta protected hale. so how yu’s figga?

    A little off-topic, but somewhat relevant:

    I just got an email from Terry Brennan. I’m planning on playing golf with him, Vince Ferragamo, and Ray Carrasco (golf pro/British Masters Champion/Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open Champ) from an auction bid I won at Vince’s tournament. I had called Terry, and he said he knew both of them…small world…Vince used to work with Colt, and Terry said Ray has been a family friend for years. And the reason Margo thought of Terry (yeah, right, like I could figure this out) is because they are all in the South Bay.

    But, here’s the incredible part of the email. He said he and Betsy are traveling to Hawaii for the Sept. 25(?) San Jose State game. I wonder what the back story for that trip is??? TSAI-MEISTER, a little investigative reporting, sir???

  169. wafan September 10, 2008 6:42 pm

    Happy birthday Aaron and bhf2 (da man).

    Is Sadowski betting that the people of Hawai’i are that clueless so as to over look another slick and self-indulgent human? Can he truly be that greedy/clueless/heartless/self-centered/shifty/…

    Actually my comment about stanford should have been addressed to Garret who said that UH should play Stanford every year because they are “beatable”. As for me I agree with you that UH should rotate and play different Pac-10 teams each year. I’d love to see UH play UCLA or Cal.


    Trust me, I follow Stanford football and know about the successes you mentioned in the previous post–I grad from there and went to a number of games, and several of my friends have gone to every game for decades. If you look back at my post, I emphasized that Stanford would be my choice because they are a Pac-10 team that does *not* recruit in Hawaii, which would mean that UH would get the benefit of playing a Pac-10 team while avoiding giving a Pac-10 team like Oregon State the big recruiting advantage of regular games in Hawaii to sell to recruits.

    I emphasized the recruiting aspect, even mentioned it twice. I did say that Stanford is “beatable”, and is there any argument about that? UH could beat Stanford this season and I believe that Mack will improve UH faster than Harbaugh will improve Stanford–Harbaugh has some limitations in recruiting due to having less “special admissions” than Cal and other Pac-10 schools (see the article I posted in the past day that gave the real numbers for this). I cannot imagine a year in the next 5+ years where Stanford wouldn’t be “beatable” for UH…that doesn’t mean that UH would win every game, but that UH would have a good chance to win each game.

    Hurricane Ike is shifting games around in Texas. I hope that Houston, Austin, and all of the rest of Texas aren’t hit badly by the hurricane!

    Hurricane Ike has already impacted the college football schedule, two days before its projected Saturday landfall between Corpus Christi and Galveston.

    Texas announced Wednesday night that it had postponed its Saturday nonconference game with Arkansas. The game was rescheduled for Sept. 27, which had been an off week for both teams.

    Even before Texas’ announcement, TCU had altered its start time for Saturday’s home game with Stanford from 6 p.m. to noon. And Houston moved its home game with Air Force to SMU’s Ford Stadium at 2:30 p.m.

    Baylor remains scheduled to host Washington State beginning at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

    School officials were closely following forecasts for Hurricane Ike, with a decision not expected until this afternoon at the earliest. Baylor and Washington State do not share any common weekends off, which would complicate rescheduling.

    The latest track has Ike making landfall as a Category 3 hurricane. Several models have Ike moving east of Austin as a tropical storm and then continuing toward the Dallas area, bringing heavy rain.

  191. Garret September 10, 2008 8:38 pm

    Heisman Pundit shows that Tebow is no longer the favorite among the Heisman voters it polls.

    For the first time this season, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is not the favorite to repeat as Heisman Trophy winner, according to the Sentinel Heisman Poll.

    Tebow, the leader in the preseason and Week 1 in the weekly poll of 10 Heisman voters, slipped to No. 2 behind Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel.

    Other developments: East Carolina’s 2-0 start in which the Pirates beat two teams that played in BCS bowls last year has made a Heisman candidate of QB Pat Pinkney, according to our voters. Meanwhile, West Virginia quarterback Pat White has some work to do after his team was beaten by ECU.

    The Bottom 10 for College Football. Oregon State is listed at #3, with its next loss coming from Uh.

    UCLA (1-0) was ranked No. 23 in the Associated Press poll after upsetting Tennessee, then had a bye last week and fell to No. 26. An unimpressive bye? Come on, AP voters, leave the jokes to the Bottom Ten.

  194. Garret September 10, 2008 8:41 pm

    The bottom 10 for the NFL.

    Now the Bay Area knows how L.A. feels — neither has a pro football team.

    The Raiders, living up to their revised “Commitment to Self-Destruction” motto, fell 14-41 to Denver, their sixth straight season-opening loss. And Raiders fans were in mid-season form. Forty-five were arrested for unruly behavior.

    Meanwhile, the 49ers were bolstered by the signing of ex-St. Louis Lambs receiver Isaac Bruce, who predicted that his new team would score 56 points a game in the Mike Martz offense. The 49ers scored 13 against the very average Arizona Cardinals — and Bruce didn’t catch a pass.

  195. Garret September 10, 2008 8:42 pm

    In San Diego, Dante Rosario made a last-second touchdown catch to give Carolina a 26-24 win over the Chargers — and was identified in a Fox Sports graphic as Rosario Dawson. She is an actress. Then, again, she’s 5 feet 8. Maybe the Chargers should sign her as a cornerback.

  196. Garret September 10, 2008 8:45 pm

    It is always interesting to me to see what schools have produced the most NFL players. It is amazing to me that Miami has 4 TEs in the NFL and Georgia has NINE DEs in the NFL…we saw first-hand one of those DEs. La Tech is tied for the most kickers in the NFL (2). UH has Elam, McBriar, and soon Dan Kelly.

    The top 10 most-represented schools in the league:

    1. Miami — 44
    2. Florida State — 37
    3. Georgia — 36
    4. Michigan — 36
    5. Ohio State — 36
    6. LSU — 35
    7. Tennessee — 34
    8. Texas — 34
    9. USC — 32
    10. Florida — 30

  197. Garret September 10, 2008 8:46 pm

    It looks like Bess is already known in Miami for the yards he can make after the catch.

    Davone Bess, a rookie, is the shifty run-after-catch option who’s supposed to be hard to bring down.

  198. Garret September 10, 2008 8:47 pm

    The Sun-Sentinel wrote about the Bess vs. Ginn debate for returner.

    Ted Ginn, Jr. is exceptionally fast.

    Once he gets going, and starts sprinting in a straight line, he can outrun anyone.

    He has not shown (at this level) that he is especially quick or elusive, however.

    And so, even after his punt return touchdown in the preseason, it is reasonable to wonder whether he will ever be an elite punt returner in the NFL. Certainly, the Dolphins seem to be wondering. Again today, Tony Sparano reaffirmed his intention to get Davone Bess some work as a punt returner. Sparano really likes Bess.

    “I think Bess has an opportunity to make a guy miss right away,” Sparano said.

    This regime didn’t draft Ginn.

    It signed Bess as an undrafted free agent. That’s where a lot of teams find their punt and kick returners — on the street. Ginn cost the Dolphins much more.

    If Ginn isn’t returning all of the kicks, then the pressure increases on him to become a true No. 1 receiver by his third season in order to justify his draft position and salary cap slot.

    Also, while Sparano’s selection of Bess makes some sense on punt returns, it makes less on kickoff returns. Again, Ginn has blazing speed once he gets going, and he has more time to get going on a kickoff. It’s more important to have the elusive guy returning punts.

  199. Garret September 10, 2008 8:50 pm

    The Palm Beach Post has a great article about Bess! I would love to post the whole thing, but that wouldn’t be fair to the paper and would take a lot of space on the blog. Here are some key excerpts:

    Funny how Bess returned one kick and scared the heck out of the Jets so they squib kicked away from him the rest of the game!

    Bess, 5-feet-10 and 190 pounds from Oakland, Calif. and the Univ. of Hawaii, was back deep for all kickoffs against the Jets. He replaced Ginn, who was drafted No. 9 overall in 2007 by the previous regime largely because of his return abilities.

    Bess ran back the opening kick 21 yards, to the 27. The Jets had seen enough, because the Jets’ collection of kickers squib kicked away from him the rest of the game.

  200. Garret September 10, 2008 8:51 pm

    Then, Bess did a great job on his first punt return in a regular-season NFL game.

    About 5 minutes into the first quarter, again it was Bess, not Ginn, who trotted out to field Ben Graham’s punt.

    Bess caught the punt at the 5 yard line, committing a cardinal sin for a punt returner: Never catch the ball inside the 10. But Bess weaved his way in and out of the Jets defenders, and ran his first NFL punt back to the 30. He was one diving tackle away from breaking it open, possibly for 6.

    “First punt to the guy, he made a guy miss,” Sparano said Wednesday. “I mean, the guy should have made the tackle. Once he makes him miss, it’s a 23-yard gain. He’s a strong kid that has the ability to make somebody miss.”

  201. Garret September 10, 2008 8:52 pm

    Then, Bess made a nice run after the catch to make a first down.

    At the end of the first quarter, Bess caught an 8-yard pass on second-and-8, stretching just far enough to get the first down. Six plays later, the Dolphins scored their first touchdown of the season.

    “He caught the ball, he put his foot in the ground and he ran vertical, okay?” Sparano said. “And he got as many yards as he could out of the play. I think it was an 8-yard gain. But he caught the ball, turn, and ran it right up the field and got the first down on the play. So, I mean, when I see a young guy do those kinds of things like that, that impresses me.”

  202. Garret September 10, 2008 8:53 pm

    Bess is apparently known for putting in the extra time to make himself better.

    One reason why Bess is endearing himself to his coaches: He is enrolled at Chad Pennington University, joining the quarterback at his renowned late-night study sessions.

    “I know at one point, (Pennington) and Davone Bess were tied up in a room down here by themselves,” Sparano mentioned Wednesday. “That’s valuable for Bess.”

  203. Garret September 10, 2008 8:53 pm

    Okay, I’m done with the Bess spam now…

  204. OldDiver September 10, 2008 9:10 pm

    If you believe the recruiting star rating’s you will find Stanford University out recruits Hawaii. Stanford’s athletic department revenues in the Pac-10 are second only to USC. Stanford may be in the bottom half of the Pac-10 but as we saw with Washington last year no Pac-10 team is a pushover. Would be great if we could schedule them but I would say the same for any Pac-10 team.

  205. OldDiver September 10, 2008 9:14 pm

    Wow, last week Chrome had 0.7% of the browser market share, but for some reason IE lost 1.4% of their browser market share. The other 0.7% went to Firefox and Safari. That implies that basically ALL of Chrome’s market share was taken from IE and the introduction of Chrome somehow also boosted IE’s other competitors.

    A similar post was in the previous blog at 11:29 am today:.

    RE Ching/Cooke Field issues:

    There are clear state laws and administrative rules on the books dealing with challenges to contracts.

    Here is what has happened so far:

    The University of Hawai`i’s Procurement office issued an Invitation For Bids on July 1, 2008, the same day that FY 2008-2009 funds appropriated from the Legislature for the Field’s fix could be released. In fact, the Procurement Office had been working on the document several weeks prior to issuing it because the project was considered to be of the highest priority by the UH-M administration.

    Because of a number of inquiries concerning particular items in the IFB, the Procurement Office extended the bid deadline to Friday, July 25.

    That day, four bids were opened – I was present in the room – and the winning bid was $862,881 (RMY/Sports Turf Hawaii) and the second lowest bid was $$883,563 (CO-HA/Applied Sports Technology). The other two bids were over $1 million.

    The Procurement Office in consultation with the Facilities Office then evaluated the winning bid and found that it met the qualifications as specified in the IFB. The University announced the contract had been awarded to the lowest bidder on Wednesday, August 13.

    That triggered a seven-day challenge period starting Thursday, August 14, for all of the other bidders. Two challenges were filed by close-of-business on Wednesday, August 20, by CO-HA and the “fourth-lowest bidder,” Ching’s Nursery, Inc./Service Contracting.

    I then attended the University BOR’s meeting on Friday, August 22, at Windward Community College and received permission to address the BOR briefly on a non-apenda item. I asked them to stand firm behind the University of Hawai`i at Manoa on this matter and to do the right thing. Both Darolyn Lendio, UH’s General Counsel, and Virginia Hinshaw spoke after me and answered the Regents’ questions. Although nothing could be done because the item had not been properly noticed under state Sunshine Laws, the Regents did get an update on the issues.

    By the end of August, the University rejected the appeals and upheld the contract award. It was at this point that the two losing bidders then filed two separate appeals with the Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs.

    Also by the end of August, the Governor had released the funds for the project to the University of Hawai`i. Although I cannot vouch for this first-hand, I assume that the check went into UH’s Capital Account and it cleared with no problems. It should be earning a bit of interest while waiting for matters to be resolved.

    The first DCCA hearing is 9 am, Friday, September 26, with Ching’s Nursery. The second DCCA hearing is 1:30 pm, Wednesday, October 8, with CO-HA. The University of Hawai`i is the second party in each case, not RMY.

    Supporting documents by both parties in both hearings will be available for public inspection prior to the two hearings. I’ve left a message for the Hearings Officer to let me know when the documents will be available.

    Tom Mui and I will also be looking at the initial paperwork filed for the two DCCA preliminary appeal hearings held on September 9 and will report back here with what forms the substance of the two hearings on September 26 and October 8.

    Like it or not, the laws and administrative rules must be followed – and BHF2 is right – as long as an appeal is filed prior to the close of business on the specified date, then it’s good-2-go.

    HERE’S MY TAKE: There is nothing whatsoever to suggest that the University of Hawai`i – whether talking about the Chancellor and her subordinates, the President, or the Board of Regents – has in any way done anything to hinder, impede, show favoritism, or slow down the process. UH moved the bid through about as fast as it could have – and if there’d been no challenge, I suspect that the blessing ceremony would be in the planning process tor an end-of-September date.

    Yes, Sadowski was nominated by Lingle but he, along with hundreds of others sitting on boards & commissions throughout the state – including my professional colleagues for whom I testified at their hearings – was confirmed by the State Senate overwhelmingly dominated by the Democrats.

    PETITIONS, ETC: A well-worded petition supporting the University’s decison without any reference to losing bidders should be drafted and generated to be submitted to the Board of Regents at its next meeting on September 19 at Hawai‘i Community College.

    Please do NOT call the Hearings Officer per Tom Mui’s request yesterday.

    Tom is also making an inquiry to the Regents’ Executive Secretary as to how to make sure the item is on their September 19 Agenda.

    Remember, Sadowski is acting as a private individual on behalf of his private business in this matter and NOT as a member of the Contractors License Board.

    I know the frustration about these issues, but the laws & rules & regulations are there to protect us. Surely no one wants to go back to the days when contracts for public projects were awarded on the basis of friendships with decision-makers and not on their qualifications to perform the work.

    The only way to fast-track the project itself is for the University to give in and award the contract to CO-HA. But what message does that send to students, staff & faculty, and the larger community?

    Can Sadowski be shamed into backing off? That’s what BHF2 wants to do. Will it work? Beats me – but it won’t hurt to try as long as we don’t get physical or subject ourselves to slander/libel charges.

    BHF2’s suggestion at #152 and #159 about passing around a petition at the next couple of ballgames may work. I will check with Scott Chan, the Stadium Manager, to see if volunteers can walk around the parking lot before the game soliciting signatures. However, this will take about a dozen volunteers working the crowd between 2 and 5 pm.

    We also need to set up a table on campus to collect signatures as well.

    A dedicated website for gathering signatures on-line should also be a priority. Any volunteers to help with this? Suggested domain names? Am working on a couple of election-related websites and have some expertise in the area of on-line signatures, but more people taking part in the drive to get the Ching/Cooke Field fixed in a timely fashion makes it easier to be successful. Two or three people cannot do everything.

    The banner should have the domain name & address on it so people who who want more information can get it and sign the petition as well.

    Any ideas out there as to what else needs to be done?

    I agree that Stanford wouldn’t be a pushover–no Pac-10 team, with their resources and facilities, will be down forever. But they don’t recruit much in Hawaii and I can’t imagine UH would be overwhelmed against them. UH also has been getting a lot of recruits from the Bay Area, so a home-and-home with Stanford (or Cal) could really get that pipeline to flow.

    Saint Louis School in Honolulu: Only the football field, the field house, the gym and ellipse are available on Google.

    Er, I can see Saint Louis School fine. What am I missing here? 😀

  222. J September 10, 2008 10:06 pm

    Maybe the compiler wasn’t patient. Saint Lous showed up on google maps for me…but it took a little time loading, at first I only saw a few white squares and the football field…

  223. Jason September 10, 2008 10:09 pm

    Cause otherwise, this means there are dangerous secrets to be revealed about Saint Louis. Ooh, I want to hear the scoops from Bulla and d1shima! 😉

  227. Hawaiiroller September 10, 2008 10:48 pm

    Thanks for your great spam Garret. 🙂

    I agree too that Stanford would be a better fit for an ongoing home and home series. I don’t want to give OSU coaches more help in recruiting here. “Be a beaver and you get a free trip home (Hawaii) every other year to play in front of your friends and family.”

    Keep up the hard work Davone.

    Thanks for clarification on your comments. Also there is a huge stanford contingent in Hawaii and many will attend games. Yes Stanford is always beatable, but personally playing stanford every year may excite the Stanford Fans in Hawaii, but the rest will get bored. I prefer a rotation of different Pac-10 teams each year.

  245. Mclovin September 11, 2008 9:34 am

    re: Big Macs.

    Garret, i read an article on the web about a college football player whose diet consisted mostly of fast food burgers. He said he ate fast food crap during youth and highschool and never had any problems. He was a little concerned about his diet when going to play ball in college but it still worked for him. Then he got drafted by the NFL and thought he may have to change his diet, but since then hes still swears by his junk food diet and doing well. Sorry I don’t remember his name but I’m sure you can track it down by googling NFL play fastfood or something like that
