Hey, gang, this is the Warrior Beat’s new home.

I hope all have made it over.

There will be an adjustment.

But once I locate the “bold” and “italic” buttons, and figure out if saying “Warrior Beat” is third- or fourth-person tense, things will be to normal.

Thanks for (re-)joining the Warrior Beat.

* * * * *

The veteran Warrior players join training camp today.

First practice is 2:15 p.m. tomorrow.


  1. truegreen August 3, 2014 7:02 pm

    First on this new one? Or am I lost by myself in a parallel universe?

  2. Chris Turner August 3, 2014 7:03 pm

    The site looks good, Stephen!

    Excited to see all the news coming in the next month!

  3. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 7:05 pm

    True Green:
    I’m old, so I’m not very good with change. This should be interesting.

  4. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 7:08 pm

    OK, first adjustment will be the numbers.
    How the heck will I know if I’m in the top 10?

  5. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 7:08 pm

    Then, of course, why are my comments highlighted? I feel like the libero.

  6. kapakahi August 3, 2014 7:09 pm


    No mention of Shirley?

  7. whitey August 3, 2014 7:11 pm

    congrats on moving day

  8. tom-warriornation August 3, 2014 7:12 pm

    ST: do any defensive linemen or linebackers wear knee braces? Or do you know if any of them is wanting one; seems like the DL would need them just as the OL.

  9. whitey August 3, 2014 7:14 pm

    st you look good in color

  10. tom-warriornation August 3, 2014 7:14 pm

    Congrats to boya_jr on his first baby–another Warrior fan has arrived!

  11. djmitcho August 3, 2014 7:15 pm

    Found my way here….

  12. Boya_jr August 3, 2014 7:19 pm

    Thanks Tom! Another Warrior fan has arrived indeed : )

    I’m liking the potential for this new site. Cheers all around!

  13. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 7:19 pm

    I have not heard how much progress, if any, there has been since the early talks between Shirley and UH. I think there’s scholarship room for three or four, but I’m not sure how much can be used as initials. I think initials can be forwarded to the next recruiting class either during or after training camp.

  14. Coloma_Ohana August 3, 2014 7:19 pm

    Howzit and good morning! Love the new home!

  15. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 7:21 pm

    If there are any problems posting, it might be because the site does not recognize your e-mail. E-mail me at stsai@staradvertiser.com and I’ll get the hold lifted. OK, I’ll try to get the hold lifted.

  16. oneseason August 3, 2014 7:23 pm

    Since the Rainbow isn’t in the website title, but the University of Hawaii teams are the Rainbow Warriors and Rainbow Wahine, it would be good to add a rainbow graphic to the webpage banner. Nothing wrong with a little color too; the old football uniform with the rainbow looks good in the photo.

  17. wafan August 3, 2014 7:26 pm

    Top something or other!

    Aloha to the old and to the new places . . .

  18. truegreen August 3, 2014 7:26 pm

    Awesome thanks! I’m liking this reply feature too!

  19. Old School Dave August 3, 2014 7:28 pm

    Hey Stephen, congrats on the new digs.

    Hope the team has a productive and injury-free camp.

  20. truegreen August 3, 2014 7:29 pm

    Hmmm…the time seems to be on Greenwich Time too…or would that be true-greenwich time?

    Good morning all.

  24. wafan August 3, 2014 7:33 pm

    Can the avatar be changed? Is it supposed to be a snowman, sun/moon rise/set over a mountain, reflection of the sun/moon on the water surface, or two mochi?

  25. RB August 3, 2014 7:34 pm

    I like the new site but it seems the fonts is a little smaller. Where are my glasses? LOL

  26. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 7:35 pm

    Interesting looking….

  27. kev-1 August 3, 2014 7:37 pm

    Is today the start of training camp for us guys on the Warrior Beat? Or is it just “move in” day?

    Either way, I am glad to still have access to the insights of both ST and many of the wise posters on this site.

    So excited for football.

  28. oneseason August 3, 2014 7:37 pm

    How about adding a little rainbow to the Hawaii Warrior World banner? Nothing wrong with a little color, and more representative of team names.

  29. Pomai August 3, 2014 7:38 pm

    wafan your saying your a snowman!!! I always knew you were kind of cold……

  30. jm2375 August 3, 2014 7:38 pm

    Howzit Tsaikos!

    Congrats on the new website. Kinda sorta looks the original website.

    Welcome to the Warriors to the start of training camp.

  31. kev-1 August 3, 2014 7:39 pm

    BTW . . . ST, since it seems that you chose green for the color of your posts, can we choose colors for ours?

    I want blue please.

  32. Lurker#8 August 3, 2014 7:39 pm

    Congratulations ST!
    I like the reply too.

  33. Pomai August 3, 2014 7:39 pm

  34. Haleakala August 3, 2014 7:40 pm

    Found it and had to change my bookmark.
    The fonts are smaller. I had to enlarge the screen to read it more easily.

  35. markazulu August 3, 2014 7:40 pm

    a new era begins in warrior beat history.

  36. kev-1 August 3, 2014 7:41 pm

    Wait a minute! Oneseason, you are right. Shouldn’t this site be called “Rainbow Warrior World?” People with posters and megaphones may show up at the SA offices on Monday.

  37. Pomai August 3, 2014 7:41 pm

    Now this seems to be a problem with different browsers his show up light blue on my screen

  38. Wes'side Warrior August 3, 2014 7:43 pm

    Aloha, Gang!

    Wow! Look at all da shiny, new STuffeses! So nice!

    And… can reply directly to other posts now… smoothe! (Yup, with an “e”. Short story… 5th grade spelling bee at Mauka Lani, and I misspelled it because I didn’t put da “e” on da end. I should have asked for definition, sentence, etc. Oh well.)

    Have a great day, everyone!

  39. kev-1 August 3, 2014 7:44 pm

    So on a formatting note . . .

    If you “leave a comment” you will resume your reading at the bottom of the posts. If you want to follow how people “reply” to specific poster’s comments, you need to scroll back to that post. This will make it harder to follow arguments between posters.

  40. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 7:45 pm

    Okay.. I set up an avatar.. let’s see if it works.

  41. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 7:45 pm

    I guess not.

  42. jm2375 August 3, 2014 7:46 pm

    We’re seeing the pic, MIH. Nice pic.

  51. kev-1 August 3, 2014 7:53 pm

    It might be light blue. I may be a bit color deficient. I’ll take red then.

  70. ManuOKeKai August 3, 2014 9:15 pm

    Been a lurker for years….always enjoyed the dialog. I figured with the new blog getting started I would make the plunge and participate when I can. Aloha mai Kakou, Imua Rainbow Warriors.

  71. Tofuzuke August 3, 2014 9:15 pm

    “Warriors come out to play……….”
    Fall Camp in the Dance Studio, great bonding time, only in Hawaii, wouldn’t want it any other way! Just like going Aunty’s hse, grab one blanket fine a place to go moimoi. All da boys pumped and ready; video games, dancing, singing, da melting pot begins. Work hard, represent your State w/ pride and aloha can’t wait to see u on da field! Have a great season team!!

  72. Brand T August 3, 2014 9:16 pm

    Doesn’t it seem like every pic Coach Pete is in looks like he having a hard time in “transit ”
    Anyway nice digs!

  73. BigFan August 3, 2014 9:17 pm

    Just testing the new site. Hope they make the fonts a little larger though not a big issue since you can enlarge the screen.

  74. al August 3, 2014 9:17 pm

    i visited this new site last night. but, didn’t bother to post.
    cool changes.

    still hard to discover the “warrior beat”.
    oh well.

  76. Da Punchbowl Kid August 3, 2014 9:18 pm

    Good Morning Gangeez! πŸ˜‰

    Like the fancy new place, here, Stephen! Howdy to everybody on this auspicious occasion.


  77. BigFan August 3, 2014 9:20 pm

    MIH, is that site used for all sites to do work on avatars?

  78. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 11:22 am

    Good point al,
    no numbers.

  79. BigFan August 3, 2014 11:27 am

    The reply feature is similar to the scout board but the problem is unless you keep going back to read previous posts, you may not see the replies. When most people leave the blog and return later, they pick up where they left off. Now, you will need to keep going back to read replies.

  80. DoubleB August 3, 2014 11:28 am

    Nice! πŸ™‚

  81. NorthShoreFan August 3, 2014 11:31 am

    Guud Morning Tsaikos…bootiful day.

    historic day….new format…change is inevitable…one Warrior leaves, another come into da hale….IMUA WARRIORS!

  82. Wes'side Warrior August 3, 2014 11:31 am

    No numbers? Uh oh… might get lost!

    And if numbers can be added… will responses to previous posts get their own numbers? Or will only original posts get numbers? Are numbers really this important? I mean… it’ll all be in the red soon enough anyways… no?

  83. BigFan August 3, 2014 11:31 am

    Yeah, with no numbers, you will need to keep track of time to re-enter the blog where you left off unless you want to start over and read all replies as I mentioned in my previous post.

  84. Wes'side Warrior August 3, 2014 11:32 am

    Maybe new responses to previous posts can be identified by a flag or color from the last time you visited? I think can…

  85. Wes'side Warrior August 3, 2014 11:34 am

    Funny… we are responding to each other without using the [REPLY] function… as in da “old dayz”… hahaha

  86. Wes'side Warrior August 3, 2014 11:34 am

    Old habits… hard to break.

  87. NorthShoreFan August 3, 2014 11:34 am

  91. Wes'side Warrior August 3, 2014 11:39 am

    Eh, Howzit, NSF! Long time, Bruddah!

    No.. what I meant was… After we come visit and talk story… den we leave… den we come back… can we see new posts since our last visit by just having the new posts highlighted? Instead of having to start at the top and read through each post to see if any new responses were posted to previous posts since da last time we came to visit. Wow, Lau lau! Felt like a Rap Replinger moment just then…

  92. NorthShoreFan August 3, 2014 11:39 am

    hooo..me blue too?!?!!?@#@??

  93. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 11:44 am

    OK, I see where some of the posts were pending. I cleared a bunch

  95. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 11:51 am

    I like the new http://hawaiiwarriorworld.com/ page. Easy to see everything current on UH Sports on the same page.

  96. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 11:52 am

    What gets me, though is that after I post, I am sent all the way back up to the top. I don’t suppose there’s a fix for that, though.

    I had a question that I posted as a reply re grading your avatar.

  100. oneseason August 3, 2014 12:03 pm

    Just a small rainbow? Maybe just green and black so as not to offend? πŸ™‚

  101. kapakahi August 3, 2014 12:05 pm


    Thanks for the reply!

    Hopefully works out for former Husker Jared Afalava to join UH…..considering that his family just moved back to the North Shore.

    Younger brother Jacob ’16 now with Red Raiders will bear watching this coming season.

  102. wowlaulau August 3, 2014 12:06 pm

    New format looks good…..

  103. BigFan August 3, 2014 12:06 pm

    That is funny. Rap was the king of local comedians. I can hear his voice when you mentioned his name.

  104. mj2k August 3, 2014 12:18 pm

    howzit, been a lurker since I got to UH in 2007, just wanted to say I think the new format looks good. I think it the big site should be rainbowwarriorworld, since it covers na wahine sports as well.

  105. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 12:20 pm

  111. Alnbama August 3, 2014 12:30 pm

    Well I’m usually just a lurker, so maybe that’s why I can’t see my first post. Maybe I really am invisible, lol.

  112. HawaiiMongoose August 3, 2014 12:35 pm

    So these are the new digs. I like the site and I think the branding is fine. The absence of rainbows doesn’t bother me. The “Reply” feature should perhaps be rethought. As others have pointed out, it will require users to scroll back up to view replies. This isn’t a true message board so that’s going to be time-consuming. Sometimes simple is best. But in any case it’s nice to be here with the rest of the UH fan ohana!

  113. K-5 August 3, 2014 12:36 pm

    imua na koa, laki makai, this coming season.

  114. NorthShoreFan August 3, 2014 12:51 pm

    See that the Hawaii Warrior World will need some tweaking.
    Go Warriors

  121. Tom Thumb August 3, 2014 1:08 pm

    An easy solution to the reply problem would be to move the original post and subsequent replies to the time of the last reply. That way you will not have to check back in the whole list of posts for any replies, just the previous few replies.
    Also newer posts should be at the beginning of the list not at the end. This way you don’t have to scroll down to the end of the list for newer posts.

  122. DaMenehune August 3, 2014 1:11 pm

    Like the new site. Miss the numbers.

  123. 702WarriorFan August 3, 2014 1:12 pm

    ST . . . The article in the SA this morning mentioned that Vasquez Haynes has health concerns. Are these serious injuries that will have a significant impact on his season? Or just minor, nagging injuries?

  129. BigFan August 3, 2014 1:37 pm

    Thx. That is an issue that I brought up previously. You have to check back for replies. Humbug for some people so replies may be overlooked.

  135. slenzi August 3, 2014 1:56 pm

    Nice new site. Remember us old folks need large fonts.
    Congrats on all the changes; looks like a bold new beginning.

  136. Darren August 3, 2014 2:03 pm

    Recall that Haynes had a shoulder issue last year. Same problem or it something new?

  137. Slugger August 3, 2014 2:09 pm


    Great watching Shane Austin & Royce Pollard play in Cleveland yesterday for their AFL playoff game against the Philadelphia Soul. Nice to be able to watch former Warriors continue to play FB.

    Sorry I’m missing UH Warriors’ practices & games. πŸ™


  138. slenzi August 3, 2014 2:12 pm

    “Season-ticket sales near 35-year low!”
    Had a friend visiting me here in Florida, so I asked her if we still had the old season ticket holders going to the games. She said that they get together and go to the games, but they don’t have a block of tickets anymore, they just tailgate and pipe in to their TV’s and have a good time. May be easiest people to win back. They were certainly some of the most passionate fans.

    if you’re having a hard time reading you can try holding the crtl key and pressing + until it gets as big as you want it to be, or hits the limit. If you you want it smaller hold crtl and press –

  144. gobows August 3, 2014 2:33 pm

    many of the old timers are unable to go to the games…due to poor health and age.

    So far, so good…Our season will depend on our team leaders & how well we play together. The potential is there, so it will be the matter of tapping that potential.

  146. gobows August 3, 2014 2:37 pm

    they fixed the clock. that was fast.

  147. Z August 3, 2014 2:39 pm

    Easier to navigate. Funny how I have to poke STs face with my finger to get to this blog.

    I developed a shoulder issue yesterday. I lifted a case of Heinekens from the back of my truck. I had to reach over for it since it was in the middle of the bed and lifted it straight up. I should have pulled it to close to me before lifting. Anyway my shoulder is stiff and sore.

  150. Jalansky August 3, 2014 2:51 pm

    With apologies to Field of Dreams: “build it and they will come”–to the new site; “build it and they will come”–to Aloha Stadium. to support the 2014 Rainbow Warrior football team! Great overview in this morning paper, ST, getting us all revved up for the season! Go ‘Bows!

    C’mon, you have to use your knees. Bending knees is important for people of a certain age.

  155. Pomaikaikeolahou August 3, 2014 3:04 pm

    Well lets see if this works

  156. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 3:05 pm

    I can see what people mean about the scrolling part.
    OK, that’s on my to-do list:
    1. Bring back the numbers.
    2. Return to bottom after posting.
    3. Lose the blue. We’re either all blue or nobody’s blue.

  157. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 3:06 pm

    We also needs some borders.
    Gee, my comments are running right into the ad of a giant lychee.

  158. Pomaikaikeolahou August 3, 2014 3:08 pm

    Well I guess I have to change my name from Pomai to the full name which I can’t remember how to spell. LOL

  159. d1shima August 3, 2014 3:14 pm

    Wow. Touching watching Jim Kelly mouthing along with Andre Reed during his HOF speech: 12+83 always equals 6.

    Nah ST, the blue is nice. That’s how we know it is you with possibly some earth shattering news.

  163. Z August 3, 2014 3:35 pm

    Ditto. I like the blue. Easier to find STs posts.

    can make the Rice game?

  167. A-House August 3, 2014 3:52 pm


    we just returned from Guardians at Ward Theaters

    we all liked it – especially the short “quips” of days past!

  168. A-House August 3, 2014 3:53 pm

    how you in the high country amid all the tall pine trees?

  169. A-House August 3, 2014 3:54 pm

    from Kauai?

  170. A-House August 3, 2014 3:56 pm

    reply feature is nice, but would take a long time to start at the beginning and scroll all the way through

  171. cocobean August 3, 2014 4:00 pm

    ST. In the spirit of the season (political), congratulations on your new beginning. The Warrior Beat was great as it was. I don’t think any of your constituents felt there was a need for a change…..very different from the sentiments expressed by many about the UH administration and our elected officials. The WB was one thing in view that wasn’t broken.

  172. A-House August 3, 2014 4:04 pm

    glad to see green and white for the website wording

    we are still green and white for school colors

    football and other sports – well that’s another story for another day

    Not sure if I want to go to the Rice game or the Colorado State game.

  175. nutmegger August 3, 2014 4:09 pm

    I’m lost as usual.

  176. BigFan August 3, 2014 4:15 pm

    Thx for the review.

  177. nutmegger August 3, 2014 4:24 pm

    1) should add numbers
    2) reply feature will be hard to track – maybe double post once at end and back where original comment/reply was made

  178. BigFan August 3, 2014 4:24 pm

    Yeah, I don’t have a problem with the color.

  179. BigFan August 3, 2014 4:29 pm

    At first, I only heard an excerpt and paused for a second regarding the math. That was touching. I know Gary Dickman had his story about being rudely rejected for an autograph from Kelly. Maybe he changed or situation different.

  180. hatakeman August 3, 2014 4:31 pm

    Me too. I like the blue.

  181. BigFan August 3, 2014 4:32 pm

    Not football related but that Leo Klink or Harada (as he is now known) story in today’s paper is sure tragic. His stepfather seems like a shyster.

  182. hatakeman August 3, 2014 4:35 pm

    I wonder what the differences are in operating systems because I don’t have the scrolling problem, nor size of font. All good for me.

  183. Tom Thumb August 3, 2014 5:06 pm

    Anytime a new reply is made to a post, the post and all replies should move to the time of the new reply. Keep all the times of post and replies intact, but list at most current activity. There will be no need to scroll thru the entire list of posts because all posts with recent replies gets moved to the top of the list. The list of posts should be from new to old to avoid having to scroll the entire list to get to the latest posts.

  184. C-Pop August 3, 2014 5:07 pm

    Blue is good add for ST always want to read your posts

  185. C-Pop August 3, 2014 5:09 pm

    If they can do it, makes sense.

  191. Haleakala August 3, 2014 5:45 pm

    ST: I know about using my knees to lift. However when you get to a certain age you forget certsin things and plus your muscles aren’t like they used to be. I’m finding that out in a number of ways.

  192. Jason August 3, 2014 5:46 pm

    Hello everyone! Interesting setup. I actually like having Stephen’s posts in blue, I don’t think that should change! πŸ™‚

    Stephen blue is cool and atleast there can’t be a fake Stephen.
    Could be worst, could have been pink

  211. Stephen Tsai August 3, 2014 8:53 pm

    We’ve got numbers!
    They’re on the right, but they’re there.

    Numbers look good.

  213. d1shima August 3, 2014 9:02 pm

    …and they’re in order! πŸ˜†

  214. HawaiiMongoose August 3, 2014 9:03 pm

    ST, I understand why you might not like the blue. It draws extra attention to your posts and you may feel that some folks will be disappointed if they go searching through the blue expecting to find a continuous stream of insider information and profound observations when often you’re just engaging in spontaneous banter. But I also understand why a lot of folks would like you to keep the blue. They’re here to hang out with the beat writer for the UH football team. Some have serious questions for you, others just want to engage in a casual dialogue, and others only want to follow along, but your presence is part of the attraction. So the “ST is here” blue serves a purpose. I suggest you keep it for awhile and see how it goes; just don’t let it change the way you post, because I think it’s safe to say that the rest of us aren’t wanting or expecting anything different.

  215. HawaiiMongoose August 3, 2014 9:06 pm

    Hey! Numbers! That was fast. Nice work Adam.

  216. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:11 pm

    It doesn’t take superior talent to win games. You gotta win the special teams battle. You must win the turnover battle. Talent is good to have. But it doesn’t take talent to carry out the details of your assignment.
    1. Do it right.
    2. Do it 100% on every play

    Discipline – to learn and know your assignment
    Discipline – to carry our your assignment the way you were coached to do it.
    Discipline – to be possess adequate physical conditioning to give 100% effort.
    Discipline – to give 100% effort because you care about your teammates.

    We can win games. The only people who’s opinion matters are the ones meeting in tonight’s team meeting. They decide the fate of their season. Not us as fans. Not the media. Not the opposing team.

  217. eMpTy August 3, 2014 9:13 pm

    Testing. I like the blue for ST. Makes it easier to find his posts.

  218. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:15 pm

    Do it right.
    Do it 100%

    Every single play.

  220. madeinhawaii August 3, 2014 9:22 pm

    numbers and one stream of conversation without branches… avatar also works. I like the new look.

  221. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:23 pm

    Lots respect for Washington’s Hau’oli Kikaha. I wish him many successful years in the NFL. If you run away from him, he’ll run you down all night. Gotta run at him with various people from different angles. Trying to tackle Joey Iosefa all night will tire the best of them. Other options will open up after slowing Kikaha down a little.

  222. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:28 pm

    Oregon State always plays Hawaii tough. Gotta win the turnover battle. Gotta win the special teams phase of the game. Focus on real tough run defense and make the quarterback very, very uncomfortable. Offense minimize turnovers. Puts us in the game.

  223. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:38 pm

    Northern Iowa have been looking at this date for a long time. Recruiting has always included this trip to Hawaii. Believe me they will be ready to play. They come off if a bye week after opening up against Iowa, in Iowa. They will not be impressed by Hawaii’s stadium or program. Hawaii has to be disciplined enough to treat this game as they would any other on their schedule.

  224. d1shima August 3, 2014 9:40 pm

    No can “REPLY” anymore but Kifi still get ’em!

  225. WarriorMojo August 3, 2014 9:41 pm

    Liking the new look so far.

    Kden. Get some rest.

    Football tomorrow!


  227. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:46 pm

    Fourth game against Colorado in Boulder. One if the greatest venues to play college football. PAC 12 football in a PAC 12 stadium. If you’re a young man between the age of 18 and 22 and you don’t get excited? Then you’re playing the wrong sport. Play hard, play inspired football. But execute, execute, execute.

  228. islandman August 3, 2014 9:50 pm

  230. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:57 pm

    Fifth game against Rice in Houston. This is a look out game. Look out, they might bite you in the derriΓ¨re. Playing against Rice is like playing against Navy. Smart guys who are more focused on becoming engineers and investment bankers rather than NFL employees. But, with intelligence comes smart, team players, who execute flawlessly. And just because they’re smart, doesn’t mean their not good athletes. Gotta be ready for this one.

  231. Kifi August 3, 2014 9:59 pm

    Chunky’s roast pork was the best. Ate there once or twice. Or three times.

  232. Kifi August 3, 2014 10:05 pm

    Still vivid memories of standing by that entrance to the stadium near Chunky’s eagerly awaiting the arrival of the ’73 Buff-n-Blue. Mosi Tatupu, Keith Uperesa, and Duane Akina were bigger than life characters to me. It seem like only yesterday.

  233. cocobean August 3, 2014 10:08 pm

    Use to look forward to Thursdays. Swiss steak at Diners Drive In.

    Nuff. Night.

  235. SteveM August 3, 2014 10:09 pm

    I think the “reply” button helps keep posts and subsequent comments organized in a continuous thread. No need blockquotes and reference to post numbers. Great if you had only 10-20 main comments per day…

    …BUT, that’s not the style of the WARRIOR BEAT… a continuous chat and community center. It is what it is and over 8 years, we’re pretty much used to that. πŸ™‚

  236. NotNasti August 3, 2014 10:12 pm

    Rice will be heavy favorites to beat us in Houston. They were 10-4 last year and are the defending Conf. USA champs after going 7-1.

  237. oldie August 3, 2014 10:14 pm

    Just checking to make sure I’m able to post on this new site.
    Getting closer to game time. The long wait is almost over.

    Go Rainbow Warriors!

    New site. New season. New things to come.


  239. cocobean August 3, 2014 10:16 pm

    Thumbs up to the blue. The voice of reason should be emphasized.

  240. Hilo-Warrior August 3, 2014 10:18 pm

    Rice may have been the champs. But living here in San Antonio we saw them a bunch. They were beatable in many games. Key for UH is the turnovers. Once we stop giving the other team the ball as much as we have been lately, we got a chance.

  241. cocobean August 3, 2014 10:20 pm

    Most MWC teams would have a hard time beating Rice in their house let alone having to travel over 4k miles to do so.

    Played RB as HS senior……after playing mostly LB his first 2 HS seasons. Saw action in 2 games for Weber State at LB before suffering season-ending injury.

    Aloha To The New Site !

    Interesting set up with a few wrinkles to change as Warrior World is off and running. Now how do I set a picture to my frame ?

    Got a cartoon character that will go perfect there. Definitely an intriguing look

  247. slenzi August 4, 2014 1:27 am

    Wow, no one is saying where they think some wins will come from. Could this really be a no improvement year, or just tougher schedule? Stay healthy and good things will happen early. A lot of folks will be looking past Hawaii, that’s our chance to get over.

  248. Lopaka43 August 4, 2014 1:53 am

    Cool. Will we be able to access this blog through the “Sports” link?

  266. Shoko August 4, 2014 9:16 am

    Vegas line for Hawaii’s opening game against Washington dropped down to 15 points from 20. That’s quite the drop in two days especially when you consider the Huskies QB situation was announced a week and a half ago.


  267. 3-Prong August 4, 2014 10:55 am

    I thought that the reply buyton was a cool feature.

  271. oldtimer808 August 4, 2014 3:23 pm

    I have a gut feeling that this will be a banner year for our UH Rainbow Warriors and looking forward to an upset over Washington. Our defense will do their job the kind that we are used to.
