The Warriors are committed to using a tight end this season, but there’s now some flexibility with the 11th offensive position.

The Warriors had hoped to use a fullback โ€” which, like the tight end โ€” was absent from their offense the previous 14 seasons. Inside receiver Scott Harding and running back Will Gregory are providing other options.

Harding has been one of the Warriors’ most consistent receivers in spring training. The Warriors are open to employing a three-receiver set featuring two wide receivers, a tight end, Harding as an inside receiver and running back Joey Iosefa.

Dustin Elisara, a converted defensive lineman, has been practicing as the No. 1 fullback. Iosefa is considered the Warriors’ best back, and with the emergence of Gregory, there is possibility both could be used in the same backfield. They could be in a split-back set, or Iosefa could serve as a power back with Gregory as the speed back.

Head coach Norm Chow said he wants to craft a role for the Gregory, who redshirted as a freshman in 2011.

“I had to redshirt because I couldn’t get the blocking down,” Gregory said, a reference to the primary role of the running back in last year’s four-wide offense.

Now the speedy Gregory can be used strictly as a running back in the newly implemented pro-set offense.

“I was at the right place at the right time,” Gregory said.

Gregory also can be used in tough-yards situations. He said he has gained 20 pounds, and now weighs 210.

“This offense is cool,” Gregory said. “I’m learning every day.”

* * * * *

Chow said the Warriors will have their first scrimmage this afternoon.

Chow said there will be 60 plays, with the first and second teams getting 30 plays apiece.

Former UH safety Mike Wadsworth was unsuccessful in his appeal for a waiver allowing him to enroll at BYU.

Wadsworth was a top specialist as a UH freshman in 2009. He then went on a two-year church mission to England.

He requested a release from UH that would allow him to transfer to another school. UH agreed to release him to any school but BYU. Wadsworth appealed, but the ruling was upheld.

  2. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:41 am

    Scrimmage today!

  3. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:45 am

    Sterling Jackson must be chomping at the bit.. .

  4. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:47 am


    You’re right, Steven Christian isn’t on the roster anymore.

  5. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 12:47 am

    So does that mean Mike Wadsworth will be enrolling at UH or is he paying his own way to play at BYU?

  6. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:48 am


    He might go down one division for a year. He can do that, play and come back, right?

  7. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 12:49 am

    What time is the scrimmage? Hoping it’s late enough for me to attend. ๐Ÿ˜†

  8. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 12:49 am


    Chow said he’s not on the team anymore

    I guess he indicated he was looking at other options after earning his degree, so UH moved on without him.

    I hope he has something lined up.

  9. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 12:50 am


    Practice is at 3:30.

    Have no idea when the scrimmage will be played.

  10. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 12:52 am


    I think he can move down a division or enrolls at UH, he can play right away. But if he enrolls at BYU without a release, he will have to pay for his own tuition and must redshirt this year. Same situation with Stump Godfrey.

  11. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 12:52 am


    Wadsworth isn’t coming back to UH.

    I imagine he’ll enroll at BYU.

    There was some talk about a rule change that would require a player who transfers after returning from a mission to redshirt. I did a soft search and haven’t found if that rule passed or not.

    In either case, Wadsworth has to pay his own way.

  12. Hilo-Warrior April 13, 2012 12:54 am

    good morning

  13. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 12:55 am

    I do know that Rley Nelson played at Utah State as a freshman, went on a two-year church mission, then played at BYU without sitting out a year.

    In 2009, the NCAA enacted what is referred to as the Riley Nelson Rule, in which schools may not contact players on missions.

  14. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:55 am

    Can’t he accept a schollie from a FCS team then try to go back to BYU the following year? Assuming an FCS team would take him for a year, that is.

  15. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 12:55 am

    Darn it. Won’t be able to make it. These are the times when I wish we still had the Princess. Hey, Mr. Tsai, you mind making her work for a couple of hours? She should be done with work by then. I’m sure the tsaikos who aren’t able to attend don’t mind chipping in.

  16. al April 13, 2012 12:56 am

    btw…is there any promise in seeing chinedu “promise” amadi running with the ball this year?

  17. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:57 am


    No DSLR photographs, so NO videos, I’m sure.

  18. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 12:57 am



    You may be right.

  19. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 12:57 am

    Along with Jackson, haven’t heard those names at all, either.

  20. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 12:58 am

    FBS and FCS schools are both Division I; player must sit out a year if he transfers from FCS to FBS.

  21. al April 13, 2012 12:58 am

    too bad…i really liked mike wadsworth. seemed like a real football player.

  22. al April 13, 2012 12:59 am

    whats the word on ben mamea?

    did he really attend west oahu college and did he earn or is on target to earn the mandatory 24 credits?

  23. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:00 am


    Too bad about Wadsworth. Really showed some potential as a true freshman.

    Well, wishing him the best. Thanks for being a warrior.

  24. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:01 am

    It’s a good rule. BYU was able to evaluate Wadsworth as a freshman. Wadsworth’s mission was honorable and well-meaning. But if he’s on a mission for the Mormon church, which administers BYU, there is some inherent advantage for the Cougars. It’s probably unintentional, but it is an advantage.

  25. al April 13, 2012 1:01 am

    this scrimmage looms large for the entire team.

    call it the elevator ride, some will go up and others will go down.

  26. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:03 am

    I don’t think jobs will be won or lost because of the scrimmage.

    The coaches need to evaluate players, and the scrimmage is another measurement tool.

  27. al April 13, 2012 1:03 am

    st…you did mean “30 plays apiece” and not “30 players apiece” didn’t you?

  28. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:03 am



    I’ll just have to rely on reports from everyone.

  29. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:04 am

    Yep, 30 plays.


    Some of the OL might have to do double-duty. There’s a shortage of linemen at the moment.

  30. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:05 am

    UH does not allow photos or videos when the team is in formation during practices.

  31. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:06 am

    You guys better attend practices now.

    They’re expected to be closed to the public in the fall.

  32. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:09 am



    I’m willing to carry your bag around for you for a media pass during the fall. ๐Ÿ˜†

  33. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:11 am

    Derek Inouchi provides media passes.

    You guys should ask if he needs help.

    Of course, that means you wouldn’t be able to post on blogs or sports sites.

  34. al April 13, 2012 1:13 am

    hey, thats a job for you-know-who.

  35. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:15 am


  36. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:15 am

    Oh, so, Ican bring my camera but just not point it at the team when/where they are in formation?

  37. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:16 am

    I’m sure Derek Inouchi needs a closer.

    We’ve been leaving UH at 6:30 p.m. Derek, while helpful, has that exasperated look because he carpools with his wife, who has to wait for him.

  38. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:16 am

    Btw, what happened to NorthShoreFan? He’s been MIA. Hope everything is fine

  39. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:17 am


    I think basically the media can shoot the first 30 minutes of practice.

    Not sure if the public is allowed to take photos. WarriorMojo was told he couldn’t shoot.

  40. al April 13, 2012 1:17 am

    so mack has his house for sale. i guess he’s staying away from all things university of hawaii, he didn’t even let artie wilson list it.

    well, mack has certainly kept his end of the bargain…we haven’t even heard a peep from him. i thought some sort of nice exit interview would have been nice coming from him. afterall we paid him well.

    oh well.

  41. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:20 am

    He has two houses in Hawaii.

  42. al April 13, 2012 1:23 am

    isn’t his grandson going to be a senior next year?

  43. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:27 am

    Sophomore, I think.

  44. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:30 am

    If I recall the past practices I’ve been to, there have been people taking pictures. In fact, Island Sports Media’s facebook page has a bunch of photos of practice. Also, I don’t recall reading anything that says “no photography” around the fence. I’ve seen “no filming” and a bunch of arrows symbols.

    Maybe they were installing trick plays that day WarriorMojo was told not to shoot.

  45. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:32 am

    Anyway, time to hit the sack. Looking forward to reports from scrimmage.

  46. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:35 am


    Don’t know. I got a call from Derek saying “one of your people” is trying to shoot photos.

    I didn’t know I had “people.”

  47. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:36 am

    Then again, Koakane gave himself a tour of the locker rooms.

    I’ll take credit for him.

  48. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:38 am

    Where is practice? ON the grass or in Ching?

  49. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:39 am

    By the way, I haven’t been posting photos while Ferd and I await the iPhones ScottM promised us.

  50. al April 13, 2012 1:40 am


  51. BleedGreen808 April 13, 2012 1:41 am


    I think Mr. Inouchi thinks everyone is your “people”. You are a popular guy.

    Before I forget, as always, thanks for the info.

    Good night to all, including lurkers!

  52. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:41 am


    Don’t know.

    By the way, ya know i love ya, but can you post only the link to the blog and not most of the content on Facebook? Thanks.

  53. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:43 am

    Sorry about that…I had a difficult time trying to figure out where to cut it off..it just kept building…I’ll be more careful in the future.

  54. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 1:44 am

    No prob.

  55. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:46 am

    I should have done it like I did in Sportshawaii,,,but Sportshawaii I sat on it longer…I went backto delete and repost, but some guy had already commented and I didn’t want to kill his comment.

  56. slenzi April 13, 2012 2:14 am

    My youngest son was a Tyler Gronke fan. He made a sign out of an old sheet to take to Spring Practice after the Sugar Bowl. Sign said, “And now its Tyler Time!” We never got to unfurl it and wondering what ever happened to Tyler. Hope he will be remembered for the part he played in Warrior history of the perfect season.

  57. mo808 April 13, 2012 4:13 am

    “Practice is at 3:30. Have no idea when the scrimmage will be played.”

    Okeedokee! I better try to make it there for the scrimmage might be last chance!

    Have an Aloha filled Friday all!

  58. WarriorNY April 13, 2012 4:43 am

    Hey all,

    Have a good time watching practice and scrimmage today. Would love to see what you guys think of the new defense in the scrimmage.

  59. WarriorNY April 13, 2012 5:10 am

    Also, I came across this…


  60. Loa April 13, 2012 5:12 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Happy Aloha Friday!


    GO BOWS!

  63. expat April 13, 2012 6:09 am

    No one at UH is impeding Wadsworth from playing at BYU next year. The only question is whether Wadsworth can immediately receive an athletic scholarship from BYU. Two different things entirely.

  64. koakane April 13, 2012 6:14 am

    good morning 808 and alojah Friday yu’all

    side note Fed tax deadline soon, filing for extension iover…. as some say get her done

    Good Morning Ganageez! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, Mr. Tsai, you have people. Like it or not that includes moi. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great post today, chock full o’ the stuff your people love to read, Big Daddy! Definitely gonna try and make the scrimmage today.

    What exactly is Sterling Jackson’s status. It will be nice to see him in the backfield too.

  71. Da Punchbowl Kid April 13, 2012 7:03 am

    Mornin’ Beeg Heelo, Auntie Liz, whitey, Dennis and NYUH! How’s errybody?

  72. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 7:14 am

    Sterling Jackson is recovering from an injury. He won’t be participating in contact drills this spring.

  73. tommui April 13, 2012 7:15 am


    DPK – depending on you to report on the scrimmage today.

    GOOD PEOPLE, Don’t forget to vote today for Stephanie!

  74. Otto April 13, 2012 7:21 am

    Stuff like this is why no one likes the NCAA. The student is bound to the school, but the school and NCAA have all the control; they can cut the scholarship; the coach that recruited you can leave; the NCAA owns your likeness and can sell you name on a jersey and picture (and the student gets nothing); the NCAA tells you can’t sell your personal property or work a part-time job… I think UH should give him a full release.

  75. el burro sabio April 13, 2012 7:22 am


    Who or what entity was Wadsworth appealing to?

  76. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 7:25 am

    Gud luck Mike W.

  81. cheepono April 13, 2012 8:40 am

    does this mean we need to worry about byu trying to get ursua in 2 years?

  82. cheepono April 13, 2012 8:41 am

    that’s a pretty dirty tactic by byu. contacting a player while on a mission seems highly unethical. the irony is that byu supposedly holds themselves to a higher standard than the rest. go figgah.

  83. Da Punchbowl Kid April 13, 2012 8:43 am

    cheepono –

    Things that make ya go hmmmmm…

  84. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 9:01 am

    Especially since BYU wasn’t recruiting him when he was in high school. I believe, Wadsworth had offers from Arizona, Hawaii, and Nevada.

  85. SteveM April 13, 2012 9:02 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Looks like great weather for a scrimmage and the softball game.

  86. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 9:06 am

    cheepono …

    Or that QB Zwahlen. should he commit to UH. He also plans to go on a 2-year mission after his freshman year.

  87. Couch potato April 13, 2012 9:08 am

    i thought there were contact rules in place while a member of the LDS was on a church mission. anywhozit, who said Wadsworth was contacted by byu during his mission? if they did then it would be a violation.

  88. Think2much April 13, 2012 9:21 am

    What would be the problem with releasing Wadsworth to BYU? There may be other factors for Mr. Wadsworth to want to go to BYU besides football. And with the new coaching staff and schemes, and Wadsworth being away for two years, strategic reasons shouldn’t be a concern. But I guess it is.

  89. Couch potato April 13, 2012 9:27 am

    are the north koreans crazy? first their rocket test fails and now they may be entertaining testing their nuclear power. talk about digging a deeper hole.

    first of all they should consult with Hyundai to build a better structured rocket and also contact Samsung for their electronics expertise. no use play with uranium until they can make a rocket that can stay in one piece, fly straight, and communicate with mission control.

  90. Couch potato April 13, 2012 9:29 am

    Wadsworth can go to byu, just not on a football schollie.

  91. HammahTime April 13, 2012 9:30 am

    Dustin Elisara #44 is looking pretty beastly out there at Fullback. Looking a lot more in shape and slim. Relentless kid. Looking forward to watching this kid knock some heads in.

  92. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 9:33 am

    Couch Potato,

    They’ll end up blowing themselves up. Then no more threat, yah?

  93. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 9:44 am

    Wadsworth can go to BYU. He’ll just have to pay his way for a year. Or he can go to 118 other schools and receive a scholarship. This is a pre-emptive move by UH because it will be recruiting more Utah players.

  94. Couch potato April 13, 2012 9:44 am

    the thing is we don’t want them to get carried away and take out South Korea too. then where Palama market going get most of their inventory?

  95. oldtimer808 April 13, 2012 9:51 am

    Aloha I have a good feeling about the upcoming football season. This team will surprise us with some upset wins. I suspect that Coach Chow can finally run the offense the way he has always envisioned. Has Coach Shoji announced anything concerning transfers? Have a great day Warrior Beat.

  96. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 9:53 am

    Couch Potato.. !!

    What was I thinking! .. besides day old bread from St. Germaine, they would go out of business. No can let that happen!

  98. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 10:01 am

    Excellent discussion about Spring Training here.. come back after you’re done though.. and discuss, please.


  99. d1shima April 13, 2012 10:05 am

    Oh! This just announced by a NKorean spokesman.

    The Great Leader has announced a continued celebration of the Great Founder’s 100th Birthday that builds on the recent successful rocket launch.

    Thousands of the Leader’s adoring followers have volunteered to build and work in the project to develop the most advanced and feared weapons in the world to protect Dear Leader from western threats.

    This is an instructive demonstration to the lowly dog-like opposition of the Nearly-Great Present President of a truly “Nuclear Family”.

  100. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 10:08 am


    North Korean is a little different from South Korean dialect.. lemme see if I can translate…

    “Okay, so we sucked with rocket launch, but was funny yah? Anyway, we need more money… Nuclear threat means we REALLY need US bucks.. please advise ASAP when check will be in the mail.”

  101. Couch potato April 13, 2012 10:10 am

    i too am excited to see a different Warrior team on the field. i try not to get too uber excited since this is a new offense and defense. however, with the enthusiasm and dedication of the players and coaches i feel they’ll be clicking on almost all cylinders by midpoint of the season.

    last season i got excited being that they were the defending WAC champions with an experienced defense but we know how that ended. that’s ok though, the team is starting fresh , wrinkles are being ironed out, eyes wide open attitudes are there, come fall, GO WARRIORS!

  102. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 10:11 am


    I dunno about wrinkles being ironed out, just yet… more like wrinkles being found. I think they take all the bumps and wrinkles into the off season and figure out how to iron or smooth things over before fall camp begins.

  103. Couch potato April 13, 2012 10:21 am

    no can take wrinkles into da off season since coaches no going be der fo teach da playas how fo use da iron. playas go to laundry man in da weightroom and ask fo key to no wrinkle cream. ~couchfucious

  104. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 10:23 am

    Couch Potato.. just hope they don’t put the starch on the wrong places.. can cause chaffing..

  105. Couch potato April 13, 2012 10:24 am

    …and stiffness.

  106. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 10:25 am

    stiffness on a guy.. not too bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Everybody went into hiding.. I better gets some work done too, I suppose.

    NCAA announces the winners of the 2011-2012 women basketball “Pack the House” award to 32 conferences and 1 independent. Every team gets to pick a game to promote “Pack the House” and compete with conference members. La Tech is named WAC winner, for them, it’s 5 consecutive years- this year’s game with Fresno drew 7000+. In the Big West, Long Beach won the honors with 2656 in attendance.

    and K State won the Big 12 for the second consecutive year with 12,528 fans at the Baylor game.


    I hope Beeman can light the fire under UH marketing to promote games for the Na Wahine, they deserve a better fate and commitment from UHAD.

    I like this web blog very much so much great information. โ€œProbably the most distinctive characteristic of the successful politician is selective cowardice.โ€ by Richard Harris.

    1 – Do it right.

    2 – Do it 100%.

  115. Wes'side Warrior April 13, 2012 12:40 pm

    Howzit, everyone!

    Mahalo for the updates, ST! Good stuff to read and discuss!

    Gang, we have until May14 to continue voting for Stephanie Ricketts. Looks like most of the others are slowing down or forgetting to vote. We gotta keep the vote going and build up as large a lead as possible. You know some of the competition will come on strong near the end.

    Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Go, Wahine!!!

    Go, ‘Bows!!!

    Wes’side Warrior:

    The one from Alabama is making a huge surge.. she was in the lead then fell far back.. now she’s less than 3% back… let’s not drop the ball in the last quarter like 2006!… VOTE! and beat Alabama!

    Working for me now.. somehow I picked up this thing called funmoods and it was spreading like wildfire on my computer… killed it with the old standby… Combofix.exe

  119. Kevin April 13, 2012 1:08 pm


    One UH team beat BAMA … TWICE… IN BAMA in 2010.

    Neva mind 2006.

  120. cheepono April 13, 2012 1:09 pm

    i heard through the grapevine that #37 on D is geordon hanohano’s younger brother. any truth to this?

  121. (Jesse) James April 13, 2012 1:17 pm

    Kevin …Can you post the voting link again??? Thanks.

  122. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:18 pm

    Does this look like he could be hanohano’s younger brother?


    I dunno…

    #81 cheepono i hear u byu always does that crap they did that when malosi teo was on a schollie at unlv then when he went on his mish byu made their move. durty buggas.

  126. al April 13, 2012 1:35 pm

    mih…thats a pic of ragsdale who plays rb on offense.

    cheepono’s reference is a guy on “d”.

  127. cheepono April 13, 2012 1:35 pm

    mih- that’s #37 on offense.

  128. cheepono April 13, 2012 1:38 pm

    the la tech softball team is out at waikiki resort hotel and learning the hula as we speak. lol

  129. cheepono April 13, 2012 1:41 pm

    i hope they catch that “possibly armed” guy down by the hawaiian studies lo’i so football practice is unaffected. really wanna catch the scrimmage.

  130. DaveLetterMan April 13, 2012 1:43 pm

    Don’t let Petrino near Ragsdale’s sister!

  131. Kevin April 13, 2012 1:43 pm


    April 13th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    i hope they catch that “possibly armed” guy down by the hawaiian studies lo’i so football practice is unaffected. really wanna catch the scrimmage.

    I think there is a softball game to be played too tonight.

    Kind of important since I think we are in the WAC season fighting for #1.

    I think…

  132. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:48 pm

    Cheepono.. I know that link is for a RB but it was BigWave who said we shall see him on Defense.. I dunno… BigWaves alway confuse me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  133. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:49 pm

    Oh.. I see.. TWO DIFFERENT #37s! LOL


  134. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 1:49 pm

    This is sounding like a Korean Drama.

  135. movies online April 13, 2012 1:51 pm

    I really need to look at this movie, I question if I can obtain it or even hire it from the regional video shop

  136. cheepono April 13, 2012 1:52 pm

    yes kevin, i’m aware of a softball game tonight as well. a comment regarding wanting to watch the football scrimmage shouldn’t be construed as overlooking the importance of the softball team. chillax.

  137. Wes'side Warrior April 13, 2012 1:55 pm

    Just got a message from a niece that there’s some sort of a “shootout” at the UH campus. Anyone know anything? Be safe, those out there!

  138. Wes'side Warrior April 13, 2012 1:57 pm

    Oh, cheepono already mentioned something about 15 minutes ago. Sorry, takes long for da tweeting birds to reach ova hea.

  139. Kevin April 13, 2012 1:59 pm

    Just made a call to the UH athletic officeโ€ฆ



  140. Wes'side Warrior April 13, 2012 2:01 pm

    MIH… wasn’t sure how anyone else was doing. Looked like both Cal and Alabama had slowed down the past week, but I think some of our voters forgot too. Just gotta keep da pressure on.

    Name Current vote count

    Valerie Arioto 15%

    Katelyn Boyd 5.7%

    Mallory Duran-Sellers 3.9%

  143. jm2375 April 13, 2012 2:11 pm

    Received an notification from MPI that they have closed the gates into UH and increased security around the MPI campus, just in case…

    Hope this ends well.

  144. Kevin April 13, 2012 2:17 pm

    UH Richardson Law School and Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies on LOCKDOWN.

  145. Kevin April 13, 2012 2:18 pm

    This kid is starting to piss me off…

  146. Ralph April 13, 2012 2:24 pm

    Isn’t the Law School and Hawaiian Studies buildings above the tennis courts, top level of the parking structure? Hawaiian studies should be above the aquifer (duck pond) in the quarry.

  147. jm2375 April 13, 2012 2:25 pm

    Situation resolved (per MPI email)

  148. Kevin April 13, 2012 2:29 pm

    Yeppers…. Hawaii News Now says male is in HPD custody.

    GAME ON!!!

  149. Kevin April 13, 2012 2:35 pm


    Johnson Hall and Gateway are directly above the pond, next to them is the new Frear Hall overlooking the grass fields, then the “quads” and further down, almost off campus is the Hawaiian studies complex.

  150. Couch potato April 13, 2012 2:39 pm

    at first i thought it was you know who, but then i figgah he no mo shorty.

  151. ai-eee-soos April 13, 2012 2:40 pm

    forwarded to me ….. re UH ….

    (2:56 p.m.) Suspect apprehended by police off campus around 2:30 pm. All clear. Crisis counseling is available, call — —-.

    April 13th, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    at first i thought it was you know who, but then i figgah he no mo shorty.

    Thinking the same thing here.

    Saw the first description and it said individual was 5’7″… that’s TOO TALL.

    Then it went to 5’3″… EXACTLY!!!

    Then reading the story, it mentioned a girlfriend… (STRIKE ONE)

    Then his age… (STRIKE TWO)

    Then his Facebook photo … (STRIKE THREE)

  153. Couch potato April 13, 2012 2:49 pm

    Kevin, ๐Ÿ˜†

  154. mo808 April 13, 2012 2:53 pm

    Wow! So much drama today must be FRIDAY da 13th! Way to go HPD book’um! Any one know if scrimmage will be at grass area or Ching Field???

  155. Wes'side Warrior April 13, 2012 2:58 pm

    Mahalo, everyone!

    lol @ my niece… always exaggerating… “shootout”. Sorry, guys. Just wanted to make sure that everyone in the area was safe.

    And now we return you to your regularly scheduled program…

    Thought the same as many of you. Maybe ST needs to delete any post that makes reference to this event.

  156. d1shima April 13, 2012 3:11 pm

    Welcome #37 Joel Ragsdale!

  157. d1shima April 13, 2012 3:12 pm

    Hoping to see updates from the scrimmage. Decided the cloud build-up looked too heavy….

  158. (Jesse) James April 13, 2012 3:15 pm

    Thanks SJ.

    Ralph…Hawaiian Studies is more towards KaneWai Park .

  159. Kevin April 13, 2012 3:38 pm

    Checked in w/ST, scrimmage is at Ching Field.

    Drizzling. WAS overcast, kinda cleared up now.

  160. Ipu Man April 13, 2012 3:46 pm

    Thanks BigWave #112 for the scoop on mystery player.

    Impressive. Rachael, that is…

  161. d1shima April 13, 2012 3:50 pm


    Clearing skies, eh?

    The loud cracks not going be from tunda den! Wooo-tah!

  162. Ipu Man April 13, 2012 4:05 pm

    Aluminum bats clink…

  163. d1shima April 13, 2012 4:11 pm

    Going get aluminum bats at the scrimmage? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Wow, das hard core!

  164. mo808 April 13, 2012 4:14 pm

    @160 Kevin thanks for location of scrimmage! Any idea what time it will start?

  165. d1shima April 13, 2012 5:01 pm




  166. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 5:03 pm

    Dang! I left before four to go to the post office (metered drop off) and to make a quick delivery in the Moanalua/Salt Lake area … after which, I tried to head towards UH but Dillingham was a really bad choice. It was 5pm by the time I got to Kalihi Street, so I turned left and came back home.

  167. mo808 April 13, 2012 5:10 pm

    MIH I got there exactly at 5pm in time to catch last 20 minutes!

  168. mo808 April 13, 2012 5:12 pm

    Oh well, got my $6 back on the way out ๐Ÿ™‚

  169. Ipu Man April 13, 2012 5:16 pm

    hmmmm…strange sight at 5pm…

    saw a hang glider land among buildings at Ala Wai and

    Hobron Lane…and several scoot away across the street

    as if it was a planned you toob prank…

  170. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 5:19 pm



    Did you enjoy your 20 minutes? Must have been the 2nd team.

  171. mo808 April 13, 2012 5:28 pm

    I think so too…didn’t matter though the coaches are very very animated. It’ll probably be the only time I’ll be able to catch anything prior to the first game this fall. I had a hard time recognizing players and numbers as well but no matter. Go Warriors!

  172. mo808 April 13, 2012 5:31 pm

    I guess we’ll just have to await ST’s reports from todays scrimmage later on…

  173. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 5:38 pm

    I’d be the same way… I can’t figure out who is who until much later in the season. I get them all mixed up if they haven’t been starters from the previous year.

  174. al April 13, 2012 5:42 pm

    so i am wondering if the 3rd base dugout troll will show face tonight???

    if he does, will someone collect the $200?

  175. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 5:42 pm

    Are you at practice, al?

  176. al April 13, 2012 5:51 pm

    so who is surprised that trevor wiseman is also leaving?

  177. al April 13, 2012 5:55 pm

    wiseman came with a reported attitude and he leaves with one.

    not being named a starter has plagued this youngboo man for two years. his being close buds with bobby miles may have also contributed to his leaving.

    meanwhile, at least two recruits will visit next weekend one a pg and another a redshirt transfer who averaged 36 ppg in hs. then, there’s rumor of another european.

  178. al April 13, 2012 5:56 pm

    mih…no, i missed the scrimmage i was near your domain this afternoon and just got back.

  179. al April 13, 2012 5:57 pm

    in hindsight, i should’ve picked up some food from pake’s. thoughts of the stuffed taro duck will now haunt me through the night…


  180. al April 13, 2012 5:58 pm

    hmmm….where did this come from “youngboo”?

  181. al April 13, 2012 6:02 pm

    gibber has to sharpen his pencil these days.

    he has been able to ink many talented guys but keeping them here and getting them in has been an insumountable chore.

    sometimes you have to start with a recruits’ character, then academics, before you even fall in love with the physical attributes. quite a learning curve for the new coach.

    i think after this year he gets it.

  182. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 6:04 pm

    heh.. you were here and I was stuck in Kalihi.. Friday the 13th.. At least I stopped by at St Germain’s and had a cream-filled pastry to punish myself.

  183. al April 13, 2012 6:05 pm

    what no guava chiffon cake?


  184. mo808 April 13, 2012 6:08 pm

    I like stuffed duck too–but am now consuming some lettuce wraps from CPK thanks to a gift card from big Sis! ๐Ÿ™‚

  185. al April 13, 2012 6:17 pm

    i like pf chang’s lettuce wraps.

    did you know if they still have that 50% off pupus during happy hour?

  186. jm2375 (Infuse) April 13, 2012 6:24 pm

    going…on on for some beef chow fun w/black bean sauce hold the peppers and add the choy sum, cold ginger chicken, roast duck, and their famous stuffed eggplant w/pork hash.

    i wonder if the boss like order some food, too.

  201. d1shima April 13, 2012 6:57 pm

    “We did some good things out there on both sides of the ball,” Chow said. “It was nice to finally be able to get game reps and hit and tackle. The offense made some nice plays and our defense got some good hits in. There’s still a lot we need to work on but we’re getting better each day we practice and that’s refreshing to see.”>/blockquote>http://www.hawaiiathletics.com/news/2012/4/13/FB_0413123942.aspx

    here’s the link again


  203. al April 13, 2012 7:01 pm

    so, the irony of it all is that keith shamburger wants to transfer to hawaii. part of the reason was because he knew bobby miles and trevor wiseman. now that they have both departed…?

    some old talk of wiseman and shamburger getting in to it high school.

  204. SteveM April 13, 2012 7:06 pm

    Wahine up 6-0 after 4 innings.

  205. whitey April 13, 2012 7:14 pm

    voted. Go Steph and the Softbows

  206. lava April 13, 2012 7:31 pm

    I am not crazy about coaches whose teams are all full of malcontents. Everyone is to blame except coach Gib Arnold. I’m not buying it.

  207. oldtimer808 April 13, 2012 7:32 pm

    Well pau game for the softball bows 9 to 1 in the bottom of the sixth inning on Li’ilii 2 run homer to end the game.

  208. oldtimer808 April 13, 2012 7:37 pm

    I think it goes both ways for Coach Gibb and the players who are transferring out. It is unfortunate for these players to not be able to suck it up and learn some valuable lessons of commitment and never take the route chosen. To quit is never a good choice because things are not going your way. It becomes troublesome whenever there is adversity because it may be come a consistent choice.

  209. mo808 April 13, 2012 7:39 pm

    Woohoo Wahine! Vote Steph!

  210. Stephen Tsai April 13, 2012 7:39 pm

    UH is bringing in five basketball recruits next week.

    I’m pretty sure there are only two available scholarships, right?

    Maybe it’s a Law & Order thing: First two who accept get the scholies.

  211. oldtimer808 April 13, 2012 7:39 pm

    The wahines were hitting tonight and although there were 4 homers 2 by Majam, it was their ability to get on base via singles and walks. Great game.

  212. mo808 April 13, 2012 7:43 pm

    Any O-line guys?

  213. mo808 April 13, 2012 7:45 pm

    Oops! Oh my still in FB frame if mind here. You meant BB recruits…

  214. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 7:50 pm


    No shame, we knew you meant tall BIG overweight BB players that could try out for the Oline, come summer.

  215. kapakahi April 13, 2012 7:53 pm

    Benny Fonua made the trek again from the North Shore to attend today’s scrimmage.

    I can definitely see Benny being a great player host with potential prospects….as he was already bonding with Downey High (Modesto) QB prospect Aaron Zwahlen after today’s scrimmage.

  216. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 7:57 pm

    Aaron still around? He gave an interview with his town paper so I thought he had gone back already..

  217. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 8:07 pm

    Here’s a summary of today’s scrimmage by “intensity”. You’ll need your scout.com ID to read it… Less Kool-Aid than UH’s write-up.


  218. kapakahi April 13, 2012 8:17 pm

    BTW, JMHO that Tavita Woodard played so well at today’s scrimmage that the coaches will keep him at TE on offense.

    Off of what he displayed today, I just don’t see Tavita going back to DE anytime soon.

  219. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 8:22 pm


    Who was #37 on Defense?

  220. whitey April 13, 2012 8:26 pm

    st, thanks for the stats. running game had about 100 yds in 15 plays, a little over 6 yds per carry and the passing game had 150 yds in 15 plays, 10 yds per pass and 3 tds for the run and 2 for the pass. not too shabby.

  221. d1shima April 13, 2012 8:31 pm

    Nice to see Ostrowski getting some touches.

    How many of the 8 incompletions were intended for the Wideout? (1 completion)

  222. d1shima April 13, 2012 8:32 pm

    Baseb ๐Ÿ™‚ ws!

  223. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 8:34 pm

    Whitey.. that’s 100 yards in 25 plays for rushing and that’s 207 yard on 15 receptions on 23 pass attempts. So that breaks down to 4 yards a carry per rush.. and 13.8 yards per reception with a 65% comletions ratio.

  224. whitey April 13, 2012 8:38 pm

    mih, not good math and going blame the tax deadline. hahahahaaa. i not sure but think #37 is one moose of a lb and his sis is cute.

  225. jm2375 (Infuse) April 13, 2012 8:46 pm

    Congrats to the Wahine and basebows

    Mih – “Wrath if the Titans”. Liked the first one better.

    *of – fat fingers strike again

  227. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 8:49 pm

    I thought the one with the cute sister studying kenesiology was Ragsdale, a RB… but that there is another 37 on Defense?

  228. whitey April 13, 2012 8:51 pm

    mih, read that he was the mvp of brian urlacher’s camp, so assume he lb.

  229. whitey April 13, 2012 8:54 pm

    mih, this is what i read:

    “2008 graduate of Cherry Creek High School in Colorado. He played linebacker and averaged 13 tackles per game.

    Was named Teamโ€™s “Hammer” for being the hardest hitter and also All-Conference in both his Junior and Senior years. Top 10 SAC (strength agility conditioning ) test all 4 years at his High School. Attended a Brian Urlacher Summer Ccamp and won camp MVP award.” from SportsHawaii

  230. madeinhawaii April 13, 2012 9:09 pm

    whitey I saw that.. but at the very top of that thread it says..

    Joel Ragsdale


    Class: Senior

    Position: Running Back

    HT/WT: 6โ€™ 0โ€™โ€™ / 225 lbs

    And yesterday, it was hinted that we would see another on Defense…

  231. AllG April 13, 2012 9:17 pm

    Not many catches from the outside receivers…that’s a little scary

  232. AllG April 13, 2012 9:35 pm

    And I’m pretty sure that’s without our top two corners

  233. d1shima(Galaxy 'd) April 13, 2012 10:40 pm

    Long routes need good pass pro.

    That’ll come.

  234. BigWave96744 April 13, 2012 11:12 pm

    #37 on defense is a local boy who will be revealed after midnight on Sportshawaii.

    And no his last name is not Hanohano.

    Coaches want to have Ragsdale try out at fullback.

    Like Jared Leaf and Jordan Monico, Ragdale can play both FB and LB.

    Thing is he has only this season left.

  235. BigWave96744 April 13, 2012 11:14 pm

    Sad to see Darius Bright still sporting the Yellow Jersey.

    So curious to see what a healthy Darius can do

  236. BigWave96744 April 13, 2012 11:22 pm

    Ostrowski, Minns, Lutu, Enos, Brown, all on the football team may have more bball game appearances combined than the remaining players under Gib

  237. BigWave96744 April 14, 2012 1:03 am

    Mystery man #37 on defense is:

    Aloha Kakahiaka another great weekend…go LadyBows and Rainbow Warriors….sorry to see the players exodus the basketball team. This has to be a concern for the program with Coach Gibb’s ability to have the right chemistry with his staff and players. I hope no one else decides to leave.

    BigWave will be providing us with the scoops on fellow FB walk-on #20 in the near future too.

    BTW, noticed that #35 FB Jared Leaf was MIA from yesterday’s scrimmage.

    BTW, #31 P Alex Dunnachie was really booming his punts yesterday….’cuz the coaches “let him” (his words not mine)….implying that the former coaches apparently didn’t “let him”.

    Judging from the stats, this is going to be a well balanced offense. Look at the rushing yards and touchdowns, more specifically that of Will Gregory and John Lister. Base ST’s reports, Chow liked these players and his confidence was proven in the scrimmage stats. In the Run N Shoot, these players could not find playing time because maybe they were poor blockers. In the Chow offense, they are allowed to do what they do best, run to daylight!

    So, was the offense that good or was the defense marginal?

  248. kapakahi April 14, 2012 7:36 am

    Most of the rushing yards were between the tackles….behind the OL which was definitely getting a pretty good push on the DL….which didn’t happen the last 2 years (with Meatoga, Tuipulotu & Masch).
