Winning by a Mile

The offensive line won the Warriors Lip Sync Battle by a mile — actually, make that “8 Mile.”

Recreating the movie’s freestyle battle between B-Rabbit (played by offensive lineman Luke Clements) and Papa Doc (right guard Dejon Allen), the o-line was declared last night’s winner. Kudos to right tackle R.J. Hollis’ portrayal as the scene’s announcer.

It was noted yesterday that the Warriors will play games in five time zones this season:

> Eastern: Ohio State

> Central: Wisconsin

> Mountain: Boise, New Mexico

> Pacific: UNLV, Nevada

And, of course, UH plays in Hawaii’s time zone.

    The World is but a stage
    where we all must play a part…

    I think the time zone story is something that deserves its own story. Something that can go viral.

    Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
    In fair round belly with good capon lined,
    With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
    Full of wise saws and modern instances;

    from tales of halawa….not

    Looks like Luke Clements is recovered from his time in the pit!

    The day grows near…

    It’s a popular day on the Volleyshots blog.

    Not many fans of the 8 mile movie. Old futs. 😆

    Hopefully all these “off field” activities will help
    the bonding and chemistry of the team which will
    show up on Saturday nights @ Aloha Stadium …..

    Don’t know about you fellow Warrior Fans but this
    one is expecting at least 6 wins this season and an
    Aloha Bowl invite. I’m expecting to start the ’15
    campaign 1-0 with a win over Colorado

    GO ‘BOWS !!!!!

    Jeezy, from yesterday, LOL! But seems unrealistic to try and recruit him.

  15. islandman August 17, 2015 7:09 pm

    13. 808 — We need 7 wins for the bowl invite.

    To paraphrase Milton … better to reign in Division II …

    “Norm Parrish, an assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of Hawaii, could be named head coach at Westminster College in Utah as soon as this week.” …

    13 or so more practices of which 5 will be game week prep. By Saturday pretty much the shuffling will be over as they enter the final phase. Still could be some changes and meshing of situational personell. This will be a much improved team effort. How many wins? Who knows-but look to get at least 3 to 4 offensive scores minimally every time out. That will keep you in every game till the end. Go Warriors!
