When Rolo was hired, what excited you?

#1 Post by BigWave96744 » Tue Oct 31, 2017 3:32 pm

Coach Rolovich brought a lot of excitement when his first press Conference was held. He said the right things, remembered the past and got us believing in the restoration of Pride Rock and Living Aloha and Playing Warrior.

During the days after, what excited you about his hire?

I'll start
- The return of the 4 wide RNS mixed with the Pistol
- Young up and coming coach with knowledge from June, Mack & Ault
- A coach who would not let the foot off the gas pedal
- But most of all having Rolo being HC & OC and calling the plays. If not Rolo, then June or someone with a wealth of experience to mentor Rolo as an OC/HC

A coach that was fun and brought the program into the 21st century, instead of having all these older ex-NFL guys come in.

He bled green. Understood Hawaii. Had success as an OC. Brought more youth to the position. I haven’t given up on him.
Not doubting, not hating, not loving, just hoping because I am a fan.

Wyoming is going to smoke our butts.

Rolovich has always been a question mark. As a quarterback he took it far too easy his first year...until he finally saw the light. Then, he shined. He's a great recruiter...an amiable guy. He might be too nice as a head coach...too politically correct. I didn't like the passive dismissal of Kennedy T or the many undisclosed disciplinary infractions sidelining Warriors...all the while...the team is hypercritically committing penalties like no one else in the entire country.

Why can't we triumph once like Troy, Syracuse...or the Iowa State Cyclones?!!!!

Wide open offense with a learning curve on being a head coach.
