Re: Why is the run defense so bad?

Basic physics. Football is a game of collisions. If you have a so-so big guy versus a great small guy, I just might take the small guy. If you have a great big guy and a great small guy, all things even except size....I will take the big guy. The only way for the small guy to win is to be skilled, d...

Re: Why is the run defense so bad?

Personnel, Personnel, Personnel. When you have a largely unproven defensive line and linebacker corps, other teams will run for 300. Not to mention that most of them hover between 240 and 280lbs. Our defensive line does not exist for the most part as most offensive lines have blown them backwards ea...

Re: Yoro and Brown need to go

Is it fair to include dline coach Ena in this group? After all, the dline (or lack thereof) has allowed every opposing RB to look like an all-American.

Re: Thinnest Position

Dline. Coaches. Linebackers. All that has been discussed on this thread is showing it’s ugly/rebuilding head. This is no pot shot on any of them. It’s just the truth.

Re: Thoughts on the QB’s.

Shager was pretty junk today. Real junk exactly. Still better than Yellen. Got to agree with that. Yellen couldn't get 100 yds against a FCS school. Hope TC sticks with Schager for the rest of the year. He can't improve if he's always getting pulled. I agree too. That’s the problem. He and his rece...

Re: Keep Governor Ige away from Hawaii football

As for the final act of a lame duck governor. Interesting things can happen during the final months of he being in office. And if one of those things is about shovels in the ground to get the stadium started, I'm all for it. Im' not going to fault Ige for doing this. All other frustrations with the ...

Re: Keep Governor Ige away from Hawaii football

I'm no Ige apologist, but i think there are some factors and resources available now that were not available in previous years. Because of that, I cannot fully buy into the "he had 8 years" thing. He is a lame duck governor whose term is coming to an end very soon. Whether it is pardons, l...

Re: Pavihi and Tufaga TD High five.

Just watched the play and was surprised they didn't get flagged for it. With the somewhat recent rule changes, that could've gotten his TD taken away. Glad they're having fun, but they need to save that for when they're in the endzone. I hear you. But what would they have been flagged for? Unsports...

Re: Looking a little grim

...and that is why JUNE JONES was the answer. Immediate return to an exiting brand of football and connections in this state and football world that Matlin and all UH naysayers could only dream about. Oh well. No can cry now. Gotta support Timmy and the brand of football UH administrators wanted.

Re: Pavihi and Tufaga TD High five.

I bet the coaches tell them to cut that BS out. True. There was no one around, but some speedy WR could come from the blind side. Considering ball security has been a big issue for everyone, that's too early to celebrate. Well deserved for #1 Pavihi. nah. That was not BS. Nor was there any WR's any...
