Favorite home game you have been to? 2001 Fresno. Aloha Stadium was deafening. Knocked David Carr off his throne....ended Fresno's dream season.
Favorite road game you have been to? Haven't been to many. 2009 Washington St. Because UH won in a blowout. 2008 Oregon State was fun even though they lost. Great tailgating with the IslandSportsMedia folks.
Favorite game you have seen on TV? Tough. Want to say 2008 Georgia, because UH finally reached a coveted BCS Bowl game....but the result was terrible.
Favorite game you listened to on the radio? Washington 2007. Moving week....had to listen online.
Overall favorite? 2010 Nevada. Colin Kaepernick and Nevada could have gone to a BCS Bowl. Nevada will never reach that kind of plateau ever again, and they will ALWAYS know that when their chance came.....UH tripped them as they walked down the aisle. :D

Going back to Tomey's time (I think :-? ), we had a low-scoring affair with West Virginia. I think we lost that game, but I remember it as being exciting.

I can't be positive, but it might have been against a Temple team that Gary Allen went nutz. I recall bits and pieces of that game with great fondness.

Garrett's demolition of BYU twice is still pretty fresh.

Say Haynr8dr, I kinda remember this game too. Wasn't it also the first time the Bows were on network television?

Games for me:
UH vs Arizona St back in '79 i believe. Two plays 1) Muddle Huddle 2) Muddle Huddle reverse Jett jump pass.
Only been to 1 road game-'06 Fresno St. Moved to Central Cali and stayed for a year and my cuz being a Fresno fan, we went.
'01 Fresno St-Same cuz lived w/us a coupla yrs. We were supposed to go but my mom broke her hip at the start of season and I had to take care of her and so he went w/ a friend instead
'10 Nevada-Was at work and we had 2-3 radios going

Fav(s)-'04 Michigan St, wins over BYU

Home game would be this one. We gave them all they could handle. A lot of the players who played in this game went to the pros. We had really good defense back then. Not to mention one of the best coaching staffs. Tomey, Wagner, Ellerson, Fagg, Akina, Jones

Favorite home game you have been to? Either 2001 BYU or 2007 Boise St. BSU game was bigger, but BYU is BYU...always nice to beat them.
Favorite road game you have been to? 2008 Fresno St. Our first (and only) road win over a ranked team.
Favorite game you have seen on TV? 1989 BYU. Again...screw those guys.
Favorite game you listened to on the radio? Don't remember what year it was but I remember the game against Air Force where it seemed like we were done as they were driving deep in Hawaii territory with under 2 minutes to play and leading when Robert Lan recovered a fumble forced by Juaquin Barnett and returned it 90+ yards for the game-winning TD.

Overall favorite? 1989 BYU. I was young but it felt so good to have that long nightmare be finally over. It was also the first time in my life that Hawaii had beaten the hated Cougars.
