"I saw the fullback, he's looking directly at me," Soares said. "I knew he was coming my way, so I already knew. I went with all my power and all my might and I went crush him. I heard him when I hit him, I heard him -- he felt it."

Been reading posts on this board & the one on the UH ESPN board the past year but this is my first post here. I've had to follow UH games via the internet the last few years in Japan and now here. (I had fun watching the midnight kick-offs last season). Went to the Sugar Bowl this past year and have tickets to Gainsville later this month (in the UH section of course), looking forward to partying with the ohana once again.

Aloha everyone,
I've been on this board for some time now, but never formally introduced myself. I've been a UH fan as long as I've been interested in football. I attended the 92 Holiday Bowl, sat through every home game during the VA error--i mean era, and almost cried when JJ became our HC.

I am very, very excited w/ Coach Mack at the helm, and I'm one of his biggest fans. I'm really looking forward to this season. Being in Vegas, I'm gonna try to go to the OSU, Boise, Fresno, Utah State and NMSU games. Like the old K5 commercials: "I'll be there!"

Well, I'm not a UH fan, but I thought I would throw myself in here, since I aspire to move to Hawaii in the next few years. Here goes:

Name: Chris
School's attended: Daytona Beach, FL Seabreeze High (97), University of Florida (01), University of California (07).
Affiliation to UH sports: My favorite team, the Gators, will be battling the Warriors this weekend. Also, UH seems to meet (and beat) UF's women's vball team late in the NCAA tourney with some regularity.
Sports: I was a wrestler in high school, but volleyball and basketball are my main sports.
Location: Gainesville, FL, soon to be Hawaii (hopefully)
Work: College biology instructor. If you hear of such a job in Hawaii, let me know!
Favorite quote: Frank Drebin, when accepting an award for 1,000th drug dealer killed: "Thank you, but in all honesty I backed over the last two with my car. Luckily, they turned out to be drug dealers."
Favorite UH sports moment: I'd have to say watching Colt Brennen turn his life around and rewrite the record books.

Careful, Wyokie, you may end up on the PETA hit list as that could be construed as an insult to wolves... (BTW, was that an "unbias" comment?)
