Doh, San Ho bringing in their defensive starters again after TD with 2 point conversion. Two possession game with choke time. Praying for a turnover on the next Spartan possession.

Well, Timmy managed three wins in his first year as head coach. Same number of games his former employer managed to win in his first season.

I really wanted this win against SJSU but no can. Finished with 3 wins 10 loses, well maybe next season maybe Hawaii reaches 4+ wins with that tough schedule. What a bummer for the last game of the season.

What I don't get is local people, especially media guys, who have this weird man-crush for coach Brent Brennan. In 6 years he has 2 winning seasons and an overall 27-41 record, 19-28 in conference. If he posted those numbers at UH he would have been canned after year 2 or 3

My "I'm an outsider" theory....
Look at the guy's last name. His last name is very similar to a "local" legend's last name, doesn't it? That's why they "love" this guy.

As common as Brennan’s last name is, Colt and Brent were cousins.

Babooze calls by the suits (aloha shirts): ax Wagner and McMackin. Why? Each lost to superior teams and got paid well by Hawaiian standards. And yet, they both built excellent support staff and players. They both had winning records. One firing resulted in Navy getting our best assistant. The other resulted in two more assistants, soon to be winning-head-coaches, being axed. Each firing resulted in us enduring even longer years of abysmal losses by incompetent hires. Even weirder still, the McMackin firing was a result of him losing to Taylor Graham. TG had a winning record and yet got axed because he hurt some players feelings...or did he?

I don't know Dave Aranda personally, but...dang...he's a really good coach...and he was discarded by Norm Chow...and the Aloha Shirts. How many other MWC coaches can boast a National Championship? I think none. Oh yeah...maybe McMackin. Yeah...that's it. Tomey, Rolovich, Jones and that Navy coach could never aspire to achieve that.

For some strange reason I was getting pre-recorded phone calls from Brent Brennan asking me to attend SJSU football games which I let go to the answering machine from 2017 to 2020. I had no connection to SJSU and have no clue how they got my number. Maybe that's how he reached out to the public.

Would have been nice to win this one but maybe not realistic unless we were perfect and they were unlucky. Schager looked better but he didn’t get enough help from his receivers. Next year will be interesting and hopefully we can take a step in the right direction. I hope TC meets with enough success to justify keeping him on. The repeated pattern of UH coaches meeting with some success and then getting poached for more money is getting old. At least with TC there is a chance that he will stay and build on his success (if he can achieve it). I hope the new gov puts out a clear roadmap for the stadium soon after he takes office. Some may like going to games at Ching field and they’ve done the best they can with what they have - but for me it is not an FBS facility and going to games there has little appeal. Another offseason of transfer portal defections and no plan for a stadium and I think we will be in big trouble. Hopefully most players stay and there is better leadership for stadium development - is that too much to ask?

I didn't watch the game but I was listening to the broadcast along with the gamecast and they said on the radio that there was a QB draw where Schager took a slide for an 8 yard gain. Hearing this after watching the Michigan/Ohio State game where JJ McCarthy ran like a running back just made me think that Hawaii needs to look for a dual threat QB. This was a playing for pride game and it's disheartening to the other players and the fans not to see someone give it their all.

Hawaii receivers dropped how many balls?

And why couldn't the O-Line run block? SJSU stifled Hawaii's offensive strength and give them that credit.

SJSU allowed 36 sacks all season long but Hawaii could only get one of them. UH allowed 17 sacks all season long but Spartans got 3 of them.

A winnable game but a few misplays here and there did them in.

Peter Brady made Benedict Arnold a sympathetic figure when he was on our team who then became an enemy. Even The Bunch was making war references that might be politically incorrect now.
