  1. A lot of Hawaii kids transferred to mainland schools for exposure during the last two years since the high school football seasons were cancelled for a while. So, a lot of kids lost their junior and senior seasons. Can't evaluate games that aren't played.
  2. Kapaa is off the beaten path from Honolulu, but it looks like Kawika is holding his own in these short clips.
  3. After what Zak Hill did to the University of Hawaii in 2016, I'm really not surprised he was involved in some shenanigans at ASU. Then-UH coach Nick Rolovich (yes, that Nick Rolovich) hired Hill in 2016 as UH's OC and QBs coach. He left after 48 days to become Boise State's co-OC and QBs coach. It was terrible timing since he left 7 days before LOI day and didn't do UH's recruiting any favors. Losing his chance at the SEC? Too bad, guy. Karma will bite ya.
  4. I found the pic of Otis and me and my friend at the Natty! I'm on the left. "If I were you, I'd be..." "Leaving! What a good idea." "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!" "She was going to make a pot for me..." "You're all worthless and weak!" "Thank you, sir! May I have another?" I need to stop.
  5. At the Natty in Phoenix against Auburn, I met Otis Day at our hotel. He looks pretty much the same as he does in the movie. Pic to come if I can find it. "Son, fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go though life." "Can you guess what I am now?" "Is that a pledge pin??? On your uniform???" "He can't abuse our pledges like that. Only we can abuse our pledges." "Welcome back to the Dexter Lake Club! We'd like to do a tune for you entitled Shama-lama-ding-dong. Now, hit it."
  6. The UH job is a tough one and in my opinion, will likely attract either an up and coming coach with ties to Hawai'i or an established coach with ties to Hawai'i who doesn't need the money. Timmy Chang? Rich Miano? June Jones? Tony Tuioti? Some assistants from UCLA? Graham was only making $800,00/yr. UH doesn't have the cash to be competitive with Power Five schools. And has to pony up thousands in travel subsidies to visiting teams. The off-campus stadium was condemned and a new one is supposed to be built. Though with the politics around here, who knows when that will happen. In the meantime, there's a small 9,000 seat stadium on campus that the governor has only recently begun allowing spectators at less than capacity because of COVID. In addition, a new coach will have to deal with a meddling legislature https://www.khon2.com/sports/local-sports/another-call-for-investigation-on-uh-athletics-by-senate-committee-on-ways-and-means/ and a decimated team with about 22 players in the transfer portal or already transferred. It's a mess.
  7. Late to the party (what else is new being 2 - 5 hours behind everyone ) but I'm sure you were all waiting for the weather report here. It's 71 degrees at 8 am with blue skies and white fluffy clouds. And a bonus rainbow! Love to see the pictures of snow. Miss the Northwest and seeing Duck games in person. Happy holidays OBD!

  9. Here are the (summarized) details of Coach Lanning's contract, presented to the U of O Board of Trustees for ratification.
  10. LaMike james @LaMichaelJames I learned from the best, I'm available @CoachDanLanning #goducks
  11. I agree 100%. Wherever this guy goes in the Pac, recruiting violations follow. Peterson didn't retain him at UDub after Sark left for U$C. When Sark tried to hire him, $C admin said no because of the allegations he paid for a recruit's tutoring and that he was "steering" kids he was then recruiting for UDub to $C (while employed at UDub) and while the $C offer was pending. Allegations he did that at Cal before leaving for UDub too. Wilcox was considering bringing Lupoi from Alabama back to Cal because Lupoi's a Bay Area guy but ultimately decided not to. He may be a great recruiter, but has he stopped doing things which will bring scrutiny and/or NCAA enforcement? Is the risk worth the reward?
  12. I can't remember where I heard it, but word was that Joe Salave'a was on campus in Miami, perhaps checking out the program? Lanning might be anticipating MC poaching Salave'a. FWIW, I like Joe, think he's a good DL coach, and I hope he remains at the U of O. I met him at the Polynesian FB Hall of Fame dinner in Waikiki a few years ago and had a good conversation about Oregon football.
  13. From GoDucks.com, it will be live-streamed on Twitter, FB, and Youtube. "Lanning will be officially introduced at a press conference at 2:00 p.m. PT on Monday in the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex. The press conference will be streamed live on the Oregon Football Twitter and Facebook pages, as well as the GoDucks YouTube page."
  14. This is a crazy season in the Pac - so many changes
  15. According to 24 7 Sports' Brandon (didn't get his last name, might be Huffman) on Twitter Spaces last night, an offer was extended to Kenny Dillingham and he is expected to make a decision some time today.
