Hawaii Now Ranked In All 3 Football Polls!

The University of Hawaii Warriors football team is now ranked 23rd in the AP poll, 24th in CNN/USA Today, and 25th in the BCS poll released earlier today after last nights 42-35 pulsating win over Purdue of the Big 10 Conference.
This was easily the most exciting game of the season thus far as all of Hawaii's other wins were blowouts.
Colt Brennan, Hawaii's QB has now thrown for 51 touchdowns this season and is only 4 away from breaking the all time record of 54 set by the University of Houston's David Klingler. Colt and the Warriors have two games left this year, with Oregon State being Hawaii's next opponent this Saturday night. Yes, the same Oregon State team that beat USC, and the same team that Boise State trounced earlier this year.
If you haven't seen Brennan play yet this year, you'll get to see him in action as the Warriors game with Oregon State will be shown live on ESPN with a 7:05 HST kickoff. If you're on the East Coast, you may have to tape it as it wont start until 12:05am your time.
Hawaii has accepted an invitation to play in the Hawaii bowl on Christmas Eve, here in Honolulu and it looks like the opponent will be UCLA.
In an interview on our local news this evening, Hawaii coach June Jones said that Hawaii is playing so well right now, that he thinks they would beat Ohio State! (I'm not sure I would go that far  Smile )

Aloha,
HALFA

GO WARRIORS!!


Don't mess with Texas....We just may do that!

Colt Brennan is insane. I think that if that Boise game, or even the 'Bama game had been played now instead of the beginning of the season...the Warriors would be undefeated right now.
I'm winning money every week betting on them...didn't bet on the Purdue game though.

So I live in Fresno and I am of course a Fresno State Bulldogs fan. I was there at the Hawaii and Fresno State game a few weeks ago. Sitting in my nice "Red Seats" at a few rows higher then field level and saw Colt in action. Killed us! Dang that guy is good! I actually applauded after the game to Hawaii's great game. They deserve to be ranked by BCS. Now Hawaii next year needs to get a bit better and get out of their own bowl game and into something a little tougher.

In my opinion...Hawaii vs some of the top teams I could see them beating

Hawaii vs Rutgers....Hawaii
Hawaii vs Michigan....Hawaii
Hawaii vs Texas...Hawaii

I still see Ohio State being Hawaii as well as USC

Good job Warriors! Do something good for us in the WAC (seeing that Fresno State screwed us this year  Sad )

Fresno State disappointed me as a valley native. That was a pathetic season all around, capped with losing to Utah State.
My Hurricanes were terrible, at least they shitcanned Larry Coker though.

Hawaii would play in a different bowl, but its too hard for their fans to make the mainland trip during the holidays, thus, the creation of the Hawaii Bowl. A game they will play in if they are eligible unless A. it disappears, or B. they get into a BCS game...something that could happen next season.

I Totally agree. Hawaii's offense is unstoppable now. They lead almost every statistical category offensively.

We all are! Hawaii's team has been a gambler's dream this season! They have covered the spread every week this season except this past weekend against Purdue, and even then, if you had bet the half, they easily covered that with a 17-0 lead after the first half.

Easier said than done. Hawaii, as well as the other WAC schools, are locked into 3 WAC Conference affiliated Bowl Games. The Hawaii Bowl, the MPC Computers Bowl in Boise, and I believe the New Mexico Bowl in Albuquerque, unless a WAC team is BCS Bowl eligible like Boise State is this year.
That said, if Colt Brennan returns for his senior season, he will have his entire offense returning as well, with the exception of a few linemen, and Hawaii has both Fresno State and Boise State at home next year, so go things may come our way. Michigan State has already pulled out of their scheduled game here next year, wanting no part of the pounding they would have received.

Actually, no. When Hawaii played in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego, back when the Holiday Bowl had a WAC affiliation, more than 25000 Hawaii fans ( myself included) made the trip to see the game against Illinois, which Hawaii won, btw, and vaulted them into the AP top 20 that year.
The Hawaii bowl was actually created a few years ago after Hawaii finished their season with a 9-3 record and was not invited to ANY bowl game, even after just smashing previously undefeated and #4 ranked BYU 72-45 on national TV. (I still have very fond memories of that game  Smile ) The NCAA in conjunction with ESPN, created the Hawaii bowl for Hawaii so that that would never happen again. I would much rather see Hawaii play a bowl game on the mainland again, as the Hawaii bowl doesn't feel much like a bowl game to me, more like another home game, with a more expensive ticket!

Now correct me if I am wrong, but wouldnt airlines usually lower fairs just a bit if they have massive fans wanting to travel to a certain destination? It seems like HP lowers fairs for big games to the cities they are played in. Just what I have noticed.

I thought San Jose had a bowl game. It was called the Silicon Valley Football Classic. Fresno State used to play in this game a lot as well as the San Diago one you mentioned later. Fresno State ended up leaving the bowl game in San Jose in which they bairly lost to Michigan State, beat Georgia Tech, beat UCLA, beat #18 Virginia and went to the Liberty Bowl I blieve it was called. This was last year before the fall of Fresno State at the end of the season (the close game against USC). I already forgot who they played! I believe it was Tulsa and Fresno State lost but I could be wrong on who they played.

Fresno State will need to prove themselfs next year. They will be loseing a few good players and they need to solve the Quarterback position. Norton and Branstater seem to be fighting for the starting job next year. I believe Norton will take it. Boise State will always be a tough school to beat. Fresno State was suppost to give them a run this year but we see what the outcome of that was.

Hawaii vs Fresno State: Hawaii
Hawaii vs Boise State: Boise State

Do you remember the game 3 years ago at Hawaii?? It was a joke the way MSU got treated by the WAC refs. Then do you remember the next year the spanking Hawaii got when they traveled to East Lansing?

Basically both teams are good and to travel that far for a 3 hour football game is not worth it.

With the new MSU coach I think they could take down Hawaii next year but is a waste of money and time for any team east of the Mississippi to go over there.

I think if Hawaii wants to see how they play against the big teams schedule some. Hawaii is win-less against top 25 teams and lost to 'bama. Probably the best team on that schedule. No diss to Boise St, but you need a harder schedule.

Basically I'm from the BigTen. I know and see the BigTen, Big East, SEC, Big 12, etc. with the bigs games each week. Hawaii might wake up in time to see the Pac10 games at breakfast and the SportsCenter highlights for lunch. Until their schedule comes with more teams out of the WAC...the Hawaii bowl in their backyard is all they'll see.

I agree. Hawaii needs to be playing a Notre Dame, Arizona, USC, Oregon, LSU, or something like this every year. Boise State is the same way. Fresno State I believe is the only team with a good mentality on taking things on. Challenging any BCS team to football and is willing to travel every single time. More BCS teams though the past few years have not wanted to play Fresno State because Fresno State had really good chances at beating them. Fresno State is a BCS killer...Hawaii is not IMO.

The WAC is becoming a division that is riseing up. Fresno State, Boise State, Hawaii, San Jose State, and sometimes Nevada are showing that they can play with the big boys. Maybe in the next 6 or 7 years you could see Fresno State and Boise State trying to get out of the WAC deserving a bit for the PAC 10.

Yes, I do remember that game. I was there. 2 MSU touchdowns were called back due to holding penalties which TV replay's confirmed. MSU's coach Smith used that as his excuse as to why they were beat so soundly, and worse, has tried to convince other Big 10 coaches not to play games here.

Waste of time? Really? Funny how recruiters from Big 10 schools use the game at Hawaii to sell recruits on their great schedule, telling prospective players that if they sign with us, they'll get to go play in Hawaii, but when they actually do come here, they usually lose and then they blame the officiating, jet lag, distractions, etc. and then fans like you say it's a waste of time. I don't think the thousands of Purdue fans and alumni that made the trip to Hawaii this past week thought it was a waste of time. They got to see a GREAT game and spend a week in paradise.

Hawaii must play all teams in the WAC conference, so that takes away 8 games right there. We have scheduled top non-conference opponents each season (including USC and Wisconsin last year) but more and more teams are reluctant to come out here because they are afraid of losing, so Hawaii is going to their place. We opened the season at Alabama this year, and are starting off at Florida in 2008.
Hawaii travels longer distances than ANY team to play games away from Aloha Stadium, but I don't here our coach whining about the long distances and jet lag.
If Colt and company come back next year, it will be Hawaii that breaks into the BCS party and not Boise State.

True, but there was the fight and ejection in addition, MSU was flagged a season high 16 times for 119 yards. Hawaii, going into the game as the second most penalized team in the WAC, had five penalties for 35 yards in a game it needed to win to secure a bowl berth.

Hmm...

But back to the point USC and Wisc both beat Hawaii last year and were sound football teams. Hawaii traveled to MSU and also lost in a beating.

When you said MSU bailed as to not get another beating in the 07 Hawaii game...I'm not sure 41-38 in Hawaii 2 years ago was a beating. More of a mystery.

Agree. Hawaii sucked last year! We were actually much more competitive when we played AT #1USC the year prior. And yes, Hawaii was soundly beaten by MSU last year. No excuses.

Again, you are correct, my anti-Coach Smith bias is showing here.  Smile
However, it is clear that teams from more prestigious conferences are backing away from playing up and coming teams from less prestigious conferences out of fear of losing as it really is a no win situation for them. They travel 10-15 hours to get here and then lose and everyone screams "you lost to a WAC team?" and if they win everyone says "so what!". This mindset will change when Boise State, Fresno State, and Hawaii continue winning and continue winning against top tier progams. It has happened in Louisville, West Virginia, and now Rutgers and it will happen out here too. We get one more shot this weekend with Oregon State.

So do you guys think that the addition of New Mexico State and Utah State made the WAC a better devision or not? I personaly think adding those two teams made the WAC for football worse. Now for other sports such as Baseball and Basketball it did bump it up a bit. More so for baseball.

Thanks! It should be a great game. OSU has 11 players from Hawaii. Their offensive line coach is Mike Cavanaugh, Hawaii's former offensive line coach that recruited our center, Samson Satele who is projected as a very early round NFL draft pick. Coach Cavanaugh's son attends high school here in Honolulu and plays football for one of our states best teams.

A little OT, but how in the world did Purdue lose $40,000 coming to Hawaii? That's according to Purdue's AD Morgan Burke. Purdue got roundtrip airfare for 125 people, 85 hotel rooms for 4 nights, transportation to and from the airport, hotel, practice, and game, and $50,000. What did they spend all their money on?

You are correct. It is hard because when you think of LA Tech you dont think WAC. Or at least I dont. I think of SEC for some reason. I think it would be nice if the teams you were playing were actually in the area you are at. Such as the PAC 10 I would like to see the Airizona schools out and the Fresno State and San Jose State put in it. Put the Airizona schools into the WAC haha. Totaly biased being a Fresno State fan. But seriously why do they make the WAC so big? Not enough schools to be able to play in the D1 level?

So is there any predictions on Hawaiis draft predictions? Many going into the draft? or are many of them planning on returning?

Low spread this week, with Hawaii opening as 8 point favorites over the Beavers of Oregon State.
That said, Hawaii has a chance next season to do some damage in the national scene...BCS anyone? Especially if they beat UFaG.

Never going to happen, but a noble idea. The 'Dogs and Bows and Broncos for that matter could all probably compete at that level. Who is to say though. I've heard that all three could possibly be heading to the MWC, but that rumor doesn't have real legs at the moment.

It weakened it in football, but both seem to be in the right direction. However, the WAC is the strongest non-BCS conference right now, so who is to say. In Basketball, I'd say it definitely improved, as teams like Tulsa and Rice were replaced with NMSU and USU who each have good bball teams, UTEP was a push.
Baseball....I think it adds more parity but that is it. Rice, a national powerhouse was lost, but that opened up the field more. USU doesn't play baseball, so Sacramento State is their placeholder.
All in all though, I think it made it better as it made it a more regional conference. Now, if LA Tech moved on to C-USA or the Sun Belt, and another regional team was added, things would be even better.

Well I think it made it better. I mean even when Rice was there, it was still a tough conference. Fresno State, Hawaii, Rice, Nevada at some aspects, were always going at it for the WAC title. Now with Rice gone, it just adds New Mexico State which is a great baseball team. These teams go at it every single year! With Fresno State playing teams like UCLA, Stanford, USC, bringing teams from the Mid-West and East Coast for the Johnny Quick Classic they show that they deserve to be on the road for Omaha.

Well I have heard this as well but I think with Utah State and New Mexico State it was the closing deal for the talks. I havent heard anything after the move was made. I know that Pat Hills dreams are to be part of the PAC 10. Will that happen? Not for another 10 years maybe if Fresno State proves itself. Does it deserve to be out of the WAC? Yes. As does Boise and Hawaii.

June Jones has been saying stuff like that ever since he returned to Hawaii in 1998. He predicted a Heisman Trophy for Timmy Chang and Top 25 rankings/major bowl games. I appreciate his passion for Hawaii football. If he keeps this up, Hawaii could be a sleeper in the future out of the WAC. Now, if they could just beat Boise State!
