    Default What? Nobody's ready for some football?

    Sheesh, the season starts tonite against what should prove to be a worthy contender vs our 'new' UH team, and all's quiet in here HTville?

    Has nobody any pom poms?

    We start now to prove the pre-season skank rank of #5 in the WAC is pig grinds.

    Fans are just waiting to see after the first game if this prediction will turn out to be about right.

    Have to admit, I didn't even know there was a game until someone mentioned it on Twitter.

    "Worthy contender"?!?? A division 1-AA team like Central Arkansas?!? And to boot, we barely beat 'em!
    Not an auspicious start to our season.
    I was thinking about watching the game on PPV last night... until I saw the $55 price tag.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    After the first game, it looks like it will be a .500 season. I hope it will be 7 wins and 6 losses, and an invitation to the Hawaii Bowl.

    Sports Illustrated predicts 4 wins, 9 losses.

    Considering that Navy (next to last UH opponent) damn near beat Ohio State yesterday (a 2-pt conversion attempt for a tie was picked off and run back for a safety to make the final score 31-27), I don't think that one should be considered a W.

    Default A win is a win...

    ...and even tho it wasn't pretty, especially in the 'oh no...' first half, there were some positives, like only 2 penalties = 5 yards total, the ability to make immediate and sophiticated changes, and the emergence of some surprise players like Green and Bryant.

    UCA was a good way to get a working look at our team and a chance to smooth out some wrinkles. We always start off slow and awkward, and even tho the Bears are a lower case squad, they are better than most in that bracket, no pushovers.
    I think we will greatly improve as the season progresses and will give a better showing each time. But the O line still needs to solidify and Alexander better get it together, and everybody needs to avoid injury all season for things to be as they should.

    I have my ti leaves crossed...

    Hawaii's offense can't have, "IT'S A FUMBLE" or they will lose against a team that's better than Central Arkansas.
    The offensive line is a head scratcher because they are seniors.

    That was a tough loss for UH against UNLV. The UNLV receivers were too tall for the UH dbs. Can't they do the flop move that basketball players use for the offensive foul?

    NO! I HATE football! And why is it suddenly on 5 days a week? It used to be Sunday and Mondays. Now it's Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    why do you HATE football? I know why I used to - I didn't understand it. Now, I love it!

    I just don't care for it. They play for like 30 seconds and then everyone stands around talking about it for 3 minutes. The clock keeps stopping, so the games last forever. And I get tired of listening to the commentators.

    Plus, I live in Texas. Everyone is ALL about football. I had to pretend to be interested in it for so long, I'm just over it.

    Then, you missed the close up camera shot of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones picking his nose after the NY Giants scored on a Pick 6 touchdown.

    Sorry I missed that special moment

    SG - thanks for answering my question so honestly. I feel really sorry for you but I guess I just don't understand not liking football. I watch games by myself, and would give a vital organ (well, maybe not - but close) to go to an actual NFL game! and it's a good thing I watch the games & understand what's going on - otherwise, I would have nothing to talk about with the folks in my office.

    I've tried. I've really tried. It is just not something that interests me, no matter how much I try to like it.

    I'll watch hockey though. It's faster-paced and fun to watch. I think that's my biggest problem with football. Just let them PLAY THE GAME. Quit starting and stopping and standing around talking. Everytime you think someone scores or makes a great play, there's 50 yellow flags on the field, and they have to review the play. Then the loser whines about it. It's a great representation of America, if you think about it!

    The good news is that UH scored 23 points.
    The bad news is that U of Idaho scored 35.

    Yay! Red River weekend is FINALLY over! No more nasty burnt orange all over the place. We're a family full of Aggies, so seeing Longhorns everywhere is sad. At least the Sooners are maroon too.

    And it's so sad having to watch all the football fans make jackasses out of themselves EVERY year when the game comes. At least there weren't any shootings this year.

    Will it be a moral victory for UH if they can keep the score close by losing to Boise St. by how much points?
