    As Nevada moved up into the national spotlight, this game sort of crept up on us. It's a winnable game for UH, and both teams are aware of this, which should make this game one of the best in recent memory. The prize for the winner: a meeting with Boise State. But that's another story.

    Here’s to at least one game off from KFVE’s creepy live “SD” mainland broadcasts. The Fresno State video quality was absolutely horrible for pay-per-view. I think it’s disgraceful they couldn’t spring for an HD truck and four hours of satellite time.

    Well, no excuses now that we are back at home with HD cameras and an HD (microwave?) truck. If I didn’t work on Saturday, I might’ve actually attended in person.

    We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.

    That's unacceptable. If they are going to hog ALL the air time for pay only, they have an obligation to at least provide top shelf viewing for ALL the games.

    Ticket sales latest?
    40 G, can they do it for #19 ranked (needing to be spanked) Nevada?
    Is Hawaii a sports town?

    Thumbs up Re: UH vs Nevada

    Cheeeeeeeeeeee-heeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! After one half of play, the Hawai‘i Warriors are STOMPING the 19th-ranked Nevada Wolfpack 17-0! Great job and hats off to to a monster UH defense capped off with a breathtaking interception by safety Richard Torres. But let’s not forget some great second efforts by the UH receiving corps on offense. Now it’s time to finish the job, since Chris Ault was already making some successful adjustments to the pistol going in to the second half...

    I don't believe it! Hawaii 27, Nevada 21.
    And I didn't subscribe to the PPV this year....

    That's OK! Keep on winning babe!
    I don't think they will beat Boise next week, but I wouldn't mind being surprised again!

    Since we have family visiting from Hawai`i at the moment, we listened to the game online last night. The UW was also playing last night, and the neighbors must have wondered why the timing of the cheers from our home didn't match theirs...

    Default The tale of two halves...

    Teams that win WAC championships don't play a good half and a bad half, and they don't win going into Boise. Nevada threw away 21 points and UH almost threw away another easy win, this time against an overated team. Boise is #2 in the AP poll after Ohio's fall, and next week is the last road bump on their road to stardom unless every UH player goes 110%, but I've heard cockiness so they still don't get it.

    Ron, why doesn't UH football try for admittance to PAC? I seriously think they could be competitive there. Its a no-brainer as far as travel is concerned. What am I missing?

    Just for the record, the Boise State game is not until Nov 6 - Utah State and Idaho are next on the Warrior march.

    If you mean the Pac 10, I doubt that the Pac 10 would be interested in Hawaii unless one or two of the teams drop out, which is very unlikely to happen. Hawaii is in the WAC, and the WAC is in trouble right now. Hawaii's best chances would be to remain in the WAC and try to revive it, or to become an independant.

    It was good to see that Fresno St. and Nevada-Reno got their comeuppance for thinking they're better than being in the WAC.
    The joy on the face of Coach McMackin's face is quite the contrast to a grouchy look of a Nick Sabin's team win.

    There was talk earlier about PAC expansion and wanting Arizona and A St., but I don't know where that went.

    This guy gives his take, with an alternative http://wholurks.blogspot.com/2010/08...ontenders.html

    If we can't get in with the big boys then independent is our only option unless the WAC slagg can buff up to a higher standard to make the WAC legit.

    IDK what you mean here--WAC expansion? Zona and ASU are already in the Pac-10

    There were rumblings that the Pac-10 (and other conferences, for that matter) were shying away from inviting Hawaii due to travel costs. Hawaii may need to try and defect to the MWC if the WAC doesn't right itself soon.

    Ah, that's where that went...
    But the MWC doesn't offer much better. Costs are always going to be the downer and getting worse each year, so we need to figure out now if it's worth it to the school to invest hugely and make a bold move or drop Fball.

    they've been there for around 20 years.

    You know the Big 8 is now defunct, right?

    Whew! Thanks, Kimo. Thought I had to juggle my work schedule. Don’t scare me like that, Nobu!

    Schools DO NOT apply for admittance to conferences; they have to be INVITED to join! There is ZERO interest by the PAC-10 in UH. Nor is the MWC interested in UH.

    I think the Warriors need to reach out to more Pac-10 teams. USC and Udub are a start, but they need to approach some of the other Big Names like UCLA, Stanford, & Cal. If they prove that they can compete against more of the Pac-10 teams, maybe the conference will make considerations. Personally, I think the Warriors would give a great fight against the Bruins. If not for some of the bad calls in the SC game, I think we could've spanked dem. Shoots!!!

    If UH wins against Utah St. tomorrow. The game at Boise St. will be on ESPN. If UH loses. It will be PPV for the Boise St. game.
