Same deal: Anyone who hits it on the nose gets a free lunch.

Rocking on to Boulder

>> It’s 4 a.m. in Las Vegas, which means it’s time to head to the airport and get on a plane to Boulder, Colo. … Just going there for the day to interview some of Hawaii’s opponents in Saturday’s game at Colorado.

>> Watched Greg McMackin, Bobby Curran and Aaron Custodio do the Call The Coach Show at the Suncoast lounge area. Thought there’d be more UH fans here to watch it — then I remembered the game is in Boulder, not Las Vegas.

>> Yesterday was laundry day; went 24 hours in Las Vegas without gambling.

I’ll check in later either from Boulder or when I return.

RGM to Saskatchewan

Former Hawaii receiver Ryan Grice-Mullen has agreed to a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and is on his way to join the Canadian Football League team.

RGM, who previously played in Canada, was cut by the Miami Dolphins in the preseason.

We just returned from UH’s football practice at Palo Verde High. The 2 1/2-hour long session started out sluggishly, but coach Greg McMackin agreed that last 2 hours were crisp.

Alex Dunnachie may be the Warrior most looking forward to playing in the high mountain air of Boulder, Colorado, this weekend. His punts were extremely long and high at practice today.

His favorite two words are “hang time,” and he said them when I mentioned playing at Colorado on Saturday.

Arriving Las Vegas

The Warriors and their coaches and support staff have  arrived and  will begin preparations for Saturday’s game at Colorado. Stephen Tsai and I arrived around noon today.

Freshman David Graves will be coming in from Hawaii to take the place of the injured Spencer Smith. Stephen has been told that Graves, normally a quarterback, will be moved to safety. I don’t think it’s a permanent move, but we’ll see.

Some of the Warriors performed a haka at Times Square last night (or maybe it was this morning).

Hawaii-Army: in-game notes and comments

UH was near perfect the first two series in taking a 14-0 lead. No first downs yet for Army. Two touchdown passes for Bryant Moniz.

Army got some momentum now, sacking Bryant Moniz and getting good field position at the UH 46.

First quarter ends with 9 offensive plays for Army and no first downs.
