Highest rankings ever for UH football

September 30th, 2007

The University of Hawaii football team is ranked No. 15 today in the coaches poll (administered by USA Today), representing the highest rating in a major poll in the program’s history.
UH was No. 16 in the UPI poll in 1981, which was then the coaches’ poll.
The Warriors (5-0) are ranked 16th in the weekly Associated Press media poll, also released today. It is also UH’s highest ranking in that poll, surpassing a No. 18 ranking in 1981.
Hawaii is 16th in the Harris poll, also a high for the Warriors in that ranking.
UH beat host Idaho 48-20 on Saturday.
Please submit your picks (no pun intended) for plays of the game for Warrior Replay.
Ryan Grice-Mullins said today his knee is OK. “Just a bruise.”

John Fonoti has bruised ribs. No prognosis yet.

Arnett: UH is No. 16

September 30th, 2007

Star-Bulletin sports editor Paul Arnett voted 5-0 Hawaii at No. 16 in the Associated Press poll after Saturday’s action. It will be interesting to see where the Warriors (19th last week) show up after some attrition in the top 10 this week.

We’ll try to keep you posted between planes home today.

Game day … Hawaii vs. Idaho … Dome-ination?

September 29th, 2007

The team has left Lewiston, headed to Moscow and the Kibbie Dome — scene of Colt Brennan’s first win as a Warrior starter, two years ago. Hawaii won 24-0.

Anybody think this will be as close?
Jason Rivers is suited up, returning kicks and running routes. He looks a little tentative.
On the other side of the field, Deonte Jackson is also in full gear and going through warm-ups. Looks like he might be able to play despite the high ankle sprain.
Keoni Steinhoff, Adam Leonard and Ryan Mouton are game captains. Idaho wins the toss and elects to receive.

The place isn’t as full as we thought it would be, but it is rocking. One thing about Idaho, they know how to rock. The band does Emerson Lake and Palmer, AC/DC is a staple, and right now we’re getting Red Hot Chile Peppers.
