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.

    No Dave…it’ll be a break out game for several of the players on both offense and defense. First of all, Colt will remind everyone why he is our choice for the Heisman. The Sports writers and talking heads will be babbling away about the numbers he will run up today. The receivers will all want a piece of that action. The running backs will be keeping the pressure off of Colt by slipping past the defense for record gains.

    On Defense, our guys will have superior numbers in all categories and Soares will be able to make his impact statement…finally!

    Special teams will be dictating the flow of the return men, and each of our guys will vandalize the Vandals for additional yardage. My predicted final score will be a mericiful 77-0 because the 3rd team will be charged with running the clock down in the final 5 minutes of the game. That is, after Inoke passes for the 10th and final TD of the night.

    Go Warriors!

    Dave – How’d we do with injuries? RGM? John Fonoti?…

    Hope all are OK.

    Too early to tell with RGM’s knee. Fonoti was smiling coming off the field, so that’s a good sign. Mouton tweaked his other knee, but it doesn’t look bad. Colt rolled the ankle on the first-quarter sack. We’ll update tomorrow.

    Gulp…I had to eat some humble pie with my poi today. My boys didn’t quite make the 77-0 splash I thought they would. A win is a win? Nah…not so. At least 48-20 was enuff to beat the spread, so I’m good with that. Respect for our guys will have to wait until the Boise game. Lasting respect will come when the final game with U-Dubbya goes into the record book.

    Dave it looked like some of the players had problems with their footing.

    What did Leon hurt early on in the game?

      The suface was quite soft. Kealoha Pilares said it ws difficult making cuts. I think the players still prefer it to what was there before though. Didn’t catch the Wright-Jackson injury … he went back in the game later so couldn’t be majore. Ryan Grice-Mullins went out early with a knee but came back a play later and scored at TD.

    Thanks Dave.
