    Hi Cindy
    Happy New Year to you and your family….I guess it will be awhile before we start
    reading about the wahine’s, but i’ll keep checking……
    Thany You

    Already looking forward to next year but VB news gets thinner between now and spring so our local reporters need to get out there and beat the bushes looking for stuff to satisfy the appetites of the Wahine faithful,do reporters really beat the bushes looking for a story or does it happen only in the movies ?

    Just piecing together info from different places the teams on the 09 schedule sound challenging and should provide plenty of good entertainment for the fans. Hopefully Dave will come up with some spring matches .

    I’m interested in hearing what will happen with the WAC Tournament. Right now it’s scheduled to take place at Boise State but there are other statements out there one from Dave Shoji who said on one of his radio shows that the WAC coaches would be disusing the future of the tournament at the AVCA convention. In Sept. the WAC hinted that it may be suspended due to raising cost .Speaking of the last tournament I know that it broke the attendance record but did it become the first one to make a profit ?

    Recruiting for the 2010 season should also generate plenty of conversation during the off season with 5 or 6 scholarships available in 2010 . The mystery 09 transfer is already generating a buzz.How that rumor about a CSI player got started is interesting ,once again Volleytalk is the culprit.

    Dave should chalk up his 1000 win in 09 and I wish some AVCA member would nominate him for the Hall of Fame.

    While waiting on the 09 VB season my attention now turns to Wahine softball.

    Hau’oli makahiki hou to you too Cindy. Hope the holidays were good to you and your ‘ohana.

  • Cindy Luis January 1, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    DM will try to stay on top of things. I’m doing men’s volleyball in 09. We’ll see what happens with the WAC tourney. I think it will be in Boise in 09 but in Las vegas in 10.

    when everyone gets back, i’ll check on if the wac tourney made money.

    happy new year.

    Happy New Year to you as well Cindy! You truly helped make this past Women’s volleyball season better. I will be looking forward to your articles and extra posts on the Men’s season now.

    One question, will there be anything like a VB Guide for the Men’s team as you did for the Women’s? Reading those types of special edition prints and viewing the pictures in them is so much fun.

  • Daphne Moon January 2, 2009 at 7:08 am

    I was beating my own bushes this morning Cindy.Amanda Simmons transferring to Louisville per Rich Kern.com

  • Cindy Luis January 2, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    Icon, sorry to say, no men’s vb guide. There isn’t the interest, from what I’ve been told, from upper management to try to sell ads that help pay for it. Tough time to sell more ads during the holiday season. We don’t do one for men’s-women’s basketball either.

    And, DM, I emailed you personally but want to thank you publicly for the news on Amanda. Rich usually lets me know things but …

    Happy New Year.

  • icon January 5, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Thanks Cindy. At least from what I gathered, you asked and would’ve done it if gotten the O.K. to do so.

    By the way, looking forward to reading the first Men’s article for the season from you. I gather it will be out some time before Thursday. I also hope Frank and Wekell quiting the team and Morehouse deciding not to play this season (according to The Advertiser) had nothing to do with Mike Wilton and his boot camp tactics. If so, I truly wish UH would do something about it. Hard to accept they might have left because they didn’t get the time required when running up Frank Street (I’ll never understand that tactic for volleyball).

    Again, thanks Cindy!

  • Cindy Luis January 6, 2009 at 2:46 pm

    Icon, I’m not quite sure about the reasons for the three leaving. I know there have been academic issues in the past with a number of guys but I don’t want to speculate on this being the case for the first two you mention. As for Morehouse, can tell you he was not in shape during fall, had gained some weight (I should talk). It was a surprise to me because Wilton said during last season that if he were the type of coach to burn a redshirt year in the middle of the year like some coaches, Sam would have been the starting setter. Have heard both that he’ll be back and that he won’t.
    Wilton does what he does and is pretty open about what he expects from players. Recruits know that coming in.

  • icon January 6, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    Thanks Cindy.

    I guess my next question concerning Morehouse is opened to anyone that would know the answer to. The question is, if Morehouse doesn’t play this season, and plans on next season instead, does that mean his Freshman year wasn’t a redshirt year for him and this year will be his redshirt season? In other words of what I am getting at is, does that mean Morehouse will now only have 3 seasons to play for UH?

  • jr67 January 6, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    You only have 5 years from the date you graduate high school to complete your 4 years of eligibility–with exceptions made for military service, etc. So yes, by skipping this year Morehouse will loose a year of eligibility. His final year of eligibility to play at UH or any other college is 2012.

  • Cindy Luis January 7, 2009 at 2:17 pm

    thanks jr67. you beat me to it. his playing clock stops if he goes into the military a la Kyle Klinger or goes on a church mission as Hiram Thompson did.
    heard something about Sam going to a JC so if he plays there this season he has three left since he was a qualifier coming out of high school. If he had been a non-qualifier, he’d have to stay for two, get his AA, then would be eligible to transfer to a four-year school… as Aneli Cubi-Otineruu did. Aneli used her second year as a ‘red shirt’ year at CSI so after receiving her AA she had 3 years left to play at UH.

  • icon January 8, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Thanks both jr67 and as always, Cindy.
