Spring in my step … Our version of “Cover 3″

March 29th, 2008

I have to admit I used to hate spring football practice. I always thought of it as a waste of time.

But after covering UH football as the Star-Bulletin’s beat writer the past seven seasons, I’ve grown to appreciate its value — especially for the players and coaches.

Everyone can easily tell who the very best players are on a football team, but even for the trained eyes of a Greg McMackin or a Ron Lee, it takes time to evaluate most players and determine how they will mesh as part of a team.

And for the players, fall camp isn’t always enough time to make an impression, or to learn, by doing, the offensive or defensive schemes.

With a new coaching staff and nearly every job on offense up for grabs, these next few weeks will be even more interesting than the spring of 2005, when the search for Tim Chang’s replacement began, and the Warriors began developing the core of a team that went 23-4 in 2006 and 2007.

So with that mindset, I’m genuinely looking forward to the start of spring practice Monday.


Jason Kaneshiro, Brian McInnis and I ran triple coverage on Greg McMackin and grilled the coach at Eastside Grill the other day. Between bites of, appropriately, “Mack” salad (double-order), the new UH coach sated our hunger for information. The result is a two-part Q and A, first part tomorrow. Our Sunday coverage on the eve of spring practice also includes Jason’s feature on the Lee brothers (I think our page designers are going to use some cool photos from their Kaiser days), capsules on each position group, and sports editor Paul Arnett’s column on the changing of the guard.

    I would like to show my thanks to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular setting. As a result of surfing through the search engines and seeing techniques that were not powerful, I believed my entire life was over. Living devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve fixed by way of the article is a critical case, and ones that might have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn’t noticed the blog. The competence and kindness in touching all the things was important. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I can at this point relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for your specialized and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to propose your web sites to anybody who wants and needs support on this subject.
