A bit too much speculation in this story.
It is what it is.

I do hope the awareness of what Brennen gave to Hawaii with staying for his senior year, finishing school, then moving on will be passed on the next several generations.

Dave get over it. Yes Colt is the best UH football player ever. And I would agree with some of things like Colt Day, if they won the Sugar Bowl and/or he won Heisman Trophy. People in Hawaii still like/love Colt and want him succeed in the NFL. Anything could happen in the draft look at Devon Bess. The NFL draft board told him he could be a 2nd rounder then goes undrafted. He's played a lot more than Colt. I find it hard to believe that Colt would be a lot better position than 3rd string on a mediocre team by leaving a year earlier.

Indeed, Colt should get a chance to play. I'm hoping Miami trades him away from Washington. Washington is so convinced that Jason Campbell is the Man. I say get off of that sinking ship. Look at how well many of the rookie QB's are doing. Flacco, Sanchez, Ryan, Roethlisberger, Cutler, Stafford. I think Colt could do well also, he needs a chance. I think you grow old and develop problems sitting on the bench. Miami, please trade for Colt!

Hard to trade away an injured loser like Colt. Pineapple brains.

The University of Hawaii has had many great players go on to do even greater things in the NFL. Many of them native sons, some of them adopted sons like Colt. I've watched every UH game for the past 33 years. Can't think of a single game that I missed, even if it meant not going to a wedding or a family birthday party. Without a doubt, Colt Brennan is the best player I have ever seen wear our uniform. His number should be retired, he deserves at least that. Many, many people in our state will always remember the excitement of his last two years here. He will always have a home here and will always be regarded as a native son.

Go Warriors!

So retire his number! And give it to June Jones.
