How can you say that the UH looked good when they gave up 500+ yards of total offense to Fresno?
Auspicious One says-UH looked good, had the appearance of, but did not say UH was good.
If UH was good they would have scored 3 more touch downs and make me lose $$$.

Is there some reason that these young young men can't enjoy a hard fought win, without all the talk of gambling. What a shame. I was at the game. and I can tell you, Hawaii EARNED that win. If you can't say anything nice, don;t say anything at all.

Great win coach Mac and staff.

How come the only one giving the UH Defense any credit is the Fresno Coach?
Come on gang...including the press...the defense had at least the same if not the biggest part in winning the game. Give credit where credit is due.
It was a TEAM win in all phases; Offense, Defense and Special teams.

This was a game for the gamblers to make money and that is the sad part of sport contests. No money if you picked Fresno to win because they were heavily favored. Pick UH with 1-3 record and you make money by defying the odds. From the gamblers point of view we will make sure Fresno will lose and let Hawaii play its normal game. Outcome, UH wins,gamblers win and a whole bunch of Fresno backers are crying foul.
UH 22 point under dog, Fresno could have won the game and still threw the game on points think about it!!

1 Special Teams TD and 2 Offensive TD's on a short field is nothing exciting. UH could do nothing else effectively on offense.
Okay what's your point???
I thought so, nothing.. You just like to rag on UH or anything to do with Hawaii.
You're just a borne loser, couldn't make it in Hawaii and continue to blame everybody but yourself..
Hawaii beat the #22 ranked team on the field....
you can't handle it and keep whinning like that white trash cheerleader, motormouth.

Fresno State is in no way a top 25 team and their lousy play allowing Hawaii to "ewin" showed it. This is why no WAC team should ever be in the top 25. They have such weak schedules. We saw that last year with jones' gimmick offense that was successful against weak competittion played mainly in home games getting wiped out in a legitimate bowl game. Hawaii is done as far as legit. bowls are concerned. They just do not comepete with real teams.

I made my point, but you are too dumb and angry to see it. Nothing about your comments made any sense.

Your misdirected anger is very obvious to everyone who reads your comments. You make personal attacks based on assumptions against someone you don't know. You went from talking about sports to personal attacks in a news forum!

You need a hug and some serious help and I really hope you get it before your pent-up anger comes out in the form of domestic violence, road rage, employee rage, or a random act of violence against a white person.

I'm dead serious about you getting help.

Oh how you have disappointed Bronco Nation with another senseless WAC loss to the University of Hawai’i. A game that saw you turn the ball over 6 times, have a kickoff return for a touchdown and a missed field goal in overtime. We are obviously disappointed because we saw November 28th as a truly historic game for the WAC. The possibility of 2 highly ranked WAC opponents going head to head for a chance at a BCS Bowl game is now gone. However, we are no longer surprised by your lack of focus.

When our beloved Broncos joined the WAC in 2001, we saw you as the class of the Western Athletic Conference. Always striving to live up to the standards you have set. However, after last night I think that you need to live up to the standards Boise State has set. Boise State has 5 WAC Championships in 7 years to your 0 WAC Championships.

I believe it starts with your lack of proper goal setting. Boise State sets a specific goal each year to win the WAC, while your goal is anyone, anytime, anywhere. Your goal seems to be a bit broad. While on the surface it seems that it means you will play anyone, anytime, anywhere, but my interpretation is you are stating you can lose to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Boise State has a conservative schedule, which may include two non-conference BCS games. Granted over the last 7 years Boise State has a .286 winning percentage in those types of games, but a win over Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl still feels so sweet. On the other hand Fresno State we applaud your non conference BCS winning percentage of .462 over the last 7 years. You have played 26 BCS teams winning 12 of those games. However, it is the WAC winning percentage that causes Bronco Nation concern. You see, while Boise State has a .930 winning percentage against WAC opponents over the last 7 years, Fresno State you have amassed .684 winning percentage. Though a respectable percentage for most middle of road WAC teams, it is undoubtedly a disappointment to Bronco Nation and your very own Redwave fans.

What’s more, is that typically after losing games like you have this past Saturday you usually tank the rest of the season. Take 2001 for example, after cracking the top 10 you faced first year WAC team, Boise State. Led by David Carr, you lost to us that year and followed it up with loss to Hawai’i a week later. You then ended the season with a loss to Michigan State in the Silicon Valley Bowl. You went from BCS buster to non-BCS loser. In 2005, off to an 8-1 record, beating BSU that year, you narrowly lost to USC. After which you finished the season losing to 3 games in a row to Nevada, La Tech, and Tulsa. Also what is up losing to Utah State in 2006? Finally after starting the 2008 season off with a win over Rutgers you lose to Wisconsin 13-10 at home, escape Toledo with a 1 point double overtime win, out last UCLA and now lose to Hawai’i.

So Fresno State as you struggle to make it through another disappointing season please set a goal to win the rest of your games so November 28th can have some meaning to Boise State and Bronco Nation. Doing so will curtail a some of our disappointment in you.

Is it true that ducks go crashing to their deaths onto your Smurf Turf because they think it's a lake and try to land there? Or is it just an urban legend?

Do you actually think before you post?
Do you comprehend what you read or do you just hate losing?
Westside was correct in predicting the win and you are just stuck on Dis N Dat of what happened..
Fresno lost, UH won. Get over it, move on. La Tech is next. Bet, bet, bet!!!

The D gave up 500+ yards of offense including almost 300 yards on the ground and you give them credit for winning this game? I don't get that.
UH has won me WAAAAAY more $$$$ this season than this it has lost me on this one game. Just check their record against the spread.
I will continue to bet against them te rest of this season and continue to make truckloads of $$$$ while you struggle to make your mortgage payments in that overvalued piece of crud cookie cutter house in Mililani. LOL!
You're so full of it, loser. Living @ the Y in Vegas, working night shift @ the Cali washing dishes... No shame, actual winners don't spout off like you, they just win and say nothing.
Hawaii is a better place without losers like you who like throw the act but got nothing to back it up except, talk!
