Does ESPN broadcast to the island? Honestly do you watch football that doesn't deal with Hawaii. Yes, ESPN has called this our rebuilding year. But notice ESPN called that Boise St. Secondly this will be the 3rd time was have won the conference title in a "rebuilding year".
I know this concept might be hard for you but sometimes a win is not really a win. Example when you beat up on, scratch that, when you slip past 2, 1-AA teams in one year and go undeated high school recruits see you get a preseaon ranking and only move up 8 spots. Where as somebody like... Kansas goes undefeated and moves up to #2 from not being ranked. Or in more relevant Boise St terms, Boise St get BCS consideration with 1 loss and in a rebuilding year.
Again, find Pearl neck boy, and go to the local elementry school; you to could learn somthing about trash talking. REMEMBER, you are only there to listen, HANDS TO YOURSELF!
A win is not really a win? Your fans are the very same folks that point out your bowl win is a win, and that you should have been national champions last year, despite having a SOS of 100. .And I don't think I'm following your logic. As stated during the game. UH has a SOS of 119 (pathetic, although part of the reason is for teams backing out), and BSU had a SOS of 118. 63-6, 66-10 is NOT squeaking by 1AA teams, so don't know what the heck you're post is trying to say. Do you know WHY KANSAS is up there? it's SOS. Margin of victory also does not count as much as Win/Losses. Did you want to see UH run up the score, and score a last touchdown at the end? If you're going to say that yesterdays game was a fluke, then following the same logic I'd have to say the Oklahoma game was a fluke. I know you don't want to use that logic. Stop with the UH hating, cause basically, you guys are putting down your own competition, which means, you've been the champions of the cupcake division. I'm very surprised, cause UH fans actually wanted BSU to do well. Whereas BSU fans seem to want to put down UH, and invalidate the WAC. You guys are using the EXACT SAME Arguments to invalidate UH, as the EXACT SAME Arguments you used a year ago to justify why you should be national champions.

Hopefully UH wins out, and gets into the BCS. And I hope that the BSU fans are hoping the same thing, because not only does the WAC get a share, but it would validate the WAC and give them more respect. PARTICULARLY if Hawaii gets a WIN in a BCS game. Should they win, that will be two times in a row, where a WAC team gets in and wins. If Hawaii gets in and wins a BCS game, it would throw off the whole BCS system, and you would see the media debating the whole thing. Actually, all fans who are in the WAC(not just BSU), should all be rooting for the WAC to get better. The WAC has been weak for a lot of years, and thus has the bad reputation. Hopefully all the WAC teams that have made a bowl game this year do well in their bowl games against other conferences.
Realistically, BSU I don't believe had a chance at the automatic bid, even if they beat UH(due to SOS, and current ranking). So this win for UH was actually the best chance for a WAC team to make it to a BCS game. It would really shake things up if two different WAC teams in a row, win BCS games.

Hawaii played one hell of a game. it was close back and forth for a bit but have to hand it to you guys, you pulled it out, good job, now BSU goes to the H-bowl, at least we get to see them at home one more time, and hopefully UH goes on to a BCS bowl. Win one , the wac is behind you.

post game impressions:
Well people , I was at the game. It didn't sell-out. Took FOREVER just to find a parking spot. I had to travel over to Ford Island (where the USS Missouri is docked) actually it was very intersting parking on a military installation. But gawd, the whole area around Aloha Stadium was paralized due to the lack of parking. Started about 2pm with all the early tailgating otnthe stadium parking adn continues on. They say the Washington game is also "sold out along with BSU. I honestly don't know how Oahu will endure these upcomming games.
A logistical nighmare! I can't see people doing this for seven or eight home games every year.
At kickoff only about 60% of the stadium was seated. I estimated that 45,000 people eventually saw the game. Not a sellout.
Typical UH. Very strong start. 21-0 in the first quarter and then a special teams collapse and give up a TD return of a kickoff. Let Fresno get back in the game despite FSU mistakes and eventually UH survives with a 37-30 win. LOL
Seeing Colt get leveled was a surpise, but the UH O-line was allowing FSU penetration after halftime.
btw I was up in the 5th level nosebleed scetion GG row 26 seats 20 & 21 with my wife.($38 seats)
Mach5motorfart, stop lying, you were'nt here. Though it sounds convincing, I still say your lying. You have just shown how the internet can be a main source of virtual traveling. "LOL", Mach5motorfart.

DaBruddah, you're not even a decent e-thug.I was there for the FSU game. You're just another new UH bandwagon newbie fan. I've spanked you weeks ago and you ran away until now. Just enjoy the accomplishments of others on the UH football team.
