In the WAC, Big time. In PAC 10, avergage. In other BCS stadiums, average.
Over all, Hawaii, BCS average...
They're big time...WAY BETTER THAN BOISE....
Although Aloha Stadium is aging and may be rusty, at least it's trusty. Not only does the Stadium fit 50,000, but the way it is built resembles a NFL-type stadium, with it's stadium-type seating. The Yellow Section can be considered a nose-bleed section because of it's high elevation. Most college stadiums have bleachers that lack height. Aloha Stadium on the other hand can be a very intimidating place to play in for opposing teams especially when it's sold-out. If Hawai'i fields a good team for the 2008 season, we will see big-time football in a big-time stadium. We as fans just need to fill it up. Go Warriors!

Now, that's an idea that's already used in big stadiums on the mainland. For once Alice came up with a good one.

Just like the Sugar Bowl called "ALLSTATE" or the "TOSTITOS" in the Fiesta Bowl.

These private funds can help bring some monies to the state and help fix our aging Aloha Stadium. Now if only one big corporate giant would step up and lease Aloha Stadium for the use of their name during PRO Bowl, Hawaii Bowl, and WARRIOR games, all 50 states and US Territories will see these advertisements in their living rooms.

College Football Analysts were saying similar things after the Warriors lost in the Sugar Bowl. However all else being equal, what about the other BCS Bowl Game losers. USC blew-out Illinois. Virginia Tech got upset by Kansas. Oklahoma lost their 4th BCS Bowl Game in a row at the hands of West Virginia. And don't forget Ohio State lost their second consecutive BCS National Championship Game.

You must also keep in mind that the Warriors lost to a Georgia team that was on a hot-streak and finished the season ranked #2 in the Nation. Some analysts believed that Georgia should have been playing in the BCS National Championship. With QB Matthew Stafford and RB Knowshon Moreno returning next season, I predict that the Bulldogs will be the #1 team in the Country next season.

So does this all mean that teams such as Illinois, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Virginia Tech should never play in another BCS Bowl Game because they either got blown-out, upset or lost their 4th consecutive appearance in a BCS Bowl? Like I mentioned previously, at least Hawai'i lost to one of the best, if not, arguably the best team in the Nation. Go Warriors!

no hon..LSU was rated second going into their game. No..Hawaii did very poorly in the game. They were not relaly a top 10 team...they fell way out of the top ten...JJ could never in the end win the big game or play in the big time.

I wouldn't be surprised if men paid you to do a lot of things and probably give them a 25% discount if they find out you're Alex dressed as alice;)

Your Boise State team paid Petersen more than what they paid Hawkins when Hawkins left for Colorado.
Boise did the same thing to keep Petersen from bolting to Colorado with Hawkins.
Now, Petersen didn't produce a WAC Champion and no one wants your coach services with all the new coach openings. They knew he's not worthy of being a Head Coach himself. LOL!!!!
You're fishing without bait. Again.
Doubt Peterson would have moved his family to Colorado as he didn't show any move to leave for UCLA either.

BSU BCS victory

clown..the BCS does not wnat to take another risk with a bad UH team hon..they looked foolish by ranking Hawaii 10th..they never were a top 20 team and never beat a single strong opponnet. That is the sad resuklt of the horrible beating by the Dawgs. UH is out for a decade or more. The shibai offense of the Uh got revealed for what it is: a losing strategy.

The Warriors may be getting their Nate Ilaoa type running back in Jake Heun, who recently made a verbal commitment to UH. He's a running back in a full backs body listed as 6 feet 2, 250 pounds, with 4.56 speed in the 40 yard dash. He also loves to hit like a linebacker. He reminds me of Travis Sims, who was the starting running back for UH the year that they went to the Holiday Bowl. Go Warriors!
