All that moron McMackin had to do was double team (bring the safety over) on #4 for the Rebels and this game would have been won by UH.

UNLV ran the same "jump ball" play earlier against UH's smaller DB.

The Warriors played their A$$E$ off and I blame the coaching for calling a bad defense alignment to lose the game.

Let's give credit to UNLV for the win. Cannot say one play was the difference. But I will say to take a look at the stats. The team with the effective running game won. Sportswriters tout the passing yards of the QB, but its the run that keeps sustained drives, controls the clock, and kept Hawaii's offense off the field. UNLV did that. Four yards on first, makes it a whole lot easier when you are second and six. Six yards on first, then you get the picture. Hawaii's rushing games was pathetic. They can't punch it in in the RED.

Two minutes and nine seconds of possession time in the third quarter. Net yards rushing - 28. Poor tackling. No rushing the QB. #4 allowing three touchdowns on exactly the same kind of play. And last but not least, our QB throwing so many balls away or poorly. No wonder we lost.

Our quarterback has no game management... can't believe how lost he looked when he was "trying" to run the 2-minute drill. We need a real qb.

Two personal fouls by UH played a major role in the loss to UNLV.

At what point did I say I didn't support the team? Where do you get wishy washy?

When you make a bad coaching decision to lose the game you're a moron. That's how it works....MORON!

They didn't have the ball with 2 minutes. They had the ball with less than 50 seconds. What game where you watching?????

No they didn't.
one too many

A starter committed personal fouls last year and in the recent UNLV game he committed another. This was huge because the momemtum shifted. Play 40 or minutes of great football and commit a personal foul and it effects the outcome. Is the coach going to permit this player in question to be suspended or reprimended because this is one personal foul too many. A good performance by the offensive unit has been again negated by a defensive lineman. What a shame to lose by one point.

The loss means that a BCS bowl bid is out of the question. It looks like in order to earn their non-BCS bowl bid they need to win more games in conference play, including some on the road.

... a BCS bowl bid!!! Ha ha, really? Dude, it never was a question. That simply ain't happening. BSU is #8 in the nation. They have a shot at a bid. UH is rated #88 (or there-abouts) so they ain't getting no interest. First you should worry about winning. Then maybe after years of winning (not whining) UH will get some consideration...

Bad coaching on UH - the game was won by the players & LOST by the coaching staff - I was there. Great game but with a disappointing end.

What game were you watching? UNLV shredded the defense all of second half and the offense and coaching puked in crunch time. If this was a "great job" I would hate to see a bad one.

UH's pass defense was bad, Real bad. UH played their zone defense way too soft. Even a high school QB could have passed against UH. The UNLV receivers were so wide open, and UH did not adjust. The UH defensive coach is Clearly to blame for this lost and the UH secondary should have played the receivers tighter.
