Mr. Reardon, you were right the first time. Florida Atlantic was a division 1-AA team until 2005. They went to division 1-A in 2006.

Quote: "It's one thing to be crushed by the most talented team east of the L.A. Coliseum. But if UH doesn't take care of business against Weber State in the ultimate trap game, it will be a long season for the Warriors and those who remain faithful."


i disagree, hawaii didnt get crushed...hawaii shot themselves in the foot. hawaii got blow out in the scroing sense, but as far as being competitive, hawaii was there with florida. How can you even give yourself a chance to score/win when you give up 6 turnovers to zero?

if the game was played the way it played out in the first qtr and the 4qtr, this game wouldve been different...

so i dont buy into the "hawaii got crushed" comments...if you really watched the game and know football, you would be smart enough not to say hawaii got crushed...the mistakes the QB made in the 2nd and 3rd qtr was the dagger in the heart.

no mistakes in the first qtr by the offense = game was competitive.

no mistakes in the 4th qtr by the offense = game was competive, albeit no Tebow.

now if hawaii didnt have all of those turnovers and the final score was the same, then thats what you call being crushed!

i bet coach mac would disagree with you that the warriors got crushed. the game was competitive minus turnovers.

I thought we could have played better, but we got crushed by a superior team.
Inexperienced quarterbacks made mistakes, but Florida DB's made the interceptions and with their speed turned what would just be an INT into TD's. Same with the missed tackles and breakaways, Florida's speed gets blockers downfield and one "mistake" by our defenders or our return coverage and instead of just a long gain, their speed turns it into a TD.
No shame, though. Florida played very conservatively in the first quarter defensively and we moved the ball. Florida would crush any WAC team and many BCS teams at the Swamp.

56-10 is crushed, regardless how it happened. Also, the score could've been worse.

Hawaii did get crushed.... hawaii created 0 turnovers and sacked Tebow once although it was more of a tackle for loss because of the type of play... and floridas D created 6 turnovers.... don't make excuses for UH, they just got beat by a more dominate football team.... The game was what i expected... And just to let u know that im not a UH hater but a football politics realist... I expect a florida type domination of weber st... anything less than a 30 point win would be shocking to me... and for the record florida ran pretty much a vanilla defense and offense for the whole game.... in lay mans terms they didn't need all that misdirection and confussion to beat UH... let me know what u think!!!!!!

The next game will be a real challenge. Regroup around a new starter and game plan off of what the learned from Florida.

I liked how we moved the ball with run and short pass, moving under center, while Florida started out with a conservative pass defense, respecting our passing attack and the threat of the deep ball. Looked like a 3-3-5 from UF.

The challenge next game will be to play the same "chop suey" style with Funaki and hope he can pass it downfield enough to keep the defense from stopping the short stuff.

Smart of Mack for many reasons to pick Funaki to lead us.

Dave, you hit the nail square on the head! I hope all your readers, our "fickle Hawai'i fans" read it too. One game does not define a team....how they rise from this loss will determine their character for the season. Go Warriors!!

They will beat Weber State. They pad their schedule with mostly home games against bad comepytition. It fooled folks last year until the humilation in the Sugar Bowl brought everyone low. But realism always returns.

I had no ideaWeber State had that much firepower. I'm sure that Coach Mack & Coach Lee are taking this team vey seriously. Again, I'm happy Inoke is starting My only anxiety now is that thi is the 4th straight year that I still don't have my season ticket in hand with less than a week before the home game. I just found out that my set-mate had his weeks ago. What gives?? I have more faith in the team winning on Saturday than me getting my tickets before Friday. Go Wariors!

Dave, I agree with you in general, but Weber State beat Montana-Western. These guys are NAIA. If UH can take care of business they should be fine. Geevum UH!

You Clowns will be lucky to win 3 more games all season. You have to face the fact that your team just sucks and the State of Hawaii sucks even more. Sorry to have to be the one to tell you, but hey thats life.
