    Despite the fact that they only had three guys on the 1st and 2nd string All-WAC, the team is looking forward to an excellent season.

    Hawai'i Looks Forward

    The Warriors take a bye in week one, but preparation for the Cougars are under way. Hawai'i will take on Washington State in week two in what looks to be a great gridiron match up. Both teams are looking for a strong start to the season and they appear to be evenly matched. Coach The Brunsons had this to say, "We're real excited to get out on the field. Alexander has looked real good in practice, with Salas on the All-WAC team and Wright-Jackson in the backfield, the team is really starting to shape up. We've just got to go out and execute our offense."
    This should be a good home opener for the Warriors, coming off of an 7-7 season with a disappointing loss in last years Hawai'i Bowl to Notre Dame.

    Silva's Score Crushes Cougars
    AP | Honolulu
    The goalline sets are out. Lopina is under center. The Cougars have made three attempts to find paydirt and they're giving it one more go. The warriors crash the line and Montgomery is shut down!

    Unfortunately for the Warriors momentum, on the first play of the next drive the Warriors gave up a painful saftey. After the punt the Cougars follow up with a strong drive but were forced to kicks field goal. After swapping touchdowns in the second, Washington State makes one more run for the endzone before the half. They were hoping to widenthe gap, but on the final play of the half Silva picks one seven yards deep in the endzone and takes it to the house. It was by far the play of the game and the turning point in this tilt.

    After a couple of uneventful drives at the start of the second half, the Cougars put one In the endzone. 18-14. Washington State opps to go for two, but Hawai'i's huge goalline defense strikes again and the Warriors never looked back. The Warriors the take lead before the end of the third after having to go for it on fourth and inches with a QB sneak.

    The fourth was filled with desperation from Washington State. They abandoned the short game which had worked fairly well and started up the deep routes, which lead to short drives. Hawai'i played conservative and stayed mostly on the run, which also lead to short drives. However the Warriors played well enough to stave off the Cougars and win this outing.

    The Coach had had this to say about the game, "Washington State played a tough game. We had some great plays and some lucky plays. Our D went out and proved themselves on the goalline, I'm very proud of them. And Silva wasn't the player of the game but he gets the game ball from me."

    We talked with Silva about that record breaking play, "I couldn't believe it myself! When I jumped for the ball I was hoping for a tip, but I managed to catch it. Then all of a sudden I was in the open field. It was amazing, I just couldn't believe it!"

    I asked the coach about fact that the Cougars had almost 100 yards more total offense than the Warriors. "I'll take a W over stats any day of the week. Overall I think we played a good game and we're going to look forward to next week and the rest of the season."

    Next week Hawai'i has the impossible task of taking on 6th ranked Ohio State.

    Wrecking In The Rain
    AP | Columbus

    The Ohio State Buckeyes were bigger, stronger, and faster than the Hawai'i Warriors. The cold rain was something the Warriors are not use to playing in. And Ohio Stadium was roaring with the sound of over 102,000 fans, but these are not the reason that Hawai'i took a 54-21 beating.

    The Warriors had every opportunity to stay in this game, Ohio State missed two extra points and Hawai'i's defense made some good stops. However, the Warriors offense was shut down on poor decisions and terribly timed mistakes.

    After a 13-0 first quarter the Bucks were looking good, but Hawai'i finally figured out how to move the ball against Ohio State. After putting some points on the board with a big pass over the middle, Hawai'i could take the lead with one score. Unfortunately, Ohio State scored on the next drive. The Warriors weren't done though and scored on a screen pass to Wright-Jackson. One of this tilts few shining moments from the Warriors. Leon Wright-Jackson made the Buckeye D look like they were moving underwater as he weaved through them to end zone land.

    After a stop by the Warriors D the offense took the field and put it in drive. By the time they got to the red zone, it looked like Hawai'i really found it's groove. But the grove was shut down when Alexander was picked off and Coleman took it all the way to the farm. 27-14 Ohio State.

    This was when Hawai'i fell apart. Alexander went on to throw three more INTs and Wright-Jackson ran into a wall of Buckeyes at every turn. The irony is this is a carbon copy of what happened last week with the Cougars, but the tables had turned. This time the desperation was in the eyes of the Warriors.

    We caught up with the coach and asked him about the loss, " Well Ohio State played a great game and I made some poor decisions. Some days are diamond, some days are rocks, but we learn from our loses and we look forward to conference play. That is when the season really starts."

    The coach seems optimistic despite the 54-21 loss.
