After a tough first week loss to USC, Hawaii looks to bounce back against Oregon State. We'll be posting all week on things we liked about last week, and things to look forward to for Saturday's game. The first? Vasquez Haynes and his perfect approach to the game.
Hawaii Warriors quarterback Taylor Graham made his presence felt during Thursday night's college football season opener against USC, but not with his passing skills. Graham absolutely lit up Trojans cornerback Kevon Seymour with a bone-crushing block in the first quarter as Warriors running back Bubba Poueu-Luna reversed direction after a handoff. Not only did Graham's...
Today was the first day of practice for former Hawaii wide receiver Dwight Armbrust. The 6’1 wide out has been hoping to get a shot to prove his talents after a short hiatus from UH. Armbrust will join Coach Joseph Thrasher in Belhaven. Coach Thrasher has been doing a great job at getting these small […]
The Warriors had an exciting if somewhat turbulent offseason. Norm Chow scored an early coup in keeping three of the state's top ten players in Hawaii. All had been courted by perennial football powers but chose to stay home. This year's Warriors will also eschew Chow's initial philosophy of running the ball and Chow has wisely relented and stated he would use a new system...

The Hawaii men's teams will all be switching to the 'Rainbow Warriors' nickname this year after dropping the 'Rainbow' in 2000. If they dress like they did in 1959, they're going to look great.
Draft Zone Spotlight: Darryl McBride Jr., OLB/SS, University of Hawaii
This kid should be nicknamed MOTOR, because he possesses it every snap. McBride is super fun to watch because of his high powered attitude. I love watching McBride play the game, because you can sense the love for the game. You can watch the game and know which player is McBride. He sticks out like a sore...

Hawaii’s head coach is Norm Chow, most notably known for being the offensive coordinator at...
The Orange-clad warriors
Even when the regular season seemed so easy, it was the BC Lions record breaking defence that stumbled late in the season.
But not bringing home a Grey Cup is no reason to cast aside a notable season. I’m just excited for what this group can do next year after a full off-season of pent-up aggression.
This will be the only column where no “D” is a...

Norm Chow is 66 now, and while the Hawaii Warriors coach still has his buddies at BYU, he jokes that their game-day morning jog around Provo has slowed to a walk.
''That will bring back a lot of memories as we solve every problem in the world there is to solve on our jog,'' Chow said as he prepared to face his former team for the first time as a head coach in a nationally...

Predictions are always dicey, especially when a new coach with a brand new system takes over a program.
Norm Chow has done that this year in Hawaii and there is both considerable buzz and excitement about the upcoming season.
But considering the tough slate the Warriors have ahead of them, is it warranted? Lets take a look at each game.
