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.

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...
