  1. From about 1999 till 2013, USC and Hawaii played regularly on a H&H basis. Four (1999, 2005, 2010, 2013) at Hawaii, two (2003, 2012) at USC. Of course we didn't win any of the games but the 2010 game was close with a 49-36 loss. Aloha Stadium was packed with about 70/30 Hawaii to USC fan ratio every time it was at Aloha. When the PAC12 started having a Championship game, and Sark and co. didn't care to schedule us anymore the series dropped off.
  2. I think the conference felt it was unfair for everyone else. Hawaii getting the $1.1m along with the $2.3m meaning $3.4m annually would best even Boise St in tv revenue. I think if we joined a year later we probably would have gotten a better deal as the threat of Boise and SDSU leaving was there compared to the year before. Thats one thing I missed about the old WAC. Double dip along with no travel subs.
  3. If we all get to do our own tv deals separate from conference tv deal. Hopefully it isn't pooled together and spread out like how it is now. Which is why Hawaii isn't taking part in the conference tv money right now. Everyone should be able to keep their own and take part of conference tv money.
  4. 100% of Hawaii $2.3m Tier 3 Revenue to Hawaii. 0% divided amongst the other 11 schools. at least our AD was able to do that when joining...better than the original plan the conference wanted (split with everyone)
  5. just found out this trophy is based on a real monument in Hawaii. Located on the island of Hawaii. "This monument honors Ikua Purdy, a famous Hawaiian Paniolo (cowboy), who in 1908 went to Cheyenne, Wyoming. He traveled all the way from the Big Island of Hawaii to win the championship of the world in steer roping."
  6. It's the Paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboy) Trophy Rivalry from when we joined the WAC back in 1978. Wyoming lost the original trophy so a new one was created when we joined the MW to renew the rivalry. Which is currently in Hawaii's possession.
  7. How did Hawaii play "way above their heads"? Just because Chow showed how not to coach a team? The team always lacked a solid QB under Chow even with decent surrounding talent. Dru Brown who Rolo recruited ended up being the "solid" QB the team needed. The team was good enough to beat most bad teams (SJSU, Fresno, Nevada, UMass, UT-Martin), compete with average-good teams (New Mexico, AFA, MTSU), lose against teams with deeper depth and talent (Michigan, Cal, Arizona, Boise, SDSU) and have just one bad loss in UNLV. It was Rolo's first season and his coaching style and the starting players changed as the season went on. It wasnt an amazing season (7-7 can't be considered that) but it's definitely a solid season with many players Rolo didn't recruit for his Offense and Defense.
  8. What's that section under 'RAMS'? is that like ground level seating or something?
  9. SDSU losing Fisher is like Hawaii losing Dave Shoji/June Jones.
  10. Fisher resurrected a struggling program at SDSU into a powerhouse. Without him the program would probably still be struggling... Hopefully Brian Dutcher sustains some of the success Fisher brought to the program. Reminds me of our Women Vball coach Dave Shoji announcing retirement a month or so ago. It's hard to replace a HOF coach that built the program from nothing.
  11. I think a lot of that cost is due to the roof. Ugly roof for what is a decent looking stadium (outside the roof and the pool)...They should have at least shaped the roof like the stands or vice versa...not 3 solid straight line roof with horseshoe shaped stands. It leaves more openings for people to get soaked in heavy rain that halawa has a lot of... btw where did you read the report for the new stadium? I would like some good reading lol
  12. agree. hate the roof design. I'm hoping they are doing solar panels with all the sunlight during the day and would save electricity costs at night. "Also new article from today talks about the time it would take to build..."Officials estimated, citing a DAGS timetable, that at the current pace it could be SEVEN YEARS before a new stadium was to begin operation. Actual construction, once the site was “shovel- ready,” would take 18 to 24 months, Raij estimated." of course it would take seven years to build a stadium...only in Hawaii. When the Rail Transit construction is going a few hundred million over budget and taking a few years longer than expected...
  13. It's the north endzone. No dolphins. It's a swimming pool for people to swim/hang out in during games...

  15. yes as the saying goes...everything is more expensive in Hawaii. That's the cost of what happens when the available land is shrinking every passing year, along with the cost of shipping most if not all the construction material from the mainland.
