In 1926, Hawaii coach Otto Klum’s squad scored 101 points twice against opponents “Field Artillery” and “Heilani AC”. Interestingly,101 points is what June Jones’ 2007 squad would’ve scored on San Jose State, had eld conditions not been so
The University of Hawaii’s motto is
Ma luna a`e o nà làhui a pau ke ola ke kanaka
, which means “Above all nations is humanity” in theHawaiian language. It also means “Your mother has a smooth forehead” in Klingon.
In 1923, after defeating Oregon State on Moiliili Field, a rainbow appeared, causing local reporters to start calling the UH footballteam the “Rainbows”. Hawaii fans are eternally grateful that reporters didn’t see a dog peeing right after that game as they were an awfullyimpressionable lot. Hawaii teams were known as the “Rainbow Warriors” until they dropped the “Rainbow” from their name and logos in2001 (only 23 years after it became a symbol of the gay pride movement...way to get right on that)
The ofcial University of Hawaii magazine is called

The University of Hawaii won the 2004 Intercollegiate Sailing Association National Championship. The championship trophy resides inthe “Championship trophies that no one knew existed” case.
The Medical School of the University of Hawaii, the John A. Burns School of Medicine, is ranked 12th in the nation for
. Nowyou know why Dick Tomey and Chris Ault visited the campus in the offseason.
Departed star wideout Davone Bess (now with the Miami Dolphins) wasrecruited by June Jones’ henchmen while serving a 15-month sentence at ajuvenile facility. Why June Jones had recruiters lurking at prison-sponsoredag football games is obvious to anyone who’s ever watched
The Longest Yard.
Hawaii running back Thomas Kaulukukui’s number (32) is the onlynumber to date that has been retired by the UH football program.Kaulukukui, whom legendary sports writer Grantland Rice dubbed “GrassShack”, was only 5’4” and weighed a whopping 145 lbs. In a 1935game against UCLA, Kaulukukui returned a kickoff 103 yards for atouchdown...probably by running through defenders’ legs and set to themusic of Yakety Sax.
UH Head Coach Greg McMackin authored a book, titled
Coachingthe Defensive Backeld 
, that is currently in its 7th printing. The bookapparently depreciates in value rapidly as a new copy will run youupwards of $120 dollars and a used copy will set you back about abuck and a half. McMackin’s newest tome,
Big Mack’s Guide to Public Speaking
, was scheduled for a summer 2009 release but was put on holdfor some reason.
Singer/Actress Bette Midler attended the University of Hawaii. Did youever know that Timmy Chang was her hero, as well as everything shewould like to be?
The Broncos are coming off a dominant-everywhere-but- the-scoreboard win over Tulsa, and Hawaii is licking itswounds after a demoralizing loss to Idaho. Both teamsneed a win, but only one will get it (hint: it won’t beHawaii). Will Saturday’s game keep our attention past midnight or will McMackin’s Warriors get lei’d out early? We’ll know the answers to these pressing questions at 9 PM on Saturday, but in the meantime, there’s a lot to belearned about this week’s foe (don’t worry, Kellen Moorealready knows their defense intimately)...so let’s all givethe Rainbow Warriors a closer look through the magic of factoids and childish jokes. It’s time to get to know your enemy, Bronco Nation...so take notes
Ten things Bronco fans probably didn’t know about Hawaii or their litter-strewn lair 
 A Chang we can believe in.
Boise State has been winning handily in the boxscore, but not so much onthe scoreboard as of late. Red zone offense, I’m looking at you. Will all that change when the Broncos visit Hawaii on Saturday (9:00pm MT, KTVB)? Bone up on the Warriors and see why this week might be Boise State’s best chance to punch it in with fair regularity inside the 20. Feel free to leaveyour own keys to the game in the comments.
 What Hawaii did last week
L at Idaho, 35-23
The Warriors went to Moscow in hopes of turning around theirseason and ending the Wizard of Oz-like shroud of competencyaround the Idaho program. But in the words of Lee Corso, “Not sofast, my friend.Hawaii allowed Idaho RB Demaundray Woolridge to pile up fourTDs, and despite a tolerable passing performance from new starterBryant Moniz, Hawaii fell to 2-4, meaning more face time forthat Washington State win once the season review DVD hits storeshelves.
 What Hawaii has done so far this season
The WSU game in Seattle was probably the Hawaii highlight. Younever want to peak too early, but sometimes it is better to peak tooearly than to not peak at all. At this point, that looks like the casefor the Warriors. Following injuries to top passer
Greg Alexander 
,top defender
Brashton Satele
, and almost-top WR
Rodney Bradley
,Hawaii is looking at a lost season and the very real possibility ofmissing out on their bowl game birthright. Hawaii has to go 5-2over its remaining games, which would involve upsets over two ofthe following: Nevada, Boise State, Navy, and Wisconsin. In thewords of Greg McMackin, “Please don’t print that.”
Hawaii on offense
• WR Greg Salas• WR Kealoha Pilares• WR Jovonte Taylor• WR Joe Avery• OT Austin Hansen• OG Raphael Ieru• C John Estes• OG Ray Hisatake• OT Aaron Kia• QB Bryant Moniz• RB Leon Wright-JacksonThe Hawaii offense is not without serviceable parts. Estes is one ofthe best linemen in the WAC. Salas leads the league in receivingyards (by a lot). Up until the Greg Alexander injury, offense was notHawaii’s problem, and it wasn’t all that culpable last week againstIdaho either.Not much has changed in Hawaii over the years, other than asharp decrease in the newborn boys being named Colt and June.They’ll still pass until it is no longer feasible to do so. And thenthey’ll pass some more. As they say in Hawaii, “Mele kalikimaka,”which I believe means “He’s open, throw him the ball. Oh, not you,Inoke Funaki.
Hawaii on defense
• DE Elliott Purcell• DT Rocky Savaiigaea• DT Tuika Tufaga• DE John Fonoti• LB R.J. Kiesel-Kauhane• LB Mana Lolotai• LB Blaze Soares• CB Tank Hopkins• CB Jeramy Bryant• S Richard Torres• S Spencer SmithThe Hawaii defense returned exactly two players from last year’sunit, and then exactly one of those returning players got injured. Attrition, thy name is Greg McMackin cosmic gayness justice.Now the Hawaii defense is getting by on a wing and a prayer.Prayers were answered against Wazzu when the Cougars coughedup the ball seven times; the bounce hasn’t been so fortunate forHawaii since then as they have just one TO in the past three games(hmmm, sound familiar?). Third downs are starting to be a problem,too, as the Warriors are allowing teams to convert better than halfthe time.
Hawaii on special teams
• P Alex Dunnachie• K Scott Enos• PR Greg Salas• KR Kealoha Pilares• KR Jovonte TaylorHawaii’s KRs and PR are dangerous threats. A good Kyle Brotzmanrugby punt and bloop kickoff ought to x that.
Hawaii’s red zone defense
During Hawaii’s current four-game slide, the TDs that the Warriorshave given up have mostly been right near the goalline. Check itout:• Five of Fresno’s six TDs came inside the red zone.• Three of Idaho’s ve TDs came inside the Hawaii 10-yard-line.• All three of LaTech’s TDs came on runs inside the Hawaii 10.• Four of UNLV’s ve TDs came inside the red zone.
