So much for June Jones and his Run and Shoot offense.
Agree, no miracle man there! Defense again is the name of the game.
The JJ offense only works against teams that don’t know how to play defense.
It’s a typical JJ offense…one dimensional, passing, no running game, just like when he coached at UH and SMU. Once the defense got him figured out, it’s all over.
Waianae is well coached and just too strong at this point.
a lot of unsportsmanlike penalties against Waianae.
there were penalties on almost every play in the first half.
Refs tried their best to control the game but, like you said, nearly every play was an unsportsmanlike penalty. They should have ejected some of those kids since the Waianae coach could not control his players. I give the Kapolei coaching staff and players props for not retaliating, as I’m sure they wanted to. Teach the kids life lessons about winning and losing the right way.
Waianae is Tough !
So much for June Jones and his grossly outdated offense.
Can’t take anything away from Waianae. Their ground and pound will wear down defenses, and it takes its toll in the 2nd half. And it opens up passing options. Their D is phenomenal. But don’t bury Kapolei’s JJ offense just yet. Dropped passes, missed routes, errant passes are all part of the growing pains. But we see glimpses of Taulia’s vision, accuracy, quick release, and cool under pressure, and we see receivers getting open. It’s just a matter of time before they all begin to gel. Watch for the Hurricane to get better with every game. They’ll be a different team toward the end of the season.
Hmmm…I heard Kapolei was up 2 touchdowns and they ran the ball a total of 2 times.
….and many wanted JJ at UH! Interesting isn’t it. Glad Rolo is in charge.
I’m not a JJ fan. However, let’s be fair. Anytime a team has to learn a new system, it’ll take time. Especially a high school team. If this was his third year, then, maybe the all the negative comments would be warranted. If you don’t want to be fair to JJ, then at least be fair to the students athletes. Give them the time and respect needed to learn something new.
Football is not all offense especially when Kapolei focused only on a passing game and a good defense also plays a big role to compliment a one dimensional passing game. Waianae scored 28 unanswered points and it’s has nothing to do about learning a new system on defense.
