Yay sports! Go team! USA!
The NCAA ranks UH no. 97 (120) nationally in total offense and no. 104 (104) in total defense. Rigo Sanchez ranks no. 15 in punting, Marcus Kemp no. 23 in receiving yards and Jahlani Tavai no. 27 in total tackles. (Last year’s final rankings in parentheses.)
End of the day, stats don’t matter, the wins are what counts. Hopefully more of that comes in the future.
What’s also surprising is that three of their five wins came on the road where UH usually struggles.
4-4 in conference is a big improvement over a year ago.
The guy’s had a little luck winning against Air Force and Fresno and not lucky enough to beat UNLV and New Mexico. So it kind of evened out. Hope the karma is shifting.
Good comeback but it was only when they abandoned trying to “establish the run” by running up the middle on first down and passing every down until they got in position to score that the offense showed its effectiveness.
Expectedly, it’s been a season of inconsistencies, from both players and coaches. Debate over the quality of both defensive and offensive coordinators won’t be answered this season but need to wait till next season when more of Rolo’s recruits come in and supposedly enable the coaches to better implement their schemes. Let’s be happy with the results of this season, it’s probably as good as what most of us hoped for.
The results were better than Chow could produce but nonetheless Rolo should evaluate poorply performing coaches and players after this season not wait till the end of another.
Of course he’ll start the evaluation process right away but not much he can do about current players on the roster except hope for better recruits. Coaches had their hands tied so give them some slack.
I think it is as good as it could get considering. Can’t wait for Ulu-Perry and hoping Agasiva returns home. Need to recruit some of the good players from Kahuku and Saint Louis and all the other top players around the state too.
Great win! Go ‘Bows for two more!
Two glaring errors in this report. (1) Fresno State scored with 10 seconds remaining in the first half, not 5:26. (2) The roughing the passer foul occurred on the 3rd down incomplete pass to Kemp in the end zone, there was no 4th down play once UH was in the red zone. I was at the game and verified my recollection of the events in the Fresno Bee.
Begs the question “How could UH go winless in a conference that’s so bad”? Rolo answers that question resoundingly, not that he’s proven to be a very good coach yet. With the players, facilities, and the budget UH has, they should do no worse than middle of the pack every year and fighting for top spot most years. What Rolo has done is bring back some sanity to coaching a Div.1 football team. Forget the lame “..season on the brink…” bs. We’ve passed that when Chow was lwt go. Now it’s mater of building a team that can compete for conference titles. UH is still a long ways off from that (unless the next recruiting class far exceeds all expectations). At least the program is back on track.
Wonder how Wyoming did it. And look at the PAC 12, crazy.
And what high school did you graduate with your spelling?
My spelling is fine, the SA site is so slow and can’t keep up with my speed, just like you. By the way, want to apologize to Rolo now? Or you sill stuck on defending the big M?
