San Jose State holds on for win

By Paul Arnett

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 02:22 a.m. HST, Oct 06, 2013


It might be too early to entertain thoughts of another 0-12 season for the University of Hawaii football team, but if Saturday night's 37-27 defeat to banged up San Jose State is any indication, condolences are in order for head coach Norm Chow.

The Rainbow Warriors were giddy with excitement after taking a 14-3 lead deep into the first quarter, but that disappeared quickly as the Spartans reeled off 31 unanswered points to put the Mountain West Conference meeting out of reach. San Jose State quarterback David Fales did a nice job of mixing run with pass as he threw for  318 yards and three touchdowns to engineer the win.

It raised the Spartans record to 2-3 for the season and 1-1 in MWC play. Hawaii dropped to 0-5 overall and 0-3 in conference action entering next week's road game with Nevada-Las Vegas.

The UH defense wasn't good as it yielded a half-dozen plays of 16 yards or more in the first half as the Spartans had 534 yards of total offense. Hawaii countered with 473 as starting UH quarterback Sean Schroeder completed 28 of 50 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns. He also had three costly picks.

Coming in, this is one football game most folks figured the home team had a shot at winning, but it didn't work out that way.

After scoring 24 unanswered points to close out the first half, the Spartans had the opening touchdown of the second on a grueling 10-play, 84-yard drive that ended with a 27-yard touchdown pass from Fales to Tyler Winston. Austin Lopez hit the PAT to make it 34-14 with 3:59 remaining in the third quarter.

Hawaii finally stopped the bleeding with a 28-yard touchdown pass from Schroeder to Billy Ray Stutzmann as Tyler Hadden added the PAT to make it 34-21 Spartans with 2:22 remaining in the third quarter.

San Jose State threatened again early in the fourth, but had to settle for a 37-yard field goal by Lopez to build the Spartans advantage to 37-21 with 12:21 remaining in the game.

After Lopez hit the left upright on a 24-yard field-goal attempt that would have ended things, Hawaii went 80 yards for a touchdown as Schroeder hit Chris Gant from 50 yards out. The try for 2 failed as Hawaii trailed 37-27 with 7:51 remaining. The Rainbow Warriors would get no closer.

The Spartans had a complete game, despite four of their best players not even making the trip. Winston had six catches for 159 yards and one score. Running back Tim Crawley rushed 21 times for 93 yards as the Spartans produced a balanced attack.

Up 27-14 at the intermission, the Spartans took the opening kickoff of the game and marched easily into Hawaii territory, before stalling at the UH 27. It set up a 44-yard field goal by Lopez. He made the kick with 13:34 remaining in the opening quarter as the Spartans led 3-0.

Hawaii needed a few series to find its legs with Schroeder as the man under center. The Rainbow Warriors finally put a drive together as Schroeder found Scott Harding for a 42-yard completion. Harding made a nice catch on the play that gave UH the ball at the Spartans 41.

Running back Steven Lakalaka, who finished with 77 yards on 16 carries, then ripped off a 29-yard run to give UH a first and 10 at the 12. Three plays later, Gant scored on a reverse from 9 yards out and Hadden added the PAT to give UH the 7-3 lead with 5:53 left in the first.

Hawaii came right back and scored on its next drive after the defense forced the Spartans to punt. UH quarterback Ikaika Woolsey promptly hit Vasquez Haynes on a nice 44-yard strike that set up an 8-yard scoring pass from Schroeder to Haynes as Hadden made the PAT to give UH a 14-3 lead with 3:18 remaining in the first.

But it was all San Jose State from that point.

They marched 75 yards on five plays for their first touchdown of the game. It was a 61-yard bomb from Fales to Chandler Jones, who went in untouched for his 19th career score; a Spartans record. Lopez hit the PAT to cut UH's advantage to 14-10 with 1:38 left in the opening quarter.

After forcing UH to punt, the Spartans needed only three plays to go 78 yards to regain the lead 17-14 with 13:36 remaining in the half. Fales had a 40-yard completion to a wide open Winston and then a 35-yard strike to Billy Freeman for the touchdown as Lopez added the PAT.

Lopez came back on the next series and barely made a career-long 51-yard field goal as the football hit the crossbar and bounced through to make it 20-14 San Jose State with 10:25 left in the second quarter.

The Spartans continued to pour it on with a 39-yard touchdown run by Jarrod Lawson as Freeman threw a beautiful block to allow Lawson to go in untouched. Lopez added the PAT to make it 27-14 San Jose State with 1:39 remaining in the half as Lawson rushed for 89 yards in the game.

Class of? I am class of 1975 Farrington. It's okay though because if UH goes to 0-5, then the inevitable may happen, such as a Von Appen. What it also means is that Hawaii could be considered so much of an academic school that we could become The Harvard of The Pacific. I notice even that Hawaii Pacific graduates are getting more starting pay than UHM graduates noting another institution in The Pacific.

I think that Oahu College was once considered the Harvard of the Pacific. At least the best college west of the Rockies. Now it's known as Punahou. I doubt UHM will ever be considered the Harvard of the Pacific. That's more likely Stanford.

Now of the games left, which ones can Hawaii win, or can they. A zero win season would probably result in a Chow-dy future for the coach. LOL. Too bad, they couldn't get a better offensive line up, so maybe Schroeder would have a fighting chance. Who picked the players and gave them their positions? Some of the players shine, but the rest are flashes in the pan -- like MRC and Apple.

Hawaii is not a top team and the administration lacks the acumen and courage to make such a decision. UHAD should however consider 1) downgrading football to lower divisions D1AA or D2 or 2) cancelling football or 3) Suspend campus new growth and expansions for 5 years. You people can barely afford to maintain your existing UH facilities, why on earth are you spending money on expansion? With the shameful deal that Hawaii accepted to get into the MWC it has become economically unfeasible to support such a costly program. It would have been worth it if the MWC still included TCU Utah and BYU but it doesn't so Hawaii isn't even getting it's moneys worth to be in a much weaker MWC. Downgrading will do away with inflated expenses of being in the MWC and will give Hawaii winning seasons which will make the football program financially viable. D1 may be prestigious but for Hawaii doesn't make financial sense.

waianae94, the difference between UH and USC is that top tier coaches will be lining up for a chance at the USC job. Candidates are willing to overlook the fact that a coach was fired midseason because having USC on your resume is that big a deal. If UH pulled a stunt like that you could give up the dream of landing a top tier coach, they wouldn't even find a suitable coach.

USC athletics pulls more in donations in a year than UH's entire athletic department budget. Please do not look at anything they do and think UH could do the same.

What Boise State has done with their football program is entirely attainable by UH football, However it all STARTS with a competent head coach and chow fun is not that person. Some need to stop drinking the UH kool aid and wake up to reality. From day one he was always one step behind and clueless. Not a good reason to pick a coach based in where he went to high school or his ethnic background. Forget chow fun, UH is in deep kim chee.

In my opinion, the Warriors' biggest weakness on either side of the ball is their running game. Hawaii ranks 119th in rushing yards--which makes the offense way too predictable and one-dimensional. I still believe that SS is a solid QB--yet without an adequate running game--an opposing defense secondary can just sit back and defend against the pass--leading to more interceptions that UH can afford to give.

I haven't read in the StarAdvertiser sports about what UH Athletic Director Ben Jay thinks of the current situation with Head Coach Norm Chow. Warrior fans attending home warrior games is declining and it is on a free fall. If you took a poll today about the coaching ability of Norm Chow, majority of fans wants him "FIRED." UH Athletic Director Ben Jay is the person responsible for any firing in the UH Athletic department. Tonight's game with San Jose supposed to be a winning one. . .like the one with Nevada two weeks ago. Looks like our Warriors have entered the "Von Appen Era." Remember Him - Fred Von Appen. He coached for Hawaii two years resulting in zero victories and 19 straight losses. Norm Chow maybe a Offensive Coordinator geneies, but he just not Head Coach material. The majority Rainbow Warrior fans, lincluding me, hope Ben Jay take immediate action and fire Norm Chow. His next step should be looking for someone that can bring a "modern spread" offense (like the Oregon Ducks or Baylor) as our next coach to revive Hawaii football again.

If he did manage to be recruited by Hawaii, he'd be on the bench maybe a notch below Higgins because Higgins was the guy that beat him out for the starting job at St. Louis. Plus, at Oregon, he's getting LOTS of attention. At Hawaii, no one would ever hear from him again.

I have nothing against old age and experience, but a lot of times, with old age also comes stubbornness or reluctance to change, and that's Chow! He has to realize that the game has progressed and what worked 10-20 years ago in his heyday is out. Plus, he did well because he was at USC and BYU. He's now at Hawaii, and we cannot lure the same kind of talent here.

Everyone blames Norm Chow. It's the players who are not perfoming. The coach is on the sidelines playcalling, the players are not doing their duties. It's only Chow's second season and people already want his head. All I can say is the quarterbacks are lousy, as the quarterbacks go so does the team. Chow hasn't had time to recruit good quarterbacks.give him time.

TRUE THE COACHES DO NOT PLAY, BUT THEY DO THE TEACHING. SO THAT WOULD MEAN, THEY ARE NOT DOING A GOOD JOB OF TEACHING. IF YOU ARE NOT A GOOD TEACHER, THEN YOU SHOULD BE FIRED. CHOW HAD ONE YEAR TO RECRUIT AN EXCELLENT QUARTERBACK, BUT WHAT I HAVE SEEN HE HAS NOT RECRUITED A QUARTERBACK, YET. DID HE BRING IN A GOOD, NOT EXCELLENT FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK THIS YEAR, THE ANSWER IS NO, HE DID NOT.

You know, last year a bunch of us were starting to complain about Chow and play calling and stubbornness. But, there were a whole bunch more saying, "Give him time...." He needs to get better players...." "Wait until next year...." Well, HERE IT IS! It's next year, and five games into the season we're winless. OK, maybe USC was a tall order, and even Oregon State and FSU. But Nevada was without their starting QB and SJSU was banged up. Two possible wins. If we even split them, that would have been understandable. But now, we hit the road against UNLV who always gives us a hard time over there, and looking at the rest of the schedule, what I once saw as possibilities now seem like losses. OK, for one brief half last week, we actually looked like a contender, and the coaches and players agreed that if they focused, they could do the same next week. Guess they didn't focus....enough? This offense is just not working for us. At least with the run and shoot, there was always potential to score. What we have now it seems like we can score if we get lucky, which is apparently not often, or often enough. So, to all the "Give him time!" people....is it time already?

Rolo cannot do it alone. Hire him ONLY if Rolo, Miano and Aranda all agree to come back and work as a team to get UH back on track. They know UH, the type of players playing for UH, local Hawaii high school players, etc. They all should get almost equal pay but it would not be super high salary. Unlike clueless Chow from day one these three need to have a comprehensive game plan on how stop UH's nose dive into oblivion. If you have Rolo, Miano and Aranda all competing against each other for the head coach position, bad blood will emerge and the final winner will NOT be effective as head coach as neither of the three individually are experienced enough to do the job. All three 'bring something to the table' that UH desperately needs right the sinking ship.
