San Diego State wins in OT

By Paul Arnett

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 08:25 a.m. HST, Nov 17, 2013



The University of Hawaii football team beats San Diego State about as often as a solar eclipse visits the island chain. The Aztecs had won 10 of the last 12 meetings and were looking to keep that trend in place in last night's Mountain West Conference game at Aloha Stadium.

And San Diego State did just that winning 28-21 in overtime before a crowd of 23,229. It was their first victory here since 1997. The only two losses in this recent streak were here in 2002 and 2005.

San Diego State scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to draw even and got the ball first in the overtime period. The Aztecs needed only three plays to score, all on runs by Adam Muema as he went in from the 2 with what proved to be the winning score. Seamus McMorrow added the PAT to give the Aztecs the seven-point lead.

When Hawaii got the ball, the Rainbow Warriors went down quietly with a run for no gain by Joey Iosefa, a sack of quarterback Sean Schroeder and two incomplete passes to fall to 0-10 for the season and 0-7 in MWC play. The Aztecs are bowl-eligible with a 6-4 record and are 5-1 in conference action; their only loss to Fresno State in overtime. Hawaii travels to Wyoming this weekend, while the Aztecs host Boise State.

Down seven at intermission, San Diego State took the opening kickoff of the third quarter and marched steadily down the field, going 78 yards on eight plays. The Warriors forced a punt, but a running-into-the-kicker penalty gave the Aztecs new life with a first-and-10 at the UH 30.

On a straight toss sweep, Aztecs running back Donnel Pumphrey outraced everyone to the end zone as McMorrow added the PAT to make it 14-14 with 11:53 left in the third.

Hawaii went on a similar drive in the fourth to retake the lead, marching 86 yards on 16 grueling plays as Iosefa caught an 8-yard middle screen from Schroeder to score and Tyler Hadden added the PAT to make it 21-14 with 9:42 remaining in the game.

But the Aztecs would not go quietly. They pieced together a nice eight-play, 82-yard drive of their own that ended on a 14-yard draw by Chad Young for the score. McMorrow added the PAT to make it 21-21 with 2:34 left in the game.

The first half was filled with missed opportunities for the Aztecs. Hawaii had two turnovers on its side of the field in the opening period. The first, an interception by Schroeder, resulted in no points for the Aztecs. They turned it over on downs at the UH 24. The second, a fumble by Iosefa, also resulted in no points after UH's John Hardy-Tuliau recovered a fumble by San Diego State quarterback Quinn Kaehler at the UH 35.

Another San Diego State turnover, this time when a Scott Harding punt deflected off the Aztecs' David Lamar and was recovered by Jerrol Garcia-Williams at the Aztecs 23, broke the ice. Two plays later, Iosefa took it in from 5 yards out to give the Warriors a 7-0 lead with 1:14 remaining in the first quarter as Hadden added the PAT.

San Diego State drew even on a 56-yard touchdown pass from Kaehler to a wide open Colin Lockett as McMorrow added the PAT to make it 7-7 with 8:40 left in the second quarter. On the  scoring play, Hawaii was offside and thought the play was dead. It was not and the Aztecs were the beneficiary of a gift touchdown.

Hawaii reclaimed the lead on a five-play, 65-yard drive. There were two big snaps from center. The first was a 20-yard reverse by freshman Kwamane Bowens that set up a 31-yard touchdown pass from Schroeder to a wide open Harold Moleni as Hadden added the PAT to make it 14-7 with seven minutes remaining in the half.

It was only the second time Hawaii led at the half this season. The other was at Nevada-Las Vegas where Hawaii lost on a last-second field goal.

Iosefa set a school record with 37 carries for 150 yards and two scores. Having him back has been big for the Warriors. Schroeder completed 18 of 36 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns.

Muema proved to be the difference with 163 yards on 24 carries and the one huge score for the Aztecs. Lockett led the way in receptions with four for 106 yards and a score. Gant was UH's top wideout with five catches for 41 yards. He and Schroeder tried to hook up for several big plays, but came up empty each time.

I think he was quoted as saying "the goal is to score 28 points a game." In addition to JJ, I guarantee the Oregon, FL St, or Baylor have never thought or said anything close to that! When you think like that as a college footbal coach, you're never to going to be sucessful. The goal should always be to score 50 and ensure the game is never close.

You don't need to ask that question with Nick Saban of Alabama. This has nothing to do with the players talent level, I guarantee you a team coached by someone like a Saban would never have players committing so many stoopid penalties and mistakes due to lack of concentration. Go watch the movie like the Dirty Dozen with Lee Marvin. In the Dirty Dozen the team consisted of independent misfits that were trained to be a cohesive team by leader Marvin that accomplished a very difficult mission.

Just checked online and the movie might have been inspired by the TRUE story of the Filthy Thirteen. This group was the Demolition Section of a company in the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, US Army, which fought in Europe in WW 2. In one mission they parachuted by enemy lines to blow up a critical bridge to cut enemy supply lines but most ended up dying. Look it up.

Even under pressure of tonight's game, Coach Norm Chow and his staff were very terrible in letting this game get away. San Diego had four turnovers and still our Rainbow warriors could not take advantage of the turnovers. There will be a lot of calls to "FIRE NORM CHOW NOW!." Another game show that Norm Chow just don't know how to be a Head football coach. He is a legendary Offensive Coordinator but no way he is Head Coach material. Unfortunately Ben Jay the Athletic director at the University of Hawaii refused to fire him and stating the team is improving. Eleven straight loss with two more games to go, is that improvement? FIRE NORM CHOW NOW!!

This team is finding new ways to lose games. But the one constant throughout this whole season, is watching the players constantly making stupid plays, and not being able to tackle. My one advice, forget about the injuries, and go live tackling from day 1 of spring training and carry it thru fall practice. No more of this 2 hand touch during practice. That is the only way, these players will get tough, and learn how to really tackle. Oh, also, forget about these so called redshirt and non-starter scrimmages during bye weeks. This team is NOT good enough to do those kinds of things.

You're the only Head Coach in D-1 football that has GRADUATE ASSISTANTS in the coaches booth calling offensive plays WAY TO GO NORM..... Your defense can't tackle to save their mommies. Na'Quan Phillips when covering a receiver never knows where the ball is. He just looks at the intended receiver and tackles him, if he can, AFTER THE CATCH IS MADE. If he is one of our best corners no wonder we are winless. Don't you coaches see that on film ????? WAY TO GO NORM..... Speaking of the defense that 3 man front you had vs SDSU, well let's just say 3rd and long doesn't bother them again Hawaii's defense. When are your defensive coaches going to teach the players how to tackle; way too many missed tackles. And when tackles were made it took 3-4 guys to bring the SDSU player down. Also in 1 on 1 situations, I don't know how many times the defensive player was "faked out". DC Thom Kaumeyers schemes are not working...when are you going to figure that out. Ever wonder why we are winless at this point. I could go on and on but a personal note to AD Ben Jay. Like a lot of fans I am FED UP w/ an arrogant, hard headed coach who won't realize his system isn't working and should change. You' d better schedule a lot more "body bag" games like Ohio State at Columbus for the money because who wants to donate to a losing cause. I for one will not be renewing my season tickets unless I see some changes in regards to the leadership of this team.

While the defense missed several tackles--some of them during key moments of the game--I still believe they played fairly well. If there's any consolation--UH looked better on paper in somel major statistical categories. For example, UH won the turnover battle 4-2--forced and recovered 4 fumbles. SDSU also committed 6 penalties for 44 yards--in comparison to 5-33 for the Warriors--meaning that UH players actually played smarter. On offense--and a credit to the defense as well--UH won the time of possession battle as well. The Warriors offense also did much better on 3rd down conversions at an efficiency rate of 8-19 compared to 4-15 for SDSU. If anything, SDSU's main advantage over UH was their speed and athleticism at the receiver and running back positions--which led to a balanced attack yielding 265 yards passing and 194 yards rushing. For this reason, UH must recruit faster players to compete with speedy teams such as SDSU.

That is a reflection of the coaching staff as committing such penalties and errors this late in the season are completely unacceptable. This is the first time I saw part of a UH game live as it was on one of my sports channels for free and I could not believe the number of personal foul penalties committed by UH at the worst time in such a close game. Chow and his coaching staff is a complete joke and it is NOT the fault of the players as they are only a reflection of their coaches.

the demeanor of the players did not look right during the pre game talk by NC. Noticd it during the broadcast on the sidelines during the SDSU game. We need some honest feedback from the program, including the players.

This was an ugly loss, but not as bad as Georgia's heartbreaking loss to Auburn. Still, I suppose, a loss is a loss, no matter how ugly or heartbreaking.

Saw the highlight on this one, poor coaching as everyone knew it would be a hail mary play and it is up to the defensive coaches to drill into the brains of the defensive corners and safeties to just bat then ball down and NOT try to catch the ball. Both defensive players where trying to simultaneously catch the ball resulting in the ball to be popped up in the air that allowed the wide receiver to catch it and take it in for a touchdown. Football might be a game of emotion but the players MUST still play with discipline and purpose which is a reflection of their coaches. That is what separates a winning from a losing team and why UH is failing so badly.

Yes, after firing Chow before the end of this season, UH needs to END the public Haka. Fire Chow for cause based on his detrimental negative public statements about him wanting to leave UH and let him file a lawsuit and make him pay for an attorney with his own money. Or give him the option of paying him one years of salary to just walk away.

How about looking at a the core team of coaches before Chow, except without Mack. Rolo, Miano, Aranda, Norwood-? Talk with them quietly and see if these guys are willing to work together again as lead coaches to bring UH back from the gutter. Choosing an outside coach to coach Hawaii, even if that coach is highly successful on the mainland is problematic and chances are he would not be able to turn things around in Hawaii. Like when Jet Li said in the movie Kiss of the Dragon when in doubt, gonback to the beginning; the Mac coaching staff had a decent on field performance record, despite Mack himself. Mack was a problem, maybe because he was a lush like the current Toronto mayor that might be the reason why he would publicly say and do stoopid things. Got a strong feeling Mack was just a figurehead and smart enough to let his young assistant coaches run the team and at worst, someone mentioned was 6-7.
