Ho damn. I'm so nervous, so psyched, so riled up for this game and it's finally here! I had my doubts Hawaii would be undefeated heading into this game, but I was certainly hopeful. This is the biggest game in the history of the University of Hawaii football program. We don't have a pro team in any sport and so the Hawaii football program is like the biggest ticket in town. The health of the entire state rides on this game. The hype is HUUUUUGE!!! Just HUUUUGE!!! Unexplainable. Anywhere and everywhere you go, people are talkin' about this game. Tickets are being sold on ebay for $500+ dollars... The friggin season tickets only cost me $225. Still... there's no way that I'm selling my tickets today. That ole rust bucket of a stadium is going to come down today!!! We are gonna be rockin' and rollin'!!!! My voice will be gone until Monday. I'm pulling a half day of work today and then heading to the Aloha Stadium. I can't freakin' wait! CAN'T FRIGGIN' WAIT!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't take it anymore!!!!

This is it. Everything has to be left out on the field. I'm a fan and I'm already drained.... I don't know what I'll do if they lose. I'll need some sort of relaxation remedy...

Oh and RL13... don't worry. You'll get paid if they lose today. *crosses fingers... knock on wood*

i dont think its gonna be that high, id say i like 37-28 Hawaii, around that area. Hawaii has a surprisingly good rush game(when u add shovel pass to the running game.) Colt will probably go 2-2 with around 350 passin yards

I stand by my word. He'll get paid right away. No delays. Right through paypal.

...and I expect the same prompt courtesy to occur if the tables are turned.

Get some satellite boy...and don't diss the Vanier Cup.

I predict a 4 point Hawaii victory, 35-31. That just about covers the spread, right?

Ian Johnson can't do everything, and Nevada put up 70 on Boise State, so we know their Defense is vulnerable.

That Nevada game did go into like 4 OTs though so the score is slightly skewed

So? 40 isn't exactly a crazy high number considering these offenses, and these defenses for that matter. I don't see how it makes the game automatically swing in Hawaii's favor if the score is in the 40s, because we know it's probably gonna be a shootout either way.

If Hawii wins next week, they better make Fiesta Bowl.

Boise St. should get into the GMAC Bowl or the Hawaii Bowl at the very least.

Yea it was on up here on Rogers Sports Package. I actually went to the Vanier Cup today...and it was great. Great atompshere, the fans were awesome. I have been to several Vanier's before (my dad actually coached the last time U of Toronto was respectable 1993) and this was by far the best one.

Also...etk...dont know if you know who Matt Henry was...but he was from Mississauga, played with the Eagles, and is now Manitoba's RB...he had a run today and as he took a stride a SMU player went low into his thigh, and he broke Hnry's femur. If you see the highlight (The Score had said they wont show it anymore because of how graphic it is) you will see how Henry's right leg wraps around his neck...ugh! It was sickening..he was carted off, and I wish all the best to him. Best RB I have ever faced.

I thought he's playing against OK State this week as well. They're a very dangerous team with him at the helm, possibly one of the best. I still have nightmares of the thrashing they gave us.

I was afraid the missed extra points and the silly mistakes were going to catch up to us and bite us in the ass. Hard fought game that I'm thankful we were able to rise up.

That was the biggest game in Hawaii football history... now this Washington game is going to take on that importance. I hope Hawaii moves up to at least #13 in the BCS Poll. Sometimes the voters only see the final score to make their judgement. Hopefully they filled their obligations by watching the entire game. They could've made it 46-28, but decided to kneel on the 1 yard line to run out the clock on first down. I thought that was a nice sign of respect and sportsmanship.

I think the game was purposely placed on the earlier than midnight timeslot so the voters could see. BTW whats the name of that big dude with the Polamalu hair running down there on special teams. He looks mad crazy!

I agree. Im really curious to see what the Hawaii vs Washington line is. Im guessing 14 since they lost to Washington State today.

I don't know what Hawaii's trend is, but I highly doubt they've strung together two wins ATS in a row all year. Not that that's a great indicator of future play, but just sayin'.... Hawaii plays in the wacky wac. This Washington team played Washington St. close and I thought they were gonna pull out the win. They also nearly beat USC and last week they beat Cal. They are definitely capable of pulling the upset and Ty Willingham will have them prepared mentally. I'm not sure he has or could put together a defensive scheme that can stop Hawaii effectively with the talent he has, but psychologically, they'll be revved up. Washington also beat Boise St... I know that was a million years ago, and both teams are completely different now, but people still give Missouri credit for beating Illinois in week 1 too. They've played EVERY game tough. This game will be dangerous. The stadium will be rockin' again next week, so hopefully, the Warriors keep the momentum flowin'.

I get sideline passes for ESPN games and usually beg friend for ticket if not ESPN game for BSU. My family has season tickets in Seattle for Seahawks and Huskies.

I have gone to all Seahawk home games besides 49ers and usually go to Husky games when they are same weekend as Hawks. My family doesnt like going to Hawaii we like going to football games.
