    Free money right here folks. With Boise and Fresno in the Islands and 4 road games I might be taking on a second mortgage on the warriors.

    I wouldn't mortgage the house yet...Hawaii has a habit of lapsing on the road.

    After careful review Idaho and La Tech both have new coaches and probably suck. UNLV looks to be pretty down too. Nevada is the only game that worries me but the Pack lose some key players off of their team last year. I don't see 2 loses in that schedule. I'm gonna go to the kitchen and try to cut one of my kidneys out with a steak knife and sell it on the chinese black market. I'm going to donate plasma on north high every day. I'm putting every available dollar down on this

    Milli, you're the foremost Hawaii expert on this board. With Colt Brennan and Bess do you really see 2 loses on this schedule? 4 games on the mainland and the toughest games at home.

    I'm going on all in this one. There's no way I'm wrong. Hawaii will go at least 11-1 against this schedule and I'll be spending new years at the Bellagio.

    Actually, I'd put 808 Buck ahead of me as the expert on UH football (maybe HAYN, too). I'm 95% certain Hawaii will go at least 10-2 and about 85% certain they'll go 11-1. Washington will play them tough and have a good chance at beating Hawaii at Aloha Stadium. Something about Nevada just scares me as a UH fan...don't know what it is, maybe it's the fact it'll be their first road game after four home games and two bye weeks. Then there's the "choke factor"...not on Brennan himself but the entire staff and team. Hawaii hasn't had a 2-loss season since 1992 and only two since 1974. It will not surprise me to see Hawaii totally fuck up a game they should win and end up going 9-3 despite this Keebler cookie schedule.

    EDIT: The La Tech game is going to be tougher than expected because they'll be playing 5 times zomes away with a kickoff time of 7:00 am Hawaii time...

    As an Islander where do you rank Brennan in regards to QB's to come through Hawaii? Is Davone Bess the best WR (better than Ashlie Leelie) to come out of Hawaii?

    Milli, I put this schedule down to a couple of games. San Jose St., Fresno, Boise and Washington at home. Nevada on the road These are the only teams in my opinion that Hawaii plays that are of note. Nevada scares me but I can afford one loss. I can't see Washington (which I predict will be a non bowl Pac10 team) or any of the WAC teams winning in Hawaii. What do you think the extent of the Hawaii homefield advantage is for the warriors?

    Wow 2 1-AA teams

    even if they do go undefeated they shouldint be allowed in the BCS, that schedule is a joke

    Brennan is the best I've seen watching Hawaii football for 21 years.

    Bess is a totally different style of WR than Lelie...Bess is shorter, relatively stocky, very explosive and cuts on a dime while Lelie was a taller WR with good top end speed and was more fluid.

    The home field advantage for Hawaii is by far--by far--their biggest advantage over opposing teams. The UH players take protecting their home turf very seriously (hence several on-field fights over the last few years). Plus the travel distance and time difference takes a huge toll on visiting teams. A good example is when Northwestern and Michigan State came out to play after completing their Big Ten schedule. Both jumped out to big early leads (both led 21-0 late in the first or early in the second quarter, or something like that), only to start to wear down and lose in high-scoring games (49-41 and 41-38 respectively). It also works against Hawaii when they have to travel near or past the Mississippi. In fact, they year after they beat MSU 41-38 at Aloha Stadium the went to East Lansing and got smoked 42-14. So, yeah...the home field advantage for Hawaii is huge.

    BCS doesn't matter, all that matters is that Hawaii has an 11-1 record for their prop bet on preseason schedule. 1 BCS team this season in what is a Washington team that will be middle tier Pac10. Fresno, Boise State, and San Jose which are 3 bowl teams last year on the island. Idaho, La. Tech, and UNLV are jobbers. Nevada is the only good road team they play.

    my bad I didint read the bottom part about the prop bet, just saw the schedule

    Hawaii 10.5 at +110. Hawaii goes 11-1 against that schedule and the bet pays out.

    Hawaii is going at least 11-1 this season and I'm going to the Bellagio. Objectively looking at the schedule I could see 4 potential losses Boise State, Fresno State, Washington and Nevada. Hawaii has 3 of those teams at home. Brennan will outgun BSU, FSU, and the Huskies. Nevada will be a hard fought win on the home. The beauty is I have one loss to back me up. I'm gonna buy a USO tour for our boys overseas and a trip with my friends to the bellagio after I cover on Hawaii going 11-1.

    I wouldint count New Mexico State out

    They have 10 starters back on offense that average 31.2 PPG last year and 475 YPG

    that game should be high scoring to say the least
