Hawaii Randy's Real Estate Opinions: University of Hawaii Football - The Last Undefeated Team in the Nation

University of Hawaii Football - The Last Undefeated Team in the Nation

                                                                                                    UH Logo

Last Friday's game was the most important and possibly the most exciting game in the University's history.  Boise State has won the WAC conference for the last 5 years.  University of Hawaii was undefeated and trying for their first outright WAC conference Championship.  They were co-winners in the past.

Their victory over Boise State made the University of Hawaii the WAC Champions!

This is the best season in the history of the school.  Until that game we were not getting a lot of respect on a national basis.  Things have changed. 

Our quarterback Colt Brennan, who was barely mentioned as a Heisman hopeful in the past has now been elevated to on one of the possible favorites by the sports announcers.  Colt was hurt and missed most of three games, yet is still breaking NCAA records left and right.

The final game of the season will be against the University of Washington Huskies.  If Hawaii can win that game in a strong showing they should be heading to one of the five BCS bowl games.  They need to be in the top 12 on the BCS standings and after the Boise State game they moved up the 12th ranked team on the BCS standings, higher on the other polls.

Here are the coach's comments about the upcoming game:

Randy,

I've been keeping an eye on University of Hawaii all season. Amazing. CONGRATULATIONS to the Hawaii team.

Huskies are tough on any given Saturday. Go Hawaii.

Cheers, Mr. C. KIM McGuire. N. Padre Island, TX.  Go Ohio State Buckeyes! National Championship is a good possibility still! Otherwise off to the "Grand Daddy of All BOWLS" - The ROSE BOWL!

Randy,  Good luck to the UofH against the Huskies.  I live in Washington State but I'd hate to have your team lose such an opportunity to the Huskies who have had a pretty dismal season.

I'm not too fond of football but Saturday ought to bring a lot of traffic :)

Congratulations to your team! I hope they come out on top on Saturday!

C. Kim - I expect Washington to be tough, especially since we are nationally ranked and they have nothing to lose. They are better than their record.

Carol - Thank you, The people of Hawaii are really excited about this season.

Sally - How can you not love football with the Warriors being so exciting this year?

Randy...  Congrats on Hawaii....  But I will agree with some of the media and say that they haven't played as many to get a better ranking. And Cole has been hurt here and there, hence why he hasn't been mentioned much. Personally..... I think he has a good arm, but he seems to be a little fragile in size. In the NFL, some big hits could put him out.

On the other hand, I will be cheering for my Mountaineers. They win Saturday and they are in the National Championship game... either against Missouri or Ohio State.

In any case.... it is a good feeling when a home team gets recognized.... so Congrats again.

Sally - I will check it out.

Jeff - Their biggest challenge was many of the big name teams are ducking them.  Our news media was reporting how much trouble our Athletic Director was having scheduling games.  On ESPN over the weekend they brought that up.  One of the sportscasters was also picking Colt as the best candidate for Heisman.

His injury was because of a blatant helmet hit in a previous game.

That photo is awesome! Did you take that picture? And is this the same game Sally was talking about?
Posted by Lisa Hill, Daytona Beach Real Estate (Florida Property Experts) almost 11 years ago
Lisa - That is not my picture.  That is from a comment about Ohio State.  I haven't read Sally's post yet.  I will go check it out.  I am sure it must be the same game.

Randy - Looking forward to this week's game and an undefeated season.  Trying to figure out ways to make it into the parking lot with as little stress as possible.

Randy,

Is this the school you want your son who plays to go to?

Posted by Neal Bloom, Realtor CRS-Weston FL Real Estate (eXp Realty) almost 11 years ago

Jordan - I wish I was going to the game.  We will be having a big football party instead.  I stopped taking my car to the games when we go.  I take park my car and take the shuttle bus, it is stress free.

Neal - That would be the dream of a lifetime for him.  Not much chance, you would have to be an exceptionally gifted athlete to even have a chance.

GO UH GO! I remember when they were the UH Rainbow Warriors....... SO much has changed....

Lysa - Things have changed for the better.  The stadium got also a face lift including new field turf a couple of years ago, because of the Pro Bowl requirements.

Gary - Look out the Warriors are on a roll.

Krista - Thank you

I've been keeping and eye on Hawaii as Boston College's QB Matt Ryan is also a Heisman candidate and I knew Colt was a pick early on in the season.  Best of luck Saturday...

Jay - Good luck on your side.  This is the first time for Hawaii in all of the above categories.

Randy - What a game!  I'm so impressed with this year's Warrior Football team.  My voice is still hoarse, but it was well worth it.  This is such an awesome time for the athletes, program and for the state of Hawaii. 
Posted by Jordon W.Y. Wong, Jr. (Marcus & Associates, Inc. ) almost 11 years ago
Jordon - The final games was the comeback of all time for the school.  What a great game.  I posted an updated blog post for it.  UH Finishes With a Perfect 12-0 Season!
