Graunke Reinstated, Super Games

Tyler Graunke, rising like a Phoenix:
Quarterback Tyler Graunke has been reinstated to the University of Hawai'i football team.
Graunke will participate in the Warriors' off-season conditioning drills tomorrow. While suspended, he was not allowed to participate in any team functions.
Awesome news. Glad he got back on track.

And Dave Reardon writes that tomorrow is the Super Games finale.
Klum Gym. 7 a.m. No Rules Basketball.

I asked Greg McMackin what the rules are to No Rules Basketball.

As soon as I asked, I could see his eyes roll through the phone line.

“There are no rules,” the coach said.

OK, this should be interesting, if not dangerous.
UPDATE: Reardon has an article on Graunke's reinstatement.
"Tyler and I did meet today and he has fulfilled his obligations. He's done a good job," McMackin said. "What that is is between he and I. He'll be back tomorrow."

Graunke was suspended from team activities the past five weeks.

"We've put it behind us and I'm on the team," Graunke said. "I pretty much have to earn my spot back (as the No. 1 quarterback). I'm sorry I put myself in this situation, and I apologize to my teammates and fans and especially myself."

Graunke said his problems "pretty much" had to do with academics. But he said he also had to do community service and pay a fine for "issues having to do with partying in the dorms," going back to his freshman year.

    Im cheering for that 6'-5" QB (Alexander) thats on the team...give him a few reps and he'll be a well oiled machine, I would say like that of Colt Brennan, plus an additional 45 pounds and 3 inches. If he produces as efficiently for his remaining 2 seasons at Hawaii...no question, he will be a QB NFL scounts will be drewling about come draft time. I hope he gets the starting job.
