Super Games, Les Soloai, Chats

Dave Reardon writes about some minor carnage during the last Super Games event, no-rules basketball.
Near the end of the Hawaii football team's final Super Games event a scuffle broke out between players trying to gain control of the ball. In an earlier game, running back David Farmer left to get treatment for a bloody head.

Greg McMackin later said Farmer is fine.

"It looked worse than it was," the coach said. "It gives them all something to talk about. That's how it is because they're competitive."
Also from the article, Reardon profiles Les Soloai, a rugby player from Australia who is learning to play on the defensive line:
"The first day he came they tried to take him for the O-line, but I told Coach (Dave) Aranda his feet are too good to play O-line. He has all the tools necessary to play D-line," Watson said. "He's light years ahead of where he was. When he came in he had no idea what football was. He didn't know O-line from D-line, he just jumped in."
And the Warrior Beat is hosting two chats today, with assistant strength coach and MMA fighter DeJuan Hathaway at 10:30am HST, and QB Inoke Funaki at 4:30pm HST. Be there! Twice!

UPDATE: Here's a link to DeJuan Hathaway's chat.

UPDATE 2: And a link to Inoke's chat.

    Bloody injury? No rules-basketball? Who came up with that dumb idea?

    Also, its interesting what others around the nation are saying about Hawaii's "Green" new uniforms. You can read it on UH Warrios ESPN message board. At least some can agree Oregon ducks won't feel alone anymore:).

    Aloha Kakahiaka, Tombo good stuff as usual. Shout out to Kulio'o girl - ww.

    No-rules BB is rugby. Stuff happens. These are football players not delicate ping pong players. They can handle. More importantly, they are exercising and working out.

    I'm so excited about spring ball.
