Rausch at #2, Previews, Predictions

Stephen Tsai writes that it looks like Brent Rausch is the #2 QB.
It appeared fourth-year junior Brent Rausch nudged ahead of third-year sophomore Bryant Moniz in the competition for the No. 2 quarterback's job. Rausch took the majority of snaps. "You have to report what you see," head coach Greg McMackin said.
Tsai talks to Nick Rolovich about the other QBs and has some good news regarding John Estes, Chris Leatigaga and David Hafoka.
Senior defensive tackle Chris Leatigaga has been diagnosed with a dislocated left knee cap. The injury is not as serious as initially feared, and he will be able to play this season.

"It all depends on how good the rehab is and how fast my leg reacts," said Leatigaga.

Defensive tackle David Hafoka, who transferred from College of San Mateo in January, expects to resume practicing this week. He missed training camp because of a herniated disk.
Jason Kaneshiro talks to John Estes about not taking Central Arkansas lightly.
John Estes was still in high school back in 2004. But he points to Hawaii's opener that fall as a cautionary tale for the current Warriors.

"In 2004 we lost to (Florida Atlantic) and we had a pretty good team," Estes said. "We had good players, but if you're not ready to play you're going to get your (butt) kicked."
Kaneshiro also notes that the official backup QB decision may not have been made yet, and has some injury news about John Fonoti and Mana Silva.
