GameDay: UH at Washington State

Jason Kaneshiro has a gameday preview.
While preparing for two quarterbacks, the Warriors remain focused on containing the running back duo of Dwight Tardy and James Montgomery.

"That's their strength," McMackin said of the Cougars' top backs, who combined for 97 yards against the Cardinal. "They change their plan for different teams, so it'll be interesting to see what they do and we'll have to adjust."
Stephen Tsai has a gameday preview with lineups and breakdowns of the offense, defense and specialists of both teams.

The Daily Evergreen has a preview.

Tsai writes about UH's practice, cheerleaders who made the game and the injury to Brent Rausch.
Rausch suffered an injury to the pinkie on his throwing hand when he struck a defender's helmet during a drill Thursday. Rausch's pinkie was in a splint yesterday.

Bryant Moniz took the snaps as the top backup to starting quarterback Greg Alexander.

Shane Austin, the No. 4 quarterback, was added to the 66-player travel squad. He arrived in Seattle last night.
Ferd Lewis has more about Rausch.
It is feared that, pending a further evaluation, backup quarterback Brent Rausch has a fractured pinkie finger on his throwing hand and might be lost to the University of Hawai'i football team for the season.

Rausch, who apparently sustained the injury in contact with a teammate's helmet in practice here Thursday, is scheduled to undergo a more extensive examination with a specialist next week in Honolulu, according to team officials.
Lewis has more news and notes about swine flu prevention, UH recruiting in the Seattle area, etc.

Lewis also writes a column: No time to be sacrificial Warriors

And so does Dave Reardon: In football, ideas are resurrected, not invented
