Healing, Offensive Line, UNLV Tailgate Vid

Jason Kaneshiro has some injury updates.
"I think we're going to have Paipai (Falemalu) back, I think we're going to have (John) Fonoti back, which is really going to help us," UH head coach Greg McMackin said during his press conference yesterday.
Defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga is also expected to be ready for the Louisiana Tech game after suffering a sprained right ankle late in Saturday's game.

"It's getting better. I've just been trying to get rehab three times a day and icing it," Meatoga said. "If (the game) was on Saturday it would be a close call. But since it's next week Wednesday it gives me a little longer."
Dave Reardon has a column about how the UH offensive line has gelled.
From left to right it's Aaron Kia, Ray Hisatake, John Estes, Raphael Ieru and Laupepa Letuli. And they were excellent Saturday night. UH allowed just two sacks for 10 yards. For most of the game, quarterback Greg Alexander had plenty of time to find his receivers, even in routes that took lots of time to develop. Running backs Leon Wright-Jackson and Alex Green also succeeded picking up blitzers.

These are the same guys who couldn't block their defensive teammates in fall camp. It's the same group that had so much trouble with Central Arkansas that UH's most-used play in its season opener was the quarterback scramble.

Something has clicked for them. Five fingers have balled into a fist.
And ESPN 1420 has a video highlights of last week's tailgate and other fan festivities in Las Vegas. It includes cameos by the Sports Animals, Amy Hanaialiʻi, John McNamara, Leonard Peters, Gary Allen, Riley Wallace, Jim Donovan, etc. along with a bunch of UH fans.
