Healthier, D-Line, Etc.

Work sucks. Here's the late news links.

Stephen Tsai has injury updates.
After yesterday's 2-hour practice on the school's grass practice field, defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga, defensive ends Fetaiagogo Fonoti and Paipai Falemalu, and punt returner Ryan Henry declared themselves physically fit for Wednesday's road game against Louisiana Tech.
Tsai also writes about Brett Leonard traveling with the team even though he may still redshirt, and Andrew Fauumu being elevated to backup long snapper.

Brian McInnis takes a look at the UH defensive line. He also has notes about Royce Pollard and Ryan Henry.

The News Star has excerpts from Greg McMackin's latest WAC teleconference.

And Ferd Lewis writes about the desperate foes UH faces in the next couple games.
Desperation is a powerful motivator and the schedule has them playing two at-risk teams, Tech and Fresno State, back-to-back in circumstances that have forced them to become Bulldogs in more than nickname.

Tech's Bulldogs are 1-2 and Fresno State's are 1-3. For both, Hawai'i is, at once, the next chance to get well and the last opportunity to stay in the WAC race.

Wednesday the Warriors, who left yesterday for Dallas, play a Louisiana Tech team that, in coming off an 8-5 season and its first bowl victory in 30 years, seemed destined for big things this year. The promise of the Bulldogs as a WAC contender was a major reason ESPN asked the conference for the midweek TV pairing back in January.

A 1-2 start wasn't supposed to be part of it, however.
