Idaho 35, Hawaii 23

First off, let's hope Rodney Bradley is okay. It appeared on the replays that he suffered a pretty gruesome injury to his leg.

UPDATE: Bradley is out for the season.
University of Hawai'i wideout Rodney Bradley is undergoing surgery for a broken left leg suffered during today's game against Idaho and will miss the remainder of the season.

Bradley, a junior from Dallas, suffered the injury when he appeared to be leg-whipped by Idaho safety Shiloh Keo after a 16-yard catch early in the second quarter.
::::::

Positives:

Bryant Moniz played a great game going 30 of 42 for 360 yards with a late TD and an interception on a hail mary. He also had a rushing TD on a scramble. Seemed like he was only stopped by breakdowns in protection and dropped passes.

Greg Salas had 10 catches for 111 yards

Offense racked up 444 yards

The Noke offense scored UH's first TD of the game

The fake kick seemed like a good call and was very close to working

Spencer Smith had 12 tackles


Negatives:

Dropped passes

Shanked kickoffs

Defense unable to make critical stops

Lack of pressure on the QB

It appeared that there was confusion as to whether UH should go for two towards the end of the game, resulting in what could have been a wasted timeout

    Yeah, if I could say anything - it would be about the dee needing some tackling reminders.

    The main thing is prayers for Rodney Bradley... that leg whip was awful.

    Moniz and the awe-fense is exciting and I'm looking forward to next week's home game!

    Not to sound like a grouch, but I'm not sure I would say Moniz is a positive. Yeah he got a lot of yards, but he only threw for 1 touchdown, and that was during garbage time. Last week, his two touchdowns came when Fresno had the scrubs in.

    Either he can't finish drives, or the coaches are calling some terrible plays in the red zone.

    the offense has been having trouble scoring in the red zone, but at least in this game two of the drops could've been TDs. for his first game on the road, and second game overall, i would count moniz's performance as a positive. the team just gotta start putting everything together. it's not going to help to lose bradley for the year. just hope it's not a career-ender
