Na Koa Lunch Report, Fresno, Future Scheduling

uhwarriors has this week's Na Koa Lunch Report up on SportsHawaii.com.

Via KTVU, the Sports Network has a UH-Fresno game preview.

Stephen Tsai profiles Tuika Tufaga and Shane Austin. Tsai also has some news and notes on the Warrior Beat about Royce Pollard, Dustin Blount, Rocky Savaiigaea, Paipai Falemalu, etc.

Jason Kaneshiro profiles Fresno running back Ryan Mathews. Kaneshiro also has some notes about the UH-UW series extension, Inoke Funaki, Chris Leatigaga and Operation Uplift.

Ferd Lewis writes about the UH-UW series extension, and UH's hopes for a crowd of 40K on Saturday.
UH is hoping brisk walk-up sales will give it a crowd approaching 40,000 for Saturday's game with Fresno State.

As of late Monday sales stood at approximately 32,800, school officials said.

Donovan said the sales are about 4,000 ahead of the pace for the Sept. 4 season opener against Central Arkansas, which drew 33,298. That is the only home game to date for UH, which returns to Aloha Stadium after a 36-day absence.

"That puts us in the ballpark, plus or minus, of about 39,000 and, hopefully, we could hit 40,000 depending upon the weather," Donovan said. "Otherwise, we could be in the mid-30s."
And Ferd Lewis has a column about how great it is that UH is filling up future schedules, and how sad it is that the previous administration let things fall by the wayside.
