Breakdowns, News and Notes

Stephen Tsai has a position-by-position breakdown of the team as they had into the fall semester. Some excerpts:
Yesterday, Austin, a junior who started one game in 2009, was picked as the third-string quarterback. Offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich said Graves, a second-year freshman, still will practice with the top group. As the best scrambler, Graves "gives us a different aspect at quarterback," Rolovich said.
Chizzy Dimude, fully recovered from shoulder and ankle injuries, will receive a lot of touches as a back and receiver.
With a breakout camp, Royce Pollard has won the battle at right wideout.
If the season were to begin today, the starters would be left tackle Austin Hansen, left guard Brett Leonard, center Bronson Tiwanak, right guard Adrian Thomas and right tackle Laupepa Letuli. "Maybe by Monday, it could change," line coach Gordy Shaw said.
On his blog, Tsai has a lot more observations. He also notes that defensive lineman Josh Manupuna is no longer on the team.

Dave Reardon was impressed with what he saw of Bryant Moniz.
The University of Hawaii's starting quarterback looked very sharp in the drills I saw yesterday. His many on-the-money throws included a perfect long one to Royce Pollard who caught it in full stride.

He was also strong in a red-zone drill, snapping off TD passes on three of five tosses. All five throws were right there; one of the two incompletions was a drop, and the other was due to a good defensive play.
Reardon also likes what he sees out of special teams this year.
