Coach Mack Show, Ryan Henry out for the season, UH-Boise on ESPN?

HawaiiNewsNow.com has this week's Coach Mack Show up on their site. The Call of the Warrior segment is a profile of Mana Silva.

HawaiiAthletics.com has excerpts from McMackin's weekly press conference.

Adam Nettina of the USU Statesman has a recap of the UH-Utah State game.
"I'm kind of at a loss for words for it, honestly," said Utah State tight end Kellen Bartlett following the loss. "You never feel good after a loss, but it's extremely demoralizing."

"We played a better team and they went out there and proved that, and they really established it," Bartlett continued. "Everyone was thinking with the rain and the cold – and here's Hawaii – that they're going to play bad because all the weather and stuff."
Stephen Tsai has some bad news about Ryan Henry, who is out for the season.
Punt returner Ryan Henry will miss the rest of the Hawaii football season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL, UH head coach Greg McMackin announced yesterday.

The injury "is really a shame," McMackin said of Henry, a senior who also plays slotback.
Unfortunately this also ends his playing career at UH. All the best to Henry in his recovery. Also from that article are injury updates on Brett Leonard, George Daily-Lyles and Laupepa Letuli, who all may play against Idaho, and Geordon Hanohano, who underwent surgery on his knee.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Geordon Hanohano is expected to miss two games after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Friday to repair a torn meniscus.

"I want to play (Nov. 6) against Boise," Hanohano said. "That would be real good. I have to see if it heals that fast."
Tsai also writes about Rodney Bradley not looking at the Idaho matchup as a revenge game, and David Graves shifting back from safety to QB.

Tsai talks to WAC Offensive Player of the Week Alex Green.
"It was a team effort," Green said. "It was nice to get (the award), but it feels better to get the win."
Ferd Lewis writes that ESPN wants to show the UH-Boise State game, but Boise hasn't approved it yet because...
Under terms of the Western Athletic Conference contract with ESPN, no school may have more than six of its games shown in the regular season via the WAC package without its approval. Boise State is scheduled for five and, because of the unbeaten Broncos' run toward a possible national title game, ESPN would like to show both the regular-season-ending Dec. 4 game with Utah State and the UH game - both Broncos home games. But, as things stand now, ESPN must either choose one or the other or receive the Broncos' approval.
And Lewis writes why a bowl-eligible SMU might not play in the Hawaii Bowl.
But there are several potential obstacles beyond whether SMU, currently 4-4 with four games remaining, becomes bowl eligible. For one, SMU's Gerald J. Ford Stadium is hosting the 2010 Armed Forces Bowl since the usual home, Texas Christian's Carter Stadium, is scheduled to undergo a $105 million renovation at the close of the regular season next month. And the bowl's owner, ESPN Regional TV, and its partner, C-USA, would have a sellout there with the Mustangs at home, something another team might not deliver.

All along some SMU alums had wanted the Mustangs to play closer to home last year when they achieved their breakthrough first bowl appearance in a quarter century. Two in a row in Hawaii might be a tough sell, even for the persuasive Jones.
