UH-Fresno Previews, Daily-Lyles, Moniz, Shigematsu

Ari Cutler of Boxscorenews.com has a UH-Fresno game preview.

Luke Shaffer of The Collegian has breakdowns, matchups and keys to the game.

Stephen Tsai profiles George Daily-Lyles, who may see more playing time against Fresno.
For tomorrow's road game against Fresno State, the Warriors are paging No. 55.

The Bulldogs rely on a run-oriented offense that believes in the ground-pound-astound philosophy. For the Warriors, that means recalling the 4-3 scheme that was supposed to be their base defense, and summoning Daily-Lyles, who was supposed to be their middle manager.
Tsai notes that Rodney Bradley is healthy and will start against Fresno.
For the first time since suffering a strained left hamstring two weeks ago, left wideout Rodney Bradley participated in a full practice yesterday.

"He looks better than he did before he went down," receivers coach Mouse Davis said.

Head coach Greg McMackin said Bradley will start against Fresno State.
Bryant-Jon Anteola of The Fresno Bee profiles Bryant Moniz, who talks about how he felt in his first collegiate start last year against Fresno State.
This time, Moniz won't be overly excited or nervous or put his teammates on edge. And he probably won't feel the urge to vomit when he calls a play in the huddle.
"I didn't think I ever threw up -- I might have gagged a little bit, but I held most of it in," said Moniz as he recalled his first college start when Hawaii lost to Fresno State 42-17 at Aloha Stadium last year.
Now, Moniz knows what to expect. No longer a fourth-string walk-on or viewed as a short-term replacement, Moniz has developed into Hawaii's most important player as the catalyst in the Warriors' passing-intense offense.
David Simon of The Garden Island profiles offensive lineman Sean Shigematsu, who is redshirting this year.
Though he is inactive on game days, Shigematsu is going through the rest of the same process as everyone else on the team and said the coaching staff has been helpful and positive about his technique and improvement.
“I really get compliments on my pass blocking,” he said. “The upperclassmen are really helpful. The coaches have all been great. Coach Mac (Greg McMackin) is great. Coach (Gordon) Shaw is one of the best offensive line coaches I’ve ever known.”
And Ferd Lewis hopes that UH and Fresno extend their series even though the bastards are leaving for the MWC.
But if there is a cessation of competition between UH and the Fresno State, which follows Boise State and Nevada out the WAC door, that would, indeed, be a loss. For this is a series with a knock-down, drag-out history and an attitude -- and UH has precious few of those left.

The Bulldogs have been UH's most frequent football opponent, and tomorrow's meeting will be the 43rd in a series that stands at 21-20-1 for Hawaii. This is a series that goes back to 1938 and had some frequency even before they joined the WAC.

    Warrior Nation, are you ready to party? Join us at the official Road Warrior tailgate party at Fresno this SAT, 1- 6pm next to Beiden Baseball Field (and next to the visitors entrance to the football stadium- right off Bulldog Lane)…..Same place as 2008 and like we did in 2008, we have the BIG circus tent, live music, ono food and famous GREEN Beer cups, raffle prizes, and meet the cheerleaders and AD Jim Donovan. And good stuff for sale from Rainbowtique…..

    And we hope the team bus will drop off the players/coaches again (as they did in 2008) in front of the tailgate so we can give the boys some BIG cheers and support as they enter the stadium….it really helped as the 1,000 plus fans in 2008 supported the team throughout the game and Hawaii beat a good FSU team ( 3 TDs favorites) in the last quarter on a field goal!!! It was exciting and our team is on a roll so it will be a battle in Fresno in 2010!!!!

    Per FSU ticket office, the Hawaii section at Fresno State stadium (41,000) is sold out!! 1,000 plus Hawaii fans, many coming from California. So our tailgate party should be humming.........live music, ono food and loyal hard core fans.....Hope some of the ex-Warrior football players will drop by.....
    and we will definitely be blasting the Hawaii 5-0 song during the tailgate..
    .. and Hawaii cheerleaders are confimred to drop by....

    Please forward these links and flyer to your contacts and friends in N. and S.Cal especially...

    Send the attached flyer and these links:
