Na Koa Lunch Report, Scout Bowl, WAC

Michael Lum has this week's Na Koa Lunch Report up on NaKoa.org. Nick Rolovich was the featured speaker. Here's an excerpt:
During the bye week, four coaches will be out recruiting. For the receiver position, they are looking to bring in one JC receiver along with high school recruits.

Asked about who will be replacing the graduating receivers next year, Rolovich said Jeremiah Ostrowski has been getting better and is in better shape now. He is smart and has the opportunity to make a move next year. Alan Sampson is another who needs more reps. Darius Bright will be a different kind of receiver because of his strength. Billy Ray Stutzman has good vertical speed and is smart. He might be looked at as a slotback next year.
Stephen Tsai has a report from yesterday's Scout Bowl, in which backups and redshirts competed in a simulated game.
The Warriors have three promising freshman defensive ends -- Desmond Dean, Beau Yap and Marcus Malepeai. Defensive line coach Tony Tuioti said he wanted to get them on the field at the same time, so Malepeai moved to defensive tackle. Moses Samia was the other defensive tackle.

Yap was able to chase down receivers on screens. Malepeai held the point. And Samia made two of his 2.5 sacks using two-handed thrusts.

"See those clubs right there," defensive end Siaki Cravens said, pointing to Samia's hands. "Those are 3X glove sizes right there. That's all power. I'm pretty sure (the offensive lineman) gets nervous when he lines up in front of him. He uses those big hands and clubs people with them."
Chawan Cut has KITV's report on the Scout Bowl and Jake Ingram's release from the Patriots:

And Ferd Lewis writes that the WAC is poised to add at least three schools in the very near future.
A reshaping of the Western Athletic Conference could begin tomorrow with signs pointing to the addition of as many as three new members: the University of Texas-San Antonio, Texas State and Denver.

The WAC is apparently waiting for the University of Texas System Board of Regents to approve UTSA's move from the Southland Conference before an announcement of multiple schools is made. The board begins meeting today and WAC members have been alerted by the conference office to expect an announcement "either Thursday or Friday."

    It's time to join the Big West Conference in the other sports other than football. UH would only have to travel to California which would be a huge money saver. The competition would be an upgade.The Big West offers 19 sports and UH competes in 16 of them only the sailing team needs to look for events.
    As for football UH stays in the WAC as a football only member not the best situration but only one team needs to do the crazy traveling. That way we can schedule stong at the beginning or ending of the season when the "Brand Name" teams are more willing to travel that way UH doesn't have to do those body bag games because the middle part of the schedule would be filled. That way if the WAC does fold the other sports will be in a conference and football can easily go independent
