Scout Bowl 2, UH ponders future

Stephen Tsai recaps Scout Bowl II.
The most innovative play came when Graves threw to slotback Justin Clapp, who then lateraled to Graves.

"That wasn't a play," said quarterback Bryant Moniz, who served as offensive coordinator. "They did it on their own."

Graves said: "That was just an improv. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing. We needed a first down, and we got it."
And Ferd Lewis doesn't know if UH will be around when the new WAC takes shape in 2012.
UTSA and its Interstate 35 "neighbor" Texas State in San Marcos, are expected to accept invitations that will put them in the WAC beginning with the 2012-13 school year.

Whether the University of Hawaii, the WAC's senior member, will be there to welcome them July 1, 2012 is another question. The Warriors are pursuing hopes of a Mountain West Conference/Big West future with independence in football as a possible fallback.

    It's time to join the Big West Conference. 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.(Mens Volleyball already in the MPSF.)
    As for football UH stays in the WAC as a football only member not the best situation 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 or join another conference.
