SJSU Reviews, Hawaii Bowl, Colt

Dave Reardon reviews five big plays from UH's 41-7 victory over San Jose State.

Thanks to UHSJSU2010, who has a few of those highlights as well as many others up on Youtube. Here's Aaron Brown's pick six:

Stephen Tsai talks to Bryant Moniz about his game vs SJSU and breaking Colt Brennan's record.
Neither offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich nor Moniz was aware of the record at the time. Rolovich said it was the plan to play the first-team players that series. The reserves were used in the ensuing series.

"I had no clue," Moniz said. "I thought the record was 700-something, for some reason."

He added: "It's awesome any time you do something like that. Every player wants to leave (his) mark on (his) school. It's a great honor, really a great honor."
Ferd Lewis looks at UH's potential Hawaii Bowl opponents.
Under certain conditions, the Hawaii Bowl could even end up with the C-USA champion.

"With C-USA having three teams receiving votes in the polls and the potential of a nine- or 10-win team, I'm excited about the possibilities," Matlin said.

Tulsa, Central Florida and Southern Mississippi are all 8-3 with one regular-season game remaining and in the running for the C-USA championship game, which matches winners of the East and West divisions.
Although SMU has not been removed from consideration for a Hawaii Bowl return, organizers of the Armed Forces Bowl, which will be played in the Mustangs' Ford Stadium, would like to keep the team home in Dallas.
Lewis writes that UH's current fiscal situation will make it difficult for Greg McMackin to cash in on this year's success.
The department is running an accumulated net deficit of $9.58 million built up over the past nine years and is pledged to getting into the black, pronto, after deficit finishes in eight of the past nine fiscal years.

The situation is further complicated by football attendance running parallel to last year, as a meager 30,011 through the turnstiles Saturday night illustrates. Moreover, pay-per-view revenues were trending down as much as 10 percent, according to what a Board of Regents audit committee was told recently.

Oh, and by the way, there will be ready moolah needed for Big West and MWC issues plus assistants to pay.
Dave Reardon writes about the upcoming Boise State-Nevada matchup and what it could mean for UH.
"Of course," said defensive end Paipai Falemalu, when asked if he'd cheer for Nevada for a few hours Friday.

Aaron Brown concurred. "I want a ring," said the UH linebacker who intercepted two passes in UH's 41-7 win over San Jose State on Saturday.

If No. 19 Nevada can pull off a major upset by beating undefeated and third-ranked Boise State, it wouldn't only knock the Broncos out of any chance they might have to play for a national championship — or in any BCS bowl game, for that matter; it would also mean the Warriors just need to take care of business at lowly New Mexico State the next day to guarantee a share of the Western Athletic Conference championship.
And KHON has an update on Colt Brennan.
"He's got some lacerations on the face and the ear. An ear needed to have some plastic surgery done on," said Terry Brennan, Colt's father. "There was an eye socket issue, but something that one doctor said we don't even think it's something down the road you'd have operated on."

His family says Brennan is in a lot of pain and remains under under a lot of medication.

"He knows his mom and I are here. But there's been really no conversation at all other than about what hurts, and him tossing and turning in his bed," said Terry.
