Depth Chart, Iosefa, 2011 Preview

Stephen Tsai writes about the new depth chart, highlighting #1 running back Joey Iosefa.
“He’s picked up the (pass) protection really well,” said Brian Smith, who coaches the running backs. “He’s physical. He’s probably the best we have right now as far as blocking and being consistent. And he’s very quick for as big as he is. He cuts, and gets downfield real fast, real explosive. He has the ability to make someone miss.”
Tsai has some news and notes on Beau Yap, TJ Taimatuia and Will Gregory.
Yap has drawn praise as long snapper Luke Ingram’s fill-in. Ingram has been held out of practice because of a sore shoulder.
The Sports Network has a 2011 UH football preview.

Matt Hayes of The Sporting News lists Bryant Moniz as one of five overlooked players who will be household names by the end of the season.
Here, everyone, is the player you know nothing about – but will by the end of the season. Like heralded Hawaii quarterbacks before him, Moniz will lead a talented Warriors team that could make one of those magical runs all the way to a BCS bowl game.

Timmy Chang couldn’t do it. Colt Brennan did. Now we give you Bryant Moniz – who last year threw for the quietest 39 touchdowns passes in the history of touchdown passes.
Jake Curtis of the San Francisco Chronicle also things UH has a shot at making a run at the BCS.
Which non-BCS-conference school will contend for a national title? Maybe Boise State. Maybe TCU. But we say Hawaii.
One step at a time, one step at a time.
