First Practice, Hawaiian Air Field

Fall practice began today on the fields in Manoa. Here's the official press release from the UH football dept.
Head coach Greg McMackin began his fourth fall training camp with tremendous anticipation. A total of 103 players took the field for the first day of camp, many of whom participated in voluntary workouts during the summer.

They're also getting into the social media venue and have video from practice here.

Stephen Tsai follows the Warriors as they check into their "dorm" for the next few weeks, aka the althetic department dance studios.
Living arrangements are separated by class. The sophomores and juniors are in one room. The seniors and freshmen are in the other room....

Also the NEW field at Aloha Stadium has been paid for and sponsored (and thus named) Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium.
Terms of the multi-year deal were not announced but are expected to be in the range of five years for $2.5 million, people familiar with past discussions have said.

Season tickets are a bit behind in sales this year, but UH is hoping for a late rush of sales.
Through Wednesday, UH said it has sold 19,902 season tickets, 1,088 short of last year's total.

In other good news, we got some votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll with 8, and a #39 ranking. As for our opponents this year, BYU is "ranked" at #43 and Nevada at #50.

And here's video from tonight's news:
