Colorado Reviews, Vaughn Meatoga, Mike Edwards, Brett Leonard

This should be the last round of Colorado-related articles before we move on to WASHINGTON!

Dave Reardon reviews five big plays from UH's 34-17 victory over Colorado in this week's Warrior Replay (subscription required).

In addition to being named the WAC's offensive player of the week, Bryant Moniz received a helmet sticker from ESPN.com's Non-AQ College Football Nation Blog.
Bryant Moniz, Hawaii. Moniz threw for 5,000 yards last season but he helped the Warriors beat Colorado with his legs. Moniz ran for 121 yards and three touchdowns -- the most rushing yards by a Hawaii quarterback since Glenn Freitas had 122 yards and four touchdowns against UTEP in 1995.
Ryan Thorburn of The Daily Camera has a lot of post-game quotes.

Tom Kensler of The Denver Post has some game analysis from the CU coaches.
More than 30 minutes after a 34-17 loss to Hawaii, Colorado offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy emerged from the team locker room Saturday night still shaking his head.
The Ralphie Report takes another look at the game.

Stephen Tsai writes about the return of Aaron Brown and Darius Bright.


Moving on to some odds and ends. Chawan Cut has updated his spreadsheet of opponents' records and schedules.

Tyler Alger of The Garden Island completes his five-part "Kauai Guys" series with an excellent profile of UH defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga.
But for all of the good that Vaughn does on the field, his biggest contributions for the Warriors are off it. Vaughn will be a captain once again this season because of the leadership abilities he shows with the team. Vaughn takes time to give tips to the younger players on the team, especially his fellow Kauaians, Siasau Matagiese and Sean Shigematsu.

Both Matagiese and Shigematsu said Vaughn has played an intricate role in their development as football players. As a defensive lineman, Metegiese learns from Vaughn first hand. He can mimic what Vaughn does and has a great resource in his senior teammate if he ever needs it.
Here's an interview Leahey & Leahey did with Vaughn right before the Colorado game. Check out the Leahey & Leahey archive page for more interviews, including recent ones with Jake Heun and Dick Tomey.

Kevin Riley also had a great profile of cornerback and kick returner Mike Edwards on the Bleacher Report.
Edwards said he is excited to be in Hawaii, "Just because they allow me to be here. Allow me to have peace. Allow me to have freedom, and I love them for (that). And I love them for allowing me to go into Aloha Stadium and play my first game here this weekend."
And Ka Leo O Hawaii has an interview with offensive guard Brett Leonard.
