HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's amazing what a pair of wins can do. For the first time since the start of the 2009 season the Warriors seem to have a different approach to things.
"I guess we developed that swagger you know. It's a great feeling to have. Nobody likes losing and now we're on the other side of the ball and you know it's fun. Everyone's excited and everyone wants to come out to practice," Linebacker, Blaze Soares said.
That swagger needs to carry over for a 3rd straight week if Hawaii wants to keep their bowl dreams alive.
Next up is San Jose State. A team who over the last 2 years have given UH all they could handle. In 2007 the Spartans lost an overtime thriller on national TV. Last year Dick Tomey and crew beat UH for the first time in 7-trys. While the 2009 version has won only a single game. The Spartans do have some added incentive this week.
"They have nothing to lose. They're coming to stop our streak and end our chance at a bowl game. And their coach is retiring so they want to play hard for him. So we just got to scheme like we've been scheming for all the other teams," Warriors QB, Bryant Moniz said.
Scheming is something Tomey's team does well. Last year San Jose opened up with a play from their bag of tricks.
"They faked a field goal against Utah State last week and i think we're going to have to be ready, i had told the guys today, for a lot of tricks," Warriors Coach, Greg McMackin said.
