Local Connection: UH Football

The University of Hawaii football team took care of business this weekend. Notching its first win.

OK… it was a game against a much lower ranked opponent… after two successive blow-out losses…but hey, a win's a win.

College football has come to the point where mid-level programs like U-H must endure mismatches…in both directions… to keep the program viable.  It's a sad reality.

On the bright side…this is a coach and team that has now shown they can handle adversity.  Nick Rolovich has also enforced the message that character counts…and he's willing to bench even key players for misbehavior. That's an important message – especially for young fans.

You got to believe that the hard knocks and lessons learned will set the stage to outperform expectations in their conference schedule.

This is a team that needs and deserves a 12th man – healthy and vocal crowds at the home games. Let's get out there.
