Jones Not Quite Satisfied with Warrior Football Team

HALAWA (KHNL) -  The Warrior football team won their last game by 56 points.  But head coach June Jones says that still may not be good enough.

Sounds crazy. But when you're ranked 19th in the country, are projected to win every game and have a Heisman candidate, it might start making sense.

Of course, Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan did not play that game against Charleston Southern because of a bum ankle.

Backup Tyler Graunke got the start.  Struggled early, before getting into the groove.

The Warrior defense and special teams also chipped in with a touchdown each, as Hawaii pulled away, 66-10.

"I think the biggest thing we took from the Charleston Southern game is that it is a team game. You have to play all phases of the game to get the win," said Warriors head coach, June Jones.  "We're going to have to better this week, obviously, to win at Idaho than we were at home against Charleston Southern. We'll also have to be better at San Jose State and Nevada than we are right now."

Warriors hit the road Thursday.  Saturday's game against the Vandals is 11:05 AM Hawaii time.
