    Aloha everyone, just wanted to drop by and say hi! I don't understand why the early line would be so high, especially since you've had a couple of years of good recruits and We lost so many starters on offense last season. 3 of which were impact players that were drafted this year. We are very optimistic about our defense this year and with the return of our Heisman hopeful "Mighty Mo" we're hoping that the offense will be in full stride by our 3rd game. Good Luck and here is to a lot of awesome discussions!

    Nice to see some Hawaiian outreach. Is it impolite for a mainlander to say "Aloha?". If so, "Aloha." That is coming from a how-oh-lee wearing a Wal-Mart bought polyester Hawaiian shirt.

    I just read your thread about the Colorado game. With Abs playing ambassador over there, it was like an echo chamber. There was even a link back to Allbuffs.

    It cracks me up how there is some itchin' for some smack-talk. CU hasn't brought the heat, like Mich State or Alabama.

    I can only imagine it going something like this...

    Alabama fan: "We're gonna mud-hole you island furkers. ESsssss Eeeee Cseeeeee speed! The south has better BBQ, too."

    Michigan State..."Was it Jesse Jackson or the cast of Glee that caused Hawaii to drop the word "Rainbow" infront of the Warriors? Own up to your island and WAC gheyness. What kind of poof brews beer with passion fruit anyway? [​IMG]

    So now that I've broken the ice, mostly because of that dip**** "Ralphie on the barbie, oi oi oi" post and the limp dick LOL emoticons that followed, lemme return the favor and show you macadamia butt munchers how it's done.

    This is a photo of Scotty McKnight catching a tipped ball for a touchdown last year. And, yes, Hawaii fans...he caught that because of the altitude and because your island boys were gassed.

    Scoreboard!

    That line is too high. Of course, nobody knows what to expect from CU this season, but based on last year's game and the number of returning players on both teams, the spread shouldn't be more than 3 1/2. I guess we'll see in a month.

    I believe that we will win this game but I am not shocked to see that others don't. Our current group of players has notoriously underperformed on the road and our coaches are something of an unknown quantity.

    Well the odds are def against us.

    17 game road losing streak
    2 of last 11 CU headcoaches have won their debut
    And 0-2 in the last 2 openers when not opening against CSU. One of those teams was a WAC team (Fresno) and the other was Montana st.

    Lets end these streaks!

    I believe the line actually opened at 11, so it's already come down a bit. We will see if it drops more as we get closer to game day.

    wait, I am bad with the gambling thing. Colorado +7 means that we are predicted to win? And if you take that bet and cu wins by 6 points you loose the bet?

    Or is Hawaii supposed to beat us by 7?

    Sports betting is kind of like medical tests. Your team being negative is typically a good thing as it means your team is expected to win. If Colorado is -7 they are expected to win.

    Yes, I think it did open at 11 but came down to 7. My best guess would be that it will level off and end up at 9.5 on game day. :)

    What the warrior fans were talking about when they spoke about gassing in the second half was because we opened the season to play USC, then travelled to the east coast to play army and went straight to Colorado. I promise not to bring up the subject of high altitude if you promise not to talk about the heat and humidity when they come to Hawaii. Most of the teams that visit Hawaii these days do a much better job with hydrating days in advance and they even rent those huge misting fans. If you hydrate well then you won't have guys going down for the count with cramps in their legs. The game starts about 4PM hawaii time so there will be a good amount of sun for the first half of the game. Another big tip is DO NOT GO TO THE BEACH UNTIL AFTER THE GAME! LOL, very important for those who don't bask in the sun on a regular basis.

    Cmon, even Colorado has their share of fru-fru beers.
    Orange Blossom Pilsner
    Sea Dog Blue Paw – Wild Blueberry Ale
    Gaelic Ale ....what kind of name is that? ROFL

    I'm not here to troll or trash talk, just wanted to start talking about the season opener with fans just like us. :) Let me throw an olive branch by sharing with you last months Sports Angel. :)

    Mahalo,

    P.S. anyone can say Aloha as long as you mean it. :)

    @ Scott/Sports Hawaii

    The smack is all in good fun. The olive branch is much appreciated, as is the hot slice of cheesecake. She would look even hawter wearing a garter like the ones adorning Hawaii's new 2011 pants. ;)

    If I had to critique your reply, it's a solid B effort. Retaliation with fruity Colorado craft beer stung a little bit, but it was predictable. Coloradans put all kinds of strange infusions into their suds. You probably could have found some Colorado craft brew pub run by nudists who lace their beer with rose hips and lithium spring water.

    Either out of mercy or ignorance, you stopped short of calling Colorado out for unleashing Zima on the world.
    Half of the unwanted pregnancies in East Lancing, Michigan and throughout the entire state of Alabama were conceived by teenage girls who were drunk on Zima. The spawn of these pregnancies often end up as smack-talking football fans on Internet fan sites. I know I did.

    So let's get back with the football talk. The heat in Hawaii might cause a few cramps. I'd point out that 17 players on the CU roster and several more coaches are from Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, or Camaroon mother ****ing Africa. There are some kids who are no strangers to two-a-day practices in triple digit temperatures on practice fields laced with goat head burrs and cracked dirt.

    The Buffs know a thing or two about Hawaii and the afternoon heat. The Hawaiian player pipeline is one of my favorite recruiting story lines at Colorado. CU coaches Cabral and Mike Tuiasosopo are no strangers in the islands. Cabral hosts football camps in Hawaii in the summer. We also have five Hawaiians on the roster: OL Paulay Asiata (St. Louis), OL Kawai Crabb (Punahou), DE Juda Parker (St. Louis), OL Sione Tau (Damien Memorial), LB KT Tu'umalo (Punahou). We've seen some great Hawaiians matriculate through Boulder over the years, like Jordan Dizon, BJ Beatty, and Chris Naeole, to name a few.

    [​IMG]

    The heat in Honolulu is NOT concern, and won't be an excuse in the event of a loss. I'm confident that CU's coaches will keep the players from being distracted by Waikiki beach and other island charms. These players will be arriving in top shape, with the sole mission of getting the road monkey off of CU's back. The Buffs will be coming to Hawaii for a win and a brick. Embree has declared Hawaii to be a Brick Game, which means that a victory will be memorialized on a brick in the athletic department wall. Passage to Aloha Stadium will not be entrusted to the weak or timid.

    In closing, CU beat Hawaii last year with arguably the worst coach in the program's history. The same QB, both 100 yard rushers, and much of the o-line that beat Hawaii last year are back again this year. CU's d-line looks to be better this year. This is noteworthy because CU held the Warriors to 7 yards rushing in 2010. Your Heisman hopeful QB Bryant Moniz and his newly tattooed index finger is going to have to try to beat the Buffs through the air and try to exploit CU's depleted secondary.

    Hawaii has 3 returning starters on O...3. They lose 4 O-line, their best running back in years and 5 of the top 6 wide receivers. Hawaii will be breaking in a LOT of new people in game 1.
