So Sick of Hearing About the University of Hawaii

Ever since December 1st, 2007 it seemed that every commercial on local t.v. was that the University of Hawaii warriors went 12-0 on the season. It is now December 31st, 2007 and I am so sick of hearing about how great the University of Hawaii is. This is the 1st year ever that they went 12-0. This is the 1st time ever they will go to a BCS bowl game. Yes, the University of Hawaii should be proud of their achievements, but they are not a great team. Here is the reasons why. The only ranked team they’ve played all year was Boise State University. The University of Hawaii has never been to a BCS bowl game. The University of Hawaii is a typical “west coast” team. Stereotypically a west coast team takes the philosophy of 100% all offensive power and absolutely zero defense. Hawaii’s defense banks on that if they can get 1 or maybe 2 stops a game, they can win the game because the offense will outscore the other team. As the rest of the United States knows, defense wins. One of Hawaii’s weaknesses is that they are too much of an emotional team. When playing against weak teams all year in the Western Athletic Conference, otherwise known as the Weak Ass Conference, they are just not prepared to compete at the national level. The deciding factor of this argument will be how they will actually perform against the University of Georgia in the Sugar Bowl in New Orlean’s, Louisiana on January 1st, 2008. We have to wait until then to find out.

Go Georgia!
