Apparently a team from the east has contacted Hawaii about playing an end of year game this year. Obviously it could be nothing, or not even us. Interesting however.
A football team from the East has contacted Hawaii coach Norm Chow about the possibility of playing a game against the Warriors at Aloha Stadium in December.There are numerous hurdles to ove
Norm Chow said he wouldnt play an extra game with a team that is currently on sanctions
Money has a way if changing minds.
If this is PSU.....I am sure it helps that the media is starting to lay off a bit. They are probably seeing that playing us won't lead to a national outcry.
As soon as I post O'Brien shoots it down in his presser.
Hawaii is broke. Norm Chow probably isn't the one that'll get to make the call on this.
And it's probably not us, although I don't take what O'Brien said as gospel. I highly doubt he would be coming out and confirming it was us, even if we did do that. But I do doubt we are pursuing it now anyway. It would draw the ire of the NCAA, at least this early on in the sanctions.

I am all for this if it were to be true....as for draw the ire of the NCAA? F the NCAA, they've hammered us with their sanctions, they can take away Bill's birthday (he hates them anyway)As long as there are no rules broken, make it happen. If it irritates the clowns at the NCAA, then it's a double win.

By the way, it's Temple. I saw a tweet about it a little while ago...

Yes, it is Temple that is trying to schedule the game.
So I was reading a story on this and PSU should be all over this. IDK why Hawaii wouldn't be all over the fact of getting a 13th game against a big time program at home... Programs would salivate getting 3 home games with PSU with no return trip. Plus I don't understand why more programs aren't all over this loop of traveling to hawaii for a 13th game.
I could be wrong, but I thought the NCAA recently changed the rule so that sanctioned teams can't schedule a 13th regular season game with Hawaii.
BIG mistake to go play there. Ask any coach who's done it. Their refs are all locals and they treat all visitors as outsiders. Nice place to visit, but you're NOT WELCOME if you're playin' da Bows.
Wouldn't surprise me. Emmert makes up the NCAA rules on the fly as it is anyway!
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
