Warriors anxious to see how UH roster shapes up
With each day, the ticking of the clock pounds just a little louder for the Hawaii coaching staff.
The countdown to the season opener at Florida is down to 27 days and the Warriors -- coaches and players alike -- are anxiously awaiting the start of practice tomorrow morning.
"I know all the coaches are excited to get on the field and get started," UH offensive coordinator Ron Lee said. "I looked at our calendar and we've leaving on the 26th of this month. It's just like, oh my gosh, we've got to start going. It's going to be so fast."
The Warrior veterans are scheduled to report today with the first practice of camp set for 10 a.m. tomorrow.
"I felt pretty good after spring. I'm anxious to see where we're at when we start on Monday," Lee said. "We have a lot of spots open and that's what I'm anxious to start looking at."
Lee's task in preparing a revamped offense for the season hit a bump when the school announced that senior quarterback Tyler Graunke wouldn't participate at the start of camp. That leaves the Warriors with five quarterbacks, with junior Inoke Funaki the only one to have taken a Division I snap.
The quarterback spot is among the position battles to watch over the next 29 practices. A position-by-position look a the Warriors and the Star-Bulletin's Q-and-A session with first-year head coach Greg McMackin appear in today's edition.
