Warriors turn up the heat
From the practice environment to the scout team's packages, the Hawaii football team's focus is starting to narrow as game day approaches.
Coach says Hawaii is ahead of schedule
The Warriors are scheduled to practice at Aloha Stadium today and Thursday, in part to use the heat radiating off the FieldTurf to better simulate the steamy conditions expected to greet them at Florida a week from Saturday. The stadium practices, which are closed to the public, also give the team a chance to work with the 40-second play clock and the coaches' communication system.
The Warriors began the third week of fall camp yesterday with the first units getting a sampling of the looks they expect to see from Florida.
"We're not really game-planning yet, we just wanted to run against some of their stuff offensively and defensively," UH coach Greg McMackin said. "We're going to pick it up and start game-planning and go from there. It's just sort of an introduction. We're a little ahead, normally for the first game we start on Wednesday."
