Life is Sweet for the University of Hawaii Warriors football team and all of their fans in Hawaii and the world! After winning their last game against Washington State 35-28 on December 1, the next day it was officially announced that the UH Rainbow Warriors (12-0) would be playing the Georgia Bulldogs (10-2) in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in Louisiana.
This BCS or Bowl Championship Series will be played in the Super Dome in New Orleans. The Sugar Bowl football game will be played on New Year's Day, January 1, 2008. We are so happy that we will get to actually watch UH (my alma mater) play a whole game for the first time! Even though the last 4 games have been televised on ESPN, we don't have cable service in the boonies of the Big Island where we live. This time FOX will be broadcasting the game at 8 pm EST, 5 pm PST, and 2:30 with 3:30 pm kick off time in Hawaii on channel KHON. I can't wait to see the Hawaii "underdogs" beat the Bulldogs! I am so happy that my prediction from the last UH Rainbow Warrior Fever post came true!
Besides winning the 2007 WAC Conference Championship title outright for the first time, I predict that we will also beat Washington State on December 1 and have our first undefeated season in the history of the University of Hawaii! Next up, an invitation to a bowl game.
I am still getting lots of searches for people wanting to buy UH football shirts, or UH Wac Champions T shirts-- see link above for where to buy University of Hawaii official logo wear. Read my other post on why Hawaii loves Colt Brennan. He is a also a 2007 Hesiman Trophy candidate--see Colt Brennan's official UH Athletics web page -- and really deserves to win the Heisman Trophy award this year. Talent and breaking records is one thing, but what make everyone love him and the rest of his team mates is their genuine respect and aloha or love for each other.
All of Hawaii is buzzing about this magical team where everything came together this year. There were some butt clenching moments, but in the end their heart and hard work paid off in a perfect winning season--the first ever for the University of Hawaii! Mahalo Guys!!!
