Teams Fear Hawaii, Fear the Rainbows

Let me say upfront that I’m a June Jones for several reasons. For one, he’s a really nice guy. Secondly, without June Jones, there would be no Timmy Chang. And lastly, because he gets off some great lines, such as this:

“Teams don’t want to make the trip anymore,” says Hawaii coach June Jones. “They come here, we kick their ass, they go home.”

The NCAA allows Hawaii to play 13 games and allows mainland teams an exempt game for playing at Hawaii. The Michigan State game was the 13th game, and now Hawaii has only one BCS opponent, which isn’t enough to legitimize its schedule.

Well that’s an utter shame. June Jones man, now he is great. Straight up saying we kick everyone’s ass and then send ‘em home. Fantastic. Tell us how it really is why dontcha? Think about it though, would you want to go to Hawaii? They’re a good team that sneaks up on you. They’ll assault you with 400 yards passing and like 5 aerial touchdowns on the Island. They rock at home. I wouldn’t want to go there. Would you? Of course not. Unless you’re on vacation. And therein lies the unfortunate problem. June Jones though, Hall of Famer.

    Hawaii is tough on the island. Teams like Michigan State come in November and December, love the paradise and (at least sometimes) get clobbered in the game.

    Part of it also is that Hawaii will play thugball and gets some hometown looking the other way from the refs.

    On the mainland, Hawaii isn’t to tough…

    lets be fair here JS, Reggie Bush can make the Chicago Bears defense look just as bad as the Hawaii Rainbows. And that’s hard to do.

    No, forget about Reggie Bush, it’s Matt Leinart (then a sophomore in his third start) clobbering the UH defensive back. Check out the Paul McDonald audio comment “a de-cleater for a quarterback, that just doesn’t happen”

    Now that was impressive.

    Yeah, there’s no way I’d go to Hawaii if I was a coach at a major football college… all risk, no reward.
