WAC nemesis Hawaii begins spring football practice today, having to break in a new head coach and starting quarterback as well as come to grips with the fact that they were destroyed by a BCS-conference school on a national stage. How is new head coach Greg McMackin coping? Giant glasses of Coca-cola!
In addition to obvious emotional scarring, the Warriors have to deal with the loss of several starters and a change in coaching philosophy.
(McMackin) will keep the run-and-shoot offense, with modifications to take some pressure off the quarterback since Heisman Trophy finalist Colt Brennan won't be back. The Warriors coaches must also determine the best players to fill all four receiver positions and several on the offensive line. Eight starters are gone from the nation's highest-scoring offense of 2007.Hello, rebuilding!
