Who Let the Dogs Out?

Well, it was a pretty disastrous night for Hawai'i. Can't say I was too surprised, but I was disappointed. I was hoping they'd at least put up more of a fight. Alas, the WAC is a pretty weak conference, and Hawai`i just wasn't prepared to play with the big boys. They started out making lots of stupid mistakes due to nerves, and never recovered.

And now they might lose their coach. June Jones has been offered big bucks to coach at SMU. It's kind of surprising he's stayed with Hawai`i as long as he has. But he likes the islands, even turning down NFL opportunities because he'd rather live in paradise. So maybe he'll stay put.

Real life has been unexpectedly crazy lately. (Oil hit $100/barrel, and a lot of people are going nuts. If this keeps up, expect $5/gallon gasoline this summer.) So I haven't been keeping up on sports news as much as usual.

However, I did see this. Hank Steinbrenner says the Yankees are still in the Santana chase. He thinks the Yankees' offer is the best the Twins have gotten, and it is still on the table (despite other reports saying it had been withdrawn). He didn't say what the offer was, but it's rumored to be Phil Hughes, Melky Cabrera, Jeff Marquez, and another prospect.
