Continuing our weekly series of interviewing a writer who covers the Cougs' upcoming opponent, we hooked up with Honolulu Advertiser writer Stephen Tsai, who has been covering the Warriors for more than 20 years. (I am not making that up.) He has an excellent blog, The Warrior Beat, which you can check out for the latest news on Hawaii leading up to Saturday's contest.
Topics covered in the 15 minutes include ...
- How Hawaii is feeling about its narrow victory over an FCS school.
- Offensive weapons Greg Alexander and Greg Salas, who torched the Cougs last year.
- Defensive schemes.
- And more.
You can listen to the audio in the player below. I chose to use the expanded player for a couple of reasons.
- We finally got our feed sorted out and are going to use Podbean going forward; the player has a link for subscribing to the new feed. (Sorry if it screws up your previous subscription; we were having all sorts of problems with the TalkShoe feed that could not be rectified.) Click that, and it will take you to a page where you can subscribe to the player of your choice.
(If that doesn't work, you'll have to add the feed manually. Good directions for doing that in iTunes are here if you don't know how -- the feed url is http://cougcenter.podbean.com/feed/)
- If you've missed any of the past podcasts, you can listen to them out of this player.
One cool thing about Podbean is that it gives us our own podcast page, which you can find at http://cougcenter.podbean.com. The site gives you access to all of the podcasts and their files, as well as a variety of ways you can subscribe. You also can see all of our Podcast posts by clicking on the "Podcasts" category at the top of this post, or in the sidebar down the left.
One more quick thing: Consider this post a call for questions or topics you'd like to see us touch on in our regular CougCenter podcast, which we'll be recording tomorrow night. Additionally, we're also considering doing a live call-in show at some point, but we're not quite there yet. Maybe next week. Let us know if that's something you might want to participate in so that we can gauge interest.
