    @Alpha Nope. Hes just making sure all you oia fan boys who said Iolani never belong that we all told you they were taking this D1 Ship.

    What’s wrong with being oia fan boy? What qualified Iolani(3seed) to be a higher seed then Baldwin(4seed)? It sure is hell wasn’t their league record. Although Baldwin is not considerd a leauge champ, they had a better record coming to D1, who the hell is “we all”?
