    And again…their O-Line were the players of the game. They controlled their line of scrimmage better than any other O-Line that Big Red has faced.

    Having said that, Big Red’s D held BG to their lowest yardage stats output, both individually and as a team. Go research it for yourself.

    If the offense had been able to generate more sustained drives, the score would’ve been closer. The defense was consistently having to defend a short field. They did their job…and statistically speaking, they did it better than any of BG’s other opponents.

    And now our D is even more motivated. And our O has something to prove. 😀

    Now what ? Moanalua and Kaiser, blow outs, Kahuku will run up the scores Against these teams, but this year, the ILH will be waiting for your return.

    @ilh:

    I can’t WAIT for when we get to play St LuLu and Puns.

    We just played the best version of their offenses…with the best players at every position. Only Tua is the better QB. Too bad for him that his O-Line is not good at all.

    Our boys will punish both teams.

    States can’t come soon enough!

    RRFL!

    Was not the outcome that we wanted but it is what it is, we got some work to do to finish off our season strong. Hats off to BG and their fans for their kindness and hospitality.

    Of course the defense held them to the lowest amount of yards. If one team (Kahuku) sits on the ball then the other team (BG) will have less possession. Less possessions (chances) usually means they will have less yards since they had less possessions.

    You need to look at advanced metrics.

    How many points did they average per possession?
    How many yards did they average per play?
    Both rushing and passing?
    How many times did they enter the red zone?

    Some of you guys cannot see the whole picture. If one teams runs the ball up the middle, can barely score, and sits on the ball causing the clock to run, of course the other team won’t get as much yards.

    If sitting on the ball takes away an additional 4-5 more possessions, of course BG won’t have an many yards. That has nothing to do with the defense.

    It has to do with possessions.

    Really? That’s like saying, well if Radford has more sustained drives against Kahuku then the score would have been closer. Do you even realize what you are saying and how absurd your comments are?

    And statistically speaking what? The defense allowed 5 touchdowns on approximately 8-10 possessions. That means BG scored a touchdown anywhere from 62.5% – 50% of the time. That is good defense? Allowing a team to score on approximately every other possession?

    You must not have high standards.

    ILH and Education first continue to say Red Raiders run up the score on the teams we play and as if we control the schedule and who we play what a bunch of crap. Kahuku never keeps their starters in the whole game and have never tried to put up tons of points or we could have easily reached 100 several times this year. For the most part, many of Hawaii’s teams do not do that out of respect for the other teams whereas the mainland teams rack up way more statistics than us because thats how you get noticed and helps inflate their rankings. And don’t act like the ILH is not one to rack up the points when not so long ago when you had to play Damien, Pac Five and the weakest of the ILH were you guys putting the hurt on them on the score board and the stat sheet. And Education First who continues to rant and rave about statistics, how money he earns and how much better Punahou is than Kahuku in every statistical category…woopty doo. They better be as they are a private institution of learning and parents/boosters are paying thousands of dollars for their education. If they aren’t scoring high then what a waste of money and effort right? Enjoy your life the way you want (obviously money is the most important thing in yours as well as status) whereas family, church and community rates far higher here. And so what if not everyone isn’t a brain surgeon like you, we are fine focusing on the things we value (cheering for our Red Raiders is one of them) and being with each other and most of us do applaud those who go on to ILH or other High School options and wish them the best but we going to continue to cheer for our boys maybe even more so because of all the hate that has arisen from our loss and the apparent bitterness that seems to fester in locals (?) who have nothing better to do than to talk stink behind an alias and brag about his “earnings and intelligence” that can’t possibly be matched by most Kahuku High School graduates because we lack the sincerity and dedication when it comes to education. You must work for the DOE with the attention you focus so much on standardized tests that have stolen from a true education our kids deserve. Why not make the world (Hawaii new) a better and more positive place than one with strife, negative feelings and bitterness? Come on man…kupuna teaches the importance of being pono, bumble you need a ho’oponopono session with aunty for help you focus back on what is really important. Relationships and people matter my friend, not materialistic possessions that will rot and rust away. Have a great day, week, month…life. No matter what, we will continue to move forward, help our team get better and cheer hard. Go BIG RED.

    Matuu would sasa that edu muli!
    edu has an inferiority complex because he got run over when he played Kahuku in his high school days and he cannot stand to see Kahuku making a name for themselves worldwide. Misery needs company!


  10. anywaaaays!! September 19, 2016 3:53 pm

    Since all these haters in here care about Kahuku so much and are willing to write ten page essays about our team, can you care to tell us how Kahuku held BG to their lowest yard total this season? Defense baby! #maxpreps #statsdontlie

    @anywaaays “edu has an inferiority complex because he got run over when he played Kahuku in his high school days and he cannot stand to see Kahuku making a name for themselves worldwide. Misery needs company!”

    no, my friend. you are the one with the inferiority complex. It’s really sad. But I’m glad that you read my link on inferiority complexes because it shows you can read. Understand this: I’m not hating on Kahuku. I suspect for the most part, the Kahuku community are good people. Matuu Pulotu seems like a good guy even though he doesn’t use paragraph breaks, which makes his posts hard to read.

    YOU, on the other hand, Anywaaays. YOU i have no respect for. Your M.O. is to run your mouth and when people call you on it, you don’t address their posts, you just do pathetic name calling because you can’t handle it. You act like a little boy on a blog and then are like “LOL WHY WHAT SCHOOL YOU GRADUATED FROM??” I would almost suspect that the 808 RR4L guy is you, but he sounds more intelligent when he writes.

    You give Kahuku fans a bad name. This isn’t me hating on Kahuku, bro. This is me hating on YOU.


  12. Jeezy33 September 19, 2016 4:31 pm

    More proof of your immaturity: Matuu made a long post about understanding and ho’oponopono and supporting community. The other post he made was classy and inviting people to discuss football during lunch at a Kahuku restaurant.

    You respond by saying “Matuu would sasa that edu muli!” Which is definitely not what Matuu was saying.

    Think about your life, anywaaays. People pick on you here for a reason, little boy, and it has nothing to do with you being from Kahuku.


  13. AUWE September 19, 2016 5:01 pm

    Game pau! We lost! No excuse! Move on already! Lots of football yet to be played. Good Luck to all hawaii teams ILH and OIA! May the best team come out on top when it’s all said and done.
    And why you all spend so much time arguing @Run your mouf first and Ilove88 is beyond me??? One claims to be a gazillionaire and the other is just plain, well dunno if there’s a word for it!! He can show proof of test scores but can’t show proof of his income lol! Heck I made ten figures selling coconuts on da side of the road last year! And I can prove it! Go outside and look at ur coconut tree, all da coconuts gone..

    Enough of the solitude like 4 hrs in the sky should have made it OK so back to Carlton Weimer to make primitive the cave men in your smash mouth against Moanalua.

    Amazing how much cyber bullying goes on in these comments. Unbelievable!

    Friendly bet $20.00. Kahuku is going to win state championship. We will be back to back state champions. I will be sitting behind the end zone. All is invited. Game will be held at Aloha stadium on November 8 2016. Just a friendly bet. Bring your friends,family and most importantly bring the KEIKI’S. It’s an experience you will never forget. We don’t need to talk. Just come on by and enjoy. RR4L

    Matuu Pulotu writes, “Enjoy your life the way you want (obviously money is the most important thing in yours as well as status) whereas family, church and community rates far higher here.”

    If that is true, why did many parent angrily confront Coach Reggie Torres several years ago when he wanted to implement his own rules that was trying to elevate academic standards? It almost got physical over trying to make academics more important.

    And more recently, several families went after Coach Alan Akina’s job, a man who runs free Financial 101 sessions to help people in the community get out of debt, save their money, and/or invest their money. He also fed many of the kid on the varsity team. In addition he often would drive the kids into town for summer league basketball games.

    Yet parents and kid staged a walk-out in an attempt to get him fired. They sat in the stand to demonstrate solidarity, but it also embarrassed the coach. One mother went as far as going on tv in an attempt to get Coach Akina dismissed or fired.

    And we are talking about a good person who has some success.

    And you are saying community rates higher here? These two situations don’t really support your claim Matuu Pulotu. Kinda sounds like your are talking out your butt.

    It’s called stalling.

    So in 2011, Iolani played Oak Hill. Iolani stalled and Oak Hill scored the least amount of points that entire season. I guess you think Iolani Basketball had the best defense in the world too huh?

    Defense baby! #maxpreps #statsdontlie

    HAHA, this guy might be the dumbest person on this blog. I think it’s pathetic that after you lose a game you are so insecure that you have to come back with, “HEY WE MIGHT HAVE LOST BY 28. WE RAN 3 PLAYS. WE MILKED THE CLOCK. WE SAT ON THE BALL. WE TRIED TO RUN OUT THE CLOCK. BUT HEY, WE HELD THEM TO THE LEAST AMOUNT OF POINTS SINCE WE SAT ON THE BALL. WHO CARES IF WE ONLY SCORED 7.”

  21. Dee Mitchell September 20, 2016 12:15 am

    It’s so sad to read some of the comments here on this forum, the bad mouthing of a few individuals towards a group of young men who lost a football game. These young men from a small school, a small community, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, took their team and played one of the biggest powerhouses in the nation, and lost. So. Although they lost, these young men showed more maturity by accepting the loss with pride and dignity, knowing they did their community and school proud. Their supporters continued to rally around these young men, even in the loss, my question is, ‘Why can you not put away all this animosity and give these players the kudos they deserve, they represented the 808 with much pride.’ Shame on you who can only spout diarrhea from your waha, shame on you.

    Well I was going to pick 88 but it was taken. Then I wanted to use anywaaaays!! but that too was taken.

    I guess numbers that show your kids struggle on academic test as degrading WHEN IT’S THE TRUTH. And I guess telling you guys facts must be ridiculous.

    If you notice, I am one of the very few people that put scientific numbers. I often cite my sources to show credibility behind my statements. And I will even provide numbers such as last week’s post where less than 1% of the student body from Kahuku over the past 10 years have made it to the NFL.

    But then again you went to Kahuku, so you are probably overwhelmed by those kinds of things.

    You are used to run on sentences. Composing pieces with no evidence. Making arguments with no facts or supporting details to strengthen it .

    So I challenge you to comprise a list below of what things I write are both degrading and ridiculous. After you make the list (which I think you won’t be able to) I will rebut it.

    Also, thank you for being the Star Advertiser Blogging Police! I guess I was wrong, I guess if you graduate from Kahuku there are more jobs than just working at the P.C.C. You can also be the blogging police like “FOOTBALL FAN”………………..

    HAHAHAHAH!

    You guys should have held them to 14-21 you sat on the ball so long and stalled. I could practically hear even the Kahuku fans yawning half the time. I talked to about 5 Kahuku Alumni who told me they wished Kahuku tried to win instead of running the ball up the middle, letting 30 seconds run off, then do the same thing over again. After 3 plays they would milk so much time off the clock.


  27. NoCry September 21, 2016 1:11 pm

    Kahuku fans need to be A LOT more humble. This is why most on this forum dis their team…
