Colt Brennan is Our Winner!

Colt preparing to pass the football

Maybe not the winner of the coveted Heisman, but certainly the winner of the hearts of Honolulu and of the hearts all over the State of Hawaii! He had the stats, he has the talent, he is a senior, but, so be it. Being in third place got him there! He should have been there last year but that’s okay, he was there this year and he was part of the 73rd Annual Heisman Trophy competition.The good part? Since Colt is not coming home with the Heisman, that means he’s not going to be subjected to the Heisman curse! That means that the Warriors should come away victors from the Sugar Bowl! According to the other part of the curse, he should also have no trouble with the NFL draft. But then, we already knew that.

Okay, putting away my crystal ball and the urban legends, I just had a couple of quick thoughts that crossed my mind. Apparently someone called into the sports radio station 1420 this morning and suggested that the University of Hawaii Athletic Department retire his number. Good idea! I like that idea! I’m sure Colt will go in the first round of the NFL draft! I will follow his career as I’m sure many other Hawaii residents will as well.

University of Hawaii’s Athletic Department has certainly put Hawaii on the collegiate map many times in the past. We have enjoyed the winning seasons of the Wahine Volleyball team and the Rainbow Basketball team, but, this year, the Warrior Football team has gone above and beyond to bring home some much-needed financial support for the University.

Thanks you guys!  Looking forward to the Sugar Bowl!

    You’re absolutely right! He’s our Heisman Trophy Winner, and that is a GREAT suggestion. Someone, maybe you, should get a hold of the higher ups at the University of Hawaii and suggest that the Hawai’i Warrior football team retire the number 15 worn by Colt Brennan!! Go Warriors, beat the Georgia Bulldogs at the Sugar Bowl and prove to the rest of the College Football World that this team is for real. Go Colt and do something that even the so-called Heisman Trophy winner couldn’t do, be victorious over Georgia!!!!

    OMG! I had to go Google that remark about Florida vs Georgia… you’re right! I guess I know what I’ll be doing on New Year’s Day — screaming at my television… again. 🙂 Oh man! Winning the Sugar Bowl just got sweeter!

    Yes it sure did! If Colt Brennan and the Hawai’i Warriors do what I think they’ll do on New Year’s Day, it will not only SHOCK the College Football World, but it’ll also prove once again that Junes Jones was right on track when he said to ESPN, that his quaterback Colt Brennan was the BEST college football player in the land, not only this year but last year as well, and well deserving of the Heisman Trophy. They should retire his number (15) and/or name a street after him close to the University. Here’s my predicition of what I think will happen on New Year’s Day at the Sugar Bowl: Hawai’i 45, Georgia 21 (if that much). GO WARRIORS!!!!!
