Washington Vs. Hawaii: Two Warriors Reinstated

The Washington Huskies will rebound from a mediocre showing against Eastern Washington and need to recover against the Hawaii Warriors, who will be returning two starters suspended from their opening week victory against Colorado.

The Washington Huskies don't have much time to evaluate all that went wrong (and a LOT went wrong) in their season-opener against the Eastern Washington Eagles. They have to get back from their meandering in the Puget Soundand steer that boat to get ready for the Hawaii Warriors, a team that's already beaten one Pac-12 squad in their season opener. Colorado is probably a tad bit weaker than Washington talent-wise, and Hawaii was on the home isles as opposed to playing on the road, but after UW's Saturday scare they can't really count on playing to talent alone.

Hawaii might have more talent available, as two players who missed the season-opener could be on their way back. Stephen Tsai of the Warrior Beat for the Honolulu Star Adviser has more.

Head coach Greg McMackin and athletic director Jim Donovan have completed their investigation, and linebacker Aaron Brown and left wideout Darius Bright will not have to serve an additional suspension. They were benched for last night's game because of their arrests last week following their alleged involvement in a fight in Waikiki. McMackin is expected to impose community-service requirements on the pair.

Brown and Bright were arrested after a fight in a nightclub.

Now with the Warriors at closer to full-strength, Washington will have a better chance to show that they're better than their opening game showing. Their defense will sure need the test after getting gashed by Eastern Washington.
