Colt Brennan hopes to be drafted in the NFL

Colt Brennan hopes his name will be called on Saturday April 25 as that would put him in the first three rounds of the 2008 NFL draft though getting the call on Sunday wouldn't be the end of the world.  We will find out this weekend if he is drafted and if so where and by whom.  "You really don't know... several teams have shown strong interest" said Colt Brennan.  Predictions have him going as high as the second round all the way to not being drafted at all.  Global Hawaii thinks that somebody will take a chance on Colt Brennan in the 4th or 5th round. Brennan is also recovering from minor surgery to repair a partially torn labrum but should be ready for practice if drafted.  He will watch the draft on the mainland with his family.  Good luck Colt!

Georgia dominates Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl

Hawaii's great season ended with a thud at the Sugar Bowl as Georgia dominated Hawaii 41-10 in the BCS Sugar Bowl.  It was nonetheless a successful season for June Jones and his Hawaii Warriors as they finished the regular season undefeated season and their first solo WAC championship as well as a big $4 million dollar payday for the Sugar Bowl.

 

Colt Brennan graduates, Sugar Bowl awaits

Its been a great year for Colt Brennan, first the WAC championship, then the undefeated season and a BCS Sugar Bowl invite, followed by his Heisman finalist appearance in New York and now Colt Brennan college graduate.  Brennan received his bachelor's degree in communications and proclaimed "Of all of the accomplishments and great rewards, getting a degree takes the cake."  Global Hawaii would like to congratulate Colt Brennan and along with Hawaii hope that he gets a Sugar bowl victory as a graduation present.

Tim Tebow wins Heisman, Brennan finishes in third

The Heisman selection committee awarded the 2007 Heisman Trophy to Tim Tebow of Florida.  In second place was Drren McFadden of Arkansas followed by the Warriors Colt Brennan and Mizzou's Chase Daniels.  For the complete vote count see BoomHammer Heisman Votes.

Colt Brennan named Heisman Finalist

The Heisman selection committee named Colt Brennan one of four finalists for the prestigious Heisman Trophy award.  Brennan becomes the first Hawaii player ever invited to New York as a finalist.  He is joined by Tim Tebow (Florida), Chase Daniels (Missouri) and Darren McFadden (Arkansas).  For more details on the Heisman finalists visit BoomHammer Heisman Finalists.

Hawaii versus Georgia in the Sugar Bowl

It's official Hawaii versus Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.  The announcement came as thousands of screaming fans joined the Warriors at the Stan Sheriff center to await the announcement live on FOX.  This is the first ever BCS bid and only the second mainland bowl for UH (the other being  the Holiday bowl).  Tickets will go on sale shortly are are expected to start at $125 but what might be the bigger problem is finding flights to Louisiana which is also hosting the national championship game and a lot of New Years celebrations.

Hawaii beats Washington and goes undefeated and hopes for BCS bid

This must be the team of destiny as not even a 21 point Washington lead (twice) could stop Colt Brennan and the Warriors of Hawaii as Colt Brennan threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grice-Mullen with 44 seconds left to lead Hawaii to a 35-28 victory over Washington and an undefeated season.  Hawaii is hoping to receive a BCS bid from the Sugar Bowl for the first time in history.  Brennan was near perfect on a night where UH needed every one of his 42 completed passes out of 50.  Brennan threw for 442 yards and 5 touchdown passes with no interceptions.  Frenzied fans chanted "BCS! BCS!" as Brennan capped off a season in which he has thrown for 4,174 yard and 38 Touchdowns.  Jason Rivers was his leading receiver this night with 14 catches for 167 yards and four touchdowns.

Brennan break record and leads Hawaii to WAC title with win over Boise State

Colt Brennan lead the Warriors to their first outright WAC title and kept them undefeated as Hawaii beat Boise State 39-27.  Brennan stated "That's three weeks in a row the so-called experts said we were going to lose and we didn't".  Added coach June Jones "He was the best college football player in America last year and still is this year".  Brennan finished the game 40 for 53 and 495 yards and 5 TD passes and one TD rush.  He broke Ty Detmers record for career touchdown passes and now has 126.  Davone Bess also had a school record 15 catches two touchdowns.  After the game a jubilant sold out crowed rushed the field chanting BCS as a victory over Washington next week could lead UH to a potential Sugar Bowl matchup against LSU

 

Tyler Graunke and Dan Kelly lead the Warriors to Victory

Hawaii played 3 quarterbacks in the first 3 plays to confuse Nevada as Colt Brennan, Tyler Graunke and Inouke Funaki each played a down.  Ultimately the Warriors decided to rest Brennan after his concussion last week.  Tyler Graunke passed for 358 yards and two TDs and Dan Kelly kicked at 45-yard field goal with 11.7 second left to keep the warriors undefeated with a 28-26 victory over Nevada. 

 

Colt Brennan ties record, gets knocked out and Hawaii beats Fresno State 37-30

Colt Brennan tied the NCAA record for most career touchdown passes and led Hawaii to a 37-30 victory over Fresno State at Aloha Stadium.  Brennan passed for 396 yards and 2 touchdowns typing Ty Detmer's record of 121 touchdowns in a season.  The game will be remember though for a vicious hit by Bulldogs linebacker Marcus Riley that knocked Brennan out cold and left him with a concussion early in the 4th quarter.  Backup QB Tyler Graunke filled in to preserve the victory for the undefeated Warriors now 9-0 and along with Kansas the only undefeated teams left in college football.

Colt Brennan back in Heisman and BCS run smashing New Mexico 50-13

Colt Brennan is back feeling comfortable at QB which was bad news for New Mexico as Colt passed for 6 touchdowns , 425 yards and a 50-13 victory over New Mexico State.  Colt Brennan has now passed for 2820 yards or an average of 403 yards per game and 26 touchdowns and has a quarterback rating of 107.5.  This puts his name back in the Heisman race after being slowed by injury.
 

Brennan saves the season with comeback 42-35 OT victory over San Jose State

It was all but over with the Warriors trailing 35-21 in the fourth quarter and as Hawaii faithful starting thinking of what might have been, Colt Brennan hit Davone Bess for a 11 yard touchdown strike to close the gap but there was only 3:53 left and it still seemed hopeless until Blaze Soares caused a San Jose State fumble and Brennan lead the Warriors to a touchdown sending the game into overtime where Brennan struck again and Myron Newberry intercepted the San Jose State chance to tie it up.  The Warriors win and move to 7-0 and the BCS dream is still alive.  Hawaii is currently ranked 18 in the first BCS poll.

Colt Brennan returns to lead the Warriors to 48-20 win over Idaho

Colt Brennan returned to action against Idaho and threw 3 touchdown passes and ran for another leading Hawaii to a 48-20 victory.  Colt was still hobbling at times and threw a career high 5 interceptions which may have hurt his Heisman chances.  Brennan's 3 touchdown passes moved him to 5th on the NCAA all time career touchdown pass leaders behind Ty Detmer, Tim Chang, Tim Rattay and Danny Wuerffel.  If he regains his health he is easily expected to pass Ty Dtemer's 121 TD passes since he is already at 108 with 7 games remaining.

 

Brennan watches as Hawaii thumps Charleston Southern 66-10

Colt Brennan sidelined by injury watched his backup Tyler Graunke and the Warrior defense shut Charleston Southern down.  The game remained close until halftime with the Warriors leading 21-7 before they turned it on and cruised to an easy victory.  Despite not playing Colt Brennan still leads the nation in points responsible for with 32 per game and in total offense at 432 yards per game.

Colt and the defense demolish UNLV 49-14

In a different turn of events Heisman candidate Colt Brennan rushed for 3 touchdowns and passed 2 more as the Warrior defense shut down most of UNLV's game.  Brennan was slowed just a little by a swollen right ankle but neither that nor the Rebel defense could stop Hawaii, who ended up a successful 11 day road trip with 2 wins and a well deserved flight back to the islands.

Brennan and the Warriors trip up Louisiana Tech 45-44

It took all that Hawaii had to knock of the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech.  A 43-61 completions and 548 yard plus 4 TD's for Heisman candidate Colt Brennan, an amazing 49 yard field goal by Dan Kelly and a 2-point conversion pass knocked down by Gerald Lewis to provide an amazing finish to a great came and keep Colt's Heisman chances and a run for a Warrior BCS berth still alive on a day when Nevada, Fresno State and Boise State all fell to defeat.

Colt leads Hawaii to Blowout of Northern Colorado 63-6

Heisman Trophy candidate Colt Brennan need only half a football game to put Northern Colorado away and stamp his name as a leading contender in the Heisman race.  He threw for 416 yards and 6 (SIX) touchdowns, giving him 99 TD in his University of Hawaii career.  Colt was 34/40 passes with no interceptions.  We will continue to track his progress over the year.
