Hawaii turns down $600,000 offer to play Colorado

Hawaii said no to playing Colorado in Boulder, even for $600,000.


The Hawaii Warriors had an offer on the table to be a make up game for the Colorado Buffaloes for $600,000 if they came to Boulder, Colo., on Oct. 19. After almost a week of considering the Buffaloes offer, Hawaii has turned down the offer, according to Stephen Tsai of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

If Hawaii were to take this game it would have been their 13th game of the season, and not only that but an extra trip to the mainland and a back-to-back game away from Hawaii. This might have been a smart move for Hawaii despite being a program that could use the money, but after after travel expenses the Warriors probably would have made just over $100,000 to $200,000 on the trip.

Another reason to say no is that Hawaii would not have two bye weeks and their first off week has already passed, plus they have had injuries pile up so no reason to add more names to that list.

It now looks like that Colorado will be joining Fresno State by playing just 11 regular season games this season.
