Jeremy, Chris and Matt are back with their season previews and we start with the Hawaii Warriors who bring in a new head coach in Nick Rolovich from Nevada where he was their offensive coordinator. Rolovich is a former player and assistant coach at Hawaii, so he is familiar with the program.

The toughest challenge for the Warriors is the first month where they travel to Sydney, Australia, Ann Arbor, Michigan, Honolulu and then Tucson, Arizona. That stretch is the most brutal in all of college football and not just because of the travel.

Cal has a high-powered offense and then both Michigan and Arizona will at the very least contend for their division and maybe even the conference.

We discuss the keys to the first month and the unanimous reasoning is staying healthy, and then use that month as a way to make the rest of the season seem like a cakewalk.

The Warriors might have just one quarterback this year and the offense has enough returning talent that this unit just might be able to score some points and show signs of life this year. The defense on the other hand might have some issues with transfers and suspended players.

All three make projections and they are not all that good with Mat saying Hawaii will go 2-11 and then both Jeremy and Chris saying a 3-10 record is possible. The best case scenario just might be a little bit higher but this first year will be rough for the Warriors.
