Looking at an old story I wrote on Rolo: He threw 20 touchdowns in his final three games at Hawaii. That's crazy, even by today's standards.
Coach Polian retained three Ault assistants when he took over Nevada in 2012. Two (Rolo, James Spady) now HCs. Only Mike Bradeson is left.
Following quote came from legendary San Francisco City College coach George Rush for a story I wrote on Rolo when Nevada hired him in 2012.

"I'd be shocked if he wasn't the head coach at a major school in the next five years. I'd be shocked. I mean he's talented." Rush was right.
He's also the perfect hire to get the people in Hawaii energized about football again. That's a special place when the team is winning.
On a personal note, there's nothing not to like about Coach Rolovich other than the fact he's a San Francisco Giants fan. Fine man & coach.

Might be a little awkward if the job comes down to Rolovich and his former coach and then boss at Hawaii, June Jones.

Most Exciting Players to Watch CBB Season
The Wolf Pack will do the pre-game warm-up again before Monday's home game against Holy Names (yes, that's a real team).
Eric Cooper Jr. (11 points) on Coach Musselman's halftime mood: "Just a lot of anger.” Said it was on the players to regroup, up the energy.
Musselman: "We have a culture & standards that don’t change for anybody." Cameron Oliver didn't start because he was late for shoot-around.
AJ West (16 points, eight boards) didn't start because Coach Musselman "was disappointed in his lack of effort this week in practice."
Attendance for tonight's home opener: 5,890.
Attendance for last year's home opener: 5,060.
Nevada wins, 76-73, as Portland State can't get shot up in the final 15 seconds. Wolf Pack moves to 4-1. Next up: at Fullerton on Saturday.
Marqueze Coleman with the bank-shot three to give Nevada a 75-70 lead with 30.5 seconds left. Had one spin out a few minutes ago. Payback?
Key series there as D.J. Fenner hits a 16-footer and then draws a charge six seconds later. Nevada up 72-68 with 1 minute left.
At final media TO (3:32 left), game is tied at 67. Nevada has no answer for Georgia transfer Cameron Forte. 6-7 PF has 21 and eight.
At third media TO (6:33 left), Pack leads, 62-60. Portland State went on 9-0 run before an Eric Cooper Jr. three. West w/16/8; Coleman w/14.
