Preseason forecasts predict a 5th or 6th place finish in the WAC for UH

About picking UH to tie for 6th place with Utah State, Phil Steele wrote:
“My main concern is just two returning starters (fewest in the WAC) on defense with 11 of their top 13 tacklers gone. UH will be potent offensively but after finishing first in the WAC in 2007 and second last year, it looks like a bigger step back in 2009.” (HA)

About picking UH to finish 5th in the WAC, Lindy’s wrote:
“Hawai’i will be hard pressed to remain in the upper tier of the WAC. This team is still in transition as it tries to redefine run-and-shoot approach.” (HA)

About picking UH to finish 5th in the WAC, GamePlan Magazine wrote:
“Hawai’i fans have grown very accustomed to winning in recent years, but this looks to be the weakest team this school has fielded in several seasons.” (HA)

About picking UH to finish with a losing record, GamePlan wrote:
“We may be out on a limb here, but we feel Hawai’i is headed for their first losing season in several years.” (HA)
