JD talked about the importance of the Hawaii Exemption

HA Note: “In a 10-game season, when it initially was established, that meant an 11th bonus game. The thought was that schools could use the added game to take in enough revenue to help defray the costs of the trip here. Since then, as the NCAA has expanded schedules to 11 and 12 games, the exemption added a 12th and 13th game.”

About the importance of the Hawaii Exemption that Hank Vasconcellos was able to get approved in 1954, JD said:
To be honest, it is something we wouldn’t be where we are right now without. He (Vasconcellos) was a man of vision for the university.” (HA)
