Cole McDonald hopes to bounce back against Fresno State

Rainbow Warriors sophomore starting quarterback Cole McDonald was not happy with how his team performed in last Saturday’s 40-22 loss to Nevada.

“I think it was all self-inflicted. We were obviously the better team but we didn’t play like it. And it showed and that’s why we ended up losing,” said McDonald.

Hawai’i will look for win number seven on Saturday at Fresno State.

The ‘Bows have now lost back to back games for the first time this season. In his third year at UH, McDonald hopes his team can turn it around.

“We just got to minimize the mistakes we make and take advantage of the opportunity at hand that will eventually put us in a better situation than third and long and getting us penalties and ending us losing the game,” said McDonald. “I feel like going forward we just are going to have to execute better and just become more of a fluid unit. I feel like a lot of the older guys, myself included, we’ve lost before. We know the taste. And we know the feeling and it’s been lingering. And when we got the chance… winning a couple games, it was short lived but I don’t think, myself included, any of the other guys likes losing. And we’re going to come off with that  chip on our shoulder and come back stronger.”
