How Colt Brennan helped put Hawaii football on the national map
During the summer before the 2007 season, Sebastianelli saved his allowance and earned extra money by cutting neighbors' lawns. He had one purchase in mind as the college football season drew closer: buying a subscription to ESPN GamePlan so he could watch the Rainbow Warriors in action.
"You didn't have to be an adult, you didn't have to be someone who had watched college football his entire life," said Sebastianelli, who attended the University of Florida and now covers Michigan and Ohio State for BCSN in Toledo, Ohio. "There was just something so [great] about watching those Hawaii teams. There was just something different about them."
