Looks Like It's ADMU Again This Year

I can’t emphasize enough how deep a hole FEU has dug themselves in that 49-72 whipping they got from ADMU last Saturday. At the mid to latter part of the first quarter all the way into the second, they played with that deer – in – the – headlights look, looking all they could like a Juniors team. That sort of thing happens occasionally, but good teams tough it out and rely on their execution to bring on their own game. Thing is, ADMU didn’t even look like they were trying. FEU completely brought it on themselves, suddenly disappearing even if ADMU wasn’t doing anything special.

admu’s lead is easy to explain. It’s an FEU meltdown, nothing less. They have wilted under the pressure.

Why Even Try?

I came across an article the other day about how the UP Maroons have become so irrelevant that UP students and alumni don’t bother to care anymore, and that it has been suggested they should just give up Men’s Basketball altogether.

Now isn’t that brilliant? I mean, the sheer logic of it is so unbelievable, it just hits you like a ton of bricks. A ton of logical bricks. And you know while we’re at it, why not let’s brainstorm a few other things we should just give up as well!

Academics – Yeah you know, all those books and studying weighs on you doesn’t it? I mean, do we really need all of that? Of course if we give that up it means we won’t have any lawyers, doctors, engineers, not to mention just plain old graduates anymore, and we’d all revert back to living in trees. But isn’t that so much fun that hitting those books? Think about it!

The respect of your peers – Anytime someone questions your character, just play the ‘who cares what you think!‘ card, and pretend you don’t care! It’s easy. All you have to do, is really not care. About others, about yourself, and what you might do to affect the coming generation. It’s fun! Our politicians do it all the time and look how fat and happy they are!

UAAP FB Hilarity & Helping Agnes Look For A Basketball Coach

This is the 1st year we’re gonna see how Facebook is gonna affect the UAAP, and I’ve been joining UAAP and NCAA FB groups everytime I happen onto one just for the heck of it. Most, if not all, I’ve joined are unofficial groups but the most ‘fun’ I’ve joined has to be this one, primarily because of daily messages and comments like these:

Ok I admit, it’s not entirely funny. I mean, it’s funny at the start, but a split second later you’re thinking.. Good Lord how is the Philippines going to survive today’s youth?

UAAP / NCAA Code Of Conduct – BallEx Style

I happened onto the UAAP Fan Code Of Conduct and read it with some interest. ‘Some’ because this is all stuff all of us should’ve known and follow wether it’s written down or not, and secondly because writing them down is one thing, implementing them is totally something else.
So in the spirit of writing down rules that are best to be taken with a grain of salt, over my morning coffee I’ve decided to make my own.
So without further ado, Ladies and Gents, herewith is my BallEx Code Of Conduct. Check it!
  • UP fans will stop referring to themselves as smarter than everyone, primarily because these contests will involve athletics and not academics (and if they were smart they’d know that).
  • ADMU fans will reconsider saying ‘win or lose its the school we choose’ because, frankly, I doubt any of us chose the schools we graduated from on the basis of their UAAP/NCAA performance. Otherwise we’d all have gone to Taft.
  • NU students will refrain from becoming fans of the Bulldogs for a period of one (1) year subject to the fact that it’s tasteless to find yourself suddenly becoming a fan after your team instantly becomes a contender via an infusion of SM money. Only previous NU fans, particularly those who stuck with them through thick and thin, are allowed to remain fans this year.
  • Anyone thinking of bringing a vuvuzuela to the games should just stop.
  • Fans carrying signs or wearing clothing with obscene, deregatory or indecent messages will be requested to discard said sign/wear the shirt inside out. Smart-aleck fans guilty of above will not imprint obscene, deregatory or indecent messages on the insides of their shirts.

Investigate, Or Wave Bye-Bye To The UAAP

According to a letter issued by a CHED OIC Director, former ADMU player Jobe Nkemakolam, previously the subject of yet another UAAP Men’s Basketball controversy, was eligible for College and therefore cleared to play during the time he was on their roster.

To recall, a certain Atty. Levito Baligod filed a complaint with the UAAP Board, claiming that Nkemakolam was not qualified to enter College and therefore ineligible. He presented evidence ie. a CHED statement issued Sept. 3, 2009 stating that Nkemakolam “has not met the academic requirements to graduate from high school, hence, he is not qualified for admission to college.” The document was signed by a Lilian B. Enriquez, Officer-in-Charge, Director III. Reports via inboundpass and uaapsports.com.

Also contested by Baligod was Nkemakolam’s graduating from Reedley International School, providing evidence stating the school has no record of his attendance for Grade 12, the equivalent of 4th Year High School.

FEU Needs To Make A Formal Accusation

Accusation, accusal (a formal charge of wrongdoing brought against a person; the act of imputing blame or guilt).

These days, Mark Barroca is in the hotseat. FEU has recently said more or less, that the reason he isn’t playing is either because ‘the team expressed dissatisfaction with his playand / or he ‘gave in to temptation‘. On the other hand, Barroca himself issued a statement detailing how sorry he is about what happened (whatever it is), and how he is moving on (again, from whatever it is).

The problem is, there cannot be any moving on, there cannot be any apologies or acceptance of apologies without primarily explaining what it is he’s accused of having done.

Otherwise, there are two scenarios:

One: Either Barroca has been a victim of mismanagement – because you can’t just kick a player out due to ‘bad play’ or

Two: He’s getting away with murder – because if he sold a game, he has more than FEU or the UAAP to answer to.
