No bashing please.
1. Rookie-laden team (kuno).
2. They are only aiming for a Final 4 berth and they have already achieved their goal (kuno).
3. This season is a rebuilding season. They were not expecting much (kuno).
4. Gambling syndicates. Benta na naman!
5. Questionable calls by the referees. There must be some bribery involved in the game.
6. MacMac is still not 100%.
7. They have actually exceeded their goal this season since they already managed to win one game against the heavily favored Blue Eagles.
8. Franz was experimenting with new plays in preparation for next season.
9. They were only playing for fun, not to win (kuno).
10. Blame TY Tang for the many turnovers.
11. Yeo was cold.
12. The Mafia manipulated the outcome of the game.
13. GreenDeranged jinxed the Green Archers with his dumb predictions in PEx.
14. The rescheduling of the game for Tuesday worked in favor of Ateneo and against DLSU. The UAAP Board once again made a biased decision.
15. Arana was suspended. He is more important to DLSU than Tenorio is to Ateneo. (kuno!)
And many, many more.
Please feel free to add to the list.
