LOL was that me saying "alumni"? Sorry, I stand corrected. (got carried away )
FEU's recruitment system is definitely at par with the other big boys of collegiate ball. You don't get players like Arwind Santos, Denok Miranda, Celino Cruz, Mark Isip, Ryan Rizada, Mark Barocca, Aldrech Ramos, Reil Cervantes, JR Cawaling and Terence Romeo without a solid recruitment system. They probably don't go the conventional route of getting the blue-chippers from Manila, but their eye for talent is uncanny and impeccable. And like them or not, Montinola and Molina have been integral in stockpiling this much talent in Morayta. And for those who seem to insinuate that the loyalty of these athletic heads should be in question, let's not forget how the Arwind Santos-led Tamaraws bludgeoned the Rich Alvarez-led Eagles some seasons ago, robbing Montinola's alma mater of back to back championships. These conspiracy theories are baseless and unfounded.
I do however agree that Capacio's coaching aptitude played a big role in FEU's disappointing campaign last season. Basketball experts may endlessly argue on what Capacio should or should not have done, but here's my take (just a casual fan's simple observation): Glenn Capacio failed because he refused to make Aldrech Ramos his go-to guy. Let me explain.
RR Garcia deserved the MVP award last season, but I believe that had more to do with Capacio's over-reliance on the dynamic guard than Garcia's value to FEU's overall team success. Before the season started, I expected Ramos to dominate the league. While everyone was saying Paul Lee was a cinch to bag the MVP award, I vouched for Aldrech, alluding to the fact that with the exodus of the previous season's top-notch bigs like Al-Hussaini, Baclao, Espiritu and Llagas, there was no one in the UAAP who could match up with Ramos. With his unmatched shot-blocking skills, his rebounding prowess, his feathery touch for a big man.. I believed Ramos was head and shoulders above the competition.
So it came as a mild surprise when FEU's offense started centering around their backcourt, specifically the ultra-talented Garcia. And honestly, I thought it would actually work. FEU started piling wins left and right, and it seemed that all those pre-season predictions were legitimate. But I always wondered, why isn't Ramos getting enough touches? Why do Garcia, Cervantes and even Romeo get the majority of the plays run for them? Can a team win a championship when their BEST player is not their FEATURED player?
All those worries were realized when RR started firing blanks in the playoffs. Capacio could not adjust. He went to the well much too often. He milked the cow dry. And what's worse, he failed to realize that FEU's advantage over Ateneo was in the middle. Do you really think Ateneo's three headed monster (Chua, Golla, Escueta) could match up with the silky smooth Ramos? And even IF Capacio realized this, I'm not sure if someone used to being the 2nd, 3rd or even 4th option could suddenly become the team's top-dog in that kind of atmosphere, when all the chips are on the line, when everything is at stake.
In my opinion, there lies the downfall of the much-maligned Glenn Capacio. I don't subscribe to the age-old theory that a team needs a top-caliber point guard to win in the UAAP. Heck, Ateneo had Jai Reyes and Eman Monfort (with all due respect) in their three-peat campaigns! On the contrary, I think having a dominant big is essential for any collegiate team's championship aspirations. We only need to scan the last decade's champions to see my point's legitimacy: Rico Villanueva, Arwind Santos, Jervy Cruz, Rico Maierhoffer, Rabeh Al-Hussaini, ... all with championships tucked under their belts, all MAIN MEN of those championships teams. I guess that's what made Ateneo's championship extra special. They won the title without a dominant big. They won the title through sheer guts, through unforgiving defense, through great teamwork, through heart. And lastly, Ateneo won because the opponent's coach failed to fully utilize the one guy they had no answer for.
kung eto ba naman ang babantayan mo at kasabayan mo sa ere eh di mo mababantayan, bakit?! hindi dahil magaling siya at malakas at ma in your face ka or matatakot kang maposterize. hindi dahil mamatay ka sa kakatawa at makakalimutan mong bantayan siya dahil ka sagwaan ng dunk niya. "palaka dunk" ang pinakamasagwang dunk na nakita ko.
so di pa pinapakilala si gino juamao-as as sure in sa FEU? kasama ba siya kila escoto nung pinakilala? info bout the kid? what position?
and for go_tams men have a life. move on alam naman ng lahat kung bakit ka bitter sa FEU dahil sa papa mong napa guwapong si BAROKca. ang pangit naman ng reason ng pagiging bitter mo, literally and figuratively. nag papaka insider wanna be ka dahil kay BAROKca. nag mamagaling ka dahil kay BAROKca. binibigyan mo ng dahilan ang tao na pag tawanan ang pag katao mo dahil kay BAROKca. bitter ka sa school mo kahit go_tams ang pangalan mo dahil kay BAROKca. sama na natin ang mga other names mo na akoy_parangka prangka ka at nagmumukha kang despirado to the point na lumalabas ang pag ka gay mo na parang si Boy abunda dahil kay BAROKca. sinisiraan mo yung mga players like sabi mo pumapatol sa baklang kagaya mo para sa pera etc dahil lang kay BAROKca. bakit isa ka ba sa mga gay supporters ng FEU at naka booking kana sa kanila? wow ha napakaganda ng dahilan mo dahil lang kay BAROKca ginagawa mong s2pd sarili mo typical gay supporter ka talaga. bigyan kita ng work para mabawas bawasan pagiging bitter mo kasi mukhang ilang taon ng issue si BAROKca at ikaw na lang ang di makapag move on eh. stagnant zzhit ka pala eh.

If 'basura' ang ilang players sa team, it is better to get rid of them early than suffer the controversies that plagued the Tams the last few years.....
sayang ang Tams...magagaling ang players....favorites to win the championship the last 2 years....but always losing their composure when it mattered most!
Bakit kaya may mga taong indi makamove on!!Past is past..Nakamove on na kaming mga Tamaraw sa kung ano man yung nangyari noon!Positive kami sa hinaharap at kung maganda man o hindi okay lang sa amin. Support pa rin.Indi lahat ng pagkakataon dapat lagi kami nasa unahan.
Kung tapos na yung era nila RR,Cawaling at Knuttel tapos pangit pa rin yung performance ng team kanino naman kaya sisihin yung pagkatalo. Kay coach o kay player o kay management. Hay indi na namin alam kung san kami lulugar. Kani kanino na lang ibibintang.
Nakakabwisit lang na makapamintas ay akala mo napakagaling sa lahat ng bagay. Manalamin naman sana kung wala talaga putik sa mukha. At puro kapangitan lang yung nakikita sa amin.
Sabi ko nga indi namin hangad na "iplease" kayo lahat. Kung naniniwala kayo sa kakayahan ng team namin.Salamat!!! at dun sa mga indi salamat pa rin dahil kayo rin naman yung dahilan at kung bakit kami determinado sa amin adhikain.
God Bless All!!!
Coach Capacio is the weakest link of our team during these past 3 years. Hindi nya ginagamit ng maayos ang mga players nya. Nagmumukang one-dimensional player si Ramos even though meron syang offensive game(Jump shot). Agree ako kay shanebattier. I hope magamit ni Coach Bert ang mga players nya na kung saan dapat mag-excel ang mga ito, just the way he did it in 2005.

Sus. Kahit sino naman ang i-recruit ng FEU, walang ibabatbat yun kay Great Green Hope Arnold "Ferdinand II" Van Opstal.
kaya ang lakas ding maghoard ng players ang feu, pano atenista nagpapatakbo ng basketball program niyo. dalawa pa sila
about the hoarding.. you can just look at it in two ways.. if you're from a school who can't recruit quality players, you'll call it hoarding ..... you'll call it "future-building", the other way around..
Then the question should be why is it not an FEU alumni?
Before saying it should not be from ADMU or DLSU for that matter as stated in your previous post.
