Low profile ang karamihan ng alumni ng ibang unibersidad.
Hindi nila kailangan ipagsigawan na proud sila hindi tulad ng graduates ng ibang elite schools na kahit saang usapan gumagawa ng paraan para maipasok na alumni sila ng ganitong elite school.
Parang si Quinito Henson lang, pag sya commentator ng PBA ilang beses mo maririnig ang salitang La Salle masabi lang.
Katulad ni Andrew Tan, hindi yan active sa UAAP pero ibibigay nya dapat yung lupain nya sa Mckinley Hills sa the Fort for free para tayuan ng UE Makati.
of course the UAAP will survive!
pero kung ang tanong - will the UAAP continue to be the premier league without ADMU-DLSU?....the answer is NO!
The 2 schools bring the glamour, competitive intensity and fan base which once resided in the NCAA.
Mababawasan ang glamor ng league especially basketball but UAAP will survive even without the "adopted" schools.
UST, UP, and FEU have solid and competitive sports programs to keep the league up and running, and these 3 schools have already produced several Olympians.
Ateneo is hardly competitive outside of basketball and football. Heck, FEU edge them out in the over-all rankings and they didn't even participate in all of the events last season.
In the surface, the Ateneo-DLSU rivalry in basketball has catapulted the UAAP adding prestige and glamourizing each game. But in reality, having the opportunity to beat great sporting schools like UST, UP, and FEU in a televised basketball game gives them some-sort of credibility that they belong to the same group of schools which have the best sports program in the country.
Ateneo and DLSU can spend all their money in their famed basketball programs but it remains to be seen if popularity and money can earn them an Olympic slot with all the efforts to remain competitive in the UAAP.
A more sensible question is that if they would want to leave the UAAP.
Will UAAP survive definetely YES. UAAP is not merely ADMU-DLSU and it involves other sports not only basketball. It's just that it is the only UAAP event being marketed really well aside from the Cherring competition. Buti nga ngayon they also show football, badminton, volleyball, baseball, taekwando although yung iba delayed basis.
Hoping nga na we can have UAAP TV to encourage the youth lalo na sa province to do well in sports and studies para libre scholarship na sa college. BTW pls do watch other sports live actualy marami din gwapo sa baseball (majority of the gwapo are DLSU-Zobel alumni ) and football (yung isa sa UP kamukha ni NADAL forgot his name) yun nga lang napakainit manood kasi either sa ADMU field o Rizal ginaganap walang aircon hahaha.
no. why? because it's the ADMU-DLSU rivalry that brings money into the league and makes the UAAP board members very happy.
UAAP has been the leading and the most prestigious sports league in the country. In a way, the eight school members also benefits in this league through advertising.
Mabubuhay ba ang UAAP kung walang DLSU at ADMU?
Ang tanong muna eh, papayag ba ang DLSU at ADMU na mawala sa prestigous league na ito? Malabo yan sa sabaw ng dinuguan.
At kung mawala man sila sa UAAP? Matatanggap kaya ang mga ADMU DLSU fans na hindi sila kasali sa ligang ito?
The good thing about UAAP is that it breaks the barrier between the elite and the lower class crowd. Sports lang kumabaga.
ang nangyayari kasi between ADMU-DLSU is a Battle of Supremacy. For what? WALA diba. They are fighting for a non sense rivalry. Kumbaga PAYABANGAN lang kung sino mas magaling sa kanila. At the end of the day, natatalo pa rin sila ng ibang University. Masyadong naging OA na lang kasi yung rivalry between them. Kumbaga papunta na ulit sa dark side yung rivalry na pinipilit nilang buhayin. Why? kasi marami ng nagiging competitive universities. Just like AdU and FEU.
And remind ko lang. Paano ba nakilala ang DLSU-ADMU? Di ba kasi during the time na natelevise ang UAAP game eh peak ng season nila.Which is DLSU-ADMU ang malalakas during that time. Subukan mong mag reign ang AdU,FEU,UST,UE,NU,at UP for 5-10 years ngayon. Tignan lang natin kung hindi sila makilala.
mabubuhay pa rin. pero im sure gagawa na sila ng tie up with UA&P or their respective sister schools.
just for fun, ano kaya kung mag merge na lang silang dalawa?
Ateneo De La Salle Manila University....
Thus, my argument was that, since their children studied in Ateneo and La Salle (children that now occupy influential positions within their respective companies), this virtually assure the continued support for a league where ADMU and DLSU are members of even if it is different from that of the league to where the schools of their parents belong to.
This debate at least in the thread I am following, has nothing to do with their education being the sole reason for their success and fame. I refuse to be sucked into a debate about the quality of education of member schools since it is off-topic. Besides, personally, I prefer the fraternity between the UAAP schools which close ranks particularly when fans from the grand OLD league try to reclaim their past glory.
Honestly, I think your post is close to being off topic.
Just look at the 90's when ADMU had a weak team.
dlsu admu bbal game is a social event!
