Don't hate me for saying these things ha? I mean no offense. The DLSU AS is a strong and competitive team. I'm only sharing my opinion here, based on my point of view.
Moving on, when is the UAAP opening for next season? I think everyone is excited to watch halftime performances for us to be able to have a glimpse of what the squads have in store for us.
Parang naghahamon ang batch 2006 ng AS ng labanan ng abs
excited na rin ako sa uniforms ng mga squads this season 75 at sa CDC. For me, UP, ADMU and DLSU have the best halftime uniforms while UP and ADMU naman sa mga nakaraang CDC.
I have seen UP pep and AS in person. And I think mas malalaki ang boys ng AS. Though may matatangkad din sa UP pep, mas lean ata sila. Sa girls naman, yes, mas malalaki ang AS girls.
My Forecast for CDC 2012:
a. Pyramids: They really set the trend for this criteria. They can do different mountings to 3rd level pyramids (full up to 2-2-1, full up to stag was done in 2009, backhandspring to 2-2-1, 4-4-5), and various transitions of swedish falls (deadman lift in 2009, same transition with 1/4 turn in 2010). Now, straddle pyramids. Double full up is not impossible for UP pep this 2012.
b. Stunts. They already did rewinds, double cupies, flatback to full extenstions. Superb transitions. Kailangan lang ng variation. I've haven't see them doing chin-chins, scales, nikes. Unlike other teams na isang CDC lahat ng forms gagawin, sa UP Pep, installment basis.
c. Tosses. Variations din although their execution is the best. 2011 was the year were all of their tosses have X's except for their double fulls (X Layout, X-Out Full, Straddle to X; bird front x out) and all of them are in Level 6 category.
d. Tumbling. Quantity and variation and AFI ko dito. Supposedly, 5 ang full twsiters nila last CDC pero naglayout lang *** isa due to safety issues. As to form, Napapa-tuck pa *** ibang full twisters nila. Hopefully, they can do arabians, pike open or a modified CDC 2010 tumbling segment with different variations.
a. Pyramids: NCC is their revelation. They were the second team to do full ups to 2-2-1. They did 4-4-5's (although similar sa UP). With UC's coach on their back, they can do pyramid transitions which UC DS does.
b. Stunts. They have the forms. Variations for mounting and bawas lang sa bases. Improving na ang tic-tocs.
c. Tosses. Forms lang ang AFI. They have the variation (I really like their tosses nung 2010). It's nice to see that marami sa flyers nila can do full twist. Before kasi, 1 or 2 lang. And if I'm not mistaken, magkaiba yung nag execute ng double fulls nung 2009 and 2010/2011.
d. Tumbling. Wala na akong masabi. They lead in this department. Better choreo para makita lahat ng skills. Minsan kahit mahirap yung passes, hindi nakikita dahil sa dami ng nangyayari sa floor.
DLSU leads the stunts (full extensions agad, wala nang buwelo), ADMU leads the pyramids (toe pitch to stag, front walk to 2-2-1). Same lang sa tumbling and tosses although lead ang DLSU in terms of choreography.
If not for their errors, 4th place or even a Top 3 finish sila. Drastic improvement sila simula nung hinandle sila ng coach ng CCP. Stable stunts and great choreography. Quantity na lang saka execution.
Faster transitions, modified mountings saka reform sa tumblings ang kailangan. They can do different stunt variations na. Improving na din ang tosses. Hopefully kung kaya, wala nang gapang mounting sa pyramid. Mababa pa din kasi ang score niyan kahit gaano pa kalaki ang ibibuild nila.
Strengths nila ang tumblings and tosses. Improvement lang sa stunts since last CDC, hindi naexecute ng maayos yung partner stunts nila.
Strengths ang pyramids although marami pa silang kailangang iimprove sa other departments.
It would be nice to see ALL squads performing great routines worthy of a top 3 finish. Tipong ito ang score:
1. UP - 97.5
2. FEU - 97.3
3. DLSU - 97.1
4. ADMU - 97.05
5. UST - 97.0
6. AdU - 96.6
7. NU - 96.3,
8. UE - 96.31
Except for a handful of FEUCS fans, everyone seems to be leaning towards UP Pep bagging the top prize next CDC. Hope they won't get complacent. Train lang nang train dapat, like what they have been doing.
^ well, right after the 2011 cdc, maraming ust fans ang naalarma dahil sa isang championship trophy na lang ang lamang ng ust sa up. syempre gusto ng mga taga-ust na hindi ma-break yung record 8 cdc titles nila and the 5-consecutive title run. i completely understand that.

^if the 2011 cdc didnt serve as a wake up call to ust's lax screening process for sdt try-outs then i dont know what will. and if they dont enforce stricter routines, discipline, measures in their stunts i dont see them part of the inner 3 anytime soon.
mahihirapn ang UST SDT to get the crown back this year pero ok lang kung UP pep pa rin ang mag champ PERIOD.
ayyyyyyy ning, why oh why witit mo supportsung at bet tamayo ang alma mater mo sa morayta? why?
