This game is currently played in Archerpride. The rules are as follows:

I'll start with a statement starting with "Fact or Fiction".

The next poster will quote my statement and say either fact or fiction and state his opinion/s why that poster chose fact or fiction.

After which the poster will make his own "Fact or Fiction" statement.

In the event of two (or more) posters responding to the same statement, the first poster's entry should prevail and the other (or others) should delete/edit their post/s.

Please refrain from making any "comment" posts.

I'll start with:
Fact or Fiction: Rico Maierhofer will be an MVP candidate for season 70.

GHRanger

Fact: Rico's maturity and performance in the off season will make him stand out this coming season. Along with Brian Ilad, they will be the go to guys inside. The team also has a good cast that will complement each other in the season, thus increasing his stats.

Fact or Fiction : This coming season's rookie of the year will come from UP.

Fact or Fiction : This coming season's rookie of the year will come from UP.


Fact. With the recruitment class UP had for this season, this has a high probability to happen. Most notables from the high school ranks are now playing for Joe Lipa. Although we cannot rule out Kirk Long as one of the contenders for ROY plum.

Fact or Fiction: Japs Cuan will have a better free throw shooting percentage this season.

Fact yan para sa akin.

For all his volatility oncourt, Ilad has enough sense to realize this is his only chance to make a name for himself as a player. He won't waste that chance by getting ejected and be meted with suspensions. It is also safe to assume members of the DLSU community has talked to him and made him realize the opportunity that awaits him if he just focus on playing.

Pero aabangan ko pa rin ang muli nilang pagtatapo ni Jervy. ;D ;D

With one more look at you.....

Fiction. DLSU will win but not by more than 20 pts. We have to factor in the first game jitters plus who will be the opponent.

Fact or Fiction: There will be a Jervy Cruz vs. Brian Ilad part 2 (not that I am wishing it would happen).

Fact yan. But I doubt kung si Brian ang magiging pasimuno.

Btw, jitters has no bearing on defense. Sa offense lang yan nagma-manifest.

Fact. UST is the defending champion and with an almost intact lineup, I don't see them joining FEU as one of the defending champions to fail to make it to the F4 the following year. UE is still a force to reckon with. DLSU, we're hungry so a final four appearance is a must as in the previous years.

Fiction.

They might make a late charge, but it will not be enough to make the F4. They will most likely finish with a 6-8 record. But most of the losses will be by ten points or less.

Fact or fiction: UE will make the F4, but will still not be able to go to the Finals.

Fact or fiction: NU is currently under the radar, but will spring a few big surprises and sneak into the F4


Fact: Based from what I've seen on NU in the pre-season leagues and the exposure of Jonathan Fernandez and Edwin Asoro in Harbour Center in the PBL plus a good coach in Manny Dandan can make a very, very competitive team that others should be wary of come UAAP time. As a matter of fact, the Green Archers share some of the misery when they face the Bulldogs as the Bulldogs are one of the teams who are capable of breaking down La Salle's pressure defense efficiently (meaning, breaking the defense plus scoring at the other end).

Fact or Fiction: Kirk Long will get a starting position at any point this season for the Blue Eagles.

Fiction. It was never the habit of Martinez to take that many 3-point shots in a game. We just remember most of them because he takes and makes these 3s when the game is on the line. In non-end game situations, he is forced to take it when the shot clock it running out. His attempts are more of.... Pag naninigas na ang lahat ng kamay ng kasama niya dala ng nerbiyos, he has the heart and courage to take THAT shot. Pang end-game ang tres ng bata.

Fact or Fiction: Gamboa of UP will log the most number of double-double ( points/assist ) than any rookie PG in UAAPs recent history.

Fiction: I don't see Gamboa being an LA Tenorio or a Mike Cortez. I don't recall these two guys, though excellent point guards, having double digit assists. Kung meron man, they are few and far between. Let's face it, a nice pass doesn't necessarily equate to a sure basket in the collegiate level.

Fact or Fiction: Badeer Malabes and JV Casio will be the top combo 3-point shooters in the UAAP this season.

Fact. With Patrick Cabahug becoming the Falcons' main offensive weapon (and a good and talented offensive player at that), we might just see him take the season scoring title. Maybe Asoro can come in close at 2nd. Other teams rely much on team play so I don't see anyone right now who can do scoring in bunches with the coaches' permission of course.

Fact or Fiction: The top team after the eliminations will finish with a 12-2 win-loss card.

Fact. I see the Bulldogs play like the Golden State Warriors wherein they'll bring their streetball type of game, resulting to many points scored. I am not sure though whether they can limit the scoring of the other teams as well.

Fiction. De Asis, Serios, Epres, and most likely, Sison, will start. Mike Gamboa is the most likely rookie to start. Lopez might earn a starting slot at some point. But, you won't see more than 2 rookies to start a game.

Fiction: Japs free throw woes will prompt some coaches to employ a hack-a-Japs tactic at the end game with the game on the line. For all his problems, expect Japs to make around 30-40% of his fts, whereas his 3point shot is more of a prayer. As kid cubao said, about the only time Japs will even consider a trey is a desperation shot to beat the clock. Japs' fg percentage should be fairly high, since the only shots he will willingly take are uncontested fast breaks.

Fact or fiction: Adamson will upset one of the fancied teams in the first round.

OT - Sorry Mods. Just want to share this regarding Japs -

Its interesting to know that Japs never made a 3pt shoot last season. Did a search in ubelt and he was 0/10 last year. On FT shooting he made 16/51 or 31%.

Fiction. With all the not so goods news emanating from San Marcelino, I just don't think the Falcons have the morale to score one. Upsets are more of results from stronger morale and we still have to hear any significant uplifting development from them.

Fact or Fiction: Joe Lipa will assessed at least 4 technical fouls during the season and 1 ejection. ( I am assuming NABRO pa rin ang may hawak ng pito.)

GHRanger
05-11-2007, 06:47 PM
Fact: Medyo notorious na si Coach Joe sa ganyan, di pa UAAP season na eject na siya. May possibility din a mag walk out siya. In this case, is that considered a technical and an ejection? eh siya umalis diba :).

Fact or Fiction: This coming year, Guards and Wingmen will dominate the UAAP in terms of statistical points and pogi points.

pio_valenz

Fiction. Even though Bono, Intal, and David are gone, I expect Jervy Cruz, Edwin Asoro and possibly Rico Maierhofer to put up big statistical numbers this season.

Fiction: Franz will probably stay on for at least 2 seasons more. His replacement will be another La Sallian (Perry Ronquillo?), but not Dindo. After 3 years as UE coach, Dindo unfortunately hasn't shown that he can steer his team to a championship despite having a strong lineup. Franz has shown he can take a relatively weak team to the F4, while Dindo's teams have regularly underperformed in the semi-finals despite running strongly during the elimination rounds.

Fact or fiction: the UAAP board will consider handing over operations to a professional sports management outfit within a few years.

Fact:* It'll be the green team again (i hope :) ) who'll give the blues again over the rebuilding Ateneo.* But i don't discount the possiblity of a major upset given that the Blue Eagles have a huge number of quick guards capable of breaking the press.* It's just a matter of time before they get this monkey off their backs. It could come as early as the first round of Season 70.

To answer animoateneo's Fact or Fiction statement:

Fiction. I still remember the game wherein Ateneo blew out La Salle due to the Blue Eagles' impeccable three point shooting. Time pa ata ito nila John Verayo and Mon Tioseco and Jason Webb was already the main man for the Archers (I am not sure if this was already mid 90's). I decided not to watch the game anymore kasi tingin ko kayang-kaya na ng La Salle ang Ateneo and to my surprise pag uwi ko ng house, my dad told me that Ateneo beat La Salle badly from the outside, tambak pa daw and that time La Salle has the dominant lineup compared to Ateneo.

So even though some would say that La Salle has an advantage man for man in the rosters compared to Ateneo this season 70 iba pa rin ang laban pag La Salle-Ateneo, throw out all the stats because everything can happen.

Fact or Fiction: Chris Tiu will be Ateneo's leading scorer this season (as far as PPG is concerned).

I'm a big fan of this guy though biased my answer still has its own merit. ;D
Fact: Chris will have the green light from Norman Black to shoot every time he's open. If Ateneo can spread the floor with their many shooters (Reyes, Monfort, Barracoso to name a few) coupled with Salamat's dribble penetration, Tiu can/will get a lot of open looks this season.

Fact:* Marcy Arellano has shown leadership qualities since his rookie season.* It's about time he takes up the cudgels in scoring for the Warriors and claim the leadership the team needs to get over that hump called the Final Four.

^^^ Fiction, Jem.

There hasn't been a major fracas in the UAAP in a long while and I think we can thank the TV Coverage as well as the intolerance of the management committee towards such actions for that. Also, getting in a fracas while in college does not exactly endear a player to the powers-that-be (read the PBA, ask Joseph Yeo and Enrico Villanueva).

Fact or Fiction: JRU will be the surprise team of the NCAA in Season 83 and make a gallant Final 4 stand against either Letran or San Beda, but the Heavy Bombers will fall just short yet still earn major props.

Fiction, because 1) Ateneo didn't let Mike Gamboa go for anyone, he went elsewhere on his own volition, and 2) whatever he does, it's going to be a credit to the training he received while he wore the blue and white. At least, someone's going to put that kind of spin on it ;D

If, under the incendiary language, you are simply trying to ask whether Mike Gamboa will lead UP to beat Ateneo sometime this coming season, that's also fiction because I think UP's high-impact rookies (and there seem to be many of them!) are going to have to deliver instantly and as a team to beat Ateneo. I'm not saying that's not going to happen, but Mike's not going to be able to do it all himself.

on Ken Barracoso: i believe he will play better this season because he'll have more playing time. However we don't expect him to replicate his junior's performance that gave him MVP, however i think he'll emerge as a solid role-player and greatly aid Ateneo's cause.



Fact or Fiction: UST will be unable to handle the pressure of being favorites and be the disappointment of the season.


I will have to say fact. They may reach the final four at most but I don't see them recapturing the title. They do not have the underdog mentality that gave them the hunger and fire to beat Ateneo last year.

Fact or fiction: In season 70, Ford Arao will finally play the game all ateneans dreamed he potentially had, becoming a defensive post player with a reliable short-medium ranged shot.

Fact! Arao still hasn't improved one bit since he recovered from his ACL injury. With Rabeh, Baclao and even Jobe playing great games, Arao may be relegated to 4th... The only thing keeping him in team A is the lack of big men to incorporate into team A with only, Rabeh, Jobe, Quimson Baclao and Arao who can play 4 and 5.

Fact.* He's become one of the most, if not the most consistent medium-range jumpshooter in college today.* He's the heart and soul of La Salle's potent offense and daunted pressure defense.* For the few minutes that he played in each of TeleTech's games in the PBL, I would think he made a good account, if not for the team's losing record.

Remember, of all the first time players in the UAAP, Malabes, Marko, Ferdinand and Atkins, have no experience playing in the major collegiate leagues. So, expect them to commit 'rookie' mistakes.

Teka, matagal nang fact yan, di ba? ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Actually, I am referring to the UAAP Board. But I think the league as a whole will remain respectable. The public can still distuinguish between the Board and the League itself.

Fact or Fiction:

With the implications of the new UAAP rule imposing residency on junior players who transfer to another UAAP school upon entry into college, only the juniors squads of Ateneo, DLSZ and maybe UPIS will be able to maintain competitive teams on a yearly basis. (Of course, Ateneo has been at it since their* admission to the UAAP.)

Hard to be sure but i would have to say fact. A lot of teams this coming season won't have dominating big men the likes of Bono or Villanueva save for UST. A lot of teams will depend on their guards for offense like Adamson, UE and ADMU which is why i'm expecting some guards to post stellar numbers this season. IF Jervy Cruz doesn't bag it a guard probably will.

Fact or fiction: The ADMU-AdU game on Sunday will be a tightly fought match characteristic of the previous Falcon - Eagle duels.

Fact: The contributions of Ababou in scoring and his experience will be missed by the UST especially that Duncil is no longer around. As compared to Marko right now, Dylan is more seasoned. We wish both of them well and hope both get well soon (especially Dylan -- hopefully just a mild case of Hepa.)

Fact/Fiction:
One more eligibility issue will pop up near the close of the 1st round.

Fiction. I doubt Cabahug and Tiu's performance this season. Maybe Mark Borboran and Benedict Fernandez.

F or F : Adamson will occupy the last place after the elimination round.

sorry pero malinaw naman wala si tiu sa top 5, ni top ten siguradong wala siya. he's just a good shooter.
