San Beda still open for UAAP transfer

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

abs-cbnNEWS.com | 07/08/2009 4:19 PM




MANILA -- While saying it’s not closing the door for a possible transfer to the other league, San Beda rector Fr. Mat de Jesus, OSB, said they’re happy to be in the NCAA.

“San Beda is grateful to hear that from Mr. Montinola,” said de Jesus, the league president whose school is hosting the ongoing 85th NCAA season, in statement yesterday.

“But as current NCAA host, San Beda College plans to make this year the most memorable and exciting as possible.”

Management Committee chair Jose Mari Lacson also of San Beda likewise said they’re happy to be in the oldest and one of the most prestigious leagues in the land today.

“We’re happy in the NCAA,” said Lacson, who said the league as a whole not just San Beda was complimented by the UAAP’s planned expansion.

De Jesus said will only open the door to any possibility if San Beda will gain university status from the Commission on Higher Education in the next few months.

“When it becomes a university within one year, San Beda will keep open its option for UAAP,” said de Jesus.

These statements came after UAAP president Anton Montinola of Season 72 host Far Eastern U bared the league’s plan of expanding next year, which came right after the NCAA opened its doors to three guest teams—Arellano U, Angeles U Foundation and Emilio Aguinaldo College.

The 85-year-old NCAA will eventually accept three regular members next year, which may not necessarily be the same three guest teams currently playing in Season 85.

Montinola was quick to point at San Beda as the most likely school to be accepted as the UAAP’s ninth regular member school.

It’s possible, maybe we’ll go nine teams, maybe 10 next year,” said Montinola. “Apparently, the school that comes to mind without alienating the other schools interested would be San Beda.”

Montinola was actually impressed by San Beda’s sports program not just in basketball where it’s one of the best in the country today.

“They’re strong in all sports, they’re alumni is always behind them and supporting them, they have a serious basketball program that would enhance the popularity of the UAAP,” said Montinola.

“With them around, we would have old rivalries that would be rekindled and create new ones like UST-San Beda, FEU-San Beda, La Salle-San Beda, things like that.

“We’ve experienced it, in fact, because we played in the pre-season against San Beda,” he added.

It can be recalled that the UAAP last accepted a new team nearly three decades ago since La Salle jumped ship from the NCAA to the UAAP in the early 80s.

Since then, the UAAP has stuck to eight teams.

But for San Beda or any other school to get into the UAAP, it has to pass strict guidelines and submit the needed requirements like paying the entry fee and showing it has strong fan support.

“But the most important requirement is that the school must be approved by all eight member schools unanimously. If only one school objects, then they have a problem,” said Montinola.

De Jesus said all the decision will have to be decided by the whole San Beda community.

“Ultimately, it will be the entire Bedan Community to decide on this: administration, faculty and staff, students, alumni, parents and other stakeholders,” he said.

SBC targets UAAP
By FRANCIS SANTIAGO
July 8, 2009, 5:44pm

San Beda College, which has made mincemeat of the opposition in the NCAA the past three years, is entertaining the possibility of joining the tougher, more prestigious UAAP in the near future.

San Beda rector Fr. Mat de Jesus, OSB, yesterday said the school has no plans of joining the UAAP at least for this school year, but he admitted that they are open to the idea of jumping to the other side.

“We don’t have plans for the moment, for this academic school year, not yet,” said De Jesus whose school is host of this year’s 85th NCAA season.

He said they are more concerned about being good hosts and plans for the future are on hold.

“But we are open to any possibilities,” the rector said.

De Jesus’s statement came a day after the UAAP announced plans to expand the number of teams which currently stands at eight.

San Beda appears to have the inside track should the UAAP decides to add a new member.

UAAP president Aton Montinola of host Far Eastern University said so during a recent press conference as he praised San Beda’s sports program which he described as “very strong.”

“Apparently, the school that comes to mind without alienating the other schools interested would be San Beda,” Montinola said.

“They’re strong in all sports, their alumni are always behind them, they have a serious basketball program that would enhance the popularity of the UAAP,” he added.

The idea of an expanded UAAP was raised after the NCAA opened its membership this year by inviting three guest teams — Arellano University, Emilio Aguinaldo College and Angeles University Foundation.

“We’re very grateful of his (Montinola) comment on our strong sports program,” De Jesus said.

The only drawback for San Beda, which is a tricky one, is that a UAAP member school must be a university.

But De Jesus said San Beda is on its way to becoming one this year.

Expansion will be interesting. Of course, more than expansion of current leagues, I think more development should be given to a national league/conference, like the PCC.

San Beda's got a pretty good sports program, and will probably make the UAAP games interesting.As interesting and as welcome an addition San Beda might be to the UAAP, I'll wait until two things happen: One, San Beda actually becomes a university eligible to apply for membership, and two, that San Beda actually applies.

Let us take it one step at a time.

It looks like San Beda really is hellbent on joining the UAAP. They must first complete their university status as per CHED and DEPED regulations and processes.

Then they need to expand their entire athletics program since the UAAP has more sporting events than the NCAA. This will cost major money in terms of recruitment of players and coaches, as well as facilities.

IF San Beda does become a UAAP member, JRU might want to follow suit. San Beda would make it nine UAAP member schools, a bad number for scheduling purposes. Adding JRU (already a university) would make it an even 10 member-schools.

maroonmartian

Yup, issue yung color for this teams. SBC parang UE, JRU parang NU colors.

Kung saka-sakali na makakapasok ang SBC sa UAAP in the near future, I don't see any reason why SBC or UE should change its color. Their different monickers are enough to distinguish one from the other. Kapritso na lang kung iinsist ng isa na dapat sya lang ang pwedeng gumamit ng "Red". Kung gusto ninyo palitan na lang ninyo ang monickers ninyo tulad ng sa SBC gawin na lang "Red Indians" tutal yung mga cheers ninyo Indian war cry di ba? ;D

As much as the UAAP might want to go nationwide, logistics will always be a problem. Let us say University of the Visayas or University of San Carlos join the UAAP. Do they come to Metro Manila or do the Metro Manila teams go to Cebu? Either way, that's at least 20 people to transport to and from, house and feed for at least an overnight stay. If we figure in even just P500 per person that is still at least P10,000 for an overnight deal, and we know there are hidden costs that crop up in endeavors like this. And this is just figuring on one team coming over to play on one given game day. What if it is a three to four-day stay? Costs could go way beyond P50,000 just for one team to travel.

Which is why I think it's pretty inefficient to expand existing leagues by adding schools from the provinces. If you want to talk about schools in Metro Manila expanding their Metro Manila-based leagues, that doesn't really serve any purpose other than to add interest to one league and the new member schools. What should be given more time and effort is the further development of the PCC (formerly CCL) into the most prestigious collegiate championship. This should probably be done not just in basketball, but in other sports too.

Remember that UE gave up its Blue and Gold academic colors in the 50's to respect NU and the league's identity (kindly look the UAAP official logo).
...
RE: ADMU and AdU: UAAP colors. I beg to disagree, the ADMU's Blue and White is different to AdU's NavyBlue and White. Its totally different shade of colors.
The monickers are also different, yes both of them are using birdprey as their monicker but a Blue Eagle and a Falcon, I can't find any similarity?
...
If San Beda ever join the UAAP, they must reconsider what UE has done to respect other school and the league's identity.
If in the NCAA, they doesnt have that kind of gesture like what this season had happened to the inclusion of a guest school (EAC - Red and White, also). The UAAP is a different habitat to wage in.
...
Future Scenario: I think there would be chaos, rampant ranting, and worst even riot if UE and San Beda goes under one root, and these two institutions are a street away.
To prevent this the UAAP Board must consider "what if. . .?"

sayang nga di natuloy yung plano ng UP nung host year nila na pagsamahin ang UA tsaka NC. sarap sanang panuorin nun. Another thing, recruitment battles will not be dominated by single schools now, or at least mababawasan ng konti yung domination, kasi hindi na magfafactor yung maglalaro yung recruit sa mas sikat na liga. Media mileage ba. Schools now have the opportunity to keep their homegrown talents.

NCAA and UAAP colors are very important. Team/school monikers, cheers and traditions are also very important and ought to be respected. Any school, therefore, should refrain from copying the colors, monikers, cheers and traditions of the other schools.

I'm not too keen on expanding the UAAP in the next season. But I think it would be the height of idiocy to reject an applicant school based on any perceived similarity between colors of mascots with an existing member. Ditto if the applicant school will be required to somehow change these two or both as a condition to being accepted.

simple because UE have an academic colors (Blue and Gold) and athletic colors (Red and White). NU being one of the founder of the league should be given the respect they deserve. And respect should be given to UE also for being a member of the UAAP for 57 years when a new member wants to join their league.

I think San Beda would be a perfect addition. Very rich tradition in basketball and cheering. Had the chance to experience this tradition of San Beda a couple of times.

I experienced this as a young lad in DLSU's final year in the NCAA. It was a three way battle then between DLSU (Pumaren, Bichara, Uichico, etc.), Letran (Esguerra, Ducut) and San Beda (J. Loyzaga, Brill, Advani). Support for these three teams from their studentry and alumni were fantastic. I happened to be in the ill fated DLSU-SJLC game cut short by that rumble.

During DLSU's years in sports purgatory (1981-86), San Beda for some reason took a leave of absence from the NCAA. So we limited ourselves to Dual Meets. Their HS team with Benjie Paras and Macky de Joya were dunking their way around our dwarfs from Zobel.

Another funny tale we shared in family get togethers. My Grandad and 2 uncles would go watch a San Beda game in the 50's and see their Blue Eagles get beaten by an individual player. They could not jeer or yell at this player since he happened to be their older and bigger cousin Piling Barreto.

The Ateneo's official colors are blue and white.
No specification as to shade, although Marian tradition suggests a shade of blue called ultramarine, the pigment derived from lapis lazuli. But there is no categorization of the shade of blue as "royal" or "navy" insofar as the Ateneo's choice of colors is concerned.

The current widespread use of a shade that we can identify as "royal blue" is something due to our team outfitters.

Unless SBC becomes a university right away, SBC should not be included in any discussion about any UAAP expansion.

JRU, PCU, Lyceum, CEU, Arellano, UAP, UM, Feati, TUP and the other universities are the only schools qualified for admission at this time.

Unless SBC becomes a university right away, SBC should not be included in any discussion about any UAAP expansion.

JRU, PCU, Lyceum, CEU, Arellano, UAP, UM, Feati, TUP and the other universities are the only schools qualified for admission at this time.


Lion, Matagal na yan, but unless the boys club follow the NCAA pattern, then we'll remain as an 8 team league. I envy the NCAA dahil mas progressive sila sa sports nila. Eventually, the amount of competition will breed better players. Unlike the UAAP na stagnant na for 25 years. If we give the teams 1-2 years probationary to strut their stuff and show us from a practical (not theoretical) point of view that they deserve to be in the UAAP then i believe that's the way to go.

I think what's also a hindrance is the requirement of having a juniors team. Not all of these educational institutions have junior teams. I think it would be worthwhile to consider to separate the Juniors and Seniors division into two different entities. In that way, more universities and colleges can play and more HS schools can play at this level.

And for the last 25 years, only 4 schools have won the UAAP men's basketball, La Salle, FEU, UST and Ateneo, in all sorts of dynasty, multi-titled UE Warriors has never won since the Allan Caidic-era, UP remains with a lone title in '86. Adamson and NU its been so long, kailangan talaga nila mag expand, more schools joining to create excitement.
