    ^ Looks like Ka Oca was prophetic, ito na nga 'yung "years of futility to come" na sinabi niya dati.

    This is not just about finding a good coach, kelangan maghanap ng real talent ang Adamson. Dati nakahanap naman ng mga Canada, Alvarez, Nuyles, Colina, Camson, Brondial si Leo Austria. Ganyan ang dapat hanapin muna ng Adamson.

    Unfortunately mahirap din kumausap ng propsect kung wala ka pang coach. In fact it is the coach that should be talking to prospects. Say what you will pero UAAP team pa din ang Adamson. A player looking for a break could do a lot worse than playing even for the crappiest team in the UAAP.

    Adamson wants coach who can focus on Falcons ‘full time’ after Duremdes’ ouster

    Adamson is eyeing a head coach who is fully dedicated to the team to replace Kenneth Duremdes, who was axed on Sunday after a year on the job.

    In a statement, Adamson said that the departure of Duremdes paves the way for its management to search for a new men’s basketball team coach who will dedicate his full attention to the Falcons.

    “They (management) agreed to release Mr. Duremdes from his duties so they could have someone who can dedicate his full time and attention to the development of the team,” the statement read.

    “Mr. Duremdes will no longer serve starting today, June 01, 2015.”

    Lead assistant Mike Fermin will handle the Falcons until a new head coach is appointed.

    An inexperienced Adamson squad, which is in the process of rebuilding, finished at the bottom of the standings with a 1-13 record under Duremdes in the 77th Season of the UAAP.

    Duremdes, a former PBA star, played for the Falcons in the early 1990s. He led the school to two Finals appearances during his college career.

    Duremdes rues lack of second chance to prove worth as Falcons coach

    Kenneth Duremdes, who was relieved of his duties as Adamson’s men’s basketball head coach on Sunday, would’ve wanted another chance to prove himself after a dismal coaching debut in the UAAP.

    The Falcons finished in last place last year with a 1-13 record in their lone season under Duremdes, who was a first-time coach handling an inexperienced team following the departure of its seasoned players.

    “Kasama sa trabaho natin yan eh. As coaches anytime may mangyayari hindi pabor sa atin. It’s sad kasi maganda sana kung na bigyan tayo chance bumawi kaso hindi na eh,” Duremdes told INQUIRER.net in a text message.

    (“It’s part of our job. As coaches anytime anything can happen that won’t favor us. It’s sad because it would’ve been nice to have been given another chance but it didn’t happen.”)

    Philippine Daily Inquirer reported Duremdes’ firing on Sunday before the school made it official the day after in a press release, citing the need fora “full-time” coach.

    ^ Cautionary tale na naman ito na hindi lahat ng magagaling na players nagiging magagaling na coaches. Although uulitin ko lang, siempre mahirap din manalo kung hindi naman talaga kalakasan ang team mo.

    Kenneth Duremdes essentially had Don Trollano and Jansen Rios, two guys who are very good college players but are not quite elite superstar-types, certainly malayo sa kaildad ng mismong coach nila pagdating sa pagiging player. The rest of the team was fodder. Papano ka mananalo?

    Dapat talaga kapag kukuha ka ng college coach, his primary qualification should be his ability to recruit good players. He does not have to get the Metro Manila high school superstars, or the big names from say the NBTC, the Sea Oil, or the Slam Rising Stars. Ang mahalaga may network siya, lalo sa mga lalawigan, at nakakakuha siya ng raw / unknown talent, at napapagaling niya ang mga talent na 'yon.

    Again, ganun ang ginawa ni Leo Austria with his Adamson teams. Kung sino man ang papalit kay Duremedes dapat ability to recruit legit talent ang gawin na unang pamantayan.

    On the part of Adamson, siempre maghanda din sila sa gastos. Ang siste magugutom ka sa Team B ng Adamson kasi wala pang allowance hangga't hindi ka sa UAAP team. Papano, isang taon kang magugutom? Eh 'di hindi ka din nakapagpakita ng magandang laro, kunwari sa mga Fr Martin, or dun sa mga paliga sa Lyceum or sa RTU.

    Ang hindi ko lang maiintindihan bakit hindi pa nila pinatapos ang season na eto. Siguro marahil ginawang basehan ang fil oil. Pero bakit si Luigi Trillo ay napagtiyagaan nila ng ilang taon bakit hindi kaya ibigay kay duremdes yun.

    Adamson coach Mike Fermin says ejection on purpose to drive a point against officiating

    From: Reuben Terrado

    ADAMSON coach Mike Fermin justified his ejection in the team’s game against De La Salle on Sunday in Season 78 of the UAAP, stressing he wanted to make a point about a bad call which he claimed killed the momentum of the rallying Falcons in the stretch run.

    Fermin was thrown out of the game during the six-minute mark of the fourth quarter after Dawn Ochea was slapped with an unsportsmanlike foul.

    Ochea was called for the infraction following a loose ball play in which he hit La Salle’s Thomas Torres, according to the referees.

    The call came as the Falcons are in the midst of a huge comeback, cutting down what was once a huge 28-point deficit to just 54-67.

    The Green Archers eventually won the contest, 88-71.

    While he admitted the Falcons had a poor start to the game, Fermin said he was frustrated about that particular call since he believed Ochea didn’t intentionally hit Torres.

    Fermin was eventually ejected following two consecutive technical fouls called on the Adamson bench and on him.

    “One bad call did us eh,” said Fermin. “Well, siguro nung first half, masama talaga start namin. Pero nandoon ‘yung effort ng mga bata.”

    “Nanghihinayang ako sa mga effort ng mga bata. Sayang eh. Nandoon ‘yung effort ng mga bata tapos gaganunin lang nila kami. Sa amin, be consistent lang sa officiating. Tanggap ko naman ‘yung slow start but we were there.”

    Fermin said Ochea is the kind of person who would not intentionally hurt a fellow player.

    “Loose ball. Human reaction is magugulat ka. It was not intentional na tamaan si Torres. If you are going to look at the background of Ochea, tahimik na tao at walang history ‘yan. Kaya ako nag-react ng ganun.”

    “Kung natamaan niya, unintentional. Hindi intention ng player ko na manakit. It was unintentional na matamaan siya,” added the Adamson coach.

    As he was complaining to the referees, Fermin also made a slit-throat gesture, which meant the referees killed the Falcons’ momentum.

    “My sign was pinapatay niyo ‘yung momentum namin. We were there tapos tumawag ng ganun. Ano ibig sabihin nun? The momentum was there. I looked at the referees and I said ‘You killed us. You killed our momentum.’”

    Fermin said he purposely thrown himself out to drive a point that he will fight for his team.

    “I’m fighting for my team. I apologized to the admin for what happened but that was because we want to win. Sabi ko, ‘Ganoon ko kayo ipaglalaban. Okay lang na ako ang ma-thrown out kasi may mga coaches pa ako. Kung may punishment, walang problema pero we will contest ‘yung nangyari kanina,” he said.
