I had such high hopes for Adamson going into Season 80, at sa totoo lang mukha namang may ipapakita pa din ang Falcons, they do have a chance to close out Round 1 with a solid 5-2 record, their only losses coming from leaders Ateneo and Lasalle.

Pero ito na naman tayo, bakit ba tila may kulang sa mga bata ni Coach Franz Pumaren?

I really thought, for instance, that Tyrus Hill would be the missing piece at power forward, and that his presence would elevate Adamson to Finals contender status.

Nakakabilib ang ginawa niyang pag-posterize kay Jeepy Faundo on that very athletic drive nung UST game nila.

Pero kung titignan natin talagang malayo pa yata sa katotohanan si Hill, as in he is not even in the Top 10 MVP contenders, with that honor going of course to their import Papi Sarr.

Ang siste dito may edad na si Hill, at ganun din sina Manalang, Camacho, Manganti, not sure about Lojera. All of these guys are 20 or older, kung hindi pa sila nagpapasiklab ngayon, kelan pa?

Hill, according to his declared age, is actually older for example than Thirdy Ravena, and Thirdy is 21. Ganun din ang iba pang core group ng Falcons.

Coach Franz has a good record getting older players, especially Fil-Ams, and making them a championship team like he did during his 4-Peat with Lasalle. Pero ang kaibahan ay immediate impact players dati sina Allado (assistant coach na niya ngayon sa Adamson), Cortez, Wilson, andun din si Ritualo (another assistant coach niya ngayon).

So the question is: when will all of the potential actually become production?
