Do you think the UP basketball varsity team has a chance at winning?

@caramiaaa: (awkward pause) LOL

@dancingprincess: Well, ever since bata pa lang ako, lagi nang talo. Mukhang hindi na magbabago, girl.

@kathyrav: Think positive! Of course! I think with the addition of Paras and the other new players, they will have a bigger chance in improving their rank. Friends, optimistic lang. Go Maroons!

@pizzaboy: Habang may buhay, may pag-asa. If not today, then tomorrow. Or the next day. Or the next day. Or the next day. Or the next day.

@irbet24: Naman. Wait, nag-start na yung season? Kailan ba first game? Okay wait, may chance nga ba?

@misswonderland: Hmm.. Hanggang moral support na lang ako, pwede?

How will the UP Basketball Team win?

@kathyrav: I-compute niyo na lang yung projectile ng shoots niyo. Physics please.

@pizzaboy: Guys, quiz bee na lang!

@irbet24: Ipasok na si Benjie Paras!

@augustseptember: Drink Milo, as advertised by Kiefer.

@benjamin_franklin: Cheerdance na lang! Dun lang tayo magaling.

@noelnoelnoelle: Practice, practice, practice. Tiwala lang!

@cheerdancer1: Pagdalhin sila ng calculator kapag may game para di sila nahihirapang mag-calculate ng functions para ma-shoot ang bola!

@chinababyyy: Maging mga taga buhat na lang sa pep squad at para tumangkad din mga pyramids nila!

@handriiiiich: Siguraduhing mainom ni Coach Dandan yung kape niya sa umaga, hindi espresso, hindi capuccino, dapat black. Baka sakali may makuha siyang coaching skills kay Norman Black.

@candycrush: Mag-shift sila lahat sa physics para pag-aralan yung trajectory ng bola para maka-shoot sila.

@UPMBT#1Fan: Keep up the good work. May mga natutuwa sa inyo sa tuwing nagte-training kayo sa gym. Lalo na sa mga sangkababaihan at sangkabekihan.

@carlagon: They should probably shoot the ball and not just hold on to it. Mananalo sila sa pataasan at pahabaan ng fighting spirit. Kaya nga Fighting Maroons!

    UP people are generally smarter, academically better than most students, hence, they cannot be good athletes, generally speaking.
    They value their brain work more than physical prowess.
    Biased? Just look at the academic records of those considered to be good athletes.
