New UAAP rule on school hymns draws major flak online
ABS-CBN Sports on Aug 30, 2016 06:14 PM
No more school hymns after each game for UAAP Season 79.
Well, change came.
One of the couple new rules for the upcoming UAAP Season 79 is that school hymns will now be sung before the games and not after.
The reasoning behind it, according to UST atheletic director and UAAP president Fr. Ermito de Sagon, O.P., is to give the school hymns the proper respect they deserve.
More often than not, winning teams are too busy celebrating or doing interviews intead of singing their school hymn.
The losers meanwhile can't wait to get out of the basketball floor.
Sometimes, during the finals, the losing school don't even get the proper time to sing their hymn.
With this change in tradition, safe to say more than a couple UAAP fans did not appreciate the gesture.
