    UCONN: Cheerleaders out...Spirit Squad in

    UConn Replaces Cheerleaders With 'Spirit Squad' -- Courant.com

    Probably saved a bunch on their insurance by switching to "Spirit Squad"...

    I wonder what the Oregon cheerleading coach thinks of this? Perhaps I should google it

    my wife keeps looking for him at every KU event.

    Honestly, why do we need a gymnastic/stunt team at football? I like our pom squad, and would like more crowd involved cheering.

    Re: UCONN: Cheerleaders out...Spirit Squad in

    IMO this is a good thing. Cheerleading is the most dangerous activity when it comes to injuries such as paralysis and death. I also have to imagine the insurance on them is very high for this reason.

    Re: UCONN: Cheerleaders out...Spirit Squad in

    My favorite quote in the story: "They are disrespecting cheerleaders in general by doing this," she said. "I know people really enjoy watching us when we do our pyramid and stunts, flipping people into air."

    Actually, I am a bit jealous of that KU dude on the pom squad (actually I think it was their dance team). Think about it. He gets to travel with all those good looking girls -- and he is the only guy so the ratio was like 10-1. He gets his own motel room if they have to stay over. The guy has it made.
