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

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    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.
