(U of) Idaho Vandals cheerleaders to replace skimpy outfits (Guilty or Not Guilty?)
The Idaho Statesman--The MSNBC of Idaho ^ | 23 Sept 2008 | Jessie L. Bonner

Posted on 09/24/2008 1:00:19 PM PDT by GOP_Raider

Less than a month into the football season, the Idaho Vandals are undergoing another makeover after spectators complained that cheerleaders’ uniforms were flashing a little more than school spirit.

After the football team dumped the school logo from the buttocks of their new pants, the university in Moscow got complaints that new two-piece cheerleader uniforms were too skimpy.

“A number of fans were concerned that the uniforms were inappropriate,” said Bruce Pitman, dean of students. “To be fair, there were a number of fans who liked them.”

The outfits that drew controversy, halter tops and short black skirts with white trim, were similar to what an NFL cheerleader might wear, Pitman said.

“I’m not quite sure what will happen to them,” he said.

Of all the ways to increase attendance, this is clearly the one I approve of first and foremost.

I think they need to stop making young girls look like sluts. I wouldn’t want my daughter to have to dress like a cheap whore just to cheer for her school’s team.

Katie Couric was a cheerleader here at UVa.

Cheerleaders train hard at the college level - very low bodyfat, which also means . . . very low bodyfat.

If they were professional cheerleaders, they might consider surgery.

Well, it all depends on the university we're talking about I suppose. I'm not sure that, say, Wellsley College for example would be able to give us the same reaction...you know, considering that the junior Senator from New York went there.

I bet she became guiltier AFTER college.

Anyway, even now, she’s not bad looking, just screwed up in the head.

I rest my case. Except that I should have limited my assessment to *female* college cheerleaders!

No, inbred. Just like the people in Alaska (according to NBC-SNL). Anything that isn’t California, New England, or Illinois.

No such thing as too skimpy cheerleader outfits. I know I'm feeling the team spirit right about now.

Tina Louise was another reason to watch. The Show was funny I meant it had more people visiting it - an uncharted island - then Hawaii. :) For a 3 hour cruise, the passengers brought a few things, including the Howells with more luggage then I take on a 7 day vacation. :)

As someone who follows college football the cheerleader uniforms at many major programs have gotten skimpier. The bare midriff look is quite common when a few years ago you never saw that.

Ok, I'm lost. What we have here are a bunch of brainless sluts gyrating in front of drunken college students who are watching a football team comprised of sub-human mammoths unable to spell their name or use an adverb.

Originally chosen to lead school cheers they now choreograph Vegas dance routines, which if they could get away with it, would be topless and include stripper poles! Hey, don't get me wrong, I love looking at the female form. But the point of these cheerleaders is what again?????????????????????????
