Okay, maybe they’re not really cyborgs made to look like humans, but the new “spirit squad” created by the University of Connecticut sounds like their one and only job is to do the evil bidding of the administration. Their ONLY job. No stunts, no tumbling, no 30 foot human pyramids. None of that crap. Just get the fans in the stands and make them happy, got it? According to Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Director of Student Activities (that’s some bureaucratic job title, eh?) Christine “The Terminator” Wilson, the change was made because “We want people formerly called cheerleaders to focus in on building spirit at UConn, on spending time working on ways to engage fans and to really spread Husky spirit” rather than spend hours perfecting stunts. Oh, snap!
Sounds to us like someone in the Husky administration asked the boys and girls on the cheer squad to interact more with the fans (you remember, the ones who pay the bills for high priced college sports?) and were probably told that they didn’t have the time because they were working on their routine for the National Cheer Offs (or whatever they’re called). Not a good move gang. Said one teary former Husky cheerleader turned regular student, “They told us so late, I can’t even buy like football season tickets now.” Maybe they’ll let you try out for the Spirit Squad next year?
