Some fans deemed these outfits "inappropriate," according to Idaho U. dean of students Bruce Pitman. What do you think? (NWCN.com)
Sports Pros(e) turns its attention to Moscow, Idaho for the first time ever this morning, where the University of Idaho cheerleading squad is being ordered by the university to wear more clothing. It seems their new outfits were deemed too skimpy by some fans. But, as Bruce Pitman, dean of students, was quick to point out to the Associated Press, "To be fair, there were a number of fans who liked them." Of course there were.
With a story like this brewing, the blogosphere is sure to be bubbling. RightFielders had this to say:
"The new Idaho cheerleader uniforms have been fitted, ordered and will be worn in October for the first time. They are 6? longer than the cute versions, remove the team logo from cheerleader ass, and generally look like something your ancestors wore on the Mayflower. They are in black and silver, so picture something resembling a linebacker on the Oakland Raiders."
Before the double-standard police come knocking, this news comes a couple weeks after the Vandals' football team was forced to have the school logo removed from the bum of their pants, as Deadspin discussed Sept. 6.
This is interesting, considering the football stands are one of the last places you'll find fans showing displays of decency and decorum.
What do you think? Should your school's cheerlearders be forced to wear more clothing? Is it fair for the school to be forcing these cheerleaders to get new uniforms?
