Sorry Quinnipiac Ladies, But Cheerleading Isn’t a Sport, FOR REAL
Back in the day Jeff, Jeremy and Lindsay would get into heated arguments about whether cheerleading was actually a sport or not. Well U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill made the clear cut decision that cheerleading “still too underdeveloped and disorganized to be treated as offering genuine varsity athletic participation opportunities for students.” So under Title IX, cheerleading cannot be sanctioned as a real sport and cannot be used to keep in compliance with the rules. All this controversy started when Quinnipiac University announced in March 2009 that it would eliminate their volleyball team for budgetary reasons and replace it with a competitive cheer squad. The Cheer Squad would be used as another women’s sports team to keep under compliance with Title IX. Well the volleyball team was not too happy about that and filed a law suit. And guess what? They obviously won and cheerleading has been denounced as a sport. But what a horrible plan to cut the volleyball squad for cheerleading. Besides, volleyball chicks are way hotter, running around in spandex all in shape and such. Score 1 for Jeff and Jeremy. Sorry Lindsay, maybe someday they’ll reconsider the whole thing. But Keep fighting!
