Kangaroos Cheerleaders Stay Losing Thanks To Mizzou Protest Backlash

Nice bit of student reporting and roundup of ongoing Conservative wrath that seeks to damage the UM system far more than any social justice protests. Checkit:

UMKC Cheerleading Team Loses Funding

In response to the dramatic cuts in higher education spending being carried out by Gov. Eric Greitens, the university will not be funding a cheerleading team this semester. This will affect some 20 students who received a $1400 a year scholarship for being on the team.

Some 25 years ago the "civic leaders" came up with the idea to make UMKC a division I basketball school. They would play at Municipal Auditorium and be one of the urban college powerhouse teams. After getting them into D I they moved on to the next big thing leaving UMKC with little resources or support. Now they can't even afford cheerleaders. How did that "big thing" work out? About as good as translational research.

Cheerleading is a "sport"? And that's why cheerleaders get so-called scholarships? Even if $1,400 isn't even enough to buy one year's worth of college textbooks? Basically, cheerleaders are nothing but the worst paid professional athletes at the university. The whole college sports system (let's be honest ... the whole industry) needs to be brought crashing down.

MudZoo Roos cheerleaders may wanna try sporting some frizzy orange wigs and nerd specs while walking around campus, shouting:
"Let's get some MONEY over here!"

$1400.00 per year in a scholarship to be a cheerleader? So I guess this cheerleader gig trains you to be what after college, a lap dancer at a local bar? No wonder these college educated libtartlettes are such bitter little people. Your Tax Dollars at Work.

These students learned a hard lesson from the failures of MU administration. Hopefully they never forget it. It's interesting how the article blamed the governor when we clearly know what happened.

Cheerleading is my life. Seriously? UMKC is an urban school that caters to those who can't make it anywhere else. The Cheerios will not be missed.

10:40 Suck my dick...Tonette! This is bullshit. It isn't like folks cheering on their team need to be led. It is also not like the team gains any momentum by a pack of bimbos doing doggie tricks on the sidelines. If you want cheerleaders just add the cost of them to your tuition and you can have all you want. Silly girlette!
