CAGERS BACK FLOOD
Pro basketball to expand
This is the year of the great experiment in Michigan
basketball. This is the year that saw the arrival of girl
cheerleaders on the court for the first time in history..
Being, at heart, a male chauvinist I was ecstatic about the
idea when Fred Snowden first informed me. After all, what could
be better than adding a little sex appeal to the game? Besides,
from my own experience, chick cheerleaders usually get a better
response from the crowd. The result is more yelling and better
Atmosphere was something that Michigan basketball needed
too. Events Building crowd are easily the deadest in the whole,
Big Ten. Sterile is the best word to use when describing typical
crowd reaction in the big barn.
Now I don't know about anyone else, but I think that takes
some of the fun out of the game. Fans are part of the action
and make the whole spectacle even more worthwhile when they
are really' roaring. Also, it must be remembered that a raucous
home crowd can help to lift a team.
So I was all set to see the girls change the complexion
of Michigan basketball. Things didn't start off too well,
though, as the Detroit crowd and cheerleaders clearly out-
yelled their Michigan counterparts in the opening game.
However, being the fair-minded guy that I am I decided
that I would wait to pass final judgment. -
With the season more than half over now, the time for a
decision on the cheerleaders is ripe. The verdict, unfortunately,
is that the girls are duds. I don't mean anything personally,
girls, but I'm sorry, you just don't have it.
There are a few things that have to be fixed before the
girl cheerleaders will be effective. The first thing that is needed
is a change of personnel. I think that our current crop is a
really cute group of girls and, of course, I love them all but,
damn it, they are just not sexy. And that friends is what you
need in a cheerleader. All of you who attended the Duke game
and saw those sweet little Blue Devils will know what I mean.
Even a mute would've tried to yell when they led the cheers.
Now that we have established that a little visiual appeal is
needed we must approach the second problem; cheers them-
selves. At the moment Michigan has only one cheer that is worth
anything, namely Let's Go Blue. If you can find another one I'll
let you have this column for a day. What the Wolverines need
is a bunch of riotous, insulting cheers, the kind that appeal to a
typical fan's savage instincts.
Obviously, at the moment, we have no such cheers. But
I have the solution. The Athletic Department should send
the cheerleaders down to Detroit some afternoon and have
them watch Northwestern, Pershing, Kettering or one of the
other top city schools play. There they can learn what good,.
old hate cheers are all about. There's nothing like a good
chorus of Kill, Kill, Kill to get the fans' blood running.
The cheerleaders could also jot down a few notes on when
to cheer. It seems that someone neglected to inform the girls
that time-outs are the places for truly effective cheerleading.
In the Events Building time-outs have become nap period. Things
got so bad last Saturday that two little old ladies in the stands
had to start singing The Victors in attempt to stir things up.
However, to give credit where it's due, I will admit that the
cheerleaders joined in after the little, old ladies had set the
But joining in after the yelling has started seems to be
our girls' trademark anyway. Once the crowd starts cheering
spontaneously the girls are very good at encouraging them. Un-
less I am misinformed, though, it is the cheerleaders who are
supposed to get the crowd to join them. It could be that Michi-
gan's cheerleaders are actually developing a totally new concept
in the arts of cheerleading.
Personally, I think they can stick the new concept in a
garbage can and get back to trying to make the crowd part
of the game. A cheerleader should be some chick who gets
out there and screams her lungs off, who exhorts the loyal
fans from the moment they enter the building until the
moment the game is over.
What a girl cheerleader shouldn't be (at least at Michigan)
is a duplicate of her male counterpart. If you dig watching cheer-
leaders do backflips I guess you'll disagree with me but as far
as I'm concerned, if we're going to .be subjected to a gymnastics
