Stony Brook Cheerleaders
« on: August 13, 2013, 12:12:16 pm »
I wasn't sure where to put this post so i thought starting a new topic was appropriate . What are your thoughts in regards to our Cheerleaders. I really don't know how to say it and I've been known to be blunt, and not sugarcoating things but SB Athletic should invest some more time into finding, lets say, hotter chicks !!! I don't wan't to offend anyone on this board or the SB cheerleaders and I apologize if I just did but I think finding the most attractive and talented SB student to be a cheerleader would only improve ticket sales and increase exposure to the Sports programs !

Lets use the Clemson Tide Cheerleaders for example. Maybe I'm asking too much ???

Again, If I offend just one person then I will remove this post !!

LOL. Its a delicate topic but I'll have to say I agree. Overall, the cheer leading team needs more funding but I guess that can only come if we get more funding for athletics in general.

I think cheerleading in the Northeast is not as highly regarded as in other areas of the country (i.e Southeastern) but it is definitely a nice plus to have for those crowds that are interested in more than just plain-old basketball.

I particularly pay little attention to the cheer leading team when i attend basketball games, but i had other guy friends that would always make comments about the girls

Hammer, there's nothing wrong with wanting attractive cheerleaders. I hope political correctness doesn't infect this board. I'm not certain, but I don't think SB gives scholarships to cheerleaders. Other schools do. For example, Liberty's football cheerleaders were fairly hot AND they performed some pretty good gymnastics moves. The difference between the two squads was noticeable. Yes, I'd PREFER to watch attractive cheerleaders, but I go to the games to watch the guys (no, not in that way)

ry1nik. I agree. I of course go to all the Football and Basketball games to watch our Athletes play. I've even gone to the SB girls Basketball game, again to watch the Athletes play not the Cheerleaders doing their thing. With that said, I still think having really talented and attractive Cheerleaders could only help with the SB Athletic Brand. If SB attracts just 2 percent more Fans because of hotter Cheerleaders, why not !!!

I seriously doubt SB cheerleaders are given scholarships to perform, unlike some of the marching bands performers do, but i'm sure they could find some girls who are quite, well, you get the idea, well in dow$,,,,to join the team..  lol !!!!

Wow, I wasn't aware of that. They hand out scholarships for cheerleading? That's explains it. There is like a world of a difference between the cheer leading teams in the football schools of the south and the schools in the north east. Those girls down south are all hotties and more skilled, our girls are just average.

In most cases they're not full scholarships like the athletes receive. Here's the link.

I don't see SB name offering cheerleader scholarship on that web only st. Johns . I was told SB does offer some scholarship for their Marching Band though. I'm not 100% certain of that .. According to that site, schools that do offer scholarship for cheerleading only give out few hundred bucks per semester .. I don't see a reason why SB can't absorb that $$$ to recruit some really good girls !!!!

could be wrong, but i was always under the impression that the big football schools awarded scholarships to cheerleaders because it helps balance out the 90+ scholarships for football under title IX.  any thoughts?

of course, that doesnt work as well when some of the cheerleaders are male.  which is the case at some schools.
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

No. Cheerleading is not a Sport in the NCAA and is not covered under title IX
