Rick Bozich has entered the chat.
The longtime Louisville sports columnist offered his thoughts on Kentucky’s new cheerleading scandal and, oh boy, did he bring a scorching hot take out of left field. Bozich saw a debate between the gap wedge or the sand wedge, a little wind at our back, and he pulled out his driver and hit the ball onto another hole. No, he hit someone’s Lincoln in the parking lot.
Bozich has everyone on both sides of the UK cheer conversation wondering where the hell he came from with his, “Cheerleaders and dance teams are sideshows, not the main event. They’re along for the ride, not supplying the horsepower. They’re a prop, not essential.”
He’s also writing about some very serious allegations on a very serious Louisville news website and he says, “I didn’t know their names before Monday morning, and I’ll forget their names by Tuesday morning.”
I’m also interested in asking why UK needed not one, not two, not three but four cheerleading coaches.
I’ll take a guess: Cheerleaders and dance teams have become over-publicized props in the big-time sports college entertainment complex.
They believe fans show up to watch them, not quarterbacks, point guards, halfbacks or power forwards.
They’re overexposed — and underdressed.
They exist to entertain — and to titillate. [WDRB]
Bozich pulled a seat up to the table and brought with him an unbelievably bad opinion of it all, so bad that you could put it on the Onion and it could pass as satire. I read it an hour ago and I’m still in disbelief.
Give this a read but don’t step on Bozich’s grass.
