FIU Cuts Cheerleading Squad

As if FIU football games didn't suck enough as is, the school, in an effort to cut costs just cut the cheerleading team from the university's budget.

The move followed an earlier move that eliminated the marching band as well.

Quote that best sums up the move, from the article from The Miami Herald:

''All FIU now has is a mascot and a dance team,'' [cheerleading coach Maria] George said. "They're cutting the college pageantry out of college sports.''

I wouldn't open my mouth too soon about that, because before you know it, they might nix the mascot and dance team, too.
