Upon hearing that Idaho has deemed its cheerleading uniforms too revealing one might ask "but isn't that what they're FOR?" And the answer, of course, is yes, that is what they're for. Nevertheless, the Idaho spirit squad will be replacing their $4,200 uniforms (I hope that's not each) on account of some complaints that they showed off a little too much skin.
Now, in the spirit of being fully informed, I did take a look at some pictures of the Idaho cheerleaders in uniform (there are a few at the above link) and I'm not sure I see what the big deal is. The skirt is a little short, yes, but if you're going to be flipping around all the time, isn't the length of the skirt somewhat irrelevant?
What, exactly, is gained by getting all puritanical on the length of the skirts?
Quoth the Idaho dean of students: "A number of fans were concerned that the uniforms were inappropriate. To be fair, there were a number of fans who liked them." I'd love to see what those two numbers were. My guess is the latter was significantly larger than the former.
