U of KY Fires Cheerleading Coach for Being Awesome

Recommended Posts

Hazing and public nudity. 
 

This sounds like the premise of a porn site.

 

The University of Kentucky fired head cheerleading coach Jomo Thompson and three assistant coaches after a three-month investigation uncovered a lack of oversight regarding inappropriate and lewd behavior by members of the squad in off-campus events.

The investigation found cheerleaders participated in hazing activities, alcohol use and public nudity during Thompson's tenure. Assistants Ben Head, Spencer Clan and Kelsey LaCroix were also fired, and program adviser T. Lynn Williamson retired after learning of the investigation.

Kentucky President Eli Capilouto issued a statement:

"A commitment we make and renew every day at the University of Kentucky is that the success of our students is at the center of everything that we do. But for that sentiment to be more than words, we must always act in ways that honor that commitment—especially when we discover rare instances where those who supervise and guide our students don’t meet the standards of integrity we expect of each other. This is one of those times.

"The University of Kentucky has built the nation's premier collegiate cheerleading program. But regrettably, the integrity of the program has been compromised by inappropriate behavior by some squad members on off-campus trips and by lax oversight by the program's coaches and advisor."

According to the investigation, cheerleaders performed basket tosses while either topless or bottomless at the direction of other squad members during a team retreat at Lake Cumberland. Coaches were aware of the situation but did not step in.

Coaches also allowed cheerleading alumni to bring alcohol to the retreat, which was consumed by some squad members who were riding on boats and/or partially naked. According to the release, "several squad members became so intoxicated they needed medical treatment." It is not stated whether anyone drinking was underage.

At a cheerleading camp in Tennessee, squad members instructed their teammates to "perform lewd chants and wear outfits that did not include underwear."

"The annual retreat will be eliminated, and all off-campus trips will be closely supervised," executive associate athletics director Sandy Bell said. "Cheerleading squad members will be held to the same standards as all our student-athletes. It's a new day for UK cheerleading."

The investigation did not find any evidence of sexual assault or misconduct.

Thompson had been Kentucky's cheerleading coach since 2002. Kentucky has won 24 national championships in the last 35 years and is considered the premier cheerleading program in the country.

A bottomless basket toss (I had to look it up) sounds like it could get a little...slippery.

The women had to be topless while the men were bottomless. So there was no danger at all.

Hate to admit it but there's some inbreeding going on based from that pic, shocking I know being as it's Kentucky.

A guy I knew in HS became a D-1 male cheerleader. Said for all the shit he took for being a male cheerleader it was worth it because of the road games. 

The home team cheerleaders would take the opposing teams cheerleaders out the night before the game. He said in most cases it was 3-4 male cheerleaders to about 15-20 female cheerleaders/dance team members from the home team. And there were always multiple options at the end of the night on every road game.

Only recent photo I could find since google/bing have been paid off.

I may be wrong but from my recent studies of UK  cheerleader strange I believe the white “UK” is varsity while the blue “UK” is the b-squad.

Anyone please correct me if I’m off.

America: endless violence, and death, and human trafficking, and rape, and killing on all forms of media, but you can't say "fuck" or show your titty in public. Ass backwards.

Just curious. What if these ill-behaving collegiate cheerleaders were put behind bars? 

Wouldn't they be desperate?

Wouldn't they do anything to get out?

What if you, a Surly poster, were a prison guard?

Just curious.

I like the brunette to the left of the blonde best, but to each his own.  Also, I think she and the blonde are sisters. They look just alike other than the peroxide.

The "consenting" is tricky.  Think about it. She’s out in the middle of nowhere with some dude she barely knows. She looks around her, what does she see? Nothing but Lake Cumberland. “Oh, there’s nowhere for me to run, what am I gonna do, say no?”   If the girl said no, then the answer obviously is no. The thing is that she’s not gonna say no, she’d never say no…because of the implication.  The implication that things might go wrong for her if she refuses. Now, not that things are gonna go wrong for her, but she’s thinking that they will.

I don't know, I could do without the gayness of it, and still bang hot chicks after a night at 606 or Abels.

Went to Lexington a few years ago on a bourbon tour.  Drove around the campus.  Not impressed with the talent there.  At one point, the wife said "Damn, I thought they were SEC?"

You know, as an aside....when all of this COVID shit is over, perhaps I need to host a late 70s-80s Cinemax-y classics film fest at mi casa.  Shankworthy snacks will be provided.

Well, imagine those 2 girls being with you, paying for your drinks and being your wing men helping you hook up with super hot strange after having a 3-way with them an hour earlier.

I’m sure others experiences varied but seriously, if I had it to do over again I would be a male cheerleader.
