TuscaloosaNews.com published Cheerleaders at Odds with UA Over Rings.
By all accounts, the university’s stance on competition cheerleading is rather hazy. After the UA squad won the national championship, the university did not send out any news releases to announce it. University officials offered little help when Tuscaloosa News reporters tried to reach team members after their win on Jan. 16.
On the other hand, the school hasn’t expressly forbidden the squad from competing and posted an announcement two days after the competition on RollTide.com, the university’s athletics website, about the squad’s national championship.
