Two weeks after Virginia Tech’s Commission on Student Affairs backed off in its confrontation with the Collegiate Times over the student-run newspaper’s anonymous letters policy, the school's least reliable Commission on More Anonymous Stuff has targeted the Hokie cheerleading squad for its policy allowing members to shout anonymous cheers.
Instead of the usual whoops of “Go Hokies,” the squad members have been urging Cassell Coliseum's faithful to their feet with cheers received as text messages from their friends. Cheers such as “Kick Tar Heel ass!” and “Wahoos suck!” Basically, your traditional students-watching-the-game-from-a-sofa-or-bar cheers.
The Hokie cheerleaders have admitted not announcing the cheer writers’ names to the crowd because shouting “Wahoos suck! Sent by Jeremy Fletcher! Mechanical Engineering!” just sounds stupid.
