On this week's FlapperCast - OSU Institutions On The Ropes:
- Two Oregon State institutions are on the ropes, with a proposal to alter
or eliminate the Beaver cheerleading squad and the annual "Shasta"
retreat being replaced by an alternative event in Corvallis.
The cheerleading proposal has been bungled by the OSU athletic department, creating a minor controversy, and I'm fearful that many donors and alums have lost confidence in the department. Student leaders who have put for the "Shasta Alternative" are to be commended, but it is still a sad day to see this potentially fun and traditional event be eliminated largely because of a binge drinking epidemic and/or our inability to make good decisions.
We talk about both in today's podcast. I know I promised to talk Spring football, but there has been ample coverage of the first week throughout the media and internet.
