STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State says it will discipline a cheerleader who extended a foot as an Oklahoma player celebrated the game-ending touchdown in last week’s Bedlam matchup.
Deputy athletic director Dave Martin says the university does not condone physical or verbal abuse toward players or fans. In a statement to The Oklahoman, Martin said the cheerleader will see “consequences for his poor judgment and actions.”
The male cheerleader is shown on video extending his foot while Oklahoma’s Eric Striker celebrated his touchdown that ended the rivalry game. Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State 33-24.
He didn’t make contact, and Martin said the cheerleader explained he was just extending his foot in a mocking manner.
Kind of wish this bro actually connected and tripped Striker and made him sprain his ankle or something. No not because I wish Striker any ill will, but because it would have been kind of cool to see a male cheerleader get beaten unconscious by a football team on live TV? I mean the refs couldn’t jump in or anything right? Security would hang back and just let it go down? Kind of have to when a dude who dances and throws pom poms in the air for the day interferes with real men playing sports like an asshole. Such a scumbag move. Hey Craig Buchanan don’t you have a dance routine to perform in the corner for a bunch of people who want you to shut the fuck up and get out of their face so they can watch the game?
