University of Oregon Charges $5 to Watch Cheerleading Tryouts
The University of Oregon athletic department is completely underwritten by UO alum and Nike president Phil Knight. It’s not like they’re hurting for money. They still came up with a novel approach to fundraising—allowing the general public to watch Ducks’ cheerleading tryouts for $5 apiece.
This may sound like another crazy money grab by a big-time athletics program but Oregon always features some of the hottest most athletically talented cheerleading squads in the country. So let’s be honest-- it’s not like you haven’t paid a lot more to see a lot less in your life.
