Clemson-UVA: At The Half

By Jeff Lippman - March 01, 2007

One interesting thing to note as the teams head into the locker room for halftime:

Virginia's cheerleaders aren't very active. The Clemson bunch is almost always standing and cheering while UVA just sort of sits there for the most part.

When I investigated the matter I was told that it was because the Virginia cheerleaders are the "pretty" girls, AKA they are too classy to be doing too many stunts.

Maybe they are just playing like the team they are cheering for, largely uninterested. At the half, the score is Clemson 49, Virginia 44, but UVA closed the half on a run to pull to that number.

Soliciting far more excitment from the crowd than any point in the game is Team Acrodunk, high flying aerial dunkalists (that's dunk specialists) gliding through the air with the help of trampolines. And they've only dropped the ball a couple times.

Good stuff.

Oops, there's another one. My favorite dunker? Easily the 5-foot-4 stocky white guy who just tried a backflip without the trampoline's assitance and fell on his posterior.

They had a dunk off, the red team vs. the white team. The red squad--the squad our friend with the sore buttocks is on--took home the prize.
