If you were looking for a way to shake off the winter blues, tuning in to Saturday’s Arizona-UCLA game — namely the Bruins cheerleaders that were featured front and center throughout ESPN’s “College GameDay” and game telecast — would have been the perfect way to warm up.
The UCLA Spirit Squad got a lot of camera time, and deservedly so. Kudos to the ESPN producer for expertly positioning them right behind Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Jalen Rose and Digger Phelps as the quartet previewed the game (which probably fell on deaf ears as male viewers just stared at the background).
As to be expected, the Twittersphere sat up and took notice throughout.
Pre requisite for UCLA cheerleader you have to be a #smokeshow

The #UCLA cheerleader over Rece Davis’ right shoulder should probably be my wife.

Brent Musburger wants Jay Bilas to introduce him to the blonde UCLA cheerleader who is “featured” behind him in Jay’s SportsCenter cut in.
