The USC Song girls are a longstanding tradition of Trojans football. They are the ambassadors of Troy, appearing in nationwide events throughout the year, as no other pom squad can equal them in national recognition. But oddly enough, in a poll conducted by Scott Wolf, which rates the cheerleaders of the Pac 10, the Southern Cal rah-rahs failed to claim the top spot. Keep in mind that Scott Wolf blogs for the Los Angeles Daily News, and the primary focus is USC sports, yet the overwhelming poll favorites were the girls cheering for the Oregon Ducks.
Oregon currently holds 54 percent of the vote, with 536 readers selecting the Ducks. USC has 21 percent (166), barely edging UCLA (134) for the second position. With 2 votes, the Stanford Dollies sit at the bottom, along with the squads from Cal and Washington State.
The most popular cheer squad in America is not only being routed in the conference category, but also on their own blog. Are the Oregon Ducks so spectacular that even USC loyalists would bypass their own girls and check the box for Oregon? Even worse, on a Trojans blog, the Song Girls shouldn’t be in a fight to hold off rival UCLA. You can support your Song Girls by casting your vote here.
