As first reported by Houston TV network KPRC (and brought to Prep Rally's attention by the folks at Larry Brown Sports), the Cypress Woods (Texas) High cheerleading coach is no longer in charge of the program after a recording emerged on which she called her team "highfalutin heifers."The "heifers" line was part of a much longer screed the coach made against her team, with the cheerleader who recorded the rant claiming it was just one of a number of aggressive rants the coach had launched against the team. Her name has not been released because she is not facing any criminal charges in the rant, even if it might be concerning that she would deem it appropriate to compare impressionable young women to female cattle.
"Who do you think you all are?" the coach said in the recording. "Highfalutin heifers. You can just come and go as you please. Fire me!"
Name-calling isn't the best approach to take when dealing with students, but I have a hard time getting upset over "highfalutin heifers". I've heard much worse!
And, "I'm sorry, dumplings, but your behavior just isn't meeting standards" is too silly to contemplate. Some middling ground?
