I feel like someone made a song about the University of Minnesota Dance Team. You may have heard it before...
D1A Pom Results: 8th Oklahoma 7th Iowa 6th Cincinnati 5th Memphis 4th Colorado 3rd UNLV 2nd Ohio St 1st Minnesota— UDA (@UDAnews) January 20, 2014
D1A Jazz Results Cont: 5th Colorado 4th Arizona State 3rd Ohio State 2nd Tennessee 1st Minnesota— UDA (@UDAnews) January 20, 2014
FIVE STRAIGHT NATIONAL TITLES.
Oh, excuse me, I'm underselling this moment...
FIVE STRAIGHT DUAL NATIONAL TITLES.
Pom and Jazz Champions five years in a row. Simply astounding. The University of Minnesota Dance team is a machine, a dynasty that just keeps on rolling. That sort of happens when you're able to do stuff like this:
Talk about attack!! Fantastic technique and sync from Minnesota! pic.twitter.com/BiC1Q7mnIU— UDA (@UDAnews) January 19, 2014
Yea, they're good.
And the crowd goes wild! Minnesota showcases incredible technique and sync in 1A Jazz! pic.twitter.com/bRLlU3C2zz— UDA (@UDAnews) January 19, 2014
I think this YouTube is the routine they won the Jazz title with, but don't quote me on that.

Heath and I just named a jump after the Minnesota Dance team.— Sammy G (@SamDitz) January 20, 2014
Seriously, we need some more celebration music.
What About Goldy And The Cheer Squads?
- Goldy: Goldy was robbed of another mascot national title by Aubie The Tiger. Personally I think that's just ESPN SEC bias coming though, but a strong 2nd place finish is still pretty good and all.
Also important? The continued dominance of Goldy over Bucky.
- Cheer Squads: Both cheer squads finished the year in the Top 10, with a pair of 7th place finishes.
Hats off to the UMDT, Goldy, and the Cheer Squads
