Terrence Jones apologizes for running cheerleader over, offers her flowers (Video)

Along every path to the Final Four there are bound to be a few casualties. On Saturday night, a Louisville cheerleader suffered more than just the heartbreak of her team failing to advance to the championship game. During Kentucky’s 69-61 win over the Cardinals, Jerica Logue was run over by Terrence Jones, who was attempting to chase down a wild pass from Anthony Davis. It was about as brutal a collision as you can have between a player and cheerleader, and it left Logue bloodied and shaken. She needed stitches on the top of her head.

At the time, Jones didn’t know he had injured Logue. After the game, he was all apologies.

“Tell her I’m sorry,” Jones said according to The Dagger. “I’ll drive down there and tell her myself with some flowers or something.”

Logue returned after being stitched up and finished cheering. Louisville could have used her toughness on the court.

Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones accused of having sex with student

Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones is already involved in litigation with a website over damaging claims made about her, and now she faces accusations of having sexual relations with a student.

Jones has been a Ben-Gal the past five seasons and resigned as a teacher at Dixie Heights High School (Ky.) last November. She’s been indicted on felony charges of first-degree sexual abuse and unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited acts, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Jones’ mother, who is a middle school principal, was indicted on charges of tampering with physical evidence in her daughter’s case. The lawyer for the Joneses says his clients maintain their innocence and will plead not guilty.

“Sarah denies it completely and apparently the quote, un quote ‘victim’ denies it and is not cooperating … and his parents are upset Sarah is having to go through this which is not usually the case in these situations,” Eric Deters, Jones’ attorney at the time, said in December.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan told the Associated Press the club is aware of the case and had no comment. Each charge she faces is punishable by up to five years in prison.

Jones is also involved in a highly publicized case with a website that claimed she had slept with several Bengals and had two STDs. A federal judge in Kentucky awarded Jones an $11 million default judgment for defamation, but litigation continues in the case.

UPDATE: Jones pleaded guilty to having sex with the student, but she avoided jail time. Read more here.

Bengals cheerleaders apparently are divided by real vs. fake boobs

Laura Vikmanis (pictured at right) is the oldest NFL cheerleader at 43 and has written a book about her life. The Cincinnati Enquirer posted a few interesting tidbits Vikmanis shared about being a Bengals cheerleader, and the part about the schism on the squad is by far the best.

According to Vikmanis, “The most prominent division on the Ben-Gals is not between the young girls and the older girls but between the Real Boobs and the Fake Boobs. This is despite the fact that at any given time, a third of the Real Boobs are considering implants.”

And the Vikings thought they had a schism between Brett Favre and Tarvaris Jackson backers? Give me a break. But there’s more — Vikmanis spills the beans about the practice weigh-ins and fat camp.

“Ben-Gals who don’t make weight have to stay after practice for ‘fat camp’ – an extra half-hour of high-intensity conditioning.

“Your personal goal weight is set over the first month of practice. Once it’s set, you must weigh in at every practice. If you are more than 3 pounds above your goal weight, you’ll be benched for the next game.”

I know what you’re thinking: They fly in Sam Rothstein to conduct the weigh-ins. Brown rice and vegetables, girls. Oh, and we totally know Vikmanis is part of the latter clique.
