Life wasn’t easy for one Arizona cheerleader Wednesday night.

A few Wildcats players were a little too eager to get out onto the field before their Fiesta Bowl matchup against Boise State, which was bad news for the cheerleaders and for correct spelling.

The last of the male cheerleaders — who was carrying the “S” — got his flag trampled by the players right behind him and tried to salvage the situation for about 0.2 seconds before promptly giving up.

The struggle is real.

Things didn’t get any better for the guys on the field, either, as No. 20 Boise State upset No. 10 Arizona 38-30.
