UMD Tells Women’s Soccer Team to “Do Her”

Picture 68

The University of Maryland women's soccer team has earned an interesting new sideline chant: "Do Her." The saying, promoted by Sophomore bio-engineering student Chris Dupuis (the guy in the face-paint), is also the name of the team's fan base. They made T-shirts.

"Do Her," Dupuis explains, is "a word that means that when they're going down the field, and you want them to do a move so they can get by the opponent, or make the opponent look silly or embarrassed, you just yell, 'Do Her!' and they'll go right by." Thankfully, Dupuis anticipated alternate interpretations of the term:

The back of the T-shirts reads, "'Do Her' is not a sexual reference, but rather a skilled move that enables progress down the filed of play." This guy is awesome.

    If you have to put an explanation that the slogan on the front of your shirt or that you're chanting is not a sexual reference, it's probably a sexual reference.

    Since I very much doubt that male fans of men's soccer teams are wearing these t-shirts with "Do Her" changed to "Do Him" I don't believe that this fan effort is not sexual.

    I think it's clever, witty and a good, grassroots kind of way to drum up support for the team. Very tongue-in-cheek and catchy.

    Good job, Chris.

    @tomhandy...even Mcdonald's has to have a disclosure for their coffee!

  • Man Up

    These guys have gotten a bigger fan base for the women's team than they have ever had here at the University, so don't knock it. Whatever they can do to raise support for female athletics is awesome, and they shouldnt be judged just because the word 'do' has gained negative connotations in the current, immature, american culture.
