Texas State University Suspends Members of Marching Band Over Hazing

Hey Cornell! This is how you deal with hazing. Of course, the administration at Texas State University could have followed the lead of the Big Red and suspended members of the marching band drum line accused of hazing NEXT SPRING when there aren’t any football games.

We’re Looking for #CornellLacrosse or #Cornell Jocks to Talk About Hazing Experiences

We’re hearing indirectly that the Cornell administration is trying to justify their weak punishment of the men’s lacrosse team (canceling a couple of off-season scrimmages) in the wake of their “drink ’til you puke” hazing incident as a result of it being a “one time, never happened before and won’t happen again” occurrence. Not surprisingly, we don’t believe that. There are plenty of examples of hazing happening within Greek organizations…

Cornell Suspends Men’s Lacrosse Team Over Hazing Incident: “Coerced Consumption of Alcohol”

On one hand, this looks like a strong stand by the university against a top ranked team in its sport. Yes, Cornell has suspended the team and their fall schedule, but remember, lacrosse is a SPRING sport.  No actual games that count will be missed here, just a few exhibition contest. Practice will continue and the program will probably suffer no ill effects from this action. So has anyone really…
