Cornell put their men's lacrosse team on temporary suspension status (cancelled fall ball, can have some practices I guess) over allegations of hazing freshmen with booze. Cornell is hardly the only place this happens, but to get caught means something very bad must have happened. They're already lost a lot to graduation for this year, I'd expect there to be at least one or two key upperclassmen kicked off over this. This could be a gigantic blow to their program and not just for this year.
The Cornell men’s lacrosse team was placed on temporary suspension Thursday following an alleged hazing incident Sept. 13.
"This incident involves coerced alcohol consumption by underage freshmen," said John Carberry, director of press relations for the university.
As of Thursday, the team was allowed to resume its training and practice in accordance with sanction guidelines.
According to a statement made by Andy Noel, the Meakem Smith Director of Athletics and Physical Education, the team has been notified that all of the games scheduled for the fall semester are cancelled pending further notice.
"Hazing practices are harmful and antithetical to our values as a university and our commitment to student-athletes," Noel said. "They have no place in Cornell athletics."
