Hazing claims another team's season

The NY Post today has the story of a stupid hazing incident at Manhattan College:

A slew of smutty Internet photos showing coeds drinking and partying at a hazing ritual that featured a male stripper has prompted Catholic administrators at Manhattan College to cancel the women's lacrosse fall season, The Post has learned.
One photo shows a half-naked man in a straw hat prancing in front of three young women, their faces, arms and matching tank tops stained with marker.

Another shows a young woman being hoisted upside down and sucking on the spigot of what appears to be a beer keg.

None of the women in the photos appears to be uncomfortable with her circumstances

It's that last sentence that's the grabber, isn't it? To see some of the photos, go here.

There's more of the Post story here.

The original expose on the site "NCAA Hazing" caught my eye because it categorized it akin to the Duke Rape case. I told that fellow I thought he was exaggerating and also messaged Brother Scanlan. In the next week, I reported the news story to my fellow alums in my weekly ezine. I'm not surprised at Brother President's reaction. He is a stickler for the rules. It was disappointing that these young women partied to excess. Some would lament that the pictures caught them. I am just sad that they sullied the reputation of my alma mater. Jaspers don't do hurtful things knowingly. We hold ourselves to a higher standard. Not that we're better than others; but that we expect more of ourselves. We are all sinners, but we obey the rules. It's a sad episode. But that which doesn't kill us makes us stronger. So here we have a juvenile situation, that gets out of hand, by people who should have known better. I think that we can all learn that actions have consequences. And never do anything that you would NOT be proud to show your Mom. imho, a '68 Jasper.

Also known as a key stand. Very popular on the campus of the school I went to.

Never required though (even for rugby). I just could never see the point, but was always amused by the drunk people who thought they could do so.
