Hazing, the Internet, and college sports

Probably the major issue involving college athletes in the news right now is hazing, and specifically the pictures that have emerged of team-bonding nights at Northwestern University, the Catholic University of America. Now, someone identified as a former University at Albany compliance officer has posted a blog about hazing, calling on the NCAA to pass emergency legislation to ban the practice. Many athletes, of course, see nothing wrong with a team party that involves a few people being silly–even if they’re the freshmen being tied up, drawn upon, and forced to do skits, shots, or other things. This was a major issue at the Knight Commission’s Summit on the Collegiate Athlete Experience.
