The college announced last week that the team's fall games were cancelled after an investigation determined upperclassmen had hazed freshmen players.
According to a report posted on Cornell's hazing website, freshmen were expected to perform menial tasks and other duties for upperclassmen. The report says the team held a party featuring a "key race," during which freshmen were challenged to drink large amounts of beer in a competition against other team members.
College officials say the freshmen were made to stand in a circle and drink beer to the point where "multiple members vomited."
Cornell went 14-4 last spring and lost to eventual national champion Duke in the NCAA semifinals.
