Three upperclassmen have been removed from their Corps of Cadets outfit while officials investigate an incident they say caused blisters and abrasions to a freshman cadet's hands.Vision 1920 notes that the high for Sept 7 was 98 degrees. And what about the fire ants?
The injuries resulted from an exercise known as the "bear crawl" -- which is like crawling, but using feet instead of knees -- that was performed Monday on a concrete surface in the university's central parking garage, officials said.
"It's not the exercise," said John Van Alstyne, Corps commandant. "It's the place they chose to do it that resulted in injury. You can do the same thing on grass and it wouldn't be dangerous."
