I am unsure of all the details of this part, but from what we understand he panicked and told the officer that "A veteran made him drink" thinking it would get him out of trouble. The veteran in question is a member of the "C" team (A is like varsity, B is like JV etc. in terms of skill/league participation). He was not a team leader or anything.
Those 5 words got passed on to the school judicial review committee and their interpretation was:
"The team leader made it appear like drinking was a right of passage all new players must go through to be accepted on the team.
Bottom line is we got nailed for hazing. For the first time in almost a decade we had brought Virginia Tech rugby back from repeat winless seasons to national contenders. Last year we made it to midatlantic regionals and this year we are 10x better.
