Push-ups, Other Disciplinary Actions by Ohio State Marching Band Banned by Administrators

Well, political correctness and sensitivity running amok:

Ohio State University (OSU) recently banned senior members of its prestigious marching band from assigning rookie members with traditional first-year duties, according to a report from Rolling Stone.

According to the report, anything resembling corporal discipline, such as carrying water jugs to and from the practice field, is now banned, and mistakes usually deemed reprehensible can longer be punished with a quick lap or a single pushup. In fact, squad leaders, who traditionally discipline their respective rows, no longer have disciplinary authority over lower ranking members. Some squad leaders worry the new rules will prevent them from properly conditioning their rows for the physical demands of a big event.
