Harvard soccer team controversy

Harvard students are upset and concerned about a "scouting report" made by the 2012 men's soccer team ranking the female soccer team based on their sexual appeal.

(NECN) -- According to Harvard University's school newspaper the 2012 men's soccer team circulated a nine page document as a "scouting report" that gave freshmen women numerical scores and included photos pulled from social media sites. The women on the list were also given sexual positions based on their personalities and nicknames. 

Harvard has sent out a statement saying, "Harvard University Athletics has zero tolerance for behavior of this kind and is deeply upset by these offensive and derogatory remarks."

Some students are upset and hurt by the comments while other students say that the list is not that surprising and should highlight the need for change on campus.
