In a story we've been avoiding because it involves penises (and not even Olympian penises!), the two wrestlers from Nebaska who posed for a gay porn site have been booted from the team. Just more time to star in McG movies.
Paul Donahoe and Kenny Jordan were let go Tuesday, three days after a blog posted images of them taken from Fratmentv.com, a Web site featuring naked or partially clothed male athletes.
"The history of behavior of these men, including the current matter, does not reflect the standard of excellence we aspire to on and off the mat," coach Mark Manning said in a statement. "We have outstanding student-athletes in our program and we will move forward in a positive manner toward our goals.
"I want to personally apologize for any embarrassment that may have been caused for our athletic department, the university and our fans."
Manning didn't address the nature of the wrestlers' past transgressions, and didn't immediately return a message left on his cell phone seeking comment.
Jordan and Donahoe have had a series of run-ins with the law in Lincoln. Jordan has paid fines for possessing or consuming alcohol as a minor, trespassing and assault, and Donahoe for maintaining a disorderly house and having an open alcohol container.
Those minor transgressions, of course, were all hunky-dory until the two guys decided to get paid to show their man bits online. Who'd've thought Nebaska wouldn't be a hotbed of progressive thought? Oh, right. Everybody.
