2 Nebraska wrestlers dismissed for porn

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LINCOLN, Neb. - A wrestler from Michigan and a University of Nebraska teammate have been dismissed from the team after posing naked for videos and photographs on an Internet pornography site.

Paul Donahoe of Davison, Mich., and Kenny Jordan, from Frankfort, Ill., were let go yesterday, three days after a blog posted imags of them taken from Fratmentv.com, a Web site featuring naked or partially clothed male athletes.

Donahoe, an incoming senior, won the Big 12 championship at 125 pounds in 2008 and placed third in the NCAA tournament after winning the title the year before.

"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."

Donahoe and Jordan have had a series of run-ins with the law in Lincoln. Donahoe has paid fines for maintaining a disorderly house and having an open alcohol container, and Jordan has paid fines for possessing or consuming alcohol as a minor, trespassing and assault.

The athletic department became aware of the images on the Internet late last week.
