I mean, one-piece, spandex uniform? Male-on-male groping? Clear showing of balls and unit? It’s all pretty gross to me. Not to mention the sweat, weight cutting and strong possibility of crushing your nuts on every move.
Well, now I’m justified. Word out of Lincoln is two members of the Nebraska wrestling team were dismissed from the program because they posed naked, or partially naked, for photos posted on a pay Web site, which is an NCAA violation.
Think that’s bad? Well, try this on for size:
In recent weeks, the NU athletic department learned that Donahoe and Jordan, both of whom qualified for the 2008 NCAA Championships, had posed for pictures that were posted on a Web site that features gay pornographic images. The pictures allegedly showed each of the wrestlers naked or partially clothed.
Yeah, you read that all correctly. This has to be one of the most interesting reasons for being kicked off an athletics team I’ve ever heard. How do you even explain something like this to your parents? “Uh, yeah, Mom, Dad? You’re going to have to pay for school now because uhhh, I blew my scholarship and, maybe, possibly, another guy…”
Wrestlers dabbling in Internet gay porn sites. Doesn’t exactly make me want to send my kids to Nebraska.
