Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne says the two
wrestlers dismissed last week after appearing on a
pornographic website had run afoul of NCAA rules on a
Friday the athletic department had declared Paul Donahoe and
Kenny Jordan ineligible once before for violating the
extra-benefits rule, which prohibits student athletes
from receiving gifts, discounts, and other benefits
not available to all students.
Osborne says the
athletic department had to appeal to the NCAA to have
the pair reinstated. Each was suspended for one match.
By appearing on
the gay porn site Fratmentv.com, the pair violated an
NCAA rule that prohibits student-athletes from using their
images for commercial purposes. (AP)
