    Default ESPN's Naked In Nebraska (Donahoe); Huskers Rebuttal

    New, very lengthy story at the ESPN website: Naked In Nebraska: Paul Donahoe's nude photos cost him a college career at Nebraska

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/otl/n...ory?id=4242983

    ... and the University of Nebraska's rebuttal from the Omaha World Herald

    Listening to Jordan and Donahoe speak, they just sounded... well, kind of dumb. Which I guess isn't suprising, considering they did a very dumb thing. I also found it ironic that both of them were complaining that "we didn't hurt anyone" when Jordan (I think?) also had assault charges and Donahoe's girlfriend called 911 on them.

    I totally agree and would like to add one thing. They (more so Donahoe) sound very spoiled and oblivious.

    Whether we agree with it or not, drunken antics of college athletes is often greeted with a "boys will be boys" attitude. In contrast, homo-sexuality and porn are hot button issues and it just seems that these two young men lack that perspective and common sense. What they did was wrong because they were paid for their likeness and doing that on a gay website in the nude makes it alot harder to overlook the numerous other transgressions these guys have been a part of simply because of the attention it brought.

    Look at it this way, did anyone see an article on ESPN about Donahoe's girlfriend calling his coaches or 911? No, you didn't because that is tolerated these days to the point were it isn't news (whether or not you agree with that is another issue). What we did see was an article about them posing nude on a homo-sexual website and that is news in this country. Nebraska didn't want that type of publicity and had more than enough reasons to kick them off the team. In the end, it falls back on the athletes who seem very misguided.

    I would imagine this could get very ugly for the coaching staff there now. No matter how true or severe the "bad stuff" discussed in that video are, it makes everyone involved look dirty.

    Wow, these kids are acting like someone did THEM wrong! Unbelievable. I agree with what Gold said in that no one looks good here but from this video, Jordan and Donahoe are not just nieve but they are punks. Good riddance.

    Didn't Mocco win a championship at two different universities? If so, how could Donahoe be the first?

    Good point. Mocco won if for Iowa in 2003 and Okla State in 2005.

    He was second in 2002 whilie at Iowa, and second for Okla State in 2006. Interesting symetry.

    What the University of Nebraska is saying in this case is that breaking a moral law is worse than breaking a state law. This is a slippery slope that many schools do not want to mess with. Posing for nude photos did not hurt one single person and probably put a smile on some people's faces. Drinking and driving can and has killed people, porn never killed anyone...well not directly.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
