"Both senior Paul Donahoe and junior Kenny Jordan had prior run-ins with law enforcement - both for alcohol violations and Jordan for assault"
In a statement released Tuesday, NU coach suggested that the team had other disciplinary problems with the two wrestlers.
"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," Nebraskla wrestling coach Mark Manning said in a statement last week.
Not only did the coach publically refer to a past history of trouble but its pretty well documented among Nebraska insiders that he had some issues at Nebraska, although I dont remember any specific incident mentioned in particular.
There is also the fact that Jordan originally enrolled in Nebraska and ended up having to transfer to a community college for whatever reason before coming back to nebraska. I'm not going to speculate about whether it was alcohol or grades or what, but usually there is SOME problem when you are attending a good university and have to transfer to JC, and it definitely wasnt about money, since he ended up coming back and is now going to Purdue.
From a more personal perspective, as a dominant force in the local beer pong scene I can tell you that anyone who falls out of a window while playing beer pong likely has some issues with alcohol (as do the dumbfucks that set the beerpong table up next to a window).
If all of that stuff doesnt add up to a guy with a history of trouble I dont know what does... I think you would have to know me personally to really get what I'm saying here, maybe it comes off the wrong way on a message board.
The bottom line is that the kid has a history of trouble, and I totally dont care, I'm just pointing it out. I'm not perfect myself and I've had plenty of problems with school, if I was trying to balance wrestling with everything else I have going on maybe I would end up going JUCO too.
