ESPN to tackle gay porn wrestling story

New, 13 comments

EPSN's "Outside the Lines" show addresses the dismissal of former Nebraska wrestlers Kenny Jordan and Paul Donahoe after they appeared nude on Fratmen.tv, a gay porn site (see our archive here). The show airs Sunday June 14 at 9 a.m. EDT on ESPN and noon EDT on ESPN News (see video preview above).

The program "investigates the dismissal of the Nebraska wrestlers for posing on a porn website, and the coaching staff's own cover-ups." The wrestlers had some past incidents prior to their dismissal, but ESPN also found a "pattern of leniency" in the wrestling program.

I was told that Donahoe continues to be very gay friendly, while Jordan says on air that his posing nude while in top physical condition "put smiles on people's faces," adding that "we're not bad kids. We did some porn -- get over it." I'll do a larger recap once the full episode is available (update: my recap).

Update: Donahoe scheduled to pose naked again for Fratmen.
