(Newser) – Two University of Nebraska wrestlers have been chucked off the team after posing naked for a gay pornography site, the Omaha World-Herald reports. The coach said the behavior of the two wrestlers, including 2007 125-pound NCAA champion Paul Donahoe, did not reflect "the standard of excellence we aspire to on and off the mat."

The owner of the site, which features nude and semi-clothed athletes, speculated that the photos had been leaked to a scandal blog by somebody out to get the pair and may have been alerted by the Nebraska tattoo one had near his waist. "They're good kids," he said. "They're outstanding athletes. I think Nebraska is being a little unreasonable."
