Friendly Voices - Paul Donahoe

"I am straight, but on the forums people make a lot of gay jokes about me. I'm not too concerned. They can talk about me all they want, it doesn't matter. If a guy wants to be with a guy, who cares? Obviously, I did it for the money. We kept thinking no one would ever find out because it was a gay website and we really wanted that money. Gay kids in Lincoln wrote, 'Hey, nice website. I saw you.' I wrote back, 'Don't tell anyone,' but with word of mouth, people found out." - Former University of Nebraska wrestler Paul Donahoe.

Donahoe was booted from his team last year because a university logo was visible in his nude photo shoot for a gay porn site. By NCAA rules, athletes are not allowed to personally profit by promoting their image. Donahoe transferred to Edinboro University in Pennsylvania and has been reinstated by the NCAA.
