3 Gopher Suspensions Possibly Linked to Sex Tapes

Three players from the Minnesota Golden Gophers men’s basketball team have been suspended, and two graphic sex tapes are reportedly to blame.

The University of Minnesota has announced that one sophomore and two freshmen players were being sidelined for the remainder of the season just minutes before the Gophers were set to play against the University of Illinois. One of the players is said to have posted two “extremely graphic” sex tapes onto his Twitter account last week, in which he was clearly visible. The account has since been deactivated.

The University would not confirm whether these tapes were a factor in the discipline of the players, but did state on Goperhole.com that the students had violated the University’s expectations and standards.

Attorney Joe Tamburino of Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. weighed in on this case, stating that posting a sex tape to social media is not a crime in itself, but that the recording of a sex tape without the knowledge of a participant is a crime. “If you knowingly participate in a sex video, that video could be used for all sorts of things,” he said. So far, it is unclear if all of the participants in the videos knew they were being filmed.
