U of Nebraska gymnasts get away with Harlem Shake video, but Susquehanna University football players get suspended for theirs

AKSARBENT can scarcely recall the last time former Athletic Director Tom Osbourne must have been this proud.

Susquehanna University official statement on the video:
Earlier this week, a video involving 11 student-athletes simulating sex acts in the university’s weight room was produced and publicly posted. We met with the student-athletes involved and removed them from their intercollegiate athletics teams. At the same time, the students were given a plan of action outlining the pathway to reinstatement to their teams.Susquehanna University promotes a culture of respect and personal responsibility. Participation in intercollegiate athletics is a great privilege. The student-athlete handbook calls upon student-athletes to be exemplary role models by demonstrating respect for others and acting in a first-class manner. We are disappointed by this behavior and the way in which these student-athletes represented our teams and the university. We hope that they learn from this experience, and that they will earn their way back to representing Susquehanna as members of their teams.
 The real Harlem Shake:
