Four Gopher wrestlers suspended after drug investigation

Four University of Minnesota wrestlers have been suspended until Jan. 1, 2017 for their alleged involvement in this summer's drug investigation, according to multiple media reports Wednesday.

The wrestlers -- Tommy Thorn, Ethan Lizak, Larry Early and Brandon Krone -- have been suspended "for violation of team rules" according to a spokesman for the school's athletic department. Early is a redshirt freshman; the others are registered redshirt sophomores.

Thorn, a returning NCAA qualifier, earned a No. 7 ranking at 141 pounds in InterMat's NCAA Division I preseason rankings. Lizak, an NCAA qualifier in 2015 who redshirted last season, comes into this season ranked No. 11 at 125 pounds.

The athletes are suspended only from competing. They can attend class and can practice with the team, spokesman Jake Ricker said.

University officials would not confirm if these suspensions are related to the drug investigation.

While the wrestling season starts in November, most matches for the upcoming season will take place in 2017.

News of the university's drug investigation broke in late May 2016. In InterMat's first story, titled "Minnesota wrestlers investigated for selling, using Xanax" -- dated May 26 -- reported that four University of Minnesota wrestlers were being investigated for selling the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax, while head coach J Robinson was being investigated for how he may have tried to handle the situation internally. On June 1, coach Robinson was suspended with pay.

On June 24, Hennepin County prosecutors declined to charge any Minnesota wrestlers with selling Xanax, citing "insufficient evidence at this time." Despite that announcement, university police continued its investigation. One week later, Minnesota announced that Brandon Eggum has been named the acting head coach of the school's wrestling program. On Sept. 7, Robinson was fired after 30 years of service; Eggum was named interim head coach.

30 year coaching legend fired because he won't give up the names of the wrestlers involved, or in other words keeping his promise to their parents. 4 student athletes actually involved in the criminal activity get to rest until the real season begins. Way to lay down the law U of M, nice priorities.

I'm sure that the young Gopher wrestlers have learned their lessons and will not make those mistakes again. The Athletic Director (AD) for the U of MN should have remained involved with the entire situation from the onset. Instead the AD made Jay Robinson handle the situation until the Authorities got involved. Jay did what he thought was best for all parties and got fired for keeping his word and displaying integrity. The Athletic Director should have been the one fired.
