Major scandal developing at Oklahoma State

Sports Illustrated is reporting on major violations at OSU that started under Les Miles and continued under Mike Gundy. It is worth noting that at this point, the allegations seems to be based entirely on interviews with former players, many who left the program on bad terms. But SI claims to have interviewed 64 people independently and found corroborating stories that include

  • Cash payments by boosters of up to several thousand dollars per game
  • No-show jobs, including during the university's stadium renovation
  • Loosely enforced drug rules
  • Academic fraud
  • The use of sex to lure recruits

SI is also stating that players were cut from the team for dubious reasons and subsequently left college, contributing to many shattered lives. So far everyone is denying, and apparently many of the violations are outside the NCAA's statute of limitations. But if true, the overall scope, involving so many boosters, coaches, and players over such a long period, makes this look worse than Miami and maybe SMU (I'm not old enough to remember what that involved beyond payments).

Nice to see you all again!
