OSU allegations are making news this week after a 10-month investigation uncovered some disturbing things about the school's football program. For starters, Oklahoma State University has been accused of money laundering. On Sept. 10, Web Pro News reported that several players were paid for playing and doing odd jobs for coaches and staff.
In addition, OSU has been accused of academic cheating, drug use, sexual favors, and corruption. While several players have spoken out about the findings admitting that they're true, many have been quick to point out that most if not all of the players contributing to the story have been kicked out of OSU's football program.
OSU allegations were made public by a piece written in Sports Illustrated. Several people have been talking about the corruption and the other accusations, some in shock and others not even close to surprised.
"We wanted to take a comprehensive look at a big-time program, particularly one that made a rapid ascent. There’s obviously a steady drumbeat of scandal in college sports – improper benefits here; a recruiting violation there – and plenty of rumor and hearsay about the unseemly underbelly. For this piece, we were more about venturing inside the factory and seeing how the sausage is made," said Sports Illustrated Executive Editor John Wertheim.
Do the OSU allegations surprise you? Will the Oklahoma State University football program fold?
