OSU allegations are outlined in a five-part Sports Illustrated report. The series named "The Dirty Game," outlines player payoffs, grade changing, and sexual favors. According to United Press International on Sept. 10, 2013, the report is result of a ten-month investigation into the team, former player and staff.
The article alleges OSU built an elite team over the last decade through academic improprieties, player payouts, booster payouts for work not performed, lax drug monitoring, and a hostess program that provided recruits with sex.
OSU allegations are the fruit of interviews with 64 former players who were on the team from 1999 through 2011. The long list of NCAA violations is directed towards both current coach Mike Gundy, who is in his seventh year as head coach, and former coach Les Miles.
The OSU allegations will be described in depth starting with part one of the series called "The Money," where players will admit to receiving up to $25,000. Part two will disclose grade changing and other academic impropriety. In part three drug allegations are brought to light. Part four will delve into the sex scandal. Part five deals with the fallout from a corrupt college football program.
The OSU Allegations area against a program that is at the top of its game. OSU won its first Big-12 Championship in 2011 and then went on to defeat Stanford in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The team has participated in bowl games every season since Gundy took over as coach.
