Report: Football Players at Oklahoma State Got Paid

On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated released the first of a five-part investigative series on the Oklahoma State football program. The series is set to detail all of the deceit which transpired in the program beginning in the Les Miles era.

Allegedly 29 players with ties to the program have received money, with big names like Darrent Williams, Tatum Bell, and Josh Fields as part of those receiving money.

SI reported that payments to players, which stretched from 2001 to at least 2011 under head coaches Miles and Gundy, were primarily delivered three ways: a bonus system based on performance on the field; plus direct payments to players from boosters and coaches independent of performance and no-show or sham jobs that included work related to the renovation of Boone Pickens Stadium — that involved at least one assistant coach and several boosters.

Academic misconduct, drug use, and members of a hostess program had sex with recruits are a few more transgressions that allegedly transpired in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

On Saturday, the 13th-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys host Lamar as they prepare for their Big-12 conference opener vs West Virginia on Sept. 21st.
