Ohio State? Check. Oregon? Check.
The Oklahoma State football program is the next big program that is expected to be in trouble with the NCAA. According to sources, Sports Illustrated is expected to release a report of widespread NCAA violations and other impromper benefits against the school.
Sports Illustrated is going to allege that Joe DeForest, who is a former Mike Gundy assistant coach, paid players for their performance. These players also had their grades changed in order to allow the players to play for the school, and these players in question had their schoolwork done by tutors.
There’s other allegations that suggest that hostesses in the “Orange Pride” program had sex with recruits. Also, there’s other violations that go all the way back to when Les Miles was the Oklahoma State head coach, before leaving the school in 2005 for LSU.
The NCAA and the Big 12 Conference have been informed of the pending report. And the school has reportedly been informed that the story will not affect the eligibility of any current player or coach.
The allegations refer to 85% of events that took place between the 2001 and 2007 seasons. This could help the Cowboys, as it is outside the four-year window that the NCAA has a statue of limitations in order to act.
With it being outside of four years, the NCAA could hand down lesser violations. DeForest, the individual in question, is now an assistant coach at West Virginia, and has denied the charges of the story.
The story will report that DeForest allegedly paid players through the 2011 calendar year.
“Oklahoma State University is deeply troubled by these claims,” president Burns Hargis said in a statement. “We will investigate the accuracy of the allegations and take all appropriate action. We do not condone or tolerate improper conduct in our athletic programs.”
