On Tuesday morning, Sports Illustrated posted the 3rd part of a series of articles that include allegations against the Oklahoma State University football program.

The allegations involve inappropriate activities and actions, the majority of which occurred between 2001 and 2007.

Part one, titled 'The Money' describes alleged payoffs to dozens of players for their performance on the field.

Parts 2 and 3: The Academics and The Drugs have also been released.  They allege players had homework and tests done for them and that players didn't go to classes.  The Drugs alleges drug use and dealing among the players. 

The Sex was published on Friday and The Fallout was published a day early, on Monday, instead of Tuesday as planned.

OSU Head Coach Mike Gundy said he had no comment about the article because the school had not seen specifics of the allegations.

The university says it has contacted the NCAA about the allegations.

University President Burns Hargis said the school is troubled by the claims and will investigate.

Is this still going on? Fine, let me read about. OK, basically, OSU did what every single school with a sports program does, but got caught. So........what? Get better at not getting caught.
