STILLWATER, Okla. (CBS NEWS) - Sports Illustrated’s ongoing investigation into improprieties in Oklahoma State football alleged Wednesday that Cowboys players had coursework performed for them and grades changed in an academic culture that promoted player eligibility above all else.

“The philosophy, the main focus, was to keep [star players] eligible through any means necessary,” Fath Carter, a Cowboys safety under Les Miles told the magazine. “The goal was not to educate but to get them the passing grades they needed to keep playing. That’s the only thing it was about.”

The most famous Cowboys player mentioned in the allegations is Dez Bryant, the star wide receiver who has gone on to play for the Dallas Cowboys and who was named second-team Academic All-Big 12 in 2008.
