STILLWATER, Okla. (CBS SPORTS) – In the latest installment of its multipart report on the Oklahoma State football program, Sports Illustrated depicts a program run rampant with drug use and lax enforcement policies among coaches and officials at the school dating back to the 2001 season.
Much like Wednesday’s report on grade-fixing and the coaches favoring star players, former Oklahoma State players told Sports Illustrated that while lesser players might get suspended or kicked off the team for a positive drug test, star players would go unpunished.
“I was kind of in disbelief that people could do the things that they were doing,” said Jonathan Cruz, an offensive lineman on the 2002 team. “It was tied to how well you could produce. If you could produce on Saturday, things could be overlooked.”
