Oklahoma State

first_imgI suppose by now you have read about the mess at Oklahoma State.  Allegedly around 2005-2008 the football program was making their own profits by selling drugs.  Several players have come forward saying that drugs were so prevalent in the locker room that everyone had to know what was going on.  Like most stories that appear in major magazines, I am sure this one has been glorified to make it more sensational.  However, it again adds to the perception that some of our major football programs are so corrupt that players run the program instead of the coaches.  It has been the bone of contention for several years now that those conferences that lead the power standings every year recruit anybody that can win them a football game.  If you want to believe some people, some of these players never go to class and are at the University only to win football games.  From some of my previous articles, you know I tend to think somewhat like these people.  If some of our major colleges can never put a winner on the field, there has to be an explanation of why certain players gravitate to certain schools.  There is always the reason given that winning brings the kids and nothing else is the incentive.  Until the NCAA wants to clamp down on all schools alike, it is not going to change.last_img read more
