Regarding Sports Illustrated's “expose” on Oklahoma State University: Were the persons quoted in the story paid for their interviews? If charged with defamation and slander and put under oath, would they recant any or all of the statements made? Allegations are claims or assertions of illegal wrongdoing without proof; they should be treated as opinion until real proof is forthcoming. This could simply be an attempt to make good recruits decide not to look at or commit to OSU. I hope that the NCAA is able to discern quickly what's happening now in the program and make a statement as to the truth of the matter.
