Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden met with the Cleveland media on Wednesday and was expectedly asked about Sports Illustrated’s allegations regarding Oklahoma State football, which included some from when he was there.

His response was strong.

“I’m surprised that a credible institution like Sports Illustrated would do a 10 month investigation and all of a sudden have no credible facts,” Weeden told FoxSports.com. “These are guys that aren’t real credible. It’s comical. I can’t wait to read the other four (parts). I really can’t.”

He was particularly critical of Thayer Evans, a writer who, back in 2011, called Oklahoma State ‘Chokie State’ after a win at Texas.

“The guy that wrote the article, he’s an OU guy,” Weeden told reporters. “He’s always had it out for Oklahoma State. When we won at Texas, he asked me, ‘When is it gonna happen, when is Okie State going to pull their Okie Choke like they always do?’ I laughed.”

He denied any wrongdoing from the school

“Coach Gundy does an unbelievable job running a clean program,” Weeden told reporters. “He takes a lot of pride in that, being clean, playing by the rules. I saw nothing but that, no wrongdoing in anything that I ever saw that goes back to when I was a freshman.”
