GEORGE DOHRMANN: FUTURE REPORT ON OSU DRUG COUNSELING PROGRAM ‘SHOCKING AND DISHEARTENING'
Sports Illustrated senior writer George Dohrmann, who penned every word of the series on OSU, answered questions about the piece's first installment on Doug Gottlieb's radio show Tuesday afternoon.
He also gave a glimpse of what's to come, and encouraged readers to pay attention to the Cowboys' drug counseling program in Part 3 of the series expected to be released Thursday.
“I know that's not sexy, because people want to say money or something like that,” he said. “But to me, that was a really shocking and disheartening bit that we learned about the program that they didn't really take that seriously.
“And I think there were some kids who they could have really helped that, because of the system they have in place, help was not really available to them.”
GOVERNOR FALLIN: ‘WE SHOULD TAKE THESE ALLEGATIONS SERIOUSLY'
Even governor Mary Fallin weighed in on the Sports Illustrated series on OSU.
Fallin, an OSU graduate, called the allegations “disturbing” and “disappointing,” but expressed confidence in Hargis and the university's leadership.
“We should take these allegations seriously,” Fallin said. “We should face them head on. If there are any ongoing problems now, we certainly need to address those immediately, but it will take some time for them to look into these very serious reports that have been made about Oklahoma State University.
“I do want to make it very clear that I have the highest regard for Oklahoma State University. It is a fine institution. There are great students there. Certainly parents can have confidence in the programs they have there now. As we saw, the majority of these allegations were in the past, but we still need to read through the total report to see if there are any inaccuracies or any problems that are ongoing right now.”
