The report alleges that Tudman has no formal training in drug counseling and his bio on the website, which indicates he has a “double masters in health and counseling” is inaccurate. SI claims that he only has a single master's degree in Health Promotions and Counseling.

This report was the third in a five-part series, with the first two parts, released Tuesday and Wednesday, alleging widespread payment of players (using a bonus system and scam jobs) and academic fraud throughout the program.

Parts 4 (“Sex”) and 5 (“Fallout”) are scheduled for release on Friday and next Tuesday morning, respectively.

Here's a synopsis, from SI, on the remaining pair of reports:

* Part 4: Sex (Friday morning): OSU's hostess program, Orange Pride, figured so prominently in the recruitment of prospects that the group more than tripled in size under previous head coach Les Miles. Both Miles and Mike Gundy, then an assistant coach, took the unusual step of personally interviewing candidates. Multiple former players and Orange Pride members say that a small subset of the group had sex with recruits, a violation of NCAA rules.

* Part 5: The Fallout (next Tuesday morning): SI finds that many players who were no longer useful to the football program were cast aside, returning to worlds they had hoped to escape. Some have been incarcerated, others live on the streets, many have battled drug abuse and a few have attempted suicide.
