The football program at Oklahoma State University appears to be in some very hot water, according to investigative reporting by Sports Illustrated.

The weekly sports magazine cites allegations against the Cowboys football team that include payments to players by both coaches and boosters, academic fraud, lax enforcement of athletic department drug policy, and football recruits having sex with women representing the OSU football program as campus 'hostesses.'

Sports Illustrated reports that the alleged infractions occurred between 2001 and 2010. Current Louisiana State head coach Les Miles was head coach at OSU from 2001 to 2004. Former Cowboys quarterback Mike Gundy became Oklahoma State head coach in 2005.
