Dez Bryant Says He Never Got Paid At OKState, As SI-Bashing Continues


Check out Oklahoma State’s “Response Page” to allegations that its football program is crooked. Pretty impressive stuff, whipped up in record time: almost as if the university had been expecting trouble.

As you no doubt know, Sports Illustrated today issued part 1 of its five-part report on the Cowboys’ football program, in which it alleges that Oklahoma State players got paid and boosters broke rules from 2001 through 2010.

As we know from the Penn State scandal, etc., this is a game that’s played in the media as much as it is in the administrative offices of the respective colleges and the NCAA. And OSU is playing the game well so far, having lined up dozens of supporters — including billionaire T. Boone Pickens.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was widely considered the best wide receiver in college when he played for Oklahoma State in 2007 and ’08, has also joined the support group. He tweets that no one ever paid him, monetarily or otherwise.

Obviously more on this as it develops, including many Mike Gundy “I’m a man, I’m 40!” references. Should be fun.


  • Scott McKissack

    What a joke, if anyone was getting paid, Dez woould have been the first one with his hand out.

  • D Turner

    Ask Dez if he will answer all questions asked of him hooked to a lie detector. All these statements made by pros should be ALL answered on one.

    Who would be asking the questions? And why in blue blazes should anyone answer any questions from this OU shill ……… He sites 3 players and an Admin Lady, who are all DEAD and not able to defend themselves —– The others for the most part were kicked off the team for various discretions
