There are no bombshells in the third edition of Sports Illustrated's series "The Dirty Game."
The articles accuse the Oklahoma State football program of widespread violations of NCAA rules and laws.
Thursday's story is titles "The Drugs" and it quotes several former players who claim the use of marijuana wasn't just rampant, it was overlooked.
"I know firsthand about ten players who used to use marijuana on an everyday or every other day basis" former Cowboy linebacker Marcus Richardson said.
Former Pokes running back Kevin White chimed in saying star players were allowed to get away with just about anything.
"I knew that they were dirty because they were smoking with me but I was in trouble for failing a drug test but they weren't"
Herschel Sims played on the 2012 Fiesta Bowl team. He told SI players were out of control while on the trip. Sims said if real drug tests had been given "we probably would have lost about 15-20 people who actually played."
Former OSU quarterback Brandon Weeden is now with the Cleveland Browns. Weeded told Cleveland.com the allegations are no more than sour grapes from a group of troubled young men.
"They're the guys who got kicked off the team for drugs or got kicked off the team for whatever may be, they were dismissed."
Weeden reminded when listening to a story, it's always important to consider the source “these are guys who aren’t' real credible."
The fourth installment of the series alleges member of the PSU hostess program called Orange Pride had sex with recruits.
That will publish Friday morning after 8:00 am.
