Gundy makes statement on 'Sports Illustrated's' Oklahoma State series

By Chip Patterson | Staff Writer

On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated will release the first installment of a five-part series on the findings of a 10-month investigation into the Oklahoma State football program.

The piece, which will reportedly include allegations ranging from funneling money to players through no-show jobs to academic misconduct and tolerated drug use, is said to include interviews with more than 60 former Cowboys along with current and former staff members.

On Monday afternoon, current Cowboys coach Mike Gundy released a video statement to address the report. Sports Illustrated will publish the first installment Tuesday at 9 a.m. ET.

"I'm very proud of what we've accomplished here, both on and off the field," Gundy said in what will be his only comment on the report. "Our goal has always been to take young people from where their parents have gotten them and to make them better over a four or five year period. We're very proud of that in many ways. So, until further time -- and obviously the university will make that decision -- there's not any comment that we would have on the Sports Illustrated article."

Oklahoma State (2-0) will play host to Lamar on Saturday night. The Cowboys then have a week off before kicking off their Big 12 schedule at West Virginia on Sept. 28.
