SI senior writers George Dohrmann and Thayer Evans completed a 10-month investigation of the Oklahoma State football program. After receiving information about widespread corruption at Oklahoma State, they spoke with more than a hundred sources with ties to the program. This included 64 former players, all of whom spoke on the record and independently of one another. While most of them did not graduate from the university and many left on ill terms, the picture they paint is consistent: The school acted on two fronts to build a winning program.

The investigation reveals the measures that a program will take to become elite -- and the collateral damage that follows.
