Amid allegations from Sports Illustrated, claiming Oklahoma State University was involved in numerous improprieties from 2001 to 2011, the Cowboys have not allowed the scrutiny from the media to derail them, yet anyway.

As of this moment there is not enough substantial evidence against OSU and the University is clear of any punishment. However, tomorrow, Sports Illustrated will release it’s fifth and final part of the five-part series ripping into Oklahoma State in one last attempt to cast shade on the University, and get someone, anyone in trouble.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have a bye week this week before they go to West Virginia to begin Big 12 conference play. One can only hope the final piece of the report is either nonsense, or does not involve any current staff, if so, their morale is sure to sky-rocket as they would be victorious in this whole ordeal. This would give them momentum and a week to rejuvenate themselves after the negative media craze.

The Pokes are closing in on the Top 10. They are currently stationed at number 11 in the nation according to the Associated Press Top 25 poll. There are two teams ranked above them with losses, number 9 Georgia and number 10 Texas A&M. Number 6 ranked LSU goes against number 9 Georgia on the 28th. If the Pokes can manage to knock off the Mountaineers on the road, they may crack the top 10 once that is said and done, regardless of their bye week.
