An inquiry by the NCAA and an independent investigator has concluded that a Sports Illustrated expose alleging misconduct in the Oklahoma State football program to be “fundamentally unfounded.” The NCAA and the university said Tuesday the joint investigation found three instances that may lead to NCAA infractions. SI said it interviewed more than 60 former players and found evidence of potential NCAA violations under coaches Les Miles and current coach Mike Gundy (pictured) dating to 2001. The series of stories included numerous former players making allegations of cash payments, academic misconduct, inconsistent enforcement of drug policies and some of the school’s recruiting hostesses having sex with prospects from 2001-10. – Associated Press
