    Over the last couple of weeks someone has been circulating so-called BP oil claim forms in the Lake Charles area. While man, if not most medical claims associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill have been settled, someone is holding meetings around the Lake area trying to get people to sign up.

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

By Josh Meeks jmeeks@wafb.com

Multiple media outlets including ESPN and CBS Sports have obtained information that Sports Illustrated is set to release a multi-part investigative series alleging NCAA violations and other improprieties at Oklahoma State University during a time period that includes Les Miles time as head coach.

The report alleges numerous violations including coaching staff and boosters paying athletes for jobs not performed, and overpaying for jobs.

 In addition, the report will allege that the school's drug abuse policy was not uniformly administered by staff.

The report also says that hostesses within the OSU ‘Orange Pride' program provided sex to recruits.

Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder said, "We are shocked by the allegations raised about our football program. We take the allegations seriously. Whether they have merit or not, we don't know. But we will find out."

The majority of violations are alleged to have taken place between 2001 and 2007.

Les Miles was head coach at OSU from 2001 until taking his job at LSU in 2005.

After Saturday's game against UAB, WAFB Sports Director Steve Schneider asked Les Miles about the Sports Illustrated report.

Coach Miles responded saying "I don't know of any improprieties while I was the coach there. I can tell you this: we have always done things right and I really enjoyed my time at Oklahoma State…it has never been a place where you needed to cheat to have success."

The Sports Illustrated article will be released sometime this week.
