Tuesday, September 10, 2013

A Sports Illustrated story out today on alleged cheating at Oklahoma State claims former Chattanooga Notre Dame star Adarius Bowman was among players that teammates said got payments. 

It is a five-part series and the first story in on now.

The article says:

"Girtman, Mickens and Johnson told SI they received bonus payments, and seven other players say they were aware of payouts. Another dozen Cowboys -- including Williams, running back Tatum Bell (2000 to '03), wide receiver Adarius Bowman (2005 to '07), defensive end Victor DeGrate (2003 to '06), quarterback Josh Fields (2001 to '03) and safety Vernon Grant (2002 to '04) -- were identified by teammates as having received bonuses. Teammates say they knew those players were paid because they witnessed them being handed money and/or those players openly discussed their bonuses."

Bowman played in the Canadian Football League after his college career.
