ESPN is now questioning some of the testimony given by former OSU players in the Sports Illustrated “Dirty Games” expose series.

Thursday afternoon published a report stating some of what players are quoted saying is inconsistent with university documents they have obtained.

Specifically, ESPN reported former OSU safety Fath’ Carter’s statements in SI’s stories don’t match the official documents. Fath’ wore number 2 in this picture.

Carter talked about being paid by boosters and having others complete course work for the players.

ESPN stated university documents do not support the claim that Carter graduated and was in class in 2004 with Tatum Bell where the professor failed them because they were no longer eligible to play.

ESPN said running back Dexter Pratt also made claims that don’t match up.

They reported Pratt took online classes as well as courses in the classroom; SI’s article states the player only took classes online.
