The real story of the Oklahoma State scandal is that no one cares

Oklahoma State, one of college football’s rags-to-(literally)-riches stories over the last decade, is alleged by the country’s grandest sports publication to have done it with what amounts to a thorough flaunting of fundamental rules in college sports.
