For the record, I taught at OSU from 2005 to 2011, and I taught a majority of the football players in that time frame. The only thing I can speak to specifically is academics. I taught EVERY high profile football player in that time. And I was NEVER pressured to pass them. In fact, it was the exact opposite. If a player wasn't performing in the classroom, I called the Academic Center AND the advisers or position coaches, and in EVERY SINGLE CASE I was told, "If they're not doing the work, then fail them. They need to learn." In addition, I had Coach Gundy step in my class doing class checks to make sure his players were there. I also sat in the Academic Center and watched the tutors with the athletes. They never, EVER did the work for them. Like I said, I can mainly speak to academics; that's what I dealt with. But I can also tell you that there is a great difference between those student/athletes who are defending the program and those who are accusing the program. The accusers were marginal students at best. Those defending the program were excellent men in and out of the classroom. Just one man's experience.
