    What do you mean "under the table". I thought it was pretty public that they find jobs for guys that don't have to show up and get paid more than any other "employees". Just ask the QB that left a few years ago.

    They've hired great coaches. It's no real accident they are successful in football, men's basketball, and woman's basketball. They have good academics, too.

    Re: How does Oklahoma do it?

    Money. They are also goodevery year because of there name. if you were one of the best football players in the country, would you go to a storied program like oklahoma and try to win a national championship, or would you rather go to a lesser-known team such as ISU. Now personally if i were in this position, i would pick ISU because i would be worshipped, but none of these hot-shot players would even think about ISU. It comes down to tradition and $$$$. Plus, the bball team is so good because they have money produced by the football teams success. With this extra money, they can have better facilities and coaches.

    Re: How does Oklahoma do it?

    Remember the former starting QB that got paid for a summer job even though he never even showed up to work. The employer was also a big booster.

    Probably one of the very few at OU to get caught.
