Sports Illustrated's supposedly explosive investigation into the Oklahoma State football program has come and gone. How the series came together has actually generated more discussion in the aftermath of its release than anything that was reported. Former SI writers Jeff Pearlman and John Walters join the podcast to discuss their reaction to the series and the journalistic questions surrounding it.
- The value of investigating "scandals" in major college athletics;
- The allegations regarding SI's information-gathering techniques;
- The fact-checking process;
- Handling investigations that lack supporting documentation;
- Concerns about "agenda-driven" reporting;
- And more.
