Weeden calls Oklahoma State allegations 'comical'

BEREA, Ohio — Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden called Sports Illustrated's allegations of widespread corruption within Oklahoma State's football program "comical" and said one of the magazine's reporters has an agenda against the school.

Weeden, who set numerous records at Oklahoma State from 2008-11, said he "literally laughed out loud" while reading the first part of SI's investigative series. Weeden said the players SI interviewed for the expose "are guys that aren't real credible." Weeden said he did not accept any money while he was at OSU and praised coach Mike Gundy for running a clean program.

Weeden said he did not see any wrongdoing during his time at the Big 12 school.

The second-year NFL starter believes SI writer Thayer Evans targeted Oklahoma State because he's a fan of rival Oklahoma.

Weeden said "it's comical. The truth will come out."
