The Dallas Morning News has uncovered information that former Oklahoma walk-on Jermaine Hardison could be the third player implicated by NCAA for being paid by Big Red Motors in Oklahoma City for work he didn’t do.

Citing student privacy regulations, OU officials blacked out the names of all players identified in hundreds of pages of investigation documents that it released to The News. It also blacked out some information pertaining to the players.

But Hardison’s name can be deciphered, along with the names of 14 other OU players, through close examination of some documents. The names include eight players on the 2006 roster.

As more and more information comes to light it’s looking more like Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma have a big problem on their hands. Rhett Bomar and J.D. Quinn were cut loose in an attempt to keep the NCAA off their backs, but it doesn’t look like that is going to be enough. The NCAA has been snooping around Norman and Oklahoma City and things don’t look good for the Sooners.

If they’re paying walk-ons to play for them what do you think they’re doing for stars like Adrian Peterson? The same Adrian Peterson who “test drove” a Lexus from Big Red for several weeks until someone caught him. If the NCAA discovers that OU dismissed Hardison because of his involvement with Big Red but tried to cover it up there’s sure to be additional penalties. And if any of those other 14 players were getting money they didn’t deserve they’re going to be in serious sh**.
