Video: SI's Thayer Evans Addresses Backlash From "The Dirty Game" Piece

PR move?

All this week, Sports Illustrated has been releasing segments of its expose on Oklahoma State's football program, titled "The Dirty Game". But ironically, it's the publication itself that's been taking most of the heat - senior writer Thayer Evans has come under fire for being perceived as an Oklahoma "homer" and using shady tactics to gather his information. Today, he did an interview with SI's Maggie Gray in an attempt to set the record straight.

Evans is clearly standing behind his work despite the heavy criticism he's received. We'll soon see if the video segment helped his cause.
