Seymore Shaw was a talented running back for the Oklahoma State football program until 2005. That's when Shaw left the program after being suspended by head coach Mike Gundy after he was charged by Stillwater police for felony counts of first-degree burglary and larceny and misdemeanor counts of domestic abuse and malicious injury to property.
Shaw became a major part of the Sports Illustrated series slamming Oklahoma State football called "The Dirty Game" when he accused the school of multiple offenses. Now Shaw is changing his tune, read his entire statement below.
"I agreed to talk with Thayer Evans with the presumption that we would be talking about something completely different. I became uncomfortable with where the conversation was going and later retracted all statements. I very clearly let him know I did not want to be a part of his story and that he did not have my permission to use any part of our conversation or my name. At no point in time was I paid or looking to "out" OSU, players, coaches, or anyone associated with the school. I can't say a lot at this time, but please know there are untruths being written and the truth will eventually come out.
I love Oklahoma State University. Playing collegiate football and earning a degree from OSU was the opportunity of a lifetime. I have no complaints about the football program or the school.
I would like to apologize to Oklahoma State University and its fans for being a part of this article. I am ashamed and embarrassed that my name is being associated with the school in this way. These are not my true feelings of the university or the football program, but In my opinion, those of a reporter so desperately looking for anything to support his agenda. I am deeply saddened that my close friends and people I consider to be like family were targeted in this article. I am hoping to rebuild trust and friendships with those who we're truly hurt.
The third installment of the series wil be released Thursday morning. It will focus on alleged sex between women in the OSU hostess program and football recruits.
