Fath' Carter, the only SI source yet to openly stand by his story, might have more questions to answer following an ESPN report calling his quotes "inconsistent" with university documents.


Carter told SI writer George Dohrmann that he graduated from OSU with a degree in education. But the university's registrar office shows he attended from 2000-05 but never graduated.

Carter also claimed that while attending Oklahoma State, he and running back Tatum Bell had a class together in which they were given A's, then took another class with the same professor in 2004 and received F's. However, records show Bell withdrew after the Cotton Bowl in January and did not take any classes in 2004.

The former safety spoke with our own Tess Maune recently in regards to SI's drug report, saying, "I did urinate for a couple people, I guess, to pass them."

He later sent us this statement: "I never smoked...I never took an actual drug test for another player at all. I gave my urine to only one person one time."
