Players on Oklahoma State University’s elite football team used marijuana routinely from 2001 through 2012, and in some cases dealt the drug, Sports Illustrated reports.

“Drugs were everywhere,” Donnell Williams, a linebacker on the 2006 team, told SI. Players said that marijuana use, including sometimes smoking before games, was largely unchecked by coaches or team staff. They also reported snorting cocaine and misusing proscription drugs.

The SI report is the third in a five-part series investigating the team, which finished third in the country in 2011. On Monday, the magazine reported widespread under-the-table payments to players, in violation of college football policy.
