This morning, Sports Illustrated published the first part of a five-part series in which the magazine learned all sorts of SHADY BUSINESS details about the Oklahoma State football program from 1999 to 2011.  The first part, which focuses on payments to players for on-field performance and $700-an-hour summer jobs, quotes former players about receiving cash from boosters, coaches, and athletic department staffers for accomplishments on the field, as well as brief labor for money. One assistant coach named as a distributor of cash handouts under Les Miles at Oklahoma State was former running backs coach Larry Porter, who would follow Miles to LSU in 2005.  Porter would later be named head coach at Memphis in 2010 and was fired after the 2011 season.  He spent 2012 at Arizona State under Todd Graham and in January of 2013 found himself employed as running backs coach at Texas.  Having never risen above the position of running backs coach, minus the adventure in Memphis, Porter is most known for his ability to recruit and, ALLEGEDLY, hand money to players who play well.  But just how much cash has Porter allegedly distributed over the years?  Based on extensive research that was mostly filled with cursing at sites that let you make charts and graphs for free for being terrible, the Belly of the Beast investigative team brings its findings to you in self-made chart form.
