The most important open problem in the modular representation theory of the symmetric group is finding the number and multiplicity of the composition factors of the Specht modules. In characteristic 0 these are just the simple modules of FSn, but in positive characteristic they may no longer be simple. We will survey the rich interplay between representation theory and combinatorics of partitions with the goal to show our ongoing work in obtaining an upper bound for certain Specht modules. We will conjecture how to extend this to all Specht modules.
