TCU QB Casey Pachall Admitted To Failing Drug Test

TCU's chances of heading into the Big 12 under the radar went up in a cloud of smoke this spring, when four Horned Frogs were arrested in a drug sting. And then coach Gary Patterson indicated that between five and 82 players were said to have tested positive for drug use. But no identities had been revealed until Friday, when a police report obtained by TCU 360 indicated quarterback Casey Pachall admitted to being one of the players who failed a drug test.

In the report, Pachall — on the day of the arrest of his roommate, Tanner Brock, in February — tells an officer that he had failed the most recent TCU drug test, and that he had smoked marijuana a day or two prior to it. Pachall also admits to having taken cocaine and Ecstasy in the past.

The entire report is available at TCU 360, but it seems unlikely that Pachall, who started all 13 games for the Horned Frogs in 2011, has not already seen some internal punishment for this.

TCU Drug Test Turned Up 5 Users, Not 82, According To Report

Former TCU Horned Frogs safety Devin Johnson may have a future career in politics. After his alleged mid-drug deal estimation that 82 TCU players failed a drug test administered by Gary Patterson, the Star-Telegram reports he was off by just a tad. Five players failed the test, while 11 had trace elements of marijuana -- 86 players showed no signs of drugs whatsoever.

We don't know whether the four players arrested as part of a six-month campus sweep -- Johnson, Tanner Brock, D.J. Yendrey, and Ty Horn -- were included in the five who failed the test. It would probably not surprise any of us to learn that one or two may have been.

Even if we lumped the five and 11 figures together, which wouldn't be fair to the 11, the team still doesn't exactly come across as the smoker's paradise envisioned by Brock and Johnson. Sixteen total players with any amount of weed in their systems would actually mean TCU's football team ranks below the national marijuana use average, according to one government study, which settled on 21 percent of college students.

Tanner Brock, D.J. Yendrey Among Arrested TCU Football Players

The names of the four TCU Horned Frogs football players who were arrested for their alleged involvement in a drug ring of some sort have been released. Linebacker Tanner Brock, defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey, safety Devin Johnson and offensive tackle Ty Horn. All four were expelled, as were the other 13 students who were arrested as part of the six-month, inter-departmental investigation -- which isn't yet over.

The list of all 17 names is available here.

All four players would've been quite significant contributors in 2012. Yendrey led all Horned Frogs interior linemen in tackles in 2011, adding 5.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. Brock played sparingly in 2011 due to injury, but led the team in tackles in 2010. Horn was expected to compete for a starting job in 2012, with three senior starters departing. And Johnson finished 2011 with 49 tackles and three pass breakups.

All except Horn were rising seniors.
