Four TCU Horned Frogs players were among 17 arrested on drug charges due to a six-month investigation by multiple layers of law enforcement. While the four players have yet to be named, we learned a few more details from the rest of the Wednesday morning press conference after the big bombshell dropped. The names of the players, however, will be released later in the day.
Drugs on the market, according to TCU police chief Steve McGee, included marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, mollies, acid, and prescription drugs. I'm told "mollies" refers to powdered ecstasy, but don't look at me, man. I'm not the DEA. The investigation, chancellor Victor Boschini said, was prompted by complaints from locals.
The news sours what should've been a week of good news for TCU football, but it does prompt obligatory WELCOME TO THE BIG TIME jokes.
