Those four TCU Horned Frogs players who have been accused of running a criminal organization from Ty Horn's Fort Worth house could face probation instead of jail time. The Wall Street Journal reports both prosecutors and defense lawyers say time in the slammer is unlikely for the 18 students arrested in the drug sweep.
So, yep, that's the story. We've gone from all of Texas Christian being jailed for decades due to a drug-ravaged cult to four or so players maybe getting probation. This story has been kind of a downer for fans of legal intrigue and jailhouse daring, but it would seem to fit the crime of selling stuff, even if felonies are involved.
Those five Frogs who allegedly failed coach Gary Patterson's Feb. 1 drug test may or may not have been included in the group of arrested players.
