TCU's Gary Patterson On Drug Test Numbers: 'Reality Is Somewhere In Between'

The TCU Horned Frogs, along with the school's administration, student body, family, alumni and fans, are still reeling from the drug sting that ended in multiple arrests and four players being kicked off the football team.

The Associated Press, via Sports Illustrated, reports that TCU head coach Gary Patterson is trying to maintain a business-as-usual attitude and forge ahead with his preparations for next season.

"The most disappointing thing for me is I kind of felt like everybody decided ... all of a sudden that we went from really good to everybody's bad,'' Patterson said, speaking publicly for the first time since the Feb. 15 arrests. "And that's not true.''

There were some rumors that the football team had a mass failure of a Feb. 1 surprise drug test, but the Fort Worth Star-Telegram put the failure number at five players on the day after the arrests.

While not getting specific, Patterson said Friday that "the numbers that were thrown out early are not true. ... Reality is somewhere in between.''

The story is far from being completely revealed, but Patterson and the school administrators have been dealing with the situation as well as could be expected.
