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.
