TCU Won't Punish QB Casey Pachall For Failed Drug Test, According To Report

An offseason drug bust in Fort Worth, Texas, resulted in four TCU Horned Frogs football players (among 17 people total) facing charges for organizing a drug-dealing ring. The bust turned up 2.7 pounds of marijuana. After rumors that up to 82 different players could have failed a "pop" drug test issued by head coach Gary Patterson, the real number was revealed to be five, including QB Casey Pachall.

Pachall, however, won't have to miss any time for his temporary lapse in judgment.

We have yet to hear Patterson's explanation for the lack of discipline for Pachall, but I'm sure there are some recruits taking notice of a lenient coach, especially considering TCU is located in a big city and now plays in the Big 12.
