TCU QB flunked drug test

Recommended Posts

FORT WORTH — TCU quarterback Casey Pachall, a second-team All-Mountain West selection last season, told Fort Worth police in February that he had flunked a team-administered drug test after smoking marijuana, according to police reports released Friday.

Pachall was interviewed by police on Feb. 15 after officers executed an arrest warrant for teammate Tanner Brock at the home they shared on Winfield Avenue, according to the documents, which were first reported by the student-run website tcu360.com.

Pachall told police that he had smoked marijuana as recently as a week or two before Feb. 15 and that he had failed a team drug test administered by coach Gary Patterson on Feb. 1.

A source told the Star-Telegram in February that five players had tested positive for marijuana and failed the team drug test. Another 11 had trace amounts within the margin of error, the source said.

I'm not sure how marijuana enhances performance and should therefore cause TCU to be called cheaters, but I do hope the kid learns from this experience and that it makes him a better husband and father in the long run.

Gentleman,

How is breaking the law and covering it up not cheating. I marvel at this board's reasoning.

Where is the cover up? He readily admitted his transgressions to the police when questioned, heck he even went above and beyond in admitting to snorting cocaine... If your assertion is that anyone breaking the law is a cheater, how many of our own football players are cheating by drinking underage? I'd hazard a guess at at least 8 of 10?

As I recall the story back in the day when it took place, Len Bias tried drugs for the first time ever and he tragically died after that first time.

Bias took a dose of cocaine which likely induced cardiac arrhythmia.

ESPN's 30/30 has been running a documentary on Bias.

That is such a tragic story. Growing up in Celtic land, I heard that story a few times as a kid. Definitely made me want to stay the hell away from cocaine. In fact, it still does. I'm certainly not about to go snort something that might kill me on spot. No one right of mind should ever do anything beyond drinking alcohol and smoking weed.

Yep, because weed is such a good alternative.

Compared to cocaine, it is a fantastic alternative. Marijuana is safer than alcohol (and tobacco) is. The only reason it's illegal is because the government was in bed with too many people in the timber industry that had a lot to lose when hemp became a popular alternative to timber, so they went on a smear campaign to illegalize it. It'll be fully legal in all states within 25 years...legal, taxed, and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Does it really? That's absolutely insane.

I would 100% without hesitation prefer my daughter smoke pot in college rather than drink alcohol. And I REALLY would prefer she smoke pot than pop prescription pills that some quack gave her a scrip for. Lord I detest pill poppers and their indignant self righteousness because they went doc shopping until they find someone willing, so now its legal.

As for cheating, the only way I could see marijuana giving one team an edge over the other is if the sport is competitive chili dog eating.

Just to make sure that I get this straight, you are mad at "cheating and covering up breaking the law" by a college kid smoking marijuana, yet the person in your avatar did the exact same thing, admittedly, while in college and he is the POTUS who you unequivocally support for re-election. I marvel at that reasoning even more.

Surely you aren't that naive.

And honestly, who cares if TCU's QB likes to get high? Raiding the fridge isn't gonna make him any better at football. As the great Bobby Bowden once said, "If you don't want your boys to be caught with drugs, don't drug-test them." If you test everyone, you're not gonna like the results.

Trevone Boykin, true freshman, looks to step in for Pachall after DUI arrest this morning.

An obvious Longhorns ploy to discredit TCU. It has begun...again

This kid is amazing....and not in a good way. Just how many chances does this guy think he deserves? Time for this kid to grow up and take some personal responsibility for his own actions and step away from football until he can do so. This will tell everyone a good deal about TCU and its coaching staff and administration. Stand by...should be interesting.

      A former Texas Christian University wide receiver filed a lawsuit against the school and the Big 12 Conference, citing a pattern of abuse and harassment, according to a published report Thursday.

      Kolby Listenbee, who was hurt during his senior season in 2015, alleged that Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson and members of his staff "continuously pressured, humiliated, and harassed" him to return from the injury, the Star-Telegram of Fort Worth reported.

      A sixth-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2016, Listenbee claimed the harassment began shortly after his injury was diagnosed. In the suit, he said coaches wanted him back on the field quickly due to "their quest for a national football championship."

      There is no good time to bag on the fans if you are the head coach of a football team that just finished .500, with a losing record in the Big 12. It helps, though, when you have your own statue.
      Nonetheless, Gary Patterson selected just that time to charge forward and politely rip the thousands who wisely elected not to show up in the cold and the rain for TCU’s snore blowout home loss on Saturday to Kansas State.
      But, good news, TCU fans — the Horned Frogs are going to the Liberty Bowl to play Georgia. That should inspire them.
      After the loss to K-State, GP was understandably disgusted with a crowd that did not show up from start to finish ... kinda like his team.
      The announced attendance was the laughably inflated 42,746. Call it a major upset if 20,000 showed at Amon G. Carter Stadium on Saturday. And those people deserve medals for sitting in that muck to watch that boring game.
      “I was happy with the student section that was here. I wasn’t happy with the rest of it. Didn’t finish the deal. When we win championships we want TCU to be along but rain or shine, everybody’s got to be there. You’re all in or all out,” GP said. “I promise you, if we were in Manhattan, Kansas it would have been packed.”
      Start with the reality that there is less than absolutely nothing to do in Manhattan, Kan., and move to the fact that TCU is a private school with an enrollment of 10,000 located in a major metropolitan area.
      This transparent shot from the head coach at TCU fans is long overdue. It is also pointless. This is one hill not even GP can conquer.
      This is simply a numbers game. While the support has grown exponentially for TCU athletics, and specifically TCU football, since the school was dumped during the original creation of the Big 12, there are not enough alums and T-shirt fans to create a demand to consistently fill a 45,000-seat stadium. Especially when the team is average or bad.
      TCU attendance is the ultimate “It is what it is.”
