Gary Patterson came out with strong statements about how student-athlete drug use “will not be tolerated” by himself or any member of the coaching staff. It looks like he will receive the opportunity to translate those words into action. If the players involved are to be believed, the TCU football drug culture could extend far beyond the four players arrested.
In Tanner Brock’s arrest affidavit, Brock and fellow arrested player Tyler Horn discussed a surprise drug test given to the team on Feb. 1. Brock claimed he was not worried about faiing because there “would be about 60 people being screwed.” Horn purportedly estimated just 20 players on the team would have passed the drug test.
I then began talking to Brock about the drug test, saying that it was “bullshit.” Brock said the staff surprised the team with the test. I asked if Brock was going to be ok. Brock responded, “I failed that bitch for sure.” Brock said that he wasn’t too worried about it and didn’t think it would be a big deal cause there “would be about 60 people being screwed.” Brock said that his friend Ty (Ty Horn) looked through the roster today and said that there were only 20 people that would pass the test on the team.
The Horned Frogs open with a soft matchup against Grambling State at home next year. That may be a blessing for them.
