Holy crap that is exactly what I was thinking. Chase Daniel anyone?
So I know that this a much more overarching argument to be had, but does anyone else get frustrated with the lack of accountability within American sports for driving drunk. It seems like the american public is willing to look the other way consistently over this yet it is a major problem. If you or I got caught with a DWI then we would be at risk to losing our jobs. Meanwhile athletes in all sports and in college get caught and we debate whether or not they should sit out a few plays. Sorry to rant but I think that it is a major issue.
I thought I heard their backup QB was going to be a RB to fill the holes. Not sure how that is going to work now. They have some serious issues going on with their players getting arrested.
*edit* here it is TCU backup Trevone Boykin might provide depth at running back | Dallas-Fort Worth Sports News...
From that link above:
Pachal had lived in the same house with former TCU quarterback Tanner Brock, who was among several players arrested last February for marijuana possession during a campus-wide drug bust.
After those arrests, in an interview with officers, Pachall admitted to drug use but was not arrested at that time. TCU later confirmed Pachall had failed a team drug test on Feb. 1, but was allowed to stay on the team.
If you'd like to monitor the meltdown:

Ya he failed a drug test and miraculously was the only one that remained on the team after that failed test.
Wow.... softening up.. better than the Weed, cocaine and ecstasy he has done before.Report: TCU QB Casey Pachall told police he failed drug test
"Due to Casey being a student-athlete at TCU, I asked if they receive any drug test," the report read. "Casey replied they do and that he failed their most recent one, which was right after he had smoked marijuana last. Casey stated that he smoked marijuana maybe a day or two prior to the test."
The report said Pachall also stated that he used cocaine and ecstasy in the previous year but said, "Both were just a one-time thing and (he) hasn't done either since."
What does the C stand for in TCU again? Criminal?
Joe Cain anyone?
