Four football players among those arrested at TCU

More from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Quote:
The four players arrested are linebacker Tanner Brock; defensive lineman D.J. Yendry; offensive tackle Tyler Horn; and cornerback Devin Johnson, according to documents released Wednesday morning.


Quote:
Last year, TCU was lauded in a "Sports Illustrated" article as the only top 25 team in the nation in 2010 with no players on its roster with criminal records.

How embarassing is the fact that zero top 25 teams have a roster without a convicted criminals?

Police say that four players..... sold marijuana to students and football players. They have been kicked off the team.

.... documents say that coach Gary Patterson sprung a surprise drug test on the football team on Feb. 1, National Signing Day, and that Brock later told an undercover officer that there "would be about 60 people being screwed" as a result of the test. Sources said Patterson ordered the drug test after a prize recruit told him that he would not attend TCU because of drug use by players.

Brock, a junior from Copperas Cove who led the team in tackles during the Frogs' 13-0 Rose Bowl season in 2010, was sidelined after the season opener at Baylor with an ankle injury.

Yendrey, a defensive tackle from Edna High School, started 18 games the last two seasons, including the Poinsettia Bowl Dec. 21.

Johnson, from Moore High School in Oklahoma, had eight career starts, including the bowl game. Yendrey and Johnson would have been seniors next season.

Horn, from McGregor, would have been a junior. He started against SMU in 2011 and had played in 11 games, including the Poinsettia Bowl.

What a joke.

After the osu scandal, the state legislature should make all state schools do it.
