Did 60 TCU Football Players Really Fail A Drug Test?

Details are beginning to emerge from the alleged drug-dealing ring that resulted in the arrest of four football players at TCU. According to the Associated Press's reading of the affidavits, all of the Horned Frogs' players were drug-tested at a mandatory team meeting on Feb. 1. And based on what two players allegedly said to undercover cops, most of the team may have tested positive:

"Ya, they caught us slipping," Brock told an undercover officer later that day before allegedly selling him $220 worth of marijuana.

He added that he had failed the surprise test "for sure," according to the warrant, then adding that he thought it wouldn't be a problem because there "would be about 60 people screwed."

Horn had looked through the football roster and "said there were only 20 people that would pass the test on the team," Brock said, according to the warrant. And asked about the drug test, Johnson allegedly told an undercover officer: "What can they do, 82 people failed it."

So that's one estimate of 60 players, with another guess of 82. Even after taking the likelihood of hyperbole into account, TCU football is probably staring at a rather large disciplinary problem in the near future. And Tanner Brock, one of the accused players, might want to update that first quotation on his Facebook page:
