08:58 AM ET 08.04 | TCU quarterback Casey Pachall failed a student-athlete drug test on Feb 1. and TCU Athletics knew about Pachall's test results, according to a statement from head football coach Gary Patterson. Patterson released the following statement on Friday evening after TCU 360 reported the story earlier in the day: "We were aware of Casey testing positive on Feb. 1. I have always taken a very strong stand for student-athlete health and welfare. We have policies and educational programs in place to help guide our student-athletes. We are committed to helping them make healthy choices and have moved forward. We have had 25 drug tests in the last 18 months, including one by the NCAA at the Rose Bowl. We've had six drug tests since February." Pachall told police in an interview on Feb. 15 that he had failed a recent student-athlete drug test. The police came to Pachall's residence looking for his roommate, TCU football player Tanner Brock, who admittedly sold marijuana to an undercover police officer.

Doesn't the law prevent schools from releasing the results of these tests? That being said, it doesn't give them a pass from having to deal properly with it. Just don't think they can publicize who's was positive. I could be wrong though.

That way they can tax it too, and they will, heavy.

It'll still be cheaper than a pack of smokes in New York.

From what I got reading the article, the test results weren't released...only the police report where he told them he tested positive on the latest test administered by TCU.

[i]In a supplement that is part of the Feb. 15 police report, an officer wrote of details of his interview with Pachall on the night that Brock was arrested at the Fort Worth house they shared.

When the officer asked Pachall if he had ever used narcotics, the report said the player replied that he had, and had smoked marijuana as recently as a week or two prior to that night.

"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."[i/]

And he's a fool for having done so....he should have kept his mouth shut.

Much as I and everyone talks $@!&* on lawyers, this kid could have really used one.
No lawyer would have let him say such things to the man.
