First TCU game since Quarterback's arrest

Posted: Updated:

TCU had everything going for them going into the big 12 opener against Iowa State.  The frogs, 4 and 0 and ranked 15th in the nation.


Couple that with the support of scores of fans and you've got everything you could possibly ask for - well almost everything.


Conspicuously missing from Amon Carter Stadium, their star quarterback, Casey Pachall, the 21 year old junior suspended indefinitely following a DWI arrest and TCU fans not at all happy about it.


Alan Kougl told us that they should just kick him off the team.


TCU alum Steven Latham says he's disappointed by Pachall's actions.  He pointed out that the team has two other quarterbacks, but neither of them in any way ready for this.


This was the first game since Pachall's arrest. He was pulled over for running a stop sign, near the TCU campus, early Thursday morning.  He was in his pickup, and hit a curb and Fort Worth police say he failed a field sobriety test.


TCU alum Aaron Benton says he should be using better judgment and should not have even been in that situation - probably not the smartest thing to do.


While everyone agrees that the quarterback needs help, few believe he should remain on the team.  Pachall's arrest comes after he failed a drug test in February and admitted to police he had smoked marijuana.


No one knows for sure what the future holds for Pachall - coach Gary Patterson says it's not about the football season but about a person who obviously needs help.
