TCU Drug Test Turned Up 5 Users, Not 82, According To Report

In the affidavits for the TCU football players arrested in the campus-wide investigation of drug-dealing, the arrested players said that anywhere from 60-82 members of the football team would fail the surprise drug test the Horned Frogs coaching staff gave on National Signing Day.

However, if the latest reports out of Fort Worth are accurate, it appears their math may have been a little off:

It's unclear whether any of the four players that were arrested -- Tanner Brock, D.J. Yendrey, Devin Johnson and Ty Horn -- tested positive, but Brock indicated he had failed his in a conversation with an undercover officer.

While as many as 16 players having at least trace amounts of marijuana in their system sounds bad, when put into the context of drug use on a university-wide level, it's not all that surprising:

If 16 out of 85 scholarship players were regularly using marijuana, that would still put the TCU football team at 18.8%, three points below the national average.
