Marijuana. Ecstasy. Cocaine. Check, check, and check for TCU's starting quarterback Casey Patchall.

Earlier this year, Patchall failed a drug test and admitted his marijuana use to the police. Since that revelation, he has undergone drug and alcohol rehabilitation, in a program that was mandated by the university.

What is very surprising, however, is that TCU will not punish Patchall in any way, shape, or form, according to ESPN. He could still face punishment from head coach Gary Patterson, although that is yet to be decided. Patterson said he has been pleased with Patchall being honest and taking responsibility for his poor decisions.

Four other TCU players, including Patchall's former roommate, tested positive for drugs and were arrested in a drug sting operation earlier this year. All four were dismissed from the team.
