The link for the story at the Star Telegram is broken but marijuana, pills and weapons were found when a bunch of folks from Texas Christian University were arrested today in a huge drug bust that the school said was unprecedented.

The list of the those arrested will be posted later today but I heard it on the radio and it is not really online at this time.  Is it because more blacks and browns have been admitted to TCU to people the various teams? 

Universities have always have problems with drug selling on campus.  Why is this one different? Maybe professors were involved too.  No, we found out that it was football players from their stellar team.

I know TCU well because I’ve taken grad courses there and I ride by bike by there all summer because I live nearby.  The demographics have changed over the past 10 years I know that much.  More later
