Casey Pachall disenrolls from TCU but can return

Casey-Pachall-TCUFORT WORTH, Texas - Gary Patterson walked in to his weekly media luncheon press conference that featured an unusually large gathering and joked, "Must be a big ball game."

Playing Baylor is, but to the issue of QB Casey Pachall.

"No questions about the game? Since this is what you came for ... first off, a lot of thought," Patterson said. "This is what is going to happen. After a very long conversation with Casey and his parents, the chancellor ..."

Patterson said that Casey Pachall has dis-enrolled from TCU. Pachall is going to go an in-patient care facility. Patterson said he may be there already. Patterson said those programs last between 30 to 60 days.

Pachall had been indefinitely suspended since he had a DWI last week. The door is open for Pachall to return in the spring, to continue his course work at school and play for the Frogs.

"I don't think (suspending Pachall) one game or three games would have made any difference," GP said. "You have to change a kid's life. For us this was the best decision, for both of us. We both get a chance to heal. We are going to still try to win games; we won them before we had Casey Pachall as quarterback.
