This is not the way TCU wanted its preseason to begin. Less than a week into fall camp, the Horned Frogs are already down two starters:
Linebacker Joel Hasley, who started 10 games as a walk-on in 2012, has left the Horned Frogs, the school announced Monday. TCU coach Gary Patterson said in a statement that Hasley "decided it was time to move on from football."
"I'd like to thank Joel for everything he's done for TCU and his commitment to our program," Patterson said. "We will miss him and wish him the best."
Hasley is the second projected starter to leave the program since the team reported for camp last week. Starting right tackle Tayo Fabuluje left TCU for "personal reasons," the school revealed Thursday.

TCU will likely to turn to either Jonathan Anderson or Paul Dawson to fill Hasley's spot. This a tough start for a program that has a monster opener looming. The Horned Frogs begin the season against LSU on Aug. 31. At least they'll have a few weeks to get somebody else acclimated into a starting role.
