The Texas Longhorns are not the first team to have players who try to pull the old switcheroo when it comes to providing a urine sample, but they have by no means perfected it. Pitcher Corey Knebel reportedly learned the risks involved with such funny business on Friday. According to the Austin American-Statesman, Knebel was suspended for the team’s weekend series against Kansas State for a violation involving a drug test. A source reportedly told the paper that Knebel was trying to help out a teammate by providing him with a urine sample so he could pass a drug test. The only problem with that is that Knebel takes Adderall to treat his ADHD, which resulted in a failed test. It is not known which teammate Knebel provided the urine for. Sophomore pitcher Cameron Cox was also suspended indefinitely for what a team spokesman called “a violation of an unspecified team rule,” but it is not clear if Cox’s suspension is directly related to Knebel’s. Adderall is on the NCAA’s list of banned substances. However, Knebel is permitted to take it because he has a prescription. The teammate who failed the drug test using Knebel’s urine does not have a prescription for Adderall, which eventually forced him to admit that he had taken the urine from Knebel. This isn’t exactly rocket science. If you’re going to get clean urine from a teammate in an attempt to pass a drug test, make sure it’s clean urine. A prescription doesn’t remove the substance from a person’s urine, it simply allows it to be there. H/T The Big Lead
