Dear Friends and Recent Players,
Welcome to the return of Saturday’s most underrated and over-influenced tradition! With heavy hearts last year we should farewell to College Gameday great Chris Fowler, but Rece Davis was an admirable host who mentioned us three times on air. This season, we’re ready for a return to normalcy…not because Chris has returned, but because Rece is our normalcy now. Kirk, Lee, Desmond, David, Samantha, Yuengling…it’s all here, ladies and gentlemen. If you unfortunately do not reside in the states harboring Yuengling, I bid thy pity. Prepare your livers and consider your children while we avoid both of those and jump in with both feet to the first #CGDG of the season.
– Your friends at College Gameday Drinking Game
Take a drink for each person wearing a black suit coat.
My Friend Game: When “NOT SO FAST” is said for the first time, everyone must start drinking the beverage in their hand. The last person to finish his/her drink then becomes Lee Corso’s friend. The friend must then drink each time Lee Corso says “my friend” for the rest of the day.
Analyst Game: Pick an analyst (Kirk, Lee, or Desmond). Each time your analyst is shown alone on camera or previews a game take a drink….if your analyst leaves the table, the person who takes his place at the table is now your analyst (for better or for worse)
