KSR presents: The UK Basketball Drinking Game

 

Does UK basketball have you down? Does Archie Goodwin make your head want to explode? Does Alex Poythress make you yell at your television like a crazy person? Do you find yourself thinking back to New Orleans or dreaming about 18 year old twins? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone.   

You share these feelings with the entire Big Blue Nation and the KSR family. If you are finding games to be all frustration and no fun, have no fear, we here at KSR have  a solution.

KSR College Den Mother Kristen Geil and I took it upon ourselves to come up with a UK Basketball Drinking Game. Our hope is to put more fun into watching this year’s version of the Cats and increase the entertainment level of Matt’s post game show. Gather your friends (because drinking alone is “frowned upon”) and give everyone a couple of rules to keep up with. If you see your rule happen yell “DRINK!”

Put a cooler by the couch and grab a beverage. It’s time to bring the fun back to Kentucky Basketball.

 

THE KSR UK BASKETBALL DRINKING GAME

*Take a drink every time you can hear Cal yelling “GOOOOO!!!!!”

*Take a drink if you can lip read someone cursing.

*Take a drink every time Alex Poythress is taken out of the game. This happens quite often due to fouls, mistakes, or fatigue.

*Take a drink every time we have two or more white guys on the floor.

*Take a drink for an Eli Capilouto, Ellen Calipari, or Ashley Judd sighting.

*Take a drink if anyone takes a charge. Very rare.

*Take a drink if we give up an offensive rebound put back. This happens a lot when Nerlen’s goes for a block and doesn’t get it.

*Take a drink if Mays or Wiltjer miss an open three. It’s up to the discretion of your group to determine if the shot was considered “open.” If you can’t come to a decision, drink. You’re over thinking it.

*Take a drink if Kyle Wiljter scores off the dribble. You’ll have plenty of time to prepare for this drink.

*Take a drink if Julius Mays head fakes.

*Take a drink if Julius Mays does a booty twerk. This is Kristen’s rule. When I asked her what she meant by this she said “You know, when he runs with his butt out or pops it after he scores.” This is a girls only rule. Guys do not drink to a male booty twerk.

*Take a drink if Jimmy Dyke’s says something that rhymes or if he mentions his aircraft.

*Take a drink if the words “Kentucky” & “bubble” are used in the same sentence.

*Take a drink if last year’s team is mentioned.

*Take a drink if next year’s team is mentioned.

*Take a drink if you’re on the live blog and Matt says “We need to get a stop here” or someone asks Mrs. Tyler if “we got this?”

The Archie Rules:

*Take a drink if Archie is fouled and misses one foul shot. If he misses both fouls shots, enjoy another drink.

*Take a drink if Archie gets his shot blocked.

*Take a drink if Archie turns the ball over.

The Nerlen’s Rules:

*Take a drink if Nerlen’s blocks a shot.

*Finish your drink if Nerlen’s picks up his second foul before the 10 minute mark in the first half. Strictly adhere to this rule.

*Finish your drink if Nerlen’s drags his crotch across a defenders head/face.

 

And, finally…

*Take a shot if we win. Everyone enjoys a celebrating wins.

*Take a shot if we lose.  Everyone enjoys forgetting losses.

 

This year’s team is not as good as last year’s team (drink) and it’s not as good as next year’s team will be (drink). They are what they are. Instead of letting them frustrate you, let them intoxicate you. Life will be much more enjoyable. As always, KSR encourages you to drink responsibly.

    The very first one would get you soooo drunk. He yells that every time they get a rebound.

    Dyke’s? Nerlen’s? Are you serious?
    I thought that a basic requirement of writing for a blog site was that you had to have 3rd grade grammar nailed down. No wonder the rest of the country thinks we’re a bunch of hillbilly idiots.

    Take a drink if you think you’re watching Tubbyball again.

    Wow. Pretty tough on our guys here. Would be drunk by halftime. Still, I actually bleed blue, I love our guys and love our team. We can’t always be number 1. Just take it in stride and enjoy the football recruiting process, keep up with women’s basketball, gymnastics, and all the other UK Sports. This mens team is still fun to watch. I got to a game this year and Nerlens is worth the price of admission. I agree, this team seems to lack the ability to make a run. It is what it is. God Bless the Big Blue and the Big Blue Nation! Remember we got Karl Towns coming, James Young, The Harrison Twins, etc, etc!! The future is bright. Except for the 4 yrs of you know what.

    What’s the status on the cuffing situation? Can we rule this out as being the problem or are they still doing too much of it? C’mon KSR update please. Doron?

    Take a drink everytime mays scores a two pointer. You will finish the night with 95% of your beer left cuz all he can do is shoot an open three. Completely one dimensional

    Take a drink every time UK runs a well executed offensive play.

    Take a drink every time an ESPN repeats some stupid point like “guard the right shoulder” or “drive the nail”

    I think we all just need to calm down, I predict another final 4 appearance when cal gets Archie a few more shots per game, just let him have the ball, drive it in the lane among the 7footers circus shot, I am the best player Kentucky has ever seen or ever will see. Anyone like a game of horse? Man, has it really come to this? We have to amuse ourselves with commenting on how bad our team is, can’t believe I just couldn’t wait until the season started, what a disappointment. Just knew Alex poythress wasn’t what he was made out to be. But I really hate it for Nerlens, he has worn his jersey with pride, should take the other bunch of lazy bums and run them out of town. Play all the end of the bench , loosing is loosing, doesn’t matter, as long as you show some heart!

    Best part about this drinking game is you would be passed out or dead before the second half began.

    Why is the doll the student nurse is working on in that Galen College for Nursing add making that face? Does it have to appear in agony in order to create the correct atmosphere?

    Anyone remember when cal came to town? He ran all those guys off that stuck with the program while Billy Clyde tried to kill’em, I think the program sold there souls for a championship. Don’t think we have seen the true cal yet, well the one who never plays anyone that is not a lottery pick anyway. He is going to have trouble this year sending anyone other than nerlens to the NBA . Wait and see how many he dumps to make room for next years recruits. Think most people’s opinion of him are close to right!

    Really tired of seeing stupid sh*t like this on the site. We know our team is struggling, but lets remember they are OUR team.

    I realize this is all in fun, but this is becoming a regular occurrence and it’s not right for us to be criticizing our guys this much.

    “Defending” national champions . . . Hmmmmmm…. One has to make it to the NCAA TOURNEY in order to DEFEND it . . . They are CURRENT NCAA Champs…. Lets see if they can defend it . . . Not looking so good right now . . . RPI keeps dropping especially with weak losses to Baylor and Texas A&M who lost to an even weaker LSU last night . . . Gawd, the SEC is AWFUL!!!

    24*that ten loss season led to a f4. call cal whatever you want as long as we see the f4 and a nc every few years. he’s the hands down best coach in the country

    Take a drink for every minute by minute account of the Bachelor that Flener writes about once a week. Drunk before the end of the post and happier.

    People need to be able to find something to laugh at this season… which I think this post does a great job of. Who cares if apostrophes were misused? Enjoy the posts, or don’t read them. This had me laughing out loud. Also, #39 – you need to get out more, prude.
