Tomorrow might as well be called “National Alcohol Day” instead of New Year’s Eve. To get you prepared, my friends and I have assembled a drinking game to keep you occupied during the College Football Playoff Games. With the Orange Bowl (Oklahoma/Clemson) at 4:00 and the Cotton Bowl (Michigan State/Alabama) following at 8:00, we know very well this game should be used strictly for pregaming purposes. We’ll take it easy on you, after all, you’ve gotta make it to midnight.
Disclaimer: You know how this goes. Don’t be a total idiot with your alcohol, and stay away from the wheel after enjoying your beverages.
— Drink whenever the phrase “Clemsoning” is used.
— Drink every time a replay of Dabo Swinney dancing is shown.
— Finish your drink if they mention Stoops’ brothers, especially Mark.
— Two drinks whenever you see the Clemson tombstone from the last time they played Oklahoma in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
— Drink if Herbstreit mentions Ohio State.
— Drink anytime “Heisman” is mentioned or shown on screen with Derrick Henry.
— Chug if Lane Kiffin and Nick Saban get in a yelling match on the sidelines.
— Drink whenever they show a quarterback’s hot girlfriend/wife or Mom.
— Drink whenever they show the Michigan State kicker’s post-Ohio State celebration.
— Anytime a mascot is doing something strange (more than just cheering with the cheerleaders), drink.
— Drink every time Mack Brown brings up the Glory Days. Finish your drink if it involves his National Championship season, because you have no right Mack. Vince Young did it all, you were a spectator, just like the rest of us.
— Finish your drink anytime Mark May does something Vine-worthy (you know it when you see it).
— Chug for every bad targeting call (if you’re wondering whether it’s a bad call or not, they all are).
Drink every time you see the Dr. Pepper man, Larry Culpepper Sorry, but if this rule applies you won’t make it through the first half.
