First of all, let's disregard all this nonsense of a Duke upset or a Duke challenging of our defense. I'm not entertaining it for one micro-second.
Second, let's move on to what I call the Surrender Bowl: Auburn v. Clemson. A battle of great teams (in the early 80s), that now come into this matchup undefeated, unbeaten (and untested). We know one thing with these newbie comers to the Homecoming Circuit....neither can play defense.
France couldn't play defense either.
In the spirit of celebrating high school offenses, dubious coaching, and defensive weaknesses splayed across our screens like a Hustler centerfold, let's honor them I say.
So: The rules this week are very simple.
-For every missed tackle, you must take one (small) drink.
-Ditto blown coverage
-One small drink per score of any variety
-One small drink per special teams f* up, of any variety
-Finish whole beverage if anyone, on either team, is labeled a "dark horse" or other variant of Heism@n candidate
-Upon the game's completion, pour half of remaining beverage on the ground for the soon-to-be-departed Homie Coach; consume other half with the certain knowledge that the other will be gone in another year.
