Lou’s Pep Talk Alcohol Poisoning Watch: Week 9

Posted by Mike on November 6, 2007

By now, most of you have become familiar with Lou Holtz’s Pep Talk and the drinking game I chose to attach to it. (We have a few new elements to the game-check it out.) However, are you wondering how drunk you would have been if you had tried to play it? Let’s find out.


You don’t even want to KNOW what the Pringles are for.

First up: His second pep talk for Nebraska.

Fan IQ thinks the pep talk was a disaster, but the weirdness is something worth cherishing. But on to the tally.

Right off the bat, I see his loose tie, the talk is for a once-proud program who lost to Oklahoma State in Week 8, and I recognize a left side off-tackle run play to the left of his head. That’s one + one +two +three = seven sips before he even says anything.

“The time to worry is before you place your bet, and not after they spin the wheel.” That’s fortune cookie material. One sip.

“We solved sexism, racism, we’ll solve problems with Nebraska football if enough people care.” That is the kind of analogy and hyperbole that no one could hope to understand but him. Two + three = five sips.

“I’ll always have a future.” Bill Callahan? Future? HA! Two sips.

“If I didn’t show up, who would miss me and why?” Think about that before the next time your mother-in-law tries to show up. Three sips.

“Let’s go make Texas sorry that we showed up today. Let’s go!” That is one mad septogenarian right there. four + one = five sips.

So not counting the lisps (which, I admit, may be too many to keep track of), if you had played the Drinking game in Week 9, you would have taken 23 gulps of beer or 11.5 shots of liquor during Lou’s Pep Talk for Nebraska. If you add to that the Huskers’ close loss to Texas in that game, the number goes to 27/13.5.

    Let me tell you something…you don’t WANT to know, and I DON’T know.

    You know…I’ve read the rules of the game, and I think I understand them–but somehow ‘We solved sexism, racism, we’ll solve the problems of Nebraska football if enough people care’ has got to be worth more than five sips. On the other hand, just hearing stuff like that is probably a good sign to stop drinking altogether…

    Perhaps…the Pep Talk Drinking Game will undergo some tweaking over the course of the season, as the need for adjustments and additions come up.

    few guesses about the pringles: they make her high; it part of the rules to throw something on the drinkers’ face; she has to eat the pringles while drinking.
    any more guesses?

    Edtajchman: it’s precisely the point. The full photo has Roy Squatting on the sidelines like he’s about to take a huge dump, and his assistant coach Steve Robinson is looking on in disgust.

    Mush: According to urban dictionary (the go-to source for understanding random acts of deviance), either the Pringles can and its contents symbolize unspeakable things, or…they have no idea what they’re for either. I’m going to guess the latter.

    okay,….. I don’t really mind considering he is a traitor, he left us (KU) basically even before we played the championship game and lost several years ago.
