Spike TV recently decided to bring its viewers a smart, social drama focusing on young men and their lives, loves and losses in the hallowed halls of their first university It focuses on three freshmen from three very different backgrounds who find a common bond in having to deal with the Wacky Fratboy Hijinx of BMS: Alex Moran played by Darin Brooks is a second-string QB who enjoys all of the perks of being on the football team with less pain and suffering.
Sammy Cacciatore Chris Romano, a. Together, they find themselves enjoying the constant boozing, partying and sexing while dealing with other staples of college life. Staples like a transgender prostitute, a pocket pussy, drugs, strip clubs, studying for midterms and more.
If you're looking for a big-honkin' caricature of college life, this might be the show. Season Two introduces some more named characters into the cast, like Radon Randell, the freshman QB from Detroit who admits he used to be in prison and quickly becomes the Goats' new starter.
In , the show was not renewed for a fourth season. However, in , the show's cast and creative team started a Kickstarter fund in order to make a movie to serve as the Grand Finale , which was released online on February 2, This show provides examples of All Gays Are Promiscuous: Most of the women onscreen are only too happy to make out with the nearest girl, run around in nothing but panties and a bra, and get in the pants of the star football players and coaches, regardless of whether or not they already have a partner.
Thad's video tribute to the life of Coach Daniels, where he plays all the characters including Daniels at 5 years old and Daniels' mother, an Italian butter churner. I was born in New Jersey and my mother was a secretary.
Back for the Finale: Craig and Radon both return for the movie. In "Piss Test," Sammy decides that because people treat him better as the BMS mascot than as himself, he would wear the costume the whole time. However, near the end of the episode, the costume became so grotesque from overuse that no one wanted to be near him anymore. Harmon, as confirmed in "Dic Pics". Many times throughout the show, especially during beer pong. Radon in "Nerds," though he is not actually one himself.
Thad in season three when he is suspended from the team. Thad started off as nothing more than the arrogant team captain who acts as an antagonist to Alex, Craig, and Sammy. He quickly became the most popular character on the show and by season two he became the most focused character aside from Alex. Alex is very much this: Alex invokes this in order to get Thad to keep quiet about Alex banging Coach Daniel's ex-wife.
However, Thad becomes confused since he considers both Alex and Daniels his bros. Sammy and Mary Jo have shades of this. Sometimes, despite Alex's best efforts to stay off the field, the universe conspires to make him start at QB during crucial games. However, BMS, their conference, and all the teams they play are fictional. Thad after he received a concussion in Season 3.
Cold Turkeys Are Everywhere: Sammy tries to avoid getting a boner in "Midterms" after an incident with a razor , so as karma would have it, the girls start actively teasing him, which only makes the situation worse.
The majority of the Goats in "Piss Test" initially try this to pass an upcoming drug test instead of the painful-looking "oil change" method that Thad advocates.
They can't even last one day. The entire team in "Born Again" tries to go celibate under their coach's orders. Unfortunately, the Goats end up destroying a church's volunteer team by playing full-contact in a touch football game for charity. Alex, who is from Wyoming, averts this trope. The Goats are on the receiving end of one of these in the national championship game against Blackwell in season 3, due to the NCAA banning Coach Daniels and most of the team's starters from participating because of rules violations.
Dean Simon can apply, because although the football team does bring in a lot of recognition for Blue Mountain State, they also bring a lot of negative publicity and destruction to the school as an academic institution. Alex and sometimes Mary Jo, who usually are able to snark at Sammy or Thad depending on the situation.
Thad is one of the typical Jerk Jock with Testosterone Poisoning. His actions and behavior are not that much out of the ordinary for the character type, but Thad pushes it further and further to the point where early on you can tell that he's dangerously insane. Literally the entire team, to the point where some are borderline illiterate. Even Alex, probably the smartest, is more of a Guile Hero and pretty Book Dumb although it's implied that this is more out of laziness than any actual stupidity.
Both Alex and Thad have one. Alex's is "Couch" because the girl to whom he lost his virginity spread the rumor that he had sex with the couch instead. Thad's is Thad because he had a lisp when he was a child and so said "I'm really sad" as "I'm really thad".
His actual name is Kevin. Read the description again if you need more details. Thad, depending on your interpretation. Occurs of a lot but as of Season Three this seems to be Mary Jo's entire m. The only ones that appear in the show are Type 1. Frequent with Thad, especially in some of his more sadistic moments. Forcing the freshmen to shave each other while he watches, running a race in jockstraps with Oreo's clenched in their buttocks, threatening Alex in bed in the middle of the night, the "oil change" Plus the entire "Dic Pics" episode.
The list is extensive, and the trope is often played for laughs. Thad and later Alex both do a line off the stomach of a co-ed. Blackwell's players tell the media that their win against a BMS team with most of the starters and coaches suspended should not be questioned because they played by the NCAA's rules, unlike BMS. I Call Him Mr Happy: Coach Daniels named his penis Ernicio.
His ex-wife named her vagina Michelle Branch. I Have Your Mother: In "Midterms," Alex offers not to spread video of the professor's mother having sex with some members of the football team in exchange for a C grade. Denise claims that she is a virgin, moments after Craig saw a video of her having sex with another guy. Craig in "The Legend of the Golden Arm. Not rabies vaccine, but actual rabies! Thad, calling pronouncing 'sluts' as 'sloots' instead.
It Tastes Like Feet: The football players describe Thad's pocket pussy like this, saying it feels like banging a waterfall and a chocolate souffle. When one player describes it as like having sex with a silk bag full of puppy ears, Craig asks how he could possibly know what that feels like. You'd have an easier time trying to locate someone on the show that ISN'T one. The only remotely likeable current character is Alex, who while having somewhat of a sleazy vibe, does tend to show he has a heart and common sense on occasion.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While the rest of the team treat their nerds rather poorly, Radon is ecstatic to meet his and treats him really well, drinking with him and letting him sleep it off in his bed. Craig in the first season seems to be the most sensitive member of the team. While everyone else enjoys getting drunk often and having sex with random girls, Craig is usually the one who stays out of trouble and remains loyal to his girlfriend.
Until he finds out that Denise was cheating on him. The karma that BMS has been building up over three seasons ends up being so heavy on the negative end, they lose the national championship game in the third season.
Like a Son to Me: The premise of "Ransom," where a creepy obsessive fan tries to offer one of his daughters to Alex in hopes that they'll produce a football-playing grandson because all his children were girls.
The relationship Thad seems to have with coach Marty. Or at least that's what Thad likes to think. Pretty much the way coach Marty relates to the entire team. He doesn't really seem to have anyone else to care for since his son is a selfish jerk. Thad always tries to shift the blame when his antics cause problems. Ironically, he accuses Alex of having this problem when the latter rightfully points out how their predicament is his fault and nicknames Alex "Mr.
Whether it's a NCAA-sanctioned drug test or even simple homework, most of the Goats players will do whatever they can to avoid honest work. Of Course I'm Not a Virgin: Denise, after Craig stumbles upon a sex tape she made.
Alex and Craig switch off on this trope depending on the episode. Though the rival Overland University team wears black and kidnaps their goat as a prank, they seem relatively benign compared to the things the designated protagonists do to their opponents, let alone each other. Played straight with Blackwell. A Party, Also Known as an Orgy: Every single Goathouse party. While trapped in the Goat House by a bunch of rioters who want to kill Sammy he tries to convince the cheerleading team to sleep with him.
The head cheerleader says that if they do it, it would only be out of pity and he says he wouldn't have it any other way. Alex, to the point where he actually fights to keep his second-string job when he is in danger of becoming the starter "Rivalry Weekend" or dropping to third-string "There's Only One Second Best".
