11. Cops


With CMU's football season off to a exciting start there will undoubtedly be more cops than necessary policing the tailgate. Early reports indicate an expected cop to student ratio of 2-1. While they may seem unfriendly or angry they are known to be some of the best beer pong players in the state so be sure to use your celeb shot wisely.

6. Townies Shagging Cans

Where do the come from? Nobody knows but every drinking holiday they come from all over the area to pick up beer cans as a way of life. Weird or a way of life; we're not sure but they seem to enjoy it and isn't that all the matters?

5. Western Kids that Can't Hang

4. Students Chugging the Booze They Can't Bring into the Game

No backpacks allowed in the game mean a serious conflict. Go in the game and support the Chippewas while ditching your extra booze or skip the game and save the booze. Of course there is always option number 3 which requires some serious chugging but you learned that freshmen year didn't you?

3. Our Badass Coach

The GOAT, our savior or just Coach Bono. He beat cancer, he helped the Chips beat a ranked team for the first time since 1991, and now he's ready to beat the Broncos. This man knows how to FIRE UP!

2. Heisman Candidate Cooper Rush

A starter for most of his four years at QB, Cooper Rush has an opportunity to rewrite the CMU record books and is off to a good start to do it. In the midst of chasing down Dan Lefevour for countless records, Cooper has been leading the Chips to a great start to the season. After beating Oklahoma State in a game for the ages, Cooper looks to lead the Chippewas to a MAC title this year.
