That looks awesome!  Backyard football is the best November activity, bar none.  Once you have that Thanksgiving dinner... then it's on to sliding yourself down a steep incline on a small piece of plastic at high speeds thanks to your increased mass. 

I have a question for those more "in the know" than myself: do recruits get taken around campus on gameday to see how enthusiastic the students are for the games or do they follow the players for their gameday rituals?  I can only imagine being a high school junior and seeing these types of shennanigans!

Haha!  Of course I remember that Alabama guy, but I'm real... for real!  My name's Stephen and thanks for the welcome, I always like to hear new voices on here anyways, sometimes it can get a little musty with re-articulated points used over and over again, so I thought I could add my opinions and knowledge to the mix.

Where to begin. This was just great from start to finish. I'm not sure who Pat is but if he has more videos with intoxicated students chugging Five O'Clock Vodka, and girls answering questions they weren't asked, then count this guy as a fan!

I've had similar thoughts, though maybe not as extreme.  I've tried to readjust my perception based on the amount of support I've read on here in favor of his shtick.  I haven't been able to change my initial thoughts.  Mind remains open, but as of yet I am unconvinced .  I was beginning to come around until I saw the Madison clip.  The Daquan hazing the campus tours was quite a turnoff.

Where are all the jackholes who complain about the coeds not studying enough and drinking too much? The best part of these videos are reading the complaints from the dbags bitching about how these videos are a terrible respresentation of the students at UofM. Keep in mind, this is one day out of six. This does not happen every day. Most of these students do go on to  have succesful careers. Not everyone has to be miserable all of their lives. Having fun every once in a while does not limit your ability to get good grades. In fact, it may help relieve stress and promote productivity.

Pat, you are a genius and are bound for a big break. Keep up the good work. I appreciate your effort and your humor.

That did not take long. In the amount of time it took to write a response two people already started bitching. I get it, to each their own. I do not understand if people are too dumb to realize the humor, or if they just like to complain? The Daquan skit is a joke. It is not real!! Embrace it, or dont watch it. There is nothing to have an open mind about. You either get it and like it, or you dont. If you have not liked it, you will not and should stop complaining about it. If you have not noticed, these are a regular part of the videos.

Appreciate the Hoodie!  Being someone who went to school at U of M a long, long time ago, I never would have heard Hoodie without your influence.  My kids and I enjoy No Interruption in particular.

I thought you said last year that you were done with Pre-Gaming with Pat?  I wanted to battle rap DQ but I moved to China because that dream was lost.  Maybe I'll battle DQ as a guest on your late night talk show when I move back in three years. (I know you don't have that show yet but I'm confident in you!)

Generally, I love these videos. It does seem they are becoming a little formulaic, however. Da'Quan and that other dude always make an appearance, and the focus is almost exclusively on frats. I'm sure there is plenty of great drunk people material beyond the frats. Maybe mix in the non pre-game atmosphere at a co-op, or track down some wasted alums at a tailgate. I do recognize frat boys and girls, as the drunkest and unintentionally funniest folks on campus, will always be part of the mix. Keep it up!

Maybe Da'Quan could do his own pregame show instead of being interviewed by Pat. I'm not raising this because I find his shtick particularly offfensive--I just think the kid isn't very good at ad-libbing it. For example, the video of Da'Quan accosting kids on campus was actually pretty funny. Let Da'Quan set his own agenda and he shines.

Speaking as an old Phi Delt, who played in the Mud Bowl in 79, 80 and 81, it is not the Mud Bowl without Phi Delta Theta.  If the SAE's had any honor, they would restore the Mud Bowl to its true rivalry, even though that would result in them losing virtually every year.
