Georgia Southern nose tackle Gavin Adcock, the brains behind Saturday’s Stone Cold beer chug on top of a moving bus carrying the football team to its game against Louisiana-Lafayette, has been suspended indefinitely from the team, the school announced Monday.
Adcock, the mullet-sporting aspiring country music singer, is seen on video catching a beer thrown by a Georgia Southern fan and doing what a fifth-year senior does to a beer — he crushed it. Straight inhaled it.

It’s unclear if athletic director Jared Benko, who fired head football coach Chad Lunsford after Saturday’s loss, is in the mood to reinstate a beer-chugging senior. Adcock’s player profile page is still active.
In a Monday press conference, Benko said the new head coach will be “highly disciplined, blue collar and tough.”
In other words, at a school that prides itself as being one of — if not the biggest — parties in college football, there appears to be a new sheriff coming to town and it doesn’t seem like Stone Cold chugs on top of school buses will be a thing moving forward.
Erk I’m sorry for this foolery, excuse me but what the fuck is this? Who singing the valley song? This man is swag surfing the bus and get a stone cold Steve hammer beer pass and chugged it flawlessly. Before the football game. Wow. pic.twitter.com/yoeBG6oc6X

As for Adcock’s future, he has his breakout video and a full Sun Belt career behind him. He shouldn’t have trouble headlining Statesboro bars and the coastal Georgia beach bars in the very near future.
