The series is a takeoff of National Lampoon's Animal House and Van Wilder focusing on the football-centric university, Blue Mountain State, and its rather awkward team "The Goats." It covers topics of college life, including football, scoring with women, drinking binges, wild partying, and hazing.
* Alex Moran (Darin Brooks): A freshman second-string quarterback for the Blue Mountain State team and the first 10,000 yard passer in Wyoming high school history. Unlike the rest of the characters, Alex does not see college football as a stepping stone for the NFL and is content to spend his days as a back-up player and a life as an "Average Joe" once he graduates college. Instead, he is dedicated to having as much fun as humanly possible while in college, which includes getting drunk and having sex. He is from Cheyenne, Wyoming.
* Sammy Cacciatore (Chris Romano): The team mascot (Mounty, The Mountain Goat Mascot) and Alex's roommate. Is constantly searching for girls and excuses to get drunk, with his drinking often leading him into misadventure. Like Alex, he grew up in Wyoming.
* Thad Castle (Alan Ritchson): A junior linebacker/team captain from Connecticut. Despite his status as a two time consensus All-American and team record holder for most tackles in a game (a game which he was subsequently ejected from for calling referees "butt faces"), Thad is largely hated by his teammates for his bullying and high strung antics when things do not go his way. Has a father who died while in the military, stationed in Bosnia and has an attractive half-sister of which he is overly protective. He is also heavily prone to engage in excessive homoerotic behavior, especially in the hazing rituals of freshman players.Read more ›
