Drown your sorrows for free, UCF fans.
Well, you better do it quickly. If your team wins a game, the drowning of the sorrows will come with a price tag. So enjoy the free beer while you can.
The Basement, a bar in Orlando, is offering free beer during UCF games until the Knights get into the win column. UCF is 0-4 so far and has lost to Florida International, Stanford, Furman and South Carolina. Two of those wins seem understandable. The other two are a bit questionable.
So you can understand why UCF fans would be a bit depressed. The school beat Baylor in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl. And now it's got a loss to an FCS school.
According to ESPN, the free beer will be your typical American mass-market beers and the special will go from kickoff until the end of the game.
"We have taken great pride in the team and we very much consider ourselves a UCF bar, as we're operated and staffed by graduates and even some current students," marketing director Jake Whitacre told ESPN. He also told the site the bar was a third full for the South Carolina game. UCF took an early lead against the Gamecocks before loss No. 4.
UCF plays Tulane on Saturday in its first American Athletic Conference game of the season. Bo Schneider is expected to start at quarterback following a hand injury that Justin Holman suffered in the Stanford game. Running back William Stanback, an all-AAC selection in 2014, was dismissed a week ago for a violation of team rules.
