Portland State football coach Bruce Barnum is a man of his word. Recruits should recognize this when deciding whether to play for him.

Last week the coach went on a radio show in Oregon and said he would buy a beer for everyone who came out to the team’s game against Western Oregon last Saturday.

On Tuesday, Barnum posted the tab from Barny’s Beer Garden after the Vikings’ 21-17 victory.

It was a hefty one, to say the least.

The tune was 1,260 Coors Lights and 786 Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA.

The bill squeezed nearly $15,000 — $14,448 to be precise — out of the coach’s wallet.

A toast to Coach Barnum for making good on his boast.
