Erk, I’m sorry for this nonsense, excuse me, but what is this? Who sings the song of the valley? This man is surfing the bus and getting a pass for Steve’s hammer beer and drank it perfectly. Before the football match. Wow. pic.twitter.com/yoeBG6oc6X

The video shows Adcock standing on top of the moving bus as he walks past a crowd of fans. After grabbing a can tossed by someone into the crowd, he drinks the beer as people clap below.
According to the university newspaper The George-Anne, university athletic director Jared Benko addressed the incident on Monday. He reportedly said: “Obviously today is Monday and I just saw the video yesterday, so we are working on the proper processes and steps.”
Former Georgia Southern University player William Banks criticized the young player’s actions on Twitter:
There is a time and place to party (after typing a ** for 4 quarters). Before a game on top of our bus, ain’t the boss
