Some theories have provided pertinent information about binge drinking and this has been identified as the number one threat to campus life (Wheeler, 2009). The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) National Advisory Council defines this kind of drinking as, a pattern of drinking alcohol that brings blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to 0.08 gram percent or above (National Institute of Alcohol and Abuse, 2004, 357).

The participants of this research were alumni, fans, and students of the Midwest universities that were majority Caucasian (91% n = 486), male (64% n =345), with a mean age of 28 (SD = 12.81), there were 599 participants completed the assessment, therefore generated a response rate of 89% (Glassman, Braun, Reindl, & Whewell, 2010). There were only large universities used in this research study that are a part of the Division I sports programs: Division I sports programs have been proven by anecdotal evidence have more excessive drinking than any other universities.
