Official Beverage


The official beverage of tha NCAA Tradition is Jack and Coke.  This occurred when the drink was introduced to John by Leo at the first trip in 1995.  Leo recommended it and John said “Hey, that’s pretty good!”, the rest is history.

In 2000, we visited the distillery while on our Nashville trip which cemented our support for  the  official beverage of the NCAA Tradition.

All four consistently concurrent members are now all Tennesee Squires as well.


The last Tennessee Squire is crowned!  January 23, 2008

Congratulations to Dave C for being nominated and accepted into the Jack Daniels Tennessee Squire Association.  Dave now joins his fellow squires Leo P, the other Dave C and John K on the first trip to feature 100% Tennessee Squires.

Again, Dave’s wife was very proud of her new squire.

  • I met you guys last year in Chicago during the tour of wrigley field. I told you that my buddies and I have also been going to the tourney for years and this year we’re headed to Phoenix for the sweet sixteen. Next year, we’re also planning to go to Austin. This is my 14th year traveling to the tourney
    and one guy in our group has a few more years on me. Take care. John Lopez

  • Great to hear from you, had a great time in Portland this year and I am sure you will have a lot to do in Phoenix, it is another great town.
