TV show description:
This comedy series takes place at the fictional Blue Mountain State university and its football team, The Mountain Goats.
Coach Marty Daniels (Ed Marinaro) is a six-time national champion football coach from New Jersey, and is a pillar of the Bms community. Formerly a running back for the Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys, he dates his sex-crazed ex-wife, Debra (Denise Richards).
The comedy series revolves around the on and off-field antics of Pennsylvania college football powerhouse, Blue Mountain State. Coach Daniels has his hands full with the hijynx of his wife (Denise Richards) and students like team captain Thad (Alan Ritchson), quarterback Alex (Darin Brooks), and team mascot Sammy (Chris Romano).

"Blue Mountain State," which aired its series finale in November, shot in Montreal and followed the often crude hijinks of a Pennsylvania college football team led by Thad (Alan Ritchson), Alex (Darin Brooks), and Sammy (Chris Romano). Denise Richards also starred as the wife of Coach Daniels (Ed Marinaro). The actors have now been released from their contracts.
The series aired for three 13-episode seasons on Spike, experiencing significant audience growth in its second season and dipping to about 900,000 viewers in Season 3. When Spike passed on renewing the series for Season 4, Lionsgate considered shopping it elsewhere, but recently notified cast and crew that it would not be revived.
