By my count only 7 are P5 schools.
Nice find. Interesting mix of schools. Some big schools and some small schools; some with not-so-rabid fan bases where beer is likely a bigger draw, and some with rabid fan bases. Although it's interesting to note no Pac12 or SEC teams. SEC isn't surprising because of bible-belt sensibilities, but the lack of Pac12 schools is surprising to me.
But they don't include CU and they consider CSU 'on campus'. How accurate is the rest of it?
I think the reason CU is not included is they are only considering places that allow beers in the seats of non-club areas. At Folsom only the beer garden and club/seat areas have beer.
Should CU start offering beer throughout the stadium? Maybe with exclusions of the student section and maybe a "family section" on the west side as that gets re-developed?
I think they should. When I had season tickets and I tried to give my second one away to friends that were not hardcore CU fans the lack of beer in the stadium made it harder to do.
I always thought if they wanted to control it make people get a wrist band that had three punches on it. Once those three punches are punched you are done. Also just allow one beer to be bought per person at one time. Mid-way thru the 3rd they stop. They can start without number of beer restrictions and maybe add them if there are issues.
yes. more beer more places. I swear I'm not an alcoholic.
They should just that finger dye they used in the afghan elections. Once all 10 fingers have been dyed, you can't purchase another beer.
More beer, more locations, less rules making it so hard to get it (insert wrist bands). I hate that system as they do not offer them anywhere near my seats but they do sell the beer right beside the entrance to my seats. Sell it everywhere besides the student section and check ids like they do other places. Not hard
It would be interesting to see how offering beer sales in the stadium as a whole affects ticket sales. It certainly wouldn't hurt.
Leave a loop hole open so the students can drink beer too. If the game is a party option, the students will come. I know we did. Win, win.
Yep; when I was in school my friends talked me into going to Buffs basketball games because we could get beer there.
UT netted 1.8 million from beer sales this year.
Why exclude the student section? If you're old enough to drink, you're old enough to drink.
I didn't know "beer" could be used as a verb.
CU took beer out of the stadium because it said it wanted to cut down on binge drinking. It has been painfully obvious to anybody paying attention that it had exactly the opposite effect. But CU had a problem. They couldn't very well admit that it was a colossal mistake to ban beer sales in the first place, so they began a slow process of reintroducing beer sales in the stadium. First in the club seats, then in the beer garden, then in the rooftop deck and champions lounge. I expect beer sales to be reintroduced at regular concession stands at some point in the next 4-5 years.
Why should college games be treated differently than professional sporting events in the regard to beer being sold? Why does there need to be restrictions on how many?
This is a breakdown for UT. I wonder how UT not being a dumpster fire would affect those numbers.
What the Hell is a liquor floater?
Nationally a lot of schools were cutting beer sales. CU did not want to be an outlier.
Great, caved to peer pressure when alcohol was involved.
Yes I did.
I think CU was one of the last to join the list.
You brought her, you liquor floater!
I think that was gross and not net.
They sold 3x more Redd's Apple Ales than Shiner Bock - that's not very Texasy of them.
