    Jaime reiterates he's in favor of it, but I don't think he has a choice.

    I really hope Jamie would consider this as an option. It would more than cover the extra expenses.

    The more you drink the more you help your Cyclones. It's a win-win.

    Meanwhile, the anti-binge-drinkers in IC will have a real problem on their hands.

    This will be terrible for educational opportunities for hundreds of thousands of students. The other 200 some schools will be forced to cut sports and scholarships to people who would actually GREATLY appreciate the chance at a free education.

    100%. Don't let people with beer into the hillsides and you keep your family environment if you want it.

    And if we cut football all together there would be no money for those scholarships in the first place. Give the money to the people actually earning it.

    This is why the proposal only includes the 65 schools currently in the "Big 5". The other 200 some schools (like UNI and Tulsa) wouldn't be subject to this "cost of attendance" requirement.

    It will make recruits more likely to go to schools in the major conferences.

    I'd gladly contribute if given the chance.

    Is there a NCAA or Big 12 rule against selling beer at games or is it just our decision?

    But these schools won't be able to get pay days anymore, wont be able to schedule, won't be included in the NCAA basketball tournament. It will have a MUCH larger negative effect than you would think. College basketball as we know it will be a cluster. Wrestling will be extinct.

    pretty sure West Virginia sell alcohol at their games.

    Might be something at the state level that prevents it though
