    No Beer in Sprint Center

    Has this always been the case for college games?

    Really disappointed to have no beer being served in the games.

    I know bowl games have beer but that's because they are not NCAA sanctioned events, while conference tournaments are.

    Because there is probably a fine involved with selling alcohol and they don't want to pay it.

    That wouldn't be too hard to cover considering a beer at a sporting event or concert is damn near $7.

    Big12 shut out beer sales at their "championship" events since around 2003. Not a Sprint Center decision at all.

    I don't think he was suggesting this was a Sprint Center thing. ie...they built the place and forgot to put in beer taps.

    Re: No Beer in Sprint Center

    From one of the 28 'cuse games on ESPN this year, I thought I saw their fans having beer.

    I could have swore I saw people drinking beer at the Sprint Center for this year's Big 12 Tourny.
