    I'm sure there are dozens of KU fans that are really excited about this.

    Anything to get their fans to show up, surely it’s not the product on the field.

    I don't think Les needs a beer wagon following him around on the sideline.

    It is just a matter of time before the in-state schools both start doing this. It is way past time.

    Iowa and Iowa State have both built brand new club sections that revolved around alcohol sales... It won't be happening anytime soon.

    At the rate schools are adding it, I think they will. And by soon I mean probably within 5 years.
    It will reach a tipping point because the more schools add it is a stream of revenue the more pressure there will be and the more fans go to other stadiums and enjoy having a beer the more annoyed they will become they can't get one in their own stadium.
    Pollard also went off about how the transfer culture was rotting the soul of america and then ISU became transfer u.

    Jamie drinks. It ain't about that.

    It's about protecting the value of luxury areas that sell alcohol, and preserving the tailgating culture (which is the only reason we draw well when we suck).

    Pollard and the athletic department don't want to add alcohol sales stadium-wide, but they will be forced to soon when that's what everyone else does.

    The money is actually pretty minimal. I get that a lot of us WANT JP to go stadium wide but he's on the record saying that it won't happen. He isn't going to cheapen the experience fort the donors who have shelled out a lot of cash for this privilege.

    Just because one drinks, it doesn't mean they are alright with drinking in every situation.

    I think the athletic dept sees it as a bit of an additional liability, so there are legal drawbacks, and they also want to maintain the "family atmosphere" of college football games.

    Like I said in my other post, this is all a moot point because we will be forced to sell beer stadium-wide sooner than later when that is the norm in the market.
