cambell leaves back to paul rhoades level of goodness i assume?
It's not going to cause more drunks in the stadium, it's certainly not going to hurt tailgating, and it may 'cheapen' the club section but it's still going to sell out because it's not that much more money and people like the option of going inside when it's either too hot or cold.
It's a no-brainer but of course some people will complain about anything. The only legitimate complaint I've seen is the concession lines, but I'm sure they'll have separate ones that don't sell beer so I doubt that will be much of an issue either.
If he really wants to improve the in game experience, JP needs to bring back "Smoke on the Water" (ducks and runs for cover)
Those south endzone seats won't sell out for half they price they are now though.
I don't agree that's true but even if it is I don't care, only selling to a certain section is BS.
I NEVER go to the concession stands. I can go a day without food and can certainly make it through a game without concessions, especially after tailgating. I hate missing game action so I would prbably not benefit from in-game beer sales unless they had people in the stands selling.
I don’t think so with what we have shown that we are willing to pay Campbell. That alone should generate interest.
Here's my hot generalization on the topic...from the perspective of attending college sporting events for over 30 years...
The percentage of people attending FB (and this can apply to MBB as well) games to actually watch the game (hard core fans) is declining, while the percentage of people attending FB games as a social event (casual fans) is increasing. The beer and alcohol sales are needed for the latter, to draw them in, keep them entertained, and get them to come back. Hard-core fans will be at the game...casual fans...maybe, maybe not.
If you've got a smaller stadium and and a good base of hard-core fans, you don't need to sell booze. However, if you've got seats to fill, in-stadium alcohol sales seems to be the one of the magic tricks used to try and fill the stadium. It's no coincidence that the increase in number of college stadiums selling alcohol is occurring as college FB attendance continues to drop.
From the article below linked below:
I put a pint of BV in my beltline and have never had any problems. Way cheaper than beer and I don't miss the game.
I hope they don't sell beer in Jack Trice. Just let us bring in our own.
I just hit the concession stand to get my mixer (coke) for the rum I smuggle in Mrs. Gaggi's bra.
UT was selling beer and mixed drinks in the stands in Austin last year for the ISU/UT game, they had little stands off the ramps and opposite the food stands. I think beer was 8 bucks, I never purchased it myself, but I did drink one that my son brought back for me. Good variety, had some local beers, and Miller I think.
Caused no problems that I could see.
Give it a few years, we will be selling beer in JTS. It will not hurt the premium seating much at all. They also get better food and shorter lines to the bathroom, plus they can get out of the cold.
Same here, always smuggle in a flask of rum, did it in Austin too. Send the oldest boy for a couple of cokes and I am good to go.
This is an EASY decision for JP IMO.
You sell beer stadium wide for $10 a can, and don't allow anyone to leave at halftime anymore. That would be awesome.
If we were to get rid of allowing people to leave at halftime, I’d be all for it.
Look buddy, not everybody drinks a fifth by noon.
KU should let the players drink for free.
Wake up Pollard.
Jamie has said nearly all the problems we have now are because of alcohol. More of it is the last thing we need. His words not mine.
