â†µThe university joins Southern University in debuting beer sales in the â†µstands this year, both because it's a way to get extra revenue, and â†µbecause there's no rule saying they can't makes a buck off selling â†µalcohol legally. In fact, there's no rule saying you couldn't sell 24 â†µoz Fuzzy Navels in little footballs to squealing 21-year-old sorority â†µsisters all day, only an informal agreement between schools and in â†µconferences saying they won't. The only other schools who will let â†µyou tipple in the stands are Tulane and Miami, teams that play their â†µgames in pro stadiums, and who are therefore not bound by pesky â†µuniversity rules regarding sale of alcohol by university institutions. â†µâ†µ
â†µNow, there are a thousand different university regulations regarding â†µthe sale of alcohol in campus buildings, but they could be swept away â†µwith a few determined swipes of a university president's pen. Better â†µthat things remain the way they are in college football, though. Let's â†µkeep the game as sober and clean as it's always been, protect innocent young fans from demon rum, and insure that sassy young lads and lasses enjoy the fresh air and excitement of â†µa football game without the intrusion of poisonous alcohol. All the intoxication â†µthey need is right â†µthere in the stadium, after all! â†µâ†µ
