”One of the things we saw consistently when talking to schools that tried beer sales, is that it began changing fan behavior,” Miner said. “We heard a lot of feedback that fans don’t feel the pressure to drink and preload before entering the stadium. There’s no longer that pressure to chug a few beers while tailgating because you know you can’t drink anymore once you’re inside the stadium.”

Never considered this- then I thought about what the last 30 minutes are like when we start breaking things down are like. The guzzling does accelerate and those late tailgate arrivals feel like they have to catch up. It would be nice to know that there is a cold one waiting for me inside, even if it costs $8.

Of course there will be isolated incidents and the older, more sedate crowd will complain but the bottom line is the sustained growth and financial health supporting the program. I firmly believe that beer sales during games (up until the start of the 4th quarter) will lower the average age of the crowd (not to mention raise the decibel level).

Then again--all it will take is for some idiot to hurl a cup or can down towards the field for the whole thing to unravel.

Got some mail from ODU football today. Figured it would be the tickets but it was a lapel pin of the new 10 year logo. It's nice.

Really liked the 10 yr logo. Got a pennant from Amazon and ebay has them too.
