    BTW the stadium people need to make sure that there is no abusive language etc by anyone. But you that dont think that alcholol is at the game currently, are putting your head in the ground like a ostrich. How many fights have been at Driller Stadium, Tulsa 66's games, thunder game. But I am pretty sure it is against OSU rules

    Beer sales, yes! Not just allow, but encourage! Wine too, and that would help out local Oklahoma wineries as well. Big spur to the economy overall, more money for OSU, yes.

    Pretty sure that comparing the crowd at Driller Stadium to the pressure cooker that is Boone Pickens Stadium is a bit of a stretch...

    hmmm... I don't think any of that is exactly true... I served booze to the regents in the Student Union in the 70's... but they had some bizarre trick where the "bar area" was actaully in the Hotel... wink, wink.

    At is turns out, it is all simply a matter of University Policy.

    Besides, everyone knows baseball players fight like girls (Except Nolan Ryan).

    I really think the claim of illegality is just an old wives tale. I think it's an administrative rule to keep beer/liquor out of the residence halls and away from students. Back in the day before liquor by the drink this "law" was always touted, yet the Student Union served mixed drinks in the Oklahoma Room to the BOR, and other dignitaries. There were other examples of the law really only being applicable to students, and when not doing it might cause a public stir.

    If they are "leasing" the parking lot and the suites to the ticket holders then they can "lease" the stadium to the ticketholders there as well. It's another case of applying a "law" selectively.

    If there is actually such a law, and it's not being enforced uniformly, then it needs to be changed or enforced uniformly.

    And most of those accounts are from previous years before they started the sales. The police chief said they had less problems and fewer arrests this year.

    In a resource-based economy, no one will need to buy drinks. They will just be available to anyone that wants to partake.

    They aren't going to kill the re-entry thing as long as alumni donors have a say and its a dry stadium. We have numerous donors who can't afford the suites who like to go have a beer/more bbq etc at halftime instead of watching the band. I think there would actually be less drinking if they changed the rule though because who wants to spend 6 bucks or whatever for a beer? (Most students won't be able to thats for sure) If they try keep me from re-entering i'd rather just have it a dry stadium so I can go out and drink my cheap stuff that isn't upcharged due to venue.

    That's a solid right hook.

    It may help with concession sales, but wont increase attendance. In fact it could decrease attendance if drunk fans cause negative experiences for others. Don't get me wrong, I am not a prude, but I have no desire to listen to a bunch of drunk fans. I have been to many NFL games and refuse to take my kids back due to abusive language and crude behavior. I would hate to see OSU fans have to make that choice! I like a beer as much as the next guy, I wait until after the game and go to Joes.

    I wouldn't mind being able to buy a nice winter warmer during one of those late season games, but I don't see it ever happening.
