NCAA Approves Alcohol Sales to the General Public at Championships

Recommended Posts

It's going to be a shredded knee or two every year due to booze fueled wrestling just to prove...

 

I should know...In my college years.

 

I refuse to drink during wrestling events so I wouldn't miss anything.

Hope the NCAA has big cash reserves to handle the lawsuits when a fan who was drinking at an event gets hurt - or worse, drives off and kills a family on the road.

Drunk "fans" are just drunks. No one likes them and no one wants to be near them.

The number of drunks thrown out of venues will increase and incidents in the stands will as well.

 

NCAA is asking for trouble with this one.

They sold beer this year and there were some drinks a being consumed (if you count budlight as a drink).

Most people kept it under control, some drunks in my area but no one creating an incident.

 

I'd like to think that this event would keep things on the up and up and keep the woodchucking sister humpers home.

Yuengling Black and Tan, not bad.

Black and Tan is Yuengling's best offering, 1857 is second, followed by it's Lager imo.

They make a pretty decent porter ale, too, although it's hard to find here in north NJ.

This was not the first time beer was sold at NCAA's. Haven't read any reports of incidents this or in previous championships. Most drinkers do so between and after sessions as most of us are 'serious fans and don't want to miss any action.

Alcohol has been permitted in suites and boxes (private venues) but not in general admission seating open to the public.

 

The trial started two years ago (at the college world series) and expanded through this year with some other events included (including all divisions of wrestling) without incident.

I don't drink (been sober for 8 years now)  so if anybody buys me all session pass to the NCAA's I can be the full time chauffer! LOL.  Never been to DIs

To hell with them.

If you live to go the greatest event our sport has collegiality and spent your time in that condition, you're no fan but a juvenile delinquent.

Besides, who the hell can afford to get in that condition at $10 a pop?

Also, Yuengling is panther piss. 

 

They're not juveniles when they are 21+ mostly older. but you're a choad.

I'll break this down and type it as slow as I can for you.

 

If you get fall down drunk at the NCAA's then you're a juvenile.  Grow up.

If you want to be a drunk as an "adult" and represent the crap of society then go to NFL games.

Think they will be able to keep adults from giving the beer to minors at the venues?

 

Liability will cost a lot. You are dealing not only with mature fans but stupid College kids in the crowd.

Not seeing a ton of college-aged kids in the stands at NCAAs ...

That’s one of our problems. Lots of gray haired fellows attending Nationals. Young guys are far and few between. How do we attract younger fans?

Easy, go to a dual meet format.

Can't wait for the board's NCAA Championships drinking game next season.

 

Every time Quint Kessenich asks a wrestler "how did that feel?" right after a match, drink!

 

Every time a Penn State wrestler mentions fun, drink! If he also mentions God, chug your entire glass!

 

Every time an Iowa wrestler takes a shot, take a shot!
