Alcohol and angry fans? Not a good mix!

There simply is not enough places to buy alcohol. We need more. Many more. Regarding the games, the mens restrooms at both Little Rock and Fayetteville are littered with empty alcohol containers after the games- so why not sell the stuff (with a huge price) and let the institution of higher learning make some money off it? And lets not stop with just selling alcohol in the stands, there should also be kiosks set up in the parking lot and on the sidewalks so the inebriated fans wont get dry walking to or from the games. Heck, they could even sell 6,12 or 24 packs to go. Go Hogs.

We never had a problem getting getting alcohol into stadium back in the good ol' SWC days! We also never had a problem getting sh*t faced BEFORE the game even started!

I don't have a problem with it at all, and in fact I favor it. Let's quit pretending that this is not a money-making venture. If the ritzy club seating crowd can drink (legally), it should be open to all.

PEOPLE ARE CRAZY ENOUGH WITHOUT alcohol that is not a good mix.

tenpoint--right. People aren't drinking at all before the game, right outside (and inside)) the stadium. At least let's let the schools make some bank off the will of the people.
