Oh god. I thought the way PSU handled Sandusky was so awful that anyone would learn from it. Then MSU said hold my beer. Christ. This reaction is making PSU's seem brilliant. Holy shit. Amateur hour. All the way from MSU's president's tone deaf resignation letter to Dantonio and Izzo today. If those 2 buffoons last the weekend, i'll be shocked. This stuff runs so deep at that place. Nasser was like the tip of the iceberg there.:eek:

From trying to skirt around Title IX, trying their damnedest to shut ESPN up when they were going after this before, the multitude of cover ups of allegations that continued to be brought forward against a multitude of athletes. There might not be actual NCAA violations but I consider this a complete lack of institutional control. But shame on the NCAA president. He knew about sexual assault issues at MSU 8 fucking years ago and did absolutely nothing. He let this continue!

The SEC is considering allowing colleges to sell alcohol inside the stadiums (of course the bastards would wait till after I had graduated and moved back to Blighty...perhaps I could go to grad school...). I would love to see how much merlot and chardonnay Vandy could sell in a season.

I've always thought it was just a matter of time. A really obvious way to make a shit load more money was always going to be hard to resist. I know a lot of campuses just have a blanket ban on alcohol so that's part of the reason it's been the way it has, and I understand that in terms of bringing alcohol into dorm rooms etc. but really if you're in the stadium or at a tailgate I don't see why people who are legally old enough to drink shouldn't be allowed to have a couple of beers or whatever.

Apparently, Texas makes over $2.5m in beer sales alone so I can understand why a number of colleges want this.

It's ridiculous that at LSU we're allowed to drink anywhere on campus except in the stadium. We used to double fist beers whilst queueing to get into the stadium. The common sense idea is to let schools decide for themselves.

Yeah it's a no-brainer in terms of making money to be honest. With very minimal effort team will earn millions of dollars extra. I agree, let schools decide for themselves definitely, but I imagine most will take up the offer. A&M, for example, is quite religious apparently so I suppose some like that might decide to keep the moral highground. I guess we'll see.

That LSU situation is hilarious to be fair, I didn't realise that was even a thing. I was under the impression that the colleges were all dry campuses but to have a "wet" campus but dry stadium is just bizarre :confused:
