General What Have You
ESPN Article highlights the 21 schools that currently sell beer at on-campus stadiums. The list includes a few Power-5 Conference schools (Syracuse, West. Virginia, Louisville) and one Big Ten School Minnesota.
First hand experience has me thinking that based on what I saw at the soccer match earlier this month... That in theory this should be something on the table at all schools for consideration. Conservatively at the soccer match I would not be surprised if 50,000 (probably many more than this) beers were sold in total at $10 a beer. That would be a good amount of revenue across football, basketball, etc.
I know there are other factors and opinions out there, but from what the old timers post on this blog and from what I know from my parents... Michigan Stadium used to be BYOB.
After seeing 100+ responses to a question about whether one should attend law school or not, I want to raise the idea of an OT tab where users can ask questions as often as they would like. Sample questions could be, I need a laptop, what model would you suggest? Do snow tires really help rear wheel drive vehicles? Was American Reunion a good movie? Where are some good areas to sit at a Tigers game?
I think the OT tab would be better than having some specific questions being posted on the main board as they are today. I am not sure how difficult this addition would be, but I do feel it would be nice to have. There are a lot of smart people on this board who share similar interests and it is great to hear outside, unbiased opinions.
