LSU AD: Selling Alcohol Would "Enhance Fan Experience"

 
LSU AD: Selling Alcohol Would

According to LSU’s Athletic Director, alcohol “enhances the fan experience” of college sports.  In other news the sky is blue and the sun warms the Earth.

According to Al.com, the SEC is prepared to review the alcohol policy for any neutral site game or home game played off campus. Selling alcohol on campus appears to be off the table for now.  So in other words, the next time you go to a football game in SEC country, you may be able to do so while responsibly enjoying an alcoholic beverage of choice if that game is being played off campus.

LSU athletics director Joe Alleva seems to support the idea, saying it would “enhance the fan experience.”

“I don’t think that’s something that would necessarily be a negative for drunkenness and it might curtail the drunkenness if you sold beer,” Alleva told Al.com.  ”Right now, they drink excessively in the parking lot before they come in because they can’t get alcohol inside. Perhaps if they had access in the stadium, they wouldn’t drink as much when they come in. I think it’s something we have to talk about. This may come down the road in the future, and I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”

Currently the SEC has two neutral site games within the conference in 2014 with Georgia and Florida’s annual game in Jacksonville.  Also the Texas A&M and Arkansas game played in Cowboys Stadium.
