I'll be away for the FSU Friday night game so won't have to deal with that. Thankfully the ND game is a noon-time start as oppose to 8pm where some ticket holders are drinking all day and night.

I know I'm in the minority here but this is not a good decision. There could have been other ways Jarmond could have improved the game day experience, such as increasing the before and after game tailgating hours for instance.

Trust me I like beer. Beck's is my default beer and I enjoy the craft beers as well.

Walk through any section of the stadium after the game, there are beer cans and nips everywhere.


You all make fun of me for drinking gin, but Becks is disgusting.

I am in favor mainly because there is a small chance it could help attendance. In terms of my game-day drinking preferences, I prefer to have a light pre-game drinking session and go heavy post-game, mainly because I don't have to drive. Drinking during the game usually serves as a distraction for me as it results in missed game action due to multiple trips to the concession stand and restroom. But it is a nice option to have assuming certain visiting fans can handle it without being more obnoxious than they already are (i.e. UMass and Cuse).

I like to drink heavy before the game knowing that the game is going to be boring and Adazzio will always do something stupid. How can anyone watch a BC game sober?

Wow, nothing says "Whalepants" like this fucking post. I saw something come up on Facebook on the BC Athletics page about this topic and more than 50% of the responses were this typical bullshit. "Boohoo, people will be drunk...." STFU already. The product is so fucking mediocre that booze is a necessity.

Booze has not ruined pro athletics (except for those fucking psychos in Europe to the point you can only get non-alcoholic shit at some stadiums). It will likely have a similar impact on college athletics.

I love drinking beer by the way. Been trying to figure out how much money over my lifetime I have spent drinking beer / alcohol.

Serving alcohol isn't going to change anything. The same shitty fans from FSU, etc are still going to be just as obnoxious

The FSU fans 2 years ago were atrocious at a UConn/Maryland level

As predicted, no beer anywhere near the student section.
