06:19 PM ET 03.07 | The University of Texas might be looking to further monetize their athletic programs by allowing for the sale of alcohol at football, basketball and baseball games. Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds indicated discomfort at the possibility of beer and liquor at Longhorn sporting events, saying "it doesn't quite feel right, but ... it might be safer to serve it than not serve it." Dodds also stated that baseball might get the first test run before expanding it to the major non-revenue sports.

Yeah I don't like it. I quit attending Cowboy games years ago because of the drunk and disorderly factor.

The "numbers" supporting this proposal were most likely submitted by drunk college kids.

Geez, doesn't Bevo make enough Benjamins already? Whisky-Tango-Foxtrot, JJ?

TX just hired Alabama's Patrick Suddes as Director of Player Personnel (new position). We're hiring some "quality control" positions too. Our staff will soon be HUGE.

We just entered the arms race (a little late mind you) and we need the extra money.

...And most of them underage, to boot. I foresee the fake I.D. card industry ramping up production in the Austin area by August.

I guess I'm just an old man and too far out of touch, but I didn't think they were allowed to sell booze at a college football stadium??

This Dodds guy has already drunk so much he has lost the few brain cells that he had to start.
