They ain’t drunk. They just buying beer.

C’mon, Joe.  You know better.

Alleva said the possibility of selling beer isn’t about money. Has he even run the numbers?

“I haven’t studied it,” he said. “I have no idea.”

First rule of life:  when they say it’s not about money, it’s about money.

    Wow. Simultaneously treating students with righteous indignation if they get caught with so much as a mouthful of alcohol, while planning to open up another “revenue stream” by SELLING many, many mouthfuls of alcohol at games? Somewhere, Michael Adams is sitting back in a $2,500 leather chair he pinched from UGA on his way out the door, lighting up a Cohiba, and nodding approvingly.

    I’m sure that all the proceeds from the sale of Demon Rum will go to make sure UGA administrators are able to maintain their modest standards of living. We wouldn’t want anyone to have to drive last year’s Mercedes. Imagine the embarrassment when they roll up for a conference meeting, step off the Gulfstream, and then have to admit they’re still rocking a 2013 sedan. The horror. The horror.


    • Eh, they’ll promise to throw a couple of bucks into treatment and alcohol education programs. That’ll make it all good.

        “It’s for the CHILDREN!” Isaiah Crowell and JHC would like to know if this benevolent treatment program could be extended to cover weed?

        the suits in the SEC athletic departments clearly have zero shame; I wonder if they actually believe their own BS?

      But it’s only beer. That’s different.

    The beer sales is just to enhance the fan experience. It has nothing to do with money

    Honesty has been replaced by being able to keep a straight face while saying something you know is complete bullshit.

    $1 an ounce beer ain’t for the revenue. Sure.

    LSU coach Les Miles said, “I promise you, we would enjoy playing in front of a Tiger Stadium crowd that occasionally had a beer.”

    You want a beer at a UGA game just sit in the suites. This is perhaps the most hypocritical thing that UGA ever did. Regular fans get tossed out of the game or sent to jail for bring in liquor but the big donors can get all they want. UGA has not been the same school since they built the suites.
