What’s the use of gettin’ sober…

Texas’ wins total didn’t increase from 2015 to 2016, but its beer drinking did — by a lot.

Alcohol sales spiked more than 70 percent during the 2016 season compared to the previous year as Texas generated $3.1 million in revenue from beer, wine and liquor sold at football games.

Thereby proving that mediocrity is a thirsty state of affairs.

    Another year like 2016 and Dawg fans will skip the beer and start chugging Everclear.

  2. I would have liked to have been able to have a beer in the stands during those noon starts when it was 11,000 degrees as I watched Chaney consistently call dive plays or a 165 pound wide receiver on a toss sweep into 9-man fronts.

    “Want to know what doesn’t sell? Budweiser. The once-proud “King of Beers” is almost a non-starter with the UT crowd. Texas sold 89 cans of Bud all season. Fans cracked open 1,411 Shiner Bocks and 741 Michelob Ultras, by comparison. And fans guzzled 952 Lone Stars.”

    My liver’s level of abuse has risen substantially since mid 2014 when TG3 was suspended. Been a few bright spots sprinkled into a lot of bad football since.

    I am usually against blue laws but Sanford is one place I hope alcohol is never sold. The thought was further confirmed when the guy 3 seats down from me fell into the kid’s seat in front of him at the UNC game.
