Games are usually decided by halftime anyways.

I doubt they'll serve 25 cent taps.

There have been many faulty arguments about alcohol sales at TCF Stadium; 1.No other Big 10 schools do it (and no other Big 10 schools did it for 30 years, like the Gophers did at the dome). 2. It will reduce binge drinking to not have students have access (a $7 price tag would prevent such consumption and currently it INCREASES binge drinking with "beer bongs" and "shot gunning" beers in the alcohol-permitted tailgating areas pre-game. 3. Have a "Beer Garden" (if there were concerns before about how it looked to have so many empty seats for televised games, that problem will only increase.) 4. Only in premium seating (that sends the message "You don't need to drink to have a good time but the wealthier people do.) This has been an issue of "posturing" by the U that is not well-thought out and is invalid. Sales to all or sales to none. I would think there was more validity if there were citations of what behavior issues exist from the dome - crickets chirping.
