According to the Daily Texan, the University of Texas student newspaper, the school is considering selling alcohol at Texas Longhorns football, basketball, and baseball games.
If this does indeed come to pass, the program would be the third member of the Big 12 conference to do so, joining the Iowa State Cyclones and the West Virginia Mountaineers.
The NCAA currently does not regulate alcohol sales at regular season sporting events, and there are about 20 major college venues which currently allow it–even more that allow alcohol sales in luxury suites.
Longhorn athletic director Deloss Dodds told the student paper that this is an issue that’s been discussed for several years, adding that he has mixed feelings about the possibility:
If we ever did it, we’d probably start with baseball. There’s something about it that doesn’t quite feel right, but there’s people telling me that it might be safer to serve it than not serve it. It’s an issue. I guarantee you we talk about it at almost every other staff meeting.
