Tanner warming up to idea of alcohol sales

March 22, 2019

At least in December 2018, more than 50 about one-third of all major universities allowed permitted beer sales at their football stadiums, which was up from less than a dozen 10 years ago.

The University of South Carolina is not one of those more than 50 schools allowing alcohol sales, and the school doesn’t have the ability to do so, at least to the general public.

Southeastern Conference rules prohibit the sale of alcohol to the general public at football games. Florida athletics director Scott Stricklin said at the SEC Meetings in Destin, Fla. last year he doesn’t see alcohol being opened up “anytime soon." (247 SPORTS-READ MORE)

I know the SEC approved alcohol sales.

Has the school decided to do it this year?

No. Tanner said not for this upcoming year, but they will revisit the issue next year. Heard a radio interview with him a while back and he alluded to not wanting to spend the money on infrastructure at Willy B since there are renovations planned for after this season. Will be easier and more cost effective to wait. Now, why they won't at basketball games, I have no idea. CLA is already set up to sell beer. I really think he wanted to wait to see what kind of backlash other schools get before committing to selling alcohol.
