On the other hand. Being able to buy beer inside the stadium will likely cut down on the binge drinking ahead of t game, and the amount of liquor that gets smuggled in.

Absolutely. Not that it will completely stop it or curtail binge drinking, but it will reduce the number of people who decide to slam 4 or 5  beers 20 min before the game and sneak in a pint of booze. IMO those are the ones that are generally causing trouble because it all hits at once. Also, I fully expect beer to be outrageously priced meaning most people will only buy a few.

  This will not be a major money maker for the schools. They are using booze to inhance the so called fan experience. This will be a test run to see if the schools or school can cover the cost of extra security and other little extras you have to have when selling booze.

Security will be challenging with this decision.  Hopefully, there will not be  increased student  arrests.
