So about once a year the CU board of regents bans guns somewhere, someone challenges it, and the regents lose.

Is this really how they want to spend university money? Having this fight over and over and over and over and over?

I'm fully in favor of this rule. We wouldn't want this to happen again, would we?

As a CU Alum, and long-time season ticket holder...this is a non-story. Of course you can't have a farking gun at Folsom Field. Nor can you bring a gun into a Bronco's game.

But what the Regents really need is to allow Beer sales at Folsom. SO MUCH MONEY can be made from selling beer, and they're fooling themselves if they think that not allowing beer makes anything better. The students just show up more drunk as a result, and then try to get more drunk at halftime. It's silly.

Actually, everything the administration does related to CU's football team is silly. No beer. Ridiculous recruiting restrictions, where a kid has to be followed by an adult at all time. AS IF THAT'S GOING TO HELP CONVINCE A BIG PLAYER TO COME TO CU.

And then we wonder why we have a terrible football team.

Well, Gary Barnett is no longer there to say something horribly insensitive and stupid after the fact if it does happen, so they got that going for them, which is nice.

there was a freakanomics podcast recently that talked about this, apparently west virginia started doing this last year and minnesota is piloting it this year. west virginia says arrests are down since selling beer (presumably) because people started pacing themselves better.

Well, it would stop a bunch of suicides at halftime.

well biology will stop any resulting pregnancies, everyone knows that. but it won't stop the actual rapes. only lots and lots of guns everywhere can do that.

That makes sense. While at CU I went to one game. I got hilariously drunk at 11 am beforehand to get ready. If I could buy beer at the game, I would only have pregamed a little.

Shrug.

The worst thing about going to a game at Folsom, well besides the embarrassing team on the field, is the fact the don't serve coke. When I sneak a couple of flasks into a game, I expect to be able to mix it with a proper mixer. I'm suppose to drink whiskey and Pepsi? WTF?

I agree they need to sell beer at Folsom. I remember I lived just down the hill from the stadium on Canyon blvd when I went there. We had a pre-party for all of the games and often times ran back at half time to re-booze. All of the students are black out drunk anyway, at this point it literally couldn't make the problem worse. (Unless things have changed since I graduated in 2008 that is, which is pretty unlikely)

It really hasn't changed that much. It's still kids black out drunk by the time they show up at the game, halfway through the first half. Meanwhile, all the older alum sit around wishing for a beer just to get the bad taste of watching freshman drop punts out of mouths.

The CSU-CU games at Invesco (er, Sports Authority?) Field are even worse, because there's ads for Coor's EVERYWHERE. Makes me so thirsty.

The Rape Passes that CU football players get are a pretty attractive perk.

To be honest, they weren't great hostesses in the first place.

What's funny is I actually store all my guns in holsters under the seats at Folsom. I guess no one has ever bothered to look though.

Or the 70-3 beat down at the hands of Texas in the 2005 Big-12 Championship Game. Texas didn't even bother to try to score anymore mid-way through the third period.

/CU football was never the same after that game
//Now they lose to I-AA teams

And McCartney's no longer there to recruit gangsters and murderers.
