UCF Fans Rejoice: No Game Day Booze Ban
Posted Jun 19th 2007 6:37PM by Brian Grummell
Filed under: Conference USA, NCAA FB Fans, UCF Football

The University of Central Florida has instructed area and campus police to disregard open container laws on football game day.
The University of Central Florida's new football stadium has endowed the student body with more than just a sparkling new football field. The new stadium has also led the school to create a new set of game-day rules, one of which calls for police to disregard open-container laws. That means that on days of Central Florida's home games students can walk around campus openly drinking beer.

There are some exceptions to the new rule. Students cannot drink from a common source (like a keg), and beer funnels are not allowed. There will also be no drinking allowed in university buildings, so a pre-game Power Hour in the library is out of the question. The drinking can start at 11 a.m. and last until two hours after the game ends.

The Golden Knights are christening their new stadium with a visit from Texas.

Although there are always concerns about alcohol when disregarding open container laws, the school's fans and students will appreciate the new policy given the area's intense heat and humidity in September.

It can be eliminated surgically after a certain age.

This MIGHT not be such a bad idea. When I was a freshman in college, alcohol was banned from campus. This did NOT stop ANYONE at any time from consuming alcohol. What I did observe was people going off campus to party at bars and pizza-restaurants that sold beer as well keg parties at state parks. Most people were either driving intoxicated or were in a vehicle with an intoxicated driver. Many people received DUI's. Some also paid the ultimate price. I was "written up" several times for having alcohol on campus and became well acquainted with the dean. My father was both PO'd and pleased. I remember saying to my father who was a realistic man, "I can either drink responsibly on campus with my friends or drink off campus." On campus you could walk or stagger back to your dorm room and sleep it off. Off campus was not the same scenario. I had and have great respect for my father who is now deceased. He told me, you better not get into trouble, no driving drunk or riding in a car with a drunk driver and don't be an a$$hole." I followed his advice and have never received a DUI and have been a responsible consumer of alcoholic beverages. I think there is something positive to allowing alcohol and its consumption on campus. If you get out of hand on campus you are still subject to the legal system besides potentially jeopardizing your academic career. College is a nurturing process and I believe if managed correctly can help people be socially responsible. The reality is the majority of normal young folks are going to participate in social activities with their peers. Drinking booze was not a priority of mine as it was not a big deal to me. When I was youngster and wanted a drink of booze my father said, “Go ahead and have it.” It simply was never a big deal to me as it was available if I wanted it. Consequently for me, I did not have the desire to get liquored up. Many other friends who were forbidden to consume alcohol were very eager to consume alcohol and often became plastered. It appeared to me that the motivation to consume alcohol was because it was taboo for them. Many of these same people today have not exactly done wonderful things with their lives. It might be coincidence but nevertheless is my observation.

As a parent you are obligated to do the right thing. Send her a bottle of the good stuff.

This is a fairly typical campus policy, and often times extends into various towns, or parts of towns, when the stadium is located off campus. Clemson I know has a very similar policy, with the exception that kegs are allowed if registered for an organized tailgate event. People going to that much trouble is rare, but it's allowed.

I think the whole point here is that if people are going to tailgate anyway, and drink, which there is absolutely no way to avoid, you may as well set some basic guidelines, and allow it. Bust peoples arse for doing stupid stuff as a result, not for just drinking.

I think the rule makes sense. There are existing rules on disorderly conduct that can be enforced.

I am not sure if it is common in other college towns. It may have something to do with the Orlando police officer that was shot & killed outside the Citrus bowl during tailgating festivities a year or so ago.

I think Profinity is right about the motivational thing. There was always wine at table for Sunday family dinner, no matter which branch of the family we were having dinner with. Any of us kids could have a glass of wine WITH dinner (usually cut with a little water for the younger ones) any time we wanted. Not too many takers since we preferred soda or Kool-Aid (Some of that home-made wine was nasty). Never had much of an appetite for liquor as a result, not that I don't have a 'social' drink or beer with certain food from time to time.

The only 'drinkers' in our family are the ones that married in.
