Should the Univ. of Toledo sell beer at football games?

The University of Toledo may soon be filling the Glass Bowl stadium with more than just football fans.
School officials confirmed Wednesday morning that a proposal to sell beer and wine during football games is underway for the 2013 season. The sale of alcohol could bring an additional source of revenue to the cash-strapped university, which faces $17 million in spending cuts for the upcoming school year.
In a statement, officials say: "The University of Toledo is considering selling beer and wine at sporting venues, however no formal decision has been yet. This is a trend that a number of college athletic programs, including some in the Mid-American Conference, have adopted as an additional source of revenue. We will let the community know when a formal decision is made."
If approved, UT would join the likes of Bowling Green State University, Akron University, Kent State and 22 other major colleges across the country serving alcohol in their stadiums. According to The Blade, that's more than twice as many as a decade ago.
