UM ALCOHOL

Beginning this weekend there will be a new item on the menu at ole miss athletic events.

Thanks to a change in s-e-c policy fans can now buy a ?cold one?

At vaught hemingway stadium..

Our allie martin checks in as the university prepares for its first weekend in the beer business..

While some sec schools began selling alcohol when football season began, ole miss officials wanted to move slowly.

"we decided to study things, and make sure we are doing things the right way, so we will implement starting on saturday against texas a and m."

Keith carter is interim athletic director for the university of mississippi.

He says the decision by the sec will help reduce problems associated with pre game drinking.

For years, tailgating in the grove has been a tradition, and carter says having beer available inside the stadium is expected to have a positive impact.

"you see some binge drinking, you see people before they go in the stadium, they want to have a drink or two before they come in and sometimes that goes to excess, we think now we can monitor and regulate the sales, we have a better opportunity to monitor that game day and make sure things are going in a positive manner."

Additional, trained staff will be on hand for athletic events.

There are also other rules and regulations.

Sales are limited to two beverages per transaction.

Also, alcohol sales will stop after the third quarter.

Carter says it's important for the university to maintain a family friendly atmosphere even with the sale of alcohol.

"i think for us at the end of the day, we want to implement this and really for people not to notice any difference, for them to come in, and enjoy the game day and all of those things."

Ole miss is the seventh sec school to sell alcohol since the ban was lifted.
