Robert Wolfe, who graduated from WVU in 1994, also said it would promote bad behavior.
"While I for one would love to be able to buy a beer at Mountaineer Field or the Coliseum, there is no way in my heart of hearts I can say that this is a good idea," Wolfe said. "Our student population has never shown that they are responsible enough for something like this."
Morgantown resident Rich Goellner said that selling beer at the stadium would move WVU athletic events one step closer to being like non-family friendly European soccer events.
"It's a drunk thug fest," Goellner said. "Quite profitable, however."
Mark Dean, a 2008 graduate who is in law school, said that as a member of the Marching Band and Pep Band, he had seen better behavior at other Big East schools that already allow beer sales. He thinks selling beer at Mountaineer games will reduce pre-game binge drinking.
"Many of our peer institutions already allow beer sales in their stadiums and in all my travels I never experienced an alcohol-related problem any greater than at Mountaineer Field," he said. "Indeed, the fan bases at a few of these stadiums could sometimes seem more 'tame' than the average Mountaineer game crowd."
"I am in favor of beer sales at the football games," said Class of '85 alum Debbie Greskevitch. "Could we do as Syracuse does and cut it off in the third quarter?"
Matt Freeman agreed with Oliver Luck's reasoning that controlled sales could lead to more responsible fan behavior.
"Alcohol sales in the stadium would prevent the irresponsible 'loading up' of many fans BEFORE they get in the stadium because it would be made responsibly available to them IN the stadium," Freeman said.
Season ticket holder Eric Lewis agreed.
"Responsible adults should be allowed to enjoy a beer at a WVU football game," Lewis said. "I am a firm believer that the vast majority can and will act responsibly."
WVU graduate and Morgantown resident Carol Shaub said her older sister Brenda Garden was killed Oct. 11, 2000 by a drunk driver on her way to work.
"Please don't let the university to be an accomplice to this kind of tragedy," she said.
