Reported in No Kegs, No Liquor: College Crackdown Targets Drinking and Sexual Assault.  (The New York Times, 10/29/2016)
Yet in June, the university joined the more than 35 universities that sell beer to general-admission ticket holders at their football stadiums. 
Unlike most other Big Ten universities, critics said, Ohio State succumbed to the allure of additional revenue.

Well, folks, more than 100,000 people were in the stadium for the Rutgers game.  How many more do you think were in the vicinity of 411 Woody Hayes Drive in Columbus, Ohio, soaking up the atmosphere?  

And Chris is touting 10 citations for underage drinking?

By the way, 3 of the 5 schools profiled in this NYT article are in the Big 10:  Michigan and Indiana in addition to Ohio State.
