Until a few years ago, alcohol at college sporting events was a delicate dance in hypocrisy. Back in 1991 without a special exemption, the sale of alcohol was not allowed at public university facilities. You could always tailgate with your own booze before the game and universities would hold private events where alcohol was available, but there was no public sale. The Raleigh-Durham Skyhawks played at NC State's Carter-Finley arena.
The prohibition of beer sales presented a loss of revenue for the team and frankly a lack of fun for fans. It was yet another loss for a team that was already having a terrible season.
