File it under "ideas we can't believe haven't been put into practice already."

LSU -- never exactly a school known for Ivy League decorum and teetotaling tailgates -- has announced that it will be partnering with a local brewery to brand and sell its own LSU beer.

Tin Roof Brewing Co. and Mockler Beverage will be working with a recipe created by LSU's own food science department, with the school reportedly working on logos and labels for the new brew. An LSU spokesman said he hopes to have the beer "on store shelves by fall."

Between this decision and West Virginia's to allow beer sales inside their stadium during Mountaineer games, it's been a good summer for institutionally approved beer. Now if we find out the LSU brew will carry Les Miles's face on the label as well of "hints of grass, sod, and last-minute victory," we'll be set.

Scapegoating alcohol...

In the 60's and early 70's, you could take your own coolers into Michigan Stadium.  Eventually, though, they got so Draconian in Ann Arbor that they don't even allow "pass outs" at halftime anymore.  Meanwhile, USF plays at the Ray Jay, and beer is sold there with no problems.  To soften an old saying in rehab and human potential: "What do you get when you sober up a drunken abuser?  A sober abuser."  Alcohol doesn't cause incidents; idiots cause incidents.
