UCF Football - I would need to drink to watch them too

Just Shut Up Offseason Fan Award

This one goes to the fans at Central Florida (35), who simply cannot believe that their school will no longer allow them to commence getting liquored up on campus at 7 a.m. on game days. UCF has prohibited campus tailgating until the intolerably late hour of 8 a.m. for games that kick off before 6 p.m. (there are three of them this year), and until noon for games that kick off at 6 or later (four of those).



The university decision has so enraged some fans you'd think the school had just gone Mormon on them.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, some Knights backers have threatened to drop their season tickets or stop giving to the university. UCF coach George O'Leary reportedly commiserated with the fans, telling them, "I'm on your side."

Nobody is telling UCF fans they can't crack the seals on their whiskey bottles at 7 a.m. They just can't do it on campus. If that's worth canceling your season tickets, you might be better off at the Betty Ford Clinic than the lyrically named Bright House Networks Stadium.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Yeah, he' looks like he's on their side…and at this point in time he better make friends, because they will be calling for his arse if they whiff again this year!

I went to UCFs Conf USA Championship game against Tusla a few years back at the Citrus Bowl and they had a Noon start to try and curb the drinking…no such luck. I was dragged out of bed at 4am (on 2 hours sleep) to head to the stadium and the place was rocking by 6!

If it's one thing they know how to do up there, it's get drunk!

Wow. I never understood why people would get up EARLY to drink. It just doesn't make any sense to me. They suck anyways so who cares,lol. I'm going to try to go to the Miami game there. (I've been a Canes fan since I was little). I think their Coach is stupid for backing the students, he shouldn't have even commented on it.

As someone who has gotten up early to drink on numerous occcasions, I resemble that remark :D.  Maybe just cause it's so out of the normal to be up a 6 or 7 am drinking with a large group of people?  I'm not really sure why, but for me, getting to any event early and tailgating (read drinking) is equally as important as the game itself.  It adds to the day's experience and lets you meet new people.  I'm not sayin it's right, but it's what I do.  Even though it is still plenty of time to go tailgate, it still sucks anytime the man puts restrictions on you.
