    No more beer ads on broadcasts, which I find amazing since games in Madison (and anywhere in Wisconsin) are predicated on beer.

    University of Wisconsin bans advertising by beer companies during sports broadcasts

    MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin football fans listening to games on the radio this fall will hear few, if any, beer ads for the first time in years.

    The university has ended long-standing sponsorship agreements with MillerCoors and Anheuser-Busch InBev for advertising during Badgers sports broadcasts. The deals, which brought the university about $425,000 per year, were not renewed after a campus committee recommended doing away with them as part of its fight against binge drinking.

    This will likely stop beer drinking on campus immediately.

    That's because Bret Bielema's teams already make the fan base wanna' drink.

    From what I've gathered back in Madison, the head coach would probably be best off without ANY booze or extra 'man pills'.

    This will not end well ... for the dopes making this decision.

    Madison, Wisconsin is the only place in America where they escort the drunks INTO the stadium.

    Anheuser-Busch InBev is dropping its "Fan Cans" promotions from communities around the country where colleges have complained that the effort -- which sells cans of Bud Light in school colors -- promotes underage drinking and infringes on trademarks.
