You know what sounds like an awful time? A night club that doesn't serve alcohol. You know what sounds worse than that? A night club in Razorbacks Stadium that doesn't serve alcohol.

Yet, this is the design from the same people who thought hiring Bert was a good idea in the first place.

From the Arkansas program (via Yahoo!):

The new Razorback Rooftop will provide University of Arkansas students an opportunity to sit together, socialize and mingle with friends while watching the best college football in the country. The Club will be located above the south end zone on the top deck which was used for student seating in past years.

Oh, it gets "better." From Yahoo!:

The “club” will have a “live DJ, couches, TVs, and high-top tables,” among other amenities. For each home game, 2,000 wristbands will be made available for students who purchased an $85 “access pass.”

Nothing better than paying $85 for the right to be sober and listen to trance music while you watch your team get steamrolled by Alabama on a television inside the stadium.

I appreciate their efforts to "improve the game experience". I mean, it's better than free donuts right?

But "while watching the best college football in the country?" Seriously? I'm all for optimism and positivity, but not delusion.

I'm sure that means they have big screen tv's in there that only show the SEC network...

I'd probably just take the doughnuts... And I don't even eat doughnuts.

Does that dude have 11 toes?

The header image for this is (excuse my language) fucking awesome!

Who wants to pay 85 bucks and not be able to have a single adult beverage?

Yea, this about sums it up. Great writing:

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

It will be full every game too.  Anyone want to bet me that it won't?  Anyone want to bet me that they look the other way as to what is in your cup?  If it was warmer in Ohio, you can guarantee it would be sold out at OSU too.

Jeez, that is ridiculous. The student section at Ohio State would never be into something like that. Those cats would much rather be down in the trenches in a -10 degree snowy day with their shirts off playing against Fl A&M than sit up there.

But they're going to end up getting this:

“Don’t fear criticism. The stands are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing. Down on the field are the doers, they make mistakes because they attempt many things.”

That sounds awful.

That is not college football to me.

This could work, but only if there were TWO SUNS

The “club” will have a “live DJ

They must be listening to Bosa, hoping he'll flip.

Don't let Dave Brandon hear about this.  He'll be like: "Yessss! A pizza parlor! We can have indoor fireworks!"
