Masochistic Maryland fans who just won't stop watching Terrapin sports are set to get a massive reprieve: Alcohol sales are coming to Maryland games!

From Jeff Ermann of

University of Maryland president Wallace Loh has approved a proposal to sell alcohol at school sporting events, sources close to the process told InsideMDSports. While it's not official yet, it appears likely fans will be able to purchase a limited amount of alcoholic drinks at Terps games beginning this fall.

The next step before it becomes official: Maryland's proposal must be accepted by the Prince George's County liquor board in a review later this summer, which is expected to be a non-issue according to sources close to the plan.

I feel like once more schools start selling booze (and not collapsing into the earth after doing so), alcohol sales in college sports will be commonplace in 10-15 years. 

Now we just need to figure out how to get those poor folks at Rutgers a stiff, legal drink. That's just human decency, right?
