Antlers Petition for Kegs
Morris belongs to the Antlers, a student group that's collecting signatures on a campus petition this week. The Antlers want MU to drop its new ban on beer kegs at pre-game tailgating.
"The rule is definitely targeted at college-aged and just-out-of-college people," Morris said.
Campus police disagreed.
"That's the farthest thing from the truth because it's enforced unilaterally across any type of situation we would come upon," responded Capt. Brian Weimer.
Morris countered, "Whether it's in a keg or in 6 coolers' worth of beer, I can't imagine them coming up to that person who paid $1,000 for that parking spot and saying, 'You can't have that.'"
The Antlers also will collect signatures after Saturday afternoon's game against the University of Mississippi, then the group will give the petition to MU Athletic Director Mike Alden.
