So Akron is going to start selling beer at their games. Despite a powerful strong urge to poke fun at Akron for this I can't. First we are not a whole lot better than the Zips. Secondly I'm a bit jealous that they are making a common sense move to get some more money going into that program.
Beer at the games, if you somehow make sure its not getting out of hand, can be a pretty good revenue stream for these universities.

Byron Mulkey Pulling An 'Antonio Gates' To The NFL: Does He Have A Chance? - Hustle Belt
I really don't know, but it stands to reason that if you're trying out for a team without a guaranteed contract, your odds of making the 53-man roster is mighty slim. I can tell you his senior season stat line: 13.1 points, 4.5 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 2.5 steals. He was an everything man (except blocks) for the Bulls.
