UW students ejected from Badger football games for drunken rowdiness can get a second chance. Assistant Dean of Students "Kipp" Cox says the "Show and Blow" program allows those students to gain admission by taking a breath test. The program impacts only students who have been ejected from Camp Randall for alcohol-related reasons, requiring them to come to all subsequent games completely sober if they are underage or legally sober if they are of age.
Cox says the program, formally in place for today's game with Ohio State, has been tried informally for a couple of years. "The feedback we were receiving from the students themselves, even without asking them, was that they were actually having more coming to the games sober," says Cox. Cox says expulsions for excessive drinking at Camp Randall stadium have actually been down for the first couple of games this season.
