UK President Eli Capilouto Bans Alcohol From Some Tailgating Spots For Saturday

UK president Dr. Eli Capilouto banned alcohol for some tailgaters for the South Carolina at Kentucky game this Saturday:

"A small number of people acted in a manner that seriously threatened the safety of those around them and of police and other safety officials who are there to protect us all," the message said. "Such behavior will not be tolerated."

As a result, Capilouto said, there will be increased police presence in the non-reserved tailgating space along Cooper Drive between Sports Center Drive and University Drive. No alcohol will be allowed in the area, and no bands or DJs will be allowed to set up there.

If you are wondering what all this is in response to, check out this story over at John Clay's site which includes video of one of the fights that happened during the Western Kentucky game. That is, if you don't mind seeing some jerk kick a guy in the head a couple of times after he gives up.
