Although it sounds like something made up by a seventh-grade boy, "Show and Blow" is the official name of the new alcohol-related policy for the student section at Wisconsin Badger football games. A student who is ejected for alcohol-related reasons must come to each subsequent game sober if underage or legally sober if of age. Apparently this policy was implemented last year (2007) but I only learned of it this year when the Dean of Students sent a letter to all season ticket holders that explains some changes to the Show and Blow program. Now, after a student is ejected, his or her ticket will be electronically tagged. In subsequent games the holder of that tagged voucher (NOT the person who was previously ejected) will be ushered to a Show and Blow area upon entering the stadium. This has implications for the student ticket resale market, as the electronic tag will be tied to all the vouchers in the season ticket packet in question, and not the offending person at the game.
