Boston University has gotten bad press lately: First, there was that pesky incident involving fraternity rushes being cleverly yet brutally hazed with condiments. Now T’s Pub is coming under fire for serving frisky hockey players for free, which has caused plenty of booze-fueled sexual misbehavior.

The Globe notes that T’s Pub is cited in a private report chronicling the team’s exploits, because until recently hockey players could imbibe there without paying. They were also unfettered by annoying protocol like, oh, showing identification. Apparently BU officials have approached the bar’s owners with concerns, but they can’t really control them since they’re an independent bar, not beholden to BU’s rules.

Which begs the question: Does free-flowing alcohol make people behave badly? Or does it just reveal the true nature of the drinker? Thoughts?
