(CHRIS) OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY WANTS YOU TO BE MORE TRANSPARENT. AT LEAST WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT YOU BRING INSIDE THE NEW FOOTBALL STADIUM, STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION. FANS MUST HAVE CLEAR BAGS IF THEY WANT TO GET IN. 10 ON YOUR SIDE’S KAYLA GASKINS IS LIVE ON CAMPUS TO EXPLAIN. KAYLA. (KAYLA) AS MONARCH FANS PREPARE FOR THE UPCOMING FOOTBALL SEASON, THERE’S ONE MORE THING TO ADD TO THE SHOPPING LIST– A CLEAR BAG LIKE ONE. ODU OFFICIALS ARE SENDING OUT E-MAILS TO FANS AND POSTING FLYERS AROUND CAMPUS TO HELP GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THE RULE BEFORE GAMEDAY– SO FANS AREN’T SURPRISED AT THE GATE. (KAYLA) SB BALLARD STADIUM IS NEARLY READY TO WELCOME ALL THE MONARCH TOUCHDOWNS. NAT– TOUCHDOWNS. ALL THE CHEERS… NATS CHEERS AND THOUSANDS OF FOOTBALL FANS. I’M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT IT. AS WELL AS AN ARRAY OF NEW SECURITY MEASURES. ODU IS THE LATEST UNIVERSITY TO IMPLEMENT A CLEAR BAG POLICY FOR FANS. I GUESS I WAS ALL FOR IT. WAS OK WITH IT BECAUSE OK AND IT WAS A GOOD THING. UVA, VIRGINIA TECH AND LIBERTY ALL HAVE THE CLEAR BAG RULE. ODU IS THE FIRST LOCAL UNIVERSITY TO IMPLEMENT THE POLICY. 32: 53 HAVING TO GO OUT AND BUY A CLEAR BAG MIGHT BE A NUISANCE BUT I DON’T THINK IT’LL BE TOO MUCH OF A HASSLE. THE BAGS NEED TO BE 12 MUST BE SMALLER THAN 4.5 INCHES. YOU CAN FIND BAGS IN REGULATION AT THE ODU BOOKSTORE FOR $11.95. THE UNIVERSITY BOOKSTORE IS THE ONLY PLACE THAT SELLS THEM AS OF NOW ON CAMPUS. ACCORDING TO ODU’S WEBSITE, THE CLEAR BAG RULE IS CONSIDERED A QUOTE “BEST PRACTICE” IN COLLEGE ATHLETICS. SO WHY WAIT UNTIL NOW TO ADD THE POLICY WHEN OTHER UNIVERSITIES HAVE HAD IT FOR YEARS? THE WEBSITE EXPLAINS THE OLD STADIUM DIDN’T HAVE THE SPACE OR TECHNOLOGY TO HANDLE THE CLEAR BAG POLICY. THE NEW S-B- BALLARD STADIUM DOES. (KAYLA) SO FAR OFFICIALS TELL ME THE CLEAR BAG RULE IS ONLY FOR FOOTBALL. I’M KAYLA GASKINS 10 ON YOUR SIDE. (CHRIS)
