Bakergate is the name given to the 2005 Baker Field controversy involving M. Dianne Murphy's decision to restrict alcohol at football games, as well as a number of other policy changes that adversely affected the existence of a student-organized tail-gating presence at football games. This led to an endless series of redundant Spec articles and editorials (with the "Bakergate" monicker) followed by the student government bodies coming together to act important in blowing student life fees on cheap t-shirts reading "support the team, not the policy" that were distributed during homecoming. The university responded in 2006 by distributing free beer prior to games at a practice field adjacent to Wien Stadium. Alcohol still could not be brought into the stadium, and all students were subject to two searches upon entry.
