The "irony" of State's cowbell tradition
quote:

State's cowbell tradition dates to the 1930s, according to stories published in the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger, after the Bulldogs beat rival Ole Miss, a game that featured a jersey cow that wandered onto the playing field.

Students adopted the cow and cowbell as good-luck charms, the newspaper reported.


quote:

All-time record 549–569–39 (.491)
Conference titles 1 (1941)
Division titles 1 (1998)


Maybe their definition of "lucky" is different than mine, but a sub-.500 record all time along with 1 conference title and 1 division title in 76 years doesn't sound very damn lucky to me.....

And edit: They live in Starkville....that isn't very lucky either.

Can't imagine how much worse this would have looked if State didn't hire Merlins.

Not to mention they're cheaters. Artificial noisemakers are forbidden in college stadiums.

and their division title was in the year that everyone in the West decided to suck except for Arkansas and Moo State.

Stingray looks like he could drop dead any day due to some obesity caused illness.

Is he the illegitimate brother (or maybe legitimate, who knows) of that Kige Ramsey fella?

I've seen more cows on River Road by Tiger Stadium and Alex Box than I've ever seen in my 4 years in Starkville.

I can understand opposing fans hate for them. I stopped carrying one cause it's just something to keep up with. I've said for years that it's only annoying for people because they don't have em. It really is an unfair advantage, cause 60,000 of them bitches really are loud af.

I don't hate them, and our record vs msu would say they make no difference at all.

My question was your mascot is a bulldog, so where the frick do cowbells come from?

The story is posted in OP...Everyone had cows on campus 100 years ago, one of ours just happened to wander near the field and it resulted in a come from behind win against Ole Miss.

Well, technically, they're only cheaters if they do this after the teams line up, same as piped in music. The SEC were cheaters when they decided to allow them to have these provided they abide by the aforementioned rule. WHich they always do , right?

Fans do a good job of resting their bells during pre-snap.
