SEC Fines Miss St. For Excessive Cowbell



The SEC has fined Auburn, Missouri and Ole Miss for their fans storming the field after big wins this year. But Mississippi State got slapped with a hefty fine for more cowbell. Per USA Today Sports...
quote:

Mississippi State has a tradition where fans ring cowbells to cheer on their team. However, there are rules about where and when to ring. Fans are reminded to “ring responsibly” during games. They’re only allowed to ring at home games and only during pregame, timeouts, halftime and after the Bulldogs score. All other times, cowbells must remain silent.

But the Bulldogs misbehaved this season and now have to pay a $25,000 fine for defying the SEC’s Artificial Noisemaker Policy, conference commissioner Mike Slive announced Friday.

The SEC approved the use of artificial noisemakers at football games played on campuses whose teams use noisemakers as part of their school tradition. Under the policy, the school must submit a plan to Slive, explaining how they will use these props in compliance with SEC Bylaw 30.22.1.5.

According to the bylaw, violations “shall be evaluated following the season for the imposition of fines as follows: 1st offense: an institutional fine of $5,000; 2nd offense: an institutional fine of up to $25,000; 3rd or subsequent offense: an institutional fine of up to $50,000.”

$25,000? Really? Hardly a penalty that will change behavior.

State doesn't bring in as much as the other schools in the conference, but I'm sure they will just add the fines to the operational budget every year. On 3rd and long it's like having an extra safety on the field.
