Mississippi State fined $25,000 for fans ringing cowbells at football games

The Mississippi State Bulldogs have reportedly been fined $25,000 by the SEC. Apparently, the league feels that fans have not been “ringing responsibly” when it comes to using cowbells for celebration.

Per the team’s website, the following instances are the only times when fans can ring cowbells:

  • When State scores!
  • Quarter Breaks
  • Pre-game
  • Timeouts
  • Halftime

Fines for excessive noisemaking range from $5,000 on the first offense, up to $25,000 on second offense. For every time after that, program’s receive up to a $50,000 fine.

Considering Mississippi State has the world’s largest cowbells in its football facility, they should just own the fines. If it helps win games and keeps fans happy, what’s a few extra thousand dollars per year for a major university? I’m telling you, fellas, you’re gonna want that cowbell.
