Found December 21, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
There are two things folks in Starkville very much enjoy: watching college football and rattling cowbells.Well, the Southeastern Conference has decided to proverbially rain on their parade by smacking the school with a $25,000 fine for using cowbells during games. The conference claims the Bulldogs faithful violated the league's artificial noisemaker policy for a second time. The last violation occurred in 2010.Mississippi State fans aren't necessarily banned from bringing cowbells inside the stadium on game day. However, the league mandates that they only use the cowbells at approved times, which apparently the SEC deemed fans did not last season.Ole Miss, Auburn, and Missouri were also hit with fines from the conference due to violating the league's field access policy. Basically, each school is being punished for having its fans rush the field after a respective victory.Via ESPN
