    Kentucky fined 50 Grand when students rush field?

    Huh - does this make sense? They just won a triple overtime game and the University gets fined when the students rushed the field. I didn't see the ending; did they rush before time expired? Did they disrupt LSU?

    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The Southeastern Conference fined Kentucky $50,000 Monday for failing to prevent fans from rushing the field after the Wildcats' triple-overtime victory over top-ranked LSU.
    It was the third violation dating back to last year for Kentucky, which was fined $5,000 for the celebration after a win last year against Georgia and $25,000 earlier this year after a victory over Louisville.
    Under the SEC policy, "access to competition areas shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly-credentialed individuals at all times." Universities are held responsible if spectators rush into the competition area.
    Kentucky defeated LSU 43-37 Saturday -- its first victory over a top-ranked team since 1964.

    I'd like to see a few security guys try to stop a mob of students after knocking off the top team in the country....

    Yeah, didn't think so.

    Does the SEC understand how hard that rule is to enforce?

    Dorks. Trying to stop the students would probably cause more problems

    Trying to stop the students from rushing the field is dumb.

    Therefore, the SEC is dumb.

    This might be the most idiotic rule ever...

    I think this rule was put in place after someone was seriously injured in a pile on a BBall court a few years back...can anyone verify?

    CFB: SEC fines Kentucky $25,000 for fans rushing field - The Honolulu Advertiser - Hawaii's Newspaper
    sounds like Kentucky has problems with the rule, This story says that the rule in the SEC was started in 2004 and Kentucky had already broke the violation when they rushed the frield after beating Georgia.

    Re: Kentucky fined 50 Grand when students rush field?

    stupid. students should keep rushing the field all across the country...they'll soon realize the rule is dumb, it's basically impossible to enforce, and if they DID try to overuse force to stop people, it will probably end up like VEISHEA. Can the stupid rule and the stupid fines, almost nothing ever bad happens when people storm the field, I've done it every year for like the past 4 years. Nebraska '04, Iowa '05, Missouri '06, Iowa '07 with little to no incident. Don't let storming end just from a freak accident.

    The SEC should have fined LSU for losing. It was their best chance for a title team.

    One time a big mad nebraska football player decked an Oklahoma fan.....that was pretty interesting. That was the day Bill called Oklahoma fans those fuc*** hillbillies. That was pretty exciting.

    If I was Clones staff, I would gladly take the fine if they rushed the field.

    Re: Kentucky fined 50 Grand when students rush field?

    Yeeeeeeeeeah... about that.


    Rushing the field is a topic that gets discussed in the front rows of the student section every year... and it's always the same.

    If we reeeeeeeally wanted on that field, they don't have a snowball's chance in hell of stopping us. Yes, people can get hurt when the field gets rushed (I know, I saw someone get knocked over and tried to block traffic to keep them from getting run over - rather unsuccesfuly I might add) I bet a lot more people get hurt when they try to stop people though... so you've got to go with the lesser of 2 evils


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    I believe it was at some high school basketball game, the students rushed and one of the players heart failed as a result, however this was mostly caused by an undetected previous condition. So, it really was just a freak accident but the students rushing the court was illogically blamed. Granted, it was a shame what happened to the kid, but from the looks of it, it was coming at some point anyway. Just your typical overreaction that we seem to get daily nowadays.

    Re: Kentucky fined 50 Grand when students rush field?

    A couple years ago the SEC had a real problem with students rushing the field/court. In a couple different basketball games kids got hurt and in the football games not only were students/players getting hurt but the students were raiding the sidelines stealing equiptment.
