    Big 12 bans noise makers

    One of Oklahoma State's biggest home-field advantages has taken a hit. OSU’s Paddle People no longer can bang their boards against the padded side walls of Boone Pickens Stadium, at least while the opposing offense is trying to function.

    Big 12 athletic directors passed a rule Wednesday that, effective immediately, prohibits artificial noise-makers at football games while the ball is in play or the offense is at the line of scrimmage.


    The rule bans all artificial noise-makers in conference sponsored sports in which NCAA rules are silent. Existing in-stadium traditions – like the Paddle People or Texas Tech’s bell-ringing – falls under the “Band/Audio Play” provisions of the Big 12. Bands and in-house music are not allowed during game action or after the offense has reached the line of scrimmage.

    It shouldn't but the horn was taken many times when it lived in the student section. All he does with it now is the first down cheer, so technically he is blowing it when our offense is at the LOS, but it would be laughable if a ref threw a flag on the home crowd when the home team is on offense

    Time to go to the opposing team's stadium. Bring airhorns and set them off when ISU is at the line. It's a brilliant idea and we get 15 yards every time.

    I would bet this penalty never gets called.

    I bet, if OSU fans test it against Texas, it will be called right away.
