    That's stupid. Maybe they should build chain link fence around the entire field.

    It's the rules... Personally, I think rushing the field is dumb...

    That takes all the fun out of everything. They're supposedly cracking down on fans being too obnoxious as well. Before long, we are going to have to sit and watch the game and leave in silence.

    Now that they have one out of their system and are in the Top 25, hopefully they won't feel the "need" to do it again.

    I agree that rushing the field is dumb. People can get seriously injured or worse, and not just the people who run out of the stands. People who stay in the stands can be pushed or trampled by others running by them to get onto the field--I speak from experience.

    That said, I've seen some of the footage of the police officers at ECU wrestling kids to the ground and, in at least one case, punching a kid as mentioned in the linked article. That was also dumb.

    Bottom line: don't rush the field, nobody gets hurt.

    Don't really understand how rushing the field is "dumb". Maybe if you beat SDSU or Kent State.

    It's a memory because you were on the field? Why not just celebrate in the stands? I really don't get the appeal at all...

    You can celebrate off the field: I have fond memories of carrying the goal post down Lincolnway in '97

    How much did that little adventure cost our athletic department?

    BVD might have kept the baseball team if it hadn't been for that incident!

    You're soon to be told to get off your high horse or some crap like that.


    Generally, I see all sides of the issue. Storming the field is a tradition, however it is also unsafe. Universities and conferences are simply trying to avoid lawsuits.

    Re: Conference USA fines ECU $10k

    Euseph Messaih posted this in his blog today on Cyclones.com:

    Or, who can forget last year, when Bret Culbertson kicked us to a win and helped us bring back the Cy-Hawk trophy! Let me tell you, the feeling of having all of our friends and loyal fans storm the field is indescribable. Memories like those are why we play the game and what makes this rivalry so special to me.
    The same feeling goes for the fans. Obviously, it's dangerous. But until the Big 12 or NCAA put stricter regulations on it, I'll be rushing the field.

    Re: Conference USA fines ECU $10k

    I remember being on the field for the win over Nebraska in 2002, I dont remember what happened at the end of the game against Colorado in 2005 that I didnt rush the field on. It's not unsafe, never saw anything even happen the 6 years I was in the student section (2 of them where high school)
