    DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    South Carolina celebration after win over Kentucky costs school $25,000 - ESPN

    $25,000 fine for the fans storming the court after knocking off number 1? A little harsh IMO.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Re: DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    That's pretty weak. Did anybody see the guys on ESPN getting all high-and-mighty about when its appropriate to rush the court last Saturday? Did these guys forget that sports is still supposed to be about everybody having fun?

    Re: DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    Does the Big 12 have anything like this. I remember way way way back in the day when we used to upset highly ranked teams, the per mar security guys would line the court so no one could run on to it. Didn't know if it was University policy or Big 12 policy. I'm guessing University/Hilton policy because we rush the field all the time in football.

    The University's standpoint on rushing the court is the continued employment of Coach McDermott. As long as he is here, they wont have to worry about it .

    Re: DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    Honestly I don't have a problem with not allowing people to rush the court. There have been injuries and it's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Agree. $25k is a serious fine.

    I don't think I recall ISU ever rushing the court. Has it ever happened?

    Now with the students located in CycloneAlley instead of dispersed throughout the crowd, I would assume the chances are much greater that a big upset could cause this to happen.

    Re: DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    I think Iowa State fans would pool together $25,000 just for a reason to rush the floor again.

    I have been going to games since the 2000-2001 season and I only remember rushing the floor once...2005(?) against Texas when they were ranked #8.

    Even the 2001 game where ISU beat KU when both teams were in the top 10, I don't think anyone rushed the floor.

    Re: DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    Fine for rushing the court -- $25,000

    Seeing your team beat the No. 1 ranked team -- priceless

    Re: DON'T RUSH THE COURT SEC FANS

    I saw in an article on Yahoo Sports that people were trying to hand the AD money to pay the fine for rushing the court. The AD said in the article not to worry about, they would take care of it.

    I would say its worth rushing the court considering they are unranked and beat the #1 team.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Lame. I recall rushing the court at the aforementioned Texas game. That is the only game I can recall anyone ever rushing the court.
