SEC fines South Carolina $25,000 for fan rush.


If you think the NFL is the No Fun League, think again. The SEC is trying to steal that title away from the pros. The SEC has levied a $25,000 fine against South Carolina after fans rushed the court after Tuesday night's victory over first-place Kentucky. This on top of a previous $5,000 fine after a similar win against Kentucky in 2005. The next fan rush would levy a $50,000 fine.
It seems the SEC is cracking down on any expressions of accomplishment on the field or on the court. It's just a matter of time before they get anal over things like socks or messages in the eyeblack.

I understand why there is a rule in place that prohibits fans from storming the court, but seriously why would they care if the school gets fined? They were just exuberant over the fact that their team pulled a huge upset of a top-ranked opponent.
