Cowbells, not allowed. Themed t-shirts and hashtags, still universally accepted
There has been a message going around via a UMAA email and Twitter, circulated by a number of Ole Miss-centric folk that focuses on trying to prevent Mississippi State fans from bring any illegal percussion instruments into the stadium in Oxford for the Egg Bowl this weekend. Fans are encouraged to report any unwanted cowbell ringing thusly:
In the event that cow bells are smuggled in, please report the section, row and seat number to the nearest UPD officer or usher. You can also send a text to 69050 with the message: “Rebs cowbell [insert section and row]“
Given that Oxford is full of nothing but frat guys and lawyers, one must assume that violators of the “no cowbell” policy will be drug into the streets, beaten to the edge of death by North Face back packs full of widespread bootlegs and New Balance 999′s…and then prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
