As long as we don't get hit in the head with one when they lose.

I really do not get this.... it is the stadium policy, as is the policy for every stadium I have ever visited.  NO Noisemakers.  Check the Gator Bowl Fan Guide - page 10 or 11.

Is there a rule as to when they can and can not clang those annoying things?  (not that they would adhere to it!)

GO Cats !

Not really.  We can go crazy with them in every home game that is not a conference game.  In SEC play, we have a 'ring responsibly' program where we let fans know when it is appropriate to ring.

From my experience, the only visiting fans to ever really complain about the cowbells are teams that lose.  I think you'll enjoy your time with the people of Mississippi State.  Most of our fans are actual graduates, students, and professors of the university (probably due to our mediocre football history).  You won't have hoards of sidewalk alumni filling the stadium like you might expect from an SEC school.

I got no problem with it. I actually think it is pretty cool... I can understand why a stadium might not like it, but frankly I think people would sneak them in anyway. JUST PLEASE... NO VUVUZELAS

Those bells look like they can do some damage.

you have nothing to fear from the cowbell unless you are seated directly around several people who are ringing them.  It might be annoying then but it will have no effect on the game itself.  If you get around some MSU fans ask them to allow you to ring the bell.  You will be accepted and will have fun as a result.  The cowbell issue is way overrated.

Watch RUDY and you will feel better!

Speaking of a "rape & assault"...the 45-0 Egg Bowl, msu was held to -minus yards rushing the entire game and NO 1st downs in a full half of play and less than 5 for the entire game. The score was closer than the actual game!!! biggrin

See the link...rape & assault??? Methinks not...you sure know that meaning!!! biggrin

... in 2008.  When you still only won 9 games despite having personnel that we can only dream of here at Northwestern (Mike Wallace, Dexter McCluster, Jevan Snead, Brandon Bolden, etc.).

Though I bet you sure had fun beating FCS Central Arkansas, 3-9 UTEP, 2-10 Tulane, 3-9 Auburn, and 4-8 Arkansas this year.  Way to go!

Northwestern fans do not give a flying flip about your little intrastate rivalry down south.  This is getting SERIOUSLY old.

I like your signature quote..."There is no luck except where there is discipline!"  Travel to Ireland/Scotland...and MSU football are among my greatest joys in life.

Admittedly, cowbells may be annoying if they are not something you are accustomed to.  However, cowbells do not often affect play anymore than large crowd noise will.  Bells are a great tradition...I own serveral but don't bring them to games too often anymore.  After a Chick-Fil-A bowl many years ago, I actually gave one to a Clemson fan who was very impressed with the bells.   

Hope the GB is a great game...and in keeping with Irish proverbs: "Bíonn chuile dhuine lách go dtéann bó ina gharraí" ("Everyone is sociable til the cow invades  his garden").  Here's to hoping that our cow(bells) don't get too much into the gardens of NW fans!    Dave, MSUDog, Athens, GA

Apologies...will try not to make that mistake again...

Like I said before, being from up that way I know that NU is a great school, has a beautiful campus and has been an impressive story in terms of your recent football success.  This will be the first bowl game that I  have been unable to attend since I transferred to MSU way back in 1975...hope we send y'all back to Evanston with a loss but I also hope it is an entertaining game.              Dave, MSUDog, Athens, GA
