Stoops on field rushing fine: “We didn’t get our money’s worth”

Yesterday, the SEC fined Kentucky $100,000 for fans rushing the field after the win over Mississippi State, which seems pretty ridiculous when you consider only a hundred or so students trickled onto the turf when the horn sounded. Mark Stoops agrees.

We feel like we didn’t get our money’s worth because only a few fans leaked out there,” Stoops said on Taz & The Moose on CBS Sports Radio. “We won by 21 points, so it wasn’t that dramatic. But those are good problems to have, I guess.”

As you can see in this video from UK superfan and former calendar entrepreneur John Spalding, it really wasn’t that dramatic:

The mood on the field was similarly tame:

This was the second time Kentucky fans have “stormed the field” in recent years, hence the $100,000 fine. Fans did a proper storm after the win over South Carolina in 2014. If it happens again, the program will have to fork over $250,000. Totally worth it when we beat Georgia, right?

      SC isn’t worth $250k on their best day. Now UGA?

    Beat ga and just do a gofundme account. I think all of bbn can cover 250k. That’s like a penny a fan. We better pack couches in and have cars ready to flip for that price this time. Go cats!

    From those videos, I think UK needs to get after their security detail for not doing their job. Seems those folks bailed in the rain is why 50-100 made it down
