You have been warned, friends.
… The vuvuzela, heard prominently during the World Cup this summer, has become a popular topic of conversation and frustration. The sound is relentless and, when played by thousands in a stadium, one may mistake the sound for a swarm of killer bees.
But how does this affect you?
This instrument, no matter how irritating to some, will not be banned from SEC games this upcoming season, according to the SEC. The instrument of choice in South Africa, which may or may not catch on here in the states, can be brought into stadiums across the league.
The vuvuzela, along with any artificial noisemaker, will fall under the revamped guidelines of the Mississippi State cowbell, according to SEC associate commissioner Charles Bloom. Fans are only allowed to use the cowbells (or vuvuzelas) during pregame, between quarters, halftime, timeouts, after scores and during possession changes.
SEC noize, baybee!
