Mark Stoops offers interesting suggestion on how to combat Mississippi State's cowbells
Mississippi State’s Davis-Wade Stadium may not be the loudest or toughest play to play in the SEC, but it’s the most excruciating — if that makes sense.
If you have ever been to a game in Starkville, Mississippi, as an opposing fan, you know how annoying the cowbells are.
Bulldogs fans ring them constantly from the morning tailgates all the way through the late-night celebrations. It’s never-ending during the game.
With Kentucky getting set to make the trip to Starkville on Saturday, Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops addressed this issue on his radio show Monday evening.
Like many others, Stoops probably agrees that the cowbells are annoying.
When asked by a fan if he can hear them on the sideline, and if they are distracting, Stoops laughingly replied, “yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.”
He acknowledged that State’s ringing of the cowbells are a great tradition, but offered an interesting suggestion on how to rattle State the next time it comes to Lexington:
Stoops on the cowbells: “Maybe when Mississippi State comes here we’ll get air horns.”

Stoops may be on to something with the air horns, but he’ll have to wait until next year to try them out.
The Wildcats and Bulldogs kick off at 4 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.
