The LSU Tigers may have reached new heights with a huge win over the weekend, but that milestone is now being overshadowed by a hefty fine Monday.

Immediately following Saturday night’s victorious game against the Georgia Bulldogs, fans stormed the Death Valley field.

As a result, the Southeastern Conference (SEC) is charging the university a whopping $100,000 fine for at least two violations.

According to ESPN, the league announced the fine on October 15, 2018, citing Saturday’s incident as a second violation of the SEC’s policy against fans on the field.

We’re told the same thing occurred against Mississippi in 2014.

Congressman Garret Graves published a Facebook post  alleging the stampede is a misunderstanding because it was actually an LSU family reunion.

Graves reiterates that this SEC fining is excessive for a fan celebration and encourages supporters to chip in to show that when it comes to winning, LSU is just “fine.”
