    Like it or not, Sweet Caroline is not going away. If it was, it'd be gone by now.

    ISU athletics did a thing a few years back trying to find a new song and they played a new at each game. I clearly remember CCR Bad Moon Rising as one. Keep Sweet Caroline got more votes than all of them.

    They only play it if we are ahead going into the 4th Q. I think we were down 14 at that point last week.

    Everyone plays Sweet Caroline. It's not a very original concept. I'd like to see ISU pick a song that's a little more original rather than copy what every other team does.

    Have we had a week this year where we haven't had a Sweet Caroline thread?

    Re: Instead of Sweet Caroline...

    Have we had a week this year where we haven't had a Sweet Caroline thread?
    And every week it is played, the students and crowd really get into it. Last week did nothing to get the crowd up. Leave the song alone!

    Yeah, and they played Living on a Prayer instead. Maybe I am reading too much into it but that doesn't exactly suggest confidence in the team.

    Re: Instead of Sweet Caroline...

    I think not playing Sweet Caroline helped the team make a comeback in the 4th quarter.

    Sweet Caroline is ONLY played if we are leading after the 3rd quarter.
