    sweet caroline

    IMO has gotta go. Why copy the red sox? Not original at all.

    Re: sweet caroline

    Look at the reaction and see how the students, and all fans get into it.

    No matter if someone else used it, it is also associated with us now.

    Where it began, I can't begin to......

    Re: sweet caroline

    So you couldn't find anything positive to bring to the board after a great victory? Maybe you need to go.

    I hate the song, but it is ok to play after wins. NEVER during a game.

    Re: sweet caroline

    Thousands that have enjoyed it at MBB and FB games disagree.

    I thought a world of positives. I LOVE this team, and think that they have a very good chance to win many more games. I also will not go. I was a freshman at ISU when the magic began with the Barry Stevens beating Mizzou in 1983. Just not nuts about the song or us copying the red sox.

    If you think the Red Sox started Sweet Caroline you are crazy. The sawks started playing that song in the 8th inning in 2002.

    Next you'll tell me the Bulls stole the Alan Parsons Project song from the Huskers.

    This is how may feelings are towards it as well.

    I guess after the game I don't really mind it - but that song has no place during any game ever.

    Re: sweet caroline

    Is there anywhere we can watch the fans and Sweet Caroline after the game?

    Re: sweet caroline

    I really don't understand the dislike for Sweet Caroline. The students get into it, and it sounds awesome hearing everyone get into it. Instead of just criticizing it, maybe you should think of something to take its place....and I will bet you cannot come up with anything that gets the response that Sweet Caroline does.

    A unique song that gets both the young and the blue hairs involved..it will not be going anywhere.
