    Damn Sweet Caroline

    Everybody's missing the real reason we lost. Sweet Caroline after 3rd quarter, only supposed to be after a win at the end of the game. Jinxed us on two home conference games.

    Who really cares what's played? A certain segment that's probably the most vital to the gameday noise enjoys it. Play Lady Gaga for all I care if it gets them up and excited (and I H-A-T-E Lady Gaga).

    I couldn't believe it hadn't been addressed yet and I just couldn't stand it any longer.

    The real Jinx is the guy that made a thread this week talking about how we haven't had very many injuries, and then James White turns up with a knee injury today.

    At least Jared Barnett and Steele Jantz will never get injured and we'll have to put in Sam Richardson

    Re: Damn Sweet Caroline

    Completely agreed OP. Last year it was moved to being a victory song for both fb and big mbb wins and it was great. Before that it was only when we were winning after 3 quarters. Not sure why the scoreboard operator is forcing it into every game this year.

    Sweet Caroline has no place in a football game. What do you want the players to do skip and dance across the field? geesh!!!!

    Re: Damn Sweet Caroline

    If we are up 10, fine. Playing it down 10 is embarrassing. And nobody loves Sweet Caroline more than I do. But it is supposed to be for when we are riding high and feeling good, not losing by two scores. It totally cheapens it.

    Better switch to this if we're down


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
