    Has Sweet Caroline ever been played in a close game going into the 4th and we win?

    I'm the superstitious type....gotta quit playing that going into the 4th quarter. Save it for victory celebration. Damn song is a jinx in close games.

    The source of my pain at ISU games used to be Jeff Johnson cheer time, but it has now become Sweet Caroline going into the 4th.

    Save the song for victories only.....please.





    Pretty please.

    Agreed it should only be played after wins. Otherwise it just sucks and is lame as hell.

    I don't remember playing it going into the 4th against OSU last year. Can somebody validate this claim? I do know we played it after we won because I have video of that. In between the 3rd and 4th though???? Hmmmm.

    i am 99% sure they played it between 3rd and 4th quarter of last year against osu and fed into the techno beat desert storm. Then they played desert storm right before the onside kick I think.

    STOP playing the stupid song!! It is not a song that fires up the stadium, in my opinion, other than I guess the women like it.

    Being superstitious, I was more upset about the pre-mature cannon firing when they thought Lenz caught the touchdown and shortly after was the Woody fumble.

    I agree. I've really grown to hate the song, regardless of circumstances. But I accept that it's become a tradition so I can live with it. BUT ONLY AFTER A WIN AND NOT UNTIL THEN. We should be firing up the crowd for the 4th quarter not putting them to sleep with Sweet Caroline.

    I said something similar after the K State game. Going into crunch time and the stadium is rocking to...a soft rock song about JFK's daughter? I'm going to email Jamie Pollard right now.
