    F#%^%^& Neil Diamond...And Caroline, too!

    Is anyone else as freakin' annoyed with our music reprtoire/selection and the the timing of the person playing them?

    The most intense time of the evening and our team could come on the field for the biggest play of the night and they play...

    Sweet Caroline!

    We got hippies hugging in the aisles and hands waving ...oh yeah, and then, GET LOUD!

    I know we may not have a real deep list of songs we can throw in at that time, but at least play Thunderstruck or something that will get people yelling and clapping...

    Am I the only one feeling this way?


    And don't get me started on the band playing through the snap...

    I'm all for hippie-huggin', just not at the most important point of the game (up to that point). Cut the 60s geezer pop music, and play something that pumps the crowd, and the team.

    Agree totally. Ain't enough a in laaaaaaaaaaaaaame to describe it.

    Student section seems to enjoy the song.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Better than Wayne Newton or Bing Crosby...or New York New York. Check out the big programs and let us emulate their music.

    I think that's a pretty big hit, people seem to sing along to it. Thunderstruck would not get me pumped up, since you can't go to an arena in America without hearing the freaking song.

    Yeah, I was in the student section. It kind of ****** me off. I think some big parts of why it looked like the student section liked it are: girls, guys who really aren't into football, guys who are into football that are also hammered.

    It was the most crucial, least carefree part of the game. And what is with the cannon seemingly randomly firing?

    I don't think it would have been a problem, had it been played oh... any time other than when it was. What a snoozer for such a critical time in the game.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    I agree, it's an alright song, but the timing was bad.

    that's true, it shouldn't've been played at that particular moment, but I don't they should get rid of it altogether.

    Re: F#%^%^& Neil Diamond...And Caroline, too!

    Whats with the state of Iowa and sappy songs at the end of the 3rd qtr? Iowa plays Hey Jude, we play Neil Diamond. I think they should play Afternoon Delight. No wonder our defense falls asleep in the 2nd half.

    Re: F#%^%^& Neil Diamond...And Caroline, too!

    It ****** me off. I was like are you freakin' serious? Come on. Maybe it was for a psychological effect so we didn't want to kill the officials for taking forever to make a call. Play some AC/DC, Metallica, something heavy then, not freakin' Sweet Caroline. On a sidenote, the only thing I can think of when I hear Neil Diamond is that Will Farrell sketch of him; it is freakin' hilarious. "Wait, don't go! This next song's about how once, I killed a drifter to get an erection..."
