    The Curse of Sweet Caroline

    Played before 4th Q on two games this year and both losses. Coincidence, I think not. Needs to be designated for only post game celebrations.

    Re: The Curse of Sweet Caroline

    There are two circumstances in which Sweet Caroline should be played:

    1) In between the 3rd and 4th quarters IF Iowa State is in the lead
    2) After an Iowa State win

    Only #2, never ever during a game.

    Hate to do this, but I think Sweet Caroline should follow the same rules as KU uses for the Rock Chalk chant...

    Wrong. Only number 2 is the correct answer.

    Re: The Curse of Sweet Caroline

    Sweet Caroline should only be played after a win. I don't know why they keep playing it when we are losing..it's making me hate the song now

    Yep. These have been the standard 'rules' for this song, preferably only if we're up big for #1.

    Yep I told my buddy "What CF freak out if it's played and we are behind. And here it is.

    The only correct times for it to be played are as follows:

    Re: The Curse of Sweet Caroline

    Play it after a win or if we are blowing out a team at the end of the 3rd. Still, I would prefer that they just play it after a W.

    How freaking hard is it to do that?
