    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.

    Re: The Curse of Sweet Caroline

    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


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

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

    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?
