    Sweet Caroline Curse Strikes Again

    How many times do we have to do this. 3 home games, in the game or a lead, played SC and a loss everytime. Save it for after or not at all. P.S. why do they think we give a flying rats rear to see highlights of Missouri and Auburn during our game?

    Yup. Sweet Caroline should be a victory song. Jinxes it every other time.

    Worst song ever. I would rather listen to New Kids on the Block. They should play Rhinestone Cowboy instead of Sweet Caroline.

    They keep playing it cause of all the ****tards that cheer/stand up and dance when it's played. It's ******* embarrassing and is by far the idiotic thing ever done at a football game. Sorry had to get that off my chest...I really hate that song.

    I agree that it should only be played after a victory. Otherwise, NOT a song that belongs at a football game.

    stop that song now. It's lame, annoying and not a stadium song to pump anyone up. Women and old fans seem to like it so it serves a purpose in that regard.

    I don't love or hate Sweet Caroline but I do love people who hate Sweet Caroline. These are my favorite threads.

    Would you settle for band featuring a Slash, Peter Criss, & Elvis impersonators performing a cover?

    You're embarrassed because other people are enjoying a song? Sounds sane.

    Re: Sweet Caroline Curse Strikes Again

    Personally I hate the song, but it's obvious that a lot of people like it (especially the oldsters) so I can live with it. But it should absolutely not be played until the game is won. It should be a tradition associated with winning, not simply being in a competitive game going into the fourth quarter. They should play something a little more raucous during the break before the fourth quarter.

    All of this said, I freely admit to my bias that everything sucks when you're losing. If we're 7-2 right now they could probably play the intro to My Little Pony between quarters and I wouldn't care.

    The conference approved schools showing highlights of other games trying to fight the overall downturn in attendance nation wide. I think the thought was folks are staying home to watch games and if they could see some highlights while at a game maybe that would help. I don't think it will work but it's something they can try that doesn't cost anything.
