    It beats the heck out of the Seven Nations Army chant every Big 10 school chants into the ground. I used to like that song, but holy Jesus, it's overdone. Just stop. Penn State, I'm talking to you especially.

I can see why he has no interest in hearing it any more. No biggie. I forever tie it to the Boston Red Sox and their curse-busting World Series win so it just feels like a rip off when I hear it at other sporting events. Plus I am not a Neil Diamond fan so it doesn't do anything for me, either.

    So, you're racist? I see.

    Re: ESPN: 'If I ruled college hoops

    Love the 'clones.

    HATE Sweet Caroline. Pretty much for the same reason the writer states. Written about Caroline Kennedy - pretty sure she has no ties to ISU. Sung by Neil Diamond. Pretty much sure he has no ties to ISU. And he sucks.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    They'll need to recruit very effectively nationally, after Omaha/Lincoln there are basically no people to the north and west until you hit the Rockies…I lived in central Neb for 6 years and can attest to that. To the south is KU/KSU/OKs/OU, to the east is ISU/Iowa/Missouri/Minn…all eight of those traditionally better programs in traditionally better talent regions and I'm assuming Creighton falls off so make it 9 if they don't.

    Will be interesting to see how their Creighton/Husker football fans show up the first year they're not good and the arena isn't new. Will be interesting to see Creighton attendance if they fall off too and how it may relate to Neb finally being good.

    Most good songs have ties to ISU?

    No, but if you're going to pick a "signature" song it would be nice if it had some thematic tie in to your school. Or your state/region of the country. Or at the very least, the song didn't kind of suck.

    Unfortunately Sweat-Karo-Line misses on ALL 3.
