    Damn Neil Diamond

    Things were going just fine, then they play **** caroline and we have a crap punt and a seven point game. I think more and more people are just sitting down and doing nothing when they play that. I know it's been a thread a thousand times, sorry.

    Don't forget about the wave going around the entire stadium as our team has a 3rd and 15 from our own 20 yard line. Nice timing fans.

    Re: Damn Neil Diamond

    I brought a friend to his first ISU game last night. After that song played, he turned to me and said, "wow, I cant believe they just played that, I wont be suprised if the players from each team starting hugging each during the next play."



    He also noted how terrible the sound system was.

    Re: Damn Neil Diamond

    By my estimation that was the song that the most people in the stands enjoy, based on reactions anyways. Now take when they played Thunderstruck for example, that took all the fun in the stadium out back, beat it with a stick and left it for dead.

    Re: Damn Neil Diamond

    Sweet Caroline is here to stay, whether we like it or not, because 95% of the student body sings along and it looks good. And no, we are not the only team in the nation to sing this song during a football game.

    Re: Damn Neil Diamond

    After the game while we were driving home and listening to Cyclone Reaction with Chris Williams and Jack Whitver (btw -thanks to those two for putting this on) Jack had said that they had played Sweet Caroline after half time of I think it was the colorado game that it just so happened to go on just as the opposing team was coming onto the field...I really think that that is what they need to do - if they are going to continue to play it...just a thought!

    Am I the only one that enjoys watching the student section singing and dancing to this song? I realize it isn't a very "football" song, but it does add excitement.

    Exactly... i still dont understand dissing it so much. The whole student section gets into it and I notice that even after the song plays the next few minutes it seems like the whole group is more vocal in the game. I think its dumb to think about taking it away, its not like the players are thinking oh man this isn't a football song, i'm going to hit a lot less hard now. The thing that was really dumb was the wave going on during a 3rd and long, you could tell Arnaud was pretty frustrated with us when the fans were doing that.

    They should play it coming out of halftime. That is when the stadium needs a little jolt. It was a mausoleum after halftime. 20,000 fans leave at half and 10,000 never come back (just don't come at all, losers). Sweet Caroline is great, people get into it. Play it to start the third quarter, wake up the crowd.

    Suppose he may have been frustrated that they had a 3rd and long?

    Well i'm sure that didn't help but he was waving his hands down.... AKA telling the fans to shut up.
