    Who cares about who Paul Rhoades hires on his staff? What really matters is whether we play Sweet Caroline.:jimlad:

    I could really go for an update to the entire Jack Trice soundtrack. Jock Jams lost its flavor mid-90s.

    What about Back to the Hotel by N2Deep? That song seriously pumps me up when I hear it. Sipping purple chongos!

    I guess you've never spent 6 weeks locked in a 3' x 3' homemade cage in some sort of make shift dungeon with Sweet Caroline blaring loudly 24/7. It will change you.....trust me.

    Maybe we could play that "Apple bottom jeans and the boots with the fur" song. Everytime I hear that I feel like beating some one up.

    I'm on board with this. And I'd be ok with this trend being started for all rivalry games - or maybe even all of 'em. Play a song poking fun at 'em as they come out.

    There's an old Pat Benetar song where she screams "all fired up" that gets this old man's blood flowing. Can't remember the name of the song tho. But I'm with the crowd that's had enough of "sweet Caroline".

    Nothing says it's the fourth quarter in The Jack like hearing Sweet Caroline. It's who we are, man. Changing that tradition would be nuts, it would be just like changing our logo or our colors. Oh wait...

    From one old man to another :smile: - you're probably thinking of "All Fired Up". Haven't learned to embed yet , maybe the link will work.

    When Iowa takes the field why don't we play Jailhouse Rock by Elvis. Iowa has a great list of players that are familiar with that.
