    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.

    Oh man, you'd hate my tribute band "Diamonds in the Rough".

    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.

    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.

    To me it looks like the whole student section gets involved - maybe "oldsters" means something different than what I think??

    Don't recall saying anything about how oldsters like it and students don't.

    Understood - I just don't like it when people call out the old folks. These people have been supporting ISU longer than many on this board have been alive - they have suffered through countless losing seasons - they deserve some respect.

    I want to see those highlights. Hell, I wish they'd play more highlights more often throughout the game so I can watch good teams playing football to get a break from watching our team. As someone already mentioned, I'm tempted to stay home to watch the other games that are on in our timeslot. Not saying that these quick highlights they play are keeping me going to games, but it's nice to see what else is happening across the country.

    Who's calling anyone out? I observed that they especially like the song. Don't look for an insult where there isn't one.
