    I can dig this.

    The student section would go nuts.

    For those who have tired of "What Does the Fox Say?", good news. You only have to put up with it for another home game. Every season the Gopher Football game production grabs onto what most would consider a dumb, novelty type song. Two years ago it was "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO. Last year it was "Gangnam Style". This year we have the Fox. Next year it'll be something else. If the students like it, then so be it.

    As for "Sweet Caroline", if the fans get up and sing and have fun, then it should long continue. The lack of atmosphere and people sitting on their hands has long been a complaint of many. Since we have a song that people get into, there's no reason to stop. So what if Badgers fans think it's their song. Sing alongs to this tune predate Camp Randall in stadiums and in bars and parties in general. For anyone to think otherwise is absurdly delusional. This isn't like the time they played "Jump Around" against Wisconsin at the Dome, a move that almost had me ready to rush the control booth in anger. I'm not a Neil Diamond fan in the slightest, but the appeal of "Sweet Caroline" is impossible to deny.

    As for the idea of the song getting played as a dig at Penn State over the scandal, I'd buy that the fan who voted for it potentially had that in mind as an in joke. However, the folks in the U of M athletic department and game production staff come off as generally unaware enough that the reference was likely neither intentional or even noticed on their part. Had someone caught it, I think they might have skipped the tune in order to not possibly insult the visiting Penn State dignitaries.

    The canned music is deafening and generally awful - almost as awful as the announcer ("ANOTHER GOPHER FIRST DOWN!"). I remember when the only noise came from the band - much better.

    Sweet Caroline is Wisconsin's song?

    I think of the Red Sox more than Wisconsin when it is at a sporting event.

    We're 8-2. Guess we have to start bitchin about somethin.
    Remember that postcard Grandpa sent us from Florida of that Alligator biting that woman's bottom? That's right, we all thought it was hilarious. But, it turns out we were wrong. That alligator was sexually harrassing that woman.

    We are Minnesotans, we're supposed to be relatively intelligent. They're treating us like we're from Iowa or Wisconsin.
    I agree, take the training wheels off. Great cheer.

    Yep. Agree all the way

    And yes I was shocked when they played Sweet Caroline with PSU visiting. I believe that PSU has not allowed this to be played at their home games correct?

    Also, would take Sweet Caroline over the Fox song any day.

    I'd rather sit in complete silence than hear Sweet Caroline. It's so stale at sporting events it's downright embarrassing.

    If we could only get 1/2 our fans getting into the games like this intro.

    Embrace our environment...."North Country" by Rocket Club

    You are entering....NORTH COUNTRY!

    Ok maybe not a end of 3rdQ song but they've played it during timeouts before. Hope they continue to do so.
