Improving the gameday atmosphere at Heinz Field for Pitt games is something that’s been discussed for years.
Probably the thing that most fans know about being at a Pitt home game is the playing of Neil Diamond’s classic Sweet Caroline.
However, not everyone is a fan. The song is used by multiple other schools, including North Carolina and Iowa State. It’s a popular song in pro sports as well, particularly in Boston with the Red Sox and Carolina with the Panthers. And of course it was a mainstay at Penn State football games until it was dropped in 2012 after the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
Check out the tweet last night from former Pitt linebacker Matt Galambos.
In order for Pitt to truly “re-brand” and take that next step…we must end Sweet Caroline and move on…
