Poll: Should Pitt Dump Sweet Caroline?

Poll: Should Pitt Dump Sweet Caroline?

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.

We’d like to get your opinion on the matter. Should Pitt move on from using Sweet Caroline during every football game? Vote below!

Of all the problems with this program, is sweet caroline even in the top 10?

How about this one for a poll – extension / buyout be damned, should Pitt pull the plug on Narduzzi?

I’ve always found Sweet Caroline to be cheesy in all honesty. I agree with Matt and he was a solid linebacker at Pitt as well. He also made a crucial stop stuffing the Clemson running back Wayne Gallman along with Tyrique Jarrett in the win over Clemson. I voted to get rid of Sweet Caroline. Let’s get a more manly tune going during a football game. Sing some Are You Ready by AC/DC and keep the Neil Diamond on the shelf please.

Pantera… very appropriate. How about Domination or Cemetery Gates?

Any Pantera tune would be welcome. Whichever one you choose is fine with me, Joe. I should have left the Pantera suggestion instead of editing it and putting AC/DC. My memory also failed me when it comes to Pitt stuffing Wayne Gallman in 2016. When I went and checked a clip on YouTube it was actually Taleni and Galambos that stuffed Wayne Gallman.
