Sweet Caroline Dropped From Penn State Game Days

Neil Diamond's song Sweet Caroline will no longer be played at Penn State football games.

It was a common song in their game day playlist but many people believe they dropped it because of the lyrics "touching me, touching you."

Penn State is obviously denying that as the reason. Associate athletic director Greg J. Myford said the lyrics were discussed but that wasn't the real reason it was dropped, saying in a statement:

"Sweet Caroline has been brought up in recent years as to whether or not it should remain a part of the playlist. We hear from fans each year on whether or not we should continue it, given that it happens to be played in so many other professional and collegiate venues and has no real origination here at Penn State."

So Penn State just happened to decide right now to update their playlist.

We guess it's as a good a time as any to change things up.

The old system at Penn State is tarnished, things need to change if the school wants to survive.

Do U think that Penn State made the right call by dropping the song??
