Penn State's well-known Jerry Sandusky scandal has gotten less attention since the trial, but one report shows that Penn State's sporting program is dealing with yet another sporting issue.
TMZ reports that the song "Sweet Caroline" is now banned from football games at the stadium.
The Neil Diamond classic was a popular game day song at the venue, as with many other sporting events around the country, but because of potentially inappropriate lyrics, is no longer allowed at Penn State.
The media outlet reports that since the Sandusky trial, the "touching me, touching you" portion of the song is no longer an acceptable sing-along tune.
TMZ raised the question that if "Sweet Caroline" is inappropriate for Penn State games, should the same song standards be held elsewhere?
