Tweaking the tradition

The Altoona Mirror explains some of the game day experience changes that will go into effect on 9/1. They seem relatively minor, for the most part.

A few highlights:

1. "Sweet Caroline" is out:

Some concerns by university officials about its lyrics - "touching you touching me" - and the perception of people singing along to them in light of the recent scandal have been expressed.

2. I like this one:

New strength coach Craig Fitzgerald will select pregame music for the football team's stretching exercises. A separate field-level sound system will be used to play that music.

I'm hoping his selections will be something like this:

3. Slight change to the blue bus schedule:

Coaches and players will arrive at Beaver Stadium on blue buses as they have for years, but they'll do so much earlier than in the past. And they will not be in uniform when they exit the buses. For the season opener, a noon start, the buses should pull up outside the south end of the stadium around 9:15 a.m. Players will then exit the buses and change into their uniforms inside the stadium.
