Neil Diamond Anthem Axed At Penn State

Neil Diamond Sweet Caroline anthem has not been supported by Penn State football programme's game day festivities because they have some concern that lyrics are inappropriate following the U.S. school's recent sex scandal.

The tone had adopted during matches in Beaver Stadium but officials fear lyrics like "Touching me/Touching you" are not suitable in the wake of the scandal which resulted in former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's recent conviction on 45 counts of child sex abuse. 

Greg Myford athletic director of Penn State's said that the song lyrics has not been appreciated due to his no links with university.He says, "It has no real origin at Penn State."
