Neil Diamond“s classic “Sweet Caroline”  will no longer be played at Penn State football games because the lyrics have been deemed inappropriate … in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

The song …with the lyrics, “touching me, touching you” … has been a traditional fan sing-a-long at Penn State football home games, but school officials have decided to cut it from the playlist — for obvious reasons.

But here”s the thing, tons of pro and college teams — most famously the Boston Red Sox — use the song … which Diamond has said was inspired by a photo of a then 11-year old Caroline Kennedy with her pony.

So we gotta ask — if the song”s inappropriate at PSU”s Beaver Stadium, is it inappropriate for all sporting events
