A potential GTP project

After reading some of the comments to this Mandel post from the other day, I had a thought:  how useful would it be to compile a college football lexicon here at GTP?  I’m not talking about some run-of-the-mill, done-it-before list of technical terms, but rather a set of words and phrases that we tend to use on a more practical, day-to-day basis here.

For example…

  • Montana (n.) – Stewart Mandel’s state of mind.
  • Coxian (adj.) – a “what, me worry?” on-field decision by a player who should know better that leads to disaster, such as “I kind of saw Norwood and was like, hmmm, but I decided to throw it anyway…”
  • SEC speed (n.)Jim Delany’s code word for the academically ineligible.  (Or something worse.)
  • GPOOE(n.) – 1. Urban Meyer’s pet name for Tim Tebow. 2.  shorthand for Tebow worship.
  • Directional kicking (n.) – a demon that possesses the soul of Jon Fabris.
  • Corch (n.) – a term of endearment for Florida’s head man.

If there’s any interest in compiling a list of terms like this, I’d like it to be a collaborative effort with you guys.  Anything you come up with that’s added to the GTP dictionary will be given proper attribution, of course.  I’ll set up a permanent page for them that will be easy to access and link.

Let me know what you think about this in the comments.

********************************************************************

UPDATE: I’m taking the comments in response as an unqualified “yes”.  I hope to have the new page up in a couple of days or so.

    These things take inspiration, which you cannot force. Give us time & we’ll come up with a few worthwhile items.

    • I wasn’t expecting this to happen overnight. I’m just trying to gauge interest in it right now. If it’s something that there’s a fair amount of support for, I’ll set the page up and we can add to it over time.

  2. Haven’t been in the arena: a nice way of saying, I’m sure you mean well, but you don’t know what your talking about.

    • Section Z alum

      rebuilding: state of mind in which fan thinks team is improving, but in reality the team isn’t yet done falling apart.

  3. willie

    Reggie Ball (n.)- a term of endearment for all UGA fans.

    • “Dog” will definitely have a place.

    • Reggie Ball

      Quincy Carter: (n.) A term of endearment for all Georgia Tech fans.

      • Nate Hybl

        He certainly has a place in my heart, too. He is personally responsible for the BCSNC ring on my finger as I would never have transferred to OU without him.

        • Daniel Cobb

          Me too, Nate. I got a NJCAA National Championship ring with Butler Junior College I never would have had if Quincy hadn’t parachuted in and gotten all the good QBs to transfer. Got Donnan fired for it, too.

  4. BenG

    Very good idea, Senator. It would make your place a required first stop for people who are just getting their feet wet in the Dawg blogosphere.

    Don’t forget to add some variation on “in the arena” to the lexicon. I had to explain that one to my brother, who doesn’t follow the Dawg blogs as compulsively closely as I do.

  5. Sanford222View

    This really hasn’t been used here but how about “South Carolina State of Mind” for the always vigorous “this is our year” cry from the Gamecocks each pre-season?

  6. MWO

    How about “wtf” ? An exclamation formerly used by UGA fans when watching their secondary give a 10 yard cushion to every receiver. Soon to be as popular as “Boomer Sooner” in Norman.

  7. Dog in Fla

    gator (n.): a congregation or pod of florida and irwin meyer fans.

  8. I’m also thinking “Yaw yaw yaw yaw yaw yaw yaw footbaw” needs a place.

  9. simon

    barntard: awburn fan

  10. hassan

    Mettenberger – verb
    -ed, -ing

    1. To ruin a good situation by one’s own actions: Yeah, our date was going pretty well until I mettenbergered it by saying I thought her sister was really hot.

  11. Excellent idea. This is why the blogonet is your world and we only get to play in it.

  12. jferg

    meme (n): today’s completely unfounded rumor/idea/opinion du jour (usually, but not limited to, blabbering by Mandel or Finebaum and most recently Shanks).

    • Probably ought to be a “hot seat” definition, too…

      • Rum-Dawg Millionaire

        Hot seat (n) – a coach who is loved and trusted by his program and fans, but rival fans believe is in jeopardy of losing his job.

      • Hogbody Spradlin

        Jferg you’re on to something, but distinguish ‘meme’ from ‘canard.’ ‘Corch didn’t prepare Tebow for the pros’ is a meme. ‘Marck Richt is on the hot seat’ is a canard.

  13. Rusdawg

    “He Got Rambo-ed” : When a player who is clearly more talented and better equipped to succeed at a position is made second string/benched because there is an older player in the same position; not to be confused with “He Pulled a Bryan Evans”: I was supposed to be covering HIM?!?!

    • Dog in Fla

      “He Got Rambo-ed”: 2. Someone gets KO-ed when making a game saving play.

      • Puffdawg

        Add “…who is then ridiculed for making said game-winning play by some punk ass wishy washy noncommittal 18 year old who has never in his life accomplished a single thing on the college level.”

  14. Rusdawg

    Also…..you need to have a definition of “The GTGs” …… and just have a link to the youtube video…..

      • Rusdawg

        While we are at it:

        “Zombie Nation” : A term for any pregame piped in music that is highly unneccessary; i.e. GT cannot get their fans pumped up so they play some Zombie Nation…..fitting; also goes by “Baba O’Reilly”

        • Sanford222View

          Am I the only one who actually likes the “Baba O’Reilly” intro used at Sanford Stadium?

          • Rum-Dawg Millionaire

            I love it. To me, it’s as much a part of Georgia Saturdays as the battle hymn. Every time that song plays, it reminds me of the first day of the new football season.

          • 81Dog

            not at all. I love it, too.

            Piped in music isnt awful if it’s used judiciously. This means both in when it’s used, and the volume at which it’s played. The worst place I’ve ever been for sensory overload is Auburn. They play awful music at eardrum piercing levels almost every second the ball isn’t in play, except maybe when their goober PA guy isn’t making some announcement or another at the speed of the FedEx guy in a tone that sounds like Wes Durham on crack. Talk about fake juice….

  15. X-Dawg

    “Crompton-like Performance” has a dual meaning. It can be used when a QB has a horrific day, or, as in the case of our game with UTK last year, it can be used to describe a Heisman worthy performance by a QB.

  16. “third and Willie”- (n) when any team’s defense has absolutely no chance of stopping a 3rd down conversion.

    • 81Dog

      “yeah, we almost had AU shut down in 2005, in Athens, but we 4th and Willie-d it into a 65 yard touchdown to lose.”

      Kind of a reverse Reggie Ball, I suppose.

  17. Rum-Dawg Millionaire

    Love the idea.

    “Beer Broad” (n): a scantily-clad hussy that leads to the downfall of a football player (h/t Mayor of Dogtown)

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      “Sexual battery” (n.): The crime of coming on too strong with a local scantily-clad hussy in a backward, fascist jurisdiction.

  18. 'matsdawg

    getting butter….

  19. BeerMoney

    “Fake juice”(n.)–The desperate grab at motivation by trotting out ridiculous gimmicks that could not possibly be any more translucent to the fans, our own players, the media, or the opponent.

  20. hassan

    Source close to the situation

    mythical person to attribute a rumor to in order to attempt to present it as fact

  21. D.N. Nation

  22. Hogbody Spradlin

    Is there a place in here for ‘baby gator’ or ‘Cleveland Steamer’?

  23. Bulldog Bry

    Fair catch – the under utilization of a football player OR the lack of surprise.

  24. Lee

    Evil Richt:

    an alternate persona of CMR that takes advantage of recruiting tactics about to be banned, ordering entire team celebrations on opponents, and performing back-flips off of the 10 meter high dive. He can be seen wearing dark sunglasses and a black polo.

    “Spending time with family”- NOT spending time with family.

  27. Brandon

    ”The Colquitt”: n. ceremonial name of Tennessee’s starting punter; ”His Cutcliffe” n.: term used to describe an opposing coordinator who so thoroughly owns an offensive/defensive coordinator that his game plans become the basis for all future game plans against said coordinator, such game plans and such coordinator’s inability to adjust have in fact or will eventually result in the coordinator being run out of the business (see the Rise and Fall of Willy Martinez);
    ”Cratchity Old Tech Man” n.: any bitter old Tech fan such as Furman Bisher who refuses to acknowledge that Georgia has completely dominated Tech since the Eisenhower administration. I also liked David Hale’s use of the phrase ”Beyond Crompton” to describe a truly incompetent performance by a team, unit, or individual. Ex: Vandy’s QB play last year was beyond Crompton.

    • 81Dog

      now, Brandon, let’s be fair to the nerds. UGA hasn’t dominated them since the Eisenhower administration. It’s really once since the Kennedy adminstration. Coach Dooley was hired late in 1963, just after LBJ took over as President. So, it’s basically just shy of 50 years, rather than 50 years.

      I bet it feels a lot longer on North Ave, though.

      • Brandon

        I stand corrected 81Dog, I was thinking back to the end of the streak by Theron Sapp because that’s what ole Furman will bring up anytime he get’s a chance but it really did start with Dooley.

        • 81Dog

          I can’t blame you, Brandon. I’m not old enough to remember the Johnny Griffith ear at UGA, but the people I know who are old enough would all like to forget it. It’s one of those things that no one speaks about, sort of like the Mike Price era at Alabama (though, to be honest, Mike WAS undefeated).

          • 81Dog

            oops. Replace “ear” with “era.” Far as I know, there was no Van Gogh incident with Johnny Griffith.

  28. Section Z alum

    Orrin Hatch – Nevada senator who thinks government interference in health care is bad, but government interference in college football is good. See also – political wankery.

  29. BenG

    Speaking of Hale, he has suggested a new “phrase of the season” in his post here:

    http://ugadogsblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/acoplamientos-de-miercoles-cinco-de.html

    To quote:

    Last year, we coined the phrase “Beyond Crompton.” I think this year’s Bulldogs Blog catchphrase needs to be “Banished from Valdosta.” I’m thinking it’ll refer to something bad that happens that really has virtually no effect on the aggrieved party. For example, “Georgia would have been totally banished from Valdosta if Bryan Evans had gone down with an injury last season.”

  30. Dog in Fla

    Radakoviched (v.): when your athletic director cancels games with opposing teams he respects even though he knows it would be great fun to play them.

  44. Dboy

  45. Dboy

    A “Dooley’s Mom”: a well-intentioned UGA supporter turned traitor:

    Quote per Mark Wietzer-

    “Barbara Dooley, wife of Vince and mother of Derek, was in the crowd wearing orange. Derek Dooley:

    Chapaquitic – a fullback run on 3rd and 25.

    ConFab – directional kick that lands out of bounds.

    Martinize – to inherit a top-rated defense and gradually coach them down.

          Tebloviate: Over-effusive and gushing speech or blogging about a former college QB, bordering on infatuation, adoration or crush.

  51. Derek

    Finebaum – n. A unit of liquid measurement. Almost exclusively applied to douches. The standard douche is .0001 Finebaums. Said differently, one Finebaum would fill 10,000 douches. Therefore, Finebaum is one very large douche.

    Fulmered- adj. Being fired and replaced by a guy who can best be described as 100 Finebaums. (not to be confused with “Fulmerized” which the act of having your job stolen while you are in ICU recovering from open heart surgery.)

    Kiffin- n. a moral victory. Usage: I know we lost, but it was a total Kiffin.

    Kiffining- v. describes the act of celebrating moral victories.

    Tech- v. the act of urinating. Usage: Where’s the bathroom, I gotta take a Tech? Etymology- inspired by the team colors of Georgia Tech.

    bleacher idiot- n. denotes a fan who thinks he understands defensive football because he is familiar with the terms: man, zone, blitz and adjustment. This person often believes that if you always played man coverage, blitized on every play and “adjusted” that the opposing offense would never score a single point, ever. Not surprisingly, these fans can not actually recognize the difference between man and zone coverage while watching a game. They often conclude that any positive result in any given play is the result of man coverage, a blitz or an adjustment, irrespective of the actual defensive play called.

    Rocky Topped- adj. describes the passive, but sometimes consensual, partner in an incestuous sex act. Usage: “D’ya ‘ear ’bout Betty George? She got Rocky Topped by her diddy Lester Bob last night. She don’t mind tho cuz the way he done done it she ain’t getting no baby.”

  52. JC in Powder Springs

    Okay, I’ve got time on my hands and can’t get this off my mind. Here goes:

    hype-notize: Unquestioned belief in hype of any form. Use: SC fans were easily hype-notized into believing Spurrier would deliver an SEC championship.

    fabriscate – to make-up fantasy reasons to continue with a failed strategy. Use: A certain coach fabriscated directional kicking success when all the facts pointed to its failure.

      that’s “won” not “one”, I have a bad habit of doing that. Also I’ll add the “Lou Holtz Syndrome” n.: the utter inability of a commentator to show impartiality towards a school he or she was formerly a coach or player at, the progression of this horrendous affliction leads to a total blindness towards the faults of the subject school’s team particularly weakness of schedule, it can also lead to public ridicule when you consistently pick the subject school to win games no rationale person would; Finally (for the moment): “The May-Holtz Line” n.: analogous to the Mendoza line in baseball it is a line which is crossed anytime a college football prognosticator picks less than a third of his games correctly straight up (not against the spread).

  58. woodlandhillsdog

    Corsoed; (v): When an individual makes a complete fool out of themselves in front of a national audience.

    Example: The gameday announcer totally corsoed the 15 year old blind boy when he reached out his hand to him on on national television.

    Bay-Bay (v.) – 1. to drop a ball. 2. to make an uncharacteristic mistake at the most important moment leading to an embarrassing complete failure. “I studied all night, but somehow I still Bay-Bayed on that final.”

    Bad Deal (n.) – a past occurrence that humiliated and angers you. It will forever be in the mind of you and your football team (or just you). You’ll handle it, and it’s going to be a big deal.

    (To) Get a Ring/s (v.) – a phrase used often sarcastically to mock an over-the-top excitement over an achievement. “Wow, you’ve been playing that video game for a month and you finally beat it? Are you going to get a ring or something?”

    Straight Outta Crompton (adj.) – describes any unexpected or uncharacteristically magnificent performance. “Woah! Vanderbilt just beat Florida? That’s straight outta Crompton!”

    Quarterback (n.) – the position in football responsible for passing or handing off the football, and sometimes fair-catching punts. “This looks like a great punt to return! We should definitely put a quarterback in there to fair-catch it. That will really catch them off guard.”

    Arkansas got absolutely “curled” in gainesville last year!

    Senator,

    I like this idea. With such a large response, we now need to vote the entries into the dictionary. Maybe have a voting mechanism and put 5 proposed entries into the GTP lexicon up for entry per day/ week or whatever. There is certainly a large bulk of entries, but we need to carve out the filler and leave the gravy.

  86. Joeski

    This is an excellent idea. I have a few contributions at the moment:

    Spurrious: the condition of being successful at one institution, but flamingly mediocre (or worse) at subsequent gigs. Ex: “Rich Rodriguez is totally Spurrious at Michigan.”

    Fugulmer: The look of helpless frustration- usually involving puffing your cheeks out like a blowfish- that a coach dons when one of his players does something completely boneheaded.

    Holtzing: The act of poor-mouthing your own team’s chances in an upcoming sporting event, despite the fact that the opponent is a rent-a-victim.

    Sabanistan: a program with a culture of paranoia, media- and fan-unfrendliness, arrogance, rudeness, and general facism, all ‘justified’ as being in the name of ‘winning games’.

    Miles-marker: an absolutely boneheaded game- and/or clock management decision, yet still managing to pull it off. Ex. “That decision to go for it on 4th-and-12 on their own 30 when there was still more than 4 minutes to play and they were only down by 3 was a total Miles-marker! I can’t believe they actually got the first down.”

    Dooleyed: The condition of having to suppress your normal inclinations for the sake of social grace. Ex. “Man, we watched the UGA/UA game over at my inlaws; they’re big Tide fans, so I was Dooleyed.”

    Orgeronic- the condition of being full of sound and fury, but signifying nothing. Ex. “That drunk guy at the party last night was Orgeronic– trying to pick a fight with an off-duty cop? TOTALLY Orgeronic.”

    Kiffinated- first being hyper and obnoxious, only to later be chased away with your tail between your legs (usually the aftermath of somebody being Orgeronic).

    Mullenigan- The act of bringing in either a rising or established coaching star to try to ‘revitalize’ a program that never was all that vital to begin with.

    Meyering- equivocating or telling half-truths and even outright lies. “That coach was Meyering big-time; promising that QB he’d have ‘a shot’ at the NFL when they run a spread offense there? Total Meyering.”

    Richtastic- being too optimistic and positive about a situation when a sober assessment would probably be more effective than wearing rose-colored glasses. “I’ve always thought that saying our players ‘handled a loss well’ was being Richtastic. I’d prefer it if they got really mad that they lost– maybe then they would WIN.”

    That’s all I got for the moment. I’m sure my warped mind with come up with more later.

    Joeski’s “Spurrious” has my vote.

    ball-lickin’ good- an expression of a winning celebration that can only be posed by the Dawg mascot. e.g.,…” whoo boy! that game was ball-lickin’ good!!”

  93. NRBQ

    Markmayed. (v) To have success in an impending game guaranteed by an avowed “expert,” despite the absence of logic or reason pertaining thereto. See: Hawai’i, Sugar Bowl.

    • You may be on to something here. Although I’m thinking the term of art should be something like:

      DisMayed (adj.) – to be the misplaced subject of Mark May’s lack of respect.

  94. Chuck

    The 100-yard stare: The condition that forces all broadcasters and commentators on ESPN to constantly drop a wet blanket on the fun and excitement of a great play by immediately bringing up the player’s Heisman chances or the team’s national championship chances.
