3 Terms I hate in college football

[9]
Posted: Oct 7, 2018 11:05 AM
 

1 - "Smash mouth" football. Football is a physical game. Get over this term.
2 - "1st down and MORE" - Duh, any 1st down will get you "more" unless it is by penalty.
3 - "Scoop and score". Please already.

Except that one GA cheerleader that somebody posted on here the other week. That gal/guy was ripped. She could more than handle her own.


Male cheerleaders are bigger than any of the WRs or DBs lol

Wouldn't call them defenseless.

"If both teams bring their "A" game, we should have one for the ages". similar statements.

"It's a first down and then some". If it's a first down, it'a apparent it was a "and then some" regardless of the additional amount.

#1 should be simply "roughing" as it is in hockey.

I second "eye test". What it really means is "a preconceived bias that has little or no supporting data". Just be honest.


What LakeDude said!! "Eye test" has always rubbed


Posted: Oct 8, 2018 8:37 AM
 

me the wrong way along with ALL the SEC homerisms and there are a bunch, SEC Defense, SEC speed, etc, etc, etc!

Or using "SEC" as an adjective in general.***

"Smash mouth football" typically means the offense

is inept and can't do anything other than run the football. LSU has been a "smash mouth" team. Has anyone been impressed with their offenses in recent years?

I get the logic on the first two, but I don't get your dislike of "scoop and score"

[2]
Posted: Oct 7, 2018 11:46 AM
 

It accurately describes a bouncing ball being picked up by a defender and taking it to the house.

What's so wrong with it?


Sounds tacky. Just say "recovery"***


Posted: Oct 7, 2018 3:44 PM
 



2019 white level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg


Scoop and score


Posted: Oct 8, 2018 8:17 AM
 

is so much easier than saying "fumble recovery returned for a touchdown." That's why it's so common, it's short and to the point.


What about “taking it to the house”***

Physicality

and

“Keep contain”

...and any time that Oregon players have SEC-speed or Texas has an SEC-atmosphere, etc.

Scoop and score you hate? Why? That’s what it is. Same goes for “First down and more”, which just means additional yards. You have very odd annoyances.

Re: 3 Terms I hate in college football


Posted: Oct 7, 2018 1:38 PM
 

When people try and sound cool and use “RPO”, run pass option. “SEC speed” has always been annoying. And yes “moxie” is very annoying. “Up the guy” too.

"SEC speed" can't believe nobody said that already. The only time I would use that term is to describe chicken fans filing out to the parking lot with 25 minutes left on the game clock.


Re: 3 Terms I hate in college football

Ok now I see somebody has said it. Oh well. That ones mine.

How about "the big tight end". (Is there any other kind?)

"Trickeration"...There is no such word! Call it "trickery"


Posted: Oct 7, 2018 4:07 PM
 

if you want, but there is no such word as "trickeration", no matter how often Jesse Palmer and others use it.

1. “Heisman Race” (not a race - popularity contest)

2. “The Defense is gassed.” Used too often.

3. “In the trenches” again used too much.


True Freshman...

1. “He was hearing footsteps” as your favorite receiver drops a ball ahead of contact.

2. “His head’s on a swivel.” Sounds like some creepy omnipotent Chucky doll.

3. “No one runs the ‘INSERT JOHN GRUDEN TERM HERE’ better than the ‘INSERT TEAM HERE!!’”
