Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
FOA (or "figuring out acronyms")
Its all one paragraph for some reason. I'll edit it when I'm not on an android. Sorry for any horribleness in the mean time.

We may want to retire that last one now that he's a Michigan parent.
Nope. Never forget.

I already know most of these acronyms, to be honest. Nevertheless, I thought it would be smart to hash these out for people who don't already know them. Also, while google is good for each individual acronym, I thought a compendium here would be more useful. P.S. Do you normally look up OPs? Not mad, just weirded out

Great. A chance for someone to explain HOTTT.
Google and Bing offer nothing.
As used by Brian today: "because it's part of the college experience to show up in the second quarter with HOTTT on your ass barely able to walk."
that one was a joke referring to sorority girls types that show up wearing pants with something printed on their butt, like juicy or hott or whatever.
God bless them for it.
He's talking about something like this:
You've never seen girls wear these before?

RDT = RollDamnTide - a Bama fan that became a notorious poster last year. That one threw me off first time I saw it.

BiSB = great contributor here and former mod. Stands for Blue in South Bend, as he used to reside there.

Correction RDT - A *fake* Alabama fan, who posted a bunch of stuff about recruiting, then was outed and never returned to the board
I'm new here (relatively) & I didn't know it was a fake Bama fan.
I just had to find out what it was because since I apparently originated around the time of RDT's antics, people were joking and saying I was RDT.
Nice try RDT.
Never returned that you know of...
...no I am not him.
Correction to your correction. RDT was a fake Alabama fan AND a poster known as "Wolverine in a bag" or WIAT for short
He's still here and surfaces now and then in different personas. One time he was a hot chick who just happened to know just about everything about recruiting.
Personally I think he's Herm
They all return. My guess is that he is here; just under a different name and keeping a low profile.
