“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Speaking of things that got to go... "lol" is obnoxious and meaningless. Proof: if it meant something, the poster above wouldn't have had to say "this made me laugh" as well.
I believe the word you're looking for is, "sssymbolism".
"Ohio" for Ohio State.
I know I'm in the minority, but that's just my opinion. I can't stand it.
1-cray or cray-cray
2-when girls call their friends, "frannnns"
Two new expressions I've learned to hate:
One is when somebody (usually a girl, but sometimes even a guy) sees or hears something cute or touching and gives this long drawn-out, "Awwwwww.........")
The other is same situation but some good news is heard and they clap their hands and say "Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!"
I fucking hate that. Guaranteed, you will see or hear one of the other within the next three days.
That was my first thought. You beat me to it.
In the u.s. it is fascinating when people say " you Canadians talk funny eh" when you yanks say "like" two or three times in every sentence
YES!!!! I like completely agree with this, like i really do.
Troll tide, bro!
When an announcer refers to a three point shot in basketball as "from down town" I cringe. I'm pretty sure that Marv (sp?) Albert started this and if he was the only one who said it it wouldn't be so annoying, but "down town" is the fall back for every hack announcer on the planet now.
Former Big Ten Network announcer and Northwestern football player Chris Martin may have been the worst offender at shoe-horning catch phrases into broadcasts. I once heard him refer to a "Skittles™ play". I watched the play over and over and to this day can't tell you what made it a Skittles™ play.
Anything that comes out of Dick Vitale's mouth needs to be retired.

Anything Justin Beiber related.
Touchdown Buckeyes--that just is way overrated.
Also sick of everything on Sportscenter. It's just an awful show. I don't watch it anymore, but whenever I catch a couple of minutes, I want to gouge my ears out.
Sportscenter SSUUUUUCCCKKKS. I don't understand why someone doesn't come in and actually put together a well-produced highlights show because there sure as hell doesn't exist one anymore.
My inside sources are giving indications that this has, in fact happened.
Dreadful tinny sort of words.
You can all "Gorn off"
" Big time players make big time plays in big time games. "
I like "pick six" I also like "scoop n score!"
the next time Michigan recovers a fumble and runs it back, try and say it as you would imagine Ken Kal would announce it. It really adds to the enjoyment :)
When people refer to recruits as "studs," ugh...drives me crazy.
"Impactful" - It sounds stupid and tells me that the person saying it is stupid.
"Fast twitch" - Makes me uncomfortable for some reason
"Basically" - If it is so "basic" why is your explanation so long?
"Economies of scale" and "Correlation does not equal causation" - The two terms idiots who took an Econ or Stats 101 blurt out when in an argument.
Stupid. If people don't know you're being sarcastic, you probably shouldn't say it.
You should have put an /s at the end of your post. It's the internet and sarcasm does not translate well. Why do you think people started using /s?
What's so hard about typing scholarship?
Stop calling recruits "studs." We're not bringing them here to breed them for chrissake.
(If they do that on their own, that's their affair. So to speak.)
Overexaggerate = same as exaggerate
Tryhard. Not sure how this is an insult, but it is.
Cool story, bro. Just a way to be rude to people/dismiss legitimate arguments.
Men saying "pee" instead of "piss."
The following common online butcheries:
Ohio referring to themselves as "Bucks." Sorry no: You're not a stud deer, you're an acorn.
Ending a comment with the superfluous, idiotic "that is all" instead of just the goddamned period you're supposed to use.
Their definately must be some more out there that effect me when I hear them but that's all ur going to get for now because I gotta go pee. That is all.
One of my coworkers says swole all the time, like "are you going to the gym to get swole?" Every time he says it I want to punch him in the face.
Calling a recruit a stud or calling them Mr. ____. They're 17 yr old high school kids
Unless you are a cartoon dog and your name is Scooby Doo.
An ex-girlfriend's annoying roommate used to say it. A local sportscaster in DC says it. Turns out he's leaving town for a new gig. I rejoiced.
The use of the word "fucking" to fill space between words to buy a slow mind time for thoughts to catch up to the mouth.
The bizaare way "you know" is used for the same thing.
Effing French yelling "allez!" when they win points during the French Open.
Effing Spanish people yelling "vamos!" when they win points during the French Open.
Effing Americans yelling "come on!" when they win points during the French Open.
Dated, but Roger Federer crumbling in joyous rapture after winning his zillionth major like, now THIS one is REALLY the new greatest moment of his life. Act like you been there already man.
Soccer/futbol players diving, fainting and sighing and grabbing random body parts like gigantic wuss bags to win calls from refs.
The sick way this same type of flopping and over-acting is creeping into basketball.
The way NBA players are all buddies now. Bring back the old days when they all effing hated each other and brawled like Dr J, Bird, Magic, Isiah, Parrish,and Malone, and MJ. The '92 Olympic dream team started this pathetic path hand holding, kumbaya love fest we all see today.
I could go on forever. I need therapy.
So "fucking" is bad, but "effing" is cool with you? I don't know about that. It doesn't seem to make any fucking sense.
Diving is creeping into basketball like the Germans crept into Poland.
I really hate the "COME ON" thing in tennis. It's not just Americans though.
...where that is a perfectly acceptable phrase.
When people refer to a youtube highlight video as "film."
Ex. "I wasn't too impressed with his film." Ugh. A five minute youtube video showcasing only a player's good plays is not game film.
Yes. This. What you said. A thousand times. I hate when some recruiting analyst wannabe says, "I watched his film and...." The fuck you did. There's a big difference between a hype video and the stuff that recruiters and coaches actually watch to get a full evaluation.
"I watched his film and I think he's a stud." Why, has this guy been making porn now?
Class act, "the league" anyone?
Shane Morris is going to do/be ________ ....
How about we let him make his own lot in life, and not tempt the football gods.
"Posbang" has got to go. I can't imagine a more Mlivean/RCMB term. Completely sophomoric and stupid. This blog is worse because of it.
