Vocabulary Lessons From Husker Preseason Camp

Big Red NetworkSenior Writer IAugust 5, 2008

If you are anything like me, you got tired of reading the same three bullet points coming out of the first day of Husker football camp - Kevin Dixon is off the team; Anthony Blue is still injured; some recruits didn't qualify, etc. Even the feature stories about the running backs were pretty much the same ideas, regardless of the source. So, I did a deep dive on the press conference transcripts. (Always read transcripts folks, things are better without the filter). I discovered a couple of interesting word choices that fans should get a kick out of. I like one of them so much, I'll use it for the rest of the season, and maybe the rest of my time as a blogger.
