    The thesaurus is defined in the dictionary as being "a book that lists words in groups of synonyms and related concepts."



    Looking up the definition of "thesaurus" in a dictionary: Mind-Bottling.

    [​IMG]



    This week's Deep Dig is more of a "user's manual" than a thesaurus, but that small detail won't stop us from moving forward with publication as planned. It is Anwar Richardson's first week at Orangebloods - and we don't want our newest family member venturing into the jungle without, at least, a rudimentary knowledge of his surroundings and a bit of substantive background about the landscape.



    So I emerge from the dark basement this week with my welcome gift: The Orangebloods Thesaurus.

    A


    Air Coryell - In the aftermath of the disaster that was the 2010 season, this new poster on the site disputed just about everything reported by Orangebloods. The situation arose during the period of time when Mack Brown was rebuilding his entire coaching staff (except at the one position on the staff where change was needed the most). Air Coryell was known during this transition for disputing OB headlines and taking shots at family members of recently departed Texas Football staff. After responding to a number of posts under his new handle, Air Coryell moved to a computer that was logged in under the handle "TexasSID" and responded to a poster under the wrong handle, only to quickly recognize the mistake and attempt to edit without anyone noticing. After contacting members of both the Texas SID and athletic director's office, it was confirmed that the person posting from a terminal inside the athletic department was not actually a member of the Texas SID office. Using IP addresses associated with both posts and emails sent directly to Orangebloods in the previous 12 months, along with those we spoke with inside the athletic department, it was confirmed that Air Coryell was actually Mack Brown's stepson, Chris Jessie. RELATED: Insiders



    Allsome - Awesome.



    B



    BBQ'ing vs. Grilling - One thing that will get a poster roasted on Orangebloods is referring to "grilling" - which is the act of heating food quickly over an open flame/grill - as BBQ'ing which is the art of smoking fine meats for long periods at low temperatures; using the indirect heat of rich, aromatic local woods, preferably oak or pecan.



    Bellmont - Longhorn Football headquarters is Bellmont Hall, located in the west side of DKR Texas Memorial Stadium. Posters will qualify statements in terms like "word out of Bellmont is that ...," indicating the news comes straight from the program.



    Best Place To Eat In... - One of the most common off-topic threads on Orangebloods, posters will frequently solicit advice about establishments where they should dine while traveling in unfamiliar areas.



    Big 12 Missile Crisis - Former Orangebloods reporter Chip Brown gained notoriety through a period of time where coverage of the realignments and shifts leading to A&M's move to the SEC was at a fever pitch.



    BigDD Transgender Episode - Mentions of OB poster BigDD and "Trannies" stem from an event that took place nearly half a decade ago where BigDD, excited about an internet date he had set up, braggingly showed the OB community pictures of the woman he was set to meet that evening - only to have it exposed through creative detective work on the forums that the individual in question was a pre-op transgender male.



    Bill Little - A master wordsmith and unbelievable homer of all homers, the great Bill Little is a Texas special assistant for communications who has been writing beautiful columns through a burnt-orange tint through nearly 50 years of Longhorn football. Posters will use his name when columns of other writers seem too positive and rosy. Example: "Thanks for the orange kool-aid, Bill Little. Quit peeing on our legs and telling us it's raining."



    Blake Gideon / Blue Collar

    [​IMG]
    An underdog four-year starter at safety who was described with very typical adjectives for white players frequently, such as Lunch Pail Guy, Blue-Collar, Gritty, High-IQ and High-Motor. RELATED: Michael Crabtree / "I Dreamed It In My Head"[/B]



    Blasting Tits - A term coined when the Orangebloods staff, especially Editor Jason Suchomel, was at Geoff Ketchum's wedding, resulting in posters clogging the forums with pornographic photos of naked women. Another mod put the clamps on the fun and told the community that "blasting tits" would not be allowed, and an epic OBism was born. RELATED: Meltdown



    Blue Drinks - References to OB publisher Geoff Ketchum and "blue drinks" date back nearly a decade and can be traced to photos that surfaced at a bar or party featuring Ketchum holding a distinctly blue and very girly-looking cocktail which was later identified as a concoction featuring Hypnotiq, a go-to in Ketch's bar repertoire from back in his hell-raising days.



    Bluehairs - Younger posters and those who complain about stadium experience at Longhorn sporting events usually blame the "bluehairs," or the older donors who buy up all the good seats on the lower-level of DKR's west-side deck and court-side at Frank Erwin Center. Example: "How can we ever get a good crowd atmosphere when the bluehairs tell everyone to sit down so they can see the game?!?"



    BMD's - Big-money donors. They call quite a few shots at Texas and literally every one is a member at Orangebloods. RELATED: Lurker



    BOR - The University of Texas' Board of Regents.



    Breakfast Tacos - The national breakfast of Texas and subject of frequent debate regarding which are best.



    Brine - A culinary tool for flavoring and preparing fine meats made popular on the Orangebloods forums by poster calihornia who owns Sweetwater Spice, a popular line of BBQ Bath.



    Bullmarket - An infamous OU poster known for his attempts at trolling and constant inflammatory emails to Orangebloods publisher Geoff Ketchum, who would share over-the-top examples of this correspondence with the forums on occasion.



    C



    Called into Mack's Office - A situation that occurred notoriously and frequently under Mack Brown's tenure at Texas in which reporters, of Orangebloods included, would get called into Mack Brown's office over something they had written or said about him or the team.



    Case McCoy and "Moxie" - Colt McCoy's less talented little brother Case got slapped with this hilarious adjective about his demeanor early on and somehow managed to keep it, coming through in numerous big games among other flops.



    Celebrities on OB

    [​IMG]
    Celebrities, ex-players, rock stars, Senators and everyone else under the sun associated with Longhorn Nation are Orangebloods users - Users should be warned to be careful what they say. RELATED: Lurker



    CFS - Abbreviation for Charlie F----g Strong. RELATED: JFF (can also be used in food threads to stand for chicken fried steak)



    Chance Mock / "Business Decision" - Users will occasionally make reference to a recruit making a "business decision" regarding where he chooses to go to school in reference to a popular quote by former high-profile Texas QB prospect Chance Mock who cited this as his reasoning for deciding to attend Texas over Texas A&M in a contested recruiting battle.


    Cheetos / McAlister's Deli - SEE: Gingers



    Chili - Likely the subject of the most heated debate of any on Orangebloods is whether or not posters eat their beans with or without chili. Certain posters identify with their allegiances so much that they have beans and no-beans shields in their signatures. The most popular opinion is "no beans."



    Coach Walker / Missing Laptop - Years ago, a new hoops contributor was announced at Orangebloods named Coach Walker, a junior college basketball coach. After the introduction and with hopes of new features, users started to worry when days and weeks went by without any content from Coach. During this time, he would have excuses about his laptop malfunctioning/going missing. Coach Walker eventually posted two pieces of content on Orangebloods and has not been heard from since those few weeks.



    Colt McCoy / Jordan Shipley References

    [​IMG]

    They're best friends. They're like brothers. They're fishing buddies, hunting buddies, they grew up together, shared a womb as unborn babies, were roommates, their dads played college football together, their dads were roommates, the list goes on and on. Orangebloods users would often display their disdain for hearing these quips from announcers on television and posters on OB so much that any mention of the subject has become used primarily in a fashion similar to "We landed on the moon." RELATED: David Ash Grew Up With No Television



    Corral - An OB sub-forum where most every political, religious, blatantly off-topic or out-of-place user contribution can be found. Users will commonly use the phrase "Take it to the corral" when sensing touchy overtones in threads posted in the premium sports forum. RELATED: Prayer Requests

    Craig James Killed Five Hookers - Posters on Orangebloods, frequently of the older generation, will make references to Craig James' shady past at SMU by proliferating the urban myth that James murdered five prostitutes while attending college.




    D



    David Ash Grew Up With No Television - Texas QB David Ash grew up without a television in his home, and the subject draws similar ire to McCoy/Shipley References. RELATED: Sydmil Harris Speaks Six Languages



    Dead Dog References and Aggies

    [​IMG]

    Mentions of "dead dogs" when referring to Aggie lore are made by Orangebloods posters on occasion in reference to the fact that A&M has a pet cemetery next to the stadium where the University buries its infamously well-handled canine mascots.



    "Duck!" - A warning from one user to another within a thread that the statement one has made is likely to draw a violent and quick response.



    E



    EricG

    [​IMG]

    Orangebloods' go-to user for hilarious .gifs and photoshops, he also hosts an Orangebloods networking meet and greet that occurs regularly in Houston.



    F



    Fire Rick Barnes - A common thread title in the Orangebloods forums, both in times of good and in times of bad. In times of bad, it is posters calling for the UT basketball coach's head, while during the good times, other posters mock those who have insinuated this in the past with their same (now silly-seeming) thread title.



    First - A proclamation made by the lucky poster who is the first to comment on an article or thread.



    "Fixing It" - A common term seen on Orangebloods which refers to several points in time during that latter portion of Mack Brown's career at Texas where he told the media that he was "fixing it." Related: Youth Infusions / New-Found Energy



    Flame - A post or thread started or made with no clear point other than stirring up controversy.



    Franklin BBQ / "Waiting In Line" References

    [​IMG]

    Franklin BBQ is thought of as the best BBQ in Central Texas and, arguably, the world. Customers must get in line as early as 7am and face daily waits of 3-5 hours to get their BBQ. The constructiveness of using this time to wait for Franklin versus frequenting other world-class options with much shorter lines is a virtual every-week debate among Orangebloods posters.



    Free Boards - Where the posters who do not have premium subscriptions post, which means plenty of smack talk from posters from other sites.


    "F**k You, Paul." - An Orangebloods gem that originates from publisher Geoff Ketchum sharing an angry email with the community where the emailer ended his rant by signing off,

    F**k You,
    Paul



    G



    Game of Thrones Scorecard - A fantastic tool created by Orangebloods poster W.E. Henley that recaps the most recent episode of the HBO "Game of Thrones" series with (non-spoiler) information and additional background provided from his knowledge of the book series.



    Garrett Gilbert and "Squinting"

    [​IMG]

    Former Texas QB Garrett Gilbert drew the ire of many Orangebloods posters who took vocal note of the fact that he frequently appeared to be squinting and shading his eyes when looking to the sidelines for play-calls. Debates raged about whether he needed glasses and possibilities of tinted visors were heard versus those who found worrying about the issue insane and ridiculous.


    "Georgia." - A common one-word statement used by posters when speaking of a prospect. The replier, stating "Georgia," indicates he/she does not believe the prospect will be coming to Texas, and furthermore, gives the connotation that he/she believes the prospect will commit to an out-of-state school. This started during the recruitment period of Matt Stafford when Orangebloods posters would quickly wants talks of Matt Stafford, a Georgia-lock, shut down as speculation.



    Gingers - A derogatory term for red-headed Orangebloods posters and the primary subject in one of the most intricate hoaxes in Orangebloods history. It is far too detailed to recap, but can be found in the Classics.



    "Girls Romancing Each Other" - Orangebloods posters will talk about "Girls Romancing Each Other" in reference to a quote from a notably hilarious high school English paper written in 2008 by then-recruit DT Jamarkus McFarland comparing his OU visit to what he described as an extremely rowdy Texas one: "I will never forget the excitement amongst all participants," McFarland wrote. "Alcohol was all you can drink, money was not an option. Girls were acting wild by taking off their tops, and pulling down their pants. Girls were also romancing each other. Some guys loved every minute of the freakiness some girls demonstrated. I have never attended a party of this magnitude."



    Grammar Nazi - An Orangebloods poster who incessantly harps on other posters for their use of correct grammar and spelling.



    Greg Davis - Former Texas offensive coordinator and the recipient of the most Orangebloods vitriol of any person, place or thing in history.



    H



    Hamster Wheels / Hamsters - References to Hamster Wheels and Hamsters in general are often used to poke fun at Rivals.com servers and satellite signals of local radio stations. Example: "There is an error message, time to get the hamster back on the wheel at Rivals." RELATED: The Horn / 104.9FM



    Haters - Posters identified by other posters on Orangebloods as being anti-UT and not representative of the fan base at large.



    Houston vs. Dallas - A debate about which city is better that is so hot that some on Orangebloods may even find a way to argue over the fact that it is called "Houston vs. Dallas" here and not "Dallas vs. Houston."



    I



    "I'm Stunned, I'm Pissed" - A frequent expression of distaste on Orangebloods that refers back to the original thread in which many came to know of the eventual hire of Mack Brown titled "I'm Stunned, I'm Pissed, it's Mack Brown."



    "I've Seen Better On Campus" - A highly used retort on Orangebloods that originated with posters sharing pictures of attractive females and other posters claiming they had seen better on UT's campus. The phrase is now used in all kinds of ways to indicate that something might be better on campus than the offering of the poster. Example: I've read/eaten better on campus, etc. RELATED: Vietnam References



    Insiders - Orangebloods has its share of insider posters, and these are posters with deep ties to the program. Occasionally they will pop in with confidential tidbits and insight. Some insiders are more high-profile than others, and the board has also seen a number of proclaimed "insiders" outed as fakes which makes choosing who to trust an important issue.



    Irish Travelers

    [​IMG]

    One of the greatest and most fascinating threads in Orangebloods history can be found in the Classics and passed on knowledge from posters living near Fort Worth about the large population of Irish Travelers/Gypsies that make White Settlement, Tx. their home.



    "It's Austin" - The most infamous two words in Orangebloods history. The incorrect, take-it-to-the-bank proclamation made by Orangebloods publisher Geoff Ketchum in 2010 that the next Texas defensive coordinator would be Teryl Austin when in actuality, the eventual hire was Manny Diaz.


    "It's Happening!" - An expression of profound excitement (frequently associated with maniacally-themed gifs) that pays homage to a period of time in which the Orangebloods forums were in a fever-pitch, airplane-tracking frenzy regarding the possibility of Nick Saban being named successor to Mack Brown.



    ITT - An abbreviation for "In this thread" used in thread subject titles. Example: "All Manchester FC Fans Get ITT!"



    J



    Jester - Refers to Jester Dormitory on campus, a residence hall large enough to literally have its own zip code, and was/is home for at least two semesters to numerous Orangebloods posters as well as a primary residence of many current Texas athletes.



    JFF - The most common abbreviation used on Orangebloods for Browns QB Johnny Manziel, standing for, presumably, "Johnny F----g Football."



    Joe Natural - A popular Orangebloods poster known for being the owner a few beach-side shops in Cabo and ... using ellipses ... as his primary method of punctuation ... when posting about ... young girls - dark, dark skin and bright smiles ... taking their photos thru sea spray ... wearing beads in the sun - nothing else ...



    K



    Ketchum and Aliases / Conspiracies - Orangebloods publisher Geoff Ketchum has freely admitted that he, in the beginning of Orangebloods, created dozens of poster "aliases" in effort to create the appearance of lots of forum activity and attract new members. Having also admitted he still occasionally posts under some of those aliases, debates rage on about which posters on Orangebloods might actually be Ketchum.



    Kings of Leon

    [​IMG]

    A subject of disdain on Orangebloods due to the rock group's very vocal allegiance to the Oklahoma Sooners football program and frequent displays viewed as disrespectful such as making "horns down" signals with their hands at concerts.



    L



    Land Thief - A term used commonly by Orangebloods posters to describe Oklahoma Sooners fans, as the Oklahoma mascot (a Sooner) is literally a person who broke Oklahoma Land Act rules to unlawfully squat on land to eventually claim as their own.



    Let's Get It Started ... - The thread title of a game-day back-and-forth in which posters simulate the stadium yelling of the words "Texas" and "Fight" within the thread.



    Let's Ride - A term coined by Coach Charlie Strong in his first days at Texas when picking up a big recruit.



    LHR's Tailgate - Basically the official Orangebloods tailgate during home games, poster LonghornRealtor and the Texas Tailgate Company crew put on a first-class event every time.



    Listeater

    [​IMG]

    The listeater is a woman who became infamous as a Texas A&M student who wanted tickets to the 2005 Cotton Bowl versus Tennessee. At the time, A&M students had to sign up for tickets, and when they were to be picked up, a list was furnished by the school that determined the order that the students would have to stand in line. The listeater ignored the protocol and marched to the front of the line where she was shown the list by other students. The listeater then ate the whole list in protest.



    Liucci - Billy Liucci is the owner of a very popular Aggies website who is thought of by Longhorn fans in many of the same ways Orangebloods publisher Geoff Ketchum is thought of by A&M fans. RELATED: TexAgs



    Lockhart - The Central Texas "home of brisket" is Lockhart which is located about 40 minutes southeast of Austin. A frequent, unending debate among Orangebloods posters is which of the three BBQ places in town is best - Smitty's, Black's or Kreuz's.



    Longhorn Fantasy Sword Shop - An unbelievably hilarious thread from years ago on Orangebloods that still gets referenced often, a poster came to the forums looking for advice about opening a brick-and-mortar storefront in the mall that sold very expensive specialty Longhorn-themed fantasy wizard swords.



    "LOOK AT ME!" - A common retort that occurs by posters early in threads indicating their belief that the original poster only started the thread to bring attention to his or herself rather than Longhorn subject matter. RELATED: MODS!!!!!!!!!!

    LSU Holla! - A phrase used by Orangebloods posters to indicate their opinion that a prospect will likely commit to LSU. The reference stems from a text message sent from Ryan Perrilloux on the night of his commitment to Martellus Bennett, letting the cat out of the bag that Perilloux had chosen LSU over Texas.



    Lurker - 95 percent of Orangebloods members fall in this category, the quiet super-majority. These members do not post in the forums themselves, but "lurk" on the website reading the opinions of others.



    M



    Mad Dog

    [​IMG]

    A frequently criticized member of Mack Brown's staff, S&C Coach Jeff Madden was/is constantly ridiculed by numerous Orangebloods posters for lack of physical development of certain players under his tenure and his own out-of-shape appearance.



    Main Board - The main recruiting forum on Rivals.com is a place where posters eat their young and users should venture there only very, very carefully. There have been instances where unsuspecting posters have literally had their lives ruined over issues started within that forum.



    MBC or Mack Brown Curse - A term that referred to a very long-standing and inexplicably accurate predictor of college success is that prospects who screwed Mack Brown in recruiting (even of the highest rankings and tier) overwhelmingly went on to be busts at the college level.



    Meltdown - A state of chaos on the board that is fueled by hate and anger and sometimes drunkenness, meltdowns usually occur in the wake of losses by the football team.



    Michael Crabtree / "I Dreamed It In My Head"

    [​IMG]

    One of the most gut-wrenching losses for modern Longhorns fans was in 2008 when the then-No. 1 Longhorns, after playing badly against No. 7 Texas Tech all night, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory via one Blake Gideon dropped interception and one last-second touchdown play served up by Tech superstar Michael Crabtree. It was the post-game interview that sent Orangebloods into an absolute frenzy, though.



    Miley Cyrus References - Posters will often poke fun at Orangebloods publisher Geoff Ketchum for his taste in women including his outspoken admiration of Miley Cyrus who some posters believe looks like a young boy.



    Mind-Bottling - An Orangebloods gem that arose from a poster taking a substantial ribbing for saying a subject "bottled the mind."



    MNC - Acronym most commonly used to refer to football's national championship, standing for "Mythical National Championship."



    MODS!!!!!!!!!! - A common and polarizing thread title by poster jkb meant to serve as an alert to the Orangebloods moderators about film linked within the thread to a prospect who he believes is either unknown or perceived as under-rated.



    N



    Name the Defense - A common joke on Orangebloods is the topic of naming the defense. When this subject is broached it is generally by posters paying homage to the ridiculous original thread in which members did, in fact, propose gimmicky nicknames for the Texas defensive unit under Greg Robinson's first term as Texas DC.



    Newsletter - A common prank pulled by Orangebloods posters is to tell another poster that something was covered in the newsletter. Invariably, someone will ask how to get the newsletter, and that poster will be told to leave their email address in the thread. Once other posters see the email addresses being posted to receive the newsletter, a snowball effect always occurs with others popping in to do the same, even when posters within the thread are often trying to let everyone know there is in fact no newsletter and it's all a prank.



    O



    OAP (Of All Places) - Of all places is a stock reply on Orangebloods in reference to one poster reporting on Orangebloods that he had seen Chris Simms at a Chinese Restaurant. The most common retort by Orangebloods posters when hearing about a player, coach or celebrity being spotted somewhere. Example: I saw Case McCoy at Thundercloud. Reply: OAP



    OB Letter Jackets - An unbelievably bad idea by one poster on Orangebloods turned into an ongoing inside joke about OB members receiving letter jackets like high school athletes.



    Okie Lite - Most common term used by Orangebloods posters to refer to Oklahoma State University.



    OP - Probably the most commonly used acronym on Orangebloods, when a poster is addressing the OP, that means they are addressing the poster and content of the original post and not the thread's responses.



    "Orangebloods Is Not Your Diary" - A very common retort/warning from one poster to another indicating an opinion that Orangebloods is a place to discuss Longhorn athletics and related matters, not subjects about your personal life.



    OT - Thread titles preceded by OT serve as a warning to prospective viewers that the thread contains material that is off-topic to the general theme of the board which is Longhorn Sports, and to avoid the thread if not interested.



    P



    Patient Bear

    [​IMG]

    An image of a bear sitting patiently at a table that is used by Orangebloods members to indicate that they are being patient, but that it may be dangerous to keep them waiting too long for what they want.



    "Pepper Your Angus" - A common warning/note of advice to new Orangebloods members which seems to stem loosely from the phrase "prepare your anus."




    Perma-Ban - When the ban hammer drops for good, it results in a perma-ban which is having your posting and viewing rights to Orangebloods permanently disabled.




    Pit Bulls - A common and polarizing phenomenon on Orangebloods is posters relaying stories about pit bull attacks which leads to two sides forming, one for extermination of the species and the other for blaming bad pet owners.



    Poooooooor Aggies - Seemingly a favorite stadium chant, saying and general thought for most Longhorn fans and Orangebloods posters alike.



    Poors - A frequently used word in the Orangebloods vocabulary, "poors" are posters or people who claim to not have much money and who cannot afford nice things. Generally, poors are made fun of for being fat, possibly having diabetes and drinking too much soda.



    Prayer Request - Orangebloods members of all religions who believe in the power of group prayer are allowed to post prayer requests in times of struggle in the forums to alert like-minded individuals that they would appreciate a subject being in their prayers.



    Pre-Madonna - Another OB gem that started with the hilarious misspelling of "prima donna" during a rant.



    Q



    Quan - Former clutch Longhorns WR Quan Cosby is one of very few Longhorns that can be referred to by only his first name on Orangebloods forums and everyone will know exactly who the poster is talking about.



    R



    Red River Shootout

    [​IMG]

    The old name of the Texas vs. Oklahoma game played annually at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Most posters on Orangebloods, even though the name has been changed for politically correct, non-gun-connotation purposes, still refer to the North Texas hate-fest as the Red River Shootout or the RRS.



    Reverse Oreo - In 2010, Longhorns WR Dan Buckner was released from the team following an arrest and was given full rights to transfer elsewhere, which he eventually did to Arizona. Buckner's "second recruitment" was followed closely on Orangebloods and the board went bananas when Buckner, a black athlete, tweeted an update from his recruiting visit stating he had done a "reverse oreo" with two (presumably) white members of the Arizona volleyball team.



    Romance Taylor - One of the most commonly misspelled names in modern Orangebloods lore is that of Ramonce Taylor, one of the most freakish athletes of the Mack Brown era who could never keep his head on straight.



    Rome Rant on Aggy - "Did you hear what Jim Rome said about Aggy?" is commonly asked on Orangebloods as a reference a fake ranter, who, to this day, remains anonymous. The fake rant was crafted in such a convincing style that it practically went viral at the time, and some still believe Jim Rome did in fact rail the program on national airwaves.



    S



    Sally's Cookies

    [​IMG]

    Talk about Sally's cookies is Orangebloods slang for a level of softness that existed in the program under Mack Brown, whose wife Sally was viewed as a nurturing mother figure by nearly every player during his tenure.



    Sand Truck - A nebulous event on Orangebloods which can loosely be explained as a former poster building quite an impressive fake persona for himself on the forums, then, hilariously attempting to fake his own death with the cause of death stated as being hit by a sand truck. Orangebloods members will commonly ask if other members have been hit by a sand truck if they have not seem them post in a while.



    Scadaman - A tragic Orangebloods tale, Scadaman has not been heard from since posting pictures of himself and a hot "girlfriend" for the board to see and was then exposed as a liar as the happily married (not to him) female's true identity was determined.



    Scholz's - One of Austin's oldest watering holes and the official pre-game non-tailgate drinking destination of home games at DKR in the Fall.



    Sex Panther

    [​IMG]

    The nickname of former Orangebloods reporter Chip Brown, who got the moniker by Orangebloods poster TheDude41 saying "60% of the time, he's right every time," in reference to Sex Panther pheromone cologne described in the movie Anchorman.



    Sheep and Farm Animals - Texas A&M is an agricultural school and one of the oldest insults slung toward Aggies by Longhorns fans that still runs rampant on Orangebloods is the joking insinuation that sexual relationships exist between various farm animals and the Aggie faithful.



    SIAP - A thread title declaration that the poster is "sorry if already posted" when referring to a linked piece of content they feel might have already been shared to the board by someone else. Example: SIAP: Vince Young Breaks Hand Punching Student.



    Simms vs. Applewhite - Beans or no beans is a fun debate on Orangebloods, but take away the fun, add in hate and hand-wringing about the future, THEN make the debate just as big - with as many adamant supporters on each side - and you have the Simms vs. Applewhite era on Orangebloods.



    Slim - Orangebloods poster Armadillo Slim is the board's (rarely irritable) senior advisor and its unofficial voice of reason in times of chaos. There are few posters more respected, and none more likely to steal your scotch.



    Smokers - Vertical smokers, offset smokers, stick burners, Big Green Eggs (BGEs), Weber Smoky Mountains (WSMs), Electric smokers, Bradley Chip Burners, if it provides indirect heat to fine meats, it will be discussed in great depth on Orangebloods.



    Stocker - A term entrenched so deeply in the in the Orangebloods lexicon that its advent isn't clearly known, but it's believed to have originated when a poster accused Suchomel of "stocking" running back recruit Darrell Scott. The term is meant to be read as "stalker." Example: Guys, we've tried and tried to get updates from (recruit), but he won't return any of our calls." Reply: Stocker.



    Street Agent - A term used by Orangebloods posters in a derogatory fashion to describe the shady "uncles" and AAU-basketball-types who "work closely" with (often fatherless) student athletes during their recruitment processes and possibly stand to gain financially in unsavory ways.



    Student Attendance at Games - A constant nag of the board in general is the fact that students at the University of Texas do not seem to attend games with the spirit and dedication of students at other schools. Even though this was the case when most posters were in college, they tend to blame the "current" students for the lack of sizzle in the stands.



    Sunshine Pumpers - The opposite of "haters," sunshine pumpers are Orangebloods posters who see everything through positive, burnt-orange tinted glasses and go around pumping sunshine about the state of the program to all who will listen.



    Sydmil Harris Speaks Six Languages - Another phenomenon in the McCoy-Shipley/Ash Grew Up Without a TV spectrum of OB lore is the fact that Sydmil Harris, the son of a classical musician, was the first-ever European-born basketball player to lace up sneakers for the Horns and spoke six languages.



    T



    TexAgs - The big gorilla in the room when it comes to Texas A&M outlets and communities, TexAgs is a website that is partly subsidized through Texas A&M's 12th Man foundation and has corporate offices overlooking the site of A&M's soon-to-be-constructed outdoor practice areas.



    Texas Tech Bell Ringer

    Orangebloods posters will frequently refer to, or post images and gifs of, the Texas Tech Bell-Ringer during weeks where Texas will be facing the Red Raiders. Due to a camera angle, this guy is an Orangebloods legend.



    "That's Fair" - Two of the most despised words of any on Orangebloods thanks to former coach Mack Brown who would validate statements he made in press conferences constantly, and sometimes with little meaning, using the words "and that's fair" to wrap up statements which were infuriating to some vocal members. Orangebloods posters will use "and that's fair" in times where an outcome might not seem fair or just in reference to this habit from Brown. Example: "Bruce Chambers hasn't developed a serviceable tight end in years and that's fair." RELATED: Fixing It



    The Horn / 104.9 FM - Austin's only FM sports talk station with a rocky past and history of horrible management, the Horn, previously an ESPN affiliate, is now owned by a local businessman who has transitioned to the very unconventional format of local sports talk mixed with adult contemporary hits of the 80s, 90s and today.



    The Weekly Orb - It doesn't seem to come out weekly as the title would indicate, but the maniacal effort Orangebloods user Orbea puts into his financial summaries and breakdowns of the stock market are the kind of thing many pay hundreds of dollars a month to receive via financial advisor newsletters.



    TIA - Thanks in advance. Example: Best Places to Eat in Napa, TIA



    Top Frat - Orangebloods posters, when broaching the subject of fraternities, will inquire of one another if they were in a "top frat." This is in reference to whether they were in one of the top fraternities on campus - something that seems to change somewhat through time.



    TOS - The Other Site. Orangebloods has numerous competitors and even the biggest of them will grudgingly admit that their corporate goals are to eventually emerge as No. 2 in the market. These sites do good work and are run by good folks. When mentioning news from these sites, posters will often refer to the source as TOS if they are not citing breaking news. Example: "Poster on TOS says Jamaal Charles is visiting."



    Trash Cans, Bushes, etc. - Frequent references as hiding places for Orangebloods staff members in an effort to snoop around for news. Example: "Tell Alex to go hide in the bushes and make sure DeShon Elliott got into town!"



    Troll - A poster on Orangebloods whose sole purpose is inciting negative relations and causing trouble.



    TTIWWOP - This thread is worthless without pictures. Example: Just Smoked a Beautiful Brisket! Reply: TTIWWOP



    TTT/Bump - A post made in a thread to make it move from the bottom of the board back to the top due to a user adding a new response.



    U



    Users Online - A guide at the top of the page that shows how many Orangebloods users are posting and lurking at any given time.



    V



    Vietnam References - The most common reference of all inside jokes on Orangebloods, Vietnam references refer to the fact that this is not Vietnam, and there are rules. The rules are, according to posters, that anytime there is a question about/involving a wife, girlfriend or any female, a picture of said female should be included as courtesy. Remarks about Vietnam are remarks indicating the original poster has broken this rule. Example: The wife and I had a great time at Disney World! (no picture of wife attached to post) Reply: There's a Disney World in 'Nam?



    W



    Whataburger vs. In-N-Out - The most frequent "better burger" debate among Orangebloods posters which most native Texans seem to fall squarely on the side of Whataburger regarding.



    Who Do I Start - Not all Orangebloods members are as into fantasy football as some, so it is viewed as courtesy that "who do I start" questions during the NFL season should be kept in the fantasy football Sit/Start thread so as not to clog the board of Longhorns news.



    "Wine and Cheese" Crowd - A term used by fans and haters of the Texas program alike to describe the sometimes docile and lethargic nature of the University's crowds at athletic events.



    X



    X-Rated Material - SEE: Blasting Tits



    Y



    Youth Infusions and New-Found Energy - Towards the end of Mack Brown's career, Orangebloods posters were at the point of wanting to jump off a bridge any time they heard Mack Brown say he had been reinvigorated, renewed his focus, felt a sense of new-found-energy or was revitalized. Any reference to any coach feeling this way moving forward with bring back a similar, damaging rush of emotions and flashbacks.



    Your vs. You're - The most common grammar mistake on Orangebloods and likely most online communities. RELATED: Grammar Nazi



    Z



    Zone / 1300 AM - Austin's biggest AM sports station and the holders of "the deal" (exclusive broadcast radio rights) with the University. Voice of the Longhorns Craig Way is a long-standing member of its broadcast team along with former Longhorn Rod Babers.



    And then there's ...... Zing!



    And it went over you're head - so while your still confused, I'm out.

    Just read it again. It'a genius, classic!

    Pretty sure "Mind Bottling" is an Anchorman reference, and Vietnam Rules is a Big Lebowski reference, FYI.

    Remind me of what those mean. My memory is "Georgia"

    A common retort given by posters when speaking of a prospect. The replier, stating "Georgia," indicates he does not believe the prospect will be coming to Texas, and furthermore, gives the connotation that he believes the prospect will commit to an out-of-state school. This started during the recruitment period of Matt Stafford when Orangebloods posters would quickly wants talks of Matt Stafford, a Georgia-lock, shut down as speculation.

    What does LSU Holla mean, drawing a blank.

    Brantleys never used that term, from what I recall, but it was used to describe them. It actually stems from the movie Jerry McGuire.

    Pretty sure "LSU Holla" was the text that Perrilloux sent to Martellus Bennett when Bennett was announcing his commitment on TV, pretty much letting the cat out of the bag that Perrilloux was switching (not that there was really any doubt).

    See I knew there would be mess-ups how did I forget this..

    It's Happening! - An excited reference (frequently associated with maniacally-themed gifs) that pays homage to a period of time in which the Orangebloods forums were in a fever-pitch, airplane-tracking frenzy regarding the possibility of Nick Saban being named successor to Mack Brown.

    "Strong as oak" isn't a Maguire reference?

    "Cheetos" definitely has to be added.

    Would like to see a reference to MackRyan, ideally in an EricG image.

    Flighttracker has to be in there.

    Amazing work.

    Alex, Craig James killed six hookers. Mind bottling that you left that out.

    Took me a few seconds to figure out who Greg Davis was. Then I remembered, Greg Davis was the nickname for GD GD.

    For the win. FTMFW.
