The New Lingo

Get with the new lingo, folks.

While reading through the sports news yesterday, I noticed these comments…

One from Auburn:

Coaches were more even handed with the offense, with offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler saying he was encouraged by the demeanor of quarterback Kiehl Frazier in his first start, as well as the 100-yard games from running back Tre Mason and wide receiver Emory Blake.

And one from Mississippi State:

“I always look at things for the quarterback to improve from, but I really liked how he handled what his game-day demeanor was,” Mullen said. “And not just how it was on the field but how he was on the sideline and with every adjustment we made during the game.”

Did you get that? Both coaches were pleased with their quarterback’s demeanor during last week’s games. Does that mean they were pleased that they weren’t crying on the field or not puking in the huddle? Is demeanor something you have to coach?

That’s a new one on me.
