Inspired by Ramzy and quoting him almost entirely, I took up the challege to get this done.  And apparently I've failed...here's the email I just receivd:

Thanks for your definition of Herbstreit Effect!

Urban Dictionary


Herbstreit Effect

1. "Constantly regurgitating talking points that fulfill a boring narrative, with the sole purpose of dividing a topic into simplistic good and bad sides."

2. "Continually suffering from an acute case of message fatigue."

3. "Consistently using catch phrases such as":

Speed and confidence.

Passes the "look" test.

Creating in space.

Making all the throws.

Looks good in a uniform.

"I'm so sick of listening to the guys on the radio and tv pander to the uneducated masses. It's like they're all starting to suffer from the Herbstreit Effect."

Was it you BDude who was pushing to get this done?  I didn't have the time (or the inclination) to go back and look, but the inspiration certainly came from these pages...

So Big Love to all the 11dubsters out there...

Tressel is a word in Urban Dictionary

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Is 'Urban Dictionary Editor' a useful thing to put on my CV - if it is do you know what the benefits are

Being an Urban Dictonary Editor makes one as witty as Denny.  Which is pretty witty.
