But UD loves it when the school’s name is… I don’t know, for example University of the Incarnate Word… So that the headlines couple that name with Coach Accused of Roughing Up Player. The more pious the name, the more hilarious the coaching game…

    Got me thinking in a characteristically digressive way: what’s an incarnate word — “vegetables?”

    Heisman Trophy Made of Meat

    Oops, severely jet-lagged, I succumbed to a homographical error, involving which meaning of the prefix “in” is used in “incarnate.” The in of “inadequate” and “insincere” or something else?

    Something else: this version means “embodied in.” So used with flesh it means embodied in flesh: say the Heisman Trophy made of meat.

    I appreciate the SOSM’s mercy. Sorry for having been inattentive.

    The word was made flesh, so I guess that means that if words don’t work, a coach can grab you by the throat. Gotta put the faith into action…..

    Helicopter parents! Maybe they ARE good for something.
