The changing media landscape for both college coaches and recruits can be a confusing one. This is especially true when it comes to abbreviations, hashtags, and other so called "internet slang" you might see in the form of a text, tweet, or facebook post. Avoid saying things that make someone "SMDH," and learn up on the latest below!

ABC = Another Bad Creation. Usually followed by a picture of Lane Kiffin's most recent poop.

ACCCG = I Ate The Bones

AFAIK= Am Following Ambulance In Knoxville.

IDGAF = Irradiated Defense Gets All Finishes (The LSU 2013 team creed.)

LMAO: Les Miles Amateur Orthodontist. Common text message for LSU recruits explaining why coach needs you to come to a Baton Rouge storage unit with a lot of Tylenol, some paper towels, and no questions asked.
