Q: Is it time once again for the RBR Word of the Day?

A: Yeah it is.

propitiate \pro-PISH-ee-ayt\, transitive verb:

To render favorably inclined; to appease; to conciliate (one offended).

In light of the continually emerging details of Rashad Johnson's arrest, it's no wonder Coach Saban didn't punish the senior immediately in order to propitiate the fans and media calling for his dismissal.
