Your RBR Word of the Day: vituperation

New, comment
vituperation \vy-too-puh-RAY-shuhn, -tyoo-\, noun:
1. The act or an instance of speaking abusively to or about.
2. Sustained and severely abusive language.

The idea of viscious vituperation by the UCF coaching staff towards what players described as a "visibly struggling, gasping for breath and staggering" Ereck Plancher just before his fatal collapse is a sickening thought, and I agree that every program in the country should have their practice procedures scrutinized in order to make sure such avoidable tragedies never happen again.
