Your RBR Word of the Day: mumpsimus

mumpsimus \MUHMP-suh-muhs\ , noun:
1. Adherence to or persistence in an erroneous use of language, memorization, practice, belief, etc., out of habit or obstinacy.
2. A person who persists in a mistaken expression or practice.

Though I'm quite certain Coach Kines never actually said "inside trout," I like to think the mumpsimus among Alabama fans is a sign of fond respect for the beloved former defensive coordinator.
