GITDAWERDOUT: A glossary of terms and phrases we've made up (with some help from our friends)

A beginners' guide to understanding Garnet And Black Attack's litany of in-jokes.

I have lived with my girlfriend for six years. I can predict what she's about to say by noticing the faintest twitch of her forehead. Still, it often feels like we are separated by a language. Every day we forego entire conversations because telling her why I'm laughing at my phone would require me to explain far too much internet backstory. (e.g., "You see, AJ Cann's tweet was really funny because he's making fun of Shon Carson, who takes all of these selfies in which he is wearing no facial expression or shirt whatsoever.")

We compiled this glossary with people like her in mind -- Gamecock fans who have better things to do than be on Twitter every day.

We'll update this list as new terms enter the lexicon. (And if there's anything else you'd like to see us define, please avail yourself of the comments section.)

#2Sprainz - 1) Connor Shaw, or 2) any person leading an improbable sports comeback while possessing at least two sprained knee ligaments.

a banana and some grapes - The entirety of Jadeveon Clowney's caloric intake on the day of the 2013 season opener against North Carolina. Can be used to describe a state of malnourishment or having eaten just a small amount of food.

#AngelBoiSwagg - Most commonly used as a proper noun referring to South Carolina quarterback Dylan Thompson. Can also be used to describe a person sharing characteristics of Dylan Thompson, such as being disproportionately #blessed or awkwardly inserting Biblical messages into post-game press conferences or Instagram captions.

aww, definitely - an affirmative response, especially when delivered by Marcus Lattimore following a question such as "Do you prepare for Georgia the same as you would any other game?"
