Terminology[edit]

  • On the bubble (sports) – Can apply to any sport or other entertainment, but often taken to mean either a team that is barely in contention for a post-season berth and needs to either win and/or have the results of other team's games go a certain way for the team to make the post-season; or a player who is in contention for a spot on a team's roster but needs to do certain things to be considered. Sports-related articles in which the term has been used: [19] and [20] [21]
  • Clemsoning-sourced [22] and [23]. The act of delivering an inexplicably disappointing performance, usually within the context of a college football season. Clemson has clemsoned for the past three years in the school's losses to West Virginia, and twice to Florida State, respectively.
