Gary Dolphin has been deemed "The Voice of the Hawkeyes" by the University of Iowa.  During Saturday's game against Michigan., Dolphin referred to Michigan running back Fitz Toussaint as a "jiggaboo".  As you'll hear, Dolphin knew he said something he shouldn't have judging by his quick attempt to correct himself.

When I heard it, I really didn't know what it meant, but I knew it didn't sound good. Now, you won't find "jiggaboo" in Merriam-Webster, so we turned to the next best thing - Urban Dictionary. It defines "jiggaboo" as:
"a really dark skinned black person with strong negroid features (ie. big lips, wide nose, nappy hair)"
Yeah, I think jitterbug was definitely the word you were looking for, Mr. Dolphin. Shifty running backs have been called jitterbugs before. But, if you turn back to trusty Urban Dictionary for the definition of "jitterbug", you'll see bullet point #6 that defines it as "an African American who cannot hold a steady job". Toussaint has 98 carries to fellow UofM RB Vincent Smith's 47, so Fitz doesn't seem to fill the "jitterbug" role either. But hey, you can't make this up.

Maybe Mr. Dolphin should just refer to running backs as good or fast in the future.
