I'm going to guess that Coffin Corner Kick originated in the 1970s by Ray Guy.

Mario Mendoza played for the Pirates and the Mariners, and I always thought it was George Brett who coined the "Mendoza Line", but I double checked his Wikipedia page and he credits his Mariners teammates Bruce Bochte and Tom Paciorek with inventing it. When Brett was chasing .400 in 1980 he mentioned the "Mendoza Line" in an interview and that is how it came into public prominence.

Thank you all.


All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Was going to say that the Baltimore Chop was coined for Wee Willie Keeler's hitting style where he would chop the ball downward to have it bounce so high that he would beat the throw to first. Originated when he played in Baltimore in the 1890s (like Ed said before me).

Okay, Frank.

The Lambeau Leap originated in the 1990s, the people associated with it are Reggie White and LeRoy Butler, and occurred in Green Bay, WI.

How is that?

Remaining answers have been posted.

The groundskeeper could be added to #1.

Carpenter played for Army from 1957-59 before serving in Vietnam.

The origin of the suicide squeeze surprised me.

The answer to #4 is urban legend. 1940 is a better date for the term, not associated with anyone specific.

Taft is probably okay for #5, but Brother Jasper beat him by nearly 30 years.

Pop Warner is generally credited with the origin of the single wing.

Dean Smith popularized the 4 corners, but it was used first by WV Tech.

Sewell is correct, but the eephus dates to 1935.

I thought someone would say Gifford instead of Jackson, who was in the booth for the first year only.

The Mendoza line was coined by Seattle teammates, who then teased Brett in a slump. Brett passed it on to Berman and ESPN.

A Hail Mary play dates to the 4 horsemen era of Notre Dame football. The first was a 19 yard game winning pass. Catholic schools used Hail Marys in the huddle thereafter, when they needed a game winning score. Staubach’s pass in 1975 popularized the term and of course Flutie added to the Hail Mary lore several years later.

There may be other answers that are equally valid, but I made an effort to establish the true origin.

I could not prove the existence of Furbusher State, but the tale related to Kerner and his allergy to football leather is worth looking up.

Bill Carpenter was the lonely end. I saw him play in the late 50's against West Virginia at West Point. He may have been dubbed that by quarterback and team mate Pete Dawkins, who I believe won the Heisman in '58 or '59.
Bill did serve in Vietnam and become noteworthy by calling in fire his own position when about to be overrun by superior NVA forces. I think he was killed and awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
