hog-dogging

hog-dogging
 n.— «Richardson’s previous group of outstanding players who inspired this hostility might have responded more to Richardson’s liking than his current players. Oliver Miller and Todd Day, with blatant taunting and hog-dogging, made it easy for opposing fans to dislike Arkansas. They reveled and played lights out when confronted with such hostility.» —“Bud’s Favorites at Moment of Truth” by Bill Connors Tulsa World (Okla.) Mar. 2, 1995. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
