The term bluecoat has been known to be used to describe one of the keepers of the peace in the dining halls of the University of Texas at Austin. They are identified by their blue lab coats emblazoned with the UT Department of Housing and Food Services logo and their trademark humorless nature. Should you attempt to scuplt five plates of mashed potatoes into the likeness of Bea Arthur or evaluate the aerodynamic properties of a piece of fried hoki, insure that you are well out of the view of this species of John Law. Your future as a professional student will depend upon it.

Blue"coat` (?), n.

One dressed in blue, as a soldier, a sailor, a beadle, etc.
