So a "kicker" is just any stone that might realistically become a counter for extra points?

Because I was beginning to think that maybe a "kicker" is a stone that can be used tactically for an in-off: it "kicks" the "shooter" sideways towards the 4-foot.

So if I'm right, then a kicker doesn't have to be in the rings. A stone that you'd love to have as a potential counter can roll out of the house and still be a kicker (example: Zacharias' comeback 3-ender vs Rumiantseva https://youtu.be/1OMikOA5Wuc ).

Heck, if I'm right, then a "kicker" doesn't even have to be a stone of your color (example: Einarson's comeback 3-ender vs Robertson https://youtu.be/U8qIgLTovGM ).

Here are some easier ones. I hear this a lot, and I have a general idea of what they mean, but I'd like to have it confirmed.

What's "come up" and "come down"?

Example usage: "That came up a bit, eh?", "I think it'll come up!", "It's coming down!", "That really came down, eh?", etc.

//edit: here's an example from a real game with more context

Homan: "I just thought it would come up based on everyone's draw..."
