alligator arms
 n.pl.— «“Our goal is to hit a receiver so hard and so often they’ll catch the ball like an alligator. If you’ve ever seen an alligator, their arms are about three inches long. We want to hit a receiver enough to where he doesn’t want to reach very far or very often.”—Kevin Steele, secondary coach of No. 19 Tennessee.» —“Sports News” Associated Press Nov. 6, 1987.
