bandit safety
 n.— «Entering spring, Andrews and Pugh were listed at the same position in the team’s prospectus, what West Virginia refers to as its “bandit” safety in its tricky 3-3-5 defense. But, to get both on the field at the same time, they split them up, putting Pugh at the “spur” safety spot while Boogie Allen plays at free safety.» —“Andrews, Pugh face big challenge” by Bob Hertzel in Morgantown Times West Virginian (Fairmont) Apr. 13, 2008.
