pooch punt
 n.— «In the case where the punting team is close to the opponent’s goalline, the punter may try to put the ball out of bounds as close as possible to the opponent’s goalline (“coffin corner”) or as close as possible to the opponent’s goalline where his teammates can “down” the ball before it reaches the end-zone (“pooch punt”).» —“A Punt Returner Location Problem” by Jack Brimberg, W.J. Hurley, R.E. Johnson Operations Research May-June, 1999. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
