MILWAUKEE--In the most embarrassing story out of this weekend’s D-III College Championships, a thoroughly confused Carleton CUT showed up to D-III nationals by mistake.
Carleton College fields two extremely successful men’s ultimate teams; Carleton Ultimate Team (CUT) competes in USA Ultimate’s Division I, while Gods of Plastic (GOP) competes in Division III.
Exactly how the error occurred is unclear, as team captains were too upset to discuss the incident in detail.
“I don’t want to talk about it,” said a visibly frustrated Simon Montague before rounding up his players for the five-hour drive back to campus.
GOP players were apparently aware of the snafu well in advance, but decided not to inform their CUT counterparts.
“Oh heck yeah,” said GOP captain Scott Graber, barely stifling a laugh. “Of course we knew. We saw this coming like…three weeks ago. We just thought it would be a lot funnier not to say anything. Totally worth it.”
He has a point.
CUT will have to regroup for D-I Nationals next weekend.
