      Since they first qualified for the College Championships in 1990, the Carleton Ultimate Team has appeared in 13 semi-finals, advancing to the finals six times and winning three National Championships. In 2012, CUT has their sights set on a fourth straight trip to the finals, relying on their disciplined offensive philosophy and stingy defense.
      CUT returns 17 players from 2011 and their early season work at Warm Up, Stanford Invite, and Centex paid off with a win at the North Central Regional Championships. Their competition in a Conference with three Nationals qualifiers and a Region with five Nationals qualifiers gives CUT some of the best big game experience of any team in the 2012 college series. CUT looks to have the depth necessary to make a run deep in the Nationals tournament and defend their title.
      CUT enjoys the support of the Carleton ultimate community with 60+ CUT alumni returning each spring for the annual alumni game. This weekend of bonding and competition reminds CUT of the tradition and history of the Carleton program and helps the team focus on what’s important. It’s all about us.

      2012CollegeLogo Wisconsin O
      The UW-Madison Ultimate Frisbee club was founded in 1977. Upon creation, the team immediately began to establish a great winning tradition with 9 sectional championships and 5 final four finishes at regional play. Between 1977 and 1988, the team had an overall record of 347 wins and 189 losses.
      The Dave McClain Athletic Facility, opened in 1988, offered the club an opportunity to cleat-up during the winter season. Coincidence or not, it wasn’t until after 1988 that the club first qualified for Nationals.
      In spring of 1994, the "Hodags" team name was implemented, and has been held to this date. Tryouts were conducted for the first time in the fall of 1988.
      Since 2001, Wisconsin Hodags have 3 National titles, and 6 Finals appearances.

      Team Name: Dogs of War
      2012CollegeLogo CentralFlorida O
      The Dogs of War was first founded in the early 1980’s.  After a stint of only a few years, the team disbanded.  Years later, in 2002, the team reformed, and voted to keep the name their founding fathers chose.  As with any team formed from nothing, the first years were difficult.  In the spring of 2008, the Dogs finished the year ranked 17th in the nation and advanced to the game before the game-to-go, before losing to UNC in a fiercely competitive Atlantic Coast Regional Championship Tournament.  A majority of their squad graduated that year, and this would be the last time that the Dogs of War would play in a significant game on Sunday of Regionals for several years.  In 2010, the Dogs recorded their first tournament win at College Southerns, but fell short at Regionals and failed to advance beyond Saturday.  The following year, in 2011, the Dogs began to make noise by winning Tally Classic VI, finishing second to TUFTS at College Southerns and, finally, upsetting sectional rival, Florida, on universe point in pool play on Saturday before, once again, falling short at Regionals without advancing to a game-to-go.  In 2012, things finally came together for the Dogs of War.  With an overall record of 37-5, the Dogs have been in the finals of every tournament they attended this year, excluding a semi-finals exit at the Florida Conference Championships.  The Dogs boast tournament wins at T-Town Throwdown, Trouble in Vegas and the Southeast Regional Championship.

      One of the original college Ultimate teams, the Tufts Ultimate Frisbee team was founded in 1972 with the motto Pax et Frisbus, or peace and Frisbee. The name Elephant Men (E-Men for short) was adopted in the 1980s. The E-Men established a tradition of dominance in the Northeast, winning competitions throughout the 70s and early 80s. In 1984, Tufts hosted, and qualified for, the first Collegiate Nationals. Since then, Tufts has qualified for Nationals in 1989, 2000-2002, 2004, and most recently made prequarters in both 2009 and 2011. Home to 2002 Callahan winner Mike Zalisk as well as numerous other past and present elite club players, Tufts' history portrays it for what it is: one of the most storied and successful programs in college Ultimate history.
      With an experienced coaching staff, sixteen returners from last year's  team , and a strong group of rookies, the E-Men arrive in Boulder looking to build off of last year's success and contend for the 2012 championship.

      In 2009, LUFDA made it all the way to the National Championships in Columbus, Ohio, where we finished in 11th place.
      Looking to improve upon the groundwork laid in the past, this year's LUFDA squad is again looking to make the next step toward excellence. We will be hitting the gym, the road, and the dirt harder than ever before, and will accept nothing less than our best on every point we play. Look for us to be more battle-tested and hungrier than ever before going into the postseason.
      To our alumni, friends, family, the Luther administration, and the Luther community, thank you for your continued support--we hope to see you all on the sidelines at some point this season.
      Founded in 2003 by a chipper young lad Dave Curtis, LUFDA (Luther Ultimate Flying Disc Association), has taken significant strides in the last four years. Luther first qualified for Nationals in 2009, and has established itself as a perennial contender in the North Central region. After a 12th place finish in Boulder last year, Luther is returning in 2012 to make a statement. A strong core of leaders, anchored around the infamous Eric "EJ" Johnson, has the experience and mentatily necessary to make noise in Boulder. Beware of the Johnson doppelgänger as younger brother Josh "JJ" Johnson has started to make noise after originally earning a spot on the roster as EJ’s look-a-like, inspired by Phil "BJ" Murray. Hate it or Love it...LUFDA’s on top.

      Team Name: Grey Duck
      2012CollegeLogo Minnesota O
      Our reputation doesn’t precede us.  To those looking for big names to read about here or a tremendous story of tradition, we’re sorry, we don’t really have one.  The most notable name we have is that of our coach, Charlie Reznikoff (due more to personality than anything) who is the mastermind and architect behind the Grey Duck program. Four years ago, armed with a talented freshman class, experienced upperclassmen, and a name that struck fear in no one’s heart, our coach laid the foundation for a successful college ultimate program.  Four years later, the baby freshman-ducklings have become the alpha-males of the duck pond and are flanked by the strongest Flock in school history.  Our collective persona uncannily resembles our mascot; Unlike many other birds, the Grey Duck doesn’t have colorful feathers for attracting mates, melodious songs of communication, or a style of flight that can be described as anything other than "unremarkable".  But if you have ever spent time observing duck ponds then you know what happens when you ruffle a duck’s feathers.  Moral of the beak is, you may not know who we are before you play us, but you will once we’re done with you.

      Mamabird has faced a lot of adversity this year after the graduation of 13 key players from the 2011 semifinalist roster. A consistently top 10 team, Mamabird has qualified for Nationals for the past 14 years, holding the USAU record. Since 2005, Mamabird has won their region every year, even after the switch from Southwest to South Central in 2011. Mamabird won the championship in 2004; made it to the finals in 2009, 2007, 2005, and 2001, and has made it to the semifinals in 2011, 2008, 2003, and 2000. This year, Bird hopes to join the 2004 team in championship history in front of their hometown crowd of Boulder, CO.

      Texas Ultimate was born back in the 80's and rose to a finals finish in '88 and semi-finals in '89 under the leadership and big throws of G.C. and huge grabs by Bagger. Texas continued to compete at Nationals through the early 90's under strong teams lead by Homey and Chris Stone. Unfortunately, Texas went missing throughout the mid to late 90's.
      The new millennium brought a new team name and the renewed goal to compete at Nationals again under the guidance of Skippy, ScottyB, and Bchill. After a loss in the finals at Regionals in 2000, in the following season (2001) the program was born when UT established their first ever B team. The focus was to grow stronger by bringing in new talent and developing returning players.
      The team agreed on TUFF (Texas Ultimate Frisbee Friends) just before the 2002 spring season. Focused training earned TUFF their bid to Nationals after a Regional Championship in Little Rock, Arkansas. Since then, the team has qualified for Nationals 9 out of the last 11 years and has become one of the premier teams in the country.

      2012CollegeLogo NorthCarolina O
      Darkside began in the fall of 1993, when a couple of Freshmen at UNC got together with the idea of forming an Ultimate team.  By 1995 Darkside had qualified for its first Regional tournament.  In 1999, Darkside qualified for its first ever berth to Nationals.  In 2000, the team won Sectionals and Regionals on the way to a second Nationals bid.  With growing interest in the sport of Ultimate, a B team was created on campus, (B-atCH) in 2007.
      In 2001 Darkside again qualified for Nationals and established itself as a perennial regional power.  2002 was a rebuilding year and despite the efforts of Callahan Nominee Rhett Nichols and a highly talented rookie class, Darkside failed to qualify for Nationals.
      Darkside has since been to Nationals twice before now, in 2005 and 2007.  This year we returned 22 of 27 players.
      Beyond these superficial accolades exists a collection of upstanding young gentlemen.  Darkside is best described as a group of gentlemen whose dashing good looks and unflappable southern charm are outweighed only by their razor-sharp disc skills, breathtaking athleticism and blinding, white-hot competitive fire.  More important still is their propensity for camaraderie.  Like soldiers headed to war, they must rely on each other and trust each other.  Being placed in competitive situations such as these creates an environment where a tight-knit sense of brotherhood is not jus commonplace, it is inevitable.

      Ohio University qualified for the first College Nationals in 1984 and spent many of the years since competing at the regional level.  After missing Regionals in 2009 ending the longest running qualifying streak in the section, the team re-committed to working hard and playing all year round.  Players joined their local club teams in addition to an OU alumni and college student club team being formed. OU saw continued improvement in the following college seasons before finishing 21st in the final College Rankings in the 2011 season.  This season, Ohio committed to taking the program to the next level and performed well enough during the Regular Season to earn the Ohio Valley a second bid to Nationals.  Ohio then proceeded to win the Ohio Conference Championship for the second year in a row and headed into Ohio Valley Regionals as the #2 seed behind Pittsburgh.  The team made it all the way to the finals before losing to Pitt but was able to beat conference foe, Ohio State, 15-8 in the backdoor game to go to Nationals. Ohio will be heading to Boulder eager to prove that they belong with the National elite.

      This Sundodgers are a hodge-podge team composed of multi-year veterans, three transfers, and a cohort of athletic rookies, who contributed more at Regionals than yours did all year. The team is looking forward to its second straight Nationals appearance.  This is the programs first time going to Nationals in back-to-back years. 
      Last year's trip to Boulder was highlighted by knocking off reigning champion Florida only to blow a hefty lead and fall to regional rival Ego in pre-quarters. That loss ended the careers of 11 seniors, including two first team all-region players. 
      This year, after a strong start at Santa Barbara and Prez Day, we struggled at Centex, ensuring that there would only be two bids for the Northwest. We played through the backdoor bracket at Regionals to upset Whitman and earn our bid. Captained by Duncan Linn, Michael ‘O-Fro’ Capeloto, and Dave Benkeser, we are looking to prove that last year's success was no fluke and that it doesn't take NexGen kids to be a successful college program. Ewing theory, anyone?
      Thanks to long-time coaches Pat McCarthy and Gabe Pedersen, the team hasn't missed a beat after replacing 11 players and is aiming to improve upon last year’s showing. Hopefully, we will establish that UW belongs among the college elite (and maybe even recruit some Seattle youth players, stupid Carleton).

      Founded in the early 1970’s, Michigan State Ultimate has had a series of ups and downs. In the early years, Michigan State even qualified for Worlds, but since then, they had many years of failing to qualify for nationals. Until the early 2000s, MSU hadn’t had much success until Luscious N’ Delicious and Aaron Bongaard burst onto the East Lansing campus and took the team to nationals in 2004. MSU qualified for nationals the next two years, but proceeded to fall into a slump after losing so many talented players in 2006. The Burning Couch has slowly been building itself back up to being on the national scene from leadership like Phil Sommer, Alex Edinger, Ryan Heffernan, and Jesse Ellwood. After failing to qualify for Sunday of regionals from 2007-2009, MSU found their way to three consecutive years of earning the one seed at regionals. The Burning Couch is finally back to nationals after a six year hiatus in partial thanks to some inspirational players like Aaron Ziegler, Dave Hochhalter and Jesse Ellwood. This team’s grit, athleticism and grinding defense is not only something they constantly work towards improving, but it is also something they take serious pride in. MSU is finally back at the big dance, and they are ready to burn.

      Georgia Tech Tribe has been in existence for nearly 30 years. The team has made four previous Nationals appearances, most recently in 1992, when a third of the team hadn't even been born. 1992 saw the team go 3-2 at Nationals, losing only to champion Oregon and finalist Cornell. Since that time, the program has continued to be a regional contender and developed well over a dozen future club nationals participants for Chain Lightning, Tanasi, Machine, and Bucket. In 1998, the team was renamed "A Tribe Called Tech" (usually shortened simply to "Tribe") in homage to "A Tribe Called Quest." More recently, 2006 and 2010 were excellent seasons for the team, each time losing in the game to go to Nationals, from regions that included the eventual champion and at least one quarterfinalist. In 2012, standout Nick Lance and transfer Jay Clark helped lead Tribe to a 29-12 season, two tournament wins, and a bid to Nationals.

      The Davis Dogs celebrated their thirtieth anniversary in 2011, and are very excited to take their first trip to Nationals. (Include notable alumni?) The 2011 season marked the first year the Dogs (and NorCal section) played in the SoCal Region. Previous Dogs squads have had more firepower and standout players, but this year’s team prides itself on unselfish play and team cohesion.

      Having a similar mindset as Carleton College: we focus on building as a team instead of building our top tier individuals (aka Florida). 
      Aim to peek during the series and surprise the nation.  Success. 
      We under-performed at Southerns and Chicago Invite, but took what we learned from our losses and created a stronger team for the series.

      2012CollegeLogo Oregon W
      Since the mid-80s the University of Oregon has been a breeding ground for Ultimate talent.  Regularly comprised of a generous mix of previous Junior Worlds team members, Callahan nominees, experienced high school players, ex-varsity superstars Fugue shines as an athletic, skill-based, hardworking team year after year.  
      In recent years, Fugue has produced national-caliber results including many annual wins at large tournaments such as the President’s Day Invite and the Stanford Invite.  Fugue has also managed two third place finishes at College Nationals (2009 and 2011) and grabbed the gold in 2010 at the same event.  
      This year’s team strays little from the typical hard-working, dedicated, love-filled image of Fugue from years past.  After winning the Pres Day Invite and the highly competitive NW Conferences (Cascade) and Regionals, the ladies of Fugue 2012 have their eyes set on that shiny bit of coveted gold in Boulder and plan to use their determined, gritty defense, precision disc skills and unexplainable love for one another to make it to the top.

      2012CollegeLogo California W
      If you’ve ever played the Pie Queens, you may very well have seen us cheering our own rendition of the California fight song (complete with original dance moves and an air of general ridiculousness):
      "We are called the Berkeley Pie Queens.
      We go to school at UCB.
      We study people, plants, paint, the earth,
      numbers and chemistry.
      We dance like nobody is watching;
      we squat 'til our quads burn.
      And when we don our flair,
      we put the disc in air,
      cause we're an Ultimate team!"
      And ain’t it the truth... This year, the Pie Queens are a 22 woman (plus our two amazing coaches) crew of diverse, brilliant and incredibly goofy Ultimate players. We take on the game with intensity and fire, but never forget the Pie Queen spirit that has supported the program since its foundation over TWENTY years ago! Our name comes from "Lois the Pie Queen," a diner in Oakland with what one yelper called "seriously scrumptious mouthwatering pies." (Fun Fact: an empty pie tin is the oldest relative of the frisbee!) The Queens have been consistent National contenders and regularly feed players onto elite club teams in the Bay Area and beyond.
      We dance, we bake, we wear purple and giggle excessively, but when it comes down to it, we love to CRUSH. "We're gonna scar and pillage the land, just like El Nino. We'll rock this city, it's good to be a Queen, yo!"

Last year, captains Shannon McVey and Devon Ericksen with a coaching staff of James Burke and David Allison led Hydra to a 12th place finish at Centex and a 3rd place finish in the AC region, qualifying the team for the College Championships for the first time in 7 years. One Nationals was not enough for Hydra, and with the addition of Manu Argilli to the coaching staff and Gena "Sunshine" Kohler to the captain squad, Hydra was ready to do what it takes to return to Boulder. With our first goal of winning the AC region accomplished, Hydra is ready to lay down the hammer at Nationals.

      Pleiades was founded in 1995 by Emily Larson when the female ultimate players at UNC decided to split from Darkside to form a women’s team. After several name changes, UNC Women’s Ultimate became Pleiades, or the "seven sisters" from Greek mythology. In 2001, Lindsey Hack and her colleagues formed a B team in order to give more UNC students the opportunity to learn the game of ultimate and hone their skills before trying out for the A team. Pleiades has attended nationals for the past five years and is consistently one of the top-ranked teams in the Atlantic Coast region. Our 2012 team consists of 17 baller athletes, 2 engaged to be married coaches, and 1 phenomenal dog.

      Iowa Women’s Ultimate started in the 90’s. Saucy Nancy attended Nationals in 2004 and 2005 and finished 5th in 2005. After 2005 we suffered from a lack of solid leadership and commitment. Iowa fell of the map until Megan Greenwood, Andrea Uhl, and Kristen Appelson saw the potential for the team to rebuild. In 2010 Saucy had an influx of talented and athletic players to add to the team from the previous year that had begun to take a more competitive attitude towards the game. Spring of 2010 Saucy placed 4th in the Central College Women’s Regionals. After that it became more realistic to many of the players that Nationals was a goal to reach for. In 2011 Saucy returned to Nationals for the first time since 2005 and went undefeated at North Central Regionals to be Regional champions for the first time in all of University of Iowa Ultimate’s history. Saucy is excited and proud to participate in 2012 Nationals.

      Team Name: Woman Scorned
      2012CollegeLogo IowaState W
      Woman Scorned was founded in 2002 by Rachel Derscheid who continued to coach the team to our first College Nationals appearance in 2009. Last season, Scorned returned to the tournament to take home a tenth place finish. This season our team returns for a 3rd time to compete for the national title.
      Throughout our history we have maintained these core beliefs:
      1: Having fun is the most important thing. Winning does not dictate fun. If we play the game right and give all we have, ultimate is fun whether we win or lose.
      2: We want to be the team that every team wants to play. We compete our hardest against every opponent but never at the sacrifice of spirit.
      3: Commit to each other as one cohesive team. Hold yourself and your teammates accountable, and value each other for everything each person contributes.
      The team’s name was derived from the quote by William Congreve "Heav'n has no rage like love to hatred turned. Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn'd." With the support of our friends, families, and alumni we are going to feel the love and unleash the fury on Boulder.

      Team Name: Thunderbirds
      2012CollegeLogo BritishColumbia W
      The UBC Thunderbirds Women’s Ultimate Team was founded in 1997, and became the first ever Canadian team to play in a UPA National Championships. The team finished second that year at UPA College Nationals, and a decade later they claimed their first UPA College Championship Title, in 2008. There are currently few individuals remaining from that golden year, and a new generation of young women have stepped up to put the dream back into motion. In 2011, the team achieved their goal of returning to Boulder since 2008, but their shaky performance indicated the shock of finally reaching the national stage. The desire for redemption served as fuel for their next season. 
      Having lost half of their veteran players at the start of the season, the thought of securing another bid to Nationals seemed rather daunting. But the leadership refused to consider it a ‘rebuilding year’ and, early on, adapted the mentality that the team had the potential to become unstoppable. Under the sharp-eyed leadership of coach Tasia Balding, the T-Birds run a system that spreads responsibility across the entire team, rather than focusing on a couple individuals. There is a deep sense of trust in each player wearing a UBC jersey. Leading up to Nationals, the T-Birds have also had several opportunities to face top-ranked Regional rivals Oregon and Washington, contributing much to their growth and experience. With an emphasis on psychological discipline and an unwavering belief in their potential, the T-Birds are prepared to fight for the title.

      juniors, seniors, and grad students. We are fast, aggressive and extremely good-
      looking. Speaking of good-looking, our coaches this year have pushed us to be the
      best team we can be and we never could have made it this far without them. In
      addition to our wonderful coaching staff, Melee carries the support of the entire
      Austin Ultimate community and South Central Region. We are so fortunate to have
      such wonderful peers and we are looking forward to representing our city and
      region with Southern Pride!
      How did we make it this far? Melee culture is defined by two words: Melee Heart.
      Melee Heart is the work-hard, play-hard, team-first attitude that our program
      fosters. Whether it’s 6:30 am workouts, Saturday morning practice, or late-
      night study parties, Melee sticks together. We have a saying down here in Austin,
      Texas: "It’s all about Melee."
      We play every game with passion and intensity – as if it were our last game as a
      team. #YOLO.

      Bound by a love for the game and each other, Stanford Superfly is bringing a small, dedicated team to Nationals this year who are excited to lay it out on the field. Superfly has arguably one of the most storied legacies within all of College Women’s Ultimate.  Yet while the team would be remiss if it didn’t mention how the program has been in the national championship finals eleven times since 1995, this year’s Superfly takes absolutely nothing for granted. With veteran coaches Robin Davis and Jamie Nuwer at the helm, Superfly didn’t bat an eye at losing more than half of their roster at the end of the 2011 season. The team picked up eight phenomenal rookies and showed early on in the season that they had the pure determination and heart to play with the best teams in the country. Improving with every tournament, Superfly most recently pulled out an impressive three back-to-back wins at Southwest Regionals to qualify for Nationals in the craziest and most competitive region in the country. The team continues on the tradition of 7am sprint practice and "winning the fields," but has also introduced and encouraged the use of more sparkles, rainbows, and unicorns into the program. This year’s Superfly is fast, fit, fun-loving, and incredibly excited to be back in Boulder.

      All aboard! A certain train is rolling into Boulder this weekend. That’s right, FEVER PAIN TRAIN is stopping at a station near you! Boasting a team composed of half returners and half terrifyingly wicked-awesome rookies, Fever is bringing a new, unique group to this year’s games, full of team spirit and intense play. Fever ultimate changed the course of its history last year with the team’s first appearance at the USA Ultimate College Championships since its beginnings in 2002. With an undefeated regional showing and several hard-fought tournament appearances, the Fever ladies continue to work toward their goal of a national title under captains Cassie Swafford and Paige "Diddy" Soper, as well as the tutelage of dedicated coaches Deanna Ball, Brent Reeb, and Nick "Snaps" Hamilton. An ever-growing presence in the competitive ultimate world and an unstoppable force of Fever love beyond, the Fever Pain Train is gearing up and building steam as they pull into the 2012 games…but be forewarned, our brakes are out and we’re not stopping!

      Team Name: Sideshow
      2012CollegeLogo Delaware W
      Sideshow was originally named Peggy Cronin's Lunar Ultimate and then we were High Piracy. We became Sideshow when a guy named Sideshow (who looked like Sideshow Bob) was hit by a bus and passed away. The women's team wasn't formed until the name Sideshow came about. This is our fourth time attending Nationals, with the past three being in 2003, 2006, and 2007. A tradition that has been with Sideshow for as long as alumni can remember is "The Bag". "The Bag" is a collection of awesome items contributed by each member of the team that are intended to inspire and fire up the team at the start of the weekend to play gutless, hard fought defense. At the end of the weekend, the team then votes on the player who they think played the best defense to win "The Bag".
