What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Thanks to the UPS Guy, the University of North Dakota Has Another Football Championship Banner

The University of North Dakota won its only NCAA Football Championship in 2001. But now it has two championship banners, thanks to a shipping mistake (from the Grand Forks Herald).

The UND athletic department received a package Wednesday that drew a few chuckles — at the expense of the NCAA.

The package included the 2011 NCAA Division I football championship banner intended for North Dakota State, which claimed the title in January with a win against Sam Houston State in Frisco, Texas.

The NCAA shipped the championship banner with good intentions but sent it to UND — North Dakota State’s biggest rival.

It’s an honest enough mistake even for the dilcues at the NCAA.

The package was addressed to Mr. Brian Faison, Athletics Director, North Dakota State University, Hyslop Sports Center, Grand Forks, N.D.

For those of who who don’t know, North Dakota State University is in Fargo, where the University of North Dakota is in Grand Forks. Trust me, I’ve lived in North Dakota, and trying to tell the difference between Fargo and Grand Forks is like trying to feel the difference between a lemon and a lime while wearing boxing gloves.

But the NCAA is still a bunch of dipshits…

    Pretty funny story, man.

    Congrats on your almost national championship.

    I swear to God this is true. Five minutes ago our UPS guy delivered a package to our house. It was for our next-door neighbor. This hasn’t happened to us in all the years we’ve lived here. (It was too small to be a championship banner so I had no issue with re-delivering it)
