Storyline

Dean Wormer is impressed by how far Blotto can punt a football, so he recruits him for the college football team for the upcoming big game. But when Blotto refuses to play, the Deltas secretly substitute the equally overweight, but far-greater clumsy, Flounder in his place, who by his own admission doesn't have a sports gene in his body. So it's up to Otter, D-Day, Pinto, and the rest of the Deltas to figure ways to help the team win and keep Flounder from... floundering on the field, and not give the Dean a reason to eject Blotto from college.
