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.

So Far
15 September 2018 | by merenSee all my reviews

So far have watched 2 Episodes which you can find 12 of the 13 Episodes on You Tube. This is up there with some of the Funniest American Football Episodes of TV Series or Movies ever. Reminds me of Necessary Roughness, and the Married With Children Episode. This show needs to be released on DVD, or included as part of an Animal House DVD Offering. The Quality of this Episode was a lot better then the quality of the 1st one which I also found on You tube.
