Synopsis (from TV.com) - Dean Wormer is impressed by how far Blotto can punt a football, so he recruits him for the football team for the upcoming big game. But when Blotto refuses to play, the Deltas put in a secret substitute, Flounder in his place, who by his own admission doesn't have a sports gene in his body. So it's up to 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.
