The 2018 Stanford Invite semifinal between #1 North Carolina and #2 Oregon provided a glimpse into the coming next epoch of men’s college ultimate. Darkside and Ego both played with an incredible level of pace, discipline, and intention that is rarely seen in the collegiate game. This instant classic truly had it all: creative, varied set plays, stellar individual performances, high-level system understanding, and a handful of big time plays that decided it all.
