It’s time to unwrap some presents as we introduce the 12 Days of College Ultimate. Through December 21st, we will be releasing one gift per day, though don’t count on getting any partridges in pear trees: it’s all college ultimate. From highlight videos to player chatter to a giant bracket, we’ve got a little something for everyone.

On Day 7 of the 12 Days of College Ultimate, we asked our staff for their preseason choices for the seven players they could put on a line together on “universe” point. Mr. Swackhammer has issued his challenge and we need seven D-I and D-III college players to defend the planet. Or something. You get the idea. Less ado, more hype.
