NCAA Sends Championship Banner To Wrong School

No, really.

If this had been a mix-up between Auburn and Alabama, heads would've rolled.

The Grand Forks Herald is reporting that the NCAA sent the University of North Dakota the 2011 NCAA FCS championship banner. The problem here is that North Dakota State, UND’s main rival, was actually the winner. The package was even addressed to UND’s athletic director, Brian Faison, meaning it wasn’t simply an address flip-flop.

Sure, interns are probably responsible for these kinds of tasks at the NCAA, but this is still pretty embarrassing.
