The University of Oregon's oversight board for club sports has ended the Ultimate Frisbee team's season -- although the squad was a leading contender for a national championship -- following complaints that team members played in the nude in a recent match against Oregon State University, The Eugene Register-Guard reported. Officials noted that the team had previously been involved in drinking incidents and had received speeding tickets. Team leaders didn't deny the various infractions, but requested that they be viewed in context. The Register-Guard reported that Dusty Becker, a co-captain, told the board: "Speeding, drinking, nudity — they’re not bad things... They’re things a big portion of the community doesn’t think are wrong.”
