As some of you may have heard we are changing the name of our team for future years. For more than a decade now, the Michigan State Men’s Ultimate team has been known as Burning Couch, due to extenuating circumstances we, as a team, have decided to change our name for a more positive outlook and identity.
For some, if not all, this will be a hard truth to bear, but we hope that everyone can accept and support the decision going forward. We fully understand that change is hard, and want to emphasize that Burning Couch, and the prestige it brought our program, will not be forgotten.
As for our new name, ARC is an acronym for “Always Remember the Couch”, as well as representing Noah’s Ark, which happens to fit in with the animal nicknames each player receives. These were the two driving forces behind choosing this, and hope it is representative of our respect for Burning Couch, and our understanding of the gravity of this decision.
If you have any questions about this decision, and the smaller details of why it has happened, don’t hesitate to ask. You can send questions through our Contact Us page, or email our captains:
