I know what flapping is, but why would it be reported like it is above (i.e.: Flapping between port x and port y).  We have servers plugged into these ports

Do you have NIC teaming setup on the servers?  If so, you can see this if the NIC is doing load balancing instead of "fail on fault".  Verify the NIC teaming configuration is set to "fail on fault".

yea the nics are set to team.  So I want it to fail on fault correct? Not load balance?

Yes, correct, fail on fault.  Only use load balance when you have an etherchannel connection with the switch.
