Hodags held the annual Blue/Black scrimmage last Thursday night at the McClain Center. Highlights are shown here.
After 6 hard weeks of tryouts the remaining players have been split up into two teams and are given a final chance to prove they deserve a spot on this year's Hodag roster. Both teams are led by a Hodag captain as well as several other returning players. This is the fifth year in a row that the Hodags have hosted the No Wisconsequences tournament, and the level of competition looks to be incredibly high!

"Blue Print: Road to Repeat" is a feature length documentary that follows the full season of the 2008 Wisconsin Hodags. After two years in a row of making finals, losing and then winning once, the Hodags set out to bring the championship back to Madison for the third time in six years. This would be a trial of focus, dedication, and unity for a team beleaguered by a record snowfall winter, and a line up of bitter competitors waiting for their shot at the returning champion.
