Wisconsin had a short week to recover. The Stanford Invite had taken a lot of energy out of the trusty legs and there was very little time to even so much as comprehend the mid season evaluations which were running rampant amongst the Hodag core. With the new agility ladder, Wisconsin is getting more athletic and generally more intelligent as a team. This is not good news for anyone else. The 2009 season was supposed to be rebuilding time, as the graduation of 9 studs and the departure of 5 other starters puts new clothes on the old face - Hodag Intensity.
However, most Hodags skipped Wednesday practice as Spring Break had officially started. The ride down to Georgia was quick enough as the anticipation was overpowering. The weather was not as excited as misty rain combined with chilly winds made for crappy conditions. Nonetheless, Wisconsin was ready to own on teams. But the domination would have to wait until the pulls landed in-bounds as Jake and Animal took turns missing the field and then arguing/screaming at each other was they walked down the field. The first game was against Iowa State and fresh legs were a must for Madison. Dave Wiseman was playing strong D as Armstrong bombed a 30 yard flick huck for a score as Wisconsin played efficient and well across the board 13-6. Next up was Rhone Island and the Hodags feasted 13-3, riding Jerry's wide open and well timed under cuts not to mention Manny's filthy good looks. Wisconsin played Kennesaw State next and continued to showcase their dominance winning something 13-3. The rookie Hodags are beginning to get comfortable in the sets and are finally breaking through to make plays. The best moments for the Offense is that they went unnoticed, scoring easily with cutter to cutter movement. Wisconsin continues to adapt to an ever-changing roster as Hollywood refused to get his new cleats dirty, smarking about "Wet ground and groin tears don't mix pacho." Gaynor breathed a sign of relief, knowing the Hodags probably saved something like 6 turnovers from Benji's IO flick. The last game of the day was against Delaware, who had one tall stud who was making plays everywhere. Darth "I need a nut tap" Klane was bombing IO flicks for headshots as Big Patsy skied big in the drizzly conditions 3-4. Wisconsin needed to make some mid-game adjustments to shut down Mr. InDelware who was hucking, skying, and toasting for scores, taking the lead 5-7. Captain J-Fo was growing anxious and Dan Park appeared clueless for how best to quell The Sideshow's momentum, as they held out of half 6-9. It was growing colder, raining and a clamy 45 degrees. Wisconsin called a timeout and roared something fericious, determined to finish on top. The Offense took control of the field, ripping off 29 yard cutter to cutter unders for pancake headspikes. Animal set a box-3-and-1 on Delamatrix which completely shut him down something brutal. The Hodags took control of the momentum and OATBAG'd for the win! Boo ya in the eyeball! Overall, Madison was making big strides with most of the team playing well! The Offense's philosophy of scoring the disc every time was finally working out regularly as Veteran's Gaynor and Murray showed the ropes to Chrispy and Davidman. Jake pulled the disc out of bounds apparently like 18 times, but played shut down defense for it. Wisconsin plays the winner of Truman State/FSU and was on the inside track for a finals appearance as Georgia and Minnesota had both lost during the day. Wisconsin was pumped to crush on team's and decided to give Darth Lazer another nut tap just for a good Spring Break joke. Sunday morning - global warming - tournament canceled.
