Letters: Of Badgers and Hodags

The Spring 2010 On Wisconsin “Team Player” by Sam Oleson x’11 caught my interest. I note that Ben Feldman is from Minnesota and [that] “Hodags” is the name for Wisconsin’s Ultimate Frisbee club.

The Rhinelander, Wisconsin, high school athletic teams have been known as the Hodags since before I can remember. Perhaps the most well known Badger who was also a Hodag was John Kotz ’43. John was a Big Ten basketball scoring champion and was voted the most valuable player in the only NCAA Championship tournament won by Wisconsin. Go, Hodags!
