Wisconsin Football: 3 Significant Changes Gary Andersen Will Make to the Badgers
Douglas C. Pizac-USA TODAY Sports

Change is never easy, but sometimes it can be a good thing. In the case of the Wisconsin Badgers, it's a team that hasn't undergone much change over the past few decades in the coaching department.

Over the span of 23 years, the Badgers only had two head coaches—Barry Alvarez and Bret Bielema. Under their collective reign, Wisconsin won three Rose Bowls and appeared in six, including a current three-year streak that new head coach Gary Andersen will look to keep alive.

Even when Bielema took over in 2006, there wasn't much of a turnover because he was Alvarez's hand-picked successor, and the mantra of pounding the football and running a pro-style offense remained while some of the Alvarez staff stayed on board.

Some things may stay the same under Andersen, who built the Utah State football program from the ground up in four years, but there will be some significant changes to the Wisconsin football way.
