The Gary Andersen regime has officially begun at Wisconsin. The Badgers took the field for the first time under Andersen on March 9 for the start of spring practice.
There already seems to be a great connection between Andersen and his players thanks to the coach's diligent effort to get to know each and every Badger. Andersen has even been seen snapping the ball to the quarterback and getting up close and personal during drills to make sure his kids are getting it right.
With the changes Wisconsin are expected to encounter, it's refreshing to already see Andersen doing whatever it takes to get his entire roster on the same page. The Badgers' first game is in five-and-a-half months, and while that may seem like plenty of time to adjust to the ways of Andersen, they will need to utilize that time effectively to be ready to go for the 2013 season.
Nothing really seems to faze coach Andersen, but he still has some concerns as spring practice in Madison gets underway.
