New coach has Wisconsin Badgers in a groove

Posted:
MADISON (AP) -

Gary Andersen is in the middle of his first spring practice as Wisconsin's football coach and the Badgers say they've noticed some subtle changes.

Linebacker Chris Borland says Andersen has created a fun atmosphere and the team is responding well to it.

Andersen took over in December for Bret Bielema, who resigned in December to take the job at Arkansas. He has been hands-on so far, running around with his players during drills -- and dancing along with them during some lighter moments.  Every practice is complete with large speakers blaring a mesh of country, pop, hip hop and dance music. Andersen believes this challenges his players to communicate effectively.
