Badgers Blasting Music at Football Practice


Madison (WQOW) -- Wisconsin won't be the kind of program that makes major changes just because it has a new football coach, but Gary Andersen has changed some things.

Inside the McClain Center, the speakers are blasting out non-stop music at Wisconsin spring football practice.  Andersen has put together a personal playlist, anything from pop, to country, to rock, to what have you.  Andersen says playing loud music brings more of a gameday feel to practice.  Players say, the change is a big hit.

"I like it," says senior running back James White, "it kind of gets your mind off things a little bit. it gets you through that one rep when your tired and it makes it a lot easier."

"I think guys like it," says senior linebacker Chris Borland, "maybe not every song but it provides energy."

"I think its fun," Andersen says, "it provides a little bit of lightness into practice. music is an emotional thing and if it if it gets you going, that's great if it puts you down then you better find a way to fight through a song you don't like."

Wisconsin's spring game is set for Saturday, April 20.
