After seven successful years at Wisconsin Brett Bielema left the Badgers for the head coaching job at Arkansas. Former Utah State coach Gary Anderson plans to keep things rolling in Madison. 

"You formulate a plan, you present it to them and then you back it up with time. As you go through the winter conditioning, as you go through spring ball, as you go through meetings it becomes knowledge based because they see themselves getting better" said Anderson.

Anderson inherits a typical Wisconsin offensive line loaded with size and talent. The running game will look for James White to break out after the departure of Montee Ball. 

"We definitely have the most speed we've probably ever had in the backfield at Wisconsin so I think that will give us a lot of versatility" said White. 

Defensively the Badgers return a strong front seven and will switch to a 3-4 defense. The defense should be able to keep Wisconsin in every game. 

"Every year is a new year. It's a new season. There's been a ton of success at Wisconsin and I think the kids in the program understand exactly where they're at, the direction that they're headed and what needs to happen for them to have an opportunity to have a quality season" said Anderson.
