Madison- The Badger football team opens the regular season on Saturday against UMass.  It's the official start of the Gary Andersen era at UW.  Despite the fact that the coaching staff has changed- the overall philosophy of Wisconsin football hasn't.  Andersen begged for Saturday to come early, because he wants his team to finally play against somebody else. 

"I am absolutely excited about the opportunity to take the field with this crew and watch them go to work and I know they're excited about it. And it's going to be fun. That's one of the big reasons why you coach is to see the young men go out and have fun playing the game of football, excited about that. Coaching a game of football is coaching the game. There's going to be those first game jitters, you worry about the players, the coaches and everybody settling in. But once the ball is in the air there, we should settle in and just be fine."
