MADISON, Wis. (WXOW)
Footballs are flying and blocking sleds are being hit in Madison as well.
The Badgers opened their summer training camp at Camp Randall Stadium.
Practice was not too long of a first day though. Roughly 2.5 hours Monday morning.
Most of the team got a jump start in the spring implementing Paul Chryst's new offensive schemes.
However, it's now full speed ahead with Alabama looming in 26 days.
Chryst demands a blue-collar approach to practice and that's what he got in day one.
"It was fun getting out here. I told the kids at the end of practice I appreciated their energy, their enthusiasm to it, and it was a good start. Obviously, got a ways to go, but we'll get there if we keep stacking days like this," Chryst said.
The first practice featured Tanner McEvoy playing exclusively at wide receiver, although he is expected to play a lot of safety too, perhaps even start there.
