Coaching the coaches

Wisconsin Football Coach Gary Andersen files a horse's teeth, reaches into a cow's stomach and coaches a dog on an underwater treadmill in a new installment of the Big Ten Network television program "Forward Motion." At the UW Veterinary Care clinic, Andersen worked his way through a variety of jobs for the nationally broadcast show, produced by UW-Madison for the BTN. Getting equal time is Badger Women's Basketball Coach Bobbie Kelsey, who puts a full-court press on jobs at the Babcock Dairy Plant. The show will air tonight around 8:30 p.m, -- or immediately following the Badger women's volleyball game.
