Changes were sure to come to the University of Wisconsin’s quarterback room when coach Paul Chryst took control of the leadership of that position.

His current number of quarterbacks told reporters on Friday that Chryst speaks almost the same language as former quarterbacks coach Jon Budmayr, but their approaches are different.
