Badger Bits: Fullback Ewing playing with mean streak

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Junior fullback Bradie Ewing is tired of being a nice guy. I'd venture to say it's working out well for him, as he is seeing lots of playing time lately. And here's what Ewing had to say about the cut block on Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn that drew the ire of Hawkeye fans: "We watched it on film and his toe got caught in the turf. It was a totally legal cut, my head was across (the front of Clayborn's body)."

True freshman Sean Robinson is the probable starter at quarterback for Purdue on Saturday, as Rob Henry continues to deal with a laceration on his throwing hand.

Jeff Potrykus predicts that Nick Toon, Lance Kendricks, Peter Konz, and Jordan Kohout will play on Saturday, but thinks James White is still a week away.

The Tuesday Top Five: Best possible outcomes for the 2010 Wisconsin Football season

1. A rash of losing by the top teams in the BCS standings occurs over the next few weeks, and somehow the 11-1 Badgers find themselves in the BCS National Championship Game against 12-1 Alabama. The Badgers then finally end the SEC's run of national championships with a 28-24 victory.

2. Wisconsin wins out and wins the Big Ten outright, thanks to Penn State over Michigan State, Iowa over Ohio State, and Northwestern over Iowa. The Badgers go to the Rose Bowl and take down Oregon, following Ohio State's blueprint from last year's Rose Bowl.

3. Michigan State loses to Penn State, and the Badgers win out to secure a co-Big Ten Championship with Iowa. The Badgers get the Rose Bowl nod and take care of TCU 34-20, proving that non-BCS conference teams are not ready to handle 'The Granddaddy of Them All.'

4. The top 4 teams in the Big Ten all take care of business against lesser opponents, and Iowa beats Ohio State. Michigan State goes to the Rose, while Wisconsin gets a nod to the Orange Bowl against ACC champion Virginia Tech. Bucky wins a close one in Miami.

5. Wisconsin loses all four remaining games and ends up in the Little Caesars Bowl in one of the biggest late season collapses in college football history. Hey, at least the travel for the bowl game is much easier.
