The Winnebago's in the shop

According to this, Wisconsin stud running back/bowling ball P.J. Hill is at this point a no-go against Michigan on Saturday.

Madison - Wisconsin tailback P.J. Hill, who sat out the loss at Ohio State because of a bruised left leg, is not expected to play Saturday when UW takes on No. 13 Michigan.

"P.J. didn't go again today," UW coach Bret Bielema said after practice Thursday. "I doubt he is going to be likely to go on Saturday -- unless he gets better in a hurry."

With Hill out, either freshman Zach Brown or sophomore Lance Smith should get the start.

Brown rushed 20 times for 63 yards in the loss to Ohio State and has 181 yards and a touchdown in 55 carries, a 3.3-yard average.

Smith served the fourth game of his five-game university suspension last week. In six games, Smith has 354 yards and three touchdowns in 55 carries, an average of 6.4 yards per carry.

Sad news for Badger fans...good news for Michigan. No P.J. Hill, no Luke Swan = an already anemic offense gets worse. Couple that with an already shaky defense riddled with injures, and,, win the game and stuff, okay?
