It was bound to happen, right?
The Michigan Wolverines' offense finally came to life during Saturday's 63-13 thrashing of the visiting UMass Minutemen, flexing its muscle early and often, getting everyone involved and helping the team forget two previous lukewarm showings in Weeks 1 and 2.
Wolverines coach Brady Hoke told The Wolverine.com, "It's great to win, but if we want to win the Big Ten championship, we've got to improve in a lot of areas. They start up front on both lines of scrimmage."
Hoke's postgame thoughts lend a hint as to whom the winners and losers were during Week 3. But let's summarize a couple talking points before the grand breakdown.
Winner: Denard Robinson, of course. He showcased his highly criticized arm and actually appeared to be more of a quarterback and less of a guy who's under center and just runs, runs, runs.
Loser(s): The guys on the offensive and defensive lines. Hoke was far from thrilled by the way those two groups played, despite a huge victory.
As promised, let's get into the analysis and break down the successful players and the ones who weren't...well, the ones who weren't so successful.
