Michigan Football: Winners and Losers from 1st Month of Wolverines' Season

The Michigan Wolverines haven't been consistent through the first month of the 2012 season.

The word "disappointing" best describes the Michigan Wolverines' first month of the 2012 college football season.

Calling it "disappointing" may be putting it mildly.

A 2-2 start wasn't what most expected out of Michigan, which was ranked No. 8 in preseason polls but has now dropped out of the AP Top 25.

After winning the BCS Sugar Bowl and posting 11 wins under first-year coach Brady Hoke, Michigan's fanbase expected far more this fall than what's been delivered.

The lack of consistency after Week 1's 41-14 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide has been frustrating. The defensive mistakes that allowed the Air Force Falcons to hang around in Week 2 were enough to cause fits.

Michigan's 63-13 win over UMass was a great showing offensively and gave a glimpse at what could have been done against Notre Dame.

But it wasn't done.

Michigan's offense struggled mightily during the 13-6 loss to the Irish. If not for its defensive effort, Michigan would have most likely lost by two or more touchdowns.

The highs.

The lows.

It's time to break down the 2012 Michigan Wolverines, commonly referred to as "Team 133."
