Michigan Football: Position-by-Position Grades for September
David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports
Senior RB Fitz Toussaint had a season-high 120 rushing yards vs. UConn in Week 4.

A new show unveils itself each Saturday when Michigan takes the field—up and down, back and forth, Team 134 has yet to find consistency this fall.

Ranked No. 18 by the Associated Press, the Wolverines (4-0) have this weekend to regroup and refresh after a humbling, 24-21 victory in Week 4 over UConn. Turnovers, mistakes and communication errors contributed to a second straight close call for coach Brady Hoke, whose team hosts Minnesota on Oct. 5 during its Big Ten opener at The Big House. 

Michigan set a benchmark when it clipped the Irish 41-30 in Week 2, proving that when all the parts move together, Team 134 is capable of hanging with high-profile opponents. Nonetheless, Hoke's team has played well enough to earn a C- for September, although its ceiling is much higher. 

This slideshow will also hand out individual marks for key starters and other key contributors. From Devin Gardner to Brendan Gibbons, it's report card time for the Maize and Blue.
