Michigan Football: Midseason Grades for Players and Coaches

Brady Hoke must re-evaluate Team 134 before it's too late.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke won't want to place this report card on his refrigerator. 

That's because through seven weeks of the season, Team 134 has failed to live up to expectations despite its 5-1 (1-1) record. 

Now unranked, the Wolverines should consider themselves lucky to have just one loss.

Saturday's 43-40 quadruple-overtime setback to Penn State was the first official notch in the loss column, but Michigan barely escaped its first road test of the year at UConn and slightly edged Akron at The Big House. 

Beating two supposedly lowly programs by a combined seven points is a failure in itself, especially for a team with aspirations of winning a Big Ten Championship—a goal that looks less likely each week. As of now, a 5-1 mark has the feel of 3-3. 

Needless to say, Michigan, as a team, has failing grades at the midpoint of the year. This slideshow will further examine major areas of concern and tag them with a corresponding measure.
