Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

College basketball’s new season is heating up, and some preseason expectations have been blown away as thoroughly as a Big South team visiting Rupp Arena. Indeed, preseason No. 1 Kentucky (which lost after just three games, albeit to a great Michigan State team) doesn’t even make a ripple among the biggest shockers of the young season.

Read on for more on the Wolverines' struggles and the rest of the teams and players that have done the most to defy predictions, for either better or worse.
