Leading Scorer (non-QB, non-kicker)
Prediction: Fitzgerald Toussaint
Actual: Fitzgerald Toussaint
Breakout Offensive Player
Prediction: Thomas Rawls
Actual: Devin Funchess. Funchess didn't light the world on fire, but he showed flashes of what he can do if Michigan can get him the ball in the coming years. Rawls didn't show much elusiveness or much power.
Breakout Defensive Player
Prediction: Thomas Gordon
Actual: Quinton Washington. Washington went from a bit of an afterthought to a viable Big Ten nose tackle. While he didn't put up great numbers (32 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack), he took up blockers in the middle of the line and didn't get blown off the ball.
Most Disappointing Offensive Player
Prediction: Jerald Robinson
Actual: Fitzgerald Toussaint. Robinson was disappointing and then left the team, so he was clearly a disappointment. But the starting running back, who averaged 5.6 yards/carry in 2011, dropped all the way to 4.0 yards/carry this season.
Most Disappointing Defensive Player
Prediction: Jibreel Black
Actual: J.T. Floyd. Floyd didn't make a single interception this season and got himself suspended for the Outback Bowl.
Out of 23 predictions, I got 12.5 right. I'm like Nostradamus or something.
