Michigan had a bit of a unique quarterback situation during the 2021 season, and many are expecting an offseason battle for the starter’s spot entering 2022. However, 2021 starter Cade McNamara sees things a bit differently.

Last season, McNamara was the starter and led the Wolverines with 2,576 yards and 15 touchdowns while completing 64.2% of his passes. He also had a rushing touchdown to his credit.

However, 5-star freshman J.J. McCarthy was also worked into action consistently throughout the year. He appeared in 11 games and had 7 total touchdowns while completing 57.6% of his passes.

On Thursday, McNamara was asked about that offseason competition entering 2022. He responded by pointing out he is a B1G title-winning starter, and that’s how he views the battle with McCarthy entering spring practices.

McNamara is certainly not wrong with that assessment. It will be interesting to see if he is able to hold onto that starter’s spot entering 2022.
