Harbaugh names starting quarterback
It took until game time for it to be official, but finally we have an answer.
Jake Rudock is Michigan’s starting quarterback. For now.
The Iowa transfer had been taking first-team reps throughout fall camp after joining the team over the summer. He and Shane Morris had been in competition for the starting job throughout camp, though Jim Harbaugh told both who would be the starter well before kickoff Thursday night.
Rudock threw for 4,819 yards, 34 touchdowns in his two seasons under center in Iowa City. He transferred to Michigan after Kirk Ferentz named C.J. Beathard the Hawkeyes’ starter.
Rudock will look to improve the nation’s 112th ranked offense.
