  08/31/21 - QB Cade McNamararSr/2025, Iowa

  No surprise here, but Cade McNamara is Michigan's starting quarterback heading into the season opener. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, who had said McNamara was the No. 1 quarterback coming out of spring practice, said Monday that McNamara has made "constant improvement" in a number of areas. Michigan opens against Western Michigan on Saturday at Michigan Stadium. McNamara, 6-foot-1, 212 pounds, started the last of Michigan's six games last season after taking over for starter Joe Milton while trailing by 17 at Rutgers and leading the Wolverines to a triple-overtime victory.

Milton since has transferred to Tennessee, where he was named the starter on Monday. McNamara's primary competition has come from freshman five-star recruit J.J. McCarthy. Dan Villari and Texas Tech transfer Alan Bowman also are part of the quarterback room. "The biggest one, consistency of doing his job," Harbaugh said Monday at a news conference, explaining how McNamara has taken his game to another level. "Also, call it a talent of making everyone else around you better - maybe that is the most important job of a quarterback." McCarthy is the backup, but Harbaugh would not say how much or if he will play in the opener. "All options will be open about playing J.J. or anybody else on our roster," Harbaugh said. - Detroit News
