  Cade McNamara doesn't decide who should start at quarterback for Michigan; head coach Jim Harbaugh does. But McNamara has made the decision difficult or obvious, depending on how you look at it. McNamara, the backup quarterback to Joe Milton, took over late in the second quarter, resuscitated Michigan's offense after it trailed 17-0, and led the team to a 48-42, triple-overtime victory over Rutgers at SHI Stadium Saturday night. Michigan is now 2-3 and ended a three-game losing streak. Milton has started all five games this season. McNamara, who also gave Michigan a spark in the loss to Wisconsin and led the Wolverines to their only touchdown in that game, was asked if he feels he should now lead this team as starter.

"Personally, I feel like I've done enough for me to be put in that position," McNamara said. "That's coach Harbaugh's decision. Whatever's best for the team, that's coach Harbaugh's decision, but I feel like I'm confident enough in myself that if my number is called again, that I perform the same way." McNamara was 27-of-36 for 260 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for a 2-yard touchdown in the second overtime. He threw two touchdowns to Cornelius Johnson, one to tight end Nick Eubanks and another to Mike Sainristil. For the season, McNamara is 31-of-46 for 334 yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions. "Cade was outstanding," Harbaugh said. "Really gritty performance in all ways. His play was inspiring. Can't say enough great things. So proud of him." - Detroit News
