Michigan's JJ McCarthy Opens Up About QB Battle

It's going to be one of the hottest stories heading into the 2022 season as far as Michigan football fans are concerned: Cade or JJ?.

Given all that Michigan accomplished in 2021 with McNamara behind center, you wouldn't expect much of a quarterback debate under normal circumstances - but these certainly aren't normal circumstances.
