Jim Harbaugh has decided to start Big Ten championship-winning quarterback Cade McNamara when No. 8 Michigan opens its season Saturday at home against Colorado State.
When the Wolverines host Hawaii the following week, Harbaugh has chosen to give J.J. McCarthy their first snap.
Harbaugh said no one can be sure who the team’s starting quarterback will be after the first two games.
“No person knows what the future holds,” he said Monday. “The process will be based on performance.”
