SIAP: The Jim Harbaugh starting QB decision controversy is not like Kirk

Not sure if you heard but just coming out of August camp Harbaugh announced to the media and therefore the fans that JJ McCarthy would start game #2. I will say one thing and that is Harbaugh is certainly unique. I mean the team voted McNamara as a captain and Cade is the first Mich qb to beat OSU in forever as well as win the Big 10 title and go to the playoffs.

You would think that would make Cade the starter long term with McCarthy coming in and playing several full series maybe.

I am all for giving backups some playing time so they are more ready when they become starters.

Cade didn't seem very happy about the whole thing.
