“Share your source Adam!!!!!” McNamara tweeted in response.
Biggers replied, “I can’t do that, Mr. McNamara. But I’ve always written fair about your son. Always.” Biggers also asked Gary McNamara to call him.
Cade McNamara was Michigan’s starting quarterback last season and led the Wolverines to a win over rival Ohio State, Big Ten championship, and spot in the College Football Playoff. But he was beaten out by J.J. McCarthy for the team’s starting job this season.
McNamara is dealing with a leg injury suffered against UConn.
Though Gary McNamara seems upset about the report, there are plenty of reasons to speculate that Cade might want to transfer. He’s already had success in the Big Ten. He’s a good quarterback who was beaten out by someone who was playing better. He also could have a few seasons of eligibility left too, which would give him plenty of time to develop at another program.
McNamara passed for 15 touchdowns and 6 interceptions last season.
