Poll: Who Should Be JJ McCarthy’s Backup With Cade McNamara Injured?

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, an NCAA-wide fan poll. Throughout the year we ask questions to the most connected Michigan Wolverines fans and fans across the country. Sign here to participate.

A quarter into the season, the Michigan Wolverines enter the Big Ten with an impeccable record and expectations of repeating last year’s historic championship campaign. While the Wolverines will face fewer challenges than usual in their Big Ten lineup, each opponent presents their own challenges and opportunities.

Michigan opens its quest for back-to-back championships with a sneaky good team from the Maryland Terrapins at Big House this Saturday. Vegas has the Wolverines as a 17-point favorite in their opening of the Big Ten.

Do you think Maize and Blue will cover it?

Throughout the offseason, Michigan’s wide receivers generated a lot of hype and high expectations. In the first three games, the group appears to be as advertised, with Roman Wilson, Ronnie Bell and Cornelius Johnson all posting good numbers and scoring touchdowns.

Which wideout has impressed you the most so far?

In the 59-0 loss to UConn last Saturday, team captain Cade McNamara left the competition with a leg injury, which will keep him out for the next few weeks. With JJ McCarthy defeating him for the starting role, Michigan needs a solid backup to replace the injured McNamara.

Realistic options include Davis Warren, Alan Bowman and Alex Orji. Of those three, who would you like to see as a reserve going forward?
