The upcoming controversy of the Michigan football team defender should be the story of its offseason. And in his first public comments since last season’s unceremonious ending, Cade McNamara put his foot down when asked about the obvious competition.

“I am a starting defender in the Big Ten Championship,” said McNamara, who will be a senior in the fall. “And that’s how I see it.”

McNamara won last year’s defenders’ competition – if you can even describe it that way – without much fuss. And he thrived as an unmistakable defender and experienced game manager, bringing Wolverine to the best season of decades, while receiving third-team awards from the All-Big Ten.
