Over the past 10 seasons, Michigan’s JJ McCarthy has the highest winning percentage among quarterbacks who have made at least 20 starts.
The Michigan Wolverines football team represents the University of Michigan in college football.
Since Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy’s commitment to Michigan in 2019, Wolverine fans have eagerly anticipated the day when the five-star prospect would take over as QB1 in Ann Arbor.
It took no time at all.
During his sophomore year in week two of the 2022 season, McCarthy finally got his first start and never turned back. McCarthy has had an impressive overall record of 22-1 as a starter, boasting a winning percentage of .957 in that position. He has been exceptional, boasting the highest winning percentage of any quarterback in the past 10 seasons with at least 20 starts, placing him at the top of an impressive list.
J.J. would be the appropriate way to rewrite the text. In the last decade, McCarthy boasts the highest win percentage among all quarterbacks with at least 20 starts.
What is his comparison to the other QBs on this list?
With McCarthy’s record of winning, it’s only right that he will lead as the starting quarterback when Michigan is expected to become the first program in College Football history to reach 1,000 wins this weekend.
As mentioned before, McCarthy is on track to make Michigan Football history as he climbs up the all-time rankings.
McCarthy is currently in his second year as the University of Michigan’s starting quarterback, and he has already established himself as one of the greatest to ever play the position in Ann Arbor. He is currently number 1. 405 completions in career, ranking at No. 9. As of now, he holds the ninth position in career passing yards with 5,429 and is also tied for No. 9. He has scored 45 career passing touchdowns, ranking him at 6th in the league. McCarthy is currently joint at the number. With 6 passing touchdowns in a single season (22, 2022), there is still a chance to surpass the record of 25 held by Elvis Grbac and Chad Henne. With at least three games left in the 2023 season, he has already thrown 18 touchdown passes.
No matter what happens in the 2023 season, it’s clear that head coach Jim Harbaugh was right when he recently ranked JJ McCarthy among the all-time great Michigan quarterbacks.
Harbaugh asked those who watch a lot of football and are experts in evaluating quarterback play to just give him two seconds. Take a moment to appreciate JJ McCarthy’s skill as a passer, a runner, and a leader. It’s truly remarkable. It’s a rare occurrence, not something that happens often. In my opinion, he is without a doubt the greatest college quarterback Michigan has ever had.
