Jim Harbaugh

Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh delivered quite a shock to college football on Saturday when he announced that both quarterbacks Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy would start a game before he decided on the team’s starting quarterback this season.

What was already a bizarre situation got a little more bizarre on Monday when Harbaugh made some curious comparisons to Michigan’s preseason quarterback battle, calling it “biblical.”

“It’s a process. It is a process,” Harbaugh said in his Monday press conference, according to a video shared by Angelique on Twitter.. “I mean no person — it’s biblical. No person knows what the future holds. It’s a process and will be based on performance. But we’re not gonna withhold any good thing. Both have been tremendous quarterbacks. We think that both are capable of leading our team to a championship. So that’s good.”

“We’re gonna keep cultivating that,” Harbaugh said. “People have asked: ‘How’d you come to that decision? Was it based on some kind of NFL model?’ No. It’s really based biblical: Solomon. He was known for being a pretty, pretty wise person.”

Harbaugh did not elaborate about what exactly he meant by the Solomon comparison, nor did he offer any real clarification about the team’s quarterback situation.

It seems that he’s in midseason press conference form and the season hasn’t even started yet.
