Welcome to the show, Cade McNamara.

The sophomore quarterback's debut for Michigan football was a signal of just how dominant the Wolverines were Saturday night. McNamara, the backup for Joe Milton, took the field with about 2 minutes left and No. 17 Michigan leading No. 21 Minnesota, 49-24.

The Wolverines rolled the Golden Gophers behind a steady performance from starting quarterback Joe Milton, a strong performance by the Michigan backfield and a stifling performance by the Michigan front seven.

Wolverines fans on Twitter were rightfully pleased.

Not all's well.

But it ended well enough.
