The Michigan Wolverines have been at their best this entire season, with an unblemished record of 10-0. Therefore, fans expected an easy victory against the Maryland Terrapins on Sunday night. But that was hard to come by. Could it be that QB JJ McCarthy’s nagging injury since their game against Indiana is proving to be a handicap for the Wolverines?

The battle ended in a closer than anticipated 31-24 scoreline that showed the resilience of a Maryland team that kept fighting till the end. The Wolverines felt the full brunt of intense pressure as they were already more than two players off the field. To make matters worse, a critical blunder from JJ McCarthy further complicated their shot at victory. How critical was this mistake, and how does this affect McCarthy’s shot at lifting the Heisman Trophy?

Though the Wolverines did taste victory, the team was not at its best. Their sloppiness was quite visible. McCarthy’s multiple mistakes, like the one before his second-quarter interception, gave Maryland an upper hand. Could it be related to the visible limp in his leg that has been seen in his games against Indiana and Penn State? Only time will tell. However, fans weren’t so sympathetic.

The team’s fans took to X to roast the 20-year-old quarterback. A fan hilariously wrote, “JJ McCarthy lost himself millions of dollars with that single throw.”

Another user commented, “JJ McCarthy has been…rough today”

This fan hilariously stated, “It’s hard to look good when you don’t know the plays the other team is calling 🤔

This user wasn’t happy with the throw and said, “JTT and Sawyer need to make JJ McCarthy’s life a living hell next week. Their OT’s can’t pass protect.”

Last, this user didn’t hold back and relentlessly said, “Michigan has done a great job hiding how incredibly average JJ McCarthy is. They’ve kept it secret for months.”

But even with all the roasting, McCarthy has been one of the best players in the NCAA this season, as his impressive Heisman Trophy odds show. Does he have any tricks up his sleeves?

What do McCarthy’s Heisman Trophy odds look like after the match?

Despite the questionable performances sometimes, there’s no doubt about the fact that JJ McCarthy is one of the best QBs in the nation today. He’s been one of the frontrunners right behind Caleb Williams and Michael Penix Jr., but after today’s match, it looks like his odds will suffer.

He didn’t perform well against Maryland today, with only 60 yards in passing completion and zero touchdowns to his name. These numbers won’t do his Heisman odds any good from once +6000 to now at +25000. His team could be the champions this year with their exceptional record, but the dreams of McCarthy winning the Heisman trophy will have to be kissed goodbye.

The sport has been on my radar because of the sort of aggressiveness with which the game is played, perhaps the only one in the world that allows such a brutal display of power.
