Former Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson is now a Michigan Wolverine, but his status for the upcoming 2018 season is still up in the air.

He filed a waiver with the NCAA claiming that he should be able to play right away due to the sanctions placed on the Ole Miss program.

However, according to CBS Sports reporter Dennis Dodd, the Rebels are objecting to Patterson’s portrayal of the program:

Ole Miss is objecting to Shea Patterson’s assessment of the conditions within the program that the quarterback claims caused him to transfer from the school amid an NCAA scandal, his attorney tells CBS Sports.

Patterson’s attorney, Thomas Mars (who you may remember from Houston Nutt’s lawsuit against Ole Miss), said Ole Miss’s response was ridiculous:

“Whoever wrote that response for Ole Miss either wasn’t paying attention last year or had a case of selective amnesia,” Mars said.

The NCAA is still considering the waiver, which will obviously have major implications for Michigan’s 2018 season. Wolverine fans (and coaches) will hold their breath and cross their fingers that the star quarterback will be able to play immediately this fall.
