Amid the rumor and innuendo swirling around the Ole Miss football program, there are rumors of a mass exodus of players. Players, which have included quarterback Shea Patterson.
Of course, most of this comes from the school below us, on social media, based on their invaluable sources. So far, much of the rumor mill from Starkville and the Maroon and White have been nothing more than an unreliable distraction. It’s the same thing with rumors about Shea.
Oh yeah, there have been reports from ‘reliable’ news outlets, #20 is looking for a new home. Not so fast, Rebel faithful can relax. Looks like these so-called reliable news outlets may be getting their info from the wrong sources; Shea is staying.
Shea Speaks Out….Loudly
I’ve been saying for awhile now, this kid is special. Shea leads, both on and off the field, and leaders take charge. He showed his courage in last season, and already is calling the shots on social media. Taking to Twitter, Shea reaffirmed what most of us already knew, he isn’t going anywhere.
This of course, is incredible news for Rebel football followers. #20 IS undoubtedly the front runner for play caller this upcoming season, and yes, we need him all in. In today’s college football world, there is an opportunity for players to transfer from teams who are under the cloud of NCAA allegations.
Shea, reaffirming his commitment to the team is a vital key in this teams cog. Keeping the core of this team together, is essential to success in the upcoming season and beyond, and it starts with #20.
Lets Not Forget Who Shea Patterson Is

Patterson was the #1 high school quarterback prospect in the nation when he was recruited by Coach Dan Werner. After a prolific high school career, All-American honors, and Elite 11 MVP, he finished up with MVP in the US Army All-American Bowl.
He was red-shirted to start the 2016 season, but the shirt was burned after Chad Kelly was injured. Patterson finished the 2016, as advertised, with incredibly impressive numbers for a freshman in the SEC. Per OleMissSports.com, in just three games, he completed 72 of 132 passes for 880 yards and 6 TDs with a passer efficiency rating of 121.0.
Rebel nation knows we need Shea, and he knows he wants to be a Rebel. He also knows he has a very good team around him, and they want to be a force to be reckoned with. Shea and his rowdy Rebels, will have an opportunity to run rough shod over a league which has written us out of the picture.
This proves for all of us, what a special player we have in Shea, and knowing he is leading our Rebels this coming fall is awesome.Of course, Rebel nation thanks you #20, and we are ALL IN!
