This may be a rough time for Ole Miss, between the struggles on the field and the scandal off of it, but it does have at least one bright spot — sophomore quarterback Shea Patterson.
Patterson is following up his strong freshman season with another solid campaign this year. He has thrown for 1,792 yards and 13 touchdowns through the Rebels’ first five games, which has included throwing for more than 300 yards four times.
On Friday on CBS Sports Network, analyst Rick Neuheisel had strong praise for Patterson.
“Having watched this kid play, I think he’s really, really talented,” Neuheisel said. “Now, obviously it’s not a banner year for Ole Miss, but the way Shea Patterson is distributing the ball around, even when the games get out of hand — which, unfortunately, it has in the past couple weeks — he still hangs around in the pocket and knows how to distribute the ball to all portions of the field.
“As the old saying goes at the next level, he has all the throws. And I just think, for Phil Longo, their offensive coordinator, this has got to be a joy to work with him.”
Patterson will try to help Ole Miss snap its three-game losing streak when the Rebels play their first home game in more than a month on Saturday. Ole Miss hosts Vanderbilt at 3:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
