Former Ole Miss LB C.J. Johnson throws shade at Shea Patterson after transfer

Shea Patterson announced his transfer to Michigan on Monday, and former Ole Miss linebacker C.J. Johnson had some shade for Patterson shortly after the news broke.

Johnson, who played for the Rebels from 2011-15, never mentioned Patterson by name in the tweets. But it’s easy to figure out the target of his criticism. In Johnson’s first message, he wrote that “saying thanks is too much respect for someone who has done nothing.” He went on to write that former Ole Miss quarterbacks Chad Kelly and Bo Wallace should receive words of thanks.

So yeah, that happened.

You can understand where Johnson is coming from. After all, Patterson has played in parts of the 2016 and 2017 seasons. But his career at Ole Miss will be one remembered for its lack of fulfillment. After entering Oxford as a highly touted recruit, he finishes with 3,139 yards passing with 23 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with the Rebels.

Still, Patterson is wise to do what’s best for him, especially after the NCAA hit Ole Miss hard with penalties. It will be interesting to follow his career in Ann Arbor.
