The NCAA just passed a new rule that allows college football athletes to play in up to four games and still be able to redshirt. As noted by SI’s Stewart Mandel, if this rule would have been in place back in 2016, Michigan QB Shea Patterson would have an extra year of eligibility.
Had this rule been in place in 2016, Shea Patterson would have three years of eligibility left instead of two.

After then starting QB Chad Kelly went down with a season ending injury, Patterson entered for Ole Miss for the final three games.
Some are predicting Patterson to only be around Ann Arbor for one season.
