Time can change everything, and in the last six months the quarterback situation at Michigan has improved significantly.

Shea Patterson joined the team in early January to much fanfare, the decorated former quarterback at the University of Mississippi. With him comes pizzaz and excitement.

But perhaps most importantly, the junior is armed with more experience than any other quarterback on the Michigan roster. Not only has he played in more games, but he's played in big games. And not only has he played in those games, but he's shown the potential to put up big numbers, too.

After a rocky 2017 that saw the Wolverines struggle at quarterback (among other positions), his addition at the very least would make for additional competition in fall. Having someone of his like around surely wouldn't hurt.

And then the NCAA ruled on his eligibility in early April,A approving a waiver request and ruling him eligible to play right away. He went from not knowing his fate in spring to being the front-runner for the starting job come Sept. 1 at Notre Dame.
