ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Shea Patterson says Michigan's new offense is similar to what he did at Ole Miss.

Asked if he sees more opportunity for big plays against higher-profile teams this season, he hesitated only for a moment.

Then Patterson nodded.

Josh Gattis takes over Michigan's offense this season, arriving from Alabama with a spread offense and a "speed in space" mantra.

"Definitely feel more natural," Patterson said on Thursday.

Teammates say they see Patterson doing more 'Shea things' in the new offense. The senior quarterback said it was an easy and quick process to adapt to Gattis and the new system.
