Stephen Johnson led Kentucky to seven wins and a bowl appearance in 2016. Despite that, Mark Stoops and Eddie Gran have not officially named him the quarterback yet for the Southern Miss game.

While it is expected that Johnson will start the season as the playcaller, how short of a leash will he have? Drew Barker has impressed in fall camp and Kentucky can’t afford to lose to Southern Miss for the second straight year.

Lachlan McLean and Bradley McKee join Clayton Abernathy to discuss.
