Barker’s injury will not be reassessed during the bye week

Kentucky did not have much of a passing game with Stephen Johnson under center Saturday night. Johnson made several errant throws and tossed one inexcusable interception while only managing to throw for 49 yards in the game. The poor showing did not ruin the Cats’ night, but the offense can’t rely on the running game as much as it did and expect to win any games going forward.

After the game, Mark Stoops was asked if Drew Barker’s injury will be reassessed during the bye week, to which Stoops simply said, “Not right now.”

So, it is still the Stephen Johnson Show in Lexington, at least for the foreseeable future.

    On the TV broadcast they mentioned that UK had been working to change Johnson’s throwing motion-maybe if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? This wasn’t the same kid that actually threw it well his first couple of games.

      Thats exactly what I was thinking. He wasnt a great thrower before but he was efficient and could make the throws.

      What gives?

    Why can’t they rely on that many running plays? Johnson is a much better passer rolling out. Why did we pass so much from the pocket?!? Good win today. I hope it gives them confidence and brings more fans to the games. This team needs the fans to support them, not crappy people like 3 fan. You’re part of the problem so please stay away and play your video games in your mom’s basement.

    Run the option! Run the Georgia Tech offense! We have a non-throwing QB (or at best a short route throwing QB). Use his legs and the power runners we have and make it work.
