ESPN Lists Stephen Johnson As Grambling St. QB in SEC?

@UKAthletics

After having a break out game for the Cats, Stephen Johnson definitely has the big blue nation’s attention. Unfortunately for him, ESPN doesn’t even know he plays for Kentucky.

In another “most Kentucky football thing ever“, Stephen Johnson is listed as playing for Grambling St., IN THE SEC RANKINGS.

Pretty odd to have a quarterback from Grambling St. show up in an SEC ranking, huh? Listen, obviously typos happen in the media world, but you’re suppose to be the worldwide leader in sports. Right, ESPN?

I have a hard time thinking they’d list Jalen Hurts from Bowling Green, or Luke Del Rio from Jacksonville St. It’s just another example of Kentucky football being overlooked and slightly disrespected.

UPDATE:

Following some backlash, the rankings and player profile for Johnson have been updated to show UK.

On a positive note, Johnson has the highest quarterback rating in the SEC with 10 or more passing attempts. He’s also passed Drew Barker in the rankings, throwing for 21 yards more and no interceptions.

We’ll have to wait and see who gets the start against South Carolina. Even with a healthy Drew Barker, it’s hard not to play Stephen Johnson going forward.

    Because we are not relevant to anyone who watches football. Just the way it is.

    Johnson and Snell are the future of UK football which proves the coaching staff has been playing the wrong players and giving the ball to the wrong players, Johnson adds a new dimension and makes UK a different team. Snell is the power runner UK has been lacking for years who can run over and drag people.

      Well I would imagine that will now change, snell is a freshman who got some touches each game, so they haven’t exactly been not playing them for years. But with boom Williams and JoJo your hardly gonna take snell and make him ur #1 back first game of the year . However, that game made me seriously question what they’ve missed in Johnson, maybe it was a fluke who knows, but he sure looked 100x better than Barker

      Stoops was scared to not start Barker. Likely due to the racist fanbase.

    Guys, you beat New Mexico State. What did you say when UofL beat Charlotte? “Calm down and wait till they beat somebody.” Seriously, take your own advice.

    The best thing about Louisville’s success is it shows that if the ghetto commuter school can do it, so can we.
