With the college season just a bit over a month away, the Kentucky football fan might be looking for an area in which their Cats might have the slightest edge.
Here's a possibility: clarity at quarterback.
I know, I know. Mark Stoops hasn't officially named a starter. But most think his choice will be Patrick Towles, the junior who started all 12 games last season, the former Highlands star who surely learned from last year's experience.
Such a situation is not the norm in this year's Southeastern Conference. At least nine conference teams head into training camp with no real idea who their starting signal-caller will be once toe meets leather the first weekend in September.
Never miss a local story.
One of the reasons the wiseguys like Tennessee to take the SEC East is because Coach Butch Jones knows his quarterback is going to be nuclear physicist — or is it rocket scientist? — Josh Dobbs, the junior who gave the Vols a boost at the end of last season. Missouri returns junior Maty Mauk, who led the Tigers to an SEC East title a year ago.
Things aren't so clear-cut at the other Columbia, however. Expected starter Connor Mitch threw just six passes all of last season. And Steve Spurrier rarely goes with just one quarterback. Freshman Lorenzo Nunez might want to know where his helmet is located at all times.
Sophomore Brice Ramsey was the expected starter at East Division favorite Georgia. Then head coach Mark Richt said yes to graduate transfer Greyson Lambert from Virginia.
At Florida, you know new coach Jim McElwain is out beating the bushes in search of his franchise quarterback, but for now he has to hope sophomore Treon Harris can build on a spotty freshman year.
Someone in Nashville could write a sad song about Vanderbilt's quarterback situation. Second-year coach Derek Mason admits he played too many QBs last year. Then expected starter Patton Robinette gave up the sport because of concussions. Johnny McCrary is No. 1 heading into training camp, but keep an eye on true freshman Kyle Shurmur, son of Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Over on the Western slope, 2014 Heisman Trophy contender Dak Prescott returns at Mississippi State. There's a reason he's preseason first team All-SEC. Arkansas is solid with returning starter Brandon Allen, who knows how to manage Bret Bielema's power run game.
And that's about it.
Division favorite Alabama's Nick Saban isn't ready to pick a favorite in his quarterback battle. It could be Jacob Coker, the transfer from Florida State who failed to beat out Blake Sims last season. True freshman Blake Barnett is heralded and persuasive — he helped Madison Southern's Damien Harris to side with the Tide — but it's hard to see Saban turning the reins over to a rookie.
At LSU, Anthony Jennings held a slight edge over Brandon Harris until Jennings was arrested last month after an alleged break-in. Les Miles said he is confident Jennings will return and compete for the job. Truthfully, the job description might simply consist of turning around and handing the ball off to Leonard Fournette.
Mississippi has the same problem. Juco transfer Chad Kelly is expected to be the starter, if he can stay out of trouble. Kelly was dismissed at Clemson, then got himself into a bar fight over Christmas. Sophomore Kyle Allen and true freshman Kyler Murray, both highly coveted prospects, will try to make Texas A&M fans forget about another troubled soul, i.e. Johnny Manziel.
Jeremy Johnson has a world of potential and an offensive genius calling plays in Auburn's Gus Malzahn. But Johnson threw just 37 passes backing up Nick Marshall last season. The SEC media picked the Tigers to win the league, which puts even more pressure on the new quarterback.
At the game's most important position, the game's toughest league has a lot of questions to answer.
