Another Kentucky football game, another opposing player talking trash. Running back Benny Snell is yet again being called out leading into a big match-up.
Following the Kentucky Wildcats victory over Murray State on Saturday, Snell talked about the upcoming match-up against the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
“I’m gonna run on any team,” Snell said. “You could be an NFL team. It don’t matter. This offense don’t fear nobody.”
The Bulldogs’ leading rusher, Kylin Hill, took it upon himself to mock Snell with 41 consecutive crying laughing emojis, which is more than the number of yards he rushed for against Louisiana last week.
In Snell’s defense, he has averaged more than 5 yards per carry in each game this season. His season high was against the Florida Gators when he ran for 175 yards on just 27 carries. He has been a monster and is starting to garner Heisman buzz.
Hill does have impressive numbers for the season, but he has only rushed for over 50 yards in one game. He had a monster effort against Kansas State, but has been fairly pedestrian otherwise.
Members of both the Central Michigan Chippewas and the Florida Gators publicly talked trash leading up to their match-ups with the Wildcats. On both occasions, Kentucky let their play do the talking and walked off the field in victory.
Snell is the one that initiated the talking this week. But he has more than backed up anything he has ever said.
For Hill to publicly laugh at Snell’s confident statement is a bit risky since he will never actually share the field with his running back counterpart. Will his mouth end up getting his defense in trouble?
Benny Snell would probably say that’s the case.
