Ah, the joys of social media.
Following Saturday’s win over Murray State, Kentucky Wildcats running back Benny Snell declared that he could run against anyone, regardless if it was a college or NFL team, adding “This offense don’t fear nobody.”
On Monday, Mississippi St. Bulldogs running back Kylin Hill mocked Snell with a tweet that had 41 consecutive crying laughing emojis.
You can still see the image here, but as of Monday evening, this is the only thing you’ll see if you look for said tweet:
Snell, who hadn’t tweeted since Saturday’s win over Murray State (and usually tweets just a few times per week), sent out the following message that was almost certainly a response to Hill:
You a clown over the internet! I show up in real life.— Mr SNELL YA LATER (@benny_snell) September 17, 2018
Then again, it could have been met for any person that’s ever talked trash about Kentucky and Snell anywhere other than a football field that Snell is on, which will be Kroger Field this Saturday against the Bulldogs.
The only unfortunate thing about this Twitter beef is both players play running back, so there’s almost no way we could see them actually face off on the field, though we’ll see them competing for yards as their respective teams’ top backs.
I doubt Hill would want anything to do with Snell anyhow. Hill can write the checks knowing it’s going to be guys like Jeffrey Simmons and Montez Sweat who have to cash them, which they did last year in Starkville, holding Snell to just 32 total yards on eight touches.
Saturday cannot get here fast enough.
