Around The Horn panelist hops on the Benny Snell Heisman hype train


Benny Snell may want to keep working on that pose seen in the photo above, because the #Benny4Heisman hype train isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

This afternoon, ESPN panelist Clinton Yates pulled off the victory on Around The Horn, and like usual, he was given 30 seconds to speak his mind on any topic of his choice.

No, he didn’t talk about Serena Williams, how horrible Buffalo’s Josh Allen is, or how the Boston Red Sox are dominating Major League Baseball.

He used his time to push Snell’s Heisman campaign, talking about Kentucky’s victory over Florida, the star running back’s 300 yards and two touchdowns through two games, and the referee incident from last year’s Music City Bowl.

“Benny Snell for Heisman. Think about it,” he said.

Take a look:

This comes just one day after Pro Football Focus, one of the most dominant outlets in the advanced analytics/statistics industry, put Snell on their official Heisman watch:

It’s happening, folks. Hop on while you still can.

    Thought that was Matt Jones talking when I first heard the voice. Normal Matt voice – not swaggy, podcast Matt voice.

      Same here!

    Oh how sweet it’d be for him to win it!

    I want for him as much as anyone. He’s gonna have to put up monster numbers against MSU, A&M and UGA first though. Here’s hoping he can keep up the momentum! W’s against them all would be nice too.

      I dunno if it has to be “huge” but he needs to not be nonexistant. And if we win at least 1 of those 3 and go 9-3 or 10-2 he could easily be in convo. His overal numbers gaudiness would push him that way. But honestly we can be no worse than 9-3. It’s rarely best player and more best player on best/top team

      Only guy that comes to mind is Bo Jackson. Auburn was 8-3, 3-3 in the SEC. I agree that we’d have to 9-3, if not 10-2, for him to even have a chance. Of course, even if he ends up invited to NY as a finalist, that would be awesome.

    This is an awesome PR move on this guys part. Having BBN on your side can be a huge boost to a career lol

    How is Tua not on that Heisman watch list? He has to be at least somewhat in the conversation… Benny has had 2 remarkable seasons, but I think the only way he even gets serious consideration is if the cats win a minimum of 8 games. When is the last time they gave a guy the Heisman trophy on a team that went 6-6 or 7-5? Cats need to win the games they’re supposed to and then Benny may have an outside shot because if we keep winning, it’s assumed that Benny is going to keep putting up crazy numbers. Go Cats.

      Tua will be by midseason surely

    Benny should win hands down, but (as everyone else had stated) overall record will make or break his campaign. Can’t expect a Heisman winner to be playing in the Music City Bowl.

    I forgot how bad the bowl ejection was
