Benny Snell voted 2nd Team All-SEC by league coaches

One day after he was named First Team All-SEC by the Associated Press, Benny Snell has been voted…Second Team All-SEC by the league’s coaches. 

Wait, what?

Auburn’s Kerryon Johnson and Georgia’s Nick Chubb were given First Team honors in the coaches’ vote, while Snell and LSU’s Derrius Guice were placed on the Second Team. Johnson’s First Team nod is a given; after Saturday’s SEC Championship, he now leads the SEC in rushing yards with 1,320 to Benny’s 1,318. But fellow First Team selection Nick Chubb had 1,175 yards and 13 touchdowns to Benny’s 18. Yes, he had to share the backfield with Sony Michel, but given a green offensive line and the number of school records Benny broke this season, how can you not give it to him? Did I mention that Herschel Walker and Knowshon Moreno are the only other SEC running backs to record more than 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns in their first two seasons?

Regardless, at least Benny got some credit after not even making the media’s preseason First, Second, or Third Teams back at Media Days in July. That was laughable then, and it’s laughable now.

    If Benny Snell played for Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, or LSU, he would have been player of the year and 1st team All-SEC. Not only that, he would have been 1st team All-American. Not only that, he would being pushed by the SEC office in Birmingham for the Heisman Throphy.

    Politics…the big boys just have a hard time accepting the fact that a the best running back in the SEC is at lowly Kentucky.

      Absolutely agree.

      You’re wrong. Snell is very good but he’s not the best in the SEC. The other two will go higher in the NFL draft if Snell was available for draft . Not a knock at all, the third best. And throw the lame excuse of “lowly” Kentucky. LOUISVILLE JUST HAD A HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER. Let that sink in. Unless you want to call LOUISVILLE A BIG BOY. You JUST HAVE TO BE THE BEST like LAMAR JACKSON is…..Your call….

      And Louisville still didn’t make the CFP with a Heisman winner. LOLOLOL

      Football is more than a one player sport Stupid. I could say ‘and UK lost to two losing teams’ with Benny Snell as RB’. It I won’t. Smh…

      Nah. It bothers you knowing that you didn’t make the CFP last year or this year, with the best player in football on the team.

    I love Snell, but Chubb posted 6.2 yards per carry to Snell’s 5.1, pretty simple really.

    1. JusSayin

      Snell did that with a patch work offensive line that gives up like 4 sacks a game. Lord only knows what unholy hell he would reap behind Georgia’s offensive line.

      Also Chubb rips off a lot of big runs but he also will give you 6 or 7 carries where he gains less than 3. Snell litterallly averages almost 5 yards per carry.

    With a better OLine, sure, others posted better numbers. Snell did what he did with less surrounding him. Just an SEC bias against UK

    A shout out to our coaching staff for bring Benny to Lexington and for the way he is developing.

    I could’ve had 6.2 yards a carry with Georgia’s offensive line. If you put Chubb at Kentucky he wouldn’t have near the stats Benny does. Snell is better

    I love Benny! But the reason I think Chubb got it is because this weekend he became the second leading rusher in SEC history.
