Glenn Guilbeau Lafayette Daily Advertiser Published 5:49 p.m. UTC Aug 30, 2018 BATON ROUGE — The season of lowered expectations is on for LSU football. The Tigers are No. 24 in the USA TODAY Coaches poll and No. 25 in the Associated Press media poll. They were picked to finish fifth out of seven teams in the Southeastern Conference West at SEC Media Days by reporters, who hadn’t picked LSU that low this century. ESPN’s Power Index picked LSU to finish 6-6 in April. LSU has not been selected lower than No. 21 in an AP preseason poll since 2000, which was the last time LSU was not ranked entering a season. That happened after the Tigers were terrible in 1999 under Coach Gerry DiNardo and finished at 3-8 overall and 1-7 in the SEC with a 10-game SEC losing skid that started in 1998 when LSU was 4-7 and 2-6.

Jon Hale Louisville Courier Journal Published 3:04 p.m. UTC Jul 17, 2018 ATLANTA – Almost seven months removed from his controversial Music City Bowl ejection, star Kentucky running back Benny Snell is ready to acknowledge a silver lining in the incident. “It was a blessing in disguise, me being kicked out,” Snell said Monday during UK’s stop at SEC Media Days. “More people know who I am now because of that, so it’s not all negative.” Snell was ejected in the second quarter of UK’s Music City Bowl loss to Northwestern for making contact with an official after he swiped away an official’s arms as he tried to help Snell up from the ground following a 7-yard loss.
