Freshman forward Ben Simmons set aside a little time during interviews at the SEC Network Wednesday afternoon to tease LSU football fans that he's actually considering playing football for the Tigers. 

This isn't the first time LSU fans have heard Simmons' name brought up when talking Tigers football. Back in August, head coach Les Miles suggested that Simmons could "set the NCAA record for touchdowns" if he was willing to take some snaps. But on Wednesday, it was Simmons' turn to stir things up.

Don't expect Simmons to be strapping a helmet on anytime soon, but it's an interesting thought to say the least.
