Florida State Player Trolls Brian Kelly After Beating LSU Sunday Night

Florida State Football: Seminoles' 2021 Spring Preview

Florida State football players are having some fun with Brian Kelly following the Seminoles' thrilling 24-23 win over the LSU Tigers on Sunday night. 

FSU offensive lineman Dillan R. Gibbons trolled Kelly on Twitter, calling him out for using a "fake accent." Kelly, of course, went viral during the offseason for some sort of new accent he developed from his short stay in Baton Rouge. 

Gibbons called him out for it following the Seminoles' dramatic victory over LSU Sunday night. 

"No fake accents on this team… #GoNoles #KeepCLIMBing," said Gibbons.

Ouch. Talk about rubbing salt in the wound. 

Sports Illustrated has more on Brian Kelly's fake accent:

Kelly, who attempted a fake Southern accent in his first speech to the LSU faithful, was repeatedly mocked for the rest of the offseason after leaving Notre Dame and signing a 10-year contract with LSU worth over $100 million.

That might be the last time we hear Brian Kelly use a fake accent.
