Brian Kelly roasted on social media after LSU's heartbreaking loss to FSU
Brian Kelly’s LSU debut did not go as planned. The Tigers fell to Florida State 24-23 Sunday night at the Superdome in New Orleans, LSU’s home away from home.
LSU-FSU was the only college football game on Sunday, so it had a national audience. For the national audience, the game entertained with its unbelievable final sequence of a muffed punt, red zone fumble, final-second touchdown on a 99-yard drive and then a blocked extra point – with clock and replay review drama mixed in.
As you might expect, the CFB Twitter community had a lot to say about Kelly, particularly LSU’s disappointing showing for most of the night.
Here’s a small sample of what CFB fans and media members had to say:

I, for one, am shocked that a Brian Kelly coached team has come out totally flat in a big game against a brand name opponent

I know LSU didn't pay Brian Kelly $95 million just to get punked by an FSU team with 4-straight losing seasons in a de facto home game in his first game. ?

LSU paid almost 100 million for Brian Kelly and the fans are ready to fire him before game one is finished. I am here for it. ????

Mike Norvell and Brian Kelly are having a mid off. This is comical.

Brian Kelly has that look. That look you don’t want your first year coach in his first game to have….#LSUvsFSU

It took 45 minutes for Brian Kelly to show emotion. No way he does well in the SEC. Saban and Smart are halfway on the field from kickoff to final whistle

It’s a long season and college football fans and media love to overreact. But it was a rough night for Kelly and the LSU family.
