Former Clemson player trolls LSU in upset loss, former LSU player fires back
The trash talk between LSU and Clemson is still going on, over 8 months after the 2 teams met for a national championship.
LSU suffered an upset loss in its first game of the season, falling to Mississippi State 44-34 behind 5 passing touchdowns and an SEC-record 623 yards by K.J. Costello. Shortly after the loss, former Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons, now with the Arizona Cardinals, hopped on social media to poke a little fun.
“One hit wonder,” Simmons tweet read.
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson, who squared off against Simmons in last year’s CFP National Championship Game in New Orleans, had a short but effective response: “42-25”.
That, of course, was the final score of the game in January, which saw LSU win its first national championship since 2007.
Both men deleted their tweets, but as is the case all too often in the information age, screenshots live forever. And in this round, it’s tough not to give the win to Chaisson.
Here is the exchange that occurred on Saturday night, which has been deleted:
