Videos by OutKick

X is on fire with hot takes about Brian Kelly after Florida State beat LSU late Sunday night.

The Tigers lost 45-24 to the Seminoles, and the wheels came off in the closing minutes of the third quarter through the end of the game.

It was a truly embarrassing collapse, and LSU fans are livid. They should be. Brian Kelly is being paid a fortune and fans should expect better.

The product on the field Sunday night was simply unacceptable.

Fans want LSU coach Brian Kelly fired.

Well, what do people do when they’re outraged about a sporting event? Hop onto X, formerly known as Twitter, and demand coaches be fired.

Some fans are already there after ONE SINGLE game of the 2023 season. Brian Kelly has been trending since Sunday night, and there are plenty of people online who want him to hit the unemployment line.

Kelly isn’t going anywhere.

Fans calling for coaches to be fired immediately following a loss is a tradition as old as time. People are never afraid to cut loose.

We saw it last year when fans called for Ryan Day to be fired for losing to Michigan, despite his overwhelming success as a coach.

Brian Kelly now finds himself in the same position.

Let me give everyone a quick reality check. Brian Kelly makes a fortune and his contract runs through 2031. He’s not going anywhere.

Fans can complain all they want, but the Tigers aren’t firing the coach who won the SEC West and beat Alabama just a year ago. It’s not happening.

Is it kind of funny to see on X? Sure. Will it happen? No chance in hell, but this kind of outrage is what makes college football so much fun. Trust me, the Tigers make a run and everyone will go right back to loving Brian Kelly. People are only loyal or not loyal right up until the moment they decide to switch!

  1. He might not necessarily deserve to be fired, but he darn sure deserves severe criticism for that embarrassment. He was out coached and his team was completely unprepared to play…. And Daniels simply isn’t the answer at QB. He’s an athlete not a QB. He can’t read a defense at all, the deep ball is non existent in his passing game and he zero touch on short passes.
