Brian Kelly’s Shirt Goes Viral After LSU Dominates Ole Miss (Photos)

Ole Miss came into Saturday’s showdown against LSU regarded by many as one of the best college football teams in the country.

The Tigers, by comparison, were universally acknowledged as a group in the midst of a down year.

Which made the end result and how both squads got there all the more stunning.

Not only did Brian Kelly beat down Lane Kiffin – but he dominated him. From the second quarter and onward, this wasn’t even much of a game.

Afterward, an interesting little social media thing ended up going viral sort of the way Kelly’s daughter’s provocative video from last week did.

Back in late January of this year, Kiffin mocked Kelly for starring in a now-infamous dance video:

Well, after Saturday’s absolute beatdown, the LSU football Twitter account issued a response.

The shirt Kelly is wearing is incredible:

The “no rat poison” reference there is to Kiffin having stolen Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s catchphrase regarding the media filling people’s heads with a sense of false greatness.

Fans loved it:

To the winner go the spoils, and Kelly definitely emerged from this weekend’s battle as the winner. LSU going on a 42-3 run to close out the game is absolutely mind-boggling. Particularly given that Ole Miss opened the outing up with a 17-3 lead.

It looked over at that point.

After that awful Week 1 loss to Florida State, the Tigers looked cooked. Most expected an especially humiliating season from that point forward. The Tennessee loss was obviously to be expected, but a 27-point blowout also isn’t exactly the most respectable way to go out.

Aside from those two outings, though – LSU has looked pretty good. A lot better than most expected them to.

Obviously so far this year the program has gone viral for off-the-field stuff like fans getting frisky in the stands and Coach O being Coach O with cheerleaders, but the on-the-field product is actually quite strong as well.

Time will tell if the Tigers actually end up being good in the Kelly Era, but they’re certainly off to a strong start.

Momentum is an important thing in college football – and LSU has a lot of it right now.

Will they be able to build on it going forward?

Time will tell.
