Monday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox reacts to fans piling on Brian Kelly after his debut loss with LSU. It's easy to blame the hate on him leaving Notre Dame, but coaches leave their programs all the time. The truth is that hate was amplified by him putting on a fake southern access and displaying how full of it he really is.

Jonas Knox: "If not for a blocked extra point, we could be talking about a crazy comeback win, nuts on the table, length to the field drive to get into overtime for Brian Kelly in his debut. Instead what we get is everybody burring the guy. I'm not trying to ball wash him. I'm not trying to be part of the Brian Kelly Defense League. I'm just saying this has got less to do with the fact that he left Notre Dame to go to LSU and it's got everything to do with the fact that the guy gave a fake Louisiana accent and let everybody know how the stuff was made."
