Brian Kelly, who was born and raised simply exterior of Boston, will not be from the south. He performed at Assumption, additionally not within the south. Kelly then coached at Grand Valley State, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, and Notre Dame — none of which, you guessed it, are within the south.
The Bayou is a robust place although, and it took solely 48 hours for Kelly to develop a stunningly thick southern accent. Bizarre.
That is hilariously unhealthy. It’s Nicholas Cage in Con Air unhealthy. It’s Lucas Black in Friday Evening Lights unhealthy. The entire thing is surreal. I can’t fathom why Kelly thought he needed to faux a southern accent simply to ingratiate himself to Louisiana. Imagine it or not, individuals from the south are used to listening to individuals speak in several accents, they usually don’t maintain it in opposition to them!
As somebody who moved from Australia to North Carolina I can attest at occasions issues had been misplaced in translation. Positive, I had a classmate in school assume I used to be a snowboarding knowledgeable as a result of they didn’t know the distinction between Australia and Austria. Completely there have been occasions individuals couldn’t perceive what I used to be saying — however I by no means felt the necessity to go full Foghorn Leghorn to win pals.
Simply in case you assume that is everybody piling on Brian Kelly, he deserves it. Jeff Darlington did a breakdown of Kelly saying “household” TWO DAYS AGO at Notre Dame, in comparison with final evening.
I made a decision to go tremendous investigatory. Right here’s Brian Kelly saying “household” two days in the past at Notre Dame… and Brian Kelly saying “household” immediately at LSU. A few of my finest work. pic.twitter.com/JTzuIA2s2n

Hoo boy that is going to be attention-grabbing to observe. This week Bomani Jones and Spencer Corridor mentioned Kelly going to LSU, and why relationship actually shouldn’t mesh.
So, except for the cornball accent taken out of a horrible appearing class, how are followers going to obtain Kelly saying “I haven’t even received all MY video games but”? It hasn’t been every week and he’s already setting this as much as inform folks that it’s all about him. Sorry, let me translate that into Kelly’s new parlance … ahem.
I do declare it ain’t been every week but and Brian Kelly’s flappin’ his gums sayin’ it’s all about him. It’s sufficient to offer me the vapors.
It’s okay Brian, you’ll quickly find out about “bless your coronary heart.” It’s a seemingly innocuous phrase dripping in sass used within the south to melt the blow of an insult, or simply wink at these round you to allow them to know your condemnation. So Brian, you actually don’t must fake to be from the south … bless your coronary heart.
