The Miami Hurricanes’ first-half struggles in their season opener on Sunday led to the joy of one former LSU Tigers player.
Former LSU running back and current Jacksonville Jaguar Leonard Fournette trolled the Hurricanes late in the first half by posting a picture of $100 bills in the shape of the “U.” LSU led Miami 27-3 at halftime.
“Thank you @MiamiHurricanes slatt” Fournette tweeted followed by a slew of emojis including a bald eagle, two laughing faces and three crying faces.
