Trevor Lawrence issued a feisty response to a Baton Rouge news anchor on Twitter this week before deleting the tweet.
Lawrence has had an unbelievable collegiate career thus far, playing in two national championships and winning one of them. The Tigers couldn't overcome Joe Burrow and the LSU Tigers this past season, though, losing 42-25 in the title game.
A Baton Rouge news anchor took a shot at Lawrence during a live segment last week. After congratulating the Clemson quarterback for getting engaged to Lawrence's girlfriend, the Baton Rouge news anchor proceeded to call Joe Burrow the Clemson quarterback's "dad."
"The Clemson quarterback got engaged last night to his long-time girlfriend, so congrats to both of them," said
Nothing better than seeing your son take the next step as a man.
Congrats to Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence on his engagement. @JoeyB is one proud dad!! #GeauxTigers#LSUpic.twitter.com/86IS8mENdF

">Baton Rouge news anchor Matt Trent. "Joe Burrow not available for comment. But don't worry Trevor, daddy's proud of you. Go Tigers."
The sarcastic dig wasn't taken very well by Lawrence. The Clemson quarterback offered a feisty response to the newscaster in a since deleted tweet. Luckily, we caught a glimpse of what Lawrence had to say in response before he deleted the tweet.
“Hahaha I love when grown men try this hard to talk about me,” Lawrence wrote on Twitter.
The 2020 College Football Playoff title game loss clearly still stings for the Clemson quarterback. Fortunately, he won't have to worry about out-dueling Joe Burrow this upcoming season.
This is without-a-doubt Lawrence's final collegiate season as he's bound to take his talents to the NFL following the 2020-21 season. Could another championship run be in the works? The Tigers could be the best team in the nation this season with Lawrence under-center.
