Anybody get their voice again from screaming? Neither have I.
Alabama fans and Aggie fans alike watched CBS with bated breath, especially late into the game, as Texas A&M creeped closer and closer to upsetting the top-ranked Crimson Tide.
In the end, it was too little, too late after the Aggies failed to get the onside kick with 15 seconds on the clock. The great thing about these highly-anticipated games is that is makes for a good conversation. It makes it ten times better when the game lives up to expectations. What’s a better way to get your voice out there then on Twitter? We take a look at tweets from the game that had Twitter talking:
T-shirts I’m seeing most often: 1) BTHO Bama. 2) No. 12 jerseys 3) HOWDY
— Brett Hudson (@Brett_Hudson) September 14, 2013
#BTHOBama was a trending topic on Twitter for a while and I asked myself why it wasn’t #BTHOOBama. Then I figured it wasn’t “out of” but “outta”. Learned a lot of things in College Station this weekend.
GOODE LOWERED KOUANDJIO’S SETTLE THE F*** DOWN — Hunter Johnson (@HunterLJohnson) September 14, 2013
It didn’t seem like the offensive line was very settled during most of the game. 12 penalties were called on Alabama, 5 of them being false starts.
Run the damn OH FLEA FLICKER OK THEN. — Matt Scalici (@MattScalici) September 14, 2013
Pretty much every fan’s reaction to this:
Of course, most of the attention was focused on Johnny Football:
AJ McCarron is outplaying Manziel but CBS refuses to alter the script. JOHNNYFOOTBALL JOHNNYFOOTBALL JOHNNYFOOTBALLLLLLLL
— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) September 14, 2013
Shouldn’t have spiked the Gatorade with vodka after our second touchdown.

Speaking of that, I had the opportunity to attend Midnight Yell. One of the best experiences in COllege Football. Highly recommend every put that on their bucket list.
Pray for the farm animals in College Station tonight.

College Station, as one of other followers put it, is like Auburn without trees. But it really is a nice campus.
If I allegedly murder this ref and allegedly put his body in a wood chipper one of y’all will provide an airtight alibi right? — Kevin Ross (@BourbonWarfare) September 14, 2013
I would have. How about that targeting call/not-targeting call on Ha Ha Clinton-Dix? No ejection after review, but 15 yards anyway. That’s fair.
The worst part for Manziel and A&M would be if someone named Drake iced this game away in the second half.

And Drake was supposed to perform at Yell Practice last night, or so Twitter rumors said.
This game is fun. Not fun: Alabama’s secondary meetings this week. — Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) September 14, 2013
What I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall for that meeting. Actually, I wouldn’t. Nick Saban wouldn’t allow any creature that are in his meetings to live.

This was tweeted when Alabama was in the Red Zone for the final time of the game, up 42-35.
I really hope Saban walks to the mic & says “I appreciate your interest in the game,” before moonwalking out of the press conference. — BourbonGhost (@BourbonGhost) September 14, 2013
That would have been something to watch. Nick Saban moonwalking. Imagine that.
