While the Upset Saturday we’ve been waiting for came this weekend, Alabama and Kentucky had little chance of being the thriller that many games were in Week 7. Alabama ended up dominating the Wildcats 48-7, with all 48 of Alabama’s points coming from the second, third and fourth quarters. It seems, however, no matter if it’s a blowout or a four-quarter game, the wittiness of Twitter always seems constantly good. Here’s the best tweets from the game:
ESPN 2 IS DOWN ON CAMPUS. HOLY MOLY. IT BETTER START WORKING SOON.
— Patrick Mitchell (@PatrickMit) October 12, 2013
There was a minor…no…a major scare when 6pm CT hit and many DirectTV subscribers in Alabama, which included the University of Alabama’s cable system, were not getting ESPN2. Many subscribers 5 minutes into the game reported it being back on, but it seemed most of the students on campus who wanted to spend their time watching the game either had to go to a bar or watch it online.
Oh dear. “Plaid hat” was just used to reference Bear Bryant. The explosions your hear are Bama fans combusting. — Thomas Watts (@ThomasHWatts) October 12, 2013
It’s not plaid, ESPN. It’s houndstooth. Know your fashion. But it wasn’t the only complaint from the fans about ESPN’s commentary:
Katherine Webb didn’t appreciate Todd McShay’s analysis of her boyfriend’s draft chances.
Crap. We broke Whitlow. Did you know he’s from Alabama?

RT @jonsol ESPN2 says Kentucky QB Whitlow has ankle injury and tears in his eyes. He got carted off to locker room.
— Marquavius Burnett (@Marq_Burnett) October 12, 2013
Tough break for Jalen Whitlow. Thankfully, his x-rays came out negative, so hopefully he’ll be back sooner than we know it. He is a native of Prattville, AL.
Two drives in a row, Alabama fumbled within the red zone, one each from Kenyan Drake and T.J. Yeldon.
I hope Kentucky had plans already to remodel their stadium. Saban is going to destroy it during halftime.

Fortunately, they are. But it will likely reduce the capacity of Commonwealth Stadium.

They don’t just let any referee officiate games anymore, do they?
New verb in the vocabulary is “Christioning,” which is waving everyone off, then scooping the punt on the bounce yourself.
— Cecil Hurt (@CecilHurt) October 13, 2013
It gets me nervous everytime he does that. Please stop doing that, Christion Jones. My heart can’t take no more of those.
We also had a series of “SABAN’S MAD YALL” tweets:
Saban is about to go Pacino Every Given Sunday at half. Godspeed to all of you with a false start on your resume.
— Not Crimson White (@NotCrimsonWhite) October 13, 2013
If Coach Saban walks in a room holding a 2 x 4 you can bet your life that someone’s gonna learn something.

A VERY short period. He may never smile again.
“Well at least we scored on em… Ole Miss didn’t” -every Kentucky fan right now
— Trey Pickett (@talltrey5) October 13, 2013
More like “Hey, did you get a ticket for Big Blue Madness next week?”
— Ricky Muncie, RBR (@RickyRBR) October 13, 2013
Yeah, it might not be happy thanksgiving when the Stoops family gathers.
Saban: “We just try to do things the Bama way, man.”
— Marc Torrence (@marctorrence) October 13, 2013
Yeah, man. I can dig it.
A few more bonus tweets:
If you don’t like college football I assume you kick puppies and hate America.
— Ryan Armstrong (@rmarmstrong88) October 12, 2013
BRB. Gotta convince my newborn that yelling at the TV during football games isn’t pointless and/or stupid.
