A lot of drama came from Monday night’s BCS National Championship Game. It was being played in one of the most historic stadiums in the country in the Rose Bowl, a place neither team had ever played. It was also the last hurrah of the controversial BCS era.
In the end, it took a clutch performance by Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston to give the Seminoles just enough to take down the Auburn Tigers.
The great thing about games like this in the era of social media is that you can gather so much info about what is happening in a game without watching one bit of it on a TV. We’ve gathered some of the best tweets that were sent out last night and put them here in one spot for your enjoyment. Take it in one last time, because college football will have a new face next fall.
Rooting for Auburn, because I’m a knowledgeable, life-long fan of theirs. WAR DAMN OSTRICH! #BCSChampionship

Rooting for Auburn because they are in the SEC is akin to rooting for Satan because he’s in the bible.

That exchange of punts worked out for Auburn like their exchange of head coaches did.

For failing the entire South and SEC I hereby declare they from this point forward be known as the “Auburn Carpetbaggers.”

It’s ok, Auburn. Not every team can win their first game in The Rose Bowl, like Alabama did.

One thing is clear: The state of Alabama needs to get a little more serious about football.

SEC will just have to be content with winning 7 out of the last 8 national championships. Might take a while but I think they will be OK.
