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:
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.
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.
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.
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?
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:
A VERY short period. He may never smile again.
More like “Hey, did you get a ticket for Big Blue Madness next week?”
Yeah, it might not be happy thanksgiving when the Stoops family gathers.
Yeah, man. I can dig it.
