Texas A&M Football

The Internet reacts to Texas A&M's record-breaking win over LSU

I’m writing this story at 2am and I’m not at all tired. Alright maybe a little, but I must PRESS ON in order to bring y’all the #content you so richly deserve after a game like that.

Let’s take a stroll down Twitter Lane and see how the nation reacted to the highest-scoring college football game in the history of the FBS.

First, it was #OVER.

Whoopsies!

Dan Wolken deleted the tweet below, but the Internet never forgets, DAN.


If you recall, we’ve seen this before..


It wasn’t just reporters who were rushing to drive the final nail in A&M’s coffin — LSU players themselves gave Coach O a Gatorade bath (or as Lou Holth referred to it … Premature Gatoration).


BUT in a “kind of lucky” turn of events, Kellen Mond’s knee was down and A&M got another shot in regulation. Then they scored. Then we died.


Then Texas A&M and LSU proceeded to play another 18 hours and 27 minutes until one team died and a champion emerged victorious.



Then … uhhhh all hell broke loose?


Apparently everyone is fine and the incident is being looked into so LET’S MOVE ON.

Post-game reaction came pouring in and Whataburger started us off right by advertising breakfast tacos while also correctly referring to A&M as the “Texas Aggies.”


This tweet did NOT sit well with a Louisiana elementary principal.

 

Speaking of things not sitting well, the officiating — while favoring LSU early on — took a decided turn in A&M’s favor at the end of regulation and in overtime. And some media members were NOT PLEASED.

 

Other non-media people Longhorns were taking notice as well. Some were screaming.


Some were making (very) bad jokes.


And some were just complaining.

Oh I’m sorry that’s a media member. I think. 



Of course, LSU fans were beside themselves. If you’re prone to enjoy basking in Tiger tears, feel free to scroll through the replies to this tweet:


Enough about officiating. We’ll just leave this here and move along quietly.

 

And now is the portion of our story where we check in with former players!

 

Poor Christian Kirk was stuck in a west coast hotel room that somehow didn’t have the SEC Network.

 

Nevermind CRISIS AVERTED.

 

As you can imagine after a game like this, the #STATNERDS were out in full force.

 

And my personal favorite

 

After there were no more numbers to run, it was time to just start trolling the haters, beginning with the official account.

 

And then there’s the matter of exorcising some demons, including the dreaded Kirk Herbstreit Kiss of Death™

 

That about sums it up, Ags. Feel free to add anything I missed below.

Wherever you were — even if you left early — you won’t ever forget this game.

Well played. F the corn dog eaters. Funny, Inrhiught we were getting huge breaks too, but then even the announcers were agreeing with the referees on the knee down and 1 second on the clock. Frankly, after getting hosed so often, it was football karma.

Not 1 holding call on either team all night. Not 1. I am sure we were holding all night. But saw Mack get face masked and tackled more than 3 times...

I give anyone the big Shawn song about the refs. On that field we have been screwed so many times it's not funny. Tell any Lsu fan to go watch the 2012 game if you want to see the worlds biggest screw job!!!!

You are exactly right. Tim Brando has always hated A&M. Dude is clueless

Why is the "A&M Assistant" wearing an Alabama Red shirt? Surely if he were actually associated with the team he could come up with some properly branded Adidas swag.

How can Tim Brando be objective when he lives in Shreveport, and has a daughter that went to LSU?

I have never liked Brando's telecasts. What is his purpose of posting? I would God forbid even listen to Brent Musberger than him, and that hurts to say! Don't think we care Tim-

Brando doesn't hate the Ags... He's from BR and LOVES the Tigers... Not objective, but not a hater...

This is greatness. Sadly I'm one of those that left early when I thought it was over. By the time I was walking by Fish Pond I heard a thunderous roar and sprinted into Duddley's to watch all seven overtimes.

Moral of the story: don't ever 2%. FML.

Calling out the refs is ignorant. The refs were trying to shaft us each time. It was the replay video that kept bailing us out.

Dan Wolkens Twitter is a pathetic read. He's so bitter. Great Aggie bookend to the season for him.

He starts it by dropping the ridiculous marichol story that blows up almost immediately and then finishes it by taking a jab at A&M and Jimbo before the game is over, then deletes the tweet and spends the rest of the night listening to random Twitter dorks trying to throw shade on the game.

Go drunk, Dan. You're home.

That stinks.

My wife and I did the same thing years ago for an OSU game. We said never again will we leave when there's a chance, I'm so glad we stayed.

It was awesome!

I did it for our Ole Miss comeback 4-5 years ago. Sulkin' off to Dud's...
OTOH, postgame, the saw-em-off line stretched from front porch to back porch, maybe 60-80 folks.
A couple unexpected kisses from delirious women...'twas a decent consolation prize!
