Well, there was football this weekend and that means there were plenty of great takes to capture and curate for you here. There aren’t many from during the Clemson and Texas A&M game because frankly, I was having heart palpitations and I couldn’t manage to use my phone to capture those. I will be sending the invoice from my cardiologist directly to the Clemson Athletic Department though.
Featured this week are plenty of delusional Gamecock fans (I know, that’s redundant), some very salty Aggies, and then a handful of very sad Nolefans because, if we’re talking Twitter, we’re #talkinboutthenoles. Enjoy, and feel free to add any of the wonderful tweets that you saw this weekend in the comments!

Based on the second half, I’d say the Shamecocks only had about 2* worth of heart on Saturday.

Mark Twain once said, “it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt”
Anybody else hear that lunatic on Finebaum that called Muschamp a reject and said the Gamecocks can’t drink the dawgs bath water?

Maybe that would have helped them hydrate and prevent a second half blowout?

Maybe it would be best to stop listening to that gut of yours.

Aggies about to get victimized by the dumbest rule in football. pic.twitter.com/bMtpcJ22XP

Actually, the dumbest rule in football is the tuck rule by a mile.
Clemson has gotten VERY lucky tonight. Offensive pass interference ignored & that BS touchback.
Aggies played their heart out. Great game!

I don’t think dropping 5 interceptions equates to luck, especially when one of those turned into a TD that almost caused the game to be tied.

WAHHHHHHHHHH WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Cry about it.
Block the Clemson front and the secondary gets shook.

Block [HOLD] the Clemson front…
Clemson just falling apart in the secondary. The dropoff from DL to DBs is a cliff.
— SC HS Football (@SC_HS_FB) September 9, 2018
This may be a bit extreme.
Clemson secondary look worse than ours. Goodness

I don’t know who “ours” is, but I highly doubt that unless you’re a Bama fan.
Bro I don’t even know what Samford is. If the Noles lose, I’m leaving the country
— Adam Blatt (@adam_ro3enblatt) September 9, 2018
Honestly, that might be best even though they won.
NOLES WIN! NOLES WIN!!!

Well at least one Seminoles team knows how to score.
Apparently Kevin Sumlin took so much heat at A&M for starting fast then falling apart over the second half of the year he just decided to come out of the gate sucking at Arizona and see what happens.

Whew! Throwing the heaters already.

He’s a modern day Charlie Weiss. He just needs to complete the trifecta by getting the ND job and trashing their program too.
Finally here’s a gem from Shakin The Southland in the post game write up, or, as I like to call it Overreaction Theater.
