The Web Reacts To Alabama Crushing LSU In BCS ChampionshipBy: Chris Richardson - January 10, 2012
As Tim Tebow demonstrated, the sports world is always a great way to get the masses talking on Twitter, and while the LSU/Alabama BCS Championship Game didn’t break the records Tim Tebow’s overtime pass did, it’s still the talk of the web. Be it sports blogs, mainstream media web outlets, or Twitter, folks are still reacting to the Alabama’s crushing defensive performance, some, however, are at the expense of LSU quarterback, Jordan Jefferson.
As of this writing, there are three Twitter trends devoted to Alabama’s BCS title-clinching win, two, however, are focusing on Jefferson’s mistakes rather than Alabama’s impressive shut out. Even the infamous LSUFreek weighs in with this appropriate mashup:

Mocksession’s gif site, Gifulmination, also captured a fantastic reaction gif from the LSU quarterback. It’s a perfect microcosm of how LSU’s night went against Bama’s incredible defense:
The takedown of Jordan Jefferson continued all across the web, with Twitter providing much of the ramped up volume aimed at Jefferson’s play:
@AschoffESPN Jordan Jefferson said he thought he played well tonight but the offense as a whole didn’t execute … discussHe high? RT
Jordan Jefferson “we didnt finish on our drives”—finish? Didnt start
Jordan Jefferson made a smart Quarterback move today! He deleted his account!
This is true, Jefferson’s Twitter account is gone. If it was up last night during the game, there’s really no telling the types of posts he had to deal with. It must have been incredibly ugly, but then again, so was his play against Bama’s defense. Speaking of, while Jordan Jefferson is getting drawn and quartered across the Internet, some folks actually remembered to give credit where it’s due, as opposed to piling on a kid who played poorly against one of the best defenses ever in college football:
The last time I saw a Tiger get beat that bad his wife had a golf club.
My Mom’s signature on her texts is “Roll Tide” don’t judge her for STILL using a signature tho lol
The best defense in the country one-upped itself tonight! Total domination and AJ McCarron played a terrific game. Roll Tide!
That last one just about sums things up, at least from Alabama’s perspective. In case you missed it, here’s the only touchdown from last night’s game, courtesy of Trent Richardson:
To the victor goes the spoils, and, as is the case nowadays, all of the Internet trends, at least for a little while.
