Twitter Thursday: Texas A&M

This week’s Twitter Thursday starts with some very high praise from cornerback John Fulton to true freshman wideout Amari Cooper.

HaHa Clinton-Dix is grasping for straws here. He’ll do anything to get a tweet back from THE Carson Tinker.

Tinker didn’t respond. The stench of rejection, folks.

Of course, the Presidential election on Tuesday saw some players come out in support of the results.

Other, very much like myself, couldn’t make themselves care.

Update on the aftermath in Arkansas

Earlier today, I was able to have a conversation with Marisa Vinson, a senior at the University of Arkansas, about the status of the football program after Alabama’s 52-0 win in Fayetteville. And, since this is 2012, the conversation took place over Twitter.

Here’s the breakdown.

Tide and Tigers play match to a tie on TV

Under the bright lights of CSS, Alabama and LSU played to a 1-1 draw to end its first SEC road trip of the year with a 0-1-1 record.

LSU took a 1-0 lead into halftime, a lead that was taken away with a Pia Rijsdijk goal in the 51st minute. She scored her fourth goal of the season off of a Theresa Diederich assist.

Alabama will play host to Georgia and Ole Miss next weekend, still in search for its first SEC win of the season.

Welcome back to SEC play. After putting together one of the best nonconference performances in the program’s recent history, the Tide opened SEC play by visiting No. 23 Tennessee and losing 2-1 in overtime.

Alabama got an early lead from a goal in the 12th minute by Laura Lee Smith header coming off of a Merel Van Dongen corner kick. Five minutes later, Tennessee knotted the match with a goal from Hannah Wilkinson.

Tennessee was in control of the match, outshooting the Tide 25-12 and was finally able to break through after seven minutes of the first overtime period, giving the Lady Vols the win.

Alabama will continue its SEC road trip with a visit to Baton Rouge and the LSU Tigers, a game that will be televised on CSS.
