Bowl game twitter was phenomenal, but not just for our bowl game. Baylor, TCU, WVU, and KSU all had their bowl games since the last TWITDC. I was quite enthralled with twitter this week, it was an absolute blast for me and I think y'all enjoyed some of the TTU twittersphere's fire tweets. It might get a little long but please enjoy some of my personal favorites.
Texas Tech Men's Basketball has a solid shot at being ranked. What a time to be alive.— Hunter Cooke (@HunterCookeVTM) January 2, 2016
"What a time, to be alive. You and yours, vs. me and mine" - anonymous.
And that's the game, Tech beats UT 82-74. What a great win for TTU on their way to being a legit force in the conference this year.— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 2, 2016
Basketball is so much more enjoyable when your team is kickin butts and taking names.

My one wish is for twitter to expand past 140 characters to allow for more fire emojis.
Nick Saban says guns up beat Texas! pic.twitter.com/XhyyYsPPMo— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 2, 2016
SOURCES: Nick Saban to consider DB coaching position at Texas Tech. (This is false. I have no sources. I am 98% hot air and 2% milk.)
THE BIG XII ONLY HAS 10 TEAMS IN IT! pic.twitter.com/Mb11XuzmpN— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 2, 2016
This meme was fun for the 3 hours it lasted.
Here is the actual tally of "Boomer Sooners" played by the OU band in 2015. An insane 948 times pic.twitter.com/V0WxNu7F1O— Pick Six Previews (@PickSixPreviews) January 1, 2016
May God have mercy on the poor soul that actually went through the tape and counted this.
How do I get this vine as a tattoo https://t.co/KjFgZ2MH8a— KP (@ColstonLateral) January 1, 2016
I know two Nick Saban's in one post is hard to stomach but I like my 2% milk comment earlier and I peed a little when I saw this vine. No more Saban I promise.
We are now closer to solving the great mystery of our time: what is a catch?— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 1, 2016
Honestly I can't remember which catch/noncatch this was referencing but it is always relevant. Always.
Career bowl wins: Davis Webb-1 Baker Mayfield-0— Matthew Saunders (@HiImMateo) January 1, 2016
I don't know Matthew, but I'm sure we would be friends.
@vivathematador Scholarships can't be given out until after each semester. Baker left before the new semester started. Not Tech's fault ESPN— Wreck 'Em Red (@WreckEm_Red) January 1, 2016
The whole world needs to see this tweet.
Somebody should give that Baker kid a scholarship, he's pretty good.— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 1, 2016
This is my favorite tweet that I have ever tweeted, and it isn't particularly close.
@vivathematador BM's been solid for a while, but I don't think BM reaches the next level until the runs start— Kessel Run Rick Ross (@skippable) December 31, 2015
Any tweet that makes me audibly cackle deserves more than 4 likes. @skippable done good with this'n.
Thank You Texas Tech University. #GunsUp pic.twitter.com/csyPKhmhCe— Davis Webb (@Davis_Webb7) December 31, 2015
This was probably the most important tweet this week in the TTU twittersphere. Honestly I can't say enough about what a great dude Davis is. I think I speak for all Red Raiders in saying thanks for all you did here Mr. Webb, and best of luck in all your future endeavors.
Classy by Kliff Kingsbury. After his presser he went and waited for #LSU team. Congratulated players and coaches. pic.twitter.com/TZ5Il80uLc— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) December 30, 2015
Classy Kliff, I'm glad he's my team's coach.
I am incredibly proud to be a Red Raider after this game, well done gentlemen and thanks for an excellent season. See y'all at spring game!— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
FINALLY! We made it to the game good gravy Brice stop tweeting so dang much.
Also HUUUUGE shoutout to David Gibbs. He did as good a job as he could with what he had and he coached the heck out of them tonight.— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
The masses required some positivity after a bit of a rough game.
We held Leonard Fournette under 300 yards so it's something! pic.twitter.com/LMSCMaWKEF— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
Just know that whenever it gets bad VTM will be here to comfort you with sarcasm and puppy gifs.
My reaction when Fournette touches the ball pic.twitter.com/7CQuiaweRK— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
Sometimes you just find the perfect gif.
PAT HAS SHRUGGED OFF THE EXISTING RULES OF REALITY AND TRANSCENDED TO A NEW LEVEL OF GREATNESS!— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
Pat did some pretty great stuff in that game, my capslock took over.
WE STOPPED LEONARD FOURNETTE IN THE BACKFIELD!!!— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
We sounded the alarms!
.@vivathematador could you stop that forsaken bell? It's pretty annoying.— FWtCT (@mstatesports) December 30, 2015
Our clanga clanga friends over in Starkville didn't like our bells. How unfortunate.
RING DA BELL, HERE COMES DA #7 CHOO CHOO— Pod KATT (@valleyshook) December 30, 2015
At least somebody was having fun!
Just sitting here waiting for Leonard Fournette to stop destroying us. pic.twitter.com/iugp6BFOqk— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
More proper meme usage.
When you get whooped but you're still proud to be a Red Raider. pic.twitter.com/k2BvdLBjKO— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) December 30, 2015
Aaaand I saved the best for last. If you made it this far this is your treat. This is the end of football season so the amount of fire tweets will probably decline. I hope you enjoyed the last football edition of TWITDC. As always @ me on @vivathematador or @80gradewhitt. If you aren't following both of those accounts please fix your mistake immediately. Anyways love y'all and I'll see you around the internet.
