Weekend in Tweets: 12.3.12
The SEC Championship lived up to the hype while the NFL deals with tragedy and triumph.

UGA and Alabama played in an epic battle. The SEC championship game more than surpassed the hype and showed why it’s the only conference title game that matters. The Falcons, Broncos and Patriots all clinched their divisions while the Texans guaranteed themselves a playoff spot this week. As great as this week was on the field, we did have lots of tragedy off the field. Hearing the stories of Jovan Belcher and Eric Eucker (Browns groundskeeper) both killing themselves at team facilities reminds us all that we never know what people are going through.

Who thinks Vick returns to Eagles next yr.#Idonot— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) December 3, 2012
I’m sure she’s not there for her mathematic ability.
Eli is still waiting on his apology.
Peyton Manning says Greg Schiano told him after the game that #Bucs meant no harm in firing off on kneel down play at end of the game.— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) December 3, 2012
They’ll only believe you when you win a playoff game.
The last time we won the division I was too amp! This time it's just like... Ok, now lets accomplish the nxt goal! #RiseUp2012— Sean Weatherspoon (@SeanWSpoon56) December 3, 2012
If he can hold on to the ball he has a future.
Hope you didn’t bet money on this one.
ESPN pre game said it best when asked if Pitt could win... Ummm no Charlie Batch is the QB— Matthew Barnaby (@MattBarnaby3636) December 2, 2012
You have too much time on your hands.
If you were an NFL coach, how would you throw your challenge flag? Many options, underhand, overhand, sidearm, crowhop if your all fired up— Jonathan Quick (@JonathanQuick32) December 3, 2012
Knock it down.
Young DB's watching the Seahawks game. That's why u Knock the Ball down in that situation. Or attack it with arms extended, not bent.— Brian Dawkins (@BrianDawkins) December 2, 2012
Sanchez might want to put that house on the market.
Sanchez benched w/no Tebow?! Definition of inconsistency:Has 3 games over 100 QB rating this year & 5 games under 50% completion percentage— Marcellus Wiley (@marcelluswiley) December 2, 2012
They’ve moved on you should as well.
It will go down in history.
