Whenever something completely over-the-top is happening, you can rely on Twitter to put a megaphone up to it. So when things got a little ridiculous in the SEC Network’s debut night of programming, Twitter was at its best. Here are just a handful of the best reaction tweets from various sports bloggers and fans.

ESPN “The Ocho” was always inevitable, wasn’t it?
Meanwhile, in Alabama…
I can’t wait until SEC fans start calling the network “biast.” Probably already happening.

Those guys in the pool above look like prime suspects.
USC fans are the most excited about the SEC network, I guess that’s because they’ve won so many SEC championships. — Ashley Collins (@Ashncoll) August 14, 2014
Obligatory jab at South Carolina is obligatory.

I don’t even want to know what the context of this remark was.
The SEC Network just told the 2013 Iron Bowl through the eyes of Melissa Joan Hart. Amazing. — LostLettermen.com (@LostLettermen) August 15, 2014
I have seen the future of college football coverage and it is Melissa Joan Hart talking about Alabama football…
Someone get Melissa Joan Hart her own show on the SEC Network IMMEDIATELY: https://t.co/IzYwo0Lz8j

Good lord, ESPN really did launch this network just to continue their love affair with Tim Tebow.
Y’all are really going to be mad when ESPN launches the SEC Network Network. — Ryan Nanni (@celebrityhottub) August 14, 2014
It couldn’t possibly be any more ridiculous, right? I mean, what could be more absurd than deciding to launch a network on Tebow’s birthday just so you can give him a cake?
Actually, don’t answer that…
