College Football Novels: Who Said What On Twitter?

One Great Season

A pretty neat thread had some college football writers and fans dropping the funny on Twitter Wednesday night.

Folks were using the names of real novels to headline popular — and better yet, some obscure — college football storylines. Below are some of the better ones I found between 11 p.m. and midnight, before I had to turn my attention to Joaquin Phoenix's visit with David Letterman. Remember, you can always follow OGS on Twitter @onegreatseason.
