As has been the case for many of this year’s games, it was a showdown characterized by stingy pitching, clutch defensive plays, and one big hit to seal the deal.

So what did the fans, analysts, Vanderbilt alumni, and otherwise interested observers think of the Vanderbilt victory? Let’s take a look at some of the twitter reactions. That all has to start, of course, with ESPN national writer Buster Olney (and his alter ego?).
