Reactions from Twitterverse: Wake vs Gardner-Webb

As you may expect, there wasn't a whole lot of chatter on social media during a Wake vs Gardner-Webb night game. Let's check out what those who were watching the game had to say though...

In a storm-delayed game that took place at the same time as the Saturday night primetime games, the reaction from our twitter friends was much less populous this week.  Join me as I take you through the game in the eyes of others below.

It started out as a beautiful day to tailgate on a Saturday in the South

Once the game started, the Deacs were moving the ball quickly and making plays, only to be slowed by turnovers bouncing of the hands of our receivers

Students were still enjoying themselves though, even the visiting basketball recruits
