A sampling of tweets and statuses around the web on Saturday
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Saturday, Dec. 3, 2011 wasn't your normal sports day around Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Ky.
The college's men's soccer team won in overtime to tally their ninth NAIA National Championship, the men's basketball team upset the nation's top ranked team in the University of Pikeville (Ky.), women's basketball rolled to a lopsided win against Pikeville and wrestling had two grapplers win titles at a competitive open event.
In short, it was a fun day to be a Blue Raider.
And in no place was the fandom and support more evident than on the various social media vehicles available to fans, administrators, students and student-athletes alike.
