Yes, I'm still on a high from Saturday. This is my last bit of celebrating before we begin preparations for Stanford. Focus. But let's celebrate with the best in the Twitterverse from yesterday's game.
Quite simply, this is probably one of my favorites, because it just puts everything together into two simple words:

Moving On. First, let's start with pre-game anxiety:
Khalil Bell was just signed by the Jets, and was on his way to NYC:
I'm 3 hours ahead and headed to the airport please keep me informed on the whopping we put on Sc— Kahlil Bell (@KahlilBell32) November 17, 2012
Hell yeah, confidence.
Rivalry feelings NEVER die.
Ugh, I'd forgotten how annoying that USC fight song is. Kind of want to punt the tuba player. #learnmorethanthreenotesplease— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) November 17, 2012
Famous Dad roll call:

During the game anxiousness everywhere:
@bigjoefauria "I'm catching that thing and showing it to you as I cross the end zone mr. ref"— Korey Bosworth (@KoreyBosworth) November 17, 2012
They showed a clip from 19... 87? I can't remember.
25 years later Erik Aftholter is still out of bounds! #notbitter— Troy Aikman (@TroyAikman) November 17, 2012
Troy does though.
Even our basketball recruits were into the game.

When Anthony Barr laid out the pain on Matt Barkley:
I think Brick just killed a man. Threw a trident right into him.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) November 17, 2012
The post game tweets though, were the best. They came in from EVERYWHERE!
