Twitter can offer up some great content, so let’s see what it had to offer during the Gamecocks historic win

For the first time ever — for ANY school in the Palmetto State — South Carolina will take their talents to Phoenix following a 77-70 victory over the Florida Gators in the East Regional Final of the NCAA Tournament.

The dust still hasn’t settled on what has been an absolutely crazy weekend for Gamecocks basketball. The 20-point win over the Baylor Bears Friday night in the Sweet 16 wasn’t enough, South Carolina just had to possibly accomplish the greatest feat in the history of the athletics program.

However we’re not here debate the size of accomplishments, we’re here to watch Twitter go nuts on a historic night. Mark my words Gamecock fans, this will be a night you’ll tell as you bounce your grand kids on your knee — and what better way to remember it than outrageous tweets sent out by emotionally ravaged fans?

Here’s the best of what happened Sunday afternoon:

Sindarius Thornwell is better at basketball then you and I

Us too Avery, us too.

Hootie catches ALL the feels

*Hoooooold my haaaaaand*

Of course, there were some solid videos and memes

Famous people taking notice

And finally, how can any of us forget this gem?

Of all the cold takes that have ever been taken, is this the coldest of them all?
