We normally don't like to intertwine college football politics around these parts, but we'll make an exception for this.
Friday, the official Republican National Committee account tweeted the following question:
Tell us your top issues http://t.co/u6aAKiGfen Let’s win big in 2014.
— RNC (@GOP) January 16, 2014
And thus, sports fans responded. It's Twitter, did you expect people to stay on topic? College Spun compiled a list of the best football and basketball related tweets, and here are a few of the best football ones. We'll start with a question that many Alabama, Southern Cal and Dallas Cowboy fans have likely asked themselves recently.
James Franklin hasn't taken all of Vanderbilt's recruits with him to Penn State. It just may feel like it.
My football team's coach left to go to Penn State and is taking all of the recruits with him :( RT @GOP: Tell us your top issues

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier approves this tweet. If Spurrier had Twitter, he'd probably have wittily responded by now.
And this is a fantastic dig at the (now deleted) tweet from Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's mother, Dee Dee Bonner.
