Twitter is an emotional amplifier. It makes the highs higher, and the lows rock bottom. Here are some of the best Tweets after UNC’s huge win on Coach K Night.

To those who can tweet during Carolina games, I applaud you. I’m usually such a nervous wreck, I can barely keep up with the TV screen and box score to do much of anything else. But as soon as the game’s over, I head straight to Twitter, where I know the fire takes and shit-talking have started in earnest.

The stakes were the highest I can ever remember on Saturday night. Duke Twitter fans expected a coronation. And why shouldn’t they? The Blue Devils trounced UNC in Chapel Hill and had superior talent. Plus they were starring in a Broadway classic, open one night only: Coach K’s Curtain Call.

As we know, things did not go to plan, and the delicious salty tears of Duke fans were there for the taking. Carolina Twitter meant to collect. Here are some of the best post-Duke game Tweets from UNC’s 94-81 win.
