‘Twas the night before Christmas, and college athletic departments were tweeting at each other. 

It started with a tweet from Michigan's athletic department, and it quickly escalated into a disjointed college sports version of “The Night Before Christmas.” 

This went on for some time. 

One more year of athletic department Christmas Eve storytelling, and it could challenge the Popeye's Bahamas Bowl as the best Dec. 24 tradition in college sports.
