News broke Tuesday night that Georgia planned to hire Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart to be the school's next head coach. While the move didn't come as a surprise, the timing did. 

The Crimson Tide is just a few days away from playing in the SEC Championship Game and currently ranked No. 2 in the College Football Playoff. The team is preparing for a matchup with Florida and the opportunity to earn another birth in the semifinals.

On Twitter, college football fans opined on the move and speculated on who else might leave Tuscaloosa for Athens. Even a handful of Alabama players shared their reaction with the rest of the world.
