Alabama's 42-14 thrashing of Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game set Twitter ablaze, as everyone from LeBron James to Kate Upton got in on the action.

Of course, there was plenty to tweet about. This was the most lopsided national championship game since 2004. Alabama dominated from start to finish, jumping out to a 28-0 lead before half and pushing their advantage to 35 points midway through the third quarter.

Crimson Tide running back Eddie Lacy was named MVP for his performance. The bruising back rushed for 140 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries. He also caught two passes for 17 yards and another score.

It was a historic victory for the Crimson Tide, who have now won three national titles in four seasons. Without further ado, let's get to the best tweets of the night.

Twitter Reaction

It took just eight minutes and 48 seconds for Notre Dame to tie their largest deficit of the season, as ESPN Stats & Info mentioned.

In fact, the folks at ESPN Stats & Info were producing gold all night. Here are some more highlights.

The beatdown was so bad that many people around the country were wishing Oregon had made it to the title game instead of Notre Dame. Count the one and only LeBron James as one of those people.

Luckily for the Irish, the beautiful Kate Upton pointed out that they are not the only team in green to suffer some massive defeats this past season.

Speaking of the Jets, the always hilarious Not Bill Walton took a jab at Rex Ryan's crew as well.

But instead of dwelling on the negative, let's take a look at some positive aspects of this game.

One of the best moments was when Brent Musburger audibly drooled all over A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb. Not SportsCenter supplied some "breaking news" regarding the situation.

Of course, you can't blame Musburger for being infatuated. Even Darnell Dockett of the Arizona Cardinals was hitting on Webb. Bleacher Report's Ryan Rudnansky thankfully re-tweeted this DM fail before Dockett could delete it.

As Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports pointed out, McCarron has put up some incredible numbers in the last two national championships.

Bleacher Report's own Gabe Zaldivar bestowed the highest of honors on Alabama running back Eddie Lacy.

Lacy was so good that Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark pleaded with Nick Saban in the fourth quarter.

While Lacy was named MVP of the game, the MVP of Twitter was unquestionably Houston Texans running back Arian Foster.

Well done, Arian. Well done.
