All the best SEC Championship highlights, celebrations, tweets, and interviews

You can stop pinching yourself now. It really happened. The Vols won a share of the SEC regular-season championship last night by out-toughing the Georgia Bulldogs, 66-61. It was a win that welcomed back to Knoxville that old familiar championship feeling for which we’ve been pining for far too long. You know it’s true when they’re printing and selling Vols SEC Championship Tees.

Here’s a collection of all of the best post-game tweets, highlights, celebrations, and interviews, because basking in all that stuff is what you do after a championship. It’s in the manual. (Please add any we may have missed in the comments section.)

But before the post-game stuff, here’s a warm up:
