GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The goal from beginning of the season was Omaha. Auburn took the No. 1 team and the defending national champion to the brink in Monday's Game 3 of the Super Regional. It took extra innings to decide the winner. But while Omaha will have to wait, this year's Auburn team will be remembered for a long time.

As head coach Butch Thompson said, this team left "an unbelievable legacy."

After the game, some of the players took to Twitter to thank their teammates, coaches and the Auburn fans who have supported them along the way.

This year's Auburn team, who finished 43-23, didn't just have the support of the Auburn fans this season. It had the support of the entire university -- from the president to the athletics director to fellow coaches and student-athletes of other sports. They all took to Twitter to show love to the Tigers after Monday's game.

The word that kept coming up time and time again? Special.
