Welcome back, college football

College football season is here, and if you were anywhere near a screen Thursday night, a common theme stood out: happiness. It's one of the greatest times on the field and on the Internet.

Like schoolchildren, fans woke up early in anticipation of the holiday, and, like these players, couldn't handle the excitement.
